Enchanted by Izmaylova

The makings of a successful up-and-coming fashion brand:
*Take the remarkable talents of two forward thinking designers; 
*One from Moscow, the other Paris;
*Both design graduates from London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martin respectively,
*Who cite their influences as 'Russian Imperialism' and 'Contemporary England',
*Move their atelier to London, Stir it all up and you have Izmaylova.

Releasing their first pret-a-porter collection in 2012, designers Antonia Izmaylova & Nathanael Gam debuted to a stellar response. Their concept of fashion is based on wearable luxury, a neoteric sense of design & artistically engineered pieces that are modern and distinctive.

For 2013, Izmaylova flaunts geometric lines, sharp cuts and sculpted shapes in canary yellow, black, white and golden sandy beige. The razor-edged ensembles are allayed by lush fabrics like silk organza, georgette, metallic lace and ostrich feathers. Strapless built-in corsets, asymmetrical peplums, cut-and-paste pieces and sheer linear inserts are the key constituents of this stirring collection. Click on the images for a larger view.









All of these exquisite looks can be purchased via the Izamaylova website. Ideally suited for an engagement party or wedding reception, cocktail dresses range from £315 to £695 and £735 for an evening gown. Although the brand is fairly new to the world of high fashion, I predict big things for them in future, and a few celebrities (Emma Roberts, Elizabeth Banks, Nicole Scherzinger and Lucy Hale) will surely agree. 
I've been enchanted by the 'Dahlia' & 'Candytuft' dresses. How about you?

I love 'Gilia Black' :)

MateaTPol said...

Im totally for black dresses!

Katie Q. said...

Ooooh, I got so excited over 'Russian Imperialism'! That just has all of the makings for an awesome line and I really like how they didn't go overboard with the influences. (It's so structures and architectural!) Id have to say that Tuberose is my favorite, it's such a pretty mix of soft and hard and I love anything beige/nude. (And throw in some feathers on a dress and it's perfect! You've really gotten me hooked on the feathers, ever since that post with the crazy feathered jacket. You'd be an awesome sales girl.)

Those black dresses are sharp...but I wouldn't touch anything that has ostrich plumes on it. Feathers are just a tad too radical for me :)
