Our Chat With PITCHOUGUINA Designer + AW2014 Collection
Few months ago we discovered designer Anna Pitchouguina and her spring summer 2014 collection, now we get Anna to chat with us about her designs created for the coming season.
What is the main source of inspiration for Autumn Winter 2014.15 collection, as well as your creative process?
The creative process for us always starts with the fabrication, general mood and the designs and silhouettes evolve slowly from that point onwards. We get inspired by similar awkward behaviours and dreamy attitudes each season. This time we though a bit more often about naked trees, foot steps on the snow, cold chilly weather and massive bridges late in the evening with our girl walking by, listening to Willy Mason. This kind of mood. For AW14_15 we got obsessed with wools and heavy corduroys decorated with heavy thread embroidery roses- what turned into coats jackets and warm, wintery dresses. We mixed it up then with super delicate french lace, tiny Delica glass beads, organza and beautiful melancholic digital print on silk georgette. Illustrations for the collection were created by Yelena Bryksenkova.
I admire hardworking and ambitious designers. I think I look up to the younger names more, as I can relate to them easier. It takes a lot of work, time, persistence and quite a bit of luck, so all the hardworking creative people excite me as I am sure they will get that luck part soon!
