The second collaboration between young designer Masha Reva and Kiev-based brand Syndicate resulted in these crazy Odessa Series. Masha Reva, originally from Odessa, who now lives and works between London and Kiev, is studying MA in fashion design in the Central Saint Martins.

The Land of Cockaigneis a mythical land of plenty, an imaginary place of extreme luxury from medieval tales. Martijn van Strien, graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven and constant experimentator, sought for inspiration in paintings depicting European kings and nobles of the era from the Dark Ages through to the Age of Enlightenment. Extravagance and splendour of handcrafted materials and exaggerated silhouettes were the starting point for working on his own fabrics. Take a look at "ode to one of histories’ most luxurious fashion eras". More info at http://cargocollective.com/martijnvanstrien
Edie Karimova is a young fashion designer from Ukraine, who founded her own label 1,5 year ago. She took part in Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days and was on the shortlist of Harper's Bazaar Fashion Forward 2013. Simple, yet interesting silhouettes and beautiful photography by Tasya Kudryk make a great combination of sophistication and tenderness. Austere but feminine looks and minimal approach makes Karimova the emerging designer to watch.
"Collection s/s14 exalts the combination of power and tenderness. Clean cut and lapidary silhouette, traditional and new technologies (handcrafted shoes, 3d modeling of clothes and 3d modeled and printed bracelet) – is underline of this collection." see more athttp://ediekarimova.com/
