Deconstructed, oversized, dimensional and layered. These are just some of the many takes on denim that make up Ksenia Schnaider’s fall 16 winter line. Ksenia and Anton, two Kiev-based designers wanted to create basic pieces of clothing with a twist and offer looks that that would be far from ordinary.
Their demi denim, a name that they coined after a suggestion from Instagram is made up of three pairs of regular jeans that are taken apart and sewn back together that mix the cut of trousers with shorts and a skirt. You’ll see raw edges, mixed washes and detailed construction to make this wardrobe staple refreshed.
The collection is also made up button downs, easy-to-wear dresses and sweatshirts embroidered with 100% Cotton” or “100% Nothing” touting the realness of the garments. The designers believe:
We live in the world, where nothing is 100% natural anymore: not food, not clothes, not even feelings. Ksenia and Anton, as designers, decided to argue with this tendency by creating a 100% real collection. If it is a shirt, then it is sewed according to all the canons of traditional shirts; if it is a dress, it is the most real dress of all.
