Creative wunderkind Gosha Rubchinskiy hits up Dazed with a preview of his Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Sticking strongly to his signature design aesthetic, a number of streetwear basics are filtered through his distinct post-Soviet eye and then modeled by two brothers from Corsica, who he chose because they look “similar to classic art Italian statues.”
The iconic hammer and sickle are featured heavily throughout, while “1984” (a reference to George Orwell’s groundbreaking dystopian novel) finds its way into certain key pieces. Other than that, it’s business as usual for the Russian creative and is sure to please his fans and even wrangle some new ones.
If you haven’t already, show your support for Gosha in the first installment of our annual awards series, the Highsnobiety Crowns, recognizing among other things, the Best Breakthrough Brand.
