This post is a bit of a resume of my life right now and also I want to re-establish my quirky roots for this blog which I recently have lost a bit. I want to ramble about my love all all things Russian especially, the Russian aristocracy and I want to show and remind you for Gosha's work again.
Firstly I want to remind you of the article I have done in February 2011 called - The Russian Revolution- Designer Gosha Rubchinskiy- you might just click on the link and read quickly through it again. I just saw on TV yesterday a documentary about filthy rich Russia- not about the normal Russian people- just about the scary rich ones. Yes, they are scary, they have fucking no taste at all, everything is brash, cheaply- rich, this expression is a contradiction on its own already, but the only way I can put it! The Russian killed of their aristocracy in the years of 1917-1945, and so killed a lot of their taste, culture and history.
Yet luckily, while the old nobles are recovering their ancestral awareness. There is a new aristocracy establishing themselves in today's Russia. I'm not talking about the 'New Money' counts and princes. No, there are loads of highly talented and creative designers and artists around in Russia, highly spirited, true to themselves. proud and not willing to break or be seduced by Gucci & Vuitton and the greed of the financial sector. These truly noble spirits re-invent current Russia with its communist past and tsarists history. They pick up on everything that surrounds them in such a impressive country. One of them is fashion designer/ photographer and all round artist Gosha Rubchinskiy. I want to show you his amazing fashion editorial he did for ANOTHER MAN- Issue 16 Spring Summer 2013 styled by 'ueber' stylist Robbie Spencer and photographed by the artist Rubchinskiy himself:

On top of all my thoughts, yesterday, I found Gosha Rubchinskiy fashion on one of my favourite shopping sites namely LN- CC! Eventually you can buy his designs at your doorstop! I praise the internet! So even in Graz now I will be able to dress in Gosha Rubchinskiy! And the best is that compared to other designer's on LN-CC, he is actually quite affordable! Yeah, I just love my fate!!!!
