On my Tumblr I have a very evocative image from Russian designer Lesia Paramonova of sweet florals overlayed with sheer tulle. Florals and sheer - two of my favourite things. This accutely feminine aesthetic abound with flora and light-as-air tulle is key to the work of this up-coming designer. Her latest collection is less heavy on the tulle, but still in keeping with the romantic, almost magical, visual language she seems so deft at creating.I even love the charm of her slightly broken English explaination of her latest collection, Les, featured mostly in the collage below; "LES The uniform became the main inspiration. These are the models of a very simple silhouettes with specific surrealistic prints. The main theme is still the wood, already not so real, but surreal, fairy-like, full of fantastic animals and unusual plants: instead of wings ducks could have leaves, and there suddenly could be mouse growing on blackberry bushes. For this collection I created the prints by transforming my illustrations that’s why there is an impression that the prints have been drawn on a fabric with a simple pencil. While creating this collection, I imagined the teenage girl from the Soviet past, with bows, stockings and in a traditional school uniform. It is, in some way, nostalgia on an image of the Soviet school student, but changed and passed through a prism of modern perception."
