On the 6th of February Ksenia Schnaider fall-winter 16 collection was presented at a creative space "Fedoriv Hub", where we built a pop-up store with not only clothes, but also various objects, such as water, fruits, toothpaste and many others . A photographer from Headshot Agency captured it all on camera.
Just a couple of days before Fall-Winter 16 collection will be presented, we think it is time to remember what Ukrainian and international media wrote about Spring-Summer 16.
Liana Satenstein from Vogue US: ‘a smart transitional combo: slouchy shorts, sliced at the knee, which seamlessly segue into a pair of tailored trousers'.
Serena Castrignano from Vogue Italia: 'Dresses with ultra clean lines are combined with trousers with an unusual silhouette that still remain loyal to the soul of the brand by Ukrainian duo Ksenia Marchenko and Anton Schnaider'.
Vogue Russia: 'Shorts-pants, skirt-shirts, holiday flags decor and digital birch print – a brilliant collection of discreet, but very interesting design clothes with a national focus, which are really likely to become everyday outfit by Ukrainian brand Ksenia Schnaider'.
Caroline Grosso from W Magazine: 'This season they opted for a more minimalist, monochromatic aesthetic. Case in point: this see-through puffer jacket and a loose trouser with a slit at the knee and tapered ankle'.
Natasha Stagg from V Magazine: 'White and grey fabrics nodded to the graphics the designer was in danger of relying too heavily on, leaving only a reminder of them in patterns on pants, shorts, and pants that looked, amazingly, like both pants and shorts'.
Vogue Ukraine: 'Trousers with a slit at the knee and bomber jackets stitched with swans down attracted guests' attention at the fashion show. Some signature Ksenia Shnaider techniques can be found: glitched prints, which became monochrome and resembled birch bark, and shirt-dresses'.
Elle Ukraine: 'Shorts-pants and bomber jacket with swans down can be called absolute hits. Also, skirt made of shirt is an interesting decision.’
L`Officiel Ukraine: ‘Quilted sweatshirt stitched with swans down and white trousers sliced at the knee is the best look by Ksenia Schnaider’.

Russian magazine Afisha Moscow featured Ksenia Schnaider SS 2016 collection
"Pieces by Ksenia Schnaider have traits, which are rarely seen among young brands: they are functional and wearable. Designers Anton and Ksenia Schnaider are well-known supporters of minimalism, laconic cut and clean colours. Every season they skillfully re-think national ornaments. This time they pixeled birch bark, invented weightless silk sweatshirts with swans` fluff, as well as Bermuda trousers. For next season creative duo suggests wearing laconic clothes with low-hill shoes".
