'Reworked Sneakers' is the continuation of the Reworked Sportswear collection, an idea which was created by Anton Schnaider.
Anton created a separate line of Reworked Sportswear and it became a part of an Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. After that, Anton decided to continue experimenting and made a sneakers collaboration with the Littman brand. Each pair is made by hand and every single piece is unique and exists as a single copy.
Anton and Ksenia plan to develop a line of Reworked Sneakers and Reworked Sportswear separately from the main collections, adding more interesting designs and implementing new bold ideas.

Ksenia Schnaider, one of the country’s most successful designers, is a stellar example of how to appeal to an audience beyond Ukraine’s borders. The key lies in her use of denim. A few years ago she created Demi Denims, a pants-meets-shorts sort of jean with a slit at the knee and a tapered leg. The clever style took off and is now sold at Stylebop and Moda Operandi, and Schnaider has been reworking the look successfully for several seasons.

Chances are, you’ve seen Ksenia Schnaider’s cult "demi-denims" making the street style rounds during fashion week. The emerging Ukrainian label has become a go-to for their signature frayed, layered and reworked jeans. The brainchild of husband wife duo Ksenia and Anton Schnaider, the brand has a novel vision, inspired by the utility and craftsmanship of clothing, sourcing one-of-a-kind vintage garments to upcycle into completely new designs. Their collections mix patchworking, silhouettes and textural details, offering a fresh take on sartorial deconstruction. Go behind the scenes of their Kiev studio, and watch the inventive designers at play.
