Ksenia Schnaider’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection, ‘Hermit’, is inspired predominately by religion and is a combination of both simplicity and elegance. Ksenia and Anton present us with an assortment of versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched in order to create something spectacular.

The palette for the collection is dominated by black and white, with the odd hint of red, among a handful of additional, subtle colours. Ksenia and Anton have used a wide range of materials such as cotton, lace, neoprene and jersey, which emphasises an evident contrast between the past and present. Both Ksenia and Anton have a passion for contemporary design, yet have managed to add a subtle hint of nostalgia which, for some unknown reason, works impeccably.
