Launched in 2010 by husband & wife duo Ksenia Marchenko and Anton Schnaider, Ksenia Schnaider is a Ukrainian unisex brand at the forefront of Ukraine's developing high-fashion industry.
Recently showing at Pitti Immagine in Italy, and having previously exhibited in London Fashion Scout and Art Georgia Paris, and shown collections in Kiev, Berlin, St.Petersburg, Tbilisi and even Chengdu (China).
For Spring/Summer 2014, Ksenia and Anton develop their popular camouflage print from Spring/Summer 2013, creating a simpler, monochrome print that any girl would be lucky to be draped in. Ksenia and Anton are inspired by clothes and their features, as opposed to stories, and the Spring/Summer 2014 collection therefore explores the idea of protective wear, including all kinds of work wear, from factory boiler suits to army wear, which shows evident development from its previous collection, which simply explored army wear and the development of the camouflage print as a protective print to something that made the wearer stand out. Better yet, as always, quality doesn't go a miss as Ksenia and Anton have ensured that only the best fabrics have been used, from elegant silks to crisp 100% cottons.
Having previously had its designs worn by Lady Gaga and featured in numerous publications, including Grazia France, Interview Germany and Vogue Ukraine, there's no doubt that Ksenia Schnaider is a brand on the rise, and in a very rapid way.
