Kolchagov Barba's Spring/Summer 2016 collection is inspired by the elegance, gracefulness and the warm colour palette of the blossom, where every piece has been designed to evoke the delicacy and femininity channeled by these fragile flowers.
The cascading waves of pinks invoke the arrival of the cherry blossoms, breathing life into the world for a fleeting yet timeless moment. In this way the designs of this collection resemble the photographs and writings of Japanese picnic goers who gather to witness the blooming of the Ume tree, capturing its splendour for future generations.
The use of delicate embroidery and luxurious fabrics reflect and embrace the blossom’s uniqueness, delicate yet sumptuous, combining classic couture with modern trends.
Symbolically blossoms represent to Kolchagov Barba the fragility of feminine beauty and with their designs and exquisite pinks they connect the modern woman, a strong and rational female with her fragile and unique history, in which beauty is revered and worshipped precisely because of its transience.
