Summertime and the livin’ is easy
“Summertime and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Your daddy’s rich and your ma is good lookin’
So hush, little baby, baby, don’t you cry “- Ella Fitzgerald
Fabulous florals and sheer shapes, hot days and breezy nights. It’s time to pull out your summer closet.
For the S/S 14 season & Other Stories features a new Co-lab collection. This time with internationally acclaimed fashion designer and street style icon Vika Gazinskaya. Together with &Other Stories the Russian designer has created a capsule collection of breezy summer dresses, blouses and accessories featuring her own iconic hand-drawn stroke line crayon and polka dot prints.
“With this collection I really wanted to give people the opportunity to get my prints at an affordable price. The stroke line crayon print is my signature, the polka dots are colourful classics, and the dandelions are graphic with a naive essence, giving a mix of prints that is timeless, playful and fashionable”, says Vika Gazinskaya
Vika Gazinskaya, Russian born fashion designer, presented her first namesake collection for F/W 2007, her design is recognisable from its whimsical patterns and use of luxurious materials. At the beginning of her career she got lensed by Schott Schulman on the streets of Paris, New York and Milan and had no idea of what a blogger was. Being a street style icon helped her significantly to raise the labels profile and today she is a well recognised name in the business.
The Vika Gazinskaya’s Co-lab collection will be available at all European & Other Stories and on stories.com on May 15th.
A launch of the collection was held at Colette in Paris on May 5th.
