In the work on the spring-summer collection, Olesya Kononova and Anastasia Ryabokon, the design duo of the Lake Studio brand, reflected on the aesthetics and traditions of Asia. The designers devoted the previous collection to the Great Silk Road, the place of confluence of eastern and western traditions.

A separate project dedicated to Asia is a logical continuation of our research, the designers add.

Engravings by Chinese artist Zhang Datsian became the starting point in the work on the collection. He was inspired by the beauty of nature, plants and wildlife – the views that Lake Studio designers fully share. The softness of Datsian’s brush stroke, pastel shades and translucency of watercolors have been transferred to the new collection of the brand.

Another source of inspiration was the image of a samurai girl. She is simultaneously feminine, reverent, but at the same time belligerent, she has fencing and hand-to-hand combat and is distinguished by her special courage of spirit. This mood – a combination of tenderness and strength – is clearly read in the new collection of The Royal Lotus. It is also the name of the Chinese tradition to wrap the girls with wealthy families with foot bandages so that they do not grow and remain miniature all their lives. Such a trend, of course, deformed the feet, and the process itself was very painful.

But we wanted to convey the idea of ​​comfortable beauty, of fashion that does not require such sacrifices, ”the designers of Lake Studio explain.

The collection has a lot of both everyday and evening things. Iconic Lake Studio dresses, gowns, combinations and prints are set off by Asian details. For example, a two-sided kimono: it can be worn as a bathrobe or even an evening dress. The collection also has a lot of one size items, which are regulated only by ties.

Lake Studio dresses: delicate and translucent, their delicacy is emphasized by jackets without lapels – in the Japanese manner – and shirt-fronts inspired by samurai armor. The line of accessories is especially rich: in addition to imitations of samurai armor, it included decorative home slippers, square-toed shoes and a whole series of jewelry with malachite, turquoise and river pearls – brooches and crests, as well as hand-made earrings and pendants in the shape of imperial warriors.

Authentic Asian motifs are traced in a series of prints. For example, images of fiery yellow dragons against a background of white clouds were inspired by ancient Chinese imperial vases of the 14th century.

A print depicting samurai warriors of different ranks – the more complex the costume, the higher its status. The collection also contains floral motifs: nature is one of the fundamental elements in the aesthetics of Lake Studio. This time, the designers chose the ashoka flower, common in the tropics of Asia, for drawing.

The collection is dominated by pastel colors, contrasting with bright prints. The exception is the rich scarlet inherent in the Chinese tradition, purple and gold. Such a range is combined with laconic and minimalistic silhouettes: straight, geometric, without draperies and frills. Among the fabrics used are Japanese viscose, cotton, jacquard, viscose with dusting, all kinds of silk.
