ICONS – RUSSIAN RULE

AZZI & OSTA

RUSSIAN RULE

Lebanese couturiers Azzi & Osta have expanded on their love of the Russian Empire for their FW haute couture collection, after looking to Czar Nikolai II for inspiration. The Last of the Romanov Dynasty to rule and the last Czar of ‘All the Russias”, the leader was known for his love of art, travel and culture and so the design duo have looked to the rich history of the late Russian Romantic Era. Treating each piece like a work of art, George Azzi & Assaad Osta have focused on a palette of fresh whites, icy blues, mints, silvers and golds reminiscent of the abundance of extravagant palaces from that era. Rich silk, satin, tulle and elaborate embroideries also bring each story to life that speaks in contoured silhouettes and conceptual volumes bringing a contemporary feel to the designers tale.
