Chapurin - The Art of Fashion

Not so long ago I had a pleasure to see real art in fashion. The designer, who helped me to see fashion from the side of the art and to percept fashion like the creation of the absolutely new human character by means of creating the style and new shapes and forms, was Igor Chapurin. He is also the most aristocratic and bourgeois designer from Russia, well-known in Europe.

His career and success began in the beginning of 90s, when he was chosen to be the best young fashion designer at the competition in Paris, organized by Nina Ricci. In 1998 his collection "Chapurin - 99" took the highest prize of the Haute-Couture Association of Russia, the “Golden Mannequin”.

He is one of the few designers, ordained into the mystery of Russian classical theater. He created costumes for the play, performed by Oleg Menshikov, “Woe because of Wit. In 2003, the designer began to create costumes for the premiere of the ballet “Madam Lionelli”, given in Albert Hall in London. He also created theater costumes for the famous Kirill Serebrennikov performance “Demon”, starring Oleg Menshikov
In 2003 Chapurin Couture presented the new large design-project in the field of the interior and furniture design - CHAPURINCASA. In June 2004 together with Swarovski company, Igor Chapurin created costumes for Russian Olympic Champions in gymnastics.

The last collection spring-summer 2007 by Igor Chapurin which finalized this Fashion Week in Moscow was noted for brightness, dynamism and contrasting colors. Quite radical and avant-garde, it was partly inspired by Stanley Cubrick’s ‘Clockwork orange’. The aggressiveness of the mood that it gave was quite understandable, because of the main concept and the style of the film. The usage of clear and harmonious color contrasts gave expressiveness to images: the colors stressed one another without contradicting. Accessories in the shape of large insects added naturalism to the collection. In one of the images the designer combined black shorts with purple sweater and stockings of the same color, completing the image with a short voluminous mantle, and the violet color was blended with yellow, black and different shades of brown. The more conservative items were vitalized by some more interesting details; for instance a black skirt was decorated with a vertical row of shining buttons.

The hall was packed with audience and celebrities like at all CHAPURIN shows. Applause was thundering which proved that the unusual style and radicalism of the defile were not just an epatage, but a careful idea of the artist, realized with great taste.

On December, the 1st, 2006, the world will see the presentation of the new collection CHAPURIN haute couture 2007. The show, which has become a good tradition in Russian fashion world, will take place at +7095 art pavilion in Moscow, 5-5a Nizhniy Susalniy str.
