…is the romantic and majestic title to Larusmiani’s latest Fall-Winter 2013/14 collection, and few words could describe this luxurious and magnificent collection better. Inspired by the treasures of the Kremlin, and tailored in jewel toned sumptuous materials such as Italian crafted silk, cashmere and chinchilla, in peacock blue, burgundy, pearl grey and dashes of gold. The feminine and ladylike silhouettes with the focus on a high waist for a more demure look have a touch of retro for an extremely sophisticated edge. Magnificent furs also feature heavily, such as plush silver fox, astrakhan, chinchilla and blackglama, adding even more luxe factor to the collection. The modern day, liberated Anna Karenina’s wardrobe includes a stunning and luxuriant intense blue cashmere, silk and chinchilla cape with a gorgeous burgundy blue frost fox collar and bottom trim that is like wrapping oneself in a warm and passionate embrace; divinely on-trend pantsuits with a vintage allure for day and evening with flowing palazzo legs; the iconic trench coat re-interpreted in Larusmiani’s lavish vein in crocodile and cashmere, silk and chinchilla and an utterly irresistible party dress in teal blue dévoré velvet against a golden background with a built in corset that is a dream! But dreams are distant and intangible, while the Larusmiani collection is delightfully real and marvellously palpable and bursting with a sense of ultra-refined and plush timelessness.
