KORSUN designers set their minds to clay and canvas

Paris, FRANCE: A new name in high fashion, Katrine Korsun, is a spirited, energetic, and creative mind from Marbella by-way-of-Moscow. Vision, commitment, and purpose are attributes present in her radiant designs and dynamic personality.

From the day the concept of KORSUN was conceived, Katrine has focused on creating an international brand that emphasizes high-quality design from a confidently personalized, yet global point of view. The KORSUN collection combines kaleidoscopic colour with European elegance and casual luxury with a seductive cut, first-class fabrics and bold details that meet the demands of every woman.

KORSUN is a brand that experiments and provokes at the same time. For the Autumn-Winter 2016/17 collection the brand designers imagined they were abstract artists working with clay or on canvas, and then transferred their ideas to fabric, shades and silhouettes.

“We tried to go beyond the classic fashion clichés and combine incongruous using non-standard solutions,” Korsun’ creative director Sergei Surkov attests. “Tropical forests of the former Spanish colonies became our main inspiration. The delicate jacquard weaving reminds us of the eternal secrets hidden in the jungle. There is something innate behind these patterns, a reflection of a lively mind”. Items were cut out and tailored with meticulousness that is inherently haute couture. Only natural materials were used: the finest wool, cashmere and softest silk. Accentuated in each look was the texture of the fabric and depth hidden in rich shades of blue, green and orange. Jacquard parkas and light overcoats were key pieces of the collection and all outerwear was designed to be loose fitting so as to not hinder movement. A two-sided kimono decorated with patterned embroidery was designed to be worn with bright coloured long trousers.

Also in the collection were long skirts, made of cascading silk; cropped tops, embroidered with large beads; bell-bottomed high-waist pants; and delicate silk dresses all designed for strong, vibrant and seductive women who are not shy to take on the world. In the Autumn-Winter 2016/17 Collection this was reflected in deliberately simple forms and A-shaped silhouettes strengthened with bright details and embroideries in abundance.
