mercedes benz fashion week russia March 2015

27 March witnessed the opening of the 30th Anniversary Season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. It was the maestro of the Russian fashion, Vyacheslav Zaitsev, who traditionally was the first to present his new Fall-Winter collection 2015-2016 Nocturne. The first block of the show featured female demi season coats that became the signature garments of the Fashion House. Principal core of the collection made the formal suits, slim fit jackets and straight dresses accomplished with massive accessories. There were silk wine-coloured skirts with mixed textures, combination of graphic and floral prints on the evening gowns, plenty of adornment - which still left the collection in harmony with the calm and compete colour palette and the choice of silhouettes. Little black dress with the asymmetric collar and bright insets performed in stained-glass technique was according to designer the major highlight of the collection. As for the male line - classic coats, straight-cut suits and shirts with prints made personally by hand of Vyacheslav Zaitsev took the catwalk.

Matthew O'Brien

Collection: Smart Future

This collection explores the connection between fashion and technology. Borrowing shape and form from architecture along with integrated electronics.

Drawing inspiration from looking at how technology and fashion have become one, and how fashion has taken different routes due to the technology now available. The collection concentrated on how every social space is designed to suit a user's needs. I wanted my garments to adorn the body, while also reacting to the wearer's needs and requirements, for example altering in shape and form to cool the wearer down through moving flaps. Also the use of neon lighting tubes sewn into seams to emphasise and aluminate certain aspects of the garments.

About Matthew O'Brien

Entering fashion at the young age of 15 Matthew O'Brien started his first clothing label. Focusing on menswear he was able to develop his design aesthetic leading him into womenswear where he was able to excel. His passion and determination has landed him many accolades most recently Britain's Top Designer. Matthew has a strong eye for detail and focuses on structure and shape, along with the use of unconventional fabrics. Matthew has a great ability to produce contemporary aesthetics, whilst somehow using historical referencing. Amalgamating both electronics with fashion, Borrowing shape and form from architecture along with integrated electronics. Taking a keen interest in print design his latest collection exhibits sharp monochrome prints with highlights of colour. Against the sharp angular forms created on the body.
