Gosha Rubchinskiy FW16 Collection

Gosha Rubchinskiy showed his Fall/Winter 2016 collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. The show was a shift from his olympic themed spring/summer showing. This time around the Russian designer pivoted away from primary colors and the more ostentatious branding towards a more industrial, grungy aesthetic that brings to mind the type of communist era Soviet army surplus. Shirts are tucked in with army belts and layered underneath heavy leathers and shearling coats. Sweatshirts and pants are oversized with sleeves and pantlegs draping like extra appendages. The sneakers are Reebok, and hint at a collaborative model dropping soon. While not a predictable collection, it does it’s job of adding to Gosha’s universe and all it entails. Look for the items to drop online this summer at stockists like End Clothing, Tres Bien and SSENSE.
