Magazine about men’s fashion The RAKE said about bespoke or modern interpretation of the concept of “individual tailoring”. Who in Russia sews clothes premium?

What is bespoke

It is still unusual to the Russian ear the word bespoke is closest in meaning to the concept of “custom-tailored” when the master sews the product based on personal standards of each client. In the eighties of the indposhiv was extremely popular. People wanted to dress, and domestic light industry could not offer anything worthwhile.

Studio indposhiv was really a lot. For every 6,500 people had one Atelier (excluding private tailors, who worked illegally at home).

The position of the mirror has changed in the ‘ 90s, when they finally dropped the “iron curtain”. With the collapse of the Soviet Union into the country a flood of consumer goods from abroad and the relevance of the Studio completely. The second wave of the revival of indposhiva started closer to two thousand. It became clear that the standards of clothing, especially mens, differing from those of the average European, and the Studio gradually began to regain lost positions.

Of course, the greatest development of the Atelier received in Metropolitan areas. About twenty years ago a small company started to invite artists from Italy, France, the UK and to learn from them. Then came the concept of bespoke, made-to-measure, local craftsmen have begun to take the measurements and make patterns, and customers stopped to be afraid of unusually high prices.

The situation finally changed in just 3-4 years ago, when the economic crisis, sanctions and the policy of import substitution gave rise to the development of local production. Now suit is made in Moscow and not inferior in quality Italian, is cheaper by 30%.

Who are they, premium Russian studios?

“Workshop of classical suit”

One of the most striking, iconic representatives of the new generation of domestic Atelier “Workshop of classical suit” or Mastersuit. Boutique-Atelier in its modern form — with a team of over a hundred people — has evolved from a small family business, founded by enthusiast by Elena Velichkina. Today the company, which is considered one of the top five in the world in its segment, run by the sons of Elena Antonio and Ramon Palacios-Fernandez.

“Workshop” sews like bespoke and made-to-measure. In the first case, 100% of products produced in Russia, here are measurements and made patterns. The second process of assembling the suit trust the masters in Italy. Bespoke — more expensive method is needed when the client is too non-standard shape and tailoring require constant fitting and a more thorough approach.

The brothers Palacios fernández dream to move to Russia and direction made-to-measure. Then they will be able to realize his ambitious goal when 100% of products will show off the tag “Made in Russia”.

“We create new images and models of clothes, — says Antonio. — I must say, our customers have changed, they have become much more relaxed than it was 10-15 years ago, choose more vivid colors. I can say this: when we started, we just sewed the costume. Now we go beyond the standard set of fabrics, buttons, directories, we create the image that is selected for ready harmonious way.”

You Can Unlock Exclusive Sneakers By Playing NBA 2K20, Thanks To Nike

To paraphrase Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker in the 2010 film The Social Network, unlocking new skins and players in a video game is not cool. You know what’s cool? Unlocking real sneakers in a video game. Nothing like having your hard in-game work pay off with a dope out-game prize. Pretty soon you’ll be able to do just that, thanks to a unique first-of-its-kind partnership between EA 2K and Nike.

The sneaker titan’s signature app SNKRS is partnering with NBA 2K20 in a cool new initiative that will allow for players to unlock exclusive (real, not digital) sneakers through gameplay in the MyPLAYER Nation mode. The initiative seeks to function through community as it capitalizes on the intersect between sneaker culture, gaming culture, and basketball fans.

The gameplay that allows for players to unlock these sneaker drops will function in a community setting. 2K20 players can participate by selecting their favorite team and playing through the MyPLAYER Nation mode. The schedule in MyPLAYER Nation will mimic that of the regular NBA season, putting fans up against other members of the community the nights that their selected teams hit the court in real life. When specific milestones are hit, players will unlock the ability to purchase these special Gamer Edition (GE) sneakers on the Nike SNKRS app.

In order to participate, players will need to link their Nike and 2K accounts as well as download the SNKRS app. When a GE is unlocked, players are also able to use the digital version in their game. Throughout the 2019-20 NBA season, 10 GEs will be made available through the game. Nine of these will be unlocked through players achieving certain in-game milestones, while the final shoe will be unlocked through a surprise SNKRS cam execution.

The first shoe in the lineup has already been revealed, that being the Nike LeBron 17 Flood Purple colorway. It’s a plush sneaker in all-over Lakers Purple. The 2K logo and the game’s tagline, “WELCOME TO THE NEXT,” adorns the sneaker as well. In order to unlock the shoe, players need to get their MyPLAYER avatar to a 98 skill level – one above LeBron’s in-game rating of 97. After that, win your next match-up and the shoe is unlocked.

All things considered, this is a partnership long overdue. The intersect between the sneaker and gaming community runs deep (streaming star Ninja just launched a signature deal with adidas, while Nike began sponsoring Overwatch League teams in 2018). Throw in basketball, perhaps the single most integral facet of the sneaker community, and you’ve got a perfect collaboration. We can’t wait to see the other dope signature 2K sneakers that will be made available through the game over the next several months.

MyPLAYER Nation mode unlocks on Oct. 22, coinciding with the opening night of the NBA season. The LeBron 17 Flood Purple is available beginning Oct. 29 and will only be available in the U.S., as will all other GEs (though international players will be able to pick up the digital versions). To stay up to date with any and all releases, download the SNKRS app.

She is not afraid of heat and humidity and it is almost impossible to break. The product made of Stingray leather will last about 30 years.

What is a fur set? How many skins are in it and what they can create? The experts of Black Sable talk about the possible options, taking into account fashion trends.

Fur set is a certain number of skins with which to sew the model of clothing, which perfectly fit a specific person. But before choosing the best style to supply the goods, you should understand how many skins will be required for tailoring of fur coats, of which you dream. The experts of Black Sable know about sable fur everything — and of course, I can recommend the most current models of fur products from different quantities of skins.


Fur a set of 25 skins: products

The number of sable skins have on a short coat, either on a model of outerwear, where fur is combined with the cloth (by the way, what is the height of fashion!).

First, let’s talk about coats. Classic, timeless style — just below the waist with a belt. But there are ultra-short clothing above the belt line — they tend to be designed for the combination with long dresses or with jeans with a high rise. These include a coat avtoledi — fashion invention of the last few seasons, has fully proved its utility and huge popularity. In fact, it’s a short coat, and in fact — outerwear with a comfortable fit for those ladies that spend a lot of time driving in the winter.

There is another practical and attractive products from a small number of sable skins. The idea of the designers was brilliantly simple: to create a garment, the rear part of which (i.e. “back”) would be made entirely of fabric, and the front — fur. The sleeves of this coat are also usually made from thick fabrics, optional decorating with fur only on the bottom. This type of coats is not only economical, but also probably the most pragmatic option fur without sacrificing style, on the contrary — luxury sable it emphasises the contrast with the dense tissue.

Fur vest — not leaving the fashion ratings for your fur. The actual length (which is enough for 25 skins) — thigh or to the knee. And the most appropriate style of vest is straight, because its beauty is in the exquisite simplicity of the black sable fur! By the way, is the most fashionable sable is a solid mech with no gray.

In addition, a minimum of fur set , you can create sophisticated elements for coat: oversized collar, cuff, finish the zipper. Not to mention the small accessories for the winter.


Models of coats from 40 skins

The priority here is fur coats and fur vests of medium length.

Length fur coats to the knee easy for women leading an active lifestyle — in this outerwear is comfortable to walk and drive a car, it can be worn as a dress, and pants, and even jeans.

The most stylish and latest models fur mid knee straight or tapered: these options allow the most advantageous cut to showcase the beauty of the texture of the fur surface and the attractiveness of the figure of the owner. The sleeves of these coats do as fur and fabric or dense knit.


The coat of the 60 sable skins: the ultimate in luxury!

About fur coats full length never say that they went out of fashion, so it is a priori advantageous option for the owner of the product.

Long coats are sewn MIDI (mid-calf) or Maxi to the ankle. Among them there are direct and slim models — owners of long coats straight cut can wear them with a belt. In addition, a large fur set is enough for a long coat silhouette “trapeze” — with extension from the chest to the bottom: this style emphasizes the loftiness of figures, and a wide lower part of the coat thus forms a beautiful soft folds.

However, the company Black Sable says: whatever the length of your fur being sewn from natural sable, it is in any case will look luxurious, elegant and attractive.
