Background on Elena Vasileva: As a child in Russia, Elena Vasileva learned to knit. A degree from FIDM and many years later, she proffers a line of knitwear made exclusively with yarn.

Key Takeaways: This was by far the most creative collection we saw in the Fresh Faces show. Knitting’s obviously not just for grannies anymore!

Color Palette: Space-dyed fabrics and burnt orange, pewter, lavender, burgundy, cream and taupe.

Silhouettes: Exaggerated puffy sleeves, super-short skirts, and, for once, a new take on enhancing the bosom: Rather than doing the traditional low-cut top, Vasileva decided to make full use of undercleavage.

Accessories Report: Medusa hair and superlong extensions; knitted leg warmers; separate neck adornments

What’s Wearable: Shrugs.


Is this the vision of a space-age cowgirl?
