Ksenia Schnaider and Lapti Collaboration
New Lapti shoe collection was created in collaboration with the brand Ksenia Schnaider. For the shoe brand, collaboration with well-known Ukrainian designers aren’t new — Lapti has joint collection with Anna K.
Six slippons and 7 espadrilles are included in the collection. Models are presented with pixel print, which is the first time the brand Ksenia Schnaider used in the collection of spring/summer 2015.
«The idea to translate Ukrainian folk embroidery in pixels appeared here in 2014, when we suddenly realized that the image of Ukraine abroad is very vague and distorted. They know that there is a country with great traditions, but what happens to it now — it’s not clear, and last but not least thanks to the media, which greatly distort information. To show this strange connection of archaic and modern culture, and reflect all distortion and interference, we have distorted traditional ornaments, using “glitch”», — says Ksenia Schneider.
The first joint Ksenia Schnaider and Lapti collection world saw at Paris Fashion Week, then during the Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days.
