FOR THE HEADING "WARDROBE" we photograph beautifully, distinctively or oddly dressed people in their favorite things and ask them to tell stories related to them. This week our heroine is the chef of the Nude cafe Dasha Khomitskaya.
I remember how I did not like my school uniform, and especially the materials from which it was sewn. Already at a conscious age, I very often climbed into one of my grandmother's closets and dressed up. At fifteen I had purple hair and adolescent maximalism, but closer to seventeen I was faced with the harsh realities of independent living. At that moment, it hit me that the main thing is to work hard and do not care if anyone likes my clothes or not. After a couple of years, I began to earn good money and spent the money left after paying for the apartment on things. It seems to continue to this day. Clothing is one of my main hobbies after work. Every season I study all the shows of my favorite brands. And from time to time I dream of a large dressing room.
I dress for the mood. It happens that you unbearably want to wear everything shiny, but sometimes you just want black. I don't have time to shop, so I mostly shop online: Farfetch, Net-A-Porter. From our stores I love Aizel and SVMoscow. Because of work, I “walk” my favorite outfits two or three times a week. For work I have a lot of professional clothes and different hats, which I change according to my mood. Chefs have their own trends for uniforms, which change from time to time. My close friend and stylist Zhenya Zubov is always closely following my hair. Even if he is not in town, I would never trust anyone else with my hair.
COS pants, Vetements hoodie, Eytys sneakers
I love COS a lot for their quality and durability. These pants are the best illustration. I bought them five years ago in Paris, and they are still in service. My relationship with Vetements has been developing for a long time, but now this sweatshirt is irreplaceable for me - for which thanks to Tatyana, the owner of SVMoscow. These sneakers came to me from London. We have a chip with my close friend Sasha - we sometimes buy the same shoes. This is exactly the case.
COMME des GARÇONS suit, Stella McCartney sneakers
I am very fond of this tracksuit - the first and only one in my wardrobe. I love to fly somewhere in it or go for long walks with the dog.
Sundress Au Jour Le Jour, top W8, COS socks, Zara shoes
I bought this sundress in Kiev: it is made of absolutely amazing fabric, which includes wool. I can wear it on my naked body, which is surprising considering my wild allergies. I wear it very rarely - for dates or parties. He has a special place in my wardrobe. The top is actually a swimsuit top, but it's so comfortable that on my last trip to Berlin, when I went to a Radiohead concert, I didn't take it off for three days. If someone is looking for an indispensable swimsuit, then the W8 is a must-have.
Slip-ons N ° 21, Acne shirt, Monki jeans
I hunted these slip-ons for two months. I bought myself a shirt for my birthday before last, when the fourth floor of Tsvetnoy was alive and interesting. All my jeans are exclusively from Monki. This is a great find for me, because before the appearance of this store in my life, I did not have a single pair of jeans that would fit well.
TK Maxx fur coat, Monki jeans, boots and T-shirt & other stories
In this outfit I imagine myself as Kanye West's girlfriend - my soul is immediately warm from such an absurd thought!
Sleepy Jones shirt, COS skirt, Marsell boots, Raf Simons jacket
Here I would like to note that Raf Simons do things that you don't want to shoot at all. In a pajama shirt, I feel comfortable both at work and outside, and the boots are just very comfortable.
Acne Studios Dress, COS Trenchcoat, Marsell Boots
The dress was found by my friend at a garage sale in Tsvetnoy. It's so controversial, but sometimes I wear it to birthdays and parties.
Vivienne Westwood Coat, Sneakers 18/42
I wear this coat when I'm sad. I feel myself in it as under a blanket, hidden from all external influences.
Uniqlo dress, T by Alexander Wang anorak, Blundstone shoes
Anorak is absolutely irreplaceable, and this one is my favorite. I love sequins and silver. And Blundstone is an absolutely irreplaceable shoe that I put all my friends on.
Kuraga top, COS skirt, Zara shoes
I rarely dress like a girl. I do not like to be pretentious or behave differently, as usual, but in a special way - it seems to me that this is deceiving myself. But sometimes you want to walk very slowly in heels, holding the skirt from the wind.
I am very picky about materials, as I have been allergic since childhood. Therefore, I buy hats only at COS. Proven over the years.
Zanzan glasses, COMME des GARÇONS wallet
I have everything in one copy: bag, wallet, glasses. I lose everything and can easily forget cards or keys if I transfer from one bag to another. I don't like to do this, so everything is clear and to the point. My relationship with the Zanzan brand began after my friendship on Instagram - their pictures perfectly describe my mood and understanding of beauty. Just like these glasses - that's why they are with me almost always. And also because a month ago I lost two other favorite couples at the same time.
