Unfortunately, my once rich wardrobe today, in many respects, consists of basic things. The shooting, on the one hand, helped to revise my clothes, and on the other, to see myself as I am now. I have always had a huge number of dresses, shoes, accessories, outerwear - I have always been a fashionista. And although I am not guided by any special logic, I cannot say that objects appear spontaneously with me. The shooting became an occasion to rummage through things, many of which are packed into boxes: there is simply not enough space in the apartment. I dream of having a dressing room in which I will hang clothes and arrange a collection of shoes - I will put everything in order and get rid of unnecessary things.

I still dress up for the exit, but recently I caught myself thinking that basic clothes have supplanted more interesting ones. I have a lot of vintage, for example, my mother's black leather coat - I found it when I was sorting out family things in Yekaterinburg. My family emigrated in all directions, and I was entrusted with family belongings. The raincoat hung on a hanger, came to my senses, and it turned out that this is a unique thing that fits almost everything. I carefully collected the collection of outerwear. There are also new pieces in it - like the Miu Miu leather trench coat or the Fendi thin vintage trench coat.

With the advent of children in my life, the wardrobe has become more versatile. Before, I almost never took off my heels, but now I switched to comfortable shoes, mostly sneakers. I cannot say that I am glad of this state of affairs - this is a forced necessity. The clothes below are not my basic wardrobe, they are iconic things that characterize me, the ones that I love. Each has a story behind it. I keep them for years, keep them, and I believe that they will be inherited by my daughter - and she will be very lucky.

Peremotka vintage jumpsuit, Julia Dima decoration

Silk jumpsuit is at from Olya Samodumova, a person with the best taste. In theory, it should be worn with a belt, but even without it, it looks cool. It seems to me that it suits me very well.

The adornment is an item from the collection of the already, unfortunately, defunct Julia Dima brand. It was created by my close friend Julia Markelova, who also hails from Yekaterinburg. Julia studied and worked for a long time in Paris, and then returned to her homeland and opened an incredibly fashionable store. Everything that is happening in Russian fashion today is an echo of Yulia's work. I keep this decoration as the apple of my eye.

Miu Miu Cloak, Vintage Shoes

I always try to buy only "my" things. So this cloak - immediately sat down as it should. A bold thing with a very light color.

The iconic 60s pumps with scary worn noses are simply timeless. I guess I'll never throw them away. I bought it on Portobello back in 2001 - a carefree time of major travels and adventures. Then my beloved friend Maxim Zamyatin opened Portobello to me, together we grabbed a lot of different things.

Diptyque L'Ombre dans l'Eau perfume, Prada clips, eau de parfum

I love non-classical perfumes and selective perfumery. I am a long-time supporter of Diptyque, I have tons of other bottles, but this one with black currant is the base. A stunning perfume that leaves an unforgettable trail, I love the packaging design and the way it sounds on me.

My ears are not pierced, so I buy clips. True, I have few of them, since it is difficult to wear such jewelry. At the same time, earrings are incredible for me, so I constantly think about piercing the earlobes, but I just can't make up my mind. A pair of Prada was presented by her husband, they have a beautiful graphic form.

Eau de Parfum is the result of personal testing of the aura-soma. It is composed on the basis of a color and scent that suits you personally.This is a real mystery, each shade in the palette has its own meaning. I will not tell you that I have a secret. But it so happened that the color coincided with the one that I already love - emerald green. I use it every day, it still won't end.

Vintage denim jacket, Ushatava jeans, Denis Simachev sandals

I bought an oversized jacket with embroidery in one of the vintage styles in Los Angeles. She is already seven years old. Jeans from the Ural brand Ushatava. I really love the creators and I think that they are great fellows - they are developing by leaps and bounds.

Sandals of the defunct brand Denis Simachev are also iconic for me. This is the company that started my life in Moscow, my first place of work. I am infinitely grateful to Denis and Olya - it was an unforgettable experience.

Moonswoon rings, Markin Jewelery earrings, Avgvst bracelet, Anna Maslovskaya pendant

Moonswoon is a Ural brand that expertly works with local stones. These rings are unique, there are no other such rings. In general, the Ural gems are amazing in their texture, they seem to reflect the powerful course of events. I rarely wear them.

Volodya Markin's jewelry is amazing, I once helped Volodya launch a brand. I really like this collection, it is very delicate. I keep the earrings in a separate box. My sister and I have the same Avgvst bracelets, but I don't take off Anna Maslovskaya's pendant even for a second - it's my talisman.

Fendi vintage trench coat, boots -t

I realized that I do not buy new leather items at all - only well-preserved models with history. I bought this raincoat in New York - it was very expensive, but I managed to bargain. I didn't even have to tidy it up. The only negative is that it cannot be used in the rain.

The sister brought the boots as a present. Wearing them is a whole adventure. They look funny, but they go well with this image.

Fendi vintage trench coat, vintage visor

Hats suit me very much, but for some reason I rarely wear them. This visor is an exception. Firstly, it glares coolly in the rays of the sun, and secondly, the truth protects from it, thirdly, it is a beautiful thing, and fourthly, I think I am beautiful in it.

Ralph Lauren Vintage Jacket, Vionnet Sundress, slippers from Venice

I bought a sundress at discounts thanks to a wonderful friend Gala, who lives in Milan. I'm going to wear it all summer. The jacket passed to me from the shoulder of Yulia Vydolob, for which many thanks to her. The absolutely incredible beaded slippers from Venice are handcrafted.

Vintage necklace

I bought it either at a market in New York, or from a close friend of Olya Samodumova, who sells incredibly beautiful vintage items in the Peremotka project.

Vintage cape

When I was in California, we went to a vintage shop almost every day, and I fell in love with the owner. At some point, she opened the bins for us, where I found this perfectly preserved cape with a hood. I am looking forward to a special event to wear it - I think, finally, I will take it to the Venice Biennale.

Calvin Klein vintage trench coat, Ushatava trousers, Maison Margiela shoes

The raincoat is my favorite find among the many things at Peremotka. I bought it last spring.

Shabby shoes with an unusual graphic heel are also almost vintage shoes. I bought it eleven years ago from Leform.

Jacket Pedro del Hierro, Vilshenko dress

Thanks a lot to Sasha Podporenova for getting to know the Vilshenko brand - I have a lot of things from this brand. They have very pretty, feminine dresses.

A jacket with a purple lining is also at from my sister. She brought him long ago from Paris, where she then lived.

Vintage Peremotka dress, Miu Miu boots

Printed dress originally from Cameroon. It is also from the first collection of the Peremotka project, which Olya Samodumova launched in 2012. Then I bought four pieces at once, and they all firmly settled in my wardrobe. The lacquered Miu Miu boots are the main hit of my spring collection.

Bracelets from Greece, Prada clips, bracelet and ring - Maison Margiela

A couple of years ago, my friends and I went by boat on the Greek islands. At one of them, my husband and I found an antique jewelry store, where an elderly woman of incredible beauty was selling her jewelry. The first time I left there without bracelets, thinking that if the shop is open on the way back, I will definitely pick them up.These are a kind of talismans, I love them very much and take care of them, I rarely wear them - I'm afraid that they will break and the pearls will fall out.

Bracelet and ring Maison Margiela bought in Yekaterinburg, in one of the luxury shopping centers at a phenomenal sale. I have worn it for three years and am happy immensely.

Mom's raincoat, Uniqlo sweatpants, Miu Miu shoes

This cloak is very important to me - I always feel good in it. Mom is now far away, lives in Germany, and such parts of her wardrobe remind of her, as if she is always there.

These Uniqlo trousers have been with me for three years now and, it seems, will live for as long. Absolutely indestructible. Shoes inlaid with stones are a kind of tribute to the past and my love for heels.

Vintage clip, Pêche Péché pendant, ring XX ring

I bought the clips at a flea market in Germany. It's a shame that one of them was lost on the way to the theater, being late for the performance. Now I wear it like that. The pendant by Lena Manakai - it says “muse”, I like it very much. Our Xxring rings are the same as our best friend, who now lives far away, in St. Petersburg. She has a ruby, and I have an emerald.
