Gorilli is proud to announce that starting Autumn / Winter 2016 we’ve added Gosha Rubchinskiy to our brandlist.
Growing up in post-Soviet Russia, Gosha Rubchinskiy is a young Moscow-based designer heavily inspired by skateboarding and the youth culture of his home country. Beginning his own label in 2008, he is a multi talented artist and designer. Having also published a book called ‘Youth Hostel’ and having done multiple photoshoots / exhibitions for the likes of Supreme and more, Gosha Rubchinskiy represents a new generation of streetwear and fashion. His own self titled label, which is supported by COMME des GARÇONS, is colourful, bold, but most importantly; ready to wear.
The Russian designer recently premiered a lookbook and a short film capturing the backstage work that went into his Autumn / Winter 2016 collection, dubbed ‘Save and Survive’. The lookbook features many skate- and street-inspired pieces, including double-sleeved, oversized knitwear; camouflage beanies; and branded suspenders. The lookbook also includes images upcoming footwear collaborations.
The short documentary meanwhile features footage of Rubchinskiy overseeing the rehearsal process, as an armanda of street-cast models walk the catwalk. The models, including teen photographer Tom Emmerson, are all clad in some of the hottest skate-inspired streetwear of the moment, be it Supreme or others, before donning Rubchinskiy’s irreverent interpretations of youth cultural staples.
The first part of the Autumn / Winter 2016 collection is set to release in July.
