Ksenia Schnaider is an emerging luxury European unisex brand, founded by husband and wife duo Ksenia Marchenko and Anton Schnaider in 2011. The main concept behind the brand is to create minimalist clothes that, in their strong beauty, reflect the contemporary.

Unlike most other brands, the collections of Ksenia Schnaider are inspired by clothing and its features. For instance, the brands Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Camouflage, was inspired by the camouflage print that adorns military wear. However, the duo twisted the print, creating a blue and nude version which aimed to attract attention rather than deter it.

For Autumn/Winter 2013, Ksenia Schnaider presents Bodywarmer, “a collection inspired by the classic bodywarmer, a quilted garment which was incredibly popular in the Soviet Union due to its affordability, utility and versatility”. “Ksenia has taken inspiration from the iconic garment and carried it through the entire collection, quilting dresses, skirts, jackets, coats and the backs of t-shirts, mixing her fanned panelling technique with a unique approach to quilting”. However, despite the garments original affordability, Ksenia has, as with all of her work; given the concept a luxurious twist through her dominant use of leather and silk.

A leather bodywarmer sits at the heart of the collection with numerous beautifully crafted, handmade garments surrounding it. Men wear bulky quilted jackets while women embrace both elegance and edge by wearing structured pleated dresses, those of which can be styled for both an admirable daytime casual or evening outfit, looking effortless while doing so. Many classics such as Ksenia Schnaider’s signature white shirt and wool trousers are carried through the collection, ensuring the brands devotion to continuous quality, season through season.

With what is possibly their best collection yet, presenting an ideal mix of both elegance and edge, how on earth will Ksenia and Anton top it next season?

You can view the full collection through NowFashion and purchase selected pieces from Ksenia Schnaider’s current collection through Caption London Boutique.
