Elena Shatalova is based in Voronech, Russia and is a graduate from the Institution Of Art &Amp; Culture. The designer's collections are produced in her home country and often pay homage to modern works of art.
When examining the designer's latest line, entitled "Fluid", modern art plays a big role in its vivid, visual inspiration. Mixing contrasting color combinations with 3D elements that resemble splattered paint, Elena Shatalova creates wearable art works that embody an eccentrically elegant air.
The pieces range from sculptural coat garments, printed trousers and over-sized jackets that combine prints, sculptural elements and cocooned silhouettes together. The pieces are reflective of the Russian designer's signature aesthetic that successfully makes wearable art elegant rather than purely theatrical.
