Muscovites, Nina Tatiana and Donis Pupis, are the creative duo behind fashion label Nina Donis. Not new to the scene having started their fashion label 14 years ago, their hard work has paid off. They are now considered to be at the head of Russia’s most influential designers.
Each garment is homogenous in colour with carefully orchestrated bold singular broad brushstrokes of contrasting colour – almost as if a paint roller has been applied. These are uniforms for the style conscious. Simple in form, the fabric choice and nominal embellishment is what gives them a deliciously breezy effect. They are construction worker, meets farm picnic, meets Japanese origami, meets an austere English sensibility with a rainy day melancholia.
Tatiana and Pupis have been tagged as ‘pioneers of the experimental minimalist design in Russia’. It’s an earnest compliment that is well deserved.
