YEKATERINA IVANKOVA …After a long trip ,after a day of work you always return home

…After visiting a beautiful place you always try to come back to visit it again … For the collection “Ritorno” i was inspired by my return after a long trip to the place where i was born in Kazakhstan in the late 90s. Vintage denim jacket, tranches used a lot in that period change their shape. The whole collection is made with original vintage garments reworked by changing their shape and size. A contamination between them means that all items become unique pieces, taking the typical Central Asian flavor and imprint. Upcycling, Reuse, Remode
