Vassilisa, a luxury fashion label named after classic Russian fairytale heroine, “Vassilisa the Beautiful,” is inspired by myth, history, art and nobility. Designed by Nadja Solovieva, a graduate of Central St. Martins in London, Vassilisa plays on heritage and folklore in an inspiring and stunning women’s ready-to-wear collection.
Vassilisa Spring/Summer 2009 is made from romantic silk and chiffon prints hinting seventeenth century silhouettes. The collection includes dresses, separates, caftans and scarves. Prints are custom made and include delicate chains, romantic floral and ancient lettering in hues of soft blues, oranges, black and white, green and rose.
