Dinky Talks: Fashion label Lana Siberie
I met lulia Filipovscaia end of last year and have loved how simply beautiful her work is. A Fine Arts graduate from Central St. Martins College a masters in Image and Communication from Goldsmiths University of London, lulia has an impressive resume. This translates very simply and clearly into her Fashion Brand LANA SIBERIE.
Founded in 2010 ,and inspired by her mother’s skilful knitting, “LANA SIBERIE started with a crochet influence collection and has continued to make custom-made orders ranging from knitted wedding dresses to jumpers for clients such as supermodel Natalia Vodianova and her charity, The Naked Heart. “
Having established a production in Spain with a family-owned knitwear manufacturer (which also works with Balenciaga, Marni and J. W. Anderson), LANA SIBERIE’s cutting edge knitwear marries organic texture patterns with contemporary and easy styles with high quality yarn compositions using materials like Silk, Cashmere and Alpaca.
“Having been brought up in the diamond-mining town of Mirniy in Siberia, minerals have always held a symbolic potency in my life..”says lulia, “Thus both the collections, “FOUNDATION” and “GROWTH” represent the woven patterns replicating marble textures, very alchemy.”
lulia is an artist.
I have established that. She is a photographer, a painter, an explorer. She likes tactile and she loves materials! Most of all she loves Fashion and the process of design. Her work is a marriage of her skill, interest and her life’s visual experiences. Her work is LANA SIBERIE.
You can see some of the photos from her SS14 and AW14 lookbook here.
