Bold colors with heavy makeup sure conveyed the out-of-the-ordinary message. To sum up, the collection was trendy and elementary elegant.
By the designer obsessed with experimenting, Kostya Skorokhodov; SHOCKING AFTERTASTE is one eccentric brand known for its quirky apparel in the industry. This brand on June 22th set the vibe of the runway like it’s 1970 again. He presented 50 handmade men’s and women’s pieces, with the street-style & classic punk-style factors common in all. There were cargo pants, low waist jeans, crop tops, oversize jackets and so much more in many color blends from blue, punk-pink, and even beige. Our favourite from the collection has to be the tie & dye denim jackets that seem to be referring to cowboys and grunge punk vibes!
The brand describes itself with Femininity, individuality, and exquisite luxury, and after having witnessed its collection at the Moscow Fashion Week, it’s safe to say that the brand’s unique designs and bright details are timeless.
