Christmas gifts - from Phil to Valeria

This Christmas, we chatted with the co-designers of GIRLS FROM OMSK about their gift list for each other.


Phil is up first with what's on his gift list for fellow designer Valeria:


Image: Postcrossing.com 
For cat-lover Valeria, who has worked double time this past season and has put together a great new collection, my first gift is a vacation to the Land of Cats to get some time to relax and inspiration for our next Spring - Summer collection!

And of course she can't go visiting the Land of Cats empty-handed, I'd send her there wearing a MEG CHAIKI, to make sure that all the cats jump on her!

Finally, I think Valeria could really use the MISTY WOOL when she comes back to cold Belgium after her vacation!!

GIRLS FROM OMSK Shop Tour: TRENDS BRANDS

Store name: TRENDS BRANDS for FRIENDS

We had no idea about the name, so I just asked my friends on Facebook – I  had hundred comments and then got this idea for the store’s name.  



Who are you? 

Anastasia Sartan (CEO Trends Brands) and Varya Vedeneeva (marketing manager of Trends Brands)

We are a brand new Russian online store with free delivery all over the country and an offline shop corner in Moscow. During the 6 months of our existence we’ve already made great results: one of the most popular bands, Tesla Boy, played at our shop corner’s launch, website and store relaunch, we were nominated as “best new shop” by Time-out Moscow and The-village.ru. As well, we provide new standards of quality and client-service comparable to how it is in Europe. We enjoy making fun descriptions and styling our products creatively, no more boring photos and text. 



What is the store concept? 

The biggest online retailer with a selection of the best brands from all over the world.


Who shops here?  

Young, sophisticated people from 16 up to 35 years old. Influencers, opinion-leaders, fashion or near-fashion orientated, musicians, artists, journalists etc...



Which celebrity would you love to have visit TRENDS BRANDS?  

Guess it’s Ksenia Sobchak. We really like what she’s doing here in Moscow and she has great sense of humor as well. (image from wikipedia)

Why do you love GIRLS FROM OMSK?  

You make extraordinary clothes – that’s the main reason. We like how you mix current and upcoming trends with distinctive Russian culture.

What is your favorite item from the FW2011 GIRLS FROM OMSK collection?  


Oh grr, it’s not an easy choice. Can we pick few? I think they are:


the famous Shishkin print t-shirt (MEG MISHKI)


the Anna Akhmatova sweatshirt (MOTHER AKHMATOVA) and the plaid flannel shirt (MURDER).


And for sure it’s the kitten print (EGG BEGEMOTT). We love cats and kittens! Catvertising!

Can you tell us something more?  

Definitely! The biggest thing we want is to see beautiful girls in dresses and handsome young men well dressed and not only in Moscow or Saint Petersburg. We want to make  all our clients happy and break this stereotype about Russia – we have new generation here and everything is going to be amazing. We don’t believe in the end of the world in 2012 ;)

It's Thanksgiving time!



And we're thankful for the MEG MISHKI!!

This Thanksgiving, the GIRLS are celebrating family... which brought us to the family of bears climbing trees on our unisex jersey tee-shirt MISHKI.


MISHKI is a reinterpretation of Ivan Shishkin’s painting Morning In the Pine Tree Forest from 1889. In our version the bear family has been extended by one rash member… What is he looking for in the tree?

If you find out, let us know!


Here's the original painting that inspired our version. The artist, Shishkin, was appreciated in his time for his fine detail and full and finished impressions of the Russian landscape. Read more about Shishkin here.

Hope you all have a good Thanksgiving!!

GIRLS FROM OMSK Shop Tour: GARDE-ROBE NATIONALE

The GIRLS FROM OMSK Shop Tour is a collaborative project GIRLS FROM OMSK and the shops The closet, Cream, WAKE UP, Mr. Ego, REWIND and garde-robe nationale. We wanted to let you know a little more about the shops that carry the collection.

 

Store name: GARDE-ROBE NATIONALE 

When the store first opened 10 years ago, there wasn’t much going on our street (Nationalestraat). It didn’t have any clothing shops. So when it came to naming the shop we thought that this would be the “garde-robe” on the Nationalestraat. Now there are so many clothing shops around us and this is really a cool area, but in the beginning it wasn’t so.



Who are you?   

Nathalie Lachat (Manager and buyer)



What is the store concept?  

Bringing fashion to the woman on the street.

There is so much going on with the fashion scene in Antwerp, but looking out on the street we didn’t see many women actually wearing stylish clothes. We stock collections that balance affordability with creativity and quality. Our philosophy is less about the brand and more about getting our clients to put their stamp on the clothes. It is better sometimes that you don’t know the brand that you are wearing, but to find your own style.



Who shops here?  

I find a lot of the woman who comes in here is dynamic and successful, in control of her world. But that she often lacks confidence with fashion. So we try to help her find the right style for her personality / body type so that she can look as good on the outside as on the inside.

Which celebrity would you love to see come in GARDE-ROBE NATIONALE?   

I’m sick of celebrities! When a woman comes in the shop she is a woman, not a celebrity. Everyone is treated the same here.



Why do you love GIRLS FROM OMSK?   

It’s a brand that I didn’t have in the shop. They have a street chic attitude and something we were missing, the casual element. There is a great balance on price and quality. I also love that the collections evolve each season, the brand is growing up, but not getting old. It also brings another type of client into the shop.


What is your favorite item from the FW2011 GIRLS FROM OMSK collection?  



I have these great glitter shoes that work super well with the MOTHER AKHMATOVA (here is Nathalie in the top)



I also found the SHUN01 BARRETTE COLORS that I really had a hard time leaving behind. (here’s me and thank you to Nathalie, for her great stylist’s eye on the pic)



Can you tell us something more?   

When we're talking with the women that come in the shop it becomes sometimes psychology through clothes, showing women that some of their ideas about their bodies are incorrect and maybe getting them to try out a different style. Most of all, we are honest. Clothing is part of the first impression that a person makes and so we help translate what a woman wants to communicate. I can easily become a personal stylist for a lot of my clients.

How can we find you?
