Collection 'The Awakener' by Irina Krutasova
In 'The Awakener' collection, the designer Irina Krutasova wants to convey the idea that at some point in life, we need to wake up. Otherwise, we risk missing out, drowning in our doubts and regrets about
unfulfilled dreams. The vibrant colors of the dresses show us the emotions we can experience if we
awaken. Darker colors represent the transitional period when we're searching for our path.
In the collection's designs, you'll notice many eyes that symbolize introspection. Each of us holds secrets in our souls, waiting to be uncovered when we open our eyes to the essence within.
To create this collection, the designer used various techniques and materials, introducing a new style in her work: hand-painted designs on leather. Each design is unique and personally crafted by Irina Krutasova herself.
The shimmering wings of the Jewel Beetle resemble the journey of the Sun across the sky, radiating light and warmth, creating the conditions for the rebirth of life in all things. These wings are artfully
incorporated into the embroidery of several dresses, adding a touch of nature's splendor to the collection.
