Izmaylova's first collection, entitled 'the edge of darkness', launched as a capsule collection for AW11, and their recent offering is just as mesmersing. Design duo Nathanael Gam and Antonina Izmaylova(pictured below), filtered the catwalk with luxurious and flowing silk, hand embellished with Swarovski crystals and other details. Focusing on a faultless silhouette, sharp hip panelling and structured corsetry ruled the day, embracing the natural curves of the female form. Inspired by the warmth, colour and romaticism of Hawaii, Gam stated 'the natural landscape of the island and the striking colour sprectrum that was surrounding us, felt like an invigorating and refreshing release'. The Izmaylova express is firmly in town and this popular design duo are certainly getting their young label noticed in all the right places.
