Paris Designer brings back Russian Imperial Heritage

IRFE

Paris in the 1920s was a heady and exciting place for art, culture, music, fashion and the stuff of legends in its heyday. Hemingway, Chanel, Ballet Russe, or the Surrealists brought to the climate in Paris a sense of urgency, artistic passion and elegance.  The House of IRFE, begun by two Russian members of the artistocracy arrived with their dreams of luxury and style that were perfect for the climate. When the house finally went out of business, it rested like a polished diamond, almost forgotten, gathering dust for a number of years until the family found the perfect partner, and Creative Director, Olga Sorokina. Her fresh and young vision has begun the return of the house, already a favorite with the European set, and her upcoming show in September will be eagerly anticpated.  Her work with knits, leathers, silks and chiffons is a syngery of classics and the sporty separates that jet set girls need today. The house is currently in the throes of putting this new collection together, so when the show is revealed, you'll be the first to know, as we'll be in the front row!  I have heard that the look for the next collection might be a bit edgier, so I am very excited to see it when it opens on its first runway show in September. We'll be in one of the first rows, getting our first look at the clothes, so its very exciting! 

Here are a few photos of the Creative Director, also a perfect model for the brand herself, as she's her own best customer.
