The weather I’ve been experiencing lately has been terribly cold- I’ve lived in Canada all my life so I am used to winter, but the weather of late has really been a Siberian sort of cold. It’s bracing, to say the least! So today I decided to share an outfit inspired by the Siberian winter; combining practicality with a distinctive Russian style.Vladivostok

Russia is actually a hotbed for fashion- so this look includes lots of designer pieces that agree with the overall aesthetic. A navy blue Alexander McQueen coat in a very feminine style pairs nicely with the striped top, which is a nod to the naval heritage of the city of Vladivostok in Russia’s Far East. Richly detailed accessories in traditional Russian red and white allude to the tradition of decorative art in Slavic countries and particularly the Eastern Orthodox Church, while also following the latest trends. The graphic gold jewellery mirrors the beauty and savagery of a winter landscape, and a black fur hat and boots enable the wearer to survive in that very landscape!
