who: owner of Vintage Voyage shop in Moscow.
what’s on your mind: I’m thinking about my long awaited trip to Biarritz, I imagine how I will find some amazing vintage treasures in the home town of Cristobal Balenciaga! Also, we’re in the process of shooting out new street style story for Vintage Voyage so I’m putting together all those looks and beautiful girls in my head! Very excited about that.
what’s the best thing about having your own vintage shop: haha, I always have something gorgeous to wear! Joking! I really love going on trips somewhere special like Paris or Tokyo, and find real treasures and then share it with my clients. I love when those beautiful actresses and it-girls wear vintage Chanel jackets with converse shoes! By the way, I don’t have any Chanel jackets in my wardrobe, they just don’t suit me well. But my recent love is kimonos! I’m wearing it with gladiator sandals or new balance boots and jeans!

what’s on your mind: love what I do and can work 24/7 being absolutely happy about it. I’m one of those people who constantly need some progress, need to learn new things and simply can’t sit around doing nothing. When it comes to free time, I prefer to spend it with my family and close friends. I’m trying to stay optimistic no matter what and live consciously in harmony with myself. I think this is the key to the biggest achievements, good mood and even your health.
what’s your favorite trend for the upcoming summer and are there any brands you can’t imagine your wardrobe without: my fav trend is most certainly 70s. Especially suede, denim and small check print.
Fortunately now days there are more and more new concept stores where you can find good choice with reasonable prices. I’ve also started to wear more clothing from russian designers, so I can’t name certain brands. Always trying to discover something new. But my favorite for a long time already are Isabel Marant and Carven. I know for sure that I can’t imagine summer without my Nike and New Balance sneakers, in spite the fact that it’s not a special trend anymore. Now it’s just way too popular. But I don’t care cause these are the most comfortable shoes for busy days.
