Alexander Terekhov

Country: Russia

The young designer has already twice collaborated with the Italian handbag company Coccinelle. This season, his inspiration came from the classic style of Grace Kelly. A-line dresses and empire-waist skirts were patterned with sponge-printed botanicals in warm tones of red, blue, and green. His timeless collections are universally wearable in any capital — a reason why Terekhov’s international popularity is growing.
