In 2006, Igor Chapurin founded the brand Chapurin that is focused on the ready-to-wear womenï¿½s wear.
On October 2, 2005 - first Paris pret-a-porter show took place. Chapurin shows the Spring-Summer 2006 collection.
Chapurinï¿½s collections play skilfully with Russian clichï¿½s and myths. Fur, glitter and ornament dominate, but also geometrical tailoring that in its rigour is reminiscent of Constructivism. The themes of his shows are very often strong women from Russian culture, such as Anna Karenina and Anastasia. It is a very feminine glamour that he propagates ï¿½ extravagant, ostentatious and sometimes a tad kitschy, but never vulgar.
