Vassilisa
Named after the much-loved Russian fairytale heroine, Vassilisa The Beautiful, this poetic collection of silk scarves is influenced by mythology and folklore.

Based in London and designed by Nadja Solovieva, Vassilisa has clientèle including Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle MacPherson and Kate Moss. Nadja is a native Moscovite who has been sketching clothes with her designer mother since she was a child. Moving to London aged 21, Nadja went on to study at fashion design school Central St Martins.

Nadja was selected from many hopefuls to represent the college in their globally watched catwalk show - the collection was an instant success and buyers snapped it up.

Inspired by animals and nature, Nadja creates romantically feminine scarves with an emphasis on wearable originality. Her designs are all unique and limited edition with an exquisite focus on prints while employing the fine tradition of natural silks and intricately woven yarns.

This season, Nadja collaborated with stylist Zoe Bedeaux - better known for her shoots with Juergen Teller - to create a collection with a dark, animalistic, and enchanting energy. Snakes, mink tails and feathers feature in a palette of black, grey, emerald green, flame red and blue.
