Russian menswear designer Artem Shumov presents his new Spring-Summer 2022 collection.

“As always I try to reflect on my life through design. It helps me to accept reality, especially now, when we have so many new rules and restrictions. A city boy picking apples on a farm – this is the mood of this collection. Mixing styles, colors, fabrics with no judgment, but pure joy from the process”. – Artem Shumov

After taking a mental health break and spending it in the countryside of Russia, the designer focuses his creativity on bright colors, handcrafted fabrics and mixing different styles up.

The collection combines vinyl leather coats with tracksuits, classic suits with denim overalls and farm boots. Basic shades of blue, gray and white with the popping of electric lavender and muted fuchsia are featured in various textures: soft knitwear, dense denim, translucent silk and smooth linen.

The lookbook styled with huge fishing boots, real carrots and wildflowers refers to the countryside and emphasizes the bright, bold and fun mood of the new collection.
