The Russian designer Valentin Yudashkin works closely together with his daughter who recently also became his artistic director. They can be thought of as being the Prada of the North. Having just enlisted Baciocchi Associati, the same architects as Prada and Miu Miu, for their own boutiques in Russia. Makes me want to go and visit the stores in person!
The first time I was introduced to Valentin Yudashkin was September last year – see his Spring collection write up here. Whilst the Spring collection was predominately light, Fall focuses fully on a mixture of black with touches of rich gold.

Valentin Yudashkin Strikes Again – Paris Fashion Week Fall 2017
Feminine floaty looks prevail with a touch of the 80’s and asymmetric patterns all in one. There is a trouser suit which could also double up as evening wear – a look that’s currently increasing in popularity. Note the polo neck jumper is here to stay, as are the off the shoulder looks. Beautiful evening dresses with touches of sheer fabric…
Pinstripes are coming back on the hot list for next Fall!
Just one more sign of off the shoulder look being here to stay!
So whilst lengths have dropped for Summer, Fall can remain shorter with thick tights. Note the structure of the fabric – next Fall structured fabric features large!
Love the way the staple polo neck jumper has been glamed up.
Note the mixing of fabrics, the ruffles and straight lines – it’s all about mixing features to create one totally new look.
My most favourite dress ever!
Thanks for the fabulous show Valentin!
Stay tuned for more Fall Fashion Week Highlights to come…
