By Olga Olkhovskaya
New collections of clothes and footwear, as well as favourite domestic brands, held their heads high against those of foreign manufacturers. Orsha Linen Mill presented its new ‘home’ collection using upholstery weight linens in various colours. Meanwhile, its new ‘northern silk’ fabric, using unique ‘enzymic’ processing, drew great attention, being as soft and comfortable as a blanket to the touch.
Footwear from natural felt enjoyed great popularity among visitors to the Lida Footwear Factory stand, which presented its warm boots for next autumn-winter, as well as linen espadrille sandals for adults and children.
Komintern JSC presented its traditional wear, including smart men’s business suits in natural fabrics and stylish knitwear, designed for ‘stretch and comfort’. This allows easy movement while giving a good fit, explains Irina Labaznikova, Komintern’s artist and designer, and is suitable for all ages.
Belfa’s JSC superb artificial fur coats and jackets were of such high quality that it’s quite impossible to distinguish them from natural fur — even on close inspection. Their designs are available in various natural fur colours: the result of the latest technologies.
