Women’s ready-to-wear brand Boyarovskaya, which has been part of Designers Apartment for the past year and counts around 10 stockists, launched its first ever line of leather handbags this season. The bags are made in Italy, come in geometric shapes, and are designed to be multi-functional. With its bio-degradable clothes that feature clean graphics and impeccable cuts, the brand plays with couture elements to create a classic, elegant style which shows character in its small details with metal eyelets or buttons on a trench coat, horizontal slits on pants, an unexpected drape on a jacket, and deconstructed silhouettes. The brand was founded in 2016 in Paris by Belarusian stylist Maria Boyarovskaya, 29, and Ukrainian fashion photographer Artem Kononenko, 30. Boyarovskaya is an Istituto Marangoni graduate who has collaborated with Givenchy and John Galliano and Kononenko followed up studies in art school with a Masters in international economics.
