This Deux Editorial comes straight out of the Iron Curtain. But there's nothing hammer and sickle about it. Designer Vadim Merlis wanted to create a world that was steeped in retro, romanticism and a little bit of madness to complement his excellent designerwear.
Pastel hues, dreamy colors, and a young spirit - are what came out of this collaboration between Vadim and photographer Ruslan Isinev. A sort of idyllic childlike setting juxtaposed by the discontentment of reality is what truly encapsulates Isinev's vision and Merlis's work.
