In January 2017 Gosha Rubchinskiy presented his A/W 17 collection in the city of Kaliningrad. This was his first show in Russia since 2009. His open casting call was answered by young men from all over the country. INRUSSIA commissioned director team Papaya Dog and cinematographer Maxim Tomash to document their journey there. The film's protagonists Andrey, Ivan and Kirill live in Divnogorsk (5,420 km to Kaliningrad), Krasnodar (2,594 km to Kaliningrad) and Kaliningrad.
The film crew follows their daily routine at home and the preparations for the fashion show at Kaliningrad's Regional Center of Youth Culture. Apart layers their responses to a new experience, and offers an artistic representation of the three young men's attitudes and views. The documentary continues the collaboration between INRUSSIA and GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY in 2017. A guide to Kaliningrad was created by the designer's team and the platform's authors in January.
A documentary following Rubchinskiy's friends and collaborators PАССВЕТ on a skateboarding trip to the US is currently in production. The project is directed by pro skateboarder Tolia Titaev and filmed by artist Julian Klincewicz. It will premier in April 2017. INRUSSIA is an alternative guide to the Russian world. The platform publishes books, produces documentary films and brings Russian talent to public notice.
Waiting for new collection, have a look at Gosha Rubchinskiy S/S 2017 here.
