Ria’s collaboration with Roman Ermakov focuses on the links worlds of modernity and the Soviet Union, fresh ideas and retro style. Drawing inspiration from the history of USSR, Ria boldly uses the brightest associations about the life of the Soviet people, their attitude to sport and healthy lifestyle. The designer combines within a collection several cultural layers of the time, mixing the constructivist architecture and symbolic minimalist suits of the athletes. Impressed by Live sculptures of Roman Ermakov, Ria invited him to develop a series of prints and implement them in the collection.
