Moscow-based fashion duo Nina Donis has released its Spring-Summer lookbook, with the designers uniting the strands of minimal design, creation of shapes and distilling multiple influences which has come to define the duo. Numerous influences can be detected in this season’s line, with design inspiration taken from a diverse range of sources ranging from 15th-century paintings to The Chemical Brothers, taking in Finnish design company Marimekko, David Bowie and aqueducts along the way. The fashion duo Nina Neretina and Donis Pupis launched their label 14 years ago and are widely considered to be pioneers of experimental minimalist design and two of most influential fashion designers in Russia. You can see a special The Calvert Journal retrospective of her work here.
