Igor Chapurin, fashion designer, designer:- Our modern life is a continuous flow of information emanating from various spheres of human life. We receive it quickly and process it just as quickly, transforming each into a form convenient for us. Getting into the interior world, a fashion designer joins in an unusual environment for him, but he continues to develop, while trying to preserve his individuality, his recognizable style. When creating clothes, furniture, interiors, Igor always tries to preserve his uniqueness. “Fluidity is very important to me,” he says. - A person should feel comfortable and comfortable wearing clothes created by me, sitting on a sofa that I have invented. There are six components that, according to the designer, are important in the creation of any thing:

  • comfort,
  • Color harmony,
  • proportionality,
  • Transformability or functionality,
  • Air as an element of design,
  • Light as an element of design.

Igor Chapurin, designer, designer: - I create objects that people should not just like, they should love them for many years, that's why details, textures, and the feeling of man-made are very important in them. Everything should be tactilely pleasant, therefore all my furniture is made of such natural materials as wenge, leather, suede, matte metal. I believe that the original and unusual should be a form, and colors and textures are only natural. Igor believes that in interior design, as infashion, everything is important - color, shape, material, print, texture ... Moreover, colors play a huge role. They can visually influence not only the form, but also the perception of the image as a whole. The designer's favorite colors are chocolate brown, graphite gray, soft beige, olive, yellow. Igor Chapurin, fashion designer, designer: - I prefer natural, but complex colors, which, when mixed, would create a multifaceted and multi-level image, and not a straightforward art object, as in pop art. Playing with light and matte / glossy surfaces often helps to achieve the desired result. Reflecting from them, refracting in others and disappearing in others, light plays an important role, becomes an integral part of the interior. I was taught this by working in the theater, where light is often the only way to convey the mood of the surrounding hero of reality.

What colors are waiting for us in the new season?

Igor Chapurin, fashion designer, designer:- In the upcoming spring-summer season, complex colors and "dirty" shades of simple colors await us: dusty yellow, noble pink, white and olive with a slight grayish tint ... All colors seem to be a little dirty from spring mud. After all, even the snow turns black in the spring! These colors are easier to combine, creating harmonious and eye-pleasing looks. I'll tell you a secret that I already have the color palette of the fall-winter collection 2015/2016 ready! But this is still a secret. I can only say that the highlight will be noble emerald and graphite with a slight sheen ...
