Since 1998, Christina Bobkova has been designing timeless yet unique and instantly recognisable collections for her eponymous brand, a perfect mix of feminine style and masculinity, strength and grace, underlined by the Japanese-style cut that gives a touch of discipline and elegance.

Slip cuts and minimal, sober lines rethink gender stereotypes to dress a woman who is chic and practical at the same time, always on the move but style-conscious. The collections are always full of androgynous details, but also borrowed from the East, with cotton wrap dresses reminiscent of Japanese yukatas and kimonos or wool jackets reminiscent of Chinese Changshans, typically masculine.

The colour palette is minimal for the winter with white and ice grey, dark blue and black, and turns to earthy colours for the spring-summer collection, with ochre, sage green and sky blue, terracotta and orange.

The must-have piece? The silk jacket stolen from the men’s wardrobe, with a super straight cut and no lapels, to be worn strictly with palazzo or super-slouchy trousers, and without a shirt. The quintessence of effortless chic.
