Winter collection by DZHUS

Garments that reference the aesthetics of Totalitarianism.
The brand's founder Irina Dzhus based her Totalitarium collection for Autumn Winter 2015 on styles associated with the Totalitarian political regimes of Germany, Italy and the Soviet Union between the first and second world war. During these regimes, the state attempted controlled all aspects of society and discouraged the expression of personal identity. Straight silhouettes and angular shoulders are designed to mimic the monumental structures commissioned by leaders of the regimes, while the textured grey fabrics evoke the concrete used to build them.
