Hi. This is Gosha Kartsev channel. I’m Gosha Kartsev. And this Kartsev Street because you can never get too much of Kartsev. So I’m thinking, do designers wear clothes they design? Is it okay that we wear their clothes but they don’t? If they don’t. Whether they wear them or not, we’ll try and find out. So stay tuned because this video is without ads. I’m off. Kartsev Street My name is Oleg Ovsiyov. I’m the designer of Viva Vox. I live in Moscow and another wonderful city. Which one? Amsterdam. Stan Smiths, I’ve got about 25 pairs of these. They cost €95 I guess. The trousers are from H&M x Lanvin. They cost ₽3-4. Yes, maybe. The polo-shirt is also from H&M. €30 maybe. The sunglasses were bought in an underpass for ₽600. The backpack is from Givenchy. Thank goodness. Thank goodness? So you’re snobbish about dressing up, aren’t you? Get lost then. Okay, bye. This one cost about €900. The watch, it’s too difficult to pronounce. About €2,000. Do you think a designer should wear their clothes? I’ve got shirts from Viva Vox. I’ve got jeans from Viva Vox. I mean I don’t want to hunt for the trendiest one of this season from Balenciaga. You don’t have to care too much, right? It’s my opinion, you don’t. Okay. Thanks a lot, Oleg. But you can if you want to. And the most important thing! You thought we’d shoot this video without Zina? No way! Here she is! Zina, do you copy? Howdy doody! Did you miss me? Good evening, Igor. I got these sneakers from my friend, a premier danseur at Bolshoi theatre Denis Rodkin. So I don’t know the price. The T-shirt is from Chapurin. The jacket is about €400. The trousers are about €200. They’re last season, a bit out of fashion. Tell me please, do you think a designer should wear clothes they design? A designer should wear clothes he designs because he proves they’re comfortable, he likes them. But he doesn’t have to wear only them because life is many-sided. One more question. Do you think a designer should look trendy? I think it’s individual. I had this fetish, during all 12 shows in Paris, I’d buy a V-shaped cashmere jumper from Saint Laurent before the show. There was a line of basic models of really complex colours. When I came to the shop, they’d show me 101 mint-coloured ones, for example. And if the collection was mint-coloured, I was also mint-coloured. It was just a game, just for fun. So I’m for freedom. Good afternoon. Good evening, my dear friends. Or what time of day is it? Good whatever time of day it is! Hi, my name is Konstantin Gayday. I design a lot of things. But I’m best known for accessories and headwear. These are from Kim Malygin, a Russian designer.

They cost $200. The earrings with black diamonds are from Konstantin Gayday. This ring is mine too, with Buddha, ruby. The watch is from Girard-Perregaux, about $500. Should a designer look trendy? They should look trendy because first impressions count. If a designer looks so-so, people wouldn’t trust them. And the sales would be so-so. Should a designer wear clothes they design? I think it’s common courtesy. I wear my clothes. This is karaoke. Welcooome! To VDNKh-aaah. Hey. – Hey. What’s your name? Where are you from? My name is Roma. I’m from Maikop, Adygea.

I think they should propel the idea they’re trying to express in their clothes. Yes, they should. And wear their clothes? In fact I have to do it because I need to test them.

When I wear my clothes, I feel great. Of course you should! You design clothes! Wear it what you design please. Is it important for a designer to look trendy? Not at all. There are two groups.

Yes, of course it is. A designer is the one to show how to wear and combine their clothes. Especially if they’re as beautiful as you. Should a designer look trendy? A designer should design cool clothes. If they fail to combine something, there are stylists. It’s their job to show us what’s trendy. High five! Greatest quotes, YouTube. You can wear and combine them better than I do. But do it reasonably. I didn’t get it to wear clothes or not to wear. To look trendy or not to look. It’s too complicated.
