Lookbook of the jewelry collection of Petr Axenoff "The Young Lady-Peasant Woman"
The new jewelry collection of Petr Axenoff is inspired by the work of Alexander Pushkin and is named in honor of his story "The Young Lady-Peasant Woman". Earrings and pendants are painted with enamel images of dandelions, chamomiles and peonies. Brooches and earrings are made in the form of lilies of the valley, bells and poppies. Some pieces are decorated with a portrait of Natalia Goncharova, which, according to the jeweler, is a model of female beauty for him. There is the profile of Pushkin on cuff links and rings. The Pushkin theme was continued in a lookbook, which photographer Vladimir Shirokov took in the estate near Moscow "Ostafyevo", which belonged to the close friend of the poet Peter Vyazemsky. Pushkin was a frequent visitor to Ostafievo, walked along the lime avenue and read poetry to friends. In June 2017 Axenoff arranged a costume ball in the estate.
Shirokov photographed the actresses of the Moscow theaters, reincarnated in front of the camera in the Pushkin heroines: Liza Muromskaya from "The Young Peasant Woman", Tatyana from "Eugene Onegin" and others. Pictures stylized as antique daguerotypes: so convincing!
