novikov was a leading figure of soviet nonconformist art in the 1980s, and happens to emerge once again as an cultural icon of sorts in russia's underground scene. rubchinskiy's new designs incorporate elements from five works from novikov's horizons series from that era. as said, the capsule collection will be exclusively available at the four aforementioned stores, but if you don't reside near one, no worries, all items can also be ordered online. location : 6-9-5 ginza [ginza]. location : 160 lexington avenue [nomad]. location : 17-18 dover street market [mayfair]. location : 54 rue du faubourg st.-honoré [st.-honoré].
