Gosha’s Gang: A Who’s Who of the Designer’s Inner Circle


Cult-favorite Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy painted Pitti Uomo red this year when he took over an abandoned tobacco factory in Florence, Italy for his first runway show at the annual trade fair. For the occasion, he recruited his usual crew of models, muses, and collaborators, including stylist Lotta Volkova, Paul Hameline, and 16-year-old Valentin Fufaev. In addition, Rubchinskiy also cast a crew of Soviet-looking teenage boys with bleached buzz cuts and without facial hair as the models. They were a sharp contrast to the usual Pitti peacocks--but hey, that’s what friends are for.
