#WesternFashion - Here's How The Chakshyn Fashion Brand Is Creating Womenswear From Menswear And Pearls
The international fashion scene has had it's fair share of fashion brands spring up. While some brands have found themselves lost in the crowd, others have found a unique selling point to turn heads in their direction.
The Chakshyn fashion brand, which was founded in 2015 by designers Dima Chayun and Anton Yakshyn, is one of such brands. The brand has an eponymous brand name that was created from the surnames of both designers.
They have been featured on Elle Nederland, Vogue Russia, Harper's Bazaar US and Vogue Poland.
What Makes the Chakshyn Brand Unique?
Even though the Chakshyn fashion brand specialises in womenswear, like thousands of other fashion brands, they, in no way, followed the usual trends.The pieces they create are a marriage between menswear and womenswear which give birth to one-of-a-kind looks.
The suits, trench coats and dresses the brand makes are best described as works of arts. With feminine silhouettes gotten from masculine outfits, their pieces are a sight to behold. Even their leather bags collection boasts a unique and different take on bags.
The brand did not just stop at women's clothing outfits made from regular fabric, they also delved into making clothing outfits and accessories from pearls. From pearl bralettes to pearl belts, pearl harnesses and pearl earrings, they are doing it all.
The pearl beaded bralettes, particularly, have caught the attention of many with its sheer simplicity and simple elegance. All of their beaded accessories and leather bags were made in collaboration with other brands.
