Jewish Couture at Moscow Fashion Week
Looks like religious chic is becoming a bona fide trend.
Sure, H&M has their own Tallit , but now haute couture is getting its own Jewish flavor.
At this week’s Moscow Fashion Week, Russian fashion house St. Bessarion — which, ironically, is named for a Christian saint — dressed models in clothes inspired by Orthodox Judaism. Models wore structured black hats that rested on the front of their heads and their hair was styled to look like peyes .
It’s been nearly 18 years since Jean-Paul Gaultier sent his models down the runway in Hasidic garb (see below), so it seems about time for the trend to make a comeback.
