Russia's hottest rising designer, Gosha Rubchinskiy, just announced a new collaboration—this time with, as i-D notes: "painter/philosopher/designer/art theorist" Timur Novikov. The collaboration will be available exclusively at Dover Street Market locations. It's a fitting development, as the store just released Rubchinskiy's Autumn/Winter 2015 collection.

Tapping Novikov is a perfect match for Rubchinskiy. Not only does Novikov's work fit well with Rubchinskiy's affinity for mixing pre and post-Soviet Russian culture in his clothing, but he's already released designs inspired by Novikov's "Horizons" series. Novikov's Horizons will yet again prove to be the inspiration behind this latest capsule, mimicking Novikov's penchant for simplistic graphics and bright colors. The release will consist of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and caps.
Considering Gosha's excellent relationship with Dover Street Market (and Rei Kawakubo's Comme des Garçons network), it should come as no surprise that DSM will be selling the capsule collection exclusively. Whether you slept on his Autumn/Winter 2015 drop, or just recently fell in love with the Russian designer, you should be prepared to cop the instant the gear goes on sale on July 25.
