See how a Russian it-girl styles her H&M favourites
Writer and artist Sasha Mikhalkova keeps it cool and casual.
The grandchild of legendary director Nikita Mikhalkov, Sasha Mikhalkova is Russian film royalty. This far in her career, she has however chosen a different path: writing for Miroslava Duma’s online magazine Buro 24/7 and now trying her wings as a painter. But it is a budding style icon Sasha Mikhalkova who caught our eye. With her casual mix of menswear and a playful girl vibe (we love the way she styles this quilted Kenzo x H&M dress!), we expect her to make waves on the international street style scene soon enough.
We asked Sasha to style her current H&M favourites, and Adam Katz Sinding flew to Moscow to capture the result.
