Roberta Einar LFW

At London Fashion Week, in her most personal and, self-confessedly, most eclectic collection yet, Roberta Einer pays homage to her grandmother and celebrates the inspiring life of the woman who taught her how to knit and embroider – and bring to life what have become the distinct design hallmarks of the Roberta Einar brand today.

Roberta moved from her hometown of Talinn, Estonia to London to study on the prestigious fashion courses at Central Saint Martins and the University of Westminster. During her studies she completed internships with Mary Katrantzou and Alexander McQueen, before moving to Paris upon graduation to assist at Balmain for a year where she continued to develop her craft.

Motifs and embroideries inspired by artwork from Soviet era postcard and posters combine with traditional Russian embroidery, vintage scarves inspired prints for graphics on shirts and pyjamas, flowers and a remake and update od classic items from her grandmother’s wardrobe to frame the collection, which simultaneously marries Roberta Einer signatures: such as sequin-drenched disco trousers and embellished suits, as well as the smocking and denim stories from last season.
