The Russian brand Subterranei has developed from a blog of the same name. While studying at The Central Saint Martins, Alina Tsyganova and a friend launched a blog about the alternative culture in London. “Subterranei” means “underground” from Latin. Alina from an early age saw herself as a designer, Alina’s mother Oksana Bondarenko, president of Show-room Li-lu, supported her daughter in this beginning. In 2016, Alina launched her own clothing brand, she combined minimalism and aesthetics of youth culture. Interest in avant-garde painting of the early XX century and the fascination with modern visual art are reflected in all collections of Tsyganova. Experiments with transparent fabrics, colored plastic and slogans – this is what gets out Subterranei from the underground to the fashion mainstream.
