Korsun’s new collection brings volume, colour and proportion in focus. The brand’s designers imagined they were abstract artists working with clay or on canvas, and then transferred their ideas to fabric, shades and silhouettes. The collection’s heroine appears sincere, cheerful and a little daring without slightest hint of artifice.
“We tried to go beyond the classic fashion clichés and combine incongruous using non-standard solutions,” Korsun’ creative director Sergei Surkov attests. “Tropical forests of the former Spanish colonies became our main inspiration. The delicate jacquard weaving reminds us of the eternal secrets hidden in the jungle. There is something innate behind these patterns, a reflection of a lively mind”.
Items are cut out and tailored with meticulousness that is inherently haute couture. Only natural materials are used: the finest wool, cashmere and softest silk. Accentuated in each look are the texture of the fabric and depth hidden in rich shades of blue, green and orange.
Jacquard parkas and light overcoats are key pieces of the collection. All outerwear is designed loose-fitting as to not hinder movement and emphasise the freedom-loving nature Korsun heroine.
The two-sided kimono decorated with patterned embroidery deserves special attention. It is designed to be worn with bright coloured long trousers. Also to be found in the collection: long skirts, made of cascading silk; cropped tops, embroidered with large beads; bell-bottomed high-waist pants; and delicate silk dresses.
All in all the collection is designed for strong, vibrant and seductive women, who are not shy to take on the world.
Korsun’s designers aim to convey the influence of Spanish culture that is integral for the brand, while using non-conventional methods. In the Autumn-Winter 2016/17 Collection this was reflected in deliberately simple forms and A-shaped silhouettes strengthened with bright details and embroideries in abundance.

A new name in high fashion: Katrine Korsun–a spirited, energetic, and creative mind from Marbella by-way-of-Moscow. Vision, commitment, and purpose are attributes present in her radiant designs and dynamic personality–put simply, Katrine wishes to share her innate sense of style and beauty with the world. A traveler since her teenage years, Katrine was enlivened by the art, fashion, textiles, and colors from her sojourns–which accumulated until her decision to dedicate her life to the creation of fashion. This decision was realized when she set her feet in Marbella, Spain–a place which has inspired her to channel her aesthetic voice. With seemingly ever-present sunshine, Marbella effortlessly weaves divergent cultures and styles and has, in turn, inspired Katrine to reflect the irrepressible energy of Marbella through clothing designed for vibrant and dynamic women, like a textile travelogue. These ideas remained nascent within Katrine for a long time when, in 2015, she met with a like-minded team of design professionals and brought her vision to life.
From the day the concept of KORSUN was conceive, Katrine has focused on creating an international brand that emphasizes high-quality design from a confidently personalized, yet global point of view. These values have become part of the brand’s DNA. The KORSUN collection combines kaleidoscopic color with European elegance and casual luxury. A seductive cut, first-class fabrics and bold details meet the demands of every woman. The modernist approach of the brand’s designers successfully blends classic and contemporary experimental features to propel fashion forward.
KORSUN is a brand that experiments and provokes at the same time. Bright colors, minimalist prints, intricate embroideries and shape-retaining fabrics have become integral elements of the collections. KORSUN follows the philosophy of deconstructivism, preferring complex cuts and unusual color combinations. High-quality materials allow KORSUN designers to evoke an avant-garde style. Lines and shapes seamlessly blend classic luxury with modern style.
