I was visiting the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts the other day, and found the most fabulous catalogue on Russian regional folk costume in the bookstore. Better yet, the edition was published by the Fondation Pierre Berge-Yves Saint Laurent. Saint Laurent's most decadent and luxurious work was the Rich Russian collection of 1976, so it is nice to see the original sources of inspiration.
Here are some highlights from the catalogue. I hope you like these ensembles as much as I do; they are truly a wonder. Enjoy!
