Womenswear brand Drag & Drop, run by two sisters, Anna and Yulia Grazdhan delights in a playful sexy femininity and is based on comparing elements associated with classic luxury – such as lace, velvet and gemstones – with the relaxed silhouettes of sportswear. In their new collection, sports bras are teamed with lace bodices, oversized white coats with t-shirt dresses: it’s a combination of classic notions of girliness and the sporty style of today’s Kiev. It's about freedom and independence, the sisters suggest, the ability to move from the city's streets to a party to a lover's bedroom.
"Our video was shot in 36 hours, as the rental equipment was quite expensive, and we were working with a tight budget. I do remember one occasion being on the road at dawn rushing to get to our next shooting location at the Kyiv Sea, in a car full to the brim with clothes and filming equipment.
After 12 hours of non-stop shooting we were all very tired, and ended up being stopped at a police check-point. And just to my luck, I had forgotten my driving license! It was all very scary, however after a brief interrogation the policeman realised that we were on an important mission, and allowed us to carry on."– D&D told Just Magazine.
"A woman is dualistic by nature. Today she loves, tomorrow she hates. Our clothes say a lot about ourselves and who we are, and enable us to define our character and form our style arbitrarily. We use materials which are not of traditional taste but with a sporty, more casual fit"– D&D interview for Just Magazine Winter 2016.
