Gosha’s latest work, “Youth Hotel,” is just that. It takes his fans into a mostly unknown world, and right into what sparks his style and vision for his fashion. The book features candid, ‘in the moment’ shots, of Russian teens from every walk of life, during a typical Russian day. It’s a refreshing look into lives that not many are aware of, and Gosha opens that door to be shared with the curious.
With only 500 exclusive units being published through IDEA books, at $45 each, Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Youth Hotel is a sure collectors piece for fashionistos, photography and book lovers alike.
