Maria Kochetkova Launches Her T-Shirt Line "Koche-Kova"

November 28, 2015

Maria Kochetkova
is not only an incredible ballerina, but also a consistent go-to for style inspiration (seriously, check out her Instagram—I want everything she wears). It was only a matter of time before the San Francisco Ballet and American Ballet Theatre principal made her mark in the fashion world as a designer. Kochetkova just released her t-shirt collection, “Koche-Kova,” online (just in time for the holidays! Hiiii friends and family, I know you’re reading this).

Each quote is hand-picked and hand-written by Kochetkova and then printed onto the tees. She says of her picks, “Sappho is one of the very few female poets writing in the 6th century BC and Emily Dickinson’s strength and vision is inspiring. Pushkin is one of the greatest Russian writers so I had to include him…Kharms is another writer I’ve read since I was a child. His seemingly simple writing that is nonetheless filled with sarcasm appeals to me.” We love the concept, the quotes and the charm of these shirts (and also because when have we ever not loved a ballet-fashion collaboration?). Check out some of our favorites below.
