Add Lublu Kira Plastinina to our list of favorite Russian imports — which, up until two weeks ago, was dominated by beluga, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Moscow Mules. Southern Methodist University senior and Russian fashion mogul Kira Plastinina has brought this much anticipated boutique to the Plaza at Preston Center. The 21-year-old communication studies honor student has already amassed a large Russian and European fan base with more than 300 stores across Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, employing more than 2,000. Just as she oversees every piece of clothing in her collection, Plastinina dreamed up the 1,000-square-foot boutique’s scheme, her first designer collection flagship store in The States. Light floods through windows onto travertine floors, custom leather and marble furnishings and open-floor bronze clothing racks. The soft tones set a quiet backdrop for her bold and bright offerings. Shoppers can expect to find Plastinina on the store floor, though she’ll be balancing return trips to headquarters in Russia and, of course, earning that undergrad degree. 8383 Preston Center Plaza, 214.346.3922; lublukiraplastinina.com.
