“When you quiet the mind — The soul will speak.”
— MA JAYA SATI BHAGAVATI.
In the absence of speech, stillness forms, and clarity emerges, beauty becomes clearer. Beauty does not need to show off, does not compete, does not need to be in a rush — beauty is not loud.
The Autumn / Winter 2022’s looks are an ode to our ever-evolving emotions and to embracing quietude, silencing our thoughts. This season’s collection is a dedication to the pure magnetism of beings presence, together in stillness. The collection unfolds as a story of ethereal freedom, with a portrayal of feminine nonchalance, worked into relaxed silhouettes, composed of soft-spoken suede, indulgent cashmere, sumptuous knitwear, retro-inspired sequin ensembles, fish scale embroidered evening-wear, and an evolution of the KF logo print.
The collection is composed of a variety of re-designed contemporary classics, comprised of the brand’s signature elaborately worked leather, as well retro-inspired ruffles, modernized corsets, and revisited fringed cut-work outerwear. The collection’s color palette is drawn from the tranquility of nighttime, with tones of midnight darkness, velvety twilight hues, and shades of the rising sun over the horizon.
“At Kristina Fidelskaya we love what we do. We see every day as a gift, we enjoy the present moment as much we as love looking toward to the future. Every garment, and every collection, tells a story. We are inspired by these stories - both written and unwritten.” — says Fidelskaya.
As part of a continued partnership with Maison Michel Paris, the collection includes two Kristina Fidelskaya hats made by Maison Michel Paris, the “Bibi” and “Brigitte”, in leather, both available in black, and white.
Established in Dubai in 2014, the label has since been recognized by the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, and presented as part of Paris Fashion Week.
Kristina Fidelskaya is available at a selection of department stores and retailers around the world, and its flagship stores in the UAE at The Dubai Mall, and Mall of the Emirates, as well as online at kristinafidelskaya.com
