The vision behind Kristina Fidelskaya's new Ready-to-Wear collection can be best described as a nostalgic look into the past as it resembles a stark reference to the plethora of images of androgyny portrayed by David Bowie while he stepped out of the Carlyle Hotel in New York, women in Paris walking along the Avenue Hoche imitating the iconic Elsa Peretti all this with the signature Kristina Fidelskaya dress coat.
The collections of Kristina Fidelskaya have this striking particularity with the creations of Mariano Fortuny whose work was appreciated by the wife of the poet Henri de Regnier stating, “The dresses usually, have only one future, these dresses already seem to have a past that will add a graceful melancholy". That is evident in her Autumn Winter 18-19 collection, "Nuovo Inizio".
This remembrance e of a piece in time by Kristina Fidelskaya has a hint of Montana paying homage to the oversized shoulders and precise silhouttes that fall down to grace the waistline with deconstruction as it core spirit, delicate tailoring and Geoffrey Beene’s incredible graphic line bleeding into the fluid movements of the garment.
A marriage of cashmere, silk, dry wool and laminated cotton has been created inspired by the colors and textures of the work of Alberto Burri on the combustion of vinyl.
Every touch reminds you of the elegance and fine artisanal craftsmanship on the glossy gabardines, the black jersey and the matt papery leather and the fluid silk fringes.
Kristina’s work stands true to its vision of looking back at the past with the aesthetics of the modern day world, a look back to the past in remembrance for the ferocious and bold women.
