The Kristina Fidelskaya Autumn / Winter 2021 collection is named ‘Bibi’ – a subtle nod to “B.B”, a heroine of her time, a silver-screen icon, who’s enigmatic charisma captured the crowds, and who’s confidence inspired change. The etymology of “Bibi” refers to a name used as a term of respect – for the lady of the house, who commands her household, and the company she keeps.
The Autumn / Winter 2021’s looks are an ode to the modern women’s strength – adapted to her contemporary lifestyle, created for ease and convenience, with pieces that can be worn on-the-go, from day to night. The collection unfolds as a story of transformation – from western fringe on showman silhouettes, to soft layers of silk ruffles, to tier-layered leather ensembles, and delicate form-fitting dresses and bustier gowns. Timeless hues and soft shades, paired with sartorial comfort, make for a nonchalant fall season.
This season’s collection is composed of a variety of re-designed contemporary classics, and evening-wear looks, comprised of the brand’s signature intricate hand-cut leather & cut-work suede, as well as cashmere wool, silk chiffon, floral sixties print, antenna cockerel feathers, accentuated by fringe, ruffles, and hoodies worn under hats – a unique combination of feminine silhouettes worked into contemporary sportswear.
As part of a continued collaboration with HALM, the collection features the “Bino” bag re-edited in two new colorways, lin and sand. Brought together by the love of craftsmanship and refined details, the collaboration was conceived as a meeting of minds between the founders of each label, Hanna Ransjö and Kristina Fidelskaya – the partnership materialized through their mutual appreciation for creative artistry and high-quality leatherwork. The Bino handbag is inspired by an antique binocular case, and memories of sightseeing expeditions – combined with the view of a personal journey and the concept of time-travel. The Bino is created from HALM’s signature bull leather with a hard finish.
