After the events of 2020, a new fashion season can feel futile and far from the mind. But Kristina Fidelskaya’s latest collection, entitled ‘Dream,’ offers the kind of fantasy fashion we need, alongside a series of chic on-the-go looks to launch us back into reality. It’s time to dress up and dream again
For Dubai-based ready-to-wear label, Kristina Fidelskaya, the autumn/winter 2020 season’s storyline is set the ‘70s and ‘80s, between Paris and Florence, inspired by the 1977 drama Bobby Deerfield. The collection reflects a love story, with elegant tulle skirts and feather-adorned dresses that flow in the wind — mirroring some of the beautiful moments between protagonists Bobby Deerfield and Lillian Morelli as they travel across Europe. While other silhouettes, such as a leather jumpsuit in tan and silk printed day dresses, dip into the film’s wardrobe which showcases race car driver leathers, three-piece suits and relaxed, yet sophisticated dresses with jackets flung over the shoulder.
Centered on the concept of a ‘Dream,’ there are looks to dream about wearing (the fantastical couture-like gowns); pieces that are made to be worn while working on your dream (think, office-appropriate modest dresses, a series of loungewear for daydreaming at-home and on-the-go denims); and outfits that can make your dream a reality (more structured shapes in top-to-toe cream, soft yellow tailoring and trench coats that mean business). It’s a collection that appeals to the empowered dresser and offers inspiration to those of us that need an extra boost.
Despite its AW20 tag, the line is catered to the transeasonal wardrobe, and the Middle Eastern woman. The soft shades, air-light textures and clean, modernist forms can be worn from summer-to-autumn, and re-worn for many seasons to come. Who doesn’t need a bell-sleeved wrap dress, a cashmere lounge suit and a show-stopping corset cocktail dress for wow factor moments? Paired with a Halm x Kristina Fidelskaya carrier, you’ll be ready to confidently take on the new season — or dance in your living room in frothy, feather-trimmed gown, the choice is yours.
