Cristina Sabaiduc’s new collection exhibits the true essence of summer and has a Sabaiduc woman in mind: stylish, spirited and sensual. The colours range from bright yellow, green and orange to neutral wheat and grey making the collection fresh and wearable. The construction of the collection is incredibly intricate, from the contrasting textures and fabrics to the prints created.

The prints were by an artist, Jo Holland, who recreated  the designs of medieval stained glass artefacts borrowed from the V&A museum using only an enlarger, positive photo paper and light.

The collection manages to seem delicate and feminine whilst using masculine tailoring which is present from AW13 fashion. Another trend than seems to transcend from AW13 is the overlapping ; heavier, woven fabrics were overlapped by sheer maxis, kaftans and capes.

The film that played along with the collection, showed a model wearing the clothes free-running through the woods, reminded one of those childhood evenings spent running around with friends until dark. It is a collection that cries summer is here.
