Come parte del movimento #fashionforpeace, Ksenia Schnaider ha disegnato una capsule collection per un digital concept store n-duo-concept.com, curato da Natuka Karkashadze e Nino T Silosani.

La collezione è basata sui 3 colori simbolo della cultura Ucraina, ogni capo è decorato con le classiche rose ricamate in bianco, rosso e nero. “Chervona Ruta 89” è stato il working title della collezione in onore del primo festival rock organizzato in Ucraina. La linea comprende alcuni vestiti iconici di Ksenia rielaborati, ispirati dalle vesti di eremiti e monaci, con parka leggeri molto comodi e con un intricato ricamo. Capo chiave della collezione la felpa a maniche lunghe decorata con le rose e lo slogan #fashionforpeace. Tutti i capi sono fabbricati in Ucraina e puntano a sostenere l’industria tessile e portarla a un livello superiore.

Ksenia Schnaider: “Il movimento #fashionforpeace ci ha ispirato a creare questa collezione che racconta un po’ della nostra terra, l’Ucraina, la sua tradizione e la sua cultura in modo positivo e allegro. Ecco perché la mia moodboard era ricoperta di immagini di costumi da Chervona Ruta, un film musical pop-folk ucraino del 1971, e immagini da Chervona Ruta rock festival organizzato nel 1989. Sono davvero contenta di aver potuto parlare del mio paese a professionisti della moda durante la PFW e sono davvero grata a tutti quelli che hanno visto la nostra collezione”

Daria Shapovalova: “L’idea di #fashionforpeace continua a coinvolgere sempre più fashion insider. I fondatori di N-duo concept store (Natuka Karkashadze and Nino Tsilosani) hanno collaborato con Kenia Schaider e hanno sviluppato l’idea di questa linea di abbigliamento.

Natuka Karkashadze: “Ci è subito piaciuta l’idea di Daria e abbiamo deciso di partecipare con grande entusiasmo per supportare i designer ucraini in un momento così difficile per la nazione. Kenia Schnaider ha realizzato dei vestiti molto belli nello spirito dei costumi tradizionali ucraini ma in chiave moderna e attuale. È stato davvero bello lavorare con Daria Shapovalova, per noi una delle persone più interessanti e positive del fashion world.”

La collezione sarà disponibile online su n-duo-concept.com



As part of the public fashion movement #FASHIONFORPEACE Ksenia Schnaider designed a capsule collection for an online concept store N-Duo-Concept.com, curated by Natuka Karkashadze and Nino T silosani,

The collection is based on three key colors of Ukrainian culture. Each item, decorated with traditional cross-stitched roses, is executed in red, white and black. “Chervona Ruta`89” was the collection’s working title to honor the first ever rock festival in Ukraine. The capsule collection includes Ksenia Schnaider’s reworked trademark dresses, inspired by the uniforms of hermits and monks, and light parkas with a strong must-have potential as they combine practical comfort with intricate embroidery on the front and the back. A long-sleeved sweatshirt decorated with embroidered roses and the #FASHIONFORPEACE slogan can also become a great addition to a style-conscious wardrobe.

The collection is made of Ukrainian fabrics. This is a deliberate move to support Ukrainian industry and the first step to bring it to a higher level. Guests in MORE DASH showroom actively welcomed this concept during Paris Fashion Week – Beppe Angiolini (buyer for Sugar Arezzo, Italy), Sivano Vangi (buyer for Luisa Via Roma, Italy), Elena Paschenko and Alexandra Borodina (buyers for Helen Marlen, Ukraine), Livia Gregoretti (Livia Gregoretti showroom, Italy), Georgia Viola, Robb Young (Business of Fashion), Aliona Doletskaya (Interview Magazine), Dasha Veledeeva (Harper’s Bazaar Russia), Masha Tsukanova and Tatiana Solovey (Vogue Ukraine), Adam Katz Sinding (W Magazine, Le21eme), Yvan Rodic (Facehunter), Candela Novembre (blogger), Eugenia and Irina Linovich (designers and socialites

Ksenia Schnaider: “The #FASHIONFORPEACE movement inspired us to create this capsule collection that introduces Ukraine, its traditions and culture, in a positive and light-hearted manner. That’s why my moodboard was covered with pictures of costumes from Chervona Ruta, a 1971 Ukrainian pop-folk musical film, and video stills from eponymous Chervona Ruta festival – the first Ukrainian rock festival held back in 1989. I am very pleased that we could speak about Ukraine to fashion industry professionals during Paris Fashion Week in such a friendly atmosphere, and very grateful to everyone who attended.”

Daria Shapovalova: “The idea of #FASHIONFORPEACE resonates with more and more fashion insiders. Founders of the N-duo-concept store – Natuka Karkashadze and Nino Tsilosani – offered to collaborate with a Ukrainian designer, and Ksenia Schnaider came up with such a great idea. The Ksenia Schnaider x N-Duo Concept collection is very deep and memorable.”

Natuka Karkashadze: “We just fell in love with Daria’s brilliant idea – #FASHIONFORPEACE – and are very happy to join the initiative, supporting a Ukrainian designer during this difficult period for their country. Ksenia Schnaider created lovely dresses in the spirit of traditional Ukrainian costume, but so modern and wearable. It was very nice to host the event together with Daria Shapovalova – the most inspiring and positive person in the fashion industry.”

The collection will be available online on the N-Duo Concept store’s website.
