Romanian/Canadian London based womesnwear dsigner Cristina Sabaiduc showed her S/S 2014 collection with a Digital Presentation featuring a short film and live models in the Canon Cinema and Presentation Space at Somerset House. During this London Fashion Week I noticed that a few collections looked back at times and cultures in which, via different belief systems, rituals and ways of living, man and nature had a somewhat better relationship than nowadays. For instance Ashish featured Egyptian inspired make up and helmets which could have belonged to Viking tribes, KTZ looked at the desert and nomads, while Lug Von Siga utilised the symbolism of tribal masks.

Following this trend, Cristina Sabaiduc’s short film, directed by herself, is a beautiful depiction of a girl dressed in items from her S/S 2014 collection climbing onto, jumping off and hanging from ancient Beech trees. The prints appearing on the garments are a collaboration with artist Jo Holland, who found inspiration in medieval stained glass artefacts at the Victoria and Albert Museum – thus appropriately lending religious connotations to this look at nature and the way the Cristina Sabaiduc woman interacts with it.
