UAE-based designers Kristina Fidelskya and accessories brand HALM have collaborated on a limited-edition collection.
The two brands have combined their contemporary styles and minimalistic designs to create a capsule collection of four exclusive bags.
The collection titled “Dream” was conceived as a meeting of minds between the founders of each label, Hanna Ransjö and Kristina Fidelskaya. The partnership materialized organically through their mutual appreciation for creative artistry and fondness for high-quality leatherwork – inspirited by their aligned aesthetic and attention to detail.
“Our collaboration is an organic relationship that came about between two emerging brands. Our shared ethos and appreciation for curating classic pieces that can be handed down between generations, saw us come together to create a collection of handbags that embody both the HALM and Kristina Fidelskaya woman.” Said Hanna Ransjö
The limited-edition bags represent a nostalgic yet modernized view of the future, one of hope and belief. Defining daring style, the bag collection is bold – composed of unusual forms, unique elements, and in the neutral shades Lin, Ebony & Kanel (Cinnamon in Swedish) – envisioned as timeless and made to endure a lifetime.
The ‘Dream’ backpack and the ‘Bino’ handbag, are assorted to the Kristina Fidelskaya Autumn/Winter 2020 collection and are an exclusive addition to HALM’s seasonless collection. This backpack will complement any sport-luxe look and can also be paired with an elegant ensemble. The soft shape is designed for the comfort of everyday use, to showcase true versatility.
“The collaboration is a reflection of modern femininity, we want to create contemporary pieces, that conform to diverse styles & can be worn with easy, timeless accessories that have a story to tell. Such as ourselves, HALM is a young brand, with a real appreciation for high-quality leatherwork – it was the perfect match. We share the same philosophy, and have a mutual understanding of the feminine ideals, interpreted into our pieces” said Kristina Fidelskaya
The limited-edition collection will be available in September 2020, in limited quantities in line with the collaboration’s sustainability stance focused on waste prevention, to encourage the redesign of resource life cycles of all retail products.
