Cristina Sabaiduc SS14 Film
The Cristina Sabaiduc collection focuses on precise feminine cuts with conceptual prints and fabrications, creating a versatile elegance. With the idea of past life for inspiration, this season Cristina has worked with medieval stained glass artefacts on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum. Artist Jo Holland captured these in her entirely analogue process, using an enlarger, positive photo paper and light. The resulting images give the fragments new life as vivid digital prints alongside technical, sheer and reflective fabrics.
Set against the backdrop of an English wood, the film focuses on colour, texture and movement, while playing with the concept of time’s effect on the body, garment, architecture and nature. A freerunning model perches, spins, and dives between the tall branches of ancient Beech trees. Her performance embodies elements of ballet, gymnastics, and parkour. More motion art than narrative the film evokes the essence of the Cristina Sabaiduc woman as a force of nature; strong, elegant, and spirited. Produced in collaboration with one of the UK's most innovative art collectives and directed by the designer herself, the film blurs the lines between art and fashion presentation—a theme, which continually informs and drives Cristina's work.
