LOVELETTER TO KYIV | Spring 2023
Dreamlike in aesthetic, the designs reveal texture left behind from the war flowers which were burnt into the metal surface. The flowers were picked from the new frontlines in Kyiv and eternalised in recycled precious metals. The project began in March when a brave Kyivan artist Olga Morozova agreed to go searching for flowers as her city fell ablaze. The pressed botanicals, were picked by Morozova in the first spring as frost thawed and bombing raids tormented Kyiv. The collection is a symbol of hope and flourishing in a time of great upheaval; a reminder that while life may be fragile, it is resilient.
Celebrating the creative voices of 6 Ukranian Muses behind the collection, who have the power to inspire and create.
20% sales to support artists in Ukraine.
KATHERINA | MUSE
Katherina (@katherina_kubanova) is a talented set-designer known for dreaming up fantasy scenes for commercial and creative sets; transforming white sterile studios into new worlds over a matter of hours. Her art has seen her travel internationally.
At the ripe age of 26 she left Kyiv to pursue her career in Stockholm then London, where she is based at this time.
Inspired by her aesthetic, the designs named after Katherina adorn the skin with delicacy and also draw the gaze. Phoebe is inspired by Katherina's unique alchemy of strength, defiance and creativity; alongside a timid shyness that lies within many of us.
UKRAINE FOR THE FUTURE
20% of sales will go to Future of Ukraine, a foundation that artist Olga Morozova has set up for this collection and project.
The fund has been set up to help support talented young artists in Kyiv by providing essential art supplies and materials to further their skills.
Many students who remained in Kyiv during the war have been unable to escape the realities of frequent air raids, violence and disruptions. Olga has been teaching in the shelters, and has noticed how powerful this time can be to create art, build their own realities and nurture skills. With Olgas' teaching, and access to tools through this foundation, we can invest in the talented younger generations in Ukraine.
