    “When I close my eyes, I see myself going down Sumska street, the main street in Kharkiv. I’m going through the park, near the theatres and old churches, and passing through the old city centre. I’m heading to Basanta, the home of my passion — music. Basanta is a label born in Ukraine and located in Kharkiv. As a DJ, I’m representing this brand, this team of like-minded people, burning with the idea and love for music. Basanta means spring, one who bestows wishes. And spring is the season of hope, the season of new life. It’s my biggest dream right now. It’s returning to Ukraine, meeting with my family, and of course, returning to my hometown — Kharkiv. So we are all waiting for Basanta.”

      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.

      Natasha, @natasha_kasatkina, is a striking model who has travelled the world as a professional face in fashion. Alongside getting in front of the camera, she has several successful business enterprises including Gemina Corp model agency, which frontlines Ukrainian models in the UK, along with music label Basanta which was launched with her and her partner. Having moved to London eight years ago, she has become a firmly established face in the UK fashion industry. 

      The designs named after Natasha are inspired by her radiance and ability to adapt to new environments; often taking fluid and moving forms. The soft versatility are mirrored in timeless pearls and woven floral armour rings.  



      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.

      "I think this will help the gifted youth. Many students cannot buy the necessary materials (paints, canvases, ect.) and they really want the support. After all, they stayed in Kyiv, often working in extreme conditions, but they never ceased to enjoy life and hope." Olga Morozova.
