For the first anniversary celebration we've chosen the residence of Yakov Polyakov aka Small Mariinsky Palace. It's the younger brother of the big Mariinsky, which is the ceremonial residence of the President. KYIVNESS was located in three halls: here is vintage Yohji Yamamoto and Prada next to the pilasters, local projects, bistro and music under the stained glass dome. And, of course, the garden.
Garden against the backdrop of the soviet hotel "Kyiv". If you want to — sit on the grass: with tea, wine or a vegan donut. If you like, dance to the Soundeе set and observe locals.
"IN THE EVENING AFTER KYIVNESS I'M SAVORING THE FINDS. LOOKING FORWARD TO UNFOLD THE PAPER WITH VINTAGE VASE FROM PARIS AND BEVZA PUMPS".
"LISTENING TO MUSIC IN THE PALACE IS A PARTICULAR PLEASURE. THE MOST INSPIRING FOR ME IS THE COMBINATION OF MODERN MUSIC AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE PAST."
If you look out the window above the entrance, you can see croissants in the bistro, where they immediately fly out of the hands of Yana and Christine (Foodies), Reshat starts his music set with David Bowie, and Catherine from Vanderbilt Vintage is packing something rare.
Space reigns supreme. And the city reigns serenely.
