Prototypes: Prototype KR
At the end of her first ever catwalk show, staged at the Palazzo Pitti, Mariuccia Mandelli, Krizia (a name borrowed from Plato’s dialogue on feminine vanity) distinguished herself by winning the Fashion Critic’s Award.
Her fashion was based on research, creativity, project and design, founded on a neat geometry but also rich in references and precious details.
Every single fashion collection by Krizia had an animal as a lucky charm, with an increasing aggressiveness and a sort of jungle which has now become a ritual: Krizia’s zoo.
Her fashion was also influenced by modern and contemporary art, a constant search for new materials as well as her famous plissè.
Bestowed the honour “Commendatore della Repubblica Italiana”, she has been awarded with international prizes and dedicated exhibitions in the most renowned museums in the world, such as the Musèe des Arts et de la Mode, Paris; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.
From June 29 to July 12, we will be present at the XXIII Architecture World Congress in Turin with our space in the Cavallerizza pavilion.
Last Tuesday saw the meeting with Krizia at the Cavallerizza Maneggio Chiablese in Turin, at which, on the occasions of the XXIII World Congress of Architecture and of Torino Design Capital, we were present with our space until July 21.
