Waves with infinite motion sheltered by thè sinuous outlines of mountains. During her long solitary walks to thè lake, Zhu Chongyun, thè visionary creative director and owner of Krizia, envisaged a delicate iconographic bridge between thè East and thè West, between thè ancient hi story ofthe Fashion House and its contemporary and global future. A romantic and sweet concept shaken by Constant interruptions, by discontinuity of style, unexpected colours, thè result of spending lots of time at thè historical archive of Via Womanin in Milan.
The iconic symbols return but without nostalgia or second thoughts. The past is blended into a current version of pure and direct lines that conceal surprises. A continuous, sophisticated reinterpretation of memories that acquire a contemporary vibe. A three-dimensional “haiku” And, even if everyone expects thè usuai tiger, this time it will be a new tiger. A different one.
The Krizia feline is back with a sharp style, printed, jacquard multicolour or lasered leather. It is concealed in fabrics with macro and micro flourishes, with fun camouflage effects. On blouse-sweaters, tank top dresses, laser cut leather and metal accessories, thè Symbol ofan era becomescolourful and pop. Fun and never dull.This isthe Krizia tiger.
And thè same applies to pleats, flounces and rouches, which become a petal on male jackets, a serrated biade on thè shoulder, an over-the-top handkerchief or a side fan tied with a ribbon. Precious details create a fusion between art and fashion, as in thè statuesque evening and cocktail dresses, embellished just like works of art. Waves are repeated and spread throughout thè collection, from thè shoulder strap of a shopping macro pochette in leather or fabric to fiat sabots.
The fabrics used are precious and innovative: wool threads with crisp silk, mohair with organza, stretch and pleats, thè result of cutting-edge technology and many special collaborations with ItaIian master craftsmen. Colours range from soft ice-cream and lake blue to light water blue and iridescent gold, connecting thè East and thè West.
