Pinko is a well known Italian fashion brand! Founded in the 1980’s by Pietro Negra and Cristina Rubini, Pinko claims to owe it’s success to brand awareness and value. True but what Pinko is really good at is edgy style for chic trendy women! I love the freshness of the designs combined with quality and value for money! The Made in Italy Pinko has more than 800 shops worldwide, including the flagship stores in London, Paris and Milan, and a turnover of 148 million Euros in 2008.
What attracted my attention to their fashion looks were the unorthodox color combinations, the fun layering concepts and the rock chic aspect of their Italian fashion. All fashionistas can definitely grab an idea or two from this unique brand and learn how to combine their clothing and jewelry pieces into unbelievable outfits with taste.
Paris Fashion Week: Pinko ‘Uniqueness’ Event
Alessandra Facchinetti and Pietro Negra’s collaborative debut of Uniqueness, a ready-to-wear line launched in Paris.
Pinko presented their s/s 2012 collection ‘Uniqueness‘ designed by Alessandra Facchinetti, in the Musée Jeu de Paume, a place which matched the collection perfectly. The thing I loved about Uniqueness : it is season-less. Alessandra Facchinetti sure knows what she’s doing and she’s very talented!
Facchinetti, born in 1972, began her career in 1994 as artistic coordinator for Prada, working on the menswear and womenswear at Miu Miu for seven years. In 2000, Facchinetti was named design director of prèt-a-porter collections at Gucci before becoming Tom Ford’s successor as creative director at Gucci in 2004. “I’m excited to have the chance to work on such an innovative and unconventional project,” said Facchinetti in a release.
The collaboration with Mark Fast is part of a new fashion project to work with talented young designers on the creation of experimental collections which combine creativity with business sense.
I love this young-thinking Italian brand!!!
Fast is the latest in a band of London-based designers who are injecting a note of ‘stile inglese’ into the traditional heart of Milan Fashion.
