Italian artist Flavio Lucchini is known as the most influential character in fashion editing. He is the inventor of many important fashion magazines: Amica, Vogue Italia, L’Uomo Vogue, Donna, Mondo Uomo, Moda and more. In the 1990’s, inspired by his fashion related collaborations; Lucchini began to blur the lines between art and fashion – creating sculptural pieces made of iron, steel, brass, amongst other materials.
“I move from classicism and new pop, in a sort of direct line between Canova and Jeff Koons. I’m interested in mystery, the magic of fashion, to glorify it and at the same time to desecrate it”
