Interviews -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Krisztina Reisini a British citizen, of Hungarian heritage, has lived between London, Paris, Milan and New York: All commenced with marketing and photography moving into interior design through which she entered the world of high fashion. Fascinated by the personalities of Diana Vreeland, first director of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue America and the unforgettable Josephine Baker the soubrette of the Paradis Latin, her inspirations are the great Parisian fashion designers, the cinema post WW11. The Hollywood stylist Edit Head and the great photographers Lillian Bassman, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn who celebrated the creative genius of Balenciaga, Givenchy, Christian Dior and Schiaparelli have all interested the collection. The passion for hats comes from an innate "Tete A Chapeau". Creating head wear for a private international clientele has given her the desire to increase her circle of "collectors" offering a touch glamour and color for those dare to celebrate their uniqueness. Volutes, pleats and flounces of fabric made by hand without a pattern, just following her own stylistic vision, with a particular sensitivity to the codes of glamour, elegance and exclusivity. Kreisicouture signifies "one of a kind" A line of headpieces created in her Milan atelier: each piece is unique, entirely hand made by a process of pure free expression, fixed and cloncluded with the touch of master craftsmen who work with the designer. Hats that are "objets d'art".

The winter season of KREISICOUTURE confirms the vision of uniqueness and exclusivity of the designer Krisztina Reisini, who through the unmistakable and imaginative balance between craftsmanship and glamour, proposes a new series of headpieces with a high stylish and visual impact.

A collection of “objects of art”, hovering between couture and modern nonchalance, the result of a continuous research of materials and colors, which is enriched interpreting the cold of the winter months together with models inspired by historical female icons from the cinema and old Disney cartoons.

Among the new proposals stands the Faye beret, declined in several versions, ranging from padded velvet, to faux leather with printed crocodile or python effects, but also decor stripes of grosgrain and light feathers that reflect the same mix of elegance and audacity of Faye Dunaway in “Bonnie & Clyde”, or Mia, a cloche tribute to Mia Farrow in “The Great Gatsby”, convertible in new ways, thanks to the practical flexibility of ever so soft vintage “San Carlo” offered in a limited edition of felt in the shades of royal reds, burgundy, turquoise and acid green. The author of the novel “Out of Africa” suggests the model Blixen, a wide-brimmed black volume in lapin felt, adorned with a charming rooster feather crown in orange shades.

The new series is enriched with the shapes dedicated to trendy customers, such as the aviator hat Amelia, in faux leather or ecosuede with folding visor and its small shiny golden metal buckle and the classically modern Twiggy model, with a wide grosgrain band in the cruise colors blue/white/red.

Pooka is instead characterized by scattered punctures seemingly random, through a game of buttoning of precious twin cufflinks, that allow to transform the continuous line, a primary concept that also appears in Happy, made of rabbit fur felt, in alabaster white or black, with cheerful messages “Don’t worry” and “Be happy”, written on the combined links.

Among the continuing proposals the iconic volumes of the giant padded bearskin Airbag, which is proposed for this season in a crochet flannel, ice white, or in dark brown leather with snakeskin printed fabric with reversible interior; the high cuff Nolita, woven with threads of wool and vintage inserts, ecosuede and animated pied-depoule and Vichy graphics, the Sacchetto hood, closed with a top node and presented in soft velvet, mohair, tartan or pied-de-poule tweed and finally the inside-out Tallin, with side flaps, presented in solid color mohair or natural sheepskin.

The green perspective of the season brings Krisztina Reisini to revisit the previously proposed silhouette in fine mink or fox, through eco-friendly materials, such as faux leather or faux mink, as in the reversible tubular Ciuffo and the maxi Rasta beret, with printed satin interior and vintage multicolor geometry, come back in the big hood Magdi with a small internal hook that allows a combination of reversible closures front and back .

The collection is finally completed by a capsule of real “jewels for the head” inspired by the classic circles, but enhanced by applications and details that make each piece as a gem, evoking both a sense of irony and playful names taken from the world of cartoons of Walt Disney. Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Cruella and Adeline are the latest must-have of the winter season: headbands with romantic ruffles of tulle, adorned with fine, long, luxurious feathers and macro bows network, woven with coloured velvet polka dots or printed velvet with crocodile effect.
