As Creative Director of ANTEPRIMA, Izumi Ogino draws design inspirations from her passion of globetrotting and different contemporary art forms. Apart from fusing art elements in designs and devoted to support art industry as always, she shares this art passion to everyone by promoting various young upcoming artists via collaborations, as well as annual art event which takes place in our Milan flagship during Milan Salone.
During the exploration of SS20 Havana-themed collection, the vibrant yet unconventional artworks from upcoming Lithuanian illustrator Kissi Ussuki which channels same modern women ideal as ANTEPRIMA, have led to this Art-meets-Fashion collaboration.
於世界各地旅途中遇到不同的文化場景，以及對當代藝術的熱愛是ANTEPRIMA創意總監荻野泉 (Izumi Ogino) 重要的靈感之源。除了於設計中滲入相關元素，Izumi Ogino亦致力支持及推廣各地藝術創作，身體力行發掘不同新進藝術家，更於每年米蘭設計週期間在品牌米蘭旗艦店舉辦展覽，讓更多人認識他們。
在創作以「HAVANA」為設計主題的2020春夏系列期間，Izumi Ogino從立陶宛新進插畫家Kissi Ussuki之超現實主義插畫中找到共鳴，與ANTEPRIMA傳達同一份對現代女性的理想形象，因此促成了這次藝術與時尚的跨界聯乘合作。
