of Lola Pacchioni
Journalism, gastronomy, cinema; Lola Pacchioni has been involved in a wide variety of professions that have led her ‘naturally’ to fashion. “In each of those sectors in which I’ve been involved we find colour, image, transformation. Each provides an unparalleled experience, whether it’s eating a dish, immersing yourself in a film, or adorning yourself with a new fabric. These are exceptionally sensory - even carnal - experiences,” she explains.
Following a trip overseas, she returned with a new passion - silk - and an idea - to reinvent the silk square. “IKA was born from a desire to create; an itch that could not be ignored; a sudden impulse that constituted a plunge into the unknown,” she tells us. The result was a first collection that was simply sublime.
