About the Brand

    KIOKU is a design project. It was born out of the energy of unique places, out of the emotions of our journeys, both real and dreamt. It found its truest expression in the personal aesthetic and artistic sensibility of Alessandro Cidda. KIOKU is a memory captured by a camera, a detail whose essence explodes into a labyrinthine spread of suggestions, enveloping all the senses as a garment to wear, a travelling companion to places we alone can explore. In dreams and, equally, in life. KIOKU is an homage to beauty, captured in a single detail and multiplied infinitely into a hypnotic composition to bewitch and enthral. KIOKU is a memory reflected in a silk weave, which bears testament to the timeless charm of a 5-millennium-old art. The essential proportions, pure volumes, and use of a precious material, namely silk, combined with strictly Italian craftsmanship constitute the heart of Kioku’s style. His collection offers nine kaleidoscopic patterns, each expertly married with clothes with a soft line, gently swaying and fluttering on the body with every moment. In other words, a sartorial poem opening the door to a fresh concept of beauty, at once modern and timeless.

Collection Inspiration

The journey as a memory, as nature, as artistic research. This is where a particular tension between art and nature takes root: Ipnotica first edition from Kioku. This series of “object-clothes”, born out of an alchemical reinterpretation of memories of travel captured by a camera, tells the story of an unexpected encounter between Japan and the Western American Parks. This inspiration, where reality blends into the dreamworld, gives life to hypnotic designs transposed onto silk twills from ancient silk factories in Como. The result? A sartorial poem consisting of nine kaleidoscopic patterns spread across twelve outfits, providing the possibility of over one hundred different combinations and allowing the wearer to play with endless interpretations. Here, there are no timings, constraints, or barriers. The essential proportions, pure volumes, and use of a precious material, namely silk, combined with strictly Italian craftsmanship constitute the heart of this project, which features clothes with a soft line that, underlying forms without defining them, gently sway and flutter on the body, following its movements as nature’s truest ideal of grace.
