Make Your Statement
Connecting with fans of our brand across the globe, we are in constant search of vibrant personalities to tell us a bit about who they are, and what statements do they make with Adia Kibur.
Where in the world are you? How did you end up there?
I currently live in Milan (Italy) but I grew up in a very small town near Mantova. My passion for fashion brought to Milan where I did my University studies and started working in the fashion world.
What is your favorite place to shop there?
I really love Antonia (great brands choice) and Antonioli (I love Rick Owens and Margiela masterpieces)
What do you do? What does it take to do what you do well?
I work in the fashion field in the Licensing & Special Projects Office in Bottega Veneta
What inspires and motivates you?
My passion for fashion, for beautiful things, I love discover new brands everyday, I love watching people around me, real street style (not always “fashion-people” style), travelling is also another way to get inspiration in my life.
If you had a time-machine what year would you shoot to and why?
I would like to come back just a few decades, I would like to live in 80s. I thinks 80s have been the years of change in fashion, in lifestyle, in music and in a lot of fields.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is very “Mine”, I love fashion but I am not must-have addicted, that is I love changing my style – sometimes rock, sometimes romantic, sometimes minimal – but in a coherent way. People/my friends always recognize my style. I also love vintage clothing and I try to mix and match branded apparel with vintage pieces!
What do you say to people who think fashion is a complete waste of time and money?
I totally disagree. Fashion is a way to express ourselves!
Which 3 songs on your device do you listen on constant repeat?
Sweet Home Alabama – any Beyoncè song when I want to get energy! – Marvin Gaye songs (I love all of them)
What fashion statement did you love when you were 15 that you wouldn’t be caught dead in now?
I really love punk clothes (like skinny jeans with very “high” and “important” boots that I will never be able to wear right now!
What statement does this Adia Kibur piece make about you?
It’s a perfect mix of contemporary design with classical material (white pearls). I have combine it with a total black Rick Owens mood and this necklace is like a “ray”of light.
