FORBES ARTICLE PART I: Artist Krista Kim And Lanvin Harness The Power Of Digital Technology To Create A More Humane World
FORBES ARTICLE PART II: Like A New Digital Rothko, Krista Kim Uses Technology To Create Meditative, Healing Art
Sharing the Techism philosophy with Olivier Lapidus, the maison’s womenswear artistic director and initiator of the first e-couture label, Kim intends for the new collection to express a vision of what it means to be human in the digital age. “I asked myself the question: what would Jeanne Lanvin have done?” Lapidus recounts. “I’m sure Mrs Lanvin, just as she had done in the 1920s, would have associated herself with the most contemporary, the most up-to-date and the most advanced things. She followed the work of Jean Dunand, Léon Bakst and Paul Iribe closely, so I said to myself that she would have liked Krista Kim a lot.
