The Modern Elegance of the Kocchiu Brothers Curated by: KK
"...We grew up in Ilo, a port in Peru's southern coast. We weren't fishermen...but our experiences by the sea have had a decided influence in our lives. They are present in our designs. I think that what stands out from our collections is the fantasy inherent in every design. There are some recognizable influences in our collections, like pre-Inca drawings with their unique figures and geometric forms like the 'waves with stairs' like I like to call them. When I was studying I developed a sense of artistic freedom, where I give free reign to my imagination without being tied to convention. I am also influenced by the Europeans' aesthetic minimalism, and the third factor in my designs is everything that has to do with the sea, warm memories from childhood."
