To the Max
Max Kibardin is back on the New York circuit. The designer hosted a cocktail event Wednesday at the Wave Atelier showroom to fête his fall ’12 collection, replete with rich velvet styles including penny loafers for men and platform sandals for women. Kibardin, who also was named creative director for Bruno Magli at the end of 2011, said he was happy to be in New York, despite the fact that his schedule has verged on overwhelming. “Do you even recognize me?” the designer joked. “I have aged years since you last saw me.” Besides putting the final touches on his own line, Kibardin has been tasked with overseeing the relaunch of the Bruno Magli brand, which will be revealed in Milan during fashion week there. “I am overseeing the updated corporate identity and branding, the new showroom, bags, leather goods and the shoes,” said Kibardin, who tapped into the company’s archives before adding his own point of view to the new footwear offering, which includes a whopping 260 styles for women and 150 for men.
