W magazine recently did an article on the revival of Krizia's micro pleated, metallic dresses from the 1980s as a dominant motif on the spring runways, in particularly at Dries van Noten and Lanvin (in 2000 Alber Elbaz was hired and then soon fired by Mariuccia Mandelli, the notoriously volatile founder of Krizia, and it caused quite the scandal at the time).
But where there is fashion, there is drama and at Krizia there was drama in the dresses.
