In a shocking and extremely sad statement on Friday, London cult brand 16Arlington stated that co-founder Federica Cavenati-also known as Kikka-died last month “after a brief and sudden illness.” Her mother, father and brother, who was only 28 years old, and her life partner, 16-year-old Arlington co-founder Marco Capaldo (Marco Capaldo) survived.
The family stated that the couple “founded a business that redefines the charm of London” and in the process proved to be a celebrity’s favorite. Cavenati was born and raised in Italy, but spent her teenage years in Vienna before moving to the UK and studied fashion design at Istituto Marangoni in London.
She met Capaldo by chance the night before her first speech, and they were inseparable personally and professionally. The 16Arlington brand was founded in 2017, named after their first near-abandoned shared apartment in Arlington Street, London.
Cavenati is both the co-founder of the brand and the muse of the brand. The family issued a statement on Friday stating that her approach to “designing for the good time” is that the brand “rises quickly.” Core.
It also stated that “the word’special’ does not feel enough to attribute to Kikka’s optimism, enthusiasm and kindness, but it is undoubtedly the most direct way to capture her. Kikka is a white light; an unmistakable energy and the most encouraging, Most loyal friend.
16 Arlington Studio will no longer ring her evil laughter and endless desire for creativity, which is a tragic loss for everyone who is lucky enough to know her.” It added that Marco Capaldo will “show an invisible series in her name in February 2022.”
