We've been coveting Kinder's designs since he launched his eponymous label Kinder Aggugini four season's ago. So the news that he is to become one of the hottest names on next season's fashion week schedule is music to our ears.
The designer's real name is Paolo but is known to everyone as Kinder, which is why he chose Kinder Aggugini as the name for his label, which he has been showing during Paris fashion week for two years. His first collection was, in his own words, inspired by what might happen if Coco Chanel married Sid Vicious. This then set the tone for his unique style of polished rock-chick chic.
Four collections later and with much international praise for the man who was previous head designer at Versace, as well as having worked for Calvin Klein, Costume National, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and John Galliano, and he's going to have his own show.
