it was 1969 during a Beatrix® swimwear photo-shoot when the camera flash jammed. Two models, a man and a woman sitting back-to-back, were immortalized against the light, becoming the inspiration for the iconic Omini Logo.
Kappa celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Iconic Omini Logo with Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft, curated by Neville Wakefield at Art Basel Miami. Through 50 different interactions, couples, sat back-to-back moving in synchrony, reinterpreted the trademark with a minimal-style live performance.
