Harry Nuriev UNIqueFORM
19.11. – 19.11.20

In this digital event cohosted by Valentino, Spazio Maiocchi celebrates the launch of the UNIqueFORM boot—a unisex boot with a nod to the punk era—by inviting Russian, NY-based artist/designer Harry Nuriev to share his creative process and aesthetic obsessions.


In an editorial captured by KALEIDOSCOPE in Moscow through the lens of photographer Sasha Chaika, we see Nuriev as a contemporary flâneur, sporting the boot while he explores locations that speak to his early inspirations in Soviet architecture and Russian “bad taste.”


Chaika’s photo series provides the jumping-off point for a conversation between Nuriev and fellow Russian curator Anastasiia Fedorova, which takes place in a unique 3D environment especially designed by Nuriev for the occasion.


In times when our reality is a hybrid of real, virtual and augmented, Nuriev’s instantly recognisable style and bold use of color—most prominently his signature, saturated evocative blue—capture the essence of what we truly yearn for when we enter spaces: comfort and stimulation, clarity and calm, connection and a personal story.
