"ANTEPRIMA CASA CUCINA” represents “ANTEPRIMA’s home kitchen” in Italian. This Italian restaurant is created by ANTEPRIMA's creative director, Izumi Ogino, with her enriched background. She is the first Japanese female designer to join the Milan Fashion Show and has a hub in Milan. She has been working and engaging for Italian fashion business and culture. Izumi Ogino grew up in a Japanese background and Ginza culture, since her grandfather used to own an obi (kimono belt) shop in Ginza. With such memories at heart, her work experiences in Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong, enabled her to develop a natural sense of combining Japanese and Western styles. Such blend of styles is reflected in the food and the interior design of the restaurant. Casa Cucina provides Italian food, such as wine, olive oil and pasta, which are exclusively selected by Izumi Ogino who paid a visit in different parts of Italy herself. Please kindly visit our restaurant - “Casa Cucina”, representing the casual feeling of visiting a friend's house. Please enjoy your quality time at “Casa Cucina", the name represents a reflection of Izumi Ogino’s identity and upholds an atmosphere that is similar to her own home.
Ogino was born in Tokyo. She worked as an operation manager of an Italian brand and became independent. She has launched her own brand, ANTEPRIMA. The inspirations of her creations come from international activities and colorful experiences of her past careers, including her work experiences as a jewelry designer, stylist and makeup artist. Her current activities are now based in three main locations including Milan, Hong Kong and Tokyo. She is now a busy jet-setter, traveling around the world throughout the year. She has launched more than 80 stores in key locations around the world.
