What else are you influenced by?
Being Italian and being a craftsman I have always been fascinated by tradition and the art of cutting. As a young designer, I believe that you have to deal with the past to get contemporary. I have a large pool of patterns for men’s clothing, from old Florentine tailors, that I use for my ideas.
Where do you see yourself and your label 5 years from now? Any big goals you still want to achieve – or maybe even THE one big perfect dream for the future?
I have grown both as a designer and as a person over the last 5 years and now I understand more and more what I am doing and what I’m gonna do with my brand. Every season I work on improving what I do, from product to communication. Being a craftsman, I now want to focus more on e-commerce to be closer to my customers, just like the tailor used to be.
What are the first 3 things you will do when the whole Corona situation is „over“?
I will definitely go back to Florence where I was born and raised, to embrace my family who I have not seen since January (I live in Milan). I don’t think the other two are so important!
Famous last words?
Today they reopen the gyms… and I woke up with a back pain.
