How did you start your career?
I’m from the north of Italy and then I moved to Milan where I went to university. I started working with magazines. After 12 years in Milan, I moved to London where I worked at a magazine. Six years ago, I met Dua, and we started working together on a project. Dua is actually the first celebrity I worked with.
Where do you shop?
There are few places in London that I really love. One is Aro Archive, where it has ’90s and ’00s Yohji Yamamoto and Raf Simons. Another store is Machine-A, which has a broad selection. And Dover Street Market, which is amazing. I have a very strong obsession with Prada. I have pieces from old collections and I keep wearing them because every day I really love them. Then I go on Vestiaire sometimes. I buy random pieces from Miu Miu’s old collections. I have to say, my boyfriend is good at finding clothes.
What are your must-have pieces?
I love Versace silk shirts. I wear them all year and every moment of my life basically. Then I love my Prada nylon jacket. It has always been part of my wardrobe. Also, I couldn’t be without my chunky, big shoes with a beautiful platform as well, like Derby shoes. I keep wearing the Comme des Garçons [pair].
What was your first big fashion big purchase?
During the ’90s, I remember where I bought this Helmut Lang denim jacket and a matching denim trouser. It was amazing. I still have that jacket actually in my wardrobe.
What smaller labels and designers are you into recently?
ERL, Coomes, Parnell, Youths in Balaclavas, Nao Serati, and Gypsy Sport.
