Cooperation with Dolce & Gabbana
Working with Dolce & Gabban is very special for me. Without Light Blue, I wouldn't be who I am now. We have been cooperating for over 10 years. During this time, a lot has happened, but you know, people recognize me precisely because of all these posters and videos. So for me working with Light blue is a fateful story and the beginning of my success.
I like the orientation of this brand to the family, their respect for the traditions of their own country, this love for Italy in general and Sicily in particular. I am the same, but only in the context of the UK. So in this we are very, very similar.
I like that I can do many things at once. I don't have one job: I'm a model, I write for Vanity Fair, GQ, The Telegraph, I do charity work, I have my own clothing line. Probably, this is exactly what I like so much about all this. I have a wide choice.
He's very utilitarian. I always choose clothes for the occasion. On the other hand, it can be described as very British. I love the things of the English tailors who create rather traditional, classic versions.
No one has ever given me good or kind or valuable advice. Basically, everyone just told me not to climb here or there. For example, about the same fashion industry. I was told that I would never be able to earn as much as a girl, that I would not succeed with my own brand, that I would not be able to do this and that, but it’s better not to come close to that. All the time I had to prove to people that they were wrong in relation to me. However, this probably also has its own value.
About cities and countries
I love Italy, I love Florence. I live in London, I chose to live in London. I also love New York, it is very inspiring. And there are also places in the world that everyone loves, but I can't stand it. For example, Paris never recognized him and did not love him for some reason that I cannot even explain to myself. This does not mean that I do not like the French, I love them, but I do not like the city of Paris itself. It's rather strange, but true.
About your favorite music
My playlist is constantly changing, daily, hourly. Although he is, of course, very old school. But the truth is, there is a lot from Tony Bennett to Leon Bridges or Ray Lamontain. A lot of things in a row.
About favorite time of day
Sunset, always sunset.
