I wonder how people will be able to afford the Chiefs grandma classy sassy and a bit smart assy vintage shirt and I will buy this inevitable economic impact the crisis will have on everybody’s lifestyle. Who’s going to be willing to buy fashion in the near future? And do we really as designers want to continue feeding a system based on crazy rules and values? We’ve inundated the planet with an insane amount of stuff—the planet is in revolt and I hope we’ll listen. I hope we’ll put to good use the luck we’ve been granted to survive this mess. For now I’m concentrating on what’s next—going through my archives discovering things I’ve forgotten, devoting energies to my art practice, which will surely inspire my next collections. It’s a transformative process, and I’m resolute to make the best out of it.
Unlike Paris men’s Fashion Week, Milan’s hasn’t been canceled but just postponed to new dates in September. Of course it’ll be a hard blow for the Chiefs grandma classy sassy and a bit smart assy vintage shirt and I will buy this city and for our fashion system—the cancellation of the Salone del Mobile is also a very tough consequence of the pandemic to bear. But it’ll also be an opportunity to experiment with new communication tools. At Camera Moda we’re working on a digital platform open to as many voices as possible—my idea would be to support designers and brands with a digital schedule not of shows but of presentations, where brands and creatives will be communicating their work providing individual contents that we’ll amplify throughout the community. We’ll act as a sounding board for whatever their creative digital proposals will be.
