Question For… Camilla Alibrandi

Does wearing a backless dress and heels (like you did here) while shooting a men’s show make you feel powerful?

 

It creates a visual connection between who I am and what the others see.  It makes me feel safe and secure to think that others may understand me better through the image I put forth. For me, it doesn’t depend on who I’m with or what I’m doing; dressing in a sophisticated and feminine way is something too natural for me to detach from.

Style Profile… Angelo Flaccavento

First job?

 

I customized backpacks in high school.  It began with mine, then everyone wanted one. They were quite garish; Disney meets Pollock meets splatter…

 

Current profession?

 

I consider myself a writer; I love words. I think fashion is a fantastic subject as it’s the most immediate, acute, and precise reflection of society. It keeps me excited, because it is constantly changing; the more fashion moves, the more my writing style evolves– a mutual feeding I truly enjoy. A book (already in the making) may be the next step in my career.

 

Who has influenced your journalistic style?

 

I’m a bookworm and spend many sleepless nights reading. I’m particularly fond of Agota Kristof‘s super dry prose, Italo Calvino‘s precise lightness, Giacomo Leopardi‘s grumpiness, and Carlo Emilio Gadda‘s verbal inventiveness. However, I discover new ideas every day, often in the most unexpected places.

 

How has your style evolved over the past 5 years?

 

My choices have become stricter, but my tailoring softer. I’ll be forty soon and have slowly entered a quiet phase, with a few exceptions.

 

Quietness is a state of mind; even my wildest choices, if you look closely, are classic and eminently sartorial– It’s the proportions that sometimes go bonkers.
