A day with… the new performer Emiliano Rinaldi
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
I’m having fun. The only job I could be doing, the designer in his purest form.
FIRST THOUGHT OF THE DAY/THE LAST OF THE DAY:
Breakfast is fuel! The last one: Tomorrow what do I have to do? My goals? Eyes ahead towards future without looking back. Enthusiasm is the motor, emotion the constant.
BEING FAMOUS OR BEING RICH?
Famous of course.
NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT?
Without a thought in my head, something to do, a problem to solve.
YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH TECHNOLOGY?
Unfortunately still very elementary, luckily my co-workers interact to make Emiliano Rinaldi become also an avantgarde brand what can I say …?
My dream is that one day (not too far away) it will be them to teach me the “trade secrets”.
DO YOU BUY ONLINE?
Yes, for the moment only basic necessities. Flight tickets, music. Clothes I just can’t, I need to breath and touch what represents me in front of others.
WHERE DO YOU START YOUR RESEARCH?
It starts with me, my dreams, my desires. I’m not under the influence of the outside world, the research is within myself.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM THE FUTURE:
My first goal is happiness for me and my family. I hope to leave nice memories for Evita and Renato (ed. his twins).
FASHION ADDICTED OR STYLISH?
Stylish, if style is intended as an attitude, a way of being. Something where just dressing is too simplistic and the personalities, like the ones I’m dressing, would feel too restricted.
YOUR FAVOURITE ON-LINE STORE?
HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTER WHO IS ON NEXT?
It was a double victory for me. The birth of my twins the day before, and nomination as the winner after, together gave me violently beautiful emotions.
TWO WORDS TO SEND ME HOME?
What an effort!
See you soon Alessia!
EMILIANO RINALDI, one of the most shining talents, present at the 81st edition of Pitti Immagine with a collection full of memories of an Italy that these days seems so far away. The heaviness of Tuscan fabrics in warm colors: honey, caramel and the green of the chiantishire.
Light fabrics developed insolid colors as well as in elaborated jacquards. A palette that brings us back to the roots and the world of Emiliano, his love for horses. His clothes have a strong presence of Tuscan purity, the wearability of a cosmopolitan man and the refinement of a dandy, he presents a collection that is rich and balanced, sophisticated and easy.
