INTERVIEW

Equilibrium, Dynamism, Steadiness and Inspiration are the four ‘’rooms’’ of Canali Spring Summer 2019. When you think of each of these words, what do they mean to you personally?

Equilibrium to me means finding balance within. To be able to take and handle whatever life gives you. Dynamism means having energy and strength to deliver my best! Steadiness is being able to be stay on the right path. We get side tracked so much in life, steadiness allows us to focus. Inspiration: having hope!

Why do you think heritage is important?

Heritage is important because it has a root. You can trace it back to the beginning and see the fundamentals of how something began. It’s also important, because heritage shows that you’ve grown and learned to be where you are now. It tells a story.

What is the definition of ''casual'' for the modern-day man? In your opinion, what is the difference between formal and casual?

My definition of casual is very different from most guys. For me, it’s feeling comfortable and stylish on the easiest of days. Rather in trousers or denim, it’s worn on days to escape the stress of ''work''. The difference between formal and casual is structure. Casual can be more relaxed, laid back, while formal is structured and well put together.

When a new season begins, how do you go about choosing new additions for your wardrobe? What Spring Summer essentials will you be buying next?

When a new season begins I always change up my wardrobe with color. I pretty much wear the similar styles of articles, however you’ll find me adding color to change up my outfits. This SS, you’ll find me adding more florals and bolder colors. I also want to dab into sporty formals looks, where I pair sneakers with trousers.

What are the absolute musts when packing for a trip?

My absolute must for packing a trip is a light weight suit, sneakers and hair product. Lol. With this three things I can look my best, and not get tired if I need to walk.

Do you have any useful packing tips? (e.g. how do you pack a suit?)

Packing is honestly something I’m not fond of. Lol.. my wife recently bought me travel cubes where I put my clothes in according to outfit. It’s helped to organize my looks and create more space....for more clothes!!!

Do you have any tips on how to keep an impeccable look when traveling?

1. Give yourself time to rest on the first day. I always feel my best after I take one day off after being on a plane 10+hours. 2. Wear clothing that suits the season, but also think about how long you’ll be out each day. If traveling for leisure, days can get extremely long and tiresome. I would suggest dressing in a way that can carry you from day to night.

How do you pick your outfit in the morning? What do you think about when styling a look – like what accessories to wear, choosing which colors to put together, etc.?

I pick my outfits in the morning depending on how i feel and where I’m going. 9/10 times, I’m going to be more dressed up then the norm, but that’s how I feel comfortable. I treat my accessories the same way, but I do consider the activities of my day. So, you won’t find me wearing brogues on days when I’m walking 5+ miles or shopping all day.
