I love silk! SS/21 silk campaign for superleggero Photo: Antonello Tabarelli de Fatis
A year has passed since the Coronavirus exploded in Europe. Following those first days of fear and disbelief, it occurred to us that if we wished settle back to work we would have to protect ourselves and those close to us.While scientists were striving to find drugs to fight the virus, we were looking for a way to manage it in everyday life in the short term.Natural curiosity led us to look at the 1920s pandemic, and to discover how the masks of that time were worn with such elegance and simplicity! Ninety years on, our quest and love for natural fabrics offered the solution.

The new silk carré aspen ’86 fresh designed for the Italian brand superleggero is my personal tribute to the Coors Classic, a race held in North America between 1975 and 1988.The race was considered the fourth biggest stage race on the world cycling calendar after the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta.From a 3-day of racing in Colorado in the first years, the race grew to 2 weeks with stages across Nevada, Colorado, California, many of them criterium races or time trials like the time-trial hill climb up to San Francisco’s famous Telegraph Hill.
When in 2019 I designed for the Italian brand superleggero the ski hood baroudeur, I could not imagine this will be the future! Stay warm, stay chic! Photo: Antonello Tabarelli de Fatis
