Q: when we ask you why you don’t have testimonials you are allways evasive. Can you tell us why?
A: I rather invest the money in the prototyping procedure and good leathers. Other than the fact that there are not many men I would like to have as testimonial of My bags
Q: You hate men?
A: No. I actually love men and Woman. I love human beigns. I think there are few with whom I share core values and those are so rare. Communication is about sharing an idea, a thought, beauty, sufferance, art. I find it hard to choose a testimonial with whom I share all of this.
Q: So you are Telling me that there is not a VIP or actor or sports man or Singer that you would name as a person that you could share a good Word for. And you would think…”He represents the beauty, intelligence, sacrifice, hope, poetry, substance and perfection I want to communicate with My bags” That is depressing for us men… You can’t name one single model, actor, singer, artist, street artist? No one?
A: Yes there is only one.
Q: Ah, finally! Who? Now I am so so curious.
A: Alessandro Gassman
A: Alessandro Gassman is beautiful inside out. He is clever, intelligent. Has substance bellow the surface. He doesnt live life with a mask. You can see it by the lines in his Face. They trace his suffarance. Life doesnt stay above him but penetrates his soul. He metabolizes happyness, suffarance around him in an extreme way. His heart is visible to naked Eye. I would choose him too because he is phisically perfect. He smiles with his stomach and he is used to cameras, photoshoots. He is an incredibke talented actor. He would know how to givet an interpretation of My work, of My bags, of their story, of what they represent. Of the sufferance in our territory and how rough it is to create à product like this in the actual fashion world today were garbage is produced with garbage, sold by garbage and becomes garbage after a few months. Then he is italian, down to earth, elegant, strong a built human beign. What I call a Hero. Men in My imagination when made the skull bags represented all this. Phisically and moraly strong. He makes me proud of beign italian. It happenes rarely now days.
Q: What do you mean by “sold by garbage”
A: We were talking about testimonials weren’t we? For me the value of a person is not on the amount of likes that person has on Facebook or about how many people follow that persons blog. Or followers on twitter some people don’t like or mind social media For me substance is in the talent of à human beign as an artist and the beauty of à good heart is shocking to me in à world were offending, accusing, hurting and using goes beyond all the rest. In Stockholm I asked one of My friends to show me which woman were beign used as testimonials of fashion brands. My friend showed the blogs of this persons. I almoust vomited. One was so utterly scary. I asked her age and it shocked me. So so Young allready with a deformed face by plastic surgery. Not a decent or poetic photo. Only vulgar exhibitions and bad words. Extreme exhibition of luxury made out of vulgarity. This is what I call garbage. It is and can’t be My mean of comunication. It represents the opposite.
Q: Can you tell us Who represents the “garbage” and opposite of Alessandro Gassman then in Italy as testimonial?
A: I can’t answer this question because I allready have enough issues with lawyers because I am outspoken. All My best friends and family members know WHO his is. I call him “The Parassite”. It’s best to share Alessandro Gassman than to speak about garbage.
