What brings you back to Pitti? What is the link with this fair and why is it important?
Pitti is always a very important moment. It is an internationally famous fashion show, a chance to showcase your work, process or project. This link started many years ago, when I was still on my first collection. I remember sending some garments to the Pitti board and since then I have always been chosen by this marvellous body of people that believes in projects by youngsters, supporting us and giving us room for visibility and above all, space to grow.
Can you briefly tell us about the collection that you will be presenting at the 84th Pitti Immagine Uomo, as part of the Pitti W Precollection? 
This collection reflects on the need to give clothing back its function, use and identity, without however neglecting the creativity that enhances its personality.
