Milan, for me, is a city of discovery. You can find some amazing gardens behind some great houses; I also love finding beautiful galleries and incredible shops, but you have to explore. And the food is amazing.
Brazil is not what you see but what you feel. Once you spend time here - a week, two weeks - you get in the vibe. It's really intoxicating.
I never liked sleeping; I always think I am missing something.
People don't really go to museums in Rio. I shouldn't say it's not sophisticated, but, you know, they go to the beach.
I'm so not interested in gossip. It just gives me the creeps. I love the work; I love what I do. If somebody sends me an interview that has any connotation of something that's not interesting or genuine, I'm not interested. I really detach myself from it.
When I say art influences me, which it does, it's not at all in a literal form. You go and see exhibitions or collections or meet an artist. It's all a compilation. Every moment, at all times, all this information. Then all this information disappears, and it shows up later in the process.
You think 24-7 when you're a creative person. And I find pleasure in everything - if I'm in a flea market, I'm there on my downtime, but I'm also there searching for the collection. I don't separate the two.
Each season I strive to design a forward-thinking and effortless collection with a very clean minimalist aesthetic.
I hope the average woman feels she needs practicality but with a little bit of fantasy. Otherwise, it's just not fashion.
My parents had a factory, so I was linked to the textile and fashion industry.
I cannot live without art: it excites me, it challenges me, and it leads me to the next thing.
I drape a lot. I cut. I have to touch. For me, it's almost impossible to start without that.
I have no tolerance for boredom. I spend so many hours in the office, and I still love it.
I just hate people who are lazy. To be on my team, you have to have energy and a sense of wanting to learn. That really excites me.
I'm inspired by many things, from landscapes to textiles. Art and architecture always influence my design process.
