Enter the Vivacious World of Andrea Pompilio, Canali’s New Creative Consultant for SS15
“I live and design for the moment we are living in now,” says designer Andrea Pompilio—a menswear force in his own right and latest recruit from Canali‘s creative team—in a new video for the luxury brand’s 200 steps interview series. Created as a companion to Pompilio’s debut capsule collection for the Italian house, the short film welds together the known heritage of Canali and the newfound inspiration from the designer’s clever—and sometimes kooky—observations. From people watching at airports to hunting through vintage cinema, Pompilio’s translation of the subtle gestures of the everyday is what makes his vision so unique. With a whit similar to Agnès Varda and creatively-sophisticated video techniques that only a brand like Canali could produce, the short film is very much like a great introduction at a party—when you meet someone so thrilling for the first time and immediately know that the two of you are going to be the best of friends.
