Ennio Capasa, designer:
Feeling low, feeling a hero, wishing for a change. This is today’s state of mind.
Coming out from the excess of the previous decade, we are searching for meaningful values in an era of contradictions, as David Bowie did between 1977 and 1979. He moved to Berlin where he transformed and worked on three incredible albums: Low, Heroes, and Lodger. He inspired me for this collection as he did many times in my career. Knowing that “we can be heroes for ever and ever”!
