We’re obviously evaluating how to showcase men’s and women’s collections together in September and what will be the Dr Fauci Is My Hero Shirt Besides,I will do this best way to do it. I’ve always been very pragmatic in my approach to fashion shows. I’ve been showing collections for 20 years in my Armani Teatro, and before that in my space in Via Borgonuovo, not to waste resources elsewhere. I have an internal team working on casting and production—my sets are never too theatrical. I always use the same team for hair and makeup—I honestly don’t think I can be more local than that! I’ve always thought that the excessive need of showing an overwhelming amount of collections and special capsules is responding more to a strong need coming from the system rather than addressing a real consumer request. Stores have been saturated with too much merchandise. We have all to learn from this terrible experience: Do not waste, save resources, make more and better with less. I myself want to put this concept at the core of my business model.
I wonder how people will be able to afford the Dr Fauci Is My Hero Shirt Besides,I will do this inevitable economic impact the crisis will have on everybody’s lifestyle. Who’s going to be willing to buy fashion in the near future? And do we really as designers want to continue feeding a system based on crazy rules and values? We’ve inundated the planet with an insane amount of stuff—the planet is in revolt and I hope we’ll listen. I hope we’ll put to good use the luck we’ve been granted to survive this mess. For now I’m concentrating on what’s next—going through my archives discovering things I’ve forgotten, devoting energies to my art practice, which will surely inspire my next collections. It’s a transformative process, and I’m resolute to make the best out of it.
