When Luigi Lardini met Nick Wooster

Luigi Lardini and Nick Wooster, the designers behind the awaited collection that will be presented today at Pitti Uomo, joined a head to head interview revealing some unknown aspects of their personalities.

Name?
Nick Wooster.
Luigi Lardini.

What do you drink first in the morning?
N.W. Iced coffe.
L.L. Cappuccino.

Your favorite color?
N.W. Grey.

L.L. White, like my soul.

Your favorite film?
N.W. Auntie Mame.

L.L. Pretty Woman, an almost perfect dream comes true.



And book?
N.W. Metropolitan Life by Fran Lebowitz.
L.L. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm.

Finally, a song?
N.W. My Way by Frank Sinatra.
L.L. Io e Tu by Gino Paoli.

Luxury is?
N.W. Time.

L.L. I agree with Nick. Time’s the luxury of life.

America is? Italy is?
N.W. My home.
L.L. My heart.

When was your passion for fashion born?
N.W. Already by the age of 5 I had my own personal taste about how one should dress. I remember that the t-shirts were always too big and it was impossible for my mother to buy something for me. At 15 I began to feel this passion for fashion, so I went to work in a shop, but I didn’t yet know what my path was going to be.
L.L. I believe that I was born with fashion. Some people are born with a veil, or caul, well I was born with a jacket! It’s something I’ve always felt. At the age of 6 I asked my mother if I could have a Prince-of-Wales check suit.

Style is?
N.W. For me style is like the air: it’s just there, difficult to define. I compare it to taste, you don’t know if it’s right or wrong until you try it.

L.L. Yes, style is undefinable. It’s the coming together of simple things. It represents authenticity: from the little accessories to the outerwear that all together build style.

A word to describe Luigi’s/Nick’s style?
N.W. Daring.
L.L. Innovative.

What should never be missing in a wardrobe?
N.W. Everything is indispensable, but one should never be without a jacket.
L.L. The jacket is essential.

What would you pilfer from the other’s wardrobe?
N.W. His 007. And also his field jackets.
L.L. His exclusive jackets.

How two style icons like you feel like when going around together?
N.W. It’s great fun.
L.L. Yes, enormous fun. The last time we were in Florence we couldn’t move. Everyone wanted a photo or talk to Nick. Next time I’m going to put a black bag on his head.

When did you realised that Lardini and Wooster were attuned?
N.W. Immediately, the very first time that I visited their factory in Filottrano I felt totally welcome.
L.L. Instantly. Through the passion for fashion. I could express it as "love at first sight".
