Daniel’s Fiorucci fate
This year has seen Daniel take on a new role as the artistic director of menswear at Fiorucci, the iconic Italian brand started way back in 1967.
Daniel spoke to GQ about the direction he wants to take Fiorucci. He said:
I’m hoping to pay homage to the history of the brand, but to write its next chapter, taking it to a new place and establishing what Fiorucci is for 2020, while still retaining the sexy, hedonistic spirit of the brand in the Seventies and Eighties.
And from the looks of his first-ever Fiorucci Autumn/Winter 2020 collection which he previewed on GQ, Daniel’s designs are looking stronger and better than ever!
