>Alberto Annibali’s IntervieW by Myra
Since his childhood, Alberto Annibali was attracted to the world of fashion and the creativity involved in fine tailoring
He then decided to refine his diverse education and experience by beginning to work for major labels. After his collaboration for Ittierre S.p.a. for Versus-Gianni Versace e Gianfranco Ferrè Jeans, the high fashion phase of his career culminated with the start of a collaboration with Valentino in Rome for the men’s design studio. Additionally he worked as an independent fashion stylist .
In 2007 he created his own label and presented his first collection to the industry. The collection expresses the culmination of his experiences as he understood that it’s not only about fashion itself, but also includes a deep understanding of tailoring, fabrics, cultures and lifestyles
His experience, which has strong roots in Men’s fashion, compelled him to enter the world of Women’s fashion as a natural progression of everything he did.
The passion for Men’s wear is transformed into a passion for the female personality and clearly expresses the love that a woman has for a man, for his world and for his style.
The ALBERTOANNIBALI woman is a woman who travels around the world, growing through the exposure to influences from the various places she’s been, secure and proud of herself, yet passionate and fragile at the same time, in love with her man and his style, that she often uses as tool to seduce him.

Myra : Is a recognizable look important in the fashion world?
A.A. : Right now I if a woman wear skinny trousers and a padded shoulder blazer could be very 2011.
But to be sincere there is not a proper “fashion look”.
I mean, every woman want to look different from another, and for this reason there are many different looks.
Back in the days the look was one, total black.
Myra : Do you think that fashion blogs are important?
A.A. : Oh yes they are very important, they are the new way to communicate fashion, opinions, and some of them they are very interesting.
I read some of them everyday.
Myra : What is a must have for a fashion blog?
A.A. : Personally I believe they have to talk about people and not just about themselves( I like this I like that I ‘ve done this etc.)
Myra : Describe the Italian Customer…
A.A. : The north Italian costumer is very trendy, minimal and exclusive, very Milano style.
From Rome, Florence to the rest of south Italy, it is more about personal style, quality but for a fair price( if it is not labeled)
But please I do not want to look generalist!
We are basically very different from town to town.
Myra : 3 things that defines the ‘’Italian fashion world’’.
