today (at the age of 92!) ottavio missoni passed away.
I have had the pleasure and the honour of photographing him for vogue germany a few years ago, at his house, with his wife rosita.
in a world of assholes full of themselves, ottavio, for the little time I was able to get to know him on that beautiful day, he was extremely kind, friendly and present.
for this very reason I enjoyed taking this picture while he cheers the photographer/spectator, as to invite him to his table, like a friend.
in the fashion world I feel like there are two very distinct worlds which are far apart from each other: the one about fashion and the one about style.
there are fashion photographers and style photographers.
there are designers who design fashion and designers who design style.
there are many people who follow trends and other people who have style.
I cannot stand fashion but at the same time I love style.
I found that ottavio missoni was a person with great style! RIP
