How cool is the new Daniel Palillo’s collection? Big eyes wide opened, rib cages, punk skulls, distressed typo and large use of black and white… so f-ing HOT!
So hot that I couldn’t resist…I had to go and find Daniel and ask him a few questions about his vision and what inspires him…check out what he told me in this interview that screams FUN!!
Can you describe your latest SS11 collection and the inspiration behind it?
The main inspiration i guess was the Finnish band Leningrad Cowboys. I mixed that with some traditional halloween things.
Who wears Daniel Palillo? And how would you like to see your garments worn?
I wear Daniel Palillo. Rest I dont know but hopefully many people find it interesting and something they would like to wear.
How do you define style? And how would you describe your personal style?
People often ask me this and I have no idea. I just want to make clothes that I want to wear. I only wear clothes from my own collection.
If style could be a place would it be….?
A mix of Helsinki and Naples.
And if it was a person? Who’s your style icon?
The comic book guy from the Simpsons.
Who are your fantasy dinner party guests?
My closest friends.
What’s in your ipod?
Right now it is lot of old stuff. But in general from hip hop to metal.
Where do you live? What is an absolute must-do there?
I live in Helsinki. I would say Helsinki is the best in general hanging around.
Your last trip? And the next one?
My last trip was Paris fashion week, but during the fashion week I always feel tired and wanna have takeway dinners in hotel so thats boring. Right before that i did a motorcycle roadtrip with my friends. Driving around Europe that was pretty insane. Lot of things happened. My motorcycle went down in french country side. Good memories.
Next one I hope i will find time to go in london to visit my friends.
Any plans for future?
Never had any plans and hopefully never will. Living day by day.
Thank you Daniel!
