Hey you all!
I have so many different topics waiting in queue for me to tackle here, but I thought the logo could be a great first one to kick-start: it was born out of so much reflection and deep thinking, and it hides so many implicit meanings, that I thought not opening it up to the outside world would be quite a pity…also, the logo was one of the first elements I started working on, from the very moment I decided to move ahead with my “crazy” clothing brand initiative (little break here just to clarify: it felt crazy back then, especially given my super established and stable career in the financial industry and the fact i had never ever imagined myself pursuing any other venture that would not be in any way related to that).
