“Alessandro and I are twins. I am much older, but I found someone who is the same as me: who loves beauty, collect things, who have “the eyes of the magpies”. I am very glad that he came into my life. His clothes filled my home with happiness.”
The friendship between Alessandro and the singer began with the arrival of the first in the fashion house as the creative director. Michele grew up on the music of Elton John and always admired his bold images. “When you work in fashion, you always come across the photos of Elton and David Bowie from the 70’s: the brightest guys in the world. He strongly influenced my work, I’m a big fan of that era. Elton was the biggest dream that came true, and I did not even plan it, “says Alessandro Michele.
