My name is Agnese, behind me a three-year degree in fashion design at Polimoda in Florence and several experiences in companies. My first job came right after graduation in a fashion archive, where I was lucky enough to be able to admire fabrics, designs, clothes and accessories from the very early 1950s to the present day on a daily basis. Thanks to the archive, I developed a huge interest in illustration and vintage, an interest that was consolidated during a period spent in America and later in London. The city stimulated me a great deal, I spent a lot of time in children’s museums, visited exhibitions and libraries almost every day, I cannot deﬁne how many children’s illustration books I bought during that time. I cultivated a passion for clothing and vintage by assiduously frequenting charity stores, stores and markets, especially in Brick Lane. I had clear ideas and knew that the world of children would be my path. So I left for Spain, to Seville, where I worked as an assistant designer in a children’s clothing company. I performed different tasks every day, from drawing to logistics, it was a very dynamic job. Once a week the company opened to the public, relating directly with customers gave me a way to train on the product in a comprehensive way. Back in Italy I felt it was the right time to try, throwing myself into an unknown path: thus APPI BIMBI was born.
THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?
APPI BIMBI is a combination of all the experiences I have had and my greatest passions: drawing and children, who are without a shadow of a doubt my greatest source of inspiration. When I can, I spend most of my time with them trying to extrapolate thoughts and opinions on every project I have in mind; I have a very high regard for their point of view.
Being with children gives me a strong charge and energy, I try my best to come up with products and ideas that are functional especially for them and fit into their world as best as I can. APPI BIMBI allows me to work on all stages of design, from fabric design to photo shoots, and this stimulates me a lot. Cinema and music have always been essential passions, what I draw from these two worlds spills over into the collections to create something contemporary, unusual and uncommon in children’s clothing. I like to narrate everything that is unfamiliar and at the same time traditional. When I travel my main attraction is always them: I try to understand how they live, what their habits are, what traditions, festivals, rituals they are most attached to. Through their ﬁgure I discover cultures, peoples and landscapes. Children are everything to me; I hope to be able to tell their stories for a long time to come and to continue to have fun with them as I do now. I am inspired by everything I do not know and by the path that leads me to discovery.
WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?
Follow the ﬂlow of ideas, not being afraid of change. Staying true to oneself by trying to broaden views, experimenting by indulging the innermost nature of one’s curiosities, new interests. Surrender to emotions by trying to make each project useful, signiﬁcant and important to us and what we are doing. Telling about ourselves and our vision through what we love to do, pursuing the freedom of choice. Stopping, when needed, to sow, cultivate and restart.
