Andrea Zanola, Brescia, born in 1994. I have always been passionate about fashion, design and art, and after studying in Milan, Rome and one of the world’s largest fashion archives (Modateca Deanna), I found in knitwear the best way to express my creativity. Knitwear has no limits, perhaps the only limit is the imagination. I have been lucky enough to meet and work for some very interesting realities, including knitwear factories and a Florentine fashion house. During the lockdown, in May 2020, I decided to start a personal circular economy project in the field of sustainable knitwear, Patchouli Studio.
THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?
Ethical, gender fluid and handmade. Patchouli Studio is the expression of these three concepts, developed through the language of knitwear.
Language that is more intimate and familiar to me, which allows me to construct a possible universe in each garment. Patchouli Studio identifies factories that produce large quantities of yarn and fabric, selects pieces that would be thrown away because they are no longer sufficient to go into production. Each piece is necessarily handmade. Often it is made to order, personalised, designed according to the commissioner’s idea. Other times, most of them are the result of my own creativity.
WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?
My lucid pills? My vademecum for sanity includes: What doesn’t choke gets fat. How equal all these different.
