How is a shoe born?
Everything starts from an idea, a dream, a mission.
Then you need someone who can interpret and implement them.
So, it was for Revolver Requeen Venexia.
What you are about to read is the interview with the man who managed to translate and shape, with his mastery, the rebellious spirit of Beatrice Baldan: Fabio Panzeri.
Let’s get to know him together.
Italian designer specializing in fashion accessories, Fabio began his career in 1992 thanks to the collaboration with several successful brands for which he designed some of the most iconic pieces in their history.
His footprint? The experimental research and the innovative style.
“I have always managed to establish a new relationship of unity between man and objects”.
Sensitivity, ability to interpret even the most sophisticated styles, flexibility and a critical spirit have accompanied him in all his experiences, leading him to work within important realities.
“A strong message’s soul is born from the intention to open the mind”.
This could be the key concept that sum up Fabio’s experience with RRV; let’s have him tell it directly…
"The place where I am and the environment around me have a great influence on my creative process. To work, I usually look for familiar and tidy places, places that can make me feel at ease.
On the other hand, I must admit that the real creator of ideas is not so much the place, but the time. Enlightenment can come at any time and place. Once I have identified the idea, I can sit down and draw".
“The beauty of my work is that the inspiration can come from everything: the environment, a movie, a song, the nature’s colors, the moment o even only a word”.
“The most exciting moment was without a doubt when I saw the first prototype made. The moment I saw that the project was starting to come to life".
“The ROOM 397, one of the most representative and iconic models that then kicked off all the others. It is no coincidence that this is the one I am most fond of and that most reflects me".
"I have learned to appreciate the moments when I don't find inspiration and anything I try to put on paper seems obvious to me. I try to use those moments in which I feel trapped inside a labyrinth to distract myself, go out and find new incentives".
“Everyone and nobody.
It may seem like a contradictory answer, but in reality they were all the result of free and unforced thinking. Probably the most exciting will be the next..."
“One is ready and you will find out soon.
In the meantime, I'm already working on the next one which will be absolutely unexpected.
Think of the colors of nature, exotic and tropical, with all the vibrations that only she can give you... I can't say more!"
