All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
In our daily life we are accustomed to think and act on the basis of mechanisms that automate our behaviors. We must do in one way rather than another because that action and that thinking follow established patterns. The dreamers, on the other hand, move in the nuances of life, where colors degrade and transform, where everything is indefinite and for this reason possible, glimpsing distant and improbable opportunities. In this sense, who does not dream surrenders to accept that life is all given and for this reason agrees to live it as it is.
Simone Racioppo is a dreamer of those who always gives us the strength to imagine a different future, to get excited like few. His motto is that “passion never betrays you” and in this we find summarized all his philosophy based on the heart, feelings and will power that allows you to move forward despite the thousand adversities. After the great success during the Dubai Fashion Week and having been contacted directly by the Royal family who commissioned an ad hoc line, Racioppo was chosen by the director Carlo Fusco to dress the actors Ieva Lykos (already protagonist of international films alongside Bruce Davison Tom Sizemor and Maia Morgenstern) and Eric Roberts, brother of Julia Roberts, who has two Golden Globe nominations and an Oscar in his career. We are talking about the film Dirty Fears produced by Lykos Film and in distribution in America and Europe in the coming months. Currently on the set for the launch of his new collection of luxury accessories for men flanked by Sasha Donatelli, model and influencer, and Daniele Pompili, model and fixed presence of the transmissions of Barbara D’Urso. In the future still engaged in the world of cinema with the director Giuseppe Racioppi.
Can you tell us more about this new collection of men’s accessories?
This is a project I’ve been working on for a few months, you know I’m always fascinated by new challenges. It is a line of leather accessories that we will present next year in Ibiza in an event that we are precisely defining these days. This is another aspect of my creative being that I have put aside for some to devote myself full time to women’s collections and that I have now felt the need to pull out.
Very nice clothes that we see in the advertising campaign curated by Jessica Mazzone who is currently following your brand. What are the features that we find in this line of clothes? Was there any particular source of inspiration?
This is a new “luxury” collection that next year will be the protagonist again in the Arab countries. It is a very sophisticated, very precious, line made with refined hand-embroidered lace embellished with Swarovski crystals. These hand-embroidered lace is a little bit my signature, my stylistic signature that comes together in this particular case with new volumes in a new experiment that also includes something of mine, something more intimate and personal that finds in this new collection a new form.
How do you find yourself working for the world of international cinema? Is this an area in which we will often find you working in the future?
I am always interested in projects with an international dimension. I am working on them even now but for luck I prefer not to anticipate anything!!!
