This post marks my last day in Europe, for a while, i finally graduated as a shoe maker and well Pitti Uomo was the only thing that held me back this long. While most were there to peacock, i was handing out my resume and portfolio, looking for future employers in the sportswear industray.
Now i am enroute to china to start interning at a shoe manufacturing factory as a product engineer and industrial designer. I had bigger goals for the beginning of this year i didn’t quite hit, so don’t congratulate me.
In all honestly i am going to be paid sweat shop wages and be giving away my intellectual property for free in the name of experience. Nonetheless, where you start doesn’t determine where you are going. The future is what i make it.

Not a big fan of backpacks but when you have to lug around a parka, it’s very handy. These pants are by Uniform For The Dedicated, got them as the perfect winter gift to my self.

Went down to luisaviaroma (the store you won’t find and fuck up hopefully) to get some new winter gear I will be showing soon. Since it’s a Saturday I went super casual with a knit hoody, biker jacket and running shoes.
Loosing myself in grey and black this month. I find it ironic that Christmas colors are so bright but the atmosphere is so gloom this time of the year. No matter how many Christmas songs you play, snow is a depressing tool of the anti Christ to me. When has there ever been a sad person on a sunny island? Never. So let’s put that in perspective before jingling away.

Currently in Texas for a week, it was a surprisingly short 15 hour flight from Italy. I haven’t been in the states since I graduated 3 years ago. Regardless it is my first time in this state and city. Houston has a very metropolitan and historic atmosphere, my favorite place so far as been the museum of modern and fine art.
