(English ver. below)

為什麼想你想當模特兒?

我喜歡當模特兒是因為每一天都是不一樣的日子。我的工作給了我不可思議的機會,它帶我去一些我沒有機會去過的美麗景點。我喜歡在工作場合上認識新朋友,但同時,這些面孔在這麼多年後就成為我常見到的人而且後來也成為了我的朋友。

你怎麼看待時尚?

時尚對我而言是一種表達自己並反映自己個性的方式。隨著時間的推移和時尚的變化,你的衣櫥里永遠不會有足夠的經典服裝。

哪一個工作過的品牌你最喜歡呢?

這是一個棘手的問題,因為很難選擇一個特定的品牌。不過我可以說,與年輕時相比,我更喜歡我現在所處的工作類型。和過去相比,我現在有有更多的機會為奢侈品牌工作,我真的很喜歡這樣,因為大部分時間這些這些品牌都會選在美麗的地方和令人驚嘆的場景拍攝。

你認為西方時尚和亞洲時尚有什麼不同嗎?

在我看來,亞洲和西方時尚的主要區別在於(或者至少是)西方人更渴望“流行” 而亞洲人則是更專注在傳統上。但是,我確實認為這些年來事情發生了巨大的變化,社交媒體的影響力使得西方和亞洲時尚更加緊密。

保持身體健康的秘訣是什麼?

保持身體健康的關鍵是“一致性”。保持一致性意味著盡可能在每天有著最低限度的努力運動和補充良好的營養。但重要的是要明白,你不需要一週運動7天,而且你的生活也不需要嚴格控制飲食,因為你不可以永遠都這樣做,從長遠來看也不會有作用。相反地,首先找到一個你喜歡的運動方式,這會對你很有效,畢竟你永遠不會堅持任何無聊或不適合你的事情;而且你還需要對你的飲食做一些必要的改變,但再一次,不要追求100%完美。試圖保持完美是不可能的,也行不通的。

你可以去餐廳吃飯,你可以吃一塊蛋糕,你可以喝一杯酒。因為關鍵在於每天做出正確的選擇,比如在你的飯菜中加入更多的蔬菜和水果,減少糖和鹽的攝取,喝更多的水而不是碳酸飲料,最重要的是堅持吃適當的食物!使用新鮮天然食材烹製,盡量避免加工食品。嘗試使用樓梯而不是電梯,並確保盡可能保持自己的活動力......從長遠來看,所有的小變化都會算數,只要你能夠保持“一致性”,吃得更健康,那麼你就會你會開始看到結果。

你如何定義自己的風格?

我是百分之百的義大利人,因此這對我的風格影響很大。不管是從品質、製作方法、設計和顏色,對我來說都非常重要,所以,是的,我的風格是非常的義大利。

同時,對我來說風格的關鍵是沒有一條直截了當的規則可循。因為所謂的風格就是透過視覺效果和優雅態度的混合,將所有大小細節都結合在一起。

你在時尚界最具挑戰性的挑戰是什麼?你是怎麼克服的?

雖然我喜歡當模特兒,但這並不是世界上最穩定的工作。我們不是每天都工作,有時候會很平淡,但有時會讓人難以置信的瘋狂。

不過,我很幸運,多年來一直在努力保持一定程度的一致性。我決定激發我另一個面向的熱情:「健身」和「表演」。我做了一些表演訓練,並研究成為一個PT,這兩個領域的發展和我的模特兒職業發展上有著非常好的平衡。

誰是你的偶像?

如果我們談論時尚,那麼 David Gandy就是我模特兒產業裡的偶像。因為他憑藉其粗獷而強烈的外觀,重新定義了現有的瘦身模特兒美學,並改變了男性造型世界。他將男性模特兒的造型和外觀改為更經典、漂亮、並產生男士的新時尚。他有著令人敬畏的外表和很棒的風格,而且隨著年齡的增長,他看起來越來越好。

Why do you want to work as a model?

I really like being a model because no two days are the same. My job has given me amazing opportunities and it has taken me to some beautiful locations that otherwise I wouldn’t have had the chance to visit. I love meeting new people on set but at the same time, like seeing familiar faces and people who I become friends over the years.

What do you think about fashion?

Fashion to me is a way to express yourself and reflect your personality. Fashion changes over time but you can never have enough classic pieces in your wardrobe.

Which brand you've worked with that you really enjoy?

This is a tricky question because it’s hard to pick a particular brand. I can say that I much prefer the type of jobs I am getting now at my age compared to my younger years. It seems like I am getting more shoots for luxury items compared to the past and I really like that because most of the time these jobs take place in beautiful locations and amazing sets.

Do you think Western fashion and Asian's fashion has any different?

The main difference between Asian and Western’s fashion in my opinion is (or at least was) that Western people are more eager to follow the trends whether Asian people are more traditional. However, I do believe that things have massively changed over the years and the impact of social media has heavily contributed to bring Western and Asian fashion much closer.

What're your tips to keep your body fit?

To keep your body fit consistency is the key. Being consistent means making exercise and good nutrition a part of your everyday life with the minimum effort possible. But it is important to understand that you don’t need to work out 7 days a week and you don’t need to be on a strict diet for the rest of your life. It is not sustainable, and it won’t work in the long run. Instead, start with finding an exercise regime that you enjoy and that works well for you because you will never stick to anything that is boring or not particularly pleasant for you. You also need to make some necessary changes to your diet but once again, don’t aim to be 100% perfect. Trying to maintain perfection is impossible and it won’t work.

You can go out to dinner at restaurants, you can have a piece of cake, you can have a drink. It is about making positive choices every day like, adding in more vegetables and fruit to your meals, reduce the intake of sugar and salt, drink more water rather than fizzy drinks and most of all stick to proper food! Cook delicious meals by using fresh and natural ingredients and avoid as much as possible processed food. Trying to use the stairs instead of the lift and make sure you stay as active as possible… in the long run, all the small changes add up. Be consistent, eat healthier and you will start to see results.

How do you define your style?

Well I am 100 % Italian and that has a strong influence in my style. Quality, craftmanship, design and colours are very important for me and to answer the question, yes, my style is Italian.

At the same time, the key thing for me is that there isn’t one straightforward rule to follow. It’s really all about mixing and incorporating the big and small details together by always keeping an eye to visual power and elegance.

What's your most remarkable challenge in the fashion industry? How did you overcome it?

Although I love modelling, it’s not the most stable job in the world. We don’t work every day, sometimes it goes quiet and sometimes it’s unbelievably crazy.

However, I have been lucky enough to have been working with a certain degree of consistency over the years. I decided to explore my other passions on the side: fitness and acting. I did some acting training and studied to become a PT which both work well alongside modelling.

Who is your icon?

If we talk about fashion, David Gandy is who I consider to be the male model icon. With his rugged and strong look, he redefined the existing aesthetic of skinny models and transformed the male modelling world. He changed the shape and look of the male model to the more classic, good looking and stylish man. He has an awesome look and a great style, and it seems he is getting better and better with age.
