Vanacore Napoli bespoke shirt with Canclini fabric.

#Me, MySelf & I.

35Flag_of_the_United_KingdomHello guys, today I want to show you some shots of  bespoke shirt processing, commissioned three weeks ago at Vanacore, Neapolitan shirt-maker; using a Canclini“Rotschield Platinum 200/2” fabric. 

Vanacore is located in Portici, in my country; is a reality that still small and young but boasts collaborations with large commercial giants of the eastern world. It composed of workers from better shirt factories that have made the history of the “Neapolitan shirt”.

Contigo, las cosas son.

(Gracias por ser tan tú
cuando yo soy demasiado yo)

De poco sirve pedirte perdón si cuando no nos vemos me olvido de ti y de mí. Este laberinto poco tiene de divertido y casi todo lo que te diga te sonará a vacío, que es el idioma de los que no sabemos cómo sentir. Mírame a los miedos y repíteme eso de que la esperanza es lo último que se tiene, que yo sé lo bien que conoces esa palabra, porque sabes y hueles a ella.

Una vez te dije que no sabes lo bien que queda la suerte en tu sonrisa y que si todos tenemos un lado oscuro, el tuyo debo ser yo. Todo eso sigue ahí, y seguirá, y si me da por olvidarlo me basta con volver a robarte un qué loco estás mientras yo te pellizco para…
