Lorenzo Liverani is one of those rare talents in the world of fashion today. Multi talented, impeccably stylish, dapper, and business savvy – it should come as no surprise that this Style Star calls Florence, the hometown of the Renaissance, his home. Lorenzo’s style is showcased on his blog, Your-Mirror, and we are consistently impressed with Lorenzo’s signature style, so it was great to get the opportunity to pick the master’s brain, and learn a bit more about what makes his style his own, and his thoughts on fashion, and the future.
First, a bit of an introduction to yourself. What is your name, and what do you do?
My name is Lorenzo and I’m a studying fashion designer in Florence, where actually I live. The last October I decided to open Your-Mirror
man’s blog. Until now it has more than 40,000 visits.
What would be your earliest fashion memory, and has it played a part in leading you to your fashion future?
Since I was a child, I lived surrounded by clothes. In fact, my Dad has a big clothes shop and I was always there, so I lived fashion work and fashion life every day, so I think this is my world
When you wake up in the morning, what thoughts go through your mind while picking out your outfit for the day?
When I choose my outfit I always think about my day’s commitments, weather, and absolutely depends on my mood.
Do you have any go-to inspirations or style idols you look up to in your own style?
Honestly I haven’t a fashion icon, and my typical style is classic informal, younger, modern and contemporary. Especially in the summer, my outfits are easy wear.
You’re walking down the street and stumble upon a time portal that will take you anywhere you want to go in the history of time. Where do you decide to take it, and why?
Really fun and nice question. Absolutely in nineteenth-century when dandy style was born. I love the fashion and lifestyle of that period.
You get the chance to work with anybody in the fashion industry, who would it be and why?
Anna Wintour because I want to know if she is as bad as she seems (ahah). No, honestly I’d like to much work for Dior, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent… iconic fashion.
Here’s a fun one. You’ve accidentally conjured up an angry spirit who won’t get the hell out of your closet. You want to call the cops, but you know they won’t believe you so you pull out your exorcism kit and go to work. What is the one thing you are hoping to save from your wardrobe?
My sunglasses. I never go out without them.
What is the worst fashion advice you’ve ever heard or been given?
OK, I think the fashion world is so big and different from country to country, so everyone has a peronal style. So for me, there isn’t good style or bad style because it subjective, however, I don’t remember because honestly I didn’t listened to many suggestions from other people about fashion.
Any thoughts of the future of mens fashion and/or fashion in general, through the eyes of Lorenzo?
I think that classic style will win always. I think usually some designers or people exaggerate with whimsical style and thus becoming circus people.
