One of my all time favorite designers, Daniel Palillo, was nice enough to answer some of my silly interview questions earlier this year. I'm so excited to finally share the long lost 'Pulling Teeth' interview alongside images of his incredible Autumn Winter 2013 'Wasted Youth' collection. Enjoy!
|How are you Daniel, A/S/L?
I am good. Busy. Broke my finger yesterday. I think I have broken four of my fingers in my life. My record is that I broke the same finger for three times. I play soccer and I am goalie. So now its gonna be a small holiday.
