Who is STUDIOPRETZEL?
Studiopretzel is me, myself and I!
My name is Emiliano Laszlo, I am 34 years old.
When have you started your brand and why?
Studiopretzel was born in may 2011. I did it because I wanted something entirely mine. I followed my feelings, walking the road I could see in front of me, a path that maybe not everyone can see. I believed in it.
What is fashion for you?
For me fashion is something you are growing inside yourself. It’s a way to show people how you see things.
It’s definitely not ‘what color will be cool next summer’!
What you like most when designing menswear?
Creating a brand by your own allowed you to put everything in it. That is an incredible luxury.
This is the main thing, i guess: freedom.
Have you thought of designing womenswear someday?
I’ve tried during the first year to develop an only women shirt line, but i really didn’t have the time to do both women and men.
I would love to try again sooner or later.
Why are Japan and Martial Arts a source of inspiration for your collections?
Japan was in my life till a young age, karate, mangas, food, lot of friends and amazing travels over there.
So it was very natural for me to be inspired by that country.
You are a sport guy. What do you play?
I’m a brasilian jiu jitsu purple belt. I train and teach in Florence, my very own city.
What is our favorite piece of clothing that you never get bored with?
Could be weird, but i think it’s the bermuda. It’s the only piece in my wardrobe to be ready to wear in any occasion.
What makes you happy?
I’m happy when i’m done with the orders and sipping moscow mule with my wife.
Who do you admire most?
I’m not the kind of guy that thinks to much about examples, models in life or work.
I would like to live like my parents did. They were, and are actually, full of life.
What are your next steps for your brand?
Next steps for Studiopretzel are raising the income and keep offering a selection of cool outfits with a great hand-making production.
