Having seen the rise and rebirth of fitted cap culture, Alessandro notes the evolution of the 59FIFTY, where once you could easily purchase a cap of your choice, he now finds that the growth in popularity sometimes even forces him to purchase caps at resell – a sign of broadening appreciation for fitteds both as a sportwear item and fashion accessory. His current most coveted cap is his red Paper Planes 59FIFTY, a hat which doesn’t see many regular releases. Alongside this his favourite cap is the all-black Seattle Mariners, another rare release.
To him this is more than just his collection of caps, these are symbols of the taste and culture which over the years has grown to define and embody his personal aesthetic, which bleeds into not only his style but also his artistry and influence as a creator. Even after over 20 years Alessandro’s passion for headwear remains intact, still feeling the buzz of seeing a new fitted colourway he has to have, as strong as ever.
