Natalia Resmini is a creative, multi-talented fashion illustrator and surfer working regularly with Corriere della Sera Newspaper, Elle Italy, Elle Hong Kong, RedMilk Magazine among others and she designed our awesome logo for Lihamo Boutique. She lives between Italy and France and we wanted her to tell us more about her inspirations and thoughts.
NATALIA, HOW DID YOU GET INTO FASHION ILLUSTRATING?
I really wanted to do something creative, it was a primary need. Growing up in Italy means breathing culture, art, design everyday. I studied fine arts in Florence, I’ve been always very fascinated by fashion, so I decided to combine these two passions in a profession. Here we go!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My father, my boyfriend Sebastiano, my surfer friends worldwide, Lupin III, The Olsen Twins, Chiara Ferragni, Alex Katz, David Hockney, my best friend Sandra, the 60’s and the 70’s, the hip hop scene, Balenciaga, Hermes, YSL, Instagram, the colours of my garden, Los Angeles, Sardinia Island.
WHERE DO YOU MAINLY SURF?
I surf in my home spot, which is at the boarder between Italy and France. Or in Sardinia Island, where I live with my boyfriend during the summer. In the winter I travel. This year I’ve been to California and Mexico and scored great waves over there!
WHAT NEW PROJECTS DO YOU HAVE IN THE PIPELINE?
Ehehehe so many you can´t even imagine! This is just the beginning. I feel so positive and fresh… I really believe in a future…full of love, friends, waves and creativity.
