Interview by Caterina Coccioli.

As the next Capsule Show is approaching, we recently got in touch with Stefano Ughetti to catch up on Camo's new season. He disclosed some exclusive details of his next F/W13 collection in this Q&A...

What's "CAMO" inspiration for next season ?

The title is "CAMO RALLY COLLECTION F/W13" and celebrates people's instincts.

Who's the "CAMO" style icon for next season?

Steve McQueen

What's the "CAMO" design process ?

I took inspiration from the design of some iconic race rally cars, Lancia Stratos and "Lancia Delta Integrale" HF 16V. Especially, for color scale, I used the coloring of the old Martini and Alitalia sponsor.

What is new for your Fall Winter Collection? What makes it unique and innovative?

The accessories are new. A beret, two new shoe styles and the gloves, of course. Regarding innovation, if in 30 years the clothes of this collection become vintage clothes, this will mean that they are new and innovative now, but we can only know this in 30 years.

Describe some of the most significant garments, colors and fabrics...

The colors will be blue, light blue, red and green.

How are you preparing for next season and the next Capsule show?

Regarding the showing of Pitti Immagine in Florence, we will do a special performance the second day of the show. The name of this project is Alternative Set and it will take place within the fortress. After that we will show in Capsule Paris - for us the most important show.

What's the best thing that is going to happen in 2013 ? What are your goals, collaborations, new projects?

2012 is ending in a remarkable way. We just took part in the Milano Unica project Onstage in Milan and Shanghai. (See the fashion show here.) Thinking ahead to 2013, I have a lot of intentions including a January project organized by & Pitti Immagine that will be called "Vestirsi da uomo" (in English "Dress up as a man").
