At first I thought that I was going to do something really sexy and really strong, and then as my ideas started developing I realised that wasn’t the right direction.” — Mario Sorrenti.

It’s not often enough that we get insight into the process of development that is the very basis of the fashion industry. It’s even rarer to also hear of its abandoned ideas. And yet that’s precisely what you’ll get from from the ‘making of’ the 2012 Pirelli calendar documentary.

Spanning 21 minutes, the documentary takes you behind the scenes on the photo shoots for all of the calendar’s key looks.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
