The second episode of the PLEASED TO MEET YOU series is dedicated to the independent designer Davide Bacchin, who has worked alongside Philippe Model Paris to produce some of the brand’s models, including the Montecarlo running shoe.

Born in Padua, after a period of training in industrial design in Italy, he continued to gain experience in New York, where he worked for major international activewear brands. After returning to Italy, in 2012 he began working as a consultant.

PLEASED TO MEET YOU is a special project undertaken by Philippe Model Paris to bring the brand’s values to the fore using the voice of the creative talents gravitating around it. The dynamic energy and creativity of the international talents emerge through the brand’s eyes, while the stories told in the individual films in the PLEASED TO MEET YOU series focus on the human aspect and on the creative process leading to the partnership between the talents themselves and Philippe Model and how the brand’s heritage has inspired them in the innovation process. The stories of all the talents do not merely focus on their lives, they are also filmed in the city they live in, as an integral part of their creativity and the style that distinguishes their work. Davide’s episode was filmed in the Veneto region (Italy), which is also home to Philippe Model’s all-Italian footwear factory and artisans.

The video dedicated to Davide was the work of Italian director Marco Mucig, who in his career has worked with major fashion and design brands, as well as publications such as T Magazine, Hypebeast and Highsnobiety.
