Born in Brescia, Italy, Cominelli first studied Photography at Milan’s prestigious European Institute of Design before upping sticks to NYC to intern at V Magazine, where he discovered his penchant for styling. Moving back across the pond, Cominelli began an internship at Vogue Hommes International in Paris, where – after a brief stint in design (customisation of vintage pieces, technically) back home in his native Italy – he remained, working in close collaboration with Anastasia Barbieri.
Cominelli was named Fashion Editor of Vogue Hommes International in 2009 and continued to contribute to other publications up to his death.
My sincere and heartfelt condolences go to Cominelli’s family, friends and all those who witnessed, and will forever miss watching, his genius.
