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.

Wow, cannt believe this news, I just saw him on the street two week ago during the Paris fashion week with his long coat. What a loss.
A beautiful piece – thanks for the coverage. Francesco will be missed.
that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you DO IT. I have never seen anyone dress like he could. Clothes really do maketh the man. Go with God, Francesco. 🙁
