Originally from Eastern Europe, Germina moved to Switzerland when she was 4 and grew up between Milan and Lugano. Her parents were already involved in the Fashion Business and from them she built up a strong passion and affinity for the Fashion Industry. Her dreams led her to travel and experience the world. Two years ago, she settled in Zurich and started her career as a Retail Buyer and Fashion Consultant for a Luxury Brand.
For over 50 years The Cal™ measured the passage of time through the images of some of the most renown photographers.
A cult object for enthusiasts, thanks in part to its ability to interpret the esthetic ideals and symbols which marked an era, bearing witness to the evolution of taste, lifestyle and fashion.
For the unveiling of the calendar’s 2015 edition Pirelli has decided to enlist three key influencers, who’ll convey three of the many sides of the Pirelli world: fashion, photography and automobiles.
