5 fashion-dedicated museums to visit

5 fashion-dedicated museums to visit

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Art, Style

This article is dedicated to all those who will choose to spend their summer vacations away from sunny beaches and instead spend their vacations in art cities or major capitals of the world. And you know, museums are the first destination once you arrive in a new city.
So I decided to suggest 5 museums dedicated to fashion that you must necessarily visit if you are in one of these cities. You’re welcome!

1 – Met – New York, USA

If you are in the Big Apple, you can in no way fail to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art (Met) on Fifth Avenue. Opened on Feb. 20, 1872, the MET is one of the world’s largest art galleries as well as the nerve center of New York art. Within the museum exists the Anna Wintour Costume Center–named after the editor-in-chief of Vogue America–a wing that houses the Costume Institute collection, where the most important and exclusive charity fundraising gala of all, the Met Gala, is held each year. 

2 – Museo Cristóbal Balenciaga – Getaria, Spain 

The Basque Country is an absolute wonder. The city of Getaria is home to the Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum, birthplace of the “master of all couturiers”, and is a public institution dedicated to studying and keeping alive the memory of the Spanish designer who founded Balenciaga.
Inaugurated in 2011, it was the first major museum in the world dedicated exclusively to a single designer in such a way as to highlight the impact and relevance that Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work has had and continues to have in the world of fashion, art and design.

3 – Museo Yves Saint Laurent – Paris, France

5,000 square meters, opened in October 2017, in the heart of Paris hosting drawings, videos, photos and sketches dedicated to the wonderful work of Yves Saint Laurent, inside the Fondation Pierre Bergé. 
Here it will be possible to fully immerse oneself in what was the birth and development of the French fashion house born in 1061. 

4 – Museo Christian Dior – Granville, France

In Normandy, then in northwest France, is Granville, a commune of just over 13,000 inhabitants where one of the most important and decisive fashion designers of all time, Christian Dior, grew up. 
Villa Les Rhumbs is a pink and gray house built on a cliff, and it is the home where Dior spent his childhood and to which he was always very attached and was a big source of inspiration for him. The mansion was transformed into the Christian Dior Museum in 1988 and has since housed stories and objects that have shaped the history of the French fashion house.

5 – Gucci Garden – Florence, Italy

A city of art par excellence, Florence is the city of museums. Among them, however, I would like to point out the Gucci Garden, opened by Alessandro Michele in 2018 inside the Palazzo della Marcanzia in the Tuscan capital. Once there you will be able to immerse yourself in the history of the fashion house, buy limited collections in the boutique and taste Massimo Bottura’s extraordinary dishes at the Gucci Osteria.

Clarks Originals x Them Skates, the collaboration we wanted

Clarks Originals x Them Skates, the collaboration we wanted

Andrea Tuzio · 4 days ago · Style

If you have at least once in your life happened to put a pair of inline skates on your feet, then you can understand my excitement to learn the news that, one two of my favorite brands and closely related to this world, Clarks Originals, has announced its latest collaboration with Them Skates

The collaboration includes two iconic Clarks Originals silhouettes, Wallabee Boot and Wallabee Cup Mule, reimagined in terms of materials and coloration; and two pairs of the skating brand’s skates, THEM 80s, with 80 mm wheelbase, and THEM 909s, with 58 mm wheels.

“The Wallabee runs deep in inline skating shoe culture. Just like in hip hop culture in the late nineties, the Wallabee was a staple shoe for the before and after skate lifestyle. Run it back to 1996 and you would see the Wallabee on many skaters and brand advertisements. Naturally, a collaboration with Clark’s Originals and Them Skates was inevitable”, these are the words of Jon Julio, founder of Them Skates.

This collaboration brings together the world of 90s skating and Wallabee’s role in street culture.

L’intera collezione Clarks Originals x Them Skates può essere preordinata già oggi esclusivamente online su www.themgoods.com e, a partire dal 4 novembre, anche su SSENSE.

Post Malone and Moose Knuckles prepare us for winter

Post Malone and Moose Knuckles prepare us for winter

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

Canadian brand Moose Knuckles has launched a special capsule collection, consisting of 10 no-gender items, in collaboration with one of contemporary music’s strongest superstars, Post Malone.
The collection seamlessly blends the extraordinary creativity of Post Malone and the disruptive spirit of Moose Knuckles.

“This collaboration with Moose Knuckles was natural from the beginning. The collection is about celebration and doing things your own way based on your instincts. I’m really proud of what we’ve created and I hope you all love it as much as we do”, these are the words with which the singer originally from Syracuse, New York, shared about the collaboration.

The campaign was shot in Utah Nature Park on a winter night earlier this year, and is a luxury take on functional cold-weather clothing. 

“Moose Knuckles’ collaboration with Post Malone was inspired by the fearless spirit we all know and love about him. He is a master of collaboration in music and the same can be said for fashion. He is a true visionary and was very involved in every step of the process. We shot everything with a harsh flash in the dark woods, and it was the perfect environment. He really captured the irreverent, sassy rock star soul that he is”, said Moose Knuckles Design Vice President Tu Ly.

The brand decided to make the collection available for adults and children, including a kids category, inspired by the son of Bobby Greenleaf, Post Malone’s close friend and Creative Director. 

“We chose to work with talents who share our same core values. Moose Knuckles x Post Malone is the most authentic form of an anti-luxury collection. We never took ourselves too seriously and when we met Post, our energies immediately connected”, Dominique Lagleva, Global Marketing Vice President of Moose Knuckles.

The Moose Knuckles X Post Malone collection is already available at mooseknucklescanada.com and at select retailers.

Kid Cudi, Virgil Abloh and “Entergalactic”

Kid Cudi, Virgil Abloh and “Entergalactic”

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

“Entegalactic”, this is the title of the Netflix original animated special that can be seen starting today on the American streaming platform. 

Initially conceived as an animated TV series, this special created by Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi aka Kid Cudi, tells the story of Jabari – voiced by Mescudi himself – a charming artist on the threshold of success who, after a chance meeting with his photographer neighbor, Meadow, will be faced with the choice of whether or not to let love into his life.

Also available today on Spotify is the self-titled album, made by Kid Cudi and heard about since 2019, in which the soundtrack of the special is contained.

What makes the project even more fascinating is to discover that the costume design within the special was created by the late Virgil Abloh. In fact, it is no coincidence that “Entegalactic” is being released today, Sept. 30, the 42nd birthday of the designer and creative who passed away prematurely on Nov. 28 last year.

When it came to defining the fashion details of the show, Cudi made sure that each character wore something different in every single espisode. Executive producer Kenya Barris told how they made sure each character stayed true to contemporary trends and aesthetics.

Cudi, in an interview in conjunction with the series on Netflix’s YouTube channel, spoke of his friend Virgil’s untold legacy and how he consistently represents a decisive inspiration, as well as reiterating how integral Abloh’s work for the series was to the story itself.

Below you can see the interview Kid Cudi gave on the occasion of the release of “Entegalactic”
