The new lookbook of the adidas x Gucci collection

The new lookbook of the adidas x Gucci collection

Andrea Tuzio · 1 week ago · Style

The adidas x Gucci collection, signed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, mixes the symbols of the Italian fashion house and those of the German sportswear giant.

First presented during Gucci’s Exquisite runway show, today the new lookbook anticipates the launch scheduled for June 7. 
The collection expands the proposal of the sartorial streetwear creations seen on the runway with a series of garments inspired by sports and characterized by the kaleidoscopic nature of the show.
Alessandro Michele has created images inspired by archival catalogs, with the characters in dynamic poses on brightly colored backgrounds and with props close to the sports imagery, photographed by Carlijn Jacobs.

adidas and Gucci combine iconic symbols in ready-to-wear items that echo classic sports silhouettes.

Jogger pants feature adidas’ white Three Stripes on one leg and Gucci’s green and red web stripe on the other. The prints, on the other hand, combine motifs such as the adidas Clover and the GG monogram, the synergy of which enhances both traditions. Even the collection’s more formal items, such as heeled shoes, suede loafers and silk scarves, experience this hybridization process and are reinterpreted in a casual key. Similarly, the retro aesthetic takes on a contemporary allure, calibrated on the idea that there are no dogmas of dressing.

The first lookbook precedes the launch of the collection scheduled for June 7th in select Gucci stores, adidas x Gucci Pop-Ups and online, as well as on the adidas CONFIRMED app.

Collater.al & Brillo. Together in the name of the love of illustration

Collater.al & Brillo. Together in the name of the love of illustration

Giulia Guido · 5 days ago · Art

We need new imagery, created in pencil, pen, black and white or colour, drawn on a sheet of paper or digitally. We also need a place where we can admire and immerse ourselves in these imaginaries. And what if this place were actually two? 
Collater.al and Brillo have joined forces to give even greater prominence to illustrators who are ready to take us into their world. 

Over the next few months, the Instagram profiles of @collater.al and @brillo_magazine will feature the work of these young talents, who promptly responded to the open call launched by the two magazines, and which you can always review here.

“Okja” in ten frames

“Okja” in ten frames

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Art

Okja” is a 2017 film directed by Bong Joon-ho. Although it did not rake in awards like the subsequent “Parasite“, “Okja” ranks among the South Korean director’s best works and features an ensemble cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The film tells the story of a young girl who for most of her life has raised a genetically modified “super pig,” building a bond of mutual affection with him. But their lives are set to change drastically as the industry that actually created the animal must take it back to begin the slaughtering process.
This is an exposing film against the mistreatment of animals within the meat industry that manages to deal with the topic by focusing on empathy and friendship. For this very reason in 2019 it was named one of the most influential films of the decade by the New York Times. 

In “Okja,” the state of mind of the protagonist and her animal are reflected in the colors of the sets and the choices related to the cinematography, curated by Darius Khondji (Seven, Midnight in Paris, Uncut Gems), which manage to completely capture the viewer.

The illusion of calm in the illustrations of Kento IIDA

The illusion of calm in the illustrations of Kento IIDA

Tommaso Berra · 4 days ago · Art

You know the sky on certain summer days, when you couldn’t find a cloud miles away and everything above our heads is a delicate blue, the color of the sweetest of spun sugars? Illustrator Kento IIDA finds in this atmosphere of calm the inspiration for his works, images of tranquil landscapes but leaving an atmosphere of suspicion, as if something unforeseen will happen soon, or as if something unforeseen has just happened, far from the eyes of possible witnesses.
In these vignettes there are always elements or signs that suggest a movement that breaks the calm, sometimes the movement has already happened or is in progress, as in the case of cars launching from bridges or space missiles lifting angular clouds to the sky like marble sculptures.

Kento IIDA (who is based in Tokyo) incorporates elements of Japanese tradition in his illustrations, thus traditional buildings and views of snow-capped peaks that hint at Mount Fuji appear in these ambiguous scenes, as well as baseball players, a national sport in Japan and probably the artist’s favorite.
There are not only clear skies in the views, however; poetry is also provided by clouds, often single and isolated, or by gloomy skies that sound like an omen, in an increasingly suspended and uncertain time.

Vickie Vainionpää’s code-generated works

Vickie Vainionpää’s code-generated works

Tommaso Berra · 1 day ago · Art

Artistic expression is now no longer bound only to manual gesture, and in some cases not even to the artist’s choice. Vickie Vainionpää‘s works in fact follow that artistic strand in which works are the result of codes, of an algorithm that creates unpredictable solutions by reworking basic information. The Montreal-based artist creates his works through a generative code, which traces a certain number of points placed in a Cartesian plane.
The result is that of twisted shapes like guts or extraterrestrial organic creatures, in which even the color and shades are dictated by the generative code.

The forms are then the basis for oil paintings on canvas, in which the digital forms acquire a presence and matter through the texture of the support, the shadows and the layering of color. Some of these canvases are recently on display in New York at The Hole NYC gallery for the artist’s solo exhibition entitled “Software.”
In Vickie Vainionpää’s works, the relationship between man and machine merges, the physical and virtual experience become interconnected to the point of blurring the genesis of everything. Who creates? Who is created by whom? A series of questions that help read and complicate the present.
