Carhartt WIP’s FW19 campaign that doesn’t look like a campaign

Carhartt WIP’s FW19 campaign that doesn’t look like a campaign

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

Tired of those advertisements made of empty images and without a real message? The ones that fill pages and pages of magazines, taking away space from the contents? Perhaps Carhartt WIP has found the solution to all this, creating a beautiful campaign, with crazy and meaningful photographs. 

The US brand‘s FW19 campaign presents the new items of the collection in fantastic shots taken by photographer Maciek Pozoga. Each image, characterized by a vintage style, tells a story as if it had been extrapolated from a larger series. 

The visual narrative is also accompanied by a title and a real text that illustrates what we are really looking at, contextualizing places and people, but also introducing characters we don’t see, but who have to do with the photo. 

Carhartt WIP’s campaign will perhaps be the only one that you will not leaf through listlessly, on the contrary, it will keep you glued to the page.

Elian Chali immerses walls in color with his street art

Elian Chali immerses walls in color with his street art

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Art

Elian Chali is a self-taught Argentinean artist who creates beautiful murals rich in color, characterized by huge backgrounds with bright tones, minimalist and incisive design. It is not uncommon to find anamorphic forms in his murals, which are able to give dynamism to the various color blocks so that, seen with the naked eye, his works seem almost digital reproductions of reality.

The artist’s intent is to represent the dynamic and creative soul of the city through bright colors full of life. The primary colors allow to simplify the process of assimilation by the public, so as to bring abstract art to a minimum.

In addition to his street projects, Elian creates small paintings and prints suitable for the gallery space, and the artist also works as a freelance curator.

LEGO celebrates its history with a huge wooden minifig

LEGO celebrates its history with a huge wooden minifig

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

We all know LEGO, we have all built houses, castles, palaces, and models at least once, but not everyone knows that originally instead of the current ABS plastic, the bricks were made of wood. 

Their invention is to be credited to the Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen who initially worked to create small cars and animals, and then he made the famous interlocking brick. Only many years later, in 1978, when wood was replaced by other materials, did the first mini-figure, a policeman, appear.  

This year, to celebrate that release and the entire history of the company, LEGO has decided to create a limited edition wooden figure in scale 5:1, or seven-inch-tall. 

In addition to containing the unique piece, in the package, you can find a booklet with the entire history of LEGO and 29 additional pieces to customize it.  

If you love colored bricks you can not appear this unique piece that more than a toy is a real piece of design. 

Discover it in our gallery!

Mcflyy Studio: sneakers land in Hollywood

Mcflyy Studio: sneakers land in Hollywood

Collater.al Contributors · 1 month ago · Art

On October 25th, at Los Angeles, has been opened to the public the first pop up museum projected and entirely dedicated to honoring sneakers lovers. For many people these are just “shoes”, but for sneakerhead, this is true culture and distinctive lifestyle.

The event was attended by the world’s largest sneaker brands and many artists including Michael Murphy, Jonas Never, Ricardo Gonzalez. 

The event in question is “Sneakertopia” and it is defined by the chief executive director as “a project created, developed and curated with the aim of presenting sneaker-themed installations by placing them in a museum context”. 

The initiative was a moment dedicated to the culture and trends of sneakers, sport, music, art and a tribute to the world of streetwear

For the launch of the event, some designers have created posters that celebrate the most iconic sneakers inserting them in film contexts that have left a mark in the world of films.

In particular, Mcflyy, a graphic and visual design studio in Los Angeles founded by Paul Shelton. He is famous in the industry for collaborating with well-known brands in the industry including Puma, Under Armour, Moncler and many others.

Mcflyy Studio has revisited the posters of some of the must-have films in the history of cinema in the 80s and 90s, creating illustrations studied in detail giving it a personal and innovative touch.

These films are in order: Forrest Gump 2, The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, Reebok, E.T, Fight Club, Back to the Future and the Exorcist.
What he did was to include some of the most iconic sneakers of recent years and more contemporary elements within each illustration.

For example, in the Pulp Fiction poster, Beatrix Kiddo aka Uma Thurman was reinterpreted in a modern key by a girl with long black hair, a pair of yellow sunglasses and a pair of Air Jordan at her feet.

The title of the films has also been shaped according to the new concept. 

This idea of modifying, aging and bringing the Pulp Fiction poster up to date has also been applied to the other films mentioned above.
Surely it is an interesting experiment that manages to reconcile the Hollywood film reality with the streetwear lifestyle that dominates the culture of the sneakerheads.

Tim Burton’s Batmobile can be yours but made of LEGO bricks

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

In 1989, the version of Batman signed by the eclectic American director Tim Burton was released in the cinema. In the year of its thirtieth anniversary, LEGO decided to celebrate this iconic film with a model of the Batmobile driven by Michael Keaton. 

This toy will be composed of 3300 bricks and will perfectly reproduce the original with a sliding cockpit with wraparound windscreen, the 2 hidden machine guns with pop-up function activated by rotating the turbine exhaust and the decorative clusters on each side of the vehicle. 

The Batmobile LEGO will be accompanied by 3 mini-figures: Batman, The Joker and Vicki Vale and a rotating exhibitor that will allow you to admire the model from every perspective and grasp every detail. 

The end result will be a brick sculpture over 60 cm long, 12 cm high and 22 cm wide – be sure to make some space on the shelves. This inimitable model will be available from 29 November, also the day of Black Friday. 

Discover the complete design below!
