Discover the Damien Hirst x Vault by Vans collection

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Style

After seeing the works of Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo become patterns and textures for Vans garments and sneakers, the American skate shoe company announced a collaboration with one of the most popular and talked about contemporary artists. This is how the Damien Hirst x Vault by Vans collection was created to celebrate art and to inspire nonconformists, with the participation of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas

The capsule collection, which will be released on December 6 exclusively at Vault by Vans in New York and inside the hotel at 4321 Flamingo Road in Las Vegas, consists of 6 sneakers, 3 Sk8-Hi and 3 Slip-On, on which some of the works and elements characteristic of Damien Hirst, such as butterflies, colored dots, stains of color and skulls will be reproduced.

The artist, enthusiastic about the collaboration, commented: 

“It’s fabulous to be collaborating with Palms and Vans on this project. I’ve always loved Vans and the artwork works brilliantly on these shoes. I can’t wait for people to see them. It’s amazing for an artist to have the sort of freedom Palms and Vans have given me.

Discover the six sneakers in our gallery and stay tuned so you don’t miss all the next collaborations!

One Block Down and New Balance together for 850 drop out

One Block Down and New Balance together for 850 drop out

Giordana Bonanno · 3 months ago · Style

On Friday 22 November we took part in the trail experience organized by One Block Down and New Balance on the occasion of the launch of 850 e 850AT. The trail consisted of a one-and-a-half-hour hike to Mount Barro (also known as Mount Galbiate) and a climb to the summit, with an altitude of 922 meters.

30 guests were invited to the trail to test the potential of the 850AT shoe, a unisex trail-inspired model with a Vibram® sole that is durable for added grip, but which preserves a use primarily dedicated to urban life. Its design is inspired by the original 850 silhouette and features a breathable mesh upper with nylon fabric parts, the NB logo on the heel and unique lacing details. 

Due to the adverse weather conditions, it was decided to stop the hike at half altitude where, in addition to enjoying a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view, was presented the 850, a “chunky” sneaker with a slimmer design and road, introduced for the first time in 1996 and also remembered as the shoeless homologated to previous models, perhaps because it was designed by the youngest New Balance designer of those years.

Today, the 850 remains true to its heritage with an upper that includes mesh, leather and straps, the “NB” logo on the heel and a shaped tongue. The perfect mix in a single shoe for those who love the comfort and don’t want to give up the retro 90’s style of the “daddy’s shoes”.

The 850 AT is available from New Balance, One Block Down and selected retailers, while the 850 AT is available exclusively from OBD.

Everything we know about Dior and Stüssy’s collaboration

Everything we know about Dior and Stüssy’s collaboration

Anna Cardaci · 3 months ago · Style

In recent years, in the world of fashion, has created a close relationship between the brands of high fashion and streetwear. In fact, there are many luxury brands that, in order to get closer to young people and street culture, have decided to create entire collections with clothing and accessories that meet the new needs of the market. Dior is no exception. For months there have been rumors that the French fashion house is planning a collaboration with Stüssy. Today, Tuesday December 3, on the occasion of Miami Art Basel, Dior will show the world, through a catwalk, the last winter exclusive collection for men that will be on sale online and in boutiques from 2020.

The news was announced by the haute couture brand with the publication of a post on its Instagram page and, later, through an interview with WWD, in which the artistic director of the men’s line, Kim Jones, told how he was interested in creating a collaboration with Stüssy, a brand that since he was fourteen years old, has always worn and adored.

The show will take place at the Rebell Museum of Contemporary Art on the eve of the official opening to the public of Art Basel, which this year will take place from 5 to 8 December.

The show marks the official return of Shawn Stüssy, who has been absent from the fashion market since he left the brand in 1996. The partnership with Stüssy represents a new street collaboration for Kim Jones – who already in the past, when leading Louis Vuitton, proposed a line with Supreme – and further reinforces the link between fashion and sport.

DIESEL and the most expensive t-shirt in the world!

DIESEL and the most expensive t-shirt in the world!

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Style

Do you want a house for free? With DIESEL it’s possible, all you need is a T-shirt for just $1,049,000. 

It was November 2018, when the globally known Italian company and brand announced its entry into the real estate world and today, exactly one year later DIESEL, together with Bel Invest, is ready to sell the first apartments of its condominium in Miami. 

In the Wynwood district, one of the richest and most beautiful in the American city, from where you can enjoy both a wonderful view of the ocean and wide green spaces, the building signed DIESEL offers all the comforts, from the swimming pool to the gym, from a meditation room to an open-space used as an art gallery. 

For the official launch of this project, DIESEL has thought of a very original campaign that manages to keep the focus on the apparel entitled “The Condo T-shirts–The Most Expensive T-Shirts Ever“. In practice, 143 T-shirts have been made with the prints of the apartments for sale, which will have a cost ranging from $ 449,000 to $ 5,500,000. 

Actually the price is a bit high, but if we take into account that you will receive a free house we can consider the t-shirt literally free. 

The photo campaign created by the creative agency SMALL and photographer Hernan Corera will be presented today at Art Basel in Miami, while the t-shirts will be available from December 4 exclusively at the Diesel Wynwoon Condominium.

“42.5”, Mattia Rossi’s docu about the Sneaker Culture

“42.5”, Mattia Rossi’s docu about the Sneaker Culture

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Style

Born in Modena, Mattia Rossi is an author, director and videomaker who during his career has taken part both in major productions signed Sky and Mediaset, but also in personal projects. The last of these will be presented to the public at the end of December and will deal with a topic much loved by us at Collater.al and increasingly in vogue.

42punto5 Mattia Rossi | Collater.al

Entitled “42.5” the documentary will tell in a new way and through the stories and anecdotes of guests, professionals and fans, the Italian Sneaker Culture, addressing issues such as the current state of the shoe market, from shops to the phenomenon of re-sell.

Mattia Rossi’s goal is to show a wider audience a world that seems accessible to few and to allow anyone to see the sneakers in a new light, focusing on the passion and dedication of collectors and enthusiasts.

42.5 is the cross-section of a phenomenon that in a few years has gathered more and more followers, transforming itself from a niche reality to one of more widespread interest.

Watch the trailer below!
