At the start the VII edition of the Live Cinema Festival

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

See the sounds, listen to the images“, this is the claim of the VII edition of the Live Cinema Festival that will take place in Rome from 9th to 16th October

For a week, international artists will take over in live performances, national previews, workshops and symposiums focused on one of the most innovative narrative techniques, able to combine sound, images and space in almost improvised performances, namely live cinema

WHEN:
9th – 16th OCT
WHERE:
Casa dell’Architettura – Piazza Manfredo Fanti, 47, Rome

To frame every single performance there will be the wonderful scenery offered by the historical building of the Acquario Romano, the Casa dell’Architettura, seat of the Order of Architects of Rome. In fact, thanks to the collaboration with SPAM, international festival of Architecture, an event designed specifically for the spaces of the Acquario Romano has been built. Just think that the Sala Ellittica, which will host two live cinema performances every day, has been equipped with a projection system that uses the curved walls of the hall as a screen. 

Among the international guests expected are the Dutch visual music artist Tarik Barri, the Latvian artist Lea Fabrikant, the Austrian artist Partik Lechner, the Czech musicians and composers Aid Kid who worked together with the Visual artist Pavel Karafiàt, the German artist Amelie Duchow.
But that’s not all, Parisian artists Dylan Cote & Pierre Lafanechère will present a performance through which they will explore the pocket world of Google Earth, while the Hungarian duo Žagar AV Experience will investigate the link between traditional fine arts and digital imaging. 

There will also be Italy, which besides being represented by Marco Monfardini, one of the most important Italian media artists of the last 30 years, will see the participation of several other artists to whom a special section called Live Cinema Made in Italy has been dedicated. 

In addition, the program also includes symposiums and workshops of different kinds to which you can participate upon registration and, given the exceptional period, this year there will be the opportunity to follow the events of the Live Cinema Festival also in virtual mode. 

Discover the entire program on the Live Cinema Festival website!

Levi’s and PORTER reinvent the iconic TYPE II

Levi’s and PORTER reinvent the iconic TYPE II

Andrea Tuzio · 4 days ago · Style

On the occasion of the 85th anniversary of the Japanese company Yoshida & Co., Ltd, better known as PORTER famous for its bags and accessories, Levi’s and the brand founded by Kichizo Yoshida on April 1st, 1935, have reinterpreted the iconic TYPE II tracker jacket.

Originally introduced in 1953, the 507XX or TYPE II, as everyone knows it, is the second denim jacket produced by Levi’s after the 506XX or TYPE I. Unlike the first, born in 1905, the TYPE II is the modern version of the previous one: less square and longer with the addition of two chest pockets instead of one and the removal of the back closure.

The first editions of the 507XX had leather labels on the inside of the collar while in later versions the leather was replaced by paper to make production more economical, thus increasing Levi’s impact on the denim market of the time. The 507XX tracker jacket thus became the work jacket of cowboys, farmers and others.

Levi’s x PORTER TYPE II tracker jacket is made of nylon twill fabric and assembled with the classic PORTER TANLER bonding process as well as the orange inner lining.

Released in two different colors, black and sage green, the jacket comes with two chest pockets – inside one of them there is a removable mini bag that can be used as a shoulder strap – and two inside, co-branded snap buttons and an oversized fit.

The trucker jacket TYPE II by Levi’s and PORTER will be available from October 23rd on Yoshida Kaban’s webstore.

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

A true icon of the 1980s inspired the most extensive clothing collection a brand has ever made in collaboration with a car company.

The collaboration between BMW and KITH is the result of the passion for the historic BMW E30 by the founder of the New York brand Ronnie Fieg, and was born in the late ’80s thanks to his grandfather, owner of a fantastic red E30. A splendid car, identifies the second generation of the BMW 3 Series produced from 1982 to 1992 and which represented an era.

Ronnie Fieg has put together a very large selection of garments, 94 to be exact, plus a 1989 BMW E30 M3 branded KITH.

The co-branding collection ranges from tracksuits to bathrobes, from kimonos to sweaters, from wool jackets to leather or velvet bomber jackets, from gloves to coach jackets, from cardigans to long-sleeved polo shirts, hoodies, scarves, capes, beanies and much more, as well as a series of accessories such as an umbrella, cushions, cups and car accessories (valve caps and license plate frames).

The new colorways of the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle

The new colorways of the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

After introducing you to the Sail/Light Bone/Game Royal/Sport Fuchsia, today we show you the official images of two more colorways of the highly anticipated Nike x Sacai Vaporwaffle, “Red/White/Blue” and “Black/White”.

Chitose Abe, founder of sacai, paid homage to Nike‘s running legacy as he had already done with LDWaffles but at the same time characterized the new Vaporwaffles with the classic conceptual sacai aesthetic of deconstruction and reconstruction playing with the representation of doubles (Swoosh, midsole and co-branded tongue). Both colorways were made with a combination of mesh and suede.

Originally the release was scheduled for early 2020, but with the COVID-19 pandemic not struggling to shut down, the release has been postponed.

The sacai x Nike Vapowaffle in “Red/White/Blue” and “Black/White” are expected to be released on Nike SNKRS on November 6th but there has been no confirmation from Nike. We’ll just have to wait.

The Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2021 Collection

The Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2021 Collection

Andrea Tuzio · 2 days ago · Style, Style

Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton‘s artistic director, set aside the extremes that had distinguished the Spring/Summer 2021 collection for the Pre-Spring 2021 collection, such as bright colors and brazen cuts for more essential and tidy looks using a color palette more in keeping with the seasonal transition period.

The inspiration of the entire collection seems to be the one related to the world of exploration, the monogram LV blends with a sort of foliage creating a camo effect on brown tones on many items in the collection.

The offer is really wide and diversified, the prints that characterize the pieces of the collection are also repeated on the accessories. Camouflage-like prints and golden finishes embellish the bags as well as the bucket hats and large berets.

Tailoring is another main theme of the collection wisely mixed with workwear elements.

Below you can take a look at the rest of the lookbook of Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Spring 2021 collection that will be released in a few months in boutiques around the world.
