It is from the most daring combinations that the best works are born and the renewed collaboration between Mizuno and FUTUR confirms it. The famous Japanese company specialized in sportswear has put its technology in the hands of the designers of the French brand, creating a capsule collection in which the garments and shoes of the Running Performance line are reinterpreted in a streetwear key. 

The highlight of this collection is a brand new version of the iconic Wave Prophecy 8. This model, born as a running shoe, acquires an original and original look making them suitable for everyday use and not only for fans of running. 

The Wave Prophecy 8 capsules of Mizuno x FUTUR will be available in two different colors, one white and one black, both characterized by reflective and iridescent elements, the strip of fabric on the top of the tongue and the classic holes in the sole. 

In addition to the sneakers, the collection includes a series of garments and technical accessories suitable for running, but not only: a waterproof and breathable jacket, a set of caps, a pair of windproof gloves and a balaclava.

Mizuno x FUTUR will be available from November 16th

Stüssy, the new Chapter Store opens in Milan

Stüssy, the new Chapter Store opens in Milan

Collater.al Contributors · 1 month ago · Style

This week the streetwear brand Stüssy announced, through its official page on Instagram, the opening of the new Chapter Store on November 16, in Milan.
This news comes after last week’s opening of the last Chapter Store in Hong Kong adding another location to the company’s international network after London, Los Angeles, Seoul and Amsterdam. Like the Hong Kong one, this space was conceived by the W&PA design studio.

The design of the store will follow the continuous evolution of the retail mode on which the brand is based. The retail shop will still be in line with the existing ones, but at the same time new features will be introduced. The aim is to combine different eras of modern design, from early modernism to postmodernism through contemporary hybrids, to arrive at something that seems like a fresh and innovative breath brought directly from California.

The opening of the store will be accompanied by the sale of two exclusive
t-shirts costumed only for the city of Milan. In the first one, next to the brand “Stüssy” will be represented the symbol that identifies the city of Milan, and no, we are not talking about the San Siro stadium, but about the Madonnina. All gold, of course.
On the back, however, is kept minimal with the words “STÜSSY MILANO CHAPTER” printed on the back of the neck followed by the address of the store: C.so di Porta Ticinese 103, 20123, Milan.
In the second one there is an illustration of a pillar that supports above the words “STÜSSY MILANO” and the address of the place that is shown below.

To inaugurate the store, a party will be held at Spazio Maiocchi the day before, on November 15th, with the support of Slam Jam.

KIDSOFBROKENFUTURE, the new Future Renaissance collection

KIDSOFBROKENFUTURE, the new Future Renaissance collection

Collater.al Contributors · 4 weeks ago · Style

The fashion brand KIDSOFBROKENFUTURE born in Milan from Marta Sanchez and Elbio Bonsaglio – as we talked about here – is one of the most innovative in the industry in recent years.
It is mainly aimed at kids, or millennials and the Z generation, who want to build a different future than the one for which they are intended.
During the month of September, the brand launched its new Future Renaissance collection, which can be purchased on the official website and in selected stores.

The autumn-winter collection ’19/’20 approaches art with strong references to the Renaissance period that goes from 1300 to 1600.
This collection was created in collaboration with Nirvana Kamal, who provided the graphics for the development of the garments. The textures of the garments are made through a collage of Renaissance works opposed to symbols of modern/contemporary culture, obtaining a reinterpretation of the connection between the past and the present. There are many references to very famous works of art such as Magritte’s Lovers, Michelangelo’s David and more modern elements such as the film Pulp Fiction.

A point in favor of the brand is the importance given to the ecological aspect so much so as to use both organic cotton and nylon obtained from the recycling of plastic recovered in the Oceans. Each product approaches different styles and worlds and conveys different messages but they have the same ideal: the emancipation of young people and at the same time a strong provocation towards society.
The messages that want to be conveyed revolve around the responsibilities that we have in life, the idea that everything is achieved with our commitment, the identity, and uniqueness of each person and living with courage our diversity making it a point of strength.
The collection includes a wide range of products, each of which focuses on a specific theme.
The sweatshirts and jackets embody the pure and ethereal Renaissance beauty that meets with the eroticism and sensuality present in recent years. These two points of view merge to become a new icon of modern times while in t-shirts and trousers the concept is that of religion and sensuality. The brand’s collections are divided into three phases called “stages”. Future Renaissance belongs to the first and deals with the theme of denunciation and social criticism to all attitudes of inconsistency and indifference that have had a devastating effect on our past and that affect our daily future.
In the other two phases, the kids are given an important role, that is, the task of distorting this scenario through a revolution that can allow us not to be constantly conditioned by our past to better live our present and create a community that can then reach, at the end of this path, an awareness and a maturity.

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 · 2 weeks 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.
