It was 2004 when Edson Sabajo and Guillaume ‘Gee’ Schmidt opened their first Patta store in Amsterdam, who, in 2019, celebrates its 15th anniversary. Meanwhile, in 2016, they landed in London and yesterday, finally also in Milan.
To accompany this new opening, a celebratory limited edition t-shirt with the Patta’s classic script logo accompanied by the name of the city that hosts it, excited to have it.
This morning, in fact, in Galleria Unione 4, where the store is located, the first rows of fan have already been registered, a lot of people ready to grab some pieces of the collaboration with Air Jordan 7 and C.P. Company.
It was December 1980, when Shining was released in Italian theatres and the image of Jack Nicholson gone mad became the emblem of the cinema of those years. Now we are ready for his return.
The trailer for Doctor Sleep has been released in which we find a forty-year-old Danny Torrance, played by Ewan McGregor, still inwardly devoured by the terrifying memories of the Overlook Hotel.
Danny, who now lives in New Hampshire, tries in every way to lead a normal life forgetting almost his super abilities, but, at one point, he meets Abra, a girl with his own gifts, the famous shimmer. It is precisely when Abra needs his help to fight the followers of the “True Node” that Danny will have to start using his powers again, which will force him to reckon with his past.
Doctor Sleep will be released in cinemas on Halloween night, October 31, 2019.
Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn met at MICA in 2001 and have since started working together, becoming known as Jessie and Katey.
The two street artists specialize in large-sized murals and, over time, they realized that their art could not be limited to walls alone, so they began to paint floors, streets, stairs.
There are two fundamental characteristics of their works, the first is the engaging aspect and the second is the playful one. This result is achieved by creating gigantic patterns that take their cue from different and varied textures of fabrics.
When we try to give shape to the idea of creativity we could think of something very similar to the murals of Jessie and Katey, but you should know that they are not only the result of imagination and improvisation. All their artworks are born from a careful study of the place where they are to be made and their measurements and before painting the surface, the two artists make scale tests, to be sure of the final result.
No need to say that their works are especially appreciated by children, who enjoy playing with shapes and colors, but also manage to charm the older ones, indeed, are also appreciated by those who do not particularly like street art.
Milano Fashion Week Spring Summer 2019/2020 has just ended and, among the shows of the big fashion houses, we were pleasantly impressed by that of Marcelo Burlon County of Milan.
Before explaining to you what attracted our attention, we want to make a premise telling you what drove the designer to design a show like the one we saw.
At a time in Italy when the issue of immigration is very sensitive, he said: “We are living a very strange moment in Italy. They are closing the ports. They don’t want people coming here from Africa. They don’t want immigrants and they are afraid of diversity”. As we all know, Burlon also immigrated from immigrant parents, was born in Argentina and came to Italy at the age of 13. He added: “We are also encouraging the children who follow the brand to vote […] in this small world of fashion we try to be activists“. Most of the models who took part in the show were first-generation Italians of African origin. The show finished with Marcelo that crossed the catwalk raising his fist to the sky, sending a very strong message.
Hence the collaboration with Edoardo Tresoldi – artist, sculptor and set designer – famous for his installations made with wire mesh. For the occasion, he created a cathedral suspended from the ceiling, but which in the projectors resembled a rendered 3D hologram. The construction was broken down into vertical sections to create the impression of a multitude of doors through which all are welcome. In the base some lights, which changed color intermittently, they were projected towards the ceiling and met the white wire mesh, which was colored accordingly.
Present at the fashion show, the usual line-up of music and fashion personalities and the participation of 300 local children who were able to participate by participating in an online raffle. They were all wearing County of Milan’s winged tees.
The Paris Air Show is the world’s largest trade fair for the aerospace industry, which this year becomes even more majestic thanks to the participation of LEGO‘s X-Wing space fighter.
For the 2018 edition of the Bugatti Chiron, which was also fully functional, the giant built the Rebel fighter jet seen for the first time in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. 2,500 hours of work, 10 meters long, 9 wide and weighing 3 tons. It consists of 1,584,000 LEGO bricks and it took 3 months to complete.
LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Rebel will make its debut at the Paris Air Show 2019 from today until June 23. Fans of bricks around or dying to see this mega toy – because this time it’s not working unlike the Bugatti – will not miss this opportunity.
