Ronit Baranga sculpts the insatiable hunger of society

Ronit Baranga sculpts the insatiable hunger of society

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

There are no more limits. We live in a society in which we always want to go further. The necessary is never enough. Too much is never enough. 
We live with an insatiable sense of hunger, which we are insatiable but we can’t, we can’t do without. 

With one of her latest works, the Israeli ceramic artist Ronit Baranga wanted to show us this insatiable hunger, turning it into something concrete and serving it almost literally on silver plates. 
All Things Sweet and Painful” is the name of her series of creations: what from afar looks like a table set with every delicacy, from fruit tarts to cream-covered cakes, approaching it reveals itself as a small theater of horrors. 

Every single object comes to life, the cups walk on human fingers, the sweets are studded with mouths that scream at the top of their lungs. 

The table is a microcosm, inhabited with irresistible temptations.

The work of Ronit Baranga attracts and repels us at the same time, we need everything on the table although everything hides a sinful and evil side and this makes us feel uncomfortable. We don’t want to, but we keep watching. The question is: “Can you resist?”

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 apparel collection in collaboration between BMW and KITH will be available from October 23rd in New York brand flagships and shop-in-shops around the world.

The new colorways of the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle

The new colorways of the sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle

Andrea Tuzio · 2 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.
