Slam Jam X And Wander, a collabo inspired by mountaineering

Anna Cardaci · 1 month ago · Style

Slam Jam, founded by Luca Benini in 1989, and the famous Japanese brand And Wander, launched in spring/summer 2011, which combines the elegance of the Parisian brands with the mountain atmosphere of Japan, have created a limited edition collection that will be available only in the shops of the two brands.

The collection created presents clothing that refers to the colors used by Slam Jam including white, red and black, as well as the use of fabrics Polartec ®. The launch will take place tomorrow, Saturday, December 14, 2019 at the Slam Jam store in via Lanza 1, from 7pm to 9pm and will be accompanied by a tailor-made setting, an exclusive preview of a short film directed by Sean Vegezzi and Alpine style refreshments with the Zabov Bombardino and the Ovomaltine.

The line presents a total rock look created by drawing inspiration from the famous Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner, originally from Bressanone who has climbed several times the highest peak of the Himalayan chain: Everest.
Thanks to Reinhold’s knowledge of the Himalayan landscape and that of the Dolomites, he was able to create a dialogue that inspired the collaboration between Slam Jam and And Wander.

Bowl Head, the new sculpture by IUTER x Pleasures

Bowl Head, the new sculpture by IUTER x Pleasures

Anna Cardaci · 1 month ago · Style

The Milanese streetwear brand IUTER, born in 2002, and Pleasures, another similar brand founded in Los Angeles in 2015 by Alex James, have worked together to create a ceramic: the “Bowl Head“. This represents a man’s head that has been designed, sculpted and made entirely in Italy by a selected master craftsman and can be used in many ways. At the height of the head, a red cavity has been created that can be used as an incense holder, a pocket emptier, a keychain or to place any type of small object in it.

The Bowl Head is available on the official websites of the two brands and at the IUTER Store in Milan, Corso di Porta Ticinese, 48.

IUTER, which has always created this kind of artifacts that can be purchased in stores or on e-commerce, this time decided to create a limited edition of only one hundred pieces. Under the Bowl Head is the inscription “When you’re in Los Angeles, stay in Italy“, always used for collaborations with the realities of the Californian city.

Press at Work, Matteo Pressamariti’s new collection

Press at Work, Matteo Pressamariti’s new collection

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Style

We went to discover Press at Work, the new collection by Matteo Pressamariti, a young designer who, in addition to explaining it to us, told us about his career and told us about his future goals. Find out more in our interview! 

Tell us about yourself, your background and what you did before you started your brand. 

Press at Work Matteo Pressamariti | Collater.al

I come from Imperia, in Liguria, a small provincial town, a very closed place where nobody talks about fashion. Despite this, however, you can get to do a job in this field. Personally, I got there thanks to my former girlfriend who informed me of the existence of the IED. So, after high school, I moved, enrolled and, after three years, I graduated with one of the best projects, parading to the final event. 
Later, while working for a shoe brand, I won a national competition that allowed seven guys to develop their own brand. So I started, I went around Italy looking for someone to produce my creations.

Unfortunately with the organizers, it didn’t go well, but by then I had already started everything well and I decided to continue alone and start the brand.
Today I’m in my third season.

We are here for the launch of your collection “Press at work”. Tell us what it is about and to what it means this name. 

More than a new collection, it is a project that has been going on for three seasons now. I started with the idea of making a leather shoe but giving it a more avant-garde face that a few years ago was going very well. The basic idea was inspired by the concept of work, but if in the beginning, it was that of the farmer, this time I was inspired by the work in the factory. 
In practice, I take inspiration from everything around me and a city like Milan, full of buildings and construction sites inspires me a lot.

With Press at Work, I wanted to make a younger project, going back to the ’90s and the first approach I had with design when I made up the mopeds trying to make them special. As a boy, I had a garage where I worked with all my friends and alongside my father did the hardware, working with aluminum. Aluminum is a recurrent material in my creations today, and for me, it is a symbol of manual work. I’m also inspired by the work shoes that have a steel toecap inside, that’s why I took this element outside. 
From the SS20 the collection has taken another point of view, focused on the reinterpretation of old shoes, taking the shapes of the 1930s and adapting them to modern ones, using materials such as nylon and leather. I wanted to play with these contrasts: the leather mixed with nylon, which meet and blend into my vision of shoe.

It’s been over a year since your first “Mother Teresa” collection. Has anything changed since then? Your taste, your research or even your creative process? 

Certainly, for the better, I try to improve myself, to continue to learn anything. It is also a job that leads you to have many human relationships and teaches you how to manage them. 

You are 28 years old and you have been crowned by Vogue Italia one of the next big things in the sector. What advice would you give to all those who want to undertake or have already undertaken a path in the world of fashion? 

To only do this job if you’re in love with it. If not, I do not believe who can have the strength to go on every season because it is a job that changes you that you form and you have to be willing to change with him. Also because, in the field of fashion, staying on your own ideas is not the right move. 
The key is to be able to change over time. 

We are very curious to discover this collection, but we are also curious to know what your future projects will be and where you want to go. 

The goal is to establish me with an Italian footwear brand, like, for example, Diadora. 
In the future, I will continue this classic discourse by putting the sneakers and that world aside a bit, because although it’s a world that gives me the right stimuli to go on after a while you’re just bored of sneakers. 
Also, I’m a guy who always wants to do something different and that’s why my research is to look at everything that’s already there and do what’s missing.

Ciao Biella, the collection of One Block Down x FILA

Ciao Biella, the collection of One Block Down x FILA

Anna Cardaci · 1 month ago · 4640, Style

One Block Down, a retail reality recognized for a distinctive mix of nostalgic sportswear brands and contemporary lifestyle, in collaboration with FILA, the Italian brand from Biella, have created a capsule collection of clothing and footwear called “Ciao Biella“. This is not the first time that a retail store has collaborated with sports brands. Each garment was created to celebrate Italian sportswear. The name is a play on words between the way to say hello to “Ciao Bella” and the name of the city where FILA was born.

The shoes in the collection are the FILA DSTR 97 and have been designed in two different colors: white and black. The upper of each pair is divided into two halves: the lower one is made of leather with the logo FILA and the words “Ciao Biella” and the upper half is made of canvas with a leopard pattern. There are also a fender tab, two-tone laces and a sports sole that embellish the shoe. These two parts are divided by a strip in which the name of the sports brand is written several times.
As far as the clothing part is concerned, several items were produced, including sweatshirts, t-shirts, trousers, and anoraks. Each of these is in the same colors as black and white or leopard print – like the windbreaker. Obviously, the garments are also marked Ciao Biella.

The collection One Block Down x FILA “Ciao Biella” will be released on December 18, in exclusive One Block Down e-commerce and in the official stores of Milan and Rome.

TENET, the new film by Christopher Nolan

TENET, the new film by Christopher Nolan

Giulia Guido · 4 weeks ago · Art

We’ve been waiting for him for three years, since the release of his latest film Dunkirk and now he’s finally here. Yesterday the official trailer of Christopher Nolan‘s latest pharaonic feat was released, which, as his films are used to, gave us an indescribable rush of adrenaline, but raised a thousand questions.

TENET, which will be released in cinemas on July 17, 2020, promises to be a scientific thriller in which there will be a good dose of action, a world conflict at the gates and the inevitable time swings to which Nolan has become accustomed.
Two international spies are sent out to stop ‘World War III’ at the hands of a mysterious threat, using the unique technology of time-reversal” so cites the officially released plot.

The two main characters are played by John David Washington and Robert Pattinson are joined by an exceptional cast including Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine, two veterans of Nolan’s films.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the afterlife.
