the denim issue

Spring/Summer 2016: denim, always and irresistibly. Therefore, we interpreted in its infinite expressions this very old fabric, sometimes marked as the wrinkled face of an old man: we listened to his voice, a little hoarse as typical of someone who smoked too much or has spent too much time outdoors and we found it new and surprising.

Or it becomes rational, deconstructionist, cerebral, postmodern as in the case of Ports 1961,…

LA NUOVA INTERPRETAZIONE DEL BLACK&WHITE DI MURPHY & NYE One of the strongest Spring/Summer 2016 trends is, without a doubt, the comeback of monochrome. Murphy & Nye interprets the trend with wide black stripes on the white background of cargo technical shorts and with the black edges, wrist straps, elbow details of the white hooded sport jacket. Black and white also for the accessories like, for example, the ergonomic ‘Luff’ rucksacks. The brand presents a great selection of everyday looks inspired by the sea and yet perfect for any urban situation. Una delle tendenze più significative della P/E 2016 è il revival del black&white, un tema interpretato da Murphy & Nye con bande nere su bermuda tecnici bianchi stile cargo e con bordi neri e dettagli sui polsi e gomiti del giubbotto…

form follows function

PERFORMANCE AD ALTISSIMO LIVELLO PER LA NUOVA COLLEZIONE ALLTERRAIN A tightly edited colour palette of bright yellow and slate grey for a great selection of highly performative exquisitely manufactured garments. Each piece is characterised by the use of technical fabrics, such as a three layer feather-light, superbly waterproof and breathable Gridilite material, and hi-tech technical features, such as the Streamline Technology› that controls the water flow on the surface of the garments. This is, in a nutshell, the latest collection by ALLTERRAIN, the premium leisurewear range launched in 2012 by Descente. The aesthetic philosophy of the range is firmly based on the “form follows function” approach. Therefore, everything in every single piece has a specific reason and a precise function related to functionality and performance rather than having a decorative purpose. Since…
