This week we explore the theme CLASSICS.
Not the classics that we believe to be boring and dated, but rather contemporary icons. We’ll start with AN INSTANT CLASSIC, a fashion video by Studio Fantastico, directed by Pietro Cocco. For the CULTURE section we share a mixtape by IAMSEIFE filled with the beats the defined his musical career. We broke down the idea of classics by hosting a roundtable discussion with three illustrators and a typographer for DESIGN. Andrea Tuzio, our sports man, provides us with a story of the “team that (almost) never lose”, and finally we present our readers with a brief overview of Hotel Okura in Tokyo for the TRAVEL section.

This week we talk about second chances.
To do that we revisit the sporting life of Shaun Livingstone, the athlete who lived twice. We then take a look at Dorsett Shepherds Bush: a luxurious cinema that became an elegant hotel. From London we head to New York to a little island south of Manhattan that houses art installations based on reusability and sustainability.
For the STYLE section we interviewed Maurizio Donadi, owner of Atelier&Repairs. Finally, for DESIGN, we will let you delve into the conquest of outer space by Blue Origin.

This week we talk about tools: what tools are needed in anticipation of a trip? Did you know that there’s a tool that can cure anxiety? The strain of knives may seem like a trivial tool, but it is essential to the conservation of the knife blade; an object of beauty and functional design. We interviewed Matilda McQuaid, curator of an exhibition based on the evolution of the tools from the birth of the world nowadays.
