Oakley Launches the “One Obsession” Campaign to Inspire You to Live Yours
By Megan Munro ( Complex mag Uk)
Oakley’s new “One Obsession” campaign is an initiative to live their obsession, aiming to invite and inspire people to join the brand’s global network of athlete ambassadors in living out their passions. Oakley pretty much has the sports eyewear game on lock, with skiing, skating, cycling, and countless other sports all turning to the brand for their eyewear needs.
Oakley has more than 450 athletes on their roster, including names like Eric Koston, Gabriel Medina, Mark Cavendish, and Matt Kemp, who all live out their obsessions in their daily lives with Oakley, and the movement aims to encourage fans to share and celebrate their physical places of obsession around the world. It could be a mountain peak, a suburban garage, or a public handrail.
Oakley will reward the #LiveYours contributions with surprise experiences and access to athletes who inspire them. The global campaign launched this week, and runs throughout the year, for more information and to get involved
Lo sapevate che sulla neve c’è una luce “buona”, formata da alcuni colori a cui l’occhio è molto sensibile e che permette di vedere i particolari, e una luce “cattiva” che, al contrario, riduce i contrasti provocando l’effetto “luce piatta”? Le lenti Prizm™ controllano la luce che arriva all’occhio e regolano con estrema precisione i colori, enfatizzando i “buoni” ed escludendo i “cattivi”. Il risultato è un’eccezionale percezione dei dettagli e una visione straordinariamente nitida.
Prizm™ è un’altra tecnologia game-changer uscita dai laboratori Oakley, frutto di 15 anni di lavoro e sperimentazione sul campo con i grandi campioni dell’Oakley team. La differenza rispetto al passato? Ce la spiegaLinsday Vonn, quattro volte vincitrice della coppa del mondo sci alpino per la squadra americana. “Ho un’arma segreta, le Prizm. Con queste nuove lenti riesco a vedere le buche, le gobbe e i piccoli dettagli nella neve che normalmente non sarei in grado di distinguere”. La tecnologia Prizm™ garantisce un’eccellente visione nell’arco di tutta la giornata, riducendo la necessità di sostituire le lenti con il cambiare delle condizioni di luce.
Oakley propone le Prizm™ in tre versioni nella collezione di maschere da neve per quest’inverno: Black Iridium in condizioni di luminosità intensa, Jade Iridium con sole e nuvole e Rose in caso di neve e cielo coperto.

La maggior parte degli articoli sono progettati in casa presso la loro sede, ma alcuni paesi detengono disegni esclusivi rilevanti per il loro mercato. Oakley attualmente detiene oltre 600 brevetti per occhiali, materiali e attrezzi performance.
Oakley fu fondata da James Jannard nel 1975 nel suo garage con un investimento iniziale di $ 300. Il nome “Oakley” è venuto dal cane di Jannard, un Setter Inglese. Jannard ha iniziato vendendo quello che lui chiamava ‘The Oakley Grip’ dal retro della sua auto alle gare di motocross. Le sue manopole da moto erano differenti dalle altre disponibili al momento, poiché utilizzavano un materiale brevettato noto come ‘Unobtanium’, una creazione di Jannard. Il materiale viene ancora usato per fare gli earsocks sugli occhiali Oakley e i naselli. Oakley ha continuato a produrre guanti, manopole, gomitiere e occhiali per la BMX.
I primi occhiali da sole Oakley furono i Factory Pilot Eyeshades. Successivamente si aggiunsero gli Oakley Frogskin, uno stile di occhiali da sole casual, che al momento sono gli occhiali del brand più venduti ed apprezzati.
Oakley ad oggi è uno dei Brand più apprezzati e diffusi al mondo, lo si può definire un colosso a livello mondiale di vendita di occhiali da sole in tutto il globo.
Gli occhiali da sole Oakley sono anche usati da alcuni dai maggiori personaggi sportivi del momento tra cui Valentino Rossi e Marc Marquez per citare la Moto GP e Fernando Alonso e Sebastian Vettel invece per citare la Formula 1, infatti la Oakley ha lanciato varie linee di occhiali ispirati a questi grandi personaggi e ai loro rispettivi sport.
Kjøre project: handmade Italiano per uno stile tutto nordico
Pellami di qualità, pietra trattata e sughero sono alcuni dei materiali da cui nascono i prodotti Kjøre Project, brand italiano dal nome norvegese dal sapore nordico, minimale e ruvido come i fiordi del mar del nord.
Ogni prodotto è realizzato artigianalmente con la massima cura e richiama un sapore vintage.
Un’idea che già da molto tempo era nella mente di Luca, partita con la semplice idea di realizzare valigette porta pc e successivamente ampliata con l’aiuto di un amico nonché ex socio; costantemente coadiuvati da esperti e stilisti del settore che non hanno mai fatto mancare il loro supporto tecnico.
Il Brand è nato per gioco e senza aver prefissato alcun obiettivo, un gioco che però sta avendo successo e sta riscontrando gli apprezzamenti del pubblico.
Ed è così che Luca, con l’aiuto di alcuni amici ed un’impiegata speciale, nonché mamma, che porta avanti la contabilità aziendale, giunto quasi al termine dei suoi studi in economia all’Università di Verona, ha deciso di trasformare questo gioco in un lavoro vero e proprio, mettendoci tutto l’amore e la passione che in questi mesi ha dedicato al progetto, scontrandosi spesso con chi era mosso esclusivamente da un input economico.
La grinta e la determinazione di Luca, l’hanno portato a presentare il suo Kjore Project al Pitti Uomo, la principale fiera italiana dedicata al mercato internazionale, ricevendo grandi consensi.
Il marchio si pone in una categoria ibrida tra concept-stores, minimal-design e negozi che strizzano l’occhio al workwear, denim e categorie affini ma anche al moderno street-wear scandinavo.
Tutti i negozi vengono serviti in tempi medi di 24/48h nel mondo.
La collezione Kjøre Project è fortemente caratterizzata da uno stile Nordico e pulito, prodotti moderni ma che rispettano il passato, una consistenza e capacità di durata garantita per anni.
Manufatti che rimarranno inalterati nelle loro qualità fisiche ma che grazie alla loro preziosa pelle rivestita con oli naturali saranno continuamente in evoluzione nel loro aspetto e stile.
L’ultima creazione poi, in termini d’innovazione assoluta è stata la linea di covers presentata a Firenze durante Pitti Immagine Uomo 2014: sughero naturale, pietra, e carata conciata, totalmente fatte a mano e di produzione Italiana, uniche nel loro genere e stile.
I materiali, ed in particolare i pellami, sono legati ad un processo di concia sviluppato in tempi antichi, con un processo lento e laborioso che dipende dall’abilità e dalla maestria dei conciatori Italiani, appassionati e impegnati nel loro lavoro.
Pellami naturali che arrivano dalla lontana Nuova Zelanda, ed i quali invece di secchezza e screpolature sviluppano la propria patina gradualmente, cambiando aspetto e assumendo il carattere del suo utente nel tempo; cicatrici, graffi, vene e le rughe che danno ogni pezzo della loro collezione il suo carattere unico non levigato o lucidato prima dell’uso.
Hanno scelto appositamente di non coprire le piccole imperfezioni con sigillanti vernici o finiture artificiali e sono consapevoli di come i nostri materiali appaiono dopo le 12, 18 e 24 mesi di uso pesante.
La lavorazione è interamente handmade ed il loro team di progettisti e artigiani produce ogni pezzo di Kjøre Project a mano, utilizzando lo stesso stile e gli stessi strumenti che sono stati utilizzati per creare la pelletteria per anni, non esistono fustelle in acciaio ma solo dei semplici cartoni di riferimento che utilizzano i modellisti impegnati in questo lavoro, difficile da credere ma chiunque voglia lo può vedere di persona, le loro porte sono aperte a tutti.
Qui di seguito un breve video di presentazione del Brand:
jeans indossato ma consumato, il miglior modo per indossare perfettamente i jeans e di consumarli in modo naturale. Consumati danno sempre un tocco di originalita come la storia del jeans ci insegna poiche è nato per i lavoratori nel tempo si è evoluto a capo per la città fashion e non solo. Il nostro obiettivo è quello di avere brand con una tradizione secolare, con prodotti realizzati a mano, di qualita e con un buon prezzo.
Lorenzo Cherubinimeglio conosciuto con lo pseudonimo di “Jovanotti”, ha pubblicato da poco il suo tredicesimo lavoro in studio “Lorenzo 2015 cc”, ufficialmente in vendita dal 24 febbraio 2015, l’uscita del disco è stata anticipata dall’uscita, a Dicembre, del singolo estratto ” Sabato ”.
L’artista è in attività dal 1987, attraversando parecchie fasi storiche della musica Italiana, è stato uno dei pionieri del Rap Italiano, passando anche per altri vari generi e scrivendo sempre canzoni dai temi ricchi ma al tempo stesso spensierati. Inizia ad evolversi musicalmente verso la metà degli anni ’90 iniziando ad inserire nei suoi testi temi molto più seriosi e di impegno sociale e politico.
Arriva ai giorni nostri con all’attivo 23 album pubblicati (tra lavori in studio, live e raccolte) proprio lo scorso Febbraio, è uscito fuori il suo ultimo lavoro già citato in precedenza “Lorenzo 2015 cc”.
Lorenzo 2015 cc contiene tutto e il contrario di tutto, e questo è da una parte un gran pregio, Jovanotti all’ennesima potenza, dall’altro un difetto, Jovanotti all’ennesima potenza. In questo album è presente tutto il suo stile, tantissimo, quello, riconoscibile anche da un non fan sfegatato dell’artista. Data la tracklist di ben 30 canzoni, si potrebbe pensare ad un album pesante e molto difficile da mandare giù, ma non è questo il caso. L’ascolto dell’album fila liscio che è un piacere e si alterna tra ballad e brani molto più energici carichi un una bella energia positiva.
Che c’è da dire? Niente! L’unica cosa per comprendere questo album è ascoltarlo!
kjøre Project, Over fifty years has passed since our founding and our commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear, now a little group of this designers team and craftspeople as well as skilled laborers has founded kjøre project, creating a new line of accessories, characterized with the Nordic style, using only rough and strongest leather, but incredibly soft.
As a Scandinavian brand of a Norwegian name with of supreme Italian raw materials, this continental element is one that touches every aspect of the company with purpose. With a narrow focus, constant learning, agile processes and creative thinking, we can continually improve the solutions and insights we share.
At kjøre project , we strive to create modern products that respect the past. All the styles in the Heritage collection are designed and built just as they were fifty, sixty and even over eighty years ago and are all made using premium leather, totally handcrafted to the specifications which made each style timeless when they were first introduced. In the end, all of these elements combine beautifully to evoke a charming elegance that is distinctly kjøre project ‘s own. Our tanning process was first developed in ancient times, the best of these stiff, are set aside for our use and each batch and color reacts differently.
This is a slow process dependent on the skill and artistry of passionate and committed tanners. It is the careful attention of dedicated tanners and their refusal to compromise on materials and the time necessary to achieve the desired result that differentiates our tanned leather from all other leathers.
Instead of peeling and cracking our leather develops its own patina, changing gradually in appearance and taking on the character of its user over time.
The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles that give each piece in our collection its unique character have not been sanded down or buffed. We specifically chose not to cover minor imperfections with paint sealers or artificial finishes, using only clear dyes in a range of colors that enhance rather than conceal the beautiful character of our leather. We take careful note of how our materials look after 12, and 24 months of heavy use. Even now when people think that machines and technology can only make products, genuine leather still can only be worked by hand.
This is why genuine leather products made by highly skilled craftsmen are enjoyable to look at and provide a great deal of warmth.
People never get tired of possessing these fine items; our team of designers and craftspeople produced each kjøre project piece by hand, utilizing the same style of tools that have been used to create leather goods for years.
We blend classic techniques with modern mechanics to achieve the best possible treatment within each step of production, we embarked on a quest for perfection – perfection in design and perfection in craftsmanship.

solovair shoes 1881 made in uk, The county of Northamptonshire, England, has long been renowned for its boots and shoe making; the village of Wollaston just outside of Wellingborough is no exception. Until the latter part of the 19th century, shoes and boots were normally made in homes by individual shoemakers, who were paid only for the work they had ready when the collector came with his barrow to the door. Remuneration was poor and there was little security of employment.
In an attempt to impose some regularity of income, in 1881 five men living in Wollaston banded together to form a co-operative (a company owned and run by the people working in it), called the Northamptonshire Productive Society (NPS). Their premises were based in a dove house located in Thrift Street, Wollaston, and NPS was locally referred to as ‘the Duffers’. Luck was with them from the outset as they managed to secure an order for army boots from the Government, an order which would sustain them for the first year.
As industrialisation spread in England during the late nineteenth Century, demand in England and abroad for high-quality boots steadily increased. Accordingly, NPS enjoyed rapid growth and by the turn of the previous century NPS had grown to 80 employees. Consequently, NPS moved to a larger purpose-built factory on South Street, which although modified and expanded, they occupy to this day.
Footwear has been made at NPS with various different construction methods, including riveted and stitched, stuck-on, vulcanised and more recently Goodyear welted which is now used in all our shoe production. In the 1950’s Austrian Dr. Maerten (subsequently anglicised to Dr. Marten) and his associate Mr Funck developed a now famous air cushion sole. R. Griggs Group Ltd., who owned the rights to manufacture footwear with this technology, sought out the best local factories to manufacture footwear using this sole. NPS was an obvious choice and in 1959 the first English pair of sample boots with air-cushioned soles was welted in the NPS factory. For 35 years NPS produced Solovair (Sole-of-Air) boots and shoes under license, which were sold under the name “Dr Martens by Solovair”.
Times change and NPS no longer produces boots and shoes under license, but we have maintained our independence and high-quality standards. NPS patented the name Solovair in 1995 and our latest range of footwear not only maintains our original manufacturing quality, but our products have been enhanced with a new ‘Soft Suspension’ sole that improves the comfort and durability.
The famous production standards of NPS has secured Solovair a reputation with retailers and discerning customers, as a premium soft suspension product. Rather than have a continuous production line, which we believe offers the operative no time to notice and correct any errors, NPS is organised in areas according to distinct stages of production. Each pair is only passed from one area to another when the respective operative is satisfied they are ready. In this respect, there is a far slimmer chance that an unsatisfactory shoe or boot will result at the end of the production process. In effect it is a continuous quality control process not employed by many other factories.
NPS continue to remain true to their ideals, combining over 130 years of tradition, the latest technology and materials, in order to produce the best quality shoes and boots. To maintain this undisputed quality, our products will always be hand-made from start (‘clicking’) to ‘finishing’ in the UK.
onitsuka tiger mod. COLORADO 85 by Onitska Tiger was designed with plushfort and style in mind. The upper features a fitting premium suede, mesh, and leather build for a fresh look and durability. This kick features the original silhouette from the 80’s, giving the Colorado Eighty-Five a great old-school look. Other features include fabric lining with a removable Sockliner, flex canals at the forefoot forfort and flexibility, and a rubber outsole.

style or not style?….You can learn masculine elegance ? Probably not : it is above all an innate gift . However, unlike the women , the men’s clothing is much less influenced by fashion and has been codified : not rules but feeree ways of interpreting certain clothes or situation according to accepted practices . Icons in this style are Gianni Agnelli, Beau Brummel , Andrew , Duke of Aosta , Raul Gardini, napoletan sartorialist, english style and many other characters over the years, very important Over time we have developed many derivations of style with various derivations very street, old materials together with those of last teconologia , such as Japan Japan began to emulate Western fashion during the middle of the nineteenth century. By the beginning of the twenty-first century was altered into what is known today as ‘ street fashion ‘ . The term ‘ street fashion ‘ is used to describe a particular trend of fashion where the wearer customizes outfits them by adopting a mixture of current and traditional trends . Such clothes are generally home-made with the use of material purchased at stores . Japanese street fashion includes simultaneous movements of fashion very different at any given time . For example, the Harajuku Girls have a street fashion : Japanese Anime is their way of dressing and serves them to show their personality and their love for Japanimation and Manga . Street fashion is an English term used to describe fashion that is inspired by and appropriates trends arising from clothing street . It is a personal fashion , which expresses their personality so trendy and cool . Street fashion is generally associated with youth culture and is most often seen in major urban centers . Most major youth subcultures have been characterized by a particular style of clothing. Unfortunately, today we have lost the elegance or style in favor of a seemingly too good especially if luxury convinced that having a well may be a hallmark , and I quote this example : (source fb Valeria Folino )
“Passeggiata domenicale rilassante con un amico. Incontriamo un suo conoscente. Presentazioni. Mentre stringo la mano, non posso non notare un pataccone di Rolex orribile quasi quanto la sua pochette… Ma, del resto, oggi con miei occhiali fluo e’ meglio che mi stia zitta! Non ricordo neanche il suo nome ma, dopo dieci minuti, spara, evidentemente, la sua ‘carta vincente’: per i suoi trent’anni andrà qualche giorno col fratello a New York a luglio… New York e’ meravigliosa – esordisce – e prosegue descrivendo il bellissimo hotel di design dove alloggerà: perché io amo l’arte moderna… – incalza lui. Ah!…si accende una lucina nel mio cervello o, più che altro, una piccola bajiuor…in mezzo al buio di venti minuti di noiosissima conversazione, forse qualcosa si può salvare: andrai al MoMa, ovviamente? – ribatto io. Dunque…no, un attimo…la sua risposta merita di essere degnamente virgolettata : “mmmmhh… A NY ci sono tanti bei ristoranti italiani di livello, non voglio ingurgitare schifezze…”. E, dopo aver ‘ingurgitato’ io questa ‘ schifezza’ …sorrido, stringo la mano, lancio un ‘ ultima occhiata alla sua pochette e penso che i miei occhiali fluo …non sono poi così male… Se servono per nascondere eventuali “espressioni” del viso.”

rip curl surf style is a The year: 1969. A man called Armstrong is about to walk on the moon. In Australia, surfing is at a curious stage of its development. The “short board revolution” of 1967 has created a frenzy of experimentation in surfboard design and surfing technique. In the cool climate of Victoria, sanity prevails in design and technique, if not in the temperaments of the surfers. The cold, always a great leveller, has created a hardy breed of surfer who has no time for the hoopla and hype of the glitter beach capitals of the world. And by 1969 these like-minded souls have begun to gravitate towards the equally no-frills seaside town of Torquay, just a couple of kilometres away from Bells Beach, home of some of the most challenging waves in Australia. And it is into this environment that Doug “Claw” Warbrick and Brian “Sing Ding” Singer decide to pitch their fledgling surf company, Rip Curl. And yes, it will be called Rip Curl. Rip Curl Surfboards did well in a highly competitive market which had opened up in response to the revolution in design. Pioneers like Gordon Woods and Barry Bennett in Sydney and George Rice in Victoria had been joined by hundreds of wide-eyed hopefuls operating, like Rip Curl, out of garages and tool sheds.In many cases enthusiasm and innovation overshadowed technical expertise and quality, but Rip Curl concentrated on producing a small number of functional surfcraft for local waves. In 1970, however, Warbrick and Singer made the decision which changes forever the nature of their fledgling company. Looking at the essential needs of their fellow surfers in cold-water Victoria, they see that one – a board to ride – is being serviced by too many companies, while the other – a wetsuit to keep out the cold – is being serviced by only two, one of whom makes wetsuits for divers and has only a marginal commercial interest in surfing. Rip Curl took over an old house in Torquay and the partners made a small investment in a pre-World War II sewing machine. They put together a crew of locals and went into production, cutting out the rubber on the floor and handing the pieces to an over-worked and underpaid machinist. By today’s standards, the prototype Rip Curl wetsuits were primitive, but they differed from others on the market in that they evolved through interaction with surfers. The people who ran the company were – and still are – the test pilots. There can be no more direct line of communication… A couple of odd figures arguing in a garage… Two young men, and hardy souls at that, because it is the dead of winter in a cold part of the country, but they are both wearing thongs – good old Aussie flip flops – although one of them has made a concession to the climate by wearing thick football socks with the rubber. They call themselves “Sing Ding” and “Claw”, and surrounding them are foam surfboard blanks and tins of nasty chemicals. It is not a safe environment and if tempers flare any more the whole lot might go up in flames. “Well,” says the young man with gingery hair and a moustache (“Sing Ding”): “I reckon it’s a bloody stupid name, but I’ll run it past my kids and see what they think.” The other man (“Claw”) jumps up and down on the spot like a demented jack-in-the-box, screaming: “It’s a great name! You rip the curl! Get it? The grommets will love it!” Continua a leggere rip curl surf style
