Starting from movies like Lords of Dogtown and Ken Park, we try to investigate not only the skater subculture but also a deep transitional moment like boys’ Youthhood, portraying our subjects in their bedrooms, an intimate place where they don’t struggle to be part of a group or a community and a place where they feel comfortable to show us other aspects of their characters like vulnerability and fragility.
Swan is a project born from the research and archiving of military iconic clothes. Used as initial reference for the development of the collection, the clothes are then decontextualized and placed within the aesthetic of the underground skate culture, born in California between the 70s and the 80s.
