Isola Marras – Be Rock

Antonio Marras wanted to go to England to play in a rock band, maybe win a MTV Mucis Award and reenect the Beatles famous cover walking on the zebra lines of Abbey Road.

Fashion Week Soundtrack

My fashion week soundtrack it isn’t just about the music but takes in consideration the involvement of the fashion world into the music industry.

Byblos Milano Past Vs Future

“A glacial, ethereal, icy woman, her skin tattooed with satellite views of Earth, meets Marie Antoinette and genetically transforms into a sublimation with the dna of both. This is the origin of the cyborg queen by Byblos Milano. Cosmic geometries merge with Victorian bustiers and crinolines. Rigour and romanticism unite and express their apparent contrast in a continuous exchange between the distant past and the future of cosmic hyperspace.”…

Beyond the Sea

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. – Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild The adventurous spirit has brought people to…

Order and Chaos Within

“There are maps of all kinds, but when I try to navigate the complexities of the mind I often lose myself in this space  where there are no maps. In an attempt to overcome this feeling of being lost I began to draw flowcharts, diagrams of cause and effect, which could show the range of constants and the intangible variables…
