The premium sunglasses manufacturer RETROSUPERFUTURE entered the streetwear scene in 2007 and in the last 10 years collaborated with brands like A Bathing Ape, Off-White, Pigalle, Ca

Travis Scott and his sneakers you (maybe) didn’t know

Someone like Travis Scott doesn't need any kind of introduction. For the last couple of years he's held the top spot in rap music, which shows if you look at his contracts with brands like Nike.

Sustainable fashion and its influence on the environment

These days, we give our environment a hard time - we let a lot of materials and produce go to waste. A coffee or lunch to go is a common thing, same as throwing half of the lunch along with its packaging in the trash. Sneakers and apparell are a specific category that we frequently buy, often in large quantities, and say goodbye to in a matter of months.
