Back to the past
By Antonio Malara
It’s almost ten years that I bought my expensive Audi A5 and I realized that I never took any good pic to it. Looking for a new location for a photo shooting I decided that the car could be used as part of the background. In this way I could have something new and at the same time I could take some pics even to my car. I went with my sister in a parking lot and I chose the best angle with a tree in background. Unfortunately for lack of time as always in the summer I had to shoot at noon which is the worse moment to do it.
This summer outfit is simple and it’s a kind of back to the past, two items like the t-shirt and the shoes bring me back to my teen age.
The first thing is the t-shirt by Plein Sport. This is a tribute to Mike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion. He won the most important titles in the eighties but unfortunately for our generation who grow up in the nineties, Tyson has been also popular for his bad habits outside the ring during this decade. About the t-shirt, I like the combination of grey, black and red beside the design and the quote by Tyson on the back.
The second thing that bring me back in time are the shoes because finally I bought again a Cesare Paciotti model after years. Here you have to know a little story from the nineties.
At some point around 1997, Paciotti made a new line of sneakers named “Paciotti 4us" (sneakers were unusual at that time). The game changer was the fact that he designed the same shoes with and without laces in different colors. That model had a great success through teenagers even if it was pretty expensive. I didn’t buy that model at that time, but I bought other types shoes by Paciotti, it wasn’t only a trend, it was especially a matter of quality and comfort.
I don’t know why but looking for a black leather sneakers I end up on Paciotti website and I found this singular model. It’s a slip-on, but it’s total black and it’s breathable thanks to holes all over the top, so it can be used even in the summer. The shoe is super comfortable and you can really feel the air passing through the holes, I want to see if it works on those super warm nights.
The black jeans that is really dark is by Dsquared2, this is my favorite model, the super skinny “clement”, I’ve been lucky to find it with 30% off. This model is not a real permanent collection item, I mean they have it in all seasons but they change details every time, especially the waist fit.
So here it is another casual and trendy outfit for my summer time, I hope to start using this black jeans in combination with shirts and other type of shoes, unfortunately I will not do a blog post about it because it cost me so much time but you can check them out on my Instagram (I know that it’s a sin but we must be realistic).
