This week, we present a collection of goods that can only be described as the Tarantino flick of style. With a remix of western, eastern, and military influences, these brutally renegade pieces are made for the battle uniforms, chopper gear, high stakes heists, and revenge stories of the future. This narrative stars Viberg and Nine Lives, and tells the tale of their toil to make vintage-styled garments for the future by using old-school production techniques on new-school styles.
While there is certainly a place for evolved and elevated reproductions, there are also archetypal leaders by design like Viberg and Nine Lives that produce authentic creations resulting in a new genre of heritage goods. Using vintage as inspiration only, the pieces fashioned under their roofs are unique and innovative, reminding the rest of the pack that while it’s easy to copy, they create original styles through revolutionary evolutions.
Nine Lives established a new classification of fashion by taking military, western, and Americana heritage garments and deconstructing them to bring out the best elements while maintaining the soul of the original. Once again, the enigmatic Bi-Central “Pirates of Production” deliver another sequel of cutting-edge pieces fresh off the Katana blade with methodical Japanese manufacturing techniques combined with a Rock Star style sense to produce unexpected versions of once familiar classics. And, the wardrobe plot thickens with the return of the notorious Waxed Sashiko Duster and exclusive Jacquard Westerns, along with prominent debuts of the distinct DMT Bomber, killer Camo and Canvas 9LU Cargos, and metropolitan Marshall Islander Shirt.
Demonstrating design and production all wrapped into one enterprise with another authentic and new realization by Viberg, the Side Zip Boot fuses elements of military and riding boots to create yet another old-souled icon. Enter our Fango Vitello Calf Side Zip Boot with a battle-ready build and western edge, for that maverick moto-ready style in a leather that records its wearer's escapades with elegance. Featuring a vegetable tanned leather with a subtly matte and sanded grain from one of Italy’s most exclusive tanneries, this boot exudes a sophisticated confidence. As a trailblazer equally matched for the shifty sheriff or moralistic miscreant, the patina ready Fango Side Zip begins as a light taupe that will transform and darken with age as your story progresses.
