Following the success of their first shop Desenzano del Garda, Italy, the founders of Tabo, Riccardo Bettoni & Nicola Tononi, now opened a second boutique in Brescia. The unisex boutique, housed on two floors of a 1940s building is an exercise in aesthetic restrain, with a white interior and minimal decor. Among the more established designers such as Boris Bidjan Saberi, Nicolas Andreas Taralis, A1923, and Julius, the shop will carry brands like InAisce, Masnada, Y.Project. The owners plan on monthly installations and collaborations with designers, artists, and musicians.



At StyleZeitgeist magazine we count the menswear editorial, “America Still Likes Me,” one of our proudest moments. Based on the Joseph Beuys’s 1974 infamous performance piece, “I like America and America Likes Me,” it was published in volume 2. We have tried to recreate everything as it was, down to the hay, the felt, and the newspapers. The gorgeous creature playing the part of the coyote is actually half-wolf, half-husky.

IS by Individual Sentiments

Yoko Ito, the designer behind the Japanese brand Individual Sentiments who cut her teeth at the now defunct Carpe Diem, has launched a capsule footwear collection called IS. Made in Italy, the line will be available in select stores this fall. All we got from the reticent designer was the rather cryptic, “IS has the same concept as Individual Sentiments and follows the need of a geographical specialization and technique.” Guess we’ll let the products speak for themselves.


StyleZeitgeist Preview: InAisce F/W 2012-13

Its designer, Jona (last name undisclosed), was happy to offer us a preview of his new collection for men and women, called Pilgrim, that he will debut next week in Paris. Indulge in your nomadic dreams.
