In tune with the recent human invasion of Mars, space is the place for Daniel Palillo in spring 2013. His latest collection ‘Invasion’ presents an idiosyncratic vision of a parallelreality, including subcultures beyond the ones we know of. Palillo’s universe looks like a Spike Lee movie with a science fiction twist. It is situated ina time after the Internet where new styles are developed from unidentified objects; created among gangs who communicate with an enigmatic language. Here, only shirts withwords speak and caps with antennas listen. The end.

“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
