L A T is a brand by young designer Lautaro Amadeo Tambutto, born in Argentina and now based in Milan. He is the winner of FASHIONCLASH Festival Talent Award 2015. His collection is a contemporary interpretation of his country of origin, contaminated with a constant reference to the taste of the underground European metropolis as we can see from fits and styling. Folklore is missing, no nostalgia shouted. But the desire to re-establish a new concept of LAT (Latin American) that goes beyond the clichés.
“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.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
