Our Legacy Marks a “Joyous Reunion” for SS20

Swedish label Our Legacy recently debuted its Spring 2020 collection during Paris Fashion Week. Titled “Joyous Reunion,” the new range is heavily influenced by different social movements and changing societies. Referencing enlightenment and social progress, pieces throughout the collection are inspired by different craft techniques and the relationship between tradition and progression.

Speaking about the collection, Our Legacy Creative Director Cristopher Nying explained the influences: “As we become more enlightened, there is a disconnect between tradition and progression. This collection is inspired by that disconnect, and the social movements who push boundaries, whether it is the anti-war demonstrations, the sexual liberation or the birth of funk. Demonstrations, banners and slogans are the natural means of message for social change and therefore the collection shows inspiration by handicraft, with many different techniques and applications used to create contrast in materials and fabrics. The result is pieces of clothing as modern placards.”

In order to showcase these reference points, the collection mixes “retro futuristic” materials with traditional techniques. Textures such as bleached silk, patent leather and latex-inspired synthetics are used alongside hand knitted detailing, photo collages, papier mache and an earthy color.

Take a look at the Spring 2020 collection in the gallery above, and expect it to start arring in January.

Un’intervista con gravi conseguenze per Jovanotti

Pubblichiamo in anteprima una parte della lunga intervista che lo scrittore Paolo Giordano ha fatto al cantautore Lorenzo Cherubini, in arte Jovanotti. Dalle chiacchiere sugli inizi e i ricordi di famiglia ai motivi della scelta di andare a vivere a Cortona, vent’anni fa. Dal primo successo di «È qui la festa?» ai rapporti con la figlia Teresa (per la quale scrisse «Per te»). Fino alle riflessioni sul futuro della musica, sul pop, sulla nuova esperienza voluta dal suo produttore Rick Rubin. Potete leggere l’intervista integrale sul numero 23 di 7 in edicola da venerdì 6 giugno (e fino a giovedì 13) oppure in Pdf sulla Digital Edition del Corriere della Sera.

Saliamo in cima ai pochi filari di vigna e da lì Lorenzo indica il ciliegio: «Mi hanno detto che andrebbe tagliato, ma io non me la sento. Da bambino venivo a rubare le ciliegie, scavalcavo il muro lì, vedi?». La pianura toscana si estende fino a un orizzonte di foschia. Ecco la casa di Cortona in cui Lorenzo vive, o meglio «fa base», da quasi vent’anni, una casa che mi sembrava di aver visto senza averla mai vista. «Teresa è arrivata appena ci siamo trasferiti, forse l’abbiamo concepita la prima notte qui». Per un po’ restiamo incantati a guardare il robottino tagliaerba che si sta occupando in solitudine dell’ultima porzione di prato. «La sera va a ritirarsi sotto il capanno. È incredibile. All’inizio i cani erano sospettosi, ma adesso lo ignorano».
Al pianterreno, all’ingresso dello studio di registrazione, è appesa una cartina dell’Italia, di quelle che una volta si trovavano in ogni aula delle elementari. I Post-It segnalano le spiagge del Jova Beach Party, distribuite con equilibrio lungo tutta la costa, solo la Sicilia è sguarnita. «Non siamo riusciti a trovare un posto adatto», commenta Lorenzo dispiaciuto. Da scommessa giocosa, il tour delle spiagge si è rivelato più complicato del previsto, ha trascinato anche qualche polemica. Ma si vede che Lorenzo è impaziente di cominciare. Sul mixer sono appoggiati i rendering del palco: una scenografia fricchettona, perfetta per una festa d’estate. Che spiaggia in Liguria?, gli chiedo. «Albenga. Pensa che ci ho fatto il Car».

Per qualche strano fenomeno gravitazionale, nelle due ore successive torneremo in continuazione sulla sua infanzia. E, per la stessa ragione misteriosa, ci troviamo adesso a parlare di com’era l’erotismo in quegli anni.
«Il mio babbo portava a casa questi settimanali in cui c’erano le prime donne nude, mischiate alla politica e a tutto il resto. Be’, erano delle presenze… conturbanti. Anche se all’epoca non le vivevo così, ero un ragazzino, mi sembravano proprio spinte. Credo che avesse a che fare con le nostre mamme, mamme di un’altra epoca, di un altro mondo, mentre quelle ragazze, Gloria Guida, Ornella Muti, erano intraprendenti e sfacciate. Devastanti».

Si potrebbe azzardare un parallelo facile con la musica: le canzoni, tutte, a portata di clic.
«Per me è un pensiero fisso capire cosa sta cambiando nella musica. Uno potrebbe rispondere: non sta cambiando nulla, le canzoni belle si fanno comunque strada, il numero di quelle che rimangono è lo stesso, solo il rumore di fondo si è alzato… ma non è così. È arrivata una grande inondazione, e le inondazioni cambiano il paesaggio. Come devo stare io dentro questo nuovo paesaggio musicale?».

Se dovessi scegliere un solo aggettivo per descrivere il risultato, direi che «Oh, vita!» è un album “nudo”. Ti sei spogliato tu o ti ha spogliato Rubin?
«Lui, lui. Non gliene fregava niente di chi fossi, di tutte le aspettative che potevo avere attorno: a lui interessavano quel disco e quelle canzoni, voleva portarne fuori l’essenza, ottenere il massimo col minimo. È stato un percorso difficile, anche violento, perché io ho un’anima pop, un amore sincero per le canzonette…».

Fear over big tech’s growth and an economic slowdown just forced one Wall Street bull to slash his earnings outlook yet again

Jonathan Golub of Credit Suisse appearing on CNBC's CNBC

  • Credit Suisse just lowered its S&P 500 earnings outlook for the second time this year due to a host of macroeconomic and company-specific factors weighing on the market. 
  • The firm’s chief US equity strategist, Jonathan Golub, maintained a bullish year-end price target.
  • Visit Markets Insider’s homepage for more stories.

The same worries keep eating at Jonathan Golub. 

The chief US equity strategist for Credit Suisse on Monday lowered his corporate earnings estimates for the second time this year. The reasoning for his curbed expectations sounds a lot like what pushed him to cut his estimates back in March, and before that, last September.

It was falling oil prices, along with softening outlooks at big tech companies like Apple, that led Golub to trim his 2019 and 2020 S&P 500 earnings-per-share forecasts earlier this year. 

“Since then, oil prices have declined further, economic indicators (such as global PMIs) have moderated, and the outlook for select TECH+ names (including Micron, Intel, Facebook and Alphabet) has weakened,” he wrote in a note to clients on Monday.

The New York-based strategist again reduced his 2019 and 2020 EPS estimates to $166.50 from $170, and to $176 from $180, respectively. That translates to forecasted annual EPS growth of 2.2% (from 4.4%) for 2019 and 5.7% (from 5.9%) for 2020.

Golub’s tempered expectations are emblematic of the big-picture concerns bogging down investor sentiment amid the US-China trade war — even as stock prices hover around all-time highs.

Analysts and strategists up and down Wall Street are voicing concerns that investors aren’t properly weighing stock-market risks, like unresolved trade tensions rising against a slowing economic backdrop. Federal regulators’ reported anti-trust regulation against big tech companies like Alphabet and Facebook is another long-term risk to factor in, experts say.

“One important source of the weaker data is the trade war, and I’m getting a lot of client questions about potential scenarios for the G20 meeting and implications for markets and the economy,” Torsten Sløk, the chief international economist at Deutsche Bank, said in a Sunday report.

Despite the concerns from different corners of the market and the global economy, Credit Suisse’s Golub remains firmly in the bull camp. He sees the S&P 500 rising about 2.5% from current levels by the end of the year, to 3,025. 

“Decelerating economic data, as well as declining interest rates and inflation expectations, should weigh on multiples,” he wrote. “However, the backdrop remains non-recessionary, providing a floor to stock prices.”

Unique B&T APC40 Pops Up At Tar Heel State Firearms

Posted in Daily News, Submachine Guns/Pistol Caliber Carbines by with No Comments

APC40

I’ll clarify right off the bat: Tar Heel State Firearms (THSF) actually has five of the unique B&T APC40 pistol caliber carbines, but three of them were already spoken for at the time of this writing. I spoke with Scott at THSF earlier this week, hoping that the batch included an APC40SD model (don’t judge, I have my reasons). For the collectors out there, the number of 40S&W in existence has to be low. So if are interested, you might want to give Scott a call. Otherwise, check out the rest of the B&T Guns they currently have available by following the link below.

Why the APC40? Why not? In all seriousness, these limited run guns are rumored to be part of a contract overrun for a law enforcement agency. If you have evolved past .45ACP but have yet to fully embrace the king of pistol calibers – 9mm – then the APC40 is the gun for you.
