Yea but 350 for a hoody after fees feels like a bit much
Someone mind naming the Carpe Diem offshoot brands? I'm a bit hazy. I'm thinking A1923, M.A+, Sarah Lanzi, Lumen et Umbra, Label Under Construction, WJK, Individual Sentiments. Anyone else work with Altieri and make a brand, besides brands like Layer-0 who I think existed in parallel with C-Diem and then worked with him?
You forgot Marvielab, who, I believe, did more with Linea than Carpe, but I could be wrong. So much of it is a mystery. Yoko Ito (IS) worked on some non-Carpe projectswith Altieri, I think Intervallo and Avantindietro. And, of course, there's the ever running dispute on Simone's (A1923) ever having worked with them.
though it would be correct:
Maurizio Amadei (Ma+)
Luca Laurini (LUC)
Sarah Lanzi (minimum involved in pattern mill of 2003)
Monica Sarti (pattern mill of 2003)
Mariavittoria Sargentini (Marvilab)
Yoko Ito (IndiSents) - Evoluzione, Intervallo projects
Daisuke Nishiida (Devoa) - Fattoamano project
Simone Cecchetto (A1923) - he was in charge for footwear line in 2004-2005 (really)
Issey Fujita (Lumen et Umbra)
Jun Hashimoto (wjk)
Ziggy Chen - Altieri works for him in 2009-2010
Alessio Zero (L0) - he get some footwear and clothing patterns and buried leather for AV_field proect as well
I never heard of Daisuke working on Fattoamano. Interesting if true, and clearly a precursor to his anatomical based work.
I'm just going to sit on the fence with Simone and Altieri until a definitive word comes from the man himself. Which means I'll probably be there forever.
Rumors about Daisuke involved in Fatto are quite obscured - heard this only from some guys from current Altieri's team.
What about Simone - though we all know about some problems and addictions of Altieri's past, maybe he just doesn't remember quite correctly what happened ten years ago.
Great list, thanks all!
Devoa working on the Anatomica (I think that was the alternative name to Fattoamano?) with Altieri sounds wonderful, I hope it's true and/or one day I can get my hands on a piece from that project.
I've heard Jan-Jan and Altieri are friends. Is that all, or did they really "work" together? Interesting how WJK is so very different from some of the other Altieri children, though perhaps it's because WJK was more a fan/bud of Altieri than straight up employee?
