On Saturday March the 2nd 2019, Steve Van Doren and the Vans family visited stopped by the bastard store in Milano…
If you’ve ever had the chance to visit the bastard store and climb up upstairs, where we run our offices, you’ve probably met Mattia Turco and checked out his studio with his latest works.
With the 3x3x3 project by Vans – a skate deck series of 3, designed by 3 skaters in collaboration with their 3 supporting skateshops – we’ve worked on a skate deck and on a special t-shirt to represent the synthesis of the expressive research of Mattia today. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently we re-converted the bastard store’s foyer into a legit ‘skateshop’. A skatewall consisting of larch wooden racks showcases 140 decks on sale.
These racks have been designed by our friends from the milanese architecture studio binocle and are made out of upcycled wood from our previous flooring, the racks are self-illuminating and can be dismantled and folded on the occasion, restoring the original entrances of the old cinema’s gallery.
Seems like it’s true that a good project never ends as the development is continuous.
p.s we are working on adding all the skate stuff to our online store, currently only a small part is visible online, come visit us in via Slataper 19 in Milano for the full set.
We met during last January for that epic skate/signing session in the bastard bowl that eventually came out on the tube, filmed by DogTown skater and photographer Pep Williams for the video of the song Living For Life off the band latest record World Gone Mad.
Then we stayed in contact to develop this ultra limited bastard x Suicidal Tendencies clothing co-op collection off some of the most appreciated bastard’s classics. It’s the first time we ever dedicate a special limited edition version of our cargo pants to a collaboration project, we just had to find the right thing yet. We hope you enjoy it.
Made in Italy is often used as a synonym for quality… but can quality be locked up by countries and borders? So what does Proudly Made by Those Lazy Italians mean?
Quality (ethics, culture, aesthetics, practice), this word emptied of every sincere semantic value in the era of scientific method, is the subject of this brief tale. The subject is called Bali collection … or rather Bali connection. Two inputs, one sentence/one scenario: “I would never sell anything I wouldn’t wear” / Bali: The most beloved Indonesian island by surfers around the world. Read the rest of this entry »

After all these talks on skateboarding, Olympics and athletes, we felt forced to develop a new collection of products inspired by athletic heritage, but with a contemporary twist that brings it back to reality and into the streets for the youth of today.
Tomorrow we will run faster.
We are happy to present the result of this limited collaboration between bastard and ADE Shoes, based first and foremost on personal friendship, shared values and the technical needs of the founders of the respective brands. This co-op has its roots in the mid-80s when Max Bonassi (bastard) and Fabio Di Molfetta (ADE) were travelling around Europe in search of new spots to skate and started building ramps to share with friends respectively in the north and south of the italian peninsula. Often they were carrying the silver duck tape to plug the holes in their shoes and make them last a bit longer. Read the rest of this entry »
