by jep 28 May 2018

Mattia Turco resident artist 3x3x3

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 »

Skatewall in the foyer

by jep 28 April 2018

bastard-skateboard-wall

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.

Every time that Steve Van Doren stops by the bastard store, it’s a blast! On Sunday, February the 25th he arrived right for lunch with some long time friends.

As a digestive we skipped the ammazzacaffè and went straight to the bastard store for a lit session that we’ll never forget. Click on Chiole’s illustration for the raw footage put together by SHARE Skateboarding Mag.

bastard x Suicidal Tendencies: A limited co-op with those lazy Italians

by maxb 30 November 2017

Suicidal Tendencies bastard

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.

Dave Lombardo plays hard in bastard bowl.

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.

GloBALIzation, simple as that

by Dani 15 July 2017

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 »
