1. WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION
Our Aristoteles collection is born from the merging of cultures, The Mediterranean (very present in all our collections) and Ancient Greek Culture.
Once again, Lupo is inspired in yet another architectural masterpiece this time the Walden Building created by the studio of acclaimed architect Ricardo Bofill.
The Walden Building merges different factors that combine a series of ambitions: the city in the space, architecture of consumerism, the unconventional life of the “gauche divine” (movement of intellectuals and artists from Barcelona), over placements in space, and countless of elitis principles of our time.
The building is formed of 18 towers that grow out of their foundation forming a curve and touching adjacent towers. The result is a labyrinth of seven internal patios that are connected to one another. It is like a neighborhood that besides extending itself horizontally it extends vertically. Thanks to this this polygonal shapes are created and with different lights and shadows these are shapes are magnificent.
However, the collection goes beyond and it adds concepts such as functionality, geometry and maths, just like some greek philosopher, the collections transforms the unstructured Lupo that we have right now to make it into a much straighter, polygonal and logic. For this motives and for being considered the first scientific in history Lupo decided to name the collection Aristóteles.
4. IS THE COLLECTION A DISRUPTION FROM OTHER LUPO MEN’S COLLECTIONS?
Yes, this collection breaks the design guidelines that we are known for. These are much more structured and straight bags. It’s based on vertical and horizontal lines, so this way it gets a stronger character, not so de-licate and fluid.
