Marsèll’s uniform defines a new formality through the restyling of an iconic shoes style and the launch of a collaboration with the workwear project GRASSI 10000.go to the shop <
Marsèll renovates the Gommellone style with a new ultra-light sole and launches a collaboration with GRASSI 10000, a workwear brand that explores the concept of contemporary uniform.
The Gommello is an iconic style which has been present through Marsèll’s collections for many seasons. After having undergone a process of restyling to give it more thickness and roundedness, the style changes its name in Gommellone and, thanks to the advanced research on the rubber soles, it gains extreme lightness that contrasts with the bulky look. Gommellone is available in Chelsea and Derby styles, in more than ten colors.
The restyling of the Gommellone is presented with a 100% made in Italy uniform, composed by jacket, trousers, coat and Bermuda, all of them produced in peached cotton, available in two colors: ivory and blue. Realized by GRASSI 10000, the uniform is an evolution of the workwear concept: essential lines and materials quality give life to a new formal urban style, fitting every daily context.
The portraits of the collaboration between Marsèll and GRASSI 10000 have been shot by photographer Jonathan Frantini. The new collection is on view from September 16th, 2021, in the basement of Marsèll showroom in via Paullo, Milan.
GRASSI 10000 is a platform that promotes ideas tied to work and uniforms through commercial and non-commercial products. It selected and reinterpreted some elements coming from the archive of a company which is producing workwear since 1925, taking it as the basis to collaborate with people and companies that share the aesthetic, cultural and social values of uniforms.
Jonathan Frantini was born in Ravenna, Italy and lives in Paris, France. His work deals with an authentic manner giving a unity to his commissioned and un-commissioned projects. His photographs, predominantly focus on portraiture, seemingly without artifice and a natural look, are linked to the documentary style, finding inspiration directly from life, from the street, from the vernacular. Tending to work in series of photographs, he explores the individual and his surrounding experimenting with the photographic medium both in analogue and digital. Notable collaborations include working with Dries Van Noten, Maison Martin Margiela and Bottega Veneta. His work has been exhibited in Qualsiasità, at the Malaspina Foundation, Ascoli Piceno and at the Italian Cultural Institute in London. The project is dedicated to Guido Guidi’s photographic research and to a new generation of artists who are witnesses of his particular attitude. He participated to the project “Dove Viviamo” curated by Osservatorio Fotografico. His photographs are part of Massimo Orsini/Mutina collection among: Robert Adams, Thomas Demand, William Egglestom, Lee Friedlander, Luigi Ghirri, Wolfgang Tillmans.
