A NEW MILAN AESTHETICS
SHOE has collaborated with Coma Cose, a duo of singers who are experts in Milanese aesthetics, to mark a new root by opening the first flagship store in Brera. NSS magazine has documented this special meeting with an exclusive interview revealing further details on the launch of the new album, their vision of Milan, and how the style of its streets is evolving.
‘Milan is a city we love. It’s moving and transforming in a symbiotic way with us,’ said Fausto Lama and California. ‘Perhaps it is so varied that there is not only one Milan, but there are so many micro worlds and ways of living in the same city that you never get tired of.’ And there have been a lot of evolutions for the two singers during these years.
FASHION IS LIKE THE MUSIC WE MAKE
‘We like to mix different genres, but the elements must be few, ordered, and chromatically coherent. Going back to the era we live in, the aesthetics of an artist is becoming almost a problem. A look lasts the time of a shot, and if you invest too much energy in it, you risk misleading those who follow you by deviating in a few steps from musician to an influencer. So for us, fashion must reflect our daily personality.’
This vision clarifies their bond with SHOE – a brand that has made its stylistic code of effortless and welcoming language. The new album will also recall this feeling: ‘We felt the need to stop and write the sensations we were experiencing straight away. The idea of being sucked into the whirlwind of a pre-established path was too restrictive for us. Then we believe it’s time to stop and say it’s not all roses; explaining the problems is always the first step toward solutions».
WE TOOK A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA
‘Now that our fanbase has increased a lot, we desire to share some ethical reflections on the present,’ explained Coma Cose, who, among other things, took a break from social media, from this ‘cosmic bewilderment.’
‘Staying always connected makes you feel like everything has already been done, while when you switch off, there’s space for most ordinary things in our life. Social networks are slowly transforming, and in the chaos of information, having a more univocal communication better clarifies who you are.’
