It has been two years since we have seen the introduction of the SLEEP-OVER brand with their first video. Since then a lot has changed, from the crew to the clothes and the vibe in general. Were the first video was sexy, to say the least, this one is strictly about the skating or as the founder Fatos Veseli said “I wanted this one to be for the skaters, the people that backed the brand”.
IN 2020 Fatos has taken the reigns and has pulled the brand closer to his own person. “At the start, I was wearing hoody’s, T-shirts and tighter pants but I was dreaming of the South of France. Driving along the coast in a cabriolet car. We needed and wanted to make those clothes to connect to our base but I wanted to evolve and project the brand to where I feel I want to be. Now we have gotten to a place where the designs and the cuts are our own. That means a lot.”
There is no denying that this brand is being propelled forward by hard work and love for what SLEEP-OVER means to the people working on it. Pascal Kurth & Gabriel Dimming worked on the video up to the moment the beamer projected the light onto the silver screen. “They have been the motor behind this video, not me. I want them to have their day in the sun, to shine for a moment, because they put it all into the video.” Fatos told me.
For people that have seen the brand grow, it has been quite the journey, but for the people in the know, it hasn’t been a surprise that the changes have worked. Their newest collection is being worn by both men and women alike. So cheers, to SLEEP-OVER and the hard work behind it, because that is the foundation of any successful brand.
Globe and Pantone came together to celebrate the release of the “Color Of The Year”. 19-4052 aka “Classic Blue” is the color to be exact.
Now for those of you that are not familiar with Pantone, they are a company that is dedicated to documenting color, the specifying, and management of color in industrial work. Basically they created a system that allows product designers to create and match the colors on the screen with the colors on the eventual product.
Often times, we get to see new people move to Berlin but not often do they catch your eye and captivate you for a period of time. Carolina Gamboa a Chilean born skater did just that when she moved to Berlin.
If you have been paying attention to our IG she has been popping up here and there. So, when we got the invite to weartest this collab we immediately thought of her. As such here she is performing a 2-day test on the “Color Of The Year” board.
