another look at NOBRAND

March 18, 2008

nobrand argentina

We check back in with Nobrand, a project of design studio ImagenHB which promotes traditional Argentinian icons along with minimalist design.

Since our last post, they’ve added food (bife, asada, empanadas) and animals (nandu, hornero) to their portfolio of logos. All the images are printed on tees, tanks, hats, and aprons.

They’ve also dabbled in some furniture (armchair shaped like a T-bone!) and kitchenware (mate). And while it’s not available for download, they’ve also displayed a font they designed.

Must-browse: Check out the company’s catalog/lookbook on their website. You’ll also see more pictures from their sport collection (worn by Sergio Roitman).

tattoo watch: volandri doesn’t have one

September 13, 2007

As much as we’re on the lookout for players who have tattoos, sometimes it’s nice to know when we can strike someone from the “already tattooed” list.

Italian Filippo “Filo” Volandri, in a quick bio on his site, says that he has neither tattoos nor piercings.

Other interesting bits about the highest-ranked Italian on the ATP tour:

  • Whom he considers the nicest guy on the tour: Carlos Moya
  • The rudest: Lleyton Hewitt (pre-Mia, perhaps)
  • Best crowd: the Romans
  • The crowd he can’t handle: the Chileans
  • One thing he can’t live without: Coca-Cola. (Bless!)

Volandri played the BCR Open Romania this week (in Bucharest). As the second seed, he lost to Gael Monfils in the first round. Today, he (along with doubles partner Sergio Roitman) were eliminated from the doubles draw by local faves Victor Hanescu and Andrei Pavel.

Fashion focus: For his singles match, he wore the same red shirt from EA7 — that’s Emporio Armani‘s sports collection — which made its quick debut at the U.S. Open. (We didn’t know about the curves on the back.)

And he wore a simpler blue polo for his doubles match while partner Roitman was clad in No Brand.

roitman’s “no brand” clothing

Sergio goes gaucho: The background behind Argentinian Sergio Roitman‘s clothing sponsor, No Brand: Roitman’s buddy runs the line, whose goal is low-key promotion of national icons such as cattle (on his bandana, above), Che Guevara, the bandoneón (pictured on his shirt, above), mate (the country’s favorite drink), and Carlos Gardel. Upcoming designs include Guillermo Vilas and Gabriela Sabatini.

Players like Nicolas Almagro, Filippo Volandri, Nicolas Lapentti, and Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo are all fans of the line. At tournaments, Roitman usually brings extra gear to hand out as gifts.
