Photographed by Yusuke Miyazaki, Ato revealed its latest Fall/Winter 2014 collection: "BLACK COMPISITION".
"Ato seeks in creating clothes that symbolize the individual's identity, making each pattern and style believable to the wearer. Solid cutting is used on the designs, aimed in creating a silhouette that awakens the character of the body. Instead of just crating a masculine or feminine line, Ato works in creating items from the mind, which in turn brings out the character. This attribute is further applied by giving a name to each pattern, not only for the designer, but so that the modelists and any staff involved in the creation will have a base and an understanding of the special character in each garment, consequently targeting the goal of making the best clothes possible."

Inspired by Lance Mountain’s mismatch style back in 1987, The Lance Mountain limited edition Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 will be available in limited quantities in selected Nike SB retailers and online beginning on June 7th. To recreate Mountain's style, each pair will be mismatched with royal blue and varsity red. A layer of black or white paint would be applied on top, as each pair are being worn and skated the paint would wear off, the colours underneath would be revealed. The concept is to emphasize how skaters of the era mismatch their pairs in order to extend the life of their Jordans. Each pair would be an individual statement, and unqiue to skaters.
