model Mark Mićunović in BARBA Collection of Backpacks for the Season summer/autumn 2014 photoshoot… that is all.
BARBA: Beard does not make a philosopher, but it looks good. If you browse through old photo albums of our fathers or grandfathers you will surely come across at least one photo from their youth where they are young men wore a beard. Men beard represents the initiation of hairless toff to mature and self-possessed gentleman and indirectly is a sign of wisdom.
Model Mark Mićunović raised the temperature a little bit more on the hot asphalt in a new editorial for the summer/autumn collection of backpacks for brand Barba. Photos were taken by Ivor Matić while Mićunović posing in a raw, almost prison ambience in the garage of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb.
“The idea is to capture the atmosphere and encourage the creation of a third person’s perspective. Passers-by from the gallery, watching BARBA-man as a modern Conan chained to concrete walls and metal bars reminding us how great and ongoing are human hunger for games “- said Dalibor Jakus, Founder and Owner of Barba brand.
Barba collection of backpacks for the season summer / autumn 2014 comes in five different designs while backpacks are made from hard cotton with rope. Design is appropriate for the brutal player and vagabonds such as Barba-man is, with symbols and colors one hardened bearded beast that fully matches his fighting spirit.

LEVI’S: In 1951, the world famous American crooner Bing Crosby was denied entrance into a Canadian hotel because he and his friend were dressed completely in denim. Although the Hotel management eventually recognized Bing and made an exception because of who he was, the story of the incident traveled fast. Friends of his back home contacted Levi Strauss and Co. and the designers immediately developed a custom denim tuxedo jacket for Bing so that he would never have problems wearing Levi’s® Jeans, even in fancy establishments. It was made of the sturdy denim used for 501® Jeans, and decorated with a lovely corsage of Red Tabs, held onto the lapel with a cluster of shiny copper rivets.
Inside the jacket was a huge leather patch printed with a “Notice to All Hotel Men” stating that denim is a perfectly appropriate fabric and anyone wearing it should be allowed entrance into the finest hotels. LS&Co presented the jacket to Bing at the 1951 Silver State Stampede in Elko, Nevada where he was honorary mayor. He was so tickled with the tux that he wore it to many press appearances for his next film, “Here Comes the Groom.” The original jacket, as well as one made for the town’s mayor, is in the Northeastern Nevada Museum in Elko.
For Spring Summer 2014, Levi’s® Vintage Clothing reproduced this famous piece of Levi’s® history and made a limited run of 200 jackets (now sold out). All of the details are true to the original.
