Road ‘n’ Leather: Matchless London dresses me in the Bull Jacket

Official tester for the historic London brand adored by Kate Moss, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Daniel Craig, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham

Matchless, Britain’s oldest motorcycle brand, ridden by legends such as Marlon Brando and James Dean. Since the 1950s it has been a legendary style icon. In fact, the Matchless London clothing line is an irresistible magnet for celebrities such as: Kate Moss, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Daniel Craig, Dwayne Johnson, Gerald Butler, Tom Hardy.

A tradition celebrated over the years by winning pilots, pioneers, revolutionaries, inventors, daring industrialists, all figures who knew how to fight, resist and win.

Appointed official tester of a unique product, made with experimental and futuristic materials, I will wear the high design garment during the upcoming Bull Days Serenissima. A new “wild & on the road” spirit. In perfect biker style, but this time aboard a Lamborghini.

MATCHLESS: road & leather attitude since 1899

An iconic brand, symbol of an authentic and divergent lifestyle, one of the few 19th century brands still intact. It is in fact since 1899 that the legendary motorcycles of the British company enrapture the hearts and souls of an increasingly wide audience.

A company born from a pure passion for the road and all that it represents. Freedom, directness, speed and the pleasure of discovery. An inner fire, an innate nature for non-conformism, innovation, a bold and ardent look that goes beyond rules and limits.

It all began with the attention to the safety of motorcyclists, leading the English company to put into production the first clothing designed specifically for real bikers. A line born on the road and for the road. It was the beginning of another successful company branch.

This is where Matchless’ exceptional know-how in leather processing originates. An intuition that also made it the first motorcycle manufacturer to work on rider safety. A pioneering perspective to design safe, high-performance, technical clothing, as well as capable of reflecting the link between two wheels and elegance.

Leather jackets, outdoor clothing and accessories for men and women soon joined the company’s core business on a global scale.

The balance between grit, strength and grunge effect, the perfect fit and the huge company heritage are among the main elements of the appeal that made the brand collect followers all over the world.

ICONIC UNIVERSE: between cult movies and VIPs

An irresistible magnetism that has made many celebrities fall in love. Today Matchless’ iconic pieces are worn by public figures such as His Holiness Pope Francis, Bill Clinton, and movie stars like Dwayne Johnson, Gerald Butler, Tom Hardy and Daniel Craig.

Featuring Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne, Mark Wahlberg, Jason Momoa, Jason Statham, James McAvoy, Bella Thorne, Bradley Cooper, Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, Harrison Ford, Michelle Rodriguez.

Domino effect of this appeal: Matchless produces limited editions for the world of cinema and entertainment. In fact, it collaborates with Hollywood productions and has made numerous jackets for major films, such as: James Bond Spectre, Star Wars, The Expendables 3, Avengers 2, Batman vs Superman, Blade Runner 2049, Dunkirk, Spiderman Homecoming, Transformers The Last Knight, Fast & Furious 8, Terminator Genisys, just to name a few.

“Where There’s A Road, There’s A Matchless”

Founded in London by Henry Collier, it is now an absolute icon of ultra-elegant clothing for motorcycle enthusiasts. Between 2012 and 2013, the company was acquired by Michele and Manuele Malenotti, the two Italian brothers former owners of Belstaff, another famous brand in the industry.

Inaugurating an important advertising campaign that saw Kate Moss enter the scene as testimonial of the women’s line and Andre Van Noord in the men’s one. Luxurious leathers, exclusive and with a vintage touch. Antiqued leather biker jackets, waxed cotton garments, boots and sneakers with used effect leathers.

All immortalized by the lens of Terry Richardson, a true institution in fashion photography.

The Malenotti family is leading the legendary Matchless brand on the road to technical and high-performance fabrics. For outwear that is increasingly off-road and oriented towards the fusion of motorcycling and design.

A relaunch plan of the brand aimed at combining the classic and the tradition of Matchless with the innovation and the quality of Made in Italy.

Official Tester for Matchless: following a tradition of stars and self-made men

When you put your heart and mind into what you do, when you perfect yourself day after day to push your limits, that’s when victory becomes a simple consequence. This philosophy, espoused 100% by Matchless London, is the same one I personally cultivate.

This very important and prestigious synergy, which will enter the track for the first time at the Bull Days Serenissima on September 24-25-26, is the confirmation that my person is becoming a recognized brand.

I believe that being front-man of the Bull Days Luxury Experience has certainly played a key role in the birth of this bond. The passion for speed and for the universe of motorsport are the essential common point with the ideology of the historic British brand.

The shared creed is the active and on-the-road lifestyle. To have the courage to dare, to rebel and to reach one’s goals. This is the common essence between the brands Matchless and Stefano Cigana.

THE BULL JACKET

The Matchless R&D department, for the occasion, has created a garment specifically designed with mobility-related performance and technological features. The jacket is in fact made of a brand new sustainable nappa leather, strictly made in Italy.

The garment has the name of Bull Jacket. Inside it has a brand new lining that allows great breathability and can be used when driving Supercars and Hypercars. The garment will be available on matchlesslondon.com at Bull Days Dubai.

In addition Matchless, for the Bull Days Serenissima event, has created a brand new backpack, with the name Reflex Backpack, with details designed for mobility and reflective at night lights. It is already available online at matchlesslondon.com.

K-MED®: lay down with the right one, to feel good night and day

K-MED® for Human & Pet: a revolutionary medical device perfect for regaining well-being

The experience of Brand Ambassador for the company KPET is getting under my skin, in the true sense of the word. The credit certainly doesn’t go to microchip aliens, but to a unique product called K-MED® HUMAN.

Simplifying it, a blanket: soft, welcoming, relaxing, healing, modern, innovative and with intelligent warmth. As an informed interlocutor and direct user, I speak knowingly of the first bio-physical painkiller, certified in Class 1 by the Ministry of Health. Completely Made in Italy. A revolutionary medical device, produced and signed by KPET, with efficacy tested on all mammals and able to reduce pain and inflammation up to 70%.

The nanobiomolecule KRYSTAL MED®, of which KPET is the exclusive owner, is the forerunner of my well-being. Unique in the world, it is one of the most important scientific discoveries of the last thirty years. A tetrahedral-ionic structure, able to interact with the nervous system of every mammal, at the level of phospholipid synaptic membranes. Restoring neural connections and effectively reducing pain and inflammation.

Practically, the infrared energies FIR (Far InfraRed) emitted by the human body are intercepted and returned, stimulating cellular functions, microcirculation and peripheral oxygenation.

K-MED is therefore able to improve micro-circulation, increase blood oxygenation and cellular efficiency. Effectively fighting inflammations (inflammatory and painful states) of the musculoskeletal system. Treating articular and extra-articular rheumatic affections. In addition to inflammatory states, also of post-traumatic origin.

The result of scientific research, K-MED® may prove to be the right way to go when you want to improve your life, being able to truly say “Bye bye pills!”

By obtaining with K-MED® a rapid resolution of chronic and intense pain derived from: arthritis, arthrosis, trauma, degenerative processes, water retention, cluster headache, inflammatory problems, menstrual pain, post-surgery, prolonged states of stress and sleep disorders.

I am noticing positive effects on the quality of my sleep and some stress support, in the activities in which I am professionally involved.

I confirm the persistence, even during the day, of the pleasant widespread sense of well-being. In the hours when I’m out and about for work. In the space I dedicate to my passion for sports in the gym and outdoors, as well as my other outdoor activities. This means that the medical-scientific technology of the K-MED device interacts with me even when I am not using it directly in contact with my body.

The absence of contraindications emerged during the clinical studies, approved by the National Research Council and the Department of Chemistry of the University of Florence, therefore makes K-MED ® an exceptional help for athletes and sportsmen who perform intense physical activity and for people in advanced age.

K-MED ® is also available for my pet, with the same benefits. An act of love due to animals in need of care and / or elderly.

The use of K-MED ® is very simple, a minimum time of 4H/NIGHT to benefit effectively, using it as a blanket. Or as a static support during the daily rest.

Savini Tartufi: since 1920 discovering the diamond of the woods

The Tuscan brand Savini Tartufi is a Made in Italy excellence in the world of truffles

The history of the Tuscan brand Savini Tartufi, today a reference point in the world of truffles, begins with a passion that goes back a long way in time. We are in 1920, over a century ago, the young and talented hunter Zelindo, decided to embrace the life of a full-time truffle hunter. Since then, the lives of 4 generations have followed one another and intertwined around that precious fruit of the earth.

From the woods to the table. Experience, like an innate sense of smell honed over the years, is the inimitable ingredient that allows Savini to create products of the highest quality. In addition to being the main element that has allowed the brand to establish itself as an excellence of Made in Italy.

The secrets of truffles, since 1920

A modern company able to make the magic of ancient values coexist with the eyes of those who know the way of innovation. The strong point is a valuable product, the fruit of a land that is home to food and wine excellence.

Tuscany. One of the most important Italian regions for the production of truffles.

They are hidden here, in Forcoli (Pisa) near San Miniato, where Nature is still uncontaminated and luxuriant, as in an idyllic golden age. White Truffle, March truffle, Summer truffle, Tuber uncinatum, Prized truffle, Winter Truffle. The precious underground treasures of Savini Tartufi. Found by about 3500 trufflehunters and preserved following recipes and secrets handed down from generation to generation.

The high and leafy woods of Savini guard the delicious truffles, rare tuber-shaped gems. The magic happens among the roots and at the feet of ancient oaks, hazelnuts, poplars and other secular plants. Able, thanks to the energy infused by the rhythms of nature, to make unique products blossom in all seasons.

A primordial mixture, skilfully mixed by Mother Earth, then accepted and wisely perfected by the Tuscan company.

 

Truffle Experience: the magic from the wood to the table

Savini Tartufi also organizes many exclusive Truffle Experiences for lovers of wine and food tours. Magical experiences that include: epic truffle hunts, cooking classes, lunches and dinners based on fresh truffles, tastings of delicacies and selected local wines. As well as a visit to the Savini Museum.

Discovering the truffle, like a journey of exploration towards new frontiers or treasures of ancient civilizations. Immersed in the rarefied lights and iridescent colors of the forest, in the shade of natural roofs composed of multiform leaves. Experience the pleasure of discovery and the irresistible fascination triggered by wonder. The true sap that makes your eyes sparkle and your heart beat.

A symphony of scents, emotions and sensations. A journey of yesteryear built on the relationship that is generated between the quarryman and his faithful four-legged companion. An experience that finds its climax in the unveiling of this exceptional pearl of the woods.

Experiencing these exclusive and enchanting experiences at first hand also becomes an important tourism business tool. Being able to integrate Truffle Experiences into cross-sector projects and leisure initiatives is now a growing strategy with great appeal.
