Photoshoot Rasheeda

 

Rasheeda is a DJ that currently lives in São Paulo, Brazil, and met TRICOMA in a bazaar from Calefação Tropicaos.

How did you find out about the brand?

I had just moved to São Paulo and the weather was beginning to get a bit cold. My friend, Leo TN, invited me to a bazaar that he was helping out at and it just happened to be Tricoma. I was in love with the concept and design from the moment I laid eyes on it. I knew I needed to be in those clothes and I immediately started planning.

Why you wanted to be photographed using it?

I am a musical artist and DJ so I am always looking to have professional photos done. Tricoma was my favorite because the original concept and knit wear from Minas was something different.

Whats the thing about Tricoma you like the most?

I love the colours and the patterns the most. I also love that the knit wear is wearable in the cooler months and the warmer months. The quality is superb as well.

How was the photoshoot?

The photoshoot was amazing. Tricoma’s artisti director, João, was supportive and encouraging. Our photographer Fernando, was so sweet and I really loved his attention to detail. We had been planning to do something on the Martinelli building so this was an awesome opportunity for both Crew Active Photography and Tricoma.

Were you comfortable?

I was super comfortable. The clothing was comfortable. It was a good day and I also come from modeling and marketing. I studied that in school. I love the camera.

Whats your job and where do u currently live?

I am currently living and working in Sao Paulo. I am a singer and DJ.

ALINE TIMA

Born in Mogi Mirim, São Paulo, Aline Tima graduated in Visual Arts one of the bests art schools in Brazil. Always participating in the artistic production of events and festivals, Aline joined the collective Voodoohop in 2010 and there has developed as a professional working in all the areas required for the achievement of a major event. Her creations connects with the people who live in urban environments, showing a pleasant and fun side of art. Using multiple media and techniques to produce her creations, Aline has a background in digital media, event production, photography, publications and designing costumes . A true cosmopolitan chameleon with an innovative mind, the artist founded the sweaters and cardigans brand Tricoma in July of 2015.

The idea of the brand came out from the lack which the artist felt when finding unique pieces, different, and that awake desire. All of this, of course, when working against the mass production line which we are currently living. Aline strongly believes that we all have an artistic side that we should explore, so TRICOMA is her newest ally in the track of evolution as a professional and as an artist.

ALINE TIMA AND LISA WASSMANN

Everyone that has been keeping up with Tricoma news, knows that we went to Europe at the end of april. Our first stop was in Berlin, Germany. We spent inspirational amazing days in this city that combines tradition with modernism and it certainly is a trendsetter for the rest of the world! Within Berlin’s charms there are more than 170 museums, and that makes Berlin a city full of art and occupied by artists who dictate global trends. In addition to all its cultural baggage, it is one of the greenest cities in Germany with large parks, forests and lakes, further emphasizing the contrast in the air. With so many creative and talented minds wandering the city, it was obvious that we would not miss the opportunity to merge our brand with the art and energy of the place. For a photo session in the afternoon , the photographer Lisa Wassmann captured the creative director and founder of Tricoma, Aline Tima . Being an artist since she can remember, Lisa fell in love with the camera at the age of ten and never let go ! We are really grateful for working with such a brilliant and outstanding photographer!

On a few interviews, the photographer said what most delights her in photography is the ability to freeze time. Lisa has the power to transport us into another atmosphere, delicate, almost a waking dream.
Young people, nature and animals are part of the composition of her surrealistic scenarios. When we are passionate about our work, this energy is reflected in everything we produce. This is the case of Lisa Wassamann, that shows in her photos all the wonder and the joy she feels when she is able to register the world through her own eyes.

Check it out, the photoshoot between these two talented woman:

PRESS RELEASE TRICOMA

The artist Aline Arcuri Tima, graduated in visual arts at the University of Belas Artes, was born in São Paulo and came to the capital eight years ago. With a personal collection of bazaars pieces, Aline has always been in love with costumes! In July 2015, the artist created a clothing brand that suggests the discussion of issues such as conscientious consumption and a sustainable lifestyle.
“Tricoma is the realization of a dream for me,” says Aline. With the production of sweaters and cardigans made of knitting, the pieces are limited, numbered and accessible only by order. Launched against the massive manufacturing clothes and of low quality, tricoma was guided from the start by the slow fashion concept, already widespread in Europe but still little explored in Brazil.

With high quality product, all materials used at the production of the pieces are national, with a fair remuneration for all the professionals involved. Our modelling has no gender, after all, they are designed to fit perfectly well in both men and women, of all ages and sizes, a detail that emphasizes our social values.
Guided by exclusivity, quality and originality the brand is part of a movement that came up to question and innovate the values of consumption at the Brazilian fashion market, “the last industrial revolution and its storage model, working hours and with a primary focus only the progress and profit is already outdated and centenary! It’s time to rethink the  consumption in general, we are destroying the planet and depleting all kinds of natural materials still available, “says the founder of Tricoma.

ALINE TIMA AND FERNANDA YOUNG

In eight episodes hosted by the wonderful journalist Fernanda Young, Madrugada Desperada series presents stories of artists who work in São Paulo late night and use public space as a platform for their work. Aline Tima is the shit!

POSTFY

We are proud that our founder and creative director Aline Tima participated in this project as an artist who created performances by making skateboarders wear  burkas, capping them almost entirely, including their faces. During the interview, Fernanda plunged into the world of Tima and called her a transgressive artist, after all, a esthetic shock is pretty apparent in the design of the Burcas Flutuantes project.

postfy1

They discussed a lot about about privacy and identity and Fernanda argued that you can see the burca, an oppressive object, as a vehicle of freedom to escape a oppressive aesthetic standard.

Besides all the prestige of being part of this project, our episode of Burcas Flutuantes was broadcast on TV Metropolis, in May this year. The Metropolis began in 1988 and is considered a classic of Brazilian TV, with live interviews, musical acts and theatrical performances.

Do you know the origin of Knit #sweaterlovers?

 

Understand why we have chosen for the rescue of slow manufacturing Knit!

MALHA

Knitting is a technique to weave the cord in an organized way, creating a cloth that is called knitting. No one knows exactly how the knitting was invented, but historians believe that it was born in the Mediterranean and only then spread to Europe and the rest of the world.

The oldest knit pieces that exist have been discovered in Egypt and are 1200 D.C. A long time ago, right? The Knit was made by men, and fabrics with the assistance of bones and wood needles, while women were assigned to produce the wire with the spinning wheel. The first knitting were made from twisted wires for the particular purpose of being or socks or neck adornments.

esfinges

With the evolution of technology, the invention of machines to weave was a consequence. And as a result of this technological step, producers aimed were looking foward to profit and increase the production above anything else! With all that power in hands, the massification and the stock of knit parts is got tremendously huge.

Have you noticed that when we stop to buy a sweater at any fast fashion we come across hundreds of people using the same piece? This is the result of a system that seeks the numbers, not the history of the piece made, even less the satisfaction of the end consumer.

Of course, we love technology and also we enjoy it for our production, but we have our values pretty clear in our minds, and to work against this frenetic production system is our greatest goal.

That’s the main reason why TRICOMA is proud to rescue that historical period where the knit was produced for a particular person and with a handmade work. We are against this massification of knitwear and the impersonality that the fashion market requires us when we choose to buy a piece that we really like.

By getting your TRICOMA at home, you may notice that the tag has the part number that you purchased. Do you know what that means? It means that when we create our sweaters and cardigans, we have in mind that they are super exclusive to you. It is almost impossible to leave home and find another person with the same pattern than yours! Amazing, right?  I hope this brief history of the knitting origin clarify you some questions, especially about our proposal as a brand!

See you.
