    VNGRD is a retrospective on the clothing brand born in Milan in 2005 as the natural creative expression of a group of designers and artists who had lived for years in the heart of the city's underground.
    Thanks to a naïve, self-taught approach to design and a refusal to obey the commercial customs of a world that was transitioning from a traditional model to today's ultra-connected landscape, VNGRD questioned everything and connected many of the people who would later becomes the protagonist of the zeitgeist.
    Led by the creative direction of Giorgio Di Salvo, one of the two founders, VNGRD quickly acquired cult status, amassing collaborations with brands such as Stüssy, SUPER, FUCT and Slam Jam, receiving recognition from Kanye West among others, and throwing seeds that gave birth to the Octopus brand: the motif with the tentacles was in fact created a graphic of VNGRD 2006.
