FUTURA 'SPIRAL' CAP

501SPRLCAPFUTURA

Futura collaboration with Cinelli Art Program comes from afar. From the enthusiasm for cycling, from Keith Haring’s Rampichino, from New York messengers, from the street culture.
The road that led to this collection has been long and winding.  There has always been mutual affection, but it’s the friendship that made it happen in the end.

The Spiral Cap recalls one of the most iconic Futura signs, the Spiral. Since the very beginning, the cycling cap has been a highly recognizable sign of belonging to the cycling culture. Later came the swag, from Coppi, to Merckx, from De Vlaeminck to Hinault and Indurain. In a more recent era, the cycling cap has been adopted not only by roadies, but also by the fresh urban cycling tribes, led by the cycling messengers. In the cross-pollination between street and cycling culture, the cap stands as a clear statement on the head of these New Cycling enthusiasts.
Being Futura a rider himself, with a solid messenger experience, it is no surprise that he put one of his iconic symbols as the Spiral on an equally strong item as the cycling cap. #capsnothats!

Legendary artist and long-time urban cyclist, Futura was born in New York in 1955 and started painting in the early ’70s when the genre of graffti – as a formal artistic canon - was yet to be coined. He soon became a game changer, introducing abstractionism in graffti art, beyond the then prevailing letter based style. In 1982 he joined The Clash for the Combat Rock tour and created artwork for them. By the late ’80s he had become a leading light in New York's downtown gallery golden age, mixing with the likes of Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf. Since the ’60s his passion for steel-made human-powered machines has been growing steadily. “My love for cycling began when I was a child. In the late ‘80s I was a bike messenger in New York City riding on a fixed frame. Over the following decades, and after logging thousands of miles, I have consistently followed the grand tours, and have forever been a fan of this passionate sport. The opportunity to create a kit for CINELLI is beyond a dream come true. It’s a gift from God”. In 1997 McGurr started his own design studio, Futura Laboratories, collaborating with such brands as Nike, Uniqlo, Supreme and Levi’s. This Collection is studio’s latest creation.
