To celebrate the launch of the ‘For now’ collection Gramm is joining forces with Antù, a cultural hub in the heart of Lisbon, which has rapidly become a mecca for creatives and artists in the city.
This meaningful cultural exchange was the result of an organic connection between the two stalwarts at the helm of each brand, Manchester’s AK Gramm and Sao Paulo born skater Igor Morozini. When asked about Antú’s magnetism, and what made the 29 year old all-rounder want to return to commemorate the launch of Gramm’s latest collection, AK replied “I felt really a part of it, like you got welcome with open arms. And that’s what I [sic] do in Manchester. And that’s what I’m trying to do. So that’s why I came here. And I’m like, I feel at home here”.
Whilst the event is the first string in a bow of activities that will continue to build the bridge between Manchester and Lisbon, as two European culture capitals. The party celebrates a like-mindedness which has long been felt between the people that reside in each city, and if AK and Igor are the two driving forces, the passengers they bring along in the lineup remind us exactly why.
Providing the sounds on the night will be a blend of DJs representing the Gramm collective, as well as, Lisbon’s own Bacchanalia soundsystem:
AK Gramm [MCR]
Tee O [MCR]
Bleu Hagra [LIS]
Circa Papi [LIS]
Inviting the crowd to a sonic mashup of sounds, from Amapiano, UK Funky, House and Garage to homegrown sounds like Portuguese Batida.
And to make sure you don’t forget the moment, there will be exclusive limited-edition Gramm x Antù merch available on the night, along with a manny-fied culinary menu to let the locals know that Gramm woz ere.
Don’t miss out on this momentous link up on Friday 24th February. A party truly curated FOR THE CULTURE, BY THE CULTURE.
