THE OUTLIERMAN LAUNCHES NEW LIMITED-EDITION T-SHIRTS

The Outlierman, makers of handcrafted luxury automotive inspired accessories, today introduces all-new limited-edition t-shirts to its Portrait Collection.

  • Bologna-based, The Outlierman, has launched all-new limited-edition t-shirts for its Portrait Collection
  • Incorporating iconic designs from the Portrait Collection, including the Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 356, these t-shirts were created following popular customer demand
  • Made of 100% Lisle Cotton Yarn for comfort, each t-shirt features a characteristic art portrait printed on a 100% silk satin patch
  • Each design will only be produced in 50 copies, making these t-shirts an authentic collector’s item
  • The Outlierman is an Italian company that creates luxury automotive inspired accessories for gentlemen drivers

Following popular customer demand, the Italian driving accessories company have launched two all-new t-shirts which incorporate two of its most iconic designs – the ‘356’s Portrait’, based on the Porsche 356, and the ‘E-Type’s Portrait’, centred around the Jaguar E-Type.

Limited to just 50 examples of each design, every piece features an authentic automotive art portrait created by The Outlierman’s talented design team, characterised by vivid brushstrokes and enriched by title and signature, for an even more exclusive result. Printed on a 100% silk satin patch that becomes the protagonist of a garment, with an elegant fit and versatile design, the t-shirt is suitable for free time as well as being worn under a jacket for an original and distinctive smart casual outfit.

A garment with comfort and exquisite aesthetic performance, each item is crafted using Lisle Cotton Yarn, the noblest variety of cotton yarns, produced by working the best long linden fibres with two or more twisted edges to obtain a soft and naturally shiny weave. Lisle Cotton Yarn owes its extraordinary breathable, anti-allergic and antibacterial properties to the use of a very fine cotton coming from the delta of the Nile river and processed according to a particular technique that has been handed down since 1850.

Meanwhile, silk satin is a fabric with a thousand-year history, capable of enhancing the chromatic choices of our designers thanks to an exquisitely shiny and uniform surface. The extraordinary brightness properties of this natural yarn are a precise choice of our designers, aimed at enhancing the chiaroscuro features and the expressiveness of the colours to create vivid designs like those of the Italian masters.

Andrea Mazzuca, CEO and founder of The Outlierman, said: “I’m thrilled to be able to share our all-new limited-edition t-shirts with our customers, featuring two of the most iconic designs from The Outlierman, which are works of art to wear and collect. Replicated in only 50 copies, these t-shirts are an authentic collector’s rarity and are the result of a 100% Made in Italy know-how: sketched, designed, produced and tailored in Italy by Italian talents.

“As one of the most recognisable cars in the world, the Jaguar E-Type is the pinnacle of automotive design and a car that will forever be associated with the swinging sixties. The Porsche 356 helped form the foundations for the marque as its first production vehicle, contributed to Porsche’s motorsports success and increased the brand’s popularity prior to the release of the 911.”

Customers can combine their limited edition t-shirts with other items from both the 356’s Portrait and the E-Type’s Portrait collections, such as a handmade cashmere and silk square scarf, a 100% twill silk bow tie, a 100% habotai silk pocket square and a 100% habotai silk scarf – all made in Italy.

About The Outlierman

The Outlierman was created by Andrea Mazzuca and Eleonora Dazzani in Bologna in 2015. Mr. Mazzuca chose to name the company ‘The Outlierman’ after reading Malcolm Gladwell’s book ‘Outliers: The Story of Success.’ One of the lines from the book that inspired Mazzuca is: ‘Who we are cannot be separated from where we are from.’ Hence, The Outlierman draws deeply on Italy’s inherent talent for beautiful design and consummate craftsmanship. A small, passionate team of 10 people designs each item in-house. All items are handcrafted by artisans in Italy, chosen for their world-class expertise in their relevant field. The Outlierman produces collections for discerning drivers, including: driving gloves, scarves, ties, bow ties, braces, pocket squares, bags and document cases. The Outlierman has been selected as a partner to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance since 2016 – considered by many as the world’s most prestigious automotive gathering and has collaborated with motor manufacturers such as Bentley, MINI and Pagani Auotomobili S.p.A. to create bespoke accessories. The Outlierman Magazine, which contains features on classic and contemporary cars, fashion, romantic road trips, events and more, is produced both online and in print.

ANDREW LLOYD: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION

In celebration of his 70th birthday, ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION was recently released through UMe / Polydor.

 

As one of the most successful composers of the modern era, Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s repertoire includes some of the world’s most celebrated musicals; Sunset Boulevard, Cats, Aspects Of Love, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Starlight Express, The Phantom of The OperaSchool of Rock and Love Never Dies – to name but a few.

Last year, Lloyd Webber became the only person to equal the record set in 1953 by Rodgers & Hammerstein with four shows running concurrently on Broadway (Sunset Boulevard, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera and School of Rock). Two of his shows are currently running in both Broadway and the West End: School Of Rock and The Phantom of the Opera, and his musicals have grossed more than $13.6  billion and have been watched by 302 million people across 44 countries. He has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.

The collection is personally curated and overseen by Lloyd Webber to include classics from his earliest work starting with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through his most recent School of Rock.

Of the new album, Lloyd Webber says: “I owe everyone involved in putting this compilation together a huge thank you.  A vast amount of thought has evidently gone into selecting tracks from my almost fifty year old career. This compilation brings back a heap of memories – it has made this ancient composer very happy.  I particularly love the new tracks and of course I love the orchestral suites. There’s nothing a composer likes more than hearing their melodies played by a cracking orchestra.”

Newly recorded songs from superstar artists Lana Del Rey (“You Must Love Me”, Evita), Nicole Scherzinger (“Memory”, Cats) and Gregory Porter (“Light at the End of the Tunnel”, Starlight Express) and add to the collection of his cherished works from the past five decades.

Of Lloyd Webber, Lana Del Rey says, “Andrew Lloyd Webber has been one of my primary inspirations in music, so to do a cover of one of his songs is a dream.”

Gregory Porter also expresses his admiration, “Andrew is an icon of not only musical theatre, but he’s an icon of music, our culture, and of our human experience.”

The Cats classic “Memory” by Nicole Scherzinger is available now as an instant grat track. Of being on the album, Scherzinger says, “Andrew’s music absolutely influenced me as an artist… It’s hard for me to fathom that I’m a part of one of Andrew’s career defining albums. That is in itself career defining for me. It’s a dream, and a lifelong accomplishment.”

The set also contains recordings by world-class performers such as Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Michael Ball, and released for the first time, Beyonce singing “Learn To Be Lonely” from the 2005 Academy Awards with Lloyd Webber accompanying on piano.

UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION is available as 2 CD and 4 CD editions. The 4-disc version contains an exclusive 40-page book with a personally penned introduction from Lloyd Webber and in-depth notes on each track, written by respected theatre critic and Lloyd Webber biographer Michael Coveney, together with tributes from Barbra Streisand and Glenn Close among others.

The fourth disc encompasses a mix of overtures and showstoppers from Lloyd Webber‘s key works, as well as newly created orchestral suites. The five new orchestral suites have been specially prepared from existing recordings, emphasising the grand orchestral aspects of his work. All CDs were mastered at Abbey Road Studios.

Lloyd Webber‘s productions have sold more than 330 million tickets worldwide. The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show on Broadway and second longest-running show in West End history. Cats and The Phantom of the Opera are two of Broadway’s four highest grossing shows. The Phantom of the Opera original cast album is the No. 1 Broadway album of all time in the U.S. and the #175 biggest seller among ALL albums of the SoundScan era in the U.S.  In addition to his worldwide sales and audiences, Lloyd Webber has been recognised by critics and peers with numerous accolades and awards including seven Oliviers, seven Tonys, three Grammys, one Golden Globe and an Oscar.
