Carlo Rivetti Talks Passion and Innovation at Stone Island

A passion for product is what drives Carlo Rivetti, creative director and chairman of Sportswear Co. SpA, which manufactures the Stone Island brand.
Calling himself the “ideologist” behind the label, Rivetti said Stone Island was born in 1982 with an obsession and passion for product and product innovation.
Stone Island uses plating, coating, garment dying, copper, stainless steel, Kevlar, and reflective and heat sensitive materials for its garments. The Italian-based company has an in-house garment dying lab, where it can obtain 11 different colors on a garment, playing with the fabric, acidity of water, temperature, pressure and print. They have more than 60,000 dyeing recipes.
“My passion has always been to break boundaries. We always follow our ideas, and I’m sure that, sooner or later, the wave of fashion will hit us, and actually that happened,” he said.
Rivetti believes there are two key factors for Stone Island, one being the lab factor and a passion for research and experimentation. The central part is the product that includes shirts, pants, fleecewear, sweaters, coats and jackets. The second is that Stone Island gives status to its wearers. “The consumers feel important and proud when wearing Stone Island,” he said.

Lucy Liu Wants to #BringArtBackToSchools After Her Childhood Passion Changed Her Life

Lucy Liu has school art programs to thank for her success as an actress.

The Kill Bill star, 49, tells PEOPLE she mined her creativity by exploring her artistic hobbies at school. Growing up, Liu says, her parents didn’t encourage art in their home. The only time she could explore that side of herself, she says, was in school.

“It actually changed my life completely because since we were so math and science oriented,” she recalls. “When I started to get involved and do art on my own and at school in those programs, I was able to understand that I really wanted to have a creative life. Once I graduated from school I obviously pursued that and continued to pursue it even though my parents were not thrilled about that.”

That’s why Liu says she is partnering up with LIFEWTR, the premium bottled water company, and the brand’s “Arts in Education Series” on Arts Advocacy Day to drive conversation around the importance of arts in education and help #BringArtBackToSchools. On Monday, the actress posted about the campaign to her Instagram alongside a message on how her fans can get involved and help their local schools receive free art kits from LIFEWTR.

“Today, @LIFEWTR is announcing a commitment to reach one million students nationwide in the next year through curated curriculum, distribution of art supplies and local partnerships to champion this cause and inspire the next generation of artists like myself,” she wrote. “Please join me and share your story about how art has had a positive impact on you or someone you know, zip code and #BringArtBackToSchools. They’ll be donating art kits to classrooms in select schools across the country.”

The initiative combines two of the things Liu is most passionate about. As a mom herself to 2-and-a-half-year-old Rockwell Lloyd, the Elementary actress says it’s important to make sure kids explore their creativity when young.

“I have a few focuses. One of them is children, the other one is art and the other one is acting,” Liu says. “With kids especially, there’s a certain freedom that they have with the way they express themselves and that’s what we should tap into now. And what I love about what LIFEWTR is doing is they’re advocating for that and they’re advocating for people to have an opportunity to discover themselves as artists and to inspire other people.”

�dith Thomas: A Passion for Resistance:

�dith Thomas: A Passion for Resistance:


�dith Thomas (1909-1970), a remarkable French woman of letters, was deeply involved in the traumatic upheavals of her time: most crucially the resistance to Nazi occupation and the collaborationist Vichy regime, but also the Spanish Civil War and the Algerian War. During the occupation, she played an essential role in the struggle to counteract Nazi and P�tainist propaganda. She was the only woman in the Paris network of Resistance writers; they held their clandestine meetings in her left-bank apartment.Dorothy Kaufmann’s powerful and moving book is based in large part on previously unavailable material that �dith Thomas, a historian, novelist, and journalist, chose not to publish during her lifetime. A particularly fascinating chapter in Thomas’s life was her intimate relationship with Dominique Aury, who wrote Story of O as “Pauline R�age.” The astonishing documents made available to Kaufmann by Aury include Thomas’s eight notebooks of diaries, which she kept from 1931 to 1963; her fictional diary of a collaborator, written during the first year of the occupation; and her political memoir, to which she gave the disturbing title Le T�moin compromis (The Compromised Witness).�dith Thomas: A Passion for Resistance sheds light on the historical dimensions of Thomas’s life and work and on the autobiographical complexity of her writing, which everywhere illustrates her personal courage.

7 Rules to Live by for Those Who Live With Passion

This post originally appeared on BrandMentalist.com.

There are many ways to live life — there is no right or wrong. However, some of us believe in living a life full of passion — a life where you never feel bored, stagnant, or stuck — a life where you’re constantly excited and inspired. Without passion, life seems meaningless and mundane. To live a conventional life where we embark on a traditional job that doesn’t excite us is scary and dreadful. To live by the rules and marry someone boring is a life in imprisonment. You believe that to live is to always stimulate your senses, to feel, to experience, and to never be bored.

Below are the seven rules you live by.

1. Always find out what your passion is.

The first step to living a life full of passion is to find out what your passion is. Looking back to your childhood, you remember so vividly what you were passionate about, what you could spend hours on without feeling lonely, and what you felt proud of achieving as a kid. As you grow up, sometimes you feel overwhelmed with the responsibilities you have to take. But no matter how busy you are, you always find an interest outside of your role at work or your role as a family member. You always find your passion and make time for it. And if you’re lucky, you can successfully turn your passion into a career.

Your passion keeps your heart beating. It gives you room to breathe and space to relax — truly an inspiring gift to your soul!

2. Get obsessed with your passion.

Once you’ve discovered your passion, you give it all you’ve got and get to know it inside and out. Your passion becomes a huge part of who you are — a part of your identity. It is something you feel proud to call “your interest” as it helps build up your self-image and self-esteem. Even if you start out as an amateur or a beginner, you are determined to become an expert in it. You live and breathe it. It is almost always magical when you bump into someone who is as passionate about the same thing as you are. Your eyes light up when you talk about your passion. You feel energetic and enthusiastic about it. Even when your body is tired, your heart tells you to keep going. You can never imagine living a life without a strong passion for something.

You see the world through your passion — this is the only way you can live and the only way for you to really enjoy life.

3. Be open-minded and curious.

You live life with arms wide open and are open to opportunities especially in your field of passion. You try to listen and understand, rather than judge. By being open-minded, you get to learn more and experience more — shaping your perspective to see things from all angles and to find beauty in different things. Your inspiration is fueled by your curiosity. Your creativity is driven by your desire to learn.

You love meeting new interesting people who live with passion and are curious to learn more. The world contains limitless opportunities and the path of discovery just never ends.

4. Be spontaneous

To live life according to plans is to live a boring life. Your definition of life planning is more of a strategic thought-out process that gives you the ability to assess which approach is best. However, you keep your plan flexible. You are ready to jump on the plane whenever you need to. You are willing to say yes to random and spontaneous opportunities presented in front of you. You are not scared to commit to a decision made on the spur of the moment. In fact, it excites you to just jump right into something and see where it takes you.

Jumping out of your comfort zone gives you an adrenaline rush. Knowing that you have the flexibility and freedom to fly and run wild gives you comfort.

Life is fun. So why not embrace it and be a little unpredictable, right?

5. Love fully and deeply

Your passion in life goes beyond just your enthusiasm for your topic of interest. Your passion penetrates all parts of your life including love. You love fully and deeply with a passion. You don’t let it go dry or stale. You always find ways to spice up your love life. Sometimes you feel vulnerable because of this. But it is the only way to truly feel the emotional side of yourself.

Mediocrity and dull are not in your dictionary. It is to love passionately or nothing at all.

6. Be inspiring

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. — Pablo Picasso

Passion is contagious and the only way to be truly fulfilled is to inspire others. As your passion gives your life purpose and meaning, it would be a shame to keep what you know and what you experience to yourself. Telling your life’s story or showcasing your creativity to the world is a way to pass on your passion. You want to inspire others to feel better about life and themselves. You want to inspire others to do more, be more, and achieve more. At the end of the day, to feel uninspired and hopeless is the worst feeling ever. As you are someone who lives with passion and finds happiness and life’s joy through it, you want to inspire others to feel the same way.

7. Travel

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. — St. Augustine

Whatever your passion is, there are communities of people who are passionate about the same thing as you. Their perspective on it might be somewhat different. But the beauty of it is to appreciate the difference, to perceive things from the angles you haven’t seen, and to experience things you haven’t done. The beauty of art in a French artist’s perspective might be somewhat different from an American artist’s perspective. The beauty of electronic music to an English producer’s ears might be different to a German producer’s ears.

To travel is to expand the horizon of where your passion is confined.

4 Simple Ways To Reignite The Passion In Your Relationship

Even the strongest relationships can run into a rut. Whether you’ve been with your partner for months or decades, these four tips that experts shared on #OWNSHOW can help you reconnect and reignite the passion that brought you together in the first place.

1. Change your routine.

According to psychologist Alexandra H. Solomon, one of the most important things couples can do is refuse to become complacent or take the relationship for granted. In other words, it’s crucial to view each other with fresh eyes. To do this, Solomon suggests forcing yourselves out of a rut by changing your routine.

“If you’re going for weeks and weeks and weeks, and the only way you’re experiencing each other is in the kitchen [or] in the living room, I really encourage couples to shake it up,” she says. “Put yourselves literally in a different context.”

2. Make out more.

Kissing is key, says Dr. Lauren Streicher, an OBGYN and relationship author.

“We all know there’s a big difference between kissing your Great Aunt Matilda on the cheek and getting it over with as quickly as you can, versus the tongue-to-tonsils making out intimacy that is, of course, very sexual,” she says. “Kissing and kissing and kissing like you never want to stop is sometimes the most sexual thing you can do!”

3. Relax together.

Everyone needs their own personal time to relax and recharge occasionally, but sexual educator Dr. Debbie Herbenick also stresses the importance of relaxing together. This often allows couples the opportunity to better connect, which Herbenick says can really jump-start the passion.

“We hear about it all the time in research that it’s that relaxation intimacy that matters to sex drive,” she says.

4. Touch and make eye contact.

Making a physiological connection isn’t just a powerful way to reignite the passion, Solomon says, it’s also quite simple.

“When couples hold hands, turn toward each other and make eye contact, it’s very difficult to feel disengaged,” she points out. “It just kind of kicks off this whole… physiological process, reminding us who the other person is. It can kind of get the juices flowing and get couples started on the road to reconnection.”

Bonus tip: Instead of reaching for a bottle of ibuprofen next time you get a headache, research suggests that having sex may be the cure you’re looking for.

Clemente: The Passion And Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero

Clemente: The Passion And Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero


On New Year’s Eve 1972, following eighteen magnificent seasons in the major leagues, Roberto Clemente died a hero’s death, killed in a plane crash as he attempted to deliver food and medical supplies to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. David Maraniss now brings the great baseball player brilliantly back to life in “Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero, ” a book destined to become a modern classic. Much like his acclaimed biography of Vince Lombardi, “When Pride Still Mattered, ” Maraniss uses his narrative sweep and meticulous detail to capture the myth and a real man. Anyone who saw Clemente, as he played with a beautiful fury, will never forget him. He was a work of art in a game too often defined by statistics. During his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, he won four batting titles and led his team to championships in 1960 and 1971, getting a hit in all fourteen World Series games in which he played. His career ended with three-thousand hits, the magical three-thousandth coming in his final at-bat, and he and the immortal Lou Gehrig are the only players to have the five-year waiting period waived so they could be enshrined in the Hall of Fame immediately after their deaths. There is delightful baseball here, including thrilling accounts of the two World Series victories of Clemente’s underdog Pittsburgh Pirates, but this is far more than just another baseball book. Roberto Clemente was that rare athlete who rose above sports to become a symbol of larger themes. Born near the canebrakes of rural Carolina, Puerto Rico, on August 18, 1934, at a time when there were no blacks or Puerto Ricans playing organized ball in the United States, Clemente went on to become the greatest Latino player in the major leagues. He was, in a sense, the Jackie Robinson of the Spanish-speaking world, a ballplayer of determination, grace, and dignity who paved the way and set the highest standard for waves of Latino players who followed in later generati

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative


Right now, there is no city in the United States hotter, cooler, or more it than Nashville, TN. With a booming economy, a great quality of life, and a creative, collaborative entreprepeneurial community, Nashville is on the short-list of living and travel destinations for passionate and innovative minds. As many newspapers, magazines, and websites have pointed out, one of the critical components to Nashville''s growth and popularity is it''s thriving and cutting-edge music, culinary, and artistic communities.
Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is an elegant collection of interviews by Nashville writer Lily C. Hansen, highlighted by stunning, black & white photography from some of Nashville''s finest photographers, that captures the drive, passion, and innovation of several prolific Nashvillians who have thrived in – and helped drive — the art, culinary, and music industries. Also included are several wild card personalities: those who possess talents that defy labeling and elipse categorization. Word of Mouth is an inside look at the exploding community of Nashville and a multifaceted portrait of the intellectual and inventive capital that makes the city hum with energy.
It''s title reflects what makes Word of Mouth special: by interviewing each of these personalities, Word of Mouth relies on the classic form of intimate conversation to gain insight and understanding of each personality while also capturing the organic and tried-and-true method – word of mouth — through which each have attracted their fan-base and support network. Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is a testament to Nashville''s incredible mixture of artistic talent but also it''s zest for collaboration, rather than competitiveness: similar to the artistic community''s nonexistent hierarchy, up-and-coming talent is interviewed alongside illustrious, internationally-recognized artists.
While Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations focuses on the creative entrepeneurs of Music City, it is a book that knows no geographical limits; it is for every creative entrepreneur, everywhere. As a collection of anecdotes, quotes and wisdom shared by those pursuing their dreams or those who have already obtained commercial fruition, it presents the stories and the insights that any innovative mind, young and old alike, needs to hear as they follow their heart and pursue their own creative path.

War Cloud’s Passion

War Cloud’s Passion


A dangerous passion. Legendary Warrior, Book 2At twenty-three, Anna Wiley is lucky. The children aboard an orphan train headed west don’t care that their nurse is too tall, too homely to be loved. They need her, and she will not rest until each one is placed in a loving home, including the last twelve bedraggled, rejected urchins clinging to her skirts. When their train is attacked by a band of warriors bent on rescuing a kidnapped Indian boy, she doesn’t think twice about protecting the children—all the children, including the boy. Except keeping her charges safe means she must trust the formidable warrior who led the attack. War Cloud plans to get the strong-willed white woman and her gaggle of children off his hands as soon as possible. Yet as he guides them toward civilization, he realizes there is beauty beneath Anna’s ill-fitting clothes, a strong spirit behind her sparkling green eyes. Even as passion grows, War Cloud prepares to put her from him, and not only because of the animosity that hangs between their cultures. A centuries-old curse hangs over his ancestral line. A spell that could take her from him forever—should he dare to fall in love. This book has been previously published. Warning: Contains a passion that could lead to soul-stirring love, if the whispering ancestors have their way.

This Woman Quit Her Corporate Job To Fulfill Her Lifelong Passion For Cakes

Late last year, baker Nikki Lee of the Sydney, Australia cake shop Unbirthday took a leap of faith and left her corporate sales job in order to pursue her passion for sweets full-time.

It wasn’t that she was unhappy at her previous job. In fact, Lee worked for a great company, respected her managers and valued the integrity of the work. But she wasn’t wholly satisfied.
2014-05-07-oPRETTYUNBIRTHDAYCAKE5705714.jpg
“Although I was happy in my job and doing all the things that ticked ‘success’ boxes, I knew I would always be settling for the easy path if I didn’t choose to bake,” she told The Huffington Post in an email. “I would have these beautiful, styled pictures of cakes and desserts cut out from magazines and pinned to my cubicle walls at work, reminding me that what I was ultimately working towards was having the time and space to be able to get into my baking.”

In April, Lee’s fiancé Thomas posted a photo of one of her confections to Reddit, writing, “Fiancé who quit her job to follow her dream just completed her first wedding cake commission.” The photo of the wedding cake (see right) garnered more than 2,500 upvotes on the site, and one commenter called it “the prettiest cake I’ve seen.”

How’s that for validation? Lee opened up to HuffPost Weddings recently about her life-changing decision.

What was the moment that you finally decided to quit your job and start Unbirthday? Was there one specific event that pushed you over the edge?

I have always been a big believer in pursuing personal passions, whether it be in your career or as a hobby. You could say “The Moment” came when I did my yearly evaluation of my life, something that I do in September around my birthday every year. I give themes to each year — for example, my 30th year was the “Year of Full Engagement”. Thirty-one was the “Year of Learning and Practice”.

I decided my 32nd year would be the “Year of Wholeheartedness.” I took the time to question what this meant for me, and what it would look like if I was living my life “wholeheartedly”. I decided it was important to immerse myself in doing things that I truly loved. Cake-creating was one of those things that I knew I had to do if I was really honest with myself. I also felt strongly that I was at a crossroads in my life — that I could stick to corporate work and climb the ladder, or I could let that idea of myself go and explore my creative side. I also saw this year as a small window of time where I had no major financial obligations in the form of a mortgage or any children that were relying on me, so I could afford to focus my energies on this process.

How long had you been dreaming of pursuing baking full-time?

Since I was a kid! Unbirthday is me as an adult fulfilling what I wanted to do as a child. I remember not wanting dolls or dresses for Christmas, but would dream of the day I would own my own cake mixer.

2014-05-07-rMINIMERENGUElarge5705714.jpg

What role did your fiancé play in your decision? Was he supportive?

Thomas just proposed last week! He was a true supporter of me and still is to this day. He posted my photos on Reddit as a surprise. He keeps me grounded every day, but still pushes me to fly. He continually checks in with me to see how everything is going, always encouraging me forward. He’s happy to be my taste tester for new creations, and actually volunteers to clean up the kitchen while I work. A girl couldn’t ask for more in a partner!

How did other people in your life (friends, family) react when you told them that you quit your job?

They were supportive and are also used to me making these kinds of life-changing decisions. I dropped out of university when I was 19 to start my own graphic design business. My parents freaked out, and in hindsight, I understand why! I was young and overly confident, thinking I was invincible in my twenties. But that was the time in my life to do some invaluable learning and pick up some fantastic life skills that I wouldn’t have learned if I went down a more conventional path.

2014-05-07-rREDDITCAKElarge5705714.jpg

What was your biggest fear about going out on your own?

The most difficult thing was sharing something that was quite personal to me with others. This surprised me a lot, as my last role required me to make cold calls to prospective clients and sell them things. I know a lot of people would rather die than do that, but I loved it and found it easy. With Unbirthday, yes, I am selling cakes, but it is also a form of personal and creative expression which I initially felt quite self-conscious about showing others.

The other hard part was letting go of how I identified myself professionally. I went from being a corporate business development manager to a baker. It made me realize how much we identify and judge people based on what is written on their business cards. Shedding my old identity was hard, but it kept me true to my intentions.

I believe everyone has got their own version of “Unbirthday” somewhere, bubbling away under the surface. I just wanted to make sure that I was able to tell myself that I had given my dreams a real chance, regardless of what the outcome would be. One of my favorite sayings is, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” This is my mantra for life and Unbirthday.

2014-05-07-rFLOWERCAKESLICElarge5705714.jpg

What does your typical day look like since you started Unbirthday?

I wake up early when I can, and do a round of tai chi training with my father (both my parents are tai chi instructors). Then, I’ll either be fulfilling orders or experimenting with new ideas for cakes. I work from my kitchen at home, so it’s quite relaxing with very little pressure.

Was leaving your other job worth the risk?

Yes, without a doubt. It’s one of those things that I can check off my life’s to-do list — nothing more satisfying than that!
