Laro Lagosta - First Love


As the first part of the show focuses on one’s first love for sneakers, Laro asked 7 people, whom he believed are important to the community, to share their experiences. He chose these people because, in his own words, he believes they ‘bring the sneaker community forward by sharing news, writing reviews, creating illustrations and photographing sneakers around the world.’ He gathered testimonials from folks all over Europe, including countries such as Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, France, UK or Italy and combined them all into one big exhibition.
The second part of the exhibition is inspired by the artist’s own first love of sneakers. He got his first pair - Nike Dunk Low in black, white and red - in 2006, when he was 18 years old.
This exhibition aims to be a reminder of his first sneaker love and of all memories, feelings and happenings from back in the day. Furthermore, it also celebrates other people’s first love for sneakers and puts the community in the spotlight.
