Mentalità Aperta (noun) directly translated from Italian means "Open Mind".
Current events, current state of the world - we felt compelled to share this concept once again and spread the word of "open-mindedness". Now more than ever, we as people need to be more open-minded. We need more compassion, more empathy despite some of our cultural differences, as humans we are much more alike than we are different. It's in this spirit of UNITY, we introduce the Mentalità Aperta Kimono. Driven by the original art piece "Parachute Mind" painted by #MDYTRI, this kimono was created to inspire us all and to remind ourselves that much like a parachute, our minds work best when they are open!
The Mentalità Aperta Kimono comes exclusively in Desert Khaki. Based on our signature Opus I platform and features a 3-piece tailored multi-weight pearl weave jacket with fully-taped seams, and an extra sturdy collar to minimize gripping opportunities for your opponent. The lightweight, ultra-durable pant features 5-piece engineered construction with a mix of 240gsm military-grade ripstop, a 380gsm pearl weave gusset, and an added layer seat patch for extra strength and comfort. If you own the Vanguard Opus I, Lusso or Rossini kimonos, then you will love the Mentalità Aperta. We have ADDED (L) sizes to A0, A1 and A2 - these are 4CM longer in the pant length and the sleeve length - that's the only difference in size chart.
