And this white boar, a female, stopped in this area where several rivers converge, and that is where the city of Milano was founded.” It was typical of Kean Etro to pause his pre-show collection description for an aside related to 590 BC and Chief Belloveso’s history-shrouded interaction with the mythical “scrofa semilanuta” (half-woollen boar) that was Milan’s first emblem.

During lockdown, you would walk around your building just to get a sense of moving your body. That became our idea of freedom,” she said on a video call from Athens.

Her confinement reflections took her Dior Cruise show to a birthplace of sports, the Panathenaic Stadium, where Ancient Greeks worked up a sweat circa 330 BC. “I decided to show

Ninja Gaiden Master Collection PS4 Review

The original Ninja Gaiden (well, not the original original on the NES) released in 2004 for the first Xbox (not the Xbox One, though the series has made its way onto that console as well). Two console generations later (three if you are lucky enough to have, and play on, a PS5), a remaster of a port that was itself a pseudo-remaster has arrived for the PlayStation 4, alongside its two sequels/remasters/ports.
