Mani Fila Settanta Brown

From Matchday to Mani: Fila Settanta Mk1

Madchester legend & Stone Roses bassist, Mani, sports the latest Fila Settanta track top in choc brown on set for our forthcoming film, The Pebble & The Boy.

Earlier in the year we announced that we were working on another film called The Pebble & The Boy which follows the scooter journey of John Parker and a load of Mod memorabilia in between. A celebration of mod culture, retro casual fashion & a nineteen year old from Manchester who embarks on a journey from ‘Cottonopolis’ to Brighton in memory of his late father. Inspired by the music of Paul Weller & The Jam, the film captures John’s story after he inherits his estranged fathers house. The film also stars Gary Mounfield aka Mani from The Stone Roses.

Born in Crumpsall in North Manchester & an avid supporter of Man United, Mani played a vital role in the Madchester scene in the late 1980s & early 90s. His melodic & euphoric basslines, which featured on legendary songs like ‘I Wanna Be Adored’, became a signature sound for The Stone Roses, giving goose bumps along the way to many or in this case ‘Mani’ (excuse the pun). Mani recently featured on set for the forthcoming British film, The Pebble & The Boy, wearing the latest Fila Settanta track top which is now introduced in an updated choc brown & cream colourway.

The Settanta was born out of the original Pier Luigi Rolando designs and the highly respected White Line. First released in 1976, the Settanta Mk1 really set the bar for casual sportswear. Its bold colourways were introduced at the pinnacle of casual fashion, with Björn Borg championing the classic Fila style during his highly profiled and successful tennis career. To this day the Settanta still remains one of our most sought after & best selling products of all time.
