Hermannajakki í minningu Lofts Gunnarssonar

Loftur Gunnarsson fæddist þann 11. september 1979 í Reykjavík. Hann lést þann 20. janúar 2012 aðeins 32 ára gamall og er hans sárt saknað. Í kjölfar andláts hans var stofnaður Minningarsjóður Lofts Gunnarssonar sem berst fyrir bættum hag utangarðsfólks á Íslandi.

Loftur ólst upp meirihluta ævi sinnar í Garðabænum hjá móður sinni og stjúpföður. Hann á tvö eldri alsystkini og eina yngri hálfsystur. Sem barn var Loftur mjög ljúfur og duglegur í íþróttum. Jafnframt eyddi hann miklum tíma á hjólabretti með vinum sínum. Loftur átti marga vini og var mjög góðhjartaður. Hann var einnig mikill áhugamaður um tónlist og útskurð í við.

Margir þekkja til Lofts úr miðbæ Reykjavíkur en hann eyddi miklum tíma þar síðustu ár. Hann drakk mikið og var um tíma á götunni. Hann gisti á löngum tímabilum í gistiskýlinu. Hann hafði mikinn áhuga á list og skreytti gjarnan sjálfur þau föt sem hann klæddist eða breytti þeim svo þau féllu að hans stíl. Margir þekktu Loft á hermannajakka sem hann klæddist gjarnan. Jakkanum breytti hann sjálfur og var hann því einstakur. Nonni í Dead setti nokkur print á jakkann fyrir Loft og ýmislegt bættist á jakkann með tímanum svo sem barmmerki og nælur ofl. Jakkinn verður eins nákvæm eftirgerð og mögulegt er af upprunalega jakkanum. Markmiðið er að safna fyrir framleiðslu á jakkanum í minningu Lofts sem hefði orðið 35 ára 11. september 2014.

Heimsíða minningarsjóðsins: www.lofturgunnarsson.com

Allur ágóði af framleiðslu jakkans mun fara í næsta verkefni Minningarsjóðs Lofts Gunnarssonar sem er að kaupa 8 ný rúm á heimili fyrir heimilislausa karlmenn á Njálsgötu 74. Sjóðurinn hefur nú þegar komið af stað nauðsynlegri umræðu í þjóðfélaginu um aðbúnað útigangsfólks á Íslandi. Fyrsta markmiði sjóðsins var náð þegar keypt voru 20 ný rúm í Gistiskýlið í Þingholtsstræti árið 2013. Í byrjun árs 2014 var svo öðrum áfanga náð þegar sjóðurinn keypti 9 rúm í Konukot ásamt fleiri félögum.

Jakkinn kemur bæði í herra og dömu stærðum.

Herra jakkarnir koma í stærðum :

Small- Medium - Large - Extra Large.

Small samsvarar stærð 46-48 í jakka
Medium samsvarar stærð 50 í jakka
Large samsvarar stærð 52 í jakka
X-Large samsvarar stærð 54-56 í jakka

Dömu jakkarnir koma í stærðum :

X-Small - Small - Medium - Large

X-Small samsvarar stærð 36 í jakka
Small samsvarar stærð 38 í jakka
Medium samsvarar stærð 40 í jakka
Large samsvarar stærð 42-44 í jakka

Þegar jakkarnir eru tilbúnir þá mun verða haft samband við kaupendur til að staðfesta stærð á jakkanum.

Army jacket in memory of Loftur Gunnarsson

Loftur Gunnarsson was born on September 11th 1979 in Reykjavik. He passed away on the 20th of January 2012 only 32 years old. His family and friends started a memory fund in his name that fights for the homeless in Iceland.

Loftur was raised in Garðabær most of his life with his mother and step father. He has two older siblings and one younger half sister. As a child Loftur was very sweet and had much interest in sports. He also spent a lot of time skateboarding with his friends. Loftur had many friends and a very kind heart. He really liked music and cutting out in wood.

Many people know Loftur from downtown Reykjavik where he spent a lot of his time the last years. He drank much and spent a part of his life on the streets. He was really interested in arts and often changed and decorated his clothes so they would fit his style. Many people knew him by the army jacket he so often wore. He had decorated the jacket himself so it was really unique. The local designer Nonni from the label Dead added prints on the jacket and during the time Loftur wore the jacket he added things like safety pins and badges and the jacket will be as close to the original jacket when re-produced. It is our goal to raise money for the production of the jacket in memory of Loftur who would have turned 35 years old on September 11th 2014.

The webpage of the Memory Fund: www.lofturgunnarsson.com

All profits from the production of the jacket will go to the next project of The Memory Fund of Loftur Gunnarsson which is to buy 8 new beds for a home for homeless men on Njálsgata 74. The fund has already started a necessary discussion in society about the homeless in Iceland. The first goal was reached when the fund bought 20 new beds for the mens homeless shelter in Reykjavik. In the beginning of 2014 it reached the second milestone along with other parties when they bought 9 new beds for the women's homeless shelter in Reykjavik.

Frosti Gringo myndaði Loft á nokkrum tímabilum á ævi hans. Hann gerði stuttmynd sem er hér klippt í styttri útgáfu í tilefni þess að Pétur Ben samdi lagið Kings of the underpass sem hann samdi um Loft. Loftur klæðist einmitt jakkanum í byrjun myndbandsins.

A song by Pétur Ben about Loftur Gunnarsson, a beautiful young man who went astray in life and passed away at the age of 33. Loved and missed by all who ever met him.
The video features Loftur through many different stages of his often troubled life. The video is a edited part of a short film that Frosti Gringo made about Loftur.
