For the 25th anniversary of Slam Jam, the Italian company has collaborated with Carhartt WIP, a frequent partner throughout their existence, to produce five themed programs designed under the creative direction of Andrew Bunney. After launching a series of putty-coloured canvas items in February, the second drop is denim focused and the pieces feature classic Carhartt styling alongside modern fits and exclusive details. Expect more to come in the coming months as the 25th anniversary celebrations continue, with three more capsule collections due to be released.

The Last Art College: Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, 1968-1978

01

Image

—01. Published by MIT Press, 2012.

Words

I love reading about educational institutions that while highly influential, were also experimental and pushing the envelope of their respective fields. This includes, for instance, the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, or the Free University of New York. The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, however, is slightly different because, unlike these schools, it is still in operation. This book focuses on NSCAD's heady years between 1968 and '78, an era when such luminary figures as Joseph Beuys, Sol LeWitt, Gerard Richter and Donald Judd, among others, were visiting artists and faculty members. Written by Garry Neill Kennedy, the president during this period, The Last Art College documents an incredibly interesting time for one of the most influential art colleges of the 20th century.

Adidas ZX500 OG Made in Germany

—01. Deer leather upper.

Words

Adidas has had an incredible amount of success so far this year with limited releases. You can surely add their Made in Germany footwear offerings to that list, utilizing clean, white and cream treatments in premium leather. Of the two styles the brand has chosen to produce in its home country, my choice is the ZX500 for its no-nonsense heritage running aesthetic and attractive silhouette, making for the perfect spring shoe.

Bourbonese Qualk: 1983–1987

01. Available on vinyl or CD.
02. Includes remix by Ancient Methods.

Words

Bourbonese Qualk are the latest seminal Industrial group to get a reissue, and I couldn't be less upset about it. Beyond the fact that they made teeth shattering, pioneering music, they were also incredibly important to the underground fight against a quietly fascist period of British history. In a time when it's seemingly considered uncool for musicians to be political, this group are an unfriendly reminder that if you don't have a message, you're nothing at all.

Rebuild by Needles Coach Jacket

01

Image

—01. 50% cotton, 50% polyester.

Words

The last few seasons have seen a real upswing in the popularity of the coach jacket style, but none have stood out as distinctly as this Rebuild by Needles version. Constructed from repurposed army surplus garments, and adorned with chest pockets, button plackets and name badges, it would be pretty tough to confuse this with any of the more overtly bland options available, by obvious comparison of course.

Victor Moscoso: Psychedelic Drawings 1967-1982

01

Image

—01. Illustration for Zap Comix, No. 2.

Words

For those unable to catch the current exhibition at the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York, featuring the psychedelic poster and comic book art of underground figure Victor Moscoso, you might want to pick up this 96-page retrospective catalogue. Known predominantly for helping to define the vocabulary of rock concert poster designs in the late '60s, some of his most mind-altering work comes from his contributions to Robert Crumb’s Zap Comix.

Words

Included in the offering at Working Title this spring, you'll find a handful of shirting options from Gitman Vintage. The Pennsylvania-made shirts have become a seasonal staple, but each new collection still feels fresh and interesting thanks to the brand's consistent use of unique fabrics and patterns.

Alisa Baremboym at 47 Canal 

Info

47 Canal
291 Grand Street, 2nd Floor
New York, NY 10002
March 1 – April 5, 2015

Words

Two things that have appeared to fascinate humans more than anything else throughout the ages are war and sexual reproduction. That is just one of the reasons why Alisa Baremboym's beautiful contraceptive incorporating sculptures of shrapnel devices really strike a chord, but it is far from the only theme explored in her new show Conflict (process), which is currently on display at 47 Canal.
