—02. Gone out.

With the outdoor movement going as hard as ever in Japan, its nice to see this small project between Beams, Go Out magazine and Fuji Film. Capturing some interesting outfits and what appears to be a good time over all on film, nothing wrong with that.

Tembea Indigo Tote Bags

01

Info

—01. Available in two sizes, three colors.

Words

Tembea's fine range of bags continues to get finer. Their canvas goods have been picked up by a handful of retailers outside of Japan, however I haven't seen these indigo tote bags before. The nice shades of blue look so good together, it's tempting to get both sizes in different colors.

Words

With what started as a search for a ceramic vase ended up leading me to Jasper Morrison's online shop. It's filled with great items, some they've designed and some they just like. Included online is a nice selection of books and well designed objects, most of which anybody would find useful.

Look: Rusty Tonesen

01

Words

The climate in Vancouver right now is ideal for comfortable layering. A few layers of cotton with a little bit of wool is enough to get by. It also allows for spring accessories to add some color on the top and bottom. The Beams Plus socks are some of the best we've seen, now available in different colors and heights. They are the perfect hit between some earth tone pants and boots.

—01. Bauhaus, 1918-1928.

There are a few books I've been hunting for online, however when it comes to ebay it can be a tricky beast. Some days you'll get an incredible deal, and sometimes the item you want will just sit there, for 28 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. Buy it now. No 'or best offer', not really much of an option. Just waiting for it to run out, while it just waits for your patience to run out.

Straw ‘Napa’ Hats

01

Info

—01. Perfect for summer.

Words

Mark these ones up as wishful future thinking. It's not feeling anywhere near summer, and I doubt I could ever wear one of these even if I was trapped in an eternal heat wave, but they do look rather nice. The natural tones and light weight nature of the material feels like summer. I'm sure there is somebody out there who could make these look incredible.
