Recent Discovery: Kaleidoscope Magazine

01 02

—01. The Italian Issue.
—02. On Cinema As Public Space by Manuel Segade.
—03. Like A Whisper by Chris Sharp.
—04. The Suburbs by Michele D'Aurizio.

Words

I've mentioned this before but I quite often find myself arriving late to the party. In this most recent figurative case I have only just begun to pay closer attention to a title I'd seen on various tables and racks over the last several years. Of course I'm now cursing my lazy thumbs, and figuring out how best to play it off like I've been wise to this publications excellence from the get-go. Kaleidoscope Magazine is an international arts and culture quarterly, but I won't attempt to summarize the varied and interesting content that's on offer each issue here. Instead I'll just recommend you find a copy posthaste, and join me in pretending you've had it on your bookshelf all along.

The latest concept on show at the Nepenthes Gallery space is a trading post featuring traditional and hand crafted pieces of clothing, footwear and jewelry sourced from New Mexico, and displayed by the South2West8 brand. The trading post opens on October 14th, and looks well worth a visit should you live, or find yourself, in that part of the world.

Human Made Corp Hat

01

—01. Olive herringbone.
—02. Unlined.
—03. 'Bridge between Human and Inhuman'.

Words

Human Made seems to have hit the market in the UK pretty hard this season, although none of the accounts seem to have picked up this great military hat. It's one of the more simple items, and with no exterior branding, nice fabric choice and an ideal size, it's one of my favorites from Nigo's new collection.

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Wtaps. I don't own too many of their products as a lot of them don't fit with my general style, but the brand has always resonated with me in some way. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think it has something to do with their overall attention to detail and the depth of reference that surrounds everything they do. If you aren't aware of how much thought goes into the brand, or simply like seeing behind the scenes, the Wtaps blog is a good place to spend some time.

Words

I stumbled across this site while searching for a particular Sassafras shirt, completely forgot about the shirt and spent the next 25 minutes browsing around and dragging images onto my desktop. You should do the same.

—01. Sleeve detail.
—02. Metal buttons.
—03. Thin navy knit.

Words

I've always wanted to have the SNS Herning NAVAL sweater in a plain color. This fall the piece is available in some classic versions sans stripes. This is a great shade of blue and the silver buttons look perfect on the shoulder.

Nepenthes Asymmetric Gibson by Tricker's

01 02

Images

—01. Burgundy.
—02. Tan.
—03. Dark Brown.
—04. Navy.

Words

If you want a traditional brogue these probably aren't for you. If, on the other hand, you want something a little more unusual, they might be worth tracking down. More and more brands are collaborating with classic shoemakers, but few are producing anything genuinely unique. Nepenthes, however, are one of the exceptions and this is always evident in their work with Tricker's. Asymmetric toe pieces may seem like an odd twist, but they give the shoe a subtle character, and combined with a suede upper, it's one I'm definitely a fan of.
