With a focus on pure, honest and quality goods - inspired and imported from Japan and Scandinavia, Mjölk offers one of the better retail experiences in Canada. The shop is run by couple John and Juli Baker, whom have done an excellent job in keeping the space minimal, balanced and varied. The selection includes furniture to tiny accents, all of which are selected for good reason.

Wtaps Fall Items

Info

—01. A variety of casual pieces.

Words

Haven has received another shipment from Wtaps, which includes their suede sneakers, fatigue pants and some simple cut and sew pieces. There are a handful of items I wouldn't mind picking up, unfortunately the Yen is still a bit to strong for my liking at the moment.

Post Overalls 5-Pocket Cords

Info

—01. Available in sand and sage.

Words

Post Overalls aren't especially known for their corduroy pants, but these 5-pocket bedford cords are some of the best I've seen this fall. While the sand color might be a little bit light for the dead of winter, I think they look great on a crispy, cool, dry wintery day.

Words

The LA based concept gallery and store IKO IKO, which focuses on high craft and design pieces, has just released the first issue of a new online journal entitled BLEACHED BLEACHED; which has been launched as a way to join the spirit behind the space with work by artists they admire. The first issue "Untitled" is by the Japanese photographer Akio Nishimoto, who's work is described as "using a variety of old and new digital camera technology", and who's image-making "shares the texture around a day, unfolding and folding back in".

Red Wing Irish Setter

Info

—01. Image via ACL.

Words

The re-release of Red Wing's classic Irish Setter leather was all over Japan. The brighter colored boots feel great and the color looks amazing in person. I also like the stamp used on the vintage inspired models. Unfortunately these won't be coming to our part of the market for a couple of seasons at least.

Rhodia Mouse Pad

Info

—01. Comes with 30 sheets.

Words

While in Japan I spotted this Rhodia mouse pad and couldn't resist the temptation of a semi-useful, nice looking piece of stationery. Their notepads are great, and easy to find, but I hadn't seen the mouse pad before. They have a sticky back so the traction is good on your desk, and they make for a convenient and functional notepad.

Words

The Porter Classic Gallery is one of their three small spaces within the International Arcade which nestled beneath the train tracks of Tokyo's Ginza neighbourhood. The space is home to monthly installations curated by Leo Yoshida. Coming off of a great Military Pop themed show last month, December features a really nice exhibit called Kage which is a collaboration between illustrator Mimoe and photographer Yanojin. Mimoe's handmade cuttings of her whimsical illustrations have been further brought to life by macro photos by Yanojin. The result is some really nice photographs of small scale life scenes which will be on display until the 29th of December.
