Nonnative Spring Items

—01. Dweller LS Crew.
—02. Doctor Long Shirt.

Words

Nonnative had a strong fall collection, and it looks like they're continuing the momentum this spring. These are two of the more casual pieces, but the soft navy cottons and comfortable silhouettes make them rather appealing.

Paul McCobb Fiberglass Chairs

01

—01. Designed for St. John Seating Co., NY.

Words

Affectionately referred to as the 'Origami Chair' because of its folded appearance, this design by Paul McCobb is my favourite of the many mid-century fiberglass options. The Charles and Ray Eames 'Shell Chair' might be more recognizable but it's become quite ubiquitous, with knock-offs and copies running rampant. The faceted angles of McCobb's design, however, really stand out and it is a rare gem that proves much more elusive.

orSlow x Fennica Kenneth Jacket

01

Image

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

orSlow and Fennica's collaborations have been catching my eye over and over again for a few seasons now. This jacket is a pretty faithful reproduction of a 20th century chore coat, but the fit is more modern and ultimately more wearable. The rich indigo blue colouring and pink bar tack reinforcements add some interest, as well as the fabric, which is destined to be as good as all of orSlow's other products.

Weekend Listening: Mood Hut Records

Info

aka P.S.S.
1. Bubble World
2. Love Theme
3. Temple Walk

Words

Since a large contingent of my colleagues reside in Vancouver, I figured it was a good time to highlight a very promising young crew growing out of the same waterlogged roots they call home. The various producers all release under the banner of Mood Hut Records, a new label pushing their unique sound of dubby, aquatic, left field house music. Their newest record is by Pender Street Steppers, possibly the most UK-influenced release of their catalogue. Also make sure to check out Ttam Renat's wonky workouts, as well as Cloudface's molasses-soaked Chicago cuts.

SIWA iPad Case

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 29cm x 22cm.

Words

Well designed and interesting device cases are certainly not the norm. Trying to find an iPad sleeve one might want to use on a daily basis is a daunting task. This option however, made out of highly tear and water-resistant Naoron paper, will keep your screen free of scratches and fingerprints between uses, while also offering a level of attractive simplicity.

Nike Gyakusou Spring-Summer '14

—01. Sweat Map 3/4 Top.
—02. 5" Woven Shorts.

Words

The spring collection from Jun Takahashi's Gyakusou collaboration with Nike seemed to receive a little less hype than usual this season, however it was still full of great technical running pieces. Subtle in design and more muted in colour, the focused offering included a series of 'Sweat Map' tops, lightweight shorts, and various versions of the updated Lunarspeed AXL.

Honeyee opened a new online store this week featuring a handful of brands and a couple of exclusive items. One of my favourite pieces on offer is this black Coach Jacket by C.E, which features the brand's longhand name on the front and a large circular graphic on the back.
