Nanamica Gore-Tex Field Jacket 

01

Images

01. Fully waterproof.
02. Made in Japan.

Words

A real standout in Nanamica’s already exceptional line of outerwear, the Field Jacket, made from cotton with a Gore-Tex inner layer, is a great choice for a waterproof jacket that looks a little more unique. The wool-blend collar featuring a high-fastening press stud is a nice touch and when flipped up is sure to keep the warmth in and the moisture out.

Weekend Viewing: A Portrait of Eliane Radigue (2009)

01

Video

—01. Produced by the Austrian Institute for Media Archeology.

Words

Not a recent video, but one that stands as an excellent look at the process of one of electronic minimalism’s pioneering artists, Eliane Radigue. She may appear completely unassuming, but Radigue has been pushing the envelope of synthesized music, almost entirely with her highly covetable ARP 2500, since the late 1960s. Her compositions are both simple in their reduction of elements and complex in their breadth of unfolding sonic minutiae. This short documentary provides a welcome glimpse into Radigue's world as well as her approach to crafting superior works of tonal minimalism – something she's been doing for nearly 50 years.

The Season by Yusuke Miyagawa

Images

—01-04. Four of twenty-nine.

Words

Shot at two of New York's legendary basketball courts – Rucker Park in Harlem and Bronx-based Hoops in the Sun – The Season by photographer Yusuke Miyagawa captures street ball in a new light. Tired of the standard imagery usually seen, he got up close to the action, running alongside the players at times, in order to put a fresh perspective on a classic action sport.

Nari Ward: Canned Smiles

01

Image

—01. Edition of 250.

Words

It's not rare for me to encounter homewares or art in people's houses that I find aesthetically pleasing or even beautiful. Unfortunately though, it is rare for me to come across decorative pieces that are downright confrontational. I'm not going to speak on the message of this piece by famed artist Nari Ward. I just think it's important for us all to display a few items that increase intellectual discourse as opposed to an array of bubblegum to fit a colour scheme – especially on all too relevant topics such as this.

01. Footage [Mixtape].
02. Kairo.

Words

Eric Dingus has become one of my favourite new producers in the last six months. Hailing from Austin, Texas, he's been working regularly with up-and-coming rappers, Jimmy Johnson and Dowrong. His mix for OVO's HAW weekend and a selection of instrumentals can be found on his SoundCloud page, along with his most recent work with Jimmy and a new release: Footage [Mixtape]. He's also produced two other compilations, 512 and Subliminal Innocence, which aren't available on his SoundCloud but are worth tracking down.

01

Video

—01. Film by Errol Rainey and Jasset Harlech.

Words

O.Ballou released this short film a couple of months ago to promote their debut collection. The grainy black and white imagery, rough editing and great choice of music give it a raw, Italian feel, highlighting the southern area of Napoli alongside a selection of the brand's first pieces.
