Our Legacy SS16 'Syndrome' Collection

Info

Photography: Erik Wåhlström
Art Direction: Andreas Doré

Words

The latest collection from Our Legacy, entitled 'Syndrome,' plays off a series of different ideas: the fleeting attraction to a piece of clothing found while traveling; the contrast between casualwear and uniform, and how they intersect; and the mix of extreme utilitarian detailing on light 'soft' styles that bear a borderline feminine aesthetic. The accompanying lookbook, shot by Erik Wåhlström and art directed by Andreas Doré, is one of the best from the Swedish brand, using a combination of colour and black and white imagery to illustrate these themes beautifully.

Pye Corner Audio – Prowler

Info

MTH008
Second pressing
Edition of 500

Words

"Building on the eldritch electronica of Martin Jenkins' four-volume Black Mill Tapes, comes Prowler: a seven-track collection of kosmische synthscapes that will appeal to fans of Broadcast and the Warp label. Cinematic in conception and approach, the LP wordlessly reveals a small-hours narrative of tension and fear, via creeping keys, fragmentary melodies and water-torture percussion."

The Margaret Howell Autumn-Winter '16 men's collection was presented at the brand's Wigmore Street store in London today. A mix of mainline and MHL pieces combined to create an effortless balance between the tailored and utilitarian styles that often define each label. Highlights included six-button double breasted jackets, long belted Mackintosh coats, and Dainite-soled Chelsea boots, while two-tone silk scarves and high-waisted cropped trousers formed a consistent thread throughout. View all 25 looks from the show by following the link below.

Wacko Maria Drunkard's Dream Shirt

01

Images

01. 100% cotton.
02. Chain stitch embroidery.

Words

A mechanic’s work shirt just this shade of green, often to be found in vintage stores, is something I’ve always kept an eye out for. This one, offered by Wacko Maria, raises the level a little bit with a mix of bold chain stitching and subtle stamped branding. The back is especially good, presenting the Japanese brand’s continual music references in a beautiful bowling-cum-filling station script. It's a great piece, even if you don’t like green as much as I do and want to play it safe with the black or navy version.

Richard Tuttle and Agnes Martin: Religion of Love

Info

Hardback
36 pages, 9.5 x 8 inches
1 colour, 14 B&W illustrations
Published by Walther König, 2016

Words

"Because Religion of Love (written in 1990s) is so late in coming out, we hope it worth the wait. As representative of one of the most important artist’s late thinking; on the one hand, it reconfirms her most classical thought (Beauty is the mystery of life), and, on the other, adds new thought with an urgency only found in a mature artist of her age and persuasion. One of the most rigorous of sensibilities, we do not know what she meant by uncharacteristically asking another artist, Richard Tuttle, to illustrate her text, for she, unlike he, had a clear understanding of the meaning of illustration. Knowing that, he took it up as much to fathom a friend’s genius after their passing, as well as the chance to say goodbye, life did not include, yet made available in publication. Hopefully, the reader can enjoy these various levels of interaction as art." Richard Tuttle, London, September 2014.

J.B. Blunk: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture

Info

5118 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90016
November 14, 2015 – January 23, 2016

Words

In November of last year, Gerard O’Brien, owner of the astonishingly good Reform Gallery in Los Angeles, opened his new space, The Landing, with an exhibition of work by the late American artist J.B. Blunk. Known for his immense redwood sculptures, Blunk’s list of influences is as impressive as his chainsaw carvings, having studied pottery with Laura Andreson at UCLA, and Rosanjin Kitaoji and Toyo Kaneshige in Japan. His lesser-seen paintings and drawings, also featured in this show, evoke a similar simplicity and connection to nature. The exhibition closes on January 23rd, leaving just over two weeks to take in the work of an under-appreciated West Coast legend.
