Words

There are plenty of interviews on Freunde von Freunden where metropolises such as New York, Paris or London play a central role, but for me some of the most interesting insights can be found in the places I've never visited. That's certainly the case with this look at Athens, home of Kennedy magazine publisher, photographer and DJ, Chris Kontos, which offers a glimpse into the personality of one of Greece's up-and-coming creatives, alongside some of his usual haunts.

Words

This spring Neighbour have been busy. Last month they opened their second store in Gastown, Vancouver, which focuses on an edited selection of womenswear from the likes of Acne, Lemaire, Sunspel, Common Projects and Stephan Schneider, with accessories by Rowena Sartin, Casa Malaspina and Mismo, among others. The new store compliments the Neighbour brand and aesthetic, while providing a long overdue retail destination for females in the neighbourhood. This week they have also relaunched their webstore to include the women's offering, alongside new deliveries for men from Patrik Ervell, Our Legacy and Frank Leder.

Lone Wolf Sweeper Boot

Words

Handmade in Japan by Lone Wolf, Toyo's footwear line, these simple, rugged boots are a great choice for something a little different to similar North American-made styles. Adding to their appeal, the cost is more inline with top quality domestic work boots than the exorbitant price tags Japanese footwear often gets saddled with.

Weekend Listening: John Carpenter's Lost Themes

Words

Recently released on the always outstanding Sacred Bones Records, John Carpenter’s Lost Themes takes a step away from the icy, repetitive synth scores he usually pairs with his filmmaking efforts to concentrate on compositions unconnected to the visual medium. His work on films such as The Fog, Halloween and Escape from New York ranks as some of the best and most distinct synthesizer-based music in cinema. These are all fantastic listens in their own right, so I am excited to hear what he has done with the impetus of composing entirely for a standalone album. I've picked up a copy but have not yet found the time to play it; I look forward to taking that opportunity this weekend – free of distractions, to fully digest an unexpected release from one of filmmaking's most interesting composers.

Adonde at Totokaelo

Words

The modern and inspirational Seattle-based retailer, Totokaelo, always has an interesting selection of unique items in their Art-Object section. You can add the French company, Adonde, to that list, from which they have recently received a large selection of ceramic pieces. The modern forms fit perfectly on a shelf next to the shop’s other offerings, with the hallmark of these designs being vaguely futuristic vertical walls and solid colours that renounce the organic, handmade feel of other pottery and imbue these everyday objects with a decidedly contemporary feel.

Varela Versus at Howard St

Info

Howard St
3 Howard Street
New York, NY 10013
March 6 – April 5, 2015

Words

Varela Versus has one of the strangest concepts you'll come across in a gallery, claiming the art included revolves around a lawsuit between Ja Rule, MTV Cribs and some rich homeowner in Miami. And while this may seem absurd, it totally makes sense when you're walking around the show. Louis Eisner's lavish and twisted palace interior shots, Dylan Lynch's mangled modernist furniture, and Erika Ceruzzi's wonky Miami workout bars all help to make it a very transformative viewing experience. The show closes this weekend, so you have just enough time to check it out for yourself.
