Weekend Viewing: Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton

01

—01. DVD and CD set.

Words

This spring Stones Throw Records released a feature-length film documenting the birth and evolution of the label, and the people that made it possible. Peanut Butter Wolf can be credited with Stone Throw's direction and success – financially and artistically – so it's no surprise to find him narrating. The film provides intimate insight into an otherwise quiet group of musicians, from the early days and the death of Charizma to a peek at the prolific work of Madlib and the latest wave of artists to be signed. It's an inspiring and emotional look inside one of the most impressive independent record labels of our time.

—01. Translucent outsole.

Words

After missing out on the first release of Nike's Lunar Force 1, I've frequently been checking eBay for a pair in my size, but to no avail. Fortunately the latest version of the shoe might be even better. While I'm not 100% sold on the translucent sole, I much prefer the classic full leather upper.

Takeshi Omura Ceramics

01. Vase.
02. Bowl.

Words

After studying under well-known potter Keisuke Iwata, Takeshi Omura moved back to his hometown of Fukuoka, set up a kiln and began developing his own style. His pieces are recognizable by their almost metallic feeling, and seem to find the right balance between refined and rustic.

New Balance CRT300VW

Image

—01. Suede and mesh upper.

Words

The CRT300 stands out as a unique retro-inspired tennis shoe amongst all the others out there. Pairing CT300 styling – originally from 1979 – with a REVlite sole, the classic silhouette is given a modern update. An array of bright colours have been released, but this simpler white option is my preference.

Bermuda Trips Mashiko Pottery

—01. Black Glaze with White Drip Rim.

Words

Dean and Natsumi recently returned from a trip to Japan, filling their bags with new products for their Bermuda Trips website. There are some great Alumite bento and pocket snack boxes, some indigo bandanas and deadstock bottle openers, but my personal favorites are the handmade Mashiko pottery pieces. With several unique cups to chose from, this small sake cup is my pick of the bunch.
