Words

Our editor-in-chief, Ryan Willms, was recently profiled on the beautifully exhibited interiors website, Freunde von Freunden. As part of an ongoing series with Vitra, the feature showcases Willms’ home, which reflects a cohesive sense of design that utilizes a number of their pieces alongside Alvar Aalto designed Artek furniture, Vitsoe 606 shelving, and a variety of other items that are personal to him. On top of the intimate view of his home, he also offers a glimpse into some his favourite activities and places to visit in Vancouver.

Band of Outsiders Americana Zip Shirt Jacket

Image

—01. Heavy cotton twill.

Words

This shirt jacket by Band of Outsiders builds on a classic military reference with a number of interesting details. Flap bellows pockets, a substantial brass zipper with contrasting tape either side, and their signature full-length box pleat combine to create something unique yet still wholly understated, like much of the brand's output.

—01. Released on October 31, 2014.

Words

The latest album from Grouper entitled Ruins was released earlier this year, having been recorded in 2011 while Liz Harris was staying in Portugal. Intimate, dark, dreamy and beautifully restrained, the record features a generally sombre tone, "living in the remains of love," as Harris puts it.

Padmore & Barnes Original P204 and P404

01. Hand-stitched moccasin toe.
02. Plantation crepe sole.

Words

Between 1964 and 1987 Padmore & Barnes was owned by Clarks, and when the Wallabee was introduced in 1967 it was made at their Kilkenny factory. For the next 20 years the Irish shoe manufacturer produced what is often considered the finest version of this style. The Wallabee is still part of the Clarks offering today, but like so many iconic designs it has drifted from its original form over the years. During this time Padmore & Barnes have quietly continued to make their own option, and those wanting the best possible rendition of this classic silhouette should look no further than the P204 and P404 models.

01. Tech Fleece Funnel Pullover.
02. ACG 2-in-1.

Words

Nike's relaunch of the ACG collection has been much anticipated, but I was a little skeptical when I first heard the news. It would have been easy to simply reproduce old styles and colourways in updated fabrics. However, by enlisting Errolson Hugh they've been able to push the collection forwards. The latest rendition of ACG appears to be an exciting step in the right direction, finding a balance between style and functionality which was always at the brand's core. The footwear is well done, but it's the outerwear and tops that are the most enticing.

Max Bill Variation 12 Poster

—01. Certified by the Max Bill Foundation.

Words

Max Bill’s poster designs may not receive as much attention as other Bauhaus schooled designers, but it is the basic tenets of ‘continuity’, ‘development’ and ‘invention’, not to mention the tasteful use of a variety of colours, that make his Variation series so successful as works of art that can be hung in any home. Released with permission from the Max Bill Foundation in 2007, these are a great, affordable option for adding some brightness to your wall.
