Acne Shay Jacket

—01. 85% wool, 15% cashmere.

Words

A nice all-season style from Acne, the Shay Jacket is made from a blend of felted wool and cashmere. The soft, navy blue fabric and cut of the shoulder are the highlights, and while I could personally do without the taper towards the waist, it's a very wearable piece that's reminiscent of something Raf would have done at Jil Sander.

Kaari Collection for Artek

01. Small round shelf.
02. Wall console.

Words

The design world is abuzz regarding Artek’s latest furniture collection, which debuted at the 2015 Stockholm Furniture Fair. Conceived by French design duo, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, it features rectangular and round tables in two sizes, a desk, a wall console, a small round shelf and a selection of large wall-mounted shelving units, all of which utilize wooden and steel components. The press release details the marrying of these two elements best: "The principle is extremely simple: the vertical load is supported by a wooden part and a bent steel band embraces the contours of this solid wooden piece. The steel band draws a kind of wing bracket-angle that supports the ensemble and creates a linear and rhythmic silhouette."

—01. Two-ply duck canvas upper.

Words

This month Converse are launching an updated and upgraded version of the Jack Purcell. The simple sneaker has long been an iconic style, but this premium edition, which – to name a handful of the 18 new features and benefits – includes a two-ply duck canvas upper and an Ortholite insole embedded with Nike Zoom Air Technology, is a welcome addition to the brand's offering that is likely to be a huge success.

Review: Phill Niblock – Nothin To Look At Just A Record

01

—01. Rereleased on Superior Viaduct.

Words

Phill Niblock has long been one of the central protagonists of the NYC loft scene, holding concerts through his Experimental Intermedia label since 1968 and producing some of the richest and most splendid, long-form drone music in the nascent genre’s history. His first album, Nothin To Look At Just A Record, sources its sounds from recording continuous tones, in this case trombones, which are then densely layered. The product announces an idiosyncratic approach to creating music that would continue throughout his multi-decade career. Superior Viaduct's 2013 rerelease of his 1982 debut is sold out at the source, but copies can still be found of this great, early record from a real legend in the underground music world.
