Words

New York-based photographer JIMA has been contributing to the Column section on the Nepenthes website since mid-May. Although I'm not able to read his handwritten entries, I've been enjoying the candid imagery that accompanies them, and look forward to seeing more as his Manhattan diary develops.

As fall collections continue to pour into shops, we give you a small preview of what's coming from Japanese label Niuhans. Todd Jordan captured a couple of images that provide some insight into the muted palette, classic tailoring and casual nature of the season's offering.

Oliver Peoples Gregory Peck Frames & Flip-Up Clip-On Lenses

01

Images

01. Raintree Gregory Peck Frames.
02. Rust Flip-Up Clip-On Lenses.

Words

These frames and clip-on tinted lenses from Oliver Peoples are a perfect pairing for those that require eyeglasses, but don’t relish the idea of carrying two cases and constantly switching between options for inside or out. The separate lenses created for the Gregory Peck model – based on Atticus Finch’s frames in To Kill a Mockingbird – are a great looking solution to the conundrum posed by eyeglasses without tint.

Words

The regular shop exhibits at South Willard offer yet another reason to stop by the small and selective LA store.

New High (M)art

Address

1720 N Vermont Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Words

Spending the last couple of days in LA has been nice, and a few retailers have stood out so far. The no camera zone, better known as New High (M)art, is one of them. A beautiful, relaxing and inviting space, it offers mostly womenswear, but there is a variety of incense, books, ceramics, accessories and some beautiful Kaptial footwear.

Developed for the Total Trattoria project, these coaster clusters were designed by London-based artist Martino Gamper.

01. Made in Japan.
02. Wool/mohair/nylon blend.

Words

Although New York summer is definitely in full swing, it's never too early to start daydreaming about fall. This cardigan would be the perfect garment to add to the fantasy as it includes nearly every fabric, texture, and colour that make Fall-Winter collections so superior to those aimed at the hotter months.

LVC 1967 505-0217 ‘White Nights’

01

Image

—01. 12 oz. Cone Mills denim.

Words

I don’t generally subscribe to pre-distressed denim, preferring to apply my own fingerprint to the aging process, but this version of the 505 from LVC looks like a perfectly worn pair of vintage jeans. The slim, straight cut is probably my favourite fit right now and Levi's have shown some welcome restraint in the distressing department, leaving you plenty of room to put your own stamp on them.
