Weekend Viewing: Hearts of Darkness – A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

Words

Aptly titled, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse is culled from documentary footage shot on the set of Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola’s wife, Eleanor. It shows the unraveling of the director due largely in part to his having to finance the film out of his own pocket, but also under the constraints of a civil war, a typhoon, Martin Sheen’s mid-shoot heart attack, endless studio gossip and Marlon Brando’s unwillingness to cooperate. In the documentary, released on Showtime in 1991, Coppola is constantly shown doubting himself and the artistic merit of a monstrous film, initially scheduled for a 14 week shoot that lasted in excess of 200 days. Tied together with audio clips of Orson Welles’ 1938 radio play of the source material, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, much of the insight provided by the director was recorded surreptitiously, providing an unrestrained commentary on the project. The documentary now serves as an indispensable companion piece to one of the most epic and artful films ever made about war, brutality, madness and futility, and stands alone as an incredible piece of filmmaking in its own right.

Behind the Scenes: Gosha Rubchinskiy Spring-Summer '15

—01-03. Photographs by Lea Colombo.

Words

Gosha Rubchinskiy showed in Paris for the first time this season, and it was his most well-rounded offering to date. The youthful collection included the graphic sweats the brand has become known for, but it also bridged the gap with a variety leather and fur outerwear pieces, beautiful knits, and a healthy dose of colourful cut and sew. It's one of the few younger brands that I've been excited about of late, and these behind the scenes photos give a different perspective to the show imagery on Style.com.

Takahiro Miyashita The Soloist The Jean x.0276

—01. 100% Cotton.
—02. Shades of black.

Words

Takahiro Miyashita The Soloist makes a very interesting mix of garments – some wild and somewhat unwearable, while others are very simple and would be easy to mix into your wardrobe. These patchwork jeans fall somewhere in the middle; using vintage scraps, playing with tone and creating a unique shape, the result is a rather distinctive pair of cotton denim pants.

Christophe Lemaire Spring-Summer '15

01-02. Monochrome palette.

Words

Unsurprisingly, the Spring–Summer '15 shows have brought a lot of colour and pattern to the runway, but Christophe Lemaire has avoided the least bit of either with his latest offering. Instead, the extremely restrained collection provides plenty of interesting detail through silhouette, fabrication, and the casual structure of its jackets; all of which make for a universally cohesive and wearable selection.

The Strike Gold Heavy Loopwheeled Sweatshirt

—01. Four-needle flatlock seams.

Words

The vat dyed indigo colouring of this heavyweight sweatshirt means that while it looks pretty incredible now, it will only get better with age as it loses some of that rich blue hue. The tighter weave of the loopwheeled fabric is durable and tough, but sacrifices no softness with a triple-brushed interior. In short, this classic Japanese-made crew neck, with deep cuffs and waistband, couldn’t look any better, especially when paired with well-worn denim.

Comme des Garçons Homme Patchwork Shirt

01

Images

—01. 100% Cotton.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

I searched everywhere for this after seeing it peak out from behind a jacket in an editorial a few months ago. It is one of those rare shirts that utilizes traditional patchwork without conjuring visions of Arnold Palmers and croquet games. I suppose that is due to the use of paisley as opposed to something like seersucker, but whatever the reason, it looks very good to me.
