Maruhiro Flagship Store

01. Concrete-filled ceramic floor.

Words

Maruhiro, producer of the outstanding Hasami ceramics line, recently commissioned designer Yusuke Seki to overhaul their flagship store in Japan's Nagasaki prefecture. The result owes a significant debt to the concept of monohara, the kiln-side pits used for the disposal of imperfect and broken pieces pulled from the fire. Rather than adhering to this traditional practice, 25,000 flawed items were assembled from numerous factories in the area, filled with concrete, and layered to form a jaw-dropping elevated floor. This inventive use of would-be waste creates a striking balance between the locale’s rich history and the company’s preeminent place in contemporary Japanese ceramics.

Visvim Nomad Jacket 2.5L

01. Gore-Tex.

Words

While I greatly appreciate the care and attention put into every Visvim collection, there is often one piece that jumps out more than all the others, seeming like it would slide right into a vacant space in my closet. This season that would have to the be the Nomad Jacket. The brand's staple parka looks particularly good in this vivid red colour, and the Gore-Tex shell, button-up storm flap, and drawstring hood with a fold-out brim would make it very useful in the coming months when sunshine turns to rain.

Red Wing Heritage Style No. 9197: 6-Inch Postman

01

Image

01. Black Chaparral leather.

Words

This newly designed style based on Red Wing's ever-popular Postman Oxford has just been released at a handful of retailers. Favoured by mail carriers and policemen for its comfort and durability, the original 101 model debuted in 1954 and went on to become one of the best selling shoes in the brand's history. The 9197 takes this reference and applies it to a 6-inch boot. The cushion crepe wedge sole and goodyear welt construction are retained, but the added ankle coverage makes for a unique take on a time-tested Red Wing classic.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II

01

Image

01. Also available in blue.

Words

It's been a long time coming, but Converse have finally updated one of the most iconic shoes ever made. In production since 1917, the Chuck Taylor has become a part of most people's lives in one way or another. This summer the US sneaker brand have appointed the model with a Lunarlon sockliner, micro-suede interior, premium canvas construction and a padded non-slip tongue. The aesthetic of the shoe remains relatively unchanged, with the subtle injections of innovation somewhat hidden within. While I haven't tried a pair on yet, it seems as though the upgrade has been a successful one.
