F.C. Real Bristol Spring-Summer '15

Words

I'm not sure if it's the significance of sportswear in current fashion trends or the collection itself, but the latest FCRB offering feels more wearable than it has in previous seasons. The product section of the brand's website is filled with appealing options well worth tracking down from their ever-expanding list of stockists.

Words

I certainly owe some thanks to our resident house music enthusiast, Nico, for introducing me to a handful of producers I may not have otherwise come across. One of them is Madteo, who recently produced an irie dancehall mix for Trushmix. Featuring a great selection of mid '80s and early '90s tracks, it's just as good for a mellow dance party as it is for cleaning your apartment on a Friday night.

01. Bartworks, 2015.
02. Pep, 2015.

Words

Swiss art book publisher, and subject of a feature in Issue 10 of our magazine, Nieves, has released six new photocopied zines. The two that stand out to me are Bartworks, by frequent Yaeca illustrator Ken Kagami, and Pep, by Brooklyn-based artist James Ulmer. The other four offered are sure to have something appealing about them for those that love similar primitive, outsider illustration and at $8 are easily purchased from change found amongst your couch cushions.

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson

—01. Published by Steidl, 2015.

Words

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson has long been considered one of those rare, out-of-print photo books that carries a high price tag for original copies. That doesn’t have to be the case any longer. The German publisher, Steidl, has reissued a facsimile version of the 1952 book and hopefully its availability will help to continue eliciting Cartier-Bresson's hegemony and influence over photographers hoping to catch seemingly happenstance moments of beauty or quite possibly introduce his work to a whole new generation.

Simple, effective; well-cast and styled in an interesting yet wearable way. What more could you ask for, from an online editorial? Don't Hold Me Close is the latest visual offering from Nepenthes, featuring items from the Engineered Garments, FWK and Workaday Spring-Summer '15 collections. Worth a click. Worth a look. I quite like those runners too.

La Fine del Mondo

Words

I wasn't supposed to be buying books. I wasn't even supposed to be shopping. But when something catches your eye, in a place that you love and trust, and that thing is only $10, there's really only ever going to be one outcome. Le Fine del Mondo – published by Rainoff books – has been produced by Marco Fusinato, Felicity D. Scott and Mark Wasiuta on the occasion of their contribution to the 14th International Architecture Exhibition at la Biennale di Venezia. The installation they put together, under the same name, includes not only this print document but also a series of "sensor-triggered audio-visual components depicting related records from Turin's Piper Club of 1966 and three Milanese centri sociali: Leoncavallo, Cox18, and Virus." Both book and installation aim to question the use of nightclubs and other social spaces as "sites of political meditation." Which sounds intense, and to be honest is not something I know a lot about. Which is as good a reason as any to purchase a book. They're supposed to be tools for learning and inspiration, after all.
