—01. Child's rocker by Gloria Caranica.

Words

"MoMA’s ambitious survey of 20th century design for children is the first large-scale overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. The exhibition will bring together areas underrepresented in design history and often considered separately, including school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children’s hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books."

At MoMA until November 5th, 2012

Studio D'Artisan T-Shirts

Links

01. Mid Weight Navy.
02. Heavy Weight White.

Words

Summer may well be on its last legs, but the heat of August must still be suffered before the more forgiving and usually cooler September arrives. It's at about this time when I've worn in and worn out almost all of my summer T-shirts, and am quite frankly sick of wearing the same two or three things every day. These mid and heavy weight loopwheel T-shirts from Studio D'Artisan might be a little on the expensive side, but when they're 50% of your entire outfit, the price starts to look a little more reasonable.

North Face Purple Label Pertex Bags

01. Packing Cases.
02. Wrap Bag.

Words

While it seems obvious, having options is never a bad thing when it comes to storing and carrying things. While a few brands offer a similar set of different options, The North Face Purple Label has done it right by using the super lightweight, waterproof and durable Pertex. Their set of packing cases provides a nice range of sizes for any trip big or small, while the performance fabric adds functionality to that utility. The blue, red and white stripes are an especially nice version of the technical fabric which they've also used on a great adjustable wrap bag which is also worth a look.

A classic, easy to wear piece from the Fall-Winter '12 Levi's Vintage Clothing collection, these shirts have just arrived at Haven, along with a selection of other items from the brand.

It's almost impossible to sum up the ambition, significance, and scope of this publication in a single blog post. At a staggering 644 pages, its contents, art directed by Simon Foxton and Nick Griffiths, tell the 30 year story of one of the most important brands in modern sportswear. Over 300 meticulously captioned images offer a rare examination of Stone Island's famed archive, each page representing not only a moment in time, but also underlining the Italian brand's status as a perpetual innovator. The perfect accompaniment to the recent exhibition at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, this book is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in clothing history.
