01. Gore-Tex Jacket.
02. Tech Fleece 1MM Crew.

Words

Deep into the winter season, Nike Sportswear White Label have released a series of technically functional items that are just as easy to wear casually. Tried and tested Gore-Tex is used alongside their Tech Fleece fabric to create a hard and soft contrast that works well together, while the pieces themselves are an evolution of Nike's streamlined shape and operational detailing.

Marking his first return to Paris since the final Number (Nine) presentation in 2009, Takahiro Miyashita previewed The Soloist offering for Autumn-Winter '15 over the weekend. In a reference to the colours favoured by John Lennon during the Double Fantasy period, the collection, entitled INTRO., features a strict black and white palette. Seen here as part of select looks, it also includes a series of intricate masks by Shin Murayama, constructed primarily from cowboy boots.

SoundCloud Spotlight: Pender Street Steppers

01. P.S.S. artwork.
02. Life in the Zone.

Words

Signed to West Coast record label Mood Hut, Pender Street Steppers have been gaining momentum with their mellow, hazy house sound. Liam Butler and Jack J played three dates in Australia earlier this month, followed by a show in San Francisco, and will be performing in the UK and Europe between March and July. The duo's debut, Life in the Zone – issued as a mixed cassette in 2013 – is probably my favourite P.S.S. release, but individual tracks from the album put out on vinyl by Mood Hut and Washington DC’s PPU are a good place to start.

Ettore Sottsass Metaphors

—01. Published by Skira, 2013.

Words

"This book is at once an homage to Ettore Sottsass' artistic experiences, and an interesting reinterpretation of them, through evocative photographs taken by Sottsass himself. The photographs and graphic materials, all from the period between 1968 and 1976 and never previously published, have been assembled by the author and arranged in a dramatic dialogue with his past and his memory."
