Words

There aren't a lot of good mid-century modern online shops. I've been following Just in Modern's blogspot for awhile and when I heard he was launching a new site, I was both excited and scared. Justin's selection of Herman Miller pieces alone is worth a look, but there are some great items by Knoll along with a nice variety of lighting, clocks and objects. While you won't find the deal of the mid-century, you will find fair prices for excellent pieces.

Words

When it comes to a combination of protection, functionality and weight it's tough to beat Arc'teryx. This spring the focus shifted to packable, lightweight jackets, and the Isogon is a highlight of the collection. Both water and wind resistant, this hooded jacket easily packs up, comes in three interesting colors and lands at a relatively good price point.

Collage Culture: Examining The 21st Century's Identity Crisis

—01. Collage Culture.

Words

The Heavy Mental recently published an excellent interview with the ever interesting Aaron Rose, concerning his essay 'The Death of Subculture' from the book Collage Culture. The book was conceived as a critique and study on the 21st century's obsession with reworking, often without credit, works of art and design from the past, while Rose's essay itself acts as a call of arms for young and contemporary designers to adopt a philosophy of creative innovation. The book, designed by Brian Roettinger, also features an essay entitled 'Living in the Mess' by Mandy Khan, which explores the notion that the abundance of reference that surrounds us might actually have a negative effect on the way we feel, and the ways in which we create.

Visvim Albacore Kofu Shirt

—01. BD shirt.

Words

Visvim's use of elbow patch details on their shirting has become one of their trademarks in the last few seasons. While I tend to go for the most simple and plain shirts when it comes to an oxford BD, their choice of patterns and tones combined with the Egyptian oxford cotton makes me think about bending my own rules.

Corona Summer Releases

—01. Cross Town Jacket.
—02. Explorer Vest.

Words

The new Summer 2012 collection from Corona offers a small but perfectly formed selection that pretty much covers all the Spring bases. These are easy to wear pieces in lightweight fabrics, with a good amount of attention paid to both colour and print. Light layering at it's very best.

These are just the tip of the iceberg though. The new edition features a massive 365 items, continues where the first one left off and comes highly recommended.

Words

There appears to be a near never ending selection of literary journals on the shelves of the book stores I visit, which means a never ending temptation to put yet another dent in my wallet. The second issue of the Milan Review is no exception. Featuring 224 color pages inside a dark blue cover, the book is divided into twelve chapters, each named after a sign of the zodiac, and each containing a short story and portfolio by a different artist. The likes of Iphgenia Baal, Clancy Martin, Matthias “Wolfboy” Connor, Chiara Barzini, Shane Jones, Massimiliano Bomba, Carola Bonfili, and Toony Navok are all featured inside this excellent publication.
