The Agony and the Ecstasy of Kanye West

Words

As part of T Magazine's Culture Issue, Jon Carmanica had the opportunity to speak with Kanye West about the past few months and his direction for the future. For me personally, as a longstanding fan, the article shed an interesting light on his current attitude towards life and work. We all reach certain points which feel more significant than others, and it seems that now could be one of those times for Kanye. If the apparent combined culmination of education and maturity align, then one would only assume his output is likely to rise to exciting new heights.

Kapital Fuji Smile Printed Jersey Tee

01

—01. Garment washed.

Words

After years of wearing T-shirts with graphics, I got into the habit of avoiding shirts that made any sort of statement with an image at all. That time has passed and while I’m still leery about making grand exclamations with my T-shirt choices, I am definitely open to the idea of some small proclamation. This option from Kapital makes that a pretty easy transition, considering I, like many others, have always found the image of Mount Fiji to be a powerful one, and who can resist the beaming visage of the classic smiley face?

Fine art photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has the preternatural ability to orchestrate images of incredible composition and arresting beauty from just about anything, whether it be the mechanical, mundane, or everyday.

Martino Gamper Salt and Pepper Spitz

01

Image

—01. Walnut and ash versions.

Words

Martino Gamper obviously takes pride in reworking everyday items and imbuing them with a sense of humour, amounting to designs that while useful in your daily life, also give the refreshing feeling of breaking convention. Salt and pepper grinders certainly fit squarely into the everyday and ubiquitous categories, and are notably absent from a lot of designer’s offerings. Gamper, however, has produced versions in walnut and ash, making colour coordinating your salt and pepper receptacles very easy.

Niuhans Light Indigo Denim Jacket

01

Image

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

The search for the perfect denim jacket is a fickle one and not entirely realistic with so many varieties available. There are those that choose vintage or the traditional recreation route, favouring chore coats or early Levi’s models, but this option from the Japanese brand, Niuhans, echoes 20th century designs, while retaining a contemporary feel with its light wash and basic simplicity.

Rebels of the Neon God

—01. Limited one week engagement.

Words

The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be giving Tsai Ming-liang's legendary debut film Rebels of the Neon God its first ever theatrical release in the West next week, and I implore New Yorkers not to miss it. Despite Ming-liang being one of the most celebrated directors in film's history, his work is woefully hard to view in the US. Hopefully this release will begin to change that, as this film about disillusioned Taipei youth is far from his only masterpiece.
