Words

Where They Create by Paul Barbera was born when the established interiors photographer began documenting the people and places he visited for assignments. The contents of his blog, some of which can now be found in a book of the same name, provides a beautiful visual insight into a variety of artist studios, commercial design offices and, more recently, people's homes.

Words

Union just received a small shipment from Richardson Mag. Not usually known for their cut and sewn garments, this simple coaches jacket is the standout. It's made from cotton canvas, featuring black snap buttons, and presents the style in a classic way with white graphics on the chest and back.

Weekend Listening: Nina Simone – Here Comes the Sun

—01. 247 Main Street.

Words

Nina Simone's 1971 release, Here Comes the Sun, features some of my favourite album artwork, and of course the music isn't bad either. Simone covers songs by George Harrison and Bob Dylan, among others, on this eight track record and her soulful interpretations of these songs are perfect for a rainy day, or a weekend afternoon at home.

Weekend Viewing: Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton

—01. DVD and CD set.

Words

This spring Stones Throw Records released a feature-length film documenting the birth and evolution of the label, and the people that made it possible. Peanut Butter Wolf can be credited with Stone Throw's direction and success – financially and artistically – so it's no surprise to find him narrating. The film provides intimate insight into an otherwise quiet group of musicians, from the early days and the death of Charizma to a peek at the prolific work of Madlib and the latest wave of artists to be signed. It's an inspiring and emotional look inside one of the most impressive independent record labels of our time.

—01. Translucent outsole.

Words

After missing out on the first release of Nike's Lunar Force 1, I've frequently been checking eBay for a pair in my size, but to no avail. Fortunately the latest version of the shoe might be even better. While I'm not 100% sold on the translucent sole, I much prefer the classic full leather upper.

01. Vase.
02. Bowl.

Words

After studying under well-known potter Keisuke Iwata, Takeshi Omura moved back to his hometown of Fukuoka, set up a kiln and began developing his own style. His pieces are recognizable by their almost metallic feeling, and seem to find the right balance between refined and rustic.
