Darja Bajagic – C6ld c6mf6rt

Info

Room East
41 Orchard Street
New York, NY
September 7 – October 5, 2014

Words

Recent Yale graduate Darja Bajagic had a few pieces on display earlier this summer as part of Room East's 'Abnormcore' group show, and is now following that with a solo-show entitled 'C6ld c6mf6rt' in the same space. While the internet-referencing collages will no doubt disturb with their hints of childhood trauma, it is her large-scale she-devil patches that really steal the show. She also provided the artwork for Restraint's new record on Endangered Species, which you can hear below.

Nike Crosstown Running

—01. Fall-Winter '14.

Words

When it comes to performance wear, it's tough to beat Nike, especially in the running arena. Their products, from gloves and hats to tights and footwear, all lead the market in terms of design aesthetic, comfort and functionality. This fall we got to select a few items from the latest offering and test them in Vancouver on a brisk early morning.

orSlow BD Shirts

—01. One Wash Denim.
—02. Navy Wool Blend.

Words

orSlow’s BD shirts are some of my favourites, not just for their exceptional exclusive fabrics but also for their impeccable fit. Not overly slim and slightly longer than most, they have a classic shape that works very well with both narrower and wider pants in equal measure. The denim version has been my choice for quite a while now, but seeing this durable, warm wool-blend version has me contemplating adding another strong fall-winter option to my wardrobe.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Plaid Wool Scarf

—01. 100% wool.
—02. Made in Scotland.

Words

As we move into fall, the consideration of wool and warming accessories will soon become a reality again. In turn, the general tone of the clothing we wear often becomes more muted, so adding a subtle red plaid via a winter scarf is not a bad idea.

Rodney Graham: Props and Other Paintings

Info

Charles H. Scott Gallery
1399 Johnston Street
Vancouver, BC
September 17 – November 16, 2014

Words

As one of Vancouver's most respected artists, Rodney Graham's series of shows in collaboration with the Rennie Gallery this year have been a real treat. The third and final instalment, Props and Other Paintings, is comprised of works that featured in light box pieces such as The Gifted Amateur, Pipe Cleaner Artist, My Late Early Styles and Lobbing Potatoes at a Gong. Graham's narratives have a wonderful sense of humour, highlighting his personal and cultural insights, and while the art featured in them was originally conceived only as a piece in a bigger puzzle, their development and evolution warrants a deeper look based purely on artistic value.

Junya Watanabe Man Panel Trousers

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 100% Wool.

Words

Junya Watanabe has a way of making everything else I'm looking at just that little bit less appealing. I thought I needed a pair of navy trousers for winter, but all the others I've seen pale in comparison to this option, made up of three pairs. Whereas most designers would have struggled to avoid making this treatment look tacky, as usual Junya hits the nail right on the head.
