C.P. Company Nycra Arm Lens MA-1

01. Nycra fabric blend construction.

Words

C.P. Company’s contemporary take on the classic MA-1 style is one of the most attractive revisions of this jacket I’ve seen. The slim cut and flap pockets really make the silhouette work, while the lens used as a watch viewer on the sleeve pocket is an interesting application of one of the brand's most iconic recurring details.

The Letters FW14 Lookbook

01

Images

01. Fall Blues.
02. Winter Greys.

Words

The Letters has positioned itself nicely within the new crop of Japanese fashion houses, consistently crafting collections that are both unique and wearable, never veering too far into either Akira or train conductor territory. While all their showings have yielded individual pieces I wouldn't mind owning, the Fall-Winter '14 collection is the first to really grab my attention. The mix of traditional suiting elements with Vans shoes and other more casual attire is nothing new, but their execution of the aesthetic appears both authentic and interesting.

01. Black stamped coarse linen cover

Words

Phil Elverum is the mastermind behind visionary works of music such as The Glow Pt. 2 and more recently the darker, Wind’s Poem. The common thread between Elverum’s music and the photographs featured in his book, Dust, are the recurring themes of shadows, mystery, and nature. Everything he releases through his P.W. Elverum & Sun imprint is lavishly packaged and this 132-page hardcover publication, containing a secondary booklet of 48 more images, is sure to be no different.

Go With The Flow – A Group Show at The Hole

Info

312 Bowery
New York, NY 10012
July 10 – August 23, 2014

Words

I have a complicated relationship with art involving spray cans. Like most Americans, it was a major part of my youth, but one gimmicky street artist after another has practically spoiled the technique for me completely. That's why it was such a pleasure making my way through the 'Go With The Flow' group show, which is currently on display at The Hole gallery here in New York, and seeing the atomized paint most often associated with graffiti being used in all manner of beautiful and interesting ways. Even the one traditional 'fill-in' represented, from artist JIMJOE, was composed and executed in a captivating way. Whether you have a similar background to myself, or are just a fan of airbrushed T-shirts, the show is certainly something worth checking out.
