Fumihiko Okabe

—01 & 02. Looks from a recent story in Go Out.

Words

I discovered Fumihiko Okabe's work at the beginning of last year through an editorial he did for Go Out entitled Anti-Nostalgic. I liked the neatness of his styling, the brand mix he used and the underlying sense of humour with which he approached the story. A year and a lot of emails later, I'm really pleased to say that Issue 06 will feature an incredible editorial that he shot for us with photographer Arata Suzuki. I sincerely hope it's the first of many.

Top Deck by James Pearson-Howes & Will Robson-Scott

Words

"In popular myth, Margaret Thatcher reportedly said that any man still travelling by bus after the age of 30 could consider himself a failure. The quote is almost certainly apocryphal, but it stuck in the public consciousness because it sounded like the kind of thing that an arch-conservative would say; cars were the preserve of the rich and successful, whereas buses were how the poor, the failed and the antisocial travelled around the city.

If there’s any truth in that distinction, then it damns an awful lot of people in London. Every week day, over 6800 buses carry around 6 million people across 700 different routes. And while buses have their problems, they offer a unique view of the city."

This except from Justin Quirk's foreward sums up the inspiration behind a new publication by James Pearson-Howes and Will Robson-Scott. Photographed over a 2 year period from the top deck of various East London buses, and currently on show at renowned advertising agency Mother, the project offers a fresh perspective on the monotony of the daily commute.

Human Made Campus Sweat

—01. Human.
—02. Made.

Words


Plain is best, but every once in a while a sweatshirt like this catches my eye. It will usually feature a collegiate print and a small C above the cuff, but this is something a bit more special. The large applique letters - front and back - won't be to everyone's liking, nor is the price particularly realistic for the vast majority of us. That doesn't stop it from being a great sweatshirt though, and one I'd happily add to the stack of more subdued options in my wardrobe.

Words

The Norwegian born, LA based photographer Torbjørn Rødland's 'Eighteen Analogue Double Exposures' is currently on display at the Standard gallery in Oslo. The exhibition offers a unique and minimally hung view of Torbjørn's black and white photography, which has previously been seen in books by Steidl, Hassla, and Libraryman. If you don't happen to live anywhere close to Oslo, his work is also well worth checking out online, or in print, if that's the closest you can get.

Words

This is technically old news, seeing as how this particular issue of Brutus magazine came out in July of last year, but I discovered these scans today; courtesy of the ever-reliable Reference Library, and thought it worth a post. Thankfully both the internet and back issues exist, so there's still hope for those eager to track down a hard copy of issue 713: California's Best Businesses.

The Real McCoy's Deer Skin Vest

—01. Deer Skin with Buck suede shoulder.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words


When the temperature drops there's nothing like a French duck down vest to keep that core warm. Exotic insulation just feels better. McCoys are capable of sourcing some incredible material and I can only imagine how nice that deer skin leather breaks in. I can't justify buying this piece, but I can appreciate how incredible it is.
