Depression Catalogue

Info

94 pages, 18 foldouts
9.5 x 12 inches
Designed by Eric Wrenn
Published by Ramiken Crucible

Words

Last year I saw some photos from an amazing group show entitled Depression, put on at the François Ghebaly Gallery in LA. At the time I didn't know that the exhibition was organised by Ramiken Crucible, so when I saw this catalog for sale on the Lower East Side gallery's website, I was pleasantly surprised. Alongside work from an impressive list of artists including Lucas Blalock and Andra Ursuta, the catalog's accompanying text offers insight into a serious issue that many people find themselves affected by.

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Diagonal Print Shirt

01

Images

01. 100% polyester.
02. Asymmetric cut.

Words

It's that wonderful time of year when Fall-Winter items from the various Comme des Garçons collections start rolling into shops, and I'm as impressed as ever. Although there are a lot of standouts, this wonky creation is one of the best. It is a truly bizarre construction but, in my opinion, not too costume-like to be unwearable, existing in that rare sweet spot Rei Kawakubo so frequently inhabits.

Online Feature: Takahiro Kinoshita

Words

The influential Japanese magazine, Popeye, celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2016. There aren’t many fashion titles that make it to this landmark, and fewer still that remain relevant to contemporary culture. Over the last decade this wasn’t always the case, but with the addition of current Editor-in-Chief, Takahiro Kinoshita, in 2012, Popeye received a refocus, a redesign and, as a result, a significant renewal. Having previously worked as an editor for Brutus, he brought a wealth of knowledge and a strong vision for the publication’s rebirth when taking over the reins. This eventually lead to Popeye’s reemergence as one of the preeminent men’s fashion monthlies from Japan. We had the opportunity to ask Kinoshita about his relationship with the magazine, as well as delving into what interests him most about the current fashion landscape.

The Crack-Up at Room East

Info

Room East
41 Orchard Street
New York, NY 10002
June 28 – August 15, 2105

Words

One of my favourite galleries in the Lower East Side, Room East, is hosting a group show called The Crack-Up, alongside a solo exhibition downstairs full of amazing and provocative illustrations by the artist Ebecho Muslimova. The former is filled with some fantastic pieces, but Robin Cameron and Dario Guccio steal the show with their respective ceramic and leather creations. The theme of the exhibition revolves around an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote, something you can read more about in an article on Mousse magazine's website linked below. With only a few days left, if you're able to find the time, I highly recommend a visit to the gallery before the show closes.

Words

Abel Sloane, who runs the well-edited, UK-based modernist furniture shop, 1934, has recently extended his operation to include a sister store focussed on smaller, easily shippable items. Dubbed 1934 Smalls, the bulk of his current stock is made up of glassware, printed matter and ceramics, all of which dovetail perfectly with the larger pieces he sells.

The Stussy Rootz collection offers a look into the brand’s imaginative past, taking inspiration from a variety of iconic designs. The latest range comprises four T-shirts and a hooded sweatshirt made with enzyme-washed cottons, over-dyed versions of the Beach Pant and Boxer Short, an Oxford S/S Shirt and two 6-panel caps. The updated styles feature a mix of printed graphics and embroidered logos, while the muted tones give this season's selection a softer look and feel.

Gosha Rubchinskiy Fall-Winter '15 at Working Title

01. Wool Checkered Jacket.
02. Fake Suede Jacket.

Words

Gosha Rubchinskiy's new collection is arguably one of the most anticipated of the Fall-Winter '15 season. The Russian designer's graphic T-shirts are already selling out and the latest collaboration with Vans has been very well-receieved, but the outerwear and accessories are some of his best to date and should not be overlooked.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Poplin Zip Shirt Jacket

01

Image

01. Made in France.

Words

While Comme des Garçons is often associated with idiosyncrasy, rule-breaking and the avant-garde, the brand is also extremely good when it comes to simplicity. This piece from their SHIRT line is a prime example, striking a perfect balance between basic wearability and modernity. The classic one-pocket styling juxtaposed with a YKK-zipped front suggests forward-thinking design through a straightforward utilization of materials.
