Adidas Stan Smith by Raf Simons

—01. Vulcanised sole.

Words

These shoes might be priced rather highly, especially considering their subtle design in comparison to the originals, but there is an undeniable appeal. Whether it's an interest in Raf Simons – the man or the label – or maybe the desire for something just that little bit different, these are probably the simplest Consortium collaboration to date, as well as the best.

Maharam are best known for their incredible offering of textiles and beautifully conceived patterns featuring the likes of Alexander Girard, Charles and Ray Eames, and Hella Jongerius. Their range of bags and pillows is also nice, but these clothbound notebooks, designed by A4 Studio, are especially good – available in six colours across two packs of three.

Fullcount Lightweight Katsuragi Jeans

—01. Lightweight Katsuragi twill.

Words

As soon as the dog days of summer roll around, I always find myself thinking about lightweight, pale jeans for that casual hot weather look. Perfect with Aloha shirts or similar summer options, this pair features a slim fit, which is the only way to wear to ivory coloured jeans, in my opinion.

Our Legacy recently released the imagery for their Fall-Winter '14 campaign, entitled 'Light'. The mix of macro shots, motion blur, focused details and a mostly somber palette create an enriching and beautiful vision for the Swedish brand's latest offering.

From July 17th until October 19th, the Whitney Museum of American Art will be exhibiting Collecting Calder, a retrospective of the work of Alexander Calder. The New York City institution boasts the largest collection of Calder’s work in the world and will be exhibiting his drawings and sculptures, giving equal representation to the two main aspects of his output. Calder’s Circus – miniature circus-themed dioramas rendered from wire, string, cork, wood, paper, metal and cloth – will be shown alongside the whimsical mobiles he is known for, as well as static sculptures he called ’stabiles’. This exhibit is a must for anyone one who is interested in the American artist and wants to see a large selection of his work collected in one venue.

Hine Desk Objects

Image

—01. The first collection.

Words

Designer Andrew Hine has produced an understated selection of desk accessories, handsome enough to be left out on display but also highly functional. Reminiscent of the simplicity of Japanese and Scandinavian design, these objects have been produced in the UK by craftsmen utilizing the finest materials, such as American black walnut, beech wood and boar bristles. Founded in 2013, the emerging company has succeeded in producing a modest collection of classic items that can be used every day and will last long enough to be passed down from generation to generation.
