Weekend Viewing: Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther

01

Video

—01. Filmed and edited by William Klein.

Words

This isn't the first time I've brought up William Klein in the updates section, and it might not be the last. His career is a long and varied one, marked by one astounding success after another. While he is certainly best known as a photographer, he made a series of incredible films in the '60s and '70s, most notably Mr. Freedom and The Model Couple. One is a full-length satirical pseudo-superhero thriller, that will no doubt turn you totally off CGI for at least the next 24 hours, and the other is a reality TV predicting offbeat drama, that no doubt had a large effect on many of the 'quirkier' directors operating today. While both are must-watch films in my opinion, today I'd like to bring your attention to the 1970 film he shot and edited about Eldridge Cleaver, an infamous member of the Black Panther Party. Cleaver was a highly intelligent and deeply angry individual, one who never provides a dull moment when he is on camera. This is an important film and an even more important piece of America's history.

SASQUATCHfabrix. Renunciation of War T-Shirt

01. Made in Japan.
02. Available in Black, White and Grey.

Words

If there are any two things I find myself universally drawn to, it's Japanese lettering and Japanese-made Champion product. If there is anything that I find universally repellant, it's war. So if you feel the same as me on these fronts, this T-shirt will probably interest you as well.

Foxford Throw

—01. 75% mohair, 25% wool.

Words

This blanket from the Irish woollen mill, Foxford, established in County Mayo in 1892, is one of several attractive options that the London-based shop Couverture & The Garbstore stocks in their homewares section. The colour combination is pretty unique, offering something a little more interesting than a commonplace tartan pattern. The yarn is also sure to be warm and substantial, comprised of an appealing mohair/wool blend.

A handful of new Air Max '95 colourways have already been released this year, and I imagine we might see a few more as the classic style has something of a resurgence. If you're looking for a dark sneaker, this navy and black edition offers an easy way to keep things tonal till spring.

With an estimated burning time of 46 hours, they are made from a gel which is meant to mimic the appearance of water, creating a unique look compared to wax.

01. Ethan Hawke.
02. Jack O'Connell.

Words

Prada's latest men's campaign features Ansel Elgort, Ethan Hawke, Jack O'Connell and Miles Teller, captured alone in moments of contemplation by photographer Craig McDean. The somewhat dark and moody atmosphere may seem unexpected given the brightness and warmth associated with the season ahead, but it works perfectly with collection's overall aesthetic.
