Weekend Listening: Treader Records

01

01. A selection of releases.

Words

Treader is a small but perfectly formed record label, run by Ashley Wales and John Coxon (of Spring Heel Jack fame). The consistent and beautiful artwork should be enough to warrant your attention, and at least have you considering a reasonably priced purchase or two. However, if you feel you need further convincing, I'd recommend listening to J Spaceman's two releases on the label: his first solo record under his own name Guitar Loops, and a collaboration with Matthew Shipp, entitled SpaceShipp. Both were the reason I discovered Treader in the first place, and I'm certainly grateful that I did.

The Real McCoy's Chino Cloth Cowboy Shirt

01. Pearl snap buttons.

Words

Though they come and go in my rotation, I’ll always have a place for a snap front western shirt in my closet. Surprisingly I don’t own a short-sleeved version, but this option by The Real McCoy’s is likely to be one of the best around. The brand's designs are tough to beat and this is no exception, offering a confluence of appealing details such as simple styling, durable materials and an easy to wear colour, most suitably worn with jeans or dark pants.

Available from Blue in Green

Arcana: Books on the Arts

Info

8675 Washington Boulevard
Culver City, CA 90232
+1 310 458 1499

Words

Arcana: Books on the Arts is a great store located on Washington Boulevard in Culver City, California. Since 1984 they have offered a wide range of new, rare and out of print books on 20th and 21st century photography, art, architecture, cinema, design, and fashion. I have never left the store empty-handed. During one visit I was chatting with an employee about a long out of print magazine that I was looking for. He told me to hold on while he ran across the street to their storage facility (they have over 100,000 items on hand) and returned with a pristine copy that I quickly added to my purchase pile. They recently launched a beautiful new website designed by Art Design Office. The site has a modern feel, which compliments the psychical location well. Now you can shop 24 hours a day without having to be in the Los Angeles area.

Raf Simons Spring-Summer '16

Words

Set inside a massive, mostly empty warehouse, Raf Simons debuted his Spring-Summer '16 collection in Paris this week. The heavy music provided plenty of energy, while the contrasting silhouettes and proportions gave life to a fairly muted colour palette. Wide trousers, tiny knits, slim pants and oversized coats, often embellished with grommets, retained most of the attention as a couple of hooded models took an unplanned detour along the way.

Cow Books Book Rack

01. W:43cm x H:16cm x D:18.5cm.

Words

As one acquires more and more publications, the idea of a series of portable shelves for ease of rearranging, adding to, and relocating seems like a really attractive idea. This option from Cow Books has had some serious thought put into it. Inspired by the shelving used at Serendipity in Berkeley – the influential but now closed bookstore founded by Peter B. Howard in the early '60s – it features a beautiful handmade character and gives your favourite titles the place of distinction they deserve.

Missoni Spring-Summer '16

—01. Malibu Sandals.

Words

On Sunday afternoon in Milan, Missoni's latest men's collection took us to India, with plenty of references to The Darjeeling Limited. The tones and textures played perfectly together, combining to present a fine vision of casual luxury. Collaborations with Converse, Malibu Sandals and Globe-Trotter added an extra level of interest, but it was the small details that really stood out. Everything was very intricate without feeling too delicate to actually wear, and in the end that's just what I like from my clothes.
