Bermuda Trips Mashiko Pottery

—01. Black Glaze with White Drip Rim.

Words

Dean and Natsumi recently returned from a trip to Japan, filling their bags with new products for their Bermuda Trips website. There are some great Alumite bento and pocket snack boxes, some indigo bandanas and deadstock bottle openers, but my personal favorites are the handmade Mashiko pottery pieces. With several unique cups to chose from, this small sake cup is my pick of the bunch.

—01. Tier Zero release.

Words

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of Nike Free, as well as the shoes that influenced the groundbreaking concept, the 'Genealogy' pack was unveiled earlier this year. Taking that campaign a step further, the brand have now released a selection of the same styles with black uppers, including this Free OG model with a speckled grey sole – a detail that's always hard to resist.

Wim Neels Daily Military Pants

01. Cotton herringbone.
02. Washed fabric.

Words

I’ve been after a pair of slightly cropped, boxier fitting military pants for a while, and these ones by Wim Neels Daily seem like a very good option. There’s something to be said for the useful pocket configuration, but I think the richly textured herringbone fabric in this lighter tan colour is the real standout.

Unseen 50 Years: Paintings by Ben Morea, 1964-65

Info

Boo-Hooray
265 Canal Street, 6th Floor
New York, NY 10013
June 19 - August 1, 2014

Before launching the influential 1960s anarchist art publications Black Mask and UAW/MF, Ben Morea was an abstract painter in New York City. His work was all believed to be lost, but miraculously five large canvases were discovered under a bed in Hell’s Kitchen. This recently opened exhibition at Boo-Hooray, curated by Johan Kugelberg, marks the first ever showing of these bold 'new' works.

Needles 11oz. Denim Coverall

—01. Charcoal denim.

Words

There are plenty of sales on at the moment, but not so many great items left in good sizes. This Needles jacket, however, is one exception. Made in Japan from an 11oz. charcoal denim, it's a great year-round piece at a very appealing price.

Weekend Viewing: Hearts of Darkness – A Filmmaker's Apocalypse

01

—01. Francis Ford Coppola.

Words

Aptly titled, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse is culled from documentary footage shot on the set of Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola’s wife, Eleanor. It shows the unraveling of the director due largely in part to his having to finance the film out of his own pocket, but also under the constraints of a civil war, a typhoon, Martin Sheen’s mid-shoot heart attack, endless studio gossip and Marlon Brando’s unwillingness to cooperate. In the documentary, released on Showtime in 1991, Coppola is constantly shown doubting himself and the artistic merit of a monstrous film, initially scheduled for a 14 week shoot that lasted in excess of 200 days. Tied together with audio clips of Orson Welles’ 1938 radio play of the source material, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, much of the insight provided by the director was recorded surreptitiously, providing an unrestrained commentary on the project. The documentary now serves as an indispensable companion piece to one of the most epic and artful films ever made about war, brutality, madness and futility, and stands alone as an incredible piece of filmmaking in its own right.
