Padmore & Barnes Original P204 and P404

01. Hand-stitched moccasin toe.
02. Plantation crepe sole.

Words

Between 1964 and 1987 Padmore & Barnes was owned by Clarks, and when the Wallabee was introduced in 1967 it was made at their Kilkenny factory. For the next 20 years the Irish shoe manufacturer produced what is often considered the finest version of this style. The Wallabee is still part of the Clarks offering today, but like so many iconic designs it has drifted from its original form over the years. During this time Padmore & Barnes have quietly continued to make their own option, and those wanting the best possible rendition of this classic silhouette should look no further than the P204 and P404 models.

01. Tech Fleece Funnel Pullover.
02. ACG 2-in-1.

Words

Nike's relaunch of the ACG collection has been much anticipated, but I was a little skeptical when I first heard the news. It would have been easy to simply reproduce old styles and colourways in updated fabrics. However, by enlisting Errolson Hugh they've been able to push the collection forwards. The latest rendition of ACG appears to be an exciting step in the right direction, finding a balance between style and functionality which was always at the brand's core. The footwear is well done, but it's the outerwear and tops that are the most enticing.

—01. Certified by the Max Bill Foundation.

Words

Max Bill’s poster designs may not receive as much attention as other Bauhaus schooled designers, but it is the basic tenets of ‘continuity’, ‘development’ and ‘invention’, not to mention the tasteful use of a variety of colours, that make his Variation series so successful as works of art that can be hung in any home. Released with permission from the Max Bill Foundation in 2007, these are a great, affordable option for adding some brightness to your wall.

I Am a Sender. I Transmit!

01. Vitex agnus castus, 1973.
02. Silver Broom and Broom without Bristles, 1972.

Words

Some of the Fluxus affiliated artist Joseph Beuys' best known and most enigmatic work comes in the form of his multiples, a calling card for this avant-garde 1960s art movement descended from Dada and Marcel Duchamp’s readymade sculptures. A retrospective of these items opened earlier this year and runs until January 11th, 2015 at Munich’s Pinathotek der Moderne. For anyone far removed from this locale, the simply designed website is a veritable online museum, exhibiting all the multiples chronologically with exhaustive information about the pieces and the artist himself.

—01. Japanese exclusive.

Words

It's been a couple of seasons since Converse Addict released a shoe that made the overseas purchase worthwhile. The latest edition of the low top Chuck Taylor comes in a black suede, which feels closer to a nubuck in person. The thick Vibram sole provides superior cushion and comfort, and you have the option between black or white laces.

Kodo Kiyooka Ceramics

—01. Aohai Flat Bowl.

Words

Kodo Kiyooka is well-known for his straw ash glazed, heat-resistant vessels but some of his other pieces, like a lot of Japanese ceramics, exist in a realm slightly closer to fine art. Intended for everyday use, their handmade, one-of-a-kind nature make them as decorative as they are functional.
