Cherchbi Laptop Sleeve

01

Images

—01. Made in UK.
—02. Available in two colours.

Words

British brand Cherchbi started out making bags from the discarded wool of Herdwick sheep, and while the selection of materials they use has grown since the company was established in 2007, the durable, waterproof fabric is still a prominent feature of their collections. An item that sees as much use as a laptop sleeve definitely benefits from the wool's natural qualities, and the simple design makes this option a unique but easy choice.

Words

While the weather might be improving for a lot of us and certain types of clothing have become less of a priority, there are always those pieces that transcend the seasons, unlikely to be worn for months but offering an investment for the future. This Japanese-made, alpaca-lined flying jacket by Stevenson Overall Co., a brand that originally existed in the 1920s and now produces some fantastic reinterpretations of prominent vintage pieces, is just such an item.

Max Bill Watches

01

Images

—01. Numbers.
—02. Lines.

Words

The pool of finely made automatic watches is very deep and choices are almost too endless. Canoe has three variations of the classic style designed by Max Bill in 1962 and produced in Germany. Their neighbours to the south, and Bill's home country, may get most of the acclaim when it comes to timepieces, but these clean designs are a great alternative that will always rival comparable Swiss-made watches.

—01. Inventory exclusives.

Words

To add to our selection of South2 West8 bags for SS14 we asked the brand to bring back one of their original styles especially for us. Replaced in recent seasons by the Zip Tool Tote, the Book Tote was always offered in Sunforger, but this is the first time it's also been made in Ballistic Nylon and 18oz Canvas. Limited numbers of all three options are now in stock at both of our shops, as well as online.

The Ny Rocking Chair has been in MoMA's permanent collection since 1970, and is one of the great mid-century minimalist designs. Made of canvas, aluminium and wood, it looks beautiful in its simplicity and is also highly functional, offering a comfortable, unique seating option that folds up to only five inches in width for easy storage.

Amy O'Neill – Red Headed Stranger

01

Image

—01. Published in an edition of 500.

Words

Amy O'Neill is one of the most talented and multi-faceted individuals working in contemporary art today. The bulk of her output is either highly conceptual sculpture or scrappy hand-drawn work, but this book is neither of those things. To put it simply, it is 28 half blank pages filled with pictures of red heads. The seemingly simple book manages to conjure a potent undercurrent of dread as you flip through, to the point where you feel each woman included came to some terrible and well-publicized demise. It's a feeling that's hard to explain, so just pick it up and see for yourself.

Words

Merz b. Schwanen cotton goods are second to none and this T-shirt, based on a 1960s military style, looks to be perfect. Made in Germany utilizing circular knitting machines from the 1920s-50s, the fit is sure to be flawless, while also paying homage to garment manufacture of days gone by.
