The selection of premium sneakers available these days is quite extensive. There's a lot to choose from, but Swedish brand Spalwart stands out because their products possess an authentic, vintage look and a rugged beauty all of their own. The Marathon Trail, inspired by a '70s fell running shoe, is a really attractive model that looks great in this dark colourway.

Weekend Viewing: A Zed & Two Noughts

01

Image

—01. A film directed by Peter Greenaway.

Words

Their are plenty of adept filmmakers in the world, but there are very few genius filmmakers. Peter Greenaway, the director of A Zed & Two Noughts, almost certainly belongs to the latter group. This film came out in 1985, only his third film after the mind-boggling conceptual masterpiece The Falls and the incredibly bizzare The Draughtsman's Contract. A Zed & Two Noughts was a total departure from his previous work though, largely due to him teaming up with cinematographer Sacha Vierney, who helped him develop the crisp, meticulous, almost stagey look that would come to be his visual signature. The power of this film's quirky beauty is only matched by its morbid themes, involving the all too relatable constructs of decay, disaster, and death. Words really can't describe a picture this singular, so please just go and see it, but do prepare to have it burned into your mind's eye for the rest of your life.

Words

The Delta Vase, designed in 1981 and having won numerous awards, is an interesting vessel comprised of three pieces of glass adhered to one another with silicone. It is a break from the vase as blown glass and is a beautiful, primitive form with a home in MoMA's permanent collection.

Words

My journey to collect every single type of traditional jacket in a collarless version gets one step closer to completion with this beautiful piece from Victim & Co. The polyester fabric is offered in both a muddy blue and a faded black, with the former giving the jacket a slight sanitation worker vibe. Thus completing my personal checklist of all the things that make a perfect garment.
