Nari Ward: Canned Smiles

01

Image

—01. Edition of 250.

Words

It's not rare for me to encounter homewares or art in people's houses that I find aesthetically pleasing or even beautiful. Unfortunately though, it is rare for me to come across decorative pieces that are downright confrontational. I'm not going to speak on the message of this piece by famed artist Nari Ward. I just think it's important for us all to display a few items that increase intellectual discourse as opposed to an array of bubblegum to fit a colour scheme – especially on all too relevant topics such as this.

SoundCloud Spotlight: Eric Dingus

01. Footage [Mixtape].
02. Kairo.

Words

Eric Dingus has become one of my favourite new producers in the last six months. Hailing from Austin, Texas, he's been working regularly with up-and-coming rappers, Jimmy Johnson and Dowrong. His mix for OVO's HAW weekend and a selection of instrumentals can be found on his SoundCloud page, along with his most recent work with Jimmy and a new release: Footage [Mixtape]. He's also produced two other compilations, 512 and Subliminal Innocence, which aren't available on his SoundCloud but are worth tracking down.

Video

—01. Film by Errol Rainey and Jasset Harlech.

Words

O.Ballou released this short film a couple of months ago to promote their debut collection. The grainy black and white imagery, rough editing and great choice of music give it a raw, Italian feel, highlighting the southern area of Napoli alongside a selection of the brand's first pieces.

Nassiance have become a regular on our blog and in Japanese publications but, surprisingly, the brand has yet to make it into any western retailers. The collection is a little bit more colourful this fall, with a mix of interesting outerwear pieces, simple shirting and unique accessories.

01. Signed.
02. Tubes and tea bowl.

Words

These small stoneware pieces by Josh Herman feature a volcanic texture, muted tones, and come in a variety of sizes. The glazed ceramic tubes make for useful items around the house or office, but look just as good on their own.
