—01. Inspired by function and utility.
—02. Sunlight and stripes.

Words

Shot on location at the Japan Lutheran College by Kiyotaka Hatanaka, the MHL Spring-Summer '12 look book has been doing the rounds on various blogs and websites over the last few days. And understandably so: the clothes, styling, light and location all work together to portray a look and mood that perfectly encapsulates the MHL line.

Neil Bedford

—01. Inventory Issue 06: Neighborhood SS12 editorial.

Words

Not only is Neil Bedford an extremely talented photographer, he's also a pleasure to work with. We're lucky enough to have counted him among our contributors since Issue 02, and I'm proud of the work we've done together. Often challenging, and always incredibly well executed, I feel strongly that his editorials, usually produced with Stephen Mann, are an essential part of our magazine. These images go some way to illustrating that point, but for an insight into his work beyond Inventory, you really should take the time to explore his new website.

01. Sweater and skirt by Beams Boy.
02. Spring colors.

Words

Beams always do a wonderful job with their seasonal catalogs. A nice mix of product shots and styled looks showcase the mix of in-house products and select brands very well. This spring however, the women's version of Beams Plus, Beams Boy, may have stolen the spotlight.

Steel Bookends From BOOK/SHOP

01

Images

01. Steel Bookends.
02. Powder-coated.

Words

Although I predominantly buy books to make my apartment look more intellectual, I do occasionally read one or two of them along the way. The bookcase we have was found on the street, weighs a ton, and truth be told is pretty ugly. These little chaps might improve it a little, and would definitely look the part if I ever got around to putting a shelf or two on the wall. Then again, that might also look like I'm trying too hard. Conundrums.

Post O'Alls Linden Jacket

01 02

Images

—01-04. The Linden Jacket in Navy.

Words

This happens all the time. Something I've overlooked, usually something that's not typically a style I go for, appears on my radar, and the temptation to try something different becomes just that little bit stronger. While the Linden from Post O'Alls might not be the type of jacket most often associated with the brand, it's also not the most widely seen either, and makes for something a little more out of the ordinary. Who am I kidding? It's a blue cotton jacket, with pockets and a zip. It is nice though.

Restocked: The Plant Journal Issue 1 & 2

01

Images

01. Issue 1 - Staghorn Fern.
02. Issue 2 - Monstera Deliciosa.

Words

Of all the magazines we carry, all the magazines I look at, this one has something about it that I love. The list of contributors is impressive, but it's also rough around the edges, raw, wild somehow in its design. I like that about it. The unpredictability feels fresh; unusual amongst its perfectly gridded counterparts. We just received a small restock of the first two issues. Get them while you can, I've got a feeling they're going to become quite sought after.
