Arc'teryx Veilance Actuator Jacket

01. Gore-Tex Superlight 3L.
02. Internal pockets.

Words

Unlike past versions, this season's Actuator Jacket by Arc'teryx Veilance is rendered in Gore-Tex. The understated exterior, drop hand pockets, adjustable hood and elastic cuffs remain, but the textile upgrade takes the lightweight style up a notch in terms of versatility. Equally appealing is the navy blue colour option, which offers something a little more unique than black.

Available from 290 Square Meters

Album: The Portraits of Duane Michals 1958-1988

Words

First published in 1988 and now into its second edition, this book of portraits from the acclaimed photographer Duane Michals presents 125 gravure printed plates in a large 11 x 14-inch volume. The composition of Michals' images is masterful and totally distinct, relying on visiting the subject and capturing their essence on location, rather than bringing them into the studio. It’s this approach of avoiding shooting outside of the subject's element that instills all of his photography with the ephemerality of passing moments – his trademark for nearly 60 years. 

Available from Twin Palms

Freunde von Freunden: Sayori and Toyotsugu Wada


Words

The father/daughter duo of architect and surfer, Toyotsugu, and illustrator and music lover, Sayori Wada, were recently the subjects of a Freunde von Freunden interview profiling their incredible light-filled, beach-inspired home and providing insight into their daily lives. The former certainly seems a lot closer to an idealized surf home than the cramped living spaces the Japanese metropolis is sometimes known for, making for a refreshing glimpse of enviable Tokyo living.

Workers Spring-Summer '15

01. Mountain Shirt Parka.
02. Jungle Fatigue Trousers.

Words

One of the more interesting collections for me every season is Takashi Tateno’s Workers line. I greatly enjoy seeing what vintage reference he is utilizing for each collection, as most of his pieces are based on workwear, military, outdoor or traditional styles from the 1930s-70s. It is also interesting to see how he might reconfigure designs from previous collections, as is the case with his latest Mountain Shirt Parka. He is certainly taking a fresh approach to creating vintage reproductions and his website is also a fount of information, featuring many of the original items he takes inspiration from.

Words

Gosha Rubchinskiy recently put together a list of inspirational Russian books for a short feature on the Oki-ni website. There is an interesting mix of painting, photography, sport and subculture, which isn't overly surprising given the collection's references.
