NikeLab Air Force 1 Low

01

Image

01. Premium leather upper and liner.

Words

I'd be curious to know how many versions of the Air Force 1 have been released by Nike since 1982. Over the years, the brand has attempted many times to elevate the icon with premium materials while maintaining its original aesthetic, and more often than not it hasn't been a total success. The recent NikeLab release, however, is very, very good. There are low and mid options in white, black, navy and red, all featuring deluxe uppers and Phylon cushioning. The only detail I might reconsider is the clear sole but as it's out of sight, it's easy to overlook.

Drawing Then: Innovation and Influence in American Drawings of the Sixties

Info

Dominique Lévy
909 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10021
January 27 – March 19, 2016

Words

Dominique Lévy in New York is currently showing a selection of drawings from some of my favourite artists. Curated by Kate Ganz, the exhibition features a variety of works by the likes of Agnes Martin, Brice Marden, Sol LeWitt, Richard Tuttle, Ellsworth Kelly and Josef Albers, among others. Looking at the evolution of drawing and the development of some of America's most prolific minimalists during an important time in the country's history, the show's tone is calm and mature, highlighting the power and impact their seemingly simple compositions.

Barbour SL Bedale 60/40 Jacket

01. Four front pockets.
02. Rear vents.

Words

This 60/40 edition of the Barbour Bedale, created for the Japanese market, offers an interesting alternative in terms of fit and fabric. The cotton-nylon blend is one of those classic materials, often used for sturdily built breathable outdoor clothing, that has functioned awfully well since becoming a cult textile in the late 1960s. By using this cloth on a slim cut version of their most beloved jacket style, the British brand have created a real winner.

Esherick to Nakashima

Info

Modernism Museum Mount Dora
145 E. Fourth Avenue
Mount Dora, Florida 32757
Open through late 2016

"The 76 pieces on view at Florida's Modernism Museum Mount Dora prove, yet again, why the American Studio Movement master is unrivaled for his sensitive handling of his chosen material." This in-depth look at George Nakashima features the woodworker's pieces alongside those of Wharton Esherick, continuing the "intellectual thread" of the gallery's inaugural exhibition, From Wharton to Wendell, which juxtaposed the work of Esherick and Wendell Castle.

01. Three different covers.

Words

StudioSmall's work with Margaret Howell is some of the design agency's most successful, achieving a consistently beautiful balance between the client's vision and their own principles – irrespective of the medium or brief. Looking at this output overall, it's the printed invitations that often stand out, and a range of them are assembled here. The 36-page commemorative publication explores the evolution of a decade-long relationship grounded in the Gill Sans typeface, alongside a contextualising essay from Eye magazine editor and co-owner John L. Walters.

Sculpture 4tet: Luciano Fabro, Jean-Luc Moulène, Bruce Nauman & Danh Vō

Info

Marian Goodman Gallery
5-8 Lower John Street
London, W1F 9DY
January 12 – February 20, 2016

Words

"What’s in a name? And how can certain contemporary artworks benefit from a critical reflection on the ancient term, ‘sculpture’? Bringing together the work of four artists from different backgrounds and generations, it is this question that the exhibition Sculpture 4tet poses. To retain the name ‘sculpture’ for the works that comprise the exhibition is to insist on the multiple effects of memory that they deploy. Each of the artists, in their own way, can be considered an enemy of amnesia: mythology, history of art, personal memory and rumours of past events are as much materials as the marble, metal or neon with which they work. The human figure, often taking fragmentary or more metaphorical forms, pervades the works and it is thus the even older concept of the ‘statue’ that echoes in the back and forth of associations of the exhibition."
