Nike continue to push the Huarache and the most recent release comes in two tonal options – the grey version being my choice. The mix of synthetic and suede, with the white sole make this simple make-up a very strong one.

Released today by emerging Scottish publisher Lawson's Books, Anna et Salomé is a new body of work from Barcelona-based photographer Adrià Cañameras. Having previously issued Par Hasard, a 24-page monotone offset zine as part of Fibra's Sr. Dalton series, this title offered him the opportunity to explore a singular theme in more detail. Section sewn in a first edition of 500, with a cover produced in acrylic paint by seasoned artist Michael Docherty, the book's central focus is the Mediterranean. Developed from a personal project which allowed Cañameras to reflect on the environment he grew up around, the images were captured in various locations along the Costa Brava in Spain and on the French island of Corsica. Shot between June 2012 and March 2013 and described by the publisher as "part survey, part celebration and part meditation," Anna et Salomé functions on abstract and geological levels alike, representing an incredibly mature body of work that belies the photographer's years.

The Bureau has introduced Golden Bear Sportswear to their offering this season with a selection of leather and suede baseball jackets from the classic American outerwear company.

“In preparing for a solo exhibition, American painter Landon Metz was commissioned to portray his work process in his New York based West Street Studio through a camera lens, for two intensive weeks. The limited edition photo-book is unique in its kind as the art form differs from that of the artist's signature. The book contains a 4-paged conversation between Landon Metz and American art curator Diego Cortez, as well as a poem written by the author.”

Of all the items I've seen riding the wave of modified army apparel, these pants are probably my favourite because the fit has not been modified by multiple reconfigured panels. Reserved for the cargo pockets, the primitive embroidery adds a welcome punch of colour to the cotton OD fabric, but otherwise these are a classic pair of deadstock military cargos and nothing more.

I recently came across an interesting collection of photos taken by Chris John Dewitt during his visits to America in the 1970s and '80s. He covers cities like New York and Los Angeles, but also everywhere in-between, in both black and white and colour. He includes notes and information with each image: telling us where it was taken and what has changed in the location since. It’s a fun read as well as a valuable resource.
