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.

Gosha Rubchinskiy's Bookshelf


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.

Union recently received their first shipment from Wacko Maria. The label hasn't been widely distributed outside of Japan in the past, so it's good to see their product hitting stores we can purchase from a lot more easily.

Venice, CA 90291
March 19 – April 19, 2015

Words

After recently holding an exhibition devoted to the work of Ed and Deanna Templeton at the LA Art Book Fair, New York's Boo-Hooray gallery continue to exert their influence on the West Coast with a group photography show featuring the likes of Ray Potes, Tobin Yelland, C.R. Stecyk III, Andrea Sonnenburg and Jerry Hsu. The curation is logically complimentary, bringing together artists whose obvious confluence is where the subcultural fields of skateboarding, zine making and street photography meet. Following an opening reception between 7 and 10pm tonight, the exhibition can be viewed by appointment until April 19th.

Scugnizzi by Brett Lloyd

Info

First edition, 2014
Softcover
6.75 x 9.5 inches

Words

The thought of summers on the Mediterranean often seem dreamy and romantic, but Brett Lloyd's Scugnizzi, published by Dashwood Books, presents another perspective. Focusing on the beaches of Naples, the London-based photographer captures a different kind of beauty, paying particular attention to colour, the region's youth, and the richness of southern Italian culture.
