—01. Natural walnut ply.

Words

The SSB-1 is one of the most interesting compact bookcases on the market, providing a more attractive way to house some of your publications, rather than just shoving them between a couple of bookends. Hand cut, much like the previous birch version, this edition comes in a beautifully grained walnut ply which has been rubbed with a beeswax finish. No assembly is needed, other than slotting the pieces together, so you’ll be ready arrange your favourite or most read texts in no time.

Online Feature: Hotel Okura

—01. A striking exterior.

Words

Ahead of an editorial to be featured in the forthcoming issue of Inventory, longtime friend and contributor Marcelo Gomes presents an architectural exploration of the famed Hotel Okura. Originally opened in 1962 and built under the design direction of Yoshiro Taniguchi, Hideo Kosaka, Shiko Munakata and Kenkichi Tomimoto, the luxury modernist hotel has hosted every US president since Richard Nixon. It was announced recently that the main building would be demolished in September 2015, to make way for a new glass tower design. The outcry following this decision has been substantial, and a petition to save the original building can be signed by following the link below.

Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Flower Print Parka

—01. Made in Italy.

Words

The Raf Simons collection with Sterling Ruby has received a lot of press this season, from retailers, publications and celebrities – and for good reason. It's one of the more exciting projects right now, and while many of the products are a bit loud for my taste, there are a few gems in the offering. This olive green cotton parka features a pared down design with a classic graphic treatment on the back, which is enough to set it apart while still being very wearable.

Nike Gyakusou Holiday '14 Collection

—01-04. Men's and women's collections.

Words

While I always look forward to seeing each new Gyakusou collection, I feel that the Nike Running range has closed the gap in the past couple of seasons. For Holiday '14, however, Jun Takahashi's performance collaboration has evolved to the next level. The Utility Long Tights are the standout item, creating a single bottom layer that functions as two. This sort of growth in product design and experimenting, combined with the increasingly technical fabrics, makes for an especially exciting collection.

Kapital Katsuragi Django Pea Coat

01

Image

—01. 100% cotton.

Words

Kapital’s restrained designs are the ones that always catch my eye, ranking alongside some of the best from any Japanese brand. This single breasted pea coat is certainly of that ilk, featuring an overall simplicity, free from any superfluous details. The shorter cut and option to button the lapel at the neck make it a good choice if you're looking for a unique, lightweight cotton version of the always classic naval style.

Available from Blue Button Shop
