Not Designed But Engineered

Video

Directed by Manabu Gaku Inada.

Words

Gaku Inada met Daiki Suzuki four years ago, when they began surfing together as part of a group of friends who'd meet regularly and drive out to the beach before dawn. They'd spend the hour-long trip discussing everything from '80s New York art culture to music, their families, fashion and the day's surf conditions. From those conversations Gaku became interested in discovering what his surfing colleague did outside of their early mornings at the beach, and arranged to film Daiki as he worked on his clothing line, Engineered Garments. This outsider's view of Suzuki’s unique approach – “not designed but engineered” – is the subject of the above short film, recently released by Inada Studio.

Needles Suflur Dye Asyemmetric Deck Shoes

–01. Navy Sulfur Dye.

Words

You'd have to be a lot cooler than I am, to run this look. Although as with most of the Needles collection that doesn't stop me admiring the idea somewhat wistfully. These Sulpher Dyed deck shoes are a playful and unique take on a classic design; modeled on a Top-Sider last from the 1970's. Only time will tell if their Converse inspired siblings will make an appearance on these shores later in the summer. Those I might just be able able to pull off. Although honestly, probably not.

Available at Nepenthes New York
