Nepenthes NY

—01. Artwork by Hiroshi Kagoshima.

Words

After our appointment with Engineered Garments yesterday, we went down to the Nepenthes shop to have a look around. The shop had recently received quite a bit of Engineered Garments' spring collection and also is currently featuring some really nice art by Hiroshi Kagoshima. While there were a few new pieces I wanted, they just so happened to show up in Vancouver today as well. Our first delivery includes shirting accessories and the tote bags from the Workaday collection.

Some Accessories

01

—01. Hand-sewn bandanas.

Words

Sure, you could maybe do this yourself after collecting some vintage bandanas and finding a seamstress to cut and sew them up for you, but will you? It would be much better to just purchase the finished article from Nepenthes NY. The unique accessories are simple in concept, but add a nice bit of texture and colour to an outfit.

Nepenthes Braided Ring Belt

—01. Available in brown and black.

Words

A braided ring belt has been on my mind for a little while but I couldn't recall ever actually seeing one, until today. It looks like Nepenthes has again answered the call and have done a nice version in brown leather with antiqued hardware. It's definitely a good looking belt and something I could see myself wearing pretty regularly.

Nepenthes Melange Socks

—01. Salt and pepper, and purple.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

Nepenthes do a lot of things right, at least in my opinion. One of the constants is their melange socks which they seem to do all year round. Fortunately with the opening of the Nepenthes store in New York this fall, they might actually be easy to purchase in the near future.

Nepenthes Fishing Oxfords

01

Details

—01. Available in black and brown leather, and beige suede.

Words

The ripple sole oxford is a shoe that I've had a bit of a crush on for a few seasons now. New versions from Yuketen and Russell Moccasin, and old factory samples from Alden offer a really unique and great looking option. Nepenthes, however, are arguably the masters of creatively interpreting American products for the Japanese market. This might just be another case of what they do best, because I don't see anybody around these parts wearing the ripple sole oxford - that's a challenge.

Engineered Garments Workaday Tote

01

—01. Subtle contrast stitching.
—02. Removable shoulder strap.
—03. Tough off-white canvas.

Words

Two things that I really like, Engineered Garments and canvas bags. The Workaday canvas collection has been around for seasons now but the tote bag continues to elude me. It's mostly the price point of around $225 that has kept me from buying it, but it's always on my mind and at the top of my list. The Workaday range from Engineered Garments is probably my favorite capsule collection. It consists of great products across the board, and this tote bag is one of my favorites. I will definitely purchase it one of these days, but in the meantime you will also catch a glimpse of it in our spring issue of Inventory as well.
