Midori Stationery

01

Info

—01. A January recommendation from Fantastic Man.

Words

I was reminded about this Japanese stationery brand twice recently. Firstly back in January Fantastic Man wrote a daily recommendation that sounded eerily familiar (thanks to the 6 man, hour long examination of the store we undertook in November): "We must have been doing something wrong during a recent visit to Japan, because unlike what we’d expected, we weren’t particularly successful in finding fabulous examples of the famed Japanese designer stationery and desk accessories. (The department store TOKYU HANDS is big, but not a great treasure source – where should we have gone instead?) Luckily, others are doing the search-and-select process for us, such as Amsterdam-based mail-order store Miscellaneous. Among lots of great objects are these attractive numbered brass paper clips. Much nicer than the common Post-It or the folded corner of a page." The paperclips are the work of the excellent Midori stationery company, and you can add Present to the list of the brands stockists should the above, and below, appeal to you. Present have themselves just received a reorder of the fantastic stationery, which was actually the second of the two recent reminders I mentioned earlier.

Always a pleasure when in town, popping into Present for a coffee and a browse often ends with a wish list in the making. This past week was no exception, and several pieces currently in stock certainly caught the post-Christmas eye...

Stone Island Shadow Project Stealth Jacket

01

Info

—01. Raso-R Windstopper® Hardshell.
—02. Concealed interior pockets.

Words

The Stealth Jacket is arguably the definitive Stone Island Shadow piece. The MKII version is this season's offering, and is perhaps the best to date. As with all Shadow Project pieces, the exterior shows a seemingly minimalist design, while an unfastening of the jacket itself reveals an abundance of well considered details. The Stealth Jacket has a total of 11 different pockets; only two of which are visible from the outside, and, in keeping with Stone Island's philosophies, offers not only technical superiority, but also an exceptional fit. Water resistant and wind proof thanks to the Raso-R Coated outer shell, the splash of green on the interior is the perfect hidden detail to help cement this as a modern classic.

Shaggy Dog for Present

01

Images

—01. Purple.
—02. Navy.

Words

Present have just received a selection of Shaggy Dog sweaters. These combed Shetland classics have been a staple at J.Press since the late 60s, but it's great to see them in London and in five different colours too. I like a mohair sweater in the winter, but these are an altogether warmer option, and a little less itchy which is always good.
