Words

One of my very favourite places, hosting a retrospective exhibition of works by one of my very favourite sculptors. Is there much more I need to say, to explain why I'm so excited about undertaking my first seasonal trip to Beacon, New York in a few weekend's time? Well, if there is, then the New York Times review of the show linked below should help fill in any gaps, and provide some context to anyone unfamiliar with the American minimalist sculptor's work.

As the world tour of men's fashion weeks continues, there are few resources better than Style.com and T Magazine for quality updates on the latest collections and behind the scenes imagery. I especially like this series from T Magazine which uses beautiful photography to capture a more intimate look at the clothes and the people wearing them.

Margaret Howell presented their Spring-Summer '15 menswear collection in London yesterday. The English brand remained true to their trademark palette, combining a variety of greys and blues with touches of white and beige. Cropped trousers, parkas and knitwear accented the classic shirting, scarves and footwear to create another beautiful collection.

Words

As the trail of fashion shows have begun in Europe, we'll be seeing a lot of new collections in the weeks to come. While it's not something we generally cover extensively, these behind the scenes photographs from Jil Sander's Fall-Winter '14 show in Milan offer an interesting insight, and provide a more intimate look at some of the collection's key pieces and fabrics.

After Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master

Words

While this might not be considered typical blogging fare, any interview with Paul Thomas Anderson is usually too good not to recommend reading. The New York Times recently spent some time with the director during an unusual and lesser seen stage of his latest film's production: the time spent after the release; winding down and cleaning up.

People Watching: Steve Roden

In her latest People Watching for the New York Times Leslie Williamson says of artist Steve Roden: "every time our paths have crossed he tells me a story about some amazing object he found at a flea market or auction site. His collecting often inspires and feeds his art. Even the research he undertook last fall at the Berlin archives of the German philosopher and literary critic Walter Benjamin was a bit of a treasure-trolling expedition. “I didn’t know what I was looking for,” Roden told me. “I just know I wanted to find something.” This mind-set might be the key to Roden’s art. He isn’t an artist who creates for specific exhibitions; his work continually evolves with the subjects that interest him and the objects he finds. He is a seeker, and through his seeking he creates."
