The modern and inspirational Seattle-based retailer, Totokaelo, always has an interesting selection of unique items in their Art-Object section. You can add the French company, Adonde, to that list, from which they have recently received a large selection of ceramic pieces. The modern forms fit perfectly on a shelf next to the shop’s other offerings, with the hallmark of these designs being vaguely futuristic vertical walls and solid colours that renounce the organic, handmade feel of other pottery and imbue these everyday objects with a decidedly contemporary feel.

Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith Spring 2015

—01. Clear Sky.

Words

I can't recall, in my relatively brief experience of the industry, a shoe being released to such acclaim only to be so overdone and over-worn in such a short period of time. It's truly a testament to the modern landscape and how quickly trends are moving today. That said, if any shoe can stand up to the hype and navigate the varying levels of appeal and acceptance, it's the Stan Smith. This spring Raf Simons has again re-coloured the shoe in solid tones, the pale pink and clear sky being the standouts for me personally.

Photographed by Dan McMahon, Totokaelo's latest online editorial features new pieces from Haider Ackermann, Dries Van Noten and Won Hundred. Sleepwalker especially highlights Ackermann's fine fabrics and casual shapes, as we follow our main character from bed to a walk through the city late at night.

Dries Van Noten Skin Vinny Bomber

–01. 69% viscose, 31% silk.

Words

Dries Van Noten's Spring-Summer '15 collection features a variety of luxurious silks and fine patterns. The looks on the runway had an almost high-end sleepwear feel in terms of fabric and silhouette, accentuated by the way the garments moved. I mean that in the best way possible too. The Skin Vinny Bomber showcases this theme perfectly, while still being very wearable. The jacket is reversible and the geometric side might even edge out the plain black for me.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Plaid Wool Scarf

—01. 100% wool.
—02. Made in Scotland.

Words

As we move into fall, the consideration of wool and warming accessories will soon become a reality again. In turn, the general tone of the clothing we wear often becomes more muted, so adding a subtle red plaid via a winter scarf is not a bad idea.
