—01. Off-white suede.

Words

It's been a couple of seasons since the Converse Addict line produced a great sneaker, in my opinion. Recently however they shifted their focus to the Jack Purcell, which turned out to be a good decision.

It's fairly difficult to find vintage Braun items in North America, but Sit & Read has come across an RT 20 Radio. It's a beautiful example of Dieter Rams design and the minimalist aesthetic that Braun pioneered.

The Margaret Howell men's footwear range is never enormous, but the small selection of styles offered are always extremely wearable. These black, bench made chukka boots are easy to dress up, or down, and are a great fall option with trousers or denim.

—01-03. Published by Damiani.

Words

The 412 page monograph on influential Italian designer Massimo Osti is now available in both a standard and a limited edition trade version. The former is affordable and the latter a work of genius even Massimo would have been proud of: 150 numbered pieces each hand bound in original Osti fabric, and presented in an embossed card box with 150 loose-leaf images of the Osti studio and the daily processes that took place there. This book is a near-essential purchase that took 4 years to make and was written and edited by Osti's wife Daniela Facchinato.
