Words

Our first delivery from Engineerd Garments has arrived in store. Included in the shipment are some great accessories, a handful of shirts, a couple jackets and some really nice hats. The short sleeve shirting is especially sharp, featuring polka dots and an interesting rayon/cotton paisley fabric. The field caps also look great and offer a nice alternative to traditional ball caps.

David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

01 02

Images

—01-04. All works by David Hockney.

Words

This January David Hockney opened his latest exhibition, A Bigger Picture, at The Royal Academy in London. In a short interview on their website, he stresses that it's not a retrospective, and without it many of the pieces would never have been done in the scale they are seen on the Acadmey's walls today. The Yorkshire landscapes are quite beautiful, some using technicolor combinations, and some as simple charcoal sketches. The show also includes Hockney's iPad drawings and a selection of new films. I was lucky enough to see it on my last afternoon in London, and it's well worth a look if you're in town.

The Engineer's Jacket

01

Info

—01. Available in cotton canvas & herringbone wool.

Words

Since receiving the last shipment from Post Overalls just before Christmas, there has been one standout item in the shop for me. The Engineer's jacket is becoming one of the brand's most iconic, due to its frequent appearances season after season and Takeshi's obsession with the work wear style. For me, the raglan sleeves, weight of the fabrics and great color options make it one of the most wearable coats I have right now. I brought it with me to Europe on this two and a half week trip and I've worn it every single day now, with no complaints.

Chairs by ROLU

01

Info

—01. + Chair OSB.

Words

Having admired the work of the art and furniture design studio ROLU for a little while now, I was happy to discover an interview with one of the studios founders Matt Olsen in the latest issue of Bad Day magazine. The interview was conducted by Patrick Parrish, of MONDOBLOGO fame, and offers a great insight into the concepts, inspirations and processes the company uses. ROLU's architectural chair designs are a particular favourite of mine, and use plywood and OSB to create an interesting alternative to some of the more pedestrian seating options available elsewhere.

High! Standard Shop Looks

01

Images

—01. Fall Blues.
—02. Spring Greens.

Words

These outfit selections are from one of our collective favourite shops in Tokyo: High! Standard. The store itself will be featured in the forthcoming issue of the magazine, and while their Spring shipments may well be arriving already, there's still plenty of winter stock available for most people to pick up the last of their seasonal buys. I'd personally be more than happy to stock up on either the last of what's left, or the first of what's coming in, at one of the very best retailers around.
