—01. Mingei pottery.

Words

After working with Terry Ellis on our last issue of Inventory, we decided to bring in a selection of pottery from Fennica. Terry and his partner Keiko are long-time Beams buyers and have created the Fennica brand to showcase a variety of Japanese and Scandinavian products. Besides the mingei pottery, we also have the Fennica Style Book which further illustrates what the brand is all about through short articles and beautiful photography.

Individualized Patchwork BD Shirt

01

Info

—01-03. Special make-up.

Words

I suspect we'll be seeing more of the Individualized Shirts range more in the coming seasons since they have started to show at Capsule. The brand offers a lot of customization and a basic shirt block. This patchwork plaid is a nice way to offer something relatively subtle and unique.

Weekend Viewing: How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?

01

Video

—01. By Norberto López Amado and Carlos Carcas.

Words

Although this excellent documentary originally came out in 2010, it took me until this past week to finally get around to viewing it. Thanks Netflix. I highly recommend that if it's cold and wet out where you are, or you otherwise have a little time on your hands this weekend, that you track down a copy and take in the work of one of Britain's most well-known and influential architects. After all: who doesn't love the Gherkin?

Bruno Mathsson Coat Stand

01

Images

01. Bent birch wood.
02. Hemp rope.

Words

There are things out there that you need, and there are things out there that you want; some of them are reasonable, others are not. This 1970s coat stand by the Swedish designer Bruno Mathsson, isn't something I need, and it's hardly a reasonable purchase (it's also not one I can actually make), but that does not make it any less desirable, nor any more rational a desire.

Paraboot Michael Shoe

01

Images

01-02. Cognac leather.

Words

I've been pretty stuck in my footwear ways for the last few months, but seeing these Paraboots in person definitely had me considering them. The cognac leather has a nice soft feel and the colour is especially good on this classic model.

—01. Extra Place.

Words

The month of January continues to be busy. Between buying, flying, line sheets and contractors, it's been an especially packed start to the new year. New York has reached some extreme temperatures this week as well, but it hasn't got in the way of us visiting some of our favorite showrooms and retailers around the city.
