—01. Italian public transportation.

Words

After a few very hot days in Florence, we are back in London before flying out to Vancouver. The cool weather is somewhat of a relief, but the heat didn't stop us from enjoying the latest collections and seeing some of our friends from around the world. Our usual favorites produced great new pieces with exciting new materials, styles and fabrications - leaving us already looking forward to next spring.

The Superior Labor Camera Strap

01. Navy.
02. White.

Words

Sometimes it's the simplest things that I find the most appealing, whether it's something I have an immediate need for or not. Unfortunately for me the one camera I actually use on a semi-regular basis - the Contax T2 - has no need for, and no way of attaching, a nice camera strap. However, I'm sure that there are plenty of cameras out there that this simple canvas and leather camera strap from The Superior Labor would greatly improve.

Words

Another month, another excellent exhibition at Mondo Cane. Starting tonight, and running until July 12th, the New York store and gallery will be showing a selection of Japanese indigo boro from the photographer Eric Kvatek's personal collection. These pieces have been acquired on his frequent trips to the country's early morning antique markets, and are becoming increasingly more difficult to find.

Stone Island 30

—01. Curated by Simon Foxton and Nick Griffiths.

Words

Last night Stone Island opened an exhibition at Stazione Leopolda in Florence. 'Thirty Years of Research History and Experimentation' was curated by Simon Foxton and Nick Griffiths, alongside Carlo Rivetti. The presentation was very impressive, spanning several rooms, a variety of displays and displaying some incredibly innovative garments. The exhibition also featured a short film with interviews, brand imagery from the last 30 years and showcasing the company's headquarters. The exhibition is definitely worth a visit if you have the opportunity and if not, Stone Island have produced a book documenting the majority of the archive.

Unearthed: WW2 USN Herringbone Cap

Words

Of all the things hardest to find in the vintage market, well-fitting headwear must surely rank among the most difficult. At least for me, because whenever I come across a nice Daisy Mae, or interesting military cap of some sort, the size usually ends up being minute, and the hat unwearable. Which is why the hat stand I don't have is bare, while the iPhoto folder I do is heaving. This particular "find" comes from the always excellent A Platform Journal. Which you should probably bookmark, if for some reason you haven't already.
