Weekend Viewing: Last Days

—01. Michael Pitt as Blake.

Words

Sometimes you see a film at just the right time and it strikes an emotional chord. I'd been putting off watching Last Days, Gus Van Sant's 2005 semi-biographical account of Kurt Cobain's demise, but I was ready for it last Sunday. Michael Pitt stars as Blake, an often incomprehensible musician disenchanted with life, especially other people. Beautifully shot by longtime Van Sant collaborator, Harris Savides, the film follows Pitt around a sprawling Pacific Northwest estate, escaping conversations with friends and family. Restrained but gripping from start to finish, the most special moments are when he's alone and allows himself to open up through his music: the only way he knows how.

Tretorn Nylite Canvas Sneakers

—01. 100% post industrial sock liner.

Words

I’ve always been a fan of the unique design and simple nature of the Tretorn Nylite sneaker. The silhouette is unlike most others and the gullwing branding, especially in this case, is distinctive yet subtle. Suited to a variety of uses from deck shoe to daily wear, they would be a great alternative to the more common white sneakers that are readily available.

The Serpentine's two locations provide some of the most beautiful art viewing experiences in the world, due in large part to their incredible location within London's Hyde Park. They have now teamed up with fashion house Comme des Garçons to produce a limited edition fragrance devoted to, and inspired by, their breathtaking surroundings. Add in some incredible artwork by legendary YBA Tracey Emin, and you have a package too good to refuse.

Margaret Howell Graph Check Summer Shirt

—01. 63% linen, 37% cotton.

Words

One of my favourite pieces from the current Margaret Howell collection is the Summer Shirt. It's available in two fabrics and as we head into the heart of summer, it's a great option for the warm days and balmy evenings. Of the two fabrics, the cotton linen graph check is my first choice as the fabric falls nicely and suits the boxy cut well.

Jessica Hans Ceramics

—01. Glazed porcelain.
—02. Salt Lake Vases with Juniper Branch.

Words

I’ve been on a ceramics search lately, ranging from the simplest and most classic forms to the more artful and abstract – these examples falling squarely in the latter category. Based in Pennsylvania, Jessica Hans' work is expressive and playful, utilizing glazed porcelain as well as found materials in her misshapen designs, and offering a break from the uniform structures that you see in a lot of pottery.

While the summer season begins to draw to a close from a retail perspective, it has only just begun in terms of warm weather and the clothing needed to go with it. And with the heat comes the need for sartorial inspiration. With that in mind we're pleased to present a new online feature – an editorial featuring the Spring-Summer '14 White Mountaineering collection, shot by Jimi Franklin and styled by Masako Ogura.
