This past week was a big week in collaborations. From N. Hoolywood, Filson, WANT les Essentiels, NIGO and more, brands we love collaborated with unlikely but perfect partners to bring us things we never knew we needed. Take a leap to find out if you missed it.
We’ve had a lot of indigo-dyed this and that lately, so we thought we’d do you a favor and give you the best by weeding out the rest. See some good examples from the likes of Champion, Boneville, Isaora, etc.
One of our favorite accessories brands, WANT les Essentiels, release a collection of nautical-inspired accessories exclusively for MR PORTER. The six-piece collection includes a cardholder, weekender, backpack, wristlet, dopp kit, and of course, their signature O’Hare tote.
This week, we rolled out the first of our new series, “Best Editorials.” April 2014 was a good month in both print and online editorials, spanning all types of content categories, from art and fashion to even food.
Award-winning photographers David Alan Harvey and Steve McCurry of the Magnum collective designed a small collection of camera bags for Filson. The bags incorporate their extensive professional and personal experiences in lugging around a massive amounts of gear, and they look good.
With Fall/Winter 2014, industrial designer Marc Newson will meet 10 years at G-Star Raw. His seasonal collections are always strong, this time even more so with reversible patched jackets and denim-like wool.
NIGO takes reference from popular Lee Jeans styles from the ’20s and ’30s to produce a small capsule collection of three models. He emblazons his name on back pockets of two cowboy jean fits as well as a pair of overalls. This particular writer only wishes that these came in women’s.
Warsaw-based online magazine Thisispaper release new and improved accessories with the relaunch of their web shop. The Top Roll Rucksack, Newspaper Rucksack, Market Bag and Pocket Bag all come in cotton canvas with vegetable-tanned leather details, in impossibly clean black, white and off-white colorways.
International Weird Collage Show
Upon first hearing the name of this art show, we thought it was a joke. Thankfully though, it’s not. Over 30 artists from 10 different countries gathered to showcase their “weird collages” at Brooklyn’s Invisible Dog Arts Center (what a name for the venue, huh?).
