To celebrate Gap‘s arrival in Italy, the chain launched a collab with Valentino. Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli focused this capsule collection around pieces in army drab khaki punctuated by the Italian house’s signature ruffles and bows.Add a comment

There have been so many short fashion films lately surrounding product launches. I don’t quite know what to make of them. Are they supposed to be extensions of editorials? Are they high end commercials? Does the script/plot matter? Am I looking for character development? Is it inappropriate to laugh? Should I be looking at the clothes?
So into this new Syket song. It’s 90s shoegaze from an airtight time capsule. Syket’s from northern Sweden but could easily pass for a Manchester band. “Let It Heal” is the first single from their new EP Fish Band which features a remix mastered by Studio‘s Dan Lissvik.Add a comment
I want this plastic ring kit from London designer Rentaro Nishimura. I like making things, but I get impatient when it comes to finishing them cleanly. So having a kit with a finite end solves the problem of loose ends, rough edges, and messy connections. I guess I can’t take much credit for putting together a toy and wearing it as jewelry, but I’m fine with that. The ring would be super good even if it came out of a factory pre-assembled.

The 1L vacuum thermos is a classic from Stelton. Designed by Erik Magnussen, it stands 12″ high and is made out of ABS plastic with a glass liner.
Ikea’s Behövd thermos also stands at 12″ and similarly fills up to a liter in its glass liner. Its shell is polypropylene, though, and it was designed by Chris Martin and Magnus Elebäck.Add a comment
