Ovadia2-4

While there were many noteworthy collections at (capsule) this year, one name was on everyone’s “must see” list: Ovadia & Sons.

YES, PLEASE | RBY45RPM WINTER LOOK-BOOK

I’ve become enamored of Rby45rpm over the years and this collection is only increasing that trend. After 10 years, they’re masters of marrying so many influences without seeming schizophrenic or overly trendy. Raw textures, beautifully dyed textiles, tailored and unstructured silhouettes, asian and western details – it’s all expertly controlled, harmonious, simple.  The look-books are also impressively … Continue reading

VIDEO | VIBERG BOOT

I recently stumbled upon this video about the Viberg Boot company produced by Inventory Magazine’s “Inventory Films”. It is about a year old so I’m surprised I haven’t seen more coverage, but, as one would expect from Inventory, it is still a beautifully shot piece about a company with an authentic past.  Inventory’s description does … Continue reading
