Rethinking Evisu Denim   A New Look for Spring/Summer 2014

After several returns and reboots, Evisu reappear once again for Spring/Summer 2014.

The fact is, Evisu make some great denim once all the tricks and fireworks are put aside and I will never be parted from my beloved Type 2 Jacket with its neat pleats and perfect cut. This is the Evisu the brand want you to remember: clean, authentic selvedge denim alongside a selection of Japan via America casuals. Check suits, aloha prints and work jackets, time to take another look. Head to the gallery.

See the Modern Renovations of the A-Frame Rethink Project House

See the Modern Renovations of the A Frame Rethink Project House

Bromley Caldari Architects re-imagine this classic ’60s style A-frame house with a full renovation. The beachside dwelling, although interesting, is limited by its peak shape. Designers were forced to utilize the space in interesting ways: They projected the bayside windows outward while expanding the living and kitchen spaces to encompass two full stories. This weekend getaway in Long Island proves that one doesn’t have to build something new to have a unique and modern space. Browse the gallery.

Preview Ai Weiweis Largest New York Exhibit, According to What?

The Brooklyn Museum of Art presents Ai Weiwei: According to What?, the prolific Chinese artist’s first large-scale exhibition in New York. This is the last and largest stop in Weiwei’s global tour and includes works not seen at previous venues. The exhibition features the controversial photo series, Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn (1995 – 2009), and is accompanied by the paint-dipped antique vases themselves. Weiwei, who’s not allowed to leave China for speaking up against the Chinese government, explores concepts like cultural identity, tradition, and politics, forcing us to question our place in such strange times. The exhibition opens April 18 and will run through August 10. Learn more here and preview it above.

Selectism Q&A | CT Scuderia’s Enrico Margaritelli on Watches and Motorbikes

Selectism Q&A | CT Scuderias Enrico Margaritelli on Watches and Motorbikes

Enrico Margaritelli may not have been at the forefront while working with brands like Fossil, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, or Diesel, but we can guarantee that you’ve purchased a watch that was designed under his direction. Margaritelli founded his brand, CT Scuderia (Conta Tempo Scuderia), in 2011 and considers it to be much more personal to him than the past companies he’s worked with. The CT Scuderia watches perfectly honor his grandfather’s WWII stopwatch from WWII as well as his love for the motorbike from his previous career as a café racer. We met with Margaritelli to talk about the brand, the similarities between watches and motorcycles, and how it feels to finally be the man at the forefront. Take a leap to the interview below and shop CT Scuderia here.
