Stephen Kenn, originally from Canada, moved to Los Angeles and the rest is history. His focus on designing denim, bags, accessories and furniture has culminated in the Stephen Kenn City Gym Sofa ($5000). The sofa's frame is made from welded steel with a marbled brown finish. Custom webbing belts, and leather straps secure the cushions which are made from re-purposed WWII military fabric.
The Harutzim House by Sharon Neuman Architects ($TBA) is a great example of the popular open floor plan. The problem with older more traditional homes is you usually end up with an unused living room and dining room. With modern families it makes more sense to incorporate the eating areas and the living room into a larger main or great room. The main room in the Harutzim house features an open kitchen with lounge area to the side, access to the outside, two eating areas, and a large family room for entertaining . Hidden behind the cabinets behind the central couches is a desk area. Pretty much everything a modern family.(more…)
If you're a weekend explorer and you love hitting the trails or putting yourself in adverse conditions then you'll love the versatility of the PJ-1 Packable Expedition Jacket ($365). The PJ-1 was designed to deliver the ultimate protection for all events. The jacket has been stitched from waterproof S1-J fabric and features a drawstring hood stored in the zipper collar that has been designed to sit under a helmet and cinched during bad weather. Medium in weight, the stretchable jacket has been sized with a longer bottom seam to sit like a mountain jacket without restricting the wearer during movement. The jacket features numerous pouches, folds down to the size of a softball and has been manufactured in the US. An ideal choice for anyone seeking to tackle the elements with minimal luggage.
If you're familiar with the James Bond movies then you know the Aston Martin DB5 is one of the most iconic cars of the film series. The David Brown Speedback GT ($TBA) looks to take that same look and bring it into the modern era. The Speedback GT looks almost identical to the original, but it's been stretched to fit over the Jaguar XK chasis and features the supercharged 5.0-litter V8 from the KXR. With that engine you'll get 510 horses, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. David Brown only plans to build about 50 of the cars each year so make sure you order well in advance.
Oneness is now offering the Jordan V.5 Grown Low - Gym Red ($85) and you just might want to add these casual kicks to your spring lineup. If I had one word to describe these shoes it would be smooth. The upper is minimal, to say the least with mostly hidden lace eyelets and only the Jordan logo showing prominently on the tongue. The whole kit sits on a bright white midsole, adding additional contrast to the overall presentation.
