inventory 07 hot off the shelves. i new i needed it the second i saw it, because i’ve always sortof idolized nigo. if i could choose to hang out with anyone for a day, i would definitely spend the day picking the brains of nigo and pharrell. both so obscenely cool and innovative, yet very humble. i definitely appreciate and share their sense of aesthetic.
although ive come across this canadian publication many a time (a lot of my guy friends drool all over it), i never got the chance to take the time to read through it, until now. when i buy a magazine, its because i want to read every last word, not missing a single line of fine print. im still not done with this issue, but so far, so perfect. inventory has a lot of japanese flavor to it, and pays a lot of attention to brand history and details of design. i’ve been gushing over the layering and colors in the first editorial called ‘tashizan’, styled by fumihiko okabe (photo #2). i also particularly enjoyed the article ‘inside larry mckaughan’s vintage tokyo’, which lets you dive into the world of vintage americana classics and japan’s best collectors (photo #3). strongly encourage you to get your hands on a copy if you can!
