There is no doubt in our mind that the Iceland-based designer Sruli Recht is one of the most interesting creators out there. Finally, there is an opportunity to buy his otherworldly designs from his newly relaunched webshop. We highly recommend the wallets, bags, and of course the special edition of StyleZeitgeist magazine.
Here is the new section of our blog, where we invite people who have participated in StyleZeitgeist Magazine, whether as subject or contributor, to create their own mixtape.

The unisex boutique, housed on two floors of a 1940s building is an exercise in aesthetic restrain, with a white interior and minimal decor. Among the more established designers such as Boris Bidjan Saberi, Nicolas Andreas Taralis, A1923, and Julius, the shop will carry brands like InAisce, Masnada, Y.Project.

All we got from the reticent designer was the rather cryptic, “IS has the same concept as Individual Sentiments and follows the need of a geographical specialization and technique.” Guess we’ll let the products speak for themselves.
Here is a little preview of one of the editorial photo shoots that will appear in the second issue of StyleZeitgeist magazine.
