Sruli Recht Relaunches Web Store

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.

SZ MIX | Rick Owens

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. Fashion is often intertwined with music, so we thought why not? Our first mix is by Rick Owens. Rick contributed the flagship piece on his role models for volume one. Here is what he wrote about his mix,

THESE ARE SELECTIONS FROM MY FAVORITE PLAYLISTS ON MY IPHONE – “CRACKWHORE” FOR THE LOUD STUFF AND “FAG” FOR THE PIANO BAR STUFF.

IT ALL USED TO BE SISTERS OF MERCY AND WAGNER BUT NOW I CAN ONLY LISTEN TO MUSIC THAT’S SUPERFICIAL – EITHER BIG AND DUMB FOR THE GYM OR SUGAR SHOWTUNES FOR WORK.

SHOP | TABO | BRESCIA

Following the success of their first shop Desenzano del Garda, Italy, the founders of Tabo, Riccardo Bettoni & Nicola Tononi, now opened a second boutique in Brescia. 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. The owners plan on monthly installations and collaborations with designers, artists, and musicians.

A CLOSER LOOK | AMERICA STILL LIKES ME

At StyleZeitgeist magazine we count the menswear editorial, “America Still Likes Me,” one of our proudest moments. Based on the Joseph Beuys’s 1974 infamous performance piece, “I like America and America Likes Me,” it was published in volume 2. We have tried to recreate everything as it was, down to the hay, the felt, and the newspapers. The gorgeous creature playing the part of the coyote is actually half-wolf, half-husky.

IS by Individual Sentiments

Yoko Ito, the designer behind the Japanese brand Individual Sentiments who cut her teeth at the now defunct Carpe Diem, has launched a capsule footwear collection called IS. Made in Italy, the line will be available in select stores this fall. 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.
