083: Chilly accessories, tall boots, and delights for the home both big and small
A Kassl Editions trench coat sets today's mood.
Named for the large, vertical newspaper format, think of this weekly supplement as a shopping cheat sheet cribbed from far-reaching corners of the internet.
An item to set today’s mood: Kassl Editions trench coat.
Aside from tall boots (and we’ll get to those), the most sought-after item among Mag readers seems to be trench coats. And believe me, I can relate! It took me, oh I don’t know…three years of watching Kassl Editions coats before allowing myself to fix the problem I knew I had with the solution I knew would work. (Which can be made easier by generous sales on SSENSE and END.) Where it lacks in warmth, it makes up for in impermeability and excusable indoor wear (I pointedly skipped shedding a layer on several social drop-ins this week and have no regrets—there’s something to reserving one’s familiarity, wouldn’t you say?).
You’re asking about…
I’ve been Tár-pilled and recently, the urge to buy a baseball hat overtook me—I sprung for a vintage wool one quite like this ‘90s Gap cap to actually keep my head warm; opera gloves, but they’re mittens in a pink mohair-silk blend from Dutch brand Pien Studios; the best scarves lately are actually half-capes, like this Eckhaus Latta “Poet Scarf”; the other best scarves have preppy collars like this blue By Far wool and cashmere-blend knit; and how about an accessory for your accessory as with this scarf ring from Toga that keeps your cravat tails in place?
A candle holder when dressed with waxed tapers and a candy dish or key catch without, this Stoff Nagel chrome bowl is a capable apartment shapeshifter; speaking of shifting shapes, an arty string of Sunnei Murano glass anal beads can do its given job just well (surely?), but might be best left suggestively along a bookshelf—especially now that it’s finally on sale; this Kassl Editions x Muller Van Severen lounger riffs off the former’s puffy bags and lands as a stacked, pillowy armchair in utopian plasticine blue; also in the business of mutating, Alvaro Ucha Rodriguez’s sconces for Lichen cast thoughtfully directional light from behind breathing aluminum wings; and finally, something with some permanence to it—this Brutes Ceramics tumbler resolves to stay exactly as it is through whatever sipping adventure is thrown at it.
and knee-high boots.
The people have SPOKEN and they demand BOOTS, so a few current favorites: Peter Do riding boots with a deep v-cut front in a burgundish brown, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re under $600 by a fluke; not the By Far Edie boots that have otherwise occupied minds this season, but a bounds-more-fascinating pair in the gray of a petrified forest; these slipper-like Salvatore Ferragamo boots on The Outnet (twice) with the most special metal emblem on the upper—I’ve been stalking them for months; I’m of the opinion that wedge boots have been unfairly maligned and in fact actually solve many of the woes I try/fail to resolve by wearing MNZ Olympias outside in 40º—these by Indentidá with an almost perfectly straight shaft are the best I’ve found yet; and not cheap but cheapER Margiela tabi boots in a fudgy brown with an insouciantly bunched slender shaft.
