Best is Enough

Published today, the Muji book by Rizzoli offers insight into this global Japanese brand's craftmanship and design.

This fascinating monograph provides an unprecedented view into the inner workings of Muji, one of the most influential brands leading sustainable design. A prescient advocate of sustainable consumption and the matchless utility of good design, Muji’s founding principle was to develop new and simple products at reasonable prices by making the best use of materials while minimizing their impact on the environment. From a humble inaugural line of eight products nearly three decades ago, the brand now sells nearly five thousand different products in hundreds of its own stores in Asia, Europe, and North America.

On His list

We asked blogger and style connoisseur Ken Ace to share some of his season's favourites.

Wings + Horns - Fall / Winter 2010

I'm proud to say that this Canadian brand has made it to the top of my list because it reflects my hunger for this upcoming season perfectly. It's simple, well-made & good quality for the right price. With their famous “Tiger Fleece”, Wings+Horns  Fall / Winter collection will definitely keep me in check this season.

The Varsity jacket

Here’s another one of my obsession for the fall:Varsity jackets are back. Streetwear fashion gets  the thumbs up on this one. With wool-Melton body and leather sleeves, this jacket from Heritage Research would be a sweet addition to my wardrobe.

Undefeated x New Balance Sonic 574

This is one of the most comfortable pair shoes I’ve ever worn in my life, and trust me, I’ve worn a couple, lol! This 574 model is made out of sweater material & suede. Apparently, New Balances are a  key component to that whole Scandinavian look so I guess I’m on point!

My IPhone 4


I never thought that a phone could have the best of me. I’m obsessed with it. It’s always in my hands, even at work while I’m helping customers out (My boss hates it, ☺).You have to understand that   before that, I had a puny Nokia 2730 so cut me some slack.  Though I’m still new to the tech game, I’d say I’m adjusting just fine.


For those who know me, you know that I’m a big music fanatic whether it’s jazz, pop, reggae, rap, etc… Now, we've all heard that hip-hop was dead well and it was almost true until I discovered J.Cole. This kid, to me, is the future of “great” hip-hop. Not only does he have mad skills, he actually makes me want to hear more and these days, that’s rare.
Listen to “Who Dat”, his first official single under the  RocNation label here.


Judge a book by its cover:

Coming out on October 26th is 'True Hip Hop' by New York based photographer Mike Schreiber.
Featuring stunning photographs of artists like Mos Def, Common, Biz Markie (...) and behind-the scene stories about the photo-shoots, this book is a must have for all images lovers.

Too cute!

Black, Red and beige

Reminiscent of Czech illustrator Josef Čapek's work, these beautiful and retro looking teaser posters for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan were unveiled last week. We're not really sure who designed them, but they're part of the international promotional package for the film.
Starring Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel and Mila Kunis amongst others, Black Swan is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated features of this season. With this new project described as a psychological thriller the Requiem for a Dream director takes us into the world of New York City ballet and we can't wait to see the result.
