Today Ryan Willms announced the closure of the two Inventory stores in Vancouver and New York. It´s really upsetting to me since I´ve been a big fan of the concept and the philosophy behind these stores.
Web imprint FreundevonFreunden had the chance to visit Ryan Willms, Editor-in-Chief of Inventory in his home in Vancouver. Inventory magazine and its retail stores focus on well-crafted products with a carefully considered selection of Japanese brands and products from the UK and Europe.
With another captivating editorial, Vancouver's noteworthy retailer and publishing platform Inventory released another series of seasonal Looks which I really couldn´t hold back. Shot at the Charles H. Scott Gallery and Sunrise Market in Vancouver, the editorial offers a look at the season's simple essentials from the likes of Margaret Howell, John Smedley, Engineered Garments and Yaeca, worn with accessories from Beams Plus, Whitehouse Cox and orSlow, amongst others. See the looks above and head over to the Inventory store and shop the featured pieces.
The Inventory store just updated their lookbook section with three new looks for this year’s fall/winter season. Inventory works as an online platform, magazine and store offering a unique and global perspective on design, craftsmanship, and culture, always with a high aesthetic demanding as you can see in their beautiful imagery displaying the latest menswear pieces for the upcoming season.
Inventory Magazine celebrates their cover feature in Issue 08 with a unique edition signed and customized by Mark Borthwick, the photographer and artist created several one-of-a-kind copies of the magazine featuring ink stains, wax marks, burns and writing on the pages of the interview an altered cover and a red string bookmark.
Inventory one of my favorites stores and lifestyle magazines continues to create nicely styled looks showcasing their online store collection. For Spring/Summer 2014 they´ve put together traditional and contemporary outfits featuring lightweight jackets from Needles and Arc’teryx Veilance, shirts by Maragret Howell, John Smedley and Engineered Garments.
