Forgive us for forgetting to post Part II of this interview with Belgian-based designer, Stephan Schneider. In this second piece of dialogue, he divulges future plans as a full-time designer (formerly taught at Berlin University of Fine Arts), the reason for his ambiguous numerical sizing, the botanica aesthetic of next Fall's collection and a handful of other telling tidbits.

In just a few seasons since starting his namesake clothing label, Christopher Raeburn has received much praise by his peers and press alike. After viewing his Autumn-Winter 2011 collection, STYLE.com stated, "it's not unreasonable to assert that Christopher Raeburn is the single most radical designer working today." In the same year Raeburn won the "Emerging Designer" British Fashion award for menswear, by the British Fashion Council.
In an article published a few days ago, the NY Times highlighted the use of recycled materials in Christopher Raeburn's collection. American Vogue once said, "Remember the four R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Raeburn," when describing the designer's contribution to all things green. Each season Raeburn remakes a number of vintage pieces by hand and uses various recycled materials such as Japanese fabric made from recycled plastic bottles.

It's only right that the forum that harbors the most reverence for the Belgian-based designer, is afforded the opportunity to conduct an interview with the man behind the eponymous label. Part I of this in-depth chat with Stephan Schneider reveals more to us about his exceptional approach to designing garments. He speaks candidly of his early years between Germany and Antwerp, his desire to project a friendly aesthetic in his clothing and of course, his textile-making process.

Join us on tonight from 6-9pm for the Vancouver launch of Earth People by Seth Fluker, refreshments from 33 Acres Brewing!
"Earth People is a visual narrative composed by Seth Fluker. Set against a backdrop of digital and natural landscapes, this sequence of images connects disparate strands of contemporary life through an array of photographic genres. With a haunting undertone of artifact and reverie, Earth People explores the introspective nature of human behaviour while tracing metaphysical observations."
DAZED DIGITAL did a recent interview with the Canadian photographer on his new book, which you can read HERE.

Minimal British Wristwear - In the short time that Uniform Wares has been in operation they have taken the industry of watchmaking by storm. Producing clean, legible, contemporary timepieces remains their singular focus, while using the best materials that suit the function of each particular model. Cereal Magazine recently conducted an interview with one half of the design duo to ascertain how the brand was first formed, their philosophy on design and how they plan to move Uniform Wares forward.
For the first segment of our holiday feature series, we took a morning visit to Dunlevy Snackbar, a neighbourhood favourite in Strathcona. This is the first of two editorials that we will feature this month. Devin is shot head to toe in a season-appropriate outfit sitting down for a snack and light read with some trusty tools and accessories from Kiosk and others.
View the feature here.
Since 2009, Uniform Wares has been designing and producing timepieces based around a philosophy firmly rooted in contemporary British design and engineering. In anticipation for the holidays we have restocked on a number of styles from their coveted wristwatch series as well as introduced their new 104 model to the store. All watches ship for free within Canada and the USA.
