Ryan Willms Selects
In a new, on-going series where we ask friends of Neighbour to choose their favourite pieces this season, we are pleased to present selections by Ryan Willms, Inventory Magazine's editor-in-chief.
The Vancouver-based creative known for founding Inventory Magazine, and more recently for his new role as marketing director of Stussy, is often busy and on the move. Despite a demanding schedule, Ryan always seems to make time to visit the shop and take a thoughtful look through our latest deliveries. These are five of his favourite pieces.
1) Gosha Rubchinskiy Flannel Half Pullover
"Gosha’s Fall-Winter ’15 collection was probably his best yet, making some serious strides with his mid-weight and outerwear pieces. This pullover has a cool silhouette and I like the oversized collar."
2) Comme des Garcons Classic Wallet
"The wallet collection from CDG is always good, and I’ve been leaning towards getting a small clutch sized option for myself, and this one is just androgynous enough."
"Neighour’s in-house products are always classic, understated and easy pieces to mix in. The Shetland wool sweater is probably my favourite, especially in Winter White."
4) John Pawson’s A Visual Inventory
Pawson is an incredible talent, and his tastes and aesthetic perspective go well-beyond the interiors he designs. From graphic design to photography, he can do little wrong and this book is a fine example of how even the most casual observations can be packaged in a beautiful way.
"It’s surprisingly hard to find the perfect black jeans. The right fabric, the right cut and the right shade of black—maybe these are them?"
