The sun is out in London town and more SS15 lines have just been added to our women’s
categories! We can’t but help but feel that summer is only round the corner…right?!
YMC friends, Jocks and Nerds magazine, last week made one of our new pairs of SS15
shoes their product of the week. They’re from our collaboration with Solovair (sole-of-air),
the first maker of the Dr Martens airway sole. Made in England by hand, using over 20
processes for each shoe. Take at look at the post here.

We’re eager to get down to the Barbican for a look at their newly-opened
exhibition, Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector. Featuring a diverse group of
artists including Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst to name a few. A show with a twist – it
presents key works alongside the personal collections that these creators have amassed
over the years. Curated by Lydia Yee, the collections range from the conventional to the
bizarre – Martin Parr’s Soviet space dog keepsakes is a memorable example. The
collections vary in size and nature, making them even more unique to the indivudual
‘collector’. These groups of skulls, samurai armour, cookie jars and record covers are all
installed in curated spaces which reflect the aesthetic style and habits of each artist who
gathered the objects. The result is a vast and fascinating exhibition that allows the viewer
an insight into the inspirations and influences of some of the most important artists of
An exhibition not to be missed – catch it at the Barbican now, where it’s running until May
