Almost every image from the 1981 Nordstrom spring catalog is straight flames, and this one is no exception. Here we see two beach dudes dressed excellently for a season that can’t make up its mind about the weather. Is it hot out? Is it chilly?
Don’t freak out, though, bro. Handle both weathers at once!
The brand Pintrill, out of Brooklyn, NY, answers the question: What if you took the collectible world of pin culture, and speared it through your phone and into your text messages?
Jordan Roschwalb started Pintrill in April 2014 with his girlfriend Doni Gitlin and homie Andrew Yung. He talked to us on the phone about the communal power of pins and future possibilities for the Oxford English Dictionary.
After speaking with him, we’re even more certain that these pins will get you noticed at a music festival or on the street. And maybe bartered with.
Sound the alarm: New colors of the adidas ‘Tubular’ lifestyle shoe are shop-able. That would be the sensational sneaker that the brand debuted in 2014 and caught on like the flu, and only gets sicker with each new colorway (that black/surf petrol/off white, though?).
Besides being abnormally comfortable (many have elastic at the waist as well as the cuffs), they cut a lean, tapered silhouette that shows off your favorite shoes, without pesky concerns about rolling or hemming your pant leg.

You’ve probably heard the modern, headphone-y pop music of Toronto duo Majid Jordan without knowing it through Drake: they wrote and were featured on Drake’s hit “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” and on “Legend,” he shouts them out, saying their album will drop this year on his label OVO.
Jamie Webster handles the entire visual presence of the group (Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman) as creative director, in between his creative director and partner roles at the Common Good production company and design studio and co-owning the bar Dog & Bear. He took us site by site through the insiders’ tour of Toronto that is the music video for “Forever,” which he directed.
“The idea was to provide their audience with a glimpse of Toronto through Majid Jordan’s eyes. Not the CN Tower or cheesy buskers at Yonge-Dundas Square. It’s not a Toronto tourist video. It’s spaces that are cool or have a significance to us. We see the way the city is depicted and it’s often way off the mark.”
In this series, we talk to artists and designers about their most personal works and the projects that are closest to their hearts.
Nordstrom photographer Barb Penoyar is back with the second installment of her series “In/On White”: portraits of models shot using 100% natural light. We are feeling her new work. See round one here.
Barb works on this project in her free time at our Studio N, in between shooting Complete Looks for our website. Why? Because as a pro photog and photography teacher, she loves the creative challenge posed by shooting with sunlight. Learn more about that here.
And for winter/spring, she’s just really into white.
