Fashion designer, entrepreneur, artist, architect, — Virgil Abloh is a true Renaissance Man. His work was recently honored in an exhibit at the MCA Chicago and to coincide with its release, museum curator Michael Darling launched a special edition book. Created in collaboration with Abloh himself, Virgil Abloh is essentially three books in one, featuring a catalogue section, an index, and an archive with over 1,800 unseen images taken from the artist's personal collection. The hardcover book comes in a cloth slipcover with "Personal Copy" silkscreened on the book's fore edge and includes a measuring tape ribbon marker and a flexi disc with a recording of Virgil Abloh discussing his inspirations.
President Woodrow Wilson signed The Rocky Mountain National Park Act in 1915, establishing the park boundaries and protecting the area for future generations. This U.S. Geological Survey topographic map was created the same year, showing the region with a digitally-rendered 3-dimensional elevation. Printed on Lustre photographic paper, each high-quality chromogenic print uses traditional color photography development that combines 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a vibrant, textured 2D image that pops off the page.

Most trail running shoes make themselves known immediately, with loud colors and/or odd designs. New Balance's X-Racers blend off-road performance with looks that blend into more casual settings. The uppers are constructed from a blend of rugged synthetic and ripstop materials, while the outsole is lugged for maximum traction in all conditions. They're finished with an Abzorb midsole offering responsive cushioning and classic jogger silhouette that looks great with everything from trail pants to jeans.
Knitted by hand in upstate New York and finished in Brooklyn, these fingerless gloves offer a level of craftsmanship and utility we've been searching for. The Ragg wool blend provides moisture-wicking properties while keeping hands warm, and a bit of nylon weaved in with the wool provides durability. Cuff hems are serged with an elastic thread to help retain cuff shape. A 2.5-ounce deerskin palm patch, sewn on with a century-old Singer chain-stitch machine, offers just enough grip for daily usage. The Upstate Stock label is tacked on lightly and can either be removed or kept on. And of course the fingerless gloves are perfect for our device-obsessed world.
