The online platform promises to be a great digital match for the already proven lovely printed publication. Besides being the online counterpart of the publication, the new platform also offers several new exclusive features which significantly broaden the Kinfolk-horizon. read more…

Printed Matter Alphabet Family Journal

Tipped by the good people of OPENHOUSE Magazine we recently found out about the new triennial magazine named Alphabet Family Journal, published in Sydney, Australia. The magazine explores the heart and soul of what it means to make a home together, giving an unfiltered snapshot of modern families, in all its guises. It is a magazine that celebrates  the beauty of the everyday: from the loud chaos, to the quiet times, and all the unscripted moments in-between that merge to form a memory, a home and a family. It is this approach combined with a beautiful aesthetic that sets Alphabet Family Journal apart from a lot of other publications, truly adding something to the printed world. read more…

Music Another Spring Playlist by Michael A. Muller

Time for a new playlist! This time a special one, as we weren’t the ones selecting the music, but our friend Michael A. Muller was kind enough to share his favorites for this time of the year. Michael is based in Austin, Texas and is a photographer who has worked for among others Kinfolk, Cereal and Freunde von Freunden.
His list starts with Memory Loss by The Snow, the new supergroup of Dustin Payseur, Jack Tatum and Andreas Lagerström. Followed by Carnival Ghost by childhood friends John Fredericks and Andy Breihan and their band SACCO. The next song is second single by German lap-pop band The Notwist of their  debut Close to the Glass. Moving from guitar pop to the more electronic sounds of Seattle-based Beat Connection and their Invisible Cities. Next is our favorite track Turn Away of the most recent Beck record Morning Phase. Back to electronics, She Just Like to Fight by Four Tet. After which the lead single of Californian Jazz duo The Mattson 2 and the experimental On Guyot of Wild Nothing’s Empty Estate EP follow. The song by Small Black and featuring Frankie Rose named Real People was inspired by Colton Harris-Moore, a teenager from rural Washington who went on a crime spree. Next up is one of our favorite artists Nils Frahm and his haunting For of the album Juno. More instrumental tunes follow with Mick Turner’s Here’s a Way and Takeshi Nishimoto’s 6/8. The final song is yet another special one: recorded in Nils Frahm’s studio and recently released on the namesake 18-song album, the beautiful Pinô by Norwegian Otto A. Totland. read more…

Fashion Ouur

Ouur is the latest beautiful endeavor by Nathan Williams, brand director and editor in chief of Kinfolk Magazine, and his team. Pronounced just like the word our, the brand is centered around a visual motif of underlines. These underlines represent an effort to collect like-minded elements into a single place. This translates into collections for men and women which are clearly in line with the Kinfolk aesthetic, primarily using textiles such as linen, cotton and wool. Created with a sharp attention to detail, classic silhouettes and a neutral color palette, each item has been made with an emphasis on comfort and utility. The goal Williams has set for the line is that pieces in the collection will be interchangeable, functional and wearable in all seasons, which clearly shows in the newly released lookbook for the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. read more…
