Ben Lerner new novel 10:04

BEN LERNER'S '10:04'

August 27, 2014

When Ben Lerner produced his first novel Leaving the Atocha Station in 2011, he was already an acclaimed poet with three highly regarded collections of poetry to his name. He published his début, which centered on a young American poet on a fellowship in Madrid, with Coffee House Press and “didn’t think anyone would read it,” he says. Leaving the Atocha Station went on to become one of the most talked-about novels of the year, appearing on several best-books lists. Now Lerner is back with a new novel, 10:04, which again focuses on an American writer trying to finish a creative work. This time, the narrator is a poet who, having earned critical accolades with his first novel from a small press, receives a six-figure advance from a major New York publishing house to write a new one.

After operating out of various skate shops and high-end luxury stores worldwide such as colette, Dover Street Market, and Opening Ceremony for the past year, the Swedish unisex sneaker brand Eytys (pronounced “Eighties”) has opened its very first stand-alone store in its hometown of Stockholm. The new space embodies the confident, fuss-free æsthetic with which the brand has rapidly become synonymous on the strength of its sharp, sleek sneaker silhouettes. “Having a store has been a dream, and the creative process started to take shape in my mind years ago,” says co-owner Max Schiller. “I guess you can compare the obsession with the way teenage girls fantasize about their wedding day.”

“I usually act on instinct,” explains London-based designer Hannah Barr. The Glasgow native, whose pieces often look more like sculptures than more expected articles of apparel, says she came on slow to fashion. “I did look at Vogue from a young age, but then I was more into the models than the clothes!” Barr relates. “I suppose it evolved from there into me wanting to make clothing for these people and move to London.”
