Unlike Moore’s traditional safari shirts, this one is a structured jacket.

We take a look at the Rick Owens furniture presented by Salon94 at Art Basel Switzerland. Characteristic of Owens’s “glunge” aesthetic (his own term, short for “glamorous grunge”), the furniture showcases urban-minimalist influences from the likes of Donald Judd, Le Corbusier, and Eileen Gray. These chairs made of giant antlers and petrified wood were first designed by Owens as a personal hobby in 2006, and now, they also conveniently furnish his home in Paris .

The Imaginate project has been in development for two years, which is entirely believable considering this video is so un believable that, short of a Faustian pact or magic lamp involvement, only after years of practice could even a seasoned pro execute these kind of maneuvers. Ladies and gentlemen… Danny MacAskill
La Classe A de troisième génération fut sans nul doute l’une des voitures les plus importantes de l’année 2012. En troquant sa carrosserie de mini-monspace pour celle d’un hatchback compact, la A se transforma en la meilleure Golf depuis bien longtemps. Si cette mutation n’était pas non plus d’un intérêt digne de réveiller un membre du Blenheim Gang en pleine sieste, le son de l’échappement de sa nouvelle déclinaison AMG risque fort de perturber le plus profond des sommeils

Pushing a cycling theme, James Long presented a rather futuristic vision (and we mean Bladerunner rather than 2014) for this latest collection. So, plenty of body hugging tops, all multicoloured digi-stripes layered underneath mesh bombers, backpacks and technical fabrics all over the shop. Over-sized shorts, body-armour quilted sleeved jackets and of course, a selection of top knitwear, one of the British designers finest collections yet.

Christopher Shannon harks back to the era of super clubs and badly designed flyers for his latest collection. Spring Summer 2014 “celebrates the anything-goes era of Liverpool & Manchester clubs like Cream, Garlands and Paradise. Influences are drawn from the experimental, post-rave, pre-high street club clothing, updated for our time.” New Era mesh bucket hats, translucent rubber shorts in fluorescents, superb Liberty fabrics in zip heavy outerwear, Kickers remixed and plenty of that laddish flavour you’d expect from Shannon, so much to enjoy
The Mr Start Spring Summer 2014 collection shown alongside that other Mr, Hare, expands the traditional line up of smart suits and shirts taking in more casual items for off-duty days.

James Andrew, Palm Beach from the Mediterranean and Moroccan inspired homes created by Mizner to the Lily Pulitzer frocked beauties strolling barefoot along Worth Avenue, Palm Beach has always had an element of the opulent boheme…. It is, after all, the tropics, and so why not infuse one’s home and wardrobe with a bit of bohemian exoticism! For the interiors I create for my clients, I always try to capture the essence of a place, and Palm Beach makes for the perfect combination of old world elegance and relaxed tropical beach resort – big, bold, and beautiful statements that compliment a number of different architectural styles are a key factor in creating a super chic Palm Beach style – think: rooms tented in batik fabrics, Moroccan furniture with mother of pearl inlay, and a ravishing riot of color. Contrasting exotic and classical elements, I’m playing the part of the Palm Beach boheme.

The print was illustrated by British artist Stuart Patience which has the same design as the hand-engraved leather case for the candle.
