It has arrived, the website that modern day man has been waiting for. This beautifully styled website has an array of items to die for along with well thought out style suggestions that makes Mr Porter a very personal and interesting guide for the male of today.
My favourite section is the "Essential 32 items a man should own"
Girls this not for you. But feel free to buy for him.
Anthropologie's wedding shop BHLDN (pronounced beholden) launched on Valentine's day, and it is GOOD!
Aside from shopping their assortment of beautiful dresses, shoes and accessories, you can browse inspirational wedding portraits from decades past, determine your bridal style, create mood boards and more.
This shop is part of a chain of family-run bakeries called 'Elektra' located in Edessa, Greece. Studioprototype had the opportunity to redefine the look of its shops with this pilot project. The shop is small covering only thirty-five square metres and occupies a strategic corner plot on the main pedestrian high street.
Light and luminosity flood the interior of the bakery accentuating the food items on display like gold. Exquisite materials such as Carrara marble, wood and brass serve as the backdrop for all food products instilling the rustic and artisan aspect of making bread. A sense of craftsmanship is imbued with the exterior of the shop being entirely clad in cedar like a well tailored suit. Punctuating the cedar cladding on the long facade, a black powder coated steel window box projects outwards beyond the ‘crust’ of the shop to serve as a seating area and bar for customers inside and outside the shop.
Refusing to be outdone by its Upper East Side setting, The Surrey is grand and gracious, with a restaurant, bar and spa to rival the city’s finest. This boutique hotel has lashings of glamour from top (the 17th-floor roof garden) to toe (sumptuous sink-into paisley carpets).
Dress code:Chanel and Hermes or clever imitations.
This is a cool new website of a New York Based design company that has created a live website of their office. It uses 3D Floor patterns that act as navigation tools to guide you through the site. Great way to market your company....Very Clever.
Photographer Frédéric Chaubin reveals 90 buildings sited in fourteen former Soviet Republics which express what he considers to be the fourth age of Soviet architecture. His poetic pictures reveal an unexpected rebirth of imagination, an unknown burgeoning that took place from 1970 until 1990. Contrary to the 1920s and 1950s, no “school” or main trend emerges here. These buildings represent a chaotic impulse brought about by a decaying system. Their diversity announced the end of the Soviet Union.
