This is a huge step for hip hop, anytime a brand such as Moncler allows someone from our world — like Pharrell — into theirs..is a big deal. These pieces are crazy as well! The vests are killer.
Seen here are outerwear pieces from the upcoming collection by Moncler, of course designed by renaissance man Pharrell Williams. This latest preview shows off several designs, including a down jacket and down vest, along with three other stylized vest options. All take on a dark color aesthetic, highlighted with a print by Japanese artist Keita Sugiura and fabric made out of Bionic Yarn. Look for these to release during this year’s Fall/Winter season.

Approaching the spring season, Anntian duo Anne Hilken and Christian Kurt up the ante once more, reinterpreting their signature mix of patterns in a light easygoing collection. Balancing oversize looks with expert draping, the range takes on comfort and style in one go. Dressed in a combination of stripes and sponged prints, simple slouchy tees and trousers take a backseat to great jackets and knits. From an organic origin of creativity, Hilken and Kurt once again deliver a range that is both special and unique.
Courtesy of Fashionisto, this brand has a collage feel to it, I like the misdirection it showcases when I’m looking at it. Definately a “neck-breaker” walking down the street [somewhere] There’s suppose to be a story behind each season ; this season’s labeled PHASE, I wonder what that means hmm

A superb rack and library thought by the Korean designer Shawn Soh. The principle: the books all are set out again on the various branches of the tree which was designed entirely out of steel. A concept very successful to discover in the continuation.
Thought this was pretty cool, gave the [book]shelf a more [natural] look haha. Having this in your house/apartment makes you feel that you are wondering in the woods [somewhere] it’d be a great piece of work to have in your household.

Step into the Alfra Vico Luxury Motor Yacht Marino 52, and you’re sure to be floored by its stunningly simple design and interiors. Boasting of modern gadgetry to make sure you kiss high-speeds effortlessly, the yacht is envisioned as ‘motion art’ of the highest echelon. From the cleats to the projectile anchor, to the convertible exterior lounge-sofas/daybeds, to the fully computer-controlled helm station, the Marino 52 screams extravagance! We also discovered that Alfra Vico opted to invent and purpose-build new patent-pending electronic control systems, mechanizations, cleats, and other essential functional elements.
