We all have a secret passion for architecture: some of us are into historical buildings and monuments, while the rest remains astounded in front of cutting-edge futuristic designs. Architecture is a knowledge you may want to continually improve with travels and reading books such as 100 Contemporary Architects by Taschen. The good thing about this Taschen book is that it basically gathers the top of the crop of 20th century best architects and their main breathtaking designs. To my opinion, that’s the kind of book you may want to have on your coffee table to enlighten your guests about architecture!

For all those who don’t like the much hyped singer/songwriter King Krule, I suggest you still listen to this groovy, stony, smoky rap he released in the form of a mixtape under the name Edgar the Beatmaker.

christmas-selection-hype-means-everythingI’ve decided I wouldn’t spend my next few week-ends running across Paris to find the perfect Christmas gifts, should it be for me or for my beloved ones. Instead, I would just seat behind my desk at home in my PJ and take advantage of some online resellers’ free shipping policies! I’ve started with Mr Porter, which you shouldn’t be surprised about if you’re a regular of this blog. We dudes don’t have much choice when it comes to online shops for proper menswear. If it weren’t for Mr Porter, I’d be short a few shirts and scarves and ties and shoes in my weekly rotations! Stay tuned for daily “wishlist” items in fashion, design, books, skincare, watches and many more until we reach Christmas day!
