Recent weeks have shed light on a seemingly widly spread tax fraud among our politician elite. Although I’m sure some of them are stupid enough to wire money online to off-shore tax heavens, I myself really like the idea of a physical cash deposit/transfer using a good old fashion crocodile briefcase (or trunk if you got lots of cash…). To help some of you with the crucial choice of the crocodile bag, here is a selection of our favourite options.
First thing first, we got to clear a very common mistake : there is a frequent confusion between crocodile and alligator skin. Basically, the former can be used as an overarching term, as the family of crocodiles encompasses both true crocodiles and alligators, as well as some other species. Alligator arguably yields a leather that is of superior quality. What both crocodile and alligator leather have in common though is the long and complex process of tanning, finishing and sewing the skins. The resulting product is extremely durable, making a crocodile bag an accessory that is well worth investing in and that can last years, decades and even generations.
On a brief stop in London last week, I took the time to sit at Busaba Eathai like I do everytime I go to London. And again, I simply loved it. The rather dark, woody, candled restaurant near Berkeley Square is just what you need from a good Thai restaurant. And then the food itself is super good. As usual I took a very spicy curry duck with sticky rice while my homie took some sort of wok with chicken. Tasty to the eye ! So if you finf yourself in London, I advise you to try the place out !!

Evolved from the piano keyboard, the Seaboard by WeAreRolly is a new musical instrument which bridges the gap between acoustic and digital music by putting the control of pitch, volume and timbre right at your fingertips. Actually a limited edition of 88 GRANDs will be available for pre-order worldwide starting in April 2013. In recognition of its provenance, each will be named after a particular note on the piano keyboard, from A0 to C8. Interested, click here!
The Acne Cissetta Sea are low ankle boots in bold two tone seafoam green and black. They combine a 50′s inspired style with a graphic platform in calf nubuck. Besides being truly sexy and showing ankles, they compliment perfectly a pair of slim jeans or spice up an office outfit. Definitely a nice way to close that cute target of yours.
Danish label Soulland created quite a buzz with their recent Babar-print capsule collection. I went to enquire about the brand and I discovered plenty of more discrete garments including this ‘Bourgeoisie‘ navy sweatshirt. A great alternative to the BWGH sweaters that you see all over the place now ! Link to the shop.
