Eyewear designer to the rich and famous and Parisian artisan Alain Mikli is no stranger to high fashion, high profile design, but the designer’s SS13 line of women’s sunglasses takes on trend sunglasses to a whole new level. Mikli has been creating innovative and fashion forward eyewear for over 30 years. He rose to fame in the 80s when stars like Elton John began to sport his designs. Today, Mikli’s chic eyewear, which combines quality, style and functionality is worn by everyone from Beyoncé to Bono. It is actually Mikli who designed the iconic ‘shutter shades’ worn by Kanye West in his music video for “Stronger”. His latest collection nails just about every trend of the season. Here are our top picks from the new range and their corresponding trends, plus a less avant-garde alternative.Read More
Sometimes, there is a thrill you can’t describe with words. You won’t come close to figuring out how intense and exciting a MotoGP race is before you live it from the inside. I was fortunate to get full access to the Ducati racing team for the Le Mans MotoGP race a few days ago. Aside from the sheer beauty of the fierce competition that you can see on TV if you wander among the motor channels, there is an original blend of prestige and excitement in a racing team. Watch our exclusive, intrusive photo reportage at the heart of the Ducati racing team after the break!Read More

A wonderful terrasse with view on the Eiffel Tower, a high-ceiling Art Deco dinning room designed by Joseph Dirand (who happens to be the same dude who designed the Chloé store rue Saint-Honoré), black marble, green suede chairs. Everything’s splendid. I haven’t tried Monsieur Bleu yet but I feel like you go there to see and be seen rather than for the food itself. Or maybe I’m mistaken… It’s simply refreshing to see that the Palais de Tokyo has found a new life. Let’s hope this brasserie chic doesn’t disappoint us when we go for a check anytime soon.Read More
The guy is only 17-years-old and released an EP called Novacane late last year. The trap genius offers this promo EP for free for anyone who wants heavy bass. This is really cool music guys. It goes pretty hard. Him being sixteen, his music will probably change a lot in the years to come, but I like the revival of the trap movement with guys like Hucci or TNGHT. You can stream the full EP now down below!
After a long stressful day at work, you feel like hitting something to de-stress (I hope you don’t but that’s the best sentence I found to introduce that post…). The knuckle meat pounder (see above) is your new best friend: tenderizing meat has never been so much fun! Available on TheFancyRead More
