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!

aquabotix-hydroview-sport-remote-underwater-hd-video-camera-coverHydroView is a remote operated underwater vehicle with a high definition video camera and LED lights that employs motion control technology. Pretty awesome (unaffordable – see here) gadget I guess, but I must say I’d rather dive in with the liquid image diving mask to explore underwater relics and fish!

Textured-satin blouse by ChloéBlouse has never been that sexy and elegant! Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller describes her muse for spring as “a girl more sensual than before.” This fluid textured-satin top is a mix of the designer’s signature tomboy aesthetic and classic feminine detailing - black silk trims and a semi-sheer finish. A real masterpiece (at 1,250€) to me!
