What a beautiful concept by designer Artem Shykov! A piece of art that high-fidelity audio freaks would buy for the design only! A classic tape player/recorder in a handsome professional design body. Not very useful in a world where iPhones can record hours of talks in the palm of a hand but at least, you get to live like we’re back in the 50s! Read More
La Fonction no. 1 – the inaugural product and manifesto for an emerging catalogue – reinvents the travelling office! Inspired by the ways early photographers protected themselves from the light and guided by their experience of mobility, they designed La Fonction no. 1 – a mobile workstation carrying all your essential tools which folds out to create micro-partitions to enclose the space and create a comfortable and private workstation. Reflecting the rise in nomadism and digital, at a time when the way we view the office is changing radically, La Fonction no. 1 allows you to carry and protect your laptop, as well as offering much more besides.

I promised myself never to mention Maison Kitsuné again. After starting as a hip, expensive Parisian label, Maison Kitsuné decided to raise prices significantly year after year… It doesn’t change the quality and style of their products but makes their whole range absurdly completely out of reach, even for blind spenders like us. That being said, that 2000 dollar coat is fucking badass. It’s made of extremely soft and warm cashmere camel hair with leather linings and other premium stuff. Hip for sure but I’ll pass. Read More
I am a glass enthusiast as much as I am a wine enthusiast. I like to buy “special purpose” glasses in case I might need them later and I actually have several glasses that I’ve bought and never used once! Old fan of Baccarat gobelets and pretty fanatic about everything Thom Browne, I couldn’t not write about this amazing collaboration of limited edition crystal glasses with etched 4 bar stripes that includes a water goblet, a white wine glass, a red wine glass, a long stem champagne coupe and a short stem champagne coupe. I won’t tell you how much it costs. Read More
A reader recently asked for some advice on suitable shirt and tie combinations for business. We know that nowadays, most people aren’t required to even wear a dress shirt to the office. I myself wouldn’t like to have a job that doesn’t require to be suited-up from monday to friday! So if there’s someone out there caring for some dapper, fancy, smart, bold or iconic shirt and tie combinations, here are below some of our own looks!

What else?! Love it!

Every month, the W Hotel (Paris) organizes “Brunch Couture” in collaboration with rising fashion designers such as Melinda Gloss.

Check out the menu and pics we shot with a Samsung Galaxy S4 at the Arola Restaurant (see below).
