Mr Toledano`s own words: “For me, fashion photography is like writing. Sometimes it`s a short story, sometimes it`s a one-liner. But it`s always more than just hair and make-up.”

Mike&Chris fall 08 collection

Haven`t seen such a meticulous play of texture, detail and vintage pattern as is on display at Mike & Chris!

I`m so sorry nothing of it is available in this part of world!

Looking forward to their spring 09 collection, though.

Rust, dust and rain in your bathroom

The new bathroom concept developed by Mike Meire from Meire und Meire communication/design company for German bathroom fixtures producer Dornbracht is full of unconventional notions. Not only you are invited to step under a shower of rain (literally, as the revolutionary head shower delivers tiny raindrops at the turn of your hand), but you are also invited to enjoy the experience of bathing and personal hygiene surpassing everything seen before. But to make the revolutionary part more obvious, the interior design of this concept bathroom is clad with rusted metal sheets and bold stones.

But, don`t let the visuals fool you – the concept is truly a step forward in exploring the “ritual”. This exploration is a part of NOISES FOR RITUAL ARCHITECTURE “ELEMENTAL”, about which you can see more at www.cultureprojects.com

MAterial used in this bathroom is Corten steel. As it is not susceptible to the effects of weathering and based on its characteristic patina, Corten steel is also used for highlighting effects in architecture and as a material in the artistic field.

The A-list, ultramodern yacht: the Wallypower 118 by Edmiston

Here`s a great idea if you have 17+ mln euros to spend/spare for a nautical beauty. This state of art, luxury super-yacht beats those more advertised yachts by design only. Produced by Edminston and named the 118 WALLYPOWER, this item nears the top of our “luxury-objects-to-dream-of” list. Learn more about the yacht here. Or see other pictures in the rest of this post.

Of gold covered chocolate and more…

Nucleo did excite some “aaahhh” comments at Zona Tortona in Milan with their fascinating booth (part of the Luxury palace project), but more was to come from the wonderfully courteous man in white gloves wondering weather we`re there only for the press kit. “Just the press kit and you don`t want to try our chocolate?” he asked.

“Chocolate! What chocolate?!”

well, it was this chocolate:

We got to try it and to take it home with us in lusciously packed press-kit. But the Nucleo team has more to it than just the palatal pleasures: one discovers much more design-wise, as you may see if you read the rest of the article here
