She’s a Keepa
With so many social media stars turning fashion designer it’s hard to filter the good from the bad. Dubai-based Mariam Yehia caught our attention for all the right reasons.
Sky’s the Limit
Ole Scheeren’s MahaNakhon is now Bangkok’s tallest skyscraper. CNN Style producer Stephy Chung interviews the German architect inside his ‘unfinished’ skyscraper, a pixelated 77-story building slated to open later this year
Turkey’s Sancaklar Mosque sheds architectural clichés. The sleek, minimal house of Islamic worship featuring cast concrete walls and a cave-like prayer hall almost disappears into the landscape, eschewing the flourishes of traditional mosques to redefine the religious gathering place we thought we knew so well.
Return to Form
As one of the fashion world’s most respected creative geniuses, John Galliano’s fall from grace sent shockwaves through the industry. Many wondered whether he could ever rise again. But he has.
It’s unlikely you’ve ever stood at the side of a road and watched in awe as a missile travelling at over 300 km/h hurtles towards you at ground level. But if you want to know what it feels like, head to the Isle of Man, stand at Bray Hill and witness the jaw-dropping spectacle of the annual Tourist Trophy motorcycle races.
Life’s a Beach
If you’re looking for the archetypal tropical escape, the Seychelles, the Maldives or even Bodrum might do the trick. But if paradise found is what you’re after, might we suggest Thanda. Situated on Shungi Mbili, a tiny private island off the east coast of Tanzania, this getaway proves there is heavenliness in taking it slow.
Richard Mille's Chantilly Concours
This Concours d’Elegance features rare cars on an idyllic French estate September 3-4, 2016.
In the Hot Seat
For the past 60 years, Vitra has worked with some of the world’s best designers to create groundbreaking, iconic furniture that always moves with the times. With a new gabled brick structure to house their 7,000-plus furniture portfolio, this creative incubator is in better shape than ever.
Continuing in a rarefied lineage of cars that offer blistering speeds and astonishing usability, the new Audi R8 V10 Plus is one of those rare supercars that the right-side of your brain will want you to get, while your left-side actually rationalises the purchase.
Jet Set Go
A renaissance is underway at Gucci as Creative Director Alessandro Michele delves into the past to bring his whimsical vision to life. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new campaign for pre-fall 2016, we discover a cast of curious and carefree characters who navigate in a world of books, vintage carpets and exotic plants, looking to reconcile the past with the future.
