Here we go gents THE WEEKEND!
+ DREAM OF CALIFORNICATION
3.1 Philip Lim takes us on cool overdose for Spring 2012. Philip Lim offers a pretty current collection, all of which are done in light strides and are heavily inspired by California, possibly, Spring 2012's most referenced state of America: acid-washed fabrics, denim pieces to wear 'till they tear (literally), windbreakers, shorts and lots more of those breezy items a California kid puts on his back. Check out the video and visualize your Spring next year with 3.1 Philip Lim.
+ A VAULT ON SAIL
|VAULT magazine's 2nd issue|
Another Philippine publication that's pretty much doing it right, ABS-CBN's VAULT magazine gives local newsstands a refreshing break. Zero blurbs on its actual cover, a properly-spaced layout, its title obviously as prominent as the cover's subject, VAULT truly captures the essence of luxury: quiet, subtle but inspiring and of premium quality. For their second issue, they're featuring a yacht on its way towards the city and though I'm far from knowledgeable of yachts and their specs, this tiny magazine caught my attention from a sea of usual celebrities and models on covers. Grab yourselves a copy and please, keep faith in this one...
+ CARTOONY COGNAC
|KAWS + Hennessy V.S. Cognac Limited Edition Bottles @ Swipelife|
What do you get when famous labels and names head on for a collission/collaboration that celebrates art and drinking? You get this awesome, limited edition bottle of cognac from Hennessy designed by graffiti icon KAWS. Featuring KAWS' signature cartoon-style renderings on the classic Hennessy bottle, these limited editions will come with their very own number...420,000 of them. The odd combination makes for a cool, humorous design, the main reason why it actually works. Who knew something so serious such as cognac could get this cartoonish?
+ THE HANDSOME BOOKIE
|Mob 2B Bookcase @Selectism|
I love how Selectism's writer describes this bookcase from MOB. It is sexy, and even if it sounds sleezy, you couldn't deny the fact that this handsome bookcase could turn a short attention-spanned anybody into a self-confessed bookie. The colors pop but are far from annoying, the slanted slabs of wood/metal provide such a neat touch to the whole case and everything about this bookcase just makes eBooks and iPad versions of magazines a pathetic alternative.
