Dior by Demarchelier

No, the famed photographer isn’t taking on the what seems to be fast becoming the least wanted job in the industry. Instead Patrick Demarchelier’s latest photo book is a tremendous photo essay of Dior’s Couture story to date. Spanning the house’s entire couture history, the book will encompass designs from Christian Dior himself, the work of Yves Saint Laurent and the now controversial yet undeniably…

What to do with an empty candle jar

You know how to make a seat from your old magazines, but there’s also that other niggly problem: what to do when a candle burns right to the end. A candle worth having in your home is often one that comes in a little jar that’s as nice to look at as the candle is to smell. Diptyque candles are one brand that you’ll find…

Inside Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment

A fashion house that doesn’t need an introduction, neither does it require a background check. Its six characters are ample to prove the brand’s credibility. It might also make a woman weak in her knees, but that’s another story. Chanel: an embodiment of glamour, French sophistication, poise and a wardrobe’s pride. And it all started on 31 Rue Cambon in Paris – Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s…

Blackbird mending kit, impractical practicality

The Blackbird Men’s mending kit won’t win any award for practicality. It’s not exactly travel friendly and won’t fit easily into your overnight bag, nor can its glass container be trusted to the misshandling your luggage will undoubtedly suffer at an airport. For at-home use though, the kit will serve double duty as a usable piece of decoration. Contained inside you’ll find a selection of…

Bali is definitely a place surrounded with a magical emanation of spiritual powers; the place under the spell of natural beauty where spirit, mind and body become one with the flux of inspirations. With all those attributes of Bali there is no wonder that such artistic minds like Donna Karan find the source of her artistic muse in the Urban Zen Collection. Fascinated with the…

The Shoes Appreciation Society

In the market for a print for your house or apartment? Then this print we came across might be right for you. Decidedly minimalist, but not without classic lines, it takes in all the shoes we covet (Alexander McQueen’s lobster claw) along with all the styles that aren’t currently but are likely to soon find their way back into fashion.

Eggnog eggs: a luxury gift-making project

Sometimes the best gifts are the ones we make ourselves. The ones we pour a little time and effort and love into, the ones that are totally unique. If you have a little time, patience, and a steady hand then might we suggest these as a luxurious Christmas gift project: eggnog eggs. Formed from white chocolate and painted with edible gold dust, then injected with…

A wordy gift

We already have two versions of scrabble at home – the traditional foldout version and a the much more appropriately up to date iPad edition. This new set, dubbed the “Vintage Edition, is something completely out of either league. It is a re-imagining of what the game should’ve been – the case is beautifully crafted from hardwood with metal accenting, the game board itself features…
