Inflorescence Editorial for Keepsake


Australian label Keepsake have a knack for frocks that are feminine without being too girly. A frill here, a flounce there, a digital print or a uniquely cut neckline… it’s the little unexpected twists that give even the simplest pieces a lust-worthy edge.

The brand’s “Inflorescence” collection couldn’t be better represented than it is with this editorial. It involves beds of luscious fresh flowers, after all. Wouldn’t we all love to immerse ourselves, all silk dresses and bare skin, in one of those?

The 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda Hit The Web

The first Lagonda since the William Towns-designed wedge of the 1970s and ‘80s is currently undergoing final testing in the extreme heat of Oman, ahead of a market launch next year.

But Aston Martin isn’t launching a standalone Lagonda brand as it had hoped to only a few years ago; instead, the British automaker is using the Lagonda name and badge exclusively for a new sedan that will only be offered to customers in the Middle East.

New images of the sedan have just been released by Aston Martin, which show the exterior in great detail but keeps the interior hidden.

The Lagonda is based on the bones of Aston Martin’s Rapide and shares that model’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine, although power may be uprated beyond the 552-horsepower rating of the 2015 Rapide S. Drive is to the rear wheels only, via an eight-speed automatic.

The body is made almost entirely of carbon fiber, while underneath sits a chassis that’s mostly extruded aluminum. The new Aston Martin Lagonda will be largely built by hand, by a team of craft builders at Aston Martin’s main facility in Gaydon, England—in the same building previously used for the One-77 hypercar’s construction, in fact.

There’s no word on pricing yet but Aston Martin says the Lagonda’s positioning “will be commensurate with the car’s exclusivity, quality and luxurious nature.” Considering the car will be available via invite only, it’s likely the final price tag will be exceeded only by the One-77’s sticker.

Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2015.

About James: Born in Petaluma, CA – James grew up riding with some of downhill’s most influential skaters. For years, he’s been showing that there’s no road that can’t be conquered. He has perfected his abilities to skate anything at speed, while building the discipline required to keep calm when the consequences are high. James is no stranger to the racecourse and podium, yet he’s most at home on the hills surrounding his family cabin in the Western Sierras, where this video was filmed.

About the New Model: The new James Kelly Pro Model is the result of years of skating at speed. More hours than can be counted went into the design, refinement, and road testing. The shape reflects the rider, the lines he rides, and serious nature of what he does. The shape has a long wide platform, multiple wheelbase options, and the right amount of rocker. It provides versatility and confidence when approaching speed. Dimensions: length 38.50” – width: 9.75” – wheelbase: 27.00”-30.00”.
