James Franco stops by the studio of fashion photographer Terry Richardson for June 2013 cover story of American GQ.
“When I first read the script [for This Is The End], the James Franco character was—I guess the only way to describe it is he was a lot douchier than the version that we came up with. I was the materialistic guy. They were really playing up the Gucci-modeling aspect of my life.” – JF

Casa Lapo is a project realised by talented French architect Florent Lasaulnier, inspired by Lapo Elkann, the hire of the Fiat founders and known for his extravagant style, involving a lot of denim and camouflage. Of his project, he says:
“The Casa Lapo project is a dream come true. A project appeared to me while reading an interview of Lapo Elkann in The New York Times. I had never heard of Lapo Elkann at the time but I always had a great love for Italy and particularly Turin, even if I was never able to explain why, besides being the capital of Baroque and Carlo Mollino’s home, as well as headquarters of the Fiat empire, of national and international fame.”
This amazing home is an awesome big structure overlooking a lake covered in a camouflage print, that’s for sure. The structure of the house supports the whole building, with an open internal space that offers infinite spatial options. And the walls of the structure contain all of the electrical, sound, lighting and ventilation systems, keeping them neatly tucked away out of sight. Read the new york times interview that set the project in motion here.
These garments made from interlocking foam pieces by Croatian designer Matija Čop reference construction techniques and shapes found in gothic architecture.
A series of tabs and slots are lasercut from rectangular sections of soft, water- and UV-resistant foam, which link together without the use of stitches or glue.
The layouts of these sections are taken from the plans of cathedrals such as St. Jacob’s in Šibenik, Croatia.
Different sized elements can be assembled to create sculptural shapes that reference the arches and domes of gothic buildings, then taken apart and rearranged.
“Object 12-1 can be deconstructed and reconstructed in a completely different shape whenever one wishes,” says Čop
One dress curves out from the hips, away from the body, then back past the head like the arc of a ceiling vault. The circular top of a hat resembles a rose window.
Another item has sleeves that are narrow around the wrist then expand toward the body, reaching from shoulder to hip and creating triangular shapes that look like turrets.
Garments in shades of grey or bright blue can be worn inside-out to expose the irregular surfaces of connecting tabs.
“The qualities of the material make both sides soft and easily adjustable to the body,” Čop says.
Čop graduated from the University in Zagreb’s Faculty of Textile Design with a degree in fashion design and last year designed the costumes for Croatian film Šegrt Hlapić.

When the Urus was first introduced it was said it wouldn’t be produced, because Volkswagen, which is the owner of Lamborghini, already builds the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg and soon will manufacture the Bentley EXP 9 F and the Audi Q8. After a while, things changed when a few patents appeared on the web, but only now we know for a fact that this model will see the daylight.
During the presentation of the Lamborghini Egoista, Harry Metcalfe, talked with someone from the Sant’ Agata company that confirmed the Urus will enter production in 2017. It should share its platform with the next-generation Audi Q7 and the Bentley EXP 9 F. This won’t be the first time the Italian company produces a SUV. They made the LM002 from 1986 to 1993, and only 328 were fabricated. Thanks to Harry Metcalfe and automonthly for the news.
