A few days ago, you saw here, firsthand, the first images of the concept Friend-ME, and now here are the first official pictures of this beautiful car. This four passenger sedan is the result of the collaboration between Nissan Design China (NDC) and Nissan Global Design Center (NGDC).
The target audience of this sedan is well defined, and it’s the “Bālínghòu”. The term “Bālínghòu” is used to describe the 250 million Chinese who were born in the 80s, and Nissan aims to reach them, in particular, the male audience in their twenties.
Nothing was revealed about the engine that powers this concept, but we do know that the center console extends to the rear seats and allows the passengers in them to see the same information as the driver, but if they want, they can use their specific touchscreen for whatever they want.
Thanks to Nissan team for the news.
Rad Hourani’s unisex ultra-modern design marks a New Age for Haute Couture
“I STARTED IMAGINING CLOTHES THE SAME WAY I STARTED CREATING IMAGES: WITH A SENSE OF CURIOSITY AND INNOCENCE DRIVEN BY MY NO-BACKGROUND BACKGROUND. NO SCHOOL. NO TEACHERS. NO TELLY. NO BOUNDARIES. NO FORMATTING. I LIKE THE IDEA OF A WORLD THAT WE COULD LIVE AND SHAPE BY OURSELVES, ONLY BY OBSERVING. EACH OUR OWN. MY CLOTHES HAVE ERUPTED FROM THIS WORLD OF MINE. THEY ARE ASEXUAL, ASEASONAL, THEY COME FROM NO PLACE, NO TIME, NO TRADITION, YET THEY COULD BE HOME ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. THEY EXUDE A SENSE OF DISCREET CHIC, THE ESSENCE OF TIMELESS STYLE, DRAWN ON A MONOCHROMATIC AND GRAPHICAL CANVAS. PALETTE OF BLACKS AND SHADES OF TIMELESS COLORS. SOPHISTICATED UNISEX MODERN CLASSICS FOR ANTI-CONFORMIST INDIVIDUALS.” – Rad Hourani
Rad Hourani reinvents fashion by transcending its conventions, creating a unisex luxury that is changing women’s and men’s wardrobes since he launched his namesake label in 2007 in Paris. Like all truly great visionnaires, Hourani not only depicts fashion, he defines it, and gives it cultural resonance. Gender-agnosticism is the driving conceptual direction in Rad Hourani’s work, and growing up and living in such different parts of the world has certainly contributed to Hourani’s rather holistic design approach: self-tought and driven by a passion for modernity, Hourani creates a luxurious yet affordable lifestyle that has rid itself of any conventional restrictions : no gender, no season, no rules, epitomising the values of freedom and unisex elegance.

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.
