Kate Moss Is The New Mango Spring 2012 Campaign Model.


Kate Moss has been revealed as the face of Mango’s Spring 2012 campaign, appearing in print and television campaigns captured by Terry Richardson.  While the Barcelona-based retailer had opted for actresses including Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz to front collections in recent years, Moss’s appointment marks a move further into the realm of high fashion for the brand.  Kate Moss attended a photocall January 24 at Mango’s London flagship store in Oxford Street ahead of the collection launch.

A television commercial starring Moss called ‘Spy Game’ will also go live across 40 countries including the UK, France and Germany early March.  The fashionista’s previous high street collaborations include modeling and designing her own fashion lines for British retailer Topshop.  “Kate Moss was chosen as the image of Mango because she is a world-famous fashion icon, making her one of the most sought-after models in the fashion world.”

Lil Wayne ft. Bruno Mars – Mirror Mirror Teaser.


Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” was without a doubt a very interesting record.  Weather you purchased the extended CD, downloaded the original, or just heard most of the tracks on the radio, everyone has their favorites.  The track Mirror featuring Bruno Mars was quite a heartfelt entry onto the album, and with the video dropping soon, its no surprise that the label released a teaser.  Check the method below.

Behind The Scenes: Busta Rhymes ft. Chris Brown – Why Stop Now.


Bussa Buss is very well known for his quick-spitting abilities, but the track “Why Stop Now” (which you can listen to above) is a knock out of the park for the lyrical dynamo.  But the video, currently in post-production might just be one for the ages.  Check the behind the scenes footage below.

The World’s Most Expensive T-Shirt.


A United Kingdom-based company called Superlative Luxury has created an eco-friendly t-shirt priced at $400,000.  The t-shirt is made of 100% organic cotton and the manufacturing process uses only renewable energy, such as wind and solar, reducing the carbon footprint by 90%.  The t-shirt features a spherical pattern created from 16 one-carat diamonds; half of which are white diamonds and the other half are enhanced rare black diamonds.  Due to the company’s preference for greener manufacturing, it takes them four weeks to make a shirt.  The t-shirts come with a one-year warranty.

This Is How The Rich Go Camping.


In a heavily wooded country like Sweden, it comes as no surprise when one comes across a hotel deep in the forest. However, the Treehotel is something beyond the ordinary. Located in Harads, a village in the northern part of the country with only 600 inhabitants, the hotel has made the forested region a touristic attraction.  Designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects such as Martin Videgård and Bolle Tham as well as Mårten & Gustav Cyrén, the hotel promises to reconnect its guests with nature. The hotel, which first opened in July 2010, consists of five tree-rooms and the owners Britta and Kent Lindvall, expect to build a total of 24 tree-rooms by the end of 2012.  All of the rooms harmoniously blend into the natural environment with the aim of making a minimal ecological footprint. Each room is located four to six meters above the ground and they all share the magnificent views of the surrounding natural environment. The rooms themselves vary in size from 15-30m2.

The Mirrorcube includes a queen size bed designed by Martin Videgård and Bolle Tham and blends into the forest surroundings due to the mirrored walls, which reflect the surroundings. Guests can enter the room through the 12-meter long bridge. The Cabin designed by Mårten & Gustav Cyrén features a double bed that accommodates up to two people with a terrace that overlooks the Lule river valley. A long horizontal bridge takes  the guests to the room and its structure will permit for additional bridges to be built once more rooms are constructed. The Bird’s nest room is a four-bed room with the look of a real bird nest. Designed by Inredningsgruppen, guests can access the room via an electric ladder that extends from beneath. The room offers the opportunity for guests to experience life as bird surrounded by the trees. Once the Bird nest was completed the idea to create a room that is “out of place”, was born and thus Inredningsgruppen designed the UFO, a room casted in durable composite materials which is also the biggest room that the Treehotel has. Finally, The Blue Cone has the distinct character of a traditional wooden house painted in red and accommodates up to four people.

The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Boom.


More than half of clients who specified a Rolls-Royce Ghost in 2011 turned to bespoke personalization.  The service, which includes anything from the application of unique paint colours, coach lines and tread plates to whole vehicle designs featuring champagne sets, humidors and picnic cabinets, helped drive Rolls-Royce to record sales last year.  In total, 56% of Ghost and Ghost Extended Wheelbase models sold around the world featured bespoke design in 2011.  The move to highly personalized Rolls-Royce Ghost models follows an increase in sales of bespoke Phantom family cars last year.

More than eight in every ten Rolls-Royce Phantom models passed through the hands of the team’s designers and skilled craftspeople, before being delivered to a client.  In August 2011 Rolls-Royce announced an expansion of its bespoke operation to meet growing demand, doubling the number of bespoke experts working at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood by the end of the year.  The company is also about to expand its manufacturing facility, partly due to the increase in demand for bespoke cars. Work will begin next month.
