THE FIRST GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI DESIGN CAPSULE CLOTHING COLLECTION HAS ARRIVED!

Εικόνα
For the first time Giuseppe Zanotti introduces a micro-capsule collection with unique, exclusive garments for a line that goes beyond definition. Pants and jackets create a unisex and distinct look, perfect for any season. Evening tracksuits add to the urban chic vibe of the sneakers and backpacks in the Zanotti Homme collection.

This sneak peek embodies the demands—and the vibes—rolling in from the new hip-hop music designers and fashion deejays. It is fueled by the new global generation that is constantly evolving and shifting towards new forms of luxurious street chic.

The collection has Giuseppe Zanotti's distinctive style in its DNA, which is demonstrated in the leather quality, jewel accents, and gold zippers.

The first two pieces of this collection are already available for pre-order at the Milan and Paris flagship stores. The entire capsule collection will soon be available for purchase online and fifty stores around the world have already been selected for the launch.

NOW YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE YOUR JIMMY CHOOS!

Εικόνα
What’s better than a pair of luxe high heels? How about having your initials on the soles? Because that's happening. A few days ago, Jimmy Choo announced that customers will be able to call the shots: from the style, to the heel height, to the material, to even monogramming gold-plated initials on the sole of the shoe. The entire design process is now totally in our hands. “Women have always had a special relationship with shoes," said Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi. "It starts with the fairytale of the shoe in stories such as Cinderella and stays with us throughout our lives.” Seeing as Cinderella’s shoes came courtesy of a fairy godmother, those joints were most definitely custom made. Now, thankfully, you no longer need a magic wand, only a mouse. Enjoy!

DON'T YOU WISH YOU'D WORN THAT? BEJEWELLED

Εικόνα
Practise your hauteur in this extreme bejewelled mood. Allow anyone to get too close and you will make enemies-because you are a snag menace in these encrusted gowns. You could tearba a delicate chiffon, rough up a smooth sil crepe, cause havoc to a man's suit. So stay aloof, cultivate a force field, keep your distance. Or you will become the menace-the kind of woman who ruins a sister's dress by mistake on purpose. Which is where these modern, moody, jewelled frocks become a suit of armour unwittigly architected to protect you from a vengeful elbow. These aren't girlie Barbie sparkles. These are progressive embellishments. The cuts are asymmetrical and jolie laide. The lengths can be calfy and ankle-y- and awkward. The shades are challenging yellows and slightly rancid pastels. Leave the pretty twinkles to the amateurs. This season's jewelled pieces are defiant. And they are also a walking gym-damn heavy.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE...BUCKY, VANLLA ICE'S KANGAROO!

Εικόνα
Sure, Ice dated Madonna, but that's nothing, baby. I hooked up with a 300-pound pot-bellied pig. Might seem like an old coupling but we really loved hanging out together. And i got a kick out of humping her. What? She never complained. But Ice put a stop to it anyway-he said she was too smelly to keep. I am not sure i'll ever forgive him. Poncho the goat is my best pal nowadays. He's supercool.Once he even managed to headbutt the latch on the gate to Ice's backyard and we escaped for a few weeks. It was crazy. Until Ice saw us on Channel 12 News and demanded we get home pronto. Actually, I did miss Ice. I have lived with him in South Florida since I was only a few weeks old and now I am 13 and five feet tall. My digs are awesome too-a kangaroo mansion where I hop around and play with a football for hours on end. Yeah, I am nimble. No, i'm not good at boxing. Never have been. Though i would love one of those silvery, silky dressing gowns. They are right up my street…

PURIST VS HEDONIST

Εικόνα
PURIST
FX MAYR & MORE, DELLACH, AUSTRIA
True, with its pine-panelled bedrooms and wonky pool murals, the Mayr can't be described as stylish. But as you dutifully chew, chew, chew your food in the restaurant overlooking misty Lake Worthersee, you will know it is the real deal. Doctors follow the principles of its 19th century founder, Dr FX Mayr: that good health relies on efficient digestion. It is simple but utterly effective. The week long Basic Health Cure Package (consultation, kinesiology test, abdominal treatment, detox wraps) sends you home thin, happy and full of beans.









HEDONIST
CLARINS L'ART DU TOUCHER AT LE ROYAL MONCEAU, PARIS
After lolling in the hotel's cool Philippe Starck-designed rooms, stuffing yourself silly with Pierre Herme macaroons, why not head to the Clarins spa-all diaphanous drapes and the longest pool in Paris, reflected in ornate mirrors-for the L'Art du Toucher tratment. Not only are 90 minutes of full body kneading a glorious pick- me- up, …

RESTAURANT PICK!

CHILTERN FIREHOUSE
MODERN AMERICAN
London's burning. Not literally, obviously-no one wants to return to the bad old days of 1666-but at Chiltern Firehouse, cool-cat hotelier Andre Balazs's new venture. In its restaurant's first two months, the impossibility of getting a reservation was matched only by the lack of coherent information on its website. Well, at least it gave you the adress.
 Go through the gate, past the doorman and through the enchanted garden-which is going to be heaven on summer nights-and a Brazilian Asthon Kutcher-lookalike greeter laconically opens the door. Inside, an army of jacketed managers and staff is racing around. 'It's all flames and beards here,' says manager David, ex-Scott's, nodding towards the openkitchen as he seats us. And yes, there are flames leaping, and lots of bearded cooks, and headchef Nuno Mendes-lured from his Shoreditch hidey-hole Viajante by Mr Balazs-is sweet and smiling at the stove despite the madness and mayhe…

WHERE TO GO...FOR AN EARLY SUMMER JAUNT!

Εικόνα
1. VILLA SAN MICHELE-FLORENCE




The decadence on offer in this Rennaissance beauty would have its former residents shaking in their habits, but its days as a monastery are long gone. Sprawling in the Florentine hills, Villa San Michele is surrounded by lawns and geranium-filled terraces the topmost of which has apool with stonking views over the city. Rooms are very elegant, very Italian-all creams and golds, antiquesoriginal frescoes, windows sporting romantically creaky wooden shutters. So let's just recap. High terraces? Check. Irreplaceable furniture? Double check. Not one for the sprogs, then? Well, actually it is. There is a brilliant kids'club, Smile, in the old chappel, where bambini learn to make pizza with the utterly charming Attilio-or they can romp around the hotel's secret gardens, or go on treasure hunts in the city's churches. Even the monks would have approved. (probably).

HERE'S LOOKING AT...SAM MCKNIGHT!

Εικόνα
Do you want to know why Sam McKnight is the most succesful hair stylist in the world? It is not down to his sharp scissor skills or his way with wigs. It's his voice-deep and rumbling and sultry, with the softest of Scottish lilts.Which is exactly what you want to listen to when you are having your hair fussed over for three hours. Or when you are gettng a steak attached to your head (as he did for Lady Gaga to top off that meat dress). 'We had to shove it on with kirby grips' says Sam, 58. 'It was like a Damien Hirst installation-flies everywhere.' After 37 years in the business, not much shocks him. He's worked on more than Vogue covers, done Kate Moss's hair 'thousands of times' (including for her wedding' and travelled as Diana, Princess of Wales's personal hair stylist for seven years-he was the one who persuaded her to slick back her short crop. Downtime is spent pottering around his flourishing north London garden, where he grows tuli…
