Floating Puzzle Cars | Chris Labrooy

Auto Aerobics sounds slightly better than Floating Puzzle Cars right? Well thats the title of UK based Chris Labrooy’s digital car sculptures. His project feature a host of cars interlinked and manipulated to create a mind puzzle. He gained his inspiration from wintry walks in Brooklyn i believe.

Playful and mesmerising – you still think they are real dont you..

Prints and the pauper

Seriously cool prints at bank balance massaging prices? Where do I sign? Trends come and go, but Cuckoos Nest seem to be staying put and gladly so. Vivid bird prints through to scenic emotive apparel bearing a slight resemblance to something you’d find on the front of an Ian Mckewan novel with a tantalising plot in tow, CNC have been driving their wild exercises of design for a few seasons now, making headway with some of the retailing heavyweights and gaining an enviable following. Not to miss are their raglan sweaters, the plume pocket Murdoch becoming a firm favourite of this writer, whilst the Safari Murdoch points back to a vintage colonial pov, whilst satirically pointing out that their design team ‘managed to fit the entire vibe of a safari onto a swear – minus the guns, the poaching, the tribesman, the Range Rovers, the destructive footprint of man damnit!!!!’ well, here’s waiting for next seasons offering.

A Hong Kong/Moet & Chandon Yacht Experience

“Jungle Jane” is her name and I wouldn’t mine taking her for a jaunt.

Yacht “Jungle Jane” is the collaboration of Hong Kong Yachting and Moet and Chandon that offers a tour of Hong Kong’s Skyline that would make even the richest self-made billionaire pinch themselves. The luxury expedition is a promotion for Chandon’s exquisite Ice Imperial Champagne, which apparently is so good, it will shake the ground below shake once it has struck the lips. (That is not actually a money back guarantee, and the people drinking this probably don’t need money back anyway.)

The seventy five foot yacht accommodates up to 40 guests, with a staff on hand and 12 bottles of Ice Imperial ready for consumption at a price of $2,600. Not to mention the full bar, the independent floating lounge, a slide and an audio system to insure that the party doesn’t vacate.

The good life. (And a sigh of relief.)
