According to The New Tropic: “The store opened a few years back specializing in high-end denim and apparel for men and women but converted into a bar just in time for the spread of World Cup fever here in Miami.

Lost Boy has only been open for two months but—we’ve got to say—he and his partner Chris Hudnall kind of nailed it.

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance brings out some of the most beautiful, important, rare, and expensive cars from around the world. And the auctions that take place around the event are no different. One of the most significant for sale this year is a Duesenberg originally owned by actor Gary Cooper. It could end up as one of the most expensive American cars ever sold. This Duesenberg SSJ is one of just two ever built. The SSJ was a special short-wheelbase version of the SJ. It was just 3,200 mm between the wheels, as opposed to the 3,6200 mm of the SJ. The cars used a supercharged twin-cam inline eight-cylinder engine. Thanks to a special dual-carburettor intake, the SSJs made 80 hp more than the standard SJ. The SJ was already one of the most powerful production cars of the time, and the 400 hp SSJ flew past it. Fittingly, both went to celebrity owners. The first was this car, sold to actor Gary Cooper. After Cooper’s ownership, the car passed through a number of rich but somewhat less famous owners in California. In 1949, it was purchased by Chicago banker D. Cameron Peck. Peck was one of the first […]
Green is the New Black
Rising concerns about climate change and environmental sustainability has impacted affluent consumers, particularly millennials. The Green luxury is catching on fast in China, where consumers are embracing the benefits of living green, not simply for egalitarian purposes, but for their own happiness. According to market research firm Mintel, Chinese consumers are more likely to purchase ethical brands at a premium price. Fifty-eight per cent of surveyed consumers indicated that they are willing to pay more for ethical brands. International luxury group Kering, which owns brand such as Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, is leading the green movement in China. It recently launched a WeChat mini-program named “My EP&L” (Environmental Profit & Loss), an environmental impact measurement tool that informs consumers of the environmental cost of their purchases, and allows them to make ethical choices based on the calculated cost. The lower the cost, the greener the luxury.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition of commissioned works by Miami-based artist Felice Grodin. The series employs the immersive technology of augmented reality (AR), and is accessible to visitors using iOS devices in PAMM’s outdoor areas and in the Padma and Raj Vattikuti Learning Theater on the museum’s first floor. This AR project is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Influenced by geophilosophy—a field of thought shaped by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari that analyzes the relationship between physical and mental territories—Grodin draws on her training as an architect to explore the mutable within landscape, architecture, and her urban surroundings. Felice Grodin: Invasive Species interacts with PAMM’s architecture, evolving and transforming the museum’s environment for the duration of the exhibition. Featuring a total of four digital works, the show launches with two AR site-specific works—Mezzbug and Terrafish (both 2017)—that engage with and virtually enhance the museum’s building. In Terrafish, Grodin overlaps PAMM’s hanging gardens on the waterfront terrace with the translucent body of a digital species she created, which is suggestive of non-native jellyfish found in South Florida waters. By drawing on the destructive impact of invasive species and creating a new digital environment, Grodin highlights the transformative and unstable state of our ecosystem, speculating about a not-so-distant future affected by climate change and overtaken by uncanny creatures. Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is an augmented reality exhibition that can be viewed via the PAMM App which is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPad. iOS 11.0 or later. […]
