Hong Kong’s Bibo; Where Street Art Meets French Cuisine

bibohongkong1

How do you blend the best of international street art with fine French cuisine, in Hong Kong? That was the challenge handed to creative design agency Substance by the owner of Bibo – also an avid collector of contemporary urban art. Bibo is half gallery/half restaurant, located on Hollywood Road amid offices, boutiques and galleries, and at first glance Bibo doesn’t shout about its restaurant function.

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake: a whole different kind of Hyatt

by Leslie Long

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay at Night 2(3)

When I think staying an a Hyatt, I imagine myself in a city center in a big, lively environment with a soaring atrium, lots of businesspeople coming and going. A recent stay at The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake offered a completely different kind of experience.

Beautifully laid out on the banks of the Choptank River, the hotel has 400 acres of property including walkways, woods, golf greens, a pier and a varied, scenic waterfront. Rather than coming and going, most of the guests seemed perfectly happy to stay put, choosing from relaxing around the pools and hot tub, boating, golfing, kayaking, tennis, stand-up-paddle or visiting the beautiful Sago Spa and Salon. The hotel interiors are open and bright, taking full advantage of the spectacular location.

Listen Up!: Vic Mensa & Michael Uzowuru “Waves”

vic-mensa-waves

We like when the envelope gets pushed! Vic Mensa hasn’t let us down yet, by embracing his urge to show his versatility amongst numerous identities and morphing them all back into one individual.  From Disclosure-esque club bangers like “Down On My Luck” to grimy hip hop anthems “Feel That” or the Kaytranada-produced “Wimme Nah,” Mensa has now shown us yet another side of his character: the soft-spoken, gentle side. With “Waves,” produced by former Odd Future collaborator Michael Uzowuru, Mensa dusts off his singing chops over waves of tender instrumentals. The song appears on Uzowuru’s Pink Orchids EP, which you can stream here. Hear “Waves” below.

Limité Must-See: Velvet Goldmine (1998)

by Opal H. Bennett

Ewan McGregor in VELVET GOLDMINE

There’s something magical that happens each time I watch Velvet Goldmine, Todd Haynes’s dazzling ode to glam rock. With every screening, it’s like seeing it for the first time all over again. I find myself swept up by the psychedelic world imagined by Haynes and brought to crackling life by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ewan McGregor, and Christian Bale. It is an ambitious, eclectic, and entirely unique film, where story, design, character, and music all collide in brilliant and unforgettable form. (I dare you to watch the “Baby’s on Fire” scene between Meyers and McGregor and not feel like you’re on fire.) Haynes is said to have intended it as a story about the love affair between America and Britain, New York and London, and the way the culture of one fed off the other during the ’70s.

Listen Up!: Kaytranada, “Leave Me Alone” (Feat. Shay Lia)

kaytrandada-leave-me-alone

Canada must be on some super urgency to hold the torch in the music industry right now, especially within the soulesque ambient dream state music that has been pouring out from up north. Kaytranada, an up-and-coming producer from Montreal who has already secured the blessings of Disclosure, Mobb Deep, and Vic Mensa. The 21-year-old producer has been earning his stripes with his fusion of electronica and Hip-Hop. “Leave Me Alone” is a sample of what he’s capable of achieving – enlisting fellow Montreal Native Shay Lia with vocals to provide that smooth flow that will lead to some head nods and foot tapping. The track will appear on the producer’s Kaytranada EP, So Bad. Hear it below:

Listen Up!: Charli XCX Announces New Album, Listen to “Break The Rules” Single

Electronic-Beats-Charli-XCX

You must have heard of Charli XCX by now, fresh off the undeniable infectious single with Iggy Azalea, “Fancy”, Charli XCX announced a few details about her upcoming sophomore album, Sucker. She was kind enough to release her first single “Break The Rules”, which leads you into a sorta ska-type then finding its way into ’90s EDM land. We’re curious to see what else is in store. Sucker is out October 21.

spikejonze_jonah_01

Fashion retailer Opening Ceremony has recruited long-time collaborator Spike Jonze (director of Being John Malkovich and Her) to create a one-act play for its New York Fashion Week show. In turn, Jonze has recruited comedy actor Jonah Hill to help make it something really special.

This isn’t the first time Jonze has created a live performance like this – he also worked with Arcade Fire for their performance of “Afterlife” at the YouTube awards, which featured actress Greta Gerwig. “We were really excited about him writing an original script and seeing how this would take shape,” says Opening Ceremony co-founder Humberto Leon. The play is scheduled for 7 September, 2014. Let’s see what he comes up with!

Origami Inspired Leather Wallets by PACT

pact-leather-items-1

Most of the leather goods we known have been cut with knives or die cut, followed by a stitching or glue process and finally embossed or imprinted with some sort of branding or customization. PACT leather wallets and case are far different. Inspired by origami, architect Darrin Griechen has created a process whereby leather is cut into extremely precise patterns using computer-guided lasers, and then woven & folded together by hand. No thread, glue or hardware. This “unilateral” construction method allows for pieces that are both strong & durable. With no other materials to wear out, they also age beautifully.

The PACT minimalism extends to how each piece is branded. You won’t find a name or logo anywhere. Instead, a small discreet dot pattern is laser-engraved into each piece. The pattern is different for every owner so no two are alike.
