gap x valentino

Gap x Valentino – the unlikely pair is going to do a collaboration! Unfortunately, the pieces will not be available in the U.S. They will be available in Milan, London and Paris – in time for the opening of the new Gap store in Milan’s Corso Vittorio Emanuele in November, 2010. Coincidentally around the same time as the release of H&M x Lanvin collabo line..? No photos are available but I’ll keep an eye out!

you’ve got to love London

As much as I disliked living in London, after watching this video, I kind of miss the city. I need to backpack through Europe again sometime soon.

Thanks vestimaniacs

double-decker of the future

I saw this news a few days ago but I never got around to posting about it. I thought the newer double decker buses in Hong Kong with less-steep and narrow staircase was futuristic and user-friendly, but the new London double-decker design definitely tops them by a million times.
I was surprised there are designers specifically for buses. Well, doh, since there are designers for cars and motorbikes, why can’t there be designers for buses? Capoco Design is the automotive engineering design company responsible for the new look.  

I mean, I love the old-skool double decker buses… but how cool does the new design look? The new design is almost 3 meters longer with two staircases which enables easier access for the passengers… if the passengers follow directions/rules.
My only concern is that because there are three points of entry, it might just end up being a free-bus like people think on those bendy #25 buses… meaning more people have to be employed by the TfL (Transport for London) to ensure that passengers are all paying bus fares.
