Cool or Not?

I am having a hard time figuring out if this tshirt is ugly in a good way or bad way… Note: I would get it if I thought I could pull it off but since I can’t I won’t.

Hotel Missoni – Kuwait

Post by Mark

This looks like its going to be a really cool hotel but its strange that they’re opening the first Missoni Hotels in Edinburg and Kuwait. I thought I had posted something about it before but can’t seem to find my post. This is the hotels launch movie which is beautifully done. [YouTube]

Dubai to finance Villa Moda growth

I just found out about this and think its amazing news for Villa Moda and all the other local start ups. It just goes to show that great local ideas are great ideas anywhere in the world.

Majed al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti lifestyle retailer known in the fashion world as the “Sheik of Chic,” has teamed up with the government of Dubai to create a global brand development strategy for his Villa Moda enterprise.

The Dubai International Finance Center, or DIFC, was to announce Monday that it had taken a majority investment in the multibrand high fashion retailer, where Sabah will remain as chairman and creative director. The exact amount of the investment was not disclosed.

I think Dubai is a perfect partner for Villa Moda but its depressing because Villa Moda is a Kuwaiti based idea and operation and it would have meant more to have Kuwait finance Villa Moda. But I guess its not only about the money, Dubai have a vision, Kuwait’s vision is… Dubai? [Link]

Thanks Mish!

Adidas ZX 450

I posted about the ZX 450’s back in July, what I didn’t know back then was that they would be limited to only 563 pairs! Luckily I found a pair online my size and just ordered them, there are still 3 more pairs available on eBay size UK9 and UK10 if anyone is interested.
