Top 20 Trends of the Day (Nov 18)

20. Sustainable Fitness Centers

Jean Marc Rivet is a French architect who I believe has built the fitness center of the future. His French gymnasium boasts several eco-friendly innovations designed to cut down on the typically ravenous power consumption of modern-day athletic facilities.

Jean Marc Rivet’s structure incorporates rooftop gardens to aid in insulation, while a large skylight provides light during the day. Photovoltaic cells store the sun’s energy during the day and use it to provide illumination after dark.

The Armani

Harper’s Bazaar editorial is definitely one way of showcasing new designs. The spread stars Giorgio Armani himself as he plays host to supermodel Bar Refaeli on his luxury 213-foot yacht named Maìn.

The Ming Xi Vogue China spread entitled ‘Flying High’ will have you soaring.

Gorgeous model Ming Xi accessorizes each ensemble with an exotic plumed element. Not the typical flock you’ll regularly see, these feathers are plucked from extravagant winged animals.

17. Badass Bike Chairs

I have to say that the ‘Chain Rocker’ is truly badass. Although the chair is not made from motorcycle components, it does actually combines real bicycle parts.

Designed by BRC Designs, the ‘Chain Rocker’ was constructed out of bike chains and rubber tires. By layering these bicycle elements onto a 98% recycled steel support, they managed to create quite the extreme eco-friendly seat.

The Patrycja Gardygajlo Elle Poland issue brings retro looks to an office setting.

Against the carpeted floor, relaxing in a chair and at her desk, Patrycja Gardygajlo dresses in fall looks of mixed and matched colors and patterns. Sheer blouses, poodle skirts and oversized eyewear make up ensembles fit for office glam.

There is something very refreshing about the Vilshenko SS11 collection. I think it has a lot to do with the classic tailoring, light color palette and, of course, bright lighting.

Designed by Olga Vilshenko, the Vilshenko SS11 collection easily takes inspiration from her Russian background.

French photographer Sacha Goldberger’s Mamika is a series of photographs portraying his grandma Frederika in a superhero costume. In this Mamika series, Frederika conveys the message of hope, joy and self-confidence.

The idea of Mamika came when Sacha discovered that his 91-year-old Hungarian grandma was depressed and feeling lonely. He persuaded Frederika to take part in this series in unusual costume and different poses.

The ‘Pyramid Project’ is a unique concept for a sustainable housing complex to be built by LAR in the Mexican city of Merida. The city of Merida is on the Yucatan Peninsula, home of the ancient Mayan civilization.

The ‘Pyramid Project’ would be constructed just like an ancient Mayan pyramid, complete with modern, eco-friendly amenities.

There’s something about illuminated design that gets people enthralled, and the ‘FARM’ Singapore light installation is no exception.

Affectionately called ‘The Tree,’ the abstract sculptural installation is a magnificent sight to see, and can be found at the National Museum of Singapore. Gorgeous with its grand appearance, the ‘FARM’ Singapore light installation becomes a beacon of light at nightfall.

Have you found yourself clapping at your iPod lately when a great song finishes? If so, it’s best time you get yourself down to the ‘WKSU Folk Festival.’ This clever campaign takes the classic form of early 20th century posters, in which the Marcus Thomas ad agency has worked in some 21st century humor.

It’s not unusual to have to stand for half an hour while waiting for public transit, but these Absolut Vodka bus shelters will have your reclining experience refined. As a continuation of its ‘Every Drink is an Exceptional Experience’ campaign in light of TBWZ\Chiat\Day, the French alcoholic spirit brand brings poised personality to intersections around Chicago.

The Vogue Italia ‘Acrobats’ editorial featuring Karen Elson by Steven Meisel is a fun-filled shoot, chronicling a day in the life of a circus performer.

While the clowns and other performers are decked out in traditional costumes, the beautiful female model rocks some very fashionable outfits. I personally haven’t been on a merry-go-round in a while, but these picture of Karen Elson by Steven Meisel make me want to revisit this childhood past time.

Celebration issue 6 will be one to remember, especially with the addition of this hot house party pictorial by Kevin Amata. The shoot features models having the kind of fun your parents would disapprove of.

Brimming with half-naked hotties and bad habits, Celebration issue 6 looks as though it could have been shot at a college campus or dirty downtown loft. Ultimately, the spread simply screams holds-no-bars.

When Matt Busch says “Hollywood is dead,” he is not referring to slumping box office numbers or talentless cookie-cutter actors on screen. ‘Hollywood is dead’ is actually the title of his art series, depicting famous movie characters as zombies.
