We’ve all seen Titanic and heard about the effects of global warming – but we have to ask, is this really the inspiration for the furry pants Freja and Abbey Lee were seen wearing at the Chanel show? Along with sheepskin and mohair there were gorgeous knit dresses, must have tweeds and Yeti style capes on display. The Karl Lagerfelds collection included road worthy helmets covered in chinchilla and mink designed in conjunction with Ruby, the well known French manufacturer of motorbike helmets. Jewels and sparkled detailing on the helmets also adorned on the shoulders of jackets and dresses for a fall/winter collection with street ice appeal!

The Baobab Loveseat is the newest creation to come from young Mexican Industrial Designer Christian Vivanco. Modelled on the idea of the giant Baobab trees, which store water inside their swollen trunks to endure drought, this sofa welcomes you with its protective shell, promising to envelop you in comfort. This lounge practically begs you to lie down and take the place of water in the Baobab. It is a result from Vivanco’s experiments with surfaces and rhythm, and is a continuous development of the value of mass and volume. Feel at one with nature and peacefulness with this particular chair.
