Directed by Christophe Pillet, Lacoste Lab is meant to bridge the gap between the brands historical roots and its future. Included are some beautifully designed, largely in preppy white, sports pieces including a Jetsons-era Citroën concept car, surf boards, boomerangs, and this sweet, sweet ride. The retail price of this beauty? €2300, not including titanium-reinforced theft prevention device and/or optional security guard.
This week sees the opening, or at least repurposing, of the latest from David Chang’s acclaimed Momofuku ventures. Located behind the Momofuku Ssäm Bar, chemistry meets mixology at Booker and Dax via artfully concocted cocktails and signature finger foods. If it’s like the other Momofuku projects, it’s not likely to disappoint.
