EntertainmentWow! Do you want one? It'll cost you!Jennifer Nied2017-12-28FacebookWith every passing year, Star Wars fans seem to up the ante in honoring the franchise. This year, many bought tickets to “The Last Jedi” months in advance—and some even donned their best apparel from a galaxy far far away to attend screenings. We’re already planning a stay at the Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World.
One lifelong fan has turned his passion into one-of-a-kind art. Indianapolis-based artist Gabriel Dishaw transforms vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases into Star Wars sculptures.
“I really enjoy taking two different ideas, or concepts that you wouldn’t normally consider together, and mashing them up,” Dishaw recently told Mental Floss.
Creative SparkStar Wars and Louis Vuitton definitely fit the bill of ideas you wouldn’t think to combine. For Dishaw, it all started when he bought Louis Vuitton luggage from an antique store.
“A spark of creativity came over me,” Dishaw told Mental Floss. “I k..
Figuring out what makes for good design is an admittedly subjective exercise: Ask a dozen experts their thoughts on, say, why faux Mid-Century Modern is still popular in American interior design long after "Mad Men" has left us, and you'll likely get a dozen different opinions.
Nevertheless, some home design trends manage to rise to mass acceptance. Thanks to unstoppable forces like HGTV and Pinterest—which might be single-handedly responsible for the misguided installation of thousands of sliding barn doors over the past few years—these trends tend to take on a life of their own.
And sometimes they just won't die, even when they absolutely should.

East Rutherford, NJ (December 2017) – John (Jack) Shearing (87), legendary Broadway sound designer, died December 3, 2017 at his home in Los Angeles. He was born Jan 23, 1930, in Queens, to Anne Keller, a public-school teacher, and John Shearing, a Broadway head carpenter, who co-founded Masque Sound and Recording (he himself was the son of a property man at the Metropolitan Opera).
Shearing attended the High School of Music and Art in NYC, mastering piano and French horn. After graduation, he served in the army during the Korean War. Upon his return to the U.S., he attended and graduated from Brown University with a degree in electrical engineering and joined his father at Masque Sound.
Upon his father’s death Shearing bought out the co-owning partner of the company and under his direction, Masque Sound became the leading sound shop on Broadway, as well as foremost sound provider for local and national regional theater and national and global tours. His experience as a sound engineer ..
You enter the Rick Owens exhibition at the Triennale di Milano through a tall notch sliced from a white wall angled like a ziggurat. Within, a darkened antechamber has a backstage vibe. Two columns of spotlights mounted on a scaffolding arch face off, creating a wall of light beams through which you cross, as if passing through a final check before stepping out onto the runway.
“Subhuman Superhuman Inhuman” is the first retrospective in Mr. Owens’s 23-year fashion career. The runway atmosphere is not coincidental, Mr. Owens said. On the one hand, the introspection that goes into a self-curated retrospective dictates that “this is kind of a portentous, significant moment.” On the other: “It’s also another show, and I do four shows a year. If I didn’t, something like this would be a lot more intense, probably. It’s kind of a show of all my shows.”

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” — Coco Chanel (the late French fashion designer and businesswoman who died in 1971).
Jewelry artist Beth North of Birmingham is a strong believer of those thought-provoking words because she feels, “A lot of people follow trends too much, and should pick and choose what works for them and express their individuality.”
North, 49, is successful at using her jewelry-making skills to create wearable art that allows her customers to think outside the (jewelry) box when selecting body ornamentation. Her pieces — rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more — are very fashion forward and designed for confident individuals who aren’t afraid to try on a unique and head-turning look. She sells her work under the name Beth North Designs.

Designer wineries are dazzling us. In Spain’s Rioja region, Frank Gehry’s Marqués de Riscal and Zaha Hadid’s Rafael López de Heredia Tondonia Winery have set a new bar for beautiful winemaking spaces. French vintners heard the call, with the family JM Cazes adding some design touches to their Château Cordeillan-Bages in the Haut-Médoc region of Bordeaux. But now the Aussies are getting in on this action, hiring their own set of cool architects and designers to create distinctive places for wine tasting and relaxing.
One of the newest editions to the designer wineries of Australia is the Rubik's Cube–inspired d'Arenberg Cube, opened this November. The unusual winery is in South Australia’s famed McLaren Vale wine region, and the five-story multi-use building is set among Mourvèdre vines and overlooks the rolling hills of Willunga. Plus, Michelin-starred chef Brendan Wessels is leading the culinary program there.

“Authenticity is absent in our lives and from design, for sure.”
Harsh? Maybe. Typically Michael Anastassiades? Absolutely.
The London-based designer isn’t one to react to trends or get caught-up in the world of social media. As demonstrated by the above one-liner, his life philosophy is as honest and fluff-free as his reductionist designs. In short, expect (well-proportioned) fireworks when the sculptural lighting specialist presents at Design Circus, the much-respected annual design event that brings industry big-hitters to Perth to talk candidly and openly about their careers.
For Anastassiades, this career began with studying civil engineering at London’s Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine. After getting his masters in Industrial Design from the Royal College of Art, he took his first steps in the world of design. Since establishing his eponymous design studio in 1994, he’s collaborated with names such as furniture brand Herman Miller and lighting specialists FLOS...
