hedi gores, co-founder of pressed juicery & the chalkboard. hedi gores’ closet is essentially a rodeo drive boutique filled w/racks of clothes & perfectly-placed shoes where the heels are expertly displayed in fresh form. gores’s digs are an eclectic mix of new-meets-old, complete w/rich velvet fabrics, quirky taxidermy & modern detailing — including a custom graffiti wall in her son’s bedroom. from her selection of printed balenciaga skirts to her collection of classic hermès bags, gores has a style that borders cool & classic. & even though her closet is a sea of colourful, whimsical heels, gores always goes back to the simple black pump. “i love the opportunity to be grand, but it’s the classics that are key to who i am.”

condos by missoni. missoni releases renderings for its very first residential project: a condominium tower in a $315 million master-planned community in the philippines.
named after the free-falling rapids of the congo, acqua livingstone is scheduled to be completed by 2015. common spaces, like the pool, lobby & gym, are all decked out in the brand’s variegated squiggles & stripes, but the actual residences are empty of missoni design touches — which are offered for an additional premium.
“we brought our colours & our style inside,” vittorio missoni said of the 52-story building. “coming from the outside you’re going to be surprised[…]it’s like opening a box & discovering something unexpected.”
