"We'd used traditional scarecrows but the old ways just don't seem to work any more, so we have had to become more and more inventive."

"Exit Through The Gift Shop" has two daily viewings; 6:00pm and 9:30pm till 4th March - Unfortunately SOLD OUT
Yesterday, to perfectly mark the occasion a few days in advance, the Moschino runway show during Milan Fashion Week was held in front of the building, with the models emerging from the hotel's entrance and walking down a red carpet, while carrying luggage and waving at the editors and press in attendance as though they were old friends.
"The hotel will be located in the old neoclassical railway station on Viale Monte Grappa, 12, that opened in 1840 for the Milan-Monza route. The hotel’s creative direction is led by Rossella Jardini and Moschino’s creative team.
The exterior facades were restructured to be faithful to the original structure, while the interior was completely interpreted in the Moschino style. Divided into four floors, the 65 rooms and junior suites are all different. On the ground floor, the hall and the bar welcome guests into the hotel. The restaurant extends from the hall to the terrace, and the spa and the gym are located on the lower levels.
The common thread connecting the rooms is a fairy tale theme because to sleep is perchance to dream, and dreams are fairy tales that we are allowed to experience first hand, the fables of a fantasy world that we have created. This is an alternate life in which we direct and stage the scripts of our very own play. The hotel interior reflects Moschino’s distinctive style where the ordinary world is painted with a brush of surrealism."
Would you like a sneaky peek of some photos of the hotel before it opens next week.......??!

Thomas Pink have updated the iPod Commuter Tie. Described as "a sophisticated 100% silk woven tie and useful mp3 storage device in one," the natty neckwear features a small pocket on the reverse of the tie designed to perfectly fit the iPod Nano as well as other smaller mp3 players. The music player is placed in the tie pocket to avoid having expensive devices on display or damaging the line of one's suit, while an extra fabric loop keeps wires (including headphone wires) out of sight and close to the body, leaving the hands free.
