Great design isn’t always about the price or the designer brand, sometimes it’s just about being clever. Enter Umbra. Trust me, I know sometimes they fall into something a bit too trendy or a bit too kitschy but they do some things really, really well. The Flip Five Hook reminds me a lot of a certain Eames coat hook but more sleek. I would love to hang them end-to-end, multiples across the entire span of a wall. $30 each

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
