The world’s most expensive without replicating it in gold, platinum and diamonds, you know it is something really valuable, something really rare that cannot be reproduced easily. A copy of John James Audubon’s Birds of America tonight became the most expensive book ever sold when it went under the hammer at Sotheby’s for $ 11.50 million.

The auction was a rare chance to own the masterpiece with 435 hand-colored illustrations. The book is seen as a key volume on US natural history. The book was sold to an anonymous collector bidding by telephone. Each individual picture in the book is so valuable that there were fears expressed in some quarters that the masterpiece could be broken up and sold as 435 separate works of art.

The book is invaluable because it is considered a major original contribution to the study of natural history in the New World. It’s also one of the most visually stunning books in the history of print. The Birds of America plates were printed in black and white and hand-colored afterwards.

Men?s Spring/Summer 2011 Street Style Urban Wear Trends

Men?s Spring/Summer 2011 Street Style Urban Wear Trends

 Let us have a look at what will rock the fashion urban scene this spring.

Denim would be a great hit, not only in jeans, but in jackets and casual pants too. Black leather jackets will keep their popularity in street style urban wear throughout the spring season this year.

Striped dress shirts will translate into the work wear, as well as athletic sneakers. Men’s tank tops would be very popular, as well as tracksuits for a casual street style look.

For spring 2011, urban wear t-shirts with funny messages and logos will be in great demand. Embroiders have already paved their way into urban wear and you will find them on shorts, jeans and jackets this spring. It is quite obvious that street style urban wear for men has changed a lot through the years.

A few years ago, you would see men wearing huge baggy jeans and pants with their boxers exposed which became part of the hip hop culture. It was considered fashionable then, but nowadays you can rarely see that.

The modern urban man has started preferring skinny jeans and tight pants. The latest fashion instreet style urban wear has nothing to do with what used to be considered fashionable a few years ago. The pieces which were worn with baggy jeans changed as well, seeking proportion and a slimmer silhouette.

Jackets, shirts and tees have to match the jeans and pants. So if you are wearing tight jeans, then the top needs to complement this look. Oversized clothes are definitely not the fashion thing this spring.

Prints and patterns of this spring/summer are plaid, native patterns—like those of the Aztec, Inca and Mayan influenced prints—and camouflage. When it comes to this spring’s trendy colors, go for checkered shirt patterns with red and white, or black and white, combined with beige pants.

Other colors to consider are light green, blue and yellow for t-shirts, and dark brown for cardigans and leather jackets. Ragged and faded jeans are a total hit this spring, so don’t be afraid to give some edge to your urban look.

A big hit for the colder spring days is the bomber jacket. You can see it on urban styled men and celebrities. Akademiks, Rocawear and Sean Jean’s collections offer great bomber jackets this season.

This year, strut your hoody, adorn your look with accessories, scarves and hats. You’d be surprised at how multifunctional this spring/summer street style urban fashion is going to be.

Urban Garden Design London – Some city style tips

Urban Garden Design London – Some city style tips

Think in terms of adapting Japanese styles, based on relationships between plants, stones and water. Japanese gardens are not geometric in form; they have flowing lines and are intended to be meditative. Sand and gravel are used as the surface. Choose a couple of stunning small trees to plant in the gravel. Japanese maples are ideal for city gardens because they do not grow large. They have stunning leaf colour which changes throughout three seasons and in winter they have even more interest because of their spreading shape and delicate branch structure. Japanese gardens aim to recreate the landscape, but do this in terms of large stones representing mountains and gravel swept into waves representing water. Gravel, two little trees, a couple of large rocks well bedded into the gravel, a rake and a bit of contemplation. What better for city life!

A rose garden, on a small scale, is quite possible in a small city space. A square bed in the middle of the garden can be planted with repeat-flowering roses. It is best to plant three bushes of the same rose close together to get a rich effect. For an example of a scented bed, flowering for six months, plant 3 of Graham Thomas (yellow), 3 of Claire Austin (white-pale yellow), and 3 of Shropshire Lass (pale pink-cream). Underplant the roses with geraniums (cranesbill), not the kind grown in window boxes but the hardy outdoor kind, Johnsons Blue, Album, Lili Lovell – there are dozens of varieties which will flower from May till September and quickly establish themselves as ground cover. Around the bed have a path of sand and crushed shells on all 4 sides, bordered by a lavender hedge – this will grow into a bushy hedge 3 feet high.

A city garden needs to have good drainage, which is one reason for preferring a gravel garden to a patio-style garden. A gravel garden is ideal for a free growing herb garden – unusual, different, and bee-friendly. Order your plants from a herb nursery. Plant creeping thyme and chamomile as paths to be walked on.  In between the paths plant as many other varieties of thyme as you can find, bee thyme, culinary thyme, white thyme.  Plant marjoram, hyssop, lavender, fennel, bergamot, and leave them alone to self-seed, which they will, wildly.

Urban Street Style Trends for the 2011 AutumnWinter Season

Urban Street Style Trends for the 2011 AutumnWinter Season
Neo Nature

Neon and artificial were yesterday’s news. More and more people are rediscovering their love of nature and with it their longing for natural and down-to-earth simplicity. Many people are getting into the “green” vibe. They do not want to just be content on exploring the world in front of their computers. They want to experience the reality and beauty of nature. This is the feeling that has inspired rustic woodsman looks, playful cowgirl styles or aristocratic landlord designs. Coarse knits, fluffy wool and rustic flannel shirts symbolize nature. Looks in this street style theme specially feed on footwear. They are thoroughly worked on and they tell a story. Wellingtons look as if they had already gone through a number of muddy open air heavy metal concerts. Robust mountaineering and workwear styles feature chunky eyelets, thick lace-up details and distinct seams. The inspirations draw on outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing and hiking.
 

Eclectic Ethno

 

Folklore and ethnic influences throughout the world, especially authentic styles, determine this street style theme. The look feeds on both African, Asian and South American inspirations. Influences from Morocco, Japan and the Andes are evident in the magnificent prints and ornaments. Plus, lambskin boots, fur-lined mukluk moccasin boots, ankle boots with knitted cuffs and braided Oxford shoes are shoes designed to echo craftsmanship and preferably a mix of all of these elements and styles. This is what modern nomads look like.

 

Retro Romantic

The “good old days” where telephones with a rotary dial used to ring in the living room are on everyone’s thoughts these days. Even though fashion and zeitgeist have become ever more realistic over the past years, there is a longing for a better world. In street style fashion, this feeling is echoed by oversized coats, soft and comfy boots and huge, homely pullovers to which wearers can literally “retreat.” Nostalgia is a style-defining element here. After tough themes such like glam rock and military, a new romantic wave is now emerging. Country lasses plod through the snow with swingy dresses and clogs. These serve as the blueprint for next winter’s reinterpretations like furlined ankle boots. The new midi skirt hemline—beautifully retro—is combined with playful T-strap shoes or tassel loafers.
 

Sophisticated Seventies

Bellbottoms, long skirts, velvet and cord, rust and brass—the 70s are making a comeback, but still sophisticated with a Studio 54 glam slant rather than with a boho chic or hippie style. This trend needs not to be taken too seriously because it is sometimes very opulent not to say kitsch. It is an attempt to create a counter pole to all the rustic and rugged styles. Not everything is dead serious. Women are no longer afraid of head-turning overknees and proper one, two or three-layer platform shoes that are visible from outside and even in contrasting colors. Color is a key component for this theme in any case. Strong, rich tones are mixed with gold and silver. Snake and crocodile are in evidence again preferably in patterns that are colored, metallized and patched with each other. Patent is also back. The motto for heels: keep going strong. Otherwise, shoes do not look modern. For men, classics are made to look 70s style, which is why wing tips come in python, and why not?
