Oscar de la Renta's off-season presentations (the few that I went to) were easily my favorites. Not because there were far less editors there — there were — but because de la Renta himself would sit alongside us and talk through the collection.

So his absence at the house's pre-fall collection showing was perhaps especially keen. "It's been an emotional few days for us," Alex Bolen, CEO of Oscar de la Renta and son-in-law of the late designer, said in the moments before the first look came out. "Oscar loved nothing more than the prep for a show" — the lunch the weekend before, the "obligatory fight over music," the worry that there wouldn't be enough things in the collection for Mrs. de la Renta to wear. "But no one more embodied 'the show must go on,'" he added. (via fashionista.com)

this roadside café by japanese practice bandesign is clad with polished mirrored surfaces that reflect the building’s residential environment. situated in the country’s gifu prefecture, the project is positioned opposite a row of cherry trees, a popular destination for visitors during the blossom season.

internally, dining areas are organized around two openings that present external views of the arboreal setting, while a small kitchen is found at the rear of the plan. furthering the strong connection the scheme shares with nature, vertical roof struts take the form of individual branches, allowing guests to feel as if they are able to take refuge underneath the protective tree-like structure.
