Exclusive: Gucci teams up with Mytheresa
E-tailer joins forces with Gucci on capsule menswear collection One-Minute Read Felix Bischof Tuesday, July 14, 2020 - 11:17am Earlier this year, Mytheresa added menswear to its offering. As cooked up at its Munich base, the German luxury e-tailer's recipe for success has been two-fold: in addition to a list of approximately 120 international brands, Mytheresa issues special capsule collections, unveiled periodically and only available on the site. Since the January 2020 launch, marquee brands Bottega Veneta, Loro Piana and Fendi have sat next to independent makes (Raf Simons, The Elder Statesman and London menswear talent Martine Rose all feature) and special collections forged in partnership with the likes of Valentino and Thom Browne. For Mytheresa, Prada recently revisited some of 41 of its much beloved sportswear-infused designs from the early 2000s. So far, it's been a successful formula. "From day one we stood for luxury, timeless and modern fashion," says Chris Kyvetos, Mytheresa's Menswear Buying Director. Available from this week, Mytheresa's latest exclusive menswear capsule collection is in partnership with Gucci. "No other Italian label in history has been able to infiltrate mainstream culture like Gucci," Kyvetos enthuses. "At a time when fashion trends, fashion tastes and fashion priorities are changing so dramatically, we felt that Gucci was the best partner to send a true message." For Mytheresa, the Gucci team-up is marks the biggest collection it has issued to date, counting 47 designs in total across ready to wear clothing to accessories and footwear. Modelled by Australian electropop outfit Parcels in a campaign lensed by photographer Bella Lieberberg, the Roman fashion house's Mytheresa collection is heavy on 70s silhouetted tailoring cut from crinkle corduroy, two-tone yarn-dyed flannel and a bold windowpane pattern. Come for the classics: tasselled Gucci loafers fashioned from black, cognac or Bordeaux leather and accented with the brand's signature green-red-green Web and silk carres printed with nostalgic patterns.#fashion_and_jewellery

Nigel Slater’s recipes for pickled gooseberries with mackerel tartare and tomatopickle
Get into a pickle with piquant treats to lift a summer lunchAn entire shelf of the fridge is home to the sour and the salty: fat-bellied jars of sliced pink onions in vinegar; thin coins of skinny cucumbers with soy and ginger; blackberries in a marinade the colour of beaujolais. Each jar is a testament to my love of the piquant. There is very little summer food that isn’t improved by a spoonful of something sour. The cucumber with dill and mustard seeds served with a wedge of cold salmon; the crunch of a radish with a scoop of rose-pink chicken liver pâté or perhaps rhubarb that has been steeped in red wine vinegar and black peppercorns with the glistening fat of a grilled pork chop.There is very little summer food that isn’t improved by a spoonful of something sour Continue reading...#food#fruit#life_and_style#fish

A letter to the UK from Italy: this is what we know about your future
The acclaimed Italian novelist Francesca Melandri, who has been under lockdown in Rome for almost three weeks due to the Covid-19 outbreak, has written a letter to fellow Europeans “from your future”, laying out the range of emotions people are likely to go through over the coming weeks. I am writing to you from Italy, which means I am writing from your future. We are now where you will be in a few days. The epidemic’s charts show us all entwined in a parallel dance. We are but a few steps ahead of you in the path of time, just like Wuhan was a few weeks ahead of us. We watch you as you behave just as we did. You hold the same arguments we did until a short time ago, between those who still say “it’s only a flu, why all the fuss?” and those who have already understood. Coronavirus: the week explained - sign up for our email newsletter Read more As we watch you from here, from your future, we know that many of you, as you were told to lock yourselves up into your homes, quoted Orwell, some even Hobbes. But soon you’ll be too busy for that. First of all, you’ll eat. Not just because it will be one of the few last things that you can still do. You’ll find dozens of social networking groups with tutorials on how to spend your free time in fruitful ways. You will join them all, then ignore them completely after a few days. You’ll pull apocalyptic literature out of your bookshelves, but will soon find you don’t really feel like reading any of it. You’ll eat again. You will not sleep well. You will ask yourselves what is happening to democracy. You’ll have an unstoppable online social life – on Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom… Advertisement You will miss your adult children like you never have before; the realisation that you have no idea when you will ever see them again will hit you like a punch in the chest. Old resentments and falling-outs will seem irrelevant. You will call people you had sworn never to talk to ever again, so as to ask them: “How are you doing?” Many women will be beaten in their homes. You will wonder what is happening to all those who can’t stay home because they don’t have one. You will feel vulnerable when going out shopping in the deserted streets, especially if you are a woman. You will ask yourselves if this is how societies collapse. Does it really happen so fast? You’ll block out these thoughts and when you get back home you’ll eat again. You will put on weight. You’ll look for online fitness training. You’ll laugh. You’ll laugh a lot. You’ll flaunt a gallows humour you never had before. Even people who’ve always taken everything dead seriously will contemplate the absurdity of life, of the universe and of it all. You will make appointments in the supermarket queues with your friends and lovers, so as to briefly see them in person, all the while abiding by the social distancing rules. You will count all the things you do not need. The true nature of the people around you will be revealed with total clarity. You will have confirmations and surprises. Literati who had been omnipresent in the news will disappear, their opinions suddenly irrelevant; some will take refuge in rationalisations which will be so totally lacking in empathy that people will stop listening to them. People whom you had overlooked, instead, will turn out to be reassuring, generous, reliable, pragmatic and clairvoyant. Those who invite you to see all this mess as an opportunity for planetary renewal will help you to put things in a larger perspective. You will also find them terribly annoying: nice, the planet is breathing better because of the halved CO2 emissions, but how will you pay your bills next month? You will not understand if witnessing the birth of a new world is more a grandiose or a miserable affair. You will play music from your windows and lawns. When you saw us singing opera from our balconies, you thought “ah, those Italians”. But we know you will sing uplifting songs to each other too. And when you blast I Will Survive from your windows, we’ll watch you and nod just like the people of Wuhan, who sung from their windows in February, nodded while watching us.#Many of you will fall asleep vowing that the very first thing you’ll do as soon as lockdown is over is file for divorce. Many children will be conceived. Your children will be schooled online. They’ll be horrible nuisances; they’ll give you joy. Elderly people will disobey you like rowdy teenagers: you’ll have to fight with them in order to forbid them from going out, to get infected and die. You will try not to think about the lonely deaths inside the ICU. You’ll want to cover with rose petals all medical workers’ steps. You will be told that society is united in a communal effort, that you are all in the same boat. It will be true. This experience will change for good how you perceive yourself as an individual part of a larger whole.#italyItaly

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
On that story, the little prince, fell in love instantly with a rose in his asteroid. The little prince care so much to the rose. The rose with its thorns seems defenseless and susceptible- and yet, she shows off her thorns and puts on a superior attitude. But the rose’s vanity and demands cause the heartbreak of the little prince. And thus, he decided to leave its asteroid and the rose. “She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her… I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her…” Just before the prince leaves, the rose said to it’s prince : “Of course I love you,” the flower said to him. “It is my fault that you have not known it all the while. That is of no importance. But you — you have been just as foolish as I. Try to be happy…” On his voyage to the earth, he come across a huge rose garden, and he realised that his roses were not the only one in the universe. “There might be millions of roses in the whole world, but you’re my only one, unique rose.” On the movie adaptation, the rose is the reason why the prince come back to its asteroid even though it’s too late that the rose has dead. “. . . One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes. . . . It’s the time that you spent on your rose that makes your rose so important. . . . You become responsible for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose. . . .” The story was telling a beautiful story of love. As the rose, we may take the love that’s being given as granted, and thus, we forgot to ’taking care’ of the love itself. And as a little prince, we may need to go around the world to realise that our rose is the only one because ‘anything essential is invisible to the eyes…’ Even though the rose is being portrayed in the story as a vain, foolish, frail, and naïve creature, the little prince loves that rose. Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.#littleprince #rose #fox #art #love Tbilisi

10 inspiring quotes from "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Here's our compilation of the best quotes from "Le Petit Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, complete with valuable life lessons for all. "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” “It is much more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom." "What matters most are the simple pleasures so abundant that we can all enjoy them...Happiness doesn't lie in the objects we gather around us. To find it, all we need to do is open our eyes.” “All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems... But all these stars are silent. You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them." “Well, I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.” “It's the time you spent on your rose that makes your rose so important...People have forgotten this truth, but you mustn't forget it. You become responsible forever for what you've tamed. You're responsible for your rose.” “But the conceited man did not hear him. Conceited people never hear anything but praise.” “A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” “All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.” “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”#littleprince #quotes #AntoinedeSaintExupéry #art Tbilisi

Student Faces 10 Years In Prison for Using a ‘USB Kill’ Stick - - - A former student of the College of Saint Rose who has destroyed equipment belonging to the university and worth roughly $51k has admitted his guilt and now faces a sentence of 10 years in prison, as well as $250k in fines. The student is an Indian named Vishwanath Akuthota and was studying “computer information systems” in the New York college, following the completion of his Master’s in Business. At some point, and without a clear reason, Akuthota started destroying computers using a “USB Kill”, a $50 device that can perform electrical overloading to the USB port circuitry, passing a 200-volt discharge over the data lines of the victimized device. USB sticks can infect a system with malware or exfiltrate data upon their connection, but electrical attacks is a serious possibility that most computer and laptop manufacturers just don’t take into account. Because shielding the USB input from electrical overloading has an additional cost, about 95% of systems out there are vulnerable to these cheap “USB Kill” sticks. Apple is one of the few that shields its products, so it’s invulnerable to those destructive sticks. Akuthota has victimized 59 computers, and another seven computer monitors that featured USB ports. The man probably did it for fun, or maybe to raise awareness on the importance of shielding. The fact that he took a video of his “killing spree” pertains to both possible justifications behind his actions, but it is this very move that uncovered him. By accounting another $7k which is the cost of the investigations, the total damage caused by Akuthota is about $58.5k. As those nasty little sticks need only a couple of seconds to charge their capacitors and direct the energy back into the system’s circuitry, getting to the bottom of it was hard for the investigators who worked with the college to figure out what was going on. 📌 This case is a good reminder of the dangers that lurk in the practice of plugging anything into our USB ports. Moreover, the amount of financial damage caused by a single, non-motivated, educated person “just for the fun of it” is an excellent chance for hardware manufacturers to rethink their approach in “USB shielding”, and maybe take that extra protective step and market it accordingly. It’s about time we render those USB kill sticks obsolete.
