In recent years, automobile manufacturers have responded to the increased demand for “personal” with special designer editions created in collaboration with fashion houses.

Peter Marino is a self-proclaimed “black sheep” of the architecture world. Well known for his black leather attire, Marino has designed many of the world’s most forward-thinking retail temples.

Created by Italian textile and menswear company Ermenegildo Zegna, the ZegnArt Public art project was formed with an ambitious objective: to commission a series of public artworks in countries around the world.

Since Roman times, textile workers have used the thistle-like head of the teasel plant to raise the nap of fine cloth.

It’s a rare morning in the Stratford residence of Colm and Donna Feore: both of them are at home. He’s not starring in a Broadway show, making a miniseries in Rome or finishing off a film in London.
