FARM:shop in Dalston, London

(8 years ago)
Here’s the latest discovery from Justine based in London!20 Dalston Lane in the heart of East London seems an odd address for a farm. But Dalston’s FARM:shop is literally a farm in a shop. Once a derelict store, the shop is now a shop/cafe/meeting place and farm all in one. It is home to hundreds of growing plants arranged in every setup imaginable from a backyard polytunnel to hydroponics setup where plants are fed by the fish. It is even home to a flock of rooftop living chickens!A perfect combination of public spaces/projects with urban farming, I knew this one would be right up our alley, and when I heard about the hydroponics and chickens on the roof, I knew it would be one not to miss.More photos on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "FARM:shop in Dalston, London"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?

Quarterre

Fahrräder sind urbane Mobilitätskonzepte, Lifestyleprodukte, Fortbewegungsmittel und Sportgeräte. Gerade in Städten werden die getreuen Drahtesel gern mit in die Wohnung genommen, aus Faulheit, aus Sicherheitsgründen oder weil das Fahrrad so unglaublich gut aussieht, dass man es halt immer sehen möchte. In London, genauer gesagt bei Quarterre, hat man sich entsprechende Gedanken über möglichst praktische und [...]

2012 Nissan GT-R + GearPatrol x Onia Shorts

(8 years ago)
Leave it to GearPatrol to come hand deliver their Onia collaboration Amaury board shorts in a 2012 Nissan GT-R in a nearly matching blue (their shorts are far less sparkly than the car thankfully) ~ So what better way to unbox it ~ than to unbox them together… so we popped the hood of the car to see the beast within, opened up the zipper pouch the shorts come in… and even found that the coin pocket they specially lined for the collab is a PERFECT fit for your GT-R key! And to top it off, when you start the car up, she even announces that there is a “High surf warning around current location.” Exactly when you need board shorts! So we promptly hopped in the car and took off along the beach to Malibu for lunch… though it’s currently one of the fastest production cars to lap the Nürburgring… we sadly didn’t have a chance to really see what it could do. Keep an eye over at GearPatrol to see what they have been up to with it soon! But for now, take a look at the GP x Onia Board Shorts and my favorite details of the 2012 Nissan GT-R on the next page.p.s.After unboxing Louboutins on the Mars Red C63, it seemed appropriate to switch to blue and unbox the GP x Onia on the GT-R. What next?TO PAGE 2 of "2012 Nissan GT-R + GearPatrol x Onia Shorts"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)
