If you love innovative contemporary architecture that utilizes landscapes in ways never dreamed of, then you'll absolutely die for the Casa Brutale X OPA ($TBA). A concept in design Casa Brutale, very much reminds me of the Cliff House By Modscape. I do find the OPA design a bit more elegant.OPA describes Casa Brutale as,"a geometrical translation of the landscape. It is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment. It is the inverted reference to Casa Malaparte, encased and protected by the tender earth that has hosted the human civilization for millennia. It is a complete study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering, which thoroughly detailed, awaits solely its realisation." There is no denying the home's visually stunning beauty which comes from its basic underlying simplicity and minimal interior designs. The house is defined by three concrete slabs, and a pool made from reinforced glass. The pool allows natural light to shine through into the lower levels bringing every surface to life. The lower levels being inside the cliff benefit from thermal insulation, as well as the cooling properties of having a body as the roof. As you enter the structure you descend 50 stairs and are greeted with breathtaking views of the vast body of water in front of you. OPA ends their description by saying that, "Casa Brutale redefines the harmonious coexistence of human and nature in a poetic homage to pure Brutalism."I completely agree.
Either you absolutely love them or you hate. Folks usually don't sit on the fence when it comes to Huarache. Well the brand new Nike Air Huarache - Two-Tone Blue ($134) will have a lot more people considering whether or not to pick up a pair. These new kicks are a redesign of the classic 1991 silhouette. The colorway comes from navy and royal blue on the leather, mesh and neoprene. While the iconic huarache strap finishes off the upper nicely. The whole kit sits on an all white midsole with a black outsole. You can pick up a pair over at J.D. Sports in the U.K.

Our first customizer based out of South Africa, new comer on the block Wolf Moto is trying to make a statement with their new offering, the Wolf Moto - 1980 Moto Guzzi LeMans II ($TBA). This 1980 Moto Guzzi is the first one by builders Kyle Scott and Chris Clokie. Their goal was to give the forty plus year-old bike a cafe racer styling. To get there they completely stripped it, refreshed the engine, added a new coat of paint, and sandblasted and powder coated the engine. Additional upgrades include brand new Dell'Orto carbs, a custom stainless steel exhaust system, and Brembo twin pot calipers. The whole kit rides on Bridgestone Spitfire 2s and is sure to make the new owner very happy.
It looks like the new Galaxy Gear Smartwatch ($299) will hit the market this year, beating Apple to the punch. The new Galaxy Gear will have a 1.63 inch screen and allow you to receive emails, take and share pictures, and download additional apps to provide more functionality. Technical specs include 512 megs of RAM and 4 gigs of memory. There are a couple of things you need to be aware of, the Gear only works with Samsung tablets or smartphones and battery life is limited to about 25 hours. The Galaxy Gear will be available in six colors when it hits stores.
The Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane ($600K) is the fastest single piston private plane available. Capable of over 260 knots and with a cruising range of 1050 nautical miles, it'll get you to your destination quickly and in style. And if you're squeamish when it comes to flying you have a little less to worry about with the Valkyrie, because it comes with a parachute to soften those crash landings and a forewing to prevent the plane from stalling in the air. Additional features include enough space for 5, including the pilot and a Turbocharged 350HP engine. A rear engine pusher configuration that provides lower cabin noise, smoother and safer take-offs and landings, and unobstructed 320-degrees of visibility. If you have the scratch, private flight is a great way to travel.
