phil’s youtube channel was incredibly successful, and he was incredibly happy. he could put on makeup without fearing ridicule; his preferred natural look included blush and contouring the cheek bones that dan described as ‘sharp enough to cut glass.’ 

dan’s company, angel label, was a popular store that did not label the clothing as pertaining to one gender. instead, dan preferred to allow boys to wear skirts, and girls to wear ties, all the while looking great.

The new Highland and Willoughby store is one of Starbucks newest historic restorations of historic buildings.

Once synonymous with Hong Kong, the fashion-centric Lane Crawford now has two locations in Beijing, China—the latest is in a massive mixed-use development by John Portman & Associates. Yabu Pushelberg organized the 19,000 square feet into a curated series of rooms, as if in a futuristic mansion. Photography by Nacása & Partners.
