There is a really good exhibition at the Arts Decoratives Museum of the fashion designs through the years of French designer, Thierry Mugler. Interestingly, he left fashion in 2002, except for his perfume line. He now goes by his first name, Manfred, and is into body building big time. Celebrities will sometimes call him out of his reclusive life to design something, Beyoncé and Kim Kardasian being two. Here are a few photos of the many things in the exhibit:

Oud-themed fragrances had slipped their way into the top of the international niche perfumery by the beginning of the millennium, and they never fell back since. Now, forget about the Aquilaria trees' mold infections, the fabled damp rot,... Read full article: Athena Quintessence - Two Easy to Wear Oud Themed Fragrances from Fragrantic...

How the world's largest Hanukkah menorah makes it to New York City

Wie ich durch eine Brustverkleinerung meinen Körper zurückbekam

Das erste Mal, dass mir klar wurde, dass ich große Brüste hatte, war in der sechsten Klasse. Ich hatte gerade die Schule gewechselt, und meine neueste Schulfreundin erinnerte sich laut an den Tag zurück, als ich der Klasse einen Monat zuvor mit meinen Eltern einen ersten Besuch abgestattet hatte. Scheinbar hatte ich bei allen meiner neuen Mitschüler:innen einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlassen: Ich hatte nett und clever gewirkt und – laut der Jungs in der Klasse – war scheinbar deutlich „reife...

How to Be a Samurai: A 17th Century Code for Life & War

Many today draw inspiration from Bushid?, the Way of the Warrior, a comprehensive code of conduct for premodern Japan’s samurai (or bushi).
