A fountain pen that never dries out? The answer lies in this pen’s redesigned cap

The fountain pen hasn’t seen much innovation in the past decade aside from garnering a lot of interest on Instagram and Facebook with those therapeutic calligraphy videos. There’s something quite literally old-school about the fountain pen. It’s elegant, classy, has a user experience that’s definitely dated, but hasn’t grown old. People still use fountain pens today, because they’re elite, graceful, and deliver a line quality that’s beyond compare, thanks to the fountain pen’s ability to use d...

"It’s like Gumby joined a utopian cult — and created the season’s most magical fashion."

Writes Robin Givhan in The Washington Post, about the Rick Owens spring 2018 fashion show in the plaza near the Palais de Tokyo museum.According to Owens’s show notes, the story of this collection was “experimental grace and form.” It was meant to symbolize the rejection of the world’s darkness: environmental peril, social intolerance, cultural wars. It was a gesture towards utopia, but one created by imperfect humans....And here's Vogue, with lots of unpaywalled photos, and the text:In the face...

As Trump Withdraws From The World, Non-State Networks Step Up

The post-1945 world order has been disintegrating for some time. George W. Bush dealt it a major blow with his decision to invade Iraq without United Nations Security Council approval. Barack Obama did his best to repair the torn international legal fabric but often declined to provide the kind of muscular, skin-in-the-game leadership on international crises that U.S. allies ― and adversaries ― had come to expect, thus feeding a narrative of U.S. decline and withdrawal. On the economic side, th...

House of the Week: An 1880s Adobe Home Near Santa Fe

This 2.7-acre estate in a sleepy village outside Santa Fe beautifully captures the architectural flavor of its time. Built in 1881, the year after the railroad arrived and gave Lamy, NM a reason to exist, it still boasts adobe walls and rough-hewn ceiling beams known in these parts as “vigas.” The 3-bedroom, 3-bath main home was for a few decades the Lamy General Store and Post Office, before an oil tycoon bought it in the 1970s, according to current owner Jean Zunkel. The tycoon’s son-in-law tu...

8 Must-Visit Spots in New Orleans

By Jacqueline Terrebonne for Architectural Digest. (Photo: Courtesy of The National WWII Museum) More than almost any other American city, New Orleans is a place that clings to its roots. So it's not surprising that many of the restaurants, clubs, and landmarks described in Walker Percy's 1961 novel The Moviegoer still exist. But in the decade since Katrina, and especially in the past few years, the city has witnessed an influx of new restaurants, shops, and more. As Mardi Gras season begins, h...
