Selectism | Around the Web

01. Pop-Up Gourmet | Buenos Aires Comes to You

“Last week, a bit of Buenos Aires sprung up on a TriBeCa rooftop as members of the Society got a taste of the South American underground supper club Casa Felix. For the last three years, the chef Diego Felix and his fiancée, Sanra Ritten, have served pescetarian meals in their colorful home in Chacharita, where random groups of stylish foodies are seated every weekend for a (rare) steak-free evening that focuses on the indigenous ingredients that Felix sources throughout the continent.” (themoment)

02. Brits Miffed by Roger Federer’s Gold-Lamé–Accented Tennis Outfit

“The Telegraph was so stunned by Roger Federer’s Wimbledon outfit yesterday that it devoted twoarticles to the subject. Well, the first was supposed to be chiefly about his tennis (you know, thatsport he plays). Oh, if only the words “unique elegance” and “sublime” were in reference to his ensemble. But alas, no.” (thecut)

03. Our Top Five Favorite Fall/Winter Ad Campaigns So Far

“There’s never a dull moment in fashion. As soon as you think the fall shows are over, it’s onto cruise, and resort, and then the fall lines you had already forgotten about start hitting the shelves. In between all that you might not even have time to think about the ad campaigns!” (r29)

04. The New York Times Magazine Redesign

“A little over a week ago on 14 June 2009 one of my favorite magazines, The New York Times Magazine, quietly unveiled a new design and format in an effort to cut costs and waste (there weretwo artist designed covers for the 14 June issue, shown above). Announced in that issue’s editor’s letter by Gerald Marzorati, I’m surprised how under the radar it went over. It is only the second time they’ve redesigned the magazine in its 100+ years of existence.” (coolhunting)

05. Panta Rhei college interiors / i29

“In the design for the new accommodations of public school Panta Rhei in Amstelveen (NL) there is a lot of attention on the balance between freedom and a sense of security. Snelder Architecten realised a building with many open multifunctional spaces where students can make themselves familiar with the teaching material. The interior design by i29 links up with that perfectly and gives the spaces an identity that connects with the students’ environment and addresses them directly and personally.” (archdaily)
