Situated 47 floors above Manchester in the Beetham Tower—a groundbreaking building designed by Simpson that is celebrating its tenth anniversary—the flat is an expansive study in high-rise living, and the building the tallest in the UK outside of London.

Andres Serrano has a reputation for outrage, so the postcard he is holding face down against his chest as we share the closest thing London has to a New York brunch must be strong stuff. Is it a photograph of a shocking sex act, a broken body, a desecrated Christian symbol? He explains that he has never shown this picture before, but decided he had to include it in his new retrospective in Brussels. It is a portrait of Donald Trump.

Suburban dream: nature and concrete meet in this Canadian home

Don’t let the verdant surroundings of Angela Tsementzis’ Concrete House fool you; this home, perched on a slope within the quiet and leafy location of Toronto’s Moore Park Ravine, is conveniently located only a 15 minute drive away from the city’s downtown center district. This urban oasis was built for husband and wife John Pylypczak and Diti Katona and their two children. The couple, who run a branding studio, wished for the design of the 380 sq m home to be centred around their passion for nature, and ‘pure, honest and refined aesthetics.’

In a new classic brace, a molecular masterpiece and a molecular legend are paired for the first time. The essential elements of Monoscent G and Monoscent E: Galoxolide® Super (2007) and Timbersilk® (2012) by IFF, are the newest versions of Galaxolide (1965) and Iso E Super (1973), respectively. Both denatured alcohol solutions are entirely manufactured in the state-of-the-art IFF facility in the United States.

These fundamental aroma molecules are contemporary classics. Just as the iconic white t-shirt serves as the basis for a signature style, Monoscent® can be personalized, worn singly, or layered. A celebrity athlete turned entrepreneur remarks, “after my morning workout, my grooming routine is topped by two sprays of G over a half spray of E, and I’m ready for the day!”
