Legendary fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has allowed photographer Douglas Friedman into his Miami home to capture the tastefully designed space. Although many may think Hilfiger's home would have a strong sense of vintage Americana, the truth is quite the opposite as conservative and clean spaces are livened up with bright splashes of color and pattern and decorated with iconic pieces such as Basquiat paintings. The interior embraces motifs of '60s to '70s pop culture and we see an exquisite silver Mickey Mouse standing imposingly in the clean white foyer.

Sponsored Video: Johnnie Walker Blue Label "The Gentlemen's Wager" starring Jude Law & Giancarlo Gianni

Hyperbeast - Thu, 2014-08-21 03:09

Johnnie Walker Blue Label introduces a tale of competition like no other with "The Gentleman's Wager." Shot in the Virgin Islands by British director Jake Scott, the short film has Jude Law going toe-to-toe against fellow actor Giancarlo Gianni for ownership of a 1928 "rarer than rare" Italian boat, the Varraze. While we might be used to seeing Law winning his on-screen battles a certain way, for this stand-off he brings out his most powerful secret weapon: dance.

"The Gentlemen's Wager" is less about competing than it is literally taking a step out of one's comfort zone to win something that can't be bought and by the looks of it, both Gianni and Law are certainly came out tied-for-first in that regard. Both stars look like they had nothing short of a memorable experience shooting the film with Law particularly enjoying the new moves he picked up along the way.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the premier brand in blended scotch whisky with its signature blend drawn from the highest quality of whisky found in only 1 in 10,000 casks. Distinguished by a base of dry smokiness accented by the sweetness of raisins, each sip thereafter reveals layers of hazelnuts, honey and citrus and bold hints of tobacco, dark chocolate and more.

Check out the video above and share your thoughts. For more, visit the website here.

A Look Inside the Upstate New York Home of J.Crew's Frank Muytjens

Hyperbeast - Thu, 2014-08-21 01:01

Very much parallel to the brand he masterfully curates, Frank Muytjens splits himself between city and country. The Head of Menswear Design for J.Crew, when not lounging in his Williamsburg week spot, spends weekends nested in a Hillsdale, New York abode. The home looks almost exactly as one would expect: vintage drawings hang on white-washed walls, contrasting an assortment of rugs the wooden floors; tables and wire chairs of varying origin clash with – or better yet, balance – each other. The shelves are lined with thick, informative books on your choice of architecture, history, photography and more. Burgeoning design authority TRNK was given an exclusive peek inside the home of one of menswear's greatest advocates, painting a portrait of a modern renaissance man. Enjoy the photo set above.
