If you thought you knew Jared Leto, think again. The prolific actor, famous for such movies as "Fight Club", "Requiem for a Dream", and "American Psycho", seems like a shade of his former self. Decked out in skin tight jeans, leather studded jacket, and complete with a fresh pink mohawk, this 30 Seconds to Mars front man took Miami by storm with all of the energy and charisma you could only expect from a seasoned rock star. From opening with the haunting "Night of the Hunter" to belting out a string of hits including "Attack", "The Kill", and "Kings and Queens", among others, Leto commanded the stage and mesmerized the audience with all of the flair and theatrics you would expect from a Hollywood mainstay.
Opening for 30 Seconds to Mars was the Grammy-nominated quartet from New Orleans, Mute Math, a band quickly becoming known for their chaotic and electric stage performances.

Having worked for the likes of Adidas, Vice Magazine and Sony BMG and on projects such as their ‘remix’ of Anton Corbijn’s cover for Depeche Mode’s latest album, Hvass&Hannibal (otherwise known as Sofie Hannibal and Nan Na Hvass) have been producing only the highest quality work from their Copenhagen design studio since 2006. We’re in love with their soft, sensitive use of pastel shades and the delightful intricacies of their artwork, their playful approach to illustration and the sheer originality of their compositions.
With a show currently running (until 27th February) at Shoreditch’s Kemistry Gallery, inspired by the collation and sorting of random data sources, this is a chance to witness the hypnotising beauty of their work first hand… and to bag yourself some rather splendid limited edition screenprints and wooden sculptures.

EBay hopes to reshape its image from a place for last-chance clothes, to the first place fashion-savvy buyers look.
Beginning next week, eBay, the world’s largest clothing seller, will begin what they hope will be the first steps towards becoming the go to website for designer clothing. Although primarily known for selling used clothes, eBay is hoping to change that image by launching a new section designed to compete with the slew of other websites offering designer label clothes at deep discounts.
The new site, fashion.ebay.com, will be aimed at a more designer-friendly crowd, rather than the typical wBay clothing shopper that is scanning through thousands of pages of used clothes. A redesigned interface with a better search engine, gallery views, and easier navigation will help, but eBay is hoping that their new deals with designers such as Brooks Brothers and Hugo Boss will bring in the new shoppers that tend to not consider eBay for their clothing. The new site design also continues the change from strictly an auction house, to a site more akin to private and discount sales, rather than the typical auctions eBay is famous for.
EBay has been working behind the scenes in the fashion world, signing contracts with retailers like Boss and shoe maker Aldo to secure new and discounted stock for their new site. With both new and used clothing for all levels of clothing shoppers, from the guy looking for a pair of jeans, to the person looking for an Armani suit, eBay is hoping to win back some of the revenue that is going to fledgling online shopping websites like gilt.com, and Web giant Amazon.com.
The real question will be whether they can overcome their own image as a place for second hand clothing. But this new site is just the first step for eBay, which is looking for a bigger piece of the lucrative online clothing market. According to the Associated Press, eBay, which sold $7.1 billion in clothing last year, intends to launch an outlet store later this spring to offer 10 million clothing shoppers more options, including some exclusive fashions.
The launch caps off a string of good news for eBay. Earlier this week, the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals decision to uphold a ruling in favor of EBay against Tiffany & Co. over the sale of counterfeit goods. The lawsuit claimed that eBay knowingly allowed the sale of counterfeit goods on their website and did not do enough to stop the sales.

and I are concerned, it should be. April was our sixth issue and as
lucky as the dawn of Spring; a time of new beginnings for everything.
With visions in bloom we've continued to surprise ourselves. Winter
has escaped the scene and summer is shining through; this tiny switch
of seasons works miracles on our Miami minds. It illuminates the
culture of our city and the bronze in our skin, ultimately inspiring
the the thoughts that we think. This issue was the kickoff of great
things to come and we celebrated this release like all-stars at Blue
Martini in Brickell. Family, friends and supporters shared the fun
night with a toast to the good life. May the good times keep rolling
and the creative juices keep flowing!
