Be it in a New York bus stop, a centerfold of a print publication or on screen, Calvin Klein has always managed to present its brand in an engaging and relevant way.

Continuing with the polished and desaturated appeal we’ve come to expect from the contemporary label, the nearly ten minute film which also includes Suvi Koponen follows a thematic series of suspenseful, yet visually stunning scenes.

Something I have always loved about Fall/Winter collections, is layer’s. Layer’s, Layer’s and more layer’s. Many looks in Fall/Winter collection usually consist of several pieces. Rather than just one item or perhaps two. I loved the Fendi Fall 2013 Menswear collection this year. From the very beginning of the collection to the very end, I completely adored this Fendi Fall Menswear show. Giving off a very masculine yet sophisticated men’s look this year by the Italian Fashion House we all love. Focused on rather dark colors, I loved the fabrics amongst the entire collection, silks, cottons and my favorite, fur. Enjoy.

There's not much else to add, really, except that the tank can accommodate at least 650 gallons of water, and that former NFL player Chad Ochocinco is rumored to have had one installed in his room. See how the bed looks like in action (keep your mind out of the gutter, please) after the jump. [Watch More]

The Emporio Armani menswear collection for next winter is upbeat. More than for the young, the second line collection is in itself young. The winter style is "very, very Armani," the designer told reporters after the show held in his modern downtown Milan headquarters. The collection's trump card is selecting iconic styles from the male wardrobe — an overcoat, a pea jacket, or a tuxedo — and refashioning them in the latest high-tech materials. Enjoy.
