The four-door convertible has been a design wonder for decades, having seen various automakers attempt their own version, but never make it past the “concept” stage. Premium Dutch carmaker, Savage Rivale ($TBA), takes on the elusive challenge and produces a futuristic model complete with a removable top. Rounding out the vehicle with a 7.0 liter V8 engine from a Corvette Z06 and an interior that would excite any tastemaker, the Roadyacht GTS is beautifully captured in the video above weaving through the streets of Monaco.

A cool company called BlackJet is looking to bring private aviation -- normally reserved for the ultra-wealthy -- to the masses. While BlackJet's mission is to democratize the world of private aviation, its backers are nothing short of A-list: actors Will Smith and Ashton Kutcher, 4-Hour Work Week author Tim Ferris and rapper Jay-Z. BlackJet's ultimate goal is to make hitching a ride on a private plane as easy as hailing a town car using Uber. The brand charges members a $2,500 annual fee, deferred for now until you book your first flight. (The membership code LSNEWSVIP gets you access to the site.) Enjoy.

If this holds up, we'll have our flying cars sooner than later: Samsung has announced that it will commence production of the world's first commercial "bendy", ultra-thin smartphones. The news add to rumblings in the technosphere that Samsung is also gearing up for the imminent reveal of what it calls an OLED display screen at next year's Consumer Electronics Show in January. Unlike your by-now ubiquitous LED screens, OLED displays actually generate their own light source. What this built-in luminosity means is designers can do away with glass entirely: an OLED screen can be made of just about anything, from metal foil to polymer plastic.

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.
