Set to hit the auction block is this stunning 1956 Maserati 450S driven by the legendary English race car driver Stirling Moss when he competed in the 1956 Mille Miglia with navigator Dennis Jenkinson beside him. Originally built as a six-cylinder 350S and hastily prepared for the race, the car suffered serious damage when the brakes gave out and went off the road just outside of Rome. The car was restored to its current condition with factory consultation in 1987. It is slated to go on auction on May 10 at an RM Auctions event in Monaco and could fetch as much as €5.5 million EUR (approximately $7.5 million USD).

For this, BWD has applied a unique chocolate tone PVD coating, giving the Milgauss a never-before-seen look that manages to be both understated and eye-catching.

Melbourne-based Techne Architects found an innovative use for a series of concrete pipes when it was commissioned to renovate the Prahran Hotel, located in Victoria, Australia. The first two levels of the precast tubes house individual seating areas for the hotels pubs and are lined with planks of wood, adding a sense of warmth and intimacy, while giving the fitting appearance of stacked wine barrels when viewed from the outside. Techne also helped to bring together all the different spaces inside by installing a multipurpose atrium space made of glass and steel. This area serves to host larger groups and special events. Elsewhere, an abundance of lush greenery is used to add to the space’s organic ambiance.

Starting from trading cards to sneakers and beyond, surely this audience is familiar with how ostensibly small objects can form an entire subculture. Within these subcultures rest the ‘holy grail’ items – the Concords, the signed Mickey Mantles, etc. – rare and definitive pieces that set the standard for everything thereafter. In such watch collecting circles, there’s the Rolex “Paul Newman” Daytona, a rare series of watches produced between the mid 1960′s and early 1970′s, as chiseled and handsome a watch as the icon it shares its nickname with. Benjamyn Clymber and HODINKEE took the opportunity to speak with expert collector Andrew Shear, who walks us through the history of the watch’s production. An interesting piece altogether, immerse yourself in the Rolex Daytona niche marker with the above video.

Oft-controversial Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is set to make his way to Germany for his latest exhibition, “Evidence.” Appearing at Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau, “Evidence” is Ai Weiwei largest one-man exhibition yet – more than 3,000 square-meters stretched over 18 rooms will display a bevy of brand new works alongside a variety of pieces that have never been showcased in Germany. Undoubtedly the highlight of the exhibition will be Stools – an installation of 6,000 stools jam packed in the museum’s atrium.

Last summer, British fashion designer Paul Smith first revealed his Spring/Summer 2014 collection on the runways of Paris Fashion Week. There, the atmosphere was a blast from the past, with hairstyles all the way to the retro rock soundtrack reflecting a strong ’70s vibe. After much anticipation, the collection has finally arrived in-store.

Incorporating both traditional luxury couture and sportswear-inspired details, this latest men’s collection features a selection of sweaters, tailored jackets, trousers and shorts. The palette is unmistakably bright and ready for the season with yellow and salmon warming all the way up to hot pink while other items are marked by hazy psychedelic graphics and finely tuned patterns.
