Diesel Sneakers – Not for running…

but great for kicking asses. Lol. I like that they embraced the fact that they’re not performance shoes, but merely fashion accessories. It certainly does have that argentinian humor to it (since it was made by Santo). Check it:

Uxua Hotel in Trancoso, Brasil



This hotel (or more like a bed & breakfast) is basically 3 renovated fishing houses. It was conceived by Wilbert Das, the Dutch creative director of Diesel. Story goes that he always spends his vacations in Bahia, and I guess he just decided that building a nice boutique hotel there would be a good idea. It is located in Trancoso, and it’s definitely in my plans when I go back to Brasil this year.
