Image by Brian Tamborello and Lo Nguyen Mini Mansions , the Beatlesque ‘super-group’ comprised of members of Last Shadow Puppets (itself a supergroup fronted by Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner), and Queens of the Stone Age, are celebrating a decade of existence this year. To properly fete the anniversary, an eagerly awaited new album is coming in July – and in the meantime, BlackBook premieres here the video for the deliciously titled new single “GummyBear.” Decidedly less dark, and less rock, respectively, than either of their direct ancestors, Mini Mansions rely more on lavish keyboards and electronics than guitars, and the drums and bass bring way more funk than might be expected from their respective histories.

One of those projects is the fittingly extravagant new Mandarin Oriental, Doha , located very much action-adjacent in the Msheireb Downtown area. Not just another standard issue luxury property, the David Collins Studio interiors nod to Qatari tradition and heritage, while at the same time hewing to MOHG’s vigorous devotion to uncluttered, contemporary style.
There’s something about snow; the wintery magic as sparkling crystalline masses fall, especially when approaching a welcoming resort. Fat, beautiful flakes greeted us as we pulled up the drive of Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, a warm ..
