Design Icons: Meet Charles & Ray Eames

Posted by Daniel Okorn, 3 years ago

In our first design icon post, we decided to begin with one of the most prolific and important North American mid-century modern design duos of all time, Charles and Ray Eames. Known for their celebrated furniture designed for the Michigan-based manufacturer Herman Miller, the husband and wife team believed that design is not for the elite, but for the masses.

Style Icon: Nick Wooster

Posted by Drake General Store, 3 years ago

“There are no absolutes. For every rule there is, it’s made to be broken and if you have style you can wear anything you want.” – Nick Wooster

That’s easy for ‘The Woost’ to say. This fashion week fixture + previous Men’s Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman embodies impeccable taste. With his handlebar moustache, tattoo sleeves + dandy style, Nick Wooster has been dubbed the “street style demi-god”, making photogs rush to capture his every (amazing!) look. What makes Wooster’s style so inspirational + ionic you ask? It comes down to his ability to mash prints, colours + proportions with the utmost of restraint. The result is always an undeniably cool look, which frankly would leave the average person walking around looking like a fool.

There are certain smells that always remind us of summer. Freshly cut grass, sunscreen, a smoldering campfire, and of course a grill going on the BBQ. Our head chef at the Drake Hotel gets in the summer mood with this recipe for the perfect hotdog.
