It was just three months ago when C+T talked about one of Lower East Side's most hip additions to Manhattan: The Ludlow. Now the brick-clad hotel is back, channeling its rock n’ roll roots to unleash its new vibrant 1,500 square feet Penthouse suite upon guests who know how to work a proper party in style.

The glamorous 1950s cat-eye sunglasses are enjoying their time in the sun again and are making a huge comeback in summer 2015.

For a cool, contemporary retro feel, you could invest in Illesteva's cat-eye 'Boca' sunglasses, which blend black acetate at the top with tortoiseshell trims at the bottom and also come in greenish horn.

Benjamin Walker has been trying to break through to stardom and is having a bloody hard time of it. The 33-year-old actor came to the fore in the title role of “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” — the 2011 Broadway musical satire about the president whose place on the $20 bill is now imperiled — and then starred in the film flop “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.”

Now the carnage is much sleeker, label-conscious, and contemporary:  Walker has been cast as the homicidal but impeccably dressed Patrick Bateman, a stockbroker who epitomizes the soulless ’80s, in the new Broadway musical “American Psycho,” based on Brett Easton Ellis’s 1992 nihilistic novel.

New Canaan is a far cry from Tokyo, but the distance hasn’t stopped a small coterie of Japan’s leading cultural luminaries from intermittently decamping to Connecticut. Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, the principals of Pritzker Prize-winning architecture firm SANAA, are often on site in the small town located an hour’s drive from New York City, supervising the construction of their latest North American project — dubbed “The River” — at Grace Farms. The duo won the commission to create a large-scale, multi-use complex there in 2010, and shortly thereafter brought Yuko Hasegawa, chief curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, to the attention of their client. Sharon Prince, the president of the non-profit Grace Farms Foundation, hired her too. Hasegawa is now finalizing a series of commissioned artworks for the October 9 inauguration of Grace Farms that includes new pieces by Thomas Demand, Susan Philipsz, Teresita Fernandez, and Olafur Eliasson. Another site-specific artwork by Beatriz Mihalzes is planned for spring 2016.
Grace Farms, a swath of land in New Canaan, Connecticut, will host a large-scale complex designed by the architecture firm SANAA to be used as a cultural and spiritual center.

Shigeru Ban has been commissioned to design a mixed-used residential and office project in London for his first-ever project in the United Kingdom on an "eyesore" site next to London's City Hall.

Ban was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2014 for his use of recycled cardboard tubes to create emergency shelters for disaster victims. For this project he will work with Waugh Thistleton, specialized in cross laminated timber, on a scheme for private developer John Curran at Potters Fields near Tower Bridge.

July 24 marked five years to the day before Tokyo becomes the world’s stage, for the Olympics 2020. A suitable date then, to release the design for the Olympic logo, which has been designed by Kenjiro Sano. Like the release of the London Olympic logo though, the reaction on social media has been somewhat mixed.
Five years to the day and counting until it opens, Kenjiro Sano’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics logo is revealed.

Combining subtlety and unabashed grandeur, Ida Applebroog’s latest exhibition at Hauser & Wirth is a complex endeavor in an increasingly univocal art world. The largely new works in “The Ethics of Desire” (through July 31), comprising enormous ink-on-Mylar paintings of larger-than-life nude models, beautifully and meticulously painted folding chairs, video, and detailed shadow puppets, coalesce Applebroog’s decades-long practice. This show is wonderfully overwhelming and awash with conceptual and art historical import. Central to Applebroog’s project is a rethinking of our relationship to bodies as they are portrayed in the media. Reminiscent of her Modern Olympia (After Versace), 1997–2001, one in a series of tongue-in-cheek, meticulously drawn reworkings of Manet’s famed prostitute, “The Ethics of Desire” provides a crucial lens with which to consider these corporeal politics that are so necessary to current feminist debates.

Whether you like them with stiletto heels to raise your profile at a gallery opening or prefer flats to walk comfortably around an art fair, sandals are all about making an arty statement this summer.

Top of our list are Charlotte Olympia’s artistic creations which run the gamut of art movements. Her 'Two-Faced' suede sandals with a woman’s profile on either side of the wedge provide a strong surrealist edge, while her 'Mosaic' sandals with patchwork shades of sky-blue, purple, coral, and yellow offer a modernist art feel.
