Coca Cola x PLAY Comme des Garcons Concept

An interesting concept has surfaced this week. A prospective packaging design created by a Parsons design student, Ashley Shen, of a limited edition collaboration project between Coca Cola with one of Comme des Garcons's line, PLAY. There are no official word from both Coca Cola or Comme des Garcons PLAY (Do they even know about this design concept?) about whether this project will come true or not, but, just like everybody else, i also wish that this will come true in the near future.

La Creperie de Hampstead


On January, me (with my girlfriend & my sister) had a chance to visit one of my dream destination, the city of London. While we were there, we went to this town, Hampstead, cause our friend told us to try the famous Crepe there. A little bit hard to find, since the crepe place is just a little kiosk / stand.

But don't judge a book by its cover. Almost everybody on the town knows this famous little crepe stand. For your information, this little crepe stand is actually have been in the business for over than 30 years. The reason? yeah the information of how great their crepe is no bullshit. It was by far, one of the best crepe i have ever tasted (the crepe suzette). The crepes speaks for itself, the queuing never ends.

So if you are in London, don't forget to stop by at Hampstead area, and stop over this amazing crepe stand, La Creperie de Hampstead. Just ask around, they will lead you to the kiosk.

Thank you Bianca for recommended the place!
