Where fashion ends & lifestyle begins is a line becoming ever more blurred. In July, the Sixty Group will unveil their $20 million renovation - the Sixty Hotel - located in Riccione on Italy's Adriatic coast.
"I tried to make a hotel that would attract guests to come here and hang out," Sixty co-owner Wichy Hassan recently told WWD about the hipster haven which features egg-shaped windows, walls with light panels, and groovy furnishings. "It seems to me that hotels today are rather boring." The antidote, apparently, includes webcams in every room, brightly colored walls and furniture, and rooms individually designed and decorated - and in some cases graffiti'd & stenciled - by 30 young artists. If this one goes swimmingly, another six may open over the next three years in cities like Barcelona, Dubai and Los Angeles. via WWD.

Dear Chief: My 20-year-old daughter is a slave to fashion, mindlessly following every trend. And with low-rise jeans, her butt is all over the place, receiving crude comments and undesirable ogling everywhere we go. Although the attention seems to bother her, she refuses to cover up. Please help me talk some sense into her. - Sincerely, Mother of a Crack Addict
How, Mother of Crack Addict: It’s sad to hear that an obviously fashion-forward girl has lost her fashion sense. However, Young Stylista, it gives The Chief great pleasure to report that the low-rise is out. Now, it's all about showing off your womanly figure in high-waisted - and most importantly - butt-covering jeans. Once the territory of the 300 year old biology teacher, high-waisted pants are back and better then ever. So have her toss the super low-slung hip huggers and usher in the New Age of the Risen Waist. Adios, Hillbilly Couture, and welcome back High-Class. Remember, Fancy Flirts, stick to the high road and your look will ace every time. Stay fabulous!
This Hugo Boss jacket is a bit more casual than you might expect. The washed leather material gives the coat a slightly rumpled look, and epaulettes, contrast twill trim at the pockets, and slight contrast stitching all give the jacket a sporty feel. It's a bit expensive, but it's currently on sale at and will live out its price through a rugged durability that will mature as you work this coat in. Available at eLuxury.com
