HERE’S YOUR CORPORATE SYNERGY: When Nike bought old line shoemaker Cole Haan in 1988, many feared it would be an unholy union that would yield, um, less than desirable results. (High top wing tips! Cap toe cross trainers!) Fortunately, Nike let Cole Haan continue to do what it does best while later adding an unobtrusive, but certainly not unwelcome, feature to some of its shoes Air technology. Yes, the same bubble beneath your heel that keeps you comfortable during a game on the basketball court can now be had in a shoe you wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear to the Supreme Court. Where did such a hybrid come from? Start with the mind of Gordon Thompson, creative director at Cole Haan and former creative director at Nike. ‘You always saw this great innovation at Nike, but only regarding sport,” he says. “I wanted to see what we could do with some of those innovations if we applied them to more lifestyle oriented footwear.” In spite of all this corporate cooperation, however, the inspiration for shoes like these was far more personal. “I travel a ton and need a shoe that I can take a lot of different places,” Thompson explains. “I wish there was somesortof higher calling, but I really designed it for me and my friends.” And while we never disputed the contention of Fernando Lamas (via Billy Crystal) that “it is better to look good than to feel good,” we’re glad to know that some things let us do both. Leather boots ($298), laceups ($245), and loafers ($245) by Cole Haan. For store information seepage 208.
DESIGNER SKINS: For anyone who steps off the transatlantic with dark circles under his eyes, Prada offers a solution with its new one dose skin care
line. Just drop a couple of the tiny packets into your pocket, slip into the men’s room (please wait until the aircraft has come to a complete stop), and dab on a little lightening serum mixed with a drop of hydrating cream. You’ll come out looking fresh, and the stewardess you’ve been chatting up will be none the wiser.
NOT ENOUGH KNOTS: Just like our eighth grade science teacher always said, physics is all around us. Case in point The 85 Ways to Tie a Tie (Broadway, $17), due out this month. Cambridge educated physicists Thomas Fink and Yong Mao use a branch of mathematics known as the knot theory to describe how to loop a tie in every conceivable manner including a formula for finessing the perfect dimple.
NEW MACINTOSH OS: Yes, there are new colors for Apple’s iMacs, and the new G4 cube has got the design kids at Compaq, Dell, et al. scrambling for a new pad and pencil, but the real news at Apple is what’s going on behind the fancy packaging. Starting this fall, it will release its new operating system, OS X, to a public beta test (a way for computer and software companies to get the public’s reaction and suggestions one step before the final production version). Not just some incremental adjustment, OS X rejiggers the entire computing experience from the ground up, starting with a new user interface called Aqua, which makes your desktop so attractive that, according to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, “you want to lick it,” and continuing with the new core architecture, dubbed Darwin, that promises to make OS X equipped Macs virtually crashproof. If you’ve got any friends in the computing industry who work somewhere in the vicinity of, say, Redmond, Washington, don’t expect them home until late.
