The recent London College of Fashion Graduates and now decorated designers build off an up-scale aesthetic of everyday basics by simply transforming them: colorful printed textiles blocked onto clean silhouettes.

With that you have MIUNIKU, a Mumbai based brand bringing graphic, minimalist sophistication.

THE SCOOP: HENNESSY SIPPIN’

[columns_row width=”half”]

[column][dropcap letter=”T”]his isn’t just another cocktail recipe lowdown you’ll find on Pinterest, although the satisfaction we’re about to roll out for you is tremendously Pin-worthy. We were thirsty one day and low and behold, Hennessy V.S. stopped by The Clubhouse with a man that gives the name “mixology” a run for its money, Hennessy Brand Ambassador Jordan Bushell. It was only 12pm here in LA but it’s always 5 o’ clock somewhere, right? “Bars I enjoy in LA are Sadie, the Library Bar at The Thompson Hotel, the bar at the ACE Hotel and Pour Vous. I enjoy exploring LA, as there are so many cool little gems that pop up every time I’m here.[/column] [column]It’s an ever-changing city with many cool bars on the rise,” Bushell notes. As we gathered around our editing bay island turned mixology central like buzzing bumblebees to honey, he schooled us while quenching our thirst for a taste of the latest in summer ordering sessions at your favorite spots. He even made an LA CANVAS signature cocktail — it wasn’t long before we asked for seconds — and gave in willingly when asked how to make them on your own, how to order them at your favorite spot and when the perfect time would be to sip on these delectable drinking curations. Summer, your welcome:[/column] [/columns_row]
