Ne jamais croire le vendeur : petite check-list à utiliser sans modération Gentlemen, nous avons souvent écrit dans ces colonnes que l’une des premières règles à respecter lors de l’achat d’un costume en prêt-à-porter était de ne jamais croire le vendeur maison dont l’objectif est quasiment toujours moins de vous rendre élégant que de vous vendre soit les pièces les plus onéreuses de sa boutique, soit d’écouler un stock de pièces qui ne se vendent pas. Dans ce registre, les énormités auxquelles j’ai moi-même été confronté durant toutes ces années sont légion et il me faudrait un livre entier pour les consigner de manière exhaustive. Ceci étant dit, il convient tout de même de ne pas généraliser, car il existe aussi, fort heureusement, quelques bons professionnels qui font bien leur métier et qui peuvent être d’excellents conseillers, même s’ils sont, il faut bien l’avouer, assez rares.

Image of the Day: Aquarium Phonebooth - Food - GOOD - StumbleUpon Lighting designer Benoit Deseille and artist Benedetto Bufalino transformed this phone booth in Lyon, France, into an aquarium, as part of the city's annual Festival of Light. In an accompanying statement, the artists explain the inspiration behind the piece: With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically colored fish; an invitation to escape and travel. It's a creative way to transform disused infrastructure into an everyday source of wonder and beauty—or, if you're of a more pessimistic frame of mind, a vision of our climate-changed future. On top of that, there's something whimsically compelling about seeing tropical fish interacting with a phone: cross-species communication, anyone?
