Burger King Japan Black-Out Cheeseburger

Burger King Black Cheeseburger | The Style Raconteur

If Burger King Japan’s goal was to make a burger as unappetizing as possible, they succeeded. The all-black cheeseburger looks pretty cool, but we’re not so sure we’d want it traveling into our stomachs. They made the bun with bamboo charcoal to give it its Darth Vader-like appearance, and they did the same with the slice of cheese the patty gets topped with. To add to its mysterious motif, Burger King created an onion and garlic sauce concocted with squid ink to make sure it oozes evil when you bite down.

A Champagne Glass Has Been Designed Based on Kate Moss’s Left Breast

Kate Moss's Breast Champagne Glass | The Style Raconteur

f you thought you’d seen enough of Kate Moss – being that she’s in an unrelenting amount of fashion campaigns – prepare yourself to see a bit more of her. Although we’ve already seen her nude in a campaign for St. Tropez, and on the cover of LUI magazine, get ready to become acquainted with her left breast, as it’s just been used to design a champagne glass. London restaurant 34 has produced an extra-special glass designed after the supermodel’s left breast to celebrate her having spent 25 years in the industry. The modeling industry that is, not the champagne industry. Or the restaurant industry. The inspiration came from the legend that the first ever champagne coupe was based on Marie Antoinette’s left breast, so Moss is in good company. You can get your hands on it beginning in October at 34 and its sister restaurants The Club at The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s.

Blood Brother’s AW14 collection is its most luxurious so far – the signature butter soft leather pieces are combined to suede details, offering striking contrasts of matt and shiny. The seamless long lined bomber stands out as the ultimate sports luxe must-have with its beautiful finish. Soft alpaca jumpers are available in the collection’s dominant tons of black and red, while the selvedge denim is made from 13oz Japanese Kuroki. The injection of Kevlar gives the designs an innovative techy feel, which contrasts with other organic materials – the pony hair jacket is one of this season’s hero pieces.

These grown up designs and materials are then combined with details inspired by collectibles and sports – panini football stickers, trophies, scars – giving the collection a fun, playful twist. Building on the brand’s reputation for graphics, the key repeated eyes and roses prints are available on shirts and tops. Subtle sport themed embossments can be found on tops, offering an alternative to the brighter printed pieces. Available soon at Concept by Cruise & Van Mildert.
