Summertime is here and there are so many places to go and things to see. If you are tired of using your camera phone to document your life we highly recommend the Diana F+ camera. The sunburst color of the camera will have others smiling as you take their picture. The best thing about the camera is the long exposure functionality that creates a dreamy and lo-fi quality to all your pics. Instagram eat your heart out. Available at Lomography.com for $79.20

It may come as a surprise, but the first thing you have to do upon arriving to Maison Martin Margiela’s new e-boutique, powered by Internet retailer YOOX Group, is click enter. Using an archetypal platform as its template, the website pays homage to the Internet of days past. Links in MS-DOS font might evoke nostalgia in the old-time Internet user, but Martin Margiela’s target audience includes all fashion lovers, code-savvy or not.

We’ve seen a lot of impressive things coming out of London Fashion Week this year, but perhaps one of the most impressive is the collaboration between yoox.com and The British Fashion Council. On their website, yoox.com has a department called YOOXYGEN, which since 2009 has been a place that features innovative, eco-friendly designers and products. This London Fashion Week, YOOXYGEN has showcased London’s Estethica designers on the site—all the more proof that environmentally sustainable materials and eco-friendly products are sweeping over London.
