The shoes were tiny, brightly colored, embroidered with flowers and birds, and embellished with metallic thread. Interior designer Noz Nozawa’s client had a collection of them proudly displayed on the fireplace mantel of her San Francisco home. But why would baby shoes have heels? “That’s what’s so horrifying,” says Nozawa. “If you didn’t know what you were looking at, they look like fancy little Asian baby’s shoes.”

She realized that her client, who is white, was a collector of lotus shoes, used for the Chinese practice of footbinding, which lasted for 1,000 years. “It’s a relic of a past time that wasn’t expressly meant to oppress and mutilate women, but that’s exactly what it did,” Nozawa says. She left them out when she photographed the home for her portfolio.

Prada Moving on Up

MILAN — Patrizio Bertelli sees a further shift into luxury for Prada.

The chief executive officer of the Italian luxury group has been spearheading a no-markdowns policy and slashing wholesale accounts since last year, but he spelled out his aspirations to further raise the profile of the brand during a conference call with analysts on Wednesday, commenting on first half results.

“We have been thinking of the product positioning, and, as costs have increased, it would have been folly not to implement a minimum raise of our prices,” said Bertelli, speaking from the group’s Valvigna plant in Tuscany. Other luxury brands, such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton, also hiked their prices this spring in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Bertelli characterized the move as “a scientific exercise” and not across the board.

“I want to make it clear once and for all, there have been no markdowns and

Everything I Learned In My Quest For a Better Work-From-Home Chair

It’s week who-knows-when of the COVID-19 outbreak here in the U.S., and one thing has become painfully apparent as I continue to work from home: My back hurts. A lot. And if you’re also lucky enough to be able to work remotely, chances are, yours does too. An online search for “lockdown back pain” turns up a slew of complaints from people looking for relief, stretching tips, and what many view as a silver bullet solution: a comfy new chair to help cure what ails them. But will a new throne really help your back, or is your spine simply asking you to give it a break? To find out, I took stock of my own seating arrangement, considered the alternatives, and learned how terrible my choice was for my aching body.

My chair, which uses bungee cables as the back support and which I purchased at a steep discount

The Baby Yoda craze doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, which is great, because we weren’t ready to give it up. The latest item we’re ready to add to our Star Wars collection are The Child Tiki Mini Muglets that have just became available online.

Back in March, Toynk released a Baby Yoda Tiki Mug for preorder that officially became available last month. Now there are tiny green versions that make for the perfect shot glass. The 2.5-ounce mini muglets come in a pack of three, each with a different design. All of them feature The Child wearing its iconic coat and scarf, but one is holding a frog, another has its eyes shut, and the last is just the adorable creature in all its glory.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant that face masks and coverings will become part of daily life.

The UK government and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have both advised wearing face coverings in a bid to reduce the infection transmission of Covid-19.

As of 24 July, face coverings are mandatory in all shops and supermarkets in England. These rules also extend to indoor shopping centres, banks, and post offices. People who don’t wear one will face a fine of up to £100, apart from people with medical conditions and children under 11.

If you’re picking up a takeaway coffee or food in England, you’ll also have to wear a mask, but this rule doesn’t apply to sit-in meals. The Northern Ireland secretary, Brandon Lewis, confirmed: “If you’re going in to buy a

Like so many other things, Engadget’s annual trip to Las Vegas will skip a year as CES 2021’s in-person element is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. As CTA Chief Gary Shapiro said in a statement: “It’s just not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January.”

CES 2020

David J Babb

Now, CES will be presented as an experience that we live through from home. Unfortunately, some things just won’t be the same. Events like surprise android appearances and disinterested movie directors flubbing their lines are you-have-to-be-there moments, and Zoom can’t quite cut it. We’ll see if the organizers have something up their sleeve to bring the feeling of the Las Vegas Convention Center home — minus all the germs and annual flu-like symptoms. The CTA made the right call.
