Row NYC Making you feel brand new featured
Nike X158 Nature, amplified

When Nike spread the word that they were opening a concept store to act as ground zero for their new #NatureAmplified design ethos, people were expecting something special. They weren’t disappointed as X158 opened its doors to reveal this stark, minimal, bunker-style store-space that oozes stripped-down urban cool.

It’s the sneakers not the surrounds, though, that are placed firmly front and center here. The exposed breeze block walls, industrial lighting installations and surgical display apparati play the ultimate austere supporting act for Nike’s brand-spanking new line of colorful kicks—many incorporating the latest advances in Flyknit technology.

If you think the buck stops at forward-thinking footwear, though, think again. X158 also plays host to a number of creative mixed-media installations that complement the innovative apparel on show.

New World Hotel Redefining the rooftop

A plush springboard to launch you headlong into the heart of Shanghai, the New World Hotel brings a little 21st century oriental hospitality to the city’s centre. Accessible through a monumental square marble-pillared and sleek pagoda-roofed entryway, the hotel is a 605-room behemoth where function, comfort and class combine. The communal spaces are high-ceilinged and spacious, with polished marble floors, art-splattered walls and sleek modern furniture all screaming sleek austerity. The warmly-lit suites, meanwhile, provide the perfect counterpoint—kitted out with cloud-like beds, stylish minimalist furniture and fittings awash with soft wooden hues. And if you’re on the hunt for a spot to stave off the summer heat with a swim, New World boasts one of the city’s best—their swish rooftop pool is guaranteed to add some ‘oohs’ to the relaxed ‘aahs’ with its epic views across the sprawling cityscape.
