Chanel draws on arts and crafts to take its quilted bag travelling

In case you're wondering, all that construction at the old Star Ferry car park is not for a new building or government reclamation project. Instead, the funky concave structure is a unique, mobile contemporary art exhibition space for a luxury brand. The structure will eventually be a portable art pavilion designed by architect Zaha Hadid.

My Flair Lady

ORIGINAL AND FLAMBOYANT snugly fit into conversation when describing Chanel fashion shows. From swimming pools to barrage balloons and towering stairwells, the beauty and fashion giant never ceases to impress. But the sci-fi structure it has commissioned for its Mobile Art exhibition outshines them all.

Yoko Ono

Yes, I'm a Witch

(Astralwerks)

Either most of today's singers are so bad that Yoko Ono suddenly sounds good, or technology has become so good that Ono's once dreadful warblings somehow fit in. Whatever the case, this 17-track set is a diverse, infectious collection that's among the best of the year so far.

John Lennon

Imagine

(Apple)

Imagine is most famous for its title track - a simplistic paean that has become intrinsic to the fabric of modern life and its music. A call to arms for the peaceniks, its undergraduate lyrics united a world dealing with the failure to realise so many dreams of the previous decade.

Take bite of Big Apple

ANYONE who has ever watched television, seen a movie or tapped their foot to a pop-music rhythm - in other words, almost everyone - will feel a comfortable familiarity when visiting the United States.

Early Bird shows The Beatles up

DOCTOR Winston O'Boogie smirked to himself as he pulled a T-shirt out of his bag and slipped it over his head. Then he went out for a walk.

It was a bright morning in 1979, and Winston strolled out of the Mandarin hotel, took the Star Ferry over to Tsim Sha Tsui and strolled down the crowded, bustling shopping streets, free as a bird.
