Paris NO-MOTOR Show 2016 //

頑張って、寝ないで下さい!

A friend, Editor in Chief of couple of car magazines posted on his facebook as 'RIP Paris Motorshow (1898-2016)'

It's true.

Ford, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini and Volvo didn't even bother to show up.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_1.jpg

EMPTY!!!!

It's like going to an Haute-Couture show and presented GAP (not that I have anything against this brand).

Here's the highlight... works better than your sleeping pills tonight...

Honda Civic Type R

Citroen C3 WRC

La Ferrari Aperta

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6... long is the new black.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_6.png

Audi Q5 - but it comes with an electric scooter. Amazing.

Are you still awake??

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_7.png

Toyota FCV Plus Concept - Toyota has been loyal to this design and colour scheme for a few years now. When does futuristic become passé? (I am being as polite as possible. Please note Toyota, I am a customer!)

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_8.jpg

NEW Porsche Panamera. Wow.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_9.jpg

Suzuki Ignis

EV Renault Trezor - what happens when there's a rain storm?

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_11.jpg

Land Rover Discovery - is it my imagination but is this render very out of proportion?

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_19.jpg

New Nissan Micra - a HUGE improvement on the last one.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_13.jpg

Hyundai RN30 - the Koreans have been showcasing more innovative stuff year on year.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_14.jpg

BMW X2

I'm certain I have hypnotised my audience into a coma...

I think the anticipation of the press conference and car covers were more exhilarating this year.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_15.jpg

Clearly, Peugeot have budget issues this year.

ikuzawa_paris_motor_show_2016_18.jpg

The BEST IN SHOW for Paris Motor Show 2016 goes to the car cover of Citroen!

What do kids idolize now?

Maybe I should stop being sarcastic, perhaps this is all amazing, and it's my personal taste that doesn't suit the current trend in car design.
I would love to hear your opinion...

ちょっと寂しかったですね。


Goodwood Revival 2016 //

The Goodwood Revival is always such a delight every year. The event production is impeccable to the finest details and everyone is welcome,
where aristocrats and F1 legends will mingle shoulder to shoulder with the 'working class' and touch a 1960 Ferrari 246S Dino or watch bumper to bumper racing of fifty Ford GT40s. The British car culture is the best in the world, you could never recreate this vibe anywhere else.

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_1.JPG

The warm welcome at the gates. You are obliged to dress in post-war 1940's, 50's, 60's to attend. If you don't have anything to wear, there are plenty of period stalls at the venue.

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_2.JPG

Usually, I attend with focus on cars...

Goodwood Revival 2015

But this year, something different...

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_3.JPG

Here is Earl of March of Goodwood. He has always been so kind to support my passion for racing for years.
This year he threw me a very challenging task of judging the Spirit of Aviation concours d'elegance steering me away from the car paddocks onto the airfield!

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_4.JPG

At the Pilots' Club for the debriefing for the judges. Very serious. Judges include some serious heavyweights including Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton GCB, ADC, John Simpson BBC News' World Affairs Editor, Air Marshal Air Christopher Harper KBE former Director General of NATO, Sir Ralph Robins former CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Stephen Bailey the British Design & Culture critic and me!!

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_5.JPG

1942 DC-53-DO Dakota - the first significant modern airliner in the world. Stunning metal riveting. I never knew Norway was so advanced in aviation.

Clipboards ready!

1933 de Havilland DH84 Dragon - I love the retro angular design. Like a caravan with wings!

The engineering, design, and agility is on another level, but it's not easy to forget they were used in battles which killed and destroyed.

The cockpit detail of the winner of the 'Goodwood Freddie March Spirit of Aviation' - 1934 De Havilland DH83 Fox Moth. A simple rugged light aircraft with the most luxurious leather-bound passenger cabin hidden in the front. Here is a photo showing the the window from the cockpit to the cabin. The paradox was just brilliant. It's difficult to explain why from this photo, but if you ever get the chance to Google it please do (or ask me!)

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_21.JPG

Lunch break - I bump into my boys. The fashion royalty, Nick Ashley (son of Laura Ashley and former Creative Director of Dunhill. He has also been pioneering the most brilliant men's clothing for decades), and Camille Jaccoux of Black Crows skis.

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_22.JPG

And to the Race Control Tower which is strictly by invitations only to Charles March's close friends and family has been transformed this year!

ikuzawa_goodwoodrevival_2016_23.JPG

Tea time.

Watching the races with Jacky Ickx the legend - 6 times winner of Le Mans 24 Hours amongst other great achievements.

Chicken or Beef sir?

Finally, I have recently been fortunate enough to help the very talented boys at Blackbird Automotive produce the stunning limited edition for Goodwood Festival of Speed 'Full-Throttle'. There will be a Revival edition to soon follow. Watch this space...


I HATE CAR (COLLECTORS) //

This 1995 Porsche 993 GT2 just sold for £1.8 MILLION at RM Sotheby's Auctions in London today.

ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!!!!!!!
The world has gone totally and utterly mad.

It makes me so sad that fun has been taken out of cars.
They have just become rich people's furniture stored in vast storages the size of their egos.

What are cars for exactly?
At this price, you know that the stupid buyer will not be hitting any apexes with a smile.

FRAGMENT SCHOOL BAG //

Hiroshi Fujiwara is not only the 'Godfather of Streetwear' but most importantly the Godfather to my son, Arto.
It was so important to have a Godfather who will be a mentor, the uncle who would play a role in shaping the interests of our son.

BUT, also, sometimes, uncle Hiroshi is just too cool and makes a totally limited edition Fragment School Bag for Arto!! NOT FOR SALE

Thank you Hiroshi.

藤原ヒロシさんは、ストリートウェアのゴッドファーザーと言われてますが、私の息子のゴッドファーザーでもあります!
今回、ロンドンでとてもスゴイものを頂きました。。。限定の中の限定 Fragment スクールバッグを作ってくれました。売り物ではありません。

ヒロシさんどうもありがとう。
