The heavily coveted time-keeper photographed by Steven Meisel

Pirelli has long been both the best in performance tires and the best in babilicious photography, its heavily coveted calendar dating back to 1964. Peaking in scandalousness in 2010 with the cheeky Terry Richardson-photographed edition, Pirelli did an about face the next couple years to go dignified with Karl Lagerfeld’s Mythology-fused edition in 2011, then classy with 2012’s Mario Sorrenti calendar and finally […]

Modernized 2-wheeler features replicated McQueen paintwork

Considered a modern reinterpretation of the classic all terrain scrambler, the Husqvarna Concept MOAB was recently showcased at the Milan Motorcycle Show.

Patrick Frey's half scarf / half calender creation
