The British Mad Men

Welcome to the debut of The Hour, the new BBC2 six-part drama set in mid-1950’s London. Although the show is being compared to a British Mad Men, we’re certain they would never want to be compared to another television show. Some similarities can be drawn though. First, it’s about the golden age of media, except this one is about the development of a weekly news show from the early days of TV broadcasting. The main lead is a handsome dark figure that’s also a “playah” with other women.  The Hour is a bit more of a political thriller writes The Luxe Chronicles — so set your TIVO’s and decide for yourself. In any case, we’re fans of a well styled cast dressed to the nines. 

Hot off the Presses

One of the visual treats when you walk into The Standard headquarters is the enormous body of work hung on the lobby walls. It’s a tour of iconic figures photographed at one of the four hotel properties. Our bet is that this body of work will accumulate into a beautiful retrospective to behold one day — a zeitgeist of the times, if you will.

Today we received a new print freshly snapped at The Standard, Downtown LA. It’s Christina Hendricks of the show Mad Men whom we all have a girly crush on. The portrait was photographed by Jeff Lipsky. Here is our receptionist Laura Moore letting us cop a peek at the print before she ships it to be framed.
