KO Média is excited to unveil the Fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada, featuring a glimpse of designer Suzanne Dimma’s eco-conscious cottage in Ontario’s Haliburton County. Accessible by water, Dimma’s refuge in the wild is a warm, uncomplicated, relaxed cocoon where nature is the main source of inspiration. “Creating a connection, a conversation with one’s surroundings, is of the utmost importance,” says the designer. With a focus on wood in all its glory, plus a palette of stone greys and sky blues, Dimma honors the notion of the summer cabin—once the final resting place of that old family sofa—into a new, stylish, year-round living space.
The Fall issue will also introduce readers to another great lover of nature, architect Maxime Frappier, who has rooted his family life in a minimalist glass home amid the forests of Lanaudière, Quebec. Further afield, in the outskirts of Milan, Dutch architect Geert Koster demonstrates how to combine solitude with socializing in a contemporary, sustainable home inspired by the region’s traditional stables. Also in Italy, artist and sculptor Othmar Prenner has crafted an Alpine cabin in the Lunga Valley whose unique design features have got to be seen to be believed.
In keeping with the theme of nature, this issue is an ode to wood in décor, art and home life. We deep-dive into West Coast sculptor Neshka Krusche, who gathers, cinges and shapes cedar logs to make stunningeco-driven art. Readers with kids will also enjoy our list of the latest, greatest and most handsome wooden toys, guaranteed to add natural flair to their rumpus rooms. We also discover a game-changing 1952 design with a spotlight on Danish designer Arne Jacobson’s Ant chair.
Finally, in décor we turn to two Canadian gallerists for tips on purchasing (and displaying) art, share our latest favourite Canadian lighting designs and catch up with experts in the carpet industry to get their opinions on the season’s most exciting underfoot looks. We also explore a new kind of online space for vintage design collecting.
The Little Car Company is excited to announce that the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is on permanent display at Selfridges’ flagship department store, in London. In partnership with the luxury Oxford Street store, The Little Car Company’s limited-edition vehicle is on show for all shoppers to see up close.
Presented on its own unique display installation in the Technology department on the lower ground floor, the Testa Rossa J is exhibited in a beautiful historic paint scheme incorporating an Argento Nurburgring (Silver) body, with a Rosso Mugello (Red) livery, which takes up to 160 hours to complete by hand. Inside, the car is exquisitely trimmed in Bordeaux leather, from the same tanneries that supply Ferrari for their current road cars, featuring black piping and tone on tone stitching.
Strictly limited to 299 vehicles, Ferrari has led every aspect of the project, in collaboration with The Little Car Company, a UK-based firm specialising in the production of electric scaled cars. Developed and handcrafted from the original drawings held by Ferrari Classiche, with design oversight from Ferrari’s Centro Stile, the intricate chassis of the 250 Testa Rossa was scanned and digitally recreated before being scaled down 25%.
Visitors to Selfridges can view the 75% scale vehicle up close and use the material sample pod to view a selection of the many vehicles’ leather and paint samples. Ferrari’s Classiche department carried out extensive research into all the liveries that have adorned the 250 Testa Rossa throughout its racing career, allowing prospective clients to choose from 14 historical liveries, 53 bodywork colours and additional personalised racing liveries, all authentically in keeping with Ferrari style.
Shoppers can enquire with one of the store’s friendly sales team about reserving an exclusive build slot on the Ferrari Testa Rossa J, as well as any of The Little Car Company’s other products.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said: “We are thrilled and extremely proud to launch our very own display at Selfridges’ iconic flagship store, on Oxford Street.
“To have the car on display for all visitors to see, with the stamp of approval from one of the world’s most celebrated luxury department stores, is a huge privilege. This collaboration demonstrates the remarkable quality that the Ferrari Testa Rossa J exhibits, and the phenomenal level of detail that goes into every car we handcraft.”
On every element of the Testa Rossa J, Ferrari and The Little Car Company have ensured the product is as true to the original car as possible. The steering wheel is supplied by Nardi, makers of the original steering wheel, and the same steering and suspension geometry have been replicated, giving the electric car authentic handling. The body is also made of hand-formed aluminium, which goes through the same process used on the 250 Testa Rossa.
As a nod to the current generation of road cars, the paint is the same as that applied to Ferrari’s current range of cars, as is the front badge. The pedals are from the F8 Tributo and the tyres are supplied by Pirelli, Ferrari’s official technical partner, fitted on the handmade 12-inch wire wheels. Next to the repurposed instruments on the vehicle’s interior dashboard – which now show battery temperature and charge level dials – is a beautifully designed Manettino, inspired by that used in the Ferrari 812 Superfast, allowing the driver to change the driving mode of the car.
To cater for drivers of all ages and abilities, four driving modes have been carefully developed to make the driving experience as safe as possible:
• NOVICE MODE: 1kW / 24 km/h
• COMFORT MODE: 4kW / 40 km/h
• SPORT MODE: 10 kW / 80 km/h
• RACE MODE: 12kW / 80 km/h
The three batteries powering the electric engine are positioned at the front of the car, and provide approximately 90 km range, depending on driving style.

Today, an all-new Spider-Hero story kicks off in SPIDER-VERSE UNLIMITED INFINITY COMIC #15. The first issue in the six story arc is now available on Marvel Unlimited in the exclusive Infinity Comics format.
On writing the new story arc, creator J. Holtham says, “I love Miles because Miles is, well, me. I was an awkward Black kid, originally from Brooklyn, living in New Jersey and desperately wishing I had super-powers. Writing for Miles is a real full circle moment for me. I love his determination, his optimism, his big heart. That’s what makes it fun.”
As for the school-life balance Miles is trying to maintain, J. Holtham says, “With both of these story arcs, we’re exploring exactly that: How does Miles balance his hero life with his academic ambitions? Which one is more important? Which one defines who he really is? Being a teenager is such a time of change and development, and when you add battling Super Villains on top of that, it’s kind of a lot. Finding that balance is the heart of the story.”
Miles Morales was excited to attend Einstein College’s program for gifted high schoolers. But now his new friends have glowing eyes and are hunting him like prey, and his old friend Ms. Marvel has become his enemy. Can this day get any worse?

This December, the two most famous wronged clones of the Marvel Universe will team up to take back what’s theirs! Madelyne Pryor, AKA the Goblin Queen, and Ben Reilly, now known as Chasm, will reignite an Inferno that will send Spider-Man and the X-Men into a spiral in DARK WEB! And they won’t be the only ones feeling the flames of Maddie and Ben’s revenge! In addition to the launch of the opening one-shot, December will bring on a series of tie-in issues and limited series and fans can get the full scoop right now!
The saga will be bookended by two one-shots, subtitled DUSK and DAWN, written by current Amazing Spider-Man scribe Zeb Wells and drawn by superstar artist Adam Kubert. DARK WEB #1 will reveal the true scope of Madelyne and Ben’s wicked alliance, what it means for Spider-Man and the X-Men, and the surprising role Venom will play. The sun is setting, dusk is approaching, and it’s going to be a long night.
Zeb Wells will continue the story in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #15 and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #16 with legendary artist Ed McGuinness. Peter Parker will have his hands full with back to back showdowns, starting with Venom. Find out exactly why Venom is helping Chasm and then, it’s time for the main event. That’s right, it’s Peter Parker vs. Ben Reilly, no-holds-barred in the craziest battle you’ve ever seen! Chasm secures his place in Spidey’s rogues’ gallery…as the one who finally vanquishes Peter Parker?!
December will also see the launch of DARK WEB: X-MEN, a three-issue limited series by X-Men writer Gerry Duggan and acclaimed New Mutants artist Rod Reis. In DARK WEB: X-MEN #1, chaos reigns in the streets of New York City as demon hordes pour forth from the realm of Limbo…a realm that until recently was ruled by Magik. A realm now ruled by Cyclops’ ex. Also, Havok’s ex. Also, a clone of Jean. The X-Men wade into the fray by taking on some of their darker history as the Goblin Queen returns for vengeance! The not-so-happy reunions continue in DARK WEB: X-MEN #2. Some reunions – like those with an evil ex who rules a dimension of demons – are not so great. Sometimes even having your AMAZING FRIENDS at your side isn’t enough to save things.
“You can’t go wrong with the X-Men and their Amazing Friend, Spider-Man. Limbo is attacking NY and threatening to ruin the holidays. Come for the Inferno, stay for Rod Reis!” Duggan told ComicBook.com.
Currently a supporting character in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel will also have a significant story arc during the event in her own limited series, DARK WEB: MS. MARVEL. From Sabir Pirzada, known for his work on Marvel’s Voices and Ms. Marvel on Disney+, and artist Francesco Mortarino in his exciting Marvel Comics debut comes a bold and badass new vision of Ms. Marvel! Fresh off her first few weeks working as an intern at Oscorp, Ms. Marvel finds herself as the last line of defense against a bunch of deadly and dangerous experiments going haywire thanks to Maddie and Ben’s demonic machinations! Things get even worse when Kamala finds herself in Limbo, with no choice but to fight her way out!
“I could not be more thrilled to return to Kamala’s world after writing her in Marvel’s Voices: Identity and getting a chance to help introduce her to the small screen on Disney+,” Pirzada told Newsarama. “This time around, Kamala’s facing a new challenge: the dangers of Limbo! And a few familiar faces – friends and foes – are bound to make some surprise appearances on this adventure!”
In Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch’s VENOM #14, secrets are revealed! Madeylne Pryor has plans for Eddie Brock and the symbiotes he can control – in this issue, she and her new ally CHASM bring them all to bear! Unwittingly turned into a slathering and terrifying monster you might recognize, Eddie Brock’s fears from the last year stand fully realized in this turning point for Al Ewing, Ram V, and Bryan Hitch’s enthralling run on the title!
Writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Lan Medina continue to explore Norman Osborn’s heroic journey in GOLD GOBLIN #2. The thought-provoking limited series will prove that being a super hero isn’t for everyone… After facing Chasm in DARK WEB #1, Norman Osborn will have to face another terrifying opponent in this issue who might cut Norman’s new super hero career short!
Announced last month, two of the greatest loves of Peter Parker’s life are in for a DARK WEB adventure of their own in MARY JANE & BLACK CAT. After taking the character of Black Cat on a whirlwind of adventures in recent years in back-to-back solo series and the current IRON CAT limited series, Jed MacKay will now continue his transformative work on Marvel’s premier super thief and this time, he’s taken MJ along for the ride! MacKay will be joined by artist Vincenzo Carratù—an up-and-coming talent making his exciting Marvel Comics debut. In this explosive and kick-ass limited series, Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy find themselves thrown into one another’s paths and then into LIMBO! But SOMETHING HAS CHANGED WITH MJ! And she’s not the only one keeping secrets – Felicia’s got a guilty conscience and it’s playing havoc with their escape plan!

Bags, sunglasses, hats, and beach blankets make up the exclusive local product offers, while the ready-to-wear and shoes will be available across all resort locations as well as on Gucci.com.

The cities featured within the collection include Bondi, Bodrum, Cancun, Cannes, Capri, Dubai, Forte dei Marmi, the Hamptons, Hawaii, Ibiza, Jeju, Marbella, Miami, Monte Carlo, Mykonos, Okinawa, Palm Desert, Porto Cervo, Phuket, and Rio de Janeiro.

To present the product selection in a surreal and playful way, photographer and director Max Siedentopf has captured a campaign where the Gucci Resort pieces take on monumental status in mini dioramas of the various resort destinations.
