The ‘F’ marquee represents the high performance division of vehicles engineered by Lexus. The 2019 Lexus GS F has earned its right through rigorous testing to bear the weight of the ‘F’ stamp of approval. It’s graceful design and superior performance are on par with the BMW M Models and Mercedes-AMG line.
The GS F is only in its third season, yet it’s overall traits are retro while still embodying Lexus’s luxurious appeal. The side profiles are simple – no excess vents or useless lines. At the front, there’s a gradual growth in aggressiveness which begins with fender cut-outs. The spindle grille is accompanied by two massive air ducts which lie beneath each Triple Beam LED headlamps. It has been masterfully carved to enhance aerodynamics with a 0.33 drag coefficient. The buttocks is the defining attribute on this sports sedan – clearly this car can deep squat. Reminiscent of its predecessors, however, this model has chrome quad exhaust pipes (diagonally stacked upon one another).
Our test model came well-equipped with the 10th Anniversary Package for an additional $5000 USD. It has several unique style upgrades inside and out. Only 100 units were produced in the United States. Exterior refinements include a matte Nebula Gray paint and 19” contrasting BBS 16-spoke wheels. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires come standard along side of painted blue Brembo calipers and ‘F’ logo puddle lights.
Up front are a 16-way power adjustable driver and a 5-way adjustable passenger ‘F’ performance race-inspired seats. They encase passengers comfortably and firmly. An ‘F’ Sport steering wheel with racing ergonomics elegantly compliment the cabin. There’s electric blue carbon fiber along the door panels and dash coupled with alcantara door trim and armrest. Futhermore, there’s a F 10th Anniversary Limited medallion affixed just right above the blue shift knob.
Unlike its competition, commonly turbocharging and supercharging their vehicles to boast extra power, Lexus decided to implant a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 in the GS. It outputs 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque. Although it’s not outpowering it’s German counterparts, it offers a nostalgic feel with balanced performance and predictability. Its force is distributed through an 8-speed automatic transmission that is best experienced in SportS+ mode. One should take advantage of the paddle shifters and row the gears through their more spirited ranges, 4800 RPM and above.
This car exemplifies it’s athletic prowess on roads which test it’s balance. And, for those of us who don’t have access to a track, windy roads will serve. We drove through LA’s Mulholland Drive to PCH for a Sunday morning jaunt to Carr Winery in Santa Barbara for a tasting. Much to our surprise, the husky 4-door held its ground. The tires stuck around corners with great tenacity and body roll was almost absent. Moreover, the ventilated disc brakes with high friction pads were of great help in approaching turns. In gain, F Sport suspension with Ilachs-sourced shock absorbers kept the ride firm with little rebound in both Track and SLALOM modes.
Plenty of features are included to keep drivers as well as passengers safe and sound. Essential characteristics that came in handy are the following: smart stop technology, blind spot monitor with cross traffic alert, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control (for long drives), lane departure alert with steering wheel assist and lane keep assist (are great for driver fatigue). Lastly, Lexus Enform offers assistance if the vehicle is involved in accident or stolen. You can also communicate with an actual representative to send directions straight to the car while in motion. Finally, a car concierge for a sports sedan that confortably seats four.
As much as we enjoyed listening to the sweet serenade of the exhaust, the audio system is just as satisfying. Our version came with a 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium sound system, with 835 watts of power ($1380 USD). It’s unquestionably one of the most powerful units its segment. In addition, there’s a 12.3-inch infotainment display that can be surfed with an armrest remote. To date, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are unavailable. However, music can be played from your phone while connected to Bluetooth and/or plugged into the USB port. And, for $900 you can opt for an in color heads-up display (HUD) that offers metrics such as the speed limit, current MPH/KMH and tachometer.
In short, the standard 2019 Lexus GS F is priced at $84,350 and the 10th Anniversary Edition retails around $93,250. For far less than its challengers, the GS F is an exotic with tons of intuitive amenities. A true head-turner and automotive beast.

Mary van de Wiel (aka Van), founder of Black Line Crazy (BLC), has announced the launch of her line of the same name, which includes limited edition bags and one-of-a-kind, hand-woven rugs and wall hangings featuring her paintings. Additionally, van de Wiel’s work was selected for an installation on Avenue of the Americas in New York City by And Partners which acts as ‘co-curators’ on behalf of its clients.
A former chief creative officer of her own award-winning branding agency with offices in New York and Sydney, Australia, van de Wiel has worked with countless Fortune 500 clients. At the same time, she realized she relished walking outside the line with her bold black and white graphic designs born from her love of doodling. One day in the middle of Mexico, van de Wiel picked up a brush and can of black house paint and started painting murals, collages and gallery windows—floor to ceiling. In 2015, she had her first successful exhibition at the Saint Cloche Gallery in Sydney. A year later, she was invited to be part of a group show at Galeria Manuk in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Later moving to Mexico, van de Wiel started to create messenger bags that feature her paintings and signature and expanded her line to currently include totes and zippered sleeves as well as a hand-woven collection of rugs and wall hangings. Anyone purchasing items from her line instantly becomes a collector of a one-of-a-kind or limited edition piece which makes the work truly unique.
“I believe that art has a pulse and belongs in everyday life—not just on walls,” said Mary van de Wiel, founder of BLC. “It’s designed to be worn, carried and integrated with the personality of the owner as a means of self-expression.”
BLC Collections, both form and function, are an invitation to walk outside the line. It’s art at the intersection of fashion, home and everyday life. Because sustainability is a must, BLC works very closely with makers and artisans, researching organizations that repurpose vinyl for a circular economy, rather than sending it to landfill. Additionally, BLC purposely chose master weavers who source their 100% wool from the state of Guanajuato—from a small group of farmers that have been tending to their animals’ welfare and the environment for decades.

While Bianca Balti and David Gandy remain the iconic faces of Light Blue and Light Blue Pour Homme, a new couple embodies the 2019 Summer limited edition to tell the story of the new fragrances: Light Blue Sun
Light Blue Sun is an invitation to Capri – let the new fragrance take you on a trip to relive your first summer romance.
LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR FEMME
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty captures the essence of young, sun-kissed passion with new limited edition fragrances, Light Blue Sun, exploring a new olfactory territory: warm, sensual, sunny. Light Blue Sun is inspired by the exhilarating magic of summer love on the enchanting island of Capri, warmed by the dazzling Mediterranean sun rays. This summer, Light Blue’s fruity floral signature takes on a new sunny, sensual quality, as though warmed by the languorous heat of the Capri sun. Light Blue’s mouth-watering top notes of tangy Italian lemon and juicy Granny Smith apple are quenched with a liberal splash of cool, refreshing coconut water, and sharpened by the crisp sea sprays of the ozonic accord. The original heart of sensual jasmine and feminine white rose is now infused with exotic frangipani, creating a heady blend of sun-soaked floral nectar. In the base, aromatic cedarwood is warmed with ambrosial amber and the sweet intensity of Bourbon vanilla. Finally, a hypnotic trail of seductive white musks lingers on the skin, evoking the addictive desire of summer love.
LIGHT BLUE SUN – POUR HOMME
The iconic woody, spicy scent of Light Blue Pour Homme is reinvented with a splash of freshness and suffused with the warmth of the Italian sun. A chilled cocktail of Italian bergamot and juicy frozen grapefruit is invigorated with the vibrant, spicy tang of ginger and the fresh aquatic wave of the ozonic accord. As the fragrance evolves to an intensely Mediterranean and masculine heart, the warmth of cedarwood and cypress conjure the power of the sun at its midday peak, setting aromatic rosemary against a refreshing cooler of coconut water. Woody oakmoss and sensual white musks dominate the drydown, as earthy vetiver and carnal vanilla recreate the irresistible allure of salty, sun-kissed skin.
The warm sun of Capri lends its golden amber hue to the fragrances, while the sky- blue boxes are embellished with a traditional illustration of the beaming sun, in the style of the Mediterranean majolica of Capri.
THE NEW DIGITAL CAMPAIGN
The launch of Light Blue Sun marks the sequel to the Light Blue story with the summer crush of two young blondes, who meet on the enchanting island of Capri.
CHAPTER 1: SUNCRUSH
While she enjoys a gelato, and he works on the harbourside, the young couple catch each other’s eye.
CHAPTER 2: SUNSATION
As she sunbathes on the beach, he approaches to whisper an invitation in her ear. They spot a boat moored near the Faraglioni and hatch a plan.
CHAPTER 3: SUNSCAPE
Winding along the clifftops on his scooter, her arms wrapped tight around his waist, they arrive at a secluded cove, the sea sparkling in the midday sun. He dives into the water towards the boat anchored just off shore….
CHAPTER 4: SUNKISS
She basks on the sun-soaked deck, while he pulls anchor. Finally, they can resist each other no longer, and he draws her towards him in a passionate kiss….
Lunching in the sun with her friends, she spots him working on the dock, and her imagination starts to race. Suddenly she is basking in the sun, as he whispers in her ear, then stripping down to her bikini as they dive into the water. She imagines them frolicking on the deck of a boat by the Faraglioni cliffs, and imagines him drawing her towards him in a passionate embrace. As she finally emerges from her reverie, she holds his gaze with a flirtatious smile.
