60 SECONDS WITH ZIGGY MARLEY

Photograph by Johnny Black Got a minute? Tuff Gong descendant Ziggy Marley opens up about protecting his father's legacy, working with Willie Nelson on Family Time (out May 5), and why he's a Shaggy fan. Q: People have called you a member of the reggae royal family. Does that mean anything to you? A: Well, people call me all types of things. Whether it's good or bad, I don't really think about it too much. I don't believe in other people's ideas. I have my own ideas. Q: You've voiced concern about your father becoming a product, like Kurt see more

The Trend: Industrial Design

First the bad news: American factory production has been in slow decline since the seventies. Now the good: Salvaged industrial furnishings—great for breaking up a sterile modern décor—are easy to find these days, especially online. Here are the best websites for scoring a machine-age look. Monica Khemsurov 1. AMERICAN FURNISHINGS The husband-and-wife team behind this 12-year-old Columbus, Ohio, company sticks close to home, rescuing car parts, bookshelves, and giant dough-kneading hooks from midwestern factories. The best finds are restored or transformed into furniture, with old labels and just the right degree of chipped paint. 2. SONRISA FURNITURE This Los see more

COLSON WHITEHEAD, SAG HARBOR

Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead [Doubleday, $25] Best known for conceptually ambitious novels, Colson Whitehead goes traditional this time with a beautifully written, semi-autobiographical novel about a teenager's summers in the black section of Long Island's Sag Harbor—and the roller discos, epic Dungeons & Dragons sessions, and Cosby-kid comparisons that shape him.

CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION BLAZER

By Paul Maffi Designers often rely on a standard line—"classic with a twist"—when outlining their work. Yet the items the phrase is meant to characterize often fall short of the description. Every now and then, though, an article of clothing—like Calvin Klein Collection's dark seersucker blazer—truly embodies such a conceit. Rather than use the conventional rumpled blue-and-white-striped fabric, designer Italo Zucchelli chose an unexpected navy-and-black one. He then cut the summer-weight material into an appropriately trim silhouette, resulting in a modern jacket with a proven pedigree.

UP-AND-COMING CUISINE

Txikito. Photographs by Michael Simmons Nothing against pho and empanadas, but your palate's probably ready for something new. Here are the long-overlooked cuisines that are finally getting attention from chefs across America. JJ Goode SPANISH BASQUE Along the Spain-France border lies Basque Country, a region with a distinctive surf-and-turf cuisine that's finally finding ambassadors in the United States. At his Philadelphia wine bar and restaurant Tinto (114 S. 20th St., 215-665-9150), Jose Garces does a twist on a classic pintxo (the Basque version of a tapa), pairing anchovies and pickled peppers with melon.

60 Seconds with David Hyde Pierce

Photograph by Joan Marcus Got a minute? David Hyde Pierce (a.k.a. Niles Crane from Frasier) sounds off on acting, aging, and his new Broadway play, Accent on Youth, which opens April 29. Q: What drew you to the play? A: I had worked with the director, Dan Sullivan, 20 years ago on The Heidi Chronicles. I read the play, and it kept surprising me. It's a 1934 comedy, but it wasn't just wacky or silly—it had a lot of heart and soul and takes a lot of weird turns. It's about a guy who was in his fifties and see more

KANYE WEST + LOUIS VUITTON

Photographs courtesy of Louis Vuitton When Kanye West set out to design a new line of sneakers for Louis Vuitton, he found inspiration in a high-collared jacket from the movie Dune and in a childhood memory: the moment he first laced up a pair of Air Jordans. "It was an amazing feeling," he says. With a little guidance from LV creative director Marc Jacobs, West channeled his vision into pared-down mid-tops that stand out for their quilted rear flap, which is designed to catch the hem of your pants. "I wanted to do something different—it's like a tongue in see more

THE NEW TASTEMAKERS

Photographs by Matthew Sandager This fresh crop of influential store owners have evolved from merely curating contemporary style to creating it. Courtney Colavita OPENING CEREMONY (pictured above) Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the owners of Opening Ceremony, which has stores in New York and Los Angeles, made their name by taking risks on new talent (they were among the first to carry Patrik Ervell, Band of Outsiders, and Acne), and by orchestrating cool collaborations (with Pendleton, TopShop, and, this fall, Chloë Sevigny). Now Leon and Lim are proving their worth as designers, with their own brand of quirky but see more

KING KHAN AND THE SHRINES, WHAT IS?!

King Khan and the Shrines, What Is?! [Vice] Our rating: 3.5 out of a possible 5 Khan, an Indian expat from Berlin by way of Canada, is an amalgam of Iggy Pop, Sun Ra, and James Brown. On his fourth album—now available in the United States—he mixes psychedelic soul and garage rock to create tracks (like "I Wanna Be a Girl" and "No Regrets") that'll make you want to dance or light something on fire. Either way, Khan approves. Matt Hendrickson The band performs "Welfare Bread" at Brooklyn's McCarren Park Pool. READ MORE: Bat for Lashes succumbs to doom see more
