Stephanie McRae leaned into the bed of her husband’s 1997 Ford F-150 to slide in an enormous pellet smoker for her son on Father’s Day, as grandson Kameron Runge watched.

“My husband is a delivery driver who works nights. He’s sleeping right now,” she explained in a Lowe’s parking lot in Fort Gratiot. It was her second trip to Lowe’s, having discovered the box wouldn’t fit in her 2014 Chevy Equinox earlier Sunday.

MILAN — Loro Piana’s precious and soft textiles moved by the wind were the inspiration for the vibrating texture of the facade of the brand’s new flagship in Tokyo’s Ginza.

“This is the first time we express the brand through architecture and the facade is up to our ambitions, given the impact of the building, which is so evocative of the brand,” said Loro Piana chief executive officer Fabio d’Angelantonio proudly. “We’ve long wanted to have a presence in Ginza and the brand has a storied presence in Japan, so this is a very symbolic and important moment for us.”
