NEW YORK -- Porsche Design shifted things into high gear this time around, forgoing the static presentation of the last several seasons and staging a full-blown runway format to showcase its men's and women's spring and summer 2014 collection. The inspiration : Titled "New Digital Ambiguity," the collection was inspired by the impact of digital culture on design. "The pace of modern life and rapid exchange  of ideas and information," creative director Thomas Steinbruck said in the show notes, "has transformed the perception of the world and how we live in it. " The look:  A minimalist -- almost to the point of clinical -- collection of knits, leather jackets, mesh dresses and tops and a handful of structured neoprene jackets and blouses (neoprene is turning out to be one of the runway's go-to fabrications this week)

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who designed the first 911 sports car and went on to found a consumer products design firm that also carried the Porsche name, died Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76. Born Dec. 11, 1935, in Stuttgart, Germany, he was the eldest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche, who along with Ferry's father Ferdinand Porsche founded the business that grew into the sports car maker. Porsche grew up in the auto business during a turbulent time. His grandfather designed the original Volkswagen Beetle for the Nazi regime in Germany in the 1930s as well as tanks that were used by the Germans in World War II. As a child, "Butzi" - as he was known to his family and business associates - enjoyed designing and building his own toys.

YOU'RE an evil genius, bent on world domination. You have a nuclear weapon simmering away in the basement of your underground lair, deep within some Polynesian volcanic island. You still have to eat. Bring me a sandwich, fool! Hah-hah-hah! Which means you need a kitchen. May I suggest the Porsche Design Kitchen P'7340 built by Poggenpohl? If cool, nocturnal and sinister are what you're looking for in kitchen cabinetry, then this suite of modular units and appliances is your ticket: free-standing islands and wall-mounted cabinets, high-tech Miele appliances and black chrome Dornbracht fixtures, all framed in brushed aluminum.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the man who designed the iconic Porsche 911 and then left the auto industry to begin an industrial design house, is back -- as lead design consultant for the 2003 Porsche Cayenne. But the dapper 66-year-old, namesake and grandson of Porsche AG founder Ferdinand A. Porsche, is not back in the car business full time. He says he prefers being able to use his skills on a variety of projects -- a luxury that running his own firm, Porsche Design, permits.
