The Oxford Dictionary just defined the term, but everyone from James Franco to Miley Cyrus have already elevated it to an art form

"Around 2 AM among the many dead bodies inside the collapse, I found a couple at the back of the building, embracing each other in the rubble. The lower parts of their bodies were stuck under the concrete. A drop of blood from the man’s eye ran like a tear. Since then, this couple remains firmly in my heart. So many questions rose in my mind. What were they thinking at the last moment of their lives?"
LOUIS VUITTON: LA MAISON AU BORD DE L’EAU BY CHARLOTTE PERRIAND
Ladies and Gentlemen, the ressurection is upon us, courtesy of Louis Vuitton, who have, for this year’s Art Basel Miami, bought back to life Charlotte Perriand’s iconic Maison au du bord de l’eau -originally designed as an eco holiday home. The design was first created in 1934 for a design contest, however was never built, until now. About time! And isn’t it dreamy. Charlotte’s also the inspiration for the LV Icones SS14 collection by Julie de Libran, which captures the architects aesthetic, uniting “timeless feminine elegance, uniting fantasy with precision, lightness with respect for craftsmanship, and freedom with functionality.”
