A new luxury lifestyle hotel has just opened in the vibrant coastal town of Sitges, near Barcelona. ME Sitges Terramar is the first property by Meliá International Hotels to debut on the Catalan coast and is set to emulate the success of sister properties in popular locations such as Ibiza and Majorca. Sandwiched between the glistening Mediterranean and the undulating contours of the Graff hills, Sitges is best known for its pristine beach and gay night-life. There's always something going on, from the Carnival and Mardi Gras, to vintage car rallies and obscure festivals.

Our Monthly Obsessions
Pakistan-based designer Omar aqil reimagines six of Pablo picasso’s portraits as 3D rendered illustrations over a background of medieval-inspired architecture. this follows in the footsteps of the artist’s earlier series, ‘mimic I‘ which was completed earlier this year. using 4D-ray, photoshop, and illustrator software, Picasso’s abstract characters are transformed into 3D animations. Aqil has always been interested in Picasso’s works and, more specifically, the artist’s ability to create his own abstract, visual language.
Images of spirituality and religion permeate the work of Years & Years. The title of the British trio's 2015 debut album was Communion. Those themes become even more prominent in tracks with names like “Sanctify,” “Hallelujah,” “Karma,” and “Preacher” on the sometimes bombastic, sometimes sensual follow-up, Palo Santo. (“Palo Santo,” or “holy wood,” is an incense used in indigenous Inca culture to cast away evil spirits.) In most Western theologies, dancing is the devil’s work, and the thrill of shaking your blasphemous hips while invoking the Lord predates Madonna by centuries. But you can see why Years & Years, in particular, connect music with religious transcendence. For an artist like the trio’s principal songwriter, the energetic Olly Alexander, who’s gone from mild-mannered front man to fledging queer icon in just a few years, pop isn’t a frivolous pastime—it’s a sacred.
