In Brief: Google Maps North Korea, Calvin Klein Going to Super Bowl, Dine with Philippe Starck

Google is fleshing out a national map of long-inscrutable North Korea. The largely crowdsourced cartography debuted this week on Google Maps.

• Calvin Klein is going to the big game–or at least his underwear is. Here’s a sneak peek at the company’s first Super Bowl ad, a 30-second spot directed by Fabien Baron. Look for it to run at the end of the first quarter.

• British designer Celia Birtwell is teaming with fast-fashion retailer Uniqlo on a capsule collection that will debut in March. “Most of the prints featured in the collaboration are from my archive collection,” Birtwell told British Vogue.

• Parisians are flocking to Philippe Starck‘s latest eatery, Ma Cocotte, a cafeteria-style affair in a converted warehouse near the Marché aux Puces. The WSJ‘s Tobias Grey pays a visit.

• It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Yup, it’s a plane. Delta is building a rooftop viewing area at New York’s JFK airport. The Thom Filicia-designed lounge is part of the airline’s $1.2 billion Terminal 4 expansion project, which opens in May.

• Keep an eye on the City Market project. The proposed 3.3-million-square-foot development would bring a college, hotel, offices, and apartments to the fashion district of downtown Los Angeles.
