RICHARD MILLE: Rolex For Billionaires.
The Richard Mille brand is a product of deep relationships from old Swiss luxury watchmaking and jewellery. Launched only in 2001 after three years of experimentation with materials, design and mechanisms, Richard Mille has quickly become one of the world’s ultra-luxury watch brands. Richard Mille, one of the co-founders, who had worked in the Swiss luxury timepiece industry since 1971, joined up with Dominique Guenat, owner of Guenat SA – Montres Valgine and a great friend, with whom he had worked on watches for Mauboussin, a previous employer.
They hatched the idea of launching the world’s most outstanding luxury watches, built on their common love for cars, aeronautics, and mechanics. Even though they were big boys in the world of luxury watchmaking, such an audacious dream required collaboration with other titans of the industry. They got the backing of Lucien Tissot, a lawyer whose family has been making luxury watches since 19th Century. Then they got the venerable Audemars Piguet to manufacture the complex design and mechanics of the Richard Mille watches. The watches, of course, incorporate the tourbillon mechanism – invented in 1795 to improve accuracy, the tourbillon is now largely a show-off displayed on Swiss watches that cost $40,000 and above. Most Richard Mille watches are not adorned with gold, silver, diamonds, or any precious stones, what you pay for is the exceptional mechanization, which draws on modern techniques and materials used in F1 cars and aerospace.
The brand has been spotted on celebrities such as Jay-Z, Drake, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Kelvin Hart, Ed Sheeran, Jackie Chan, Natalie Portman, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Brown. Sports icons are not left out, Rafael Nadal, Wayde van Niekerk, Yohan Blake, Floyd Mayweather, Neymar da Silva, Bubba Watson, and Felipe Masa.
A Richard Mille watch is very expensive, as its price starts from $80,000 and it can go up to or even surpass $2 million. According to Declan Quinn, the famous Irish-American cinematographer, owning a Richard Mille watch is ‘’today’s equivalent of the billionaire’s handshake’’.
In 2018, Richard Mille withdrew from the luxury industry’s flagship marketing event, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), to be known as Watches & Wonders Geneva from 2020. This further placed the brand in a class of its own, apart from even the most exclusive luxury watch brands. Since it began production in 2001, only 39,000 Richard Mille watches have been made – there are currently 29,500 dollar millionaires in Nigeria and 4.4 million millionaires in China.
Davido is one of the proud owners of Richard Mille, an ultra-exclusive watch brand.
10 Common Mistakes You Make When Decorating Your Living Room.
Your living room is probably one of the first spaces someone sees when they enter your home, meaning there’s a lot of pressure to make it look perfect. To help you do just that, Insider spoke with four interior designers to find out some common decorating blunders and furniture faux pas. Here are some of the biggest mistakes people make when decorating a living room.
1. Buying a rug that is too big or too small for your living room will mess up the entire space.
Gena Kirk, the vice president of design at KB Home, told Insider that it’s important to ensure that a rug does more than just work within the design scheme of your home — it needs to fit the room you intend to use it in.
“A rug that is too large will look overwhelming in the space and can make the room appear smaller,” she said. “A rug that is too small forces your furniture to be closer together, leaving the room feeling unbalanced and [creating] the feeling of wasted empty space.” Kirk recommended using painter’s tape and exact measurements to create mock outlines on your floor so you can envision how the rug might look in your space.
2. Placing your couch up against a wall could make the room look smaller.
Lauren White, the owner and principal designer of Ellen W. Interior Concepts, told Insider that instead of placingyour sofa up against the wall, you should consider “floating” it.
“Floating furniture means that you place pieces off the wall, sometimes in the middle of the room,” she said. “When you do this in your living room, it makes the room feel and look larger because you will be able to walk around it.”
3. Using pieces of furniture that are too “matchy-matchy” might make your home look like a showroom.
Walk into a furniture showroom, and you’re likely to find that almost everything is sold in sets — including living-room furniture.
“The easiest thing would be to purchase an entire set, but don’t do it,” White said. “A space that looks too ‘matchy-matchy’ isn’t a good thing. Furniture sets are visually boring, but ending different pieces demonstrates that you took time to curate your space, which, in turn, elevates the style in your home.”
4. Your television should be hung in a practical spot, not somewhere high up.
Design is more than having a home that looks pretty — you should also take ergonomics into account.
“I know that placing your TV over the fireplace is the ‘it’ thing to do, but it does a huge disservice to your neck,” White said.
“Your TV should be eye-level to where you are sitting,” she told Insider. “You should not have to look up.”
5. If you don’t prioritize comfort, your living room could end up feeling bleak.
People often think you have to sacrifice comfort for style, and it reflects in their living space, Sonja Rasula, a former interior designer on HGTV’s “Home to Go” and TLC’s “Trading Spaces” who founded Unique Markets in Los Angeles, told Insider.
“Comfortability is one of the biggest factors that make a living room,” Rasula said. “Even if you are balling on a budget, adding a cozy blanket or a few plush pillows will make all the difference.”
6. You might want to have multiple light sources in your living room to create ambiance.
Living rooms are multifunctional, and your lighting choices should reflect that, Sara Ray, an interior designer based in Nashville, told Insider.
“There should be overhead lighting on a dimmer that can be used to move throughout the space or dimmed to provide the right ambiance for a party,” she said. “You want to have plenty of secondary lighting so that tasks like reading can be done while sitting in the space.”
She suggested placing accent lighting on bookshelves, on a fireplace mantel, or above artwork to create layers of lighting in your living room.
7. Choosing furniture that’s too big or too small for your space can make the room feel off.
Picking out the right furniture is important, but where you put it is equally essential to designing a living room.
“Large pieces in a small space can make the room look even smaller, where small pieces in a large space can leave too much empty space,” Rasula told Insider.
For larger living rooms, she recommended leaving 30 to 36 inches between furniture pieces. Smaller spaces, like apartments, can get away with 18 to 24 inches between pieces.
“This amount of distance will ensure you’re not overcrowding your living room while at the same time will help maximize space for a smaller living room,” she said.
8. Incorporating furniture that doesn’t match the rest of your home might throw off the space.
Kirk said her clients often want to incorporate a piece of furniture in their living room that doesn’t really mesh well with the overall style of their home.
She said that while this should be avoided, there’s an exception to the rule.
“If it is because they love it, I say buy it,” she said. “I believe that if you love something you can make almost anything work, and that’s part of what makes a person’s home uniquely theirs — a home filled with furniture they love.”
9. You should use shelving space, but avoid packing it with large items.
When it comes to shelving in your living room, there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about decorating it, according to Rasula.
“You should utilize shelving space as much as possible, but try and avoid overhang, which could cause the space to look overcrowded,” she told Insider.
She explained that overhang is when items that are too large for the shelf or bookcase they’re on stick out over the ledge.
10. Not having enough tables and other surfaces to set your things on can be impractical.
Since a living room is often well trafficked, you should probably have ample places to set down your drinks, books, and other items, Ray told Insider.
“To create a functional living room, you should have a surface that you can easily reach from wherever you’re sitting,” she said. “It’s so nice to have a side table close by when you’re ready to set a drink down.”
WONDER BOY: How The King Of The Streets Became Ghana’s Fashion Alchemist.
Over the years, some Ghanaian musicians have launched fashion lines, and most of them are nowhere to be found. Few include Sark Clothing from rapper, Sarkodie, Meridian shoes by Mugeez, and Black Avenue Clothing for D-Black, these brands appear to have fallen flat. After his resurrection, Shatta Wale launched the SM cloth line, and so far, the streetwear label didn’t endure an embarrassing fashion startup failure. The SM apparel was primarily endorsed by his loyal fans, Shatta Wale and his team managed to create a product that people would actually buy.
Shatta Wale again launched another fashion line for his album The Reign, which was a huge success nationwide. The Reign apparel moved from just being a clothesline to become a household item. Now, for his album, Wonder Boy, that was released on October, 19, The King of The Streets launch "Wonder Boy" apparel that has the potential to penetrate the market. Despite the fashion market being highly fragmented, customer loyalty from Shatta Movement fans ensured “Wonder Boy” broke the bank. (Flash Africa)
The Best Way To Wear A Beanie.
The cold-weather headwear landscape is a notoriously tricky area to traverse. Beanies are basically the only vaguely acceptable option, and let’s face it, they’re hardly held in high regard by followers of fashion. You can’t really blame them either. After all, usually when these woollen warmers stray into the public fashion consciousness, there have been terrible, terrible consequences.
For example, David Beckham and his legions of style disciples spent the best part of the noughties proudly rocking a look that said, “I’ve got a turd in my hat”; and during the first coming of Craig David, the R’n’B/Garage crossover crooner exemplified perfectly why condoms should always be rubber and worn on your penis, as opposed to woollen and worn on your head.
However, as is the case with so many things in the world of style – it’s not just a matter of what you wear, it’s also about how you wear it. And with that reasoning very much in mind, we’d like to take to the stand in defence of one of winter’s most misunderstood accessories.
If you’ve ever uttered the words, “Hats just don’t suit me” it may be because you’ve simply been wearing the wrong ones. Beanies work well with menswear’s current love of utilitarian workwear, and there are a number of styles to match even the weirdest and lumpiest of face shapes.
Picking The Right Beanie For Your Face
“A beanie is a great staple of your winter wardrobe,” says Sarah Gilfillan, stylist and founder of SartoriaLab, a London-based men’s personal styling service. “But before you head out to buy one, remember that small details can make the difference as to whether or not the style suits you.”
If you’re round or square of face, avoid designs that will make you look like Harry from Home Alone. “Choose a beanie without a turn-back cuff, with ribbing and a looser style that can add a bit of height to your face,” suggests Gilfillan. “Also, wear it slightly back off your face rather than pulling it down over your ears.”
A bobble hat is another good option for this, but steer clear of anything too ‘out there’. You don’t want to look like Kevin, either.
If you have a longer face, a beanie can work nicely. “Opt for a turn back cuff, which could even be in a contrasting colour or have stripe detailing,” says Gilfillan. “Wear a tighter fitting style that sits snugly on your head to avoid adding any more height.”
Beanie Styles To Embrace
To keep your ears warm in style, these are the beanies you can rely on. Stick to these failsafe winter hats, and you can’t go far astray
The Classic Cuffed Beanie
When you hear ‘woolly hat’ this is most likely what you think of – and there’s a good reason for that. This style is one of the most popular and versatile in existence and has been championed by hip-hop royalty, workmen and everyone else in between. As far as beanies go, this is the grandaddy.
The Fisherman Beanie
It may have become the hipsters’ cold-weather headgear of choice, but don’t let that put you off. Styled as part of a workwear-inspired look, the fisherman beanie really comes into its own. This miniature woolly hat features a turn-up and sits on top of the head, ending just above the ear.
The Bobble Hat
A pom-pom isn’t exactly the manliest of decorative details, so it may come as a surprise to learn that it actually has its roots in the military. Napoleon’s infantry and the Scottish Highland regiments both used pom-poms on their hats to differentiate between companies and today it is still possible to wear one without looking like a carol singer. Steer clear of neon colours, overly festive patterns and anything with more than one modestly-sized bobble.
Beanies To Avoid
Newton’s third law of headwear: for every nice hat, there is an equal and opposite crap hat. Here’s what to look out for.
The Baggy Beanie
As mentioned earlier, for several years in the noughties, every man and his dog was wearing an oversized, slouchy beanie. Needless to say, it was not a good look. David Beckham, as he often is, was instrumental in the spread of this fad. The former England captain was constantly getting papped wearing his baggy beanie in airports the world over, leaving us all asking the same question: just what exactly was he trying to smuggle through customs?
If a 13-year-old kid in an oversized Limp Bizkit T-shirt and baggy jeans thinks it’s “sick”, the rest of us should probably leave it well alone. Unless you’re badly rendered computer character called ‘Otto’ in a Nintendo 64 snowboarding game, this headwear nightmare is best given an extremely wide berth.
You should really know by now that in the world of menswear, anything with the prefix ‘novelty’ should be avoided like the plague, and beanies are no exception. If you stumble into a ski shop and spot a fleecy hat, decorated with a blue furry mohawk, turn swiftly around, walk out of the door and never return. That’s just common sense.
How To Wear A Beanie
Here are a few fail-safe ideas on how to style a beanie, along with the best versions you can buy to achieve each look.
Just because you need to dress a little smarter than usual, it doesn’t mean your loaf of bread should have to suffer the cold.
A traditional cuffed beanie is your best option here, although a bobble hat can also work so long as you opt for subtle, neutral colouring. Grey, black, brown and navy are safe and work-appropriate options – you don’t want to rock up to the office looking like a Belisha beacon, after all.
Consider texture mixing too. Adding another piece of knitwear into your commuter outfit can ensure you don’t look like another office drone. Try wearing your beanie with a flannel suit and wool overcoat or a knitted roll neck for something a bit more business casual.
Across the majority of menswear genres, it’s fair to say that the beanie’s popularity has – at best – fluctuated. However, in the world of streetwear, it’s appeal has remained very much steadfast. Alongside hoodies, trainers and baseball caps, beanies are one of the true streetwear staples.
As far as colours are concerned, pretty much anything goes. The key to getting the look right lies in the branding and graphics. So much of streetwear culture is about what labels you’re wearing. If you’re stunting like the kids who camp outside Supreme and Palace drops, you’re halfway there. Go for raw, relaxed-fit denim, a hoodie layered under a coach jacket, then simply top it off with one of the brands below, and you’re good to hit the streets.
The obsession with workwear in men’s fashion has been going on for a long time, and it shows no sign of letting up. Woolly hats are one of the look’s key accessories, but there’s a right way and a wrong way of doing it.
The fisherman beanie is the style best suited to this rugged, outdoor aesthetic and a classic turn-up beanie can work too. To get it right, you’ll want to opt for something with little to no branding in a block colour, styled with some heavy-duty denim, work boots, a flannel shirt and chore jacket.
Whether you’re felling trees in the Yukon, or just heading for a half a pint of craft ale in Dalston, go to work with one of these key brands below.
When the cold really sets in, let’s be honest, a tiny fisherman beanie isn’t going to cut the mustard. To really keep the chill at bay you’re going to have to go all out. We’re talking special cold-weather fabrics, fleece linings and brands that were built for the outdoors and not, say, Instagram.
Simply get layered up with your thermals, parka and snow boots and then finish with one of the brands below to battle the elements in style.
