Dee + Ricky’s Luxury Beatdown at Wallplay

luxury beatdown Dee + Ricky’s Luxury Beatdown at WallplayWe are huge fans of democratizing luxury, and even bigger fans of making it free to the masses!

Twin brothers Dee & Rick got their start creating famous accessories for notables including Lego pieces used by Marc Jacobs and seen prominently on Kanye West’s 808 & Heartbreak album cover.

Their new series of work “The Luxury Beatdown”, combines a mock of weaponry and items including cheetah printed crowbars and plush boxing gloves, along with gold-dipped hand grenades. Artwork is cleverly inspired by fights they saw first hand growing up in the projects of Staten Island.

People would turn everyday items into weapons, and it was usual to see stickups and drivebys. This served as inspiration for their artistic depictions. They wanted to take this part of their “life and combine it with the more luxurious part of the fashion world.”

Their new exhibit is displayed from November 13th – 30th at Manhattan Gallery Wallplay’s concept shop (blank) from 12pm-7pm daily.

Aloha for Health & Wellness

Aloha Aloha for Health & Wellness

 

I don’t know how well you take to fruits and veggies, but most of us just don’t get enough. Personally, I really like the best of green vegetables and berries and all that nature has to offer. However, chances are even when I consume high amounts, my body needs more.

Recently, I discovered Aloha. These nifty packets mixed with juice or water replenish and provide minerals and vitamins our body lacks and helps us to refuel when resistance is low. I’m a fan of their Daily Good Greens and find it revitalizes the senses and lifts the mood for an overall feeling of well-being. After sampling the products, I found myself more energized and ready to take on exercise and active activities without thinking twice. Aloha selects ingredients without using “artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, animal products, fillers, or chemicals”. Their products are a top-notch way to feed the body with what it needs quickly without making any sacrifices.

They also “seek compostable or 100% recycled packaging solutions” and “choose sustainable wind power “. I’m very excited about Aloha, and if you try, I know you will be too! For more information, check out their site: Aloha.com

Tom Ford, Open Bouquet | Cafe Rose

CAFE ROSE Tom Ford Tom Ford, Open Bouquet | Cafe Rose
Iconic American fashion designer Tom Ford knows a thing or two about smelling good. It’s rumored that he enjoys bathing, quite often; some say even up to four times a day. Thus when a bottle of his Cafe Rose Eau de Parfum (1.7 oz, $215) recently fell into my lap (gifted) I was intrigued and pleasantly engaged. On one part questioning does Ford bath in parfum, and on the other enticed as I’m quite fond of anything that contains elements of rose. Café Rose is part of a series of four fragrances’ comprised in Jardin Noir, which are said to represent the ‘darker’ and more ‘thrilling’ side of the flowers: hyacinth, rose, lily and narcissus. Essentially three precious rose essences ballet with striking spices and coffee to make up the aromas of Café Rose. The notes unravel with saffron, black pepper and Rose de Mai at the top, and continue with middle notes of Turkish rose oil and Bulgarian rose and then finish with base notes of incense, resin, amber, sandalwood and patchouli.

Exploring the opening bouquet invites the olfactory sense into a light fresh and sugary rose smell that moves toward a large dose of white musk and smoky incense. The white musk is rather substantial initially, yet decreases over time where tiny elements of coffee and incense emerge. Overall this is not too rich of a composition; it’s well-blended, even and not overly sweet-smelling. The projection is long-lasting; I smelled remains of it the subsequent morning. Since a fragrance is reasonably one on one with your body chemistry and with any of the five senses individual recollections arrive; it is relevant to sample Cafe Rose. Perhaps one of the four Jardin Noir blooms will conjure up an individual aroma personally to suit your style.

Bonus buy: unique to Tom Ford parfum this scent is unisex; it is just ‘another’ something special to share with your lover.

Holiday Hot Spots for Travel

Gulfstream3 Holiday Hot Spots for TravelNext time you’re waiting in an overcrowded airport terminal for your delayed flight to appear back on the board, imagine the possibilities of chartering a private jet directly where you need to go. Access to remote locations, zero wait time and complete control over your itinerary are just the beginning – and the luxurious possibilities are endless.

Thanks to our friends at evoJets, a posh private jet company offering private jet service in New York, Aspen and everywhere in between, we can do more than just imagine.

With the holiday and winter travel season on the horizon, most affluent travelers are beginning to consider which glamorous remote islands to jet off to and where the best powder skiing will be.

Read on to see where the nation’s elite travelers will be spending the holidays and this upcoming winter season.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands (BVI)

The largest of the BVIs and typical entry point for private jets and super-yachts, Tortola’s Road Town is the capital of the archipelago and attracts an abundance of wealthy travelers all year round. Lush green mountains overlay pristine sandy white beaches, with a rich international landscape of high-end boutiques, luxury resorts and gorgeous seaside properties.

Weather in NYC taking a turn for the cold? No problem! Charter a beautiful Challenger 300 supermidsize jet for around $60k round-trip and be there in just 4hrs flat. It’s like flying in your living room, but your personal flight attendant fluffs your pillows for you.

Philipsburg, St Maarten

The Dutch portion of Saint Martin, comprising the lower half of the island, is Sint Maarten. Philipsburg is the capital of this Caribbean oasis and plays host to thousands of wealthy international travelers from around the world. With one of the most impressive natural harbors in all of the Caribbean, Philipsburg welcomes hundreds of cruise ships and mega-yachts to its shores every month. A main draw of St. Maarten is easy access to nearby St. Baart’s, a short boat ride or plane hop to the southeast.

Direct flights to St. Maarten and St. Baart’s from anywhere in the northeast US can range from $20-$40k each way.

Aspen, CO

Perhaps the most coveted location for affluent travelers in all of the United States is Aspen. Home to $25-million dollar slope-side estates on some of the country’s finest ski resorts, this gem in the Rocky Mountain region has exuded wealth and exclusivity for nearly 100yrs. Aspen-Pitkin airport sees some of the highest private jet traffic in the world, with celebrities, billionaires and CEOs comprising the guest lists of many of this quaint little ski town’s upscale restaurants and lavish hotels.

Charter jets to Aspen can range anywhere from $10-20k from Los Angeles and $20-$30k+ from NYC each way. But hey, it beats flying to Denver and renting a car for the treacherous 4hr drive through the mountains, right?

Vancouver, British Columbia

Most commonly known for its heralded ski resort, Whistler, Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada. Breathtaking bay views sheltered from the Pacific Ocean are viewable from all over this emerald metropolis. Rich wildlife and rustic mountain charm border the sleek modern streets of the city. Sprawling resorts and luxury properties dot the mountains to the north and Vancouver Island to the east.

Private jets from New York for a 5-day round-trip to Vancouver typically run anywhere from $50-70k, with plenty of room for friends and all the ski equipment you can fit aboard.

Remembering Oscar de la Renta | Telegraph.co.uk

Screen Shot 2014 10 25 at 9.16.28 AM 583x632 Remembering Oscar de la Renta | Telegraph.co.uk

“My role as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best” – Oscar de la Renta. 1932 – 2014

To mark the passing of the master of elegance who dressed every First Lady since Jackie Kennedy, we take a look back to when Oscar de la Renta met Lisa Armstrong:

Anna Wintour telephoned Oscar de la Renta twice during our interview: the two are old friends and, it seems, as thick as thieves. Yet perhaps wisely, America’s master of elegance declined to be drawn on whether the editor of US Vogue was, as rumoured, instrumental in his decision to hire Dior’s fallen designer John Galliano.

The announcement that Galliano was joining the house, albeit initially only for three weeks, came last Friday. There are plenty who consider it a little soon for the disgraced designer to be publicly resurrected (see panel below). But de la Renta doesn’t give a hoot what the plenty think. He will be 81 this year and has had a brush with cancer, but has a posture worthy of Baryshnikov in tailoring worthy of Savile Row (in fact, the impeccable three-piece he is wearing when we meet comes, as do all his suits, from Spain). He looks as fit as a flea. READ MORE HERE
