Diddy Called Richard Mille Watches “Ugly.” Jay-Z—and His $2.5 Million RM—Disagrees

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we’ll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.

A couple of weeks ago, an interview with Diddy surfaced in which the rapper eviscerates Richard Mille. “I’m not a hater though, I’m a connoisseur of fly shit,” he says, before saying exactly what a hater would say. “I’m just telling you, y’all getting tricked by the Richard Mille, the Richard Mille is like a Timex or some shit like that.” He goes on to call Richard Mille watches “ugly.” (Diddy, this you?) This set off a miniature civil war in the watch world. Jeweler Alex Todd said on Instagram that he was a willing buyer for any unloved Richard Mille watches, including Diddy’s. Todd then pointedly shared an image of the custom blue-sapphire watch he made for Jay-Z—the one with a case that took 3,000 hours

Taking The Best From Trend Trading and Swing Trading

Trend trading is a trading approach that offers the potential to make larger profits by taking advantage of large market movements. There are two main concerns associated with trend trading; either the market is trending up (bull trend) or trending down (bear trend). In order for trend traders to profit, it is important to correctly identify the trend before a trade is made.

When it comes to trend trading, once a trade is placed, the trend trader will usually stay in the trade until it appears that the overall trend has changed.

Trends occur on different time frames and can be seen on various time frame charts. A trend trader, being more a long term trader where trades typically last a few weeks or more, will likely determine the trend from analyzing the daily time frame chart or larger. Minute charts can be used for fine-tuning entries, they will definitely … Read More

The Most Memorable Met Gala Menswear Looks of All Time

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala might be the most-watched red carpet on earth. It’s way more interesting than the Oscars. It’s more serious than the MTV Video Music Awards. And it’s certainly more entertaining than those two combined. Some of it has to do with watching A-listers from every walk of life (movies, music, high society) in the same place. But most of it has to do with seeing how guests attack—or don’t—a given year’s theme. Most famous guys—or, more accurately, their stylists—do right by the black tie (or, on occasion, white tie) dress code, if they play it safe. Then there are the menswear mavericks, the guys who either don’t care, or care so much that their Met Gala fits defy dress code, convention, and sometimes description (armor? robot arms? robot armor arms?). Here are the men who have honored the night’s fashion-first ethos through

At Last, Dogs Playing Poker Goes High Fashion

In countless respects, we’ve come a long way since the Givenchy Rottweiler tee that heralded streetwear’s still-running relationship with high fashion. Nowadays, in the realm of canine fashion apparel (and beyond), the people want less bark, less bite—which is exactly the sort of vibe that anthropomorphized dogs rendered in fleece can deliver.

Case in point: a cushy anorak and matching shorts set from Loewe’s Eye/LOEWE/Nature line, a permanent extension to the brand’s men’s ready-to-wear collections centered on playful, upcycled pieces. “I love the idea of repurposing something that already has a life: it reminds me of the transformative power of creativity,” creative director Jonathan Anderson said of the sub-line in 2019. Here, Anderson repurposes the iconic not-art-art poster of yore, taking some creative liberties and boosting biodiversity with the addition of a few Wes Anderson-y foxes. (Did you know that the image of dogs playing poker, from Cassius Marcellus

LVMH Prize 2021: Want To Make It in Fashion? Build Fanatics

It seems like everyone with a foot in fashion has an award these days, but the crown jewel is indisputably still the LVMH Prize, which the conglomerate awards annually to up and coming designers with a level of ceremony that is tantamount to an anointment. The jury has a record of spotting stars—Grace Wales Bonner, Marine Serre, Hood By Air, and Jacquemus are all past winners. And it’s not just a trophy: the 300,000 euros for the grand prize winner, plus a year of mentorship from LVMH, have helped form a new generation of icons in an industry that can be unsparing to young talent.

The winners of this year’s edition were announced on Tuesday morning. Twenty-seven-year-old Nensi Dojaka, an Albanian womenswear designer based in London, took home the grand prize. The Karl Lagerfeld Prize, a special prize renamed for the late Chanel designer in 2019, was shared by three
