Creed’s Green Irish Tweed($225), all I can say is WOW!, not at the price but at the scent. It smells so good it’s delicious. The cologne is an elegant, sporty scent with notes of sandalwood and Florentine iris. And not that this cologne needs me to name drop to cosign its effectiveness but it was initially created for Cary Grant and later worn by Richard Gere and Robert Redford. If you are a man, this all you will EVER need.

33 yr old high-end luxury designer Alexender Amosu, who is well known for his diamond encrusted cell phones, is now adding another innovative business venture to his ever increasing portfolio by introducing what is now being described as the most expensive suit on the planet. This suit, which is priced at £70,000 ( about $101,907), includes nine 18 carat gold & diamond buttons and features very expensive fabrics from rare animals vicuna and qiviuk.

Amosu’s suit was ordered by an unmentioned buyer who plans to attend a party in central London. It took Amosu and his team over 80 hours and 5,000 individual stitches to finish the piece.  To complete the sell Amosu is also throwing in a luxurious and highly secure delivery by transporting the suit via armored Range Rover.

Millionaire Alexander Amosu, who is based in London, earned his first million selling cell phone ring-tones at 25 yrs old and then used those earnings in order to get into the high end designer business. He was recently featured as one of the “top 40 under 40 rising media industry” entrepreneurs from Times. Wow… I wonder who bought the suit, because if I had one I would never wear it. I would just bring it out every once in a while and just stare at it.

Marc Jacobs has outdone himself this spring by releasing the colored 100% leather hoodies ($495) in four colorways. I own the black one from a season ago and this is the first time they have done any other color besides black, and some of these colors are straight out of the tropical Skittles bag. Not a joke, I can already hear rappers calling there stylist like “I need that”, only for them to respond back like “the biggest size it comes in is an XL and it’s quite fitted. Are you sure you want it?”

Louis Vuitton Judy MM White ($1,890)

Take a  good look at the Louis Vuitton Monogram Multicolore Judy bag which was designed by Takashi Murakami. The LV Judy Bag is only available in 2 colors black & white and they come in sizes GM, MM, and PM. I love Murakami’s Multicolore designs because they fantastically enrich vibrant outfits adding that necessary spice.

Exclusive Prince Opus iPod Touch. Is this an Apology?

If you haven’t heard, well the legendary Prince, who is 50 yrs old going on 51, isn’t really down with the whole Youtube, Myspace, file sharing internet culture, where his loyal fans get to watch his old video performances or listen to his music online for free. So because of this he filed a lawsuit against Youtube demanding that they remove all his music which in turn angered his fan following. Well it seems as though Prince may be apologizing because he is releasing a limited edition iPod Touch entitled: ‘The Prince Opus iPod’.

The purple Prince Pod includes a 40 minute movie of the 2007 ’21 Nights’ concert in London’s O2 Arena as well as 15 bonus tracks from his “Indigo Nights” live album. Plus, the Prince Touch features video testimonials from Diddy, Elton John, Naomi Campbell, Matt Damon and many of his fans as well as behind the scenes footage with twins, Mandy and Maya Mclean. Prince is also throwing in a 280+ photograph book  of himself at the 21 Nights concert which was published by Kraken Opus with photos shot by Randee St. Nicholas.

Purple diamond encrusted “Prince Love symbol” emblem

However there is a catch to this apology, you have to pay $2,100 to get 1 of the 950 that will be available to the world. But there’s more, when all 950 Prince Opuses are sold, a prize drawing of those who bought one will take place and the the winner will receive a check for £21,000 (about $31,498). But there’s even more, later this year Prince is planning to auction off the ‘Number One Edition’ which is a handcrafted purple alligator Prince Opus book with a detachable 7.77ct purple diamond encrusted Prince Love symbol emblem which can be worn as a pendent. The auction winner will get a private Prince performance in LA and will be able to invite up to 50 guests. Ok that’s not bad but what about the “not allowing your fans to watch or listen to your music online” issue; that’s more important.

No release date or iPod specs have been mentioned as of yet but just rest assured that it’s going to take a little while longer before Prince gets his apologizing skills up to par. Prince let me help you out with a hint- understand that times are changing so ease up on all the copyright infringement crap, but anyways… I really want that diamond encrusted Prince love symbol emblem.

Nike Air Jordan Retro 3 Release 09/12/2009

I’m a huge Jordan fan so I was excited to hear that not only are the Jordan White/Cement Grey-True Blue sneakers being released in August of ’09 but also the Jordan White/Fire Red-Cement Grey are set to be released a month later. They’re both classic sneakers but I can honestly say I have been waiting for the White/Fire Red-Cement Grey’s to retro for a minute now. These are a must have and there’s no doubt they will be limited. So look for the price to be about $150, but in my opinion that’s worth every penny.
