The Luxe World Loses the Trend Setting Italian Fashion Designer Roberto Cavalli at 83. (Luxury Fashion)

Roberto Cavalli, the legendary designer who practically invented cheetah print? It’s sad to process that he's passed away at the age of 83. Word on the street is he'd been battling an illness for a while, but that didn't stop him from leaving his mark on the world. Cavalli wasn't born with a silver spoon, but he sure knew how to design clothes that screamed "old money." He started out in Florence, honing his craft and catching the eye of Parisian fashion royalty like Hermès and Pierre Cardin. His debut collection was a total power move, and soon his sexy, bold style – think ripped denim, brocade– was taking Florence and Milan by storm. But what truly made Cavalli a fashion icon? His animal prints, of course! From leopard spots to tiger stripes, his clothes were designed for the wild side. So raise a glass of bubbly to Roberto Cavalli, a true legend who made the world a more glamorous place.

De Bethune's New “Purple Rain” is a 38.7mm Dream in Mesmerizing Purple. (Watches)

De Bethune, the watchmaker just dropped a purple timepiece so regal it could belong to a prince. Forget boring old gold! This DB28XS Purple Rain is a dream come true in a mesmerizing shade of purple. It might be on the smaller side at 38.7mm, but trust De Bethune to make every millimeter count. They've got their signature floating lugs and a mesmerizing random guilloché pattern on the dial. But the real showstopper is the color & out-of-the-box design! De Bethune's scientists basically created this unreal purple color in their workshop. They took lightweight titanium and gave it a special heat treatment called "thermal oxidation" – they played with fire to unlock its hidden potential. It enabled tiny particles to glow and the metal itself emitted light, resulting in this never-before-seen shade of purple. It's made entirely of titanium, which makes it light as a feather and practically indestructible. Not only is this watch gorgeous, but it's also built to last. Instant royalty-worthy watch. BRB, need to save up for this one!

💡Luxury Tidbit 💡

Did You Know? Pagani is known for its expertise in carbon fiber construction!

This is a cornerstone of its brand identity and a key factor in setting it apart from other luxury car manufacturers.

Pagani's engineers and artisans have perfected the art of working with carbon fiber, a material prized for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and durability.

By utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques and proprietary processes, Pagani is able to create carbon fiber components that are not only lightweight but also incredibly strong, providing superior performance on the road and track.

The use of carbon fiber throughout Pagani's cars contributes to their outstanding performance characteristics. The lightweight nature of carbon fiber reduces overall vehicle weight, improving acceleration, handling, and fuel efficiency.

Additionally, the high strength of carbon fiber enhances structural rigidity, allowing Pagani cars to maintain stability and agility even during high-speed maneuvers.

Its commitment to carbon fiber technology enables its cars to exhibit remarkable agility and precision on the road or track. The combination of a lightweight chassis and advanced aerodynamics results in responsive handling and precise control, allowing drivers to push the limits of performance with confidence.

Despite being lightweight, carbon fiber offers exceptional structural integrity and crash protection. Pagani's meticulous engineering ensures that each carbon fiber component is designed to withstand rigorous testing and meet stringent safety standards, providing peace of mind to drivers and passengers alike.

Pagani's USP lies in its ability to seamlessly integrate carbon fiber technology into every aspect of its vehicles, from the chassis and body panels to interior trim and aerodynamic elements.

This approach to carbon fiber construction sets Pagani apart as a brand that prioritizes innovation, performance, and craftsmanship in equal measure, resulting in cars that are as visually stunning as they are technologically advanced.

Canary is busy finding the keys to her Pagani.

 
But she’ll be back after the ride Next Friday!

Until then,
Stay Luxe you all!
