Lady Gold and Ultramarine Gold: The luxury cell phones by Gresso

Phones, phones and phones, companies may try to concentrate for handsets for the masses but they can’t escape introducing luxury handsets once in a while so that they never go out of the minds of the uber rich.

Keeping this tradition in mind, Gresso has announced Lady Gold and Ultramarine Gold line of luxury cell phones which are cased in titanium and covered with colored ceramic and polished with 18k gold.

The design has loosely been inspired from a wrist watch design where a sapphire crystal window has been incorporated into the back of the phone so that the circuit board is clearly visible.

Only 15 units will be available of these limited edition luxury phones from Gresso with each handset costing $6500.

P.S. People looking for features should avoid it as it is a basic Windows mobile device since it’s a phone for your style statement.

Ex Arte Cufflinks: Artwork redefined


I know that stylish men take their cufflinks quite seriously and an alliance between Hobbs & Kent has resulted in the creation of Ex.Arte cufflinks. It would not be wrong to mention these cufflinks as piece of art with porcelain being mounted in sterling silver. These limited edition cufflinks come with the signature of the artist along with unique edition number.

If you talk about the packaging then it too can be termed as an example of artwork which includes a brushed black wooden box with an artist signed booklet. These cufflinks can be preordered from the website of the artists and will soon also be available at Kidrobot.

EC135 helicopter: Luxury in the middle of the air


I think after seeing this helicopter I have dropped my idea of buying a Lamborghini. This designer beast which you visualize above was created as a result of collaboration between Eurocopter and Herm├Ęs.

Dubbed as the EC135 helicopter, it is priced at $6 million and can be termed as a fusion between design and technology. Every care has been taken to design this helicopter for the comforts of the rich and famous. The EC135 helicopter includes a spacious cabin where four people can sit easily with large storage compartment, flat floors and lateral sliding doors.

Hermes Interiors redesigned the entire cabin floor to ceiling surface which have been covered in Toile H being used since the 1920s. If you sit in the cabin you could appreciate its comfort and design as the seats and banquette have been handcrafted for extra comfort and been upholstered in calf leather which is highly resistant and naturally grained.

A sliding glass partition has been used to partition cockpit and passenger compartment which would ensure privacy. Even the overhead Air Conditioning ducts have been center aligned across the ceiling which offers a cleaner and symmetrical visual. Even the landing gear has been redesigned for elegant access to the cabin.

So if you are interested then this EC135 helicopter can be all yours for just $6 million!!
