Champagne Dreams

Luxury designer has created the world’s most expensive champagne in collaboration with luxury champagne brand Goût de Diamants, called “Taste of Diamonds”. Amosu also created the first worlds most expensive iphone and BlackBerry and can be found in the Guinness Book of Records for making the worlds most expensive bespoke suit. So he seems like the most obvious choice to create the most expensive champagne in the world.

For this champagne bottle, they have taken the signature Superman badge logo, which is made of Swarovski crystal, and have upgraded it to an 18 carat white gold. Centered in the badge is a single, flawless white diamond that in itself  is 19 carats. The drink is also handmade in 18ct solid gold and weighs approximately 36gsm, handcrafted and engraved with the client’s name and a single bottle costs £1,200,000. So if you want to do something special for a special occasion nothing can beat having the most expensive champagne in the world.

Style Picks- Christmas Trees (part 1)

Since Christmas is so close now I feel my upcoming posts should reflect a bit of the Christmas Spirit. Starting with, Christmas trees. These are larger than life and some very innovative Christmas trees seen around the streets of the world. Now I love the concept and idea behind all of these and would not mind something so different, but most traditionalists might have an issue. Well to each their own! and do remember my freedom of expression before sending me hate mail. Merry Christmas!
