Art Basel 2008 Recap

Art Basel is the arguably the most important U.S. art forum. The Miami event always brings out the coolest of the cool in the art world and their celebrity fans. Take a look at some of the images from this year's event.

Ludwig Reiner Trainer

German leather goods company Ludwig Reiter is a house with tradition. To date you can still by pretty much the same styles, in the same handmade quality, that the brand offered since the very beginning. It’s a classic that does not seem to change much over time, while still convincing with their outstanding quality and appreciation for tradition.

Here we present you the Ludwig Reiter Trainers. They come in a high and a low version and aside from a premium leather upper, of course also feature a leather lining. It’s the kind of shoe that you can just not go wrong with. Based on a classic military sneaker it can upgrade a sporty outfit and give a more dressy look something more casual. Either way, they will treat you well over time.

Gold is a watch color that fills the head with thoughts of a classic time in Monaco and beyond where money flowed like cognac from a river. Dior Homme brings it all back with this spectacular Chiffre Rouge 103 Gold Automatic made with diamonds and sapphires.

Old school complements the new with it’s yellow gold band, face and featuring a Tachymeter scale on dial. Check those jeweled crowns. Just classic. Available now in a limited edition run.
