Rihanna’s generosity knows no bounds.

First, she gave us a slew of pop hits in the early aughts, then in 2017 she launched her luxury fashion line Fenty (which is now part of the LVMH empire, no big deal), and this past summer, she blessed us with the most hyped grooming line of the year, Fenty Skin. Now, Rihanna’s unveiling a new capsule menswear collection for Savage x Fenty, her buzzy underwear line that’s eclipsed Victoria’s Secret’s popularity.

The 32-year-old fashion mogul knows how to build excitement around her projects. Case in point: she tapped Christian Combs, the 22-year-old son of Sean “Diddy” Combs, to design this collection, which will sell on the brand’s website October 2nd.

“I wanted to create menswear styles that everyone can wear,” Rihanna said in a press release. “And after Christian did such a great job at the 2019 fashion show wearing men’s, I knew we had to have him as a collaborator.”

At first, Rihanna envisioned a minimalist underwear collection of basics, but Combs opted for vibrant monograms, patterns, and thick waist bands.

In an interview with GQ, Combs said that he envisioned the 11-piece collection of boxer briefs, boxers, pajama sets, and smoking jackets as, “the new Calvin Klein for my generation.”

Judging by the social media response to the new Savage x Fenty launch, which drew over a 100,000 likes (and countless heart emojis) on Combs’ Instagram in less than 19 hours, it looks like the underwear line is on cruise control to icon status.

Rihanna and Combs’ working relationship started in 2019 when he became a Savage x Fenty model and ambassador, and hit the catwalk in the Savage x Fenty fashion show that aired on Amazon Prime.

Combs, as well as the new menswear line, will also be appearing in this year’s Savage x Fenty fashion show.

“Fasten your seat belts, get some popcorn, and get to the TV for some amazingness. It’s gonna be sexy,” he told GQ. “A lot of special guests — and King Combs at the climax.”

Christie’s latest luxury watch auction includes this insane Richard Mille
Christie's is auctioning off a Richard Mille, its most expensive ever
RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

If you're the average guy with 1-2 watches from brands like Omega, TAG Heuer, or Tissot in your closet, then a Christie's auction will certainly be shocking for you. The auction house is gearing up for its "Important Watches" auction at Rockefeller Center on June 10, where they will showcase 118 spectacular pieces, and when we say "spectacular," we're talking more than the price of your house and all your friend's houses combined.
Christie's auction: Richard Mille 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

The main attraction at this auction is a limited-edition Richard Mille watch that's expected to be the most expensive ever sold by Christie's New York. This particular model, the RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire, is one of only 10 ever made and is expected to fetch up to $4 million dollars; that's a lot of zeros. This Richard Mille watch was first released back in 2014 and is famous for its use of sapphire, which provides an unmatched level of transparency in which you can see the skeletonized tourbillon within. Each 3-part sapphire case took 40 days to produce, with the sapphire bridges requiring 400 hours of labor. To put that into perspective, 2 whole weeks have 336 hours.

These two-tone Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches go full on ’80s (and we love it)
Omega launches a two-tone gold Speedmaster Moonwatch
Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch bi-color

Omega watches have launched a bi-color Speedmaster Moonwatch in 18-karat Moonshine Gold or Sedna Gold combined with stainless steel. Anybody who browses the secondhand watch market will know two-tone Speedmasters are nothing new, however, this is the first time that a modern version of the Speedmaster Moonwatch will be available in bi-color metals. The two-tone design certainly takes us back to the 80s and 90s when experimenting with precious metals and steel was bold but common.
Omega Bi-Color Speedmaster Moonwatch: A history

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch chronograph became a part of American history in the 60s when a modern version was provided to NASA astronauts. And, if we're really talking American history, Sonny Crockett certainly popularized two-tone watches during the days of "Miami Vice," as did Christian Bale in "American Psycho," though those were Rolex.
