The video for BBHMM is without a doubt the best thing to happen to pop music and the pop visual game in weeks, since I literally cannot remember when I was last in such a good mood purely due to the fact that a music video had dropped.
Directed by Rihanna herself, alongside Megaforce and no doubt FROM the mind of Rih-Rih herself, the film references, the sheer contemporary brilliance of the cultural masterpiece. She took her time and got it right – my favourite song of the year (well, at least one of them), got an equally perfect video to go with it.
It is nothing less than iconic. Thank you Rihanna. Oh and as for the GIFs:
Words cannot – narrative driven had to be the way to go for this. I am legit so excited. Yes Rih-Rih! The clip for Bitch Better Have My Money aka BBHMM is directed by Rihanna and Megaforce and produced by Bridgitte Pugh & Ciarra Pardo.
Two nights ago, I had the incredible honour of attending the Eden Sessions courtesy of the progressive, forward thinking team at ASUS. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the tech company – ASUS have developed a device fondly known as the CHI or Transformer Book – a hybrid device that functions as both a laptop and a tablet. For me personally, the device couldn’t be any more ideal. I travel a lot and often take a laptop and a tablet separately – the ASUS Transformer Book completely eliminates excess weight and functions seamlessly allowing the two folds to detach completely and yet remain fully functional.
It’s understandable that visual and video engagement are big parts of the CHI manifesto – with a 0.3 MP Front Camera and 2 MP Rear Camera – so photographing the experience and Paloma Faith’s show at Eden (which is one of the most beautiful places in the whole of the UK as you can see below) felt incredibly natural.
Hybrid technology is something that I strongly believe in – allowing a human being to be as light weight and hyper functional at the same time. The ASUS Chi absolutely allows this. You can learn more here.

At London Collections: Men, myself and my design partner Ada Zanditon unveiled Ada + Nik SS16: SYN (for our tech-advanced dark-matter menswear brand) through an Immersive Experience – a pop up world of Ada + Nik – in an exclusive gallery space in the heart of London’s West End (the British Fashion Council’s new home for Fashion Week).
SYN, meaning “co-” or “with” in Greek – symbolic of the Ada + Nik plus sign (emoji: +) was prevalent throughout every element of the creative journey for the duo for SS16, bringing to life the attitude of how we move forward through positive co-existence.
