In addition, climb to the top of the famous arch and take in the mighty Paris panorama.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

Worldwide news covered the devastating fire at the famous Notre-Dame Cathedral. On April 15, 2019, the cathedral sustained major damage. For example, its wooden roof and spire collapsed.

This masterpiece is easily recognized by its ornate ivory domes. The basilica’s interior is quite impressive. For example, its ceilings glitter with France’s largest mosaic. Beautifully, it depicts Jesus rising alongside the Virgin Mary and Joan of Arc. Lastly, be sure to take in the stunning, panoramic views from atop the Sacré-Coeur’s outdoor staircase.

WARHOL NAKED Will Sell For Record $300 Million

Record Breaking Art and Culture News – Will Billion Dollar Art Become The New Crypto?

The Cosmic “X” original painting titled “Warhol Naked” by American artist Jack Armstrong, is now slated to sell at $300 Million (USD). This is big news in the art world, as it will set a new record for American art, breaking the current ‘Marilyn’ record.

Andy Warhol’s Shot Sage Blue Marilyn painting is 1 of 5 silkscreen on linen paintings of film icon Marilyn Monroe. It was created in 1964 and originally sold in 1967 for only $5,000. Last year, the “Shot Sage Blue Marilyn” sold for $195 Million, making art the ultimate liquid asset in uncertain times. Jack Armstrong says “it is interesting that art is now completely financialized and a strategic part of every UHNW (Ultra-High Net Worth) portfolio.”  The previous record for an American artwork was $110.5 million set in 2017 for the 1982 “Untitled” painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Armstrong recently declined a $200 Million offer for his Warhol Naked masterpiece, saying he understands it should bring a minimum of $300 Million in this private sale. The acrylic on canvas painting is his seminal work out of only 100 Cosmic X original art paintings created between 1999-2019. Andy Warhol made 32 Soup Cans that were originally priced at $100 dollars each, yet only 4 sold in a gallery sale. The current record for a soup-can painting is now $37.5 million.

Armstrong states, “I can appreciate that ‘Salvator Mundi’, attributed to Leonardo da Vinci and sold to Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia (in the world’s most prestigious auction house) holds the current record price of $450 million for a painting, yet there is still a dispute regarding its authenticity.”

With banks becoming insolvent around the world, places to store portable wealth are becoming limited. You can’t carry a building with you and gold is heavy. Between Bitcoin and art, art is a physical asset you can transport at a moment’s notice. If the internet suddenly goes down, you can’t move crypto currency or digital assets, including NFT’s.

“Art will soon reach $1 Billion per painting. I believe Warhol Naked will achieve this record”, says For Super Rich owner, Eric Poirier, who is handling the painting sale.

Poirier continues, “In today’s art market, people want solid provenance and the rarest most ‘exclusive’ contemporary art. This is what will drive the market. This is why Armstrong’s Cosmic ‘X’ Art will break the billion dollar level, with a single painting as it’s rarity, style, provenance are unquestionable. With only 100 Paintings ever made by Armstrong and his DNA in every painting, there will never be an issue of authenticity with Cosmic X art.”

Armstrong says, “With over 3,300 hundred billionaires in the world, billion dollar paintings will become commonplace in the future. The most valuable paintings will deliver much higher returns than crypto, while art insiders achieve multi-billion dollar fortunes like early crypto investors.”

People will exhibit billion dollar paintings in homes and in private museums. A luxury billion dollar art investment will be shared with family and friends. Currently, rare art is the #1 portfolio hedge with ultra-high net worth clients. Family offices, Venture capital firms, hedge funds, corporations and top billionaires will adjust their portfolios to include the most iconic art.

Armstrong says, “Much has been written about Warhol the artist. Andy was very kind to people, even though he’s been viewed as avant-garde and socially connected to the world’s rich and famous. This painting captures the true ‘spirit’ of Andy, with its deep red color and bold signature in white. Warhol is an image Andy spent his life creating.”

Jack continues, “The Warhol Naked canvas is set to take its place at the top of the world’s most valuable art. The graffiti-like colors around the edges of ‘Warhol Naked’ and bubbling ripples of paint throughout the painting show the incredible energy just under the surface that Andy only revealed to his inner circle of friends. The magic of Warhol the Pop Art icon is symbolic in this painting, created just 13 years after Andy passed. It’s Andy at his deepest level, stripped of all his facade, wigs and humorous wit. It is Warhol Naked !

Armstrong says, “This will possibly be my final sale, as my health is a question mark these days. It would be nice to be alive to see it.  There are only 33 Cosmic X paintings left in my private collection.”


Mr. Armstrong is working with Eric Poirier, owner of For Super Rich. Mr. Poirier has the exclusive listing for “Warhol Naked.”

New Limited Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” Timepiece by Arnold & Son

Arnold & Son celebrates the year of the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Water Rabbit with a new artistic version of the brand’s Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece. The luxury watch brand continues its annual celebration of the traditional Chinese calendar. This time with this limited new series of eight high-precision moon-phase wristwatches. The Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece features a sculpted golden rabbit set against a backdrop of black aventurine. It poses next to a pagoda and is surrounded by waterfalls.

The Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece is symbolic, powerful, sophisticated, and full of meaning. Arnold & Son has sculpted the animal in a calm yet watchful pose. For example, it sits majestically against a backdrop of black aventurine, beneath a great mother-of-pearl moon. In Chinese Zodiac iconography, the water rabbit is the moon’s loyal companion. In addition to its fine watchmaking movement, the timepiece also displays masterful aesthetics.

The year of the Water Rabbit begins on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Based on the founding legends of the Chinese Zodiac, the rabbit inhabits a white jade moon, and serves as its pet. The rabbit embodies prudence and agility. As a result, when shown alongside the characteristic element of the year of the Water Rabbit, this animal promises longevity, peace, and prosperity.

Celestial light

Arnold & Son accommodates a large moon on the watch dial. In a large aperture, a turning disc reveals the waxing and waning of the night’s celestial body. Plus, one will see the appearance of the crescent moon and its light. The moon is crafted from mother-of-pearl with painted elements in relief. All are enhanced with Super-LumiNova.

Pale during the day, it transforms at night. This, it shines brightly and is adorned with scintillating details. The luxury watch’s dial contains aquatic elements. As a result, it adds further dimension to the scene. In the background, the disc bearing the star is made from deep black aventurine glass.

Artistic expression

The rabbit remains the dial’s key element. Sculpted in three dimensions, it is crafted from 18-karat rose gold. This time consuming work is worthy of the exceptional attention Arnold & Son has always paid to its limited series created in tribute to the Chinese Zodiac.

The same holds true for the watch dial. On a disc of black aventurine glass, the foliage and pagoda decorations are hand-painted with gold powder. Continuing, the Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece model is mounted on a glistening black alligator leather strap. Notice the visible platinum stitching and a lining of auspicious red alligator leather.

Expert watchmaking

Thanks to the watch manufacture’s research and development efforts, the moon phase display of this movement is extremely precise. For example, it will remain accurate for 122 years before deviating from the actual lunar cycle by one day.

Luxury Valentine’s Day Gifts For That Special Person in Your Life

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow February 14. Many people are trying to find that perfect luxury gift for that special person in their life. Thus, many Valentine’s Day gifts come straight from the heart. Valentine’s Day first began to be widely celebrated in Britain, around the 17th century.

Now, Valentine’s Day occurs every year on February 14. Across many countries around the world, this holiday is a tribute to love. Hence, gifts, flowers and candy are exchanged between people, all in the name of St. Valentine.

But in this Valentine’s Day gift guide from Bloomberg, the focus is on your loved one’s wrists, ears, and feet, plus with gifts to wear. Ultimately, the result is to proudly show how much they are truly loved.

Luxury Valentine’s Day gifts

Dinh Van Paris Double Coeurs R27 pendant necklace

For a truly unique piece, look to Dinh Van Paris, an independent French jewelry house founded by a former Cartier designer. It’s known for its minimalistic designs and signature notches in the pieces. The Double Coeurs R27 pendant necklace is the perfect way to show your love. It features two interlocking hearts, one set with pavé diamonds. $10,670, dinhvan.com

Louis Vuitton LV x YK LV Trainer Sneaker

The fashion world has gone dotty lately, thanks to Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with avant-garde Japanese artist and princess of polka dots Yayoi Kusama. She lent her signature dots to a host of Louis Vuitton products, but one of our favorites is the sneaker designed by the maison’s late designer, Virgil Abloh. It’s one of the subtler pieces in the collection (really), and it’s also available in black if the red is too bold. $1,360, louisvuitton.com

Winston Flowers One & Only Flowers

These flowers are a far cry from the typical Valentine’s Day arrangements you’ll find at most big florists. Winston Flower’s One & Only arrangement features dozens of pink- and red-hued blossoms, including several rare types of flowers. Four varieties of crimson roses and cherry-red Clooney ranunculus nestle alongside pink phalaenopsis orchids and tulips. It comes in a sleek grey vessel your beloved will use again and again. $750, winstonflowers.com

Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas Infinity

If you really want a wow factor that she can wear on her wrist, Bulgari’s slithering Serpenti watch has a new look this year. Instead of coiling steel or precious metals to create the bracelet, each scale is an individual rose-gold ring set with diamonds. Once assembled, the diamonds create a swirling motif that encircles the wrist. The dial features snow-set diamonds, and the bezel is diamond-set as well. In total, the watch has 486 diamonds. $85,500 (available in stores)

Cartier Tank Française

The unisex Tank Française watch has been a classic since its debut in 1996, and Cartier just launched a refreshed look for the collection. The changes are all slight but combine to create a more modern look with satin finishes, a slimmed-down crown, a more comfortable and flexible bracelet, and a sunray dial with applied Roman numerals. It’s available in three sizes in steel and yellow gold, with an option of diamonds on the gold models, so there’s a perfect watch for everyone. From $3,550, cartier.com

Oura Ring

If they love to track their steps, workouts and sleep but are trying to be more present and cutting down on distractions in 2023, the Oura ring is the perfect gift. The sleek ring looks just like a normal piece of jewelry, but it provides an impressive amount of information about sleep quality, fitness and health. The best part? No pesky notifications to draw their eye during your dates. It comes in silver, gold and black, and fashionistas will love the Gucci collaboration. From $299, ouraring.com

Cadar Endless Hoop Earrings

Heart jewelry can be polarizing. While it’s undoubtedly a romantic gesture, some people find the shape to be a bit cheesy. Cadar has an elegant solution. These heart-shaped earrings are worn like classic hoops so from the front, the heart is hidden. It’s only from the side that you can discern the romantic shape. These new earrings feature rubies, the first time the New York-based jeweler has included colored gemstones in its collection. From $2,900, cadar.com

Fendi Baguette Bag

Fendi’s iconic Baguette bag gets a bold, new look. This model features brilliant red metallic sequins in different shapes and sizes. It has the Italian house’s signature FF clasp and comes with two straps. The short strap is perfect for date night, and the long one makes it easy to wear all day. $4,300, fendi.com

Berluti Silk and Cotton Track Pants

Elevate their casual look with these silk and cotton track pants from Berluti. They’re extremely comfortable but have the tailored, elegant silhouette the Parisian house is known for. The back pocket has a leather patch with the brand’s logo, and the side pockets have hidden zippers to keep valuables safe. Your weekend coffee runs have never looked so glamorous. $1,180, berluti.com

The Beauty Sleeper & Silk Pillowcase

Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with this silk duo from Beauty Sleeper, a Copenhagen-based brand dedicated to perfecting sleep. The chic, oversized sleep mask blocks all light, helping ensure a restful night. Pair it with a matching silk pillowcase to complete the look. Why silk? Sleeping on silk pillowcases can prevent hair breakage and bedhead because the hair slips along the silky surface. It can also help your skin and hair retain moisture, because the material doesn’t absorb products as cotton can. 200 euros ($286) (pillowcase), 160 euros ($229) ( mask), thebeautysleeper.com
