Dear readers and fans of derektigges.com,

This is the dream of many people, owning a beautiful island somewhere in a tropical part of the world. Well, there’s news for you, an island can be yours and I’m not only talking to our readers with plenty of cash left after the crisis.
What are the prices for private islands? That depends on the location. Just as in real estate, location is key. Do you prefer an island in Norway, just off the coast of Spain, the Caribbean or near Africa? The typical tropical islands (and matching location) will cost a few more than small islands near let’s say, the North American coast. Think from $ 1,000,000 and up for your tropical dream. A lot less and you can be the proud owner of a sea-surrounded gem anywhere else.
Remote islands are easier to find, but then you need to take transportation costs is consideration. A stylish gentleman like you sure knows how to ride a powerboat and maybe even fly a plane. That helps, but if you don’t you’ll need to hire people to transport you and your friends to your island.
What is on the island? If there’s nothing there (the real deal), good luck. You’ll have to build a cottage, villa or other form of living space using the remainder of your savings. Constructing a building and infrastructure on an island is 1.5 times more expensive than on the main land. Again, take transportation into consideration. You can always go for the “Survivor” option and live, cook, shit and sleep outdoors.
So, why would you want to buy an island anyway? It’s the way of spending your holidays the cool way. Further, there’s nothing like a good story on parties and events. How many people do you know that own an island? It is really exclusive.
If you are not too sure about it, try renting an island for a few weeks to become familiar with the experience. Regarding to the boat and the airplane, every stylish man knows the FFF-rule: if it flies, floats or fucks: rent it. I disagree with the last F, but there’s a truth in the other two F’s.
Good luck with your island-hunt. The best place to start is here: http://www.vladi-private-islands.com.
With special thanks to Vladi Private Islands for the pictures.
Expensive like hell and I doubt it that you can wear them properly, but here are one of the most expensive shoes money can buy for your feet.
I don’t particularly like them and I’m not a big fan of these kind of sneakers but hey, I’m not a rapper or gangsta.
This silver shoe is not gold (duh) but that makes it a little bit more wearable. They are called the Air Jordan Silver Shoes, by Nike of course. You can buy these puppies with autograph (of Michael Jordan) on eBay for a mere $60,000.
So, I do attend a lot of store openings which is very cool. But now I’m involved in the organisation of a store opening. This means I’m on the other end of the deal. Why? Because this store offers a nice mix between brands for men and women and they sell Derek’s shirts.
How to get this done? First of all, we have to get the store ready for such an event. Redecorating the store in such a way that it’s ok to host a bunch of people without trashing the place. Next to that, we’ll have to arrange food, drinks, goodiebags, a red carpet, dj’s and all sorts of other stuff.
And most important of all; the invitations. Well, hereby I would like to invite you to the Grand Opening of LAAT store in Amsterdam. This party is on the 20th of April, starting from 16:00 till approximately 22:00 (officially).
The opening will be attended by lots of cool fashion people, celebrities and ofcourse many bloggers, press and other guests.
