Legendary Michael Schumacher, who won five titles for Ferrari, was being paid $31 million per year which puts him slightly in the shadow compared to Vettel’s future earnings. Ferrari has always taken the sport especially seriously, but since 2007, Ferrari hasn’t captured a driver’s title. Ferrari will start a new chapter with a hope that Sebastian would be able to return the title.
“The voice inside me, the hunger to do something new, was bigger. It was not the easiest decision but you have to listen to your heart,” said Vettel.
Winning 39 races and four consecutive championships, Vettel had dominated the sport in recent years. Although not yet officially conformed, for next year likely to sign a large contract is Fernando Alson, the man that Vettel replaced at Ferrari. Another novelty is that the McLaren team will get a new Honda engine next year.
Red Bull boss Christian Horner said: “All I can do is wish him the very, very best for the future. He will still be close to our hearts at Red Bull, but on January 1 he will be a competitor. Obviously Ferrari have made him a very attractive offer.”

The Spring season sees a lot of elements from the 1970s being incorporated into the male wardrobes. Rich earthly tones, bold geometric patterns and the revival of the statement shearling coat are making a comeback and being reimagined in fresh ways.
Statement fabrics take centre stage with moleskins and corduroy trousers in eye-catching 1970s colours, such as chocolate brown, dark ochre and deep orange. Separates remain key with cashmere, silk and linen being the predominant fabrics of choice as evidenced by Kiton’s wearable sports jackets.
Amongst British tailors channelling the 1970s it’s worth mentioning Savile Row’s Richard Anderson, in its made-to-order range. Their russet cotton or velvet corduroys (priced at £195) are classy and dapper at the same time with customers being able to choose between the amber corduroy three-piece suit (priced at £1,400; double-breasted version, £1,195), a fawn moleskin two-piece (£1,300) that is casual, and a rust velvet-cord three-piece (from £1,350) that makes an edgy statement. The masculinity of the 1970s shines through in the longer-fitted jackets with broader lapels, high armholes and trousers fuller through the top of the leg.
Elsewhere, Prada’s rich gabardine designs are superb in their retro styling as made evident by a rust suit (£2,190), olive shirt (£535) and a chocolate crepe de Chine scarf (£170), while versions in brown gabardine (£2,175) are worth mentioning too, with their silvery sheen and shawl collars boasting the appeal of vintage eveningwear.
Footwear doesn’t fall behind the current tendencies as evidenced by Jimmy Choo’s ubiquitous elegance that shines through in the new Ronan zip boot (£550) in deep burgundy, brown or black made from high-quality calfskin, or the more robust suede Roger (£650) with dramatic toe-caps.

New York-based conceptual artist Barbara Bloom’s limited-edition cigar boxes are exquisitely-designed and practical at the same time. Inspired by the silver version gifted to the father of modern psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud by a patient in the far-away 1903, the set features 15 sleek boxes (9in x 6in x 3-1/4in). Each is a testament to her talent as an artist and designer as it displays a staggering blend of style, attention to detail and minimalistic beauty. All boxes are handcrafted, using the finest in silver and polished wood.
Apart from the fine craftsmanship, another detail worth mentioning are the witty inscriptions Bloom features on the boxes for a humorous twist. Her personal edition displays the words “Sometimes an inscription is just an inscription” in a nod to Freud’s famous statement “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”.
When asked the designer says she discovered Freud’s original case in the archives of New York’s Jewish Museum while working on the installation of her As It Were…So to Speak: A Museum Collection in Dialogue with Barbara Bloomexhibition in 2013, and was instantly drawn to its aesthetics, inscription – “Christmas, 1903”.
Inspired by his deep love for cigars as well as the subliminal, Bloom embarked on a venture to create something truly significant that could serve both as a holiday gift as well as an aesthetically pleasing accessory. They sell for$2,500 each and present a unique opportunity to own or gift something exquisite, inspired by an icon.
The member of the Ghost family is the essence of Rolls-Royce in its simplest, purest form – it’s basically class incarnate. Dramatic and graceful, the unique blend of cutting-edge technology and luxurious design creates the ultimate dynamic drive. In the true style of the brand the extension of their Ghost series is a powerful, yet subtle automobile that retains the BMW-derived, 563bhp, 12-cylinder, 6.6-litre engine of its predecessor. The main changes are on the aesthetic front and barely visible, although the extra 17 cm of legroom is definitely worth noting.
In terms of technology – the Rolls Royce Ghost II adopts the “satellite-aided transmission” used in the two-door Wraith model for better, smoother navigation. The new slick “infotainment” set-up is controlled by a console-mounted knob with a touchscreen top and is nothing short of impressive. In addition to the on-board wifi and aircraft-style head-up display projected onto the windscreen there is voice-command system to complete the luxurious experience.
The brand has retained the signature, instantly-recognisable shape of the LED headlights, but has accentuated the powerful look of the car with a subtle sculpting of the bumper. In combination with the chrome finishes on the lower grille, the Ghost II boasts a contemporary feel in addition to uncompromising proportion and elegance. A pleasant surprise is the fact that it hasn’t lost speed at the expense of its truck-like 2.6 tonnes and is able to remain unfeasibly fast.
The exquisitely-finished black veneer, seashell leather and lambswool floor mats create an interior that is difficult to be outmatched in luxury and comfort. Every single detail – the folding picnic tables, massage seats, panoramic sunroof and 18-speaker sound system have been tailored specifically to the Ghost’s interior for a superb feel and look.
All in all – it delivers in terms of performance, appearance and driving experience. The retail price hasn’t been announced yet, although the previous model is available for the base price of $250,000, so it’s safe to presume the sequel will put it in the stratosphere of the automotive market.

A buttercup-hued scarf finished with nandi bulls atop a rainbow of hand-embroidered roses sells for the modest sum of £215. The vibrant colours of the decorations contrast beautifully with the delicate grey nuance of the fabric.
The brand’s newest collection of 100 per cent natural-dye shawls starts at £158 and features a dazzling array of intricately-decorated pieces that will complement any outfit. But it’s not all appearance and there are products to fit every taste and necessity, such as the more practical metre-long, unembellished travel-blanket-cum-über-wrap that retails for £985. The quality of every single piece shines through in the materials as well as the execution of the design with the fabric being soft and smooth to touch.
The brand secret lies in making few changes to the traditional Kashmiri styles, building on top of a design that has proven durable over centuries. Their breathtakingly intricate embroidery is the ultimate testament to luxurious excess as well as the classiest form of demonstrating stature and style.
