While Drake’s dance moves from the video “Hotline Bling” have gotten the majority of the press, it’s the background that piqued other’s interest. The minimalist frames bathed in intense light are reminiscent of an artist quite familiar to The Shops at Crystals – James Turrell. The artist, famed for his use of light and space to alter the mind, has two installations at Crystals, “Shards of Light” on the third floor and “Akhob” situation inside Louis Vuitton.
While it was rumored that Turrell actually worked on the video with the rapper, he issued a statement stating that while he was flattered “… neither I nor any of my woes was involved in any way in the making of the Hotline Bling video.” Seems Turrell might know a thing or two about Drake as well.

TAG Heuer has a long history of having attractive athletes as ambassadors for the brand. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lewis Hamilton and Maria Sharapova are just a few of the Swiss brand’s former pretty faces. But they had yet to capitalize on America’s favorite sport football - until now.
TAG Heuer tapped Tom Brady as its newest ambassador, and while the star quarterback’s not without controversy, it’s safe to say with his supermodel wife and turns modeling in high-fashion magazines he’s a natural choice for the esteemed watch brand. With the naming of Brady, TAG Heuer also presented the new Carrera - Heuer 01 as the first piece in a new collection, and its tag line, “Don’t Crack Under Pressure,” is something the footballer should know a thing or two about.
