Yes he's at it again... This time, making 'Freezing Your Butt Off'; literally; look cool! The Ad Campaign is cheeky, controversial and classy, all at the same time- 'R' for REMI, 'R' for RACY...feat your eyes here.
The TRI COLLECTION is a clothing brand and the brain-child of Katrina Brathwaite a student of the London College of Fashion. The college's mission is, "fashion the future". and the 26 year old is certainly doing that.
The name "TRI" is three-fold in origin:
(1) "TRI" is the shortened version of her name as first bestowed by her friend Damien Reveira at Harrison College- most people called her "Kat" for short and he wanted to stand-out from the rest of the pack so called her "Tri";
(2) "TRI" (pronounced "tree") is how the fashion designer sees herself; as a symbol of strength with roots that run deep- inspiring others while remaining grounded no matter what life throws her way.
(3) "TRI" is how bajans (what Barbadians call themselves) pronounce the number three- three biblically is seen as the number of completion, perfection and balance.
Katrina describes herself as, "a proud bajan woman" and draws her inspiration from admiration of the female form; TRI COLLECTION is for confident women only and the designer wants every woman to celebrate her inner Goddess with every stride.

One can be forgiven for seeing a jockey as just, a person who rides horses professionally; after all the horse is the real star... Until you meet one with skin so perfect that it looks painted; it couldn't really be that flawless could it? Teeth and a smile so bright it makes you want to go get laser whitening too; till you discover he's never had it done and only seen a dentist twice in his 21 years of life! Shoulders, that match more perfectly with a suit than a tie does and a gaze more focused than your cat. One could be forgiven for thinking you'd have to be speaking about a model, not a jockey! That is until you see THIS face...
His calm, composed but steely confidence is tempered by a humility that is by far his most endearing trait. Refreshing in a world where beauty and big egos seem to go hand in hand.
Unafraid of the storms life can bring; Nakeem's grounded demeanor may be attributed to his having to surmount his own share of challenges having lost two siblings (brothers) in tragic circumstances; as a jockey; model and person; getting-up dusting-off and riding again is much more than an empty platitude, its his personal story.
Whatever he does he gives it his all and takes the plunge.
As for the horse; no one remembers who he is; its the rider that's the star...Jockey or Model all bets are on Nakeem! Cool, charming, confident, remember the face and reset your watches, he's already ahead of the pack...Nakeem's time is now! All images shot by British photographer Matt Carr on location in Barbados.
