Paul is a stylist we’ve seen grow and grow since her collaboration with us in 2015. Looking back to that time, we’re still shocked that she was surprised that she got invited to our first Lookbook.

In case you didn’t notice yet, Paul is a woman that can actually dress better that most of the men you know (facts!). She did it again with this incredible outfit that she created.

From the mix of patterns and colours, to the accessories that she brings to the table; Paul always find a way to turn a regular blazer into a masterpiece.

Even though she  wears men clothes, Paul has a special eye for details that seems to reveal her femine and artistic side a little more.

This is definitely a stylist to watch because 2017 looks very promising for her. She’s been making headlines and affirming her status through the years and the fashion world now opens their arms wide open for this young creative.

If there is one thing we’ve learned from her is the fact that there is no limit to where your creativity can take you!

What If Tony Montana Was Actually The Biggest Hater Ever?

”All I Got In This World Is My Balls & My Word”

Tony Montana Was A Real Boss Or Just A Hater?

It’s funny what we retain from certain movies, I remember how I used to glorify Tony Montana when I first saw Scarface. Now that I’m an entrepreneur myself, I feel very different about the iconic Cuban gangster.

Don’t get me wrong, Scarface is a phenomenal movie. It has influenced many different cultures whether it’s Hip Hop, Cinema and let’s not forget all of the Tony Montana’s famous lines.

We vividly remember the mansions he had, the cars, the hot woman, the lifestyle, his “balls and his words”  and the less reluctant part where he is sniffing his life away. My question to you is simple :


What Did Tony Had To Do To Get there?

Some people will pinpoint his business deals and the fact that he became a respected gangster in Little Havana. Others might think it’s because he was ruthless and had a Suge Knight type of approach to things.

In reality, none of this would’ve been possible if it wasn’t for the murder of Frank who was actually his boss. Think about it, Frank gave him everything, power, money and glory but at the end, Tony wanted the throne regardless of what he had to do for it.

Today we will highlight why Tony Montana was actually the biggest hater ever and not the gangster some of us revered even decades after!

Tony Was Envious Of Others (Especially Frank)

It’s one thing to want a better life for yourself  but it’s another thing when this involves to take away everything from your boss.

In life, it seems like you either work your way up or you take someone else’s spot. Society makes you forget that it’s a predator versus prey world and we always admire those who toss the rules in the bushes.

Tony Montana was ambitious but it was always combined with a bitterness for the next man’s success. Tony would often feel upset about Frank’s lavish lifestyle, Frank’s wife and his power.


Feeling better, smarter and bigger than Frank; Tony made several moves behind Lopez’ back to the point where their partnership got close to the hedge.  What we saw as confidence and drive was in fact a lack of patience and judgement from Tony.

Frank told him that building an empire would take time and steps to achieve it. Even though Tony made it, we all know how the movie ends right?

Tony Couldn’t See His Best Friend Happier Than Him

Manny and Tony’s relationship was a tv moment in itself (at least before the end). We saw them as brothers trying to escape the struggle but as you know money and power divide men and they couldn’t escape that.

Beyond being partners in crime, business associates and cousins, they had a special bond. They’ve been through the worst together from the concentration camps to the chainsaw scene and they kept their eyes on the prize.

Further in the movie, we saw the worst from Tony Montana when he had his back against the wall. His wife turned her back on him and he was caught up between enemy lines. There’s only one person that was willing to stand by him  : Manny (and his “little friend” of course).


Everything was all good just a week ago” but then Manny got married; even worst, he got engaged to Tony’s sister. We can argue for hours about Montana’s strange relationship with his sister but that’s not the point here.

In fact, when you really think about it this wedding and love they had for each other was the only thing that Tony couldn’t buy or take by force. This was the missing link to his “dream life” and boss status.

As a competitive spirit and undercover hater, he shot his own friend and partner. In Montana’s mind it was loud and clear:

“If I Can’t Have This, You Can’t Neither!”

Tony Got High On His Own Supply (On his Success Too)

When Tony got to the top, we saw that a major part of his downfall was the fact that he wasn’t clear minded due to his cocaine usage.

I always felt like this part of the movie was actually a metaphor that the viewer should figure out for himself. To me, it was a representation of Tony’s obsession about his success; his new drug.


For the most part, you would see him do coke when he would close a deal or when his business progressed. The drug you see him snort is actually a dangerous mix of his ego and his new “the world is mine” attitude.

This reminds us that no matter how successful you get, you should never look down at others or become delusional about your success. Tony had his taste of the good life but this feeling of superiority became an “addiction” to him.

My Two Cents

Even though Tony was not exactly how we first envisioned him, he remains an iconic character that still stimulates our imagination and admiration. We wanted to highlight the darker side of Tony and finally unveil the mask on his hating tendencies.

I think this fascination we have for Tony Montana reveals a lot of things about our society. Do we respect people for their real values or for what they can show us? Being a boss is represented materialistically or with way you act?


One thing is for sure, Alpacino made this character an enigma we couldn’t totally solve even decades later!
