Who is Richard “Richie Rich” Nektalov? The jeweler of the stars with Kanye West as a customer

Richie Rich, born Richard Nektalov, is part of a New York jewelry dynasty who rose to fame online when he turned his attention to social media branding,

The 29-year-old has 901k followers on Instagram and his A-list clients include Travis Scott, Adam Levine, Cara Delevingne, Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid, Conor McGregor, Ansel Elgort, Rita Ora.

He is known for a piece much loved by Kanye West called the “Cuban” – a necklace made up of two lengths of gold rope surrounded by smaller diamonds.

Richie says that small versions cost about $10,000, while larger variants range from about $100,000-$200,000.

Mahmud was born there in 1964, but four years later the Kamanis were forced to flee to Britain by mounting unrest and draconian labor laws that favored indigenous Kenyans.

They settled in Manchester, where the enterprising Abdullah sold handbags at a market stall to feed his family, before investing in real estate and founding the wholesale textile business, Pinstripe, where Mahmud worked, using family ties in India to buy clothes. .

By the early 2000s, the company was selling nearly £50 million worth of clothing a year to household names such as New Look, Primark and Philip Green’s Topshop.

Seeing the potential in the growth of the internet, Mahmud established his online store in 2006 that would supply their own branded fashion at rock bottom prices, starting with just three employees and operating out of a warehouse in Manchester.

Today, it has more than 2,900 employees and celebrity advocates, including everyone from Little Mix to Tallia Storm.

Before founding PrettyLittleThing, Umar was an amateur boxer and playboy who cared only about partying and chasing women. Now he calls this rather hedonistic lifestyle “work.”

He lives a very international lifestyle and his Instragram feed makes him part of the jetsettter crowd through and through.

One day, he’s “refilling with vitamin D” in the infinity pool of Italy’s luxurious Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel, where a suite with a sea view will set you back nearly £3,000 a night. Next time, he’ll be at the wheel of a Riva yacht sailing along the Amalfi Coast before posing on the hood of his £264,000 Rolls-Royce Dawn in Beverly Hills.

You’ll find him lunching at Nobu in Malibu, California, wearing a pair of £450 Gucci slippers, with a gold Rolex on his arm. He hangs out with rapper P Diddy at the Grammys and Kylie Jenner at the Coachella music festival in California. All events are, of course, captured on his smartphone, which has a £790 Louis Vuitton cover.
