Mikhail relies on Huawei's P30 Pro for daily use, and its easy to see why. The smartphone is equipped with a Leica quad-camera system which works even better since it's combined with Huawei's own sensor. The 40-megapixel camera also has a super zoom lens and ultra-wide-angle lens. It's the camera system to end all camera systems.

You can pretty much never separate a movie director from his cap. Mikhail has a bunch on rotation, but he uses his own customized Red camera cap the most along with his black Supreme and Balenciaga caps.

Comfort is key when you're constantly on-the-go. While sweatpants are an easy option for bottoms, nothing quite beats a lived-in pair of jeans, especially Levi's 511s.

The Supreme part of Mikhail's essentials starts here. His first pick is this Supreme and Cordura collab backpack to lug all of his daily needs. It's a style statement for sure, but it can also carry everything you need and more. Probably not a director's chair, however.

We weren't kidding when we said Mikhail Red's essentials included a Supreme director's chair. Made form Appalachian beech hardwood, the director's chair features the standard canvas back and seat. There is, of course, that instantly recognized Supreme red and, you know, the printed logos on the front and back.
