Fingertips never forget that particular feel. It’s sinfully soft and elegant, shimmering and confident. My first encounter was ten yeas ago, stepping onto a blackened show-room floor in Los Angeles. I turned and there to the left dramatically and strategically spot-lit, a 44 quietly eyeing me up. Dyed a blue so dark, it was on...

Berliners beware, GabrielDesigns is back in town with the Nikon. You will be shot. And you will be headlined. First up was this chap I spied carting his bicycle up the stairs of Bernauerstra├če U8. After a quick phone call, he jumped onto his machine to presumably head towards Mauerpark. But he looked back just...

Adventuring with Solal Fakiel of HiGH Magazine, we caught Daniel Sheriff fresh back from New York and looking suspiciously like a Brooklyn hipster.

Europe is shooting fast into autumn and coats are the focus but Tel Aviv is still lingering in summer mode; meaning the shorts haven’t been put away. Though not a personal style, one can appreciate, beach life has it’s own look as well. Combined with a straw fedora, the style suddenly goes from beach bum...

This is my favourite shot from Goodwood Revival 2012. As all my friends know, I personally have a particular interest in red trous, though I’ve been unable to find the perfect colored pair yet. This young chap seems to share the same love not only for RED but also the knowledge for showing his own...

Italians – in this case, Massimo Delbo, classic cars writer – are the kings of looking debonair while combining patterns and colours, fabrics and cuts from recent years and ages past. Luca Rubinacci would be another fantastic example. These gentlemen have finessed the art of classy every-day fashion, easily standing out in a crowd without...

At the Goodwood Revival, this lovely lady wouldn’t allow me a photo until her fur stole was draped around her shoulders, it “completes my look, young sir!”

“…future politicians in white campaign uniforms and boating hats march about chanting: ‘Every-BODY vote for Dan, he is every-BODY’s man!‘ while the ladies at The Telegraph wearing cotton overalls and classic driving hats threaten the day’s paper to be sold out within the hour. Lord March, himself present at the fair in an immaculate double-breasted...

+ The Pocket Square

This is an extremely sad confession – the dry cleaners in Berlin stole a vintage burgundy and gold Christian Dior pocket square, a gift from a dear friend. You see, in times past, the “gentlemen” – including my father – prided themselves in personal collections of handkerchiefs and pocket squares. This etiquette, I believe was...

+ The Morning Writer

A strikingly youthful face adorned with silver-streaked hair. The solitary figure in black sits at the Jaffa Port, contemplatively looking out over the water and the horizon. Only when the words are perfectly composed, are they allowed onto the sheets beneath her fingers.
