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!”

This was news for GabrielDesigns: Ralph Lauren produces paint. Yes the kind you apply on your walls using buckets and rollers. And even more startling, there’s a proper boutique here in Tel Aviv called “The Paint Store“. So camera in hand, I popped up the street to confirm. Located at HaHashmal 33 under a RL-blue...

You would assume she’s reading… But oh no, she was definitely there to be seen. Wearing a startling orange-red coat – Jil Sander to be suspected – seated front row along rue Saint-Antoine, this young lady never turned a single page, her eyes hawked on the passing stream of Parisians. As people-watching is a national...

+ VOIX: The Fundamental Group

Stephen pounds down the stairs from the design studio into the kitchen, scrambling to catch his flight with half hour to go. We assume it’s a mad dash to meet a client. In contrast, Gunnar languidly disappears for milk to make us some coffee. THE morning necessity taken care of, GabrielDesigns is then introduced to...

+ Mille Miglia, May 17

700 metres above sea level lies San Marino, one of the checkpoints of the Mille Miglia. The Mercedes-Benz team is there early, waiting with cups of cappuccino and sunglasses on. The view is absolutely stunning as the cars enter the Palazzo Publico piazza! Details on mb.mercedes-benz.com soon.

The bloke at Border Control doesn’t like me much. The American passport is an instant failure. The immigration/visa stamps from Italy, France, Germany, Israel, South Korea…oh the frown deepens. “Please step this way Sir…” (…40 mins later…) There’s a “Welcome to London” sign just outside the Border Control exit at Gatwick Airport. The welcome team...

“Pancakes. I need to start with something ordinary. You know…American” she asserts, tossing her dark hair back into the wind. The sharp clip of London english counters the idea of an American brunch dream. “Cafe at Engelbecken?” the sunglasses speak, her face reflected in his shades against a blue February sky. They step out into...

The U8 is essentially the metro line of the eccentric and the straight up weird. And sometimes it crosses into the creative. The latest sighting was gentleman who kept twitching his mouth into a sly smile and occasionally wringing his hand, making his gold watch tinkle. But of note was his mad mustard-yellow hawaiian shirt...

It’s a brisky 15 degrees in Berlin with sunny skies, making it feel identical to a NYC autumn day. Red trousers seemed to be ideal for the weather and it seems everyone in Berlin agrees on the red groove today! Bon weekend!

+ grilling on chauseestr.

The key is PONZU sauce. Derived from the aromatic yuzu citrus, ponzu sauce is the key to a glorious Saturday afternoon BBQ, and impossible to find in Berlin. Thankfully a source just returned from the faraway nation called The States, wielding a bottle of this delicious and magically tangy weapon. For the burger, you know...
