Cycling 4 Soup

Cycling 4 Soup was born out of this athletic no man’s land, the brain-child of Alvaro De La Camara, amateur triathlete and cyclist, and Michael Drummond, commercial photographer. The collaborators roused interest posting short videos and teaser content on social media, hinting at what would become Batch 1.

11 Tips To Keep Your Hair Healthy

We all want our hair to look great if not stunning. However, for that to be within realistic reach, your hair needs to be kept in really healthy condition. Whilst booking into the salon for a professional haircut is the obvious first step, no salon treatments, hair masks, or stylish haircuts will do more than regular maintenance. Dirt, dandruff, and excessive scalp buildup can lead to hair loss and other major hair issues. Unfortunately, all of these can also be caused by improper home care. Irregular washing, frequent styling, wearing tight ponytails – if you’re guilty of any of those, you might be inadvertently damaging your hair. If you want…

Albert Watson Creating Photographs

I’ve had a very long journey in photography. It’s been a deep, endless passion for me. From the first minute I picked up a camera, I’ve had that passion and, when I was shooting last week, I still had that passion.

The Drifters

The Drifters

“Ten years ago, even before the migration crisis dominated the political and media landscape in Europe, I was increasingly interested in ideas around freedom of movement,” says The Drifters Director Benjamin Bond. “I had spent some time in Senegal working on the music concert ‘Africa Live’ for PBS. I met a lot of West African musicians and spoke to a lot of local people, there were so many young people leaving Africa on foot. That’s a big story now but it wasn’t then. I became interested in the disparity between where I could go and what I could do versus people who couldn’t even leave their countries.” With Bond’s directorial…

Alpina – Startimer Pilot Chronograph

Like many Swiss watchmaking dynasties, Alpina can trace its founding back to the turn of the nineteenth century – 1883 to be precise – by Gottlieb Hauser, a watchmaker in Winterthur, who also established the Swiss Watchmakers Corporation (Union Horlogère Suisse).

MENTAL HEALTH FOR THE MODERN AGE

Playing National League rugby on that fateful Saturday, the imposing second rower launched himself into a tackle, as he’d done a thousand times before. On this occasion, though, a sudden change of direction by the opponent meant James’ neck was badly impacted in the collision.

Nemesis ONE Catamaran

Nemesis ONE

It seems a little on-the-nose titling any editorial after the name of the yacht. But given the gravitas of the Nemesis project, I thought I would cut to the chase. Not since the 118 WallyPower have I been so enamoured by a vessel. A 101m autonomous hydrofoil catamaran with a beam of more than 39m is worthy of the Thomas Crown Affair, by my standard.

The Hugh Laurie Edition

Hugh Laurie is a veritable national treasure, and here we talk about the freedom that acting, music and motorbiking affords him. We also sit down with former rugby player James Gwinnett and his colleagues at start-up 87% to discuss his experiences with mental health, as well as the stigma that frustratingly still surrounds the subject.

La Katz – Silken Luxury

When slipping into one of the elegant and timeless pieces of silken luxury from La Katz, you can feel the quality and the care that has gone into its production. The touch of the natural, organic, toxin-free silk on one’s skin leaves a luxurious and comforting feeling.

Chase’ing Christmas

Despite our best efforts, to be a locavore does not come without its challenges. Lucky enough for us, the Chase family decided to turn their 300 acres of potato fields into premium vodka and gin as early as 2008, founding the Chase Distillery.

Launer Lizard Skin Wallet

It’s said The Queen owns over 200 Launer bags. Indeed, the royal family’s relationship with Launer dates back to the 1950s, when the Queen Mother’s eye was caught by the company’s exquisite leather designs. It was she who introduced her daughter to the brand with the gift of a handbag – and the rest is history.

Ashling Park

Ashling Park’s 2014 Rosé is a confident number amongst its peers. Made from 80% Pinot Noir grapes and 20% Pinot Meunier on the family’s 50-acre estate in the hamlet of West Ashling in the South Downs.
