I met Karl Lagerfeld for the first time in 2006 because (again) of Stephen and James. Harper’s Bazaar had commissioned me to shoot his portrait in various iconic New York locations. It was very nerve-racking; there were a lot of models and a lot that could go wrong.
Nothing wakes you up like chatting to Omid Djalili on a Monday morning. Instantly recognisable and immediately comforting, sitting down with Omid feels like catching up with an old friend within seconds of the interview commencing.
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.
My first piece of wearable tech came in the form of a Casio CMD 40 wristwatch. I adored that ergonomically-challenged timepiece with every neuron I had pulsating through my nine-year-old brain. So much so that, when I lost it after a mere six months, I pestered my mother to buy me another one until she relented.
From the everday family needs to world travel, real estate, entertainment planning and beyond. When your holdings and interests are a global affair, you need a management team that are beyond reproach.
Dr Tunc Tiryaki is one of the world’s most preeminent surgeons specialising in pioneering techniques, such as the mini and micro facelift and regenerative cell treatments that will leave you looking luminous post-lockdown.
Let’s be honest. If I have to read, write or smile through another terse sentiment on how the last year has been, I might just throw my laptop out of the window. So let’s just jump straight into it. How are you sleeping?
I’ve spoken many times over the undulating course of the last year about Covid and its effect on the industry I not only work within, but love dearly. More than just survival, the stirring efforts made by so many across beauty and wellness to bring their customers closer to their brand is something that deserves celebrating in itself.
With less than a year to go till the XXIV Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, we sat down with Crystal Globe winner and Team GB Big Air phenomenon, Katie Ormerod, to talk lockdown training and going for gold.

Confrontational, disruptive, yet unmissable, Lincoln Townley’s paintings have placed him firmly at the front and centre of the British contemporary art scene for the past ten years.
The main issue of the pandemic – and why it stands apart from other market challenges – has been one of logistics. It’s not that foreign investors don’t want to buy in London, it’s that they simply cannot get here to do so.

Phil Hanson, Asian Le Mans Series Champion in 2016, youngest overall Le Mans 24 Hour racer in 2017, débuted at Daytona in 2018. I’m not sure what Hanson achieved in 2019, presumably turning water into wine. But in 2020, in a year so tumultuous that governments fell, Hanson has taken the holy grail of motorsport. A win at Le Mans in the LMP2 series. What’s next, stigmata?
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.
Founded in the mid-1800s by Clemente Santi, a pharmaceutical graduate from Pisa University, the Biondi Santi family lineage of wine production and curation dates back to the middle ages.
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.
