Amsterdam: How to dress and act like a local

Maybe it’s because I’m American, but I can spot our style from a mile away. I see it all over Amsterdam: The baseball cap, the oh-so-handy cargo pants, and a sporty, all-weather and near-fluorescent windbreaker. We stick out like sore thumbs in Euroland. Of course, standing out is not necessarily a bad thing, and it’s certainly a practical way of dressing. We are all for Cheapos embracing the style that makes them feel the most comfortable. But it’s also nice to blend in with the locals and not ...

The 25 Top-Rated Hotels In The World All Have One Thing In Common

Scheduling time away from our daily work grinds — while clutched in winter's cruel embrace — is a seasonal no-brainer. But, actually finding time to plan such an escape is never as dreamy as the vacation idea itself. The multiple moving pieces of travel-planning equations can be dizzying to put together, starting squarely at where the heck to go — and more importantly, where the heck to stay. Sure, you could kick things off with a from-scratch destination search...Or, you could consult a tighte...

Tried & Tested: Hotel N’vY, Geneva

Just a 5 minute walk from Lake Geneva and not too far from the town centre, Hotel N’vY is wonderfully located. But it’s location in and of itself is definitely not the only reason why we’d recommend this 4 star luxury hotel over and over again. Part of the Manotel Hotel Group and designed by hotel architect Patrick Ribes, Hotel N’vY is more of an art gallery meets hotel. The lobby is filled with eye-catching artwork from renowned artists such as David Cintract, Bruno Catalano and Damien R...

Christmas in Paris 2018: Le Bon Marché

I’ve saved the best for last for my Christmas windows for 2018.   Le Bon Marché continuously creates the most clever window and in-store displays all year round.   This season, Christmas trees literally come to life. Initially seeing just a bunch of trees lined up in the window, I spouted “What an understated bore! About 20 seconds later the trees spun around and were shaped like a woman’s body, outfitted in a white tutu and white beaded top; then they started kicking up their wooden ...

Travel Capsule: Eight Days in the Netherlands

Two weeks ago I flew back to the Netherlands to see my Dad and this is what I packed. I do the same trip every few months and have prepping for it down to a fine art. It takes me half an hour to decide what to bring after I’ve studied the weather forecast and finalized which pairs of shoes make the cut. I keep things simple by creating a daily outfit formula, and slotting my current favourite wardrobe items into the formula. The weather was a wet and windy 2 to 11 degrees Celsius (35 to 51 degre...

Four Sets of Toiletries

I have four sets of the exact same toiletries that I keep in different locations. By toiletries I mean beauty and skincare products, hair products, grooming products, make-up, and a bottle of Flower eau de parfum by Kenzo. I have one set to use in our home in Seattle. A second set that stays in our loft in Salt Lake City. A third set that I keep packed in a travelling toiletry bag in small travel-size containers.

The shortest of short shorts

A while ago I photographed this fella who appeared to be comfortably — or perhaps otherwise — in possession of Tokyo’s shortest shorts. It turns out, however, that he isn’t, as the man below boasts what can only be described as the shortest of very short, short shorts. A bold look that’s boosted even further by his cheeky little butterfly tattoo.

Jean Paul Gaultier Fashion Freak Show

It’s the feel good event in Paris this fall: Jean Paul Gaultier Fashion Freak Show.   The autobiographical extravaganza is a labor of love by the bad boy of fashion, Jean Paul Gaultier.
