One of my favourite people – photographer and style icon in her own right, Kit Lee (aka Styleslicker) and I spent some time playing around on camera today. We spent a week together in Hong Kong – Kit is based between the two cities and has the most incredible Instagram and blog, both of which you should check out. Here’s to more of this, Kit!

During New York Fashion Week, I had the honour of being the first ever guest at re-birthed Knickerbocker Hotel on Times Square. Needless to say, the experience was beyond fantastic with hospitality that could only be rivalled by the finest establishments in the world. I was privy to the construction taking place on the roof for the terrace bar which is set to be monochromatic heaven in midtown. The hotel has been under the creative direction of hospitality legend Jeff David who has fused refined history with contemporary in a completely unique manner.

This season I had the pleasure of teaming up with Louis Vuitton once again (we first partnered on a guide to The Art of Packing and the Selfridges launch) to celebrate the new store at Heathrow Terminal 5. The T5 store is the European Airside store for the brand, anticipating the needs of the modern traveller, which of course makes sense considering Vuitton’s timeless relationship with the evolution of Air Travel. The facade of the store also feature a digital art piece by the French Artist Ange Leccia, worth noting for the next time you are there!
As you can see, I also had the opportunity to customise one of my favourite ever Louis Vuitton items – the Damier Graphite Keepall Bandouliere 45 and shoot a digital editorial with Hanna Hillier and The Gentleman’s Journal. You can read the full piece here.
