Why is it different? Not only is it designed exquisitely but it’s super light weight and the 4 wheel structure with the external cane allows for a completely flat bottom with lots of extra carry space and a level platform on top for a handbag. As I race around airports, cities, fashion centres or just walking to work the Horizon gives me that little bit of extra balance, while looking elegant and being multi functional.
Best Hotel you’ve ever stayed in and why?
Le Royal Monceau, Avenue Hoche, Paris.
Designed by Philippe Starck the Parisian palace hotel Le Royal Monceau is a designers dream.
Every room and every piece of furniture, to every carefully orchestrated brush stroke on the ceiling of the dining room has been executed with a designers eye.
Starck’s clever design wit engages you, from the 23 chandeliers in the stairwell on the way to the restaurant bathrooms, to the enormously oversized lampshades and the interior design individuality of every room and suite. All the wonderful design journey you experience while staying at Le Royal Monceau just adds to the outstanding service you receive from all the staff at the hotel.
Every staff member has the uncanny knack of making you feel like you are the only guest staying there and that you have returned home to special friends.
It's design heaven.
Best restaurant in the world and why?
Le Plage de Graniers, Saint Tropez, FR.
Situated on the water's edge of a small, quiet sleepy beach in the gulf of Saint Tropez and a 10 minute stroll from the bustling port of Saint Tropez lies Le Plage de Graniers restaurant.
While the south of France is famous for dancing on tables and very loud music, lunch time hosts and co owners Virginie and Boo Boo have created a relaxed and quiet piece of beach paradise.
They serve crisp green salads mixed with Thai mussels and fresh lobsters and the freshest catch of the day. Predominantly seafood, tasty vegetarian and meat dishes are also served.
Swim, sunbake and eat all day and into the evening on either the terrace, sun bed or beach, then walk or take the chauffeur driven electric mini moke style car home. It is fun and the food is great.
