editor’s letter

OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS these Editor’s Letters have become many things. Always attached at root, however tenuously, to the idea of travel, and how it weaves in and out of my life, they are also a love letter to my children, a scrapbook of memories, a reality check, a catalogue of what a hopeless traveller I am. They are a confession, a frontal-lobe outpouring of whatever is troubling me (I am always acutely embarrassed when I meet people who actually read them. I write them, sure, but seem to have no awareness that they are then out in the world). They are a yearning, certainly, and a homage to how light, curiosity and adventure can so often be the balm. They are also absolutely, resolutely, the last thing that gets…

ROSETTA GETTY Holiday Style Guide (p87) ‘Every year I travel with my family to Tuscany. In Siena, there is this little vintage shop called Aloe and Wolf that I love. I always find the most distinctive pieces, such as summer bags. The Dolci Trame boutique is another favourite haunt.’ American fashion designer Rosetta is behind one of Hollywood’s chicest brands MARY KATRANTZOU Holiday Style Guide (p72) ‘Talisman on the New King’s Road is one of the best places in London for design. It has amazing vintage pieces from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, as well as selling its own furniture I recently bought a sofa for my apartment there.’ Greek-born Mary is known for creating colourful, digitally printed clothing JACQUETTA WHEELER Way of Life (p36) ‘My friend Marina Lambton took me to a lovely antiques…

the seaside scene

WHERE TO STAY Little Beach House Barcelona has just opened in a low-slung, green-and-white Fifties stucco building on the golden sands of Garraf – an under-the-radar fishing village that’s a half-hour drive south of the Catalan capital. Just up the coast is the party-loving town of Sitges. Some of the 17 bedrooms here have outdoor baths; all are designed with red and white triangular-tiled floors and macramé tapestries by artist Maryanne Moodie. The restaurant dishes up super-fresh seafood as well as pizza and paella, while up on the terrace a baby Cowshed spa overlooks the Mediterranean. This is the prettiest and dinkiest of all the Soho Houses – and the most low-key. WHERE TO EAT Acclimatise your taste buds with the salt-crust seabream at Can Laury, a restaurant in the Sitges marina just…

the ski update

ALL-NIGHT APRES WHAT Legendary post-ski bars The Farm (Verbier) and La Folie Douce (Val d’Isère, Méribel, Megève, Alpe d’Huez and Val Thorens) are branching out from rosé-fuelled party spots to become hotels for recovery sleepovers. NEED TO KNOW The in-demand Parisians who brought us the Experimental Cocktail Clubs are behind the Experimental Chalet at Verbier’s The Farm, with a theme of Heidi chic meets fin-de-siècle hideaway. Chamonix is home to the first La Folie Douce Hotel, with a spa and yoga studio to balance out the After Mountain Bar on the terrace. ART IN THE ALPS WHAT The off-the-tracks action isn’t limited to glühwein, with serious cultural heavyweights carving out their place in the mountains. NEED TO KNOW Opening this winter, Muzeum Susch outside Davos is a creative space in a 12th-century monastery that will host contemporary exhibitions, a…

the next design hub

THE CREATIVE DUO Dividing their time between Iran and LA, Mehrdad Mohammadzadeh and Paulette Ghahremanian, the couple behind creative agency Studio Shizaru have seen Tehran’s scene change from inside and out: ‘Art and design are no longer exclusive to the elite.’ They’re the designers behind ZEEEN, an all-Iranian concept store, and BOOMI restaurant, pictured, a multicoloured amalgam of traditional and contemporary Persian cuisine and design. It’s not all new, though. ‘We’re seeing many heritage buildings being re-purposed,’ they note. ‘Lolagar Alley now hosts the on-trend Reera Café and Aaran Gallery, and will soon be home to a new hotel we’re working on.’ THE ART AFICIONADO The founder of Pejman Foundation, gallerist Hamidreza Pejman is responsible for some of the most exciting developments in Tehran. Currently in the works is the renovation of Argo…

the music maker

If her mother had nicknamed her after another country, Sudan Archives’s music might have sounded very different. Born Brittney Parks, she picked up the violin after seeing Irish fiddlers at her Ohio school – ‘I loved their bluesy sound, and still put a swallowtail jig in my shows’ – then started exploring traditional Sudanese music on YouTube, made using raw, single-stringed instruments. Now based in LA, home to other young musicians who wriggle free of easy definition, Sudan has dropped two EPs, supported art-pop act Tune-Yards on tour, and made her festival debut this summer at London’s Field Day. Her sound is stripped-back and cosmic, stitching hip-hop couplets – ‘My strings propagate through space and time/hand dimensions and basic rhyme’ – to goosebumpy electronica, hand claps and loping African high-life…
