The National Hotel, Miami - 4 Stars

Lumix Brown Leather Camera Case

'The retro-design means I can carry it around and most people will think I have an old film-camera slung over my shoulder. Even if it were slow to get to the camera and take a shot, it would still be quicker than digging in a bigger bag. The case is hand-stitched and made to snugly fit the Lumix GF-1 and the 20mm pancake lens. Any other lens won’t fit, although you can just use the bottom half-case.'

Persol Sunglasses PO3065S

Mar Ipanema Hotel, Rio de Janeiro, 4 Stars

'This stylish boutique hotel has a primo locale, just five minutes from Ipanema Beach and a few blocks from the Rodrigo Freitas Lagoon.

But the undeniably talented Derek Welsh has just produced not one, but two beautiful reimaginings of one of my favourite childhood pastimes, in collaboration with design studio Graphical House."

Schlosshotel Kronberg, Frankfurt - 5 Stars

'It may be a little way out of town, but the luxurious Schlosshotel Kronberg more than justifies the minor inconvenience. A 19th century country castle-cum-hotel, it boasts exquisite furnishings, an impressive collection of antiques and paintings and, naturally, an exclusive 18-hole golf course.'

Warby Parker Winston Sunglasses

"A classic pair of tortoiseshell glasses that looks good on every face shape out there."

Diesel Blood Red Diamond Trainers

"Walk in these with dark, tapered denim. Lace up trainers, available in multiple colors."

Gianvito Rossi Plexiglass Panel Pump

"Gianvito Rossi is my favourite shoe brand. The shoes are so sensual and feminine, but always elegant and easy to wear. I wore these shoes to my mum’s wedding a couple of months ago, so they mean a lot. But they’re also really practical: the heel is just the right height for work, while still enhancing your silhouette, and the transparency makes your feet look slimmer! I can dress them down with a pair of jeans or use them to make a statement with an all-black outfit. The shoes do come in different colourways, but I think the leopard skin gives them that extra touch, a sense of originality."

"Don’t be fooled by the title: this in-depth primer by graphic design icon Chip Kidd is written for the young adult set, but curious minds of any age can learn from his direct and witty explanations of design fundamentals like typography, color, form, content, and concept."

Alvaro Siza: Complete Works 1952-2013

"I don't know why, in these end times for communications made with dead trees and days of general impoverishment, but the market for sumptuous, fat, beautifully illustrated books of architecture and design seems as strong as ever. This year saw a Taschen tome on the great Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, by Philip Jodidio, which is over-bright for its subject but still welcome."

Lub D Siam Square, Bangkok - 2 Stars

'The second branch of Lub D, (the first is in Silom, Bangkok's business district) proves the success of the first was no fluke, taking the same hip-hostel blueprint – raw concrete, cheeky stencil art, youthful vibe – and transplanting it to an arguably much better location.'

VW T1 Transporter Plastic Model Kit

"For those with lots of time and patience on their hands, what better than a model kit? Why, a Jägermeister-branded VW Panel Van model kit, of course!"

Pension Schoenbrunn, Vienna - 3 Stars

'Next to the imperial summer palace and a five-minute walk from an underground station, this clean budget hotel has an ideal location. Rooms are spacious and there are a few that overlook a courtyard that offer quiet from the busy street outside.'

Valentino Rockstud Va Va Voom Studded Bag

A shot of colour can really elevate an outfit, and Valentino’s royal-blue Rockstud Va Va Voom bag is a stellar way to introduce it. Iconic stud detailing decorates the front, and the silver-tone chain strap can be worn long or doubled up for a shorter length.

Alternative Concert Posters by Mike Klay
