Dom Vetro custom eyewear in The FT/How To Spend It

Dom Vetro is a relatively new eyewear brand founded by an ex finance/tech guy. I know, I know, but it really is legit, and you can read all about why here. The net net: the frames are very cool, hand made, and cost less than most designer frames (which, btw, are made in China). You're welcome....

Departures Magazine Scandinavia issue
Various pieces about Copenhagen in Departures

Departures current issue focuses on Scandinavia. I travelled to Copenhagen to search out a few stories, and had several in the magazine. My favorite, by far, was the discovery of Arje Griegst.  Second, a visit to the Georg Jensen smithy and an awesome visit with Frans at Maritime Antiques, which was super cool.   ...

Susan Foslien of San Francisco luxury shop
San Francisco cult shop Susan in How To Spend It

Susan Foslien is the owner of the still-under-the-radar after all these years store Susan, on Sacramento Street in San Francisco. She's got a major cult following despite almost purposely avoiding press and having no website. But, through a friend, I somehow got her to agree to not only be interviewed on the record, but to be photographed for an international publication. The article isn't yet online but I will update this post when it is....

Virginia Lebermann’s Marfa home in Elle Decor

Virginia Lebermann bought a circa late 1800s Adobe ruin and turned it into her family's home. The native Texan, who co-founded Ballroom Marfa, and owns the Thunderbird Hotel as well as the Capri restaurant and event space, painstakingly researched indigenous methods to use in the construction process, including fermenting cactus to mix with local clay to create a proper adobe paste. Insane! But the results, published in the October issue of Elle Decor, are very cool....

Bare Vestland in the FT/How to Spend It

Barre Vestland is a sub-terranean restaurant in Bergen, Norway, that I came upon while on a cruise. You read that correctly. We had about 8 hours in Bergen, and besides the sconce I bought there, eating here was the best thing that happened. Read all about it here....
