This Summer has been surprisingly busy with work and complicated construction for the refurbishment of client apartments. Sadly this has not allowed me much time for a proper summer holiday, and as such, I’ve had to satisfy myself vicariously through my friends and their various accounts of divine destinations.
Of course we here at WIJW HAVE had some rather fabulous getaways — witness the above montage! Thankfully come September Scott McBee and I are planning a personal extension of the summer season by taking a mini holiday — perhaps a long weekend in Miami and then on to Portugal in October! We will of course keep you posted
As our beautiful days of sunning on pink beaches and loafing around Bermuda drew to a close, Raj Tolaram hosted the most fabulous farewell dinner party for us. Needless to say, I’m eternally grateful to him for his gorgeous hospitality. Tolaram is on a mission to restore Bermuda to its glory days, while bringing his own brand of elegance, luxury and sophistication to the mix. I adore his vision and look forward to participating in this grand endeavor. Of course we’ll be sharing it all here as things unfold!
Dressed for our farewell dinner (top), Tolaram’s wonderful pink Victorian home provided an ultra lux chic base of operations for our WIJW Bermuda adventure. I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci white linen jacket and pale khaki pants, Tom Ford pink mini plaid cotton shirt with French cuffs, ivory silk tie and ivory suede loafers, Gucci python belt with silver buckle, Charvet Paris pink silk pocket square, cuff links are shell with coral beads, vintage Rolex watch and my fragrance is Creed Original Cologne.
We couldn’t possibly describe our ideal Bermuda holiday better than this wonderful old travel brochure. The whole thing has us just soaked in nostalgia! Speaking of which, we also note the “Queen of Bermuda” ocean liner photographed in the background is the self-same vessel so beautifully painted by our very own Scott Mcbee!
