Luke Edward Hall is the most modern equivalent of Cecil Beaton that we have. He’s a veritable aesthete who has worked in various mediums, from wall murals to sketchbooks, from fabrics to entire hotels. His clothing venture, Chateau Orlando, is a gateway into the visual lexicography of Hall’s inspiration. From jacquard knits inspired by English castles to Mediterranean holidays, the collection embodies something lacking in much of the design of today: a singular vision that’s wholly unique to the artist, playing with known themes in new and often contrasting ways that just works.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
