Kristina Lewis

Bespoke - - THE CONTRIBUTORS -

Be­fore she got mar­ried, Kristina Walther used to be a well­known Ger­man pho­to­graphic model, now she’s a dab hand be­hind the lens, com­bin­ing art and pho­tog­ra­phy in a mixed­me­dia ap­proach she calls “the meet­ing of co­in­ci­dence and mo­ti­va­tion”.her unique per­spec­tive and post-process tech­niques are on full dis­play in this month’s ethe­real fash­ion story. The imag­i­na­tively styled ready-to-wear will in­spire your spring wardrobe and give you plenty to day­dream about. So come along and catch a rainbow on p. 58. Based in Mi­ami, Michael spends the ma­jor­ity of his time around yachts, su­pery­achts and megay­achts work­ing as a correspondent for Yacht­ing mag­a­zine as well as reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to Su­pery­acht Busi­ness, Robb Re­port, Worth and of course Be­spoke. For our Dream is­sue, Michael takes us in­side one of the largest sail­ing yachts in the world, Ngoni. With its re­flec­tive, slen­der alu­minium hull, this 58-me­tre won­der is re­mark­ably sleek but it’s what’s on­board that will have you wish­ing you could move in. See more on p. 122. She may be a sea­soned writer and cross-plat­form con­tent con­sul­tant but Sudeshna prefers to go by the ti­tle of ex­pe­ri­ence col­lec­tor due a deep-rooted love of ex­plor­ing new cul­tures and cuisines. For this is­sue, we asked her to round up all you need to know about Art Dubai, the Mid­dle East’s big­gest in­ter­na­tional con­tem­po­rary art fair. From the best new artists to emerge on the scene, to the big­gest prizes and the many new far-flung coun­tries who took part this year, she cov­ered it all via a brief re­view in our Es­cape sec­tion. Though War­ren spent the best part of eigh­teen years liv­ing and work­ing in Beirut, even giv­ing us a few valu­able years as Edi­tor at Be­spoke, he has fi­nally called time and moved to Barcelona. Don’t fret though, he is go­ing to con­tinue to op­er­ate as our Edi­tor-at­Large and take those oh-so hor­ri­ble as­sign­ments, such as this month’s trip to the most ex­clu­sive is­land in the Madlives. By his own wide-eyed ac­count, Coco Privé is an is­land you would prob­a­bly dream of be­ing stranded on. Read his full re­view on p. 90.
