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.
