I love living on the French Riviera. Everything from the weather to the stunning landscape makes it a dream to call this place home.
After years of cruising around the region, I’ve found a secret spot where I can sit back and take in the scenery. It’s so calm around here, making it perfect for meditation and relaxing while organizing future plans.
Today I’m driving a classic Morgan and I’m outfitted in a full Brooks Brothers Monaco ensemble: light trousers, fitted jacket and pocket squares to add a subtle, elegant touch.
On my wrist, my timepiece matches my ride perfectly. The G.P.M.H. edition by Chopard (Grand Prix de Monaco Historique) is all about paying homage to these classic cars, with an automatic Chronograph made of titanium and rose gold and a stainless steel case stamped with the Monaco Automobile Club logo. The Chrono offers the perfect balance of elegance and sport, great for a day behind the wheel of a classic car like this one.
I jet off to Monaco to pick up a good friend of mine, Victoria Bonya, a well-known Russian TV host who I met a little while ago on a photoshoot in Monaco. We catch up in the principality from time to time, and it’s always a real pleasure to shoot with her when we have the chance.
While she’s off shopping in Monaco, I switch gears for a walk, changing into a new Brooks Brothers outfit. I throw a light red jacket over a pink shirt paired with white trousers and braces. On my feet, I’m sporting a pair of classic white sneakers that are on the trendier side and really help top off the look.
You hear me talk about my favorite accessories, but now I’ll introduce you to a gentleman’s real best friend: Nelson. This tall white shepherd is the perfect companion for a stroll through the principality and is so charming, people want to stop and take photos of him.
Now that Victoria is back, the three of us are off for lunch at the new Casino Café de Paris for an afternoon light bite in the sun.
