Mr Huebl's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

“My favorite sushi place is called Ono, in Hamburg, Germany. Their special rolls are fantastic, as is the tuna avocado salad. In New York, my all-time favourite restaurant is Le Bilboquet, a classic French spot on the Upper East Side. Its menu features all the best bistro favourites – mine is their version of cajun chicken.”

BEST BAR

“The bar at Electric House, London is cozy, cool, and serves great drinks. I always run into nice people there, and in the summer, they open the roof. In Berlin, my favourite nightspot is Trust. It combines everything you want when going out; it's sexy and raunchy, and it captures the cool, nonchalant vibe of Berlin with its fantastic music.”

VACATION CHOICE

“St. Bart's. With its windy roads, beautiful beaches, green hills and tropical feel, the sunsets are not the only reason why I love this island.”

TOP CITY

“New York City, for everything it offers 24/7, and Berlin, which is like a mini NYC. I count these two cities as my home.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris. I've tried a lot of Parisian hotels during my travels, but this one finally meets all my needs. I also have to name Babington House in Somerset. I love the grounds, the rooms and the British feel.”

TYPE OF BAG

“A Mulberry Postman's Lock bag in walnut.”

note

FAVOURED BRAND

“Brunello Cucinelli. It reflects my personal style perfectly and the fabrics are fantastic.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

“My Closed chino pants, which I wear almost every day; desert ankle boots from Grenson , and any button-down shirt (tailored or off the peg). They can be relaxed or chic, depending on my mood and the occasion.”

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“My amazing woman: Olivia Palermo”

STYLE ICON

“I grew up with the style of the cool Frenchmen Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon. They just know how to do it. I also admire the style of my friends Giancarlo Giammetti and Valentino Garavani, who are always impeccably dressed.”

note

STYLE TIP

“Dress for your body type and always feel comfortable in your clothes. A little tailoring can do wonders.”

TAILOR

“My tailor is Marc Anthony in Hamburg. My friend Ferdinand von Hammerstein introduced me, and ever since, I have bought my suits from him. He can translate my design ideas into cool modern suits with a personal touch. The lovely Angela from G&G Cleaners on Grand Street in Soho, NY does my dry-cleaning and alterations.”

BEST SHIRT BRAND

“Most of my shirts are either by Hackett or Brunello Cucinelli, but a tailored shirt is pretty cool too.”

FAVOURITE SUIT

Marc Anthony, in Hamburg, Germany”

CUT OF TROUSERS

“Closed do the best chinos, hands down. Perfect fit, material and a wide range of colours.”

note

JEANS BRAND

“My favourite jeans are a pair of old skinny Prada jeans. They are a washed-out dark grey colour, rather than black, and they have been altered many times over the past 10 years.”

UNDERWEAR CHOICE

“I have found a bespoke boxer shorts company, which I order from now. Otherwise, I buy Zegna or Sunspel .”

PREFERRED JACKET STYLE

“Two favourites: a dark brown bomber leather jacket from Closed and a double- layered blazer from Corneliani – which has a military feel because of the buttons that run up all the way to the lapel.”

SHOE MAKER

“I mostly wear loafers from my capsule collection for the Italian shoe company Scarosso. I also like Crockett & Jones.”

FAVOURITE GROOMING PRODUCT

“I only use Kiehl's on my skin. For my hair, I use Shu Uemura paste.”

DREAM CAR

“A Mercedes-Benz 300SL from 1954 in black and a Porsche 356 Speedster in hunting green.”

WATCH BRAND

“A Rolex.”

BEST BOOK

“My brother's philosophy book, Folge dem weissen Kaninchen. It gives you intelligent and clear answers to the big questions in life, and it's written in a smart, witty and amusing way.”

note

FAVOURITE ALBUM

“I grew up with Nas The Message, The Notorious B.I.G. debut album, Ready to Die, and The Joshua Tree by U2. Now, I like Empire of the Sun's Walking on a Dream album. It always puts me in a great mood.”
