Mr Konjic's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

“My new favourite place is Viajante at the Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green. It offers cuisine from world-famous chef, Nuno Mendes.

I'm also a fan of Bar Pitti in New York. I love their Veal Milanese and Polpo in London for its Flank Steak with Truffle sauce.”

BEST BAR

Electric Room underneath the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York is my favourite bar.

I also love Kosmopol in London for its amazing cocktails especially when made by Freddie or Thomas. In NYC, more so for its decor, I love the bar at The Jane Hotel or The Bowery Hotel.”

VACATION CHOICE

“Hvar, Croatia which is an island. I like the smell of pine-trees and the sea. Reminds of when I was a child.

Also 'Coqui-Coqui Spa', Tulum, Mexico - because it allows me the space to recuperate and it is run by one of my best friends so I get to see my godson too.”

TOP CITY

“London, hands down. I have lived here for 14 years and I never tire of it. There is so much to see and experience by way of music, food, art and fashion and you can see all of this but never bump into anyone if you don't want to.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

“My favourite London hotel would be the Town Hall Hotel. It's different to other hotels in London; it has an elegant little bar that serves amazing cocktails, with extremely friendly staff.

In NYC, it has to be Lafayette House . It does not feel like a hotel, it is actually a townhouse. It only has 15 rooms each with a fireplace and when I go I never want to leave.”

TYPE OF BAG

“My Mulberry satchel that I have had for ten years.”

FAVOURED BRAND

“I don't have particular favourites but I like Lanvin for their sweater and cardigans, Tom Ford - speaks for itself, Burberry Accessories for their coats and jackets and Acne Studios for their jeans and trousers.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

“Jeans because I love them.”

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, mon petite bebe.”

STYLE ICON

“Serge Gainsbourg from yesteryear and George Lamb now.”

note

STYLE TIP

“Wear whatever you feel comfortable in and always spend that little bit extra on shoes.”

note

TAILOR

“Gieves & Hawkes for tailoring and my local dry cleaners for anything else.”

BEST SHIRT BRAND

“Recently I have been buying quite a few shirts from Kooples and Paul Smith .”

note

FAVOURITE SUIT

“Tom Ford”

CUT OF TROUSERS

“Nice, slim trousers as per Lanvin , Gucci and Topman.”

JEANS BRAND

“Slim/skinny from Acne Studios

note

UNDERWEAR CHOICE

“I hate wearing underwear that have any logos on the trim so I am currently wearing briefs from Cos.”

PREFERRED JACKET STYLE

“Leather. At the moment my favourite is from PRPS although I do love my old Levi's denim jacket too.”

SHOE MAKER

“ Yves Saint Laurent shoes. All my brogues and my grey snakeskin boots are from there. They feel as though they are bespoke even though they are not. However, I am waiting for my John Lobb babies, appropriately named babies since they take nine months to make.”

FAVOURITE GROOMING PRODUCT

“'Magic Move' clay. A japanese brand. I sometimes mix it with Bumble & Bumble texture creme.”

DREAM CAR

“E-type GT or Aston Martin DB5.”

WATCH BRAND

“Vintage Croton wind up watch.”

ESSENTIAL GADGET

“My iPhone 4.”

note

BEST BOOK

“'Cooking with Fernet Branca' by James Hamilton- Paterson. It is hilariously funny.”

note

FAVOURITE ALBUM

“There are so many to choose from but a few of them are - 'Off the Wall' Michael Jackson, 'Dark Side of the Moon' Pink Floyd and 'Aftermath' Rolling Stones.”
