My Favorite Things

In a short time, the young British developer Gabriel Chipperfield—son of famed architect David Chipperfield—has established himself as one of London’s ones to watch, thanks to a roster of international projects, which include the renovation of Chiltern Street’s treasured newsstand Shreeji, as well as the design and construction of artist Tracey Emin’s Margate painting-and-sculpting studios and his first hotel venture, the nearby, art-filled Fort Road Hotel. Here, Chipperfield, ever the aesthete, lets AIR MAIL in on his top selections of the moment



Natural European Toothpaste

“This is our all-time favorite toothpaste. We have never been able to find it in a shop, so I really depend on Amazon for it.”

Manhattan Toy


Celestial Star Explorer

“We have a 14-month-old, and Maisonette is a great one-stop shop for anything we might need for him. We love their selection of wooden toys, like this activity center.”



Chapter MIPS Helmet

“I have gotten really into cycling since Covid; these helmets are very slick.”



Men’s Racquet Sr Suede Sneaker

“If I can get away with it, I prefer to wear smart trainers over a more stuffy formal option, so navy blue CQPs are my go-to!”



The Scarlet Cardigan

“My wife loves Khaite’s sweaters and practically lives in them once the weather gets fresh again.”

C.O. Bigelow


Lemon Hand Wash

“It’s always nice to have a range of soaps for your powder room.”



Check-In M Suitcase

“Our entire family travels with Rimowa, which is always reliable. My wife can overpack hers, and it still manages to last.”

William Finnegan


Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life

“I am an aspiring surfer; I don’t know how to surf, but I love the sea and the origins of surfing culture. I have been recommended this book too many times to ignore reading it now.”
