I’ve been collecting the Italian designer’s glass pieces for years and track them down on 1stdibs—an antique furniture site—and eBay when I can. I keep a lot in my apartment and office. They are ideal as gifts for those who are difficult to find things for.

Sushi Park 

Japanese food is so good in Los Angeles and this restaurant on Sunset Boulevard is my all-time favourite. I try to go as many times as possible when I’m in town.

This is a cryotherapy clinic in London available at Harvey Nichols and the Harrods Wellness Clinic. I try to find clinics in different cities around the world. The hyper-cooling, anti-ageing treatment gets rid of any fatigue and jetlag I experience.

He’s my favourite artist. I’d love to visit Roden Crater (left), the dormant volcanic cone in Arizona that he’s turning into a monumental artwork when it’s finished. At the top of my wishlist would be a piece of his work.

I love all the Aman hotels. Each one is designed with incredible attention to detail. I haven’t visited Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah, yet but it’s on the top of my list to visit this year.
