The Selectors The best, by the best. Our panel of global experts choose the finest things across the worlds of arts, design, food and fashion Edited by Bill Dunn Illustrated portraits Paul Ryding CLOTHING Phoebe Gormley Founder and tailor-in-chief of Gormley and Gamble, Savile Row’s first tailor for women by women gormleyandgamble.com Selects: Penelope Chilvers bespoke velvet slippers “I love that they’re unique, fun and quirky – while still being a twist on a classic. No one else has them and they just feel very ‘me’. I keep them in our store in Savile Row and wear them most days when I can’t be bothered with heels. They look epic with a suit.” penelopechilvers.com 10 / Jaguar Magazine
DESIGN Bill Amberg Leather designer whose work in interiors transformed the material’s use, and whose Rocket bag is in the permanent collections of the V&A London and MoMA New York billamberg.com Selects: Sebastian Cox Bayleaf Desk “Sebastian is such a clever man and he’s got such a good touch. All his work is really nice – there’s not a single piece that’s not exquisite. He has such a light touch on everything, including sustainability. He has a wood in Kent on his father’s farm where he cuts and prepares wood for his designs. He champions British wood through design, making and milling. I’ve chosen this Bayleaf desk in walnut. There’s something about a desk – it’s such an intimate piece of furniture, a very personal thing. A good desk helps you work and you have to connect with it. Like all good design, it doesn’t shout at you but, when you get up close to it, the details are really nice. The way the woven collar interacts with the frame, the way the drawers slide… I love it.” sebastiancox.co.uk Jaguar Magazine / 11
