The Rake - April_2016

RAKE COMMENDS setting in

RAKE COMMENDS setting in which to become familiar with a region that distributes 80 per cent of Europe’s hash. They have been cultivating it there for more than a millennium, so they know what they’re doing. The expanse of fields full of cannabis plants is something to behold, and it will be a different experience to your customary jaunts around the Côte d’Azur. To recuperate, head south to end your trip in Marrakech. A few days on the road and a head full of mood-altering substances will need cleansing in some way. Check into La Sultana in Marrakech, overlooking the medina (a UNESCO world heritage site), book a traditional spa treatment, and pour yourself some strong mint tea to clear your head. Take a wander around Jemaa El-Fnaa square, and you’ll see why Talitha Getty, the Rolling Stones, Malcolm Forbes and Barbara Hutton became so enamoured of the place. TC Chefchaouen at dusk.

RAKE COMMENDS Berluti Jour-Of GM travel bag A jaunt would not be complete without a sumptuous travel bag, such as this from the kings of patina, Berluti. Ideal for those who boast the enviable ability to pack light, this bag is large enough for a week away yet small enough to comply with most airlines’ cabin restrictions. It is also a work of art, made from Berluti’s signature Venezia leather, which was developed by Olga Berluti to hold a remarkably deep patina that gets better with age. CT Dunhill suede blouson There’s something so timelessly cool about a soft, supple suede blouson. Dunhill’s latest offering is particularly compelling, for it is lightweight, elegantly proportioned and practical. Taken from a vintage British design, the rich tobacco lambskin suede is of the finest quality and perfect for balmy temperatures. AC A&S cashmere scarf Every intrepid explorer requires a Lawrence of Arabia-esque shawl, something that offers protection from the baking sun and sweeping desert sands. This exquisite cashmere scarf, from Anderson & Sheppard’s Haberdashery, is just the thing. Voluminous yet featherweight, it’s hand-dyed and handwoven for unsurpassable softness. AC Armani crêpe trousers As evinced by this issue’s Renaissance feature, when it comes to trousers, wide legs, high rises and deep pleats are back with a vengeance. This pair, from Armani, are a case in point: cut in a voluptuous, drapey, stretch-wool blend, they distill an extraordinary sense of nonchalance and composure — perfect for swanning around the medina of a weekend. AC Belstaf Levison coated linen safari jacket There is perhaps no more iconic a travel garment than the safari jacket, especially when it is the result of an exclusive collaboration between Belstaff and renowned photographer and explorer Levison Wood. Functional and utilitarian with its wealth of pockets, it’s cut from high-tech resin-coated linen, well suited to whatever the elements may choose to throw at it. AC Dolce & Gabbana bufalo leather espadrilles The intricate handwoven leather of these espadrilles transcends the style’s traditionally laid-back status, giving them a superior luxurious disposition that elevates casual summer attire. The beauty of these shoes lies in their versatility: they’ll take you from poolside relaxation to an intimate meal with effortless aplomb. CT 34
