Prosper Assouline

In 1993, Prosper Assouline and his wife Martine decided on a whim to publish a book about Provençal restaurant La Colombe d’Or. Today, Assouline, the company the couple run together, is France’s largest independent publisher, creating beautifully crafted tomes on fashion, art and collectibles. “This summer,” says Prosper, who describes the journeys that have shaped his life in this issue of Beyond, “my dream would be to spend a week in a boat with my Istanbul partners, Irem and Sina, sailing from Bodrum to Symi in Greece.”


Jonathan Adler

Having started out as a potter, Jonathan Adler now oversees a complete lifestyle brand, with nearly 30 eponymous stores worldwide selling everything from beds to lighting. For Beyond, the designer and author salutes his favorite men’s outfitter in his hometown, New York. This summer, he’s planning a trip to Capri with his husband Simon Doonan, creative ambassador-at-large of Barneys. “I’m not a religious person,” Jonathan says, “but I’m pretty sure heaven is just like Capri.”


Fiona Caulfield

The Australian-born author moved to India in 2004 and has since published five handcrafted Love Travel Guides to Indian cities, including Mumbai, about which she writes in Beyond. Her dream holiday destination is her own 1920s fisherman’s cottage in Hardys Bay, near Sydney. “It’s directly on the water so you almost feel like you’re on a boat,” she says. “I’m looking forward to long walks on the beach, where I’m often the only person – in stark contrast to India, which is home to over a billion people.”


Dominick Farinacci

After graduating from the Juilliard School in 2005, trumpeter Dominick Farinacci was named the very first Global Ambassador to Jazz at Lincoln Center. Based for two years in Doha – in this issue of Beyond he recommends the city’s best sheesha restaurant – his achievements resulted in an invitation from TED to speak in Washington, D.C. His dream destination this summer? “Vienna, Austria – walking the same streets that Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms walked along between composing their music.”


Maya Beus

Fashion and lifestyle illustrator Maya Beus featured as one of the world’s up-and-coming talents in Taschen’s Illustration Now! Fashion. In this issue of Beyond, we reveal highlights from her recent project, “Butler Stories”, which saw her capturing moments from the working life of three St. Regis hotels. A resident of Split in Croatia, Maya dreams of learning to surf in Hawaii: “Just me, the ocean, a sandy beach… and probably wiping out hundreds of times before I finally catch a wave.”


William Drew

William has been a writer and editor for over 20 years, covering fashion, fitness, finance and food. A former editor of British style magazine Arena, he is now group editor of globally renowned organization, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. In this issue of Beyond, he identifies the trend for gastronomic pilgrimages. “This summer,” he says, “I’d like to take my family on a Californian road trip, sampling wine in the Napa valley, eating extensively around San Francisco and making like we’re in a movie in Las Vegas.”
