Thank-you, 2016. Yes, it was a tough year, both personally and as a fan of popular culture and its icons, but it was also one of The GATE’s best years. It’s worth taking a moment now at the end of 2016 to look back on some of the awesome that came our way over the last 365 days.
Spread the cheer this holiday season with special luxury gifts from some of The GATE’s favorite brands, including two special timepieces from Hamilton Watch, the latest Samsung Curved 4K SUHD TV, Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine, and cognac from Courvoisier.
What does it take for a movie production designer like Nathan Crowley–responsible for The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and Interstellar–to design a timepiece for Hamilton Watches? For the Odyssey ODC X-03, which was recently unveiled in Los Angeles at a special event, it just takes the right timing, if you’ll excuse the pun, the right design, a lot of work, and a great working relationship built on a very special project.
Often my discoveries of cool new hotels come as a part of a larger or much different purpose for my actually being there. Sometimes a cool interview with an actor or director brings me to their favourite hotels which then gives me the opportunity to explore and develop an appreciation for that hotel independently and sometimes it is a special occasion that is either specific to the hotel or specifically related to the hotel.
It is incredible when you realize how many people come together to make any film possible, and so often most of the people involved are never recognized after it’s all done. That’s why I love Hamilton Watch’s Behind The Camera Awards, which are happening tonight in Los Angeles.
Some things are essential, and for me and my family, travel is one of those necessities that makes our hearts warm, and our minds happy. Even my daughter, who is only 3-years-old has said how much she likes flying and staying at hotels.
The GATE and Hamilton Watches are giving away a set of prize packs to help you enjoy 20th Century Fox’s new blockbuster, Independence Day: Resurgence, which features four of the iconic watch brand’s gorgeous timepieces.
Get inspired for the holidays with one of our favorite guides: the luxury gift list. Whether you’re shopping for that very special someone, or you just want to day-dream about what you really want this year, we’ve got you covered with “wow” worthy gift suggestions featuring Samsung, Hamilton Watches, Burberry, Grand Marnier, The Macallan, Rado, Bulova, Ted Baker, and Boconi.
I’ve been back in Toronto for a few days now, but it still feels like I’m just getting back into my normal rhythm, but that’s probably because I was out of town for so long.
Welcome to the second day of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. It seems like I’m overdue for posting an update, so here’s the run down of the last 24 hours which have been filled with movies, interviews, and The GATE’s Interview Lounge.
