Look! A man!The editorial team is welcoming in some new blood with the arrival of Antoine, or Maxime as we like to call him (there was already an Antoine on the team, so we had to find him another name!). He’s our very own James Bond: he’s well dressed, has a codename, and a winning smile (however, he’s more partial to a mug of green tea than a Vodka Martini).
