As Dubai waits with bated breath to hear the announcement
of the venue chosen for Expo 2020, it is also abuzz with
numerous luxury events.
We were honoured to be one of the few publications from around
the world to be invited to the Queen’s Coronation Festival at the
Buckingham Palace, courtesy of Bentley Motors. We also visit the
romantic city of Venice on an invitation from Maserati to witness the
grand Venice Film Festival.
On the jewellery front, we have an interesting interview with
Katharina Flohr about the growth and revival of Fabergé jewellery. We
also have a look at one of the most unique complex timepieces from the
house of Roger Dubuis.
The multi-faceted business tycoon, Nirmal Sethia, who speaks about
the history of tea and features of his company, Newby Teas, is another
interesting personality we cover in this issue.
At an impressive launch party at their showroom on Sheikh Zayed
Road, Khalil Al Sayed Al Hashami and Medy Nahravani, the Founders
of Bold Bespoke Interior Design, share their thoughts on how their
creations now grace the interiors of Dubai’s finest restaurants, office
spaces and villas.
Equally impressive are the photorealistic paintings by the renowned
Spanish realist, Gabriel Picart – we enter his world of art.
On the travel and leisure side, we get to experience some of the
finest resorts and hotels in Thailand, owned by the Four Seasons Group.
The Starwood Group further strengthen their presence among the
heritage hotels in Europe with the reopening of the Prince de Galles
hotel in Paris. We also explore ‘The Club by Mövenpick’ service at the
Mövenpick Hotel & Spa Bangalore.
