As the holy month of Ramadan sets in, we ponder over
what this month signifies. We also explore the Arab
traditions of carpet-weaving and dhow-making.
On the luxury front, we look at one of the legendary Parisian
jewellery houses, Boucheron, and their dynamic Qatari retail partner,
Fifty One East.
Meanwhile, Qatar Airways had the distinction of taking home three
honours at the annual Skytrax 2013 World Airline Awards, held during
the recent Paris Air Show at Le Bourget.
The second Doha Turkish Film Festival, which showcased the best
in Turkish films, was the perfect treat for film connoisseurs at the
Villaggio Mall.
The focus is also on the luxurious Rolls-Royce Wraith, which was
launched in grand style at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha. While on
automobiles, we explore the cities of Strasbourg and London, driving
the latest Bentley Mulsanne, and go behind the scenes at the Lalique
crystal glass factory. In addition, we are among the select media invited
for the launch of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class at Hamburg, along with an
exciting tour of the Airbus factory.
On the culinary front, we get to taste the finest French haute
cuisine, served at Idam, Alain Ducasse’s first restaurant in the Middle
East region. Idam is conveniently located within the iconic Museum
of Islamic Art in Doha. Meanwhile, the Astor Grill at the St.Regis Doha
serves some of the finest beef and seafood dishes in the city.
In the artistic world, we explore the beautiful creations of artist
Jeremy Lipking as well as the origins and tales surrounding peridot,
one of the precious green gemstones favoured by jewellers.
As always, we hope you enjoy reading this issue and wish you a
great summer holiday as well!
