Luxury Trends To Watch Out For At MYS 2017

By Paul Joseph

It may be best known for its parade of superyachts, but the Monaco Yacht Show also has a well-earned reputation for showcasing all the finer things in life.

Here, we take a look at some of the key trends in the world of luxury set to be displayed at this year’s show, including luxury cars, stunning interior design and beautiful one-off watches. 

Return of the Car Deck

Last year’s Car Deck will also be returning for 2017, featuring some of the finest motor vehicles in the world. Stand out models from 2016 included Lamborghini’s Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, the Rolls-Royce Dawn and Tesla’s Model S P90D, and these are expected to be more than matched.

The renowned Italian car manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini returns to showcase two of its current model lines: the V12 Aventador S and V10 Huracán. Meanwhile Hoffmann & Novague, a new exhibitor, will unveil its stunning model known as HN R200, a limited-edition production which features an aluminium body. 

Another new Car Deck participant, the British company Elemental Motor, will unveil its RP1 sportscar model based on a Formula One style. The Elemental RP1 is designed and built by a group of British Formula 1 engineers and represents the pinnacle of road going motor sport technology and performance.

All of these cars, and more, will be available for enthralling test drives through the heart of Monte Carlo.

Interior Beauty

For the first time, interior design brand Paola Lenti will display in its own space at the Monaco Yacht Show the full range of colours and materials available for its collections. It will conceive the interior design of the Upper Deck Lounge in cooperation with Sabrina Monte-Carlo, the official distributor of the brand in the Principality.

The project includes several indoor products and novelties based on combinations and materials that are selected through an ongoing process of synthesis, respectful of both aesthetics and ergonomics, which is at the core of the research activity of Paola Lenti.

Watches Galore

The Only Watch auction moved to Geneva a few years ago, but every watch to go under the hammer will be doing the rounds during the Monaco Yacht Show.

This will give visitors to the show the chance to peruse the one-of-a-kind creations ahead of the eventual auction on 11 November and weigh up whether they wish to bid for any of them. Once again, all proceeds will go towards a worthy cause, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a debilitating muscle wasting disease that affects children.

The 27th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show takes place from 27 – 30 September.
