Latest Lifestyle News: Haute Couture Comes to Porto Montenegro

For a number of years now Porto Montenegro has been considered one of Europe’s most exclusive superyacht destinations and the marina village and yacht hub has increasingly been playing host to high profile events in recent times.

Last year saw the inaugural edition of the International Fashion Festival come to the Adriatic hot spot and it was such a success that it is returning once again later this month for a second outing.

The three-day show will once again take place at the Synchro event space and will see some of the world’s most prestigious designers and industry-leading fashion brands descend on Porto Montenegro. You can read a full preview of the event in the lead story of today’s newsletter.

Elsewhere this week, we bring you exceedingly high-end property news from the South of France, with the French Riviera’s most expensive home recently hitting the market. The price? A cool $69 million.

There’s also news from the luxury car world, after Bentley took the wraps off its eagerly awaited Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition, while supercar makers Pagani marked its 20th anniversary at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed which took place last week. Finally from the auto world, we report on the Italian town of Maranello’s plans to host its first ever event dedicated exclusively to Ferrari.

In other news, luxury cruise company Seabourn have designed what is being billed as the “Rolls-Royce of Submarines”, there’s a new leather goods capsule collection from Montblanc, and Chivas Brothers have unveiled an exclusive new whisky collection.

That’s all for this week. Check in with us again throughout the next seven days for regular updates from the world of luxury before our next round-up hits your inbox again on Monday. Until then, take care and have a wonderful week.
