Latest Lifestyle News: Scrubs Up Well

Rounding off three consecutive weeks when we have profiled some of the British Virgin Islands’ most desirable private islands resorts, this time around we turn our attention to Scrub Island.

Offering an irresistible mix of world-class accommodations, spa services, dining, full-service marina and outdoor adventure, the island itself boasts a fascinating history dating back almost 500 years, but today is home to one of the region’s most luxurious destinations – and one that has become a magnet for superyacht visitors. You can find out more in today’s newsletter.

Also this week, we report on the EBACE aviation conference which saw the launch of a futuristic private jet cabin concept by Airbus. Designed in collaboration with Italian hypercarmaker makers Pagani, the luxurious new cabin design features the same level of detailing and luxury that can be found in a Pagani automobile.

In further luxury news, there’s features on recently announced plans to build a duo of man-made islands in Dubai for the princely sum of $1.7 billion, a new luxury retail concept by Matchesfashion.com set to be built in the well-heeled London district of Mayfair, and a new timepiece by Romain Jerome that harks back to many of our childhoods.

We also bring you news from Rolls-Royce whose Dawn Mayfair Edition recently arrived in a London showroom, and Ralph Lauren who have augmented their highly regarded RL67 Safari Chronometer collection with an eye-catching new timepiece.

Finally, there’s a review of a recent sale in New York that saw a painting by the legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat become the most expensive American artwork ever sold at auction.

Until next time, enjoy our newsletter and have a wonderful week.
