Notes From The Editor

Week Commencing 2 June 2014

There can be few more scenic spots in the world for a luxury event than Villa d’Este on Lake Como in northern Italy. Each year the stunning hotel plays host to a lavish parade of classic cars, known to luxury connoisseurs as a ‘Concours d'Elegance’.

This year the prestigious event also saw a number of new launches, one of which is the focus of today’s newsletter. If the makers of the car takes you by surprise, then the sheer beauty of it will not.

Elsewhere this week, there’s a new first class suite for the Air France fleet featuring one of the world’s largest on-board beds, a stunning new £3 million boat by British company Claydon Reeves Design and news from BMW who are developing a new model for their flagship 7 Series range.

There’s also a report on football star Christiano Ronaldo being named as a brand ambassador for Swiss watchmakers Tag Heuer, a preview of the 2014 Aspen Food & Wine Festival, and the announcement of Brazilian supermodel Gisele being the new face of iconic perfume Chanel No. 5.

If that’s not enough, there’s a report on an exhibition by French jewellery house Cartier called “Shape Your Time”.

Enjoy our newsletter and have a great week.
