Notes From The Editor

Week Commencing 21 September 2015

The largest car show in Europe is currently taking place in Frankfurt, Germany and there is no shortage of eye-catching luxury automobiles on display.

From new models due to go straight to the production line to futuristic concepts, the show is awash with the very latest in car design and innovation. You can read about some of the highlights in today’s newsletter.

Among the new models being showcased in Frankfurt is the Jaguar F-Pace, which also features in our newsletter. Developed using Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the F-Pace is billed as combining purity of line, surface and proportion with F-Type-inspired features such as the powerful rear haunches, fender vents and distinctive tail light graphics.

Elsewhere this week, there’s news from Tiffany & Co who have created a new watch collection rooted in history, an interview with the general manager of the China Rendez-Vous luxury lifestyle event in Hainan, and the first Paris store opening for British fashion brand Alexander McQueen.

In further watch news, Ulysse Nardin have launched an eye-catching timepiece that pays tribute to the romance of Venice, while fellow Swiss brand Zenith have unveiled their own new creation featuring the remains of an asteroid discovered in northern Scandinavia in 1906.

That's it for this week. We're off to Monaco on Tuesday in preparation for hosting the Official Breaking News Centre at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show,where we'll be conducting interviews with key figures from the world of luxury. Until then, have a great week.
