WELCOME TO HIGHLIGHTS <strong>2020</strong><br />

With this new edition of <strong>Highlights</strong>, our company’s flagship publication, we reach you in unusual and<br />

tumultuous times. Having survived fears of an oncoming recession in 2019, we entered the new year<br />

on a positive note, with surprisingly good short-term economic forecasts and a significant rise in<br />

enquiries for properties on the Costa del Sol. Now we are faced with another global challenge – the second<br />

in little more than a decade – and although no-one knows exactly what the economic impact will be, it will<br />

be overcome in the end, as humans are nothing if not adaptable and resourceful.<br />

The demand for the uniquely<br />

privileged setting and lifestyle that<br />

<strong>Marbella</strong> and its surroundings offer<br />

remains as strong as ever, and in<br />

this issue we showcase some of its<br />

best facets, including some of the<br />

region’s finest homes and examples<br />

of style. We also share the results<br />

of the <strong>2020</strong> Knight Frank Wealth<br />

Report, an authoritative information<br />

source built upon exhaustive industry<br />

polls and interviews with leading<br />

figures and HNW decision-makers,<br />

which provide an invaluable gauge<br />

of sentiment and capital/investment<br />

flows.<br />

In line with this, we look at new trends,<br />

consumer/investor preferences and<br />

what the sector is doing to respond to<br />

these. Increasingly important concerns are wellness and sustainability, and in this issue we have expanded<br />

the editorial content to focus on how we are adapting and incorporating these into our everyday lives and<br />

decisions regarding future investments.<br />

We have carefully curated a selection of articles featuring new eco-friendly lifestyles, how the fashion<br />

industry is responding to a growing demand for sustainable collections, the new hybrid Porsche Taycan<br />

and a look into some of Spain’s most iconic architects.<br />

Naturally, we also focus on lifestyle, for this is what helps to define our beautiful part of the world. Indeed,<br />

when people buy a home in <strong>Marbella</strong>, they acquire a lifestyle as much as a property.<br />

We hope you enjoy reading as much as we have enjoyed preparing this year’s issue for you.<br />

EVENTS<br />

A handpicked selection of some of the most evocative<br />

international events this season. By Michel Cruz<br />

The Female Divine –<br />

Christian Dior<br />

Posed with the question ‘What if women ruled the world?’, Judy<br />

Chicago and Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior created the evocative<br />

backdrop for the Paris runway presentation of the Christian<br />

Dior Spring couture <strong>2020</strong> collection. This visual representation<br />

is a celebration not just of the female form, as raised to an art<br />

by Dior itself, but also of the indomitable spirit and resilience<br />

of women all over the world, representing as they do the earth and<br />

heart of society.<br />

MoMa, New York, expands<br />

An international icon of art, design and avant<br />

garde thinking, the Museum Of Modern Art is<br />

also a New York icon that pushes boundaries<br />

and brings a modern interpretation of art to the<br />

many who visit it every year. The new extension<br />

is not just a physical expansion and upgrading of<br />

facilities, but goes further to bring art to life –<br />

literally – through the creation of live works galleries<br />

where it is possible to see the creative process in<br />

action and interact with the artists themselves<br />

in a way that has not been seen yet.<br />

Louis Vuitton<br />

Maison opening<br />

Seoul<br />

The opening of a new Louis Vuitton Maison<br />

is more than simply the inauguration of<br />

a new luxury store – it is an architectural<br />

and design occasion in its own right. The<br />

new maison opened in the South Korean<br />

capital features the design of world-famous<br />

architect, Frank Gehry, also responsible<br />

for such icons as the Guggenheim Museum<br />

in Bilbao. The sculpted glass structure,<br />

which appears like cooling ice cubes<br />

within the urban landscape, highlights the<br />

beautifully hand-worked design and colour<br />

tones of this iconic brand, and in so doing<br />

creates a work of art worthy of the name<br />

Louis Vuitton.<br />

Forbes Influencer<br />

Marketing Report<br />

A new form of celebrity-based marketing,<br />

influencers have become celebrities and<br />

marketeers in their own right, as they ‘guide’<br />

followers and consumers to the brands they<br />

support, and perhaps even more importantly<br />

teach established brands about the rapidlychanging<br />

trends among consumers. The focus<br />

and spend on this organic and often noncorporate<br />

type of marketing continued to<br />

grow in 2019, and appears not to have reached<br />

its zenith yet, according to a report published<br />

by Forbes <strong>Magazine</strong>.<br />

Les Rencontres d’Arles<br />

The theme of this photographic art exhibition in the<br />

southern French city of Arles is art of the people,<br />

highlighting several decades of visuals that capture the<br />

times as no other medium could. Very up to date and<br />

stirring are the images that centre upon the movement of<br />

the ‘yellow vests’ – the everyday people taking to the streets<br />

to fight for a way of life. June 29 – September 20<br />

Fabio Ponzio, Romania, 1997.<br />

Paris Photo<br />

Paris Photo at the Grand Palais<br />

offers a blend of state-of-the-art<br />

photographic presentation in what<br />

is visual art at its best. Inspiring,<br />

emotive images that stir the soul<br />

and engage the mind by some of the<br />

leading photographers in the world<br />

– both established and raw, new<br />

talent – in a setting that adds to the<br />

sensory impact of one of the leading<br />

exhibitions of its kind.<br />

Marina Abramovic introduces one<br />

of her unique live art shows in ‘After<br />

Life’, at the Royal Academy of Arts<br />

is as unpredictable as she is<br />

Thyssen-Bornemisza<br />

One of the leading museums in Madrid, even<br />

Europe, will be honouring surrealist master,<br />

René Magritte. Over 70 carefully selected<br />

and curated works of this great artist will be<br />

on display, encapsulating the evolution of<br />

Classics that live on<br />

Visit many a stylish home or office and you will see them<br />

proudly displayed among a myriad of interior design styles,<br />

from modern to eclectic, for the most famous and coveted<br />

furniture design pieces are timeless – which means to say that<br />

they don’t age but just get better with time. By Michel Cruz<br />

Arco Floor Lamp<br />

This classic of modern décor, was<br />

designed for Flos in 1962 by Achille<br />

Castiglione and Pier Giacomo Castiglione.<br />

Its simple, pure beauty has inspired many<br />

subsequent furniture pieces.<br />

Eames Lounge Chair<br />

Husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames<br />

were among the leading pioneers in the use of new,<br />

flexible lightweight materials, and the evergreen<br />

Eames Lounge Chair is a perfect example<br />

of the design possibilities this creates.<br />

Chesterfield Sofa<br />

Quintessentially classical<br />

and British, the chesterfield<br />

sofa was named after<br />

the Earl of Chesterfield.<br />

Originally made in leather,<br />

it is now available in a<br />

wide variety of materials<br />

and designs.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

The Louis Mirror<br />

Named after Louis XIV, the mighty creator of the<br />

Palace of Versailles, where the beautifully gilded<br />

mirrors adorn large spaces, the modern version<br />

comes in many different varieties.<br />

Longcase Clock<br />

Though the wooden clock has a long tradition in middle<br />

Europe, the so-called ‘grandfather clock’ is typically<br />

British. Tall, elegant and made from gorgeous wood, this<br />

classic décor piece is making a comeback among home<br />

stylists keen to mix modern and traditional.<br />

Egg Chair<br />

The late fifties Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen looks<br />

and feels as fresh and modern now as it did 60 years<br />

ago – the hallmark of iconic, timeless design.<br />

Barcelona Chair<br />

They don’t come more famous and<br />

iconic than Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s<br />

Barcelona chair, a study in mastery of<br />

simple design that caresses the eye.<br />

New<br />

eco living<br />

and the<br />

super-rich<br />

A new type of trophy accessory adorns<br />

the world’s most luxurious homes –<br />

and it’s probably green. Zoe Dare Hall<br />

delves into the new eco-conscious<br />

lifestyles of the super-rich.<br />

ather than parading a collection of classic cars in the<br />

basement or having the Caribbean villa fully fired up 24/7 in<br />

Rcase the owners make a rare visit, contentment for ultrahigh<br />

net worth types these days is more likely to lie in a row of<br />

recycling bins and an assortment of taps.<br />

“My clients are obsessed with recycling. They ask about the<br />

recycling bins all the time - and they want five of them,” says Penny<br />

Mosgrove, CEO of Quintessentially <strong>Estate</strong>s, the property division<br />

of the global concierge company, Quintessentially. “They also want<br />

three taps for boiling, filtered and normal hot/cold water – and they<br />

don’t want to see any plastic bottles inside my car when I take them<br />

on viewings.”<br />

This eco awareness among wealthy property buyers is part of<br />

a wider shift away from showing off the most ostentatious signs of<br />

wealth, towards embracing more sustainable living.<br />

In Knight Frank’s Wealth Report <strong>2020</strong>, 73% of the world’s<br />

UHNWIs (those with a net worth of over $30m, including their<br />

primary residence) say they want their investments to have a positive<br />

environmental outcome. Some are calling it “cuddly capitalism”.<br />

For Liam Bailey, Knight Frank’s Global Head of Research, it’s about<br />

investments becoming “less bling and considerably more virtuous”.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

At a corporate level, this concept known as ESG (environmental, social and governance)<br />

puts at its heart the sustainable and ethical running of a company. At a personal level, it’s about<br />

demand for homes that promote wellbeing. “Growth in demand for a healthy outcome is driving<br />

innovation across the real estate sector,” says Bailey.<br />

For the first time, says Jane Landino, creative and design head of studio at Taylor Howes<br />

Designs in London, the concepts of luxury and sustainability are uniting. “Clients seem more<br />

conscious of not being overtly lavish or wasteful. Instead, they are using their wealth to ‘invest’ in<br />

long-term, good-quality pieces. A piece’s sustainability and ‘green’ credentials is now something<br />

for individuals to feel proud of.”<br />

Apartment reception at Regent´s Crescent.<br />

This isn’t just a superficial case of wanting to keep up with the Jones. “It’s a genuine concern.<br />

It’s about the health and wellness of the world,” emphasises Penny Mosgrove, who is seeing ‘a big<br />

eco-play’ in her clients’ demands, both in terms of what they buy and how they live.<br />

Such buyers will use local craftsmen rather than fly in furnishings, and support small, local<br />

retailers to create sought-after residential enclaves. And where their working lives mean they still<br />

need to be frequent fliers – this kind of person is often a CEO who needs to be seen by their global<br />

teams - they try to compensate at home in various ways.<br />

Having private parking spaces, for example, is no longer a pre-requisite in super-prime<br />

London, even when you are spending millions on a property. Camilla Dell, managing partner at<br />

Black Brick buying agency, mentions the recent sale of a £37m detached house in Kensington<br />

without any parking provision.<br />

“A few years ago, that would have been<br />

unthinkable,” says Dell. “Now off-street car<br />

parking is becoming less important, partly in<br />

response to environmental concerns making<br />

car ownership less of a priority. They use<br />

travel and taxi apps, and electric bicycle share<br />

schemes such as Lime instead.” Charging<br />

points for electric cars are also now a musthave<br />

in prime schemes. “I have a billionaire<br />

client who has a Tesla in every property,” says<br />

Mosgrove.<br />

Promoting a healthier planet fulfils<br />

another of the ambitions of the super-rich too<br />

– to achieve peak personal wellness. This goes<br />

far beyond having a fully-equipped Technogym<br />

and marble-clad pool in the basement. Indeed,<br />

such features are falling in popularity in<br />

super-prime circles such as central London,<br />

where pools are rarely used and expensive to<br />

maintain, and people are increasingly seeking<br />

more socially-interactive fitness classes.<br />

Instead, the world’s booming wellness<br />

real estate market – forecast to reach US$242<br />

billion by 2026, according to the US-based<br />

Facts And Figures Research – is leading to<br />

a new consciousness of how to optimise the<br />

basics in our daily lives, down to the air we<br />

breathe and the water we drink.<br />

In the sporty millionaires’ enclave of<br />

Quinta do Lago on the Algarve, ultra-high net<br />

worth buyers – now generally in their mid-40s,<br />

compared with 60+ a decade ago - are swapping<br />

their petrol vehicles for hybrids or bikes and<br />

adding wellness studios in their homes rather<br />

than a pool, says CEO Sean Moriarty. “These<br />

buyers are also demanding an eco-certified<br />

property with solar panels, energy-efficient<br />

underfloor heating and recyclable materials.<br />

Many are planning to live plastic-free day to<br />

day – and as a company we will enable this<br />

lifestyle.”<br />

Air quality – including the installation of<br />

modern ventilation systems that change the air<br />

up to 12 times a day – and private bore-holes<br />

(where drinking tap water isn’t an option) are<br />

among the new requests among super-prime<br />

buyers, according to Knight Frank’s Wealth<br />

Report <strong>2020</strong>. So, too, are sophisticated water<br />

filtration systems that remove impurities and<br />

restore health-giving minerals – the likes of<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

which can be seen in a new property in San Francisco that takes healthand<br />

eco-consciousness to new heights.<br />

Residence 950 (residence950.com), priced at $40.5m through<br />

Douglas Elliman, is an 870m 2 , LEED Platinum certified house (the<br />

highest level in green building) designed with “the health of both<br />

people and planet” in mind, says Gregory Malin, CEO of the property’s<br />

developers, Troon Pacific.<br />

“We’ve noticed that many conscious<br />

consumers are seeking a luxury lifestyle that<br />

is aligned with their values around personal<br />

health and wellness, as well as sustainable<br />

living,” Malin adds. “Solar energy, water reuse,<br />

air filtration systems and electric car charging<br />

stations are seen as big value adds. Similarly,<br />

people value a strong connection to nature<br />

through biophilic design principles and welldesigned<br />

opportunities for outdoor living.”<br />

Interior design is also embracing the need<br />

for eco-conscious innovation. Vegan design –<br />

which uses entirely cruelty- and animal-free<br />

products, from faux leather and suede to toxic<br />

free paints and wool-free brushes – is a growing<br />

niche among those seeking more sustainable<br />

living.<br />

“I don’t want to make it a barrier or<br />

make people feel guilty, but we should all<br />

be thinking of the issues around sustainability and<br />

environmental friendliness,” says Chloe Bullock of<br />

Materialise Interiors, the UK’s first designer to be<br />

certified by Vegandesign.org – an online community set<br />

up by Miami-based vegan designer Deborah diMare.<br />

“I suggest that clients use faux rather than real leather<br />

or PVC, which is full of toxins. Faux is more functional,<br />

lasts longer – and you often can’t tell the difference. It’s<br />

all about conscientious consumption.”<br />

New, eco-friendly materials are entering the interior<br />

design arena too, such as Piñatex - a leather equivalent<br />

made from natural, sustainably-sourced pineapple<br />

fibres. “Some of our private residential clients start<br />

small, requesting we use natural materials like this.<br />

Others want large-scale changes such as entire ecokitchens,<br />

which use pioneering technologies to facilitate<br />

the client’s desire for greener, plant-based living,” says<br />

Jane Landino.<br />

Harvest fresh fridges, which preserve food<br />

for longer, are a staple of the eco kitchen. So too<br />

are “smart gardens” which enable clients to grow<br />

fresh herbs and microgreens at home, “cutting down waste and<br />

eliminating transport costs – which are all things on the agenda,”<br />

says Landino.<br />

In the bathroom, smart technology can help curb overly-long<br />

showers, with gadgets such as Hydrao’s shower head whose LED lights<br />

change colour depending on the amount of water used, or U. by Moen’s<br />

voice-controlled shower that pauses until the user is ready.<br />

And Helen Westlake, creative director at the architecture/interior<br />

design firm Millier – whose prime central London schemes include<br />

the Grade 1 listed Regent’s Crescent, where residences range from<br />

£2.9m-£21.45m through Knight Frank – is always on the hunt for the<br />

latest sustainable products and suppliers. New discoveries include<br />

Sirimiri, a luxury British linen brand made from beech tree pulp,<br />

and Greenkiss, whose VAO Sofa 380 has legs made from discarded,<br />

eco-friendly solid ash. “We are finding that UHNWI’s are keen to<br />

understand exactly what steps we have taken in the design process to<br />

manage the energy consumption and carbon footprint impact with<br />

their new homes,” says Westlake.<br />

LAY London, meanwhile, is a new company on a mission to<br />

encourage those who love home-entertaining to ditch the “single<br />

use décor” and rent their homewares instead. “We saw a gap in the<br />

entertaining and hosting sector by 0providing beautiful tablescapes and<br />

beautifully-crafted wares, never previously available for hire,” explains<br />

co-founder, Jemima Herbert. “We’re introducing a sustainable and<br />

storage-friendly way to host.”<br />

Wealthy but not wasteful is the way forward.<br />

Sustainability’s<br />

New Frontiers<br />

Sustainability is flourishing as a new pillar of aspirational living,<br />

with fashion at the forefront of the revolution. No longer the worthy<br />

but decidedly poor cousin to more tantalising options, from digital<br />

couture and ‘prestige preloved’ to the rise of vegan luxe, sustainable<br />

style is parlaying initial curiosity into genuine prestige status.<br />

By Katie Baron<br />

Island Feather.<br />

n December 2019, deep in a Royal Albert Hall<br />

buzzing with a galaxy of fashion greats (from Mr.<br />

IArmani himself to Bottega Veneta’s superstar<br />

creative director Daniel Lee), the British Fashion<br />

Awards played host to Central Saint Martin’s<br />

annual White Show, Opus 19. A rite-of-passage<br />

for BA students at the prestigious college – all of<br />

whom produce a single garment from two metres<br />

of white fabric at the end of their first term as a<br />

declaration of personal creative intent – this year’s<br />

show delivered a singular punch of a message:<br />

power. Emblazoned on a banner held aloft by<br />

19-year-old student Johnny MacLean as he walked<br />

in the opening look, the flip side succinctly shot<br />

home: Climate Emergency.<br />

Famously a showcase of raw<br />

talent unbridled by commercial<br />

restraints, ironically, it captured a<br />

significant sea-change in the cultural<br />

and consumer mood. It was little<br />

surprise that one of the night’s big<br />

winners was Bethany Williams,<br />

named Emerging Menswear Talent<br />

just two show seasons in thanks to<br />

cleverly crafted pieces of festivalmeets-streetwear<br />

cool made entirely<br />

from recycled, organic or handmade<br />

fabrics. Think: oversized recycled<br />

wool intarsia knits, panelled<br />

outerwear crafted from revived<br />

nylon and reconstituted denim<br />

hoodies, with powerhouse price tags<br />

– coats vary from £750 to £4,500 –<br />

indicative of the meticulous work.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Williams, who is also notable for community values (every<br />

season she works with different charitable causes including<br />

regularly employing people from local social initiatives such as<br />

drug rehabilitation groups) is actually part of a formidable line-up<br />

of London-based talent melding luxury fashion and eco-ethical<br />

desirability. Others include innovator Christopher Raeburn whose<br />

outerwear is largely created using high-performance surplus<br />

materials such as defunct military parachutes, and Martina Spetlova<br />

– a Czechoslovakian-born former chemist who’s substituted insights<br />

into compounds for specialist materials manipulations. Now almost<br />

as famous for pioneering smart tech as she is her butter-soft woven<br />

leather jackets and accessories in pitch-perfect colour palettes,<br />

she’s currently partnering with British blockchain experts Provenance<br />

on a system that gives garment owners visibility on the origins,<br />

people, processes, journey and materials that constitutes every inch<br />

of her pieces.<br />

Martina Spetlova bag.<br />

There’s also Phoebe English, an avant-garde<br />

British designer whose deceptively simple, borderline<br />

androgynous styling underscores the beauty to be found<br />

in deadstock materials, a resurrection of artisanal skills<br />

on the brink of expiration and zero-waste pattern cutting.<br />

More overtly glamourous eco-turns have come from cherished<br />

players such as British-Afghan Osman Yousefzada famed for his<br />

elegant, feminine and fun-loving ensembles (from brocade suits and<br />

Emery Black - vegan leather.<br />

Island Feather.<br />

romantic sculptural dresses to<br />

draped sequinned tops) whose<br />

AW19 vegan leather pieces<br />

were created via a process that’s<br />

both chrome and chemical free<br />

- countering the considerable<br />

confusion surrounding ecopositive<br />

style; while veganism may<br />

be an acknowledged winner for<br />

person and planet, petrochemicalbased<br />

vegan leather products can<br />

take much longer to biodegrade<br />

than the traditional materials,<br />

sometimes up to 500 years.<br />

Indeed, vegan fashion, once<br />

a mulch of hemp waistcoats<br />

and fetid fabrics from a parallel<br />

universe that style forgot, is<br />

experiencing a serious perception<br />

overhaul. Stella McCartney, a<br />

long-term advocate of cruelty-free<br />

clothing arguably kick-started<br />

fashion fans’ appreciation for faux<br />

leather luxe with her accessories,<br />

including her delectable rubber<br />

boots. Feeding that rising appetite<br />

are brands including Hungarianoriginated<br />

label Nanushka, which<br />

bills itself as ‘the modern<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

ethical cred. Garments range from sustainable sportwear by Stella<br />

McCartney to pretty much everything from the laidback Cali-coolgirl<br />

vibe of Reformation. But few have made the kind of waves of<br />

The Maiyet Collective – a concept cofounded by beyond-fashion<br />

heavyweight Paul Van Zyl, a South African human rights lawyer who<br />

worked on South Africa’s post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation<br />

commission. Originally conceived as monthly pop-up of 50-60<br />

brands housed inside London members’ club The Conduit, every<br />

element of department store style concept (from the décor to the<br />

discussion to the culinary manifesto) promoted a sustainable agenda.<br />

Bearing shades of his political focus on unification and progression,<br />

Van Zyl said at the time, “Everyone will have equal access to<br />

support and see what one another is doing; sharing thoughts around<br />

everything from cause marketing to supply chains. This is about<br />

creating a tide that will lift all boats.” Shopping with the collective<br />

now predominantly happens online, alongside a regular IRL designer-<br />

bohemian’ and was recently hailed by the US edition of style bible<br />

L’Officiel magazine as “Instagram’s favourite vegan brand.” Dealing<br />

in a seductive breed of modernist chic, signature sell-out pieces<br />

include its ‘hide’ puffer jacket and a midi-length dress languishing<br />

somewhere between a classic trench and a kimono-esque dressing<br />

the avoidance of harmful chemicals during production).<br />

Accessories brands are also closing in on the groundswell, from<br />

Californian brand Melie Bianco’s handbags to British brand MULO<br />

shoes, a label whose signature style – a premium reimagining of the<br />

humble espadrille – has been reconfigured for the spring/summer<br />

<strong>2020</strong> season with plush vegan-friendly linings. Barely out of the<br />

blocks, launched April <strong>2020</strong>, is UK-headquartered luxury footwear<br />

brand AllKind whose shoes are handmade in Spain. Not atypical for<br />

this blossoming sector, the entire business model is wrapped in a halo<br />

of uncompromising conscious consumption – proudly ‘vegan, ethical,<br />

sustainable, original and Carbon Positive<br />

from launch’, it’s the brainchild of an<br />

entirely female collective of British vegan<br />

entrepreneurs.<br />

Collectives are indeed a key factor<br />

in leveraging the status of eco-luxe,<br />

magnets for mobilising a demanding new<br />

generation of sustainability connoisseurs<br />

turned on by intelligent spending. Rêve en<br />

Vert was early to the table – the luxurious<br />

online platform quietly described by<br />

industry insiders as ‘the Net-a-Porter<br />

of sustainable fashion’ curates the best<br />

eco-sensitive brands, wrapped in editorial<br />

features. Farfetch now has Positively<br />

partnership with independent agency<br />

Good On You that rates brands’ eco-<br />

That pursuit of haute sustainability is indelibly<br />

intertwined materials innovations, itself a booming<br />

industry and exemplified by brands such as Pangaia<br />

– an international bio-engineering materials science<br />

collective ‘on a mission to save our environment’.<br />

Intensely attuned to the autumn/winter <strong>2020</strong> trend<br />

for cocoon-style outerwear of epic proportions, it<br />

kicked off the year in seriously directional fashion<br />

Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço, formerly of Lanvin and<br />

transparency-dedicated, gender-fluid label is similarly ensconced<br />

in reimagining classic outerwear garments; key items include ‘duvet<br />

coats’ insulated with used plastic bottles in lieu of traditional<br />

animal down.<br />

Swimwear too, is a hive of eco-elite innovation; Stay Wild Swim,<br />

founded by Natalie Glaze and Zanna Van Dijk, is a collection of<br />

satisfyingly inclusive sporty-looking pieces made from regenerated<br />

ocean plastic, while Island Feather reduces waste by going double<br />

duty: it’s fitness apparel can be worn to run, do yoga or surf, a capsule<br />

fitness wardrobe for the Marie Kondo generation.<br />

Denim is another sweet spot for sustainable visionaries, thanks<br />

to its long-time status as a cult staple that transcends trends and so<br />

nicely primed for an era where excess seems increasingly gauche.<br />

Exemplifying this shift is Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, London’s only<br />

craft denim jeans maker. Founded by Turkish-born tailoring guru<br />

Han Ate, a self-confessed devotee of the Bauhaus movement’s famous<br />

‘form follows function’ principles (as, incidentally, is Nanushka’s<br />

founder Sandra Sandor) fans are actively discouraged from ever<br />

buying more than two pairs of its organic raw denim masterpieces<br />

to high fashion’s infiltration<br />

Porsche:<br />

Evolution<br />

to Revolution<br />

Having spent over 70 years redefining the benchmark<br />

in every aspect of the automotive spectrum, Porsche is a<br />

true standard-bearer for machines honed for both road<br />

and racetrack. The marque’s pedigree in motorsport now<br />

forms a definitive part of the brand DNA, and lessons<br />

learned from over 30,000 racing victories bleed into the<br />

genetic makeup of every vehicle to leave the company’s<br />

renowned Stuttgart headquarters. By Sam Hexter<br />

ow leading the charge in the electric vehicle uprising, Porsche<br />

celebrates a long and illustrious history spanning back over seven<br />

decades; to a time before SUVs and turbocharging, when simple and<br />

Nsleek design cues were king.<br />

The luxury performance car marque’s eminent history first began on 8th<br />

June 1948 in Gmünd, Austria, when it acquired an operating permit for its first<br />

road-ready production car: the 356 roadster. This light and nimble, open-top<br />

prototype featured hand-sculpted aluminium body panels and was powered<br />

by a mid-mounted flat-four-cylinder engine, responsible for some 40bhp.<br />

The primitive 356 was an impressive and gorgeously finished machine for<br />

its era, and would go on to provide a platform that Porsche would build upon<br />

with unparalleled success for years to come. It paved the way for many design<br />

philosophies that are still prevalent in the manufacturer’s current line-up,<br />

thanks to a strict mantra of evolution over revolution.<br />

Based on this winning recipe, Porsche secured a highly decorated history<br />

on the track; from dominating the Targa Florio in the late 1950s right up<br />

until 1970, to winning the prestigious and gruelling Le Mans endurance race<br />

a record-breaking 19 times. Porsche has been valiantly represented in almost<br />

every race on four wheels.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Porsche Taycan.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Whilst much of the brand’s legacy surrounds the legendary aircooled<br />

flat-six era of the 911, with cars like the monstrous 935 or the<br />

delicate and harmonious 2.7-litre RS from the early 1970s – creating<br />

one of the longest running production models of all time, and arguably<br />

the most iconic silhouette in motoring – Porsche leads in innovation<br />

and thrives in the face of adversity. It’s with this determination that<br />

we usher in a new generation, and the next evolutionary step in the<br />

brand’s rich tapestry with the all-new Taycan.<br />

Porsche 365 Speedster.<br />

Taking on stiff competition in the electric vehicle market,<br />

previously ruled by Tesla, the Porsche Taycan has redefined<br />

what is possible with current, albeit highly futuristic,<br />

EV technologies. Headline figures for the range topping<br />

Taycan Turbo S are certainly mind-bending. 100km/h<br />

will be met in a mere 2.6 seconds thanks to a total power<br />

output of a staggering 761PS or 751bhp. This is all coming<br />

from what is essentially a family-sized saloon, akin to the<br />

Panamera in its dimensions and shape, whilst returning<br />

a respectable 400km range. That means this supercarslaying<br />

performance is available whilst transporting up to<br />

4 passengers. That in itself pays homage to a long-standing<br />

Porsche design staple: duality. Harping back to the iconic<br />

and ever formidable 911; it’s treasured because of its ability<br />

to provide a comfortable commute in seamless tandem with<br />

thrills on snaking tarmac.<br />

The exterior styling of the Taycan is an experience<br />

to scrutinize – the longer you look at it, the more hidden<br />

ducts and diffusers make themselves known. The front end<br />

is dominated by the signature four-point LEDs, flanked<br />

by aggressive, long lateral intakes. The profile of the car<br />

remains sharp thanks to flat flyline door handles and<br />

muscular arches. The rear is accented by a classic Porsche<br />

lightbar recessed beneath an active three-stage spoiler.<br />

Inside the luscious and contemporary cabin, there are<br />

many subtle nods to the timeless models that predate it.<br />

Most notably, the dashboard and instrument cluster pay<br />

fitting tribute to the air-cooled cars of old, whilst delivering<br />

a driving experience light-years ahead of its time.<br />

There’s no denying the Taycan is a triumph in both<br />

engineering and design, and thanks to its knife-edge<br />

handling, it’s the first car to give motoring enthusiasts<br />

hope for the future of electric vehicles. This is a defining<br />

moment in automotive history,<br />

and Porsche has proven its<br />

supremacy once again in<br />

delivering performance and<br />

practicality, style and substance.<br />

If the future of the racebred<br />

marque can be secured<br />

by this stirring exercise into<br />

the EV space, and it provides<br />

Porsche with a few more years<br />

of creating the incredible<br />

naturally aspirated machines<br />

for which it’s synonymous, I for<br />

one am incredibly happy for the<br />

Taycan’s existence. Perhaps this<br />

will define the beginning of the<br />

electric revolution.<br />

Whisky<br />

Traditionally the tipple of choice among the wood-panelled<br />

walls and swirling cigar smoke of private gentlemen’s clubs,<br />

whisky has broken out to become not just cool – but<br />

the most desirable luxury collectible. By Zoe Dare Hall<br />

The Proofing Room - Milroy´s of Spitalfields.<br />

eaving all other investments of passion, including wine, art, jewellery and<br />

Lclassic cars, trailing in its mellifluous wake, rare whisky has grown in<br />

value by 564% in the past 10 years, and by 5% in the past 12 months,<br />

according to Knight Frank’s Wealth Report <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

Seasoned collectors continue to seek out the oldest, rarest examples from<br />

distilleries such as Dalmore and Springbank, and The Macallan continues to grab<br />

headlines, with a bottle of the distillery’s 1926 Fine & Rare selling for £1.2m at<br />

Sotheby’s last October.<br />

But the whisky market has diversified beyond its best-known brands. “Smaller<br />

names are aspiring to be part of the premiumisation of single malt. Twenty years<br />

ago, the longer-aged malts were mainly from famous distilleries, but today every<br />

distillery in Scotland is bottling something special,” comments Suhkinder Singh,<br />

co-founder of London’s The Whisky Exchange.<br />

behind the Heaven’s Door brand.<br />

Younger connoisseurs such as 33-year-old<br />

Martyn Simpson - owner of London’s oldest<br />

whisky specialist, Milroys of Soho,<br />

and a new second branch in Shoreditch - are<br />

also breaking down barriers and stigmas in<br />

the whisky world. “I fell in love with<br />

whisky when I had my first taste, a 1989<br />

Bunnahabhain, about 12 years ago, and now<br />

I’ve fallen in love with indie bottling – the<br />

single cask, hard to find stuff,” says Simpson,<br />

widely known as Simo. He is more rock ‘n’ roll<br />

than on the rocks with his love of tattoos and<br />

motorbikes, but has become a leading expert<br />

‘in a very incestuous industry’.<br />

<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

There is a natural synergy between whisky and<br />

wood, given all Scotch whisky is matured in oak<br />

casks, and bespoke LED-lit cabinets are becoming<br />

a more prominent feature in new super-prime<br />

properties dressed by interior designers.<br />

At Chelsea Barracks in London, the billiards<br />

room in the residents’ Garrison Club features a<br />

whisky wall, designed by Elicyon, where owners<br />

can store their favourite bottles. “We felt this better<br />

suited the Club than a wine store. We imagine the<br />

residents using the whisky wall as part of their<br />

social space – an extension of their apartments,”<br />

says Elicyon’s founder, Charu Gandhi.<br />

Designer Laura Hammett, of Laura Hammett<br />

Interiors, adds that whisky bottles lend themselves<br />

to a fun display, dressed with beautiful glass vessels<br />

and modern decanters. “This little touch of Mad<br />

Men or Film Noir resonates with today’s high net<br />

worth individuals,” says Hammett. “It ignites a<br />

feeling of opulence and elegance.”<br />

The Rockstar, Whisky bar at a Stockholm Apartment.<br />

Whisky is to be drunk, not stored, says Simo. But for those looking<br />

to amass a collection, “You are paying for rarity, not quality. People buy<br />

it and sit on it. Spend £1,000 on a bottle now and in 18 years that will be<br />

worth £20,000. The cash margin is a lot higher than buying property.”<br />

His average customer, though, spends £30-£60 a bottle. “The<br />

bottom of the ladder has become very good, which is driving a lot more<br />

people into the whisky world. They see the shining beacons – the<br />

£1.2m Macallans - but you need good stuff at the bottom to get people<br />

interested and climbing the ladder.”<br />

For those serious about building a collection, whisky is far easier to<br />

store than wine. “You don’t need a temperature-controlled room - just<br />

keep it away from direct light - and you can display it upright so you can<br />

see the label and box, so it’s a lot better-looking than wine,” says Simo,<br />

who curates the collections of wealthy private clients, including one<br />

collector who has a £1m collection of 1,000 bottles lining all four walls<br />

of his basement.<br />

Designers are latching on to the growing desire to showcase such<br />

prized bottles. Ivar London’s Will walnut, oak and copper whisky<br />

cabinet, priced at £7,200, has proved a hit among male customers.<br />

“Whisky is a pure pleasure and a pure luxury good that makes people<br />

think of happy, spoilt times,” says Ivar’s founder Patrick Doughty.<br />

Or there’s Buster & Punch’s £3,800 Rockstar Whisky Bar, made<br />

from American walnut and grey berry silk. Founder Massimo Buster<br />

Minale has also designed a special lock, called a Precious Bar – “a pair<br />

of furniture pulls that look like a beautiful piece of jewellery,” he<br />

describes – to keep his whisky collection secure when he rented out<br />

his London flat on AirBnB.<br />

Architects<br />

from SPAin<br />

Who have made a name for themselves<br />

Most people will have heard of<br />

Antoni Gaudí, the ingenious creator<br />

of Barcelona’s iconic landmark, the<br />

Sagrada Familia, but thereafter the<br />

list of well-known Spanish architects<br />

thins out quickly. Which is strange,<br />

as this country has a rich heritage of<br />

design that spans the centuries and<br />

continues today. By Michel Cruz<br />

Santiago Calatrava<br />

Perhaps the most famous of modern Spanish architects is<br />

Santiago Calatrava, whose reputation carries far and wide.<br />

Born near Valencia, he helped to revitalise the city through<br />

the creation of a futuristic new arts and sciences complex on<br />

the outskirts of the centre. The iconic structures created here<br />

helped to put Valencia on the map the way the Guggenheim did<br />

in Bilbao, but they also made Calatrava a controversial figure<br />

in his homeland.<br />

An engineer as well as architect, he has become famous<br />

for the many bridges he designed, from Seville to Rotterdam,<br />

basing these, and also communication towers, office blocks,<br />

galleries and museums, upon the structures of the body, a<br />

philosophy that is also visible in Calatrava’s designs for the<br />

Athens Olympic sports complex – the grand opus of a man who<br />

has given Spanish architecture renewed stature in the world.<br />

<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Fernando Higueras<br />

Terrazas de Las Lomas del <strong>Marbella</strong> Club, <strong>Marbella</strong>..<br />

The name Fernando Higueras may not be as universally famous as<br />

that of Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Norman Foster or<br />

Zaha Hadid, but in reality he is one of Spain’s greatest modern<br />

architects and during the 1970s belonged to an international elite.<br />

Born in Madrid in 1930, his style came to represent a fusion of<br />

Constructivist, rationalist and organic architecture. Though typical<br />

of his era in that he worked a lot with concrete and created heavy,<br />

solid structures, Higueras moulded this industrial material into<br />

natural, organic forms that either mimicked nature or were inspired<br />

by the setting of each individual project.<br />

As he rose through the ranks and established a name for himself,<br />

the projects grew in scale to encompass an oeuvre composed of the<br />

Spanish Pavilion in New York, the Fierro House in <strong>Marbella</strong>, the<br />

La Corona de Espinas complex in Madrid and Hotel Las Salinas in<br />

Lanzarote, the latter two of which have been listed for their cultural<br />

and architectural significance.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Ricardo Bofill<br />

La Muralla Roja, Calpe.<br />

A contemporary of Higueras, Bofill<br />

represents the rich design tradition<br />

of Barcelona, of which he has become<br />

an important exponent. His Taller de<br />

Arquitectura emerged as a leading studio<br />

from the 1960s onwards, racking up<br />

over 1,000 projects completed in over<br />

50 countries to date. From his very first<br />

project, a summer villa in Ibiza designed<br />

at the tender age of 17, Ricardo Bofill’s<br />

portfolio has grown to include churches,<br />

villages, offices, housing estates and<br />

private villas. His vision is clear in the<br />

transformation of an old, disused ruin<br />

of a cement factory into the suitably<br />

mesmerising head office of his Barcelonabased<br />

architectural practice, RBTA.<br />

Though famous enough, with iconic<br />

projects to his name across Barcelona and<br />

Spain, in France, Algeria and other parts<br />

of the world, Ricardo Bofill is perhaps<br />

one of the most underrated architects of<br />

all time, for his is a singular mastery of<br />

form that blends touches of industrial<br />

brutalism with nature, culture and a<br />

sense of magic. Indeed, his creations<br />

conjure up the ethereal to offer not just<br />

Les Espaces d’Abraxes, Paris.<br />

housing or functional spaces, but the power to stir emotions. Walden<br />

7 (Barcelona), La Muralla Roja (Costa Blanca), the Meritxell<br />

Sanctuary (Andorra), Les Espaces d’Abraxes (Paris) and the Houari<br />

Boumedienne agricultural village in Algeria all attest to the almost<br />

Escher-like geometry of this unique architect.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Carme Pinós<br />

D4 Departments Building, campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business.<br />

Enric Miralles was married twice, both times to a fellow<br />

architect. His first wife was Carme Pinós, also from<br />

Barcelona, who rose to fame in the 1980s and 1990s,<br />

first in partnership with her then husband, and later as<br />

an independent architect with her own practice. Public<br />

projects in Barcelona were followed by parks, schools and<br />

wineries in her native Olot, in the Catalonian countryside.<br />

The experience garnered here through a constant process<br />

of experimentation and immersion in the local cultural and<br />

natural setting was recognised in the form of commissions<br />

to design a museum, auditorium and cultural centre in<br />

Zaragoza, an art and design centre in Barcelona, and a hotel<br />

complex in Mallorca.<br />

More work followed in Spain, in the form of bridges,<br />

waterfront refurbishments and a long list of public works,<br />

including the Catalan government’s headquarters, museums,<br />

urban renovation projects, and designs for corporate and<br />

public clients in Latin America. Pinó is also responsible<br />

for the design of the campus of the Vienna University of<br />

Economics and Business, whose angular forms recall the<br />

jagged geometry of another famous architect, Frank Gehry.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Mare Nostrum Tower, Barcelona.<br />

Enric Miralles<br />

Also a native of Barcelona, Miralles continued the Catalan penchant for unusual, pioneering<br />

forms driven by a strong sense of artistry and social conscience. It led at first to mostly<br />

specialised public projects such as the Igualada Cemetery, the archery range and pergola at the<br />

Olympic village, as well as the conversion of the Santa Caterina, all in Barcelona. The rather<br />

unique styling of projects like this drew attention, and earned Enric Miralles national and<br />

international recognition. It is<br />

hard to pin his style down, but<br />

he was influenced at once by<br />

the machinist brutalism of Le<br />

Corbusier and the more vernacular,<br />

natural architecture of Alvar Aalto.<br />

This much is visible in works<br />

such as the extension to the city<br />

hall in Utrecht, the Netherlands,<br />

and the Scottish parliament<br />

building in Edinburgh, though<br />

perhaps the skyscraper he designed<br />

to be the corporate headquarters<br />

of Gas Natural deviates from the<br />

more idiosyncratic style associated<br />

with him.<br />

Fashion<br />

Last July, Selfridges department store in London – renowned<br />

internationally revered crew of new gen digital creatives to help<br />

compose The New Order. By Katie Baron<br />

he future-gazing extravaganza,<br />

spanning every floor and window<br />

of the famous space (as well as the Tbrand’s e-commerce site) was conceived to<br />

showcase a not-so-distant future for retail,<br />

full of tantalising mixed reality experiences,<br />

AI-infused activations and delectable digital<br />

fashion. While all those things will form the<br />

fabric of our future downtime the latter is<br />

especially hot property right now. Arguably, it<br />

was the CGI superstars that sowed the seed of<br />

this blossoming love affair off: see Lil Miquela<br />

– the virtual mega-influencer (rumoured to be<br />

based on an LA-based blogger) who promoted<br />

Prada’s A/W 18/19 catwalk show on social<br />

media. Or Shudu Gram whose career began<br />

by gracing Instagram ads for Balmain and<br />

modelling lipstick for Rihanna’s brand, Fenty.<br />

Messaging, too, has fuelled the appetite for the<br />

unreal: From late 2018 users of Genies, which<br />

lets people create digital clones of themselves<br />

to use in messaging apps, have been able<br />

to dress their diminutive digital doubles in<br />

virtual items from Gucci. Soon they’ll be able to<br />

buy both the physical and the virtual versions<br />

in-app with one click, too.<br />

Top that off with gaming’s compelling<br />

journey into credibility (according to a report<br />

by youth consultancy YPulse 84% of teens now<br />

believe cool to play video games) and digital<br />

style is increasingly where it’s at. Moschino<br />

certainly knew it: in spring 2019, creative<br />

director Jeremy Scott created a (real-world)<br />

Carlings + Virtue.<br />

capsule collection of clothing and accessories<br />

to celebrate iconic life simulation game The<br />

Sims 20 th anniversary, swiftly replicated<br />

in-game for dressing gamers’ avatars. With<br />

spending on clothes ‘aka skins’ in games<br />

predicted to hit $50bn by just <strong>2020</strong> it’s<br />

unsurprising Louis Vuitton’s also secured it’s<br />

slice of the action. It recently released a set<br />

of virtual garments for the game League of<br />

Legends, unlocked via gameplay, with real-life<br />

versions promised later this year.<br />

Gaming may be the primary gateway to<br />

digital fashion, but the appetite for exceptional<br />

digital artisanship is already evolving into<br />

something more culturally expansive. In<br />

May 2019, the world’s first piece of ‘digital<br />

couture’ was sold at auction<br />

for $9,500 at the Ethereal<br />

Summit in New York. Called<br />

Iridescence, the hyper-real<br />

shimmering maxi dress was<br />

created by Dutch digital-only<br />

fashion house The Fabricant in<br />

collaboration with Berlin-based<br />

artist Johanna Jaskowska and<br />

Dapper Labs (the creators of<br />

blockchain game CryptoKitties),<br />

ready to be ‘digitally tailored’ to<br />

a high-quality photo of the<br />

winning bidder. Thanks to its<br />

blockchain backbone – a kind<br />

of digital passport from the<br />

moment of its creation – the<br />

dreamy virtual garment can also<br />

be traded over and over again,<br />

taking the notion of vintage<br />

fashion into a whole new and<br />

infinitely fascinating realm.<br />

For those with piqued<br />

interest, but less desire to<br />

part with such funds, look to Norwegian<br />

retailer Carlings and its genderless, digitalonly<br />

collections that are focused on style but<br />

also the power of digital garments to support<br />

a sustainable agenda. The first was a series of<br />

trend-led streetwear ensembles, each e-fitted<br />

by 3D motion designers to an image of the<br />

consumers for just €10-30 ($12-35) a piece.<br />

The fact it sold out immediately affirms that<br />

the future of fashion is still bright, just as long<br />

as it’s perfectly pixelated.<br />

2019 was the fourth consecutive year that<br />

overall individual artist records fell, while<br />

record sums were paid for works by living<br />

artists – such as Jeff Koons’ stainless steel<br />

Rabbit, which sold for US$91 million in May.<br />

With a rise of around 5% this year, the art<br />

market continues to adapt to a slowing supply<br />

of works by Impressionists and Modern<br />

masters. Other winners in contemporary sales<br />

were urban artists Invader, who broke the<br />

US$1 million mark at auction for the first<br />

time with the tile mosaic TK_119, and Banksy,<br />

whose painting Devolved Parliament sold for<br />

around five times the artist’s previous record in<br />

2008.<br />

Whisky<br />

Andy Simpson, Rare Whisky 101<br />

Significant over-supply and a softening in values<br />

for the market leader, The Macallan, made<br />

for a challenging start to the year, reflected in<br />

a half-year fall of 2.67% in our Knight Frank<br />

Index. As supply eased, the second half of<br />

2019 fared much better, and the Index finished<br />

the year up 5%. Significant trends included<br />

the emergence of challenger brands in the<br />

secondary market, and growing interest in<br />

sherried Scotch. Collectors continued to seek<br />

out the oldest, rarest examples from iconic<br />

distilleries such as Dalmore, Springbank,<br />

Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Bowmore and Brora, and<br />

casks remained in huge demand. But, just as in<br />

2018, the headlines belong to The Macallan,<br />

with a bottle of the distillery’s 1926 Fine & Rare<br />

fetching £1.2 million at Sotheby’s in October.<br />

Coloured diamonds<br />

Miri Chen, Fancy Color Research Foundation<br />

Bucking the trend of the past two years, yellow<br />

diamonds performed well as declining prices<br />

made them more accessible to the end client.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

While high-end pink and blue diamonds<br />

performed very well on the retail side, auction<br />

prices appeared low, reflecting the inferior<br />

quality of many of the coloured diamonds that<br />

find their way to auction. The real action here<br />

is at retail level, behind closed doors, where<br />

the goods sold tend to be of better quality and<br />

so fetch higher prices. Looking ahead, it will<br />

be interesting to see what happens to Argyle<br />

diamonds, with the mine set to close in <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

THE BAG<br />

e all know that splashing out<br />

on designer fashion labels can<br />

be expensive. Nonetheless, the Widea of paying six figures for a used<br />

The Wealth Report exclusively reveals the results of the<br />

first index dedicated to tracking the burgeoning market<br />

for collectable handbags and delves into the world<br />

of this emerging asset class. Words by Andrew Shirley<br />

handbag may sound somewhat extreme.<br />

Increasingly, though, serious collectors are<br />

spending this kind of money at auction for<br />

the ultimate handbag “must have” – the exotic<br />

Himalaya Birkin, produced by Hermès.<br />

In 2017, Christie’s set the world auction<br />

record for the most expensive handbag when<br />

it sold a Himalaya Birkin with white gold<br />

and diamond hardware. Under the hammer<br />

in Hong Kong, it achieved the equivalent<br />

of US$386,000. Since then, the secondary<br />

market for handbags has continued to grow,<br />

with pieces fetching dizzying sums on a<br />

regular basis. Indeed, such is the demand<br />

that Christie’s now host seven live and online<br />

auctions each year, in Asia, the US and the<br />

UK. Aficionados can visit entire museums<br />

devoted to them – one in South Korea is even<br />

bag shaped – and in April, the V&A in London<br />

launches a dedicated exhibition, Bags: Inside<br />

Out. Passionate collectors such as Singapore<br />

socialite and entrepreneur Jamie Chua and<br />

Paris-based Julia Kovaljova have thousands of<br />

social media followers.<br />

As with other investments of passion like<br />

rare whisky whose value has risen sharply in<br />

recent years, handbags are increasingly being<br />

seen as an investment class in their own right,<br />

as well as highly desirable fashion accessories.<br />

To that end, Art Market Research (AMR),<br />

which supplies much of the data for the Knight<br />

Frank <strong>Luxury</strong> Investment Index (KFLII), has<br />

launched the first indices tracking the price<br />

performance of handbags. For KFLII, we focus<br />

specifically on bags made by Hermès. Over<br />

the past ten years, this index has more than<br />

doubled in value, rising by 13% in 2019 alone.<br />

Handbags are increasingly<br />

being seen as an investment<br />

class in their own right,<br />

as well as highly desirable<br />

fashion accessories<br />

Christie's Rachel Koffsky examines an auction lot.<br />

“All of our indices on antiques and<br />

collectables use a basket of goods methodology<br />

in the same way as the consumer price<br />

index,” says AMR’s Sebastian Duthy. “However,<br />

it’s only been possible to create an index<br />

on handbags now because of the frequency<br />

with which many iconic pieces are coming to<br />

auction today.”<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Although bags made by other luxury<br />

brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton are<br />

also highly collectable, it is those made by<br />

Hermès that attract the highest prices and<br />

are considered the most desirable.<br />

“The history of Hermès and the<br />

craftsmanship of the maison are intrinsic to<br />

the pieces, which greatly affects demand for,<br />

and therefore the value of, its handbags,”<br />

explains Rachel Koffsky, Head of Sales for<br />

Christie’s Handbag department in London.<br />

“Hermès was established in 1837 as<br />

a harness workshop. At the turn of the<br />

century new products were introduced as<br />

the maison diversified in order to meet the<br />

demands of a changing world, but the<br />

commitment to craftsmanship remained<br />

steadfast. The first handbags created for<br />

ladies were designed in response to the<br />

invention of the automobile, and were<br />

crafted in the workshop using some of the<br />

techniques utilised in the creation of the<br />

famous saddles.<br />

“Other brands have come and gone, but<br />

in the century since these first handbags were<br />

introduced, the materials and techniques<br />

used by Hermès have remained extremely<br />

consistent – which is why so many have<br />

survived. The Birkin, for example, is made<br />

by hand in an atelier and can take up to 40<br />

hours using a double-needle saddle stitch<br />

that cannot be replicated by a machine. It is<br />

the pinnacle of what a handbag can be.<br />

“With other contemporary brands,<br />

while bags may still be of high quality,<br />

sometimes fashion is the primary function.<br />

Hermès bags are made to last. That’s not to<br />

say we don’t sell beautiful bags from other<br />

makers – but there are far fewer of them.”<br />

Investor of passion<br />

The Wealth Report talks to<br />

Paris-based handbag collector<br />

Julia Kovaljova<br />

What inspired you to start collecting<br />

handbags?<br />

I was always interested in fashion, and<br />

I believe that shoes and accessories are<br />

the key to any look. There is no more<br />

important accessory than a handbag – not<br />

only is it your major styling element, it’s<br />

also a daily necessity.<br />

Do you have a favourite brand?<br />

Hermès, of course! Its styles transcend<br />

fashion. Occasionally I will also buy a<br />

rare Chanel limited edition bag or clutch.<br />

Do you remember your first Hermès bag?<br />

Yes, it was a 32cm Kelly bag in orange,<br />

the brand's signature colour. I thought<br />

it would be appropriate to start with an<br />

iconic colour and style, named after HRH<br />

Princess Grace of Monaco. Even now,<br />

this style remains my favourite.<br />

Do you have vintage bags in your<br />

collection as well as new editions?<br />

Which do you prefer, and why?<br />

As an experienced collector, I am no<br />

longer interested in regular Kelly, Birkin<br />

and Constance handbags. But every year<br />

Hermès reissues and updates these styles,<br />

with a new leather, a new combination of<br />

materials, an interesting colour or pattern,<br />

skin inserts, appliqué or a theme. These<br />

are the bags I try to get for my collection.<br />

Vintage, though, is my special love because<br />

I enjoy the whole process of searching<br />

for them. They were issued a long time<br />

ago, in limited quantities, and will never<br />

be produced again, which makes them<br />

very valuable. To find such a bag in good<br />

condition and for a good price is the<br />

biggest joy for a true collector. I have some<br />

vintage bags that I only bought just a few<br />

years ago, but which have already doubled<br />

in value.<br />

How many bags do you have in your<br />

collection now?<br />

If we are talking about classic styles such<br />

as the Kelly, Birkin and Constance, then<br />

around 100 pieces.<br />

Which is the rarest or most valuable?<br />

And which is your favourite?<br />

The rarest are probably the Kelly Picnic<br />

and Kelly Teddy, the most valuable right<br />

now is a Birkin Himalaya (see page 93),<br />

and my favourite is a vintage Kelly from<br />

1992 in simple black box leather. It was<br />

customised to my design by the artisan<br />

who used to manufacture these bags for<br />

Hermès. This bag is the only one in the<br />

whole world – a collector from Asia spent<br />

a long time trying to persuade me to sell<br />

it, but I could not do it.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

The essential guide<br />

to Hermès handbags<br />

Don’t know your Constance from your Kelly? Never fear,<br />

this guide to the three most collected Hermès bags from<br />

Christie’s Rachel Koffsky will turn you into an expert.<br />

Is there a bag you don’t have that<br />

you really want?<br />

There are lots! Mainly bags from<br />

limited editions or vintage pieces<br />

such as the Kelly So Black created<br />

by Jean Paul Gaultier or the Kelly<br />

Dalmatian. To be honest, with<br />

my experience and connections,<br />

I could have secured these bags<br />

on the secondary market by<br />

paying a high price, but as a true<br />

collector, I would always prefer<br />

The Constance<br />

Named after the fifth child of<br />

Hermès designer Catherine<br />

Chaillet – the first bag is said to<br />

have left the factory on the day<br />

she was born – the Constance,<br />

which first entered the market<br />

in 1959, is perhaps the least<br />

well known of our trio. However,<br />

collectors admire its elegant<br />

shape and functional design.<br />

to make a good deal!<br />

Do you view your collection as<br />

an investment or as something to<br />

enjoy and treasure?<br />

When I started buying Hermès<br />

handbags, it was purely for the joy<br />

of owning them. Over time, however,<br />

I began to realise that they were also<br />

an investment. Of course, just as in<br />

the art world, not every piece will<br />

become more valuable and as a<br />

collector it’s important to understand<br />

how to create a collection that will<br />

become more valuable over time.<br />

You are active on social media.<br />

Is that an important aspect of your<br />

The Kelly<br />

Originally known as the Sac à<br />

dépêches, the style was created<br />

in 1935 by Émile-Maurice Hermès<br />

so his wife could have a bag that<br />

was more convenient to carry.<br />

In 1956, Princess Grace of Monaco,<br />

the former actress Grace Kelly,<br />

used her Hermès Sac to shield<br />

her pregnancy from the paparazzi,<br />

gaining the bag worldwide<br />

attention – and a new name.<br />

In the know<br />

Although produced in many<br />

colours and materials, the Osier<br />

Kelly or “Picnic” made of wicker<br />

and first produced in 2011 is one<br />

of the most unusual.<br />

In the know<br />

The Constance is designed<br />

as a shoulder bag and was a<br />

favourite of Jackie Onassis.<br />

The Elan, a slightly longer and<br />

narrower style, was introduced<br />

in 2010.<br />

Highest price at auction<br />

US$89,000 for a Niloticus<br />

Crocodile 24 with palladium<br />

hardware (Christie’s 2016).<br />

The Birkin<br />

Born on an international flight in<br />

1983 when actress Jane Birkin<br />

told her neighbouring passenger –<br />

Hermès creative director Jean-Louis<br />

Dumas – that most leather bags<br />

were too structured for her. He<br />

designed something more “boho”<br />

on the back of an airsickness bag.<br />

The Birkin is modelled after Hermès’<br />

iconic Haut à Courroies bag.<br />

In the know<br />

The must-have Birkin is currently<br />

the “So Black” (pictured above),<br />

featuring delicate black PVD-coated<br />

hardware. Designed by Jean Paul<br />

Gaultier in 2010, examples are rare<br />

and highly sought after.<br />

The WEALTH report <strong>2020</strong><br />

With a growing number of economic headwinds buffeting the global economy and<br />

property markets, Knight Frank’s Head of Residential Research, Kate Everett-Allen,<br />

talks us through the trends that matter, identifying opportunities across countries,<br />

cities and sectors with a focus this year on wellness and wellbeing, in this, the 14th<br />

edition of our flagship report.<br />

The key findings<br />

Global economic growth slumped to a<br />

record low in 2019, while global uncertainty<br />

hit a record high. Despite this, the world’s<br />

UHNWI population grew by 6% last year -<br />

an additional 31,000 people with more than<br />

US$30m in wealth.<br />

In the face of continued volatility and<br />

uncertainty, our new Wealth Sizing Model<br />

confirms that the UHNWI population will<br />

rise by 27% over the next five years, a rate<br />

of 75 new UHNWIs every day. Asia will<br />

overtake Europe as the second biggest wealth<br />

hub, but North America still will dominate<br />

European cities rank highly<br />

in the new City Wellness Index<br />

with more UHNWIs than Asia and Europe<br />

combined.<br />

Within two decades, the average life<br />

expectancy in certain countries could rise to<br />

110 off the back of radical advances in medical<br />

technology. This will transform how wealthy<br />

individuals and families spend their time,<br />

money, and how and when it is passed on to<br />

the next generation.<br />

2019 was the year that ‘capitalism<br />

went cuddly’ with investors and companies<br />

increasingly putting purpose at the heart of<br />

decisions in the form of Environmental,<br />

Social and Governance criteria. As a result,<br />

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10<br />

Oslo Zurich Helsinki Vienna Madrid Stockholm Amsterdam Sydney Montreal Singapore<br />

funds managing US$31 trillion – a quarter<br />

of the global total – already apply some<br />

form of ESG screen to their investments.<br />

The shift in priorities and motivations,<br />

combined with political and economic<br />

challenges – including the global economic<br />

slowdown, trade wars and political tension –<br />

has led to almost 80% of UHNWI advisors<br />

intending to alter <strong>2020</strong> investment<br />

strategies.<br />

Private equity is the asset class attracting<br />

the most interest as investors can direct<br />

funds based on their own priorities. Global<br />

real estate will also benefit with 43% of<br />

advisors expecting increased allocations -<br />

particularly into sectors that could profit<br />

from the wellness trend and longevity.<br />

With the imminent prospect of the<br />

100-year+ life, there will be increased<br />

clamour for ‘cradle-to-grave’ real estate<br />

in <strong>2020</strong>. Some 60% of advisors note a<br />

growing interest for Purpose Built Student<br />

Accommodation, Private Rented Sector<br />

and Senior Living assets.<br />

A fifth of UHNWIs are planning a<br />

residential purchase in <strong>2020</strong> and they are<br />

increasingly considering wellness attributes<br />

such as access to green space, how a<br />

property’s design contributes to physical<br />

and mental wellbeing as well as sustainability.<br />

New York and London remain the<br />

dominant urban hubs for UHNWIs –<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

The increased diversification of<br />

investment strategies was reflected by<br />

our inclusion of collectable handbags in<br />

our Knight Frank <strong>Luxury</strong> Investment<br />

Index (KFLII) – one of which fetched<br />

US$258,000 at auction. However, for<br />

the first time the KFLII fell by 1% as<br />

growth stalled in several sectors including<br />

classic cars.<br />

Despite the growing interest in luxury<br />

assets, more wealth is being deployed to<br />

solve challenges spanning generations.<br />

Almost 70% of UHNWIs are increasing<br />

philanthropic activities and three quarters<br />

are becoming increasingly interested in<br />

climate change and conservation.<br />

New York regaining the title this year – yet<br />

London remains tops for diversity of investors,<br />

quality of education and global connectivity.<br />

With four in five UHNWIs dedicating<br />

more of their time and money to wellbeing,<br />

European cities are becoming more attractive<br />

– due to abundant green space and safety,<br />

among other factors – in our new City<br />

Wellbeing Index they occupy 7 of the top<br />

10 spots.<br />

Prime residential prices saw an improved<br />

growth rate in 2019 of 1.8%, on average,<br />

across the 100 locations measured in our<br />

Prime International Residential Index.<br />

Frankfurt and Lisbon topped the index both<br />

with 10% growth.<br />

In terms of prime property price growth<br />

for this year, Paris tops our forecast, with<br />

7%, due to strong economic fundamentals<br />

and infrastructure developments, Berlin and<br />

Miami follow with 5% growth.<br />

Like a fine work of priceless fashion, this exquisitely<br />

detailed villa stands out from serialised, off-the-peg<br />

properties to create a wonderful blend of modern<br />

Mediterranean style with a distinctive touch of Paris chic.<br />

By Michel Cruz/Photography: Charly Simon<br />

Mediterranean<br />

haute couture<br />

nter the property and you realise that<br />

Ethis is a home of detail and passion<br />

for style in which, for all its aesthetic<br />

appeal, form and function are well poised.<br />

In addition to this, the villa occupies an<br />

enviable location that is as panoramic as<br />

it is discreet and private. Automatic gates<br />

open to reveal a driveway that slopes gently<br />

down to a privileged position from which no<br />

neighbours are visible, just panoramic southeasterly<br />

views across a swathe of greenery<br />

down to the sea.<br />

The large deck seems to float over the<br />

landscape, with an infinity pool whose<br />

drop-away edge lines up with the horizon<br />

shimmering blue in the distance. Matt antislip<br />

marble provides a soft cream touch that<br />

blends with the villa’s fresh white tonality and<br />



Benahavís<br />

the blue-turquoise and white patterned sofas that form<br />

intimate lounging and relaxing areas. The entrance to<br />

the villa is paved with classic hand-cut Pedra Calçada<br />

stones and framed with Mediterranean trees, herbs<br />

and flowering plants.<br />

“I was inspired by the setting, the light and the<br />

views,” says the owner, a professional interior designer<br />

who not only styled the home’s interior but was also<br />

the creative force behind its architectural design and<br />

layout. “I wanted a villa that reflects this location,<br />

blends modern and Mediterranean elements, and<br />

has an easy symmetry in which interconnected living<br />

spaces create an integrated flow between intimate,<br />

cosy rooms.”<br />

Modern, Mediterranean and chic<br />

The large entrance door is modern, an example of<br />

sleek contemporary lines that work in harmony<br />

with classically inspired details such as slanted<br />

Mediterranean rooflines that slope down to meet<br />

full-length panoramic windows. The latter bring in<br />

the inspiring views as you enter the villa and the<br />

beautifully decorated living room, with fireplace and<br />

vaulted ceiling topping a nine-metre height.<br />


<strong>Highlights</strong><br />

Natural light flows in from tall windows that offer<br />

intriguing views of garden details tastefully lit in the<br />

evenings. The spacious kitchen features sleek, top-ofthe-range<br />

luxury combined with a cosy breakfast nook,<br />

a large dining table and an outdoor option, while on the<br />

opposite side of the property a large bedroom suite forms<br />

part of a subtle symmetry of layout and proportions. It<br />

shares decorative detailing with the upstairs bedrooms<br />

and expansive private suite.<br />

This takes the form of bright, spacious rooms with<br />

generous, latticed wardrobes that open up to elegant<br />

bathrooms whose cream-toned Carrara marble is a fine<br />

example of how a bespoke property of this kind deviates<br />

from the norm to produce a unique ambience that is at<br />

once refined and homely. The main suite, with his and<br />

hers dressing rooms and a ‘floating’ terrace, forms the<br />

pinnacle of private luxury.<br />

The family comes together in the entertainment areas on the lower<br />

floor, where natural light and Zen-styled greenery continue the sense of<br />

stylish warmth and comfort exuded by the home. Practical areas such as the<br />

laundry are discreetly integrated, with direct access to the kitchen, while<br />

the large garage and an area that can be transformed into a private spa or<br />

cinema, complete one of the most refined modern villas in the Los Flamingos<br />

area of <strong>Marbella</strong>.<br />

Engaging<br />

the senses


Golden Mile<br />

In an era defined so strongly by modern white<br />

‘cubist’ villas characterised by right-angled<br />

geometry and expansive glass surfaces, it can be<br />

truly refreshing to be surrounded by the more<br />

welcoming charm of an established, lived-in<br />

home. By Michel Cruz/Photography: Charly Simon<br />

ontemporary properties may photograph very well, but they can lack the<br />

soul and positive energy of a villa that basks in warmth and refinement,<br />

Chaving created its own private oasis. So, if you’re not into steel and<br />

glass, and prefer the ambience of a home that exudes homely sophistication<br />

as well as offering a myriad of cool, private spots in which to relax, socialise<br />

and enjoy fantastic views, then this comfortable villa just made for family life<br />

and stylish entertaining will impress.<br />

The ambience of a home is very important, especially in a villa, and it is this<br />

sense of refined wellbeing that captures your attention the minute you walk<br />

through the gate and enter the property, which combines classic Andalusian-<br />

Mediterranean country home details with very up<br />

to date comfort. The rich greenery of the mature<br />

garden and courtyard area envelop one in a space<br />

that is flanked by a double carport, double garage<br />

and also a second carport linked to the service<br />

entrance.<br />

The sophistication of the architectural design<br />

and layout is evident not just in the villa’s aesthetics,<br />

but also in spaces flow beautifully in a blend of form<br />

and function that is visible in the delightful kitchen,<br />


Golden Mile<br />

...“The lounge is a<br />

study in homely<br />

designer style...”<br />

which connects to a laundry, the main entrance hall and<br />

formal dining room. It is representative of a home that<br />

balances style, comfort and practicality with panache;<br />

step through the main entrance and it’s the elegant detail,<br />

fine quality materials and spacious flow of the rooms that<br />

catches your eye.<br />

The lounge is a study in homely designer style, exuding<br />

a welcoming feel that continues as you enter the covered<br />

terrace, with its dining and lounging areas endowed with<br />

wonderful sea views. This area links with an intimate lawn<br />

and flows down amid floral beauty to a stunning private pool<br />

in classic villa style, which is flanked by lawns, landscaped<br />

gardens and an alcove for relaxing. Nearby is an independent<br />

guesthouse, while a separate wing linked to the main house<br />

contains a further three bedroom suites with lots of personal<br />

character and detailing.<br />

of the suite apartments opening on to a rose garden. The top<br />

floor of the property is dominated by a large, independent<br />

Golden Mile<br />

Andalusian<br />


home<br />

Modern architecture and the evocative impact of Andalusian design have<br />

seldom come together as impressively as in this contemporary country villa<br />

set upon a wine estate near Ronda. By Michel Cruz/Photography: Charly Simon<br />


Golden Mile<br />

he landscape around Ronda is marked by wooded hills dressed in varied hues of green<br />

cork oak, pine groves and olive trees. Where the land evens out, vineyards, farmland<br />

and pastures add brighter shades, to which the spring showers add a profusion of<br />

Twild flowers in March and April. This is a noble land on the cusp of the elegant historic country<br />

town of Ronda, with its many monuments and palaces, not far from <strong>Marbella</strong> and its<br />

bustling shoreline.<br />


Inland<br />

This stunning modern country property finds itself within the<br />

embrace of a green carpet of soft grass, fragrant rust-brown soil and cork<br />

oak and olive trees that add welcome shade in the summer months. The<br />

setting offers spectacular country, mountain and sea views, with imperial<br />

eagles soaring against clear blue skies overhead as you take in the refined<br />

natural ambience of the terrace areas or relax by the panoramic pool<br />

deck.<br />

The modern hacienda style property is set within the<br />

200-hectare La Melonera wine estate near Ronda, which produces<br />

high quality wines that consistently score high reviews. It produces<br />

an annual production of 500 privately labelled bottles from the<br />

villa’s own vineyards that is tailored to the owner’s taste – definitely<br />

a unique feature for a modern luxury villa near <strong>Marbella</strong> and the<br />

Costa del Sol.<br />

An architectural gem in wine country<br />

Designed by noted <strong>Marbella</strong> architect, Marcos Sainz, this is an<br />

outstanding property that blends the traditional textural plaster finish<br />

of Andalucía, which catches the sunlight so evocatively, with a modern<br />

geometry. Natural Mediterranean tiles and sloped rooflines merge with<br />


Inland<br />

industrial iron and oxidised steel details in a home that captures the<br />

spirit of its environment while also being thoroughly modern and<br />

stylish.<br />

This is evident the moment you approach the entrance of this<br />

spacious four-bedroom villa, whose many engaging details and<br />

spaces blend into an architectural harmony of light, shades and<br />

forms. A home without equal in these parts, it brings together the<br />

best of country living and modern sophistication, with comfortable,<br />

stylish open-plan spaces, designer furnishings with a nod to rustic<br />

“ The setting offers spectacular<br />

country, mountain and<br />

sea views, with imperial<br />

eagles soaring against<br />

clear blue skies ... ”<br />

robustness, state-of-the-art amenities and a kitchen that matches<br />

the best anywhere.<br />

The bedroom suites are warm and comfortable, welcoming<br />

you in with a melange of contemporary luxury and the inviting<br />

presence of natural materials and textures. The same is true of the<br />

bathrooms, which bring in imposing views of nature while evoking<br />

an Andalusian style touched by Ibiza-Mallorca inspiration.<br />

Complete with swimming pool, sauna and water features, this is<br />

without doubt one of the most interesting properties on the greater<br />

Costa del Sol region – ideal for people who love nature and style.<br />
