A Message<br />

From <strong>The</strong> Editor<br />

Dear Valued Readers,<br />

We truly hope that this year is starting off well and that you are ready to crush it as the pandemic slows down<br />

globally.<br />

When people label something as ‘luxurious,’ we automatically equate it as ‘too expensive.’ That may be true,<br />

however, luxury itself is not defined by ‘expense’ alone. <strong>The</strong>re are so many more elements that truly and correctly<br />

identify an item as luxury and we will be discussing more of this soon through an online platform and a<br />

series of webinars at <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> Academy which will be launching this month.<br />

Despite the global difficulties that the current situation has presented to the luxury industry and continues doing<br />

so, Bugatti has successfully delivered more vehicles in the first quarter of 2021 more than ever before in the<br />

first 3 months of any year. Hermès also saw luxury demand recover from the ‘pandemic freeze’ and returning to<br />

growth, while LVMH shares are also reaching a record recently after the unexpected Louis Vuitton rebound in<br />

fashion and leather sales.<br />

<strong>The</strong>refore, no matter what happens, people will still spend on luxury goods and I believe that there will be a<br />

higher growth since people are now more excited to dress up again and enjoy the luxuries of life - from travel,<br />

cars, jewelry, and all different industries, more than ever. I always say we only live once!<br />

Please enjoy our latest edition as we have featured the highlights of some of the exclusive events that our global<br />

offices and official members have hosted.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Fares Ghattas<br />

Bentley Motors has introduced<br />

a new flagship version<br />

of the ultimate, open-top<br />

Grand Tourer – the Continental<br />

GT Speed Convertible. <strong>The</strong> performance-orientated<br />

Speed model is<br />

the most powerful, driver-focused<br />

interpretation of the benchmark<br />

convertible Grand Tourer.<br />

<strong>The</strong> third generation Continental<br />

GT Speed Convertible features an<br />

enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned<br />

6.0-litre W12 TSI engine,<br />

delivering an outstanding and increased<br />

659 PS (650 bhp), 0-60<br />

mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in<br />

3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 208<br />

mph (335 km/h). <strong>The</strong> new open-air<br />

Grand Tourer joins its coupe sibling<br />

– the Continental GT Speed,<br />

unveiled last month – at the pinnacle<br />

of the Continental family<br />

Designed, handcrafted and engineered<br />

in Bentley’s carbon neutral<br />

luxury automotive factory, the new<br />

GT Speed Convertible offers enhanced<br />

chassis technology, including<br />

All-Wheel Steering, an electronic<br />

rear differential and the option of<br />

carbon ceramic brakes. This helps<br />

deliver superior vehicle agility and<br />

confidence without impacting on<br />

the Continental GT Convertible’s<br />

acclaimed ride comfort.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Continental GT Speed Convertible<br />

is fitted with a tailored,<br />

Need for<br />

Speed<br />

to an open-top Grand Tourer at the<br />

touch of a button.<br />

Distinguishing this Grand Tourer<br />

as a pinnacle performance model,<br />

the Continental GT Speed Convertible<br />

offers unique exterior and<br />

interior detailing, including Speed<br />

sport sills, dark tint grilles and<br />

Speed badging. Customers can also<br />

choose from three finishes to the<br />

unique 22” forged Speed wheels.<br />

Inside a luxuriously-appointed cabin,<br />

the new Continental GT Convertible<br />

model includes Speed badging<br />

on the passenger fascia, an Alcantara<br />

steering wheel and a unique colour<br />

split trim in hide and Alcantara.<br />

Chris Craft, Member of the Board<br />

for Sales and Marketing at Bentley<br />

Motors, comments:<br />

“<strong>The</strong> new Speed is the most driver-focused<br />

Continental GT Convertible<br />

available and unique in its<br />

ability to offer extremely refined,<br />

all-season open-top Grand Touring<br />

with the added edge of astonishing<br />

performance and dynamism.<br />

“Combined with exquisite, handcrafted<br />

interior details, the Continental<br />

GT Speed Convertible exemplifies<br />

all Bentley knows about<br />

creating the world’s most stylish<br />

and elegant cars for roof-down<br />

motoring.”<br />

New Technologically -<br />

Advanced Chassis<br />

Cutting-edge chassis technology<br />

gives the third generation GT Speed<br />

Convertible unrivalled control and<br />

accuracy, and inspires confidence<br />

even further.<br />

Maintaining Bentley’s philosophy<br />

of the vehicle feeling progressive<br />

and secure, yet still be dynamic,<br />

this approach rewards drivers of all<br />

abilities. To achieve this philosophy<br />

in BENTLEY and COMFORT mode,<br />

overall grip is balanced between<br />

the front and rear wheels, in SPORT<br />

this mode has been calibrated with<br />

a more rear-biased torque–split in<br />

all driving scenarios.<br />

Improved cornering dynamics and<br />

the extra grip provided by the new<br />

systems allows the driver to exit<br />

any corner with an increased level<br />

of precision and confidence. In<br />

turn, the vehicle is able to extract<br />

the maximum performance from<br />

the available traction to deliver<br />

stunning acceleration and composure<br />

from the apex. In SPORT<br />

mode, the traction management<br />

system sends a greater proportion<br />

of power to the rear axle to allow<br />

for even greater on-throttle control<br />

of cornering line.<br />

Working alongside these systems are<br />

the key chassis technologies that deliver<br />

body control and ride comfort<br />

with no compromise to one another<br />

– namely Bentley’s three-chamber<br />

active air suspension with adaptive<br />

damping, and Bentley Dynamic Ride<br />

– the 48V active anti-roll control system<br />

that Bentley pioneered on the<br />

Bentayga and third-generation Continental<br />

GT.<br />

This innovative system features<br />

powerful electric motors within<br />

each anti-roll bar to resist body<br />

roll. In their firmest setting, the<br />

motors can deliver 1300 Nm in 0.3<br />

secs to counteract cornering forces<br />

and keep the body level.<br />

A Carbon Ceramic Brake system<br />

has also been introduced as an<br />

option on the Speed. Using the<br />

high-performance material reduces<br />

the brake force required for<br />

high-speed deceleration and lowers<br />

the risk of brake fade.<br />

Featuring Active All-Wheel drive,<br />

the traction control and torque distribution<br />

has been recalibrated in all<br />

driver modes to provide a noticeable<br />

character shift relative to the standard<br />

Continental GT convertible.<br />

THE NEW EQB<br />

ELECTROMOBILITY IN A FAMILY PACKAGE<br />

All-electric compact SUV<br />

with up to seven seats.<br />

Whether a large nuclear family or<br />

a small extended family: as a seven-seater,<br />

the new EQB offers space<br />

for many family configurations and<br />

a wide variety of transport needs.<br />

This gives it an exceptional position<br />

not only in the compact segment,<br />

but especially among electric cars.<br />

<strong>The</strong> two seats in the third row can<br />

be used by people up to 1.65 metres<br />

tall, and child seats can also be fitted<br />

there. <strong>The</strong> new EQB will make<br />

its debut at Auto Shanghai 2021.<br />

Following the EQA, it is the second<br />

fully electric compact car from<br />

Mercedes-EQ. <strong>The</strong> powerful<br />

and efficient electric drive,<br />

clever recuperation and predictive<br />

Navigation with Electric<br />

Intelligence are just some<br />

of the features that link it to<br />

the EQA. <strong>The</strong> market launch<br />

in China is scheduled for this<br />

year. After Europe, the international<br />

version of the EQB,<br />

produced in Kecskemét,<br />

Hungary, will be launched at<br />

the end of the year, followed<br />

by the US market launch in<br />

2022.<br />

Electro design aesthetics<br />

with corners and edges.<br />

<strong>The</strong> EQB interprets Mercedes-EQ’s<br />

Progressive <strong>Luxury</strong> in an edgy and<br />

particularly characterful way. It<br />

features the typical Mercedes-EQ<br />

black panel grille with central star.<br />

A further distinctive design feature<br />

of the all-electric world of Mercedes-EQ<br />

vehicles is the continuous<br />

light strip at front and rear. A<br />

horizontal fibre-optic strip connects<br />

the daytime running lights of<br />

12<br />

the full-LED headlamps, ensuring a<br />

high level of recognisability both in<br />

daylight and at night. <strong>The</strong> inside of<br />

the headlamps is finished to a high<br />

level of quality, detail and precision.<br />

Blue colour highlights within<br />

the headlamp reinforce the signature<br />

Mercedes-EQ appearance.<br />

<strong>The</strong> function-oriented greenhouse<br />

with upright windscreen makes the<br />

comfortable interior possible. Circumferential<br />

and protective cladding<br />

elements structure the overall<br />

proportion. <strong>The</strong> muscular and sensuously<br />

modelled vehicle shoulder<br />

dominates the side view, which<br />

is further enhanced by the rise of<br />

the beltline. Outwardly positioned<br />

wheels give the EQB a powerful<br />

character and confident stance on<br />

the road. Exclusive to this model are<br />

light-alloy wheels in a bi- or tri-colour<br />

design, up to 20 inches in size,<br />

in some cases with rosé gold-coloured<br />

or blue decorative trim.<br />

Efficient driving with Electric<br />

Intelligence.<br />

ECO Assist offers a recuperation<br />

process optimised to the particular<br />

situation. It incorporates navigation<br />

data, traffic sign recognition<br />

and information from the vehicle<br />

sensors into its efficiency strategy.<br />

Anticipatory driving saves power,<br />

thereby extending the range.<br />

<strong>The</strong> standard Navigation with Electric<br />

Intelligence also contributes to<br />

the effortless handling of the EQB<br />

in everyday life. It calculates the<br />

fastest route to the destination,<br />

including any necessary charging<br />

stops. On the basis of continual<br />

range simulations, the system<br />

makes allowance for any necessary<br />

charging stops as well as for numerous<br />

other factors, such as the<br />

topography and the weather.<br />

It is also able to react dynamically<br />

to changes, for instance<br />

in the traffic situation<br />

or personal driving style. In<br />

addition, the Navigation with<br />

Electric Intelligence ensures<br />

that the high-voltage battery<br />

is brought to an optimal<br />

charging temperature before<br />

a planned charging stop, if<br />

required.<br />

Sophisticated charging<br />

technology.<br />

At home or at public charging<br />

stations, the EQB can be conveniently<br />

charged at up to 11 kW with<br />

alternating current (AC) using the<br />

onboard charger. <strong>The</strong> charging time<br />

required for a full charge depends<br />

on the available infrastructure and<br />

the country-specific vehicle equipment.<br />

Charging at a Mercedes-Benz<br />

Wallbox is considerably faster than<br />

at a household socket.<br />

And it is of course even faster at<br />

direct current (DC) fast-charging


stations. Depending on the SoC<br />

(State of Charge) and the temperature<br />

of the high-voltage battery,<br />

the EQB charges at a corresponding<br />

charging station with a maximum<br />

power of up to 100 kW. <strong>The</strong><br />

charging time is then just over 30<br />

minutes from 10-80 percent SoC.<br />

For AC and DC charging, the EQB<br />

is equipped as standard in Europe<br />

and the USA with a CCS (Combined<br />

Charging Systems) connector in the<br />

right-hand side panel. In China, a<br />

country-specific charging solution<br />

with sockets on the right and left in<br />

the side wall is used, and charging<br />

times may also vary compared with<br />

the European version.<br />

Mercedes me Charge.<br />

Via Mercedes me Charge, EQB<br />

drivers will be able to use what is<br />

currently the largest charging network<br />

in the world: this currently<br />

comprises more than 500,000 AC<br />

and DC charging stations across<br />

31 countries. Mercedes me Charge<br />

allows Mercedes-EQ customers<br />

convenient use of the charging stations<br />

of various providers, while<br />

they also benefit from an integrated<br />

payment function with simple<br />

billing processes.<br />

By means of high-quality certificates<br />

of origin, Mercedes-Benz<br />

guarantees that energy from renewable<br />

energy sources is fed into the<br />

grid for charging current sourced<br />

via Mercedes me Charge. With Mercedes<br />

me Charge, customers can<br />

charge at more than 200,000 public<br />

charging stations across Europe,<br />

where Mercedes-Benz ensures<br />

subsequent compensation through<br />

green electricity.<br />

Intelligent driving assistance<br />

systems.<br />

<strong>The</strong> EQB features intelligent driving<br />

assistance systems with cooperative<br />

support for the driver. Active Lane<br />

Keeping Assist and Active Brake Assist<br />

are fitted as standard. In many<br />

critical situations, the latter has the<br />

ability to prevent a collision or reduce<br />

its severity with autonomous<br />

braking. <strong>The</strong> system is also able to<br />

brake for stationary vehicles and<br />

crossing pedestrians at typical city<br />

speeds. <strong>The</strong> enhanced functions of<br />

the Driving Assistance Package include,<br />

for example, the turning manoeuvre<br />

function, the emergency<br />

corridor function, the exit warning<br />

function alerting the driver to approaching<br />

cyclists or vehicles, and<br />

a warning when pedestrians are detected<br />

near zebra crossings.<br />

Exceptional crash safety.<br />

<strong>The</strong> EQB is also a true Mercedes-Benz<br />

when it comes to passive<br />

safety. Building on the robust<br />

bodyshell structure of the GLB, the<br />

body of the EQB was adapted to the<br />

special requirements of an electric<br />

car. <strong>The</strong> battery sits within a frame<br />

made out of extruded sections.<br />

This takes on a structural function<br />

which until now was maintained by<br />

the cross members in the underfloor.<br />

A battery guard in the front<br />

area of the battery is able to prevent<br />

the energy storage unit from<br />

being pierced by foreign objects.<br />

Of course, the EQB had to pass the<br />

brand’s usual extensive crash test<br />

programme. Stringent requirements<br />

for the battery and all components<br />

carrying electrical current<br />

also apply.<br />

With acceleration<br />

figures now verified,<br />

the all-new<br />

High-Performance Hybrid<br />

powertrain in the McLaren<br />

Artura sets new benchmarks<br />

for performance, building<br />

on the levels of high-performance<br />

hybrid excellence set<br />

by the pioneering McLaren<br />

P1TM – the world’s first<br />

hybrid hypercar – and the<br />

Speedtail Hyper-GT.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Artura’s advanced petrol-electric<br />

powertrain delivers<br />

an unrivalled combination<br />

of throttle-response,<br />

acceleration and electric-only,<br />

zero-emissions<br />

capability. It has been engineered<br />

to ensure the all-new<br />

McLaren supercar excels<br />

across the full spectrum of<br />

driving experiences, from<br />

everyday urban journeys to<br />

track day sessions.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> McLaren Artura’s allnew,<br />

super-lightweight electrified<br />

powertrain is at the<br />

cutting-edge of high-performance-hybrid<br />

technology,<br />

engineered to offer all of the<br />

advantages of internal combustion<br />

and electric power<br />

in one package and establish<br />

new benchmarks for combined<br />

performance and efficiency<br />

in the supercar class.<br />

<strong>The</strong> ‘clean-sheet’ design of<br />

the Artura has allowed us to<br />

focus on how to make this<br />

power accessible to the driver<br />

and deliver the levels of<br />

engagement expected from<br />

a McLaren.”<br />

Geoff Grose, Chief Engineer,<br />

McLaren Automotive<br />

Minimising weight was key<br />

to the design of the all-new<br />

powertrain. This is hugely<br />

important in an electrified<br />

supercar, as well as being<br />

absolutely aligned with<br />

McLaren’s philosophy of<br />

super-lightweight engineering<br />

that is fundamental<br />

to the performance,<br />

14


Need for<br />

Speed<br />

agility and driver engagement inherent in every<br />

McLaren.<br />

Breaking with the V8 convention established with the<br />

first supercar from McLaren Automotive, the 12C, at<br />

the heart of the Artura is an all-new, 3.0-litre V6 internal<br />

combustion engine. <strong>The</strong> 120-degree, twin-turbocharged<br />

M630 unit not only delivers unrivalled performance,<br />

it also allows the most compact packaging<br />

possible. A 180-degree angle was considered but dismissed<br />

because it would raise the height of the crankshaft<br />

and therefore the centre of gravity of the car.<br />

<strong>The</strong> wide angle of the V6 cylinders allows the turbochargers<br />

to sit within the banks in a ‘hot vee’ configuration,<br />

which also benefits efficiency as they sit within<br />

a straighter - and therefore less restrictive – exhaust<br />

layout. Generating 585PS and 585Nm of torque, the<br />

all-new V6 engine is 190mm shorter and 220mm narrower<br />

than McLaren’s twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 – and<br />

also 50kg lighter.<br />

While the configuration of the all-new engine is key<br />

to the Artura’s powertrain packaging, it is the innovative<br />

technology within that provides the biggest gains<br />

in lightweighting and performance. <strong>The</strong> cylinder head<br />

and block utilise 3D printed cores, allowing uncompromised<br />

precision cooling, including a micro-compact<br />

2mm cooling passage between the cylinders. <strong>The</strong><br />

block has directly coated parent bores rather than<br />

separate coated liners, into which fuel is injected at<br />

350bar pressure.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Artura’s V6 engine is designed not just for compact<br />

packaging and efficiency, but also to increase driver<br />

engagement. Shared crank pins enable a very short<br />

and stiff crankshaft that allows the M630 to redline<br />

at a thrilling 8500rpm. It’s also a very refined engine,<br />

designed with the chain drive at the rear and with ancillary<br />

noises reduced so that the occupants only hear<br />

the V6’s distinctive intake and exhaust note, routed via<br />

Gasoline Particulate Filters to reduce emissions†.<br />

<strong>The</strong> V6 engine powers the rear wheels via an all-new<br />

eight-speed seamless shift transmission that has also<br />

been design for optimised packaging. <strong>The</strong> length of<br />

the gear cluster has been reduced by 40mm, helped<br />

by use of a nested clutch rather than a parallel unit<br />

and also the removal of a reverse gear, this function<br />

now achieved by the Artura’s E-motor spinning in the<br />

opposite direction. <strong>The</strong> ultra-compact motor is fully<br />

integrated within the transmission bell-housing, delivering<br />

torque in-fill and linear acceleration via an<br />

E-differential to the rear wheels.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Axial Flux design of the E-motor is another<br />

Artura benchmark. It is similar in size to a<br />

McLaren brake disc and at just 15.4kg it is only<br />

a little heavier than a conventional iron rotor<br />

Need for<br />

Speed<br />

Providing the electric-only capability is a 7.4kWh<br />

Five-module Lithium Ion energy dense battery pack.<br />

Fully-integrated into the Artura’s McLaren Lightweight<br />

Architecture (MCLA) chassis, the battery pack<br />

is positioned low-down in the car behind the driver,<br />

incorporated into the floor and protected on three<br />

sides by the main carbon fibre structure and from behind<br />

by the engine. This positioning also helps to optimise<br />

both centre of gravity and the polar moment of<br />

inertia, benefitting dynamic agility.<br />

<strong>The</strong> hybrid battery sits on a cooling manifold, which is<br />

shared with the new electric heating, ventilation and<br />

air conditioning system also used to control air temperature<br />

in the cabin. Incorporating technology first<br />

developed for the McLaren Speedtail, the batteries are<br />

thermally controlled using dielectric oil – a technology<br />

also used to keep the E-motor at operating temperatures<br />

that deliver the highest level of performance.<br />

True to the Artura engineers’ determination to optimise<br />

packaging and weight, the battery management<br />

unit sits alongside the modules, with the power distribution<br />

unit (PDU) integrated into the battery. An integrated<br />

Power Unit (IPU) acts as a DC/DC converter<br />

for the vehicle’s 12v system, further reducing weight<br />

by removing the need for a separate alternator and<br />

on-board battery-charger.<br />

Taking just 2.5 hours to charge from zero to 80% using<br />

an EVSE socket, the battery is carefully managed<br />

so that it never truly runs out of power; there is always<br />

something in reserve for reversing or starting the<br />

engine, even when parked for extended periods. This<br />

management process also ensures that the battery<br />

remains in peak condition and accordingly the unit is<br />

warranted for 6 years or 75,000km.<br />

An Artura driver can adjust how the electric motor is<br />

deployed to prioritise range or power, or choose to<br />

shut off the internal combustion engine for silent running.<br />

Energy harvesting is achieved purely from the<br />

combustion engine in order to maintain brake pedal<br />

feel, yet the battery can be charged from low to 80%<br />

full within minutes under normal driving conditions.<br />

This ensures that the Artura is always ready to switch<br />

to electric-only mode, an option that adds discretion<br />

and enhanced economy to the driving experience, as<br />

well as reduced CO2 emissions at just 129 g/km*.<br />

Additionally, the Artura’s High-Performance Hybrid<br />

powertrain contributes to significant ownership<br />

benefits above and beyond the performance and<br />

driving engagement it delivers: a comprehensive<br />

5-year vehicle and 6-year hybrid battery warranty<br />

are standard for Artura customers, as is a 3-year<br />

service plan.<br />

TIEVE TARA: THE SPARKLING JEWEL<br />

IN MOUNT MACEDON’S CROWN<br />

Considered a property of great significance in<br />

the heart of Mount Macedon’s Golden Mile yet<br />

only 50 minutes from the Melbourne CBD and<br />

40 minutes from Melbourne’s <strong>International</strong> Airport,<br />

this private oasis set on more than six acres (2.4 ha<br />

approx.) of lush ornamental gardens is on the market<br />

for the first time in 25 years.<br />

Presenting a once-in-a-generation opportunity to<br />

secure one of the great hillside estates known for its<br />

world-class gardens, Tieve Tara, whose name comes<br />

from the Celtic meaning “side of the hill”, has evolved<br />

from its 19th-century origins into the illustrious property<br />

that it is today.<br />

Privately located among spectacular gardens, its luxurious,<br />

architect-designed two-storey brick and stone<br />

main residence offers mountain vistas and stunning<br />

outlooks from every room.<br />

Perfectly proportioned spacious interiors include<br />

multiple living areas, two bedrooms with ensuites,<br />

and an upstairs living area with a home office capturing<br />

magnificent treetop and garden vistas. In short,<br />

a perfect “work from home” environment. Featuring<br />

BRANDED<br />

RESIDENCES – THE<br />

FUTURE OF<br />

LUXURY LIVING?<br />

26


Destination<br />

Unlocked<br />

<strong>The</strong>y originated because leading hotel brands<br />

were looking to offer their high-net-worth<br />

(HNW) clients the privacy of having a private residence<br />

with the services and convenience of a<br />

hotel.<br />

Branded residences are becoming ever<br />

more popular. But what are they, how did<br />

they originate – and what will they be like<br />

in the years to come? In this article we look at<br />

all the key aspects of this style of luxury living.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first branded residence was created in a<br />

New York hotel in the 1920s and in recent years<br />

the number of hotel-based branded residences<br />

has grown apace. But so too have other types<br />

of branded residence. In this article, we’ll look<br />

at what’s behind this phenomenon, the benefits<br />

these properties can bring, and particular considerations<br />

that go into creating them, especially<br />

in the light of the current pandemic.<br />

What are branded residences?<br />

Today, branded residences generally refer to<br />

residential properties rather than hotels, allowing<br />

investors to buy into the luxury and status<br />

associated with a particular brand. <strong>The</strong>y are essentially<br />

partnerships between the brand and a<br />

developer, working closely in conjunction with a<br />

designer – as, for example, with our work with<br />

Four Seasons on their branded residences in<br />

Kazakhstan.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se residences were created within hotels and<br />

were also useful for quick recouping of some<br />

of the substantial investment involved in hotel<br />

building.<br />

While many of these properties are still set<br />

within hotels, branded residences have now<br />

also developed into stand-alone developments.<br />

Many are still run by hotel groups. However,<br />

non-hospitality brands such as Armani, Baccarat<br />

and Porsche have also branched out into<br />

creating branded residences in order to capitalise<br />

on the strength of their brand and to<br />

forge a deeper connection with their audience.<br />

So, what explains this phenomenon?<br />

<strong>The</strong> benefits of branded residences<br />

<strong>The</strong> main reason for the growth of branded residences<br />

is that the developer, the brand and the<br />

owner or occupier all stand to gain in multiple<br />

ways.<br />

A developer can charge a premium price for a<br />

branded residence. <strong>The</strong> visible brand and its associated<br />

high status also serves to increase trust<br />

in the developer. In some instances, they can<br />

access the existing customer base of the brand<br />

in a way they would otherwise have been unable<br />

to do.<br />

27


As for the brand owners, they can generate income<br />

from management fees and short-term sales. <strong>The</strong><br />

brand can also generate wider and deeper customer<br />

loyalty by diversifying in this way.<br />

Those who buy or rent the residences love the level<br />

of luxury and convenience they bring. Thanks to high<br />

levels of servicing, they also gain from having almost<br />

everything they may require under one roof. Owners<br />

can also benefit from a no-hassle turnkey service,<br />

whereby they can just move in.<br />

<strong>The</strong> brand association often appeals to HNW individuals,<br />

who see them as trophy homes. <strong>The</strong>y also appreciate<br />

the increased levels of security that are commonly<br />

associated with branded residences, and the fact that<br />

everything is managed on their behalf.<br />

serviced residence, everything is always there ready<br />

for you, resulting in lower costs and easier logistics.<br />

Must-haves when designing branded<br />

residences<br />

Maintenance, management and staffing aren’t the only<br />

issues when it comes to living space for HNWs. Rive<br />

Gauche has been designing their homes for years and<br />

we know how to match both individual expectations<br />

and wider trends.<br />

As well as reflecting the aesthetic , values and ethos of<br />

the brand, we create a sense of place by making sure<br />

that the design is representative of the locality. We engage<br />

local artists and craftsmen, as well as reflect regional<br />

architectural styles and materials throughout.<br />

Global trends in branded residences<br />

Significant numbers of these HNW individuals can now<br />

be found in most of the world’s major cities, but some<br />

locations are becoming particularly significant.<br />

For example, while American cities such as Miami and<br />

Los Angeles are seeing more branded residences, the<br />

real growth is coming in Asia. In particular, the UAE<br />

and wider Middle East, plus countries such as Thailand<br />

and Vietnam, are witnessing big increases. Dubai is expected<br />

to become world capital of branded residences,<br />

overtaking New York, with Phuket also becoming a<br />

major destination.<br />

That said, wherever in the world one is or plans to be,<br />

Covid-19 has heralded major changes, with more set to<br />

come. <strong>The</strong> trend towards working from home has accelerated<br />

and many HNW individuals can now do business<br />

from almost anywhere in the world. All the same,<br />

most will need to travel at some point for work and will<br />

wish to for leisure; once travel restrictions are lifted,<br />

owners will rarely live full-time in one place. Serviced<br />

residences are well-placed to meet this new reality.<br />

Previously, you had to worry about ongoing maintenance<br />

and management. You might also have sent your<br />

staff to your residence overseas a week in advance<br />

to prepare the property for your arrival. But with a<br />

28


Destination<br />

Unlocked<br />

Any branded property should also be designed<br />

with service comparable to a luxury hotel in mind.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re would therefore normally be a separate entrance<br />

for services. This would be linked with a utility<br />

area and/or serviced kitchen and staff quarters,<br />

all kept away from the main part of the residence.<br />

Maintenance or emergency visits would also be kept<br />

apart so as not to disturb the occupants.<br />

<strong>The</strong> audio-visual and smart home system should be<br />

state of the art, not just to control what’s within the<br />

residence but to connect with services such as concierge.<br />

It should naturally be operable remotely as<br />

well. Most importantly, security should not be an afterthought<br />

but fully integrated into the overall design.<br />

Moving into a new COVID - influenced<br />

world<br />

Other design trends have been introduced or intensified<br />

in the face of the COVID pandemic. For example,<br />

the adoption of advanced technology for filtering and<br />

treating ambient air. This refreshes the room more often<br />

and filters out germs and pollutants. Technologies<br />

to reduce unnecessary physical contact points are also<br />

more prevalent, including voice recognition, contactless<br />

passes and keys in communal areas.<br />

inside and outside of their living spaces can promote<br />

wellbeing. Spa bathrooms are now commonplace, as<br />

are gyms in the highest-end residences.<br />

All aspects of living are now embraced. That includes<br />

nursery and childcare facilities, both within the residence<br />

and in a safe and secure part of the wider development.<br />

Dedicated personal offices are also the<br />

norm within branded residences, moving far beyond<br />

the days of just having a desk in the corner. And whatever<br />

is being built and wherever it may be, sustainability<br />

is now at its heart, reflecting a genuine desire<br />

to have positive impact on the environment and the<br />

local community. Refreshingly, developers, clients and<br />

brands are generally of one mind on this.<br />

In a wider sense, the trend towards health and wellbeing<br />

has accelerated in the face of the pandemic.<br />

five eaux de parfums and five magnifying<br />

essences, Bvlgari Allegra offers myriad<br />

combinations to create a uniquely<br />

personal scent. From the composition<br />

to the bottles inspired by colored gems,<br />

this fragrance collection is both joyful<br />

and precious.<br />

“All roads lead to Rome, all magnificent<br />

ingredients lead to Rome, and all<br />

fragrances lead to Rome,” says Jacques<br />

Cavallier about his creations for Bvlgari.<br />

Inspired by the history and lifestyle of<br />

Italy, the master perfumer put his passion<br />

and art into crafting the five Bvlgari<br />

Allegra eaux de parfums and five Magnifying<br />

essences. <strong>The</strong> multiple combinations<br />

are the fruit of superb creativity.<br />

For the fragrances, the citrus notes of<br />

Riva Solare evoke an endless Italian<br />

Riviera holiday, while the roses of Fiori<br />

d’Amore are like kisses in the eternal<br />

city. <strong>The</strong> gourmand amaretti and orange<br />

blossom in Dolce Estasi are inspired by<br />

the attachment to family and childhood<br />

memories. <strong>The</strong> cocktail of fruity notes<br />

in Rock’n’Rome echoes a spritz aperitivo<br />

shared at sunset. And the chypre accord<br />

of Fantasia Veneta with patchouli, peach<br />

and vanilla is an invitation to extravagant<br />

Venice masked balls.<br />

<strong>The</strong> glass bottles are inspired by the<br />

sculptured elegance of Roman columns<br />

and the colors of precious gems, like the<br />

ruby red and purple amethyst of Fantasia<br />

Veneta. Each of the fragrances can<br />

be combined with an essence to create<br />

a truly personal scent. <strong>The</strong> five Magnifying<br />

essences have white bottles, symbolizing<br />

the purity of the ingredients:<br />

musk, bergamot, rose, patchouli and vanilla.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se natural gems echo Bvlgari’s<br />

celebrated jewelry expertise. <strong>The</strong> Roman<br />

Maison pays the same meticulous<br />

attention to the gems and plants it uses,<br />

and to the planet. <strong>The</strong> Bvlgari Allegra<br />

collection is made entirely in Europe<br />

and protected by packaging that uses<br />

recycled materials. <strong>The</strong> glass bottles are<br />

designed to facilitate recycling.<br />

Bvlgari chose artist and model Solange<br />

Smith to embody the different facets<br />

of the new fragrance collection. From a<br />

dip in the Mediterranean in Capri to a<br />

THE NEW FRAGRANCE:<br />

BRIONI EAU DE PARFUM<br />

Brioni Eau de Parfum is<br />

the ultimate signature<br />

of effortless Roman<br />

chic accompanied by an<br />

irresistible temptation. It<br />

is the ideal complement to<br />

Brioni’s sartorial universe,<br />

the last, invisible, touch to<br />

the perfect outfit.<br />

A unique formula<br />

Created in collaboration<br />

with the renowned Master<br />

Perfumer Michel Almairac,<br />

the Brioni scent is a perfectly<br />

tailored formula. Accurately<br />

cut from superior<br />

ingredients, both natural<br />

and man-made, the fragrance<br />

is well-balanced and<br />

effortless.<br />

Infused with a sense of quiet<br />

confidence and understated<br />

elegance, the perfect<br />

finishing touch created<br />

with a few ingredients only,<br />

championing ease as the<br />

ultimate sophistication.<br />

An elegantly fresh opening<br />

by a modern ozonic accent –<br />

cool pink peppercorn and<br />

crisp green apple.<br />

<strong>The</strong> gentle warm heart carries<br />

a soft powdery violet<br />

that contrasts with the silky<br />

warmth of ambroxan.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sophisticated drydown<br />

bares the clean scent<br />

of naturally grown cedarwood<br />

infused by smooth<br />

tonka bean and cashmere-soft<br />

musk.<br />

<strong>The</strong> main ingredients, cedarwood,<br />

and hand-picked<br />

peppercorn are both sustainably<br />

sourced.<br />

“Our new fragrance, like<br />

all things Brioni, perfectly<br />

balances between sophistication<br />

and charisma. A per-<br />

fume that does not shout yet<br />

envelops the wearer with an<br />

irresistible presence, a com-<br />

fortable caress, and magical<br />

charm.”<br />

Norbert Stumpel,<br />

Brioni Design Director<br />

MADE IN NEW ZEALAND — INNOVATION STORY<br />

Waking up<br />

to sleep<br />

Hyoumankind Founder,<br />

Steph Wyborn<br />

It’s rarely easy to find good restorative<br />

sleep in the 21st Century, yet it’s so<br />

integral to our wellbeing and energy.<br />

Steph Wyborn, the entrepreneurial<br />

founder of Hyoumankind Pillows,<br />

is on a mission to help people harness<br />

the power of their sleep.<br />

Steph was struggling to get a restorative<br />

night’s sleep. Determined to find<br />

answers, she studied the science of<br />

sleep, and its impact on physiology,<br />

beauty and wellbeing.<br />

With plenty of scientific evidence<br />

to support the power of sleep – but few<br />

specialised pillow solutions – Steph<br />

knew she would need to design her<br />

own. Ergonomic design and aesthetics<br />

were paramount, as was material<br />

selection – a high-grade, advanced<br />

memory foam for exceptional support<br />

and comfort.<br />

<strong>The</strong> result of almost 10 years of<br />

R&D, the Hyoumankind range is<br />

now available. A commitment to<br />

manufacture in New Zealand means<br />

quality control meets Steph’s exacting<br />

principles. It’s these standards that<br />

see Hyoumankind pillows used and<br />

loved by elite sportspeople, aesthetic<br />

specialists, physical therapists and<br />

people who are embracing the luxury<br />

of deep, restorative sleep.<br />

“Our intention is that your<br />

Hyoumankind pillow – like the reusable<br />

water bottle – will become an integral<br />

part of your everyday life, always with<br />

you, offering luxurious support and<br />

comfort wherever you go.”<br />

KIM JONES PRESENTS<br />

FIRST READY-TO-WEAR<br />

COLLECTION FOR FENDI<br />

Following his first haute couture show in January, Kim<br />

Jones presented his vision of Fendi women’s ready-to-wear<br />

for Fall/Winter 2021 on February <strong>24</strong>. Alongside Silvia Venturini<br />

Fendi for accessories and her daughter Delfina<br />

Delettrez Fendi for jewelry, <strong>The</strong> new Artistic Director<br />

paid homage to the women of the Fendi family. <strong>The</strong>ir allure,<br />

their legacy and their Italian origins all inspired a<br />

collection celebrating family.<br />

60


<strong>The</strong> monochrome silhouettes<br />

imagined by Kim Jones<br />

walked a runway framed<br />

by references to ancient Rome in<br />

F-shaped glass boxes. In this contemporary<br />

museum décor, the<br />

vestiges of antiquity focused a<br />

spotlight on contrasts between<br />

heritage, savoir-faire and ultra-modernity.<br />

Kim Jones found inspiration<br />

in the wardrobes of the five<br />

Fendi sisters, “a powerful dynasty”<br />

that energized the development<br />

of the family house by recruiting<br />

Karl Lagerfeld in 1965. A palette of<br />

camel, powdery pink, taupe, olive<br />

green and marble white referenced<br />

the different generations of Fendi<br />

women. <strong>The</strong> final silhouettes in<br />

sophisticated black were a nod to<br />

Delfina Delettrez Fendi, who wore<br />

a black tuxedo at her first meeting<br />

with Kim Jones. A fourth generation<br />

member of the family, she<br />

embodies the Maison’s creative future.<br />

For the show she introduced a<br />

new range of Fendi O’Lock jewelry,<br />

an update on the iconic logo in the<br />

form of padlocks that can only be<br />

opened by dialing FENDI.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Fendi family are women of<br />

intellect who work hard – and<br />

that’s what I wanted to celebrate,”<br />

said Kim Jones. In an ongoing dialogue<br />

with them, the artistic director<br />

gave Silvia Venturini Fendi the<br />

idea of reappropriating the family<br />

“F” to create a bag. With its tilted<br />

initial “F”, the Fendi First bag was a<br />

highlight accessory, presented in<br />

myriad variations, from a jewelry<br />

micro pouch on a chain to a clutch<br />

in different leathers and exotics.<br />

This new classic joins the Peekaboo<br />

and Sunshine Shopper. Kim Jones’<br />

new Roman empresses showcase<br />

the savoir-faire of the House with<br />

these luxurious accessories.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spectacular quality of the materials<br />

– from mink and leathers to<br />

silk – impart an exceptional touch<br />

to the women who wear them. Fendi<br />

workshops meticulously embroidered<br />

delicate organza and applied<br />

exquisite embossed Selleria stitching<br />

on leather accessories, as well<br />

as the collars of garbardine trenches<br />

and cashmere coats. Listening to<br />

the needs of women, Kim Jones said<br />

he wanted to create chic and timeless<br />

pieces. <strong>The</strong> show had an air of<br />

sensuality with plays of bare skin<br />

at the shoulders and midriff. Legs<br />

stood out in Karligraphy stockings<br />

and ankles were lifted by heels with<br />

an inverted Fendi logo inspired by a<br />

Karl Lagerfeld archive sketch.<br />

To cap this first ready-to-wear collection<br />

for Fendi, Kim Jones took a<br />

bow to the captivating song by Carl<br />

Abrahamsson & Genesis Breyer<br />

P-Orridge titled “S/He Is Her/E”, a<br />

powerful echo of the artistic director’s<br />

vision, exhorting viewers to<br />

“change the world” and “embrace<br />

the future with a kiss”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> runway show and behind the<br />

scenes videos of the décor and<br />

backstage are posted on fendi.com.<br />

broadsheet newspaper headlined “<strong>The</strong> Loewe Show<br />

Has Been Cancelled”, with original writing by American<br />

novelist Danielle Steel. Conceived as a knowing<br />

mélange of fashion and culture, the newspaper is a<br />

perfect symbol of the current period. <strong>The</strong> creative<br />

director wanted fashion with switched on hedonism,<br />

saturated in therapeutic colors, creating an<br />

electric collection with bright hues juxtaposed in<br />

geometric prints for an architectural result. Comfort<br />

is once again celebrated with fluid curves and<br />

draping. Jonathan Anderson’s collection is as joyful<br />

as it is generous.<br />

Dior: a modern-day fairy tale<br />

For her new collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri invites<br />

us into a territory where the time-space dimension<br />

has been erased. Dior immerses us into a<br />

dreamlike world straight from fairy tales, and the<br />

Hall of Mirrors in the Château de Versailles provides<br />

the perfect backdrop. <strong>The</strong> designer revisits<br />

iconic Dior codes with essential black, permeated<br />

by a through line of red, setting the theme for the<br />

season. Colorful evening gowns seem to evaporate<br />

in marvelous colors, transforming women<br />

into modern-day princesses while recalling the<br />

world of childhood with plastrons in broderie<br />

anglaise. <strong>The</strong> Fall-Winter 2021/2022 collection<br />

celebrates a feminine sensibility that magically<br />

blends memories of past and maturity.<br />

Givenchy: identity wardrobe<br />

Matthew Williams’ Givenchy is a striking mix of comfort,<br />

protection and intimacy. <strong>The</strong> collection by the<br />

designer, who became Givenchy creative director<br />

during the health crisis, reflects the intensity of the<br />

past year. A mix of lavishness and austerity, the silhouettes<br />

are about a constant tension between two<br />

worlds. Micro and macro lines contrast extravagance<br />

and taut cropping, and an architectural approach to<br />

tailoring, creating an urban style with materials that<br />

envelop and cocoon, emphasizing freedom of movement<br />

and the liberation of the body. Matthew William’s<br />

dramaturgical show perfectly showcased the<br />

ethos of this Fall-Winter 2021/2022 collection.<br />

Louis Vuitton: time travel<br />

With an empty Louvre providing a stunning set,<br />

Nicolas Ghesquière presented a Women’s Fall-Winter<br />

2021/2022 collection teeming with life. To a<br />

soundtrack from duo Daft Punk, Louis Vuitton<br />

embarks us on an extraordinary odyssey. <strong>The</strong> collection<br />

features a collaboration with Italian design<br />

atelier Fornasetti. Nicolas Ghesquière created a<br />

liberating and bold collection, incorporating Fornasetti’s<br />

distinctive visual world. Colorful silhouettes<br />

playing with volumes were matched with antique<br />

motifs drawn by Fornasetti, a subtle blend of<br />

timeless modernity and history. <strong>The</strong> Louis Vuitton<br />

wardrobe tells a story of body, heart and mind.<br />

HOW CAN YOU<br />

DRESS FOR SUCCESS?<br />

Your time is precious – if you’re going to invest time<br />

in something, you want to come out with a winning<br />

result. So, if you’re thinking about visiting a tailor for<br />

the first time, it’s great to know ahead of time what<br />

to expect.<br />

So here’s what to ask your tailor – so you walk away<br />

with the suit that you really want.<br />

1. Which colours suit me?<br />

Because it’s not just about finding a colour you like.<br />

You may love magnolia and it may look great on your<br />

walls, but it might not be such a good match for your<br />

skin tone.<br />

Plus, it isn’t just a matter of being dark skinned or<br />

light skinned or somewhere in between. Everyone<br />

has an undertone to their skin, too.<br />

Generally, those with a light complexion should<br />

avoid grey suits as they can be draining. Those with<br />

olive toned or darker skin have a little more flexibility<br />

when it comes to suitable hues. However, it’s always<br />

advised to avoid tone-on-tone looks. Just like<br />

pastel shades wash out paler skin, brown won’t provide<br />

enough contrast for medium skin tones.<br />

Your tailor will offer a professional colour consultation<br />

to guide you when selecting the final fabric.<br />

2. And what about pattern?<br />

A good tailor will only suggest patterns to complement<br />

or enhance your size and shape.<br />

Shorter guys can look to pinstripes, which help to<br />

elongate the frame. If you’re larger or oval shaped,<br />

it’s best to stay away from unflattering horizontal<br />

stripes. <strong>The</strong> windowpane check looks smart and stylish<br />

on most, whilst also helping extra-slim frames look<br />

larger.<br />

If it’s your very first suit, we’d recommend starting<br />

classic in a universally flattering colour such as navy.<br />

As your tailored arsenal grows, you can begin to experiment<br />

with herringbone or chalk stripes for a confident<br />

stance.<br />

3. Which style works for my body shape?<br />

This question is imperative so you can walk out of your<br />

tailors feeling confident in a suit you love – that’s suited<br />

to your individual height and size.<br />

66


Passion for<br />

Fashion<br />

If you’re on the shorter side, look to a smaller trouser<br />

break that can help you look a little bit taller. Narrow<br />

shoulders? Peak lapels can help broaden this area.<br />

For tall men, make sure the leg length and sleeves are<br />

long enough so it’s clear the suit was professionally tailored<br />

and not bought off the rack. And while the double-breasted<br />

blazer works well on certain body frames,<br />

larger men should usually stick to single-breasted designs<br />

for a slimmer take.<br />

4. And how can I make sure my suit stands out from the<br />

crowd?<br />

Your final question… and one that means your tailor is<br />

intent on creating the very best suit around. Of course,<br />

the cut, fit and the quality of fabrics used all have a<br />

part to play in giving your new suit the ‘wow’ factor.<br />

You’re looking for the perfect blend of your personal<br />

style preferences with something that will stand the<br />

test of time.<br />

Those with a sartorial eye know that it’s all in the details.<br />

Nothing gives away bad quality like poor stitching,<br />

for instance. Remember, there’s a deep heritage<br />

to tailoring so ask where your tailor trained in his<br />

craft and the background of the company – if you hear<br />

words like ‘Mayfair’ then you know you’re joining distinguished<br />

clientele.<br />

So now it’s time to meet your tailor, armed with these<br />

four key questions that are going to result in a superlative<br />

suit.<br />

THE NEW COLLECTION AUTOMOBILI<br />

LAMBORGHINI BY ZAMBAITI PARATI<br />

<strong>The</strong> collaboration between Zambaiti Parati, creator<br />

of Italian high-end wallcoverings and Italian<br />

super sports car manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini,<br />

has produced a new collection of wallcoverings<br />

and decorative panels. This second collaboration<br />

also draws on the iconic aesthetic characteristics of<br />

the Sant’Agata Bolognese car manufacturer, to create<br />

an evocative 2021 collection in gray, shades of copper<br />

and different tones of green with a natural effect.<br />

<strong>The</strong> two brands’ relationship is based on the shared<br />

principles of modernity and strong design, reflecting<br />

tastes and trends found in both the furnishing and automotive<br />

industries for new materials, such as carbon<br />

fiber and metals with different finishes. Zambaiti Parati’s<br />

study of the aesthetics and lines of the distinctive<br />

Lamborghini super sports cars started in 2017, working<br />

closely with Lamborghini’s Centro Stile (design<br />

center), with the first wallpaper collection presented<br />

in January 2019 and the second in February 2021. Both<br />

collections draw on details from Lamborghini models<br />

such as the carbon fiber materials and even specific<br />

car parts: the Centro Stile’s idea to scan pieces and<br />

translate their lines into graphic effects on the wallpapers<br />

is a perfect illustration of the competence and<br />

creative teamwork of the two brands’ collaboration.<br />

solidity and thickness of its wallpaper products: qualities<br />

that reflect the technical materials used by the<br />

prestigious car brand. <strong>The</strong> wallpapers are offered in<br />

rolls of seven square meters on a non-woven support<br />

that allows direct gluing and quick and easy replacement.<br />

<strong>The</strong> materials are fireproof and thus suitable for<br />

dining and hospitality applications. Digitally-printed<br />

decorative panels are also included in the 2021 collection,<br />

featuring decorative motifs on a larger scale<br />

drawn from Lamborghini design, and enhancing the<br />

range’s aesthetic dynamism.<br />

As in all collections from Zambaiti Parati, three-dimensional<br />

and tactile effects are distinctive of the<br />

70


Zambaiti Parati, like Lamborghini,<br />

embraces the vision of Made in Italy,<br />

standing for the technological innovation<br />

and Italian creativity that<br />

stands out worldwide. <strong>International</strong>ly-oriented<br />

collections combine<br />

modern tastes with classic heritage,<br />

appealing to an established clientele<br />

as well as younger consumers. <strong>The</strong><br />

project with Automobili Lamborghini<br />

fits perfectly with Zambaiti Parati’s<br />

innovative internal culture as well<br />

as helping develop its proposition to<br />

customers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first collaborative collection was<br />

chosen for the lounges of Automobili<br />

Lamborghini around the world, appealing to different<br />

cultures as well as a diverse Lamborghini clientele including<br />

younger consumers: visitors to the international<br />

fairs where the collection was presented were<br />

equally intrigued by the presence of a Lamborghini<br />

super sports car on display at Zambaiti Parati booth,<br />

such as at the Mosbuild in Moscow. <strong>The</strong> new 2021 collection<br />

is created to appeal to markets throughout Europe,<br />

America and Asia with a product equally suitable<br />

for residential and commercial applications, and designed<br />

for a demanding and refined clientele.<br />

If you are looking for a cocktail that’s sure to impress, dive into the world of shaking,<br />

flaring, and pouring by creating one of their most loved ones at home.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Hennessy Old Fashioned<br />

A cocktail as powerful and complex as flavourful, with rich<br />

aromas of cardamom, clove and bitter orange. It is equally<br />

enjoyable when sipped alone or with company. Created in<br />

1881, this cocktail is the choice for you if you are looking to<br />

encapsulate your old-fashioned nature!<br />

• 50 ml Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège<br />

• 20 ml simple syrup<br />

• 2 dashes Angostura Bitters<br />

• 1 orange zest<br />

Put bitters into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice cubes.<br />

Add a splash of water and the syrup. Pour in the Hennessy<br />

V.S.O.P Privilège slowly. Garnish with a twist of orange.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Manhattan Cocktail<br />

If you’re looking for an unusual, yet intriguing cocktail combination,<br />

this is the cocktail to have in hand at your next encounter.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sweet vermouth adds extra depth, making this<br />

beautiful red pop of colour undeniably sophisticated.<br />

• 50 ml Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège<br />

• 20 ml sweet vermouth<br />

• 2 dashes Angostura Bitters<br />

• 1 orange twist<br />

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with 8 ice cubes.<br />

Stir for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled champagne coupe.<br />

Garnish with an orange twist and serve immediately.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Hennessy Ginger Cocktail<br />

Awash with ginger, the addition of Hennessy V.S steers this<br />

classic cocktail into one with more flavour – the fusion between<br />

these two great aromas is like the fusion between two<br />

well-suited humans.<br />

• 40 ml Hennessy Very Special<br />

• 100 ml ginger ale<br />

Pour the Hennessy cognac into a highball glass. Add ice cubes<br />

to fill the glass. Top with ginger ale. Garnish with a lime wedge<br />

or slices of fresh ginger.<br />

76


Gastro<br />

Gusto<br />

<strong>The</strong> French 75<br />

A tribute to art de vivre and the French practice of enjoying<br />

life to its fullest, this cocktail is about as French and delightful<br />

as it gets, ideal for a cocktail rendez-vous at home. Blend it<br />

and enjoy the fizzing sound of the bubbles.<br />

• 40 ml Hennessy Very Special<br />

• 15 ml simple syrup<br />

• 25 ml fresh lemon juice<br />

• Top with sparkling wine or champagne<br />

• Garnish: lemon twist<br />

Build directly in a flute glass. Top with champagne and garnish<br />

with a lemon twist.<br />

INTRODUCING HENNESSY’S NUMBER 1<br />

MOST LOVED COCKTAIL<br />

<strong>The</strong> Mule<br />

Being its biggest hit among cocktail-fans<br />

from all over the world, <strong>The</strong><br />

Mule is as easy to make as it is to<br />

drink. Hennessy V.S and ginger beer<br />

form a sought-after alliance, with a<br />

refreshing taste that intensifies with<br />

every sip and that lingers long after<br />

the drink is gone.<br />

• 45 ml Hennessy Very Special<br />

• 100 ml ginger beer<br />

• Garnish: lime wedge and or fresh ginger slices<br />

Pour the Hennessy and ginger ale into a Rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a wedge of lime or fresh ginger slices.<br />

Or both!<br />

Hennessy Very Special (V.S) is one of the most popular cognacs in the world. Matured in new oak<br />

barrels, Hennessy V.S is bold and fragrant. Its beguiling character is uniquely Hennessy, a timeless<br />

choice with an intensity all its own. Hennessy V.S offers toasted and fruit notes, with a rich, clearly<br />

defined palate and a welcoming exuberance.<br />

Hennessy V.S expresses its vibrant and dynamic personality through unique artist partnerships<br />

and annual limited editions. Easy to enjoy, it’s a perfect cognac for high-energy occasions and<br />

sharing the moment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> round and robust flavours of Hennessy V.S make it very versatile and ideal for any cocktail<br />

possibility, from classic recipes and sophisticated cocktail creations to easy mixed drinks.<br />
