Exceptional leisure

spaces by 12 hay hill

Set in an imposing, six-storey building at the heart of

the most coveted postcode in Britain, 12 Hay Hill has

pioneered ‘club-working’ as a modern way to do business.

Conceived as a private members’ club for business, it is

the first to provide businesspeople with a high-specification

curated environment in which to meet, entertain,

base their enterprise and conduct business

alongside exceptional leisure space and five-star service.

the line between work and leisure, it modernises

the very British concept of the private members’ club

as a hive of activity as well as leisure.

Its fast-growing membership comprises a diverse

community of industry leaders, influencers and innovators.

From finance to fashion, the club prides itself

on being a hub of inspiration where ideas are born and

nurtured, deals are signed and business excels and





Story and tradition

of the wine that

touches the sky

Childhood scents and sensations remain indelibly

imprinted in the human brain, and their

evocative power is as strong as the emotions

accompanying them.

Thus, it happens that the scent of a wine can

rekindle in people's hearts the romanticism of

past loves and experiences, in the melancholy of

what is no longer there, and in the hope of what

may still be. When Alberto Verde, founder of

Italian boutique winery Drengot uncorks his

bottle of Scalillo, he smiles, with his eyes lost in

a journey through time that brings him back to

when he was a child and ran through his grandfather's

vineyards. « This scent – he says - contains

what I was and what I am today. The song

of a muse you don't know and from whom you

can't escape, who speaks directly to your heart

and overwhelms you. It is this scent that has

dragged me here again, in my land of origin. ».

He spent his childhood helping his grandfather

to take care of his family's vineyards, immersed

in the breeziness and authenticity of a harsh

territory, that at the same time is generous in

giving itself unreservedly.

After that, Alberto leaves his own land, and chooses

to go far away to be able to start his projects

as an entrepreneur. But that insistent thought

never leaves him - the family vineyards and the

priceless treasure of a tradition that is likely to


«"I had been away from Aversa for several years

- says Alberto - my commitments, my job kept

me busy. Then, one day, I came back to visit my

family. It had been a very good year for Asprinio

and I went down to my grandfather's cellar to

see the fruits of a particularly favorable harvest.

There, the scent of Asprinio enveloped me. It

penetrated my mind and went down, straight to

my heart, making me feel a warmth and an

emotion that I hadn’t felt for a long time. In a

moment I saw myself as a child again. Me running

among the vines, during the wonderful


feast of the harvest, which here is sacrifice and

sharing. I heard my grandfather's words as he

told me about the importance of the various

phases of the cultivation of the vines. And at a

certain point I realised. Everyone had to be

able to experience such real and strong sensations.

Everyone had to know that priceless

treasure that waits patiently and opens up in

a silent and dark tuff cellar. The Drengot

adventure had officially begun in my mind.».

After that experience, Alberto decides to leave

everything and return to Aversa. He courageously

took over the reins of the family business

and renamed the old cellar with the

name of Drengot. The choice of such an

important name is deliberate: it refers to the

house of Rainulph, a Norman nobleman who

lived in the year one thousand, founder and

first count of Aversa. It is a message: starting

again from the roots to give strength and

vigour to a rare and precious product.

In starting up his business, Alberto makes a

specific choice: not to make compromises.

Asprinio is a white grape variety that has a

unique taste and organoleptic characteristics,

which depend precisely on the process of

ancient cultivation that, by now, almost no

one chooses to carry on.

For the high cost in terms of sacrifices and

work in the maintenance of the vineyards.

The Asprinio vines, in fact, have the peculiar

characteristic of developing in height, at 15-20

meters above the ground, "married" to poplar


This particular cultivation technique has very

specific effects. In terms of product quality

and plant care and management. It is an

ancient vocation that is very complicated to

manage and difficult to sustain in the modern

management of the vineyard. In fact, the average

harvesting costs are of at least three times

more than a normal harvest.

The grapes of Asprinio must be strictly

hand-picked. Only expert farmers are able to

carry out this operation. Each of them uses a

wooden ladder, the "Scalillo", about 15 meters

long and custom-built on a human scale. The

distance between the rungs, in fact, is calculated

on the basis of the height and weight of

the individual farmer, to allow him to climb

easily along the tall rows and have his hands

free to pick the bunches of grapes. The care of

the vineyards also requires the same commitment:

each farmer carries out the pruning by

hand, on the Scalillo. This results in the typical

"embroidery" of the vines and the binding of

the shoots. Only the Asprinio can lend itself to

this particular cultivation technique and, for

obvious reasons, there are only a few hectares

cultivated following the most ancient traditions

and very few people able to take care of


For this reason, it is possible to obtain a limited

number of bottles of pure Asprinio that

meet the right standards of quality, purity and


Each year, Drengot produces only about 7,000

bottles of Scalillo and 13,000 bottles of Terramasca.

That's why Drengot wines are exclusive

products that are hard to find.

Each bottle is a precious jewel to which this

unique and spectacular type of cultivation

gives birth. An environmental and cultural

heritage that Drengot has imposed itself to

protect and revive.

Irene Forte Skincare is founded by Irene

Forte, beauty entrepreneur and wellness

director of the Rocco Forte Hotels group.

Passionate about wellness and leading a

healthy lifestyle, Irene is a fresh voice in the

wellness and spa industry.

Her family originates from Italy and she has

spent a lot of time there since a very young

age. She first stepped foot in Sicily in 2003

to visit the site that would soon become

Rocco Forte’s Verdura Resort. Six years

later, the resort opened its doors and Irene

spent almost a year working there. She fell

in love with the people, the culture, the food

and the breath-taking nature of the island.

Irene realised that Sicily’s rich ingredients

and the bounty of Verdura’s organic farm

made for the perfect base for a skincare

line. Inspired by Sicily’s authenticity and

beautiful nature, she knew she wanted to

create a nutritious skincare line that was

sustainable in its entire life cycle. She was

also influenced by Sicilian handicrafts,

wanting to ensure that her products were

hand-manufactured and that her treatments

focussed on the power of touch.

Irene has worked closely with Dr. Francesca

Ferri of EffegiLab and her team of biologists

and dermatologists in Trento, Italy. After

three years in development, she has launched

a range of highly advanced formulas, using

the finest Mediterranean and organic

ingredients. Irene Forte Skincare is a

multi-benefit, natural and sustainable

skincare brand, inspired by Sicily and

handmade in Italy. It is the Mediterranean

diet for your skin.

The line is imbued with active ingredients

grown on the organic farm at Rocco Forte

Hotels’ Verdura Resort – organic olive

oil, nuts, plants, herbs, fruits and flora –

compounded with oligomineral water from

Sicily’s mountainous Madonie Regional

Natural Park. With recyclable glass, 100%

recycled paper, vegetable and soya based

inks, Irene Forte Skincare is sustainable in

its entire lifecycle.

Irene Forte Skincare is free from skinunfriendly

parabens, paraffins, colourants,

sodium laureth sulfate and abrasive

fragrances. Expect natural, vegetarian

ingredients, innovative formulas and deeply

effective, targeted results.

All skincare products are available at

The EUROPA 2 combines the highest standards with special

moments and relaxation, giving you the freedom to make your

dreams come true – in style, relaxed and personal.

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is the oldest cruise line in the world, yet it’s unlikely

you’ve ever heard of the company, or its ship EUROPA 2, which has held

the title ‘world’s highest-rated ship’ every year since its launch. So, what

is it that makes this Hamburg-based cruise line the best kept secret in

the world of cruising? We chatted with its International Brand Ambassador

Jonathan Beaumont to find out.

Jonathan, why haven’t we heard more about

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises before?

Well up until a few years ago it was only operating cruises for

the German speaking markets but that changed six years

ago when its first international ship EUROPA 2 was launched.

Hapag- Lloyd Cruises’ founder Albert Ballin actually invented

the concept of cruising back in 1891, so the cruise line has

been doing this for a while now!

EUROPA 2 is a German cruise ship so what can people


I say to people think of all the good things Germany is

known for, German engineering, precision, design, attention

to detail, that’s what you get with its flagship EUROPA 2.

Why do we buy German cars, kitchens and appliances?

Because we know they’re the best. With EUROPA 2 you’ll find

the very best that Germany has to offer on board.

What did you do onboard that’s different from other lines?

We wanted to create a space that was more like a contemporary

boutique hotel rather than a cruise ship. Everywhere

you go you’ll notice how much light and space there is. The

ship feels stylish and elegant in a very modern way. We also

worked to make sure the ship never feels full even when it is.

What language is spoken on board?

EUROPA 2 is a bilingual ship and all crew speak both German

and English fluently. In fact, most of the guests do too. I know

people have often wondered if they’re going to be able to

mix with people on board and then are surprised to find we

attract a very well-travelled clientele who love nothing

more than switching into English for a good chat. All staff

members have to be fluent in English.

Cruising tends to fall into two camps, those who do cruise

and those who vow they never will. How do you reach

those who say cruising is just not for them?

It’s a good question and one the entire cruise industry keeps

asking! The fact is most who do take a cruise love it and

then continue to do it but it’s important to do your research

and choose the right ship. I think it’s fair to say most of our

guests are not those who would do just any cruise, they

cruise with us because what we do is very different. Our

guests are very varied in their holiday choices and they

might do a two-week cruise with us in the spring, rent

a villa in Tuscany in the summer and then ski in Gastaad

in the winter. They’re well-travelled and very cultured.

A lot of cruise lines in the ultra-luxury sector have switched

over to the all-inclusive model where everything is included

in the price. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises don’t offer this. Why is


It’s not for us. We attract the type of clientele who want to

be able to order a bottle of Château Mouton-Rothschild and

who don’t mind paying for it, so we want to give them that

choice. We have one of the largest wine and spirit collections

at sea ranging from around 20 euros a bottle to 1,000 euros

so there really is something for everyone and we carry over

40 varieties of gin on board.

What about destinations, where does EUROPA 2 cruise to?

Everywhere! No two years are the same. EUROPA 2 traverses

the world and we are always looking for emerging destinations

which we can build into our itineraries plus being a small

ship we are able to visit places larger ships cannot.

What makes EUROPA 2 special for you?

For a luxury ship I love that it’s so casual, yet so chic on

board. We don’t do formal nights but guests do make an

effort to look nice for dinner. I love the caviar nights that

are held on every cruise. Then there are the little things that

happen quite spontaneously that really leave you with special

memories such as the time we were cruising off the coast of

Brazil and the captain saw a couple of small fishing boats.

It turns out they had just made a huge catch, so the head

chef and the hotel manager took boats out to see them and

bought everything! It was so wonderful to see them jumping

up and down with excitement. Then there was the time we

were cruising in the British Virgin Islands and we dropped

anchor at this tiny island with the most beautiful beach. The

ship organised a party with free-flowing champagne and

a barbecue and there was a band playing as we swam. The

year before last I finally managed to cruise into New York

on the transatlantic voyage and seeing Manhattan appear

in the distance like a tiny dot just getting bigger and bigger

was really exciting. The ship had flown in a band from New

York and as we entered they started playing New York, New

York and the champagne corks started popping and people

were getting really emotional not just because we were

arriving into New York, but because the ship had made it

such a memorable event.

So, what’s next for Hapag-Lloyd Cruises?

Well 2019 is going to be a busy one for us. We have our two

new expedition ships being delivered, HANSEATIC nature in

April and for the international markets, HANSEATIC inspiration

in October. We were pioneers in the field of expedition cruising

and have seen a huge surge in those wanting to visit the Arctic

and Antarctic regions. They are certainly on my list to visit.

World Famous

Italian Winery

closer to the German market. In the exclusive circle of The Luxury Network members club the company’s

philosophy will be shared in valuable co-operations and also endorsed to the members pre-selected top

The fantastic story of this vineyard is part of the enjoyment of this outstanding product and sharing it in special

moments with special people will create unforgettable experiences. This is what the The Luxury Network and its

members are standing for,” comments Silvia Herrmann, CEO of The Luxury Network Germany.

“Being part of The Luxury Network is an honour, and certainly a source of inspiration to give life to important

projects and collaborations to help Asprinio achieve the acknowledgment it deserves, an exchange of value that

will undoubtedly allow us to forge longlasting and interesting partnerships. “adds Alberto Verde, Founder of


About Drengot

Drengot is a boutique winery based in Aversa, Southern Italy, that has chosen to be the guardian of an exceptional

territorial and cultural identity. Its mission is to make known to the whole world a unique product, made

by respecting a method of cultivation that has fallen almost into disuse: the “Alberate Aversane” (Aversa tree


The Asprinio vines are cultivated together with poplar trees. In this way, they extend their branches towards the

sky, managing to climb up to 15 meters high. It is there, at those altitudes, that the grapes ripen, embellishing

themselves with an unparalleled flavour and colour that only such a distance from the ground can give them.

The Aversa trellises are a spectacle of rare beauty: bright and elegant green tapestries embellish the landscapes

of the agro-aversano landscape. A scenario that cannot be admired anywhere else in the world.

The grape harvest and care are carried out exclusively by hand. Skilled winemakers, known by the name of

“spider-men”, climb on handmade wooden stairs. Each staircase is perfectly suited to the physicality of a single

winemaker. The distance of the pegs is calculated on the basis of the length of the leg, to allow the “spider-man”

to make the most agile movements, at dizzying heights.

Drengot wines are the result of an ancient art, handed down for centuries and are made using only Asprinio

grapes. For this reason, given the scarcity of vineyards cultivated according to tradition, it is possible to make

only a few bottles of pure Asprinio that meet the right standards of quality, purity and taste. This is why Drengot

wines are exclusive products that are difficult to find.

Today, Drengot has the responsibility to preserve a precious, centuries-old heritage and to donate to its consumers

wines that no one else has.

The Swiss-based leaders in cell therapy focused on

long-term health and wellness.

• Our clinic is situated in Germany (right on the border

of Switzerland and France) and is encircled by the natural

beauty and serenity of the Black Forest.

• We offer time-saving, safe, effective and pain-free

cell therapy for rejuvenation, anti-aging, detox, pain,

infertility and the treatment of chronic conditions.

• Our cell therapy treatments address the root cause

of health problems (at cell level) rather than treating

the symptoms.

• We believe that, just as it is important to invest in

your future financial security through investments

and retirement planning, it is essential to invest in

your long-term health to ensure that you maintain a

good standard of living for years to come.

• We have more than 40 years’ experience in cell therapy.

• Quality, safety, privacy and security are our priority.

• All of our senior medical experts have at least 25

years’ practical medical experience (excluding their

time in education and training).

• All of our doctors are German born, raised and educated

(with degrees from German universities).

• Our service combines the latest in cell therapy technology

and treatment approach with superior client


• Our clients are primarily ultra-high net worth

(UHNW) and high net worth (HNW) individuals who

network in political, royal, entertainment and business


What is the VIMED CELL experience?

The concept behind our boutique clinic is that only

patients who know each other are treated at the same

time. This means that a patient will never meet another

patient who is unknown to them at our clinic.

There are no waiting rooms, the days of a patient’s

consultation and treatment are reserved for them


• Patients can receive treatment in reasonably sized

groups of family or friends.

• Each patient will have a dedicated team serving them

over their entire treatment period. This eliminates any

communication or handover issues.

• Our approach is a holistic one. Our medical team have

a broad understanding of the human body rather than

limited knowledge of a particular medical subfield.

• Our medical staff are not placed under the same time

pressures as those working in public clinics and hospitals.

We spend as much time as necessary talking to

our patients about their concerns, health problems

and medical history for a greater understanding of

their unique case.

What is the standard procedure?

• We do not offer any standardised treatments.

• We look at every case as unique and formulate a

treatment programme to fit the needs of the individual


• Our treatments, which are valued between €25,000

and €50,000 are conducted over a period of 3 to 5

days depending on the therapy required.

Where does VIMED source stem cells?

• We use our patients’ own, fresh stem cells.

The body will always accept the own, fresh material

and not fight against it.

• We use autologous stem cells (a CD34+ sub-type)




which is a repairing cell found in the bone marrow.

• We use a patented laser technique to mobilises

the stem cells from the bone marrow, into the blood

stream - where we source the cells. This does not require


• Due to our patented technology, we are able to source

the human stem cells without an invasive operation –

the procedure is completely pain-free.

• Because CD34+ cells have the highest repairing

mechanism, the therapy is not only effective but quick.

• One of the cells used for our treatment can repair

up to 60,000 ill cells before settling back in the bone

marrow where it was before being released into the

patient’s blood.

When should someone consider VIMED CELL’s anti-aging/rejuvenation


• While the signs of aging generally start to show at

around 35 (earlier for smokers), the internal process

begins a lot earlier at about 25 when our bodies begin

losing the ability to constantly generate new cells.

• Poor functioning of damaged cells results in symptoms

such as decreased energy, memory loss, mood

swings, poor concentration, fatigue, wrinkles, age

spots, aches and pains, hair loss, insomnia and reduced

sex drive – just to name a few.

• It is important to start considering anti-aging/rejuvenation

from as young as 25 years old.

• Our anti-aging/rejuvenation treatment restores the

health of damaged cells, slowing down the aging process

and addressing numerous aging related issues

which results in a healthier, natural appearance and

better quality of life.

When should someone consider VIMED CELL’s pain


• For those dealing with chronic pain, doctors will often

recommend surgery.

• We believe that surgery should be only be considered

as the very last intervention, if nothing else has helped.

• Surgery comes with a number of undesirable side

effects and limitations following treatment – this includes

the long-term use of post-op medications and

long recovery periods.

• Our pain treatments, however, are an extremely effective

alternative to invasive surgeries and has been

very successful in reducing the pain experienced by

our clients and - in most cases - has eliminated it

completely, leaving them pain-free.

• Our pain treatment is effective in treating chronic

pain anywhere in the body including the hip, knee,

shoulder, back and ankle.

• Treatments are not just a short-term fix for pain

management but also aids in improving the overall

health and wellbeing of our patients.

When should someone you consider VIMED CELL’s

fertility treatment?

The term ‘infertility’ is used to describe when a couple

have been unable to conceive a baby after trying

for at least a year.

• Couples who have not been able to conceive after

trying for this period, those who are experiencing issues

with potency, sperm quality or ovulatory disorders,

as well as those who simply want to ensure that

their bodies are producing the highest quality eggs

and sperm, should consider our fertility cell therapies.

• It is crucial to analyse both the male and female in

cases of infertility.

• We always conduct a premium medical check-up on

both the man and woman.

• With a success rate of more than 70%, we have helped

a number of couples in their quest for a healthy and

happy pregnancy (against all odds).

vibrant and contemporary canapés by award winning

The Luxury Network UK Celebrates

its 5th Anniversary

The Luxury Network UK, the

private membership club is

delighted to announce its

fifth birthday. They are celebrating

their expertise in amplifying brands

and businesses for success, and the

achievements of their members.

The luxury industry has undergone

major changes during recent times.

Economic uncertainty and geopolitical

crises, rapid digital transformation

and fast-evolving consumer

preferences are creating a new

competitive and challenging landscape,

which The Luxury Network

is helping clients to navigate.

The Luxury Network boasts a team

with experience working with best

in class luxury brands, headquartered

in London, the world’s luxury

capital. Boasting 28 offices worldwide

and a network of over 500

brands, the network is the next

generation of marketing for premium

brands; they specialise in forging

unique partnerships, which give

their members the edge in targeting

pre-qualified high-net-worth

clients across the world.

Members join this exclusive club

to anchor their brand in the luxury

space, building brand awareness

and creating powerful affinity

activities with like-minded luxury

professionals. Members share clientele

and activations to support

business development and client

retention. Through industry seminars

and networking at director

and owner level within the luxury

sector, they gain access to peer

group intelligence.

The UK is fast becoming the most

affordable luxury market in the

western world

Despite market uncertainty due to

Brexit, there have been few complaints

from retail brands in London,

where the fall in the value of

sterling has had tills ringing with

overseas visitors spending heavily.

Compared with China, prices in the

United Kingdom are on average 22

per cent cheaper.

Chinese arrivals into the U.K. have

now increased by a massive 58%

since 2014 with a projected 46%

growth in the next 5 years; China

now makes up 23% of tourist spend

on luxury goods in the UK, followed

by the U.S. at 13%, and the Middle

East at 12%. Luxury shopping

continues to be a status symbol

for wealthy tourists with the total

spend increasing by 41% in the last

5 years.


The United Kingdom is fast becoming

the most affordable luxury

market in the western world, and

London retains its mantle as the

centre of the retail world, with all

major brands maintaining flagship

stores in the capital. Meanwhile,

domestic luxury customers are reducing

their shopping abroad due

to unfavourable exchange rates and

spending more at home instead.



Sales in the U.K. have historically

been driven by the growth in luxury

cars, designer leather goods,

accessories, and beauty. However,

it is expected that categories such

as luxury hotels, and other luxury

services in the hospitality sector to

increase in importance as consumer

continue to look towards more

luxury experiences over ‘things.’

Sunseeker Adding ‘Wow’ Factor

with Alexander James Interiors

For The Luxury Network, one of the

most successful brand collaborations

to date has been between Sunseeker

London Group and Alexander

James Interiors, the award-winning

luxury interior design firm, which

now dresses all Sunseeker yachts

at boat shows around the world, including

Cannes, Southampton, Genoa,

and Monaco last month. When

a client saw the very first boat they

had dressed, they wanted to buy it,

so long as they could have all the

interiors. With boats selling for between

£3 to 5 million, it has proven

to be an exceptionally fruitful

relationship, and since joining The

Luxury Network three years ago,

Alexander James Interiors says that

the network accounts for between

50 to 60% of their marketing activity

for a fraction of their marketing


Sunseeker’s Group PR, Marketing

& Events Director Alexandra Harrison,

remarked: “The Sunseeker

London Group have been members

of The Luxury Network for

four years. Helena’s passion for

connecting like-minded brands is

exceptional and through her introductions,

we have made many superb,

beneficial connections.”

Managing Director of The Luxury

Network London and Global Head

of Business Development, Helena

Warren, the luxury expert with the

superlative matchmaking skills for

high-end brands commented: “The

rude health of the luxury sector

has led to a demand for increasingly

sophisticated sales techniques to

promote products and services in a




fiercely competitive market; we excel

in affinity marketing, which isn’t

a new concept, but an arguably unrivalled

approach to accessing new


We want our clients to stay ahead

of their peer group, so we are constantly

innovating, and we are excited

to be celebrating our fifth

birthday and our members successes

with the launch of additional

new services, including brand and

business development, event planning

and management, and marketing

planning and delivery, including

management of social media.”

The network is currently also developing

stronger ‘category verticals’

to maximise membership exclusivity,

focusing on luxury goods,

luxury services, finance, hospitality

and property.


Euromonitor International Identifies

the Luxury Market’s Key Disruptors

Fflur Roberts, Head of Luxury

Goods Research at Euromonitor

International, the world’s leading

independent provider of strategic

market research remarked on

the luxury market’s key disruptors:

“Global luxury goods sales edge

closer to US$ 1 trillion and is set to

reach almost US$93bn in the UK in

the next 5 years.

From 2018 to 2030, despite Brexit

uncertainty the number of highnet-worth

individuals in the U.K. is

expected to rise by 74% to reach

302,000, hailing largely from China,

India, the Middle East, and

Africa. The U.K.’s interest in luxury

also shows no signs of slowing

down but going forward, the focus

will be less on wealth and more

about mindful luxury. Wise brands

will incorporate a wellness and

ethical angle into their products

and services to drive consumer

interest. Materialism as a determinant

of status will persist in the

short-term but with a visible shift

towards experiences, and establishing

and maintaining empathy

will be the most powerful way to

create emotional connections with

luxury consumers.”

A Reason to Celebrate

With the market fast evolving and

Brexit on the horizon, The Luxury

Network, the invitational members

club, offers extraordinary partnership

event and collaboration

opportunities, so brands not only

navigate any unforeseen headwinds

but are propelled and elevated,

giving members a reason to

in for a quick glimpse – to say the very least. Meanwhile,

car enthusiasts could not resist hopping in for a

Launched in 2015, She’s Mercedes

is a global initiative aimed at empowering

women – showing how

they can provide mutual support.

Comprising of networking events,

a print magazine, and a digital

hub, this “Inspiration Circle”

boasts the attendance of exceptional

women from various fields

and industries. As such, each of

the collaborating brands cordially

invited their female VIP clients,

some of whom enjoyed the

intimate company of their family

and friends. This exclusive invitation

was further extended to a

select few clients of our esteemed

member, ONE15 Luxury Yachting.

Hosted at Mercedes-Benz Center,

the event offered guests an

opportunity to test drive not only

the new CLS, but also the Mercedes

AMG models. The party

then kickstarted, where guests

immersed themselves in the vivid

ambiance of the lounge!

The newly launched Mercedes

-Benz CLS 450was showcased in




their handmade bags. One of their craftsmen ran a live

inking demonstration, and attendees could try inking

the edges of the product. This interactive experience

was popular among ladies and gentlemen alike!

under a jewelry telescope, they also gained insight into

identifying and valuing these precious stones.

live cooking station. Stunning French-inspired canapés,

such as marinated scallops with black truffle,

classic smoked salmon blinis, and homemade caramel

bourbons, were served up butler-style. And of course,

with the continuous support of our partner Corner-

Stone Wines, our guests indulged in bottomless Perrier-Jouët

Grand Brut Champagne, Chateau Le Gay

Pomerol wine, and chilled Peroni Premium Beers.

AV One made sure to satisfy our auditory senses by

bringing in Burmester and Dynaudio sound systems.

The former traces its origins back to Germany and is

reputed for its unparalleled sound quality and technological

innovation. It comes as no surprise that

Burmester is, in fact, an official partner of Mercedes!

Likewise, Dynaudio has long been admired for its

state-of-the-art facility in Denmark. With their aesthetic

designs, the speakers rendered the perfect

complement to the lounge’s deluxe décor.

We are honored to be part of this the She’s Mercedes

initiative. We look forward to witnessing this platform

flourish and are thrilled for future collaborations!

topics, was continued in October

at the Berliner Hotel de Rome.

Champagne by Pommery, the trendiest

MINUS 181, the rapid Lamborghini

Urus in front of the hotel’s entrance,

the ambiance and exquisite

cuisine were as selected as the list

of more than 86 top-class guests

and Executives of the luxury market.

They all spent this evening for

the like-minded with interesting

discussions, delicious culinary delights

and were inspired by exclusive

product showcases.




The definition of luxury from various

different views left a lot of

space for individual interpretations.

Lasting emotional brand experiences

were as well in the focus

of the talk as changing values notably

with regards to the generation

of the Millennials, forcing luxury

brands to invent themselves partly

or entirely new. The challenges

not only lie in the digitalisation

and new ways of communication

but also in the changing target

groups and their demands. Besides

the new positioning of the brands

in the field of communication it is

important that the development of

new target compatible products of

The Luxury Network Singapore Supports

Oneberry Ambassadors’ Cup 2018

The Luxury Network Singapore, together with

our Members and Partners, namely, Diplomatic

Council, Caratell, Peroni, CornerStone Wines,

Alba 1836, Base Entertainment, De Dietrich and The St

Regis Singapore supported the Oneberry Ambassadors’

Cup 2018 held early November 2018.

This year’s Ambassadors’ Cup marks the 19th Anniversary

of the event, proudly sponsored by Oneberry

Technologies. As Changi Sailing Club’s Signature Event,

the Regatta sees boats from Raffles Marina, Marina at

Keppel Bay, One Degree 15 Marina and SAFYC coming

from halfway across the island to take part.

Angler in 1st place and eventually taking line honours

with Chilean Ambassador Mr James Sinclair on board.

Justin Lean’s Invictus flew the European Union flag,

taking 2nd place in clinical fashion. Paul Kendall’s Jong

Dee made a few critical decisions amidst the challenging

wind conditions on the return, which allowed her

to cross the line 3rd and ultimately win the prestigious

19th Ambassadors’ Cup after corrected time with Hungarian

Ambassador H.E. Istvan Szerdahely on board.

Defending Champions Zanzibar return home empty

handed this year, missing out on 3rd place by a slim 15

seconds to Brazil and their hosts, Born in Fire – skip-

With a total of 57 boats on water, it was a grand sight

to behold from the Jetty, as the crew commence their

preparations for the start. Atul Sinha’s Meraki and Paul

Kendall’s Jong Dee got a little too excited before the

horn went, having to turn back after starting a few seconds

too early. The light North-Easterly breeze took

all 25 yachts in the Ambassadors’ Division on a shortlived

gentle sail down the coast of changi – only to be

met with a strong weather system coming inland from

above Tekong.

Despite trailing the leaders at the beginning, Jonathan

Mahony’s Zanzibar did well to catch up, rounding North




pered by Pascal Radue. Also separated by seconds, Invictus

maintained their 2nd position after handicap –

just 24 seconds behind Jong Dee and 17 seconds ahead

of Born in Fire…. close racing indeed!

A similar situation arose in the Non-Ambassadors’ Division,

as the boats in 3rd-5th place were separated

by mere seconds, with NTU Sailing’s Just A J (Norway)

emerging the best of the rest – 21 seconds ahead of

Mackson Chia’s Swannee (Korea). As only Bapsy (Sri

Lanka) and Sky Bird (Poland) finished the race within

the time limit, the former helmed by ex-Olympian Siew

Shaw Her’s Bapsy fittingly triumphed over Edwin Low’s

Sky Bird on handicap.

27 hulls on the start line made it an impressive start for

the Trimaran Division – as Abra Ca Deborah Too established

on early lead on the first stretch. Gary Curtis’s

Miss Visayan sailed well to eventually claim line honours

but surrendered overall victory on corrected time

to Deborah Barker’s Abra Ca Deborah Too. Graham

Horn’s Jaza Toocompleted the podium in 3rd.

A baffling u-turn by Quack after the start was the only

blemish on late-comer Scott McCook’s race, as Quack

sailed superbly single-handed to sneak ahead of Jeremy

Nixon’s Bad Influence on the return leg, securing victory

in the Beach Catamaran Division. Philippe Girardot’s

Hobie 16 took 3rd in the 3-strong fleet. For the 3rd year

in a row, Stefan Vidan’s Firefly won in the Cruising Catamaran

Division, well ahead of Mark Richard’s Pawmark

(Cambodia). The Cruising Catamaran Division were

sorely missing regulars Ximula, Katrianne and Annette,

due to various schedule conflicts / commitments. We

look forward to their return next year!

As always, it did not take long for sailors and diplomats

to get the party started, with Après-Sail Drinks

and Snacks brimming with South American flavours to

welcome sailors back from the afternoon’s race. The

Evening’s festivities were graced by Guest-of-Honour

Mr Albert Chua, Permanent Secretary (Environment &

Water Resources). Fueled by the free-flow of Tiger Beer,

sumptuous dinner buffet by Coachman Inn Restaurant

and smooth tunes from the EuroAsia Band, participants

danced the night away in what was yet another night of

unbridled revelry.

The success of this Event would not have been possible

without the strong support from Title Sponsors Oneberry

Technologies, Gold Sponsors Yanmar & Chong

Lee Leong Seng (CLLS), supporting sponsors Power

Partners Pte Ltd, Kaefer Prostar, Cosmosteel, Casillero

Del Diablo, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore and new

sponsors The Luxury Network Singapore + Diplomatic

Council (The Global Think Tank).

The evening brought further great news for the event as

Oneberry and Yanmar committed their support for the

20th Ambassadors’ Cup next year. Thank you all Sailors

and Sponsors for being a part of what is now without

doubt the biggest Sailing-Social Event in Singapore.

Fashion Meets Art With Tracie Eaton:

A Luxury Worthy Cause

witness Gold Coast local artist,

Tracie Eaton paint World Champion

Paralympic Gold and Silver medalist

Kelly Cartwright at Peninsula C,

Central Pier Docklands, Melbourne

on October 25.

This will be the first fashion runway

to have a Paralympian model, Kelly

Cartwright, strutting downthe runway

in a unique couture body paint


Ms Eaton says, “It is great knowing

that what I am creating with Kelly is

not only breaking new ground, but

setting the expectation for all that

we can be as fabulous as we choose

to be.” “The theme of the evening is

futuristic so I am creating a design

for Kelly that will have her looking

partially robotic, partially human.”




This sci-fi nature theme will transform Docklands into a futuristic wonderland. “We are creating something very

unique here, something that has not been seen before and that is super cool. Body art is only one part of the vision,”

Ms Eaton says.

Intricate designs, visual art and textures will be showcased throughout the event, merging the barriers between

fashion and art.

“My involvement with a couture fashion event is a great opportunity to showcase the fusion of art and fashion.

Fashion in itself is so highly creative, and I am thrilled to be able to add further creativity to that by integrating

body art into my couture design,” she says.

Guests will be mesmerised as they watch the theatrical runway come to life. Promising diversity and beauty, the

models will don exquisite couture pieces symbolising that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

The proceeds from the Angels with Wings event will be donated to Mercy Ships – an international organisation

who operate hospital ships in developing nations to deliver free healthcare services. This aid is offered to people

of all walks of life regardless of gender, race or age.

Ms Eaton will be creating a live painting during the Media launch, prior to the Runway Show, that will be donated

to the live auction, due to take place on the night of the event.

“Fashion is meeting art big time, and it is an honor to be a part of this fabulous event” she says.

The Gold Coast is bringing something new to not only Melbourne, but Australia. Neva (Dressed AU – creator of

show) and Tracie Eaton are both from Gold Coast. That is just wonderful.

TLN UAE’s Heart of Europe

Luxury Extravaganza

As the sun began to set over the UAE, Dubai’s finest posed on the shore with the new Rolls-Royce Dawn and

Wraith and then climbed aboard yachts to set sail for The Heart of Europe on the Dubai World Islands.

The Heart of Europe project is ambitiously developing 13 hotels on six man-made islands, the worlds first

Floating Seahorse Villas and boast the most exclusive second homes, the Sweden Beach Palaces, priced at over

100 million AED each and the site of The Luxury Network’s Extravaganza for the evening.

After a tour of the Floating Seahorse villa’s and the wonderment of the underwater bedrooms, guests transferred

to the island and stepped onto the beach, following the enchantingly lit jungle trail to the magnificent 25,000sqft

Sweden Beach Palace, where they were greeted by the inviting sounds of the Red Bull DJ, Red Bull Organics

Mocktails and delectable canapés by Ravioli and Co. With over 50 News outlets snapping pictures of the city’s

elite as they wandered through the expansive island palace, guests encountered luxury showcases by Al Bait

Sharjah, Natura Bissé, Evoke International, ExecuJet, Claviger, Coveti, Baravia Fashion and Whyte. Influencer

Paris interviewed brands and celebrities alike, live streamed by Red Monkey and a special appearance by Safia

El Omary was captured by McAwesome, 404 and Nurovcom photographers and videographers. Flowers by Stem

Stories dotted the venue over four floors, including the glass encapsulated rooftop, and guests were refreshed

with Voss water throughout the evening. Press and Media were also treated to a press conference launching the

new Hi Dubai TV series, meeting the 20 most influential women in Dubai, featured in the series, which begins

airing on Zee TV and Dubai One channels in January 2019. With over 360 patrons in attendance, the island oozed

with luxury, basking in the light displays and fire torches surrounding the infinity pool overlooking the water.

With a night full of influencers and movers and shakers, the night ended with a luxury gift bag from Gold Collagen

and unforgettable yacht trip back to the mainland, reality and maybe one last look at the Dawn and Wraith Rolls

Royce’s vigilantly awaiting Dubai’s jet-setters as they set foot back onshore.
