<strong>The</strong> Rolls-Royce Dawn was<br />

created to deliver the world’s<br />

most social, seductive opentop<br />

motoring experience for four<br />

people. In doing so, it attracted a<br />

new type of client to the marque<br />

– successful, young and dynamic<br />

men and women drawn to Dawn’s<br />

contemporary aesthetic and compelled<br />

by its owner/driver appeal.<br />

To add yet more aesthetic appeal<br />

to this remarkable motor car, the<br />

Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective of<br />

designers, engineers and craftspeople<br />

created a removable Aero<br />

Cowling. Introduced in 2018, this<br />

modern and meticulously constructed<br />

piece converts the aesthetic<br />

of Dawn into a two-seat<br />

roadster-style motor car with an<br />

extended tonneau cover sitting<br />

atop the two rear seats. By creating<br />

a higher-shouldered silhouette,<br />

Aero Cowling alters Dawn’s persona<br />

and heightens its sense of dynamic<br />

intent.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aero Cowling, which can be<br />

fitted and removed at a client’s<br />

discretion, encloses the rear seats<br />

beneath a beautifully hand-made<br />

cover, with two cowls rising from<br />

the leading edge of the tonneau<br />

area, to a point just behind each<br />

front seat headrest. <strong>The</strong> form of<br />

the cowls was precisely sculpted to<br />

funnel air gracefully over the cabin,<br />

so to enhance driver comfort.<br />

Each cowl is equipped with a pair<br />

of lockable leather-lined storage<br />

compartments for personal effects,<br />

while the cover itself is made of<br />

carbon fibre and aluminium. This<br />

choice of materials makes Aero<br />

Cowling incredibly light yet strong.<br />

<strong>The</strong> lids of the cowls are swathed in<br />

finest Rolls-Royce leather, perfectly<br />

matching the interior of the car<br />

as commissioned by the owner.<br />

A remarkable Bespoke canvas<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aero Cowling is not designed<br />

to simply transform the appearance<br />

of the Dawn, but to complement it.<br />

Bespoke canvases for colour and<br />

detail atop the cowl lids allow for a<br />

harmonious flow of colour between<br />

motor car and tonneau.<br />

Originally presented at the 2018<br />

Geneva Motor Show, the first Dawn<br />

Aero Cowling was matched perfectly<br />

with the Cassiopeia Silver<br />

and Casden Tan colour scheme<br />

of the motor car it adorned. <strong>The</strong><br />

central spine was finished in ex-<br />


Need for<br />

Speed<br />

posed carbon fibre, showcasing its<br />

lightweight structure, with a weave<br />

book-matched to a contemporary<br />

chevron graphic. This intricately<br />

detailed spine harmoniously ran<br />

down the centre of the car, through<br />

the centre console and onto the<br />

dashboard.<br />

Since its launch, Aero Cowling has<br />

enhanced many Bespoke commissions.<br />

One of the first was the Bayside<br />

Dawn Aero Cowling, commissioned<br />

by a customer in Yokohama,<br />

Japan, to pay tribute to his seafaring<br />

home city. It matched cutting-edge<br />

technical fibre with open-pore teak<br />

Canadel panelling, drawing inspiration<br />

from yacht decking. <strong>The</strong> Aero<br />

Cowling’s colourway evoked blue<br />

seas and white sails in the finest traditions<br />

of Yokohama Bay.<br />

Most recently, Aero Cowling<br />

adorned Dawn Silver Bullet, revealed<br />

in early 2020. Inspired by<br />

rare, glamorous and rakish roadsters<br />

of the <strong>19</strong>20s, this motor car’s<br />

tonneau was finished with an ultra-metallic<br />

silver-painted central<br />

spine and a vapour-blasted titanium<br />

windbreak, etched with the Silver<br />

Bullet nameplate and silhouette.<br />

Aero Cowling is able to amplify a<br />

more striking aesthetic as well as<br />

elegantly contribute to its form.<br />

Arguably, its boldest appearance<br />

was part of the marque’s 20<strong>19</strong> Pebble<br />

Beach Collection where it was<br />

incorporated into a Dawn Black<br />

Badge finished in striking Coral.<br />

This new pastel colour carried over<br />

to the Aero Cowling itself, creating<br />

an appearance reminiscent of the<br />

Speedster two-seater body style so<br />

closely associated with the USA’s<br />

western seaboard.<br />

<strong>The</strong> changes in the CHIRON Pur Sport have been<br />

immense. We have set up a significantly firmer<br />

chassis, modified the camber, shortened the<br />

gear ratio and asked Michelin to develop softer<br />

tires. All these changes require testing, testing,<br />

and more testing as every system has not only to<br />

function perfectly on its own but also to work in<br />

conjunction with the entire vehicle.<br />

Real sports cars deliver extraordinary<br />

driving performance,<br />

but usually have a<br />

somewhat spartan appearance. For<br />

those unwilling to sacrifice any luxury,<br />

space or comfort, the Audi S8<br />

has been available since <strong>19</strong>96, and<br />

as regards acceleration, it can hold<br />

its own against the contemporary<br />

Porsche 911. <strong>The</strong> fourth generation<br />

of the racy luxury limousine came<br />

onto the market in early 2020, with<br />

a powerful V8 bi-turbo petrol engine<br />

delivering 571 hp (420 kW) and<br />

800 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to<br />

100 km/h: 3.8 seconds! As such, it<br />

is faster than a current 992 model.<br />

But can it also compete with even<br />

faster super sports cars? With this<br />

comparison, ABT Sportsline comes<br />

into play with an extremely attractive<br />

performance upgrade.<br />

<strong>The</strong> software of the high-tech ABT<br />

Engine Control unit has been precisely<br />

adapted for this model and<br />

can unleash a hefty 700 hp (515<br />

kW) from the new S8. Maximum<br />

torque increases to 880 Nm. This<br />

amazing power is clearly reflected<br />

in the new performance figures:<br />

Now the traditional standard sprint<br />

from a standing start to 100 km/h<br />

is achieved in 3.4 seconds. For vehicles<br />

equipped with ABT Power<br />

and ceramic brakes, an optional<br />

top speed increase to 270 km/h is<br />

available. <strong>The</strong> 5.18-metre limousine,<br />

weighing over 2.3 tonnes, generally<br />

cuts a fine figure, even when cornering.<br />

This is down to the meticulously<br />

designed standard suspension.<br />

<strong>The</strong> chassis can tilt up to<br />

three degrees when cornering, and<br />

a camera constantly monitors the<br />


Need for<br />

Speed<br />

next 15 metres, to facilitate active<br />

response to any uneven surface.<br />

Aesthetically, the Audi S8 maintains<br />

an elegant, understated appearance.<br />

<strong>The</strong>refore, upon request, ABT<br />

Sportsline adds just one discreet<br />

carbon fibre rear spoiler. Additional<br />

sporty trappings include 20-inch<br />

ABT GR or FR wheels. <strong>The</strong> latter is<br />

also available in 21-inch, as featured<br />

on the pictured vehicle. <strong>The</strong> design<br />

is a particularly attractive interpretation<br />

of the classic five-spoke<br />

design. Its diamond-machined outlines<br />

and mystic black finish provide<br />

an interesting colour contrast.<br />

In turn, the GR features a striking<br />

concave rim well and a glossy<br />

black painted wheel chassis contrasts<br />

with a diamond-machined<br />

rim flange. <strong>The</strong> sporty and elegant<br />

wheel is also available as an alternative<br />

in matt black with an entirely<br />

diamond-machined finish.<br />

From inside too, the owner can<br />

drop subtle hints to his passengers<br />

that they are not travelling in<br />

a standard S8. <strong>The</strong> ABT start-stopswitch-cap<br />

and ABT shift knob cover<br />

make this possible. A step on the<br />

accelerator will remove any doubt.<br />

*<strong>The</strong> engine performance data is in<br />

accordance with the stipulations of<br />

EWG/80/1269. <strong>The</strong> process and dynamometer<br />

manufacturer have been<br />

certified and authorised by the vehicle<br />

Porsche completes its sports car trio in time for<br />

summer: following on from the Coupé and Cabriolet,<br />

the third body variant of the new 911 generation<br />

now makes its debut with the all-wheel drive<br />

911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S models. <strong>The</strong> two new 911<br />

models celebrate their premiere on the Porsche web<br />

TV channel 9:11 <strong>Magazine</strong>.<br />

<strong>The</strong> distinguishing feature of the Targa remains its innovative,<br />

fully automatic roof system and, just like the<br />

legendary original Targa model from <strong>19</strong>65, it features<br />

a characteristic wide roll hoop, a movable roof section<br />

above the front seats and a wraparound rear window.<br />

<strong>The</strong> roof can be comfortably opened and closed in just<br />

<strong>19</strong> seconds.<br />

18<br />

It is powered by a six-cylinder, three-litre boxer engine<br />

with twin turbochargers: the 911 Targa 4 now<br />

delivers 283 kW (385 PS; 911 Targa 4: Combined fuel<br />

consumption 9.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions<br />

223 g/km) and, in combination with the optional Sport<br />

Chrono package, accelerates from zero to 100 km/h<br />

in just 4.2 seconds – one tenth faster than before. <strong>The</strong><br />

engine in the 911 Targa 4S boasts 331 kW (450 PS; 911<br />

Targa 4S: Combined fuel consumption 10.3 - 9.9 l/100<br />

km; combined CO2 emissions 235 - 227 g/km) and<br />

reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 3.6 seconds under<br />

the same conditions – four tenths faster than its predecessor.<br />

Top speed of the 911 Targa 4 is 289 km/h (up<br />

two km/h), while the 4S peaks at 304 km/h (up three<br />

km/h).<br />

Both sports cars are fitted with eight-speed dual-clutch<br />

transmission (PDK) and intelligent all-wheel<br />

drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) as standard<br />

to deliver maximum driving pleasure. Alternatively, the<br />

911 Targa 4S can be ordered with the newly developed<br />

seven-speed manual gearbox, with which the Sport<br />

Chrono package is included. New technology has<br />

also been integrated to extend the range of features<br />

for both 911 models and, for the first time, Porsche<br />

InnoDrive, which includes adaptive cruise control, is<br />

available. Thanks to the enhanced Smartlift function,<br />

ground clearance can be programmed so that it is<br />

raised for everyday use. <strong>The</strong> list of options is supplemented<br />

by an extensive range from Porsche Tequipment<br />

and new personalisation options from Porsche<br />

Exclusive Manufaktur. Porsche will further extend the<br />

combination of traditional style elements, timeless design<br />

and cutting-edge technology in a special edition<br />

of the 911 Targa, which will make its debut in June.<br />

Efficient biturbo boxer engine<br />

Like the 911 Carrera models, both 911 Targa variants<br />

profit from the increase in power provided by the<br />

turbocharged three-litre six-cylinder boxer engines.

Both performance and everyday usability<br />

benefit as a result. <strong>The</strong> engine in the 911 Targa<br />

4 produces 283 kW (385 PS) at 6,500 rpm,<br />

which is 11 kW (15 PS) more than its predecessor.<br />

Maximum torque of 450 newton metres<br />

is delivered across a wide engine speed range<br />

of between 1,950 and 5,000 rpm. With 331 kW<br />

(450 PS), the 911 Targa 4S delivers 22 kW (30<br />

PS) more output than its predecessor and<br />

generates maximum torque of 530 Nm (up 30<br />

Nm) between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm.<br />

Optimised all-wheel drive for better<br />

traction<br />

<strong>The</strong> enhanced performance of the new all-wheel drive<br />

models goes hand-in-hand with further development<br />

of the front-axle drive. <strong>The</strong> clutch and differential<br />

unit is water-cooled and has reinforced clutch discs<br />

for greater robustness and a higher load capacity. <strong>The</strong><br />

increased actuating torque at the clutch improves its<br />

adjustment accuracy and the function of the additional<br />

front-axle drive. Overall, the enhanced front-axle<br />

drive with PTM (Porsche Traction Management) contributes<br />

to even better traction in all road conditions.<br />

Further developed chassis for more comfort<br />

and safety<br />

<strong>The</strong> electronically controlled variable damping system<br />

PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) is<br />

part of the standard equipment on the new 911 Targa<br />

models. This system automatically adjusts the damping<br />

characteristics in terms of driving comfort and handling<br />

to each driving situation and has two manually<br />

adjustable maps, Normal and Sport. Porsche Torque<br />

Need for<br />

Speed<br />

Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which includes an electronic<br />

rear differential lock with fully variable torque<br />

distribution, is added as standard equipment for the<br />

Targa 4S and is available as an option on the Targa 4.<br />

Like the other eighth generation Porsche 911 variants,<br />

the Targa models are also equipped with Porsche Wet<br />

mode as standard. Sensors fitted in the front wheel<br />

housings are capable of detecting water on the road<br />

surface and, if significant volumes of water are picked<br />

up, a signal in the cockpit provides a recommendation<br />

for the driver to manually switch to Wet mode. <strong>The</strong><br />

drive responsiveness is then adapted to the conditions<br />

to guarantee maximum driving stability.<br />

<strong>The</strong> driving dynamics setup for the 911 Targa 4 includes<br />

235/40 ZR tyres on <strong>19</strong>-inch alloy wheels on<br />

the front axle and 295/35 ZR tyres on 20-inch wheels<br />

on the rear axle. As standard, the 4S model is fitted<br />

with 245/35 ZR tyres on its 20-inch front wheels and<br />

305/30 ZR tyres on its 21-inch rears. On the Targa 4,

Need for<br />

Speed<br />

deceleration is taken care of on both axles by 330-millimetre<br />

brake discs with black four-piston monobloc<br />

fixed callipers. <strong>The</strong> red-painted brake callipers on the<br />

Targa 4S have six pistons at the front axle, four at the<br />

rear while its discs measure 350 mm front and rear.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) can be<br />

ordered as an option.<br />

Extravagant Targa design with a modern<br />

interpretation<br />

<strong>The</strong> exterior of the 911 Targa is characterised by the<br />

design elements of its 992 model generation. Compared<br />

to its predecessors, its body features significantly<br />

more pronounced wheel housings at the front<br />

and, between its LED headlights, its bonnet has a distinctive<br />

recess evoking the design of the first 911 generations.<br />

Its rear is dominated by its wider, variably extending<br />

rear spoiler and seamlessly integrated, elegant<br />

light bar. With the exception of the front and rear sections,<br />

the entire outer skin is made from aluminium.<br />

<strong>The</strong> interior echoes the 911 Carrera models and is<br />

characterised by the clear and straight lines of its<br />

dashboard and its recessed instruments. <strong>The</strong> 911<br />

models from the <strong>19</strong>70s provided the inspiration here.<br />

Alongside the central rev counter – very much a defining<br />

feature for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform<br />

displays extend the information provided to the driver.<br />

A compact switch unit with five buttons for direct<br />

access to important vehicle functions is located below<br />

the 10.9-inch centre screen of the Porsche Communication<br />

Management (PCM). <strong>The</strong> standard PCM features<br />

include online navigation based on swarm data<br />

as well as Connect Plus with Apple Car Play®.<br />

<strong>The</strong> model for a new class of sports cars<br />

since <strong>19</strong>65<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>19</strong>65 911 Targa 2.0 was a trailblazer for a whole new<br />

type of car. Originally marketed as a “safety cabriolet<br />

with anti-roll bar”, the Targa, with its detachable roof,<br />

soon established itself as an independent concept and<br />

indeed became a style icon. Right through to the present<br />

day, Porsche has continued to combine two worlds<br />

in the 911 Targa: the advantages of open-top driving in<br />

a cabriolet combined with the everyday comfort and<br />

safety of a coupé.<br />

World premiere on 9:11 <strong>Magazine</strong> web TV<br />

channel<br />

For the first time the sports car manufacturer unveils<br />

the new 911 Targa to a global audience on its own web<br />

TV channel. Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President<br />

Model Lines 911 and 718, explains the car’s new features<br />

along with Porsche Brand Ambassadors, tennis<br />

star Maria Sharapova and racing driver Jörg Bergmeister<br />

<strong>The</strong> Mercedes vehicle range is dynamic as never<br />

before, and the expressive body designs also<br />

have great appeal. And yet, the era of the W140,<br />

W126, W124, Mercedes <strong>19</strong>0 and Co. was regarded as a<br />

golden age by many, as Sportservice Lorinser knows.<br />

<strong>The</strong> worldwide renowned German tuner for cars with<br />

the star now bridges the gap between the eras with<br />

the extremely attractive new LM2R alloy wheel.<br />

“With the Lorinser LO we recently revived a rim model<br />

from our company history for vintage and classic<br />

cars in virtually the original design,” Managing Director<br />

Marcus Lorinser explains. “After owners of current<br />

Mercedes models also repeatedly asked about<br />

the alloy wheel, we have now designed a completely<br />

new retro rim especially for this target group. It was<br />

important to us, however, that this should not just be<br />

a copy.” <strong>The</strong> designers consequently adopted a basic<br />

layout from the early <strong>19</strong>90s and revised it for the present.<br />

<strong>The</strong> result looks right up-to-date, especially with<br />

the changed proportions in combination with extreme<br />

low-profile tires. In addition, the LM2R is only available<br />

in a gigantic 21-inch size. “That was unimaginable<br />

nearly 30 years ago,” Lorinser remembers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> organic, soft shapes are typical for the spirit of the<br />

<strong>19</strong>90s. <strong>The</strong> large center area has a clever arch which<br />

makes it appear is if it is suspended from the short<br />

mock double spokes – similar to a tent roof. With the<br />

recessed rim flange and the spoke ends, which appear<br />

as if split, the design pays homage to the present.<br />

Overall, the designers created a very dynamic, powerful<br />

and lively one-piece wheel. <strong>The</strong> large surfaces – a<br />

quite rare feature today – contribute to an immense<br />

presence and give a luxurious and self-confident appearance<br />

to the wheel, which is available either in<br />

hypersilver or in black. <strong>The</strong> Lorinser LM2R therefore<br />

perfectly underlines the commanding aura of highgrade<br />

cars such as a Mercedes S-Class.<br />

Lorinser LM2R alloy wheels<br />

Design: one-piece, cast<br />

Dimensions: 9 x 21 or 10.5 x 21 inch<br />

What is the history behind the Baravia<br />

brand?<br />

I have always wanted to make a name for myself<br />

across the Arab World. My passion for<br />

fashion led me to open up a business in the<br />

fashion industry. I want to create my style<br />

and share with others especially those who<br />

are stuck up and having a hard time choosing<br />

which kind of dress fits them. I launched Baravia<br />

Fashion in 2018.<br />

Given the current global crisis,<br />

how does it feel like to be a contributor<br />

to an industry that promotes<br />

wellness?<br />

It feels great that I was able to help and contribute.<br />

Nowadays, consumers are placing<br />

more value on health and wellness. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

days, looking great and feeling good are the<br />

new luxuries that consumers want to enjoy<br />

and flaunt.<br />

What inspires you to create products<br />

and services with high demand<br />

in the affluent market?<br />

My main inspiration is my family of course.<br />

My second drive is my passion for designing<br />

and creating elegant and glamorous outfits.<br />

And also I got inspired by the fascinating life<br />

story of the famous Coco Chanel.<br />

How can you compare fashion and<br />

beauty between then and now?<br />

Fashion evolves and constantly changes over<br />

time. As people progressed through time, so<br />

did their fashion style & statements. Fashion<br />

has changed dramatically but has also kept<br />

trends from the past very much alive. Fashion<br />

is on a never-ending tidal wave of change<br />

and revival. Fashion today is still highly influenced<br />

by what inspires society.<br />

need to be innovative to create a competitive<br />

advantage for your business. Lastly, it is persistence.<br />

You must commit to your vision and<br />

goals no matter what challenges you face. If<br />

you give up too soon, you might miss the opportunity<br />

that was just right in front of you.<br />

What is the definition of true beauty<br />

to you?<br />

Beauty for me doesn’t only refer to the physical<br />

appearance, but with the internal beauty<br />

of a person, which depends on her thoughts,<br />

action, and character. External beauty has a<br />

value, but internal beauty dominates it. I believe<br />

beauty is about goodness to others, in<br />

addition to physical appearance.<br />

What do you think separates Baravia<br />

from other fashion labels?<br />

We take pride in providing high-quality<br />

products and we are striving to provide exceptional<br />

service. Also, our passion for making<br />

dresses where we commit our heart and<br />

mind and our limitless creativity, as well.<br />

What do you think are the top<br />

3 characteristics a good leader<br />

needs to have for their business to<br />

succeed?<br />

For me, first, it is passion. When a team leader<br />

is filled with passion, it spreads to the team,<br />

making them work harder to match the passion<br />

of the leader. Second is innovation. You<br />

How do you visualize your luxury<br />

land in Hollywood, seeing my collection being<br />

worn at the Oscars and Cannes.<br />

Can you give our readers some fashion<br />

style tips that will never fade<br />

Trends come and go, but a classic look will<br />

never fade. I’m sure a lot of designers agree<br />

with me. You can never go wrong with a ‘little<br />

black dress.’ It makes you feel classy and<br />

sophisticated with the utmost effortlessness.<br />

Heesen Yachts are pleased to introduce YN<strong>19</strong>550 Project Altea,<br />

a 50-metre FDHF all aluminium motor yacht below<br />

500GT and the second yacht built on the design and engineering<br />

platform of Nova Plus. Altea offers fast yet highly efficient<br />

performance thanks to her FDHF aluminium hull with a<br />

shallow draft of just 2.15 metres. Her contemporary exterior design,<br />

by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, showcases a profile<br />

characterised by a long waterline and floor-to-ceiling windows. A<br />

gently reversed stem with spray rails gives her a distinctive look.<br />

Thanks to two MTU 12V 2000 M72 main engines of 1,080kW each,<br />

she will reach a top speed of <strong>19</strong>.5 knots and will have a range of<br />

3,750 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. <strong>The</strong>se characteristics<br />

make Project Altea one of the fastest and most economical<br />

motor yachts in her class.<br />

Twelve guests will enjoy almost 350 square meters of interior<br />

space. <strong>The</strong>y will be accommodated in six elegant staterooms and<br />

will be discreetly serviced by nine crew in five cabins. Italian designer<br />

Cristiano Gatto created a tranquil and warm interior design,<br />

a crowd-pleaser décor that invites guests to relax and unwind<br />

after an active day at sea.<br />

Stained Canaletto and American walnut are the main veneers<br />

used for both flooring and walls. Textured leathers and custom<br />

carpets by <strong>Luxury</strong> Pride deliver a tactile experience and add a<br />

third dimension to the opulent interior design. Gatto and his<br />

team have created bespoke soft furnishings that add a sense of<br />

comfort and exclusivity. Top tier materials, such as silk and velvet,<br />

are paired with fine details and leather trims to create an<br />

elegant and unconventional contrast.<br />

<strong>The</strong> fine cabinetry company, Heesen Interiors, recently completed<br />

the interior mock-up. Clients can now get a real feel for materials,<br />

finishes and lighting exactly as they will be built. In addition,<br />

the one-to-one mock-up offers the unique opportunity to test<br />

and perfect the precise engineering behind the sophisticated interior<br />

construction. This will result in more rigorous and efficient<br />

construction and installation timings.<br />

Project Altea is on schedule and available for delivery in Spring<br />

2021.<br />

High quality and sophisticated service combined with authenticity and personal<br />

care is one of the highest maxims of Kempinski Hotels. To provide the<br />

most outstanding level of service and guest comfort even during and after<br />

the current situation, the international luxury hotel group with European roots<br />

has launched the “Kempinski White Glove Service”. In light of the fact that some of<br />

the closed Kempinski Hotels have now reopened their doors, the Kempinski operational<br />

strategy and quality management team has launched this extensive service<br />

covering all areas of the luxury hotels while keeping in line with the regional safety<br />

and health regulations as a top priority.<br />


Destination<br />

Unlocked<br />

“It is crucial to us to continue delivering service on the highest level true to our<br />

Kempinski heritage as this is what we stand for”, explains Benedikt Jaschke, Chief<br />

Quality Officer and Member of the Kempinski Management Board. “While we need<br />

to give guests full confidence in the cleanliness and disinfection of our premises<br />

and reflect the seriousness of the current situation in all aspects of our daily<br />

operation, we are eager to continue and even surpass our dedicated service à la<br />

Kempinski.”<br />

To fully support the execution of the “Kempinski White Glove Service”, an extremely<br />

comprehensive guidebook has been launched by the operational strategy and<br />

quality management team. <strong>The</strong> 50 pages guidebook meticulously treats any kind<br />

of measures to be taken in all departments of the luxurious hotels ranging from<br />

arrival of the guests to set-up of public areas, food & beverage to housekeeping<br />

as well as spa areas to meeting spaces. When it comes to the employees, they will<br />

from now on be carrying gloves during all guest interactions as well as in compliance<br />

with government regulations and advice masks, which have been produced<br />

for Kempinski by Italian hotel uniform designer Maurel, carrying the patterns of the<br />

Kempinski flower print. Part of the amenities in all guest rooms will be mini hand<br />

sanitisers as well as guest masks. While hotel teams obviously have to keep their<br />

distance to the guests of at least 1.5 metres, all furniture in public areas has to be<br />

rearranged to keep social distancing rules for the convenience of guests. Enhanced<br />

cleaning plans are provided by hygiene products supplier Diversey through wall<br />

charts and online guidelines to visualise step by step the flow of disinfection and<br />

cleaning of all hotel areas. Sanitising stations will be spread throughout each hotel,<br />

key cards will be disinfected before and after usage, cloth towels in public toilets<br />

replaced by one-time-usage disposable towels and professional air purifiers provide<br />

clean and fresh air.<br />

Absolute privacy is offered to guests who upon check-in and during their stay decide<br />

not to allow any hotel team member to enter their room during their full stay<br />

period at the hotel. While usually a “Do not disturb” sign is used temporarily, the<br />

new “Privacy” sign assures that requested services will still be handled, but in front<br />

of the guest’s room door.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> list of measures to be taken is long and very complex”, adds Benedikt Jaschke.<br />

“But appropriate and strictest hygienic standards on a very high level are key to<br />

reassuring our valued guests that a stay at any Kempinski hotel worldwide during<br />

or post coronavirus lockdown offers an environment of full safety in any respect<br />

without sacrificing our high standards of professional luxury service.”<br />

Procedures are of course not restricted to guest services, but also apply to back of<br />

the house areas such as the employee restaurant. To limit the number of employees<br />

having their breaks at the same time, service hours of the canteen for example will<br />

be extended, some tables and chairs will be blocked to grant space and boxed meals<br />

can be offered as an alternative to be consumed at office desks.<br />

Gulfstream is moving the entire business-jet industry<br />

forward with advanced safety features, tomorrow’s<br />

technology and a cabin purposefully designed to exceed<br />

<strong>The</strong> G700 was introduced as the new industry flagship<br />

in October 20<strong>19</strong> with a full-scale cabin mock-up and<br />

an aircraft taxiing under its own power. <strong>The</strong> program<br />

includes five already manufactured flight-test aircraft<br />

Médis, France – VoltAero revealed the production configuration for its Cassio aircraft, which will revolutionize<br />

general aviation with a highly efficient, safe and optimized family of airplanes powered by the<br />

company’s hybrid-electric power module.<br />

Cassio utilizes VoltAero’s hybrid-electric power module in an aft fuselage “pusher” configuration, integrating a<br />

cluster of electric motors with a high-performance internal combustion engine that serves as the range extender.<br />

<strong>The</strong> powertrain currently is being validated on VoltAero’s Cassio 1 flight test aircraft, ensuring a high level of<br />

maturity for certification and production.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Cassio production design’s unveiling represents the latest step in our realistic and highly pragmatic creation<br />

of an all-new aircraft family,” said Jean Botti, VoltAero’s CEO and Chief Technical Officer. “It benefits from<br />

our team’s unmatched experience in hybrid-electric aviation, as well as the ongoing full-scale flight testing that<br />

removes the risk as we move toward the production phase.”<br />

VoltAero’s proprietary Cassio design is based on a sleek, aerodynamically-optimized fuselage, a forward fixed<br />

canard, and an aft-set wing with twin booms that support a high-set horizontal tail.<br />

Cassio aircraft will be produced at a purpose-built final assembly line in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region of southwest<br />

France, with VoltAero leading a world-class team of partners and suppliers. Licensed production opportunities<br />

will be pursued in North America and Asia.<br />

Initial deliveries are targeted for the end of 2022, beginning with the four-seat Cassio 330 version.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Cassio family of airplanes is tailored for operation by private owners, air taxi/charter companies, in commercial<br />

flights for point-to-point regional travel, and in various utility-category applications. Cassio will be<br />

certified to Europe’s EASA CS23 certification specification as a single-engine, general aviation category aircraft.<br />

38<br />

Cassio will be offered in three versions, each sharing a high degree of modularity and commonality:<br />

- Cassio 330, a four-seat configuration with propulsion from a combined hybrid-electric power of 330 kilowatts;<br />

- Cassio 480, configured with six seats and a hybrid-electric propulsion power of 480 kilowatts;<br />

- Cassio 600, with a 10-seat capacity and hybrid-electric propulsion power of 600 kilowatts.

Today, the Graff Foundation will donate US$1 million<br />

to the COVID-<strong>19</strong> Solidarity Response Fund in support<br />

of WHO, which is leading and coordinating the global<br />

efforts to detect and respond to the pandemic.<br />

<strong>The</strong> donation will aid the Fund’s critical work tracking<br />

and understanding the spread of the virus; mobilising<br />

resources; ensuring patients are given the correct care<br />

and frontline workers have access to essential supplies<br />

and information; and accelerating the development of<br />

vaccines, tests and treatments.<br />

<strong>The</strong> COVID-<strong>19</strong> Solidarity Response Fund was set up at<br />

WHO’s request by the United Nations Foundation and<br />

the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation. <strong>The</strong> Graff Foundation<br />

donation is being made through the UN Foundation.<br />

<strong>The</strong> majority of financial resources from the Fund are<br />

targeted at the most vulnerable and at-risk countries,<br />

which are prioritised according to greatest need on a<br />

week by week basis. As of the beginning of April 2020,<br />

the COVID-<strong>19</strong> Solidarity Response Fund has bought<br />

and shipped PPE to 75 countries; supplied close to 1.8<br />

million diagnostic kits to 126 countries; created and<br />

distributed technical and public health information to<br />

millions; and supported drug trials that may help save<br />

the lives of those worst affected by COVID-<strong>19</strong>.<br />

“COVID-<strong>19</strong> is a textbook example of a global problem<br />

that requires global cooperation,” said Elizabeth Cousens,<br />

President & CEO of the UN Foundation. “I thank<br />

Graff for their commitment to the COVID-<strong>19</strong> Solidarity<br />

Response Fund – it could not be more clear that we need<br />

to work together across sectors to fight this pandemic.”<br />

Francois Graff, trustee of the Graff Foundation, on behalf of the Graff family:<br />

“<strong>The</strong> challenge presented by the pandemic has had a profound effect on all of us at Graff.<br />

As an international business, it has been terrible to witness the speed with which the virus<br />

has spread, and the pain and uncertainty it is causing throughout the world. <strong>The</strong> COVID-<strong>19</strong><br />

Solidarity Response Fund is a vital tool in the global response to the virus. We are proud to<br />

contribute to its life-saving work and support the medical community and key workers who<br />

are heroically devoting their lives to caring for others during this global crisis.”<br />

Seba Jamal’s Creative Vision<br />

GIA Certified Jewelry Professional I Founder & Designer <strong>Luxury</strong> Collection<br />

Dubai, United Arab Emirates<br />

“Right from the beginning, I ensure that my creations are unique and bore no<br />

similarity to the already available designs in the market.<br />

This is why I stressed on the word UNIQUE in most of my designs and name<br />

them accordingly. My second objective is the look of the jewelry. As I always<br />

wanted my designs to be the best examples of fine jewelry, that reinstates the<br />

fashion quotient.<br />

I always strive to create contemporary designs that stand out from the traditional<br />

designs available in the final jewelry series.”

“Tree Of Life Collection”<br />

“Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death. - William Blake<br />

This collection was born from the face that nature provides us with best<br />

solace, in life. We often look to nature, which is God’s best.<br />

<strong>The</strong> line is an outcome of years of in-depth research, studying into art<br />

which stands for testimony to Seba’s underlying passion for the craft.<br />

Seba’s <strong>Luxury</strong> Car Collection<br />

“Seba Jamal for <strong>Luxury</strong> Car Collection” features a two piece<br />

set consisting of a ring and bracelet, both of which are<br />

designed to target high-profile consumers who prefer jewelry<br />

which speaks status.<br />

<strong>The</strong> “<strong>Luxury</strong> Car” logo acts as the center of design, paved with<br />

diamonds, layering, on a structure that opens, to incorporate<br />

the chip, giving the user the commodity of not having the<br />

constant search of their keys.<br />

“Redefining the way you style”<br />

A sophisticated, aesthetic driven individual with an amazing passion for<br />

Art & Design has helped the jewelry designer Seba Jamal, carve a niche<br />

for herself in the jewelry design industry.<br />

<strong>The</strong> line is an outcome of years of in-depth research, studying into art<br />

Passion for<br />

Fashion<br />



In a world surrounded by the coronavirus and trends<br />

predicting what comes next, let’s take a look at all the<br />

major historical events that changed the face of fashion<br />

as we know it today.<br />

It’s a known phenomenon that fashion is greatly influenced<br />

by history, pop culture, celebrities, musicians,<br />

aristocrats, movies, shows, books, and the likes. From<br />

corsets to bell-bottoms, the length of the skirt to size of<br />

the heels, everything that we see today has a tinge of history<br />

associated with it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> onset of Corsets: With narrowed waistlines and<br />

hourglass figures trending throughout the middle ages,<br />

corsets did more damage to the female body than add<br />

beauty. But as the French Revolution came to an end,<br />

traditional corsets faded and shapewear became more<br />

popular until very recently, they made a comeback on the<br />

runway.<br />

Genes of Jeans: Jeans and overalls were used by workers<br />

or miners because of the durability of fabric and pockets<br />

to store tools until Levi Strauss in 1871 commercialized<br />

it and as of today literally every person owns a pair of<br />

jeans!<br />

World War I: As men went to war and women moved out<br />

of homes to work, comfort became a priority and long<br />

skirts moved out to make way trousers for workplace,<br />

with Coco Chanel being the revolutionary designer who<br />

borrowed her boyfriend’s suits and wore sailor pants as<br />

she began designing trousers for women.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Great Depression: As hemlines grew higher, the<br />

market fell lower, with the stock market crash in <strong>19</strong>29.<br />

This influenced the trends to become more narrow and<br />

58<br />

conservative, but with Hollywood being idolized sparkle,<br />

velvet, fur, and everything luxury was in demand.<br />

World War II: With the onset of the second world war,<br />

everything lost its luster, materials became rare and<br />

even illegal, and clothes were being made from whatever<br />

materials were found at home. Darker colors and fewer<br />

prints were seen.<br />

Prêt-à-porter: <strong>The</strong> French term for ‘ready-to-wear’ set<br />

in as everything became made to order. This reinvented<br />

the way people consumed fashion as standard sizes were<br />

invented and fashion for the masses became a thing.<br />

Minis and more: As the feminist movements grew more<br />

popular, mini skirts became a symbol and icon of women’s<br />

freedom and rights. Followed by hipster trends where<br />

bright colors and prints were all around, followed by hiphop<br />

styles that were revolutionized by Dapper Dan.<br />

Street Savvy: <strong>The</strong> new decade of the 21st century began<br />

with street style. <strong>The</strong> more ‘real’ and basic style of<br />

the public began catching people’s eyes than just the<br />

Avant-Garde shimmery celebrity styles.<br />

Plus Size Movement: As the Wall Street crashed and<br />

numbers on the stock market dived deeper, plus size<br />

fashion rose its voice with limited retailers and e-tailers<br />

representing them. This trend still continues, more evidently<br />

with collective responsibility by brands on and<br />

off the runway. Hashtags like ‘#effyourbeautystandards’<br />

and ‘#celebratemysize’ gained popularity on social media<br />

while more plus-sized models walked on the runway.<br />

Sustainability and Minimalism: Amidst global warming<br />

and climate change concerns, people became more

Passion for<br />

Fashion<br />

conscious of what they consumed and brands shifted to<br />

greener value chains. Minimalistic style and athleisure<br />

came into fashion with ‘less is more’ and being fit ideology<br />

on people’s minds, as opposed to extravagance in the<br />

past.<br />

Blogger Bandwagon: With the surge in usage of social<br />

media, bloggers and influencers became, and still are<br />

fashion icons. With millions of followers on social media<br />

and followers resonating with their style, this trend is for<br />

sure to stay.<br />

Quarantimes: <strong>The</strong> onset of the Coronavirus Pandemic<br />

led locked the entire world down. People are inside their<br />

homes, masks, gloves, and sanitizers have become essentials<br />

and maybe even fashion. As stores close, brands have<br />

shifted online and welcomed digitalisation to keep themselves<br />

going.<br />

History is evidence that the world has time and again<br />

faced a difficult situation. As humans we have gone<br />

through so much with the motive to ‘Improvise, Overcome<br />

and Adapt.’ More so to take advantage of that as an<br />

opportunity to learn and make way for newer and better<br />

things. And as for the current pandemic, we will emerge<br />

from it as more conscious, awakened, and more skilled<br />

people, because fashion changes but style remain eternal.<br />

When everything is uncertain,<br />

everything that is important<br />

becomes clear. In 2020, the<br />

answer is clear: being well is a prerequisite<br />

to doing well. Ownership does<br />

not equate to success in the minds of<br />

the new luxury clientele anymore, because<br />

the ultimate aspirational product<br />

today is self-improvement.<br />

Spanning across sectors like beauty,<br />

fitness, travel & fashion, is one of<br />

the world’s fastest-growing market<br />

segments, the new megatrend that is<br />

growing exponentially: the wellness<br />

industry. In this article, we will dive<br />

into how the principles of luxury are<br />

changing the focus to self-transformation<br />

& wellness. According to the<br />

Global Wellness Institute, the health<br />

& wellness market reached $4.2 trillion<br />

in 2018, which signifies the remarkable<br />

growth of health-conscious<br />

spenders around the world. Data by<br />

Statista suggests that during that same<br />

time, the market size of Personal care,<br />

beauty, and anti-aging was a whopping<br />

$1,082.9 billion with athleisure fashion<br />

and wellness tourism industries are<br />

expected to grow at an annual growth<br />

rate of 6.5 percent. One of the driving<br />

forces behind this disruptive growth<br />

is Millennials, the changing appetites<br />

of this generation have skewed away<br />

from material goods to experiential and<br />

transformative goods and services.<br />

From sustainable smart homes to<br />

conscious beauty, sustainability, and<br />

healthier lifestyle choices, the millennial<br />

generation is causing a seismic shift<br />

across all industries. A ColdwellBanker<br />

report shows how millennials have<br />

seen a boost in both buying power and<br />

population. In fact, by 2030, research<br />

estimates that millennials will hold<br />

five times as much wealth as they have<br />

today, giving them significant power in<br />

shaping future luxury trends. Driven<br />

by these Millennials, along with social<br />

media and online DTC retail, wellness<br />

brands are seeing unprecedented<br />

growth in their respective industries, as<br />

High Net-Worth Individuals and Ultra<br />

High Net-Worth Individuals across the<br />

world are willing to pay a premium for<br />

perceived wellness solutions.<br />

Daniel Langer from Jing Daily, provides<br />

data-driven insights from China,<br />

where COVID-<strong>19</strong> is gradually getting<br />

better. <strong>The</strong> article shares an important<br />

message on how health and wellbeing<br />

is already a megatrend in China that<br />

touches all aspects of life, from mental<br />

wellbeing to organic cosmetics and<br />

nutrition. Consumers are placing more<br />

value on a holistic approach rather than<br />

a hedonistic one.<br />

In a series on the future of wellness<br />

in luxury, Florine Eppe Beauloye and<br />

Samantha Woodworth from Luxe<br />

Digital, write about the deep desire for<br />

health and wellness that is radically<br />

reshaping what luxury brands need to<br />

offer to their consumers and how they<br />

communicate the value of their goods<br />

and service. Advancements in medicine,<br />

healthier lifestyle choices, and health<br />

trackers are profoundly rebuilding<br />

luxury and redefining consumers’ expectations<br />

from brands and businesses<br />

everywhere. Companies will now have<br />

to prepare safety measures for store<br />

re-openings and provide positive reactions<br />

through fostering the power of<br />

community and loyalty programs. With<br />

experiential retail offerings replacing<br />

traditional formats, it’s clear that health<br />

has now become the new wealth.<br />

mentorships so that they can successfully transition to<br />

the workforce.<br />

Lalique and <strong>The</strong> Macallan launched <strong>The</strong> Golden<br />

Age of Travel series in 2015. It revives<br />

the glory years of the <strong>19</strong>30s – the first era<br />

of international travel by road, rail, sea and, in<br />

particular, air. <strong>The</strong> fifth and final limited-edition<br />

Lalique decanter contains a rare single malt from<br />

<strong>The</strong> Macallan, distilled in <strong>19</strong>40 and bottled for the<br />

first time in <strong>19</strong>75. In 20<strong>19</strong> it was transferred into<br />

50 exclusive Lalique crystal decanters which portray<br />

one of the historic flying machines – the majestic<br />

airship.<br />

Fully embracing the spirit of <strong>The</strong> Golden Age of<br />

Travel, the flat shape of the decanter is reminiscent<br />

of a hip flask, still a “good friend” to have<br />

with you on a journey today. <strong>The</strong> wind rose design<br />

on the stopper recalls a compass, the instrument<br />

that for centuries has given guidance to travellers<br />

on land, on the seas and in the air.<br />

Among the few people to have tasted this<br />

high-percentage elixir is Polly Logan, Whisky<br />

Maker at <strong>The</strong> Macallan. Her response is enthusiastic:<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Macallan <strong>19</strong>40 is an exceptional liquid<br />

that is a testament to <strong>The</strong> Golden Age of Travel,<br />

and the period of glamour and style it represents.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first reveal of the character of the whisky<br />

comes through the antique oak colour, and on the<br />

nose an atmospheric smoked oak with a richness<br />

of orange oil and dried fruits, exquisitely balanced<br />

with a beautifully light floral note of spring blossoms.<br />

Beyond this initial delight smoked oak features<br />

on the palate with elements of opulent dark<br />

chocolate and orange, with just a hint of sweet<br />

ginger. <strong>The</strong> finish is long and lingering, like the<br />

memories of the passengers that travelled during<br />

this era, reliving the experience in all its glory.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> decanter will have a recommended retail<br />

price of $50,000 and will be available from early<br />

2020. Forty-eight decanters will be sold worldwide,<br />

with two others set aside for storage in the<br />

archives at <strong>The</strong> Macallan and Lalique. <strong>The</strong> unique<br />

limitededition decanter is exclusive to Global<br />

Travel Retail and <strong>The</strong> Macallan Boutiques located<br />

in selected airports around the world.<br />

For further information visit www.themacallan.com<br />

Each limited-edition decanter in the series is<br />

encased within a beautiful premium leather presentation<br />

box created by leather masters Piñavall<br />

in Ubrique, Spain. Piñavall is renowned for their<br />

work with some of the world’s leading fashion<br />

brands. In keeping with the <strong>The</strong> Golden Age of<br />

Travel idea, the box consciously evokes design elements<br />

of classic <strong>19</strong>30’s travel trunks.<br />

A Penny for<br />

your Thoughts<br />

To overcome this crisis, <strong>Luxury</strong> only<br />

depends on itself.<br />

As the COVID-<strong>19</strong> pandemic changed lives, livelihoods,<br />

and businesses upsidedown, uncertainty is running<br />

high on the luxury industry. <strong>The</strong> lockdown and economic<br />

freeze stroke hard in many sectors, such as<br />

hospitality, gastronomy, and fashion. Sales dropped<br />

sharply and many businesses are wondering if they<br />

will be able to ever come back after the pandemic is<br />

gone. <strong>Luxury</strong> leaders are already thinking ahead, trying<br />

to understand which strategies need to be implemented<br />

from now on, to secure business. And while<br />

many are wondering how different consumer behavior<br />

will be in the future and how business should position<br />

itself, brands who have stayed loyal to the core principles<br />

of luxury are the ones at the pole-position to exit<br />

this crisis stronger than before.<br />

“Forget about positioning, luxury is not comparative.”<br />

Jean-Noel Kapferer, on his extraordinary book <strong>Luxury</strong><br />

Strategy, perfectly describes why traditional marketing<br />

tools can be harmful to luxury. <strong>The</strong> former is<br />

what we see classic brands applying to create a preference<br />

over other brands, depending on the market<br />

context, competitors, and consumers’ expectations.<br />

On the other hand, what really counts to luxury is not<br />

the comparison to other brands, but its capacity to<br />

be unique. Even in this critical period, luxury brands<br />

must maintain their statement of who I am rather than<br />

I am depending on. In fashion, what made Christian<br />

Louboutin‘s image was its red-bottomed shoes, the integrity<br />

of the designer’s vision, the craftsmanship, the<br />

sense of fashion-icon symbol; it wasn’t its comparison<br />

with any other shoe designer. It is the same timelessness<br />

authenticity of Dior and Chanel – an identity that<br />

is “not divisible, it is not negotiable – it simply is”.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are no signs that the will for consumers to buy<br />

luxury products has decreased. On the contrary, if a<br />

business has the capacity to create an emotional – and<br />

sometimes obsessive – link between the consumer<br />

and the brand’s identity, sales will continue to be in<br />

temporal as Hermès proved by selling 2.5 million dollars<br />

of goods on the first day of re-opening after lockdown.<br />

That principle of obsessive connection is also<br />

the main reason why luxury brands will never be able<br />

to keep themselves exclusively on-line. People will always<br />

have the need for the human-led and in-person<br />

experience, especially now that human contact is itself<br />

a luxury good. And with new sanitary rules stating<br />

that shopping in a physical store can be made only by<br />

appointment or with a limit of people inside a store, it<br />

will only force some brands to provide more private,<br />

personalized, and unique experiences to consumers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> same principles apply to the luxury hospitality industry.<br />

Now that most brands have been questioning<br />

themselves on how they will adapt to this new idea of<br />

social distancing and safety, some properties, like the<br />

Hotel Esencia in Mexico, or Le Bijou in Switzerland,<br />

have shown that the increase on demand for highsafe,<br />

private and exclusive places is the best thing that<br />

could have to happen to business; and that hotels and<br />

restaurants must now be thinking on how to become<br />

more superlative rather than only comparable – because<br />

that is what luxury is all about. Le Bijou facilities<br />

provide stays which include nurse around the<br />

clock or COVID-<strong>19</strong> testing, along with guest in- control<br />

of private dining or home office tools. Hotel Esencia<br />

maintained their exclusive services while improving<br />

their sense of safety by reinforcing their cleaning<br />

procedures and providing self-protective equipment<br />

to their employees to be used on service. Despite the<br />

bunch of criticism for staying open, these hotels – like<br />

others – preferred to be faithful to an identity (and to<br />

their consumers) rather than to be worried about what<br />

others were doing. And they are being successful.<br />

Those are just a few out of many examples on how to understand<br />

that, at times of social change, brands should<br />

not fall in the flaws of traditional marketing as the answer<br />

to fit in. <strong>Luxury</strong> brands should not think about<br />

fitting in, because they don’t have to. Even if there are<br />

restrictions, norms or attempts to impose any kind of<br />

limitations, those must always be seen as opportunities<br />

to go beyond everything else, because the same principle<br />

that drove luxury since the beginning of history,<br />

was the same from a couple of months ago and will still<br />

be the same today: “<strong>Luxury</strong> is above all social dynamics.”<br />

to, hiring a private<br />

jet is one of the best<br />

ways to do.<br />

<strong>The</strong> wealthy people are<br />

beginning to take off to<br />

the skies again. <strong>The</strong>refore,<br />

the private jet sector<br />

is the only one that<br />

wasn’t heavily affected<br />

in the travel industry by<br />

the current crisis and<br />

this field was bound to<br />

bounce back faster than<br />

commercial airlines.<br />

According to Alain<br />

Leboursier, Director<br />

of Sales at Luna<br />

Jets, there’s been an<br />

“impressive increase”<br />

in bookings<br />

and enquiries from<br />

passengers in recent<br />

weeks, correlating<br />

with heightened<br />

concerns surrounding<br />

COVID-<strong>19</strong>. In<br />

February, about 15%<br />

of overall requests<br />

were related to coronavirus,<br />

Leboursier<br />

says. That’s now<br />

doubled to 30%.<br />

Private Jet companies are doing their best to provide<br />

their customers with the latest information on traveling<br />

restrictions during the Coronavirus (COVID-<strong>19</strong>) outbreak.<br />

As a frequent traveler and from a health and safety perspective,<br />

I want to avoid crowded airports and planes.<br />

Thankfully, private jet companies offer a number of benefits<br />

more than commercial flights do. One of the priceless<br />

benefits is the exclusivity of your flight. When you<br />

book a private jet flight, you have the power to control<br />

how many flight companions you want to take with you.<br />

In addition, private jets fly from private or VIP terminals.<br />

Hence, you do not get exposed to an overcrowded<br />

commercial airport lounge. And therefore, you can go<br />

through security procedures faster, without having to<br />

wait in long exhausting queues.<br />

Private jet travel has always been a way to enjoy the luxuries<br />

of life. However, due to the uncertain and risky<br />

health crisis globally, it has now become a safe and essential<br />

option for travelers.<br />

In conclusion, private jet travel is time-saving, convenient,<br />

flexible, luxury serviced, it reduces risk and stress.<br />

If you have the financial means, why will you take the risk<br />

of traveling commercial? Fly private!<br />

TEM<br />

Southport, England – iFi’s new<br />

wireless music system, the Aurora,<br />

brings together a unique<br />

collection of proprietary technologies<br />

to deliver a sonic experience<br />

unlike any other table- top, all-inone<br />

system.<br />

Clad in bamboo and elevated by a<br />

distinctive aluminium frame, the<br />

Aurora’s design is striking. <strong>The</strong> aesthetic<br />

was created by French product<br />

designer Julien Haziza, inspired<br />

by the architecture in Tokyo’s Omotesandō<br />

and Harajuku districts. Six<br />

drive units nestle behind the bamboo<br />

fins that curve around the Aurora’s<br />

sides, with a further two bass<br />

radiators underneath. <strong>The</strong> system’s<br />

control panel sits front and centre,<br />

with touch-sensitive controls and<br />

an OLED display inlaid with bamboo.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aurora’s name is inspired by<br />

its sound. It delivers a remarkably<br />

expansive soundstage, tailored to<br />

the space in which it sits. It fills the<br />

room with sound as the Aurora Borealis<br />

fills the sky with light, electrifying<br />

your music and immersing you<br />

in the performance of your favourite<br />

artists.<br />

Well connected<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aurora connects to a home Wi-<br />

Fi network, enabling users to stream<br />

88<br />

music via their favourite apps, or<br />

play audio files stored on networked<br />

devices such as computers and NAS<br />

drives. Bluetooth is also included,<br />

so that users may stream directly<br />

from any smart device.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Aurora is hi-res audio enabled,<br />

supporting data up to<br />

32-bit/<strong>19</strong>2kHz without conversion<br />

or down-sampling via Wi-Fi, USB or<br />

Ethernet cable. Bluetooth streaming<br />

also delivers much better sound<br />

quality than is typically the case,

Tech<br />

Trends<br />

engineered by iFi to be less ‘lossy’<br />

than off-the-shelf Bluetooth solutions.<br />

All the latest 24-bit-capable Bluetooth<br />

audio formats are supported,<br />

including Qualcomm’s aptX Adaptive<br />

and aptX HD, Sony’s LDAC and<br />

Huawei’s HWA. Other codecs covered<br />

include regular aptX and aptX<br />

Low Latency, AAC (the favoured format<br />

of Apple iOS devices) and SBC<br />

(the ‘plain vanilla’ Bluetooth codec).<br />

Connecting to a Wi-Fi network<br />

couldn’t be simpler, with push-but-<br />

ton WPS set-up. Linkplay’s MUZO<br />

Player app – or any UPnP/DLNA<br />

streaming app – may be used to<br />

configure the system and control<br />

music. AirPlay and Spotify Connect<br />

are also supported.<br />

Several Auroras may be linked together<br />

on a Wi-Fi network to make a<br />

seamless multi-room system, playing<br />

in-sync or controlled individually.<br />

Whether streaming music from<br />

services such as Spotify or Tidal, or<br />

surfing the thousands of internet<br />

radio stations available from an app<br />

such as TuneIn, the Aurora has your<br />

digital audio lifestyle covered.<br />

Music amplified by PureEmotion<br />

At the Aurora’s heart lies proprietary<br />

amp technology that iFi calls ‘PureEmotion’<br />

– a hybrid circuit design<br />

comprising several key stages. <strong>The</strong><br />

first of these – the preamp stage –<br />

incorporates a Russian 6N3P valve<br />

(visible through a window next to<br />

the OLED display). This takes the<br />

analogue audio signal delivered by<br />

the Aurora’s DAC (Digital-to-Analogue<br />

Converter) circuitry – based<br />

around a chip from ESS Technology’s<br />

renowned 32-bit Sabre DAC<br />

family – and adds gain in preparation<br />

for further amplification, imbuing<br />

the sound with pure tonality,<br />

open imaging and natural fluidity.<br />

<strong>The</strong> resulting low-level signal then<br />

passes to the power amp stage –<br />

iFi’s ‘current multiplier circuit’. This<br />

is a highly efficient switching power<br />

amplifier, a description it has in<br />

common with Class D amplification<br />

– but there the similarity ends.<br />

Class D amp modules are often used<br />

in audio products because they are<br />

energy efficient and able to generate<br />

relatively high current from a<br />

small device. However, in terms of<br />

sound quality, typical ‘off-the shelf’<br />

Class D amps leave a lot to be desired,<br />

not least because switching<br />

occurs at varying frequencies<br />

which may be within the audible<br />

range – the higher the power level,<br />

the lower the switching frequency.<br />

iFi’s current multiplier circuit is<br />

entirely different because the<br />

switching frequency is fixed at an<br />

ultra-high level – around 1.5MHz,<br />

far beyond the audible frequency<br />

spectrum. This results in a high level<br />

of efficiency, multiplying the current<br />

supplied by the valve several<br />

thousand-fold, whilst maintaining<br />

far greater linearity and lower noise<br />

than typical switching amplifiers.<br />

Coupled to this is a low-pass circuit<br />

and a feedback loop, the latter<br />

ensuring the output frequency is<br />

ideal for the load, and everything is<br />

‘clock-locked’ via iFi’s GMT (Global<br />

Master Timing) circuit to ensure<br />

unerring precision.<br />

This ingenious fusion of amp technologies<br />

enables a sound that combines<br />

purity of tone with a high level<br />

of engagement, speed and dynamic<br />

gusto, ensuring the emotive quality<br />

of music is delivered in full effect.<br />

MB&F + L’EPEE 1839<br />

Six years after the launch of the Starfleet Machine,<br />

the first clock co-created by MB&F and<br />

L’Epée 1839, a new expedition is underway. <strong>The</strong><br />

space station returns in 2020, in a more compact size<br />

and enhanced with bright colours, accompanied by a<br />

fleet of three small spacecraft exploring the universe;<br />

it rightfully bears the name of Starfleet Explorer.<br />

Designed by MB&F, the Starfleet Explorer is an intergalactic<br />

spaceship-cum-table clock crafted by L’Epée<br />

1839, the last remaining Swiss manufacture specialised<br />

in high-end table clocks. Not only does it display<br />

the hours and minutes, it also features an animation<br />

in which three spacecraft perform a five-minute<br />

orbit of the station. <strong>The</strong> highly visible, superlatively<br />

finished in-house movement boasts an exceptional<br />

eight-day power reserve. <strong>The</strong> mechanism can be<br />

manually wound using a double-ended key serving to<br />

wind the movement as well as to set the time.<br />

Hours and minutes are indicated by means of two<br />

discs, along with an aperture and a brightly-coloured<br />

hand. More specifically, the minutes on a revolving<br />

radar dish are read off when they appear through the<br />

centre of a fixed metal aperture, satin-brushed by<br />

hand and anodised, that follows the dome’s curved<br />

contours.<br />

<strong>The</strong> hours disc placed just below remains motionless.<br />

An hour hand – likewise satin-brushed and anodised<br />

– indicates the hour by spinning in its place<br />

and performing a complete turn around the disc in<br />

12 hours.<br />

Starfleet Explorer also features a significantly original<br />

new element in the form of three tiny spacecraft,<br />

lined up along the same axis at regular intervals and<br />

placed inside the actual Starfleet movement, the<br />

heart of the mechanism, around which they revolve<br />

at a rate of one full turn every five minutes: a space<br />

exploration guided by the mothership.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Starfleet Explorer’s movement is placed horizontally,<br />

but its escapement is vertically positioned.<br />

<strong>The</strong> impeccably finished stainless stain or palladium-treated<br />

brass components (with the exception of<br />

the 11 jewels) are designed and manufactured in the<br />

L’Epee 1839 Swiss atelier. <strong>The</strong> gears and mainspring<br />

barrel are on full display thanks to the skeletonised<br />

mainplate and concentric C-shaped external structure.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Starfleet Explorer can rest on both ends of<br />

its vertical landing gear; a useful feature when turning<br />

it over to wind the mainspring and set the time.<br />

It can also be leant sideways so as to offer a different<br />

view of the intergalactic horological station.<br />

Trends<br />

Starfleet Explorer is launched as three<br />

limited editions of 99 pieces each in blue,<br />

Table clocks – (extremely) large watches<br />

<strong>The</strong> Starfleet Explorer is a table clock, featuring essentially<br />

the same mechanisms as a wristwatch, only<br />

larger: gear train, mainspring barrel, balance wheel,<br />

escape wheel and pallet-lever. L’Epée 1839’s regulator<br />

also features an Incabloc shock protection system,<br />

something generally only seen in wristwatches, which<br />

minimises the risk of damage when the clock is being<br />

transported.<br />

One might be tempted to think that the more substantial<br />

size of the components simplifies work. Larger<br />

components, however, make finely finishing the<br />

movement much more difficult to handle than finishing<br />

a wristwatch, because of the bigger surface areas.<br />

Arnaud Nicolas, CEO L’Epée 1839 explains: “It’s not<br />

just a case of double the size of the components, it’s<br />

double the time it takes to finish them. <strong>The</strong> complexity<br />

increases exponentially. For polishing you need<br />

to apply the same pressure as you would finishing a<br />

watch movement, but on a bigger surface, and that’s<br />

more challenging. It’s thanks to the experience and<br />

dexterity of our clockmakers that the Starfleet Explorer<br />

can feature such superlative fine-finishing.”<br />

Form follows function<br />

<strong>The</strong> details of the polished movement can be fully<br />

appreciated by the naked eye, thanks in large part to<br />

the Starfleet Explorer’s extremely open concentric<br />

C-shaped external structure, to which the mainplate<br />

is attached.<br />

<strong>The</strong> outermost C-shape features three vertical arcs<br />

on which the clock rests. <strong>The</strong>se graceful supports<br />

play a role in the design of the model, but also have a<br />

very practical application: to enable the Starfleet Explorer<br />

to be placed upside down for time-setting and<br />

rewinding using a special key.<br />

<strong>The</strong> wealthy are on the move,<br />

but where are they going, and why?<br />

<strong>The</strong> Knight Frank World Wealth Report 20<strong>19</strong> reports the the world’s super-wealthy spend over USD 2.4bn on on second<br />

citizenship each year, with most demand coming from China, the the Middle East, and and Russia.<br />

Immigration amongst high-net-worth individuals is is ‘strong and growing’, the the report notes. Indeed, some of of the the world’s<br />

most affluent businesspeople are choosing to to migrate to to other countries and/or adopt second citizenship.<br />

But why do do high-net-worth individuals find second citizenship so so attractive? Is Is citizenship-by-investment really the the<br />

best use of of your money?<br />

Let’s look at at the top reasons for for wealthy investors choosing second citizenship, and and explore the the programmes that that prove<br />

most attractive.<br />

Why do so so many<br />

high-net-worth<br />

individuals opt for<br />

second citizenship?<br />

While every investor we we talk to to is is different, everyone shares some common hopes and and fears:<br />

Stability, safety and security: Global forced displacement is is the the highest it’s it’s been for for decades. Second citizenship is is an an<br />

insurance policy against this sort of of upheaval, allowing those with means to to secure a a better future for for themselves and and<br />

their family. If If you’re one of of the many who worry about increasing political and and economic turmoil,<br />

citizenship-by-investment can offer invaluable peace of of mind.<br />

Healthcare: During the Covid-<strong>19</strong> international lockdown, only citizens & permanent residents were allowed to to return<br />

to to their “home” countries. What price now can you put on on a a second or or third Permanent Residence card from a a country<br />

with top quality health care? Having that option in in your back pocket, might be be the the best insurance plan you you can can ever take take<br />

out.<br />

Global mobility: Some passports can be be very restrictive regarding global mobility, which can can be be a a real real hindrance for for<br />

anyone who enjoys –– or or relies on on –– international travel. At At the the time of of writing, the the top top passport-holders could travel to to<br />

160+ countries on on visa-free or or visa-on-arrival terms.<br />



Global mobility is an issue of personal and professional freedom. Of being able to holiday where you want; take<br />

business meetings where you want, without lengthy visa delays and restrictions. Global mobility is an issue of keeping<br />

up when we live in increasingly globalised societies; not being able to move freely really can hold you back. For<br />

high-net-worth individuals, citizenship-by-investment offers global mobility that might not otherwise be available –<br />

along with genuine personal and professional benefits. Trade and investment: Restrictions in global mobility often also<br />

translate to restrictions in trade and investment, because they both stem from the same thing: global standing.<br />

Countries that enjoy positive standing on the world stage also enjoy an abundance of global treaties and agreements,<br />

which grant citizens increased rights. Countries that are more internationally isolated enjoy fewer of these privileges,<br />

and citizens bear the burden. <strong>The</strong>se privileges include freedom to travel easily, and also extend to trade. <strong>The</strong>re can be<br />

huge disparity in the number of such agreements countries hold, and from which citizens benefit.<br />

For example, the Democratic Republic of Congo is not the only country in Africa that holds no global goods and services<br />

regional trade agreements. Citizens from these countries would have no preferential rights on regional trading which<br />

would significantly impact business development. On the other hand, countries such as Canada, the US, China, and the<br />

UK enjoy around 40 regional trade agreements that empower easier trade for their citizens.<br />

Investing in second citizenship can give access to preferential trade agreements and conditions that would be<br />

otherwise inaccessible. For wealthy businesspeople, this can deliver significant returns in terms of trade within new<br />

territories.<br />

Tax relief: Another major reason high-net-worth individuals choose second citizenship is what the Knight Frank<br />

report calls the ‘ever-growing demand from the wealthy to move their money into safe havens’. Many wealthy<br />

individuals are realising second citizenship can pay for itself in tax relief. With a 0% corporate and income tax rates<br />

(along with many other favourable rates) offered by several countries around the world, particularly those in the<br />

Caribbean, the potential savings are clear.<br />

Quality of life: Many second citizenship programmes are designed so you don’t have to live in (or in some cases ever<br />

travel to) the country to gain and maintain your new citizenship. While many investors see this as a real plus, many<br />

embrace the opportunity to relocate.<br />

When money is no object, it makes sense that securing the best possible life for you and your family would be high on<br />

your agenda. And sometimes, that requires a new country, a new home and a new lifestyle. On average 32% of ultra<br />

high-net-worth individuals plan to buy a new home outside their country of residency in the next two years, reports<br />

the Knight Frank World Wealth Report 20<strong>19</strong>. <strong>The</strong> UK, US, France, Switzerland, and Spain are the five most popular<br />

locations for second homes, while lifestyle is the most important factor determining location choice.<br />

For those with means, citizenship- or residency-by-investment can be the first step in building a new life somewhere<br />

you really want to be.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> right to freedom of movement is a fundamental right preserved in the laws and constitutions of most countries,<br />

however we see evidence daily that this right is limited to the borders and visa restrictions of ones<br />

country of citizenship or lawful residence.”<br />

Which citizenship-by-investment programmes are most<br />

popular? Let’s look at the top 4 programmes that especially<br />

appeal to high-net-worth individuals’ main concerns:<br />

<strong>The</strong> US Immigrant Investor Program: When lifestyle is the most important factor determining location choice, it’s little<br />

surprise the US Immigrant Investor Visa is so popular. This EB-5 visa – otherwise known as a green card – allows you<br />

to secure permanent US residency for you and your family for an investment from USD 900,000.<br />

As a US resident, you enjoy domestic access to US education – no small thing, given that 15 of the top 20 universities in<br />

20<strong>19</strong> are from the US. You benefit from world-class healthcare, and a unique culture of opportunity and liberty. For<br />

many investors, the US Immigrant Investor Program is a golden ticket to the American Dream, albeit not the friendliest<br />

country in the world from a tax perspective.<br />

St. Kitts and Nevis: <strong>The</strong> Caribbean is the undeniable birthplace of second citizenship, and remains enduringly popular<br />

amongst high-net-worth individuals as a means of protecting their wealth. <strong>The</strong> most established of the many<br />

Caribbean programmes, St. Kitts and Nevis definitely deserves a mention. <strong>The</strong> St. Kitts and Nevis program is now 36<br />

years old, and still offers fantastic benefits for global mobility and a laid-back island lifestyle, but the tax advantages are<br />

where the programme really comes into its own.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re is no personal income tax or capital gains tax, and companies that conduct business exclusively with<br />

non-residents are exempt from all income, capital gains and withholding taxes.<br />

Portugal: <strong>The</strong> market leader in the golden visa market. Portugal allows investors from as little as Eur280k, to acquire<br />

Temporary Residency status, which allows access to all of the Schengen member states. After 5 years of Temporary<br />

Residence, the investor can apply for Portuguese Citizenship, and your real estate investment, should you have chosen<br />

that option, should have had double digit growth annually over this period of time. Mandatory residence requirement?<br />

Yes, 7 days per year.<br />

Vanuatu: <strong>The</strong> newest kid on the block. A Commonwealth archipelago nation, spread across 82 islands in the south<br />

Pacific Ocean, Vanuatu is a three hour flight from Sydney, and is Consistently rated as one of the “Happiest Countries<br />

on Earth”. Vanuatu’s location, people, pristine environment and natural beauty render this as truly one of the Planet’s<br />

last undiscovered “gems”.<br />

Vanuatu’s citizenship by investment program is called the “Development Support Program” or DSP, and was launched<br />

on 01 January 2017. <strong>The</strong> Government of Vanuatu designed the DSP to both attract quality high net worth applicants –<br />

who might also become investors in Vanuatu, and also to directly raise funds in support of the further development of<br />

the country. As the newest citizenship by investment program in the world, it is also the fastest, by far, with<br />

Government pre-clearance for applicants taking as little as 10 days.<br />

<strong>The</strong> entire process in Vanuatu can permit applicants to have a new passport in their hand, in less than 60 days. So if<br />

time is of the essence, this is the by far the best option, allowing visa free travel to over 130 countries, including<br />

Schengen and the UK. Costs for an individual start at USD$130k.<br />

So what does the future hold for wealthy migration and second citizenship?<br />

COVID Victims, while also celebrating COVID Heroes.<br />

We invite nominations of ‘COVID Heroes’ from all industries<br />

and sectors. Nominations will be reviewed independently<br />

by a panel of experts, and selected heroes<br />

will be profiled in an exclusive interview with Business<br />

Day to boost awareness for their projects. <strong>The</strong> heroes<br />

will also be invited to talk about their work and projects<br />

in an exclusive weekly Instagram Live series titled<br />

‘Conversations with COVID Heroes’.<br />

Another arm of the campaign titled COVID Heroes Stories<br />

will focus on curating behind-the-scenes footage<br />

and candid portraits of the heroes at work. A selection<br />

of these photographs will be featured in a post-COVID<br />

exhibition at our upcoming African Art event in Bvlgari<br />

Hotel, Knightsbridge London. <strong>The</strong> exhibition is being<br />

curated to lend a new perspective to the conversation<br />

about Nigeria, with a look at how the most populous<br />

city on the continent fought the Covid-<strong>19</strong> crisis.<br />

This campaign underpins our ethos of creating unique<br />

partnerships, for greater impact. We are delighted to<br />

use our platform to celebrate the efforts of inspirational<br />

Nigerians and are ready to make our small contribution<br />

to the fight against Covid-<strong>19</strong>.<br />

2020 marked Last Frontier’s 25th heliski season and until the<br />

early close on March 18th, it was one for the record books. Over<br />

660cm of snow fell in just 11 weeks of operation. Week after<br />

week, the words “Wicked” and “Awesome” came to define the<br />

skiing quality at Bell 2 Lodge and Ripley Creek. Last Frontier<br />

would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone that visited this<br />

winter.<br />

Conditions Recap<br />

March 2020 Heliski Report: <strong>The</strong> snowmageddon continued in<br />

the first week of March with 100cm of the fresh POW. Breaks in<br />

the weather allowed us to experience awesome conditions both<br />

up high in the Alpine and down low in the trees. As they moved<br />

into the middle of the month, conditions got even better. Huge<br />

bluebird days on big mountain terrain and epic snow made for<br />

some of the best conditions they’ve ever had.<br />

In my role as the Editor in Chief<br />

of <strong>The</strong> <strong>Luxury</strong> <strong>Network</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>,<br />

I am privileged enough to<br />

be on a constant journey of discovering<br />

amazing locations and live<br />

unique experiences, to share with<br />

our readers and people around me.<br />

In the latest news, after the spread<br />

and impact of COVID-<strong>19</strong>, a sector<br />

is emerging and creating a big<br />

hype around well-being, as consumers<br />

are focusing more on the<br />

value of health and wellness, than<br />

on material objects. <strong>The</strong> definition<br />

of health and wellness is widely<br />

evolving. It is natural for such a<br />

sector to develop now so rapidly<br />

as today many of us are dedicating<br />

time to ourselves and to our own<br />

well-being. This has become a precious<br />

commodity, in other words, a<br />

true “luxury.”<br />

Well-being is no longer defined as<br />

a health condition but has evolved<br />

into a more holistic state of being<br />

where one’s mental, physical, and<br />

emotional health are the priority.<br />

This is a time where many expose<br />

their lives on social media by looking<br />

great, feeling good, and sleeping<br />

well – these are the new luxuries<br />

that consumers want to enjoy<br />

during and after the pandemic.<br />

I have been fortunate enough to<br />

get invited to visit a number of<br />

exclusive health and well-being<br />

establishments around the world.<br />

I discovered that over the years,<br />

their focus was to promote the development<br />

of cell therapy and research<br />

into vitality, enhancing the<br />

immune system, and slowing down<br />

the aging process. Most of the<br />

establishments were using special<br />

scientific approaches to wellness<br />

and bespoke treatments that look<br />

deeper into the genes that makeup<br />

each and every guest. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

establishments or clinics usually<br />

provide their customers a number<br />

of tailored and bespoke programs<br />

that will attend to the consumer’s<br />

needs; whether it is weight loss,<br />

detoxing, dietary problems, or<br />

general well-being treatments performed<br />

by professional physicians.<br />

Gym instructors, personal trainers,<br />

and yoga instructors, around<br />

the world are igniting our desire<br />

to stay fit during social isolation<br />

by offering online classes and<br />

many home workouts which help<br />

strengthen both mind and muscle.<br />

Eating clean, working out,<br />

and monitoring one’s health, has<br />

become a very important lifestyle<br />

for most people. <strong>The</strong> new generation<br />

is participating in fitness<br />

classes and activities that improve<br />

well-being; using products, devices,<br />

and mobile apps that aid<br />

sounding sleep, consuming organic<br />

and natural foods, taking health<br />

supplements, and following special<br />

diets.<br />

<strong>The</strong> “farm-to-table” concept has<br />

exploded during this pandemic. It<br />

is now in-demand and the luxury<br />

consumers don’t mind paying a<br />

premium package to meet these<br />

values in order to be organically<br />

healthy. In addition, luxury consumers<br />

are showing an increasing<br />

appetite to participate in activities<br />

and are indulging in experiences<br />

that promote their well-being, and<br />

sharing those experiences with<br />

their family and friends.<br />

Retailers are seeing a sales increase<br />

in the products and services<br />

that promise to improve the<br />

mind, body, and spirit because<br />

the luxury wellness industry isn’t<br />

just about working out, eating,<br />

or sleeping. It is also about other<br />

helpful factors such as taking<br />

health supplements, day and night<br />

creams, facial masks, fitness home<br />

equipment, and so much more.<br />

According to the studies<br />

conducted by Euromonitor<br />

<strong>International</strong>:<br />

• 42% high income consumers<br />

follow an at-home fitness program<br />

• 40% high income consumers<br />

take measures to manage stress,<br />

anxiety and mental health<br />

• 473 billion USD global spent on<br />

health and wellness in 20<strong>19</strong><br />

<strong>Luxury</strong> wellness in the safety<br />

of your own home<br />

<strong>Luxury</strong> company Klafs at Guncast is<br />

seeing a rise in consumers wanting to<br />

transform their home into safe wellness<br />

sanctuaries<br />

• <strong>The</strong> at-home luxury wellness sphere<br />

has been growing substantially<br />

• What was once reserved for the<br />

very best luxury hotels, destination<br />

spas and exclusive residential<br />

developments is now moving more<br />

into the home<br />

• <strong>Luxury</strong> hotels are also rolling out<br />

more personalised tools to help<br />

calm travellers, including in-room<br />

saunas and fully-functioning spas<br />

and wellbeing apps<br />

• This shift in consumer behaviour<br />

is set to continue to accelerate on<br />

the back of the pandemic, with demand<br />

for at-home wellness already<br />

growing at a rapid pace<br />

As affluent consumers take wellness<br />

a top priority now, luxury<br />

businesses should follow through.<br />

<strong>The</strong> concept of luxury wellness is<br />

taking center stage, follow your<br />

consumers, and their desires.<br />
