High atop New York City’s tallest building, Montblanc celebrated the launch of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition, a writing instrument inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s much-loved poetic tale. For one night, the Observatory at One World Trade in lower Manhattan was transformed into the magical and child-like universe of the Little Prince where guests including Hugh Jackman, Charlotte Casiraghi, Milla Jovovich, Rita Ora, Chloë Sevigny, Lucky Blue Smith, Sofia Sanchez de Betak and Julia Restoin Roitfeld got a first glimpse of the new Meisterstück edition.

With design elements based on Saint-Exupéry’s hand-drawn illustrations, the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition evokes the themes of one of the world’s most translated novels – the power of imagination, friendship and the transmission of ideas to others.  With its simple message that real wealth comes from giving to others, the edition reinforces the legendary Meisterstück’s status as a powerful and meaningful gift that creates lasting bonds between generations.

The immersive evening offered guests many different ways to experience the imagination and wonder of the little prince’s world, from creating an animated souvenir of the event swinging with the fox under an iridescent apple tree to designing a personalized symbol of Le Petit Prince on a tactile screen that was then drawn by hand by an artist on a Montblanc’s notebook.  Served inside a starlit dining room overlooking the New York skyline and the stars above, a dinner menu featuring a Scallop Painter’s Pallet, Filet Mignon and Butter Poached Lobster with Risotto evoked childhood memories. The selection of Petit Prince desserts that followed included an Asteroid 325 Donut Wall and Fox Hand-piped Sugar Cookies.  During the seated dinner, guests were treated to a surprise reading of a passage from the novel by Hugh Jackman as the fox and Charlotte Casiraghi as the little prince. Brooklyn band The Cool Rulers entertained guests before they left the planets and stars of the little prince, and returned to the reality of the world below.

Counting Down to the Singapore Yacht Show

Excitement and anticipation are building up as the eighth edition of the Singapore Yacht Show (SYS), set to take place from 12 to 15 April 2018 at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove, Singapore, is rapidly shaping up. This year will see an expanding line-up of the world’s most prestigious superyachts and boating brands at Asia’s biggest boat show, along with a dazzling social calendar replete with glamorous parties, networking events and high-end entertainment.

In an impressive array of regional debuts, Boat Lagoon Yachting, Simpson Marine, Hong Seh Marine, Azimut, ProMarine, and Multihull Solutions, to name but a few, will all unveil new models recently released by their respective brands – some up to 30m long. Nautical Habitat, a newcomer to SYS and to the region, will be debuting as an exclusive distributor of leading yacht brands and first-class yacht brokering services, demonstrating the industry’s belief in the growing business potential in the region.

Stunning Superyachts
One of the biggest yachts currently confirmed in the 2018 line-up is the 52m Prana by Atzaro, a majestic newly-built eight-bedroom Phinisi yacht making its world debut at the Show in partnership with renowned brand Sunbrella. Featuring interiors by Philip Gonda from Ibiza’s Atzaró Group, and custom-made furniture by Javanese artisans, Prana’s unique design draws inspiration from the traditional Indonesian two-masted sailing ships and the sun-kissed shores of Bira in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Phinisi boat-building is considered an artform and Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Asian Premieres & Debuts
Boat Lagoon Yachting, one of Asia’s largest importers and distributors of luxury yachts, returns once again to SYS to present two of the latest additions to the iconic Flybridge range from Princess Yachts in Southeast Asia – the Princess 62 and Princess 55. These brand-new models made their world premiere at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival and will join the impressive fleet. Boat Lagoon Yachting will also announce the Asia premiere of the Princess 30M and Princess S65, the Show debut of Jeanneau’s distinguished powerboat Merry Fisher 895, and the thoughtfully customized Princess 75 motor yacht.

Simpson Marine, Asia’s leading yacht dealer, present at every edition of SYS’ since the very beginning, will lead the regional premieres with the Beneteau Oceanis 51.1 – the first of a new generation, featuring taut lines, a new stepped hull and a stylish deck plan; Beneteau Gran Turismo 50 – the flagship of the latest generation of sport cruisers by Beneteau; Beneteau Lagoon 50 – with a new visual identity, rigging and hull design; and Beneteau Lagoon 40 – Lagoon’s new sailing catamaran model.

Also making its regional premiere, the new Ferretti 780, presented by Hong Seh Marine, will show off its aerodynamic design with clean shapes and sleek lines that are a feature of the Tai He Ban collection – a special new range with design customization aimed specifically at the Asian market. Hong Seh Marine will also be launching the Boston Whaler 315 Conquest, great for fishing and cruising.

Italian yacht builder Azimut Yachts will introduce its Grande 27 Metri in Asia for the first time. Recently crowned winner of the 2017 World Yachts Trophies’ “Most Achieved” Trophy in the 80’ to 125’ category, it features the use of carbon fibre, a construction choice that allows volumes and surfaces to be increased in size while keeping the same weight maintaining excellent levels of dynamic stability.

ProMarine will be presenting the 34m superyacht Majesty 110 and the 18m Nomad 55 by Gulf Craft. Carefully designed by the celebrated British yacht designer Andrew Wolstenholme, Nomad 55 is perfect for long-distance travelling. Multihull Solutions will unveil their Fountain Pajot MY 44, a brand new 44-foot power catamaran.

Sustainable mobility and some of the latest developments towards mindful conservation at sea will also be present at SYS. Azura Marine will be unveiling the solar electric catamaran Aquanima 45, a brand new ecological yacht with unrestricted and unlimited sailing range and no operation cost.

Anna Dello Russo Night – Milan

WHAT: Anna Dello Russo conceived a volcanic event in three acts promoted by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, that took the audience by storm during Milan Fashion Week.

The whole opus revolved around Anna’s extensive fashion archive: a treasure. She has dismantled her archive, documenting it – in non-orthodox, amusing ways – in a book, and selling the actual pieces through an auction.

The event opened with the Christie’s auction, hosted by Place Vendôme Qatar. Thirty full outfits from Anna Dello Russo’s extensive archive of religiously kept hi-impact outfits, dating from 1985 to the present time, were the subject of the auction, that featured a catwalk show with models like Jasmine Sanders, Izabel Goulart, Maria Borges, Cindy Bruna, Caroline Vreeland, Hailey Baldwin among the others. Anna Dello Russo opened the show wearing a Redemption pink gazar gown and a Gareth Pugh one-off hat, especially customized with Swarovski crystals for the auction. All the revenues, which scored 147.000 Euro, were devolved to the Swarovski Foundation Scholarship

Program, an organization devoted to sustaining young fashion talents of the future.

The auction was followed by an exclusive dinner, hosted by Nadja Swarovski, and a lavish party offered by Ms. Nga Nguyen.

WHEN: Saturday, February 24th 2018

WHERE: A Milanese palazzo that will be converted into a five- star property in two years by Europe Hotels Private Collection, lead by hotelier Liran Wizman.

Corso di Porta Romana 10 – Milano

WHO: Anna Dello Russo, Carlo Capasa, Nadja Swarovski, Carole Sabbagha, Nga Nguyen, Gabriele Moratti, Riccardo Grassi, Liran and Eeke Wizman, Fabio Pampani, Cristiano de Lorenzo, Bianca Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga, Federico Marchetti, Diego della Valle, Andrea della Valle, Renzo Rosso, Anwar Hadid, Nicola Peltz, Natasha Poly, Peter Dundas, Matilde Gioli, Ermanno Scervino, Rossella Tarabini, Laura Lusuardi, Marco de Vincenzo, Paul Surridge, Lorenzo Serafini, Margherita Maccapani Missoni, Linda Tol, Bianca Padilla, Neil Barrett, Giorgia Tordini, Gilda Ambrosio, Giovanna Battaglia, Oscar Engelbert, Doina Ciobanu, Alessandro dell’Acqua, Ermanno Scervino, Olivia Palermo, Johannes Huebl, Jasmine Sanders, Constanza Etro, Fausto Puglisi, Caroline Daur, Jordan Barrett, Izabel Goulart, Nieves Alvarez, Marcelo Burlon, Candela Pelizza, Paolo Stella, Francesca Versace, Micol Sabbadini, Pietro Boselli, Shea Marie

Legendary New York Cocktail Bar ‘PDT’ Opens Today at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is delighted to announce the opening of its new bar concept – PDT, a stylish, intimate cocktail bar seating 25 guests, a unique collaboration with the operators of the iconic New York cocktail bar PDT (Please Don’t Tell).

Regularly voted among the World’s Best Bars, PDT has long been a favourite of New Yorkers who enjoy its secret phone booth entrance, distinctive interiors, and creative cocktails developed by renowned mixologists Jim Meehan, Jeff Bell and their talented bar team.  PDT Hong Kong will be the first permanent PDT outside of New York City.

Located on the mezzanine above MO Bar, the hotel’s vibrant all-day-dining venue, PDT Hong Kong follows the tradition of the original: guests will enter through an entrance disguised by a phone booth at the top of the staircase. Designed by Nelson Chow, the interior maintains key elements of PDT NYC such as the copper bar top, herringbone patterned wood ceiling and taxidermy, but each asset has been given a playful spin.

PDT Hong Kong’s drinks menu features 15 cocktails including a mix of PDT classics and new creations crafted especially for Hong Kong. These new offerings including the ‘Big Fan’, a refreshing shandy served with Cabeza tequila, lime juice, pink peppercorn, guava and Moonzen Fuijan radler; the ‘Bad Hunter’, a John Collins prepared with Chivas blended Scotch whisky, Fernet Hunter, lemon juice, dragon eye and Moët Brut Imperial Champagne; and the ‘Milky Tea Punch’, a rich flip composed of Ron Zacapa Centenario rum, Hennessy V.S.O.P. cognac, Rickshaw tea, condensed milk, Tayouran egg and Angostura bitters.  The cocktails are supplemented with a selection of regional beers, wines and non-alcoholic options.

PDT Hong Kong’s food menu is Chef Richard Ekkebus’ take on American comfort foods. “My team and I have developed artisanal frankfurters with free-range pork, chicken and beef from sustainable sources.” The menu features the bacon-wrapped, deep-fried pork dog with Kimchi from the New York menu while new creations for PDT Hong Kong include the ‘Honkie Dog’ fried pork dog with sakura shrimp and XO mayo.  Not to be missed is the Okonomiyaki-style tater tots topped with kewpie mayonnaise, takoyaki sauce, shredded nori, bonito shavings and scallions.

PDT Hong Kong opening hours:

Monday to Thursday                 5pm to 1am

Friday & Saturday                     5pm to 1:30am

Sunday                                     Closed

Savour The Amazing World Of Art At The Awesome BRICKHOUSE

To kick start 2018, Brickhouse will be continuing with a love affair of street art with a series of events showcasing and producing art to celebrate local artists and generate more of the community spirit that Brickhouse thrives off.

In January, Brickhouse will welcome two featured artists who guests can meet and mingle with during launch events, learning more about their work and inspiration over drinks and nibbles. What’s more, Brickhouse is bringing back the Art Barrel Jam to unleash the creativity of local artists.

 Tuesday 9th January will be the launch of Mherck Dela Cruz at Brickhouse, a Hong Kong-based Filipino photographer who has been living in Hong Kong for the past six years. Growing up he always loved cameras and so his family encouraged him to embrace his creative streak and to get behind the lens. Mherck’s photography style can be described as raw and edgy. He does not follow traditional styles and pushes the boundaries of imagination in terms of concepts and compositions. He aims to provoke the mind and senses and to break the mould of traditional photography. His work is always to promote body confidence, self-confidence and beauty in all of its forms, no matter what shape or size. His work will be on display and available for purchase until the 28th January.

 On Saturday 13th January, Brickhouse brings back the Art Barrel Jam… a day that brings together the unique combination of live art, food, drink and music, all taking place in a secret alleyway that is home to Brickhouse. The concept is simple – a selection of artists, 5 huge barrels and a whole lot of imagination.

The idea of this event is to celebrate the local Hong Kong art scene and support local artists by providing an outlet for creativity – something that is core to the Brickhouse experience. Whether you’re an avid art lover, indulge in art in your spare time or just want to join in the fun, Art Barrel will not disappoint. Opening its doors early, Brickhouse will be home to an art jam session like no other. There are no rules, no restrictions and no limitations to what the artists can create on the barrels and after an afternoon at Brickhouse, who knows what could happen…

On Monday 29th January, Brickhouse will be welcoming Kiwi photographer Carmen Huter for an exclusive preview of her exhibition entitled “In Pursuit of Light”.  As an accomplished travel photographer with a loyal following of 70k+ on social media, several National Geographic online features, many trusted brand partnerships and more than two dozen countries later, the once unknown has morphed itself into a beautiful, messy reality that Carmen is eager to share with you. To create more than to consume are words the 24 year old lives by.

For this exhibition, the viewer will embark on a journey through continents and cultures. A curated mix of landscape, wildlife and documentary photographs from around the world will be displayed with neat insights into the process of taking them. Prepare to feel inspired to explore.

All of Carmen’s artwork will be on display for the month of February, available for purchase and part of the funds will go to Plastic Oceans, a cause she is deeply passionate about.

Brickhouse: G/F, 20A D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong

Open Monday-Wednesday 6pm-2am, Thursday-Saturday 6pm-4am

Closed Sundays

Romantic, rare and archival pieces with a focus on “savoir faire” took center stage in the section dedicated to nostalgia, whilst innovative complications that are certain to become future icons embodied the idea of making memories.
