Latest Lifestyle News: Attention Turns to Aviation
When the EBACE conference was first established in 1977, private business aviation was a mere babe in arms. Private jets were used only by a tiny fraction of the world’s wealthiest business folk, and it was seen more as a display or prestige than anything else.
How times have changed. Just over three decades later, this sector has grown beyond all recognition, with multiple companies competing for the custom of an ever-growing cadre of high net-worth individuals in the global village of business and commerce.
And so as EBACE 2018 gears up for opening its doors in Geneva, Switzerland, our main feature story in today’s newsletter focuses on the high-profile event, and in particular the presence there of a company that is steeped in British traditions of impeccable design.
Elsewhere this week, we report on an enticing offer for sports car lover, with news that the Pagani Huayra Hypercar is now available to rent for a cool $25,000 per month, along with the eye-catching sale of a rare and historically significant blue diamond for $6.7 million.
There’s also news on the upcoming opening of a typically futuristic hotel by Zaha Hadid Architects, a world record auction sale of a Modigliani Painting for $157 million, and a brand new luxurious television set by high-end Danish company Bang & Olufsen.
Finally for this week, we bring you news on French car maker Alpine’s unveiling of its brand new A110 models at the London Concours event, along with the creation by Louis Vuitton of a lavish case that will hold the 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy.
That’s all for now. Until next time, enjoy our newsletter and have a wonderful week.
