As we welcome the last stretch of 2020, maybe we shouldn’t be too eager to forget how the past eight months have changed us – for the better. Many of us found much more time for ourselves and our loved ones, and picked up new and empowering interests that gave richer dimensions to our lives. Whether it was the culinary arts, health and wellness or wine collecting, this downtime paved the way for sharpening our knowledge, and perhaps helped us to better appreciate the artisans and creators behind the luxury products and services we consume. This issue, we put the focus on some of these brilliant minds who blazed their own trails in maintaining a successful artisanal business and developing the tastes of locals. Speaking about good taste, our cover story on Prestige Style Award 2020 winner Grace Chng gets under the skin of the socialite to find out what it truly means to be stylish. Our gorgeous fashion spread brings to life the versatility of Autumn/Winter 2020 womenswear, while our report on the latest haute couture dives into the details of three maisons’ savoir faire. Our feature on Rolex and its commitment to cinema will also provide an insight into how tastemakers are drawn to the values and purpose at the heart of the brands they support. We also highlight some of the finest heritage companies and their much-anticipated new offerings – from Hermès’ Lignes Sensibles high jewellery collection to the reboot of Land Rover’s Defender. Don’t forget to check out our stories on the hottest properties in Paris’ Left Bank, the exciting natural wines movement, acclaimed Italian-born performance artist and photographer Margot Errante, and the most desirable luxury convertibles. If these don’t already sweep you away, our travel feature on the stunning Faroe Islands would.
