Prestige Hong Kong Choice: July 2018

What’s new in fashion, food and collectibles?

Travel

If hardcore wellness retreats such as Chiva Som or The Farm freak you out, Amatara Wellness Resort on the island of Phuket is the perfect getaway for those who want a bit of a health kick without going full force. Meal plans that are part of the Detox Retreat range include soup, raw-food or juice cleanses, or you can DIY your own programme (the resort also hosts patrons who aren’t on any wellness kick at all, so the vibe is more comfort than cult). Make sure you sign up for treatments at the spa that will rev up all your body’s processes.

 

Fashion

Salvatore Ferragamo’s latest line of eyewear pays homage to classic shapes with a contemporary twist. As always, the lauded Italian brand uses only the finest materials, and the result is a selection of sunglasses that any trendsetting lady would love. Choose from a range of timeless colourways and shapes.

 

Nail new-season chic with Chloé’s Roy bucket bag. A fresh addition to the existing collection, it comes in several prints and three sizes, so there’s something for every occasion. Our favourite? The jet-black style stamped with prancing horses. Carry it cross-body for a too-cool-to-care appeal.

 

Hermès ushers in a new era of watch craftsmanship with the arrival of “leather marquetry”. Individual pieces of fine leather are cut and shaped to a thickness of around 0.5mm before artisans create a dial design that’s hand-laid. The Slim d’Hermès Les Zèbres de Tanzanie is a stunning wrist piece from the maison.

 

Indulgences

Make aperitif the main event this summer and head up to Above & Beyond in TST’s Hotel Icon where Chef Paul Tsui has partnered with Perrier-Jouët on a limited-time collaboration. Raise a glass of the estate’s Brut champagne and enjoy a specially created “pop bites” board of canapés – think crispy taro cake with diced abalone and deep-fried prawn with walnut purée.

 

Grassroots Pantry, the headquarters of healthy, plant-based dining on Central’s Hollywood Road, is heralding the summer with a new menu of desserts and drinks – not to forget revamped and fun-filled treats for kids. As all feature unprocessed, low-glycaemic natural sweeteners – think coconut nectar, dates, maple syrup and inulin (a natural storage carbohydrate found in a vast range of plants) – there’s absolutely no reason not to dig in, which is why we’ve plumped for the delicious nut-butter pieces, pictured here.

 

Toys

Yes, we know Leica’s just gone into the watch business, but as we’re traditonalists here at Prestige, we’re bringing you instead a preview of the German brand’s stunning new M10 Edition Zagato camera, designed by the famous Italian automobile carrozzeria, which is now available in a highly limited edition of just 250 examples.

 

Both renowned for effortless power, superb craftmanship and ultimate exclusivity, Italian yacht builder Sanlorenzo and British motor manufacturer Rolls-Royce are joining hands in Asia following the introduction of the latter’s luxurious Cullinan SUV automobile. The two brands are partnering over a series of events to be held in Yokohama, Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore. For a personal invitation, contact Simpson Marine (sanlorenzo@simpsonmarine,com).
