FEATURING PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT PRIVATE AMERICAN COLLECTION AND

IN FOCUS: PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF BRAD GREY

COMPRISED OF TWO PRIVATE AMERICAN COLLECTIONS OF ICONIC FRENCH DESIGN

WORKS BY CHAREAU, DUNAND, FRANK, GRAY, LEGRAIN, LALANNE, PUIFORCAT, ROYÈRE, RUHLMANN

Christie’s announces the spring sale of Design taking place on June 20, 2018, at Rockefeller Plaza. The auction is comprised of two private American collections with a curated focus on works by some of the most iconic names of French design. The artists featured include Pierre Chareau, Jean Dunand, Jean-Michel Frank, Eileen Gray, François-Xavier Lalanne, Pierre Legrain, Jean Puiforcat, Jean Royère, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, who are among the most representative of an era in which France led the world as a hub of creativity of the highest quality and sophistication, a period of little more than a decade through which the country’s output attracted the attention of an appreciative, elite international clientele.

Beth Vilinsky, Senior Specialist, Design, remarks: “The appearance at auction of two collections such as these, comprising works of the highest caliber constitutes an event of real significance. We are delighted and honored to unveil and present these works from two notable collections in a focused sale to allow these masterpieces of French design to be in conversation and present a comprehensive look at this important moment of design history.”

EXPLORING BANGOK’S CREATIVE DISTRICT WITH MANDARIN ORIENTAL

Bangkok’s most iconic hotel on the banks of the River of Kings, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, is giving guests the opportunity to explore the renaissance of arts, culture and culinary wonders of Charoenkrung with two new packages this summer.

While Bangkok is synonymous with shopping and known for its thriving culinary scene, the Charoenkrung Creative District has transformed itself into a foodie and artsy enclave. Multitudes of art galleries, shophouses, creative spaces, restaurants and bars are fostering a distinct atmosphere through a creative revival with the result being an eclectic mix of old and new world charm.

For more than 140 years, travellers have stayed at the legendary Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, which enjoys a reputation for style, service and excellence. Home to nine outstanding restaurants and bars, excellent spa and wellness facilities as well as a Thai cooking school, it is the ultimate Bangkok address.

The Bangkok Riverside Summer Explorer package is priced from THB 14,850 and includes:

  • Luxurious accommodation

  • Daily credit of THB 3,000 for rooms or THB6,000 for suite bookings, which can be used in all restaurants and spas

  • 24-hour personal butler service

  • Bespoke Concierge service for tailored advice on how best to explore Bangkok

The Discover Bangkok Creative District package is valid for a minimum stay of two consecutive nights, priced from THB19,975 and includes:

  • Luxurious accommodation

  • A private two-hour guided walking tour of the Creative District by Bangkok River Partners

  • Afternoon Tea in the iconic Authors’ Lounge, and a history tour of the hotel’s ‘Oriental Journey’ exhibit with a hotel representative

  • Daily breakfast at The Riverside Terrace

  • 24-hour personal butler service

“There is no better way to explore our neighbourhood than on foot or by boat. Charoenkrung is historically creative, a redefined urbanscape of bygone and contemporary eras. We are witnessing the district transforming itself into a new precedent for future creative industries,” said Greg Liddell, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok.  “Our exclusive offers invite all discerning travellers to rediscover the Bangkok riverside, with a curated experience by Mandarin Oriental.”

 

Both packages are based on double occupancy, subject to 10% service charge and 7% taxes and valid for stays until 30 September 2018.

Spring into Spring

Spring into Spring

Miami is the place to see and be seen this Spring (by Sebastian Marc)

Faena District in Mid beach

Spring is upon us and its time to swap our cashmere sweaters for shorts and sandals!  The flowers are starting to bloom and the weather only gets better.

Spring is a fantastic season. The best in my opinion to take a break, relax and be creative. The flowers are in Bloom, the greys fade and the temperature rises with it.  Spring “break” is a great time to get away from it all. This year Miami is one of those places we all have to escape to. The clear blue skies, the tropical sea and the perfect party season. Who could blame you!

South Beach Art Deco

South beach, made world famous by Miami Vice, is the epicentre of everything sun and sea. Ocean Drive is the catwalk of all things Miami, Supermodels, drifters, filmstars and  locals call this stretch of Nirvanna the place to be! South Beach has always known how to reinvent itself. Starting as a sleepy town, to nomads land later on in the 80s as a bohemian bolthole to the 2000s as a celeb magnet.  As of late South Beach is going through its latest ,and most profound revival. South Beach is home to the celebrated Art Basel (and by far the most popular of Art Basel festivals).

Art BASEL….

Art Basel has helped Miami shrug of its down market image of drunk fuelled beach party’s.  Art, sophistication and world renowed design now reign supreme in this city. However Miami, unlike so many other destinations still retains its Latin-Carribbean feel. Despite all the Luxury condos and Hotels Miami is still a home from home for so many different nationalities. In few other cities do different nationailities intergrate and co-exist in such a beautiful way as they do in Miami.

 

Keeping it cool with some coconut milk..

We can’t talk about Miami and not mention Art Deco! Miami Beach has the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the world and many of these masterpieces have been transformed into stunning Hotels. The Raleigh is my favourite on South Beach. It is on the best stretch of South Beach right on the water but still remains secluded and privee.

The fantastic Raleigh Hotel with is surreal pool!

Miami is the best place to see and be seen whether its your first time or not

Now do you need more convincing to visit Miami?

Cathay Pacific has daily flights from Hong Kong and Tapei to Miami.

On our way there chicas!….
