The ultimate beauty summit — Silk meets Sakura
SENSAI ULTIMATE Half Sizes
When the two Japanese treasures, the most luxurious silk and the most powerful tree encounter, the skin’s full potential will be unleashed. This encounter can be called the ultimate summit of beauty. Once again, we are talking about SENSAI ULTIMATE, an all-embracing care line that sourced its inspiration from nature. The vital force extracted from the Sakura, combined with the legendary Koishimaru Silk known for its exceptional moisturising properties, results in a harmonious environment for skin that helps maintain its ultimate condition of blossoming radiance and exquisite silkiness. The Sakura, or cherry blossom, is renowned for its vibrant yet ephemeral beauty. Its power to create tens of thousands of blooms each spring has fascinated the Japanese since ancient times and has been immortalised in myths and countless poems. (The oldest cherry blossom in Japan is more than 1,800 years old!) Developed by SENSAI research, Sakura Eternal Complex supports the natural capacity to repair cell damage. It also targets carnitine, a natural compound in cells that supports skin’s regenerative process helping preserve its inherent beauty. Taken from the Koishimaru cocoon, the source of Japan’s finest silk, Koishimaru Silk EX ensures that the skin’s natural reservoir of moisture stays plentiful. Nature’s manifestations are unpredictable and beautiful beyond our imagination. Like nature, the ULTIMATE experience is also beyond spectacular.
Not only ULTIMATE THE CREAM, but also THE LOTION and THE EMULSION are now available in smaller sizes.
Available starting from March 2017.
ULTMATE THE LOTION
An exquisite priming lotion with a rich texture that sweeps over and nurtures the skin for a complexion that glows from within.
ULTIMATE THE EMULSION
An elegant silky emulsion that softly glides across the face, veiling and nurturing skin to awaken its inner beauty and restore it to become beautiful skin.
Fabulous Fund Fair
Natalia Vodianova’s Fabulous Fund Fair returned for a third fabulous instalment. The world’s most fabulous fundraising event returned on 21 February 2017.
The annual fundraising gala hosted by Natalia Vodianova and co-hosted by Karlie Kloss, which has in previous years seen Natalia Vodianova selling kisses, Karlie Kloss selling her cookie line, Klossies, and celebrities go up against one another in life size bumper cars all in the name of charity, has generated over £1.3 million so far towards the important work of the Naked Heart Foundation.
This year it returned more fabulous than ever to The Roundhouse, London, where artist Camille Walala, was infusing her signature Tribal POP style to transform the iconic venue into a vibrant funfair completed by a full size carousel, for one night only.
Based on a traditional funfair, this unique, off-beat charity fundraiser gave guests the chance to try their luck at everything from the Wheel of Fortune to Hook-a-duck, Skittles and other classic games, winning unbelievably glamorous prizes courtesy of many generous brands including Louis Vuitton, NET-A-PORTER, Valentino, Dom Perignon, Fendi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Dior, Stella McCartney, Maxx Royal Resorts, Givenchy, Guerlain, One & Only Resorts and many more.
Guests were treated to a Veuve Clicquot champagne reception, entertainment from Warner Music Group DJs, and an unforgettable performance by Evelina Girling and Doni Fierro’s The London Cabaret Club.
Celebrity supporters from the worlds of fashion, film, art and music attending this year included Doutzen Kroes, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maria Borges, Dynamo, Eric Underwood, Erin O’Connor, Arizona Muse, Adwoa Aboah, Sam Rollinson, Charlotte Wiggins, Winnie Harlow, Clara Paget, Pixie Lott, Toby Huntington-Whitley, Yasmin Le Bon, Camilla Rutherford and more.
Also returning to the Fund Fair is the Wheel of Fortune, where guests took a spin to win money-can’t-buy prizes. Wheel of Fortune was the central attraction of the event; and its game players were treated to a fantastic evening of Krug Champagne, cocktails from The London EDITION’s Punch Room and delicious Fund Fair style food in an intimate and fun atmosphere reminiscing of St Tropez’ famous Les Caves du Roy.
Guests once again had the unique opportunity to play against iconic names on their favourite fairground attractions, such as:
• Maxx Royal Resorts’ Pineapple Shy
• Louis Vuitton’s Aeroplane Toss
• Net-A-Duck by NET-A-PORTER
• Dom Perignon’s Spin A Bottle
• One & Only Resorts’ Cocktail Bar
• Tarot Reading by Fendi
• Givenchy’s Catapult
• Pearl Pit by Guerlain
• Pair-a-Pair with Giuseppe Zanotti

Founder of the Naked Heart Foundation
Natalia Vodianova describes the event:
“Giving should be a fabulous, fun and unforgettable experience; inspiring our supporters is a crucial part of Naked Heart Foundation’s philosophy in our work helping children with special needs and nothing is more inspiring than laughter and games – all the fun of the fair! Now in its third year, I’m thrilled that the Fabulous Fund Fair has become such an exciting and anticipated part of London's social scene and certainly one of the most instagrammable charity events, raising much needed funds for Naked Heart Foundation’s family support services and accessible play facilities for children of all ages and abilities.”
Natalia’s co-host for London’s Fabulous Fund Fair,
international Supermodel Karlie Kloss adds:
“I am thrilled to support Natalia and the Naked Heart Foundation and be a part of the Fabulous Fund Fair once again. Natalia’s hard work and dedication for this event is an inspiration to everyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of others, especially for our next generation. The Fund Fair is all about supporting great causes and celebrating your inner child, and I could not be more excited to be there with Natalia.”
The Naked Heart Foundation was set up by Natalia Vodianova in 2004 following the Beslan school siege tragedy. Initially founded with the aim of constructing safe and inclusive play facilities in urban areas of Russia, the Foundation later expanded its scope of activities to include support services for families raising children with conditions such as autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and other special needs. To date, the charity has built 177 accessible playgrounds and play parks
in 130 cities and towns across Russia and internationally under its "Play with Purpose" programme. In addition, the organisation carries our extensive work to prevent child institutionalisation and develop a network of free, professional support services for families raising children with special needs under its core "Every Child Deserves a Family" programme.
Thank you for your help!
Ferrari 812 Superfast
The Ferrari 812 Superfast: Geneva world premiere for the new, extreme performance V12 berlinetta. Most powerful ever 800 cv production engine Maranello, 16 February 2017 — Ferrari has selected the 87th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show for the world premiere of the new 12-cylinder berlinetta, the 812 Superfast, the most powerful and fastest Ferrari in the marque’s history.
This new car not only introduces a plethora of innovative features but is also particularly significant as the V12 series marked the official start of the glorious Prancing Horse story in 1947, 70 years ago this year.
The 812 Superfast thus ushers in a new era in Ferrari 12-cylinder history, in doing so building on the invaluable legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf. It is aimed at clients demanding the most powerful and exclusive Ferrari in the range: an uncompromising sports car that will deliver exhilarating driving both on road and track yet also be comfortable enough to allow its owners to enjoy it as an all-round experience.
Powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800 cv, the 812 Superfast is the new benchmark in the mid-front-engined sports car segment, achieving maximum power output at 8,500 rpm, which translates to a specific power output of 123 cv/l. Figures that no other front-engined production car has ever even come near to delivering and which ensure the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive characteristic of Ferrari’s noble V12 heritage. The engine’s power is underscored by a full, rich exhaust sound that exploits the acoustic clout delivered by its increased displacement. Maximum torque is 718 Nm @ 7,000 rpm, a significant 80% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm, improving both driveability and pick-up even at low revs.
These performance levels were achieved in part by adopting a 350 bar direct injection system for the very first time on a high-performance engine and pairing it with variable geometry intake tracts conceptually derived from those of naturally-aspirated F1 engines. The 812 Superfast’s dual-clutch transmission has specific gear ratios which, combined with shorter up and down-shifting times between gears, sharpen throttle response still further.
The 812 Superfast is equipped with leading-edge control systems and components, resulting in unparalleled handling and roadholding. It’s the first Ferrari to sport EPS (Electric Power Steering) which, in accordance with Ferrari’s uncompromising engineering approach, is used to fully exploit the potential of the car’s performance and, through the complete integration with all the electronic vehicle dynamics controls — including the latest 5.0 version of Ferrari’s patented Side Slip Control (SSC) — make its powerful performance easier to handle and even more thrilling to exploit. The vehicle controls also feature, for the first time, the Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 system (PCV) which, following the experience gained with the F12tdf, features a further evolution of the software that improves the nimbleness of the handling and reduces the vehicle response times even further.
Styling and aerodynamics
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the new 812 Superfast redefines the formal language of front-engined V12 Ferraris, underlining the car’s exceptional performance with very sporty lines and proportions. Seen in silhouette, the 812 Superfast has a fastback sleekness: a two-box design with a high tail reminiscent of the glorious 365 GTB4 of 1969. The design of the flanks visually shortens the tail and is characterised by impressively muscular wheelarches which imbue the 812 Superfast with the power and aggression warranted by its imposing V12.
Full-LED headlights integrated into the design of the sculpted air intakes on the bonnet also emphasise that front muscle, integrating with, and wrapping around the front wheelarch. At the rear, four round tail-lights inspired by Ferrari tradition emphasise a design crafted around horizontal lines and give the 812 Superfast a broad, imposing stance, visually lowering both spoiler and cabin.
As with all Ferraris, style and aerodynamic function are seamlessly integrated to produce innovative solutions and forms. Two examples are the multi-functional frontal section, which incorporates a cluster of aerodynamic solutions including active flaps at the front of the underbody, and the rear flank which features an unprecedented aerodynamic by-pass to increase downforce. The car is being launched in a special new colour, Rosso Settanta, which marks the company’s 70th anniversary.
The interior of the 812 Superfast has been revisited in line with the more extreme exterior whilst maintaining unaltered the exceptional on-board comfort and space that Ferrari’s front-engined V12 berlinettas have always offered.
The cabin has been given a sportier, more radical look with the main elements seeming to float, creating an effect of both thoroughbred racing eagerness and lean elegance. The horizontal dash loops stylishly around the central air vents for a sophisticated, sculptural look.
New, more sporty and ergonomic seats feature alongside the new HMI, including new steering wheel and instrument clusters and the latest infotainment and air-conditioning units.

(09.09.2016) de GRISOGONO was delighted to announce the acquisition of The Constellation, the world’s most expensive rough diamond, at a press conferenceheld in the Grand Palais.
The purchase represents a ground-breaking moment for the company in its journey to become one of the world’s leading high jewellery and watch brands.

The gem was purchased for USD 63 million earlier this year, following a competitive bidding process.The Constellation naturally boasts the colour, clarity and carat weighting of an internationally and historically significant stone. It is expected that the cutting process, due to be completed by the middle of 2017, may unveil one of the world’s largest certified flawless diamond.
Speaking about the purchase, Founder and Executive Board member of de GRISOGONO,
Fawaz Gruosi said: “I am thrilled to have the chance to work with such an incredible and important diamond as The Constellation. As a jeweller I am conscious of the extraordinary responsibility I have to the stone and to the team who have worked so hard to secure it. To be able to bring my creative skills to the cutting and setting process of such a stone is both an honour and a privilege and I cannot wait to realise my vision for it.”
de GRISOGONO’s partnership with Nemesis International, allowing the company to market their best stones, reflects its determination to find unique gems from around the world in order to create exceptional and exclusive pieces of art for its clients. It enables de GRISOGONO to access the most precious rough diamonds, manage the entire cutting process and bring the very highest quality stones to its clients, combined with the distinctive de GRISOGONO creativity and craftsmanship.
Turquoise water awaits you at
Do you want to get out of this cold weather, drop everything and find yourself somewhere on the warm coast, under the gentle warm rays of the sun and the smell of salt water, along with the sound of the surf and seagulls in the background? While dreaming that you are slowly drinking coconut milk, in reality you are trying to bundle up warmer as much as possible. Therefore, it is time to arrange a long-awaited vacation and get away from your everyday worries.
This fabulous place is the Maldives — namely the hotel Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives that is
located on the island of Kanefusa in the atoll, 133 km from the international airport of Male. It is a true paradise for a holiday where you can relax not only with your body but also with your soul. The island, on which the hotel is located, occupies an area of 2,000 х 90 m; it is such a small part of land surrounded by the ocean and created just for relaxation. Nature has taken care to ensure that everything on the island is ideal and the hotel staff will do everything possible and impossible to provide you the most comfortable and relaxing staying.
The five-star resort Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives is “all inclusive”, located in a sparsely populated Atoll and is about a 30-minute flight from the airport by seaplane. This incredibly beautiful hotel was opened in December 2013 and impressed everyone with its chic and grand scale. It has 150 rooms with private access to the beach. Another important advantage is that they are all separate from each other and so no one can stop to enjoy the beautiful nature of these places or arrange a private party in your area.
The rooms are luxurious villas that overlook the white sand and turquoise crystal clear water. Each Villa is lined with chic furniture, spacious and has decorative elements in Maldivian style and a bathroom under the open sky. For your enjoyment, there is also a private garden with sun loungers where you can comfortably relax in the shade of the trees.
All the villas have a different style, combining the beauty of the Maldives and the luxury of Italian style. For hotel guests, there is a choice of different apartments — on the shoreline and located on the water. The size of the apartments varies from 50 to 300 sqm. There is a SPA centre to relax and have fun in, where you will find treatment rooms, a sauna, massage, Jacuzzi and a beauty salon.
After the SPA centre, you can spend the evening in one of the 5 elegant restaurants where you can find dishes to satisfy even the most demanding gourmet. The Spice is a buffet, which includes international dishes and themed evenings, restaurants a la carte: Sunset, where you can find Asian, Mediterranean and fusion cuisines, Teppanyaki Grill — Japanese restaurant and vegetarian restaurant Just Veg. Alternatively, you can just have fun at the bar with elite alcoholic drinks. If you want privacy, you can arrange for yourself and your soulmate a romantic dinner on the ocean, and you will remember the rolling surf and fiery sunset for a long time and will make this evening one of the most memorable in your lifetime.
If you enjoy active relaxation, the hotel would be glad to give you excursions and the opportunity to try water sports such as windsurfing, snorkelling and water skiing. In the hotel, there is a diving centre with the required certification (PADI). Also at your disposal are a gym, badminton and tennis court, volleyball, kiteboarding, table tennis, walking and canoeing. In addition, for those who want to have fun, listen to famous DJ sets and dance, the evening disco is open.
Children will also have something to do because the hotel has a children's pool and kids club. If necessary, there are the babysitting services. To adolescents not to get bored, while the adults are busy, there is entertainment at the hotel for them.
Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives is known like one of the best hotels in all the Maldives, where everyone will find a Paradise vacation which they have dreamed of for so long.
A truly vibrant experience awaits future guests of the cruise liner Silver Muse. There, the wildest desires of the most enthusiastic dreamers are brought to life: the design of this ship, its suites with unsurpassed comfort and eight restaurants with skilful world-class chefs, who tirelessly quench the culinary requests of passengers — all of this luxury is unrivalled. Silver Muse is the best of all the ships that have ever sailed the ocean.
The flagship of the cruise fleet — Silver Muse — will depart 19 April 2017 from Monte Carlo (Principality of Monaco), and will bid farewell with a lush ceremony. Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, the Chairman of Silversea Company, highlights: “Silver Muse reflects the philosophy of Silversea, which lies in the balance between excellent service and haute cuisine on small-sized vessels.”
The creation of Silver Muse has its wonderful milestones. Firstly, not just one coin was welded to the vessel's hull as a symbol of good luck required by the naval tradition, but seven: South African Rand, Australian Dollar, American Dollar, Brazilian Real, Italian Euro, Singapore Dollar, an Antarctic Coin and a commemorative silver coin specially minted for this event. The second milestone is the laying of the Silver Muse's keel, which allowed Enzo Vesone, the CEO of Silversea Company, to express the hope that the ship will become a real jewel of the ocean.
The captivating season of the new cruise flagship with 286 luxury cabins has began. This super-luxury ship performed its first 13 day voyage from Monte Carlo to Nice while visiting the most beautiful ports — Barcelona, Valletta, Amalfi and Sorrento along the way. In addition, a unique Easter journey is planned, including Porto Mahon, Livorno and Portofino. “We created a truly boutique vessel. Silver Muse does not claim the title of the world's largest liner, but we strive to provide the best service in the world,” Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio continues: “I want to assure you that those evading Silver Muse will deprive themselves of many pleasures.”
6 January 2017, Silver Muse leaved for its first epic voyage around the world. After passing under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the liner sailed among the paradise islands of the Pacific towards the tempting landscapes of Bali and Bangkok. They will be followed by the temples of India, Persian Gulf kingdoms, pyramids of Egypt, antiquities of Jordan and finally a treasure trove of the Mediterranean... In 116 days, a total of 62 ports in 25 countries around the world will be visited during this journey. Currently, the participants of WORLD CRUISE 2017 are offered a free stay on board the luxury boutique vessel Silver Muse for 3 nights during its inaugural voyage from Nice to Rome 3-6 May 2017. Join now and be among the first to take advantage of the exciting innovations of this unique cruise liner, and enjoy its sophisticated décor and elegant, stylish and handmade-finished suites.
Silversea Cruises — the world-leading cruise line company — described the details of their culinary experience aboard the boutique vessel Silver Muse launched 2017. Six months before the ceremonial departure of the liner from the Principality of Monaco, the company gave details about its eight restaurants, mentioning that no other extra-class cruise liner can impress with similar things, including unsurpassed culinary offers for the guests.
Silversea Cruises exclusive partnership with Relais & Chateaux resulted in the creation of the refined and elegant French restaurant La Dame aboard Silver Muse. The gastronomic excellence of La Dame is particularly noticeable in the menu based on local ingredients and designed by the best chefs of Relais & Chateaux. Visitors will also be offered the most exquisite wines. Aboard the liner, one may also get acquainted with various Asian dishes. Inspired by Kabuki theatre, Japanese dishes are nothing less than melodies of flavour with complex design, while Indo-Chinese meals have an impact directly on all the gourmet's senses at once. Fans of sophisticated scents will be offered to explore the fragrant spices of Mumbai and Thailand markets.
The recently announced Silver Note will bring back the most significant jazz clubs of Manhattan. The best musicians will be playing in an elegant and intimate setting with excellent acoustics, while visitors enjoy delicious "tapas" style meals.
Hot Rocks is one of the most creative restaurants aboard the liner and an acclaimed favourite.Guests can choose the best meat, fish and vegetables, order a dish cooked on volcanic stones heated up to 400 degrees Celsius, and eat it outdoors.
La Terrazza Restaurant is another twist of culinary delights by Silversea Cruises. Inspired by traditional Italian cuisine, where seafood lovers eat while looking at the waves, visitors are greeted by the hospitably-opened doors of Mozzarella Bar, Salumeria and Olive Oil Basement.
Yet another Italian style restaurant — Regina Margherita — offers its visitors luxurious dishes of the Apennine Peninsula throughout the day, where pizza can be ordered and eaten right by the poolside. In Atlantide, gourmets will discover the edible richness of the underwater world: king crabs and blue lobsters will be offered along with the best steaks delivered from the shore. "Gourmet dinners are the strength of the ultimately luxurious service of Silversea Cruiser," says Roberto Martinolli, the Company's CEO: "We are proud that our new boutique flagship Silver Muse raises the level of service to an unimaginable height, and its eight restaurants are an unprecedented experience of premium-class meal planning on a vessel."
Silver Muse opens a new chapter in sea travels on high-comfort smaller vessels, where one can sail in an atmosphere of intimacy and comfort, but also allows passengers to enjoy a large comfortable bathtub in every guest room, which is a distinguishing feature and a hallmark of the services provided by Silversea Company. The emergence of the cruise liner Silver Muse allowed the company to increase its fleet of ships and significantly raise the level of luxury in the cruise market of outstanding comfort.
Led by Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Silversea Cruises Company has been recognised as an innovator in the industry of extra-luxury cruise lines. The company offers its clients ships with a full range of facilities on board. Luxury ships — Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse — are designed with the sole purpose of making the trip unforgettable for their passengers by creating an atmosphere of festivity and casual elegance. In 2018, we expect to replenish our fleet with new vessels. Silversea routes cover all continents; luxury cruises in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and the polar region will acquaint travellers with thousands of the most attractive places on the world map.
