EDITOR’S LET­TER

Prestige Hong Kong - - CONTENTS - Tama Miyake Lung | MAN­AG­ING EDITOR

Af­ter a suc­ces­sion of four – al­beit hand­some, ac­com­plished – men on the cover of Pres­tige, we’re ex­cited to bring you not one but two in­cred­i­ble women with this Novem­ber is­sue. Best friends Suki Water­house and Poppy Jamie ex­em­plify the can-do at­ti­tude of young women to­day. Be­sides jointly launch­ing their hit hand­bag line, Pop & Suki, the Bri­tish pair are busy with in­di­vid­ual projects rang­ing from act­ing in Hol­ly­wood movies to de­sign­ing well­ness apps. Our editor at large, Jing Zhang, was lucky enough to hang out with them in their adopted home of Los An­ge­les and share their story with us first hand. Else­where in this is­sue, we delve into all the hottest hap­pen­ings around town and across the globe. Our fash­ion cov­er­age takes you from the south of France with Louis Vuit­ton’s Ni­cholas Gh­esquière to Shang­hai with de­sign leg­end Jimmy Choo and back to Paris to meet the cre­ative mind be­hind milliner Mai­son Michel. Se­nior editor Jon Wall finds him­self be­hind the wheel and – lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively – blown away by Lam­borgh­ini’s lat­est Aven­ta­dor on the leg­endary Cir­cuito do Es­to­ril in Por­tu­gal. And not to be left out, I re­port back from my re­cent visit to Switzer­land for the grand open­ing of the iconic Bür­gen­stock Re­sort. Closer to home, we meet co-founder Edouard Roschi of cult fra­grance brand Le Labo at his Hong Kong bou­tique and check in to the oth­er­worldly Amanyangyun out­side of Shang­hai. It’s the kind of place so­ci­ety editor P.Ra­makr­ish­nan might need to spend a few days – or weeks? – af­ter dig­ging out from the del­uge of party in­vites from the past few months and the hol­i­day crush to come. Fi­nally, be sure to check out art writer ex­traor­di­naire Stephen Short’s take on two mon­u­men­tal works com­ing up for auc­tion this month: David Hock­ney’s Por­trait of an Artist (Pool with Two Fig­ures), which could well be­come the most valu­able work of art by a liv­ing artist ever sold at auc­tion, and Ed­ward Hop­per’s Chop Suey, which is es­ti­mated to sell at a whop­ping US$70 mil­lion. Be sure to let us know if you’re the lucky bid­der – and if not, en­joy all the ex­cite­ment the auc­tions and the rest of the month have to of­fer. And in case you were won­der­ing, as I write this, there’s less than 60 days till Christ­mas...
