This anniversary issue is a blueprint of that philosophy. Our special section, Innite Luxury shifts the spotlight on ten exquisite experiences to satiate our senses with. What is the pinnacle of sartorial gratication? A diamondstudded, bulletproof and air-conditioned suit. The ultimate trip of 2016? We say, an outing to the southernmost corner of earth – Antarctica. A personal submarine, state-of-the-art helicopter, the most expensive restaurant in the world and a pet worth $ 1 million… and not to forget, Buck island, a 43-acre personal nirvana point in the Caribbean. Take a peek into the lifestyle of a lifetime. Just as satiation and regalement is build deep in our genes so are the seeds of fortitude.
