EL­E­GANT PRINCESS

FRON­TRUN­NERS Mak­ing its re­gional de­but, Princess Yachts P62 cer­tainly looks im­pres­sive.

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Fron­trun­ners - THE LAT­EST IN LUX­URY By DARYL LEE

Hot on the heels of the S60 sport yacht last year comes its more re­strained coun­ter­part, the sim­i­larly sized P62, a fly­bridge model.

As is typ­i­cal of all Princess Yachts mod­els, the main sa­loon is bathed in nat­u­ral light thanks to mas­sive glazed sur­faces, which only serves to en­hance the beauty of the cabin (cus­tomis­able to your lik­ing, nat­u­rally). Tim­ber floor­ing matches the fix­tures and fur­ni­ture for an added touch of class. The 19m yacht also has a pair of sun­pads – one lo­cated aft and an­other just ahead of the su­per­struc­ture. Be­low decks, the P62 will ac­com­mo­date up to six guests across three en-suite cab­ins (the guest cabin fea­tures twin beds that can be com­bined), with an op­tion for an­other twin cabin aft. The P62, which is equipped with a pair of Volvo marine en­gines, will reach a top speed of up to 32 knots, rather im­pres­sive con­sid­er­ing its main re­mit is cruis­ing, not bruis­ing. www.princessy­achts.com ≠

MRus­sia gears up for the FIFA World Cup in style.

erg­ing foot­ball cul­ture, nightlife and vin­tage sportswear in one col­lec­tion, Rus­sian fash­ion de­signer, pho­tog­ra­pher and film­maker Gosha Rubchin­skiy’s take on the up­com­ing 2018 FIFA World Cup throws the spot­light on St Peters­burg. Col­lab­o­ra­tions with Adi­das, Burberry, milliner Stephen Jones and eye­wear brand Su­per by Ret­ro­su­per­future have given rise to a col­lec­tion pep­pered with ref­er­ences to the city’s 1990s rave scene, vin­tage track­suits and foot­ball gear. This over­sized, re­worked jacket (RM3,790), for in­stance, helps cre­ate a look rooted in his­tory but look­ing to the fu­ture.

The Beau­ti­ful Game

MAuc­tioned by Christie’s in New York for US$ 150,000 ( RM581,400).

ost likely com­mis­sioned by a Dutch tea mer­chant in the mid-18th cen­tury, this ex­ceed­ingly rare porce­lain group­ing was one of the stars of Christie’s Chi­nese Ex­port Art auc­tion in mid-jan­uary. The painted dishes - cre­ated dur­ing China’s Qian­long pe­riod - depict the var­i­ous stages of tea cul­ti­va­tion within bor­ders of ro­cail­lerie and come in var­i­ous sizes, with the largest mea­sur­ing 38.5cm in di­am­e­ter. There are 23 sub­jects known in the se­ries, num­bered on each plate’s re­verse in blue un­der­glaze, but not in a log­i­cal or­der. www.christies.com
