to the new and im­proved Pres­tige! Reg­u­lar read­ers may no­tice we’ve painted the walls, re­ar­ranged the fur­ni­ture and ti­died up the clut­ter. It seems some­how fit­ting, then, that we’re putting the fin­ish­ing touches to this is­sue as the city lit­er­ally – and un­for­tu­nately – digs its way out from the dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects of Ty­phoon Mangkhut. But we Hongkongers have been through a lot over the years and it’s safe to say we’ll come back from the storm even stronger and, dare we say, bet­ter than be­fore. That’s a bit how it feels hav­ing spent months work­ing on and an­tic­i­pat­ing the re­lease of the re­vamp is­sue you now hold in your hands. Thanks to our par­ent com­pany Burda’s creative team in Sin­ga­pore and our own de­sign crew led by the ta­lented and tire­less Gigi Lee, Pres­tige has a fresh new look and an ex­cit­ing new for­mat. Be­sides the reg­u­lar fea­tures and fash­ion shoots you’ve come to love, we’ve ex­panded the Agenda sec­tion to in­clude a ton of news and need-to-know in­for­ma­tion from the worlds of style, beauty, toys, travel, art, cul­ture and other life­style precincts. Call me bi­ased, but flip­ping through this is­sue is par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing. Not only do we have a rare one-on-one with charis­matic ac­tor and UN­HCR am­bas­sador Jung Woo-Sung, but also a slew of ex­clu­sives, from hot par­ties around Hong Kong to fea­tures rang­ing from a con­ver­sa­tion with An­gelina Jolie to a date with Delvaux artis­tic di­rec­tor Christina Zeller in Bei­jing cel­e­brat­ing the 60th an­niver­sary of the Bril­lant hand­bag. We present a pho­toes­say by our fre­quent col­lab­o­ra­tor Un­til Chan, who in­stead of shoot­ing his usual dreamy fash­ion spreads has turned his lens to the young Hongkongers who are keep­ing tra­di­tional arts such as erhu, opera and cal­lig­ra­phy alive. Se­nior – in more ways than one – Ed­i­tor Jon Wall takes us for a spin in the classy, charm­ing and com­fort­able Mercedes-Benz E 400 Cabri­o­let, and for­mer staffer Andrew Dem­bina gets the scoop on an in­cred­i­ble 33-course feast be­ing imag­ined and ex­e­cuted by Le Pan chef Ed­ward Voon. And let’s not for­get our spe­cial re­ports on the lat­est in lux­ury liv­ing, daz­zling jew­els and men’s fash­ion for au­tumn/win­ter. This is­sue truly has it all, and a great look to go with it. We can only hope it brings you a bit of joy and re­spite af­ter Mangkhut and in the – we can only hope – sun­nier days ahead.
