ARE WE THERE YET?

Prestige Hong Kong - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

The end of the year is al­ways such a blur, with the rush of hol­i­day par­ties, school events and busi­ness mat­ters to wrap up. And don’t get me started on Christ­mas, which seems to creep up on us ear­lier and ear­lier each year. In the midst of all the crazi­ness, it’s nice to take even just a mo­ment to re­flect on the 12 months gone by and brace our­selves for the months to come. Which is where I find my­self now, madly dash­ing to fin­ish this is­sue but tak­ing a few min­utes to ac­knowl­edge what we’ve man­aged to ac­com­plish. Not only do we get to end the year with a bang – aka the beau­ti­ful Span­ish ac­tress Úrsula Corberó – but we also proudly present our first-ever ded­i­cated sup­ple­ment on Hong Kong’s 40 most in­trigu­ing, ac­com­plished and game-chang­ing men and women un­der 40 years old. 40 Un­der 40 is a true labour of love, with ev­ery sin­gle par­tic­i­pant styled, pho­tographed and in­ter­viewed by our tal­ented team. This De­cem­ber is­sue, mean­while, fea­tures a host more fas­ci­nat­ing fig­ures and sto­ries from around the world. Uber-stylists Olivia Tsang and Tasha Ling bring us two stun­ning photo shoots that per­fectly cap­ture the hol­i­day mood. Our fash­ion and fea­tures ed­i­tor Zaneta Cheng re­ports back from her re­cent jaunts among the ele­phants and an­telopes of Zim­babwe, as well as the fash­ion-world lu­mi­nar­ies at the Golden Heart Awards co-hosted by Michael Kors in New York, and shares an in­ti­mate con­ver­sa­tion with Shiatzy Chen founder Madame Wang at her Paris bou­tique. Ed­i­tor at large Jing Zhang also criss-crosses the globe, talk­ing to hote­lier ex­traor­di­naire and Stu­dio 54 co-founder Ian Schrager in Shang­hai and check­ing out the land­mark ex­hi­bi­tion of Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex Le­ices­ter jour­nal in Florence. The guys are get­ting in on the ac­tion too, with se­nior ed­i­tor Jon Wall play­ing in the mud with Rolls-Royce in Wyoming, copy ed­i­tor Steve Reels turn­ing clods of peat at the High­land Park dis­tillery in Orkney and so­ci­ety ed­i­tor P.Ramakrishnan pop­ping up at all the hottest events in Hong Kong. And fi­nally, all of our Pres­tige elves have been work­ing tire­lessly to bring you our big­gest and best Christ­mas gift guide ever. All you have to do is flip to page 169 and start mak­ing your lists. And be sure to fol­low us on In­sta­gram (@pres­tigehk) to join our in­cred­i­ble 12 Days of Christ­mas give­away cam­paign, kick­ing off on De­cem­ber 13. From our fam­ily to yours, we wish you the hap­pi­est of hol­i­days and look for­ward to see­ing you again in 2019! face­book.com/pres­tige­hongkong @pres­tigehk @Pres­tige_HK
