They say there’s no bet­ter way to kick-start a new year than mak­ing a pos­i­tive change. That’s why you’ll no­tice this month’s is­sue looks, well, quite dif­fer­ent – right on cue to ring in 2019 on an ex­cit­ing note! We’ve given Pres­tige a com­plete de­sign makeover to keep up with the times. Our all-new look is stylish, cur­rent and ty­po­graph­i­cally pro­gres­sive, all in the hope of en­hanc­ing your read­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Reg­u­lar col­umns and fea­tures are still in­tact, but you’ll no­tice a few new ad­di­tions as we con­tinue to tweak the new de­sign over the com­ing months. Speak­ing of style, cover per­son­al­ity and ho­tel heiress Sikanya “Pau” Sak­tidej Bhanubandh is con­sis­tently one of Bangkok’s best-dressed ladies. And we quickly dis­cov­ered why dur­ing the photo shoot. While Pau is lots of fun to work with – a glass of cham­pagne al­ways in arm’s reach – she is a per­fec­tion­ist and knows ex­actly what she wants. Be­ing an it-girl comes nat­u­rally for her, thanks to an in­nate sense of style. As is cus­tom­ary, we tra­verse the globe to bring you the very best in lux­ury life­style trends this month – from fash­ion, beauty, watches and jew­ellery to real es­tate, in­te­rior dé­cor, cars, travel and din­ing. There’s in­spi­ra­tion galore to spoil your loved ones over the Fes­tive Sea­son, and ideas on how to spend your down-time. As we come to the end of the year, it’s al­ways a good idea to re­flect on the past year; high­lights, tri­umphs and other mile­stones – and to give our­selves a pat on the back. And look­ing at the year ahead, I’m go­ing to stick to my lit­tle ob­ses­sion with mak­ing lists. There’s such in­for­ma­tion over­load in the so­ci­ety we live in, and lists are my strong­est ally to keep track of what I need to and should do – like catch­ing up with old friends, mak­ing time for things that make me happy, and trav­el­ling to at least one new des­ti­na­tion. What­ever your wish for the New Year, we hope it will be re­alised. Thank you for your sup­port through­out the year, and may 2019 bring you and yours all the hap­pi­ness and suc­cess you de­serve.
