The Ultimates Award issue – is the one you simply can’t miss.
Our annual roundup of our favourite people, places and things is back and we promise it will leave you with some privileged inside info on everything from multi-million dollar art to the world’s most amazing destinations. To kick things off, we take you behind the scenes of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, which is finally opening its doors and we meet the ambitious visionary who made it all happen. Then it’s off for a tour of the most impressive architectural feats, from a dream modern home in Jeddah, to a pied-à-terre in London, via a super-sleek, award-winning museum in Palestine. You’ll also meet the imaginative Middle Eastern shoe designer who collaborated with Rihanna’s stylist and find out why we think Versace came out on top of the fashion game this year. And because you deserve a break, we’ve found the world’s best places to escape the everyday at the St Regis Vommuli in Maldives and the Ritz Carlton in Geneva – but just in case you need to stay closer to home, we give you a sneak peek at Dubai’s most talked about show, La Perle by Dragone. Plus, find out our choice of the year’s fiercest vehicles. Yes, you need this issue.
