Montblanc Launches Its First Full Luggage Collection

With all the luxury products Montblanc produces in so many categories it’s surprising that the German luxury brand did not have a full luggage collection in its inventory.
“At Montblanc, we are well known for being with our clients as lifetime companions,” Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO, said in a recent interview. “Our clients take a bit of Montblanc at all stages of the day: The watch, the wallet, the writing instrument, the eye glasses. With our clients so much more on the move, a full luggage collection was definitely something that was missing.”
Not anymore as the luxury brand launched the #MY4810 Trolley Collection, a five-piece line of travel bags that Baretzki says combines style, practicality and personalization for the modern, connected traveler.

Luxury campers looking for a unique experience can now head to the far north of Europe and enjoy a glamping holiday like no other beside the sandy beaches and Caribbean-esque waters of Northern Norway.

A new eco-camp above the Arctic Circle is pitched in the unspoilt Lofoten Islands and allows travellers to spend long Arctic summer days, and the 24 hours of uninterrupted Midnight Sun in June and July, next to the white sands and clear seas.
Ideal for anyone searching for an alternative to the summer heat of the Mediterranean, Lofoten provides comfortable 15C temperatures.

Jumeirah plans third ‘super luxury’ brand, to double hotel count Jumeirah will eventually add one more hotel brand to its stable, chief executive Jose Silva declared in an interview speaking to the press for the first time since taking over the top position in January. As the company enters its next phase of expansion, targeting global markets whilst shoring up its pre-eminence at home in the UAE, Silva says that ultimately the company will look to create three separate identities, complementing the eponymous Jumeirah brand and the recently introduced Zabeel House with a third, super-luxury hotel offering. “We may one day have … three brands. I see our future very clearly as [having] two to three tiers,” Silva said. The third brand would likely be “an ultra-luxury brand … it could be an extension of the Burj Al Arab, super luxury,” he said. http://ow.ly/TGuP50hJMia

Why Luxury Hotels Are Under Siege From Instagram Poseurs
Top tier resorts now face a deluge of comp requests from alleged online influencers.

Instagram and other social media influencers can leverage their social media clout to travel the world, frequently enjoying luxury accommodations at very little personal cost. These elite personalities, who can blast a positive mention of a brand to millions of people, are usually personally invited by hotel brands to stay with them. But now wannabe Instagram influencers are increasingly trying to score the same deals, leaving luxury hotels scrambling to figure out which of the many requests for all-expense-paid vacations to grant. Kate Jones, marketing and communications manager at the Dusit Thani, a five-star resort in the Maldives told The Atlantic that her hotel gets at least six requests from influencers a day, usually through Instagram direct message. She said only about 10 percent of the requests she receives are worth even investigating.
But some hotels are so overwhelmed by the requests from self-described influencers that they have just opted out of the game altogether. In January, a luxury boutique hotel in Ireland banned all YouTubers and Instagram stars after a 22-year-old requested a free, five-night stay in exchange for exposure.
Influencers think that there is fundamental misunderstanding of the value exchange. Instagram has more than 800 million monthly active users, many of whom come for travel ideas, and influencers claim that the promotion they can offer hotels helps those brands reach new audiences. Though they are not totally incorrect, hotels are still trying to figure out guidelines for who they do—and don’t—welcome.

Speaking about Morpheus during a recent earnings call, Ho said, “Morpheus is more than just another building. It is an architectural masterpiece and will become a tourist attraction in Macau – an icon for quality, taste and vision.

LUDOVIC LAZARETH LM847 – $217,000
The Ludovic Lazareth LM847 produces 470hp and is composed of carbon fiber, aluminum, and glass. Like the Dodge Tomahawk (the closest thing we have to compare), the LM847 uses four wheels instead of two to create a stable platform for cornering. Still, it would take guts to do anything besides holding on for dear life while riding in a straight line. Top speed and 0 to 60 mph specs haven’t been released, but we do know the Lazareth costs $217,000. That’s about twice the cost of a Maserati Gran Turismo, which uses the same engine.
