COCHINE 2019 Father's Day Pick

This Father's Day brings a little luxury to his life with a gift from Cochine’s Agarwood & Amber candle to infuse his home with a sense of indulgent luxury. This rich and sensuous candle combines Agarwood with the warmth of White Amber, Tuberose and Patchouli. Agarwood is a precious resinous wood indigenous to Vietnam where it is known as the "Wood of the Gods". Highly sought after due to the unique richness of its fragrance, it was harvested almost to extinction last century. Cochine sources its Agarwood oil from a project investing in small farms in southern Vietnam to produce very high quality, sustainable Agarwood oil. Cochine candles are made using the finest essential oils, eco-friendly cotton wicks and the creamiest botanical wax from renewable resources. We are dedicated to using this more natural alternative to paraffin wax. Elegantly packaged in Cochine signature gift boxes, Cochine candles will add style and luxury to any home. With over 50 hours’ burn time, Cochine candles will gently infuse any room to create a delicately evocative and inspiring atmosphere.

Groupe GM X Pascal Morabito Celebrate 20 Years of Partnership

Groupe GM is celebrating 20 years of partnership with French jewel designer, sculptor and poet Pascal Morabito and redesigns the line to make it more eco-friendly. Pascal Morabito has been an artistic visionary for almost 50 years, creating avant-garde jewellery and sculptures since 1970. He is known for creating masterpieces and his hotel lines are no exception. In 2000, Pascal Morabito launched his first hotel line with Groupe GM, marking an entirely new venture for him. When designing his collections, Pascal Morabito wanted to create something signature and contemporary. Morabito currently has two exclusive hotel lines with Groupe GM – the Contemporary Line and the Premier Line – both with exquisite attention to detail and flawless execution. 

As the name suggests, the Contemporary Line offers guests a modern take on the traditional hotel line, with a fresh, revitalizing fragrance and sleek product design. After a successful launch for the Contemporary Line, Morabito released the Premier Line, which offers guests a subtle blend of luxury and refinement and generous bottle and soap sizes. Pascal Morabito has elevated the traditional hotel line, placing opulence in the hands of guests across the world. Morabito and Groupe GM both share a dedication to luxury, style and quality, which has allowed this partnership to prevail over the past 20 years. In light of this 20-year milestone, Groupe GM is excited to evolve even further and to continue its partnership with Pascal Morabito. Innovation is at the forefront of the Pascal Morabito brand, and Groupe GM is now making increased efforts to channel this innovation within the guest amenity sector. 

Throughout the years, Groupe GM has remained passionate in making responsible and informed decisions when it comes to its environmental footprint. In 2018, it announced its Care About Earth program, which aimed to contribute to sustainable production by adopting oxo-biodegradable packaging and renewable raw materials. In keeping with Groupe GM’s tradition of sustainable values, Pascal Morabito soaps are now pleat-wrapped instead of film-wrapped. This has drastically reduced the amount of plastic used during manufacturing, without compromising on style.

The St. Regis Bangkok - A Sense of Luxury

Celebrated by the modern connoisseur throughout the world, St. Regis heritage, timeless traditions and impeccable service are the hallmarks of the St. Regis experience. mylifestylenews writes.


When travel plans are made, is location your prior consideration when choosing a hotel? Would the innovative facilities or the comfort of the bed be more important than the impeccable service that impresses? With that in mind, The St. Regis Bangkok strives to make your stay exquisite with a sense of luxury and a memorable one by its unprecedented excellence in standards of hospitality, innovation and refinement.


There are quite a few centrally located luxury hotels in Bangkok now that have the direct access and link to the BTS Skytrain via the skybridge. The St. Regis Bangkok is with no exception and prestigiously located at Bangkok’s prime shopping precinct on the bustling Rajadamri Road directly overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club.


The arrival experience at The St. Regis Bangkok will certainly have you entering in a haven of luxury in style, with the soaring high ceilinged lobby that is designed in a timeless and contemporary style décor. You are met with a long runway carpeted flooring dividing both left and right of the lobby lounge with sleek and modern lounge chairs and sofas on a mix of printed velvety fabrics together with some earth tone colors that enhance the already cozy ambience. Natural lighting breaks through the uninterrupted glassed wall making an ideal place for a good afternoon tea get together.


The juxtaposition of the giant floor lantern ornaments adds an artistic flair with sophistication adorned with lavish purple orchids that sits on the round glass table top in the middle of the foyer, which is simply tasteful and elegant.


Reception and check-in are done on the 12th floor next to the Sky Lobby as well as the all-day-dining Viu restaurant and both embrace an elevated view of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, and beyond.


Our room was assigned to a Grand Deluxe category (also with the Royal Bangkok Sports Club & Golf Course view) with an exclusive residential style that exudes Thai traditions and contemporary design. The 55sqm room offers an urban escape with sophisticated interiors featuring the finest timber finishes and harmonized with an earth tone cream palette throughout.


The oversized bathroom can be accessed through sliding doors from the bedside of the room or from a separate door next to the room entry with His and Her marble sinks well allocated. The deep soaking tub may have occupied half of the bathroom size and can be quite claustrophobic if and when the sliding doors are closed. The mounted rainfall showerhead possesses strong pressure along side with some premium toiletries making your shower more pleasing and not forgetting the plush St. Regis robe which is another delight from the room amenities provided.


In spite of the excessive size of the chosen furniture in consideration of the room size, it may have taken over the space somewhat, but it does not mismatch with the entire rooms décor. In addition, the signature St. Regis Bed with designer 300-thread count linens ensure you will have a good night sleep.


The St. Regis Butler Service has been a treasured hallmark of the St. Regis experience for more than one hundred years. 24-hour Butler service is offered here or eButler with services that are accessible at any hour via email with request that are to be delivered with personal attention. No request is too small or unattainable no matter what the hour of the day, the personalized service ensures your unique preferences are understood and addressed flawlessly during your stay. Indeed, our garment sent for pressing was returned as the same day as requested and the heartfelt turndown rituals with special amenities. We won’t tell you just yet what was offered but for you to discover the enhanced refinement when you next stay here.


Surrounded by a beautiful tropical landscape away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the outdoor swimming pool is an oasis for further relaxation.


Frangipanis and palm trees frame the pool side area with hedges of green, providing seclusion within this little haven along side with the traditional Thai towering lamps elegantly distributed around the pool area, which accentuate an even more prestige and prominent setting.


The in house Elemis Spa is an additional sojourn of pampering and relaxation to unwind. When it comes to dining, Jojo offers you a true taste of Italy and be amazed by their well stocked wine selection from around the globe.

Breakfast is served on the 12th floor at VIU. With a great Continental selection and local Thai delicacies to chose from, plus quite a few live cooking stations, they really cook up a storm for more than just a hearty breakfast. Even Khao Mun Gai (Thai chicken rice) is served as well as Grilled pork belly. French toast with passion fruits and mango is highly recommended or rejuvenate your body with various vitamin intakes from its signature juice bar that offer a great mix of natural fresh juices and smoothies that help to detox the excess toxin from your body.


When contemporary luxury meets modern technology as well as with some delectable gastronomy that pampers your stay within the hotel complex, The St. Regis Bangkok continues to echo the renowned standards of hospitality and refinement to make every moment become a treasure while living a life exquisitely home away from home.

The new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Coupé and Spyder have made their highly-anticipated debut in Hong Kong, opening an important new chapter for the Lamborghini V10 product family with groundbreaking technological innovation and exquisite performance leading with the presence of Mr. Francesco Scardaoni, Managing Director of Automobili Lamborghini Mainland China, Hong Kong & Macau and Mr. Mitja Borkert, Head of Design of Automobili Lamborghini Centro Stile alongside with Mr. Leo Wong, Managing Director of Lamborghini Hong Kong and Mr. Albert Wong, Director of Lamborghini Hong Kong.


The Huracán EVO Spyder was presented in stunning Verde Selvans (green), shined in its exquisite lines of a sensational convertible. The Spyder incorporates all the performance, next-generation vehicle control and aerodynamic features of the EVO coupé, with its own unique personality and a driving excitement that only an open-top car can offer. Particularly with the roof open, the emotive sound of the naturally aspirated engine and the refined, lightweight exhaust system take the sensory experience to a new level, delivering a truly passionate driving experience.

Unveiled in a striking Arancio Xanto (orange) paint, the Huracán EVO Coupé features the 5.2 l naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, uprated to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound, with Titanium intake valves and refined lightweight exhaust system. The distinctive design defines the aerodynamic superiority and enhanced driving dynamics of the Huracán EVO Coupé. A new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality, but more importantly assures aerodynamic efficiency via the front splitter with integrated wing. Distinctively, the enlarged air intakes feature the Ypsilon shape that is inherent in Lamborghini design DNA. The Huracán EVO Coupé features new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering and a torque vectoring system working on the four wheels, while at the heart of the car is the new feature of Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI): a Central Processing Unit that controls every aspect of the car’s dynamic behavior to assure perfect driving dynamics.

PRADA Linea Rossa SS2019 Collection

 PRADA Linea Rossa SS2019 Collection is a new perspective, a fusion of sportswear and contemporary elegance: the Prada Linea Rossa SS2019 collection features garments designed with avant-garde techniques and made of innovative, futuristic materials.

The men's, women's and unisex garments have relaxed or slim fit silhouettes to permit the best performance in any occasion. The Prada Linea Rossa digital campaign is a technoid take on the classic technique of chronophotography, which captures multiple frames of motion and combines them into a single image.


Lineisy Montero and Jun Young are the protagonists of the video in a succession of moments that reveal, as if in a parallel reality, the invisible energy of our daily actions and infinitesimal ways of being.
