DUCATI

SUPERBIKE THE TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE NEW 959 PANIGALE ARE THOSE OF A LARGE-DISPLACEMENT SUPERBIKE, WITH INCREASED ACCESSIBILITY. THE PERFECT BALANCE FOR HIGHPERFORMANCE RIDING IN ALL CONDITIONS, FROM THE STREET TO THE TRACK. LUXURY MOTORCYCLES The perfect balance Fied with a new, more powerful engine with slipper clutch, ready to unbridle a racing aitude. Built on an improved chassis integrating a monocoque frame, together with fully adjustable suspension. Poised between road and track, between pure performance, technology and effortless handling, the 959 Panigale sports a breathtaking design. The ideal adrenaline-booster in the form of a Ducati superbike. Power and versatility Advanced engine, updated design The technology and performance of the new 959 Panigale match the levels of models with large engines, and combine with greater versatility for use in all conditions, from the city to the track.

|6|


More enjoyable on the road, more exciting on track The new 955 cc twin-cylinder, the ďŹ rst Euro 4 homologated Superquadro, boasts a new stroke value and many other interventions that have led to a higher torque curve and greater maximum power, now equal to 157 hp at 10,500 rpm.

Unmistakable lines: Rear The new tail, divided into two sections, completes the design of the 959 Panigale, further enhanced by new details such as dierently shaped footpegs, made from machined billet aluminium, for the perfect combination of beauty and functionality.

Racing details: Front Every detail of the 959 Panigale is a tribute to the Ducati racing tradition. A wider and more protective screen that ensures greater aerodynamic penetration, new air vents on the fairing and new rear-view mirrors complete the front fairing.

Superbike DNA: Frame As with the bigger 1299 Panigale, the set-up of the 959 Panigale is entrusted to a compact monocoque structure, in fused aluminium to increase its resistance, using the Superquadro engine as a structural element. www.ducati.com

FORTNUM & 300 YEARS & COUNTING LUXURY FOOD

FOR THREE CENTURIES FORTNUM'S HAS BEEN COMMITTED TO BRINGING THE WORLD'S BEST FOOD TO ITS FLAGSHIP STORE ON PICCADILLY – OFTEN FROM CONTINENTS AWAY.

Fresh food, though, has always come from as close to these Isles as possible. Respecting this hemisphere's seasons has always seemed obvious to us: we've never really wavered from the path. 1707 - Fortnum meets Mason Hugh Mason had a small shop in St James’s Market and a spare room in his house, which was taken by William Fortnum, a footman in Queen Anne’s household. The Royal Family’s insistence on having new candles every night le the budding entrepreneur enough wax for a sideline that gave him enough money to start what was to become Fortnum & Mason. 1794 - Postal Service In the days before the General Post Office, anybody could set up a business to send and receive mail. Fortnum’s had leerboxes for paid and unpaid leers which were picked up six times a day. Soldiers and sailors, already among the company’s best customers, received a discount. This lasted until 1839 and the founding of the GPO.

|8|

1815 - Waterloo Fortnum & Mason – the foremost establishment in a "nation of shopkeepers" - helped the army march on its stomach to final victory over Napoleon. Honey, dried fruits, spices and above all preserves were ideal for the campaigning soldier and were advertised as such in The Times. 1851 - Dickens and the hamper By the time of the Great Exhibition of 1851, readyto-eat dishes were all the rage. Fortnum & Mason led a trend in luxury foods, with dishes such as "poultry and game in aspic, hard-boiled eggs in forcemeat (the famous "Scoish egg"), dry and green turtle, boar's head, truffles, mangoes… all decorated and prepared so as to require no cuing." This evolved into its famous hampers which became popular at events such as the Henley Regaa and horse racing at Ascot. Charles Dickens wrote of one Epsom Derby; "Look where I will.... I see Fortnum & Mason. All the hampers fly wide open and the green downs burst into a blossom of lobster salad!"


est. 1707

& MASON

1855 - Crimea, Queen Victoria and The Lady with the Lamp The Crimean War was the first to be covered by on-the-spot reporters. Their reports highlighted the appalling conditions soldiers had to cope with, especially in hospitals. The Queen took a personal interest, sending Fortnum's an order "to dispatch without delay to Miss Nightingale in Scutari a huge consignment of concentrated beef tea" aer the scandal of the hospitals had become known in England. 1886 - Baked Beans and Mr Heinz When an American called Mr Heinz came around with five cases of samples of his canned food, Fortnum & Mason took them all, giving the country its first taste of his famous baked beans. 1922 - Everest Fortnum's food was an essential part of any big expedition to the far reaches of the Empire, from Africa to the Himalayas. For the 1922 Everest expedition, the store supplied 60 tins of quail in foie gras and four dozen boles of champagne (Montebello 1915).

Second World War Fortnum's opened a special Officers' Department dedicated to providing something different to bully beef. Officers were also able to get insect powder, exotic cigarees and other essentials such as the silver-plated “Spork”, a combination knife-and fork. 1984 - Christmas hit In November 1984, Fortnums made national news when it sold the "Do They Know It's Christmas?" single, the song wrien by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for relief of the famine in Ethiopia. 1999 - Web savvy Fortnums launches its first online store with just hampers - 50 of them. Today it features over 800 products. www.fortnumandmason.com

VOLZHENKA

CAVIAR VOLZHENKA IS A FAMILY-OWNED, ASTRAKHAN-BASED LEADER IN BREEDING AND PRODUCING WORLD-CLASS CAVIAR.

For more than half a century they have devoted their competencies solely to the business of caviar. From the grandfather who was director of the only breeding facility in Astrakhan, to the current purveyors who are commied to refreshing tradition, they continue to remain devoted to the cause. Inspired by a rich heritage, Volzhenka has the experience, creativity and leadership to shape the future of the caviar market. As the holding company for some of the world’s rarest sturgeons, they only use centuries-old techniques and recipes passed down through generations. Their dream is to continuously deliver moments of euphoria through our exquisite caviar. QUALITY Not only is their caviar of the highest maturity (grade 4), it is also individually selected for its size and consistency. To guarantee caviar of superior taste, Volzhenka’s caviar is only obtained during specific times of the year, when the water temperature is no higher than 16 degrees and no lower than 14. The caviar is processed and salted using secret recipes that were founded in the city of Astrakhan, Russia over five hundred years ago. It

comes with no preservatives and has a short shelf life of 2 to 3 months, offering the maximum preservation of the taste. SUSTAINABILITY At Volzhenka, they are commied to ecological responsibility at every stage. Caviar is a noble delicacy and they believe that its sturgeons deserve the highest respect. With many species becoming endangered, Volzhenka prides itself on safeguarding the production of caviar to ensure future generations of wild sturgeons. As well as producing exquisite products, Volzhenka also gives part of the produced roe for cultivation, which are ultimately released into the Caspian Sea basin in order to regenerate the wild population. www.volzhenka.com

CHILTERN F Chiltern Firehouse celebrates contemporary, ingredient-focused cooking, with an underlying American accent. Michelin-starred chef Nuno Mendes draws on a career split between the United States and Europe to create a changing menu of reimagined classics and bold new flavours, with an emphasis on seasonality and healthy eating. The restaurant is the latest offering from hotel magnate André Balazs, who owns the glamorous Chateau Marmont in Hollywood and the Mercer hotel in the Big Apple. Originally one of London’s first purpose-built fire stations, the Grade II listed gothic Victorian building has been transformed by Balazs into a swanky New york-style brasserie with high ceilings, hanging light fiings, large mirrors and a busy open kitchen. Guests are greeted by aractive top-haed doormen and escorted through a prey garden courtyard to their tables.

| 18 |

What's on the menu? The kitchen is headed up by chef Nuno Mendes, formerly of Viajante, who has created a relaxed but vibrant menu with many American flourishes. Typical dishes include chargrilled iberico pork, blackened salmon with sea kale and trout roe and crab-stuffed doughnuts. The Firehouse Caesar, a reinvention of the classic salad with chunks of crispy chicken skin, is a particular favourite, though we imagine the kitchen staff are used to witholding the dressing. Who might I spot? Lily Allen, Kate Moss, Simon Cowell, Linsday Lohan, David Beckham, Bill Clnton, Bradley Cooper, Tony Blair and Orlando Bloom have all been glimpsed sneaking out of the back door. www. chilternfirehouse.com

Sea level's CF8 augments the future of luxury yachting with curved glass structure Dutch yacht design and engineering company sea level looks to the future of long distance water travel with the ‘ CF8’ concept. enabling a family to bring their cars and possessions, the 80 meter yacht would essentially be a floating community. unlike traditional yachts, the hull and glass superstructure would be inextricably linked together through a strong outer shape and the downward lines from the upper section of the hull towards the bow would give the yacht effective aerodynamic shape. during the design process, sea level was influenced by the louwman exclusive cars glass showroom in the netherlands from which they proposed a curved structure that counter poses the outer lines. the 100 cubic meter glass garage also takes into account an hydraulic platform for disembarking cars from the yacht. with this, the owner will be able to choose the appropriate vehicle from his/her own collection for any occasion. for the feasibility of this design, sea level created a structural feature with a large centre line supporting beam through the entire ‘CF8’. the extreme width also offers great stability at sea that will offer maximum comfort to the guests and crew. onboard, the owners will experience an indoor and outdoor atmosphere that never existed in superyachts. ww.sealevel.nl
