THE DUCHESS, Amsterdam

Food Inspired by the elegant Belle Époque and the refined flavours of the Nouveau-Niçoise cuisine, THE DUCHESS opened in June 2015 in Amsterdam’s historical KAS Bank building and was awarded a Michelin star as of 2018. Exquisite products are the star du spectacle in a fresh and elegant cuisine and cocktail menu. From breakfast until dinner. Co-founders of THE DUCHESS Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP along with CEO Stephanie Pearson and Executive Chef Hari Shetty continually aim to set the new standard for modern hospitality.     “The race for quality has no finish line and THE DUCHESS is always aiming to raise the bar.” –Yossi Eliyahoo, founder of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP         THE DUCHESS cuisine:   THE DUCHESS dinner menu is inspired by the light and refined flavours from Southern France and Italy, also known as Nouveau-Niçoise Cuisine. Exquisite produce become praised dishes such as Dover Sole Meuniere, Beef Wellington and THE DUCHESS Seafood Pasta. All dishes are carefully prepared in the state of the art and custom-made Molteni kitchen. The kitchen is a sight by itself and boasts the highly exclusive chef’s table right in the middle of the kitchen, THE DUCHESS Table. In 2017 THE DUCHESS received her crown jewel, a star in the Michelin Guide 2018.     THE DUCHESS menu:   In addition to the elegant dinnertime, THE DUCHESS welcomes her guest during the day with the same graceful poise. Breakfast at THE DUCHESS includes morning classics such as Pain au Chocolat and poached eggs, which are prepared with the most beautiful of ingredients. As one could expect of nobility, the Afternoon Tea earned a prominent role at THE DUCHESS; a charming Alice in Wonderland experience dressed in an abundance of sweets. The extravagant display of cake tiers in the Tea Room offers a spread of niche pastries. They are joined by savoury delicacies and scones served with signature marmalades and homemade macaroons. Accompanied by one of the many exclusive tea-blends, or true to the royal nature of THE DUCHESS, with a glass of champagne.     THE DUCHESS beverages:   All beverages at THE DUCHESS are seamlessly integrated into the dining experience, starting with a savvy selection of punches and some highly creative adaptations of ‘French and Savoy Apéritif’. The cocktail offer includes a unique selection of refined and often-overlooked beverages from the heyday of the last cocktail era, the 1920s and 1930s, and a tailor-made wine list, complementing THE DUCHESS cuisine with the most exclusive wines and champagnes from around the globe. The bar was awarded Best Luxury Restaurant Bar of Europe' at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2017, ‘Best Hotel Bar’ in Esquire’s Best Cocktail Bar Contest 2015 and 'Best Cocktail Bar' in the Entree Awards 2015.     THE DUCHESS interior:   THE DUCHESS imperial setting is designed by BARANOWITZ + KRONENBERG. The overwhelming central hall features stained-glass ceiling. Black marble details, beautiful hand- crafted floor-tiles and the intricate wooden doorframes balance the sophistication of a distant royal past with the comfort and intrigue of our time. At THE DUCHESS the past and present do more than co-exist; they enrich one another.   "The restaurant is known for their shared dining experience, and the experience in my eyes is incredible. Their signature dishes truly stand out with a a great wine parring, a great suggestion for a date, a dinner with friends or a business lunch or dinner. Located in the very centre of Amsterdam. We highly reccomend it." - Timotej Letonja   THE DUCHESS | Spuistraat 172 | 1012 VT Amsterdam | the-duchess.com  info@the-duchess.com | +31 (0) 20 8113322       AWARDS LUX Magazine 2018: Restaurant Group of the Year: THE ENTOURAGE GROUP LUX Magazine 2018: Best Gourmet European Restaurant: THE DUCHESS Entree Hospitality & Style Award 2017: Hospitality entrepreneur of the year 2017: Liran Wizman, The Entourage Group Entree Hospitality & Style Award 2015: Hospitality entrepreneur of the year 2015: Yossi Eliyahoo, The Entourage Group World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2017: Best Luxury Restaurant Bar of Europe: THE DUCHESS Entree Hospitality and Style Award 2015: Best Cocktail bar: THE DUCHESS Esquire’s best cocktail bar contest 2015: Best Hotelbar: THE DUCHESS     SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook: THEDUCHESSAmsterdam Instagram: @THEDUCHESS_official Hashtags: #THEDUCHESSAmsterdam #THEENTOURAGEGROUP Inspired by the elegant Belle Époque and the refined flavours of the Nouveau-Niçoise cuisine, THE DUCHESS opened in June 2015 in Amsterdam’s historical KAS Bank building and was awarded a Michelin star as of 2018.

Soho Roc House Mykonos

Soho Roc House Mykonos

Travel Soho Roc House on the Greek island of Mykonos has 45 bedrooms, a poolside veranda, a bar, a restaurant and lounge areas, and is a short walk away from Scorpios on Paraga beach.   Last summer, Scorpios and the adjacent hotel joined the Soho House & Co family. The hotel at San Giorgio has been redesigned by the Soho House team to create a new club with bedrooms that will be open to Soho House members.     The design of Soho Roc House takes inspiration from Scorpios and laid-back beach life in Mykonos, with polished plaster floors and warm-tone plaster wall finishes, a built-in plaster reception desk in a neutral shade, and timber fittings and shelving. Furniture is built in or made of natural materials, with linen fabrics, natural jute rugs, bespoke ceramic lamps and woven wall tapestries. There are also plants and greenery throughout, giving an outdoor feel.     Bedrooms range from Tiny to Extra Large, with gardens and views of the Aegean Sea. Each one features handpicked furniture, locally made textiles and muted colour palettes to create a feeling of serenity, with all of the same touches as the Houses around the world, including mini bars and Roberts radios in every bedroom. All the bathrooms have Cowshed products and rainforest showers.     The indoor reception space flows through to an outdoor courtyard, where the existing stone chapel has been retained, with lounge seating, rattan dining chairs and wooden tables situated alongside olive trees inside the original stone walls.     A rustic open-plan restaurant serves organic, home-style Mediterranean food, with a light sand- coloured floor, plaster open kitchen, timber shelving, dry-stone walls and lounge furniture to relax on. There are also layered grasses and reeds planted around the dining space.     At the main gathering place, the Pool Bar, the landscape has been designed organically, with plants interspersed naturally within the stone paving, long grasses and a seamless plaster floor that goes from the surrounding area right through the pool. There are sunbeds, loungers with natural tone fabrics, and a bar serving cocktails and smoothies throughout the day.     The lounge area has Moroccan-style floor cushions, low seating, cushions and textiles in natural fabrics, and hanging lanterns, with views out over the Aegean Sea. There’s an outdoor gym, a massage hut and a monthly series of classes, mind and body workshops, therapies and rituals.     Soho Roc House has opened with all the appropriate health and safety measures in line with government regulations, to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and the team. There are social-distancing measures in place, with reduced capacities, increased spacing and signage in the eating and drinking areas, as well as constant cleaning and disinfecting throughout the House. Please get in touch for more information.     A short walk away is Scorpios, set on its own sheltered cove on the southern tip of Mykonos. Perfectly placed for sunset, Scorpios is much more than a beach bar and destination restaurant. It is an inclusive gathering place for a like-minded community of musicians, artists, performers, and bodywork practitioners with a creative programme that transcends genres, borders, and stereotypes. A     Scorpios and Soho Roc House share the same relaxed, home from home feel as all of the Houses around the world; built around a love of food, design, art and music. Scorpios has already had five successful seasons on the island, with consistent sell out summers.     The acquisition of Scorpios marks the first step in Soho House’s plans to build on the existing global network of Houses and its membership community, by creating a new pillar of the business centred around “experiences outside of the Houses”. Soho House and Scorpios are looking at other beach- front sites around the world to bring similar immersive, barefoot spaces that offer a way of living focused on community, connection and creativity to Soho House members and like-minded friends.   Soho Roc House on the Greek island of Mykonos has 45 bedrooms, a poolside veranda, a bar, a restaurant and lounge areas, and is a short walk away from Scorpios on Paraga beach.   Last summer, Scorpios and the adjacent hotel joined the Soho House & Co family.

Izakaya Asian Kitchen & Bar, Amsterdam

Izakaya Asian Kitchen & Bar, Amsterdam

Food Since 2012, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar has painted Amsterdam with the vibrant colours of an Asian charm, changing the Dutch hospitality industry day after day. IZAKAYA has grown from the next big thing to a notable name in Amsterdam's culinary scene and an institute for the Japanese gastronomy, with a cuisine that is authentic yet never traditional. IZAKAYA offers pure relaxation and indulgence in an urban chic environment. International serial entrepreneur Yossi Eliyahoo of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP and the group's CEO Stephanie Pearson and Executive Chef Hari Shetty are the creative brains behind the inventive kitchen and bar in the 'De Pijp' area.     IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar aims to be an institute of the Asian cuisine, as well as a place of gastronomic innovation, and it has proven to be so in the past years. In the past years, IZAKAYA stayed true to their ambition to constantly change the culinary landscape of Amsterdam by innovation.     “A contemporary dining experience is revamped when IZAKAYA's extravagant Japanese cuisine meets South-American flavours. Authentic elements enter the modern days when combined with creative technics. Not only in the menu but throughout the whole concept. It's the essence of IZAKAYA; authentic yet never traditional. From the dishes itself, to the tables they’re served on.”– Yossi Eliyahoo, oprichter van THE ENTOURAGE GROUP     The cuisine and drinks: The traditional ‘Izakaya’ is best translated as 'Japanese pub', a cornerstone of the Japanese food culture. IZAKAYA gives this authentic principle a high-end and gastronomic twist. Time-honoured techniques blend together with innovative signatures, with spectacular dishes as the end result. Dishes are served on small plates that are made for sharing and guests can order as much as they would like. The menu features fresh sushi, sashimi and a variety of exquisite meat and fish, prepared on a traditional Robata grill or in a Hibachi fire bowl, a Japanese hot plate. The IZAKAYA chefs find inspiration in distinctive elements of the Japanese culture, as seen in the limited-edition Sakura menu, which honoured the delicate pink cherry blossom. With unusual dishes, IZAKAYA is daring her guests to try at least one thing they never had before. Time after time. Along with redefining Asian culinary classics, IZAKAYA gives a cutting-edge twist to the bar with an array of house-infused tonics with the Japanese Shōchū as the base. The Shōchū is distilled from barley, buckwheat and sweet potato. Together with ingredients like lychee, juzu, jasmine tea and Sake the result is a surprising cocktail menu full of Asian flavours.     Innovation and design: IZAKAYA is more than just another high-class restaurant; the concept acts as an institute of Asian gastronomy with its history of inviting guests for exclusive master classes dedicated to uncovering the secrets of the refined Japanese cuisine. In a few years, the high-end hotspot has flourished to become a true beacon of contemporary knowledge and quality visited by national and international celebrities like Rihanna, Drake and Doutzen Kroes. Designed by the internationally acclaimed architects, interior- and product designers BARANOWITZ + KRONENBERG, The innovative nature of IZAKAYA is captured in the Japanese aesthetic 'Wabi-Sabi'. 'Wabi- Sabi' is an imperfect idea of beauty summarised in one simple sentence: "Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect". Every single element is a harmony of lines, colours, and shapes that avoids the usual perfection; the 360° bar is entirely made of re-used pieces of zinc, and the floor of sandblasted Indian black slate gives IZAKAYA a natural look and feel. The design is created on the five Japanese elements: fire, earth, air, water and heaven. The stylish and lively atmosphere of IZAKAYA fits the needs of a cosmopolitan city, for that reason IZAKAYA was rewarded with Entree Magazine's 'Most Beautiful Bar Award' in 2014.     Since 2012, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar has painted Amsterdam with the vibrant colours of an Asian charm, changing the Dutch hospitality industry day after day.

Maximilian Missoni on his life as Head of Design at Polestar

Design This weekend Polestar, the electric performance car brand from Sweden, opens its first three Polestar Spaces in the Netherlands. In these retail environments in Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Leidschendam, the Dutch public can meet Polestar 2 for the first time. The fourth Space will open later this year near Amsterdam. Polestar is moving forward towards a more sustainable future and believes electric vehicles are a crucial step on this journey.   These ‘physical’ Spaces are designed to match the minimalist and innovative design philosophy of the brand. Customers can discover the Polestar 1 and Polestar 2 in many different ways; through interactive displays with touchscreens or with Varjo virtual reality that matches the resolution of the human eye. For questions they can always contact Polestar Specialists that, interestingly, do not work on commission basis.    The Polestar 2, which will debut in the Netherlands this weekend, is a fully electric performance fastback. It is also the first car in the world with an integrated Android infotainment system, which means access to Google services such as Google Maps and voice recognition. As Polestar is working towards a sustainable future, the brand created it’s interior out of recycled and vegan materials.      Maximilian Missoni is the Head of Design at Polestar. Maximilian Missoni studied Vehicle Design at the Royal College of Art in London then started his career at the Volkswagen Group. In 2018 he became Head of Design for Polestar.     Being Head of Design of a progressive super design brand we are extremely curious: What does a day in the life of Maximilian Missoni look like?   It’s probably more down to earth than you’d imagine. We work on many future car models simultaneously and the development process of such complex technological products – especially when aiming at a mass production volume can be very tedious at times. I spend probably two thirds of my days in dark rooms with life size projections or virtual reality rigs where we assess proposals and designs, implementing improvements. I also spend a lot of time in intense discussions with engineering about how to get to the desired results. The remaining third would split into team development, management meetings and strategic tasks. It feels like there is never enough time to just roam and find inspiration.   How do you keep inspired when handling a brand like Polestar?   The biggest task when setting up the design language for a new brand as a team is to distill philosophy and values into three dimensional objects and ultimately products that people want to live with. I see it as my main task to identify great ideas that emerge within the design team and develop them into a stage where we can present them and convince the rest of the management team to support this vision. I have handpicked the guys and girls in my team and have done so because I believe in their individual talent and unique styles. So, they are actually the ones who often inspire me. Coming into work every morning, knowing there is a bunch of highly skilled and creative people who are all keen to shape the future is probably my biggest privilege. On top of that I immerse myself whenever I can into contemporary art and design. And I try to keep learning – lately everything about electric propulsion and the challenges and opportunities of sustainability or even circularity – our next frontier.   What's your home like? Do you practice what you preach?   I try to surround myself with furniture design classics and art that inspires me. Would I like to expand this collection? Absolutely. The one object which probably reflects my design ethos the most - besides the cars of our own brands which I drive - is my boat, designed by a Swedish boat designer and friend of mine, who I studied with back in the days. Its clever, Scandinavian, minimalistic solutions make me happy time and time again.   3,5 We just have to ask… are you perhaps related to the (fashion) Missoni dynasty?   The name Missoni is generally not very common, and the origins of the wider family tree are in northern Italy, but I wouldn’t go further than that.      This weekend Polestar, the electric performance car brand from Sweden, opens its first three Polestar Spaces in the Netherlands.

INTRODUCING THE SECOND CHAPTER OF #ACCIDENTALINFLUENCER – THE DIGITAL PROJECT DEDICATED TO THE GUCCI TENNIS 1977

Fashion Gucci announces the second chapter of its digital project #AccidentalInfluencer, the intriguing and playful take on the idea of imitation and replication, seen through the lenses of London based artist, photographer and director Max Siedentopf – which debuted last February.     The focus is once again on the range of Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers, this time enriched by the recently introduced styles from the Gucci Off The Grid collection, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele with motifs of the House and constructed with recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials – including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.     For this new chapter, Siedentopf leads us through the every-day life of these eclectic characters accidentally matching furniture pieces and objects in their homes. The result is an array of hypnotical and haunting scenes, where individuals seem to suggest improbable visual coincidences between their looks and settings.     The campaign will be launched on Gucci’s social media platforms, and will also include bespoke videos for TikTok, dedicated clips for Instagram Stories, and a section on the Gucci App that allows customers to virtually “try on” the Gucci Tennis 1977, using the pioneering augmented reality technology the House has introduced in June 2019.     #accidentalinfluencer Gucci announces the second chapter of its digital project #AccidentalInfluencer, the intriguing and playful take on the idea of imitation and replication, seen through the lenses of London based artist, photographer and director Max Siedentopf – which debuted last February.     The focus is once again on the range of Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers, this time enriched by the recently introduced styles from the Gucci Off The Grid collection, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele with motifs of the House and constructed with recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials – including ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste.     For this new chapter, Siedentopf leads us through the every-day life of these eclectic characters accidentally matching furniture pieces and objects in their homes.

Beauty of the Chanel Haute Couture Collection for Fall & Winter

Beauty “Romantic punk with a sophisticated twist. A playfulness paired with a chic sense of assurance. We maintained a punk attitude to the makeup going from a bold eyeliner to deep dark sophisticated lips, through a defined yet subtle use of pink. Very strong and deep, defined browny red lips, a very thin elongated eyeliner going across the top of the eye, a very transparent and luminous skin with accents of balmy highlight on the top of the lid and high on the cheekbones give yet another twist to the same inspiration.” Lucia Pica “Romantic punk with a sophisticated twist.
