ACT OF TRAVEL LAUNCHES SOLO RETREATS: TRAVEL WITH A VIRTUAL COACH

Travel “leave with intent, return with clarity”     Boutique travel company ACT OF TRAVEL, specialized in creating and designing bespoke travel experiences, launches Solo Retreats today: a local travel concept focused on self-development.     During the journey individual travellers will be staying in one of the 10 specially curated hotel properties in the Netherlands. A key element to the Solo Retreat will be your Coach. They will help you to set realistic intentions before you leave and will be in touch virtually during your trip to keep you focused. Upon return you will evaluate your experience together with the Coach for closure. Travelers will be returning back home with clarity on what the next steps are in life, career or whatever the intentions are.     “2020 was a year of change and had a major impact on many of our lives, causing us to rethink beliefs, societal norms and habits”, according to Raoul Fokké, Chief Travel Designer at the Amsterdam based boutique travel company. “There is so much power in change, you just have to make sure that the moment is leveraged well. That is why we designed the Solo Retreats experience, to help you make decisions in these crucial times we are in, both in your personal or professional life.     Hidden Gems:   Solo Retreats is a sustainable travel experience. Travelers stay close to home and support local hotels, including the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam, Parc Broekhuizen in Leersum and hidden gems such as Maison Haas Hustinx in Maastricht. The trips will have a low environmental impact as it's close to home and will endure for two nights only, making it non-disruptive to your time.     The involved coaches are highly regarded and have different specializations. Serial entrepreneur Sebastiaan Hooft, for example, assists entrepreneurs during their Solo Retreat. Hooft is one of the most influential tech entrepreneurs in the Netherlands and was in the Top 100 Young Self-made Millionaires of business magazine Quote.     THE SOLO RETREATS INCLUSIONS:   Stay in an AOT curated hotel of your choice, with breakfast included. 4x one-hour sessions with your personal coach. One hour before, two hours during and one hour after your Solo Retreat. Pre-travel pack incl. Marie Stella Maris roomspray, your Journal and Self PracticeTM cards. Local digital guides to explore like a local. “leave with intent, return with clarity”     Boutique travel company ACT OF TRAVEL, specialized in creating and designing bespoke travel experiences, launches Solo Retreats today: a local travel concept focused on self-development.     During the journey individual travellers will be staying in one of the 10 specially curated hotel properties in the Netherlands.

In conversation with Schilo van Coevorden

In conversation with Schilo van Coevorden

Food Just around the corner from the hotel in Amsterdam, is where Schilo van Coevorden has his roots. Asia, however, has his heart. As a chef, with classical French education, Schilo was very early on triggered by the exotic flavours and textures of the Far East. Using Taiko and Tunes Bar as the canvas on which he can exhibit his creativity, Schilo and his team of professionals from, among others, China and Japan, monitors authenticity putting creativity first, always. Products must be fresh, flavours can be explosive. With the intense passion of a pure artist, he determines the pace in which his team ensures a unique experience for their guests night after night. This, without a doubt, makes Taiko the restaurant for modern Asian cuisine in Amsterdam.     We had a great time speaking with Schilo about their new opening in Dubai as well as the current situation and inspirations behind their incredible dishes.     You are now opening a new Taiko in Dubai. Can you tell our readers more about the new opening?   During my time spent in Dubai previously, a Bedouin told me an old saying, “If you eat the head of the helwayoo (the best local fish), you will always return back to Dubai.” After more than twenty years, I’m excited to be returning to a city that has played such an important part in my career.”     When creating a menu, you focus on one main ingredient. What is the ingredient of this year and what makes you choose the ingredient of the year?   In this time where local is more important than ever, we found an excellent sustainable fish via Kingfish Zeeland. Dutch Yellowtail, as it was named by Kingfish Zeeland, is a delicious high-grade fish, well known by Japanese Sushi Masterchefs across Europe. It is respected for its hearty texture, luscious flavour and the outstanding farming practices that bring it to life. A fish like no other, raised from egg to plate, in the Netherlands, without the use of any antibiotics.     How are you dealing with and adapting to the current world situation? You are also doing a delivery service, can you tell us more about the menu and process of ordering?   Since October we’re doing a delivery service as well. We collaborated with the delivery partner ‘Thuis uit Eten’. This platform creates unforgettable moments right at your dinner table by delivering the best dishes in style. People can order via www.thuisuiteten.nl/taiko before 6 p.m. to enjoy their Taiko dinner the next day. Next to a four course menu, Taiko nigiri and sushi boxes we also serve Taiko Bar cocktails which you only have to shake and pour over ice.      What inspired you to become a chef? Did you always envision becoming a chef, already as a kid?   Growing up in a family that bonded over their shared love for food, Schilo van Coevorden’s career as a chef was a natural step, one that his father had, too, once dreamed of taking. “I’m doing the job my father wanted to do; in the end, he went on to be something else, but food was always very important in my family. He always wanted to be a chef but never made it himself, doing other things instead, so my parents really pushed me to succeed. They took me to all the best restaurants around the world and to the famous restaurants in France, and at an early age I went to cooking school and was groomed to be a chef.” Taking his high school teachers’ advice to pursue a career in which handwork was integral, cooking was an easy path for Schilo to follow, especially when he had spent his childhood in awe of Paul Bocuse, watching the master chef elevate homestyle recipes into haute cuisine on television. “Paul Bocuse inspired me on tv in the early eighties where he showed me my mother’s recipes in a new dimension.      Where does the name of the restaurant TAIKO come from?   In the early days while walking along the Paulus Potterstraat when the windows were open, people could hear the students practicing their drum solo's. The room where the drum lessons of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the music school after which the hotel is named, where being held, is exactly where Taiko restaurant is now located. A remarkable detail is that this fact only came to light after the name Taiko was born - which is the Japanese collective name for several percussion instruments. Just like in the past, the sounds of the drum bounce of the walls, thanks to the percussionist who plays the Taiko drum during dinner every Friday and Saturday night.     Your menu always offers a variety of incredible dishes. Which would you say are your signature dishes and also signature drinks of the restaurant?   The signature dish had always been the Daikon Salad which I created more than 20 years ago. It’s the ultimate ladies dish that looks like a complicated yet simple dish full of flavours.  With the opening of Taiko, we were right at the beginning of the Gin & Tonic hype, which afterwards conquered not only Amsterdam but the whole of the Netherlands. Now we are looking to make Japanese highballs into the new Gin & Tonic.      How do you adapt as a chef to the trend of more plant based cooking as well as being conscious about the environment?   I always cared a lot about vegetables. Four years ago I developed an all-vegan gastronomic menu, and based on the reviews, we are one of the few fine-dining establishments both locally and globally to achieve success with entirely plant-based creations. To see that guests are coming back especially for this menu makes me very happy.       Can you share with us more about the design of the restaurant and Taiko bar in Amsterdam? It is truly beautifully designed.    Top to toe, our interior has been designed by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni. Ensuring a balance between old and new, Lissoni kept the original wood floors and included black metal frames throughout the restaurant. Taiko is designed as a New York style modern Dutch restaurant.      Just around the corner from the hotel in Amsterdam, is where Schilo van Coevorden has his roots. Asia, however, has his heart.

Louis Vuitton Unveils Bespoke Perfume Service

Beauty Louis Vuitton perpetuates the Art of Personalization and launches its bespoke Haute Perfumery service with Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. A unique creation, conceived and made in Grasse.     It all started in Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, the cradle of perfumery and leatherworking trades. Since 2012, this is where the Master Perfumer has conceived his most beautiful olfactive propositions for the House. Now, he is opening his workshop to bespoke perfumery, for unique and personalized creations made upon request, in the tradition of the special orders that have been rooted deeply in the Louis Vuitton DNA since 1854.     “I wanted to offer our clients the possibility of wearing a unique fragrance, made in my creative workshop,” explains Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. “To me, this bespoke Haute Perfumery service represents the essence of the House, because ultra personalization has always been at the heart of Louis Vuitton.”     The objective of this unique and privileged moment is to create the client’s olfactory portrait. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud inquires as to tastes, memories, and lifestyle as well as typical perfume habits. In the process, a genuine, intimate collaboration takes shape between client and Master Perfumer. After this exceptional and emotionally rich consultation, the Master Perfumer begins composing a scent and develops several formulas in his atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse. To do so, he selects from among the most exclusive raw materials he has sourced in the four corners of the globe, in order to create the fragrance trail that best corresponds to its client’s personality. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud can then calibrate each olfactory nuance down to the tiniest details to offer a resolutely made-to- measure composition.     An exceptional showcase:   It takes several months to finalize a fragrance formula. The perfume is then composed by hand at the Atelier d’Art, a new space dedicated to bespoke perfumes in the heart of Les Fontaines Parfumées. In the meantime, the trunk in which the perfume will be presented is specially crafted in Asnières, Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop and the cradle for all of its special orders. This unique and personalizable trunk holds four 100ml bottles, three 200ml bottles, a 100ml travel case, a travel spray, plus 16 refills.   A sustainable service:   As with all of the House’s perfumes, made-to-measure Haute Perfumery benefits from a refill service upon request, which is available in all Louis Vuitton stores carrying perfume fountains. Each unique formula will be forever inscribed in the Louis Vuitton archives at Les Fontaines Parfumées so that the client’s olfactory signature may be perpetuated.     Special orders: Historic savoir-faire:   Since its founding, the House has accompanied clients in their quest for rare and exceptional products and perpetuated the Art of Personalization, a tradition inscribed in the trunk-maker’s DNA since 1854. In 1859, the House opened its workshop in Asnières, just outside Paris. To this day, trunks and special orders are crafted there by highly qualified artisans for travellers the world over. The emblematic Desk-Trunk for the renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Tea Service Trunk for the Maharaja of Baroda were made here. More recently, the House’s historic workshop crafted cases for transporting the world’s most prestigious sports trophies, including those for the FIFA, the French Open, and the NBA, as well as Sneaker and Vanity Trunks — contemporary versions of the cosmetic cases of the 1920s.     The special order service will be available starting in November 2020.

Zenology presents their new capsule collection

Lifestyle “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions. Immersing myself in creating the bold and new certainly excites me, but it is the comfort of iconic classics that inspired me to develop new fragrance-driven products from our treasured favorite fragrance.     The Camellia Sinensis fragrance is our iconic scent that sparked the hotel industry and many others to delve into the power of scent. So for me, it was the logical and the perfect way to start this journey. The calming and soothing notes of this fragrance soon became instantly recognizable and synonymous with ZENOLOGY. The woodiness of Black Tea, the herbaceous notes of Clary Sage, and the depth coming from the mysterious Guaiac Wood create a scent that fits all seasons and adapts to every setting.    However, during the colder months when the days are darker it adds the much-needed warmth and comfort. That's why I would like to present to you our black limited edition in our iconic Camellia Sinensis fragrance – as a diffuser, scented candle and hand & body cosmetics in 300 ml size including various gift sets in gift boxes designed to re-use.” - Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, Founder and Creative Director       ZENOLOGY presents a new limited black edition packaging in its treasured favorite Camellia Sinensis fragrance. Black tea, made from leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, will fill any space with its comforting and purifying woody steam.   smells like: Herbal tea   elements: Black Tea, Clary Sage, Guaiac Wood perfumer: Fredrik Dalman, In-House Perfumer ZENOLOGY       The collection features cosmetics duo’s in a new 300 ml (10.14 fl.oz.) format and comes in a matt-black square gift box.  ZENOLOGY is also launching new fragrance diffusers (sticks) and a scented candle as a part of the limited black edition that comes in a matt-black cylindrial gift box. “I am continuously inspired by fragrance - the way it triggers memories, transports to a different setting, and creates emotions.

Introducing VEERT

Introducing VEERT

Lifestyle Julia Lang, Tanzanian-German branding and marketing specialist and serial entrepreneur, is launching curated collections of jewelry, home fragrance products, homegoods, and more under her new label -- VEERT. In an unprecedented period of gender upheaval, VEERT breaks with the traditional expectations of men’s and women’s categories to create products outside of traditional gendered categories and aesthetics. By removing the concept of gender, Lang creates a space in between and brings a fresh new edge with her curated collections. VEERT (@itsveert) will be launching on November 9th at itsveert.com.     "In a time when we’re being separated and isolated from each other, hope and inclusivity is needed now more than ever. We don't just want to give birth to another product.  We want to be the catalyst of empowerment, healing energy, and unity. Traditional gender separation won't exist within our products and collections. We truly believe that VEERT is meant to bring us all together. All ages, ethnicities, geographic areas, and gender identities all tied together by an undeniable longing for tastefulness and positive self-expression.”-- Julia Lang, Founder of VEERT.     Unisex jewelry collection of gold vermeil pieces inspired from a deep desire to combine elevated aesthetics with global influences, centered around healing, hope, and positive energy. Lang infused the 18 karat gold plated pieces with powerful healing stones, such as green onyx and malachite. Green onyx is associated with the heart chakra, as well as malachite that clears and activates the chakras. Both stones are an important protection stone. Malachite absorbs negative energies, picking them up from the atmosphere and from the body. The green onyx is the symbol of restfulness and purity. It helps you to move forward from all kind of sorrow, grief and depression. It improves your self-confidence. This green soothing stone has the power to relief worries, tension, stress and fears. Green Onyx is related with love, affection, and friendship. The first VEERT jewelry collection will include a VEERT malachite + green onyx signature ring, green onyx heart pearl earrings, green onyx pearl necklace and a green onyx pendant, which have already been coveted by singer Miguel, rapper NAS and others. The collection is priced from $129 - $395. Selected pieces can also be made in solid 24k gold with pricing upon request.     With the first collection of jewelry, VEERT will also be launching its first signature scent (a blend of Ambre, Bamboo, Tuberose, Pink Sugar), “SERENGETI”, with a Liquid Soap and Candle. SERENGETI Liquid Soap and Candle were carefully created with sustainability and an elevated, immersive experience in mind. The VEERT Candle is made with innovative clean-burning, food-grade-certified coconut oil, one of the first products to market with this sustainable wax alternative that’s designed to burn true, releasing natural perfume without distortion, without ever collecting soot. The brand’s Liquid Hand Soap was developed for a rejuvenating, yet novel feel, using the cleanest ingredients possible to not only leave hands feeling clean and soft, but pure and protected.     The VEERT home fragrance collection features a Baldessari inspired three-dot design on the packaging to signify sustainability. VEERT has officially partnered with 1% For the Planet, committing 1% of yearly gross sales to the certified charity that helps our world. The brand is committed to working only with FSC certified vendors and using 85% post-consumer waste boxes and 100% recyclable paper for its packaging.     Featured in outlets like Vogue, Hypebeast’s “Business of Hype” podcast, i-D and many more, Lang has a history of working with legendary figures in fashion, entertainment, music, art, and sports, smartly molding brand identities, opening doors, curating images, and helping clients monetize their marketing investments. Adding brand founder to her ever-growing job description, Julia Lang is launching the VEERT brand as a platform to tell her own stories, express her creative vision, and bring a distinctive, multisensory lifestyle to life with premium products across various categories. VEERT, a play on the French word “vert” (a translation of the color “green”), reflects Lang’s personal connection with the color and what it’s inspired for her. Green has longtime been the color that makes her feel the strongest, the most beautiful, the most vibrant -- an experience she wants to share with everyone who touches her brand.
