The Next Magnificent
He's new guy at Hermes, asked to lead its beauty studio - the youngest of the brand's metiers that also has the potential to be its widest-reaching.

Like in the iconic sitcom Friends, our go-to eating spots are also often our favourite social spaces - something that the pandemic has reinforced, what with the regulations on where and how we've been able to gather during the past two years.

A MOVEABLE FEAST
The pandemic has hit the F&B sector hard.

And, of course, their interiors are stunning, making them destinations to see and be seen at, and compel one to get all dressed up - even if it's for a table of one. So now, who's ready to eat?

Un camino consciente
El impacto que la industria de la moda ha dejado en los últimos años en nuestro planeta no es secreto alguno. Numerosos documentales y noticieros han detallado las prácticas que por muchos años pasaron inadvertidas.
