If there was ever a time to wish you were on the other side of the velvet rope, this should be it.
Ask to enter the super exclusive Luxury Lifestyle Weekend (LLW), a three-day extravaganza featuring everything luxe: Audis, Alexander McQueen and lots and lots of A-listers. Culture vultures, global fashion brands, and top chefs will come together in a space designed by award-winning architect Rooshad Shroff for LLW.
Here are bpb’s favourite highlights from the gala that will set up casa at Jio Garden this weekend from March 10-11. (For a full report, see their event page here).
Invite-only Parisian style soirees and lunches at The Table; sun-downers (open to all); dance sessions with The Revue; and swing bands take over the entertainment agenda from opening night to curtains down at LLW.
Food & Drink
Our favourite culinary charity, Food With Benefits, will curate the LLW Café, which means that not only will it be well edited, but also that proceeds from sales will go to a good cause. Participating chefs, including POH, Xico, La Folie, Sage & Saffron, Sucres Des Terres, Burger Shop by Woodside Inn, Rahul Gomes (Jamun), Vanika Chaurdhary (Sequel) will each create four dishes for the pop-up café. And remember. At the end of it all, to take home a souvenir from Geneva’s Du Rhone Chocolatier, launching for the first time in India.
Home: Look out for Jaipur Rugs; luxe light design studio Klove; and Fendi Casa by Seetu Kohli concepts.
Watches & Jewellery: Christie’s will be showcasing vintage Rolex timepieces and Patek Philippe to LLW. Yum! Also, sparkle comes courtesy our favourite Jaipur Jewels.
Ensembles: Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna; bespoke boot maker John Lobb; Le Mill’s gorgeously edited collection of international labels including delicious Celine stash; Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla; and other luxe labels await your lunch money here.
Beauty: Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown plan to make you blush. You can also sign up for master classes, for your own brush with expertise.
Meanwhile, Audi Mumbai South will be unveiling the Audi R8 V10 Plus; and Lexus will display Lexus LS 500h and Lexus NX at LLW, both for the first time in the country.
