EDITOR & Co-EDITOR’ S LETTER
Dear lovers of luxury
T
he word luxury originates from the Latin term“luxus”, signifying
“soft or extravagant living, indulgence, sumptuousness or
opulence”.
Luxury’s definition is continuously evolving – and so is that of its audience’s
mindset. Better comprehending our luxury audience is a sophisticated
process. And we have turned it into a precise science.
By delivering the most beautiful, elegant and stylish content, we define
specific trigger points that capture the luxury spirit of our audience,
enhancing the immense desirability of what we communicate and
showcase within Simply Abu Dhabi.
This edition takes in a fabulous array of locations. We stay at the sublime
new Jumeirah at Etihad Towers hotel in Abu Dhabi, and dine at two of its
most sumptuous restaurants – Quest and Li Beirut. We then profile the
amazing new Avenue luxury shopping centre, contained within the same
tower complex.
Demonstrating the rapid growth of luxury within Abu Dhabi, we also
feature a fascinating profile of the distinguished Abdul Hamied Seddiqi –
the Vice-Chairman of exquisite jewellers Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. This
luxury expert gives us the lowdown on his firm’s recent acquisition of Abu
Dhabi’s Al Manara Jewellery.
We also travel to London for the premiere of the captivating new Batman
film, TheDarkKnight Rises – andwe then experience a taste of the British
capital here in the UAE, as we visit the fabulous new Ivy restaurant in
Dubai.
There is something of a British theme running through this issue, as we
look at the options available to enjoy watching Manchester City Football
Club in customised style. And we also prepare for Skyfall, the new film
featuring British icon James Bond. Among the gorgeous luxury ‘Bond
items’ we feature are the stylishAstonMartinDB5 and his simply stunning
Omega watch.
And that only touches upon the realms of sheer opulence includedwithin
these pages. If this magazine helps convey our deep love of luxury to you
in even a small way, then we will be very happy.
Yours luxuriously
