The first edition of The Australian Financial Review’s quarterly luxury title Sophisticated Traveller for 2019 has been revealed, and features a series of insider guides from some of the world’s leading experts.
Aussie designer and Paris fashion guru Martin Grant stars on the cover, the brains behind some of Meghan Markle’s best outfits on her tour of Australia.
He joins a host of industry leaders to give readers the inside scoop on travel hot spots around the world.
Sophisticated Traveller editor Fiona Carruthers speaks with cosmetics entrepeneur turned hotelier Bobbi Brown on the best ways to explore New York, and Asia Pacific CEO of Accor Hotels, Michael Issenberg, reveals his secrets to Singapore.
Africa expert Nicky Fitzgerald shares the perfect safari experience; Thea Severino, a photo editor with one of South America’s largest newspapers, talks of her lifelong love affair with Montevideo in Uruguay; British polar explore Henry Cookson offers his guide to Antarctica; and representing Australia is Italian-Australian chef Dominique Rizzo, who shares his best tips on Brisbane.
Carruthers said of the issue: “There are some spectacular results, including entrepeneur Bobbi Brown’s guide to her New York, Martin Grant’s Paris, where he has lived for nearly three decades, and Henry Cookson’s guide to Antarctica.
“You can’t afford to miss all the hot tips – or cold as the case may be”.
The autumn edition of Sophisticated Traveller also explores a luxury meditation retreat in Vietnam, a sailing tour around the islands of Myanmar, and a gourmand’s trip around the best of regional Spain.
