Cannes Yachting Festival launches Luxury Gallery for 2017
by Zoe Dickens
The Cannes Yachting Festival has announced the launch of a new Luxury Gallery which will become a permanent part of the event following the success of the luxury-focused La Terrasse last year.
The Luxury Gallery will be situated within the Palais des Festivals and feature a host of international names from the worlds of cars, watches, jewellery, gastronomy, private aviation, accessories and design, each of which will offer show goers an unrivalled opportunity to get an up-close look at their high-end products.
Highlights for watch lovers include Breitling and Zanetti Montres, who will each have their new 2017 collections on display, while fine jewels from Sanlys Joaillerie and Fred Paris will add a little sparkle to proceedings. There will also be much for art aficionados to marvel at with Galleria Giordani and Gimpel & Müller in attendance from Milan and Paris respectively to showcase their finest artists.
If you’re looking to spruce up your yacht then the Luxury Gallery will offer plenty in the way of interior design inspiration. Crystal specialist Lalique, linen expert Monalison, kitchenwear brand Cook & Toques and marble furniture designer Retegui will all be vying to upgrade your yacht this season. After something a little more nautical? Pay a visit to yacht model maker Kiade, nautical 3D chart builder Latitude Kinsale or mapmaker Itas Planisferi.
Of course, with so much to see, chances are you’re going to need to unwind over an aperitif afterwards. Luckily Champagne Charles Clavem and French wine producer Eugene Ellia will be on hand to cater to all your libation needs.
Running from September 12-17, 2017, this year the Cannes Yachting Festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary and the host of yachts heading to the festival is suitably impressive. So once you’ve checked out all the Luxury Gallery has to offer be sure to pay a visit to the real stars of the show including Andiamo, Elsea and Mystere.
