Offering the first-ever ‘Bespoke-Your-Life Tour’, the 18-night trip takes guests on a journey across Europe in the finest made-to-measure luxury including your own specially crafted: coat of arms; fragrance; buttons; shoes; lipstick; doll’s house based on your own home; and even a car mascot modelled on your dog.
Luxury products and experiences website VeryFirstTo.com brings to its readers the Hurlingham Travel Eurostar Bespoke-Your-Life Tour that takes them to London, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Rome, Amsterdam, Munich and Brussels, and enjoy Eurostar’s celebrated Business Premier facilities.
Marcel Knobil founder of VeryFirstTo, Superbrands and Cool BrandLeaders says, “There has been a growing trend in the world of luxury to purchase bespoke items – off-the shelf shopping is losing kudos. This trip provides an unprecedented opportunity to meet the world’s finest names in customization and enjoy the fruits of their exceptionally talented labor.”
Guests will begin their tour in London at the iconic London Savoy Hotel and traveling in a sumptuous chauffeur-driven luxury car. In London, their itinerary includes a visit to the Earl Marshal’s Court where they will apply for the design and creation of their own coat of arms. The Coat of Arms has been granted to people of eminence since Henry VII’s reign. Toye Kenning and Spencer will create the buttons and cufflinks to be featured on the Coat of Arms. The cufflinks will also adorn their made-to-order shirts created by the team at Davies & Son.
In Paris, guests will stay at the Four Seasons Hotel George V and work with the designers at Givenchy at their world-famous atelier to create a one-of-a-kind gown, which the ladies will adorn with their own Christian Louboutin bespoke pair of red-soled pair of shoes.
In Longchamp, guests will stay at the famed Four Seasons George V hotel and set out to create their own set of luggage. Guests will be able to choose the leather, color and accents to ensure their bags best reflect their tastes. Here, they will also have two appointments with a top perfumer to create his and her scents, at the decadent Perfumer sur Mesure.
From here they will hop on-board Eurostar’s premiere business class to Munich (at The Charles Hotel) for a fine custom-designed stained glass window to take back to their home. Guests will also visit Stockinger, the German manufacturer of luxury watch winders and bespoke safes to discuss the design of their own watch winder to not only house the treasured Vacheron-Constantin timepieces that they will have tailor-made when in Geneva (at the Mandarin Oriental Geneva), but to ensure they maintain perfect time.
In Rome, guests will stay at the Hotel de Russie, where the gentlemen will visit renowned shoemaker Marini Calzature, known to be a favorite among royalty including King Hassan II of Morocco, Queen Elizabeth of England and Sheikh Al Nahayan of UAE. To ensure his sartorial style compliments her couture, the men will make a trip to Italian suit makers and past tailor to James Bond, Brioni, in Italy’s fashion destination, Milan (at Four Seasons Hotel Milano).
In Amsterdam, guests will have the opportunity to sit back and soak in some 19th century charm at the Hotel De L’Europe before heading out to meet Meester Knecht to design and create their bespoke bicycles at the workshop. The bespoke journey finishes on a sweet note with a visit to the famous Zaabär Chocolate Workshop where they will create their own confections.
Other custom-made items that guests will take home on this trip include a bespoke doll’s house from Anglia Doll’s Houses replicating their own home, a car mascot and a custom-made trio kit of makeup.
