Welcome to The Refinement Issue.

In this issue we focus on clarity and the well- considered both in terms of design and through a honed approach to life. Small tweaks to our daily habits compound and can have a surprisingly large effect on optimising and refining our lives.

For our cover we are very proud to have partnered with Jimmy Choo, a brand that is known for its precision detailing and next level leather in Cool Clarity.

We also have exclusive interviews with Dr Maha Ema, Director of Transcendental Meditation, UAE discuss Transcendental Meditation and its ability to elevate mind, body and spirit in Another Level, Founder and CEO of The Sleep Chapter, Mansi Khandelwal, discuss restorative sleep to achieve optimal output in Refine Your Rest and Bulgari unveils “Serpenti Factory” and “75 Years of Infinite Tales” exhibition in True Brilliance.


In terms of style, we champion Schiaparelli’s signature detailing in Refined Codes, Mach & Mach delivers refined sparkle for FW23 in Adorn on page xx and we recount how Messika lit up Paris Fashion Week in Refined Rebel.

This year also saw the return of the Emirates Woman – Woman of the Year Awards. We re-live an incredible evening that shone a light on those cementing outstanding achievements in their industries in Emirates Woman, Woman of the Year Awards 2023.

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners, you are all incredible women.
