Every Spring there’s a fantastic range of luxury events taking place around the world, and there’s something for every taste. We’ve rounded up several of the top events coming up this year
Kips Bay Decorator Show House
Manhattan - May 2 - June 1
Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This all began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world.
Lexington - May 5-6, 2017
The Kentucky Derby is unlike any other sporting event! With a crowd of more than 150,000 people, unparalleled history and tradition and its unique spectacle, “The Derby” has been described as one of the “Greatest Bucket-list Sporting Events” in America.
Cannes Film Festival
Cannes - May 17-28, 2017
The Cannes Film Festival is the highlights of the film calendar each year, with an epic number of high-profile events, screenings and swanky parties jam-packed into this small, French coastal town over the course of eleven days.
Paris - May 22 – June 11, 2017
The French Open; known locally as Roland Garros, is the second tournament of the Grand Slam tennis season. It’s the second of the four major world tennis tournaments, drawing the best players from around the world to the City of Lights for two magical weeks.
Monaco Grand Prix
Monaco - May 25, 2017
The Monaco Grand Prix is the one race of the year that every driver dreams of winning. Like the Indy 500 or LeMans, it stands alone, almost distinct from the sport from which it was born. A combination of precision driving, technical excellence and sheer bravery is required to win in Monte Carlo, facets which highlight the differences between the great and the good in Formula One.The Monaco Grand Prix epitomizes everything that’s wonderful about Formula One racing: the speed, glamour, passion, sound and a even a hint of danger.
Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta
Porto Cervo - May 30, 2017.
Organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with Boat International Media, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta hosts a maximum of thirty of the world’s largest and most beautiful sailing yachts on breathtaking courses winding through the islands of Sardinia’s La Maddalena archipelago.
