A DAY OF
It’s an exciting travel day as I arrive early into Le Castellet airport and take the New Bentley Continental GT the new Bentley Continental GT right from the tarmac to Monaco, where I have a wonderful evening in store with someone special.
Today I flew in a stunning Cessna CitationJet CJ2+ managed by Luxaviation, a company with a wide range of services from charters to aircraft management and transactions.
As I step off the aircraft, I get a first glimpse of the 2018 Continental GT a new Bentley model that’s sharper and sleeker than ever before. With a wider body that seems to hoover just above the road, this car has a dominating presence and more “muscles,” yet still has all the makings of a true Continental GT. One of the new car’s most defining features: the new crystal-effect LED headlamps.
Let’s get inside now. It’s not hard to instantly notice the exquisite Bentley craftsmanship. One of my favorite features is the new Bentley rotating display that allows you to choose between three different fascia panels on the dashboard: a high-resolution touchscreen; a more classic panel with three analogue dials (my personal favorite); and a sleek, veneer-only face. The first edition also features the Mulliner driving specifications and a handcrafted interior with the Diamond in Diamond quilted pattern on seats, door panels and rear quarter panels.
THE MOST EXQUISITE
While I’m making the drive to Monaco, Angela is arriving via helicopter with Monacair in their VVIP chopper: an Agusta AW139. As part of the surprise, I brought the new Continental GT to pick her up straight from the helicopter, greeting her in the Bentley with a bouquet of red roses in hand.
As she steps off the chopper, I notice Angela is wearing a stunning set of jewelry from the Serpentes collection, part of the Orlov jewelry line she founded in Monaco with Christian Orlov. Precious jewels are set in breathtaking designs that are both elegant and artistic. More on this later!
A quick look at my attire: I’m wearing an iconic Bentley Collection black leather jacket, handcrafted with the same attention to detail that goes into their cars, making for the perfect accessory to drive the Continental GT in style. And since I’m always on the go, I carry the Bentley Collection travel bag so I’m always ready for my next destination.
LEATHER JACKET & BAG
In the afternoon, we decided to go for a walk and do a bit of shopping with the cute “beasts” as I like to call them: two fluffy and extraordinary white Samoyeds who exude a ton of energy and need just as much attention.
We left the Continental GT near the Casino Square in the center of Monte-Carlo and made our way to outdoor shopping area Pavillons Monte-Carlo.
For our stroll, Angela slipped on a magnificent necklace and earrings made with exceptional pearls and diamonds forming a snake-like shape.
She looks perfect for the surprise dinner and gift I have waiting at sleek modern house nestled on the French Riviera, not far from Monaco.
We step in, the table is set by the pool and a special Orlov box is waiting to be opened. But first, let’s start with a sip of the marvelous Dom Pérignon P2 Champagne.
ow I think she’s ready for her gift, and she starts to smile as I crack open the box revealing what’s inside: another gorgeous Orlov necklace from the Serpentes Collection. With its unique shape and eye-catching number of cascading diamonds, this is not the kind of necklace every girl can wear, but I must say, it is the perfect fit for Angela.
