Alternatives: from the most spectacular suite at the Hotel Arts to the new Patek Philippe

The Arts hotel, probably the most complete hotel in the world (it has it all: the sea at its feet, a spa on the heights, impeccable gastronomy and service) marked a before and after not only in the architecture of Barcelona, ​​but also in its inauguration. but also in terms of commitment to art.

Now, 30 years after its inception, Arts recovers that pioneering vocation of supporting creativity and the multiple and diverse languages ​​of art.

For this, to the 500 works that make up its heritage, it adds the most sensational of its rooms. It is the Signatur Suite, 200 meters covered with views of the Mediterranean and the works of the We Collect gallery by Enrique del Río and Amaia de Mekaña (Romain Blanck to begin with, who has already sold almost all of his paintings) where local artists and international.

Everything is there perfect. More if they serve you dinner, with the signature and the two Michelin stars of Paco Pérez, without going down from the watchtower: the art suite is on the 30th floor.

The Aquanaut Luce Rainbow, the first chronograph in the Patek Philippe women's collection, with the reference 7968/300R-001, is distinguished by its bezel adorned with a rainbow of multicolored sapphires and baguette-cut diamonds arranged in a double row using the technique of "invisible setting".

A beautiful machine of maximum efficiency with a mother-of-pearl dial, engraved with twelve pink gold applied indexes enhanced with multicolored sapphires.

Silk knit, cashmere, taffeta, the finest leather and her own designs mark the fashion that Marta Canut makes for La Bul, her flagship boutique at 594 Diagonal in Barcelona.

To the garments from her own collection, which clients from all over Spain order by order, she adds her selection of Red Valentino, Just Cavalli and Walter Woulaz. But above all what is appreciated are his style advice, always one step ahead of trends without ever losing elegance.

Her loyal clients (generations go from grandmothers to daughters and granddaughters) know that Marta Canut is capable of designing the best suits with the right androgynous touch, the most sophisticated dresses (which can be turned into coats, why not?) and to give new life to cashmere cardigans by wearing them next to the skin and with a bow tie tied at the neck.

For this season, he suggests using (and abusing) the brightest colors, especially purple, but also complete suits, whether in technical fabrics or in the softest leather.

Mrs Toolip, one of the most restless galleries in Barcelona, ​​proposes Black and White, her black and white look at the work of 31 artists from 15 countries. In the exhibition curated by Joan Abelló, Jordi Mollá (in the image), Freda People, Micol Cornali, Adela Beltrán, Jaume Tenes and Mrs Toolip herself stand out.

British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert collaborates with Andreu World on his new Calma Chair collection: a family of chairs for working at home that combines the functionality of an operational and ergonomic seat with the attractiveness and accessibility of home.
