In our weekly series, we bring you the latest in luxury news around the world. This week’s highlights: NetJets expands fleet, a summer getaway in Barcelona and a phone that folds

Dyson Airstrait Straightener

A natural straight style with no heat damage with the Dyson Airstrait Straightener

Always on the cusp of tech, Dyson adds another item to its hair care line-up: the Dyson Airstrait straightener. Without the use of hot plates, it dries and straightens hair simultaneously without the risk of heat damage. Powered by the Hyperdymium motor, it generates the airflow needed to dry and straighten hair at the same time. You get natural, straight style that’s free of frizz and flyaways. Other features include an intelligent heat control feature that prevents overheating and styling modes that set the look.


Google Pixel Fold

More than just a Samsung clone

It’s a foldable phone that combines the best of both worlds. When the Google Pixel Fold is closed, it’s a sleek and compact smartphone (it fits in your pocket!). When it’s opened, it converts into a powerful tablet; one with a large, immersive display.
Powered by the Google Tensor G2 chip, operation on the Pixel Fold is fast and responsive. Battery-wise, it can easily get you through a full day of use. With a versatile camera system that can take stunning photos and videos in any lighting condition, there are other innovative features that can adhere you to the Pixel Fold. Take the Dual Screen interpreter mode; this allows you to translate live conversations. In real time.
This is a phone that does it all. Even better, it’s one that you don’t have to bend backwards for.


The Barcelona Edition

A summer getaway for the culture vultures

Located in the beating heart of Barcelona, the hotel is close to all the city’s major attractions. With 100 rooms, each decorated with walnut panelling and beds that welcome your tired bodies with its imported luxury Italian linens and embossed Spanish leather headboards.
The hotel is home to two restaurants—Veraz and a rooftop restaurant called, uh The Roof—and a bar called Punch Room. The Roof offers a variety of cuisines, from Catalan tapas to international fare, your eyes will also be filled with the stunning views of the city.
The Barcelona Edition offers something for everyone. Whether you’re a foodie looking for Michelin-starred dining, a culture vulture eager to explore Gaudí’s masterpieces or simply looking to relax under the sun, you’ll find these and more at the Barcelona Edition.
