The Belmond Introduces A New Train Carriage Designed By Wes Anderson
Based in London, I cover fashion, the arts, culture and travel. I have had the chance of interviewing an array of actors, musicians and artists, along with leading designers, from Valentino Garavani to Isabel Marant.
Very much in keeping with the Wes Anderson aesthetic, his magical and alluring dream-like storytelling is lovingly applied to the origins of the 1950s carriage. Here, there is a merging of symmetrical lines and a rich unique color palette that’s perfectly packaged in the Art Nouveau style.
After all, Cygnus is named after the Greek God of Balance and is often personified as a swan, and so, these references are evident throughout the design, from the intricate waves and swan detailing in the marquetry, and the silver leaf on the ceiling that reflects like water, to the swan shaped champagne coolers.
BelmondBelmond / Nicolas ReceveurNot only is there a new tailored look, there's also an accompanying elevated guest experience with two new private coupés in the carriage. Here, there's a focus on detail, delight, and luxury with an intimate space that features 360 degree handcrafted marquetry. This can be exclusively booked for up to four guests, boarding at London Victoria where guests are greeted with priority boarding, and of course, there's free-flowing champagne available throughout the journey. headtopics.com
Along with plentiful fizz and a specially designed cocktail menu, there’s also contemporary British menus, all of which is served on crockery that’s exclusive to the private coupé. Guests can also travel in the open carriage as part of the regular Pullman experience, or choose to book the entire carriage for groups and celebrations up to 26 people.

State Lotteries Didn't Help Boost Vaccination RatesAccording to a new study, lotteries in 19 states designed to encourage people to get vaccinated for COVID-19 did not alter the rate of those who got the shot.

Texas Superintendent Apologizes After Official Calls for “Opposing” Views to HolocaustThe comment came during a training session with teachers to comply with a new state law meant to prevent schools from teaching 'critical race theory.' So not adding Mein Kampf to the curriculum? I'm not even Jewish, and I can appreciate this. There are two sides of math, two plus two makes four and - it doesn't. We need opposing views in math and at least two different math books.
