FOUNDER’S LETTER Welcome to Montage and the winter issue of Montage Magazine! Every time I make travel plans or spend time on a video call with someone in another country, I have the same thought: The world is shrinking. Globe-trotting is easier than ever before. We all have a few friends or family members who have ventured out to experience life in another country.We can walk down the street to try traditional Thai dishes or do a quick Google search to get a glimpse of the ski conditions in New Zealand. International influences are part of our everyday experiences, and it’s no different at Montage.While each hotel and resort is firmly rooted in its local community, there are undeniably cosmopolitan aspects in our accommodations, restaurants, spas, decor and more. That global sensibility finds its place throughout this issue of Montage Magazine. For instance, an article on high-end products for air travel offers something for every frequent flyer. And perhaps those travelers will find inspiration in another story on one of this season’s hottest destinations: Iceland. You can also experience treasures from abroad right here in the states, such as Aston Martin’s new DB11, showcased on page 44. Or, learn about worldly sips in articles about the ancient winemaking methods of Eurasian Georgia or the international obsession with coffee, including premier Australian brand Vittoria Coffee. A perennial icon, French luxury goods company Dior makes an appearance with a festive holiday makeup line and the launch of its home decor collection, inspired by the aesthetic tastes of founder Christian Dior. Of course, there’s more to discover in the following pages, including an introduction to the exciting sport of dogsledding and a fairytale wedding at Montage Beverly Hills. There’s a fascinating look at colored diamonds and, for those just interested in curling up with a good book this season, Montage’s literary ambassador and bestselling author Brad Meltzer lists his favorite winter reading materials. It’s true—the world is at our fingertips and it seems faraway places are not so far away anymore. At Montage, we hope to offer the best of both worlds: the comforts of home with touches from around the globe to satisfy your wanderlust, if only for a couple days. We hope you enjoy your time here—whether it’s for a staycation or an escape— and join us again soon. Warmly, Alan J. Fuerstman Founder and CEO
