Luxury & Lifestyle
We have created a network, www.thecollectivebyls.com which aims to bring together a “collective” of ideas from leading figures and commentators in the fast-moving luxury and lifestyle space and provide opportunities for members to network, collaborate and share insights and knowledge through a series of events and accompanying editorials.
This is a place where members can learn about and share issues and trends with like-minded business people, driving commercial understanding and fostering valuable relationships. With this at the core of our thinking, The Collective by Lewis Silkin is a tool for members to come together and talk about the issues that matter.
We would like to invite our clients, contacts, friends and colleagues from across the lifestyle and luxury industries – including fashion, hotels, beauty, arts, travel, automotive and F&B – to join us as we together create The Collective by Lewis Silkin.

Champagne at Tiffany’s!04 December 2019
Apologies for the terrible pun, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” didn’t sound appropriate for the soon-to-be owner. It has been announced last week that LVMH has agreed a deal to acquire Tiffany & Co. at a valuation of $16.6bn. And just before the Christmas rush of “acquisitions” of perfectly wrapped turquoise boxes!
