Masterpiece – The Art of Fine Living is an opinionated characterization of the lifestyle of the top one percent: people who enjoy the finest in life. It is designed for them, as well as for the people who aspire to the universe that is reserved for a few.
Though this magazine displays elegance and lavish luxury, we take consideration for our provenance to promote the theory of ‘holistic wealth’ from an African worldview, which holds that wealth only finds meaning when it is employed to work for self and society.
At the functional level, you will find Masterpiece – The Art of Fine Living to be a handbook that is designed to vitalize the sophisticated cosmopolite with well-advised content that articulates the portrait of wealth and its joys, privileges and meaning.
While presenting an eclectic aggregation of human-interest stories, we will attempt to take consideration for the whole gamut of the human experience of life. So, as we talk about ‘fine’ art, we will also talk about ‘fine’ dining. All in the same breath as ‘fine’ grooming, and so on… This will empower the aesthete with a knowledge resource for the collection of lifestyle experiences and products; from well crafted artisanal knick-knacks to art and objects from masters and even emerging talents.
Content covers Art, Fashion, Timepieces, Jewellery and Accessories, Travel and Adventure, Wellness and Wellbeing, Wealth Management, etc. Other content will include Wine, Cars, Luxury Toys, Technology, Real Estate, Fine Dining and a Gift Guide.
So Masterpiece – The Art Of Fine Living adopts a curatorial approach to the products and stories that we feature here, so that we can contribute to a civilization in which people who have invested time and hard work in creating wealth can enjoy the life of good taste and pass on that legacy to inspire their offspring and others. Which makes Masterpiece – the art of fine living more of a cause than your regular magazine.
In this first edition, therefore, we exemplify our philosophy through our feature on the ethic of Haute; that is the globally received definition of high culture. Haute is the timeless art of personalization and slow making. Haute is the antithesis of the proceeding spirit of our time, which focuses on mass production and conspicuous consumption.
Haute is the reason that making and craftsmanship will always be in demand by those who care about building value. To appreciate the beauty of a life of quality, you have to appreciate Haute. This is why Haute is about value that goes beyond cash; a standard that is attained to by those who appreciate the quality that mastery imbues a product with. It is one factor in measuring the good life and true wealth.
Because we know you will appreciate Masterpiece – The Art of Fine Living as a running narrative on the art of fine living and wealth as time and culture progress, today we commit to update you with what such a life means now and will mean even tomorrow. We invite you to join our cause and enjoy the journey.
