August is shaping up to be stellar. For three nights across France, the nuits des étoiles will encourage contemplation of the night sky. Later in the month, there’ll be a total solar eclipse in America. There’s terrestrial as well as celestial fun on the docket: food festivals, state fairs, street festivals, and sunflowers; vacations, new films, beach reads, and rosé. There’ll even be football games! From wild abandon in the desert to a genteel art fair in Japan – from classic cars to tennis stars – there’s potential joy all around. It’s the last full month of summer – it’s time for you to find your summer love. Here’s our Dandelion Chandelier list of the most important events in the global luxury ecosystem in August 2017 – everything you need to know, all in one place, to enjoy luxurious experiences all month long.
