editor’s letter

Style

Sizzling Yet another season has whizzed past at the speed of light, and here we are talking fall. Fall fashion, specifically, and every year as the South Florida weather seems to get hotter and remain hotter longer, the images alone that term conjures—sweaters, jackets, boots—can bring me, and probably many of you as well, to the verge of heat stroke. But this is Miami, and we are no slouches when it comes to being of the moment, whether it’s with fashion or anything else. That said, there is an art to outfitting your closet with key pieces from the fall runways, despite the fact that the AC in those closets is yanked down to 69 degrees. And if anyone knows what that art is, it’s our group of style experts—and cohorts of our very own Wordy Girl, Maria Tettamanti, who harvested their hints for us—who in this issue dispense their top tips for making those trends fit your life. Allow them to impart their wisdom by turning to “Style Counsel,” on page 102. And for pure sartorial decadence, keep turning until you get to Gio and Marcela Alma’s latest masterpiece, “The Spice of Life,” on page 128, a glorious

homage to the palette, textures and silhouettes that will shape the best-dressed girl’s wardrobe in the coming season. She just has to have the life to wear them. Elsewhere—out west in Utah, to be precise—the skiing season is coming up, and our fourth annual Ski Section, starting on page 141, is a go-to guide for any and all of you who are thinking a trip to the slopes might be in order. The “5 Guys” are back, although there are about four times as many of them now, and they’ve got the scoop on where to ski, stay, play, eat and more. And if skiing isn’t your thing, but your better half loves the idea, go along for the ride. What the heck? At least out there, you can don your fur-trimmed cropped bomber jacket from Givenchy’s fall-winter runway show and not break a sweat. The only thing glistening will be the snow. Enjoy the issue.

Both stores will be located on the street-accessible first floor of the outdoor shopping center, where the rest of Brickell City Centre’s luxury retailers will also be. (Premium and contemporary retailers will be the emphasis on the second and third floors, along with a mix of beauty, home decor, jewelry, apparel and other retailers.) “Valentino and Chopard represent the unprecedented level of shopping that we envision for Brickell City Centre and for the transformation of Miami into a global metropolis and rich shopping destination,” says Courtney Lord, VP of leasing for Whitman Family Development. The two brands join Saks Fifth Avenue, which has signed as Brickell City Centre’s anchor tenant with three floors of the retail center and street-level access. The condo, office, and hotel components at Brickell City Centre are set to open at the end of this year. For more details, visit brickellcitycentre.com.

SMOOTH SAILING Florida Yachts international has created a new division to oversee sales and purchases oF superYachts. By John Buchanan

Q&A with Simon Gibson

70

AventurA MAgAzine

Florida Yachts International, founded in 1992 and focusing on yachts of up to 100 feet for buyers and sellers from the US and Central and South America, has launched a new global division that specializes in superyachts of more than 100 feet that sell for $5 million to $150 million. FYI Superyachts Partners Simon Gibson, a London native and well-known and respected yacht expert, and Ralph Navarro, the Cuba-born founder of Florida Yachts International

who emigrated to Miami 45 years ago, combine decades of international expertise and a shared passion for the exclusive world of yachting. The parent company’s longstanding reputation is built on exceptional knowledge and exemplary personal service. “Regardless of the client or the size of the yacht we’re representing,” Navarro says, “we always strive to think creatively.” FYI Superyachts is located at 2550 South Bayshore Drive, Suite 102, in Miami. For more information, call 305.854.6020 or visit floridayachtsinternational.com.

Q:1

Q:2

Q:3

Q:4

What is your specific market niche?

How much direct competition do you have?

“FYI Superyachts services ultra-high net worth individuals that are in the market for yachts larger than 100 feet. We provide a full range of services, from the representation of clients in the sale or purchase of superyachts to retail charters, charter management and new construction. New construction projects will be initiated with the top yacht shipyards around the world and overseen by us. And such a project could take place anywhere, because there are top yacht builders located all over the world.”

“We have a significant number of competitors; I couldn’t even begin to put a number on it. But there are also a number of things that set FYI Superyachts apart. We bring to the table a combination of things. In terms of representing yacht sales, we are experienced users of all the available tools used in such transactions. We know how to market superyachts. We work very closely with all of the world’s major yachting websites, such as Superyachts.com. We are very aggressive with online media and social media.”

What is the secret to success in the world of superyachts?

From a buyer’s perspective, what is the most important factor in finding the right yacht?

“You have to understand that each yacht tells a tale. And we understand that in a very specific way. Most of these yachts were either purchased, fully customized or built by their current owners, so each one is intrinsically different. So we work extremely closely with the seller to make sure that the yacht is represented in the most precise and effective manner possible. As far as the purchase of a superyacht, we work very closely with the brokerage industry and our network of brokers.”

“It’s making a very balanced, value-based decision. The market, as it currently exists, is buoyant, but it’s not flooded with brokerage inventory. So you have to look very, very hard at presenting a wide range of opportunities for buyers and have the entire process be based on value, based on what is available at a particular time. You also have to look at how that value will make sense next year and the year after and the year after that.”

MIXING IT UP encounter unexpectedly exciting styles for your decor at Window couture and bedding design. “usually when clients come to me for something new, i start by asking, ‘What is your personal style? Your lifestyle? What do you like?’” explains Larisa Krutous, owner of Style Furniture & Décor. “Because everyone has a personality and every house or condo has to reflect the personality of the people who live there.” that said, here in Miami she finds her clients are generally open to intriguing variations on modern, traditional or classic looks—whichever is their preference. “i prefer to do mixed looks,” she says. “Let’s say the wife likes a more contemporary style and her husband likes a more classic look. i usually try to compromise and make both sides happy. right now the trend is to make classic look like modern and modern look like classic. We carry lines that show how to do it either way.” For example, she says, you might enjoy the lines of a classic credenza, but finished in an unexpected color such as lime or fuchsia, or a classic chaise upholstered in a modern fabric, which, Krutous points out, completely changes the look. She reiterates that the most important thing is giving her clients something to forward to at the end of the day. “they have to live with it, so it’s simple to listen to what they like and create that. So when they come home, they open the door and say, “this is exactly what i wanted!” visit stylefurnituredecor.com

When it comes to real estate news in South Florida, there are updates every day— arguably, several times a day. The market is always evolving and changing, and right now, growing—nonstop. “When I started advertising Miami in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, most of the phone calls were to ask me if I was selling in New York,” says Jose Augusto, owner of Algebra Realty, who started out in the real estate business in his native Brazil 50 years ago and has been working the Miami market for the past 20 years. “Today, maybe 95 percent are asking for Miami, 4 percent New York and the remaining 1 percent the rest of the planet.” Today, the company’s customer base is largely Brazilian, with buyers from Latin America and Canada and a few from Europe as well. Augusto notes a clear trend in potential buyers: most come with South Beach or Bal Harbour in mind, but not all have the budget to buy in those areas. That’s when Augusto introduces them to the charms of the properties available in Aventura, Sunny Isles Beach and the surrounding areas. And though it is a boutique firm, he says, “We offer all real estate services, like residential, commercial, investments, and the most complicated, property management—mainly for a lot of non-residents in this country.” For more information on Algebra Investments & Realty Corp., visit algebrarealty.com. 74

PASSING THROUGH Want to up the style ante in your home fast? Change your doors. What’s the first thing you think of when it comes to sprucing up your décor? Chances are, replacing doors isn’t even in your top three. But you can make an esthetic impact by doing just that, especially with the range of options available today. “Updating interior doors absolutely will change the outlook of the house and increase its value,” says Tuana Birol of Zena Doors. The most popular trends today: Contemporary and pocket doors, wood veneer, lacquer finishes, and shades of white, gray and wenge. Installation isn’t complicated but is best done by an installer or a contractor, and while cost depends on what you choose, high quality without sky-high prices is what Birol says Zena is all about. “We believe homeowners with tight budgets should be able to have good quality doors with a European look. We’re able to accommodate a range of budgets—that’s our forte.” Zena Doors are sold across South Florida, at Bath Trends stores, Shell Lumber, and in their Hollywood showroom.

By Steve Siler

AventurA MAgAzine

Automobiles are innately functional creations—getting from Point A to Point B remains their primary purpose—but by virtue of their being, well, physical things, they also have an element of style. And when it comes to style, some err on the side of the practical and emotionless, while others take a more evocative and passionate countenance. The all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class coupe models featured here are pure examples of the latter. Available in GLE450 AMG and a mega-powered GLE63 form, the GLE-Class coupes are essentially four-door hatchback versions of the familiar M-Class crossover, which also has been refreshed and rechristened the GLE-Class for 2016. As with most coupes, the GLE-Class coupe is a pure style statement, with a thick, muscular body and arcing roofline replacing the SUV model’s boxy profile. Highlighted—literally— by jewelry-like LED headlamps, the GLE’s coupe’s bold face is

shared with the SUV model, but manages to look completely different when grafted to the coupe’s sculptural fuselage. Sure, it’s harder to fit tall people and cargo in the back than in the SUV model thanks to a lower roof and an extra-high liftover, but as BMW has proven with its X6, a sizable chunk of luxury SUV buyers don’t give a damn about how much stuff you can fit in the back. It’s all about rockin’ a look. Mercedes did, however, make room for plenty of spoils in the GLE Coupe’s lavish interior. These are MercedesBenz automobiles, after all, with all of the attendant cache and sybaritic delights, including a sparkling Harmon/ Kardon audio system and marvelous sport contoured seats. Mercedes redesigned the M-Class’ dashboard and other details as part of the mid-cycle refresh that begat the GLE-Class in the first place, and the results are splendid. Elaborate stitch patterns and lustrous new wood and carbon fiber veneers are part of the GLE’s new suite of available trappings, and the porcelain-and-black “designo” edition is simply gorgeous. A panoramic sunroof and a flat-bottom steering wheel come standard on the GLE63, as does a sprinkling of other sportified interior elements. The GLE-Class coupe comes in two flavors, which can best be summed up as “powerful” (362-hp GLE450 AMG) and “ridiculous” (577-hp GLE63 S). Both trucks are ostensibly performance-oriented, at least by crossover standards. In a straight line, the GLE450 AMG (which is powered by a zesty, 362-hp turbocharged V-6) accelerates with authority and a snappy bark. The GLE 63, however, gets the full, AMG performance treatment, including a monster turbo V-8 motor with 82

577 hp that can blow many a Porsche away during stoplight fights, should you care to pick one with a driver sitting two feet lower than you. For such sizable and tall automobiles, each GLE-Class Coupe can handle its mass heroically well when the pavement gets twisty, but between the high seating position and formidable mass, hurling one around a corner to find their handling limits feels a tad surreal. Gearheads and lead-foot drivers may insist on the flagship GLE63, but for most folks, the GLE450 AMG will be more than sufficient, and with its considerably higher fuel efficiency, you’ll be stopping at the pump far less often. The GLE-Class Coupes are in dealerships now, with prices starting at a tick over $66K for the GLE450 AMG, and $110K for the GLE63 model. Naturally, these prices are a fair bit higher than their SUV counterparts, to further filter out customers who rely on their left brain for making automotive purchases. Indeed, this is the kind of automobile that sells on emotion, not rationality. And when it comes to this and any of the lovely coupes it sells, Mercedes-Benz would have it no other way. 84

Cırcle John Stamos gained fame on Full House nearly 30 years ago. And after three decades of acting and adventures, he’s returning to the role that made him a household name.

AventurA MAgAzine

It could be said that John Stamos is coming full circle. Depending on whether you’re a soap fan or not, you probably first became aware of him when he shot to heartthrob status as Uncle Jessie on the classic sitcom Full House. Since the show’s finale 20 years ago, Stamos has been steadily busy, between subsequent TV roles (like that of Dr. Tony Gates on ER), Broadway stints (as Albert in the revival of Bye Bye Birdie) ad campaigns, and more. In between, there were a few bumps in the road—a divorce from former model Rebecca Romijn; a stint in rehab—but all in all, Stamos’ star has been rising for decades. And it still is. Stamos actually began his acting career with the role of Blackie Parrish on the soap General Hospital in late January 1982, for which he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in 1984. Stamos decided to move on two years later, when he landed the lead

PHOtO:

role in a short-lived CBS sitcom called Dreams, in which he played an aspiring musician in a band of the same name. Later, he played a role in the sitcom You Again? alongside Jack Klugman. Then came Full House, the show that arguably solidified Stamos’ career. He played Jesse, who lived with his brother in-law, whose deceased wife was Jesse’s older sister. Danny’s best friend, Joey, also lives in the house with them. Together they helped each other raise three young girls (one of whom was played by the now megamoguls Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who took turns in the role of the baby of the family, Michelle Tanner). In 1995, after eight seasons, the series ended, but this past April, Stamos announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that Netflix would be picking the show up for a 13-episode reboot airing sometime in 2016. Stamos returned to work with a vengeance to kick off Fuller House, and shortly afterwards, on June 12, he was stopped and arrested for driving under the influence in Santa Monica. After being released into the care of the hospital, he tweeted out a thanks to everyone for their love and support before spending 30 days in rehab for substance abuse. His sense of humor remained intact, despite the gravity of the event; he even cracked a joke about the arrest during a live taping of the show about a scene he couldn’t shoot because the prop car didn’t show, saying, “Well, I have a car... but I can’t drive.” That sense of humor has, in addition to his smoldering good looks, always been a huge part of Stamos’ appeal. In August, the Fuller House cast took a break from filming to hang out and barbecue at cast member Lori Loughlin’s house, where the gang clowned around like in the old days: Stamos’ co-star Bob Saget Instagrammed a classic shot of himself laughing alongside Stamos, with Dave Coulier floating in the water behind them and the caption “I’m not saying who, but someone in this picture poop’d in the pool.” But Stamos has not traditionally been a one-project guy, and that remains true today. On top of Fuller House, Stamos will also be starring in a new show, Grandfathered, on Fox this fall. The premise: Stamos’ character is a longtime bachelor whose life is disrupted when he learns that he not only has a son, but also a two-year-old granddaughter. That, and he’s got a TV movie, Members Only, which takes a look at life within an elite private country club from the perspective of its members and staff, coming up. The still-handsome-after-all-these-years Stamos is enjoying the progression of his life and career, and why not? Although he says, “I’m finally looking older and inviting my wrinkles,” he’s still in full possession of those dark, delicious Greek looks that set hearts aflutter when he was sporting a mullet as Blackie on General Hospital. He’s still witty and self-deprecating (“I started Pilates. I’m the only guy in there. They plot before I get there: ‘How can we make John look ridiculous? Because every exercise involved my legs up, like I’m in stirrups or something”) and his career keeps on going. Stamos is —John StamoS definitely coming full circle—but the circle’s not closed just yet.

£ TRENDS TO WATCH: “I’m really feeling cropped flare pants,

ruffles and retro seafaring styles for fall.” £ HOW TO INTERPRET FALL TRENDS IN WARMER CLIMATES: “With

lows of 75 degrees in Miami, it’s hard not to live perpetually in shirtdresses. I think the best way to add a little fall into our wardrobes is by using richer textiles in Florida weather-appropriate cuts. For example, try a suede miniskirt.” £ REACH FOR THESE PATTERNS: “Bold, graphic and geometric prints. In

addition, any prints with an early ‘70s influence.” £ EVERY CLOSET NEEDS THIS: “I think every woman should own a good

silk scarf. Am I French yet?”

» Regina aRRiola Cauff

fOunder Of Style raC COntent CreatiOn and prOduCtiOn COMpany

£ FALL TRENDS TO WATCH: “Fall is all about florals, lace and fluid silhou-

ettes with a nod to ‘70s hippie glamour—think wide-leg pants paired with a lace, high-neck Victorian blouse. Fortunately, it’s a look that is both on trend and appropriate for South Florida.” £ HOW TO WEAR THE TRENDS IN SOUTH FLORIDA: “Suede is a big

trend this season, but translating a head-to-toe suede look in South Florida can be challenging. Instead, I’ll invest in key pieces, like a suede miniskirt in a rich cognac color, or a handbag like Chloé’s Faye shoulder bag. Styling Fall trends in warm weather is all about balance: just a touch of suede, cashmere or heavier fabrics with airy, lighter pieces that speak to this market year round.” £ FALL MUST-HAVE PIECE: “A mod minidress that can be styled countless

ways, or a suede handbag in an earthy tone like camel, olive or rust.” £ GO-TO HUES: “Cognac, camel, rust, olive, burgundy, navy and shades

of purple like aubergine and magenta.”

textures; for example, an animal print lace or animal print chiffon. reds and browns are going to be the dominant color palette. And lastly, maxi dresses and ‘70s-style pants with legs that flare.” £ FALL FASHION FAUX PAS: “no more jeggings worn during the evening—

this applies to both men and women! And remember, it’s OK to keep a little summer in your wardrobe and soften the reds and browns with light pastels, especially pink.” £ HOW TO DRESS “COOL” IN HOT SOUTH FLORIDA: “Lightweight knits are

excellent accents for a woman’s wardrobe. imagine a cropped bolero, a tank top paired with a cardigan, or even a lightweight cashmere wrap—all of these are excellent for South Florida’s warmer climate.”

£ THE BIGGEST FASHION DON’T: “Do not have your clothes fit you

improperly! Wear items that fit your personality but ones that fit you well, too. Make sure your blazers are fit in the shoulders and hem your pants properly—this will make all the difference with how clothes and styles look on you.” £ BUY THIS NOW: “A well-fitting coat. It’s all in the tailoring. Outerwear can

transform your entire look. really invest in that one great outerwear piece, as it can carry you throughout the entire season and be used with a myriad of ensembles. i personally loved the coats Chloé showed for fall. they were youthful enough to wear with jeans yet elegant enough to wear with dresses. And if you want to go that extra step, buy something in camel, as that is the go-to outerwear color for fall.”

major print spinoff of that trend is patchwork. it was everywhere with almost every designer. to wear this can be tricky. i would wear one patchwork item, such as pants or a miniskirt, and pair it with something solid such as a silk blouse and a fitted blazer so as not to compete with your standout item.”

£ WEAR THIS COME SEPTEMBER: “A must-have is a great

fitted or bomber-style jacket. A lightweight cashmere shawl, wrap or poncho is perfect over any outfit as well.” £ RELEVANT PRINTS: “Some of the most prevalent fabric

choices that designers across the spectrum are showing have a ‘70s vibe with psychedelic looks. Think retro geometric and optical graphic prints, floral and swirl patterns, soft-hued paisley and bold color-blocking.” £ STANDOUT FALL STATEMENTS: “Big bold belts, capes,

lingerie as outerwear, Victorian influences, patchwork and statement shoes.” £ BEST FASHION TIP: “Designers are showing lots of

patterns, prints, tweeds, patchwork and busy fabrics, but wear them in a fashionably modern and moderate way— not head to toe!”

Los Angeles-based sound producer and designer Doug rogers loves to sit on the couch of his Setai Miami Beach apartment and revel in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Right: One of his three functional terraces takes advantage of his love for natural light.

As soon as Doug Rogers saw this

Setai Resort & Residences condominium in Miami Beach, he was intrigued. After he bought the 15th-floor unit in the 40-story building at a good price, he knew he wanted to create something different, envisioning an airy beach house that took full advantage of South Florida’s natural light. “This space was interesting to me right away,” says Rogers, a New Zealand-bred expert sound producer and designer who founded EastWest, a virtual (software) instrument design firm. “Not only was this the only round part of The Setai, but most rooms there are Asian influenced, and I wanted something different.” So Rogers, who designs interiors as therapy when he’s not working with top recording artists like Prince, Aerosmith, Billy Idol and Public Enemy, among others, went modern and minimalist, creating an Italian-style beach house. He spent three years designing the 3,627-squarefoot, double-height unit (with 18-foot ceilings) with a topnotch sound system. At night, the magical space transforms into a seductive jewel of sound and color;

Above: the immaculate kitchen is small, but offers modern appliances from Sub-Zero and miele.

by day, thanks in part to transparent wall features, it becomes sunny and serene, ideal for quiet contemplation. “I wanted to be able to sit on the sofa and see the beach with a good sound point system,” says Rogers, who is based in Los Angeles and recently worked with the soundtrack creators for the Netflix series House of Cards. “We had no neighbors in the Setai unit’s location, so I knew we could make a lot of noise.” Rogers designed two oceanfront master suites, using terrazzo floors because they keep the rooms cool, a cantilevered glass staircase, custom white lacquer cabinetry, an LED color lighting system, hand-installed mosaics in the bathrooms, three covered balconies and a multimedia theater. He installed four air conditioning systems for maximum comfort and to protect the valued equipment. “Setai is a celebrity-oriented building, so we wanted to be able to party here and not have to shut down for any reason,” says Rogers, who has developed five homes in the Los Angeles area and is offering this unit for $16.9 million. His design challenges were the high walls and having only one door through which to transport materials in and out. Spending a great deal of time watching and waiting and seeking out the perfect furnishings was also frustrating. But ultimately, his meticulous attention to detail paid off. To start, the all-white living room is stunning. The view from the sofa is similar to that you’d have sitting in the cockpit of a fancy plane while flying over the ocean. Inside, Rogers created a modern and spare Italian look, with white couches and a glass coffee table against floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in the blues of the sky and water. September 2015

the downstairs powder room is designed in black and silver Bisazza, including the amazing Michelangelo on the wall. Because it’s glass, the sink seems to disappear. there is also a shower in the room.

The design of this entire apartment is so unique that there is nothing else that comes close in height, views, or location in such a high-end building.

There are geometric boxes with lighting, and an overall club atmosphere that fits with the intoxicating sound system. The room has 18-foot tall columns and an exclusive system of rounded glass facing the ocean. It was designed to transform into a dance floor accented by a broad palette of LED-accented colors. Rogers added double ceilings to soundproof the space, which sits over the garage, making it possible to elevate the sound and lend it a nightlife feel. “Doug’s experience as an expert sound producer also gave him the ability to create a music system that could compete with the best nightclubs,” note Beatriz Nahuz and Claudia Murad, principals of TSG Unique Living Miami, an affiliate of The Solution Group and the brokerage representing Rogers in the sale of the unit. Beside the entrance is the cantilevered staircase made of custom glass, designed to give those in the cathedral-like space the full effect of the ceilings. The apartment also has an LED lighting system that turns the sculpted walls into custom works of art. The media room, which has an 80-inch LED screen TV, also contains four sections of mirrors to reflect light in different ways. “This adds another dimension to the apartment, virtually doubling the space,” says Rogers. That space expands even further out onto the 1,000 total square feet of the unit’s three balconies, two on either side of the living room and a third in back with a plunge pool. All have plenty of room for 112

lounging and taking in the view. The dining area overlooks one terrace and sparkles with an artistic glass chandelier shining above the white table and chairs. The kitchen is modern, sleek and small, since, Rogers says, most people don’t cook. “Room service is everywhere, and the Setai has wonderful restaurants,” he says. “But I installed state-of-theart appliances just to have them.” Each of the master suites measures 2,800 square feet. Both have glorious ocean views and bathrooms tiled with Bisazza glass mosaics and Italian sinks, faucets and toilets. Each component or furnishing was selected because it was perfect for the space. “The design of this entire apartment is so unique that there is nothing else that comes close in height, views, or location in such a high-end building,” says Rogers. “It can never be duplicated, because no one can build this high again. And the Setai security is great.” In Miami’s increasingly competitive residential market, sophisticated international buyers are looking for drop-dead gorgeous design with water views. This apartment has everything, including the furniture available to the buyer. Each room was well thought out, and nothing was left to chance. “I take everything I have learned from the best artists and idea makers from around the world,” says Rogers, “and apply it to creating living experiences that inspire people to enjoy life, music, art and the natural world.”

Comfort It really is better in the Bahamas, especially when you can spend a few glorious days with your best girls at the sublime Kamalame Cay. By Maria TeTTaManTi

What if I told you

there’s a private island hideaway a stone’s throw away from Miami where the beach is free of crowds, the ocean is as flat as glass, the food is exceptionally exquisite and the accommodations mirror the sublime creations of India Hicks? Well, it exists. Nestled off the coast of Nassau in the Bahamas, I relished a far-too-fleeting weekend on Kamalame Cay with two of my cronies for a much needed and overdue girlfriend getaway. You see, it’s been 13 years since I’ve taken a girlfriend getaway (I blame good old-fashioned guilt), so when the idea to visit this off-the-beaten-path destination with my friends presented itself, I decided to throw caution to the Caribbean wind. And thank goodness I did, because this estrogen-charged excursion was one for the books.

Our accommodations? Breathtaking. Think seashell chandeliers, freshly cut palm fronds, white couches, nautical nuances and tropical prints—our British Colonial-style home emulated the neighboring kaleidoscopic ocean. In fact, our villa is what co-owner David Hew has fittingly coined as “island chic.” Intentionally, there are no telephones, televisions or Internet in our suite, either. “All of this lends itself to a pace of life that is defined not by the time or a TV show but instead by the sunrise, sunset and gathering to break bread and share in conversation and reverie,” Hew says. You see, David and his family developed and grew up on the island and they add their personal touch to every aspect of the property, from the rusticmeets-plush décor to the ample amenities to the tremendous sense of warmth inherent in the staff. David’s partner, Michael, brings a serious highbrow touch to the property’s culinary experience. “My parents designed and built Kamalame using indigenous materials and finishes. They 122

worked with the land around them and removed invasive exotic flora and replaced it with their indigenous counter parts,” Hew explains of the island’s metamorphosis. “They then peppered this with the niceties they liked to surround themselves with—think toes in the sand while drinking a delicious glass of wine. “The same applies to our decorating style in the sense that we blur the lines between the rough finishes and the refined ones. We bring the outdoors inside and the indoors outside,” he adds. “We have managed to amass a team of employees, an extended family if you will, to whom this is they’re home also. It is this relaxed island vibe and hospitality that ring true with most of our guests.”

So here we were, on this spellbinding sliver of heaven bursting with postcard-perfect beaches, hermit crabs, spiral-tailed lizards, coconuts, hummingbirds, parrotfish and lush landscapes. We had planned our trip to fall on a Saturday in sunny June for one of the island’s legendary lunches at the Great House. During these special reunions, locals from the neighboring islands and wanderlust types helicopter, seaplane or boat in for delicious eats, tangy libations (compliments of the sweetest couple, Will and Laura of Young ‘s Fine Wine) and dancing—emphasis on the “dancing” part. Honestly, I cannot recall the last time I danced until 1 am. It was so very freeing. The next morning, I savored a three-mile walk

atop the powdery white-sand beach and didn’t bump into a single soul. Not once. (This experience alone is reason enough to schedule a return trip.) Later on in the day, my girlfriends and I snorkeled right off the shore of Kamalame Cay, as it’s perched on the edge of the third-largest barrier reef in the world. Here, we spotted glowin-the-dark fish, oversized billowing sea fans and undulating stingrays on the boundless coral reef. Back on land, we sauntered along palm treelined paths, zipped around on golf carts (the Hews affectionately call them “sand chariots”), quaffed Minuty rosé and noshed on perfectly cooked conch fritters, coconut soup, spring rolls and key lime pie until our bellies were full. The banter flowed into the wee hours and we fell asleep to the sound of the waves lapping the shore while the salty air wafted through our bedroom. It’s the kind of place that rendering one to pinch themselves in hopes reality is not merely a quixotic dream. The three us quickly learned that paradise indeed exists on this earth—and its name is Kamalame Cay.

5 GUYS & A MOUNTAIN The game has changed— now there are way more than a handful in this devoted group—but the name remains the same. The boys are back with another ski adventure, and not a moment too soon to help you start planning. By Shayne Benowitz

clockwise from Top lefT: Guy stewart, frank cirisano, Jeff wolff, David Bloom, mark feldman, michael stern, eric Berger, scott kustan, Jory fine, Brian foster and rich levin.

Just before sunset, brian foster and his friends gathered at the peak of Keystone’s dercum Mountain, 11,640 feet above sea level, for a toast. independence bowl cascaded in white before them with the distant peaks of Mount edwards, Grays Peak and Glacier Mountain far off on the horizon. they’d ventured to Keystone for new terrain after a couple of days skiing breckenridge, and after another exhilarating day turning down the slopes, they stood at adventure Point with tequila and fireball in hand. they downed their shots with a “Cheers!” and then went tubing down the mountain at breakneck speeds for a different kind of après ski. this was the fourth annual Colorado ski trip foster planned with his friends Michael stern, david bloom, neil sklar and scott Kustan. these five guys from Miami, all in their 40s and married with kids around the same age, started the tradition as a response to the nostalgia they had skiing with their dads growing up. and so a guys’ getaway was born, with the first outing to breckenridge in 2011, followed by Park City, Vail, and back to breckenridge this february 2015. With each trip, more guys got in on the action, with their crew

growing to 15 to 20 guys. “it’s definitely more work with logistics,” says foster, who coordinated the itinerary. “We buy blocks of plane tickets, book condos, arrange ground transportation and make dinner reservations.” for their most recent trip, they opted for an eight-bedroom house on tomahawk Lane in breckenridge, just south of the ski lifts and the Main street of town. “it was really special,” says foster. the house came with a hot tub, pool table, ping-pong and foosball. Most evenings after dinner were spent back at the house playing poker. “it was like a giant frat house.” since, of course, the guys are no longer in college, foster says it’s important that the trip function efficiently as a long weekend so as not to be away from their families for too long. this year, they reserved thursday and tuesday as travel days with four full days of skiing and snowboarding on the mountain. from the charming Main street, filled with local boutiques, bars and restaurants lit up with holiday lights to the sprawling mountain with plenty of runs for beginners to experts, there’s a reason the guys returned to breckenridge this year. september 2015

TIPS FOR A SMOOTH-RUNNING TRIP TO BRECKENRIDGE As far as Foster’s concerned, it’s not important to stay at a ski-in/ ski-out resort in Breckenridge, thanks to the efficient and free shuttle service that the community provides. For their trip, the guys took full advantage of the Brown Route for getting from their rental house to the mountain and to dinner spots. “It’s a little less expensive than staying right in the center of town and it allowed us to get a bigger place,” Foster said.

Breck Sports is an ideal choice for renting equipment. They have various locations throughout Breckenridge and cater to large groups with special services. You can store your equipment onsite without having to lug it back to your hotel or condo after a day of skiing or snowboarding. With a base elevation of 9,600 feet and summits close to 13,000, it’s important to be mindful of altitude adjustment. The best tip is to drink a lot of water and ease into large meals and alcohol, especially for the first 48 hours.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN Breckenridge’s 3,000-acre mountain is spread across a series of peaks. Peaks 9 to 6 consist of mostly intermediate blue runs with green beginner slopes closer to the base and an impressive system of double black diamond expert bowls at the highest elevations. Peak 10, which is the farthest southwest, consist of all black diamond runs. “Breckenridge has some of the best skiing,” says Foster. “It’s easy to get back and forth on the mountain, and it’s great that it’s big.” For experts, Horseshoe Bowl at the top of Peak 8 has some of the steepest terrain in the area. You can also hike to the summit before dropping in at Snow White off the Imperial Chairlift. For blue skiers looking

AventurA MAgAzine

for a challenge, Peak 10’s Cimmaron Trail is one of Foster’s favorite black diamond runs. “It’s fast and steep with fun rollers, perfect for speed demons,” he says. Aside from their outing to Keystone, the guys stuck to Breckenridge and focused on a different peak each day, meeting for lunch at different spots along the mountain. Peak 9 Restaurant, accessible by Beaver Run and Mercury Super Chair, is the most central spot. Vista Haus at the top of Peak 8 is accessible by the Colorado Super Chair and boasts sweeping views of the Continental Divide. Sevens Restaurant at the base of Peak 7 makes for another great mid-day gathering spot.

With ski towns making a strong comeback, Park City and Canyons merge. By Shayne Benowitz

AventurA MAgAzine


CLOCKWISe FrOm AbOVe: Sundance at night is alive with activity; hot air balloons make a colorful display; the Sundance Film Festival draws visitors from all over every year. OppOSIte: Hiking and ski lifting are two of the most popular activities in the area.

From the star-splashed sundance Film Festival to hosting the 2002 Winter olympics, park city, utah, has long held a white-hot allure. now, it’s making headlines by merging with neighboring canyons in time for the 2015-16 ski season thanks to a $50 million investment in capital improvements from vail resorts. By physically connecting the two mountain resorts with an eightpassenger, high-speed two-way gondola, they will create the largest destination ski resort in the united states at more than 7,300 acres. to compare, the new park city will overtake Big sky, montana’s 5,750 acres and vail, colorado’s 5,289, yet fall short of canada’s Whistler/Blackcomb’s 8,171 acres. “residents of park city are alternately excited and scared about what vail [resorts] means to the community,” says sean Kelleher, developer of forthcoming echo spurs. “it will obviously be good

for business, but this year will be interesting to see how the new infrastructure develops.” With this merger and vail’s financial and marketing resources, park city is poised for additional visitors and real estate development. it’s also the first step in what may connect 18,000 acres of the Wasatch mountains and seven ski resorts, while also protecting the backcountry, for a more european-style ski experience. “With proper transportation, like rail service, it could create the ability to ski with a backpack and stay at a different hotel every night,” Kelleher says. park city real estate is still much less expensive than other mountain resorts like Jackson, aspen, sun valley and Breckenridge, according to Kelleher. “it’s a full-time community that happens to be a ski resort,” he says. “it’s popular amongst young retirees who still want to be active.” September 2015

With Echo Spur, Kelleher is marrying a sleek mountain-modern aesthetic with “smart home” technology to create an environmentally and economically efficient home. The homeowner will have the ability to control all of the house’s systems through an iPad application with smart software that, for instance, can monitor future weather conditions and turn on the radiant heat 148

automatically if a cold front is coming through. The home also features super-insulated frames, green roofs and water cisterns to capture snowmelt and irrigate the property. When making the argument for a green home, Kelleher explains, “Solar panels might cost $10,000, but if they reduce my electrical bill by $1,500 a year, that’s a 15 percent return on investment.”

COMPARED TO LIFT TICKETS PAYS FOR ITSELF IN AS LITTLE AS 5 DAYS. That means you could be skiing for free just a few days into your vacation. And with iconic mountain destinations like Vail, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge in Colorado and now Park City in Utah, you’ll have plenty of savings to explore the town.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: Shopping in the historic Main Street section, enjoying drinks with friends, and summertime art festivals are just a few of the ways to enjoy Park City.

While this technology has been used for the past decade, he predicts that we’ll soon see a boom in smart homes, now that the housing industry is finally rebounding after the 2007 credit crisis. “This will create a vast value proposition difference between existing homes and new ones,” he says, while adding, “And it’s not just for luxury, high-end homes. You’re seeing this in condo developments starting around $400,000.” Homes at Echo Spurs, located on Rossie Hill in Old Town, range in price from $2.7-$3.5 million, and the first two will be completed by the end of September with five more in the pipeline for now. With three- and four-bedroom models available, they start at about 2,700 square feet with an additional 1,200-square-feet of exterior living space. Kelleher anticipates Echo Spur will reflect Park City’s community with some living three to nine months and then renting for the rest of the year, while others will choose to live in the homes full-time. Located in the cultural and historic hub of Park City, Echo Spur is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, theaters and nightclubs. This is where you’ll find Zoom, Robert Redford’s chic, celeb-splashed American eatery on Main Street. The city also has services like Du Monde Gourmet Delivery to stock up the kitchen without the hassle of running to the grocery store. With Park City’s ski lift just a 10-minute walk away and Deer Valley’s lift a short drive, Echo Spur will be one of the newest developments to connect skiers and riders to the unprecedented 7,300-acre resort.

 Reasons We Love to Spring Ski in Vail By shayne Benowitz

Growing up in Southern California with an avid skier for a mom meant annual trips to Colorado’s mountain resorts, and we always went in the springtime. I never thought twice about the preference for spring skiing. The timing worked perfectly with our Spring Break from school, and for my mom it was all about warm temperatures and fresh powder on the slopes. Vail’s 5,000-acre mountain is one of the best in Colorado for spring skiing. Anne Sutherland Lynch, sales director of The Sebastian Vail resort, explains that the months of March and April have averaged more than 16 inches of snow over the last 20 years. That’s more than January and February. We spoke with her and a few other Vail experts to get the scoop on why it’s the perfect spring skiing destination.

Fresh powder and blue skies

on-mountain picnics and barbecues

the best time For après ski

the beauty of skiing vail in the springtime is comfortable skiing conditions with blue skies and more hours of daylight. to take advantage of this, the mountain even stays open later—until 5 pm. Since there are plenty of snowstorms throughout the spring, that means lots of fresh powder to carve. “Be ready to rise early for first turns when there is fresh snow,” says Alex Pasquariello, a travel journalist and avid vail skier.

there are seven scenic decks located across vail Mountain open for public use throughout the ski day perfect for picturesque picnics and barbecues in the spring. Some of the best picnic decks, according to vail resort’s Sara Lococo, are Windows Deck overlooking Sun Down Bowl or Jebbies Deck just off the Avanti trail above the epicMix racecourse. there are also gas barbecue grills free to use at Hawk’s nest Deck, Henry’s Hut and Belle’s Camp. the Sebastian vail resort hosts spring pig roasts on their Leonora Deck for a festive afternoon.

With longer days in the springtime, there’s nothing like soaking up the sun and a cocktail après ski. At the base of the mountain, head straight to tavern on the Square with an incredible outdoor patio. Other classic spots include Garfinkel’s, Red Lion, Los Amigos, Pepi’s, vendetta and the Sebastian’s Frost bar…the list goes on.

ADRENALINE Rush VETERAN MIAMI BROADCAsTER ADAM KuPERsTEIN FELL IN LOVE WITh sKIING AT AN EARLY AGE, BuT ABANDONED ThE sLOPEs FOR MORE ThAN A DECADE. By John Buchanan NBC6 news and sports anchorman Adam Kuperstein learned to ski as a young boy. Born in Pittsburgh, he took to the slopes regularly and enthusiastically until he was 14 and his family moved to Indiana. In 2002, after earning a degree in broadcast journalism from Syracuse University, he began his TV career in a pair of small markets in Ohio. “So I didn’t ski for 12 years,” he says, “first because I was living in Indiana, and then because when I first started working as a broadcaster in small markets, I couldn’t afford to go skiing.” Landing his first major market job in Miami in 2005, it was almost a decade before he rediscovered his passion for the sport. “I’m not a big risk taker,” he says. “I don’t go bungee jumping or skydiving. So for me, skiing is the right kind of adrenaline rush.”

adam kuperstein Q&a

Q: When did you start skiing?

Q: Where are your favorite ski spots?

a: “I was five years old. My parents and even my grandfather were into skiing. It was something my family did. We used to go to the Poconos every winter. And my parents would just throw us out on the slopes. My brother was only three when he started skiing. We’d get lessons from my uncle, and at that time, we had no fear. So that’s a great time to learn to ski.”

a: I like to go out west. For the last several years I’ve been going to Utah, because there are so many good mountains in the Park City area. I’ve been to Canyons, Park City Mountain and Deer Valley. I love Deer Valley. That’s where I ski the most, because it’s open only to skiers. It’s one of the few mountains in the country where snowboarding is not allowed. I have nothing against snowboarders, but I prefer to be on a mountain with just skiers.”

Q: hoW often do you go noW? a: “I try to go twice a year. It’s hard to go much more than that with my work schedule. And I have children that are one and two years old, so that also makes it hard to get away. But that means that when I can get away, I make it a ‘boys trip’ with a combination of my old friends from high school in Indianapolis and my new friends from Miami. We usually go in a group of six to eight guys.”

Q: What is it you enjoy so much about skiing? a: “It’s just the thrill of skiing. There’s really no other feeling like it. There’s nothing like the freedom of being out in nature, in the snow in beautiful surroundings, and you’re going down a mountain at high speed, but you’re in total control. I’m also a pretty competitive guy, so I also like being out there with friends and seeing who can go faster, who can turn tighter. There’s a competitiveness to it that I also like.”

Jim Couper: There Are No Other Everglades in the World The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU

WHERE:

SEpTEmbER 12, 2015-NoVEmbER 1, 2015

this exhibition features a new series of paintings by Jim Couper, professor emeritus in the Department of Art and Art History at Fiu and founding director of the Art Museum at Fiu. His paintings have no people or even any traces of people in them, only nature in its purest form. According to Couper, “it’s the experience of the wild landscape, not a picture of it, that interests me.” the everglades are the artist’s favorite place to paint, so of course he has witnessed their decline over the years and he’s got deep concerns for the preservation of what remains of them. these concerns are the conceptual basis for making this body of work, and the everglades provides an endless source of visual and spiritual inspiration.

J. Glackens: A Modernist in the Making NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale

SEpTEmbER 4, 2015-AuguST 31, 2016

According to New York Times art critic roberta Smith’s 2014 review of his exhibition at nSu, “William Glackens is among the most intriguing and underestimated participants in the first wave of 20th-century American modernism. That perception is confirmed by the enlightening and overdue, if still deficient, survey of his dappled canvases and dazzling drawings…it should be required viewing for anyone interested in the period.” in celebration of the 2015 return of works from nSu Art Museum’s collection that were part of this traveling exhibition, the museum is mounting a new exhibition to demonstrate the leading and important role the artist and his work played in the formulation and growth of modern art in America. EVENT:

Carlos Estevez: Celestial Traveler The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU

WHERE:

SEpTEmbER 12, 2015-JANuARy 3, 2016

“Celestial traveler” takes its name from one of Carlos estevez’s works of art that is included within the exhibition. The work, an exquisitely ornate kite, serves as a many-layered metaphor for the artist, his work and the exhibition and represents the connection between heaven and earth, the pursuit of dreams and the artist’s own spiritual and physical journey, which has been a source of inquiry throughout estevez’s artistic career. through his work, estevez both examines and interprets how we navigate the concrete and ethereal worlds that surround us. “Celestial traveler” addresses the complex and layered internal, spiritual, familial and public conversations that occur throughout the journey of life, as well as the dynamics that are elemental to them, sharing a personal yet universal, experience about human and spiritual connections. 164

red ginger It’s so Miami: it’s sleek, it’s glamorous, it’s got an onyx bar and coral walls, and though it is a respectable 3,300 square foot in size, feels cozy and intimate. And naturally, because it’s where it is, the patrons here are as beautiful as their surroundings. But the guys at Menin Hospitality are about more than just esthetics, and they have to be—the area south of Fifth on South Beach has become almost famous for the expensive (to design, build and dine at) restaurants that come and go like the Road Runner blazing through town. And Red Ginger delivers, with simple and fresh sushi with subtly nuanced touches, a robata grill with must-try items such as cauliflower with shiso butter, short rib with truffle miso and king crab with Thai basil and lemon butter. From the main menu, the filet is literally tender enough to be cut with a fork and melts in the mouth. Rather than parading out complicated science project-style desserts, you will finish off your repast with some cool, refreshing mochi. It’s an experience that begs to be had, so make your reservation sooner rather than later, and get there ahead of time to check out the bar; sip sake, a signature cocktail (we love the Pre-Nup) or something off the fabulous whiskey menu with its various offerings from decades gone by.

JOE’S OLD SCHOOL PIZZA Sometimes you just want an authentic taste of New Yawk pizza, which in these parts is often not easy to find. Or it wasn’t, until about a year ago when the bright red building housing Joe’s Old School Pizza opened its walk-up window on US 1. Here, you’ll none of the pretense South Florida is so well known for and all of the quality you hanker for in the form of hot, delicious, perfectly proportioned sauce-to-cheese pie (2 slices and a drink for $6!), the kind that needs no grated cheese or garlic powder embellishment to do its thing. Vito Scavo tosses pies in the back with the expertise of a master who’s been at it for decades, because he has. And while the pizza is the star, equal billing should be given to the meatball subs, eggplant parm, hot garlic knots awash in butter and fluffy zeppoli sprinkled with powdered sugar. Now, that’s Italian.

With more than three decades of experience as an entrepreneur and condo developer in Brazil and the U.S., Claudio Stivelman, CEO of S2 Development, is a creator—and he derives much satisfaction from seeing the results of his endeavors. In fact, he makes each of his developments seem like a musical research project before he puts down the finishing touches. “I like creation,” says Stivelman who was born in Rio de Janeiro and moved to Miami in 1991. “I study the area, read my notes, finish the production, then survey what I did. Like a maestro chooses his violinist, saxophonist and pianist, I coordinate all of my components, then wait for everyone to stand up and applaud.” With appropriate bravura, Stivelman has thus approached the development of O Residences in Bay Harbor Islands, a coloratura of boutique island living

with plenty of water features and a natural eco-atrium created by a green hanging garden trellis system. “I like the water, and Rio and Miami are the only places I have ever lived,” notes Stivelman. “When I discovered Bay Harbor Islands, I realized it is a forgotten jewel next to Bal Harbour, a wonderful place to live with all the joys of waterfront living.” Stivelman is excited about his project in Bay Harbor Islands, which is set to be completed by the end of 2017, and sees it as the type of residential property that will be popular in the future. He named it O Residences and decided on nine floors with 41 one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury waterfront residences measuring from 1,060-1,466-square feet with six units to a floor, and prices ranging from the $500,000s to upwards of $1 million. All units have glass-paneled terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. Kitchens and bathrooms are fitted with European cabinetry, quartz countertops and top-of-the-line fixtures and appliances; bathrooms feature marble floors. Each unit, regardless of size, is “Smart” tech ready so owners can communicate with the valet, security, or front desk at a click or touch of a button. “The interiors are minimalist chic,” says the developer. “Buyers so far are mainly Latins looking for a second home. We also have New Yorkers. All of the interested people find the property to be a wonderful address with a good location surrounded by beautiful parks and water.” In fact, the applause sounds the loudest when owners see the water features. There are waterfalls, a water deck, a private zero-edge Sunset Pool, a boomerangshaped infinity hot tub, cabanas and a boat dock. “I did a deal with a boat company so O Residences owners can make a reservation the day before and have a boat to use at no charge,” says Stivelman. “All they pay for is gasoline. I want them to have everything imaginable for perfect island living—everything that I love.” Claudio Stivelman, CEO There is also a 1,000-square-foot of S2 Development. fitness center with bayfront views, lockers, a steam room and a sauna.

Stivelman, who also developed Artech, a $210 million Miami waterfront loft community designed by Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott with a marina and the latest technology, is also excited about his other property-in-progress nearby. MUSE Sunny Isles Beach is S2’s joint venture with Property Markets Group and is aimed at buyers who prefer a small building. It’s a glass 50-story building also designed by Ott and will offer only 68 residences. MUSE will have only 68 residences in an enclave of tranquility directly on Sunny Isles Beach. “The building’s exterior will appear to melt seamlessly into the waves of the Atlantic Ocean,” says Stivelman. “Each residence, from 1,400-1,900 square feet, will be delivered furniture-ready, complete with interior design by Miami’s Antrobus + Ramirez.” The project should also be completed by the end of 2017, with prices for units going as high as $4 million each. “When steady developers with a track record venture into a good market, they know what to do,” says Stivelman of his current projects. “There is lots of opportunity now for experts. The fun is in the coordination—and of course, the finale.”
