THIS IS INDEED A PROUD moment in fashion. In addition to the greater inclusivity we’ve embraced throughout the industry, last month more than 30 fashion brands—many of them Bal Harbour brands—signed the Fashion Pact, a commitment to the protection of the environment. This is an important reminder of the tremendous responsibility we all have as consumers. Read more about this initiative in “Sustainable Style” on page 140. I often look to nature for inspiration, which is why we decided to take two of our fashion features outdoors. In “Enter the Enchanted Garden,” photographer and friend Stewart Shining captured models Claire B. and Maia Cotton at Flamingo Gardens, a wildlife sanctuary and tropical paradise less than 30 miles from Bal Harbour Shops. In a much diﬀerent natural setting, Victor Demarchelier explored the beloved New York Botanical Garden, where model Ava Smith stood out in an array of fall’s best looks—from a sumptuous velvet Balenciaga dress to a sculptural Alexander McQueen gown. On the cultural front, we share the voices of several generations of storytellers in this issue. We’re still saddened by the loss of the great Toni Morrison, and were so fortunate to speak with ﬁlmmaker and photographer Timothy Greenﬁeld-Sanders whose new documentary, “The Pieces I Am,” serves as a requiem to Morrison. Storytelling is also at the work of fashion ﬁgures Cipriana Quann and TK Wonder, whose blog Urban Bush Babes (follow them: @urbanbushbabes) is an inﬂuential online platform for inclusivity and representation. We also sit down with journalist Amy Fine Collins who gives us a sneak peek at her new book, “The International Best-Dressed List: The Oﬃcial Story” (Rizzoli). Be sure to visit Books & Books Bal Harbour Shops on February 11, when Fine Collins will be in-store for an author chat. Back in Miami—a city whose cultural pulse is continually rising— we spent an afternoon capturing eight stylish women in a tropical habitat of their own: Bal Harbour Shops. It was a fantastic day of fashion and fun, and a preview of the celebratory lunch we’ll be holding in October in partnership with Roger Vivier—who this year celebrates a decade at the Shops. And just as some of our beloved brands are marking milestones at BHS, we’re looking forward to the new openings this year, including Veronica Beard, Missoni, Le Labo and Restless Soul—which will soon be partnering with the Shops on a brand new Wellness Series. While we enjoy nothing more than sharing these Bal Harbour stories with you, we love seeing how you capture your own BHS story. Keep sharing your experiences with us @balharbourshops.

VICTOR DEMARCHELIER captured this issue’s cover story, “Of Heaven and Earth,” at the New York Botanical Garden. The son of legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier, Victor has made a name for himself as a lensman who straddles both ﬁne art and commercial photography, with clients including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Dior and Ralph Lauren, among others.

MOSHA LUNDSTRÖM HALBERT is a multidisciplinary fashion and travel journalist based in Miami and LA. She covers style and design for Vogue.com, The Business of Fashion and Cultured and in 2017 she co-founded Therma KŅta, an outerwear label inspired by her Nordic roots. In this issue, she chronicled her frequent pilgrimages back to her family’s native Iceland, and also helps fête Roger Vivier’s Bal Harbour birthday. “My adoration of Scandinavia is only matched by my obsession with beautiful shoes, so these were the perfect stories for me to report on.”
KATHRYN ROMEYN is a freelance journalist based in Bali and LA who writes about travel, design, wellness and adventure. This issue, she delves into the world of Le Labo, on the occasion of their Bal Harbour Shops debut. Romeyn also contributes to publications including AFAR, Robb Report, National Geographic Traveler, Architectural Digest, Brides and The Hollywood Reporter.
JESSICA IDARRAGA is the Digital Media Editor of Cultured and LALA, bringing print stories to life on Instagram and across the publications’ digital platforms. For this issue, she worked alongside photographer Stewart Shining and stylist Inge Fonteyne on the vision for “Enter the Enchanted Garden.” “The entire day on set was a dream,” she says. “The wildlife, including the ﬂamingos and peacocks, really added a surreal essence to the shoot.”
Paris-born hair stylist DIDIER MALIGE coiffed model Ava Smith’s locks into an edgy, romantic froth for Victor Demarchelier’s cover story, “Of Heaven and Earth.” He has worked alongside photographers including Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Bruce Weber and Inez & Vinoodh, among many others, and has worked closely with designer Hedi Slimane on campaigns and runway shows for Dior Homme, Saint Laurent and Celine.

CALLAN MALONE interviewed the fashion icon Amy Fine Collins about her forthcoming book, “The International Best-Dressed List: The Ofﬁcial Story.” “Speaking with Amy was such a treat,” she says. “I think we spent 20 minutes alone talking about the evolution of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s style. This book is going to be such a special totem of fashion culture.” Malone, who is based in Brooklyn, is also a stylist, and can occasionally be seen modeling for Sandy Liang.

“I was really excited to shoot at Flamingo Gardens, one of the oldest botanical gardens in South Florida, and even more so when I learned it’s also a wildlife sanctuary,” says photographer STEWART SHINING. “It was not only a beautiful location, but it was great to meet all of the people doing such meaningful work for animals.” Shining, who recently relocated to LA from New York, is a trustee of the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. His portraits and fashion photographs have appeared on scores of covers, from Rolling Stone to Vogue, and have been published in numerous books.
Photographer GESI SCHILLING is a Miami native who rarely ﬁnds herself documenting fellow localborn people in this city of transplants. However, her work in this issue provided some exception, as she captured eight of the city’s social media inﬂuencers— some native Miamians!—one balmy morning this summer at Bal Harbour Shops. “Learning from and about people is the greatest part of my work as a photographer. I was surrounded by eight conﬁdent, dedicated, excited, beautiful women on this assignment—it was an especially good day.”
New York City native AMANDA EBERSTEIN worked as an editor for Departures and Architectural Digest before moving to LA to take the helm as Editor-in-Chief of Angeleno magazine. She is currently the style editor of LALA and contributes to a variety of national publications, including The Wall Street Journal and The Hollywood Reporter. For this issue, Eberstein checked out the newly renovated Brunello Cucinelli boutique. “Although known for its cashmere, the legendary Italian brand also has a range of sumptuous linens and lighter materials ideal for the resort lifestyle,” she says. “Naturally, Bal Harbour is a perfect ﬁt.” 52 BAL HARBOUR

Those in the beauty biz know Tev Finger, the enigmatic founder of Luxury Brand Partners; those outside of it know its brands, including R+Co, Smith & Cult and IGK. We asked Finger to share his go-to products and what we should all have stocked in the beauty closet. As someone responsible for nurturing and launching some of the most celebrated beauty brands, who better than you to share a few of the season’s most anticipated offerings? Can you share a few must-have products? My go-to shampoo is R+Co Acid Wash, which is apple cider vinegar, and it’s incredible for dandruff. Overall, it replenishes the scalp and is great for scalp issues. I also use the acid wash as a body wash. V76 has amazing men’s products. The Shave Beard Oil and Hydrating Shampoo for the remaining hairs I have left are amazing and smell great. In Miami, with humidity being a constant threat, what products should we stock up on to beat the heat!? That’s a big concern for so many, and we have a few products that are great for dealing with humidity. The R+Co Moon Landing Anti-Humidity Spray coats the hair to calm frizz and effectively repel moisture. The IGK Swipe Up No-Frizz Smoothing Hair Wipes are unique, and with one swipe, hair static and frizz is instantly reduced.

Marking a Milestone Roger Vivier’s creative director, Gherardo Felloni, gives us a glimpse into the future of the house—which this year celebrates a decade at Bal Harbour Shops.

BY MOSHA LUNDSTRÖM HALBERT
“My goal is to accompany the maison as it evolves and to keep the innovative side of Roger Vivier alive. Our values, such as luxury, creativity and lightheartedness, are always in my mind when I design.”
THIS YEAR, ROGER VIVIER—one of the shoe world’s most storied maisons—marks a decade of bringing Parisian charm and exquisite craftsmanship to Bal Harbour Shops. And like the brand’s bejeweled creations, its history is punctuated with glistening, glamorous accomplishments. Monsieur Vivier began designing footwear in the 1930s for everyone from Folies Bergère performers to Christian Dior and even Queen Elizabeth II for her coronation in 1953. But his most iconic design remains the Belle Vivier, with its spiﬀy square toe and polished buckle making a memorable cinematic cameo on Catherine Deneuve in 1967’s Belle de Jour. Fast forward to present day, with creative director Gherardo Felloni determined to honor Vivier’s illustrious past while dialing into the au courant. To wit, for the latest campaign, he made a stylish short ﬁlm romp starring two accomplished, multi-generational actors: Susan Sarandon
Creative Director Gherardo Felloni joined the house last year, and has since reimagined the iconic Belle Vivier. He also introduced the bestselling sneaker, the Viv’ Run.
as an outré acting teacher and AnnaSophia Robb as her devoted pupil. Inspired by Italian director Antonio Pietrangeli’s 1965 cult ﬁlm Io La Conoscevo Bene (I Knew Her Well), the piece also co-stars the new Très Vivier pumps, matching Beau Vivier bag, cheeky Viv’ Utility hikers, and Broche Vivier bracelet. “My vision is to take inspiration from our rich heritage and extensive archives, yet reinterpret the past in a fresh way,” says the Tuscan-born designer. For the Fall/Winter collection, that translates to a new series of shoes that are a departure from previous seasons while still retaining the quintessentially Parisian spirit of Vivier. Wasting no time since his appointment in March 2018, Felloni has struck upon a sweet spot of classic with a deliriously playful twist in the new Courbette heel. This bicolor, chunky block design features a bold curved metallic interior, inspired by an archive style from 1960. BAL HARBOUR 79

“I love that there is no other accessories maison that has this kind of historical value and legacy.”
With an avid international following, evolving the brand to attract a new audience while still appealing to loyalists is a fashion tightrope. But for Felloni—whose CV includes footwear and accessory design posts at Miu Miu (where he dreamt up their feathery footwear confections in candy hues) and Christian Dior under John Galliano—following his instincts has proved fruitful. He mentions his foray into sneakers with the bestselling Viv’ Run as a risk that’s thankfully worked. “This was the maison’s ﬁrst sports shoe—it is comfortable and aerodynamic, but still shows the DNA of the maison through the buckle and the shape of the Choc heel,” he says, noting that seeing it worn on clients of all ages is immensely gratifying. “My goal is to accompany the maison as it evolves and to keep the innovative side of Roger Vivier alive. Our values, such as luxury, creativity and lightheartedness, are always in my mind when I design. It’s just a question of making the collection relevant and contemporary.” This approach is also evident in the way Felloni voraciously consumes culture—be it bingeing on the Netﬂix sci-ﬁ series Stranger Things or working in a vacuum of classical music. His layered 80 BAL HARBOUR
creative process also includes immersing himself in the RV treasure trove. “When I took this role, the most beautiful surprise was the archives. They are bigger and with so much more variety than I thought possible,” he says. “I love that there is no other accessories maison that has this kind of historical value and legacy.” While that might be up for debate depending on which shoe lover you speak to, there is no dispute that the brand’s ultra-feminine silhouettes and novelty fabrications continue to ﬁnd a happy home in South Florida. Felloni has his own theory as to why Vivier resonates so well here. “Miami is such a vibrant city that is closely related to the arts,” he says, noting that Monsieur Vivier himself studied sculpture and was an avid collector. “I am also an art enthusiast—I love architecture, I am very passionate about Art Deco and love antique jewelry,” adds the designer, who has a penchant for rings and necklaces and favors a theatrical sartorialism that makes him appear to have stepped out of a Toulouse-Lautrec painting. “This love for art has always inﬂuenced the maison and I think it must be a part of what makes Roger Vivier resonate in this city.”
Brunello Cucinelli’s reimagined boutique combines sleek sophistication with the brand’s traditional Italian soul. BY AMANDA EBERSTEIN IN 1985, BRUNELLO CUCINELLI founded his namesake clothing brand in Solomeo, Italy, a tiny medieval Umbrian village only half an hour from where he was born. Starting with simple hand-dyed cashmere sweaters, he has built the company over the last 40 years into an Italian luxury lifestyle empire that encompasses everything from men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories to décor such as pillows, blankets and tableware. And although he has opened boutiques in leading international cities such as New York, Paris, London and Rome, the brand still retains an intimate, small-town feel, with a commitment to craftsmanship and understated elegance that lends itself naturally to resort locales: Capri, St. Tropez, Aspen, St. Moritz—and Bal Harbour. “Bal Harbour is an iconic fashion destination that draws in people from all over the world,” says Cucinelli of his decision to open at the Shops in 2010. Now, the 4,000-square-foot space is reemerging after an extensive renovation with a sophisticated new look. “We drew our inspiration from the hamlet of Solomeo, paying close attention to details that allow the customer to breathe the spirit of the Cucinelli brand when stepping into the space,” Cucinelli says. “The design elevates the experience to reﬂect the beauty of Solomeo with that of the Bal Harbour community, both important hubs for the arts and culture in their own special way.” The expansive space is now awash in warm, earthy materials, with Italian travertine marble ﬂoors, subtle contemporary furnishings and a sleek wood ﬁreplace that anchors the center of the store. “The ﬁreplace is perhaps my favorite addition,” says Cucinelli. “I consider it to be a magical place at home where memory, concentration and an eternally young sense of wonder impact my soul like an energizing drive.” The warm and inviting atmosphere continues throughout, with details such as an onsite tailor and even a bar serving cocktails for VIPs and special events. All of this serves as the perfect canvas for the main attraction: the clothing. The neutral color scheme of the store perfectly complements the sumptuous oﬀerings on display—particularly the new Fall/Winter 2019 collection, with its simply chic monochrome white, beige, brown and black palette. “Its delicate nuances are enhanced using premium materials and exquisite craftsmanship in innovative ways,” Cucinelli says of his latest collection, which includes gorgeous handmade knitwear, classic tailored suits with unexpected twists and delicate use of the brand’s signature beaded Monilichain motif. In addition to the standard range of clothing and accessories that include stylish leather bags and footwear, the Bal Harbour boutique will have items from Brunello Cucinelli’s ﬁrst-ever children’s line, as well as a selection of exclusive pieces. Highlights for women include a fringed cashmere wrap cardigan, a gold leather pencil skirt and an asymmetrical silk halter top. Meanwhile, for men, Cucinelli would choose items such as a light cotton corduroy blazer and army green ﬂannel cargo pants. “The Bal Harbour client is more fashion-forward and looking for color and novelty styles,” Cucinelli explains. “They favor sport chic over more formal looks.” 82 BAL HARBOUR

A SARTORIAL SAVANT FOR THE AGES
Style icon Amy Fine Collins writes a comprehensive history of Vanity Fairâ€™s International Best-Dressed List, and the legends who never fall out of fashion. BY CALLAN MALONE PORTRAIT BY RONALD JAMES
BAL HARBOUR 87
“THERE’S A UNIVERSALITY to fashion. Everyone gets dressed every day,” Amy Fine Collins turns to me and says without pause. The longtime special correspondent to Vanity Fair is the current queen of the International Best-Dressed List, the style barometer created by Eleanor Lambert—arguably the fashion world’s ﬁrst inﬂuencer—in 1940. When Lambert handed her much lauded IBDL to Vanity Fair in 2002, Fine Collins—along with editors Graydon Carter and Aimée Bell, and contributing editor Reinaldo Herrera—were handed the reins. From its inception, Lambert’s brainchild has been the longstanding measure of style and originality. As fashion has evolved and Instagram superstars take on the style scene, the list has followed suit, celebrating the best and brightest across their ﬁelds of inﬂuence. This October, Fine Collins will release the ultimate reﬂection on the legendary list, “The International Best-Dressed List: The Oﬃcial Story” (Rizzoli). A collection of stories and secrets (it’s been said that Lambert was oﬀered up to $50,000 by list aspirants!), Collins mined the archives of her predecessor to illuminate the storied history of the coveted sartorial honor. “I was able to resurrect this story in a very lively way,” says Fine
Collins. “This material, year by year, decade by decade, relates to the current events of that time, how it pertained to the general zeitgeist and culture. You can get a snapshot of what the culture looked like one moment at a time just by studying a list, who was on it and how it changed.” So, how does one end up on the list? Beginning with a poll, voters select their favorites by category: royalty, sports, Hollywood, etc. Fine Collins and her team shore up the selections in what she describes as an electoral college after the popular vote. She explains the patterns and anomalies of people’s time on the list. “Nicole Kidman wears clothes very, very well. She’s been in the hall of fame for quite a long time.” I bring up the rise of the celebrity stylist in the late ‘90s, and ask how you determine the originality of someone’s style. “It’s not an easy task to sort that out, but the cream usually rises to the top,” says Fine Collins. “Every now and then, you have a very compatible, successful stylist/star relationship which expresses something about the celebrity—and not just the dress du jour. It’s a question of not just being visible and looking extraordinary, elegant or original, but also exercising inﬂuence in fashion.”
To coincide with the release of “The International Best-Dressed List: The Ofﬁcial Story,” Fine Collins will make a special appearance at Books & Books Bal Harbour on February 11, 2020.

Since its establishment in 1940, the International Best-Dressed List has included socialites, celebrities, athletes, royals and of late, inﬂuencers. Among those included are basketball star LeBron James (right), Academy Award winner and former model Anjelica Huston (far right) and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
A few of the sought-after fragrances from Le Labo’s 17-scent collection, including the recent addition, Tabac 28, which is exclusive to the brand’s Miami boutiques.
Senses Heightened Cult-favorite Le Labo opens its doors at Bal Harbour Shops, further elevating its esoteric brand of French-infused, New York City-born fragrances. BY KATHRYN ROMEYN “IN EVERY PERFUME WE CREATE, we leave a part of ourselves in the bottle,” says Fabrice Penot, one half of the dream team that conceived Le Labo, the luxury perfume brand that changed the fragrance game with its establishment in 2006. “I think people can feel that.” Lovers of the habit-forming scents would likely agree. The label’s proclivity for irreverence and shock, intention and soulfulness, and unstuﬀ y, innovative approach to the age-old practice of perfumery speak to what makes it unique. It’s why after 13 years, Le Labo’s legion of followers continues to expand, anxiously anticipating each new release. “The world has changed in the last 13 years,” says Penot. “Back then, there was very little choice in perfumery for someone who was tired of the marketing tricks played by the designer brands and wanted to wear a great, creative and highly qualitative perfume.” He and partner Eddie Roschi were so counter-commercial that their initial motto was “focus on creation and hope for business.” In fact, Le Labo launched without formal investor funding, without advertising and without hiding the ingredients in their meticulously sculpted unisex scents (think about that one for a minute—have you ever seen an ingredients list on a perfume bottle?). Bal Harbour’s new 960-square-foot boutique features the same industrial design that’s as signature to the brand as its New York City birthplace, the latter being chosen for practical purposes: the founders knew if the concept didn’t quickly succeed, it would quickly fail, and they would move on to create something else. “We wanted the quickness of what New York is all about and also the aesthetics and the aptitude to embrace novelty,” says Roschi. Their approach to creation is not unlike another New York industry, the art market: Roschi and 90 BAL HARBOUR
Penot treat perfumery as an art form and, like a gallery, collect works by the most creative, emotionally tuned-in artisans on the planet. “We are obsessed with moving people,” says Penot. “There is a mystical element to that, which ‘smart, reasonable business people’ in charge of traditional brands can’t really grasp; the resulted soul of the perfume is our competitive advantage.” Indeed, they also contribute their own compositions, like the Santal 26 candle Penot dreamed up in all its leathery, smoky goodness. It was the precursor to the iconic Santal 33, a 2011 fragrance virtually any American with a pulse point has sniﬀed at one time—perhaps in a hotel lobby, on a passerby or quite likely on themselves. The overwhelming popularity is a mixed bag of emotions for its creator—it has on occasion overshadowed beloved scents: think Rose 31 (which has at its core precious centifolia rose harvested each May in Grasse, France), Thé Noir 29, Another 13 and Bergamote 22. But it’s also opened doors, namely the sale of Le Labo to Estée Lauder, bringing the full library of sensorial aromas more exposure. Th at entire 17-scent Le Labo collection is on hand in the Bal Harbour boutique, including the Miami exclusive Tabac 28, a rich, sensual and smoldering collage of aromatic tobacco, cedar wood, oud and green cardamom that springs to mind a smooth Cuban cigar. The newest product extension, deodorant, joins hair, body and home goods. And true to its chic laboratory roots and focus on craft, each fragrance is freshly blended by hand in the shop and ﬁ nished with a personalized label bearing its new owner’s name. Says Penot, “Our labs are like an entertainment park for the nose, and the perfume you bring home is a souvenir.”

A Feminine Rebellion Beloved by fashion influencers, celebrities and working women alike, Zimmermann is an international It label that just wants to make clothes women like to wear. BY CAIT MUNRO

BAL HARBOUR 93
THERE’S A CERTAIN KIND of woman for whom ultrafeminine dressing embodies strength and even rebellion. In decades past, professional women needing to be taken seriously had to dress the part. These days, you’re just as likely to ﬁnd entrepreneurs, art professionals and even lawyers who eschew severe suits and dark color palettes in favor of ﬂorals, lace and pastels. Australian label Zimmermann is a brand created with these women in mind. “She is feminine, optimistic and likes to have fun with fashion,” co-founder Nicky Zimmermann, who works on the label with her sister Simone, says of her muses. “She enjoys traveling and experiencing the world and having a great time along the way.” Alexandra Fanning, a New York art publicist originally from Sydney, wore Zimmermann for her wedding a few years ago. “As soon as I slipped it on I felt so graceful and feminine; I felt powerful, poised and reﬁned,” she recalls. Zimmermann launched in 1991 and has since been among a small group of labels, including Ellery and Dion Lee, to bring a distinctively Aussie aesthetic to the high fashion world. The brand operates an atelier in New York and shows at New York Fashion Week, but hasn’t lost the relaxed, bohemian, distinctively Sydney sensibility that somehow makes even their most feminine, frothy confections seem wearable. “The Zimmermann brand exudes elegance, conﬁdence and playfulness, which I think reﬂects the Australian fashion scene—trendy and high-fashion, yet demure,” Fanning explains. The brand’s rise to fame happened over the course of many years, growing organically from a simple stand at a 94 BAL HARBOUR

local market to the international It label it is today. And yet, Zimmermann says, “There’s never been any big plan, we’ve just taken things as they come.” On a roster of fashion inﬂuencers and Hollywood starlets, some of the brand’s most committed fans include Blake Lively, Kate Middleton, Laura Dern and model Jessica Hart, though Zimmermann says, “Just seeing a stylish woman on the street who might style something of ours in an unexpected way is amazing.” Elizabeth Kurpis, a fashion lawyer and New York party ﬁxture, praises the brand for collections that are “boldly feminine, relaxed yet polished, have a hint of trend, but are far from being overdone. For me, this versatility manages to harness both the power and grace of being a woman, mother and young entrepreneur.” As for Zimmermann’s inspiration, she says she pulls it from everywhere, including the history books. The Fall 2019 collection, which is in stores now, was inspired by Nancy Wake, an Australian woman who became a spy during World War II. It balances the requisite airy dresses and ﬂouncy ruﬄes by incorporating more structured pieces like trenches, trousers and wide leather belts cinched at the waist. It’s perfect for fall, bringing to mind Hitchcock heroines and safari adventurers. “Wake’s story really set oﬀ my imagination. She was a mysterious and brave woman, a chameleon who moved around in secrecy, strong and resilient, always so evasive so as never to be caught,” Zimmermann explains. “I loved the idea of such a feminine, skillful and selﬂess ﬁgure—a woman who helped people in the most diﬃcult of circumstances.”

ART FAIRS CAN BE A DAUNTING EXPERIENCE. Between cocktail parties and booth hopping, scintillating conversations with artists and the arduous task of ﬁnding that perfect piece, the experience can leave one feeling equal parts inspired and breathless. A new respite is now underway from Audemars Piguet. In partnership with Fernando Mastrangelo—a New York-based designer blending form and function in a series of sculptural design objects cast from organic materials—the watchmaker presents Th e Vallée, a serene hideaway that’s popping up at Art Basel Miami Beach in December. Inspired by the idyllic Vallée de Joux, the Swiss capital of haute horlogerie and the brand’s home, the immersive lounge (accessible only by VIP cardholders) will transport guests into the cradle of the Jura Mountains while oﬀering a sneak peek of the collection that inspired the project, Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet. “I felt like I won the sweepstakes,” says Mastrangelo of his selection for the project. His design studio has long challenged the boundaries of his chosen materials, probing how they might unravel a story or further a conversation. The partnership with Audemars Piguet was just the right ﬁt. “In my studio, we’re always trying to master our materials and that felt like a direct parallel for Audemars Piguet and its culture,” explains Mastrangelo. Code 11.59 is the newest collection from Audemars Piguet and highlights the watchmaker’s long history of fusing the traditional with the avant-garde. Defying the brand’s customary octagonal watch faces, the Code 11.59 series embeds an octagonal middlecase within a round case, creating a sleek, inﬁnite circumference. With a directive to highlight this singular new collection, Mastrangelo took a jaunt to the Vallée de Joux. Over the course of several days, he became intimate with the watchmaker’s expansive atelier, observing how each timepiece was built while acquainting himself with the brand’s history and the surrounding, dramatic landscape. “I wanted to remake the experience that’s inherent to this collection,” says Mastrangelo. A stunning sand, silica, salt and limestone strata wall forms the backdrop of a watchmaker’s desk while display cases emulate the Vallée de Joux’s quiet spruce forest. Rounded seating implores guests to contemplate the gradient colors of a Swiss sunset over the Jura Mountains, an experience Mastrangelo built by capturing the natural light of the Vallée and projecting it onto LED screens in the lounge. With a two-year partnership with Audemars Piguet underway, Mastrangelo marvels at the synergy between art and watchmaking. “The art of watchmaking requires an innate ability to make a watch more and more complex,” he says. “When you purchase an Audemars Piguet, you connect with talented people who are able to translate their vision in the same way an artist might.” 98 BAL HARBOUR

Fernando Mastrangelo WHICH IS YOUR GO-TO MENSWEAR STORE IN BAL HARBOUR SHOPS? Rag & Bone pretty much has me covered. I like when you can’t always tell who someone is wearing, but you recognize that it’s well-made and just on-trend enough. SPEAKING OF TRENDS, WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR THIS FALL? I’m excited about so much of the fashion that mixes streetwear with high-end craftsmanship: brands like Heron Preston, Oﬀ-White and anyone mixing genres with high craft. WHAT ABOUT THE BAL HARBOUR SHOPS VIBE DO YOU CONNECT WITH? That’s easy: the tropical flavor is what brings me back to Miami every time. The Shops defi nitely captures that, and then elevates it in its own way. WE’VE NOTICED YOU HAVE A PENCHANT FOR SHADES. DO YOU HAVE A BRAND THAT YOU’RE PARTICULARLY LOYAL TO? Well, to be honest, I’m most inclined to purchase vintage eyewear. But when it comes to something new, there are a few pairs of aviators from Linda Farrow that have caught my eye lately. —Tali Minor

“IT’S BETTER TO BE INTERESTING than to be beautiful,” Maye Musk astutely writes in her new book “A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty, and Success” (Viking Life). Well, what if you’re both? The Canadian-South African model struggled through poverty to raise three children on her own (you may have heard of son, Elon Musk), earned two master’s degrees and launched a successful dietetic practice in three countries, appeared in Beyoncé’s “Haunted” video and is the oldest spokesmodel for CoverGirl at age 71. “One reason I’m not afraid of aging is that every decade of my life has been better than the last,” the LA resident and active public speaker declares in her memoir, an absorbing read of her highs and lows that’s punctuated with practical advice. Musk opens up about the plans she’s made, motherhood and her hotter-thanever modeling career. What inspired your book’s title, “A Woman Makes a Plan”? This comes from the Afrikaans saying, “‘n boer maak ‘n plan.’” It means a farmer makes a plan if things go wrong. And that’s what I’ve done. Too often, I was in a bad situation and waited too long to make a change. Throughout your book, one is struck not only by your resiliency but your sense of humor. Were these two qualities always ingrained in you? I do what is right. When people are dishonest, I will defend myself and others. I also have a great sense of humor. I’ve said I want my gravestone to read, “She was funny.”

You wrote that your greatest achievement is your children [technology entrepreneur Elon, 48, philanthropist and restaurateur Kimbal, 46, and ﬁlmmaker Tosca, 45]. Can you talk about that bond? I am very fortunate to have three children who were considerate of my work hours, were independent and had a great sense of humor. What is special about our relationship is that we laugh a lot. What was your mothering style? It’s similar to my parents who worked hard and supported us in the diﬀerent directions we all chose to go. I did the same. During my childhood, we lived in a happy home. I created a happy home when I got divorced. There were moments of poverty in your life when you wore secondhand clothes and your kids ate a lot of peanut butter sandwiches and bean soup. You write, “So what? We loved one another. We had a lot of fun together. That’s what matters.” How did you stay grounded? I certainly didn’t need painful situations to shape me, and don’t recommend my situation to anyone. My parents went through the Great Depression in Canada, so I was and am always frugal. That helped me through my post-divorce years. How have each of your children inspired you? My children are more intelligent and more successful than I will ever be. I learn from them every day. You refer to Elon as “the encyclopedia.” Did you know as a child that he would be creating something groundbreaking like Tesla and SpaceX? When you have a super intelligent child, you don’t know if they will hide in the basement on their computer or put their knowledge to the good of the world. He decided the latter. I am very happy and very proud about that. Would you ever accompany him on a trip to Mars? I don’t know if grandmothers will be on the early trips. I could even be a greatgrandmother by then. Your book is ﬁlled with gems like “Silver is the new blonde,” “You don’t have to be stylish to dress well. You just need a stylish friend,” and “If you taste something and it’s not delicious, leave it.” What do you hope to accomplish with your book? I’d like women to have more conﬁdence, study their areas of expertise and share them, dress better, feel good and eat well to stay in good health. You write: “Women don’t have to slow down as they age.” What are the beneﬁts of aging? When something terrible or tragic happens, you’ve already been through that, and you know you will come out OK. I just love that. How do you look amazing and continue to model at age 71? There is no secret. I have to eat well to maintain a healthy weight. That is very hard. I have to avoid temptation all the time, or rather, most of the time. Health is wealth. Tell us about your diet? I plan my meals and snacks for good energy. I follow a ﬂexitarian diet and often have a very light dinner to maintain my weight and energy. 102 BAL HARBOUR
“When you have a super intelligent child, you don’t know if they will hide in the basement on their computer or put their knowledge to the good of the world. He decided the latter. I am very happy and very proud about that.” You recount your weight battles in your book. How do you stay on track? Every time you slip into past behaviors, you are disappointed in yourself. I am tired of being disappointed in myself. I will now slip into bad behavior for one meal, then eat perfectly for the next three days. That gives me back my conﬁdence. How would you describe your personal style? My personal style is casual and comfortable. Are you proud to have paved the way for more inclusivity in the modeling industry? I am happy to represent older women. I didn’t aim to be the forerunner, but that’s what I’m called. Yay! You have two master’s degrees and started a private dietetic practice in eight cities in three countries. Most important moment in your nutrition career? My most important moment was when I won the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award [from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics] in the US, before I became an American citizen. What’s next for you? So much is happening. I get excited with every speaking engagement, modeling job and travel experience. Stay tuned… #JustGettingStarted #ItsGreatToBe71

THE LAST WORD Documentary filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders reflects on the life and legacy of his most recent subject, Toni Morrison. BY SIOBHAN MORRISSEY
MIAMI NATIVE Timothy Greenﬁeld-Sanders uses ﬁlm to give voice to the power of the written word. His documentary, Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am, is an homage to the beloved author, released just months before Morrison’s death. The documentary includes interviews spanning ﬁve decades of the acclaimed author’s life and serves, at least artistically, as her last word. The ﬁrst woman of color to receive a Nobel Prize—in any category—Morrison reveals in the ﬁlm how her grandfather often bragged about having read the Bible, even though it was illegal in his lifetime to read. That act of deﬁance inspired in Morrison a reverence for writing. “Ultimately,” she said in the documentary, “I knew that words have power.” Creating a documentary requires a tremendous investment of time and both physical and psychic energy, a compulsion of sorts. What compelled you to focus on Toni Morrison? Toni Morrison and I ﬁrst met in 1981, 38 years ago. I shot many portraits of her for books and press, but most importantly, I was inspired by her work. My series on identity… starting with The Black List: Volume 1, came about from an idea that Toni proposed to me. As she moved into her late 80s, there was deﬁnitely a need for a ﬁlm about her life. Would you agree with A.O. Scott’s assessment that your ﬁlm is “less a biography than an extended essay”—which by the way, he maintains, makes it more powerful? It’s a valid and thoughtful description. The ﬁlm certainly has much biography but the documentary also takes you places and into other emotional spaces that traditional biographies often don’t. When focusing on someone famous, the interviewer has a lot of background material available. The trick sometimes is to provide new insight. What information or anecdotes were you able to extract that were unique to your project? What is special in Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is that Toni tells her story. She guides the narrative. Your documentary was released within months of Morrison’s death. Did you know at the time that your work would serve, at least artistically, as her last word? We interviewed Toni over two years ago for the ﬁlm. She was not involved in the ﬁlmmaking process, beyond those times with her. We were so grateful for the time she gave us, which was truly magical… sitting on her dock with the river moving by. We are all still grieving her loss.

of him, all the diﬀerent periods of his life in a linear fashion. In life, Toni Morrison was also a towering presence. Because your documentary took place during the last phase of her life, did you also get a more complete sense of Toni Morrison as an author and her place in history? What’s incredibly special about the ﬁlm is that we have interview material with Toni from ﬁve decades of her life. Perhaps the sessions we shot with her, since they are her last on ﬁlm, are even a more important part of her legacy now. I read last week an article that described our ﬁlm as, “an elegy to her.” I’m so grateful that we had this time with Toni and were able to complete the ﬁlm during her lifetime. The author was a black woman, writing about the black experience. Please tell our readers what insight you, as a white man, bring to this documentary. I try to always be aware of “the white gaze.” Many people brought diverse backgrounds and ideas to the ﬁlm: Mickalene Thomas’s remarkable opening montage, Kathryn Bostic’s extraordinary musical score, Sandra Guzmán’s thoughtful interviews and Johanna Giebelhaus’s stunning editing all added depth and texture to Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. Filmmaker, photographer, book author: and you excel in all three ﬁelds, with works in the Museum of Modern Art and the National Portrait Gallery and a Grammy Award for your feature ﬁlm on Lou Reed. How do you keep focused while being pulled in so many diﬀerent directions? My years of portraiture help so much with the visuals of ﬁlmmaking. Certainly there are times when I feel overwhelmed by all I am doing… but ultimately I enjoy the work and I think that is the secret to being able to juggle it all. You were born in Miami Beach and educated at Ransom Everglades, Class of ‘70, where you were honored two years ago for your distinguished service to the community. South Florida, in particular Miami and Miami Beach, is becoming quite the incubator for ﬁlm, with an Oscar for Moonlight, the recent release of The Last Resort and your proliﬁc genius. How much of a role did geography play in your development as an artist and author? I grew up in Miami in a house ﬁlled with art. My mother started in 1950, in Miami, the ﬁrst integrated school for music, art and dance in the South, the Fine Arts Conservatory. The Miami that I knew growing up was special and inspirational. This immersion in the arts led me to New York for college at Columbia University and a life-long appreciation of the value of the arts.

reﬂection,” she says. “Most people don’t think of my work as ﬁgurative, because there are no ‘ﬁgures’ in it, but I think of it as thoroughly ﬁgurative. Rather than depicting one in a representative manner, you are the ﬁgure, prompted by the work to always ﬁnd yourself in the landscape.” In Fire (America) 5, which refers to a violently divided country, “the essential component of renewal and redemption… hinges on ﬁnding yourself in the landscape.” To perceive landscape as something one can be inside is, says Fernández, crucial to understanding her practice, and to “deﬁning who you are in relation to where you are—not just what’s in front of your eyes, but the history of human beings, of power and the lack of it. An ‘innocuous landscape’ is a very Western point of view—humans dominating the landscape,” she adds. “But even our ideas about what places are—names, borders—are powerful tools to control how we think of ourselves in relation to the land. When I make the work, there’s never a choosing between this experiential, sensual thing, and sociopolitical references. They’re very much inherent in each other.” Fernández doesn’t cajole or direct you here. The prompting, the call to participate, “is very quiet and very subtle,” she says. “What’s happening, when it does happen, is on an intimate, viewer-driven scale, and that means it can be very powerful. It’s not always visible.” In the end, it’s up to the viewer: their internal experience, their own interpretation to mull over, whether they see the work multiple times or never again. “I’ve often talked about the viewer being both spectator and complicit performer. That kind of engagement is slow or quiet—enough for you to recall it after the work’s no longer in front of you.” “Teresita Fernández: Elemental” is on view at the Pérez Art Museum Miami from October 18, 2019 through February 9, 2020.

THE ALLEGORIES ABOUT FIRE are multifaceted: ﬂames destroy, make space, cleanse and renew—consider the Phoenix, the regenerating bird from Greek mythology that rises from the ashes of its former incarnation. For “Teresita Fernández: Elemental,” an exhibition opening in October at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Fernández has dedicated an entire gallery to ﬁre. “In considering the title of the show, ‘elemental’ means the powers of nature—atmospheric, environmental,” she explains. “But it also means essential—the raw, underlying, hidden core of something, which is more elusive.” Co-curated by Franklin Sirmans, director of the PAMM and Amada Cruz, former director of the Phoenix Art Museum (where the show will travel in 2020) and newly named director of the Seattle Art Museum, “Elemental” is the towering artist’s ﬁrst mid-career survey, a sweeping view of her work from the mid-90s to the present—an oeuvre that is, at once, immersive and intimate. Fernández’s public installations and smaller-scale pieces—landscapes, sculptures—have a rapturous quality, manipulating the light or evoking the natural world and, simultaneously, the insular feeling of looking within. Imagine looking out a window, but also daydreaming. Born in 1968 in Miami to Cuban parents and based in New York— the artist has spent time in Japan, the Yucatán and elsewhere, and considers each fundamental to who she’s become—Fernández’s career is sprawling: in 2011, she was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and, in 2016, partnered with the Ford Foundation to create and direct the U.S. Latinx Futures Symposium. She avoids pointing to any one perspective in her practice; we’re discussing Fire (America) 5 (2017), a glazed ceramic landscape in which a ﬁre has engulfed an evening’s blackness, because of its nearendless meanings. “The glossy surface makes it so that you see your own

MAY WE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE “The Art of Noticing” author Rob Walker gives us an insider’s view of his insightful new book, and a few ways that we can be more present in our daily lives.
134 BAL HARBOUR
“Noticing is just shorthand for being present in the moment: really seeing the environment you’re in, listening to others, engaging with your world instead of drifting through it and picking up on what everybody else overlooked or took for granted.” WE ALL KNOW HOW our digital, always-on, constant FOMO world can be not just distracting but exhausting. Sometimes we all just need a break to focus on what’s important to us as individuals. That’s why I wrote a book called “The Art of Noticing,” a series of 131 prompts, provocations, games and exercises you can add to your day-to-day life to build up your attention muscles. The way I see it, noticing is just shorthand for being present in the moment: really seeing the environment you’re in, listening to others, engaging with your world instead of drifting through it and picking up on what everybody else overlooked or took for granted. I designed the book to be approachable: You can pick and choose easy-to-engage ideas, or work your way toward really committed attention-building projects. Here are a few personal favorites: Look Like A Child. Author and critic John Berger’s famous Ways of Seeing documentary series and book oﬀered a sophisticated treatise on perception. But one of Berger’s insights was that the most honest, no-nonsense observers of our world are often children. They see novelty and wonder in what we consider familiar; they
notice things we’ve learned to ignore. Try to channel this mode of engaging with the world: Imagine you haven’t “seen it all before,” and try to see as a child would. And if you have access to a child— get her help! Just try to pay attention to what she’s paying attention to, and appreciate why she’s paying attention to it. Don’t Photograph. Draw. Armed with smartphones, we can document anything now. See it, snap it, done. The problem is that this is so ﬂeeting it doesn’t stick—it’s a substitute for attention, “noticing lite.” Try drawing instead. Don’t worry if you “can’t draw.” You don’t have to show anyone. Just go through the process of sketching something you ﬁnd interesting. The idea goes back at least to Victorian-era critic John Ruskin, who argued that a “sketcher” perceives better than the non-sketcher. Get a cheap notebook, make one drawing on the ﬁrst page. Then another. Then ﬁll the notebook. Some of the prompts in the book are easier, some are harder. But this should get you started. The idea is to care about what you pay attention to, and pay attention to what you really care about. BAL HARBOUR 135
Natural Matters Taking the fashion world by storm, TK Wonder and Cipriana Quann are championing inclusivity and representation. BY JULIE BAUMGARDNER PORTRAIT BY TERRY GATES
“THE HEART OF WHO WE ARE is storytelling,” says Cipriana Quann, who, alongside her twin sister, TK Wonder, have captured the attention of the fashion world for their tremendous style. The two were dubbed by The New York Times as “redeﬁning what it means to be a fashion icon.” But they’re also defying the status quo in favor of true statement-making. “We all know women come in all shapes and sizes and that is a beautiful thing,” says Wonder. “However, you wouldn’t know it because most of the time you see the opposite,” which is why the sisters have put representation front-and-center to their raison d’être. This manifests in their inspiring social media posts or sitting front row at fashion shows. “We want to inﬂuence people to inﬂuence themselves, in taking action to reconstruct the future towards a continuous diverse and inclusive industry,” says Cipriana. Wonder and Cipriana are well into a personal journey of self-acceptance that has aided a national movement amongst women of color to reject wrongful—and racially biased—perceptions of their natural textures. Urban Bush Babes, their online hair publication that’s now a socially engaged community of hundreds of thousands, became a hub for knowledge and insight as much as tips and treatments. “When I co-founded UBB in 2011, a majority of the content was less about tutorials and the aesthetics of natural hair and more about the science and psychology of it,” explains Cipriana. “The uniting core of the site is to support, encourage and highlight the multifaceted lives of women of color; I wanted to celebrate diﬀerence as the norm, ‘imperfections’ as perfections, beauty beyond aesthetics.” Unsurprisingly, the recent legislation banning hair discrimination has been a topic of interest for the sisters. “This year, California and New York banned discrimination towards natural hair at the work place. Sounds like the title of an Onion article,” writes Wonder on her blog. It’s true: in New York state, the Human Rights Law now includes a clause protecting “traits historically associated with race, including, but not limited to, hair texture and protective hairstyles.” The idea that hair is anything but natural may seem absurd, but as long as Eurocentric standards of beauty have dominated, coarse and curly strands have been demonized. As Cipriana says, “Like Prince’s song ‘Party Like It’s 1999,’ TK and I have been discussing political and social issues since 1999.” The site has also been a platform for these polymathic sisters to create in the realms of fashion, art, music and all things creative. “I am a writer ﬁrst and foremost who loves music, fashion, books, travel, great food,” says Wonder, “and advocacy work.” Essential to the sisters’ platform is social change. “I love fashion and beauty but TK and I are also interested in social, political and environmental issues,” says Cipriana. “I want my ‘followers’ to know what I care about and the changes I am trying to make on my end.” But don’t reduce their tresses to a mere political prop. “The only way I would view my afro as being political is if it grew a pair of lips and discussed politics,” adds Wonder. 136 BAL HARBOUR

“I have to be in nature. It took me a while to figure that out, but I just feel more alive and awake, and more inspired when I have that connection.”
Garden Girl, one of Rodgers’s recent paintings, exempliﬁes the impressionistic nature of her work.
ON ANY GIVEN DAY, artist and fashion illustrator Katie Rodgers keeps a few essentials close at hand. “I love to have pastels with me all the time,” says the artist over the phone from her Manhattan studio. “Watercolors and gouache are my main things I go to. Then a good pencil. And paper is super important.” With this handful of tools, and the occasional addition of glitter, sequins and gold foil, she composes impressionistic scenes that are delicate and ﬂoral, feminine and full of motion, where aqueous brushstrokes and loose, gestural lines show the application of the artist’s hand. “Nowadays everything is so digital,” Rodgers says, making the human touch a hot commodity. Over the years, her work, under the name @PaperFashion, has been sought by luxury brands—the likes of Cartier, Valentino and many others have eagerly applied her visions to their campaigns, packaging design and displays. Last fall, when the French candleand scent-makers of Diptyque commissioned her to decorate the interior of their West Village boutique, she transformed the space into a botanical wonderland, ﬁlled ﬂoor-to-ceiling with her imagery alongside live ﬂorals and other plant life, the foundational ingredients in a perfumer’s lab. @PaperFashion’s success initially caught Rodgers by surprise. Its origins trace back to 2009, when she launched a blog of the same name, a place to post watercolor sketches made in her free time while maintaining her day job as an apparel designer at Reebok. Painting had been a hobby since age seven, when she received her ﬁrst watercolor palette. “I had no intention of it becoming a business,” she says, until her work started to
catch the attention of major brands. That same year, Coach approached her to illustrate its holiday campaign, and soon even larger commissions followed: a print for a limited-edition Lacoste bag, a holiday card for Swarovski, and characters for an animated children’s story by Alicia Keys. Suddenly, her hobby became her full-time job. Nature has been a recurring theme and a constant source of inspiration for the artist, who grew up with chickens in the Georgia countryside. These days as a New Yorker, she makes it a point to visit Central Park on a regular basis, and to maintain the small garden on the outdoor terrace of her studio complete with dahlias, honeysuckles, and their requisite companions: ladybugs, caterpillars, butterﬂies. “I have to be in nature,” she says. “It took me a while to ﬁgure that out, but I just feel more alive and awake, and more inspired when I have that connection.” This year, Rodgers has been focused less on brand collaborations and more on personal projects. One is a book of her own, the details of which are still under wraps, and another is her recently launched line of Paper Fashion art supplies. Her watercolor compacts resemble those of eyeshadow palettes, ﬁlled with shades that pop, sparkle and shimmer. The resemblance to cosmetics, she says, makes paint more approachable and accessible. “It’s all about trying new things, playing with diﬀerent materials and having fun with it, instead of taking everything so seriously,” she says, especially to anyone outside of a ﬁne art background. “When it comes to thinking creatively, art supplies can help fuel that.” BAL HARBOUR 139
Sustainable Style More than 30 fashion companies have signed a pact to battle climate change. Is the tide finally turning for the notoriously wasteful industry? BY CAIT MUNRO
Desert Dancer in the Sahara, by Katie Rodgers
FASHION ISN’T USUALLY a hot topic at the annual G7 summit, but this year, a new initiative called The Fashion Pact has brought it to the forefront of talks about climate change. It’s an unprecedented agreement by some of the biggest names in the industry—including Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nordstrom, Nike and H&M—to reduce waste and environmental impact. Announced at the summit in Biarritz, France on August 23 by Kering Chairman and CEO François-Henri Pinault and French President Emmanuel Macron, the pact is unprecedented in scale and size. But will it be enough? The Fashion Pact’s primary goals are threefold: to reduce global warming by achieving zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; to restore biodiversity, with a focus on restoring ecosystems and protecting endangered species; and preserving the oceans, largely by reducing the presence of single-use plastics. Other signatories include Burberry, Hermès, Moncler and Ralph Lauren. For many companies, this will mean a dramatic shift in everything from manufacturing to shipping practices. Labels like Stella McCartney have long led the charge on sustainability issues, but others, and the industry as a whole, have a ways to go. According to a 2016 report by the 140 BAL HARBOUR
United Nations, the global fashion industry is responsible for 10 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions and 20 percent of all wasted water. “The Fashion Pact will be for our Group not the beginning of the sustainability journey but the continuation of a commitment initiated by our Founder Ermenegildo Zegna more than a century ago. That’s our legacy and our responsibility,” explains Gildo Zegna, CEO of the eponymous Italian fashion house, which has signed the pact. The pact has been in the works since April, and going forward, signatories hope to enlist 20 percent of the global fashion industry in the eﬀort. Many observers, however, can’t help but wonder how exactly the companies plan to achieve their lofty goals, and even whether the Pact goes far enough. A follow-up meeting during which brands will make more speciﬁc pledges has been scheduled for October. Acknowledging that they don’t yet have all the details hammered out, Chanel says that the brand has “had goals in place for many years to reduce its own environmental footprint.” “These goals are key to its transformation strategy, and the House has stepped up its investments in this area,” a spokesperson for the brand adds.

“Work has moved me to New York, Miami and LA, but my heart’s internal compass continues to point north. So much so that one New Year’s Eve, I was married under ReykjavIk’s legendary fIreworks.”
MY MOTHER’S FAMILY is from Iceland and when I ﬁrst visited, it was neither a hotspot nor a hub that felt connected to the rest of the world. But, lured by a desire to escape, write, swim and connect with my roots, in 2006 I decided to live there for a stint. Since then, work has moved me to New York, Miami and LA, but my heart’s internal compass continues to point north. So much so that one recent New Year’s Eve, I was married under Reykjavík’s legendary ﬁreworks. You see, Iceland and I are in a committed long-distance relationship. Increasingly these days, many fantasize about visiting this bucket-list destination. Indeed, no scroll through Instagram seems complete without a majestic northern lights snap, or odes to Icelandic horses, dramatic fjords and waterfalls galore. But to say that Iceland is having a moment doesn’t do justice to how far the tiny country (population: 360,390) has come, with new openings, opportunities and experiences luring me back every few months. It helps that it is also more connected and accessible than ever before. Through my
198 BAL HARBOUR
years of visiting the island nation, I’ve learned who to ask for all the best Icelandic insights. Here, I share some of my personal favorites, honed through friendships, family and my ongoing fascination with this remarkable place. First and foremost, one must approach the country with an understanding that Icelandic luxury is more synonymous with comfort than lavish extravagance. For Reykjavík lodging, I recommend the deco-style Hotel Borg, old-school Hotel Holt, Nordic-chic 101 Hotel, or the new Konsulat Hotel, all of which are perfectly situated among the best restaurants in the heart of downtown. My top choice these days is the Middle Eastern-inﬂuenced Sumac—order the cod and herbaceous cauliﬂower. Soon, visitors will also have the option to stay at Scandinavia’s ﬁrst Edition hotel, slated to open later this year right beside the stunning Harpa Concert Hall, which features a glistening façade by artist Olafur Eliasson and is the most glorious building in all of Iceland. For those craving an opportunity to unplug and feel as though they’ve been transported to another planet,

202 BAL HARBOUR
The Retreat Hotel and Spa at Blue Lagoon oozes otherworldly tranquility and makes for a memorable romantic getaway. Rumor has it that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were recent guests. While trips along the Golden Circle ring road south of Reykjavík are a good way to tick oﬀ a variety of sites in a day or two (think: the Gullfoss waterfall, geysers and glaciers) for those seeking the path less trodden, you must head east. Last summer, we drove six hours from Reykjavík to Höfn to visit Diamond Beach, a magniﬁcent black sand shoreline decked out with large chunks of glacier ice that glisten like jewels. Artist- turned-perfumer Andrea Maack agrees that the east is where it’s at and referred me to another must-visit spot nearby, the new Vök boathouse. For the most experiential dining experience, fashion designer Hildur Yeoman recommends making a pilgrimage to Slippurinn, an atmospheric seasonal restaurant located on the Westman Islands, a whale sanctuary oﬀ the southern coast that is accessible only by boat or plane. “The whole archipelago is beautiful and this place truly will wow you with its New Nordic menu and incredible setting,” she says. Housed in an old shipyard, the familyrun restaurant’s inventive cuisine is the work of young chef Gísli Matthías Auðunsson. Kalda footwear designer Katrin Alda inspired me to go camping (wearing the cool hiking boots she named after me) in Ásbyrgi, in northeastern Iceland. “It’s a beautiful canyon we believe was formed when Odin’s eight-legged horse touched one of its feet to the ground,” she says of the nature reserve steeped in Viking lore. Over the summer I also ventured with artist and photographer Saga Sig to Akureyri, Iceland’s most northern city that is decidedly cultured despite its remote location at the top of the world. Saga made sure I experienced the famous Brynja ice cream parlor and untouched sci-ﬁ landscapes. I also visited my ancestral home in the tiny town of Húsavík, the country’s whale watching capital, and took a dip in the breathtaking GeoSea thermal sea baths, a new cliﬀside spot overlooking the ocean. The year-round swimming and bathing culture in Iceland is so ingrained that there are more pools per capita than any other country. In Reykjavík, I pretend I’m a local and visit the recently refurbished Sundhöllin pool, the oldest in the city, to swim laps and soak in the hot and freezing cold tubs. I always leave radiant and rid of any jet lag. Afterwards, I pop down the street to Reykjavík Roasters, the best cafe in town, for a Scandi-style oat milk latte, homemade soup and rye bread with Icelandic butter—which is the best you’ll ever have, so make sure to smear generously. I always bring bricks of the brand Smjör back from the airport delicatessen, Pure Foods, along with a suitcase’s worth of slightly salty black licorice, salmon gravlax and Reyka vodka. It’s just enough to tide me over until I can go back again. And again.
