THIS ISSUE HAS SERVED UP THE glamour and sophistication of the spring season in typical Bal Harbour fashion. My friend and brilliant photographer, Stewart Shining, photographed Kasimira Wilding for our 18-page cover story. The newlywed whose mother once posed for the famous French photographer, Guy Bourdin, convinced her husband Tarquin (Elizabeth Taylor’s grandson) to pose for a few shots. The gorgeous couple invites the reader to spend a day in their life as Kasimira effortlessly rocks some of the best spring looks from Chanel, Balenciaga, McQueen, Versace and Ermanno Scervino, to name just a few. For our second cover, the iconic Ruven Afanador captures model Missy Rayder in the season’s best whimsical looks adorned with feathers and lace. These covers capture both the spirit of spring and the depth of feeling fashion often evokes. Also in the issue, writer Les Standiford talks with Mitchell Kaplan, the founder of beloved shop Books & Books, about Kaplan’s growing production career and their passionate commitment to literature and culture. As serious bookworms ourselves, we were very lucky to have Jacqueline Terrebonne, who previously worked with legendary author and former Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl, review Reichl’s new book Save Me the Plums, in a nostalgic recollection of their days at Gourmet. Mark your calendars for a reading by Reichl at Books & Books on April 23. Speaking of emotional connection, that’s exactly what makes Bal Harbour so special, says the president and CEO of Bal Harbour Shops, Matthew Whitman Lazenby, in Theater of Shopping, Alastair Gordon’s story about the prescient vision of Stanley Whitman: “People have emotional connections to Bal Harbour, which is very unique for a shopping center.” Whitman, Lazenby’s grandfather, founded Bal Harbour shops in £™ÈxÆÜi«Àœwi…ˆ“ˆ˜>«ÀiۈiÜœvœÀ`œ˜½ÃLˆœ}À>«…Þ° His incredible narrative will inspire you to embrace your own passions—after all, fashion is about so much more than brand names. It’s the art form that speaks most directly to personal expression, and there is endless potential for fashion to translate who we are on the inside to how we present ourselves to the world. It’s why we do what we do.

“I jumped at the chance to photograph Kasimira again,” says photographer

STEWART SHINING. “She’s one of my all time favorite models to shoot. And since she’s a newlywed, I thought it’d be really fun to include her husband Tarquin Wilding, one of Elizabeth Taylor’s grandsons. Kasimira’s mother was a favorite model of the legendary fashion photographer Guy Bourdin in the ’70s, so between the two of them there’s some seriously good genes bouncing around. Add their adorable rescue pups Jackson and Sammy, photograph them in their new home, and you’ve got a pretty good shoot!” On page 170, JENNIFER PIEJKO checks in with the founders of Summit, which brings together ̅œÕ}…̏i>`iÀÃvÀœ“Û>ÀˆœÕÃwi`ÃvœÀÀi>‡ˆvi exchange and connection. “Our interests are so divided now, the idea of getting people together to teach each other is so appealing,” she says. “Summit is trying to do something that we just don’t encounter in our regular social and working lives anymore.”

A MAN OF VISION COURTESY OF WHITMAN FAMILY ARCHIVES

Stanley Whitman founded Bal Harbour Shops more than five decades ago, bringing European luxury to Miami and paving the way for an entirely new concept of fashion. Theater of Shopping, out this February from Rizzoli, is a celebration of Whitman’s life and legend. BY NICOLE MARTINEZ

Stanley Whitman at the opening of the new Versace boutique in 1991.

“THEATER OF SHOPPING IS TRULY A STORY about a man and his creation,” says Matthew Whitman Lazenby, the president and CEO of Bal Harbour Shops and grandson of Stanley Whitman—the visionary who founded the Shops in 1965. “It’s as much about one as it is the other.” Written by Alastair Gordon, Theater of Shopping weaves together Whitman’s personal and family history with real estate, fashion and the social and economic forces of the 20th century to tell a behind-the-scenes story of the early days of the now-iconic luxury enclave, while celebrating the man who made it all happen. Whitman spent his childhood on Collins Avenue, watching wÀÃ̅>˜` >à ˆ>“ˆ Ü>à ÌÀ>˜ÃvœÀ“i` vÀœ“ > ÀœÕ}…‡>˜`‡ÌՓLi tropical outpost into the global cultural destination it is today.

7…ˆÌ“>˜ Ü>à œ˜i œv ̅i wÀÃÌ ̜ ÀiVœ}˜ˆâi ̅i «œÌi˜Ìˆ> œv ̅i concurrent burgeoning of air travel and American suburbs in order to entice the most selective shoppers to a modern destination with both fashion and experience at the forefront. Underlying his vision from the outset was the importance of architecture. “Design,” explains writer and director Matthew Tyrnauer in the book’s introduction, “would determine the quality of the shopping experience.” ˜ £™x{] 7…ˆÌ“>˜ ÃiÌ œÕÌ œ˜ ܅>Ì ܜՏ` LiVœ“i ̅i wÀÃÌ œv many research expeditions to realize the transformation of the 16 acres of swampland that today are the site of Bal Harbour Shops. He traveled from Fifth Avenue to the Champs-Élysées to the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, which, set in a similarly tropical setting BAL HARBOUR 61


to Miami, became an inspiration for the Shops. Whitman also visited dozens of middle-of-theroad establishments in cities like Yonkers and Arlington to understand the practical concerns of building a shopping center, including the social and psychological habits of shoppers. Traversing the country by car and often staying in motels, he meticulously documented everything he saw using notecards and a Contax Model III-A V>“iÀ> ܈̅ ܅ˆV… …i V>«ÌÕÀi` > ÛiÀÞ ëiVˆwV moment in American history—through images of shoppers, mannequins, sidewalks, power stations and every conceivable element necessary for the construction of a retail center. Whitman’s uncompromising belief in the importance of architecture went hand-in-hand with his outlook on which brands would be able to present their styles at Bal Harbour Shops: only the best. Though it was an era when European designers opened their storefronts on only the grandest of avenues, Whitman set out to bring them to Miami. Helping him along the way was Martha Phillips, a New York-born luxury retail 62 BAL HARBOUR

pioneer, whose shop—simply called Martha— was a mecca for celebrities and discerning clients. Phillips brought many European desingers to Miami, including Valentino himself on one of his wÀÃÌÌÀˆ«Ã̜̅i1˜ˆÌi`-Ì>Ìið Martha and F.A.O.

Today, Whitman’s legacy continues as Bal Harbour Shops remains synonymous with luxury and Lazenby carries forth his grandfather’s ability to stay one step ahead of the times. “Bal Harbour Shops has always been about creating something memorable,” says Lazenby. “People have emotional connections to Bal Harbour, which is very unique for a shopping center. Stanley Whitman certainly set the tone for generations to come.”

THE ART OF INSPIRATION Laurence Graff invokes his prized private art collection for his high jewelry brand’s new Cy Twombly-inspired collection. Shannon Adducci catches up with the octogenarian legend.

IS JEWELRY ART? IT’S A QUESTION that has confounded the art world and the jewelry industry for decades. The former tends to brush off jewelry designers as lesser artists, while the latter often focuses more on the intrinsic value of the gold, diamonds and other materials that may comprise a piece of jewelry than on the value of design alone. But, as major art shows, auction records and important private sales have proven, both have major investment potential. Laurence Graff knows this. Since 1960, the 80-year-old has helmed Graff, which today is one of the world’s top purveyors of

important gemstones and high jewelry, vertically integrating its sourcing, design, manufacturing and retail operations. The founder has become especially well-known for his sourcing, paying top dollar at auctions for rare diamonds, including the Wittelsbach, a famous blue diamond with an illustrious family history. Graff purchased the stone from Christie’s Geneva for a then-record-setting $23.4 million (in true jeweler fashion—and to the dismay of many—he then had the stone recut to enhance its color and clarity). Graff has played a similar role of buying maverick with

impeccable taste in the art world, having amassed a private collection of mostly modern art that includes rare and enviable works like Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe portrait in lavender, Pablo Picasso’s L’Aubade (1967) (purchased in 2004 from Sotheby’s) and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled (The Black Athlete) (1982), which he reportedly purchased via phone bid at Sotheby’s in 2015 for 3.5 million euros.

Drawing from artists Paolo Scheggi, Kazimir Malevich and Cy Twombly, Graff created a series of statement earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets that mirror the artists’ famous abstract motifs. “The art world has long been an inspiration,” Graff explains. “I don’t see the worlds of art and jewelry as mutually exclusive. I appreciate >w˜i«>ˆ˜Ìˆ˜}ˆ˜iÝ>V̏Þ̅iÃ>“iÜ>Þ>Ã`œ>Li>ṎvՏ`ˆ>“œ˜`°» Graff’s point of view on jewelry is a unique one that could only be molded through his decades of experience in handling gemstones by the thousands, one by one. When the jeweler started his business in a tiny room in Hatton Garden (London’s jewelry quarter dating back to Medieval times), he was selling semi-precious rings for two or three pounds each. Now, he and his son François (the brand’s CEO since 2004) handle stones in the 100-carat-plus category, ˆ˜VÕ`ˆ˜} ̅i À>vv 6i˜ÕÃ] ̅i ܜÀ`½Ã >À}iÃÌ  y>܏iÃà …i>À̇ shaped diamond at 118.78 carats. And in 2017, Graff purchased the 1,109-carat piece of Botswana-sourced rough known as the Lesedi La Rona for $53 million and is in the process of turning it into 67 diamond pieces. Graff’s artist-inspired pieces are of no lesser quality than his

famous mega-stones, and this year’s additions to the Inspired by Twombly collection features stunners that capture the artist’s whirls and twirls in a new way, using sculptural ribbons of stones—most of them diamonds. “The works of Twombly have a creative verve that really excites me,” says Graff. “I wanted to capture the incredible viiˆ˜}œv뜘Ì>˜iˆÌÞ̅>Ì`iw˜iÃ…ˆÃܜÀŽ°» œÀi ëiVˆwV>Þ] ̅>Ì i˜iÀ}Þ Vœ“ià ˆ˜ ̅i vœÀ“ œv ÀœÜà œv invisible-set diamonds, many of which are punctuated by pearshaped diamonds that mimic Twombly’s calligraphic forms, originally done on large-scale canvases. “To achieve this freeyœÜˆ˜} ivviVÌ] iÛiÀÞ }i“ “ÕÃÌ Li VÕÃ̜“‡VÕÌ]» Ã>Þà À>vv] ܅œ admits that the task of achieving the three-dimensional swirls was ºiÝÌÀi“iÞ `ˆvwVՏ̻ >˜` ÀiµÕˆÀi` ºˆ““i˜Ãi Έ» vÀœ“ LœÌ… …ˆÃ craftsmen and designers (the latter of which include design director Anne-Eva Geffroy). Graff isn’t usually one to play favorites (how could he with the volume of diamonds and jewelry that has passed through his hands over the years?), but of the new Inspired by Twombly pieces he points to a 59.59-carat diamond bracelet with the collection’s ribbon motif. “The swirls of diamonds extend all the way round the wrist—it’s a fantastic creation,” he says. There is also a series of looping earrings in four different styles (one of which is an all-diamond update to the original diamond-and-ruby iteration), an 8.13-carat ring designed ܈̅ˆ˜w˜ˆÌÞ`ˆ>“œ˜`œœ«Ã>˜`>˜>‡`ˆ>“œ˜`ÃÌ>Ìi“i˜Ì˜iVŽ>Vi that features 25 pear-shaped diamond drops and totals 83.58 carats. The jeweler is tight-lipped on the brand’s future creations with artists. “You’ll have to wait and see,” he says coyly. But Graff insists that art has informed many of the brand’s most expressive jewels over the years, and will continue to inspire more. And of that oft-debated, original question: Is jewelry actually art? “Without a doubt,” says Graff.

THE POWER OF THE PUMP For Italian shoe designer Gianvito Rossi, empowerment is on par with elegance. BY NICOLE MARTINEZ

“I envisioned a collection that works for laying on the beach or partying on the beach, and just feeling very relaxed and free in the moment.” -Gianvito Rossi “TO TRULY EMPOWER A WOMAN, you have to show her personality, not yours,” Gianvito Rossi tells me at his Bal Harbour showroom. “You need to give her a shoe for her every style and every mood.” Glamorous and practical, it’s no wonder that Rossi’s eponymous label has quickly become a staple for smart dressing among the style set. Developing his craft alongside his father, the venerated shoe designer Sergio Rossi, Gianvito Rossi struck out on his own in ÓääÈ°º œ˜w`i˜VivœÀ>ܜ“>˜“i>˜ÃLiˆ˜}vi“ˆ˜ˆ˜i but not too fragile, and wearing a style that makes her feel comfortable,” he says.

It’s a charity that’s close to his vision for the brand. “Women need to be strong to face their challenges,” he says. “Style is particularly relevant in the way she faces the world.” His design ethos is inspired by the women in his own life: His wife of 25 years, Monica Rossi, works for the brand, and his daughter Sophie spends her time away from university consulting her father on a variety of projects. With his son Nicola also at the helm, Rossi’s business and personal life are inextricably intertwined. “A typical Saturday or Sunday morning is spent in the studio, going over our designs and spending time with prototypes, sketches, ideas and materials,” he says. The resulting footwear toes a delicate balance between fashionable and functional, with subtle accoutrements preferred over extravagant details, 72 BAL HARBOUR

and quality fabrics sourced from Italian tanneries. His signature Vamp bootie, for example, is the embodiment œv …ˆÃ Ãi˜ÃÕ>‡Þi̇«œÜiÀvՏ VÀi`œ\ Ƃ …ˆ}… L>VŽ >``à `À>“>̜>Å>À«Ã̈iÌ̜]܅ˆi>«Õ˜}ˆ˜}6‡VÕÌ`œÜ˜ the arch of the foot suggestively bears a little skin. “It really combines the two elements I want to bring to life: empowerment and femininity,” he says.

“THIS IS A SUBJECT THAT TOUCHES everyone,” Kinga Lampert is telling me, her voice bright with hope. For the last 12 years, the philanthropist has been the co-chair of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), founded in 1993 by Evelyn Lauder. It was Lauder’s family who asked Lampert to take on a leadership role when Lauder passed away. Now, says Lampert, she’s “so close to the research—and very hopeful.” The BCRF is the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide. In 2018, the foundation awarded $63 million in grants to support nearly 300 scientists at institutions in 14 countries. “In the last 25 years,” she explains, “every “>œÀ LÀi>ŽÌ…ÀœÕ}… “>`i ˆ˜ ̅i wi` ÃÌi““i` vÀœ“ ÃVˆi˜Vi supported by the BCRF.” Some of these are growing initiatives, like the liquid biopsy—a blood test to test for cancer “before it even appears on imaging or mammogram”—and Oncotype Dx, a test that can determine whether chemotherapy is necessary to reduce the risk of reoccurrence or metastasis (a certain estrogen receptor would mean patients can forgo it). “Early stage breast cancer is today 95 percent curable,” Lampert says, “but metastatic breast cancer—the sort that travels to organs and bones—is not. But there are incredible advances to prolong and better the lives of those who have it. This is why I feel we’re so close to a cure: perhaps breast cancer will be cured when women can live with it and not lose their lives to it.” Lampert loves science, particularly fact-based results. “Maybe that’s my lawyer mind,” she laughs. Lampert was born in Warsaw and raised in Paris, where she attended law school; her wÀÃ̍œL>Ì>>ÜwÀ“Ü>Ș iÜ9œÀŽ ˆÌÞ°-…i>˜`…iÀ…ÕÃL>˜` lived between Connecticut and the city for years—before relocating to Miami—and became close friends with the Lauder family. At the time, Lampert had stopped working to care for her children, and was getting approached by lots of organizations for her input and support. But she wanted to be, so to speak, in the trenches. “What was important to me,” she says, “was a working Lœ>À`°`ˆ`˜½ÌÜ>˜Ì̅iyÕvv° ÛiÞ˜«Àœ“ˆÃi`“i̅ˆÃˆÃ܅>Ì̅i foundation would be.” The Lampert Foundation, Eddie and Kinga Lampert’s foundation through which they now support BCRF, also assists lots of local organizations here in Miami. For Lampert personally, health care and education are the most rewarding spheres: she’s actively involved with Breakthrough Miami—an academic enrichment program for under-resourced students—Boys & Girls Club, and KIPP Public Charter School network, where she œ˜ViÃiÀÛi`œ˜̅iLœ>À`܅ˆiˆ˜ iÜ9œÀŽ°-…i>ÃœÀiVi˜ÌÞ took a seat on the board of Miami’s Sylvester Cancer Center. Lampert likes to stay busy—returning to work, she tells me, was an emotional boon. It’s also her compassion, her love for helping people in real ways, that keeps her going. -…iÀiV>ÃvœÀ“i]LÀˆiyÞ]̅i iÌ>ƂˆÀˆ˜ià Ài>ÃÌ >˜ViÀ "˜i «>˜i] ܅ˆV… >˜˜Õ>Þ yˆià ÃÕÀۈۜÀà ˆ˜ > Žˆ˜` œv ÃޓLœˆV gesture. (Delta is a corporate sponsor of BCRF.) “The plane was packed with survivors hugging, crying, sharing stories. It gives me goosebumps remembering this.” It reminded her of how she }œÌ ˆ˜ÛœÛi` ܈̅ , ˆ˜ ̅i wÀÃÌ «>Vi\ º œÛi` ̅>Ì viiˆ˜} of contributing to something good in the world. The statistics are amazingly hopeful. Women are unfortunately still dying, but the numbers are getting better. There are more survivors in the world—more women who, in spite of the disease, live full, normal lives.”

A PARK IN BLOOM A 10-mile stretch of parkland beneath the Metrorail is set to redeďŹ ne the way space is shared in Miami. We check in with Meg Daly, who shares her vision for the ambitious Underline project with us. BY SIOBHAN MORRISSEY 88 BAL HARBOUR

Š2018 JAMES CORNER FIELD OPERATIONS, COURTESY OF FRIENDS OF THE UNDERLINE

YEARS FROM NOW, THE HISTORY of the Miami Underline will read as a series of unlikely events. A proposed 10-mile ribbon of parkland beneath an elevated train system known as Metrorail, the Underline might never have broken ground this past fall if Meg Daly hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fallen off her bicycle and broken both arms. Daly got the idea for the park while walking to her physical therapist. Despite the heat of the day, it was cool in the shadow of the tracks, and she thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to turn this into a park.â&#x20AC;? Where others saw only patchy grass and dirt, Daly envisioned ÂŤi`iĂ&#x192;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;>Â&#x2DC; >Â&#x2DC;` LÂ&#x2C6;VĂ&#x17E;VÂ?i ÂŤ>Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;Ă&#x192;] `Â&#x153;} ÂŤ>Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x17D;Ă&#x192;] LĂ&#x2022;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x152;iĂ&#x20AC;yĂ&#x17E; }>Ă&#x20AC;`iÂ&#x2DC;Ă&#x192; >Â&#x2DC;` iĂ?iĂ&#x20AC;VÂ&#x2C6;Ă&#x192;i âÂ&#x153;Â&#x2DC;iĂ&#x192;°iĂ&#x20AC;iÂŤÂ&#x2C6;ÂŤÂ&#x2026;>Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x17E;V>Â&#x201C;iÂ&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x201C;ä£Ă&#x17D;]>Â&#x2DC;`Â?Ă&#x2022;Ă&#x192;Ă&#x152;wĂ&#x203A;iĂ&#x17E;i>Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x192;Â?>Ă&#x152;iĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x2026;iĂ&#x20AC;ÂŤÂ?>Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x153;iÂ&#x2DC;Ă&#x152; vĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â&#x201C;ÂşVĂ&#x20AC;>âĂ&#x17E;Â&#x2C6;`i>ÂťĂ&#x152;Â&#x153;Ă&#x192;Â&#x2026;Â&#x153;Ă&#x203A;iÂ?Ă&#x192;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;i}Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Ă&#x2022;Â&#x2DC;`°/Â&#x2026;iwĂ&#x20AC;Ă&#x192;Ă&#x152;ÂŤÂ&#x2026;>Ă&#x192;iÂ&#x153;vĂ&#x152;Â&#x2026;iÂŤĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â?iVĂ&#x152;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x192; slated for completion in June 2020. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who know public infrastructure projects say this is breaking all Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;iĂ&#x20AC;iVÂ&#x153;Ă&#x20AC;`Ă&#x192;]Âť >Â?Ă&#x17E;Ă&#x192;>Ă&#x17E;Ă&#x192;°Âş Â&#x153;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;}Â&#x153;vĂ&#x152;Â&#x2026;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x192;Â?iĂ&#x203A;iÂ?Â&#x153;vVÂ&#x153;Â&#x201C;ÂŤÂ?iĂ?Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x17E;>Â&#x2DC;`vĂ&#x2022;Â&#x2DC;`Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;} gets done this quickly. But we have really good projects that came before usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the High Line, the Atlanta BeltLine, the 606 in Chicago.â&#x20AC;? With no delusions about the challenges the Underline poses, Daly maintains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really about overcoming the hurdles rather than focusing on how to make Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x152;i>Ă&#x192;Â&#x2C6;iĂ&#x20AC;°Ă&#x152;½Ă&#x192;Âź`Â&#x153;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x152;Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;}Â&#x2026;Ă&#x152;]½>Â&#x2DC;`wÂ&#x2DC;`Â&#x153;Ă&#x2022;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;Â&#x153;Ă&#x153;Ă&#x152;Â&#x153;}iĂ&#x152;Â&#x2C6;Ă&#x152;`Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;i° The entire project runs through three cities from downtown Miami southward.

MEMORIES OF AN EPICUREAN PAST

PORTRAIT BY MICHAEL SINGER

Ruth Reichl’s memoir of her days as the editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine is out this spring. Jacqueline Terrebonne reflects on the book and her days eating and editing alongside the legendary critic.

Ruth Reichl comes to Books & Books at Bal Harbour Shops for a talk about Save Me the Plums on April 23.

LAST WEEK IN PARIS, AS I SLATHERED mounds of housemade pâté de campagne on thick slices of bread at L’Ami Jean, I heard a familiar sound—the voices of Americans. There was a big table of women seated in the window laughing over bottles of red; by the bar, a couple on a long-weekend getaway canoodled. And then there was the New York-based catering chef ordering everything on the menu with his wife. The low-ceilinged, off-the-beaten-path restaurant had become a must on every foodie adventure in Paris for one reason—

Ruth Reichl had anointed it so in Gourmet’s “Paris on a Budget” issue in September 2008. Such was the power of Reichl and her team of editors for 10 glorious years, from 1999–2009, at the glossy food bible. It was the golden age of magazine publishing, especially at Condé Nast— when creativity reigned and budgets were unknown. In her memoir of that decade, entitled Save Me the Plums, which is out this April from Random House, she brings readers to the heart of that incredible

I had already had the great privilege of living it—as the special projects editor at Gourmet. When you tell people you worked at Gourmet, they light up. They have a million questions about what it was like, but most of all they want to know about Ruth. It’s hard not to sound like a blathering idiot answering. “She was amazing, inspiring. She was a great boss. She changed the way I think about food. She changed the way I think, period.” But it’s all incredibly true.

About three courses in at Del Posto, she noticed me chugging my water and not paying enough attention to my Barolo, and I inadvertently blurted out, “The food’s just so salty.” And she agreed. Huge sigh of relief, and I decided it was best to tell her what I really thought from then on. The book is packed with so many incredible memories, and you can tell she relishes in the retelling of them. What I didn’t expect was that this book about the past spoke so much to my present.

THE GENIUS OF CRAIG GREEN Continuing Monclerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with the most sought-after designers, Craig Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spring/ Summer 2019 collection for the brand takes the idea of weathering the elements to the next level. BY MARK BENJAMIN

120 BAL HARBOUR

AS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING NEW designers out of London, Craig Green has quickly become a leading voice for menswear. His unmistakable signature of deconstructing traditional menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silhouettes by way of referencing functional garments and uniforms has earned him a distinctive role within the industry. He combines a colorful and worldly approach to each collection with a constant reimagination of sportswear and the injection of innovative materials into his creations. Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s combination of vision and skill made him a natural choice for the ongoing Moncler Genius ÂŤĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â?iVĂ&#x152; VĂ&#x20AC;i>Ă&#x152;i` LĂ&#x17E; Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;VÂ?iĂ&#x20AC; "] ,iÂ&#x201C;Â&#x153; ,Ă&#x2022;vwÂ&#x2DC;Â&#x2C6;° Ă&#x20AC;iiÂ&#x2DC; debuted the voluminous and beautifully ominous Moncler 5 Craig Green for Fall 2018 in Milan to great fanfare last February. For Spring 2019, he collaborated with the project again, this time presenting a kinetic collection inspired by kites and tents. We check in with Green about his designs, collaborations and the process of creating something new. *QYFKF[QWHGGNYJGP[QWYGTGĆ&#x201A;TUVCUMGFVQDGRCTVQH VJG/QPENGT)GPKWURTQLGEV!I was working with Moncler for the capsule collection, Moncler C, when the Genius project was initially shared with me. It felt like an exciting opportunity to continue our collaboration and to keep building on the ideas and concepts that we had started developing together. *QYFQ[QWFGUETKDG/QPENGT! Moncler has always been a leader in developing product and understanding the end consumer. I think that owning a signature wardrobe item is the sign of true success for a brand, which is the case with Moncler and the feather down jacket. I think it is really impressive, how they are able to continue exploring and interpreting their traditional feather down while perfectly balancing traditional and modern ideas. %CP [QW VGNN WU CDQWV [QWT PGY EQNNGEVKQP HQT /QPENGT )GPKWUVJG0GZV%JCRVGT! For Moncler SS19, the initial idea was to develop structures to be used against the summer elements and explore ways to create protective structures and volumes without the use of padding. We looked at summer expeditions and things that are both protective and preventative: sun-shield, kites, tents, weathervanes. *QY FQ [QW UVC[ KPURKTGF!

MAN OF LETTERS Mitchell Kaplan is a pioneer of literary culture in Miami. Now, the founder of Books & Books is finding that same success with film. BY LES STANDIFORD PORTRAIT BY GESI SCHILLING

THE FAMED AND OFTEN VERY FUNNY crime writer Elmore “Dutch” Leonard once opined during a Miami reading that “the chances of getting your book turned into a movie are about the same as drawing a picture of a car and sending it to the head of General Motors, asking ‘don’t you want to make one of these?’” But if Mitchell Kaplan, owner of South Florida’s iconic Books & Books, was listening, he wasn’t listening very closely.

matter,” he says. “We came up with innovative techniques where we could print on both sides of a silk scarf, developed in an Italian factory that sadly no longer exists.” Today he designs for a prominent fashion house and lives with husband Stuart Vevers, executive creative director at Coach, in New York. He illustrates for various magazines and brands (stay tuned for a series of collages for Marc Jacobs) and is always open to new endeavors, such as designing invitations for weddings or fashion shows. Scroll through his IG feed and in addition to those eye-grabbing collages, you’ll see charismatic illustrations of Karl Lagerfeld, Diana Vreeland and other fashion royalty. “My favorite illustrations of Ben’s are always his portraits,” says Sui. “Not only does he delicately capture the likeness of a person, he can reveal their true inner essence.”

THE CURATOR

Social media star @paridust is taking her signature mashup of fashion and art to the far corners of the world. BY TAYLOR DAFOE PORTRAIT BY LOGAN JACKSON

TWO YEARS AGO, PARI EHSAN, aka @paridust, felt like she was ready to take the next step in her career. Over the previous half decade, the fairy-esque woman known for posing in couture fashion next to works of contemporary art—donning a banded Salvatore Ferragamo blouse in front of Daniel Buren’s signature stripes, for instance, or a Lou Dallas dress next to a suite of colorful Isa Genzken collages—had gone from being a `iÈ}˜iÀ܈̅>Lœ}̜>Lœ˜>w`iˆ˜yÕi˜ViÀ° She had amassed hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram, was sought after by brands from both sides of the art-fashion divide, and was ready to push her project to the next level. But that change didn’t quite come about like she had hoped. “It was one of those things where you think you’re ready for something, but really you need to master all these other small things to be able to realize the next level of a concept,” says Ehsan in her soft, metered voice. “It was an ongoing realization

over the past two years. There were things in my life that I hadn’t sorted out, stones I had left unturned. I was really forced to recognize those and resolve them.” So she went to work. She doubled down on Pari Dust, making increasingly sophisticated pictures that could compete with shoots from the glossiest of fashion magazines. She expanded her website to include interviews and personal essays. And she began taking on more collaborations than ever. œÜ] …Ã>˜ ˆÃ w˜>Þ Ài>`Þ ̜ Ì>Ži the next step. And it’s an ambitious one. Ehsan plans to expand Pari Dust into a fullyi`}i` i`ˆÌœÀˆ> «>ÌvœÀ“ ë>˜˜ˆ˜} ÜVˆ> media and her own website. She wants to bring on a dedicated staff and incorporate more writing, more video content and more creative collaborations. Perhaps most importantly, she wants more voices. Citing Anthony Bourdain as an example, Ehsan wants to use her

signature mash-up of mediums to shine a light on cultures around the world. As a wÀÃÌ}i˜iÀ>̈œ˜Ƃ“iÀˆV>˜LœÀ˜̜>˜À>˜ˆ>˜ father and Dutch mother, she’s long been fascinated by, as she puts it, “art’s ability to transcend region, race and religion.” She adds, “I want to explore the ways in which art and fashion intersect around the world, how they shape culture and identity.” It’s ambitious, but don’t count her out. She may look like a pixie, but she has a dogged work ethic. And the stars are literally in her favor. For Sagittarians—which Ehsan, >˜ >ÃÌÀœœ}Þ ˜ÕÌ] ˆÃpÓ䣙 ˆÃ ̅i wÀÃÌ >˜` luckiest year in what is supposed to be a particularly fruitful cycle of 12 consecutive years. “For the last two years, I’ve been carrying a backpack full of bricks,” she says, with a smile. “All the work that I’ve done is important and I’ll get to keep it forever, but this next period, the next 12 years—it’s going to all explode.”

Chanel Haute Couture x Davide Balliano Since September 2014, Ehsan has conceptualized and photographed with pieces from every Chanel Haute Couture Collection in an ongoing creative collaboration with the brand.

The Amazing Monsieur Mouret

Roland Mouret isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t superstitious, but he is a magician. In his new book, the French fashion designer talks intimately about the art of transforming his clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and himself. BY KAREN QUARLES

Roland Mouret views his designs as tools to empower the women that wear them— tailored suits and coats from 2013 and 2017 collections put a bold and feminine spin on the menswear-inspired powersuit.

MACABRE AND OCCULT DETAILS surface throughout fashion designer Roland Mouret’s new monograph, Roland Mouret: Provoke, Attract, Seduce. As a boy in his father’s butcher shop, near the pilgrimage town of Lourdes, France, he would submerge his hands in the buckets of blood, entranced by the way it would coat his arms like a pair of red opera gloves. The opening chapter, in fact, is called “Blood Bones and Fat.” In it he describes learning his father’s trade—carving meat, trimming fat—and the way that intimate knowledge of yiÅ ˆ˜yÕi˜Vià …ˆÃ ܜÀŽ >à > `iÈ}˜iÀ° Ãi܅iÀi …i says that his favorite number is 13. Another spread is devoted to a black-and-white photocopy of his hands, annotated with a palm reading. There are also more personal dark shadows. The book, which grants readers access to Mouret’s inner world, is formatted as a series of interviews conducted by award-winning fashion journalist Alexander Fury. In those conversations, Mouret discusses his fraught relationship with his father and his feelings of being trapped by convention. “There are a lot of personal things in the book, about my family and myself when I was young,” says Mouret by phone from London, where he’s lived and worked since the 1990s. Curiously, though, the lauded designer’s clothes >ÀiVœ˜w`i˜Ì]Õ«Li>Ì>˜`œvÌi˜Lœ`Þ“œ˜œV…Àœ“>̈V° There’s not a whiff of spidery goth girl or angsty grunge waif. Like the best spells, Mouret’s magic is invisible yet completely transformational. Take his most famous creation: the Galaxy dress. The opening look from his fall 2005 runway show, it became an instant red-carpet favorite, worn that season by Victoria Beckham, Cameron Diaz and Naomi Watts. Since then, it’s evolved into a beloved classic, spotted on the likes of Miranda Kerr, Dita Von Teese, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson and the queen herself—Beyoncé. Inspired by the glamour of Paris in the 1940s, the bodycon silhouette is enhanced by an interior belt. “I have a friend who is a drag queen, and he pulls on a belt with his costumes,” Mouret recounts in the book. “So I pinched the dress in one inch at the waist, with a tape inside, to give it that look.” It’s far from his only trick. He’s known as a master of draping—molding fabric around the body with tucks and folds rather than cuts and seams. Largely selftaught, Mouret developed his own technique, which has become his signature. Throughout Provoke, Attract, Seduce, new photographs taken expressly for the book by Mouret’s longtime friend and collaborator Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou illustrate his deft and original approach to design.

In the chapter titled “Glamour and Uniform,” Mouret reveals that his particular penchant for the styles of Old Hollywood and classic French cinema grew from a childhood obsession with movies and ÌiiۈȜ˜° i Ü>à ÌÀ>˜ÃwÝi` LÞ ̅i Ü>Þ clothes, along with pose and attitude, could build an image. “That was maybe my wÀÃÌ œÛip̜ LiVœ“i > “>}ˆVˆ>˜] ̜ Ž˜œÜ ̅i ÌÀˆVŽÃ] ̜ VÀi>Ìi >˜ ˆ“>}i ̅>Ì «iœ«i are really surprised by,” he tells Fury. “I ̅ˆ˜Ž “Þ œÛi œv ȏ…œÕiÌÌi] œv > ȏ…œÕiÌÌi

“Women have to fight very hard to establish themselves in the world, to become who they want to be. It’s not easy.

“What we’re striving to create is a platform where you have the best, the brightest and the most innovative from all verticals gathered in one space.” —Alex Zhang

COMMUNITY BUILDING CAN START TO FEEL like a hollow term for networking. Tumblr published guidelines for it. Start-up incubators pride themselves on it. A kind of socializing for the anti-social, our new ways of building one, however loosely, provide little structure for making them a tangible reality. Summit, however, seems to understand that locality, even for a short while, is essential to weaving together some earnest threads of connection. The annual kaleidoscopic, Los Angeles-based well, summit, brings together a curated program of people who appear to have little in common with each other except that they‘ve all made it to the level of global expert, leader—or even star. “We want people to connect better,” Alex Zhang, the organization’s Art Director, says over breakfast at Silver Lake’s perpetually buzzing Café Stella. “Human connection and empathy go a long way. In all six pillars of Summit‘s program—Talks, Performances, Wellness, Culinary, Arts, and Impact—human connection is in the

middle. We can connect over a great meal or a yoga class, and it’s the most successful when it’s multidisciplinary and multigenerational and multidimensional. What we’re striving to create is a platform where you have the best, the brightest, and the most innovative from all verticals gathered in one space. Right now, that doesn’t exist; most industries are quite siloed if you think about it.” Summit grew from the same place that many straightforward solutions to the world’s complex circumstances do—with friends talking late into the night. Ryan Begelman, Summit’s CEO, describes the organization’s beginnings as something unforeseen. “When we started, we had barely been to an event, let alone a talk. We were in our early to mid-20s, working nonstop to start our careers. The idea of a talk never came up until days before the second Summit, in Riviera Maya, Mexico in 2009. We just thought, ‘what if Scott Harrison, founder of Charity Water, shared his story and a bit about his mission to drill wells across Africa?’ The day of his talk, we scrambled together

Giuliano [Hazan] delights in sharing his “love and respect for good food,” whether he’s teaching students to “chop onions and sauté scaloppine” or leading them on daily excursions throughout the Veneto region—from a visit to an ancient mill where rice for risotto is processed the same way it was in 1648; to witnessing the making of olive oil at a frantoio; to tasting rare Culatello di Zibello, an air-cured ham more prized than prosciutto. 178 BAL HARBOUR

Behind the quaint façade of this cooking school and bakery in Bath, England, is Richard Bertinet, the acclaimed French baker and chef who was named the 2010 BBC Food Champion of the Year. A selfdescribed Anglophile, Bertinet has lived and worked in the UK for over three decades, establishing the school with his wife, Jo, in 2005. While Bertinet offers a range of culinary courses spanning a host of cuisines and styles for all levels of cooks—such as saucing, pasta making and knife skills—his specialty is breadmaking and pastries. “I love the fact that you can take three basic, simple ingredients— yœÕÀ] Ü>ÌiÀ >˜` Ã>Ìp>˜` ܈̅ œ˜Þ ޜÕÀ …>˜`à >˜` …i>Ì] VÀi>Ìi something that is both beautiful and life-sustaining,” says Bertinet, who began his training as a baker at the age of 14. Often overhead imparting his catchphrase, “Show the dough who’s boss!” Bertinet uses a high hydration level, so his doughs are wetter, and he encourages his ÃÌÕ`i˜ÌÃ̜}iÌ«>ÃÌ̅i˜>ÌÕÀ>Ã̈VŽˆ˜iÃðº9œÕ`œ˜½ÌÜ>˜Ì̜>``yœÕÀ to the dough,” he explains. “You just need to take charge of it, to learn how to control it, so you can turn it into something truly beautiful.” Passionate about both bread and teaching, Bertinet describes what he calls the “fougasse grin,” the look of pride on his students’ faces when ̅iÞÌ>Ži̅iˆÀwÀÃÌvœÕ}>ÃÃi]>œ>vˆ˜̅iÅ>«iœv>}ˆ>˜Ìi>v]œÕÌœv the oven. “The achievement of having made something that is both beautiful to look at and delicious is written all over their faces, and I never get tired of seeing it.”

Returning from the market, Cárdenas hosts students at his home for four-hour cooking sessions, where his first rule of thumb is “Siempre cocina con amor” or “always cook with love.” Paco Cárdenas focuses on fresh, vibrant food—beginning with a trip to the local market where the photo-ready ingredients are as mouthwatering as the dishes they are made into.

IDYLLIC ESCAPE

Dominic Bradbury surveys a series of homes off the beaten path in this volume, which features state-of-the-art houses secluded in the wilderness, eons away from the distractions of urban life. The gorgeous edition captures an array of hideawaysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all of them self-sustaining with renewable energyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from Tasmania to New York, from hillside to coastline. Bradburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selects offer a dreamy escape while also highlighting the practicality and beauty of sustainable, off-thegrid living that keeps us close to the natural environment.

As someone who explores an array of homes and lifestyles, what do you consider the ideal living situation? On a personal and professional level, I have become more and more interested in 21st-century country living. I live in a small, rural village and love the sense of freedom that this gives me in comparison with my years of living in London. I feel more inspired, more creative and more in tune with the world in the countryside. My new book (Off the Grid: Houses for Escape) explores country living in a fresh way, looking at those who have managed to balance creating extraordinary homes in rural settings with thoughtful sensitivity to the environment in every sense. What prior education or exposure has sculpted your eye for architecture and design? Or were you simply born with an eye for aesthetics? I studied English literature and history at university, followed by a post-graduate diploma in journalism, so the written word has always been incredibly important to me. But at the same time I have always loved architecture, interiors and design, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the subject I have followed for the last 20+ years and through my books. Travel is a reoccurring topic in your work. Why is it so important to expose the public to different cultures and ways of life? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an important theme now. I think, generally, we are all so much more worldly, wellinformed and better travelled than ever before, `Ă&#x20AC;>Ă&#x153;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;}Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;yĂ&#x2022;iÂ&#x2DC;ViĂ&#x192;>Â&#x2DC;`Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2DC;Ă&#x192;ÂŤÂ&#x2C6;Ă&#x20AC;>Ă&#x152;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;vĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â&#x201C;>Â?Â? over the globe. As writers and publishers, we need to be aware of this. For me, travel has always been a really important part of the whole creative process. What do you consider to be the fundamental elements attached to superior design? What are a few qualities you look for when deciding which properties to cover? I am always looking for homes and buildings with a unique character. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for strong ideas and for a wonderful story to explore and celebrate. Often, such truly original projects are a positive collaboration between a client with a dream and an architect who responds to that dream and builds upon it. Or it might be an architectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own home, perhaps, where he or she has the freedom to explore new ideas and invent something new. As a long-time writer specializing in architecture, have you recognized an increase in sustainable design over the years? Yes, absolutely. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming a really important and vital strand in architecture and design. Architects have been talking about this for a long time, of course, but now their clients are also seeing it as a priority. Construction and house building takes up a lot of energy, so there is a huge responsibility to be as sustainable as we can and as sensitive to the environment as we can. Going off the grid, using passive design techniques and home-grown heat and energy is one way of living up to that responsibility. BAL HARBOUR 207
