Innovations like a revolutionary stereoscopic camera, Cross-Traffic Assist, Pedestrian Recognition and Steering Assist all made their debut in the E-Class. Without a doubt, it is the most intelligent, most exhilarating E-Class ever. MBUSA.com/E-Class

THE 2014 E-CLASS
his is the 100th issue of C—and I can’t believe the time has come! When the idea for a magazine presenting the best of California first sprang to mind more than 10 years ago, we had hoped we would one day get to this point. But for it to be a reality is another thing entirely. A lot goes into making this publication and it all begins with the staff. Over the years, we
have had a stellar group of editors and designers creating each issue. The thought and care that goes into every story is incredible. And the response we continue to get from our dear readers makes it worthwhile. It all started at Santa Barbara Magazine on a couple of pages of scrap paper, sketching out
different sections of a magazine representing this amazing state. The original launch team met in secret to design the mock-up—an auspicious way to begin. Our first real office had white dry-erase boards filled with all sorts of lists, sections, contributors and mood boards outlining the makings of what we thought would be a must-read publication. Call it chutzpah or moxie (we had both), but really we were just too young and naive to think the idea could fail. We are so grateful to our readers, friends, supporters, ambassadors, contributors, business partners and everyone in this glorious state that gives us so much to report on. It is because of all of you that we are here today to publish this milestone. We hope this fall fashion issue full of only fabulous things is the thank-you present you deserve. From our wonderful cover story on actress Hailee Steinfeld to an exclusive peek at
talented photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank’s new book, Young Hollywood, to home tours with talented California designers (Susie Crippen’s Hancock Park abode and John Eshaya’s Palm Springs pad) to must-have looks (be it sporty chic or cozy sweater dressing), you’ll be ready for the season. A feature that we are excited to present is a series of photographs by Hedi Slimane, snapped by the überdesigner in California and curated just for us (they’re part of a bigger exhibit opening this month at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent in Paris). The concept of a statewide California lifestyle magazine was initially met with skepticism. “How could a state that is known for movies and plastic surgery have that much to say?” I would hear. Or, “The south is so different from the north; never the two shall meet.” Well, 100 issues later, those sentiments are antiquated. The nation now looks to the left coast for style cues, technology cues and definitely culture cues. With the art world centering in our midst, with innovators in all sectors based within our borders, with clothing designers turning out internationally renowned collections, with philanthropists and activists shaping the conversation and award-winning architects reimagining the skyline—this is a spectacular place to live. At this landmark, we are just getting started. There are so many more stories to tell and we can’t

In Memory of Brian D. Leitch The minute I met Brian, I knew I was around greatness. His joie de vivre was infectious. He had a wit about him that oozed out of every sentence he wrote and spoke. I had a smile permanently on my face when he was in the office—he never failed to make me laugh. His stories were fascinating and he was just plain old fun and fabulous. So when he came on board to be C’s features director, I was thrilled. His tremendous background working at The New York Times, W and WWD, and his experience with Robert Altman in filmmaking (Prêt-à-Porter) proved to be immeasurable. The ideas he developed and the stories he wrote for us in his short time here were invaluable. More importantly, Sadly, Brian passed away unexpectedly in July after battling a health condition for years. We will miss him dearly and the genius he was dreaming up for future issues. We dedicate this special issue, our 100th, to Brian D. Leitch—a truly great writer, creative visionary and friend. —Jennifer Hale

Agyness Deyn’s California calling
British-born model Agyness Deyn’s storied career has spanned from international campaigns to designer collaborations (Dr. Martens) and almost every runway and magazine cover in between. Last spring at New York Fashion Week, Deyn eschewed Lincoln Center altogether, opting to post up at The NoMad Hotel to introduce her venture with sister Emily and friend Tracy Moore, Title/A. The multi-hyphenate model/singer/actress (she stars in Electricity this fall, and is filming Sunset Song with Terence Davies) and now designer has been working on the menswear-inspired line since she moved to Los Angeles and married actor Giovanni Ribisi in 2012. Kimono-like dresses of Japanese cotton, crushed-velvet cocktail numbers and tailored wool topcoats round out the debut collection. “I wear my husband’s clothes, luckily we’re the same size, and I just love the silhouettes,” she says. From $100; available at net-a-porter.com; titlea.com.

La Dolce Vita “I became obsessed with handmade sandals made by ‘sandalifici,’ or small sandal shops, while living in Italy,” says designer Claudia Aragon, who spent two years collecting footwear abroad before returning to Los Angeles to launch Cornetti sandals in 2012. Each of her leathered, colorful creations is handmade in Naples and named after a specific beach along the Italian coastline—plus they carry a little bit of luck (cornetti translates to “little bull horns,” an Italian symbol of good fortune). Having just returned from a summer holiday, Aragon shares her favorite haunts along the southern Italian coastline: La Conca del Sogno, Recommone The “cove of dreams” is a wonderful restaurant, beach and bed-and-breakfast only accessed by boat. • Mckenzye in Reggio Calabria and Buonocore in Capri are the two most notable gelato shops. • Buganville, Panarea The merchandise here is quintessential Italian “island style”— a lot of fine linens, silks and textiles in solid whites, bold prints and colorful patterns. • Therasia, Vulcano This resort and spa offers complete relaxation and an unparalleled panorama of the Aeolian Islands. • Li Galli Islands A small archipelago of three islands off the coast of Positano.

omeone once told me that designers shouldn’t design for themselves, they should always design for their customer,” says Soyun Shin from her loft studio in Larchmont Village. “But I think it’s a mistake not to ask, ‘Would I wear this?’” Armed with a strict “wearability test,” the fall lineup from Soyer (Shin’s five-year-old knitwear line) strikes the rare chord between high comfort and high fashion. While many pieces are 100 percent Italian cashmere, Shin plays with dimensional yarns, blending cashmere with baby alpaca, camel, yak and merino wools for both light and heavy layering pieces. Experimenting with volume and hemlines adds a refined edge. “Instead of overdesigning and making sure something looks good on paper, I focused on whether it was simple, efficient and something I would want to pick up every day,” she says. This is not the work of a fashion newcomer. Shin, a Ventura County native whose parents own an animation studio, graduated from Otis/ Parsons and spent almost two decades working as a designer for brands on the West Coast. An early stint at St. John in the mid-’90s, where she designed everything from buttons to jewelry, provided an introduction to woolens. She launched Soyer in 2009 earning the early support of retailers Desiree Kohan, Holly Boies of Salt and Curve’s Nevena Borissova. This fall, ribbed A-line sweaters, ground-skimming blanket coats and plunging pullovers are staples of the forward-thinking collection. She explains, “I think eventually we’ll introduce head-to-toe looks, but in that easy, chic, drawstring-pants-with-a-pair-of-heels kind of way.” soyerinc.com. •

The Beverly Hills store’s fifth-floor eatery, previously home to the New York deli-themed restaurant, will reopen with a newly expanded terrace, a repositioned stone bar and custom marble tables in October as the New American-meets-Italian-themed Freds. L.A.-based Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg is behind the waitstaff’s new uniforms, which he sums up as “quintessentially Band—a little preppy and very easy.” Meanwhile, executive chef Mark Strausman, who also presides over the restaurant’s Madison Avenue and Chicago locations, is at the helm. Strausman has already anticipated strategic regional menu tweaks—including gluten-free pasta options, of course—designed to win over even the most discerning palates.

This is my home.” Changes are also afoot at the Santa Monica and Glendale Co-Op stores, which recently morphed from contemporary line-focused annexes to mini versions of the department store complete with high-end ready-to-wear and accessories, featuring brands such as Alaïa, Chloé and Proenza Schouler. It’s a move that’s being heralded by financial forecasters including Forbes as an indicator that luxury is officially back. “We’ve found that our customer shops across all categories,” explains Daniella Vitale, Barneys’ chief operating officer and senior executive vice president. “We want the stores to reflect that.” 9570 Wilshire Blvd., B.H., 310-276-4400; barneys.com. •

Freedom Fighter Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei sends his provocative work to Alcatraz Island BY CATHERINE ELSWORTH
WH (ai wei)
t is an exhibition about freedom, its star an internationally acclaimed artist and activist famously imprisoned in his native China. The venue? One of the world’s most notorious prisons, infamous for being impossible to escape. Little wonder critics are calling this month’s “@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz” one of the year’s most anticipated art shows, an ambitious and unprecedented collision of art, activism and place. Ai Weiwei, arguably China’s best-known dissident artist, has created seven new installations inspired by Alcatraz, a former military prison, federal penitentiary, site of historic Native American protest and, now, a popular national park. He has also drawn on his own experience of incarceration at the hands of Chinese authorities: 81 days of secret detention in 2011, a period he described as “a nightmare, an experience no one should share.” The closest the 57-year-old will get to the site of the new show, however, is his Beijing home-studio, some 6,000 miles

away. Ai, whose provocative social, political and cultural commentary on all topics from the Beijing Olympics to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake has long enraged Chinese officials, has been unable to leave the country since his passport was confiscated three years ago. This, he explains in an interview with the exhibit’s curator, Cheryl Haines, caused “tremendous difficulty” when it came to creating the show. “At the same time, our show is about freedom, ironically, and human struggles for freedom of speech, for a better world, for a more civilized world,” he says. “[This] has always been restricted, also punished, damaged through history. And that’s still happening in many, many nations, so that is a strong reason why we have to do this show.” To produce the new sound, sculpture and multimedia works, Haines, a S.F.-based art advocate and gallery owner (Haines Gallery), made six trips to Beijing to visit Ai. She hand-delivered maps, archival materials, photographs and video footage about the island and the spaces where his work will be installed, as well as DVDs including Birdman of Alcatraz and Escape from Alcatraz. Members of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch also aided the collaboration. The works are being shipped from China or produced in

Exactly what the exhibition entails remains a secret, but the artist is known for bold, powerful and provocative work that ranges from sculpture and installation to photography and film, and addresses such issues as lack of human rights and government corruption. For a 2010 exhibition at the Tate Modern, London, Ai filled its vast Turbine Hall with more than 100 million handcrafted replica sunflower seeds. In 2009, he covered the exterior of Munich’s Haus der Kunst with a breathtaking collage of 9,000 children’s backpacks, a work entitled Remembering, inspired by the victims of Sichuan. For a prestigious international art show in 2007, he flew in 1,001 Chinese citizens to the small German town of Kassel, a partinstallation, part-performance art project called “Fairytale.” Elsewhere he exhibits a deceptive levity, such as his “Study of Perspective” series of photographs in which he raises a middle finger in front of FROM TOP This month Taschen releases The Artist Activist; each edition is signed by Ai and wrapped in landmarks including the Eiffel a silk scarf reproduction of Ai’s work Straight.

Follow Her Lead Rosetta Getty elevates the everyday uniform with the launch of her sophisticated womenâ€™s line BY MOLLY CREEDEN
Pleat-back coat, $2,400, and Scarf gown, $2,800.
EDITED BY SAMANTHA TRAINA
<< Rosetta Getty’s eponymous new fashion line was born from a conundrum common to most women: the challenge of leaving the house in the morning in an outfit that also suits a cocktail party later that night. “I’ve often struggled to find clothing that transitions seamlessly from one event to the next,” says the mother of four, wife of actor Balthazar Getty, philanthropist and fixture on L.A.’s red carpets. “From a school meeting to a board meeting to a black-tie event, I wanted to make clothing for today’s woman, which addresses the need for a truly seasonless jacket or a really great pair of trousers that look just as good and appropriate at 10 p.m. as they do at 9 a.m.” Getty’s line, which launches with Fall 2014, is a bit tomboy with a soft feminine finish. Bathrobe coats (Getty’s new staple), poplin shirts, button-downs and column dresses are done in fabrics like cashmere blends and bonded satin, accented with shaved mink and fox furs. Silhouette was also top of mind as Getty designed, and it’s evident in the line’s manifold surprises: pants with an apron overlay that twist on the hip, beautifully done Bermuda shorts with a tailored, roomy curve, and inventive but functional pleats everywhere. Getty previously helmed two other fashion endeavors— children’s collection Rosetta Millington and bespoke line Riser Goodwin—but this effort marks her first in ready-to-wear, and perhaps the one closest to her own sartorial mores. The L.A. native wanted to return to fashion once her children were school-age. “My life is about balance,” she says—and so is her style.

ne doesn’t get to be the face of Dior without a perfectionoriented regimen in her pocket. Actress Natalie Portman, who’s currently editing her directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, and appears in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, due out this year, swears by “a vegan diet, no coffee and lots of water.” If you don’t possess her ascetic dedication, the new Diorskin Star collection, a range of foundations and concealers in 14 shades, aims to deliver comparable radiance. It’s all thanks to a satisfyingly scientific-sounding Light Pulsion Complex—a formula comprising hollow silica beads designed to capture and diffuse light for that glowy effect, and immortelle, paquerette and licorice extracts that work in tandem to even out skin irregularities. The results promise nothing less than lensready flawlessness, so that you can share Portman’s disposition: “I am comfortable in my skin,” she says. dior.com. •

Centered Downtown L.A. springs forth with a new outpost for the mind, body and soul
was driving through the Arts District when I had this ‘aha’ moment of ‘We have to move here and make this happen,’” explains Jared Stein of the trip when he and his girlfriend, Kimberly Helms, first envisioned The Springs, an all-in-one, health-and-fitness oasis complete with a raw/vegan restaurant, organic juice bar, yoga studio and holistic wellness center. Stein and Helms had spent years living in New York working behind-the-scenes on Broadway shows before moving to Los Angeles in October 2012 with the hopes of creating a coffee shop-like outpost for Arts District residents—but focused on health and wellness rather than triple espressos and sugary scones. “The idea was: What if instead of walking to the corner to the juice bar, then riding your bike to the yoga studio, then going somewhere else for a massage, all of these things existed under one roof?” explains Stein. Helms describes the building itself, which previously housed a paper supply company, as a Garden of Edenlike swathe in the factory-filled district. Designed by Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Rudolph of Design, Bitches, the 13,800-square-foot space is filled with ecofriendly furniture crafted from materials like recycled wood and pressed paper pulp, reclaimed white oak floors and repurposed CMA blocks for planters that add to the natural aesthetic without departing from the location’s industrial surroundings. “We wanted it to feel like you’re stepping through a space in the Arts District, not that the space was plopped down in it,” Helms says. Next to the entrance is a 92-seat restaurant, where dishes are made using fresh, seasonal produce. A vegetarian since the age of 12, Stein says that the purpose of the eatery is to answer a need

for alternative, wholesome fare. “People go to McDonald’s because that’s what they know and what’s easy,” he says. “If we create more places where healthy food is an option, I really believe people will make that choice.” The duo pegged chef Ian Martin (M.A.K.E., Planet Raw) to oversee the ever-changing menu, which will exclusively feature raw/vegan dishes—not to mention organic beers and keg wine. The 100 percent organic juice bar, described as “a speakeasy for juices,” will serve rare fruit-and-veggie combinations in ecoconcious glass bottles plus made-to-order smoothies and quick meals. Past the whirl of the blenders, Hawaii native Gloria Baraquio will manage two yoga studios with classes ranging from power flow and kundalini to yoga dance and restorative. Rounding out the oasis is an on-site wellness center offering a variety of massages (including Swedish, deep tissue and hot stone), holistic treatments such as gravity-based colon hydrotherapy to rid the body of toxins, Reiki energy sessions and detox programs by certified practitioners handpicked by Stein and Helms—plus a pop-up shop boasting natural skin-care products and handcrafted goods from Oakland’s Atomic Garden. While The Springs will extend full-fledged memberships for the die-hard yogi/vegan/juicer/detoxers, both Stein and Helms say it’s more about creating community than prescribing a single dogma for healthy living. “We’re not trying to convert everybody to veganism,” laughs Stein. But once you walk inside and give it a try, you may just be convinced. 608 Mateo St., L.A.; thespringsla.com. •

or Stacy Jacobsen, it’s not if you build it but before you build it that she will come. And during, and after. With her petite frame, long mane of strawberry-blond hair and accent bearing traces of a childhood in San Diego and Montana, this Santa Monica resident is surprisingly bold. As a designer, she favors the construction and installation step of the design/build process. Her strength is finishes—collaborating with architects to adjust plans with unusual materials. A glass catwalk, handpainted lavastone backsplash, mosaics, rift-sawn wood—surfaces are both her art and her obsession, she confesses. “I think the driving force behind the different designs are the amazing tiles and materials we continuously discover,” she says. “We have worked on roughly 50 baths this past year alone. No two baths are alike.” Not bad for someone who used to work in ad sales for Hearst Publications. About a dozen years ago, her father-in-law, a homebuilder, taught her “the nuts and bolts of construction,” she says. Over time, she slowly built that education and developed a deep, enthusiastic knowledge of the market. “It just kind of evolved from there. I never really looked back.” Most recently, she split her business into design firm SJ Studio and interior design showroom Atelilou. “I found products I wanted to purchase for clients that I couldn’t find in the States, and I felt like so many CONTINUED ON PAGE 216

hough his boyish grin and nerdy specs might suggest otherwise, Paul Vincent Wiseman founded The Wiseman Group in 1980. Decades in design later, Wiseman is more in demand than ever, and TWG celebrates with a new book that illustrates his passion for classicism and craft. Inner Spaces: Paul Vincent Wiseman & The Wiseman Group ($75, Gibbs Smith), by Brian D. Coleman, features photography by Matthew Millman and forewords by Frank O. Gehry and Paul Goldberger. The 20 residences pictured demonstrate finesse with every artistic inch of real estate, whether custom-dyed fabrics, drapery trim, handloomed silk carpets, sculpted hardware or unique lighting. His practice works in tandem with the brilliant work of local muralists and makers, from Evans & Brown and Stancil Studios to Tuell & Reynolds. Perhaps their success is in part due to such a collaborative spirit. “The designer is no longer a dictator, and there is a heightened awareness of design and architecture today, so our clients come to the table with a great deal of knowledge and a very refined taste level,” Wiseman explains. “No one wants a period room anymore. Fine antiques today are used almost as sculpture or art, as part of the mix in a very eclectic way—not a museum-like statement.” Highlights of the vivid portfolio include two Legorretadesigned family compounds, a Tudor residence with modern art on the S.F. Peninsula, Wiseman’s superb retreat in Marin County, a high-rise apartment in Chicago, an art-filled flat in New York and dramatic residences of noted art collectors in Pacific Heights, all individual and customtailored. The firm also works on the interiors of jets, lake cabins and country lodges. “My three rules of good design are appropriateness, appropriateness, appropriateness,” says Wiseman. “I don’t do trendy. Furnishings should be right for the location, the architectural style, the purpose, and the people and their lives.” For Wiseman, the goal will always be to design a residence curated precisely for the client.

t The Restaurant at Meadowood, no fork, carrot, glaze or rabbit is safe from philosophical or aesthetic examination. Chef Christopher Kostow is developing his exacting way, and that’s the tao of it. “Specificity is sort of like the Platonic form,” he says. “If you’re doing something right, it is what it is—if we’re getting the best squab, the best possible producer, using the best technique. That becomes specific to us.” He points to their signature of cooking potatoes in beeswax. A recipe emerged when the block was left over from a tutorial. “With its hint of sweetness, we wanted to do something earthy. There’s some really fresh acidity to sorrel. That’s pretty much all it is.” Likewise, they cook with clay because it has culinary value. “Once we know they exist as part of this landscape, we feel compelled to make them part of the story,” he writes. Kostow began as a philosophizing teenage fry cook in Highland Park, Ill. (“elbow-deep in seasoned flour and raw chicken”), and slowly climbed the ladder: working 9 a.m. to midnight in France; handpicking produce at Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe for Trey Foshee; sous cheffing under Daniel Humm at San Francisco’s Campton Place. He lived in a prefab house behind tiny Chez TJ in Mountain View and garnered much attention for his two Michelin stars, all before he decamped to Meadowood and won three. Over the past seven years, he has transformed the resort into a culinary destination. He now has a wife, Martina, a daughter, Daisy, and a book. A New Napa Cuisine isn’t your typical restaurant cookbook. Shot by Peden+Munk and filled with essays, it’s a documentary-like glimpse—mornings in the light-dappled garden; foraging and frogging; designing pottery. Development began about four years ago, when Kostow set out to unearth Napa’s stories, people and places. CONTINUED ON PAGE 216

ew occasions call for the elusive mulberry. After all, they’re messy, the bushes are prickly and the yield is low. But when linen designer and respected tastemaker Heather Taylor started planning a dinner with Helen Johannesen, Animal group wine director, Taylor says one of the first calls was to florist Holly Vesecky (Hollyflora): “Her mom lives on a huge farm in Ojai. They picked them the day before and drove them down.” The duo gathered their creative posse for a preview of Johannesen’s new shop, situated within Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook’s forthcoming project (across from Animal in Los Angeles). “Helen’s” will offer retail wine and delivery as well as indulge her passion for educating collectors. (Don’t let her sandy curls and fascination with fashion fool you; this exuberant sommelier has a deep knowledge that goes far beyond marquee labels.) Beneath twinkling lights in Taylor’s ivy-enclosed backyard, a farmhouse table was set with Taylor’s stylish embroidered placemats and Heath Ceramics plates. Hollyflora arrangements mingled dahlias and pale-pink pomegranates, while soft white sheepskin protected against the evening chill. And you know you’re in for something special when star potter Adam Silverman lends platters and pitchers from his personal collection. Though Trois Mec spin-off Petit Trois would open the following day, Dotolo arrived to cook family-style dishes from the yet-to-be-named venture with Johannesen: an Italian concept that will focus on colorful salads, pastas and gluten-free options. Conversation drifts in and out as salads circle the table—among them a green garlic Caesar with market lettuces, Idyllwild cheese and bread crumbs; chili-flecked beets and oranges; and a cazuela brimming with gluten-free eggplant marinara. After vintage Champagne and snappy Bandol, Johannesen introduces a trio of complex whites from France, Italy and Austria. “They’re hot to buy—not just to drink but to collect,” she says of a chenin blanc from a producer she recently visited in Saumur—one whose small parcels are aged, she recounts, in a cellar where troglodytes once resided. She swirls. “It’s got an electric, subtle honey coating, so different from Burgundy, which is so much more classical.” Later, as friends linger around the fire pit, the cheesecake disappears, the mountain of berries dwindles, the Gevrey-Chambertin and Savigny-lès-Beaune drop below shoulder. All, of course, telltales of a most successful evening. animalrestaurant.com. •

express exactly how I am feeling at this moment...Above all, immense joy at stylistic expression is at one with the Louis Vuitton philosophy. The proud legacy. The inspiring history that looks to the future and to the world. The quest for authenticity and innovation. The desire for timelessness. Does not every designer ultimately seek to create something timeless? I salute the work of Marc Jacobs, whose legacy I wholeheartedly hope to honour. And I thank you for being here to share this moment with me.

or Chicago-born singer/songwriter/producer Lia Ices, the idea of “going west” not only inspired novel feelings of freedom, positivity and openness, but a new album as well, Ices, due out this month. “I want people to feel good when they listen to these songs...for the album to take them somewhere—that’s what it does for me,” she says. During the 10-track LP’s two-year production, Ices and her twin brother, Eliot, went to new depths to achieve the sound they wanted—experimenting with everything from hip-hop beats and Pakistani pop to sympathetic magic—and new heights as Ices traveled between her previous home in Hudson Valley, N.Y., to a recording studio in Atlanta, to rice paddy fields in Japan as well as to Woodstock, Ga., Los Angeles and, finally, Northern California. “Needless to say,” she explains, “it was an epic journey.” Though she has settled for a moment in Sonoma with boyfriend Andrew Mariani of Scribe Winery, whom she oft “helps with wine drinking,” Ices won’t stay still for long with upcoming shows in New York, L.A. and San Francisco along with a U.S. tour with Phantogram starting later this month, then, she adds, “to Europe, hopefully Japan and outerspace.” Available on itunes.com; liaices.com.

Artist Mary Weatherford is having a moment. And if the fact that her luminous Flashe oil paintings appear in both LACMA’s new group show, “Variations,” and MoMa’s forthcoming December survey, “The Forever Now,” doesn’t convince you of this, then perhaps the raves she received for her recent solo show, “Los Angeles,” at the David Kordansky Gallery (see “New Digs,” below) will. Need further proof? At press time, she was unreachable at an artist retreat in Mexico. And the surest sign that someone is in demand is that they’re off the grid. The Ojai native has been prolific since the ’80s, but it was her 2012 “Bakersfield Project,” a series of abstract, color-swathed canvases that take cues from modernist Helen Frankenthaler and are finished with neon strips of light, that electrified the art world. The pieces prompted Robert Faggen, Claremont McKenna College’s director of the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies, to tap Weatherford for an on-campus installation: a 117-by-234-inch mural (due to be christened with an open-to-the-public event on Sept. 16). Weatherford began by steeping herself in her setting. “It’s a long process of assessing the place and reacting to it,” Faggen observes. “She’s playing with paint and light in a way that’s magical—the neon is not about nostalgia,” he adds.

ike other artistic power couples—Charles and Ray Eames, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, or even John Lennon and Yoko Ono—the seminal work of Bob Stocksdale (1913-2003), the father of American wood turning, and master fiber artist and weaver Kay Sekimachi (1926-) proved that they’re better together. After World War II, Stocksdale, who grew up on a farm in Indiana, moved to California and bought a Victorian duplex in South Berkeley where he set about creating seemingly impossible-to-turn bowls and furniture of diseased and rare woods. Sekimachi began her creative career with origami and art classes offered while her family was in a Japanese internment camp, eventually attending California College of the Arts and becoming a beacon of Berkeley’s contemporary fiber movement. This month, the Mingei International Museum in San Diego hosts “In the Realm of Nature,” a retrospective look at the couple’s 30-year artistic dialogue. Sekimachi’s translucent sculptural hangings and room dividers, vibrant scrolls and delicate boxes of skeletal leaves are seen amongst Stocksdale’s wooden masterpieces. As curator Signe Mayfield says, “It’s a true marriage of form.” Sept. 13; mingei.org. •

HAILEE’S COMET Effortlessly embracing the world of international celebrity, actress Hailee Steinfeld’s success story was written in the stars

HAILEE STEINFELD’S OPENING GAMBIT IS “MY DOG ATE MY RAY-BANS...”
The actress is explaining the origins of her replacement peach Stella McCartney shades over a burger and fries at her local neighborhood grill in Agoura Hills, and the effect is part studious 17-year-old (whose mom is shopping next door at Restoration Hardware), part Academy Award-nominated style star—both of which apply. She’s fresh from the Baton Rouge set of Pitch Perfect II—“It was like being in a sorority!” she gushes—and is, in her words, “pausing for breath” during a rare moment of calm in the lead-up to the release of a staggering six features coming out in the next 12 months. Born and bred in Thousand Oaks, Steinfeld knew she wanted to be an actress from the age of 8, and got her start modeling for Gap, Guess and Nike. After a student film debut in Cameron Sawyer’s short She’s a Fox, her breakthrough came in 2010 when she beat 15,000 other 13-year-olds in an open audition to be cast as the fiercely stubborn frontier gal Mattie Ross out to avenge her father’s death in the Coen brothers’ remake of the 1969 film True Grit. The performance earned Steinfeld an Oscar nod, and was the creative turning point directly responsible for her hefty upcoming slate: She stars alongside Brit Marling in The Keeping Room, an indie thriller, which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival in September, followed by Pitch Perfect II scheduled for a May release. Then there is the coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints with Ethan Hawke, the action-adventure-comedy Barely Lethal with Jessica Alba, the action thriller Term Life with Vince Vaughn, and the American Western drama The Homesman with Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. Given Steinfeld’s workload, it’s not surprising that she’s gasping for air. “The world went on without me,” she says. “I need my friends to fill in the gaps, my dad to take me on bike rides and my mom to steal my shoes!” The innocent, devoutly normal wish list has an ever-so-slightly jarring effect, and not just because starlets of Steinfeld’s age tend to be grouped into black-and-white categories—the ones falling out of limos and marked for off-the-rails watch, and the ones who aren’t. Her groundedness is noteworthy for its extrawholesome quality. This is a girl who loves to clock some “me” time in her bedroom (which she characterizes as the color of Neapolitan ice cream), whose current to-do list contains items such as “investigate YogaGlo” and “work on Pinterest mood board”—the latter of which is filled with decidedly timeless and upstanding muses: Kate Middleton, Jackie O. and Grace Kelly. “I love how fashion history repeats itself,” she says. “How the same styles re-emerge in different incarnations.” Steinfeld’s off-camera girlishness is complemented by a star-is-born presence on the red carpet akin to that of contemporaries like Elle Fanning and Emma Watson. (“I love how she puts an edge on things,” she says admiringly of Watson.) Steinfeld began working with stylist Karla Welch (who dresses Zooey Deschanel, Olivia Wilde and Michelle Williams) during her 2011 Oscar nomination—the custom Marchesa gown the pair selected for the ceremony helped to solidify her place on the fashion map. “It was very princess-y and pink,” she remembers fondly. For the Golden Globes the same year she wore a cream, floor-length sheath gown by Prabal Gurung that got her on Vanity Fair’s “Best Dressed List”—the only frock in a sea of options that didn’t look “too old” for the then 14-year-old. (The choice led to an ongoing friendship with Gurung, who took Steinfeld as his date to the Met Ball this year.) She was embraced by the industry like a greyhound out of the gate: tapped to be the face of Miu Miu in 2011—she has become a front-row fixture at the brand’s shows—and awarded Max Mara’s Face of the Future Award in 2013.

SONIC O O M B BY EMILY HOLT PHOTOGRAPHED BY HEDI SLIMANE
HEDI SLIMANE IS AS MUCH the provocative
genius behind French fashion house Saint Laurent as he is an impassioned visual diarist of California’s underground rock scene. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2007—in an effort to focus on his photography after leaving his home and job in Paris as Dior Homme’s creative director—the intensely private and music-obsessed French designer, who controversially relocated the Saint Laurent design studio from Paris to L.A. in 2012, has captured with his camera scores of bona fide stars including Courtney Love and Brian Wilson as well as indie acts including Orange, CA-based songwriter Rex Osterkamp and Allah-Las lead singer Miles Michaud. (Haven’t heard of those last two yet? If Slimane’s track record for coolspotting West Coast-bred upand-comers like It songstress Sky Ferreira is any indication, you will soon.) This month, a carefully curated selection of Slimane’s romantic, raw portraits of rock ’n’ roll rebels C 176
goes on display at the Fondation Pierre BergéYves Saint Laurent in Paris. Titled “Sonic,” the hauntingly beautiful exhibit, which will be published in a book of the same name, features black-and-white prints of artists like genderbender Ariel Pink in his unadorned Echo Park living room, San Francisco musician Chris Owens (who also played a large role in the designer’s 2011 solo show at MOCA), and twins Wyatt and Fletcher Shears of band The Garden who have moonlighted as models for Saint Laurent’s men’s shows in Paris. (More California love: Slimane has commissioned talents like L.A. punk group No Age and Bay Area rocker Sam Flax to compose his exhibition and runway soundtracks.) Slimane blurs the boundaries of fashion, music and photography to the point of decimation, so that all that is left is his singular, glorious universe. Lucky us that, for now, the center of that galaxy is right here. Sept. 18, 2014Jan. 11, 2015; fondation-pb-ysl.net. •

JOHN ESHAYA’S SECOND HOME IN PALM SPRINGS IS ONE PLAYFUL PAD BY HEATHER JOHN FOGARTY PHOTOGRAPHED BY DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN

F A SPACE CAN SUM up its owner’s personality, and fashion and interiors philosophy all at once, John Eshaya’s Palm Springs living room-cum-roller skating rink, where Russell Young and Andy Warhol lithographs line the walls, is where high fashion collides with comfort and anything goes. “I often wear roller skates around the pool,” Eshaya says. “One day I had them on and started skating around the living room. Now I use it as a TV room and a roller skating room!” You could say Eshaya has been on a roll for some time now. The Los Angeles-based fashion veteran spent 24 years at Fred Segal Melrose, climbing the ranks from salesperson to creative director and buyer, and discovering labels, many of which were founded by friends, such as Citizens of Humanity, Juicy Couture, Trina Turk and Vince, before leaving the company in 2008 to focus solely on his cult T-shirt and denim line, JET (John Eshaya Tees)—a favorite with the likes of Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie and Reese Witherspoon. When he’s not dressing his loyal celebrity clientele, Eshaya escapes to his midcentury desert retreat, a shrine to many of the designers and artists who have influenced his career. “I’ve been coming to Palm Springs since high school,” Eshaya says. “For me, it’s synonymous with vacation. It equals fun.” Eshaya first laid eyes on his digs while driving around the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood almost a decade ago. “The minute I saw it, we were in escrow,” says the designer, who also owns a bungalow in Larchmont Village. “The gentleman who built the house in 1964 was a Japanese holistic doctor and had a very chic, modernist Eastern aesthetic. I fell in love with the original terrazzo around the pool—only two houses in Palm Springs have one.” Eshaya’s casual aesthetic, the designer calls it “comfortable and unintimidating,” is punctuated with exuberant splashes of color and pop art. “All the color gives the house a casual summer vacation feel,” he says. Signed Warhol lithographs, including his prized Elizabeth Taylor, hang in the living room, with additional works from the artist throughout the house. “Warhol was the first artist I really loved, and now I’m grown-up with the real thing!” Eshaya says, with wonder. The designer’s art collection also includes works by Banksy, David LaChapelle,
Takashi Murakami and Robert Rauschenberg, but a Warhol print of Marilyn Monroe that hangs above a Union Jack-painted bureau in the entryway stands out as his personal favorite. “I found Marilyn on top of a trash can in New York,” he says. “Who would throw that away? Whether it costs $70,000 or it’s free, it’s still art.” Eshaya embraces a similarly high-low approach with his furnishings, mixing flea market finds (vintage sculptures and crystal chandeliers) with runway-endorsed pieces. “I go crazy when a fashion house does a home collection,” he says, citing his cache of 30 Pucci towels, pillows and a rare rug that Laudomia Pucci (daughter of Emilio Pucci) commissioned for Eshaya. He also collects Chanel, Missoni and Gucci Home accents. In fact, nearly all of his furniture has a six-degrees-of-fashion provenance. Around the pool, a Missoni for Target sectional sits beneath the shade of a bottlebrush tree. Inside, juxtaposed against a Union Jack-painted bureau in the dramatic mirrored entryway, two Marie Antoinette-style chairs are upholstered in a camouflage print covered with Declaration of Independence graffiti that fashion designer Stephen Sprouse created for Knoll Textiles. In the dining room, a photo of Naomi Campbell wearing an Alaïa houndstooth dress inspired Eshaya to recover the set of vintage Eero Saarinen dining chairs in a matching cotton fabric. A tower of orange Hermès boxes stretches 8 feet high in a corner of the TV room. “I just started stacking,” Eshaya says. “One year it was my Christmas tree, and I draped lights all over it. Now it’s a sculpture.” Eshaya hopes to spend more weekends this fall recharging in Palm Springs following a particularly hectic spring. In April, he opened his flagship JET boutique on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood, which features the JET label as well as vintage accessories from Chanel and Louis Vuitton, and the designer’s first capsule collection of menswear. “The idea behind JET has always been to make a woman’s favorite piece, whether it’s the sweater she always wears or the first T-shirt she grabs,” he says. “JET is really a California lifestyle line: a classic, comfortable look. It’s like this house—it has cool pieces, but even if you’re wet out of the pool, it’s OK to sit on a Tom Ford for Gucci chair.” •
FROM ABOVE In the living room, a Warhol above the fireplace plays off the Tom Ford for Gucci rug. Eshaya powder coated the existing pine cabinets in the kitchen in gray, and hung a painting of Madonna as Evita above the sink. OPPOSITE The mirrored entryway acts as a backdrop for Eshaya’s pop art collection.
“I’VE BEEN COMING TO PALM SPRINGS SINCE HIGH SCHOOL,” ESHAYA SAYS. “FOR ME, IT’S SYNONYMOUS WITH VACATION. IT EQUALS FUN.”

Photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank frames up a series of hotly tipped talent, and shares exclusive images from her new book, Young Hollywood By Melissa Goldstein “HOLLYWOOD IS MOVEMENT,” says photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank. “It’s about going somewhere, becoming someone and arriving.” To underline her point, the Vogue alumna chose an image of a daisy-swim-capped Isabel Lucas—poised to drive off into the credits-rolling sunset in a vintage Corvette—as the cover and opening statement for her new book, Young Hollywood ($75, Assouline). A collection of saturated portraits of emerging talents snapped in heritage-laden, Los Angeles-area locales (from a luminescent Dakota Johnson amidst the roses of the historic Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills, to a Barbarella-esque Amber Heard dwarfing the city skyline at the iconic Stahl House in the Hollywood Hills), the momentous project took shape soon after Swanson Frank’s relocation to L.A. from New York two years ago. The photographer already had a hit to her name with 2012’s celebrated title American Beauty, which features personal friends including Marissa Mayer and Jenna Lyons, but amassing a cast of next-big-things proved a different beast entirely. “I had no experience in the industry,” she says. “But fear can be motivating if it propels you instead of paralyzes you. And the actresses I shot were in the same space in their careers—running on hope—so we shared a powerful common ground.” Fashion designer Michael Kors fell in love with Swanson Frank’s initial concept, and signed on as a sponsor. “All of the images have this realness to them. They don’t feel staged; they feel captured,” says Kors, who wrote the foreword and opened his archive to provide much of the wardrobe. “And yet they are still out of reach—which I think is what we want from Hollywood.” It’s Swanson Frank’s ability to synthesize the Technicolor-tinged fantasy with the naked ambition and vulnerability of her subjects that comes through. •

SUSIE CRIPPEN’S RUSTIC HANCOCK PARK ABODE IS A WELCOME EXPRESSION OF THE FASHION DESIGNER’S SINGULAR TAKE ON CALIFORNIA CASUAL
BY AMELIA FLEETWOOD PHOTOGRAPHED BY PAUL RAESIDE C 00
The industrial wood forms are some of the few things that Crippen brought from her previous home. Stilnovo light from JF Chen. OPPOSITE Refinished Louis the 14th-style sofa by Channon Roe (upholstered in 1950s French army fabric) mixes perfectly with a weathered metal coffee table from C 00 Obsolete in Venice.
HEN SUSIE CRIPPEN, THE CO-FOUNDER and former creative director of J Brand jeans, now creative director of Crippen, stepped into her Hancock Park house for the first time, she instantly knew she was home. “Get ready to fall in love!” warned the realtor, as she opened the front door of the Susie Crippen secluded, turnkey, 1913 bungalow set back from the street, surrounded and hidden by groves of bamboo. Crippen was immediately attracted to the open floor plan, exposed wood beam ceilings and the light and airy feel (the house was remodeled in the 1980s). She was also struck by the small-town vibe of the Hancock Park neighborhood with its old-fashioned, wide, tree-lined streets, strolling couples and plenty of kids on bikes. Crippen moved in in 2008 and set about making the house her own with the help of her good friend of more than 15 years, design consultant Channon Roe of In the Field Interiors. The two had a mutual friend, and actually lived across the street from each other when they first met. A man of many hats (surfer, actor, designer), Roe, a native Californian, was always keenly interested in interior design. He worked for family friend and famed designer Michael S. Smith in his early days in Los Angeles. At first Roe was hired just to remodel the downstairs powder room, which really served as a barometer for their compatibility in taking on the house in its entirety. It was a success and from there they set their goals: to instill complete calmness into the house, making it comfortable, livable, workable and an unpretentious place to live. “Working with Channon opened my eyes to a whole other level of creativity,” Crippen explains. “Designing clothes is an expression of my aesthetic, pure and simple, which is very similar to the way [we collaborated].” Roe’s unique approach of steering away from any one specific style reads both eclectic and cohesive. Drawing from his early influence of California beach life, he tends to incorporate his favorite iconic time periods in design, namely the ’60s and ’70s. He says, “Mixing the high design and functionality of these midcentury modern pieces with some much older European elements, the house begins to take shape and a great story can be told.” Roe also incorporated natural, earthy elements: cowhides, antlers, leather, weathered metal and plenty of wood. He included Crippen’s lucky number four (the day she was born) throughout the house. He also loves the element of surprise: In her sunroom, he presented her with a sofa by Brazilian designer Percival Lafer as a fait accompli. Crippen was shocked and reluctant at first, but now she admits that it is her favorite thing in the entire house other than her two dogs. Crippen, wearing her favorite, vintage Levi’s, and gray cashmere sweater by Soyer says: “This project was about bringing my taste to life. This house really does look and feel like me!” These days she is hard at work, collaborating with her design team on her new line. Meetings take place at the dining room table, and even the back deck and front porch are jokingly dubbed “conference rooms.” The garage has been turned into the Crippen office/design studio. The house, in its inspiring, tranquil splendor, has actually come to represent all things Crippen—reflecting the clothes she makes and how she lives. “Good design starts with a conversation, and ends as a physical manifestation of that conversation,” says Crippen. “It’s a fascinating process, living in a space and watching it come alive around me. I get to live and work in beautiful surroundings. I am so appreciative of that.” •

She displays them in a tiny Santa Monica showroom. The ocean-breeze shoebox off Main Street is decorated in a rather chic black-and-white scheme. Of note, there’s an Adnet-riff circular mirror by Vroonland & Vaandrager, trimmed with glossy, softball-size black beads; and Nobody & Co.’s ingenious boxy bibliochaise covered with slots to hold more than 300 books. (Jacobsen spotted the piece in a Muriel Brandolini book and now represents the designer.) These are big statements for such a small space. Jacobsen says, “I know what I like.” sj-studio.com; atelilou.com. •

disconnected. Rather, they are the collective spirit of Old Man Niebaum, of the Chinese laborers whose hands dug the tunnels that still lie beneath Meadowood.” The recipes aren’t for show, and fans have the opportunity to re-create memories from the hallowed restaurant. The canapés, such as the delicate teff pillow and the garden scrapbook, are not forgotten. Neither is the shaved abalone or sunchoke granola. Today, Kostow’s passion for designing with local artisans moves out of the restaurant. “Richard’s depth of knowledge and role as a maker of things lends a bit of historical perspective,” Kostow says of Pope Valley ceramicist Richard Carter. The duo, Eric VanderMolen and Sarah Lonsdale of Remodelista have collaborated on a ceramics line, Carter|Kostow, available this fall. “Things that are happening now, like Carter|Kostow, are really the last page from that [aha] moment.” Even so, Kostow continues to be charmed. “This morning, I was with my forager. We found a road I’d never been on. Napa might have a thin veneer but it has a lot of depth—once you find those turns.” christopherkostow.com. •

Not that she takes the art of dress-up, or herself, too seriously. “It’s an opportunity to play,” she quips. And to underline her perspective on the whole thing, she reveals that her own closet is so down-to-earth it’s communal: “Home to my father’s suits and my mother’s shoes,” she says. (The only family member not admitted is the Ray-Ban chewer: her cockerchon puppy, Bruno.) “I get attached to very little,” she adds, on the topic of apparel, though it’s obvious she clings tightly to less tangible things. “Child actors come off as work being their life and doing it 24/7, but I still have those days where it’s totally, like, whatever: shopping, movies, adventures,” she says. To measure her success on this front, look no further than her Twitter account: “My Saturday night consists of ice cream and a one thousand piece puzzle,” she writes. “Yours?” •

his experiences with a broader audience,” says Haines, who in a 2011 interview with The Bay Citizen likened Ai to a “cross between the Dalai Lama and Bill Murray.” The artist’s desire for a global conversation about freedom, creativity and social justice chimed with FOR-SITE’s belief that art can stimulate a dialogue about such issues, she says. She raised $3 million and pulled the entire show together in just nine months, a complex challenge “when the artist is prohibited from visiting the site,” she adds. Ai, meanwhile, is confident his ideas will come across, though never at the expense of his art. “Being an artist, you have to have a skill to make people understand your message,” Ai says. “At the same time, you want ordinary people who understand the show (to know) it’s art, it’s not just a political statement but an experience through feelings, through shapes, colors, structure. (It’s) important to carry these essential ideas about freedom so that everybody, even children, can appreciate it. We have to make it beautiful, we have to make it fly.” Sept. 27, 2014-April 26, 2015; for-site.org. •

California CAPTURING THE GOLDEN STATE OF MIND
CAROLYN MURPHY FOR C’S PREMIERE ISSUE, SEPT. 2005 This month, we honor C’s 100th issue—and there’s nothing like a milestone to warrant a little reflection. Issue No. 1 was classic C : a day at the beach in Malibu with supermodel Carolyn Murphy and her daughter, Dylan Blue, playing together in the sand. “I wanted the sun, the surf, and a backyard for my daughter to play in,” says Murphy of her adopted hometown. Here’s to many more blue skies ahead.
