(Julianne’s Journey, page 66) New York–based English photographer Alexi Lubomirski has photographed stars including Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift for the covers of Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. In recent years, he has garnered attention for his work as official photographer to Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, during their engagement and wedding. For fall, he turned his lens on Julianne Moore. “She is one of those incredible subjects who possesses such beauty that it is difficult to take a bad picture of her,” says Lubomirski, who was thrilled to be back on set with his colleagues after a long hiatus. “The whole day, everybody was chatting as if they had not seen each other in years!”

E L I Z A B E T H S A LT Z M A N (Julianne’s Journey, page 66) Elizabeth Saltzman has called Julianne Moore a personal friend for years. “We have a great mutual friend in Tom Ford,” says Saltzman. So when the stylist, who counts Gwyneth Paltrow, Jodie Comer and Saoirse Ronan as celebrity clients, was asked to style Moore for the cover shoot, it was a no-brainer. “It was a cool silver lining moment during this crisis,” says Saltzman. “To have the opportunity to work with someone so insanely talented, caring, responsible and professional was so special. I felt lucky to be a part of it.”

DJ QUINTERO HAIR ST YLIST

(Julianne’s Journey, page 66) DJ Quintero has tamed the tresses of everyone from Charlize Theron to Reese Witherspoon. Quintero, who lives in New York, had worked with Julianne Moore many times before, but this was his first cover with her. “I don’t use a lot of products on her,” says Quintero. “I blew her hair out smooth and straight with some body and gave it the slightest bend toward the ends. I used Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream, Christophe Robin Intense Regenerating Balm and a little Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hair Spray.”

(The Boy in The Band, page 94) Victoria Stevens was so grateful to return to work after such a long hiatus, and shooting Zachary Quinto outdoors at a Hollywood estate was the perfect reentry. “Zachary came bounding in with his two gorgeous and wellbehaved pups, and this instantly made everyone feel at ease and welcome,” says the New Yorker, who has shot for New York Magazine, W and Vanity Fair. “We took our time scouting the location to find shots while listening to music by Al Green and Bill Medley.”

(Purity on Park, page 122) Swedish photographer Björn Wallander has photographed interiors for Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and House Beautiful. When the lens turned to shooting his friend Francisco Costa’s apartment, he was thrilled. “I love working with Francisco,” says Wallander. “I love how simple he makes things feel in his home, but when you look closely, all the objects and furniture are incredible and carefully picked.”

As DuJour’s Style Editor, Alexis Parente worked tirelessly while New York City was locked down to get the most coveted clothing, shoes, bags and jewelry for a myriad of fashion shoots. “Working from my apartment has definitely been a wild ride,” says Parente. “It has helped me to discover new ways of collaborating with the team and creative ways to approach fashion features.” So, what’s on her must-have list? The JW Anderson chain link–adorned bag shot for the Linked In feature.

(Second Skin, page 110) With strong attention to color and a graphic sensibility, photographer David Roemer’s images blend the fine line of natural texture and subtle perfection. For this fashion editorial, Roemer partnered with a frequent collaborator, stylist Paul Frederick. “We think and speak in the same visual language and we brought this shoot to life together,” says Roemer of shooting model Alicia Burke. “We knew she had the strength and charisma to make these images really powerful.”

arram, a new luxury boutique resort hotel in Montauk, boasts 96 guest rooms, a beachy café, a surf program and other amenities all inspired by the beach town of José Ignacio in Uruguay. “Marram combines the best of both worlds: the nature that makes Montauk unique and the culture that put it on the map,” Bridgeton CEO Atit Jariwala says of the property, which is on the ocean but within walking distance of town. In the mostly oceanfront guest rooms, an internal team alongside design firm Studio Tack employed white oak ceilings and hand-troweled plaster walls to create warmth, bronzed hardware to instill a sunbaked feel and simple jute rugs to soften the spaces. “The ocean is your fourth wall here,” says Jariwala. “We wanted guests to feel that they could transition effortlessly from the beach to their rooms.”

ix months into the pandemic, it still amazes me how much can be accomplished from the comfort of our homes. Luckily, for this issue, we were able to mount several safe, socially distanced photo shoots, including with two supremely talented actors. Our cover star is Academy Award–winning actress Julianne Moore, photographed by Alexi Lubomirski at Marram, a laid-back resort in Montauk. Moore is starring as Gloria Steinem in the new Julie Taymor film The Glorias, out now on Amazon Prime Video. Her frequent collaborators and friends, stylist Elizabeth Saltzman and makeup artist Gucci Westman, were luckily local, so we were able to cobble together an A-team that everyone felt comfortable with. Across the country in Los Angeles, Zachary Quinto, who leads the cast of the new Netflix film The Boys in the Band, was game for an intimate shoot at a California estate. He brought his dogs, and the crew spent a great day together (we chimed in on FaceTime, as one does these days). Since no one knows what the future holds (Moore put it best: “We just have to accept that we don’t know what’s happening with anything.”), we are so fortunate to have been able to produce these in-person shoots with pros like Lubomirski (his stunning new poetry and photography book, Talk to Me Always, is out this October), Victoria Stevens and David Roemer, which yielded stunning original imagery for our issue. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we did producing it.

he fall season means something different to everyone right now. For most of us, it means getting back to a “new normal” routine, and it marks the start of a new school year, whether in the classroom or virtually. As New Yorkers, it presents a chance for us to come together during these challenging times of uncertainty and social justice. In this issue of DuJour, I wanted to focus on important people with uplifting stories to tell—such as Julianne Moore, our stunning cover star. The Academy Award-winning actress and activist talks to us about playing Gloria Steinem in the new Julie Taymor biopic The Glorias, which I’m super excited about. With the reopening of retail, we have a lot of style updates to share with you. Some of our favorite brands such as Max Mara, Breitling and Dolce & Gabbana have either launched new boutiques, or have created beautiful new products worth the wear. Whether you’re watching the leaves change in Central Park or spending the day relaxing in the comfort of your home, this book is the perfect escape. Explore an exclusive interview with actor Zachary Quinto and a behind-the-scenes look into designer Ken Fulk’s latest home project, or take a virtual vacation within the pages of Assouline’s new book Paris Chic. Flip to our Cities section to see what’s happening in New York City, the Hamptons, Palm Beach, San Francisco and beyond.

Walk on the wild side this fall BY ALEXIS PARENTE

T

he natural world has always been an inspiration for one-of-a-kind timepieces. From hand-painted faces showcasing remarkable feathered birds to predators sculpted into bracelet straps, nature abounds on this season’s best watches. This season, Dior debuts a collection featuring a bee garnished with emeralds, sapphires, rubies, amethysts, tsavorite garnets and opals. Its wings are illuminated with precious stones, creating a f luttering illusion while the bee sits in a pavé white gold case. Van Cleef & Arpels’ Secret de Coccinelle watch showcases a ruby ladybird moving along a leaf fashioned out of tsavorite garnets and emeralds. The brand’s Mystery Set technique, a proprietary invisible mechanism, is on display here. In 2017, Hermès commissioned British artist Alice Shirley to design the Into the Canadian Wild silk scarf for Canada’s 150th

anniversary. Hermès Horloger then pulled inspiration from this scarf for its Arceau Into the Canadian Wild watches. The first model reveals Quebec’s emblem, the snowy owl, f lying amid the Northern Lights, while the other features a polar bear with its cub in the wild. Fabergé’s Compliquée Peacock timepiece originated from the jewel-and-crystal-embellished peacock egg made for Tsar Nicholas II in 1908. “The peacock feathers open and close as time moves steadily on, offering a whole new way to view the time,” says Fabergé’s timepiece director Aurélie Picaud. “It offers clients the beauty of a work of art on their wrist.” Constantly seeking inspiration from nature, French fine jewelry house Cartier uses the panther, its signature animal, in many of its renowned designs. Dressed up in diamonds and black lacquer, the cat makes the timepieces it adorns iconic. “No other creature or jewel is so indissolubly and emotionally linked to the stylish women of the 20th century, the 20th-century female ideal or the Cartier legend,” explains Pierre Rainero, the brand’s director of image, style and heritage. Chopard’s 2020 Red Carpet Collection consists of 73 haute joaillerie pieces, all dedicated to the raw beauty of nature and animals. For the brand’s co-president and artistic director, Caroline Scheufele, the natural world is an endless source of inspiration. “With the Owl Jewelry Watch, I wanted to bring to life a creature found in the natural world. But what is life without fantasy? So I added some sparkle to the owl’s eyes with a rainbow of dazzling sapphires.”

ounded by French Moroccan brothers Georges, Maurice, Armand and Paul Marciano in 1981, Guess was first known for its denim but soon evolved into a global fashion brand. The label garnered instant attention by featuring up-and-coming model Claudia Schiffer in a black lace bustier in a 1990 ad campaign. The model appeared in six campaigns between 1989 and 1991 and returned for the brand’s 30th anniversary. “Guess will always have a soft spot in my heart, and I’m excited that 23 years later, we can still work together so successfully,” Schiffer told WWD. Over the decades, Guess has amassed a roster of stellar actors, models and musicians to star in its campaigns, including Amber Heard, Drew Barrymore, Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Carla Bruni, winning the brand numerous Clio Awards. Chief creative officer Paul Marciano art directs the brand’s marketing and guides the creative vision. This includes the brand’s decision to use black-and-white images for its advertising as photographed by artists like Ellen von Unwerth, Wayne Maser and Herb Ritts. “I have been so blessed to have worked with many of the greatest fashion photographers and designers who have produced images which have been so important throughout my career, but that special combination with Ellen von Unwerth and Paul Marciano for Guess was amazing,” Naomi Campbell told WWD. In 1993, Marciano tapped young model Vickie Smith, who had been featured on the cover of Playboy, as the brand’s newest face. After her Guess debut, she changed her name to A nna Nicole Smith and her career exploded. Years later, Marciano spotted another young model who would go on to worldwide fame: Gigi Hadid. As a toddler, Hadid modeled for Guess Kids and, in 2012, the then-17-year-old model returned to front the brand’s main line. In June, music superstar J Balvin teamed up with the brand to create a 50-piece capsule collection inspired by his latest album, Colores. Jennifer Lopez also returned as the face of the brand this year after starring in its spring 2018 campaign. For fall, the brand is returning to its roots with its Guess Originals collection. Drawing inspiration from past styles such as 1990s-era denim cargo pants and retro track jackets, the capsule features 24 men’s pieces and 10 women’s pieces. The collection embraces a nostalgic energy that’s echoed in the shoot photographed by Sam Dameshek, with creative direction by the company’s director of brand partnerships, Nicolai Marciano.

e often forget that scalp is skin. We can’t see it, but indeed it is just as important as the skin on our faces and bodies. Now, skincare-grade ingredients are finally being added to haircare products. “Seasonal changes can always affect our skin, and the sweat, humidity and heat that summer brings with it can create a moist, warm environment on your scalp in which microbes, the bacteria that causes dandruff and irritation, thrive,” says Dr. Barbara Sturm, who recently launched her brand’s first product for the scalp. It’s important to note the positive effects a healthy scalp can have on hair’s strength, texture and appearance. “Hair that’s grown from an unhealthy scalp shows signs of roughness or breakage and in some cases, shine reduction, dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis.” Months spent swimming in a chlorinated pool or in salty ocean water can be harsh on the hair and scalp, so your scalp needs more TLC. “Fall is a good time to reset and develop a consistent haircare routine to repair the damage to our tresses and encourage stronger hair growth,” says Fable & Mane’s co-founder, Akash Mehta, a vegan, plant-based hair wellness line inspired by ancient Indian beauty secrets. The brand’s products feature ingredients like centella asiatica and adaptogenic ashwagandha to help the scalp microbiome adapt to changes in environment, internal hormonal changes and stress. Exfoliating the scalp is crucial to removing buildup and toxins from color treatments and styling products. “A balanced scalp microbiome is key for healthy hair,” says the brand’s other co-founder Nikita Mehta. “If one type of bacteria starts overpowering the rest, the balance of the scalp microbiome is thrown off, which can result in dry, fragile strands and possible hair loss.” Using products with silicone also causes damage to hair, so exfoliating the scalp should be done weekly to reboot the scalp.

“Until this point, not only have we not taken care of our scalp, we have essentially been feeding it a steady diet of junk food from starch-filled, drying and irritating dry shampoos to sulfate-laden formulas,” says Jamie O’Banion, founder and CEO of BeautyBio. “We are finally starting to remember that our skin doesn’t end at the hairline and, just as our facial skin loses its bounce and elasticity as collagen depletes with age, our scalp skin also experiences collagen loss and subsequent loss of hair volume, density and strength.” BeautyBio’s best-selling GloPRO microneedling facial roller device is debuting a scalp attachment for fall. “There is no better way to stimulate hair growth than forcing skin’s healing response through microneedling that is safe, easy and painless to do at home,” says O’Banion. The brand recommends using the device on the scalp at least three times a week to see improvement in hair density. The accompanying Healthy Scalp Serum (which boasts fortifying ingredients like loquat leaf, zinc and rosebay extract) should be used immediately following microneedling and can be used on its own as a daily scalp treatment. The microneedling attachment stimulates collagen and encourages a boost in hair density. “One of the most overlooked yet visible signals of aging is loss of hair density, luster and hairline definition,” says O’Banion. “A woman with thick, bouncy hair looks years younger than a woman of the same age with thin, lifeless hair.” “When you think about it, you use different creams and serums to treat and pamper the eyes, face, neck and décolleté, so the same applies for the scalp,” says the French colorist and haircare product line founder Christophe Robin. “I recommend using our Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt scrub once or twice a week, and in between, a gentle shampoo.” After achieving success with her skincare line Drunk Elephant, it was only a matter of time before the brand’s founder and CEO, Tiffany Masterson, tackled the scalp with a new line of fragranceand sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner and styling products. “The truth is that you can’t have good hair without a healthy scalp,” says Masterson, whose son and husband both struggle with long-term scalp issues. “It’s super important to exfoliate weekly to have a clean and healthy scalp.” Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub has both physical (plant cellulose beads) and chemical exfoliation in the form of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic or lactic acids) and BHAs (beta hydroxy acid, like salicylic acid). “Traditionally, haircare products have contained all sorts of ingredients, like silicones, that could disrupt the health of the scalp and cause buildup,” Masterson explains. “Our biocompatible line focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed and effective active ingredients.” Entrepreneur Nancy Twine founded plant-powered, vegan haircare line Briogeo to fix damaged locks. “I can see how the scalp can be overlooked—traditionally, we are accustomed to cleansing and conditioning just our hair,” says Twine. “This is why I created Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo. It is formulated with plant-based exfoliators that gently remove buildup from the scalp and coconut oil that moisturizes to help prevent a dry, flaky scalp.” She also recommends using a scalp exfoliator once or twice a week like her Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment, which is included in the brand’s Scalp Revival product set and features detoxifying Binchotan charcoal that draws out impurities from the scalp. “This formulation contains a cooling blend of tea tree, peppermint and spearmint oils that help reduce itchiness, irritation and inflammation,” she says.

After a gluttonous summer of palomas and pie, three experts weigh in on the body contouring and tightening treatments you need now BY NATASHA WOLFF

s we head into fall, the evidence of seven months of gym and workout class closures is hitting its peak. Sure, some devotees have been hitting the Peloton bike or running outside in 100 percent humidity, but if you’re like us and you’ve been hitting the rosé harder than the road, we’ve got you covered. “As excited as people are to continue their regular maintenance of wrinkle reducers, fillers and other services at the dermatologist’s office, clients are also inquiring about nonsurgical body contouring procedures to help them safely spot-treat these areas of concern on their body that they would normally treat at the gym,” says Upper East Side physician’s assistant Laura Dyer. The face isn’t over, but focusing on the body is a lot more popular these days. “Body contouring treatments are the go-to treatments right now,” says New York City dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman. “So many of my patients have gained weight during quarantine and are wanting to do treatments to help address problem areas. Plus, they are safe to do in the office because you can still wear a mask during your treatment.”

Licensed medical aesthetician Jeannel Astarita created beauty and body sculpting lab Just Ageless with a focus on anti-aging for the face and body contouring via topical and noninvasive treatments with a speciality in laser therapies. She’s known among well-heeled clients like Elle MacPherson as “the laser guru” and uses cutting-edge technology like Cutera truSculpt iD for fat reduction and skin tightening, truSculpt Flex for muscle development and excel V+ for skin rejuvenation. The truSculpt iD, which uses radio frequency technology on applicators to heat fat cells until they are eliminated by passing through the body naturally, delivers targeted fat reduction and skin tightening in one 15-minute treatment (treatments start at $1,000 for each session). “The completely customizable treatment is the gold standard when treating arms, localized pockets of fat and anywhere skin laxity is a concern,” says Astarita. The truSculpt Flex uses multidirectional stimulation technology to stimulate muscle contractions that could never be achieved by regular training at the gym (each 45-minute session costs around $750). You will feel noticeably stronger after your first treatment, but full results are more likely to be felt around 12 weeks.

Dyer specializes in aesthetic and clinical skincare and can’t get enough of CoolTone, Allergan’s newest noninvasive body contouring device, which uses magnetic muscle stimulation to penetrate into the muscle layers and induce involuntary muscle contractions. The body’s response to these contractions is to strengthen muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle conditioning on the abdomen, butt and thighs. “This is not a treatment for obesity or weight loss,” says Dyer. “The best candidate for this treatment should be at or around their ideal weight.” One painless 30-minute in-office session is the equivalent of 25,000–30,000 sit-ups. (Sessions are $500 each, with four recommended, twice weekly for two or three weeks.) It is the strongest muscle-building treatment that is cleared by the FDA. “It’s a great addition to at-home strengthbuilding workouts and cardio work,” says Dyer. “It spot-treats these stubborn, hard-to-tone areas.” Dyer likes to use CoolTone in conjunction with Allergan’s CoolSculpting machine, which first reduces fat. It works by freezing and breaking down fat cells beneath the skin and achieves great success on stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise. “Extra fat on an area like the abdomen can hide the muscular structure underneath,” says Dyer. “CoolSculpting addresses the fat and CoolTone targets the muscles. By first reducing the fat on the surface, you allow for the more prominent and defined abs to stand out after a series of CoolTone procedures.” For skin smoothing and cellulite reduction, Dr. Engelman loves the new Lumenis NuEra Tight device, which uses multifocal radiofrequency energy to stimulate all three aspects of the dermal comp one nt s— c ol l a g e n , e l a s t i n a nd e x t r a c e l lu l a r m a t r i x polysaccharides like hyaluronic acid. “When you increase the density of the dermis, it improves the overall smoothness of the skin structure, thus improving the appearance of cellulite,” she explains. This noninvasive, zero-downtime treatment uses multiple handpieces to heat up the skin’s surface and is best suited for upper arms, abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs. Dr. Engelman recommends four to six treatments (each session is $400–$800) for clients who have cellulite or skin laxity—think post-pregnancy, when abdominal skin has been stretched to extremes.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Gucci Westman

The makeup artist and cosmetics entrepreneur shares takes us through a jam-packed day in her shoes BY NATASHA WOLFF

A

fter years of working tirelessly as a makeup artist for celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence, Gucci Westman decided to launch her own cosmetics label, Westman Atelier, in 2018. “I was always fascinated by the dynamic between the making of products in a lab and then seeing how they work when you apply them to the skin,” says Westman, who did Julianne Moore’s makeup on this issue’s cover. The New York–based mother of three is known for her “no-makeup makeup” aesthetic and knew if she ever was going to produce her own line, it would have to be natural and in keeping with her personal healthful and mindful philosophies. “I’m so aware of what I eat; I grew up vegetarian and with a hyper-awareness to wellness,” she says. The clean luxury makeup brand began with a simple and efficient approach to covering skin’s imperfections while highlighting one’s best features. “To me, there’s nothing more beautiful than a healthy complexion,” says Westman. “For that perfect canvas, you really just need something to balance and even out your complexion, a pop of color to bring it to life, a little dewy highlight and a touch of warmth.” Westman also didn’t want to overwhelm customers with too many products and categories. “I really want our customers to see how you can amplify your natural beauty; it doesn’t have to be a total transformation.”

I refuse to miss out on new product innovation and technology just because I’ve chosen to create a ‘clean’ brand. —GUCCI WESTMAN

But Westman’s standards are high. “When we decide to launch a specific product or category, there’s a lot of thought, consideration and work that goes into it. Part of the biggest challenge is formulating our products to my high standards. I’m constantly asking formulators for alternatives to traditional ingredients. I’m constantly pushing them. I refuse to miss out on new product innovation and technology just because I’ve chosen to create a ‘clean’ brand,” she says. The brand’s best sellers include its Vital Skin Foundation, Baby Cheeks Blush Stick (Diaz loves the shades Lit and Poppet) and Super Loaded Tinted Highlight (Aniston is a big fan). So how does Westman use the line?


“I start by applying my Vital Skin Foundation with my Foundation Brush. I like to use a lighter shade under the eyes and in the T-zone, a darker shade around the perimeter, and then I blend the two together for more natural-looking skin. The creamy texture melts into skin, leaving it balanced and radiant. For warmth, I apply Beauty Butter Bronzer with the Powder Brush in a horizontal motion over my cheeks, eyelids, temples and forehead. Using the Blender Brush, I’ll sweep Super Loaded Tinted Highlight in Peau de Peche up my cheeks for instant cheekbones! For a pop of color, I’ll dab Baby Cheeks in Chouchette to the middle of my cheekbones in an oval shape and blend. For added dewiness, I’ll dab Lit Up on top of my cheekbones, in the inner corners of my eyes, and along the cupid’s bow. For the final lustrous touch, I’ll sweep on Eye Love You Mascara for super long, glossy lashes.” Below, Westman reveals her daily routine and rituals.

6:00 A.M. I generally wake up around this time. Some days I hit snooze, but before getting out of bed, I meditate using the Transcendental Meditation technique. 6:30 A.M. I start getting our two older kids up and I make breakfast. My youngest, Petal, goes to school a little later in the day, so I let her sleep in. Their favorites are blueberry pancakes, Nutella crepes and scrambled eggs with sliced avocado. I’ll make a shake for my husband using the Clean Daily Shake powder, wild blueberries, a banana, almond butter, oat milk and perhaps a few supplements. For myself, I generally have toasted gluten-free bread with almond butter, a touch of honey, blueberries and a homemade almond milk latte. While having breakfast, I’ll check my texts, emails and calendar. 8:00 A.M. If I don’t have a shoot or a meeting first thing, I like to make time to exercise; it’s so important for mental health! I love Taryn Toomey’s The Class. It resets my energy, is super destressing and helps me tackle the rest of my day.

9:00 A.M. I shower, do my makeup and get dressed for the day. No matter what the day holds, I have to wear foundation every day, which is why I made our Vital Skin Foundation Stick. It contains active ingredients at efficacy levels to calm, soothe and replenish my skin all day long. 10:00 A.M. I start checking in with our team. It’s amazing how we’ve grown! We’re still super small, but we’re really building a great foundation. I’ll test product and shade submissions, go over new product launches and review new R&D and packaging components. 1:00 P.M. If I’m home, I’ll make a healthy vegetarian lunch. A lentil bowl with sautéed vegetables, gingery dressing and sliced avocado is one of my standbys. 2:00 P.M. This is usually a good time for filming any content, whether that’s tutorials for Gucci’s Guide, specialized content for one of our retail partners or shooting episodes for our YouTube channel with any number of the amazing icons and creatives that inspire us. 4:00 P.M. Our kids have wrapped up school for the day, so I like to check in with them and hear about their days. If I’m lucky to have an hour free, I like to spend it with them. We’ll go for walks, pick out fun recipes to cook and bake together. 6:00 P.M. Dinner prep. The whole family can really get into it, which is great fun. All three of the kids like to cook and help in the kitchen. We’ll do a chickpea stir-fry or gluten-free pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe and a butter lettuce salad. 8:00 P.M. After dinner, it’s time to unwind. Some nights I need a good book with a glass of wine and others I’ll throw on a good TV show and make some hot tea. 10:00 P.M. Lights out. I like to put my phone on airplane mode so I’m not tempted to check it before bed. It’s good to disconnect from technology when you can.

Ravenna has tapped some of design’s most creative names to partner with, which keeps driving this iconic brand forward.” The handcrafted tiles are classically made, but the brand doesn’t shy away from eccentric patterns. “I dreamt something up and they executed it a way I never thought imaginable, where the colors, designs, proportions and textures were right on the money,” says Bikoff. The designer is using the map print on one wall in a bathroom of her East Hampton house and the bandana print in indigo in the guest bathroom.

or New York City–based designer Sasha Bikoff’s first surface collection, she chose to partner with American mosaic studio New Ravenna, a producer of stunning handcrafted tiles. “Mosaics and tile are special creative art forms that have been around for centuries,” says Bikoff. “I loved the idea of creating something completely unique, something that I have never seen before and something that connects to textiles that we see in fashion but also feels classic Americana.” The collection started with bandana tiles—the classic textile made into surfaces. “From this idea, I continued on this journey of exploring the Americas, and that’s where the map print and celestial sphere pattern came in, and then the Victorian laces, which act as a more feminine counterpart to the bandanas,” explains the Elle Decor A-List designer of her process. In her work, Bikoff always pays homage to the past through a fresh lens, and New Ravenna was the ideal partner. “These designs are chic, timeless and innovative at the same time,” says David Meitus, owner of Studium, a surfaces showroom in the A&D Building in New York City that is a purveyor of the collection. “New

hen summer descends, rosé is the wine we reach for. What was once a category associated f irst and foremost w ith Provence, France, has expanded in provenance. With the increasing number of winemakers embracing pink wine, the geographical regions we associate with top-tier bottles now extend beyond the obvious, and Italy is recognized now more than ever for its interpretation. “In general, people are wanting to explore outside of the classics,” suggests Christine Collado, general manager of Parcelle Wine. “When first learning about rosé, everyone starts with something from France. As consumers become increasingly more knowledgeable about wine, they’re continuing to branch out.” “In Italy, rosé has exploded,” says Tara Empson, CEO of Empson USA, a company devoted to championing Italy’s indigenous and single-varietal wines and telling stories of each estate through its expressions. “Everyone is doing it, but as you travel between the regions, you’re still drinking wines made from the grapes that are autochthonous to those areas.” From the Dolomites in the north to southern regions such as Puglia, wineries are launching rosés that reflect the wine’s origin through winemaking methods and native grapes. “Rosés from Italy offer a nice range of styles,” says Collado. “Year after year, buyers are seeing more Italian rosé on the market. A region like Piedmont is especially upping their rosé presence. I’ve enjoyed some from Sicily. The best are often grown in high altitudes offering fresh, salty and exotic flavors.” DuJour looks at some of the standout bottles taking you from mountains to the sea.

The New York-based farming facility uses an innovative process that goes whey beyond simply making hand sanitizer in the middle of a pandemic, however.

After 10 years of research, Cayuga co-founder Joe Van Groll successfully created a sustainable way to use liquid milk byproducts from major cheese and yogurt manufacturers, which typically go unused, to produce clean whey ethanol. “We are the only bulk producer of whey ethanol in North America,” says the brand’s president, Eduard Zaydman. “Most of the world’s ethanol is produced with corn. Instead of using water like traditional grain ethanol distillation, we actually produce and recycle water.” Finding a productive use for this otherwise wasted byproduct is an exciting development. “For every gallon of ethanol produced, we produce five gallons of

ffering quiet luxury with a minimalist aesthetic, the completely redesigned Rolls-Royce Ghost has been reimagined as an everyday car for a younger, less formal car owner. “We found that [certain] clients are showing a marked tendency toward luxury objects that celebrate reduction and restraint, that don’t shout but, rather, whisper,” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “They are seeking design purity by rejecting obvious and unnecessary embellishments and overt complication. To complement this minimalism, our Ghost clients require innovative but effortless technology and real engineering substance in their car.” All-wheel drive capability, four-wheel steering and a 6.75 twin

turbo V12 powerplant engine powers the smoothest and quietest drive ever. With a sleek, clean design and no seams, the manufacturer has eliminated any lines or visual disruptions on the exterior aluminum frame. The interior is equally clean and simple. Buttons and switches are hidden until requested and control everything from the climate to the handcrafted heated, cooled and massaging seats and all cabin and drive controls. “To create a product that would resonate with our Ghost clients for the next 10 years meant that we had to listen very carefully to their demands and desires,” says Müller-Ötvös. “They told us that they enjoyed Ghost’s versatility and breadth of character. It is a car they enjoyed driving themselves or to be driven in should the occasion call for a chauffeur. They also appreciated the car’s pared-back simplicity.” Priced starting at $314,000, the new Ghost features a brandnew front-end suspension called the Planer System that provides an incredibly smooth and effortless ride. Electronics include upgraded Satellite Aided Transmission as well as the brand’s Pathfinder System, which reads road conditions ahead via cameras, infrared and radar. “Ghost is the purest expression of RollsRoyce yet,” says Müller-Ötvös. “It distils the pillars of our brand into a beautiful, minimalist, yet highly complex product that is perfectly in harmony with our Ghost clients’ needs.” rolls-roycemotorcars.com

Run to Lola, Run How restaurateur Cobi Levy and marketing guru Will Makris made Lola Taverna a downtown NYC destination BY K ASEY CAMINITI

estaurateur Cobi Levy opened Greek restaurant Lola Taverna in SoHo last October. After running hospitality industry mainstays like French bistro Little Prince and healthy hotspot Broken Coconut, Levy was primed for something different. He tapped marketing whiz Will Makris to lead the restaurant’s promotional efforts. “I really respect Will,” says Levy. “Good partnerships come from yin and yang. There are certain things I know better and there are certain things Will knows better.” Lola Taverna’s airy, rustic ambiance quickly attracted diners, who flock to its covered outdoor dining area. Six months after opening, Levy and Makris were staring down the barrel of a pandemic. “I have to give Cobi a lot of credit for being the one who spearheaded the adjustment as fast as possible,” Makris says. “Cobi paid attention to what was going on in the world and [knew] we had to make people want to come to Lola for the food but also have outdoor seating where they felt comfortable and protected.” Levy always felt Lola’s prime corner location on Sixth Avenue was special, and its lush outdoor patio invites customers to dine safely. “Cobi really pushed for us to be the rock in the community. At some point, when things get better, we want to be a focal point,” says Makris. The duo are already exploring ways to grow Lola Taverna. “I’m getting calls from all over the country with interest,” says Makris. “We are planning on expanding the brand, hopefully to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. We’re firing on all cylinders.” lolataverna.com

From creating flashing neon sculptures to employing sound in unprecedented ways, American multimedia artist Bruce Nauman is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest living artists. For the first time in more than 20 years, the Tate Modern in London will present a survey of Nauman’s diverse practice, which will then travel to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan. Masterworks include video installations “MAPPING THE STUDIO II with color shift, flip, flop & flip/flop (Fat Chance John Cage),” the intense “Clown Torture,” celebrated for its sensory overload, and the Tate Turbine Hall Unilever commission “Raw Materials.” “Nauman’s ongoing investigations of words voiced or materialised were inspired in part by his fascination with Wittgenstein’s philosophical writings on language and logic,” explains writer Joan Simon in the catalog essay. “Noticing something yet to be tested, Nauman has revisited the same ideas, gestures, images and words, but critically not as replications.” Nauman likes to spell out his thoughts in neon, and nowhere is this more evident than in his most definitive work, “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths (Window or Wall Sign).”

More than 170 self-portraits completed between 1975 and 2020, as well as a series of previously unseen work, will be on display, including her signature Untitled Film Stills (1977-1980). Sherman collaborated with the institution to curate a complementary exhibition titled “Crossing Views,” which will feature more than 60 artworks (culled from the museum’s collection) that explore various interpretations of portraiture. These include art by Marina Abramovi , Gilbert & George, Andy Warhol and Wolfgang Tillmans.

Amiel and Black’s post-wedding dinner at Annabel’s in London in 1992 with guests including Margaret Thatcher and Sarah, Duchess of York

English author and editor Barbara Amiel has had the kind of fairy-tale life a million women would kill for—at least at first glance— hobnobbing with everyone from Henry and Nancy Kissinger to Jayne Wrightsman, Oscar de la Renta, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and even Ghislaine Maxwell since marrying Canadian media and mining tycoon Conrad Black in 1992. But what followed wasn’t so rosy. In 2007, after a lengthy and embarrassing trial, Black was convicted of mail fraud and obstruction of justice—his old friend President Donald Trump pardoned him in 2019. Amiel has remained steadfastly loyal to

her husband, and in this excerpt, she shares the rosier aspects of their early married life together navigating the social scenes in New York, Palm Beach and London. From hosting Princess Diana at her Cottesmore Gardens home in London to couture shopping with André Leon Talley to being told by a real estate developer friend of her husband’s that she wouldn’t be allowed inside the private old-line Bath and Tennis Club because she was Jewish, Amiel’s memoir is a juicy read. In the below excerpt, Amiel shares stories from her early days as Mrs. Conrad Black learning the socialite ropes.

was Mrs. Conrad Black. All auguries pointed to a life of unbridled happiness. “Isn’t it odd,” I said to George Jonas, “that I will actually spend my old age in love and financially secure. Who would have believed after every disaster it would work out? And he’s so wonderful. You’ll love him.” Christ, talk about tempting the gods. I emerged from the secular embrace of Chelsea Old Town Hall with the slug aspects of my former existence gone. No longer a mollusc, I had a permanent home rather than a series of borrowed and temporary hiding places. My husband was neither neurotic nor elderly, not a sadistic sociopath nor a compulsive womanizer with a Big Love approach to marriage—which is only a mere soupçon of the happy relationships I had optimistically and masochistically embraced—but rather the answer to a maiden’s prayer. At fortyseven he was my junior, intellectually far my superior, with all his own teeth, thick hair and a healthy interest in marital relations. He was also rich and Extremely Important, with a company jet. And I adored him. What more could any girl want. Rejoice! Rejoice! as Conrad would say. I did, although I had the sensation that not all the people that knew me were quite so exhilarated…. As I settled into my new position, I began to get oxygen deprivation at the thought of the steep domestic mountain in front of me. So long as I was out of society, I had no need to trump it. But now, thrown into a maelstrom of entertaining and being entertained, the old competitive instinct kicked in. I was consumed by fear of not doing it right. I was no bloody savage, but now I was gathering up homes of monumental size in London, Palm Beach and Toronto, all requiring “decoration.” They were not grand by the standards I was about to see—Blenheim, of course; Lily Safra’s Villa Leopolda on the French Riviera, bought from Gianni Agnelli, with a special tower just to store her auction catalogues; and Gloria von Thurn und Taxis hanging out in her Schloss St. Emmeram unable to count how many hundreds of rooms were in her Regensburg digs—but for me, my new homes were stupefying. Having not decorated let alone renovated one room in my entire life, this would all have been hilarious and a women’s mag “growth experience” had I not taken it so seriously…. Like a creeping mold, my houses, particularly the London home, began to need “staff.” This is one area where you either have natural talent or not, and it has little to do with upbringing. (My sister is brilliant at this.) Conrad preferred to do business lunches in the small dining room that seated six to eight people comfortably—although once again in his enthusiasm, when we were having a lunch that included Gianni Agnelli, he couldn’t resist inviting extras, and my chair was wedged up the chimney. Now that I was in the entertainment business, I needed to employ butlers as well as the laundress and cleaning ladies. The cartel of domestic employment agencies kicked in, and the résumés and interviews began. Staff who had Buckingham Palace on their résumé really impressed me, until I discovered that this was a false lead. The Queen having so large a staff, each member does one thing, and they are lost if multitasking. They all seemed to know one another or have slept with each other and no one had a good thing to say about another ex-staffer. The romantic politics were as tricky as the household ones. Then there were the graduates of the buttling schools, most notably the academy of Ivor Spencer. In the mid-nineties when I was hunting for butlers, this was still a relatively small field. London was not yet the top choice for the thick wallets of foreign grandees looking for a friendly tax shelter, especially the newly made Russian billionaires. The best butlers moved round and round among familiar homes—the Lloyd Webbers’ to the Schwarzenbachs’ to the Gert-Rudolf Flicks’— where knowledgeable chatelaines whipped them into shape. The very best of course stayed with their English employers in their London and country homes and had no desire to work for “new people,” let alone Canadians.

Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates a major milestone BY NATASHA WOLFF

T

he Met has been closed since March, when its 150th anniversary plans were put on hold. Happily, the museum reopened in August to much fanfare and with the implementation of new social distancing safety protocols. For a celebratory exhibition, the New York City institution debuted Making The Met, 1870–2020, a survey of the history of the museum’s diverse collections from John Singer Sargent to Andy Warhol. Its first location at the Dodworth Mansion at 681 Fifth Avenue showcased a Roman sarcophagus and, in 1871, the institution acquired 174 European paintings including works by Anthony van Dyck, Nicolas Poussin and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Nine years later, the Met moved to its current location on 82nd Street and Fifth Avenue. Architect Richard Morris Hunt designed the Beaux-Arts column-adorned facade as it still stands today, but a modern museumgoer would hardly recognize the interiors. The grand Great Hall has always invited visitors in a welcoming and magnificent way, but gallery spaces have been reimagined and expanded upon over the years to accommodate a diverse collection of 1.5 million objects, including antiquities, tapestries, fashion, photography, and contemporary and modern art celebrating 5,000 years of culture.

n 1951, designer Christian Dior purchased a 247-acre estate in Provence, France. During the years that followed, he restored the château and the land, adding a pond and planting an assortment of cypress trees, rose bushes, lavender, jasmine and olive trees. The designer spent the remainder of his life escaping to Le Château de la Colle Noire for holidays and summers until his death in 1957. “Dior at la Colle Noire was a bit like Louis XIV at Versailles, but on a different scale, of course—a place that was never beautiful enough, never finished, always in progress. It was a place where Mr. Dior was happy,” says Parfums Christian Dior’s brand culture and heritage director, Frederic Bourdelier. After Dior’s death, the Colle Noire property was sold to a private owner, but in 2013, Parfums Christian Dior owner LVMH purchased the property and set out to return it to its former glory. “Many of the places that Dior lived in were destroyed or are in the hands of private owners,” says Bourdelier. “Buying this back was one of the last opportunities to own one of his homes.” Luckily, many of the original trees and f lower beds had persevered over time. With the help of landscape architect Philippe Deliau, the gardens were replanted with Dior’s favorite flowers, which are still used in the brand’s iconic fragrances, especially rosa centifolia. Also known as the May rose, it has a harvest period from May to early June and is extremely delicate and finicky. It needs to be picked on the day it blossoms and taken to the factory within hours of being hand-picked in order to capture its scent. After years of renovations, the home and surrounding estate reopened in 2016 and is available, on occasion, for private tours and special visits. “It was a place that inspired Christian Dior,” says Bourdelier. “When you enter the château, you are immediately plunged into his imagination, his tastes, the surroundings of his life and his art de vivre.” The reunification of Le Château de la Colle Noire and the house of Dior has —FREDERIC BOURDELIER given the brand an opportunity to honor its

Niseko, Skiing’s Best-Kept Secret

The Japanese resort town holds its own amongst the best winter sport destinations

FALL 2020

DUJOUR.COM

BY JONATHAN SOROFF

A

mong the cognoscenti, the top foreign ski destination these days isn’t in the Alps; it’s in Asia. And when a ski resort bills itself as “The St. Moritz of Japan,” it has a lot to live up to. Niseko, on the northern island of Hokkaido, delivers on the hype. The name Niseko, which is used collectively to refer to six interconnected ski mountains, is derived from the language of the ancient Ainu people, who populated Hokkaido and whose culture is distinct from what we think of as traditionally Japanese, making a trip there a unique experience, even for natives of Tokyo or Kyoto. And then there are the ski conditions. Among the most ideal in the world, the area receives near-constant snow from December through April, thanks to winds from Siberia that pick up moisture over the Sea of Japan and dump waist-deep champagne powder when they hit the mountains. In fact, so exceptional is the skiing that friends who live year-round in Sun Valley, Idaho, and have visited all the world’s top ski destinations maintain that Niseko is their favorite. The resort’s main town, Hirafu, is still relatively

compact and uncrowded, despite its popularity among savvy Australian and New Zealand powder hounds, who make up the bulk of the non-Asian visitors. They smile knowingly when anyone remarks on the superb snow and, more often than not, they follow it up with, “Yes, but let’s just keep that our little secret.” For hardcore adrenaline junkies, challenging back-country skiing can be found in spots like the popular forest route called Strawberry Fields, but you won’t get bored with the 61 runs and 12 terrain parks serviced by 38 gondolas and chairlifts on the four main peaks. The principal reason Niseko remains so unspoiled is that it isn’t easy to reach. An hour-and-a-half-long f light from Tokyo brings you to New Chitose Airport, near Sapporo, and then it’s a two-hour train or bus ride. (Renting a car is pointless, since you won’t use it once you get there.) A side trip to Sapporo, especially during the Snow Festival in February, is well worth the detour. And while Niseko is still relatively undeveloped, a new Park Hyatt opened last year in Hanazono, while luxurious slopeside condos like Suiboku, on the main drag of Hirafu, offer complete privacy with all the amenities of a five-star hotel.

Nothing is more soul-satisfying after a day on the slopes than a spicy crab ramen washed down with an ice-cold pint of Sapporo

Of course, any ski resort is measured as much by its off-piste activities as by the action on the mountain, and in that regard, Niseko also excels. The landscape is dominated by a dormant volcano called Mount Yotei, nicknamed “The Fuji of the North,” which provides a visually arresting backdrop for a day on the slopes (as well as another popular place for back-country thrills), but the geothermal activity in the area also means that the onsens, or hot springs, are among the best in Japan. We recommend the century-old Konbu. One of the area’s most fascinating cultural attractions is Somoza, a museum, gallery, café and tea house inside a kominka, or farmhouse, that was disassembled and rebuilt on a cliff overlooking a picturesque stream and pristine forest. It’s like stepping straight into a Hokusai painting, and the gallery showcases both the work of local artists and numerous priceless Ainu artifacts. For a more unusual winter activity, try snow rafting, in which a rubber raft is

towed behind a snowmobile, providing a chance to take in the astonishingly beautiful countryside. Horseback riding through the frozen scenery offers a less sedentary alternative. Another big draw in Hokkaido is its regional cuisine, which is unlike the rest of Japan’s. Signature dishes include jingisukan (a corruption of “Genghis Khan”), a mutton dish prepared on a metal grill at the center of the table, and soup curry, which originated in Sapporo and offers a uniquely Japanese take on the spice blend. Because of the prevalence of cattle farming in Hokkaido, beef and dairy products are more of a mainstay than elsewhere in Japan, with delicious artisanal cheeses and ice cream to be found. Because Niseko is so close to the ocean, the seafood is equally top-notch. Nothing is more soul-satisfying after a day on the slopes than a spicy crab ramen washed down with an ice-cold pint of Sapporo. The options for pizza and burgers are numerous, as well, but more demanding diners will want to try such award-winning restaurants as Yo, Sessa and the Michelin-starred Kamimura. And ever since the late Anthony Bourdain featured chef Tatsuru Rai on No Reservations, a dinner reservation at his Rakuichi has been hard to come by, but the soba noodles are worth the effort. Despite its diminutive size, Hirafu offers some world-class nightlife, as well. Through a vintage red Coke vending machine door plastered with stickers, you’ll find Bar Gyu+, also known as “The Fridge.” The laidback speakeasy boasts an impressive collection of Japanese whiskeys, some of which cost upward of $200 a pop, as well as an inventive and unusual cocktail list. The Powder Room boasts a mouth-watering grill menu that includes items like famed local sea urchin and Iberico pork shoulder from Spain, all of which w ill make you think you’re in Shinjuku’s hippest hotspot rather than a tiny ski town 700 miles to the north. Best of all: Niseko’s ski season is long, running from late November to early May, so if you plan correctly, you can spend a week shredding the slopes and then head south to catch the world-famous cherry blossoms. It’s not often that a ski vacation comes wrapped in such a culturally enriching package, and that’s just one of Niseko’s numerous charms. But let’s just keep that our little secret.

W

ith social distancing on the horizon for the foreseeable future, paying for privacy and space—namely, by renting a villa—is the most desirable travel amenity right now. The luxury hospitality industry is changing as a result and is trending toward renting private homes, rather than being surrounded by other people in a hotel building. “People have come to realize that true luxury is spending time with family and friends and being able to enjoy that freely without worry,” says Amanda Dyjecinski, Onefinestay’s chief brand and marketing officer. “The appetite for intimate reunions is increasing.” Multigenerational families are looking for space and privacy in pristine, well-designed homes, and with the holidays coming up, warm-weather destinations like the Caribbean are at the top of the wish list. “Our most-booked homes have special features such as private pools, cinemas and tennis courts for the entire family to enjoy,” says Dyjecinski.

Plus, with everyone working remotely, a home with ample space is ideal for spreading out. “Over the past six months, private vacation rentals have surged,” says Brent Handler, founder and CEO of Inspirato, a membership luxury vacation rental company. “You can easily choose a new destination for your home office or remote school, reunite with family members and other loved ones or simply take some deserved time in different beautiful homes, resorts and suites throughout the year.” There is also the desire for highly personalized, on-demand support like concierges who can arrange for unique experiences and can assist with complicated travel matters during these uncertain times. And, of course, rigorous housekeeping. “Here at Round Hill, we are fortunate to have 27 gorgeous private villas that are now even more in demand,” says Josef Forstmayr, managing director of Jamaica’s iconic Round Hill Hotel & Villas. “We just launched a new Villa Retreat package, which allows guests to enjoy all the luxurious comforts of our private villas and our world-class resort amenities with safety top-of-mind.” Here are eight properties with villas where luxury and privacy are paramount—you can book now for the holiday season.

An upbeat Julianne Moore bounds into the Marram resort in Montauk in late June, happy to be seeing collaborators and friends for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic hit. ‘‘HI, I’M JULIE,” she says, introducing herself to everyone on set as if the Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe–winning actress wasn’t instantly recognizable to almost anyone she meets. After all, she’s been the star of dozens of films, including The Hours, Magnolia and Still Alice, and TV shows (she earned a 1988 Daytime Emmy for her role in As the World Turns) and has appeared in advertising campaigns for brands like Bulgari and L’Oreal Paris. She’s a familiar front-row face at fashion weeks around the world, and any New Yorker will gladly recount a sighting of Moore floating through the West Village neighborhood she calls home. The 59-year-old Moore was born in For t Bragg, Nor th Carolina, and moved around regularly as a child thanks to her father’s career in the Army, but she’s lived in New York City for decades with her filmmaker husband, Bart Freundlich, and has become a recognizable part of the city’s celebrity landscape. The couple raised their two children, Liv and Caleb, in a townhouse in Manhattan but today find themselves with something like an empty nest—well, almost. Since mid-March, Moore has been holed up with her husband and daughter in their Montauk home. “We felt so lucky to have it,” she says. “It was so, so cold in the winter, but amazing.” Liv graduated from high school and turned 18 during the quarantine, and Caleb finished his final year at a North Carolina college. “It’s always wonderful to be with your family.” “My husband cooks and I clean,” she explains. “But we’re both so sick of the endless loads of laundry and dishes.” Moore has been staying sane thanks to daily walks, puzzles and lots of books on tape, including Ann Patchett’s The Dutch House, Cathleen Schine’s The Grammarians, and Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half; she also binged on Hulu’s Normal People.

Like everyone else, she’s had her frustrated, stressful moments. “It’s been a lesson for all of us,” she says. “Online yoga classes from The Shala in New York City have helped me anchor my day and be present. The same teachers, the same community. It’s the one thing I had to do every day.” But none of us are immune from worrying about the future. “Trying to go forward as if nothing has changed is a bit of a fool’s errand,” says Moore. “We just have to accept that we don’t know what’s happening with anything.” Prior to the lockdown, Moore had been on set at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn shooting the television series Lisey’s Story, based on the Stephen King book, with Clive Owen for Apple TV+. “I love Clive [the two starred in the 2006 film Children of Men] and Stephen couldn’t have been more lovely or generous with his time on set.” The Glorias, out this month on Amazon Prime Video, is a biopic of activist, feminist and author Gloria Steinem. Moore plays her in her 1970s heyday and beyond. The film, based on Steinem’s 2015 memoir My Life on the Road, is a real labor of love and tribute to Steinem and her work. It’s also timely, coming out 100 years after the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. In the film, directed by Julie Taymor, several actresses play Steinem over the course of her life, including Alicia Vikander in her early years. Steinem visited the set and was available to the filmmaker and actors. “It was intimidating,” Moore says of meeting Steinem prior to filming and having her around. “She’s such a magnificent and formidable woman and the definition of an activist.” Did Steinem offer Moore any pointers on set? “She’ll gently correct you, but she’s so modest,” says Moore. Steinem’s openness caught the actors off-guard. “I remember all three of us being in the room together, and Julianne and I were giving each other looks and sharing a ‘pinch me’ moment across the table,” says Vikander. “We couldn’t believe that we were sitting with Gloria Steinem, asking her questions and talking about her life.” Even during her most frustrating moments, Steinem never seems to lose her cool or raise her voice—tools that likely made her work so successful. “As an actress, it was a challenge to portray her, because her mannerisms and her vocal quality are so subtle,” says Moore. “Watching her speeches and interviews, I’m so aware of how much abuse was inf licted on her. But she’s never rash and doesn’t yell. She never took the bait.” Moore’s co-star, Bette Midler, who plays Bella Abzug in the film, was impressed by her characterization of Steinem. “Aside from looking so much like her, the one thing she caught that was so true was Gloria’s speech pattern, a kind of a drawl that never goes above a certain volume.” Taymor, of course, agrees: “I knew that she would breathe in the challenge through meetings with Gloria herself, obsessive research of the woman and her times and her deep concern in mastering the physicality and vocal qualities that Gloria possesses.” But the film isn’t a straightforward biopic. “Julie is a real visual artist,” says Moore. “The fantastical element of the film was so appealing to me. She cinematically encompasses who this person was to all of us.” Furthermore, Moore was impressed by all her co-stars. “You never walk into a trailer and see the kind of diversity that we had on set. So many women are represented in the film and that sense of Gloria being about all women.” In this uncertain political landscape, it’s all the more relevant to be celebrating the figure who made such major strides for women’s rights. “The film is a real reminder on whose shoulders we stand and the rights we take for granted now—like birth control,” says Moore. While The Glorias might look back at the life of one particular titan, Moore knows that the battle for civil rights is far from over, citing Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement fighting to protect people from gun violence, as an equivalent of Steinem for the 21st century. “Shannon has inspired so many people with her activism,” explains Moore, who has become involved in the cause, epitomizing the idea that the greatest role isn’t always one played onscreen.

The study’s original paneling was hand-finished for an ebonized effect by Willem Racké studio. Mid-century furnishings, including the marbletopped rosewood desk and James Mont lacquered cabinet, are mixed with contemporary lighting from Coup d’Etat and Twentieth; the entry’s main stair hall sets the stage with a bold geometric runner from Stark Carpet; overlooking the pool and the grounds beyond, the sunny breakfast room was outfitted with a new Roche Bobois dining table and chairs that feel decidedly vintage in this classic setting

A 1933 TUDOR-STYLE HOME SET ON TWO ACRES IN HILLSBOROUGH,

California, outside San Francisco, was in need of a top-down renovation to accommodate a family of five. Its owners, Holly and Rich Lawson, tapped longtime friend and collaborator, designer Ken Fulk, for the undertaking. “When they found this extraordinary property, they called me to preview it with them,” explains Fulk. “Of course, I was instantly mesmerized by the grand old estate.” Fulk worked tirelessly to maintain the old-world elegance and comfort of the interiors while injecting modern updates and a fresh energy. “They wanted to honor the history of the property but also update it with amenities suitable for a young family,” says Fulk. The Lawsons were eager to create more indoor/outdoor living spaces for casual use and entertaining, so opening up rooms was a necessary first step. “While it’s certainly a comfortable family abode, it’s also tailor-made for entertaining on a grand scale,” says Fulk. “The house is the epicenter of daily life and filled with extended family and friends. It’s the site of frequent gatherings, whether impromptu or elaborately planned affairs.” The trick was not to lose the formality and gentility of the home, because those qualities spoke to the owners. “We were determined to maintain the traditional aspects while not having it feel stodgy or too oldfashioned,” says Fulk.

Led by Ken Fulk, Inc. senior designer Douglas Slayton, the team created interiors with a graphic monochromatic palette peppered with pops of color. Antiques from the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as vintage mid-century finds and contemporary pieces, now fill the home. “We mixed furnishings from a variety of eras while keeping a cohesive feel,” explains Fulk. The entryway, which overlooks the grounds, now showcases a bold, geometric Stark Carpet runner. In the dining room, the walls are covered in Maya Romanoff marquetry veneer, and in the powder room, a hand-painted botanical de Gournay wall covering steals the show. Upstairs, the master bedroom got special attention thanks to the team’s discovery of a hidden vaulted space above the dropped ceiling. “We literally took the lid off the room, exposing the rafters and expressing the glorious volume of the space,” says Fulk. Now, there are inset panels in the vaulted ceiling finished in a lustrous silvery gold. It’s a throwback, for sure, but a successful one. Fulk always loves a nod to the past, and this house has that in spades. “The homeowners and I share a romance for bygone eras,” says Fulk. “And there is definitely a Gatsby-esque quality to the place. It’s easy to imagine Daisy Buchanan holding court on the back terrace.”

T’S BEEN A SLOW YEAR FOR ACTORS. WITH FILM PRODUCTIONS shut down and Broadway stages dark, there have been limited opportunities for many performers to work. And while Zachary Quinto has spent recent months lying low between his homes in New York City and Los Angeles, for all of us who have been glued to our TV screens, Quinto—who stars in the AMC series NOS4A2, which had its second season premiere in June, appeared on the Apple TV+ series Little America, and has a lead role in the upcoming film The Boys in the Band, airing this month on Netflix—might just be more present than ever. But that’s only on screen. In real life, Quinto fled Italy—where he was filming an episode of genealogy documentary series Who Do You Think You Are?—just as the coronavirus pandemic hit in favor of New York City, where he keeps an apartment downtown. “I feel really fortunate in that I was able to be in New York from March through Memorial Day,” he explains. He then made his way to Los Angeles, which fast became the pandemic’s epicenter after things had settled down in New York. “This pandemic has been following me!” he jokes. “In many ways, Los Angeles is an easier place to be in lockdown—especially with two dogs. It doesn’t feel so acute or oppressive here.” But Quinto has found this time to be a delicate balance between rewarding and challenging. “Any time we have an opportunity to ref lect and slow down, there is value in that,” he says. “We prize ambition and drive in our society so that it’s easy to lose sight of meaningful and actual connections. I am grateful for the chance to turn down the volume and have more space. And not feel so motivated by ambition and by what’s next. That said, I like that as well.” Indeed, his upcoming projects include the dramatic series Biopunk, a voiceover part in an animated Superman series and a reported reprisal of his role as Spock in an as-yet-untitled Star Trek sequel. So, while he’s not too worried about what might come next, Quinto’s still learning to navigate his newfound downtime. “It feels so surreal that there is a complete cessation of production. We’re all affected.” Quinto, who helms his own production company, has been channeling his energies into finding other creative outlets during this period. “I’m really looking forward to the development floodgates reopening.”

— ZACHARY QUINTO

Fans, on the other hand, will get the chance to see plenty of him when Band premieres on Netflix. From a 1968 Off-Broadway play by American playwright Mart Crowley to a 1970 film adaptation, a 2018 Broadway revival and the small screen in 2020, the project has had more lives than most. In the Netf lix film, produced by Ryan Murphy and directed by Joe Mantello, Quinto plays Harold, a cutting and colorful gay man who’s celebrating his birthday at a friend’s apartment and is spiraling about aging. The cast, all reuniting from the Broadway production, includes Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Andrew Rannells and Robin De Jesús. “It was pretty magical to work with this group of actors, and we had the added bonus of coming back together a year later to do the film,” says Quinto. “We’d established a pretty remarkable shorthand after performing on Broadway together for months.” But Quinto was initially resistant to the idea of bringing the play back to life. “I had misgivings about it,” he explains, “but I said yes because of the actors and the collaborative spirit.” Crowley died in March at age 84, after living to accept the Tony Award for best revival of a play in 2019. “I would be so bereft had I not said yes,” says Quinto. “To watch this journey for him and experience it through him and be a part of the ensemble who brought this play to life was so profound for me.” Crowley’s seminal play is just as relevant today as it was 50 years ago, and it paved the way for contemporary gay projects like last year’s The Inheritance and television series from Queer as Folk to The L Word. For Quinto to explore this self-loathing, larger-than-life character for a year and a half of his life was “an endless playground.” He explains, “Harold is the most vivid and bombastic character. He’s so dry and sardonic but also objectively the most self-examined of the group assembled. He’s gotten himself to a place where no one could hate him as much as he hates himself. He’s transported self-hatred into self-acceptance. He always maintains a lot of distance from the situation and is also so present in it.” Filming the role was vastly different than playing it on stage. “The play was much more abstract on stage. There was a broader sense of time, and it wasn’t specific to the period. With the film, you’re able to get more specific,” says Quinto. “The film is much more rooted in the period, and we really embraced that. Capturing the spirit of that apartment and the party was a great evolution.” Having the chance to work on the project in two iterations also gave Quinto an unexpected perk—the chance to develop real-life friendships with the men who play his pals. “We’re all incredibly close, creatively and personally,” says Quinto. “Where there weren’t relationships before the play, now I consider those people lifelong friends.”

PARK ENTREPRENEUR AND DESIGNER FRANCISCO COSTA TRANSFORMS A NEW YORK CITY APARTMENT INTO A MINIMALIST, SERENE OASIS

BY NATASHA WOLFF!

PHOTOGRAPHY BY BJÖRN WALLANDER! PORTRAIT BY WESTON WELLS STYLED BY CARLOS MOTA

F

OR BRAZILIAN DESIGNER FRANCISCO COSTA, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT minimalism, modernity and light. So when he first toured the classic Park Avenue corner apartment that would become his home, he was put off by the traditional, dark interiors. The iconic limestone building was built in 1917 by renowned architect Emery Roth and the famed Bing and Bing developers. “It had great bones, proportions and high ceilings, but one needed to open up the spaces,” says Costa, who lives in the apartment with his longtime partner, horse trainer and real estate broker John DeStefano. “I wanted it to exude a calm and grandness without being grand.” And so followed a nine-month gut renovation to restore the parquet f loors, rebuild the walls to widen the corridors, replace all the doors (the 23 new ones boast recessed Harmon hinges and are very special to Costa) and strip away a lot of the heaviness, like ornate moldings. They also moved and enlarged the kitchen, removed the formal dining room and created a butler’s pantry. Working with designers Alexander Poma and Leslie Steven of Pomasteven, Costa was able to reinterpret the space in a modern way, without any clutter or distractions. To this end, the walls and ceilings are painted uniformly in Benjamin Moore Paper White. The result is an airy, loft-like home that has a fluid flow and great symmetry. “I saw the greatness of the space itself and I respectfully brought down all the excess and made it into a real modern, loft-like space with elegant proportions,” says Costa. “It’s not opulent. It’s very edited and zen for us.”


DUJOUR.COM 124 FALL 2020 â&#x20AC;&#x153;I brought down all the original moldings and stripped down the fireplace to minimize it,â&#x20AC;? says Costa of the expansive living room. A pair of 1980s sofas were reupholstered in white cotton canvas and live alongside an upholstered Jacques Adnet chair and a set of nesting tables. A pencil drawing sits above the fireplace next to a Cecily Brown painting.


THE EMOTIONAL ASPECT OF FINDING OBJECTS TO FILL A HOME IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. EVERYTHING I HAVE HERE IS EXTREMELY PERSONAL. — FRANCISCO COSTA CLOCKWISE FROM TOP:

In the living room, a 1960s leather lounge chair and ottoman by Bruno Mathsson, a 1960s Danish floor lamp by Povl Dinesen and on the wall a work on paper, “Metropolitan Opera” by Guillermo Kuitca

The space is a perfect blank slate to showcase a mix of furnishings that the couple have collected over the years; some are new and custom-made, some are sourced from auction houses and others from vintage stores. “The emotional aspect of finding objects to fill the home is very important to me,” explains Costa. “Everything I have here is extremely personal. I love the hunt for objects, and I love discovering something new about every object that I own.” Costa is a collector with a meticulous eye who has so many special pieces amassed over the years, he doesn’t have enough homes to display them. He is also an avid art collector, with pieces in the home by Guillermo Kuitca, Bruce Nauman, Susan Rothenberg, Cecily Brown and Jeff Koons.

The former Calvin Klein Collection creative director launched his wellness and skincare brand Costa Brazil two years ago with a strong Brazilian DNA that felt genuine and authentic, so having a new home with lots of space for business meetings and entertaining was crucial. “It’s a great way to display our lifestyle for Costa Brazil,” says Costa, who can always be found in the living room. And while the apartment is pristine and peaceful, the couple loves to entertain and host friends for drinks and dinner in an effortless way (Nicky Hilton, jewelry designer Ana Khouri and actress Camilla Belle have all been guests in the art-filled home). “Friends are always coming over for casual buffet dinners and end up mingling by the bar and in the kitchen, which is the soul of the home.” And this one has a lot of heart.

What makes Maison Atia so special? I am a sixth-generation furrier, so the vernacular of a furrier runs through my veins. As I started to shop for faux fur for myself, I didn’t understand why there wasn’t a faux fur option that I thought was chic. I saw so much potential in this new material, and I knew I could transform faux fur.

FUR THE DOGS Chloe Mendel, the

creative director of Maison Atia, has teamed up with PAWS Chicago to save animals through her chic faux fur line BY LAUREN WATZICH

hloe Mendel, the talented daughter of fashion designer Gilles Mendel, co-founded luxury faux fur coat label Maison Atia alongside Gustave Maisonrouge. Now, she’s helping to save coats of a different kind. The fashion house’s #BuyACoatSaveAPuppy campaign is working in tandem with PAWS Chicago, a leading no-kill animal shelter, to provide animals with access to safe living conditions through every coat sold. Mendel discovered PAWS Chicago through her partner Billy Corgan, lead singer of Smashing Pumpkins, and ever since, the shelter has been the designer’s happy place. The best part is that #BuyACoatSaveAPuppy will always be a part of Maison Atia’s mission. The coats, which are adored by celebrities like Kate Moss, are equally furry and adorable— this season’s vibrant styles were inspired by pop artist Robert Indiana. “I imagine these coats inside the incredible closet of Diana Vreeland, whose style was as timeless as she was,” says Mendel. maisonatia.com How did the campaign come about? Having adopted four pets from PAWS Chicago, it only felt natural to partner with this charity that changed my life for the better. With every coat sold, we provide a homeless pet free transportation to a no-kill shelter with the help of PAWS Chicago. You don’t think about it, but the costs of the transportation are a financial weight. Where do the proceeds go? PAWS puts great effort into transporting pets from disaster relief areas nationwide to their fantastic medical center in

fter nine years as a graphic designer, Lauren Blake decided to launch American-made luxury handbag brand Wyld Empyre. The Fort Worth native and resident lives with her husband and two sons and studied architecture at the University of Texas and 3D design and sculpture at Texas Christian University. “Throughout my career, I’ve navigated a balance between craftsmanship and creative risk-taking while working with metal, wood, and concrete designs and testing color theories,” says Blake. The designer already had a keen design eye and taste level that made the transition to fashion design seamless. “When embarking on this journey, my vision was to provide consumers with unique yet practical leather goods with a modern edge and a touch of pop art,” says Blake. The bags are made with the finest skins, leathers and other materials, all ethically sourced from family-owned tanneries and ateliers in Spain, Italy and Louisiana, and the hardware is 18-karat-gold-plated. “When planning my collection, I always try to keep function and style in mind. I want our timeless designs to complement [customers’] everyday lives,” the designer explains. This spring, with so much economic devastation across the country, Blake committed to donating 30 percent of the proceeds from every handbag sale to BABY2BABY, an organization that provides children living in poverty with all the basic necessities that every child needs and deserves. wyldempyre.com

ouston entrepreneur and lawyer Courtney Sarofim wasn’t looking for a new investment opportunity when her sister-in-law, Allison Sarofim, introduced her to fashion designer Adam Lippes five years ago. “She thought we would really like each other, and that his designs, fabrics, and whole ethos would really work for our friends,” says Courtney. “He came to Houston and I held a trunk show for his collection in my home and we’ve been friends ever since.” Lippes, who honed his skills designing for Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta, first rose to prominence in the New York fashion world with the basics brand Adam+Eve. Then he set his sights on a more upscale, ready-to-wear fashion brand under his own name, which is now sold at Bergdorf Goodman and Net-a-Porter. The American sportswear brand offers great glamour in sequined pieces for a night out as well as updated classics like the perfect trench coat, a silk crepe dress or smart suiting. “I’m always running around between work, charitable commitments and taking care of our children, and Adam makes the perfect pieces for that lifestyle,” says Sarofim. “I always feel-well dressed and unfussy in his beautiful clothes.” So what drew Sarofim to the collection and made her eager to invest in the brand? “Adam is making wearable, beautiful clothes,” says Sarofim. “This seems like a no-brainer, but I think it’s rare out there. He understands his customer as he spends a lot of time with her, and listens to and understands what she wants.” Recently, Lippes partnered with English brand OKA on a chic tabletop collection—perfect for his customer base. Sarofim wasn’t looking to invest in a fashion brand; she’d explored other opportunities but nothing was a fit. “It wasn’t until meeting Adam and really understanding him and his desires for the brand that I jumped in,” says Sarofim. adamlippes.com

A candy-colored pink-and-white striped awning, tasseled umbrella plus decorative throw pillows and blankets and vintage props make this a poolside paradise you’ll want to book for the day.

Silver Lake Pool & Inn is a new 54-room boutique hotel in Silver Lake from the Palisociety team. The property was designed in partnership with Venice Beach–based design firm Electric Bowery. The contemporary aesthetic of the hotel has Mexico City vibes and an earthy color palette. “The hotel also has a disproportionate amount of outdoor space for a hotel of this size, so that’s really special,” says Avi Brosh, Palisociety’s founder. “This allows us to be a unique amenity and hub for the neighborhood.” Marco Polo, its all-day, alfresco Italian restaurant, has become a big draw for its

The first location for their new hospitality brand Hotel June is a 12-story white tower near Playa Del Rey, and its 250 rooms showcase a mid-century modern, beachy decor with light natural woods, native fabrics, handmade tiles and organic textures. “We like to say it’s the younger sibling of Proper, with the same attention to detail, passion and love for hospitality and experiences as Proper, just stripped down a bit,” says De Lowe. Those non-negotiable amenities include Italian Fili D’oro linens, Aesop bath products and first-rate food and beverage establishments. Hotel June’s dining and drinking destinations are created in partnership with hospitality impresario Steve Livigni of Happy to Serve You Hospitality Group (of Scopa Italian Roots, Dama and Old Lightning). Caravan Swim Club, a two-level, outdoor restaurant and bar located poolside, serves seafood and tropical cocktails, while Scenic Route is the indoor restaurant that will open when the local mandates allow. For now, its founders are thinking about future outposts and other cities that would benefit from a Hotel June. “We envision opening Hotel Junes in other culturally rich, creative places, both big and small, including Nashville, Chicago and Miami,” explains De Lowe. thehoteljune.com

designer Nina Freudenberger tackles her first hospitality project BY NATASHA WOLFF

ith rolling hills and stunning beaches, Cambria is an idyllic seaside village on the Central Coast in San Luis Obispo County. For Los Angeles-based interior designer and author Nina Freudenberger, it was also the ideal location for her first hospitality project. “It really feels like the perfect culmination of everything that California has to offer,” says Freudenberger. “It’s the perfect getaway from Los Angeles.” With year-round warm weather, California is naturally appealing, but this beachfront town didn’t have any design-forward hotels until White Water came along. The new property on Moonstone Beach, run by the owners of SoCal boutique hotels Holiday House, Casa Laguna, Cambria Beach Lodge and Sparrows Lodge, involved remodeling and merging two different pre-existing inns into one. “We worked hard to make sure that it felt unified, since we didn’t have the ability to change the architecture,” says the designer. “Since there was no changing the layout, we had to focus on wall and lighting treatments and all of the textures we were adding to the space to make it feel luxurious in its simplicity.” Freudenberger sourced custom pieces from as many local artisans as she could for the 1970s Scandanavian coastal aesthetic she was trying to achieve. The wife and mother of two boys loved the experience of a hotel project after years of working on residential homes. “I am a big traveler and have always been interested in the hospitality experience,” she says. “Small things make a big difference, and it takes a tremendous amount of extra thought to get it just right.” Plus, choosing materials and furnishings that are practical and can take a beating (think using high-performance outdoor tent material for the headboards) was a new challenge. “Nothing would be more disappointing if it only looked good on Day 1!” whitewatercambria.com

FOR MORE ON LOS ANGELES, VISIT DUJOUR.COM/CITIES

apper, businessman and cultural icon Snoop Dogg released his debut album Doggystyle in 1993, and with it came the hit song “Gin and Juice.” From a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance in 1995 to breaking the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest gin and juice cocktail in 2018, the song has found success across many categories. Now, Snoop has partnered with longtime friend and co-founder of Trusted Spirits Keenan Towns and Prestige Beverage Group to launch Indoggo Gin, a strawberryinfused, all-natural, gluten-free gin. When Towns and Snoop first started working on Indoggo Gin together nearly two years ago, nailing the flavor was the first step. “We knew we wanted a taste profile that was completely different from the gins currently on the market,” says Towns. “Most gins are very juniper-forward, and while we have juniper, we have used other unique botanicals and infused all-natural strawberry flavor to create the best-tasting gin in the world.” The duo has partnered on other projects before (the rapper was a brand ambassador for Tanqueray), but with this spirit, Snoop is an owner so he was more involved in all facets of the process. “Now he can be completely creative, come up with his own marketing strategies and use all of his assets to promote his creation. It’s all very organic and authentic,” says Towns. Some gins can be dry and harsh, so for Snoop, it was important to mix the gin and juice, if you will, to create something sweeter. “After several iterations with different fruits and flavors, we wanted something that was approachable, juicy, fresh and easy to drink,” says Snoop. So how does Snoop like to sip his? On the rocks or with a splash of club soda or pineapple juice. “Because it’s so light and refreshing, I don’t think you need to add much.” indoggogin.com

Nola Singer’s Rescue Rosé helps find homes for dogs in need With a responsible mission behind her brand and a bigger vision for the future, Singer found a vineyard in Santa Rosa, California, that was the perfect match to produce her wine. “It was challenging finding the right partner, but I found Gravity Wine House that is certified sustainable and they have a lot of organic practices—they’re even solar-powered,” she says. In-person events for Rescue Rosé may have been postponed due to COVID-19, but Singer has embraced the digital world with virtual happy hours and has her light-bodied, floral rosé available at several stores in Los Angeles, including Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits and Cheese. “I love rosé,” she exclaims. “I drink it all year round.” And now we all have a good excuse to. rescuerose.com

Los Angeles-based stylist Nola Singer loves rosé—who doesn’t? But in an effort to marry her love of rosé and her dedication to finding homes for rescue animals, she launched Rescue Rosé—a light and crisp Sonoma Valley wine. With more than a decade of experience rescuing animals (she has personally adopted five dogs), Singer knew she wanted to partner with her longtime friend Sasha Abelson’s organization Love Leo Rescue. The Los Angeles– based nonprofit takes in rescue dogs, provides medical care and shelter and, most importantly, helps find them forever homes. A portion of proceeds from every bottle of Rescue Rosé sold is donated to Love Leo Rescue. “I wanted to help animals in a bigger way,” says Singer. “Eventually, the dream would be to have a sanctuary where you can drink wine, see the dogs and adopt them. Older dogs that don’t get homes could also live there.”

As I started to really look at the beauty world I found much of it conservative and conventional. I thought we can do this, and we can do it differently. The line features multipurpose products such as the Colour Stick that can be worn on the eyes, lips or cheeks and classics like mascara, eye liner, eye shadow and lipstick in the brand’s artful packaging. “I don’t want to tell people how to wear the cosmetics, just to inspire them,” says Fffrench. “Some of our first products are simply sticks of colour–colours that are universally beautiful and to be worn in whichever way you like.” byredo.com

’m a total skincare snob and I’m not afraid to admit it,” says beauty and wellness publicist Emily Parr, who has launched brands like Juice Generation, Drunk Elephant, Briogeo and Anna Kaiser. Knowing the industry inside and out, she noticed that no brands were making cleansers the star of the show and she couldn’t find one she loved. She was impressed by the evolution of the serum, cream and mask categories, but felt cleansers were overlooked. “We all have cravings, and so does our skin,” says Parr. “Skin is a living organ. It gets cranky, it gets thirsty, it has different needs at different times. You

must listen to your skin, because one-anddone simply doesn’t cut it when it comes to face wash.” Plus, she discovered that the majority of cleansers on the market are water and surfactants (cleansing agents) with a few key ingredients sprinkled in for marketing value. Cutting back on fillers like water leaves much more room for vitamins, antioxidants, skin-identical and cell-communicating ingredients. So last year, Parr and her partner Majeed Hemmat launched skincare brand HoliFrog with four hero cleansers: Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash, Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash, Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash and Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash. “This idea of ‘situational cleansing’ has become the cornerstone of our brand,” Parr explains. “Skin has different needs at different times.” The brand became a fast bestseller at Dermstore, SpaceNK and FaceGym and will launch this fall on HSN. After the brand’s debut, Parr wanted to expand its range beyond cleansers, but wasn’t sure which category to tackle next. “Based on customer feedback, it became quite clear that our customers wanted a skincare system to use post-wash,” she explains. So the brand is evolving from its motto of “situational cleansing” to skincare “for every skin situation.” Their first noncleanser, launching this fall, is a hydration hybrid that drenches and repairs the skin—without any excess filler ingredients. Galilee Antioxidant Dewy Drop is a restoring serum that moonlights as a lotion emulsion. This serum-meets-lotion boasts antioxidants, vitamins, gentle exfoliants, non-fragrant plant oils and extracts and can be used on its own or in conjunction with your existing routine. “Nothing we do will ever be watered down...pun intended,” Parr says. holifrog.com

S

asha Plavsic created Ilia Beauty after spending much of her life embracing a clean lifestyle. Her brother became sick with asthma at a young age, which inspired her family to pivot to a healthier way of life. Plavsic recalls growing up in Vancouver with a level of consciousness around a clean lifestyle before clean was a thing. “My family visited naturopaths and were part of an organic food co-op long before organic grocery stores were trending,” she says. With encouragement from her mother, Plavsic set out to recreate her favorite tinted lip balm using nontoxic ingredients. “In 2011, Ilia launched with a version of that product, known as our Tinted Lip Conditioner,” she says. “[It’s] a hybrid balm-meets-lipstick with buildable, wearable shades that really nourish the lips.” Since then, the brand’s identity has not wavered, and the hits just keep on coming. Bestsellers include its Limitless Lash Mascara, Multi-Stick and True Skin Serum Concealer, and Rachel Brosnahan and Olivia Wilde are fans. The brand is based in Laguna Beach, where the Serbian Plavsic lives with her husband and two daughters. Living under constant sun, Plavsic’s daily skincare routine always starts with the brand’s skincare, makeup and Super Serum Skin Tint SPF40, which is silicone-free and uses natural emulsifiers. She follows with True Skin Serum Concealer, a touch of Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment on her cheeks, and a swipe of the brand’s newest launch: Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil, which is packed with hydrating actives like hyaluronic acid and Salicornia (a sea succulent). “Now more than ever, people want to look and feel good—with less makeup,” says Plavsic. iliabeauty.com

Shizen Inverso credenza, designer India Foster; Fossil table; Largo box

alm Beach native and resident India Foster put in years as an interior designer at her mother’s acclaimed design firm, Leta Austin Foster, with offices in Palm Beach and New York City. Her work has included projects from historical preservation to new, modern construction. “I worked on such a wide breadth of projects and with such discerning clients that I ended up developing a lot of custom designs,” says Foster. “I really enjoyed the process of collaborating with metal artists, woodworkers, textile designers and stone fabricators to bring these concepts to life.” She was able to build a great network of relationships with local talent, so it was only a matter of time before she branched out on her own. Now, she’s launching furniture brand Shizen (“nature” in Japanese), all fabricated

using organic materials. We spoke to Foster about this natural progression. shizenstudio.com

What made you want to showcase the work of local artisans in this way? As a fourth-generation Floridian, I have always been inspired by our sublime subtropical surroundings and distinct cultural history, so ideas for vernacular designs have been forming for years. I wanted to create a brand known for sophisticated designs crafted by hand in SoFlo. Over the last decade, there has been an explosion of artistic expression here, so the timing is perfect. What void in the furniture market did you see that you wanted to address? As the daughter of a decorator, I grew up going to many studios and workrooms run by talented local artisans. Over the

years, as designers and clients started sourcing materials from the global market and using bigger operations in faraway cities, many of these places disappeared. Now, I sense that the tide has shifted. Tell us about the materials you source for the furniture. The raw goods are carefully procured from the region. The wood comes from trees felled by storms or timbers reclaimed using modern technology. Each piece of stone is a handpicked remnant from a local project. The alligator skins are sustainably wild-caught from the southeastern United States. I design and produce all of the pieces in collaboration with local artists and craftspeople, who masterfully elevate these materials into sophisticated designs. What’s special about these pieces? Savvy customers have grown weary of that which is available to anyone, anywhere. To be sure, there is a place for massproduced pieces in the modern home, but without handmade objects—textiles, art, furniture—a living space has no life force, no identity, no soul. I’ve tried to create functional pieces that add richness to any style of home.

pril Gargiulo, founder of Vintner’s Daughter, struggled with her skin her entire life. Acne, discoloration, you name it—and she tried all the luxury products she read about in glossy magazines. She was alarmed to learn that these products had very little active ingredients and a lot of filler. “This was the genesis of Vintner’s Daughter,” explains the Napa Valley native, whose family founded Gargiulo Vineyards in Oakville in 1992. “I wanted to build a true luxury skincare company that made products from the finest ingredients in the world, using time-honored techniques. I wanted to build a skincare company on the very same philosophical foundations and principles as fine winemaking.” She was and remains passionate about marrying her passion for winemaking with her desire to create the finest skincare products. “When I first began looking for a place to make Active Botanical Serum, I was turned away over and over again by the top labs in the country,” says Gargiulo, who was steadfast in how she wanted to create this range. Her two hero products, Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum (used in this order), help skin regenerate, balance and heal. “Their formulas were created to complete one another,” says Gargiulo. “Together, they form a complete skincare system in two simple, yet powerful steps.” So’s what’s in these magical products? Their signature Phyto Radiance Infusion of nutrient-dense botanicals (think nettle, moringa, ginkgo, alfalfa, calendula, dandelion, lavender, green tea and astragalus). It takes three weeks to extract their nutrition, coupled with a two-weeklong Phyto Ferment process to amplify absorption and efficacy. Hyaluronic acid, natural vitamin C, three plant stem cell complexes, probiotics, prebiotics, marine algae and gentle microexfoliators keep skin plump, firm, smooth, even and glowing. In a sea of brands that release a new product every month and expand into new categories annually, Vintner’s Daughter has been methodical and slow about how it launches these game-changing products.

“From concept to final formulation took two years for Active Botanical Serum and four for Active Treatment Essence,” Gargiulo explains. “Of course, creating product after product increases your sales, but we are not driven by revenue; we are driven by integrity and skin health. This is not to say we will never release a new product. I hope we will, and when we do, our customers will know that it offers something that no other product does.” The brand is also serious about giving back. From its inception, Vintner’s Daughter has given 2 percent of its revenue to charities benefiting women and children worldwide like Every Mother Counts, Black Mamas Matter and Color of Change. vintnersdaughter.com

Pared-down skincare brand Monastery blends natural ingredients with a luxury feel. Its founder, San Francisco aesthetician Athena Hewett, has been working in the industry for 20 years and started mixing botanicals for skincare after a bout with acne. “When I opened my first private skincare studio 10 years ago, I decided to use all of my own recipes in the treatment room,” she explains. Hewett felt like all skincare product lines contained the same chemicals and she wasn’t excited by what was on the market. “Sadly, skincare, especially professional skincare, felt like a marketing scam to me.” Her new serene, minimalist skin clinic in Noe Valley offers bespoke

“ A Great Opera Artist John Giorno led an action-packed

BY EDWARD ESPITIA

very person can look back on their life and see a great opera,” said artist, activist and poet John Giorno about his own extraordinary life. Giorno became enveloped in the New York art world after a brief but significant romance with Andy Warhol, during which he appeared as the subject of Warhol’s first film, “Sleep,” in 1963. Giorno created poetry, paintings, film and installations in his studio on the Bowery for over 50 years until his death in October 2019 at the age of 82. He is best known for melding his poetry with more tactile and interactive mediums. In 1968, “Dial-a-Poem” encouraged people to call in to hear his friends and fellow artists read poetry recorded from live performances. His well-known, ultragraphic text paintings of the last few decades, rendered in the crisp type Mark Michaelson developed for him in 1984, feature succinct and stirring passages excerpted from his poetry. Giorno was a pioneer among pioneers, an artist’s artist. He was an openly gay, Buddhist, sex-positive artist working in a time when gay artists remained closeted for fear of losing patrons. He remained a constant in a f lash-in-the-pan scene. In his memoir, Great Demon Kings: A Memoir of Poetry, Sex, Art, Death, and Enlightenment (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), completed just before his death, the artist recounts his years spent creating with the likes of Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and countless other “It” people in the revolving door of New York artists. His final exhibition, DO THE UNDONE, opened at Sperone Westwater on the Bowery just before his death—a fitting location for the lifelong Lower East Side resident.
