asamigos founder Rande Gerber has perpetually had his fingers on the pulse of the latest trends. In 2017, Gerber, with longtime friends George Clooney and Mike Meldman, sold Casamigos Tequila to Diageo for $1 billion (the trio stayed on board and Gerber remains in charge). Made initially for family and friends, Casamigos found immediate success after launching, becoming the fastest growing and most popular tequila in the world. Perhaps lesser known is that Gerber also has a commanding grasp on design. From tequila bottles to handpicking every last piece of furniture in the Malibu cool Casamigos HQ, there is no limit to his abilities. Speaking of the office, Gerber was ahead of the curve, years ago creating an office space that was less office and more living room. (People even came in thinking it was a furniture showroom, going straight to the couches.) Outfitted with the usual essentials like desks and chairs, the Casamigos HQ also features cool custom pieces, like a pool table that turns into a conference table – the ultimate workspace vibe. Over the last few years, Gerber has shown his expertise expands beyond the world of tequila and into the world of fashion. “I’m always looking for the best,” says Gerber, founder of Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal. “The best slice of pizza, the best t-shirt and, of course, the best tequila. When I can’t find the best, I create it, which is how, after over 700 ‘sample’ bottles, Casamigos was born. And because I’m always creating for myself, I never compromise or settle for anything less than perfect.” The latest bottle design – Casamigos Mezcal – is a testament to that. “Simplicity in design is often more difficult than more complicated designs. I always go for understated and let the product speak for itself,” says Gerber. “When I think of mezcal, I think of something rough and smoky with an edge to it. I wanted our bottle to have that feel and the personality of the family that makes it. The end result is a bottle with a unique texture that changes as it gets passed around.” Made in Oaxaca, Mexico with 100% Espadín Agaves, Casamigos Mezcal ( Joven) rests up to 2 months and is balanced and elegant with hints of tamarind and pomegranate aromas that are followed by herbal tones of fresh mint and dried oregano. Delicate notes of smoke and black pepper lead to a long, silky finish.

Casamigos Mezcal inspired a limited-edition watch crafted in partnership with OMEGA. Designed by Gerber, the timepiece features a 45.5 mm case crafted from black ceramic, which is finished in a unique matte texture inspired by the Casamigos Mezcal bottle. On the matte black ceramic dial, the wording is highlighted in the exact shade of teal as the trademarked Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal agave logo: a color also used on the tips of two of the four hands. Retailing at $11,600 with only 80 pieces made, the watch successfully sold out in a matter of days, though Gerber personally has the original prototype and one of the individually numbered, limited watches. “Design is very personal to me. When I designed the Casamigos Mezcal bottle, the key was to create something unique that I want to have on my bar. We used the same philosophy for our OMEGA collaboration – we worked closely to design something that was true to us and that we want to wear,” says Gerber.

Gerber most recently turned his design focus toward fashion, creating a custom pant with Bleusalt.

Mezcal, the Casa Moto boot was a long time in the making, coming to life after over a year and 30 samples.

“I was jealous that Cindy and Kaia got to design their own, so I asked our friend Lyndie [Bleusalt founder] if I could, and she said of course. I wanted to design a pant that was super comfortable, that I didn’t have to change out of when I left the house,” says Gerber. “The Casa Pant is perfect for both.”

“When my friends at Thursday Boot asked me to partner with them to design the ultimate boot, I took all my favorite boots and combined those details into the Casa Moto,” says Gerber. “Made with the highest-quality, softest leather to ensure ultimate comfort, but rugged enough on your favorite ride.”

Made from sustainable fabrics, the pants were designed to be more fitted, so they don’t appear like your typical sweatpants, making them work both as loungewear around the house or elevated athleisure for running errands. You can still snag a pair of The Casa Pant on Bleusalt’s website (bleusalt.com) in navy, dark gray or black for $185.

The people agreed. On its launch day, the Casa Moto boot sold out and so did the subsequent restocks.

His latest design is with Thursday Boot, creating the definitive motorcycle boot – the Casa Moto. Just like Casamigos Tequila and

Gerber’s well-trained eye knows best, and you could say he has the Midas touch when it comes to designing essentially anything. “I’ve always been interested in all types of design. Whether it’s architecture, furniture, clothing or my Casamigos bottles,” says Gerber. “I guess I’m kind of a design junkie.”

n experienced boat owner, Rafael Nadal has been passionate about yachting since childhood, and seizes every opportunity to be on the sea with friends and family. The idea to build a customised catamaran has been part of the superstar athlete’s plans for a while. Seduced by both the yacht’s design and living space, he joined the Sunreef Yachts’ family of owners. Shortly after taking delivery, Nadal and his family celebrated his 34th birthday onboard the 80 Sunreef, GREAT WHITE. Ocean Independence took the opportunity to chat to Nadal about his affinity with the ocean and his treasured yacht. Ocean Independence (OI): Tell us about Rafael as a child.

Rafael Nadal: “Since I was a kid, I fell in love with the sea. I have a lot of great childhood memories of going out on a small boat with my family and friends. We usually went out early in the morning and came back late in the afternoon - those are very nice memories. When I was young, I was super happy with this small boat that my father owned, and I never dreamt about owning any type of boat. Of course, later I wanted to have my own boat, but the main thing I had in mind was to continue doing what I did when I was a kid, just with a little bit more comfort. I still just want to share great moments with my friends and family and discover the ocean, discover beautiful places that we have here around the island and visit different countries.”

OI: What is it like to own an amazing Sunreef? Do you like the feeling of great open space? “I’m from Mallorca, I find it difficult to imagine my life without the sea, so I’m very excited about my new boat, also because I’ve never owned a catamaran before. I’ve known Sunreef Yachts for years and my impression of the company has always been great. Since I visited their catamarans for the first time during the Cannes Show years ago, I always thought catamarans have amazing advantages because of the amount of space you have on the boat and the comfort is unbelievable. When I saw the 80, I said, ‘Wow, that’s huge!’ I went inside and loved it. I also knew it was the biggest boat I could have in the small port of my village. I asked Sunreef if they produce a power version, because today I don’t have a lot of time for sailing. Sometimes I like to go and come back on the same day or next morning to keep practicing my tennis, so when I was presented with the project 80 Power, I fell in love.” OI: Where do you like to cruise? “Most of the time I’m around the Balearic Islands, because at this point of my life I don’t have much time to cruise long distances. I’m super excited about spending a lot of time on the boat and I’d love to visit the whole Mediterranean like Croatia, Greece, Italy, as well as the Caribbean. Our planet is an amazing, beautiful place. There are plenty of spots I’d like to visit, and I hope I have the chance to go to some undiscovered destinations in the future. Now, I’m still playing tennis and don’t have much time, but I hope I’ll have time to go on these adventures when I’m retired.”

OI: Your favorite location? “I’ve chartered catamarans a couple of times in the Bahamas, in the Exuma Islands, and I loved it. The Exumas are one of my favorite places, so I try to go back there when I can, and I’d love to go with GREAT WHITE, my Sunreef 80. It would be amazing to visit all these remarkable places. I’ve been able to spend so much time with friends and family this year, so having the new boat here has been a great opportunity to stay together in a positive atmosphere. We’ve put a lot of love into the project, choosing everything,” Nadal says. “I’m super happy with the boat. It’s very special for me, my family and friends. During the tennis season, I don’t have much time for boating, but I always try to find some. When I come home, I like to take the boat out, winter or summer. When I spend, say, a week on a yacht, I always take my things and do my daily workout to protect my shoulders and knees. I try to swim a lot and I enjoy free diving very much. It’s not good for a professional sportsman to stop exercising completely, so I stay active!” Whether you are looking to purchase the latest model of yacht or arrange an idyllic charter getaway, the team of professional brokers at Ocean Independence can assist in all your yachting plans.

rain & Barrel Spirits announces the introduction of the newest brand in its portfolio, High Goal Luxury Gin. Born of the sport of polo and gleaning inspiration from the culinary epicenter of Charleston, South Carolina, where the gin is produced, High Goal is a “New World” gin that utilizes hints of citrus and mint in its unique blend of regionally-focused botanicals. The original vision of serial spirits entrepreneur Matti Christian Anttila, Co-Founder and CEO of Grain and Barrel Spirits (Dixie Southern Vodka, Chicken Cock Whiskey, Cabana Rum and Endless Summer Spirits), High Goal is produced in small batches of just 3,000 bottles at a time. Developed over the course of more than a year of meticulous taste testing, it’s infused with botanicals sourced directly from across America’s Southeast including Mint, Meyer Lemon, Juniper, Coriander and Cardamom, resulting in a light and refreshing drinking experience. It is best served on the rocks with a slice of lemon and fresh mint, though it can also be enjoyed with a high-quality tonic or stirred into a mixed cocktail.

“Gin has been the fastest growing spirits category outside of the US for many years. The beauty of gin is that you can create a unique formula from the botanicals. Beyond Juniper, there’s an open landscape you can play with,” said Anttila. “When we decided to create the first premium American gin, we needed to think about ingredients local to where it would be distilled. We wanted High Goal to represent the region it’s from and that’s driven its formulation. It’s open and accessible; American gin, reimagined.” High Goal is brought to life through the iconic face and voice of American Polo Player and High Goal Co-Founder Nic Roldan, who discovered firsthand a love of gin whilst playing tournaments in the United Kingdom, including the prestigious Queen’s Cup.

Developing an admiration for the classic spirit, he began to seek out partners with the same entrepreneurial drive to create something stateside; something that would resonate with both longtime gin drinkers and those who were new to the spirit. It was at a casual polo match amongst friends in Wellington, Florida, where CoFounder Diego Urrutia introduced Roldan to Anttila, the trio recognizing not only their mutual love for the sport and the lifestyle surrounding it, but a shared vision to create the first American luxury gin. Said Roldan, “Given polo’s global nature, and gin’s global nature, the two fit so well together. When we started discussing the concept, we knew quite quickly that we had something incredibly special. High Goal is the term for the highest level of play in polo, but it’s so much more than that, it’s a lifestyle. We’re aiming for High Goal Gin to stand at the pinnacle of this lifestyle as the ultimate premium gin on the market.” www.HighGoalGin.com

Windless days in the mountains with a reflective lake in the background is a rare sight. However, it’s not something you think about when you have a dog staring at you.

The wild Norwegian fjords unleashing their true self. The Norwegian fjords are often chaotic. Wind, rain, and huge waves. But one thing about Norway is that the places with the worst weather can also be the most stunning places during great weather days.

Running wild in the ferns is one of Troja’s favorite things to do, the feeling of ferns brushing against her fur is a therapeutic experience.

In the moment and one with nature, a form of art few have mastered besides dogs.

As the sun was setting, Troja spotted a herd of deer in the distance. The Irish setter breed is made for hunting, something one can truly notice during hikes where there are a lot of wild animals.

Spring and Summer are Troja’s favorite parts of the year as she finally can enjoy swimming in the lake and sprint around on the sand. However, do not be fooled by the high temperatures, in the background you can still spot some snow and the water comes running down from the mountains into the lake, making it ice cold yet refreshing.

Every time you gaze lovingly into your dogs’ eyes, its levels of oxytocin — the “attachment hormone” — go up. And so do yours. Oxytocin has long been referred to as “the love hormone” and the “cuddle hormone,” because we (and our pets) release it when we hug, touch, or look lovingly into someone’s eyes.

We hiked to the top of a mountain on a summer night, we laid down on the soft moss to enjoy the warm light from the sunset while taking a nap on the soft moss. One of those moments that can’t be bought.

Angels appear in many different forms, one of them has four paws and a wagging tail.

want a golf club that looks like a blade. Plays like a cavity back. Launches higher. Goes farther. Feels amazing. Is incredibly forgiving. And is unbelievably sexy.” It’s Bob Parsons’ new and unique vision that pushed him to create the global phenomenon - PXG PXG founder and CEO, Bob Parsons’ passion for golf and obsession with the tools of the trade came to a head following a serendipitous nine holes when he met former PGA TOUR player and golf club designer, Mike Nicolette. The two struck up a friendship and an ongoing dialog about equipment. A few years later Parsons established Scottsdale National Research Center, which would eventually become PXG, bringing Nicolette and Brad Schweigert on board to dive deeper into the equipment industry. From the very start, PXG has manufactured equipment in a very different manner. Fundamentally the company bears little relation to the established big beasts of the golf equipment market. No cost constraints, no time constraints on engineering, and the team has always maintained an unapologetic focus on performance. Their mission … to harness the potential of existing and new technologies alike to deliver the world’s finest golfing equipment and experience. The resounding difference – a company determined to elevate the performance of the individual and increase enjoyment on the course.

To start checking off the boxes on Parsons’ vision, “looks like a blade, plays like a cavity back,” the team determined that a hollow-body design was a must. The challenge, hollow-body irons feel like swinging a lead pipe. Parsons, having served in the military as a U.S. Marine Corps 0311 Combat Rifleman during the Vietnam War, recalled a material known as sorbothane, frequently found in the butt of a rifle to absorb recoil. Parsons suggested to his team that the cavity be filled with something such as that. And with that one idea, Parsons inspired an engineering breakthrough that would not only put PXG on the map, but also flip the golf industry on its head. PXG 0311 irons debuted an injection molded TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) core, a not so bright but oh so beautiful material that brought a whole new level of “wow” to striking a golf ball. When Nic Roldan, the one and only face of American Polo got his hands on a PXG club, he exclaimed, “It’s an amazing brand, amazing beliefs and really really good product. I particularly love the drivers, especially the way they minimise dispersion”. A stroke of luck inspired PXG’s signature industrial look. To demonstrate mass properties in layman’s terms, Schweigert drilled holes in a club head and manually added weights around the perimeter. Not only did the perimeter weighting achieve the performance goals desired, the look stopped Parsons in his tracks. Another box checked! The weights were distinctive, functional and 100% PXG. And so, across the board, visible weighting became PXG’s signature. These two pivotal moments laid the foundation for the introduction of PXG’s groundbreaking technology. Technology so good, it was actually put in play on the PGA TOUR by Ryan Moore months before the company ever sold a stick.

Every club made by PXG is customized to fit the needs of the player. A personalized fitting experience is the standard for PXG. Which means, effectively, no two sets of PXG clubs are exactly alike. PXG’s fitting specialists have been considered among the best in the business. They are both product and fitting experts, trained by the engineers who had a hand in designing PXG clubs. And, like Parsons, they’re golf enthusiasts. The process first offers a comprehensive overview of a player’s current setup, natural tendencies, and personal goals. During the data rich experience, fitters also look to identify the metrics that will help each golfer put together consistently better rounds. Whether fitted in-person or over the phone, the one-on-one experience leaves you thinking, “why would anyone purchase golf clubs off the rack?” Nic Roldan had this to say about the entire fitting experience, “PXG really makes you feel you are part of the PXG family, also known as ‘PXG Troops’. Doing a fitting at my home golf club was an awesome experience, and their team is second to none. A must do experience for any passionate golfer. It will blow your mind!” Following a fitting, club specifications are provided to PXG’s master builders. These guys are true craftsmen – the tailors, blacksmiths and brewers of golf. They assemble every club with the utmost care and precision. Once built, the clubs are closely inspected, black-boxed and prepared for delivery. So out of one man’s vision rises the best opportunity that technology currently allows for golfers to maximize their game. PXG currently offers a full lineup of high-performance drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters, PXG GEN4 Golf Clubs. The future of golf club performance has arrived with the all-new PXG GEN4 Golf Clubs, the product of years of research and testing, combining specialized materials never before used in golf to produce incredible sound and feel, unbelievable forgiveness, explosive distance, and dropdead gorgeous looks. These flagship clubs include drivers, fairways, hybrids, and irons—each optimized to suit your swing and enhance your performance. The PXG 2021 0211 Driver has a versatile head design to promote confidence on the tee. With an incredible balance of mind blowing distance, unbelievable forgiveness, and astonishing ball speed, our allnew PXG 2021 0211 Drivers are so good, they’ll knock your hat in a creek! Elevate your short game in 2021 with PXG’s Battle Ready Putters. Fully optimized – from the center-of-gravity (CG) and moment of inertia (MOI), to stability, balance, and weighting – the new Bat Attack and Mustang deliver maximum performance for putts from every distance. PXG also offers a bold, fashion-forward apparel collection spearheaded by President and Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel Renee Parsons, including the fantastic new Spring/Summer Collection 2021. As Nic Roldan puts it, “The clothing line Renee Parsons has developed is awesome, original designs with high-end technological materials”. PXG.com

Abeckaser, AnnaSophia Robb, Minka Kelly, David Cade, David James Elliott and John Magaro. “Aside from being a crime film, Lansky is also an important historical piece about the immigrant experience in America. Often in life things are not just black and white, good or bad, but there is a thin grey line between the two. Lansky was one of those people who walked that line like a funambulist”, says Director Eytan Rockaway. David Stone (Sam Worthington), a renowned but down-on-his-luck writer, has the opportunity of a lifetime when he receives a surprise call from Meyer Lansky (Academy Award nominee Harvey Keitel). For decades, authorities have been trying to locate Lansky’s alleged nine-figure fortune and this is their last chance to capture the aging gangster before he dies. With the FBI close behind, and Abeckaser as one of the lead FBI Agents, the Godfather of organized crime reveals the untold truth about his life as the notorious boss of Murder Inc. and the National Crime Syndicate.

Abeckaser departs from his standard mob roles for this part, playing an FBI agent showcasing a new side of his depth as an actor, alongside Worthington and longtime friend Keitel who starred in his directorial debut, First We Take Brooklyn. His next film, I LOVE US, a feature romantic drama he stars in and directs, due out in September, further shows his range. LANSKY was directed and written by Eytan Rockaway, produced by Jeff Hoffman, Robert Ogden Barnum, Lee Broda, and Eric Binns, with cinematography by Peter Flinckenberg, editing by Steven Rosenblum and Martin Hunter, and original music by Max Aruj. LANSKY Producer Jeff Hoffman says “All of the performances are incredible – Keitel is masterful and penetrating, Worthington is gritty and determined, and Magaro was the perfect choice to play the younger Lansky/Keitel. Abeckaser brings dynamic presence in his role as FBI agent. Rockaway does a sensational job telling this remarkable story portraying the complex personality of an historically important gangster known as the Mob’s Accountant.”

legendary company from the start, Sintor Trucks was founded from the pursuit of the perfect balance of performance and style in a diesel powered truck. The founders of Sintor have deep roots in the automotive industry and have always felt a void in the luxury truck market. Sintor started as a concept to wow both the truck community and the supercar community. Their mission was to build the world’s first Supertruck. One of the essential steps in any project is the foundation. The Ford SuperDuty was the ideal platform to build the first Sintor. The 6.7L Powerstroke engine is extremely reliable and has the torque to pull up to 30,000 pounds. A carbon fiber hood scoop and grille complete the aggressive look that everyone desires in a SuperTruck. Why Carbon Fiber? When Carbon Fiber is mixed with the correct epoxy resins, it is many times stronger than metal. Not only is Carbon Fiber stronger than metal and fiberglass, it’s also incredibly light. This is why manufacturers of everything from airplanes to boats are embracing carbon fiber over metal or fiberglass alternatives. Elevated asked Brian George, the Founder fo Sintor Trucks, a few questions to dive deeper into what it mean to build and buy a Sintor Truck. Elevated: What defines a Sintor Truck? Brian George: The massive 46” tires mixed with Ford Raptor styling utilizing our carbon fiber fenders. When we set out to build a Sintor not only did it have to look like a show piece it had to perform too. We drive our stuff and we drive them hard. We wanted Sintor to do well on all elements of on and off road.

What is the process of building a Sintor from a Ford Super Duty truck? We take a stock F250,350 0r 450 strip it down to the cab, engine, trans and frame, then build it back from there. Virtually every piece of the axles and suspension is either replaced or modified. Bigger brakes, coil over conversion, regearing, widened rear axles, etc. From the suspension we move on to the body. To make the truck more proportioned and to fit that “Raptor” theme, the headlights are pushed out about 6”. This requires a whole new sub frame to be fabricated and installed. Once all the framework has been done the truck is sent off to body and paint. Most builds are a factory paint match but we can and have done full body color changes. Once it comes back from the body and paint all the fun stuff gets installed, wheels, tires, lights, bumpers etc. Once everything is installed and our safety inspections are complete, the truck gets road tested and then delivered to the customer. The entire build process takes about 90 days depending on options.

Tell us about the suspension on a Sintor Truck. In addition to every Sintor using a F450 front axle, our Sintor suspension uses Fox Coil Over shocks (Kings are optional). The front end comes standard with 2.5 Coil Over Shocks and 2.5 bypass shocks are on all 4 corners. In the rear, we use a soft rate leaf spring setup giving you a substantially smoother ride and if you match that with our optional long travel airbags, it will maintain close to factory towing specs. What has been one of your favorite builds? We get asked this a lot. I always say….the next one. We love creating, building and pushing the envelope on every build the wilder and more outside the box the better. What are some future projects you’re excited about? Two specifically come to mind. We are in the process of developing an Overland Sintor build. The second would be a build a previous customer has commissioned us to build. Unfortunately, we have to keep it under wraps until SEMA but we are really excited to show it off when it’s done! www.Sintor.com

f you ask wine connoisseurs to name the most famous wine area in the world, many would cite the brilliant Loire Valley in central France, a UNESCO World Heritage Region. It’s famous for its châteaux, medieval towns, rolling hills and worldclass wines. Kings, queens, dukes and aristocrats travelled here to build their châteaux from as early as the 9th century – that’s why the area is sprinkled with some of France’s most opulent estates. Many of these are just a stone’s throw away from Les Bordes Estate and Golf Club. Neighboring the historic village of Beaugency and approximately 90 minutes south of Paris, Les Bordes is spread across 1,400 acres of the Sologne Forest. It was originally established in 1987 by Baron Marcel Bich, with lanes weaving between the forest, glimpses of red deer, wild boar and pheasants, sweeping lakes and natural clearings. In addition to countless outdoor pursuits for the whole family, the Estate is home to the world renowned Les Bordes Golf Club – a private members golf club which aims to consistently offer the best combined 46 holes of golf in continental Europe. Les Bordes is making it possible for people to be part of a community that radiates connection with each other and the bountiful Loire Valley. The Estate will become a gratifying playground for members and real estate owners, with access to endless activities and adventures at their fingertips. Masterfully designed in a safe and secure environment, they can enjoy fully serviced, hassle-free home ownership year-round.

Adventure abounds at Les Bordes. Some of the amenities include equestrian facilities, walking and cycling trails, and a natural swimming lake with white sand beach. Archery, fishing, and a tennis center are others, and zip lines are coming later this year.

development of new homes in varying styles that remain distinct to the local architecture. Each residence and property has been individually oriented by Michaelis Boyd to get the most from the light and sunshine whilst ensuring optimum energy efficiency.

Les Bordes was created in response to a growing demand for community living centered around wellness and a wholesome, coveted lifestyle. Set amongst a woodland with a variety of natural features, the project is founded on core values of sustainability, respectfully using the unspoiled landscape to create areas for the community to enjoy.

London-based Morpheus & Co are the creatives behind the residential interiors and have designed a variety of furniture collections for future owners, combining tactile and relaxing interiors with biophilic features for a feeling of comfort and inspiration, and immersion into the surrounding environment both inside and out.

Michaelis Boyd, known for their work designing interiors for Soho House (LA, Berlin, Oxfordshire), and The Groucho member’s club in London, were tasked with injecting new, invigorating life into the existing clubhouse and 24 members’ cabins and designing the residential

Red and roe deer roam freely throughout the land. Natural surroundings have an invaluable positive impact on both physical and emotional health, and the Estate has embraced this by creating facilities and services that promote wellness amid Mother Nature’s masterworks.

Chateau Bel Air

Separate from the residential community, Les Bordes Golf Club is exclusively private and governed separately from the rest of the estate. The opening of its highly anticipated second 18-hole course will take place this summer. Named the New Course, it was created by globally acclaimed golf architect Gil Hanse, who authored world top-100 courses Castle Stuart and Ohoopee Match Club as well as the 2016 Rio Olympic Course. The New Course is Hanse’s first project in continental Europe. Lauded for his restoration work including two of the next three US Open venues – The Country Club and The Los Angeles Country Club – Hanse has already completed work on an accompanying 10-hole short course at Les Bordes. Named The Wild Piglet, Golf.com immediately placed it in its top-25 par-3 courses in the world. The recently developed new golf courses join the existing Old Course (Robert von Hagge design), to provide members with a diverse yet complementary array of playing options. Commissioned by Baron Marcel Bich in 1987, the Old Course is one of Europe’s premier golf courses. A tree-lined, par-72 course measuring more than 7,000 yards, it weaves through the Sologne Forest, intertwined with a stunning complex of lakes that offer a sublimely serene setting. Widely considered to be Von Hagge’s masterpiece, the Old Course has been consistently ranked amongst the top three courses in Europe over the past 30 years. In addition to creating the New Course and Wild Piglet, Hanse spent time revitalizing some aspects of the Old Course, reinvigorating the acclaimed layout and enhancing its high quality.

The New Course

In addition to the two 18-hole courses and the par-3 course, the club offers members and their guests’ access to a number of other club facilities. These include driving range, short game practice area, two practice putting greens, a new putting course designed by Hanse (“The Himalyas”), clubhouse including members bar and outdoor terrace, finely appointed locker rooms, private lounge with indoor golf simulator, games room and library, and 24/7 restaurant. Formed in August 2019, it is accessible to members only and their guests, and includes members of Pine Valley, Merion, Riviera, Sunningdale, Royal St. George’s, LA Country Club, Friar’s Head and Royal Melbourne among the approximately 150 current members. Additionally, Michaelis Boyd completed a full renovation of the clubhouse and 24 of the 39 member cottages thus far, while work on a new member gym, sports bar and private lounge and games room, including golf simulator, was recently completed. Near-term plans include the announced partnership with Six Senses for the transformation of the on-site 19th century ‘Chateau Bel Air’ into an 88-key luxury hotel and spa. Also, the creation of a community village square with restaurants, shops, a farmer’s market and outdoor amphitheater centered around the estate’s 13th century priory, and, of course, the variety of residential homes architecturally designed by Michaelis Boyd, to which there has been a lot of interest from existing golf members prior to the general release.

liver Peoples partners with fashion house, FRÈRE, to create two exclusive, new eyewear styles. The collaboration merges the brands’ shared focus of exceptional craftsmanship and elevated design. The collaboration takes form in the striking campaign featuring a fashion powerhouse roster starring supermodel, Jasmine Tookes, and FRÈRE designer, Davidson Petit-Frère, styled by Zerina Akers shot by acclaimed photographer, Dennis Leupold, at the iconic, Pierre Koenig-designed, Stahl House. This mid-century modern landmark, built in 1959, was created in hopes of reimagining modernist design for residential architecture. Much like the driving, design force of the Stahl House, the collaboration between FRÈRE and Oliver Peoples aims to fuse together innovative design to a vintage-inspired aesthetic. FRÈRE, established by Davidson Petit-Frère, has become the voice of modern fashion. Known for specializing in men’s and women’s handmade couture while finding innovation in classic silhouettes, FRÈRE has outfitted some of the biggest names in music, sports and entertainment as well as worldwide figures.

Stahl House

Oliver Peoples, whose founding and aesthetic is ingrained and inspired by the culture of the film, arts, and music scene in Los Angeles, paired naturally with the design aesthetic of FRÈRE – in which both brands find that bold design can be achieved alongside superior artistry. The Oliver Peoples FRÈRE collaboration launches two new frames, FRÈRE LA and FRÈRE NY. FRÈRE LA blends the identities of both brands to create a stylish combination eyewear style with acetate and metal detailing. FRÈRE NY plays into the vintageinspired aesthetic of Oliver Peoples and the classic tailoring of FRÈRE to create a timeless eyewear style with custom design details and a strikingly, flattering fit made to work with every face. The colorways in the collection offer an ode to FRÈRE, with custom shades of Sage and Mauve inspired by the designs of Davidson Petit-Frère, as well as touches of classic OP with exclusive tortoise acetates including 362 and DM2. To balance the group, the frames also feature a sophisticated black with dark lenses and a wearable, translucent acetate with transparent Blue Block lenses. Both frames are accentuated with a custom filigree pattern developed exclusively for the collaboration. Inspired by an intricate art deco engraving on a vintage lighter, the filigree appears on the metal corewire of FRÈRE NY and the metal temple of FRÈRE LA. Each pair also includes an exclusive packaging set. FRÈRE’s signature, brand color, Mauve, and the Oliver Peoples FRÈRE logo can be found throughout the set which consists of a custom-designed hard case with a plush outer shell, a branded pouch, and a microfiber cleaning cloth.

wiss watch manufacturer Perrelet is renowned for its patented Double Rotor and Turbine technology, two inventions that single out its timepieces in the vast watchmaking landscape. For some time now, the Maison has limited communication regarding its behindthe-scene activities. During this period, the Maison has been busy restructuring the brand with a marked emphasis on Research & Development with the aim of consolidating the excellent quality and reliability of its watches. While the brand remained silent on the restructuring front, there has been no shortage of press releases regarding new products. The first sign of renewal at Perrelet was announced at the end of 2019, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the Turbine family. To celebrate the occasion, Perrelet unveiled the TURBINE EVO collection. With an updated design and a brand-new metal bracelet, the most exciting novelty was the incorporation of the brand’s first-ever COSC chronometer-certified automatic movement.

This milestone marked the beginning of a new era for Perrelet. It offered irrefutable proof of the brand’s desire to pursue the path of innovation set out by master watchmaker Abraham Louis Perrelet when he founded the brand in 1777. As the precursor of the self-winding movement, automatic movements are an integral part of the brand’s DNA. Thanks to the hands-on approach of Miguel Rodriguez, the owner and the president of the brand, Perrelet is ready to face a new challenge in the 21st century. His vision is to equip Perrelet’s distinctive timepieces with new-generation automatic calibers that meet the exceptional quality and high mechanical performance required by Swiss Haute Horlogerie standards. As Miguel Rodriguez points out: “We have the advantage of owning several movements and components production

sites combined with a prestigious heritage that sets us apart as one of the leading independent watchmakers in Switzerland. All this represents enormous added value for Perrelet, which relies on SOPROD for the development – in complete autonomy – of its exclusive calibers with their outstanding functionality, resilience and performance.” Recently conceived, the new-generation caliber P-331-MH benefits from substantial modifications compared to its predecessor. The teeth of the escape wheel have an improved surface finish and the pallet is fitted with superior quality rubies for higher performance and to guarantee an impeccable degree of reliability. Furthermore, the new lubricating system of the reversers allows for the optimum performance of the bidirectional winding system. The balancewheel is also fitted with a double-cone Incabloc® shock absorber that increases protection against impact.

efore we wore time, we heard it. Clocks made by brilliant craftsmen who would, through miniaturization, create domestic clocks and handheld timepieces, capable of loudly striking the passing hours. Inspired by watchmaking’s past and the possibility of moving musical timekeeping into the future, Ulysse Nardin is proud to unveil the BLAST Hourstriker, an innovative new striking watch that breaks barriers in sound technology. This art of marking the time with music has always been a part of Ulysse Nardin’s technical arsenal. It was revived in the 1980s, under the impetus of Rolf Schnyder and given a new lease of life in 2019 when the Swiss Manufacture collaborated with cutting-edge French watchmaking acoustics audio technology company Devialet, to launch the Classico Hourstriker Phantom. For the BLAST Hourstriker, Ulysse Nardin’s engineers and watchmakers developed the UN-621 caliber, the brand’s first in-house automatic striking manufacture movement to be powered by a flying tourbillon. After several years in the making, Ulysse Nardin enhanced the sound by applying a proprietary acoustic system in collaboration again with Devialet. It consists of a membrane stretched over the movement that amplifies the vibrations of the strike.

When the striker is on, the mechanical ballet that makes the watch’s sound is visible on the hour and half hour markers. By pressing the button located at 10 o’clock, the mechanism, driven by a specially dedicated barrel, is triggered. The hour rack and the inertia regulator start to turn the hammers, visible in an opening made at 12 o’clock, hit the gong whose shape has been subtly worked to bypass the cage of the flying tourbillon. An exceptional mechanism requires an exceptional case, so Ulysse Nardin decided to encase a movement inspired by the power of stealth airplanes. To truly allow the sound of the BLAST Hourstriker to resonate, the distinctive 45 mm Blast case was given a black DLC titanium middle, capped with 5 N 18 kt rose gold, for improved acoustics. The $104,400 timepiece is available on a variety of straps including black alligator, rubber, and waterproof velvet.

Jojo Anavim, Lifesaver, 2020 Collage, foil, and acrylic on canvas, 30 x 40 in.

Jojo Anavim New York City based artist Jojo Anavim has established his body of work stemming from a background in graphic design and brand development. Previously a creative consultant for brands such as W Hotels, and Universal Music Group, Anavim crossed over fulltime to fine art in 2013. His work continually employs bold color palettes, acrylic paint, oil stick, collage scraps, found items and advertisements Anavim has been collecting since his childhood.  He is known for elevating the mundane by transforming everyday items into objects of transcendence.  The paintings oscillate freely between playful and subversive. Triggered by his fascination with a child-like consciousness, Anavim challenges the viewer to not only see something beautiful, but feel something as well.  As a child (until age 15) Anavim enrolled in art classes taught by Disney animator Al Baruch, creator of the legendary characters Captain Hook and Mighty Mouse. Anavim credits Baruch with instilling a creative confidence that led him to embrace art as more than

a hobby early in his life. Anavim went on to study graphic art at Hunter College. Much of Anavim’s work depict the nostalgia of the brands and packaging he was surrounded by during this time, down to the LifeSavers his grandmother would always carry in her purse. Anavim’s artworks are part of permanent collections in museums and hotels around the globe, including Dream’s Downtown and Midtown Hotel, New York, NY; Coca-Cola Archives Museum, Atlanta, GA; New York Yankees City Seats Collection, New York, NY; and Surf Lodge Hotel, Montauk, NY. Anavim is also recognized for his commissions for NBA players, business moguls and top-charting musicians including Amar’e Stoudemire, Seth McFarlane, Selena Gomez, Sheldon Adelson, Paris Hilton, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis,  and Daymond John.  Anavim’s work has been covered by global media publications including The New York Times, American Art Collector, Business Insider and Forbes - all highlighting the success of his career.




SINCE 1977




ounded in Paris in 1785 under Charles Leroy, himself the son of watchmaker, L. Leroy has written some of the finest chapters in the history of French watchmaking and chronometry, developing a wealth of technical and inventive treasures for over two centuries. This human, artistic and industrial adventure is marked by illustrious names including Marie Antoinette, Proust, Matisse, Napoleon, Queen Victoria, Roosevelt, Chopin, Nobel, Bugatti, the aviation pioneers Charles Lindbergh and Santos-Dumont, to mention but a few owners of a watch signed by L.Leroy. Right from the time of its creation, the company was officially appointed as Watchmaker to the King. The quality of Leroy watches was rapidly recognized by the powers in place in the capital and its reputation literally took off in the 19th century, both in France and around the world. As official purveyor to the imperial family as of 1805, Charles Leroy offered high-quality traditional or decimal, “tact” or chiming watches, as well as so-called “officer” clocks, without forgetting other extraordinary timepieces such as the stunning travel “alarm clock” in the shape of a snuffbox in brass and silver commissioned by the Queen Marie-Antoniette as a gift to her presumed lover, Count Axel de Fersen, Marshal of the Kingdom of Sweden and Ambassador. In 1835 L. Leroy was appointed Watchmaker to the Naval Ministry and it was expanding on all front. In 1863 the Maison earned the official title of Watchmakers to the Queen Victoria, a distinction bestowed in person by Her Majesty. The title of Watchmaker to the French Naval Ministry was an honour confirming the recipient’s supreme mastery in the art of time measurement. L. Leroy left an indelible imprint on the history of precision and the excellence of its production is confirmed by the 384 gold medals won in chronometry competitions, a total that remains an absolute record to date. The exceptional heritage of L.Leroy boasts horological pieces of art such as the Leroy 01.

This masterpiece remained the most complicated watch until 1989. It won the Grand Prix Spécial du Jury at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1900. It required seven years of work, features no less than 25 horological complications and its movement is composed of 975 parts. Moreover, as a mark of respect for the protagonists in this amazing adventure, this creation is generally described as being born of a “Swiss mother” and a “French father”, since it was developed and produced in Le Sentier, the Vallée de Joux, before being precisely adjusted in Besançon. Its recent Tourbillon Automatic Regulator offers an ultra-contemporary interpretation of this legendary system by incorporating a double balancespring and a full-diamond escapement – thus making the mechanism much lighter and harder than the others. Its chronometric stability (isochronism) enables it to achieve extremely high long-term performances far superior to those of classic systems. Today L.Leroy belongs to the narrow circle of Haute Horlogerie brands capable of presenting timepieces driven by movements entirely developed, produced and adjusted in its own Le Sentier workshops in the Vallée de Joux. The company philosophy is based on respect for its extraordinary past, which constantly nurtures its vision of the future. The current creations from the House, introduced through its OSMIOR and MARINE lines, are founded on this prestigious technical and aesthetic history, while expressing the values of timeless elegance, absolute quality and avant-garde workmanship. The name OSMIOR refers to an ancient metal alloy primarily made of gold with a color comparable to platinum. Meanwhile, the name MARINE evokes the company’s longstanding past as Watchmaker to the Naval Ministry.

ince its inception in 1955, Corum has always been on the cutting edge of design and technology, regularly taking risks with daring looks and innovative movements. That may be why the brand is known for many different icons in time, from the Coin watch to Admiral and Bubble. Easily the strongest legend in the Corum lineup, though, is the Golden Bridge watch with the world’s first-ever in-line baguette movement that was first released in 1980. Just over 30 years later, in 2011, Corum released an automatic version of the in-line movement that also took the world by storm. Now, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Automatic Golden Bridge, Corum takes another leap, unveiling a new Automatic Golden Bridge series with avant-garde case that delivers sweeping views of the meticulously finished movement. The original, almost rebellious, in-line movement was first created in the 1970’s by Vincent Calabrese. A self-taught Italian watchmaker with a passion for doing things differently, Calabrese had begun working on the idea of showcasing an incredible movement as an integral part of the overall design of the watch. He presented his patented concept, a 45- piece highly skeletonized in-line movement, at the 1977 Geneva International Inventors’ Show and the astute management at Corum immediately acquired the patent and worked with Calabrese to develop the revolutionary movement. The first Corum Golden Bridge, with movement parts made of gold, made its debut at the 1980 Basel Fair. The alluring caliber – showcased in all its glory – was an immediate success and captured hearts around the world. Since then, all of the iterations and evolutions – with their minimalist design and gorgeous baguette movement – have left an indelible impression on the watch collecting world.

Naturally, when Corum opted to create an automatic version, it turned to its strong research and design team to develop the complex caliber. The creation was more than four years in the making, as the brand tirelessly pursued a way to showcase a floating linear movement with an oscillating weight on rails. The Corum Golden bridge Automatic, unveiled in 2011, ushered in a new era for this contemporary icon. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the automatic in-line movement, Corum releases the new Golden Bridge Automatic series. Consisting of four models, the tonneau-shaped case offers a dramatic view of the movement thanks to the panoramic sapphire crystal and case back in a larger size. Also, for the first time, Corum creates the sapphire crystal as a single sapphire piece that extends from the top crystal to the sides of the watch – allowing for a 360-degree view inside. Sapphire is one of the most difficult materials to deal with as it is brittle and can break in the manufacturing process. It also requires special attention to corners and metal case connections to render the watch water resistant. However, Corum’s in-house engineers and watchmakers have mastered the process with this single piece that covers the top and sides.

The new versions feature cases created in polishable Grade 5 titanium with the crown at 6:00 for ergonomic comfort and for aesthetic appeal. They include a titanium and 18-karat gold model in a limited edition of 150 pieces, and a full titanium version in an edition of just 50 pieces. Each of these two materials are also offered with diamonds set on the case. Just 100 pieces of the diamond-set titanium-and-gold version will be produced, and only 25 of the diamond-set titanium watch will be made. Additionally, Corum has invented a discretely placed floating harness system for its handapplied indexes, yielding a highly modern and sophisticated flair. The design is actually born out of the need for function. Because there is no dial to affix the indexes to, the harness system links to the movement base so that the markers seem to be floating in space. As indicated in the series name – Golden Bridge – the main plates and bridges of the movement are in 18-karat gold for all versions. All of the 10th anniversary Golden Bridge Automatic watches boast a sapphire case back made of smoked crystal for an almost mystical look. Additionally, they are all powered by the original automatic movement that remains incredibly advanced even by today’s standards. With all of its 194 parts in one line, the exclusive Corum Caliber C0313 boasts 40 hours of power reserve, a variable inertia balance wheel for long-term precision, a miniaturized barrel and main plate, bridges made of 18- karat gold, and a platinum linear oscillating weight. Water resistant to 30 meters, the Corum Golden Bridge Automatic 10th anniversary watches are finished with a soft-touch alligator strap and triple folding clasp. If the new case and breathtaking side views aren’t enough, perhaps the best thing about this series is the amazing new entry-level price for the Golden Bridge Automatic. www.Corum-Watches.com

armigiani Fleurier brought the elegance and fine craftsmanship of its timepieces into a new and sportier echelon of luxury with the launch of the Tonda GT collection in 2020. The collection garnered immediate success and widespread acclaim from the aficionado community for its timeless design, which brought the Tonda’s luxuriously refined look into a more mainstream, daily-wear arena. The Tonda GT and its more complicated sibling, the Tondagraph GT, derive their case shape and other design cues from 2016’s Tonda Chronor Anniversaire, which not only featured Parmigiani Fleurier’s first-ever in-house integrated chronograph caliber but also famously took home the award for best Chronograph Watch at the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG). Guided by the same Golden Ratio principles applied to that milestone timepiece, and in fact to all timepieces from the fertile mind of Michel Parmigiani, Tonda GT models feature updated teardropshaped lugs for increased ergonomics, an integrated bracelet in the same materials and finishes as the case, and fluted bezels that trace their architectural ancestry to the brand’s very first watch design, the iconic Toric series. The dials host a decorative yet understated clou triangulaire guilloché motif, along with the open worked Delta-shaped hands that have become a hallmark of the Parmigiani Fleurier portfolio. The two newest additions to the growing Tonda GT collection both hail from the Tondagraph GT sub-family, though each reference offers a subtly different series of useful functions, technical capabilities, and aesthetic charms. What unites them visually and ensures their appeal to today’s connoisseur of sophisticated sporty luxury, are their dials, in the classical and crowd-pleasing bicolor style of a silvered main dial and a trio of black subdials. The juxtaposition of these two colors brings the series a further purity of design and a fresh, stylish execution that evolves naturally from the first generation of Tonda GT models.

The Tondagraph GT Steel Silver Black The Tondagraph GT Steel Silver Black features a 42-mm case, forged in polished and satin-brushed stainless steel and boasting a water resistance of 100 meters. Its silver-and-black dial adorned with clou triangulaire texture has rhodium-plated indexes treated with black luminescent coating. Like its predecessor with a black dial, the watch houses the automatic Caliber PF043. Though the watch’s name indicates that it is a chronograph, it is actually something much more special, as Caliber PF043 enables the rare horological pairing of a chronograph with an annual calendar. The familiar Delta-shaped hands with black luminescent coating display the time while the date appears prominently in a large double aperture at 12 o’clock. Subdials at 9 and 6 o’clock host the chronograph readouts and the 3 o’clock subdial serves the dual functions of a running seconds indicator and a display of the month. As in all annual calendars, this indicator requires adjustment only once per year, from February to March. The automatic movement that drives all these functions is on display behind a sapphire case back that beautifully displays the 22k gold rotor, providing a power reserve of 45 hours and showcasing a host of decorative finishes, including the circular côtes de Genève pattern on the bridges. Subtle but significant evolution in the service of legibility has long been a watchword at Parmigiani Fleurier and the Tondagraph GT Steel Silver Black edition features another example: the orange numerals and details that appeared on its black-dialed predecessor have been replaced with higher-contrast elements in white. “With this new model we wanted to exalt the contrast between the counters and the silver dial,” says Parmigiani Fleurier CEO Guido Terreni. “Taking out the orange indicators of the first edition helped us obtain a pure and long-lasting aesthetic.”

The Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Silver Black Following up on last year’s Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Blue, Parmigiani Fleurier adds the Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Silver Black. Like the new steel model, it is offered in two executions, mounted on either an integrated, ergonomically crafted bracelet or a textured black rubber strap. At 42 mm in diameter, its 18k rose gold case boasts a meticulous array of polished and brushed finishing and its fluted bezel frames the striking, highcontrast dial. Inside the Tondagraph GT Rose Gold Silver Black, and visible through a sapphire caseback, is the in-house Caliber PF071, a COSC chronometer-certified movement based on Parmigiani’s ground-breaking and GPHG award-winning Caliber PF361 and storing a 65hour power reserve. Parmigiani Fleurier takes pardonable pride in the technical refinements that maximize this elite caliber’s efficiency, as well as its top-level haute horlogerie decorations. The integrated chronograph function uses a column wheel rather than a cam, for smoother operation, and a vertical clutch rather than a horizontal one, which increases accuracy by enabling the chronograph to start without an initial jolt. The movement incorporates a cross-bridge instead of a single attachment to better stabilize the balance, whose high frequency of 36,000 vph (5 Hz) means the stopwatch can measure intervals up to 1/10 second. Few modern chronograph calibers can boast this level of accuracy. While this version of the Tondagraph does not include annual calendar functionality, it features the big date as an additional integrated feature, rather than a modular addition, which makes for better technical reliability. Like all Parmigiani Fleurier movements, Caliber PF071 is enhanced with chamfering and polishing done by hand, sandblasted surfaces, a sunray pattern on the 22k gold oscillating weight, and beautifully hand-finished bridges. Every component is made within the walls of Parmigiani Fleurier’s watchmaking hub, making it a true manufacture caliber. The watch joins Parmigiani Fleurier’s regular collection and is not a limited edition. Both new Tondagraph GT editions speak to the growth of the sport-luxury series within the larger and inarguably elegant Parmigiani Fleurier universe of timepieces. Envisioned as a value proposition relative to the larger Parmigiani Fleurier collection, Tonda GT offers the brand’s impeccable mechanical watchmaking at a price point that attracts a new set of consumers. “The arrival of the Tonda GT has expanded our audience and rejuvenated the existing collection for more modern tastes,” Terreni states. “Its launch created momentum for the brand in a very difficult year and offers an opportunity for many new potential customers to enjoy Parmigiani Fleurier. Now the classical aesthetics of a silver-and-black dial, a monochromatic case in steel or in gold, and an integrated bracelet, bring a new level of freshness to the collection, and the subtle enhancements on these new models demonstrate how we can take their sophistication even higher.” ParmigianiAmericas.com

e live in dynamic times. The current cultural moment is teeming with change and opportunity. There is freedom, awareness, and space for an unprecedented variety of self-presentations. Sadly, when it comes to fashion, this freedom is too often wasted in the name of convenience. Look no further for evidence of this fact than the regrettable “airport chic” fad of pajama-like sweats in public. With expert direction, the gentle touch of Savile Row, the cosmopolitan silhouettes of the continent, and the urban, uptown elegance of the jet-set are all within reach of the discerning. These days there is no excuse for pairing khakis with an ill-fitting shirt for a business lunch or a night on the town. Menswear designer Daniel George has been dedicated to fashion for 25 years and has achieved a level of mastery in his field that mirrors his clients’ distinction in their own professional pursuits. He recognizes the opportunities afforded by today’s relaxed environment. After all, if we can wear whatever we want, why not strive to look our absolute best? Daniel’s vision assumes that investment in high-end, bespoke clothing is not just a matter of means and aspiration. The greatest challenge facing clothier and client alike is finding a garment that flatters the body and forefronts the personality. With impeccable taste and attention to detail, Daniel embraces this challenge, crafting custom pieces that express the essential character of the man. He knows the rules, and when he breaks them, he does so with tact and intent. Daniel George has dedicated his career to the belief that if the goal is looking great, there can be no substitute for the bespoke and exquisitely tailored.

As Daniel sees it, the hallmark of excellence is a combination of passion and talent, and he imbues everything he creates with panache. The successful know the value of their time. Ambition and determined focus are key in all endeavors. But even the most focused among us also recognizes the value of innovation: inventiveness springs from creativity, and creativity springs from an open mind.

From classic business suits crafted for the professional who demands the highest quality, to stand-out, one-of-a-kind designs guaranteed to draw compliments from friends, family, colleagues, and strangers alike, Daniel George prides himself on his range of styles and invests in each garment bearing his name with uncompromising quality in design and construction.

In keeping with this belief, the Daniel George experience is anything but stuffy. Daniel serves as an affable, amiable guide. His knowledge of, and reverence for, the history of men’s fashion, along with his fluency in its contemporary, cutting edge, are perfectly balanced by his off-beat sense of humor and wit.

DG offers a comprehensive range of items: suits and sport coats made with fabrics from such world-renowned mills as Scabal, Loro Piana, and Dormeuil; shirts in fine cotton and linen, with hundreds of options, and in styles ranging from formal to casual; ties, pocket squares, and other accessories, all sourced from the world’s finest purveyors; and leather shoes and boots, crafted by hand with a personal pattern of the client’s foot for ultimate comfort and fit.

Truly bespoke apparel is not simply a matter of exhaustive measurements, as crucial as those are. It also requires familiarity with the client. This personal approach is one of many things that set Daniel George apart. What we wear speaks to who we are and what we value, and Daniel is committed to discovering what his clients are passionate about, whether it is fine wine or scotch, international travel, art, architecture, or interior design. (In fact, one is likely to get sidetracked should Daniel’s passion for classic bespoke automobiles get mentioned.) Above all, he is interested in getting to know his clients’ tastes in order to build a sartorial relationship.

Whether you are looking for an individual statement piece or interested in an inclusive wardrobe package, with Daniel’s expert eye and delicate touch the style you achieve will have you cruising above the clouds. Experience the DG difference firsthand by booking an appointment on their website, danielgeorge. com, or calling 312-729-5202 to set up an initial consultation. Scheduling your appointment at least three weeks in advance is recommended.

From Luxury Mansions to Mega Yachts, Chad Carroll is Reeling in Record Deals and Living the Lifestyle He Sells


n any given day, you can find leading real estate broker Chad Carroll at his “second office” - a Sunseeker Manhattan 52, cruising through South Florida’s waterways. The founder of The Carroll Group at Compass has elevated the luxury home sales game by taking clients out on his yacht to see the latest multi-milliondollar waterfront listings and give them a taste of the Magic City. “I am selling more than just a home, I’m selling a lifestyle. I want my clients to experience what South Florida is all about,” said Carroll. “Boating is a big part of my life and when I purchased my first boat in 2015, I naturally transitioned to taking clients out for the day to show them our amazing waterfront listings. Seeing South Florida from the water gives you a different perspective of what it would be like to really live here.” This blend of work and play, combined with Carroll’s reputation for expert deal-making and a non-stop mentality, has set the top-ranked agent apart. With an impressive $500 Million in sales in 2021 alone, Carroll is breaking records and raising property values across the coast. His recent sale of a $29 Million Mediterranean mansion in the private gated community of Tahiti Beach shattered sales records for the area, and in Miami’s Bay Point neighborhood he achieved the highest price ever with the sale of a $17 Million modern new construction home – trophy properties sold within weeks.

South Florida is on fire, with a surge of highnet worth individuals from around the country moving their businesses and laying down roots here,” says Carroll. “This surge in relocation has been a long time coming. Tax benefits aside, there is no place better to live.” More than a decade into his career, Carroll says the velocity in which deals are going under contract is something he has never seen before - and has made navigating deals more complex. From Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale, Boca and Palm Beach, the increase in demand has created a shortage of inventory for luxury single family homes, and prices have skyrocketed.

“I have to work harder than ever before to match my clients with off-market deals and explore areas outside of where they initially thought they might purchase. We get calls every single day from buyers and agents asking for homes that aren’t listed yet. They come to us because my team is tapped into the market. If anyone is going to get you a deal, it’s us.” Once they find their ideal waterfront property, luxury buyers are looking to accessorize with toys catering to their new lifestyle. The wellconnected Carroll is leveraging his unrivaled experience, network and love for the water to broker mega yacht deals, including the recent sale of a $9 Million Riva Argo. “I’m a connector and I have a deep understanding of what luxury buyers are looking for,” says Carroll. “I thrive on helping my clients and friends find the homes, and now boats, of their dreams.”

avid Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. He took up photography at an early age and as a 20-year-old found himself working as a photographer for The London Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, David took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup and, as a result, was subsequently asked to cover the Olympics and numerous other sporting events. Many years later David established himself as a fine art photographer by documenting the natural world from new perspectives and the last nine years have been career defining. David’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is most distinctive and has earned him an ever growing following amongst art collectors. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America. He is now recognized as one of the best selling fine art photographers in the world and his limited edition works regularly sell at high prices at Sotheby’s and other auction houses. David’s position in the industry has been rewarded with a wide range of advisory and ambassadorial roles. He is an ambassador for WildArk and The Kevin Richardson Foundation. As the European ambassador for Nikon, he has recently been integral to the company’s most anticipated camera release of the last decade. In December 2017 he shot LVMH’s latest “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign with Cara Delevingne, which can be seen in airports around the world. In January 2019 David was appointed as a global ambassador for UBS. Most recently, in the spring of 2020, David was appointed a Global Ambassador for Best Buddies - one of America’s most established children’s charities.

In 2018 and 2019 David’s work raised over $4.5m for philanthropic and conservation organizations. At Art Miami in December 2019, David’s photograph “The Wolves of Wall Street” broke new records. One print, signed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, featuring the real Wolf of Wall Street - Jordan Belfort - sold for $200,000. The proceeds went to conservation NGOs supported by DiCaprio. The equipment that David takes with him on location will naturally vary according to the subject matter of the assignment and the lighting conditions/climate of the environment in which he is photographing. David favors two camera bodies above all else. When a subject is fast moving, he looks no further than the Nikon D5. The high frames per second and powerful motor drive make for a combination that can capture any moment and allows for pin sharp imagery. For everything else, David prefers the high resolution of the Nikon D850. David was asked by Nikon to spearhead the campaign that launched the new Camera in 2017. The D850’s supreme resolution allows David to blow his images up to the large trademark sizes for which he has become known. One of Davids technical tips is to “use a well-positioned remote-controlled camera to capture shots of dangerous wildlife. When conceptualizing animal shots, think laterally and strive for an image that sits outside normal boundaries. This may be to achieve perspective by capturing shots that look up at the animal from the ground, but often to get the animal at eye level and pin sharp. This can prove problematic when photographing dangerous animals but a solution is offered in the form of well-positioned remote controls”

n extraordinary way of life has been created at Palmetto Bluff, and the history behind it is a testament to how magnificent of a place it truly is. Located in Bluffton, South Carolina, Palmetto Bluff is 30 minutes from Savannah and Hilton Head Island - a place both convenient and a world away. The land originally belonged to Union Bag & Paper Company, who purchased the 20,000 acres in the 1930s for timber resources. They quickly realized the depth of the beauty in this place, and chose instead to use it as a retreat for clients. The Bluff spoke to them, as it has spoken to all who have called it home. In 2000 Palmetto Bluff was purchased by Crescent Communities, now known as Palmetto Bluff Company, and began the next phase of its life as a residential community and host to the Montage Palmetto Bluff resort. Respect for the land is the top priority for this resort. All of the structures within Montage Palmetto Bluff are built with oversight from the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, ensuring nature takes precedence to conserve the land and wildlife that exist. This care for the surroundings extends to the care they take with guests and members within the community. They strive to care for everything and everyone in the most exceptional way. Each day

they work to provide exceptional hospitality to their guests and explore ways to improve their guests’ and members’ experiences. It’s a rare opportunity to have such deep connections with the land and people around you. Today Montage Palmetto Bluff welcomes guests to the expansive nature preserve and community with experiences indigenous to the South Carolina coast. Guests carry on the traditions of the sporting life in the Lowcountry, enjoying both active and relaxing pursuits amid the 32-mile waterfront setting. Montage Palmetto Bluff is a true multigenerational escape, creating moments of connection and escape for those of all ages. From the soulful Spa Montage, to tennis, croquet and lawn sports, Jack Nicklaus Signature golf, the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club, fishing or getting out on the water, there’s a wealth of ventures. The team puts much thought into that connection when developing their activities and programs. It creates a very personal experience, with every guests’ perspective in mind. In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, this mantra has come front and center- that Montage Palmetto Bluff isn’t just a spot for a vacation, it’s a life-changing experience for people where memories are created and held onto for a lifetime.

Take golf, for example. The sport has seen a renewed interest in the past year, driven in part by a desire to return to nature and a desire for the simple pleasures of sport. A desire that also inspired the design of the course at Montage Palmetto Bluff. The sensational May River Golf Course, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course has a special place in the story of Palmetto Bluff they had a vision for a golf course that amplified the natural beauty of the property, not overwhelmed it. The course was designed with the land, complementing the natural landscape and planned to route around all significant trees. Even further in the quest to enhance the surrounding nature, the life cycle of insects of the course was studied in order to use minimal amounts of pesticides. The grass used on the course, paspalum, is heat, drought and salt water tolerant to meet the natural environment found on the banks of the May River. The course is also an Audubon Certified Golf Course, and the abundant wildlife population doesn’t leave you wondering why. The golf course maintenance team adds more bluebird houses to the course each year attracting just one of the many species that call it home.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the eight dining options on property. Each eatery honors the Lowcountry’s rich and unique culinary history by using the freshest ingredients harvested from the surrounding waters, woods and local farms for a oneof-a-kind epicurean experience. From casual to fine dining, quick bites to elegant meals, these opportunities to gather together are yet another part of the genuinely crafted connections at Montage Palmetto Bluff. And at the end of the day, when laying your head to rest, the accommodations speak to varying needs for togetherness: couples and small parties can choose between the Inn rooms, guest houses or cottages. For families, an array of suite options or the luxuriously appointed village homes with two to four bedrooms, chef’s kitchens, dining rooms and outdoor entertaining spaces create the ideal space. With so much to explore, rooms can simply be a place to dream of the day’s next adventures. When people are looking for a vacation, the biggest thing they look for is a connection. And that is what Montage Palmetto Bluff provides. Authenticity is the embodiment of all Montage properties, and we can say with confidence that Montage Palmetto Bluff is the most authentic lowcountry experience you can find. 843-706-6500 MontagePalmettoBluff.com

elcome to the new Necker Island: Sir Richard Branson’s home and private hideaway in the unspoiled British Virgin Islands. Synonymous of ultimate luxury, the secluded island offers a backdrop to indulge in an unmatched beachside getaway with a spotlight on sustainability. Reopening its doors after over a two-year recovery from the devastating impact of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Necker Island is back and better than ever before, with a featured focus on sustainability. Providing guests with unmatched luxury guest rooms, exquisite views, and ultimate exclusivity, the new Necker Island is back to the top of travel enthusiasts’ destination bucket lists. Guests are able to revel in a brand-new Necker experience which includes a new Great House and Bali Lo Complex. The Great House was restored with two new rooms, totaling to 11 guest rooms. Each of the spacious rooms in the Great House are equipped with a balcony that promotes the alluring panoramic views of the Caribbean, a king-sized bed, and ensuite bathrooms. The accommodations in the Great House are made family friendly with a bunk room, which sleeps up to six children. The Bali Lo Complex is a two-tiered Balinese house with a lounge on the ground floor and the bedroom is above it on the first floor. This complex along with the neighboring Bali Buah and the Bali Kukila were all built in authentic Balinese style and suited for accommodating a couple. There’s also the standalone Leha Lo, a short walk down from the Great House and nestled high above the rocks providing panoramic 180-degree sea views.

The Great House

Simply being sequestered in their room savoring the impeccable views may be delightful enough for some guests. However, Necker Island offers much more than its pleasant placement in the Caribbean waters. The activities provided on this resort are endless allowing for an adventure filled experience. Pursuits vary from sailing, scuba diving, yoga, tennis, spa treatments, and more. For more adventurous travelers, off-site excursions can be arranged for a full or half day expedition. Necker Island is more than just a luxurious vacation destination with stunning scenery and countless activities. Following its reopening, the island has a renewed commitment to sustainability. Its adoption of 1,232 solar panels and three wind

turbines allows for the island to run on 90% renewable energy every day. In line with Sir Richard Branson’s philanthropic efforts across the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio, Necker Island is a member of the Pack for a Purpose initiative that encourages visitors to save a little space in their luggage to bring supplies for local schools or medical clinics in need. Necker Island’s support has aided the exponential growth of area schools allowing for more space and resources for students. Necker is typically reserved for buyout-only visits, however, there are certain weeks of the year where the island opens up for “Celebration Weeks” where guests can book a 7-night stay in an individual room.

While Necker Island has long been the crown jewel of the British Virgin Islands, soon comes the much-anticipated unveiling of a new island – Moskito Island. Situated on a 125acre private island just two miles from sister island Necker, Moskito will go far beyond conventional villa rental and will provide guests with upscale luxury private estates on a beautiful privately owned Caribbean island. The island will be complete with 10 individual luxury estates. Newly available for rent is the 11-bedroom Branson Estate, which exemplifies the pillar of excellence – and new estates will become available for rent this year, all individually designed and exceptionally different. Accompanying the estates is a communal recreational area for guests to take advantage of the many activities based around the Beach House, infinity pool and bar, tennis pavilion, dining pavilions and watersports center. Over on the opposite side of the island from the Branson Estate lies Manchioneel Beach, where guests can enjoy incredible waters paired with lounge-style cabanas and a private dining area. The British Virgin Islands have maintained record low cases of COVID-19 due to strict safety precautions implemented by the BVI government. The staff at the two properties have received new COVID-19 training, are closely in-tune with government guidelines and ensuring that they are continuously one step ahead to keep the safety of their guests and staff a priority.

lia Beach Club is the first venue of the joint partnership from nightlife leaders and managing partners Mio Danilovic, Jason “JRoc” Craig and Michael Fuller, and JC Hospitality at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Curated by the partners and designed by Francois Frossard, it exudes inspiration from Mykonos, Greece through its ambiance, furnishings and aesthetic. Frossard, who also designed the notable Joia Beach Club in Miami, brought the partners’ visions to life through the venue’s details, color palette, and decor. With a musical focus on all genres of house music, a relaxed yet energetic dance vibe inspired by international beach destinations will create a rhythmic, transformational experience for guests, different from any other Vegas pool and nightlife offering. In conjunction with the continued unveiling of Richard Branson’s Virgin Hotels, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Curio Collection by Hilton and JC Hospitality, owners of the resort, are pleased to announce the partnership with nightlife leaders Mio Danilovic, Jason “JROC” Craig and Michael Fuller to run Élia Beach Club - a beach club unlike any seen before in Las Vegas. Vegas eagerly awaits the unveiling of this magical, ethereal new hospitality destination. Curated by the partners and designed by the discerning eye of Francois Frossard, Élia Beach Club takes its inspiration from Mykonos, Greece, remaining instep with its namesake, Elia, Mykonos’ largest beach. Known for its clear, blue surf and scenic sandy landscape, Élia Beach Club will emanate those sensations through its ambiance.

Frossard, who also designed the notable Joia Beach, as well as some of the most widely lauded institutions to have graced Miami, brought the partners’ visions to life through handselected decor detail and a customized design aesthetic. “I am so honored and excited to have partnered with Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. My partners and I are looking forward to building Élia Beach Club into one of the best beach club venues, not only in Las Vegas, but in the United States. We aim to deliver a top-tier atmosphere, first-class service and an unbelievable experience, remaining true to everything that the Virgin Hotels brand stands for,” said Mio Danilovic, Creator/Managing Partner, Élia Beach Club. The Mykonos-inspired decor and ambiance will not only impress guests but transport them to an international paradise. With travelers continuously journeying to Tulum (Mexico) and Miami (Florida) since the onset of the pandemic, and on the heels of the widespread popularity of tourism to Mykonos over the last five years, it was evident the decor and musical programming of these global destinations is what party goers want to hear, see and experience. With this in mind, the team set out to create the ultimate getaway destination, paired with the internationally coveted brand of Virgin Hotels as its Las Vegas backdrop and so Élia Beach Club was born. With a musical focus on all genres of house music, a relaxed yet energetic dance vibe inspired by international beach destinations will create a rhythmic, transformational experience for guests, different from any other Vegas pool and nightlife offering.

“Élia Beach Club will serve as the ultimate haven for guests as Vegas’ premiere beach club and will offer an unparalleled experience unlike anything else in the Las Vegas resort corridor,” said Richard “Boz” Bosworth, President & CEO of JC Hospitality and owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. “As part of the integrated resort model, the outdoor pool experience was one of our top priorities. We are thrilled with this partnership and anxious to introduce the venue to our guests. The desert oasis incorporates an internationally inspired ambiance sure to impress hotel guests, performers and locals alike.” From the wood framed and draped fabric cabana design, to the jute woven poufs, and stonework accents, the global design influences differentiate Élia Beach Club from the typical pool atmospheres, offering a photographic backdrop at every turn. “I am really excited for this project for a variety of reasons. Through my travels abroad to places like Mykonos, Bali, Brazil and Tulum, among others, I have enjoyed the simplicity of what these cultures, daylife and nightlife entities have created through their design and architecture, as well as the music and overall vibe of the spaces. At Élia Beach Club we are trying to create an energy, an energy that not only lives uniquely in the space musically, but also in the way the venue feels. An energy and vibe in a different lane then your typical Vegas pool experience,” said Jason “JRoc” Craig, Managing Partner, Élia Beach Club. “While a large percentage of the market is splintered right now, musically and psychologically they are looking for a mature cultured experience. It is evident the experience of Covid-19 and quarantine has changed people - - their priorities, interests and social interactions - and we need to do things a little differently to reflect that. With a focus on tourists, hotel guests and locals, we aspire to be the friendliest venue in Las Vegas for a truly carefree, enjoyable guest experience.” - Michael Fuller, Managing Partner, Élia Beach Club. The musical style of DJs and notable guest performers will incorporate tropical house, world house and deep house, with a mindset of escape, dancing and just good vibes filling the atmosphere of the venue. The beautifully designed stage complete with a straw thatched roof creates a desirable and attractive focal point to the venue that will not only lure in guests and performers but will create a cohesive desire to be a part of the experience it exudes. Overlooking the Mediterranean-colored pool, the music will infiltrate the venue elevating the experience to another level, literally. The floorplan allows for all cabana guests to feel integrated into the vibe of the performance, as well as patrons that choose to stay at pool level. Every guest, whether pool level or at a VIP cabana, will be offered an immersive, accessible and welcoming experience. The entire venue will evoke an exclusive feel. Health and wellness elements will also be incorporated into both the menu and the programming, with cabanas converted for massage and wellness services. The world continues to raise its level of focus on consciousness, environmentalism and overall selfcare, fitness and wellness practices, so the founders are committed to bringing elements reflective of this criteria into the venue. Examples of this include large-scale morning yoga, meditation popups, red light therapy, and organic based cocktail creations.

ter 10 years as arguably Miami’s most scene-y celeb hotspot and Art Basel social center, W South Beach reopened after a $30 million renovation. Designed by Urban Robot Associates, the renovation embodies the culture and sophistication of the ever evolving Miami without abandoning its signature edge factor. Known for having the largest guest rooms on South Beach, each with an ocean view, the 357 guest rooms, suites and triplex bungalows were transformed into urban beach retreats, trading dark tones and shiny finishes for natural light, warm oak and a serene vibe. A new spa brand, Away Spa was brought in with a focus on detoxifying and nourishing the mind and body, with nourishing experiences incorporated into every aspect of the spa. Along with the renovation, W South Beach debuted a refreshed art collection, valued at $100 million with a focus on the iconic duo Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. There are 21 original Warhol’s in the collection curated by part-owner Aby Rosen from his personal collection. “

The hotel  had  a  cosmopolitan  aesthetic  incorporating  darker  tones  which  worked  well  when  it  was introduced. However,  throughout  the  years,  Miami  Beach  has  changed  a  lot.  The new design is  an expression of where Miami is headed, enriched with refined art and culture,” said Justine Velez, Partner at Urban Robot. “We preserved some of the original vibe and edge while introducing a beautiful fresh blend of  natural  light,  warm  wood  tones  and  various  shades  of  colors  from  the  sea  to  the400  spacious  guest suites, triplex bungalows and spa,” she added.  The reimagined suites were designed as a retreat,  enhancing each South Beach moment from sunrise to sundown,  all  while  overlooking  the  endless  Atlantic  Ocean  views. The design  process unpacked the residential dreams by marrying beach house-style millwork, natural oaks, airy and plush neutral textures and beige color palette with accents of soft coral and sand shade steals; while the new room flow created an idyllic transitional oasis where guests go from a sleep haven to a contemporary living room set for entertaining. Room features include circadian lighting with three preset mood modes(Bright/Entertain/Relax), transient 24hour music  playlists,sand  gradient  blackout sandan under bed light belt to create a floating effect.  Seaside-inspired art photography adorns the wooden paneled walls by French Photographer Jean-Phillipe Piterand a collection of artists from FarmBoy Fine Arts;while local Miami Artist Juan Manuel Rozas hand painted art on powder roomwalls.The suite redesign also includes a new room category: The Queen Studio and Fantastic suites, featuring two oversized plush beds.

ppease your creative senses with a visit to The Betsy South Beach situated in the epicenter of the Miami Art Deco District, Ocean Drive. The predominant architectural style of the 1920s and 1930s on Ocean Drive emits a quaint beauty throughout its 900 historically preserved buildings. And today, The Betsy is part of the historic neighborhood that bridges the gap between old-and-new Miami, making it an architectural masterpiece. The Betsy Hotel South Beach is nothing short of historic as it remains the only surviving example of Florida-Georgian architecture on Ocean Drive. This globally recognized property is a family-owned establishment where attention to detail, exceptional food, and appreciation for the arts prevail. Jonathan Plutzik together with his wife Lesley Goldwasser-Plutzik own The Betsy and keep cultural and community programming at its core. Jonathan Plutzik’s Father, Hyam Plutzik who was a three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist in poetry, continues to inspire the ownership family’s love of literature and commitment to artistic programming which includes the Writer’s Room. The Betsy’s family ties doesn’t end with the duo at the helm. Their son Zachary Plutzik serves as the Managing Director and focuses on the property’s digital presence, revenue management, and overall Betsy brand. Over the years, the property has welcomed creatives of all kinds, having hosted over 1,000+ writers in the Writer’s Room at The Betsy. Paying homage to the many writing rooms that existed in the pre-war hotels, the Writer’s Room consists of a working studio space where visiting artists can create, develop their craft and share their work within community programming. In more support of the arts, The Betsy offers residency opportunities for professional artists in all disciplines. Residencies can last up to a week and are free of charge. However, residents must contribute a written piece to the property’s blog, participate in a community event to introduce and discuss their work, and donate a recent publication (if available) to one of The Betsy’s libraries in exchange for their stay. Residencies are only granted through an application process.

She is not only the owner, Lesley Goldwasser-Plutzik she also serves as the art and music curator. When she’s not busy being a finance powerhouse in New York, Lesley is curating the property’s nine rotating galleries throughout the lobby and handpicking the fan-favorite Betsy playlists. Through her work, Lesley elevates the visitor’s experience with captivating and inspirational art while also elevating artists’ work and amplifying its reach. Some of The Betsy’s exhibits have found their way to museums’ permanent collections and in solo shows at some of the most respected art institutions in the world, which speaks to the caliber of what is on display. As an avid champion of arts and diversity, The Betsy celebrates the work by and for diverse communities. The property’s Muhammed Ali exhibit, that encompasses an exclusive collection of photos of Ali when he was in Miami in 1964, and the Michael Halsband exhibit, which features the iconic portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol, are only two examples of the diverse art the property features.

While the artwork certainly takes center stage, it’s not the only artistic flare in the building – The Betsy also excels at the art of fine dining. Offering an ample selection when it comes to dining and relieving your cravings – from alfresco options to an incredible indoor ambience. At the signature LT Steak & Seafood guests will encounter a casually elegant dining experience with flavors and techniques from France, Asia, and Latin America using locally sourced ingredients. For those looking for a more relaxed, spontaneous outing, The Alley and La Ventanita are within reach. The Alley is a modern trattoria serving artisanal pizza, handmade pasta, charcuterie, salads, beer, wine, and Italian-inspired cocktails. While over at La Ventanita, a takeout window sitting underneath the beloved poetry rail, offers on-the-go options, including pizza and gelato to enjoy as you make your way to the beach or explore the Art Deco District. Named one of the top boutique hotels in America, The Betsy encompasses simplistic beauty through its elegant design and timeless decor. The 130 rooms spread across two four-story buildings have a contemporary style and accents of Art Deco touches. In 2017, the property expanded to takeover the former Carlton Hotel, a historic transformation on Ocean Drive. The property provides a variety of accommodations that best suit their guests including tranquil rooms, spacious suites, and a glamourous skyline penthouse paired with 1,000-foot wrap-around terrace. An oasis anchoring the quiet end of iconic Ocean Drive, The Betsy is perfectly positioned on one of the most glorious tropical beaches in the world — and has one of the most exciting neighborhoods in America as its backyard. With the lobby being a primary hotspot due to its enlivened art gallery and live jazz seven nights a week, guests who choose to vacation with The Betsy opt in to serene yet lively vibes while conveniently placed at the core of South Beach’s famous Ocean Drive.

arstool Sports was started by Dave Portnoy in 2003 as a print publication distributed in the Boston metropolitan area and offered gambling advertisements and fantasy sports projections. Barstool later expanded to encompass other topics. Barstool launched on the internet in 2007 and in 2016, Sam “Riggs” Bozoian became a staple. Prior to joining Barstool, Riggs was a blogger, writing thousands of articles on his own, over the course of several years. Riggs attempted to gain the attention of Mr. Portnoy and eventually got the reply he’d been waiting for. Dave gave Riggs a trial run to blog on the Barstool website, several weeks later, this became his full-time job. Riggs had a desire to write about golf, citing his

love of the game. Portnoy was straight forward, saying, “if it was good, then Barstool would publish it.” In February of 2017 “Fore Play”, the podcast was launched, changing the game for Barstool moving forward. The success of “Fore Play” is impossible to ignore. If you pay attention to golf at all, you’ve likely listened to or heard of the podcast. “We’re always evolving. Trying to grow and expand while being everywhere that we can be. We’re obsessed with golf and we know millions of others are too,” Riggs said while discussing the future of the podcast. He outlined his plan; adapting to new social platforms popping up, creating new video content and new live events, and creating more products will play a crucial role in the growth and expansion of the hit podcast.

New live events have definitely helped grow the golf side of Barstool. Riggs and the crew developed the “Barstool Classic”, a golf event spanning the entire country with several stops in major cities and featuring some of the nicest courses in the country. I asked Riggs about the Barstool Classic and how it’s evolved since it was introduced just a couple of years ago, “Well in 2019 we did 8 qualifiers, in 2020 we did 16, and this year we’re doing 26. So, I’d say it continues to get bigger and better. Our first year was a 1-day championship at Liberty National; this year will be a 4-day championship at Pinehurst, the U.S. Open’s first and only anchor site.” This is wildly impressive growth over three years. I myself have experienced how popular this event is after trying to sign up for the St. Louis event back in 2020, where I was unable to attend because it sold out within minutes. Riggs also mentioned that while he does want the event to continue its growth, he’s committed to making sure it’s done right. What makes these events so special are the intimate experiences with the fans and the fact that they are competitive golf tournaments. Riggs wants neither to be lost in the growth. With the continued growth of golf within Barstool Sports, Riggs mentioned he believes golf products will play a role moving forward. Some notable partnerships Riggs and the team have created are with Taylormade and Peter Millar. Two goliaths in the golf industry. Speaking on how the Taylormade partnership came to be, Riggs said, “Our greatest asset is that we’re not good at golf, because an overwhelming majority of people who play golf are not good at golf. That relatability makes a partnership like this very valuable and real. Who in the world hasn’t wished they could outfit their entire bag with

fresh Taylormades?” So that covers the equipment side, but what about the apparel? Riggs said it was a “no brainer” to go with Peter Millar. He has been wearing their merchandise for years. Looking good and feeling comfortable on the course are just as important to most golfers as any other aspect of the game. That’s where Barstool saw the real value in partnering with such an elite brand. Riggs has a strong passion for golf. He shared a story with me, one that he also shared with the world through an Instagram post, but hearing it firsthand, hit me a different way. Riggs posted an emotional video about leaving Pinehurst. I asked him why leaving Pinehurst made him so emotional. “I met Tom Pashley, president of Pinehurst, on a buddies trip run by Matt Ginella in 2019. We hit it off and he insisted the Fore Play crew get to Pinehurst to experience it for ourselves. We went a few months later and loved it. About 4 months after that, the pandemic hit and the world started to shut down. I knew I didn’t want to be stuck in my tiny Manhattan apartment, so I reached out to Pash and he told me to come on down. I booked about a $60 one-way flight for the next day, and it wasn’t until 99 days later I slept somewhere other than Pinehurst.” Hearing stories like that are rare. Having an experience like that is unforgettable. This ties in to why the game of golf has grown exponentially over the last few years. There are several factors that could claim they are the cause for the growth in golf. Tiger’s return, the Covid-19 pandemic, and maybe people starting to appreciate the game more. But there’s a strong possibility that Sam “Riggs” Bozoian, and his “Fore Play” podcast crew have also made an impact; growing this beautiful game we love. This has been accomplished through humor, experiences, and just showing the world that golf can be for anyone.

elebrating “life as it should be” during a trip to Mexico in 2018, Nick Jonas and John Varvatos were inspired to embark on a new adventure and launch their own tequila brand. But like all good stories, there was much more to it, and most importantly, it started with a true friendship. “John and I first met at a dinner party in New York about 6 years ago and really hit it off. We talked about life, creativity, and found out we had a lot in common and that we both really love tequila,” says Jonas. “We first started with a fashion collaboration, then did a fragrance together, and eventually we had this vision to bring Villa One to life.” “We ended up taking a trip to Mexico in 2018 with some family and friends and it was there we decided to pursue this new adventure,” adds Varvatos. “The spirit of the property we were staying at, celebrating life, and the feeling of enjoyment of spending time with family and friends really inspired us, and that is where the ‘Life as It Should Be’ slogan came from.” The idea quickly turned into a tangible venture with a name on that trip: Villa One. With an approach focused on authenticity, craftmanship, and rooted in passion, Jonas and Varvatos shared a vision of creating an ultra-premium tequila that was best in class but still accessible in price. To ensure Villa One was crafted to the highest quality, utilizing traditional methods and was distributed and marketed effectively within the ever-evolving spirits landscape, Jonas and Varvatos partnered with Stoli Group and its Fabrica de Tequilas Finos distillery, which sits at the foot of Tequila Hill in Jalisco, Mexico. Production was led by Master Distiller, Arturo Fuentes, “The Godfather of Tequila,” who has more than three decades of distilling experience.

“We really leaned on Arturo and learned so much in the process,” shares Varvatos. “We worked side by side with him and went through many, many rounds of the taste test, about an 18-month process, to get us in a great place and we are very happy with the result.” Villa One is made with artesian well water and only the finest, sustainably sourced, 100% blue weber agave, matured 5-7 years and sourced from both the Highland and Lowland regions. “I think the cool part about Villa One is that we are one of only a handful of tequilas that uses agave from both the lowlands and the highlands, which gives it a really unique flavor profile,” says Jonas. “It combines some of those earthier notes with some of the sweeter notes from the highlands and it really just sets us apart.” The tequila is offered in three expressions, Silver, Reposado, and Añejo, and the bottle itself was designed by Varvatos and Jonas and features fine jewelry-inspired metalwork around the neck that represents the signature style of the John Varvatos brand. “The future looks very bright. We’re so excited about the early fan base we have cultivated just having launched about a year and a half ago,” says Jonas. Varvatos concludes, “The people who have tried it really love it and we’re so excited to continue to grow that and see more and more people make Villa One their top choice.”
