WELCOME

I Dear Readers,

n Hamburg, my hometown, I live in close proximity to the Elbe River. The river bank is the perfect place for a leisurely stroll that allows you to collect your thoughts and develop new ideas while gazing across the water. So I can understand quite well why all around the world, waterfront living has become one of the most exclusive and sought-after real estate options – and nowhere else are you closer to water than on a yacht. I am fascinated by the ever-growing trend towards these “floating homes.” They allow you to dis-

cover new and exciting destinations every day within the privacy and luxurious surroundings of your own home. Moorings in prestigious marinas can command prices per square meter comparable to those of real estate in desirable locations. Factors such as a particularly exclusive location and well-developed infrastructure also determine price levels. This year Marbella’s Puerto Banús marina tops the ranking of Europe’s most expensive moorings compiled by Engel & Völkers. The marina charges berthing rates of around € 4,200 a day during peak season. To my mind, a visit to the French Riviera is an essential part of the yachting season. Cannes, Saint-Tropez and many other coastal resorts allow you to enjoy French savoir-vivre, while the regions further inland delight with picturesque landscapes. To me, the scent of the countless fields of lavender is inextricably linked to the Côte d’Azur. At roughly € 2,200 and € 2,000 a day respectively, the Saint-Tropez Cruise Port and the Marina Port Vauban in Antibes are among the priciest marinas in the Mediterranean. The connection between the world of yachting and the real estate industry is more noticeable today than ever. Nowadays, numerous well-known architects and interior designers are dedicated to designing and fitting out yachts. They provide them with custom-made interiors and living areas that can compete with any lavish onshore property. Those who prefer their home on terra firma will find a selection of the most stunning real estate from around the world in this edition of GG.

WELCOME

Je ne sais quoi … … is one of those wonderful French sentences that expresses the fascination with what we simply cannot put into words. In this issue we are focusing on inspiring personalities whose work brings out nothing but that special feeling. They run companies and create things that enrich our lives with excellence and finesse. Like David Holder, who took over the then one and only Ladurée café in Paris when he was just 25 years young, to eventually expand globally and transform the delicate and delicious Ladurée macaron into a coveted and often copied lifestyle product. Meghan Markle recently celebrated her baby shower in one of the pastel-colored Ladurée cafés in New York City. Jacques Garcia, the famous interior designer (think Hôtel Costes) who resides in a magnificent chateau in Normandy, also created the interior of Holder’s first Ladurée salon on the Champs-Élysées. The extraordinary light on the Mediterranean coast near Saint-Paul-de-Vence inspired Picasso, Matisse and even Giacometti. Today, the Fondation Maeght and the hotel and restaurant La Colombe d’Or draw art aficionados from all over the world to the French Riviera. Not far away in Aix en Provence, Shirin von Wulffen and Frédéric Fekkai relax and work at their bastide, their refuge and lovely vacation home and lately also the inspiration for a new business venture.

y wife is a fairly well known  res­taurant critic. She has opinions on things I didn’t even know you could have opinions on. She knows exactly if she fancies Ibérico pork cheek with two kinds of parsley or whether she would prefer the terrine with mistletoe and jellied shiso consommé. The chartreuse of quail breast and goose liver served with an apple and gewürztraminer jelly also sounds good, but she would first have to know who was manning the finishing table, in other words the person responsible for deciding whether a particular dish is up to the high standards of the kitchen. It goes without saying that she would know the name of the chef and where he had previously worked. Let me be brutally honest: a wife like this can be a problem. Ignorance has never stopped me from having an opinion – and writing about it too. I wouldn’t have become a journalist otherwise. The problem is that I secretly live in terror that my proud defense of a slightly charred Neapolitan pizza as the pinnacle of culinary achievement could, in fact, be based on what my wife bluntly calls my “benightedness.” I could sense that my jokes about overly fussy French cooking merely showed that I lacked the necessary insight. And I dimly remembered reading a sentence somewhere: “If you really know France you may smile at the description ‘grande nation’, but never, ever at the term ‘grande cuisine.’”

like a lot of money soon slipped into proportion when I chatted to the waiter last year at the festival. I had drunk two flutes of a delicious Champagne, whose name I had no intention of remembering, and I asked the question that probably only an idiot of my caliber even thinks about asking: The “how-much” question. I cleared my throat, leaned forward to the waiter who was in the processes of taking away my glass and muttered: “Excuse me, but, um, how much did that cost?” The man considered briefly, as if he was deliberating whether to answer at all. Then he replied: “I would say around 100 Swiss francs. Wholesale. Provided you can even get it.” ou may have realized by now  that I am no gourmet, which is why the name of the man who was cooking that evening meant nothing to me: Heinz Beck. It’s a bit like writing about soccer and not knowing who Lothar Matthäus is. Beck is executive chef at the only three-star restaurant in Rome, La Pergola. He also manages several other restaurants, including in Dubai, in London and elsewhere around the world. Beck, with whom I ended up getting wasted at the hotel bar, greatly impressed me. I suddenly understood why gourmets make such a song and dance about food. I have forgotten what the name of the course was, but as long as I live I will never forget the tortellini Beck served. The plate was a work of art, a landscape; very pretty, I thought, but essentially it’s just a plate of tortellini. Your basic pasta. I lived in Italy for a while and thought I knew what pasta should taste like. Reader: never in my life have I eaten such sublime tortellini. Silky soft with a perfect, thin layer of pasta enveloping an astonishingly good duck filling. At this point, my wife o I was delighted when would launch into an explosion of well-chosen adjectives.

PLAYGROUND INTERVIEW

Rising Stars Gone are the days when Paris fashion houses would entrust a creative reboot only to established names. Dutch designers Rushemy Botter, 32, and Lisi Herrebrugh, 28, are the ultimate young Parisian power couple. They are chief designers at Nina Ricci and at their own menswear label: Botter. Ms. Herrebrugh, Mr. Botter, only last year you were both still unknown, albeit graduate, fashion designers. Then you entered the finals for the LVMH Prize and won at the Hyères Fashion Festival. What

So much that we have trouble believing it ourselves. Only four months after all of these things, we started as creative directors at Nina Ricci, moved from Antwerp to Paris and took along our creation, Botter. We will be presenting our second collection for Nina Ricci at Fashion Week in September, and in January 2020, we will have our debut at Fashion Week Men’s with our first official Botter show. has happened since then?

Viktor & Rolf won in Hyères in 1993, Anthony Vaccarello, now chief designer at Yves Saint Lauren, in 2006. But nobody’s career has been as meteoric as yours. How do you explain this? We really can’t (both laugh). RB: Lisi graduated only three years ago, I myself graduated just one and a half years back. There are so many talented designers who end up going from one internship to another. We were just very lucky. How does your men’s fashion, which takes a critical look at societal issues, fit together with the feminine, romantic style of Nina Ricci?

We look at fashion as a chronicle of our times. And we both have Caribbean backgrounds – Curaçao and the Dominican Republic – where the problems are very apparent. The same is true for Paris. It’s a magnificent city, but there are many homeless people. All this influences our work. And how much of Botter is part of Nina Ricci? For Nina Ricci we adopted a slightly different approach, shutting ourselves away in the company archives in order to get an understanding of the brand. We did this to find the things we want to develop further, and to stay true to the aspirations of the fashion house, and our own. It’s a process of careful filtering. With Botter, we can be much more daring. Striking a fine balance is extremely exciting to us. Eagle-eyed observers will notice that small elements have found their way from Botter into the Nina Ricci collections. ter label?

sense. How did the decision to work as a team come about? LH: It happened organically after we moved

in together. Rushemy has a more atmospheric approach to fashion. He loves storytelling, colors and being playful with details. I’m more interested in the technical aspects like cuts, volumes and materials. At first we just helped each other out, but then we discovered that we work better together.

We were wondering the same thing in the beginning. But the idea of bringing together things that are not obviously connected appealed to us immediately. That’s also how we see our own approach to fashion design. And we reckoned that if Nina Ricci called us, of all people, they were open to trying something new.

David Holder spent two years refurbishing his largest Ladurée café – a 7,000-square-meter salon on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

t’s nine in the morning on the Champs-Élysées  in the biggest Ladurée café in Par-

is. People are already coming and going in the elegant, two-story salon. Not only tourists are enjoying breakfast at tables covered with white tablecloths. Meeting up at Ladurée is something real Parisians enjoy just as much. Downstairs in the pastry shop, several Ladurée waiters are sorting the freshly delivered macarons and putting the delicious looking tartlets on display. The air is filled with the delightful smell of powdered sugar, ground almonds and crispy croissants. “Bonjour!,” says David Holder, the man who is responsible for all this deliciousness. His look is more rock star than businessman: with his hair reaching to his shoulders and a big smile, he reaches out one hand with big silver rings gleaming on his fingers. Ladurée President and “Dream Leader” it says in gold letters on his business card. “This place has a lot of emotional meaning for me,” the Frenchman tells me and leads me through the spacious rooms of the very first café he created and that once served as offices for Japan Airlines. “When I saw this space all those years ago, I got goose bumps. I knew right away that this was the place from which I would be able to make my dream come true.” The dawn of a sweet revolution that started nearly 25 years ago… Monsieur Holder – Ladurée macarons have conquered the world as a result of your passion. You were only 25 when you purchased the traditional Ladurée café. Founded in 1862, it was the only one at the time and situated on the Rue Royale in Paris. Today, your delicate almond pastries come in all colors of the rainbow and are available in 80 Ladurée boutiques in 30 countries. You employ 1,400 staff and personally visit three cities a week to further the international expansion of your company. What’s the source of your seemingly unbri-

dled passion and boundless energy?  I think I inherited my passion from my father’s side of the family. Susanne, my grandmother, was a legendary personality in our first bakery, the only one in Lille back then. No one was a better sales person than she, and nobody could make our customers happier. My grandmother loved her work – you could feel it. My father had a deep-seated passion, too. I think we’re just a very creative family, always full of ideas. You grew up in Lille, a small city in northern France. What was your childhood like?  It

was very simple. We only had one bakery and lived a modest but happy life. My father was the baker and my mother helped him in the bakery. In the ’70s, my father starting expanding and opened PAUL bakeries throughout France. I remember my childhood as being very happy, and even though both of my parents worked, they still always had time for my sister, my brother and me. Shortly before he turned 50, your father took you aside and urged you to learn the baker’s trade. What was your response? That was

the beginning of my career. I was 20 years old and had just finished my degree in finance and global management in Paris. When my father approached me, I had actually been planning to do a master’s degree in the U.S. My father was 49, his own father had died suddenly at 51 after a similarly tough life as a baker, and so he was worried that he might die young as well. He said: Please spend two years with me so I can teach you everything you need to know about the trade. I didn’t hesitate for long because I felt what a gift it was to be able to learn from my father. And it was important to him because he was only 17 when he lost his father and had to learn the trade himself. He wanted to spare me this experience. What was your dream back then, what did you want to do with your life?  I had

known from the age of 14 that I wanted to be a

­ aker. Watching my father, and before him my grandmother, take the b family business forward, was inspirational. I also knew that it would one day be my task to expand worldwide. My grandmother worked in our only shop in Lille, my father opened 50 to 70 bakeries throughout France and I quite naturally assumed that my generation would be the one to go international. Can you describe your first steps?  The first thing we did when I joined the business was to close half of our bakeries because we were operating under different logos and different management. In 1993 we did a relaunch with the new design concept – the black facade – that all bakery-cafés share. That was the rebirth of the PAUL brand. Let’s return to when you were 20 and decided to become a baker in accordance with your father’s wishes. What do you remember from those days?  That was the hardest time of my life. I wasn’t used to physical work for 17 hours at a stretch. In the first few weeks I lost seven kilos! My shift started at 11 pm with the preparation of the bread dough, the fermentation and division into loaves. All of that took seven hours, and we hadn’t even started baking yet. As soon as the bread was done, I started on the pastries that we baked all day long in order to have enough to sell during opening hours and also to deliver to restaurants and hotels. When you’re finished baking, you have to clean up and everything has to be clinically clean. I didn’t sleep for more than three or four hours a night, grabbed dinner whenever I could and only rarely had time to meet friends for a drink. After you had finished your training, your father did something unexpected. Instead of handing the family business over to you, he held on to it himself. How did you react?  Impatiently! I

didn’t understand it right away, but I soon came to realize that my father and I were too alike and that having two strong personalities in the same company just wouldn’t work. Then luckily, almost like a miracle, Ladurée fell into our lap.

Before you bought the elegant café, you knew it well because your family had been going there for lunch every Saturday for about the last ten years … 

Oh yes, it was a family tradition to meet at Ladurée in the Rue Royale for lunch ever since I left Lille to go to Paris to study. That was in 1985. When we took over in 1993, we had been

41


­already loyal customers at Ladurée for eight years. And you were only  25!  Back then,  there was only one Ladurée, the café in the Rue Royale, but the owners couldn’t decide on a successor and turned to your family for advice. What interested you about the project?  

I already had a vision of selling macarons worldwide and turning Ladurée into an international brand. My family decided to purchase 51% of the shares; 49% remained with the Ladurée family – for seven years, initially. Then we took over entirely. I spent two intense years from 1993 to 1995 learning all there was to know about the company and incorporating its DNA into my blood until I had grasped every imaginable detail about the traditional business from its company culture to its baking secrets. Can you give us an idea of how far Ladurée has come since then by divulging how many macarons were sold every day in the Rue Royale and how many you produce today?  Oh, I cannot say for sure, but let me

think: In 1993 that one café in Paris must have sold about 1500  macarons a day. Today that number has grown to 18,000 a day worldwide… It says on your website (www.laduree.com) that you also accept

effect on my team. It’s also quite a lot of fun to be able to say, like I did a few days ago, that I have a board meeting to attend. The immediate response is always: Oh, so you now have investors? And I answer: Yes, my team! I really do have a team of ten people who are very important to the company and include my pastry chef and CEO. They are the ones who make Ladurée what it is every day and who are essential to our success. I call them my dream team and they’re my only investors. A couple of years ago I asked them if they would like to own 5% of the company and whether they would be prepared to invest money in it based on the evaluations carried out by independent experts every year. To my surprise, they came up with nearly two million euros, for which some of my staff even borrowed money from the bank! How long have you been working with your team?  Some of the staff have worked for the company for three or four years but most of them have been with us for 10 to 15. When you are on the lookout for new international partners so as to open further Ladurée shops and cafés, do you still jump on a plane yourself to go to meet them in person? 

online orders. Is it true that you deliver to people’s doors  in some countries?  Yes, it’s

a relatively new project that my sister Elisabeth has embarked on  (Editor’s note: Elisabeth Holder is responsible for  the U.S. side of the business). She sold a million more macarons in the U.S. in just the first eight months! Meanwhile, we’re testing the concept in France and England and are hoping to expand it further. Why do you produce macarons in two different countries?  The ones you sell in France are produced in France whereas the  ones  you sell around the world are produced in your factory in Switzerland. 

“I inherited my passion from my father’s side of the family. No one could make customers happier or was a better sales person than my grandmother.”

That’s right, nobody goes first but me. I need to be able to get a feeling for exactly whom we will be working with and for the location as well. I’ve also learned from past mistakes in this regard. There was a time when I would sign a contract for a place that I hadn’t actually visited myself, but those businesses didn’t turn out to be sustainable. The more unfamiliar  a market is to me, the more time I spend there. I was recently in Shanghai, China, for an entire week, for instance, and will be leaving for Japan in about two weeks. We want to open new locations in Kyoto and Tokyo.

now. Expansion is easy, but having reason to be proud of each and every Ladurée store – that’s my challenge! Is conquering the Asian market your next big hurdle? Absolutely – and certainly the biggest in all of our company history. Ladurée macarons come in 10 standard varieties (and five seasonal ones). Which is your favorite flavor?  Orange blossom, which was actually developed as a temporary, seasonal flavor. At the time it was on offer, I was negotiating business with my friend the Prince of Kuwait. In Paris, he bought five or six boxes of macarons as a gift for his mother – but only one flavor: orange blossom! I asked him why he only wanted one kind, telling him that it was only a temporary flavor. When I later flew to Kuwait to sign the contract, he refused, saying: I’m not signing. At first I was a little bit angry because I had flown half way around the world for this, but then I understood that he had a plan. He gave me a piece of paper and a pen, saying: I’ll only sign the contract if you promise to include orange blossom in your regular collection of Ladurée macarons. It’s the only way to make my mother happy! What shall I say: I signed that paper, naturally.

Looking into the future, where do you see your company 25 years from now? 

I think the future of Ladurée will be exciting. I spoke to the press the other day to announce the launch of our first vegan Ladurée café in L.A. We’re opening on July 24, 2019. The traditional food will still be available, of course, but there will also be a vegetarian option. This mostly applies to the prepared dishes at the café. We will also be launching a superfood macaron with acai and other macarons with superfood ingredients, as well as vegan cakes, for instance a chocolate cake made with coconut milk. I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years, but I never wanted to make my personal choice the company religion. The world has changed a lot in the last ten years, however, and I think it’s now time for  Ladurée to begin offering customers vegan and vegetarian alternatives. Of course it helps to know from my own experience how good this lifestyle is – for our health and for our planet. Last fall, after failing the first time ten years ago, you made a second attempt to set up shop in Berlin and opened a Ladurée shop in the Charlottenburg district, in the concept store The Corner. What do macarons  and  fashion  have

As it happens, I asked my son Simon a few months ago to learn the baker’s trade. He’s 22. But he quit after just a few weeks because he thought the work was physically too demanding. He’s working in Geneva now, learning the sales angle. But maybe my daughter Sasha, who is 19, will follow in my footsteps. She has my passion. Next year, she’ll be finishing her global management studies at Regent’s University in London. She’s really the image of me and has a lot of my energy!

ASTIDE The flair of Provence in a bottle For New Yorkers Shirin von Wulffen and Frédéric Fekkai, ­­ Aix-en-Provence is a second home. A place where they live in harmony with nature.

This is what a house looks like after two esthetes have finished with it. When Shirin von Wulffen and Frédéric Fekkai started turning their vision into reality, the 17th-century manor house had lots of small rooms. They gutted it completely and created large, airy spaces instead. They wrote the script for the spacious garden as well, and what the couple planted is echoed in the Bastide fragrances. Or in the shower gel made with lavender and honey. “What inspires us about this place,” says Shirin von Wulffen, “are the people and their natural lifestyle. The way the food on the table reflects the seasons of the year.” The couple’s big kitchen provides plenty of space for the mountains of fresh vegetables that accumulate constantly to feed their many guests. And that’s just the way they like it.


When they’re in Provence, Von Wulffen, Fekkai and their children are rarely on their own. The spacious guest house is usually occupied.

Near Mougins on the Côte d’Azur, this 17th century gem of a property sits snugly amidst a beautifully landscaped garden.

A Jewel Steeped in History The medieval mountain village of Mougins lies on a rocky plateau in the hinterland between Cannes and Grasse. The charm of this place, known for its excellent cuisine, has drawn artists and famous figures over the years including Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Winston Churchill and Edith Piaf. This 17th century estate, where jasmine was once dried, was one of the first substantial residences to be built in Mougins.TEXT: Uta Abendroth PHOTOS: Laurent Meesemaecker

years of his life in Mougins. The medieval mountain village also inspired Christian Dior to create several of his collections. Jean Cocteau, Fernand Léger, Paul Éluard, Man Ray, Winston Churchill, Catherine Deneuve and Jacques Brel also all made pilgrimages here. Painters, photographers, designers, poets, actors and politicians from around the world discovered one thing above all else when they arrived: peace. Mougins lies high up on a rocky plateau in the hinterland between Cannes and Grasse. It is delightful countryside full of pines, olive trees and cypresses, ideal for relaxing holidays. From the village, where ancient alleyways, the remains of a 15th century fortress wall and Saracen door have all been preserved, you can look out and admire the Bay of Cannes, the beautiful Lérins Islands and the foothills of the Alps. As if that wasn’t appealing enough in itself, this tranquil little artist colony is also renowned for its sensational gourmet cuisine. There are more than 40 restaurants offering both typical Provençal delicacies and international dishes. Among the most exclusive addresses in the old town are ‘Le Moulin de Mougins’ and ‘L’Amandier de Mougins’; in September the annual “Les Ètoiles de Mougins” takes place – a festival dedicated entirely to gastronomic delights. Northeast of Mougins, outside the village itself, lies an estate that dates all the way back to the 17th century and was one of the very first buildings to spring up in the region. It is an L-shaped design constructed from irregular ochre-coloured stones that sits nestled in the undulating scenery. In the past, horse-drawn carriages delivered jasmine, which was then dried in one area of the former farmhouse. This was – and still is – typical for this region around the municipality of Grasse, which has a reputation for being the world capital of perfume. Since the 17th century, perfumiers have been extracting the floral scents here, especially from jasmine and orange blossoms.

trast to the smooth plastered white walls and black window frames. In the entrance hallway, where the two wings of the building – the residential house and the former barn – meet, the rustic look of the outer walls is echoed: with roughly hewn stone in all shades ranging from beige to grey. This is juxtaposed by the staircase, designed with precise, straight lines and painted in anthracite – a visually stunning contrast. Especially because the stone steps in light beige again make an interesting counterpoint. The large old fireplace with its high mantelpiece provides cosy warmth in the wintertime or on cool evenings, and there are even some wooden doors with their slightly weathered surface on full display that still serve their purpose. The current owner says that she was very respectful of the atmosphere of the original building during the renovation work. She has always felt the desire to travel back in time, and to sense that nothing has changed, that everything is in harmony. he ground floor is surprising  for its generous dimensions. One could be forgiven for expecting rather small and gloomy rooms in such an old house, but instead an almost loft-like ambience opens up. The living room is separated from the dining room only by a glazed wall, while the kitchen with its counters and bar stools forms an integral part of the space. It is the colours white, anthracite and beige with occasional accents in wood that give a unison to the entire scene. Even the upholstery of the armchairs in the salon, the sofa cushions and the bar stools in the kitchen are identical. The raised ground floor hosts a bedroom complete with a dressing room and bathroom. On the first floor of the main house there are three more bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There is also a television room with a bedroom and bathroom that has its own separate entrance. Great effort was poured into the redesign of the property’s grounds. The garden, planted with a variety of Mediterranean flora, was conceived by the architecture practice ‘Archi Paysage’ and the realisation was carried out by landscape gardeners from the local company ‘Elite Paysage’. There are several designated areas, such as the French garden with rose bushes, peonies and hydrangeas, the scented garden where herbs can be picked for the kitchen, and the socalled welcome garden with an old water feature. Residents and guests can sit here under the cover of a pergola, enjoy a game of boules in the shade of the trees, or unwind by the large pool. Art, which plays an important role in the interior decoration of the house, also sets accents in the garden. For example, a giant apple from the ‘Fruits céramique’ collection, designed by Brazilian artist Lisa Pappon, which shines in an intense blue reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent’s house in the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. The property is ideally located as well: Just 15 minutes from Cannes, its beaches and festivals. Some eight kilometres to Grasse, 40 kilometres to the nearest winter sports resort, and only 30 minutes to Nice International Airport. Anybody fortunate enough to make the journey here and experience this place with find a special way of life in Mougins: a sense of relaxation that is hard to match anywhere else.

Peace and tranquillity reign throughout this 400-year-old house. There is a real sense that everything here coalesces in perfect harmony.

S

ince its original construction, the house has been completely trans-

formed, at least inside.  But the fact that horses were once tethered here can be seen where the metal rings have been preserved in the walls along the lower section of the house, even after modernisation. When it was converted into a modern and comfortable holiday home, the exterior remained almost entirely unchanged. Only a few large openings for patio doors, which can be completely retracted, were hewn into the thick stone walls along the single-storey elevation of the building: on the ground floor, where the large living room can be found. And in order to allow more light through into the first floor of the main house, narrow embrasures were incorporated into the end walls. The other windows are framed by light blue shutters that allow those dwelling within to block the Mediterranean sun out of the bedrooms completely. Inside, some of the original building features have been preserved. The old barn’s ceiling with its exposed wooden beams can still be admired looming high above the salon. This forms an appealing con-

a craftsman, and that means you start work at half past seven,” says Patrick-Louis Vuitton. Dressed in a gray and slightly crumpled suit, he leads us into the salon of the family home: a villa in the Paris suburb of Asnières, lavishly decorated in art nouveau style. There are floral patterns on the windows, a fireplace shaped like flower stems, golden chandeliers, Chesterfield sofas, bourgeois splendor wherever you look. For 34 years of his life, the bearer of the great name was forever popping in and out of the house built by his great-great-grandfather Louis Vuitton: He lived right next door. In 1984, the villa was converted into a salon for hosting company receptions. Monsieur Vuitton sits down on a gray velvet armchair, lights his pipe and talks about the days when trains and steamships began changing the world and refined society discovered the delights of travel: “Louis Vuitton picked up on the mood of the times when he started making hardwearing luggage in 1854.” He specialized in huge trunks with compartments in which china, jewelry or hats could be transported without fear of damage. Many of these historical items are on show in “la galerie,” a sort of private travel museum. They include the trunk that was developed for Africa pioneer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza: a fold-out camp bed that ensured a good night’s sleep even in the bush. Or the one for conductor Leopold Stokowski, complete with desk and storage compartments for books and scores. The fact that the empty trunks themselves could weigh as much as 60 kilograms didn’t really matter much to the well-heeled travelers because they wouldn’t be the ones carrying them: In those days, one had staff for things like that. Before long, Louis Vuitton invented a replacement for the heavy leather used to cover the outside of the trunks: canvas impregnated with rye flour – initially gray, then striped, and eventually checkered.

Benoît-Louis and Pierre-Louis. One of them is a store director in Toronto, the other is responsible for a production site in the Rhone Valley. When Patrick-Louis Vuitton learned the art of trunk making in Asnières in the early 1970s, the business employed just 115 people. Today it’s 250. He never questioned that he would follow in the footsteps of his father, Claude. “I grew up next to the factory with the smell of leather and wood in my nostrils. We five kids would make swords and arrows out of the remnants left over from production and play cowboys and Indians,” he recalls. “And on Thursdays, Great-Grandmother Joséphine would have us to lunch at the table over there.” He points to the big dining table that follows on from the salon. “My great-grandma lived to be 104; she lived through the Franco-Prussian war and both the world wars and had plenty of stories to tell. Like the one when the Prussians stole potatoes and carrots out of our front garden.” or him, craftsmanship means dedication to the product,  discipline and lifelong learning. Even today, he still masters every step in the process – from cutting the wood to operating the sewing machine. Patrick-Louis Vuitton is responsible for bespoke special orders. He built a luxurious transport box for the dogs of Louis Vuitton’s former head designer Marc Jacobs and a special trunk for celebrity chef Ferran Adrià, with space not just for aprons but for various tins – the Spaniard always collects spices on his travels. “Plus,” he smiles, “it was really important to find a safe space for his talisman, a magazine. Oh, oops, I nearly said too much there.” Discretion is important, and Vuitton doesn’t want to disclose too many names and details: “A custom-made trunk reveals all sorts of things about the person it’s made for and their idiosyncrasies.” For a Chinese customer, he made a trunk with a DVD player, a screen and a coffee machine that can be powered entirely by solar energy if required. For a collector, he built a transport box for 120 batons that once belonged to conductors from Wagner to Karajan. And he went to London to meet artist Damien Hirst, who wanted a he trunk entrepreneur made traveling presentation case for his surgeon’s instruments.

in time for International Women’s Day in March, shortly after her own birthday and right on the heels of Fashion Week, GG invited a group of international power women and friends to Paris to attend a lunch in honor of the launch of our GG Power Women issue and cover star Barbara Sturm. During the threecourse meal at the restaurant of the Le Bristol hotel, the successful skincare specialist from Germany talked about her career and motivated her female guests to never stop believing in themselves. Several weeks later, GG hosted a group of New York power women to coincide with Dr. Sturm opening her first Boutique and Spa – a worldwide first – in SoHo. More than 60 women from the fashion, beauty and real estate industries met at the restaurant of The Mark Hotel on New York’s Upper East Side. While making new connections, the famous beauty doctor explained how to keep your skin healthy. The highlight of the event was once again the cake! In Paris, the beauty expert received a copy of the magazine cover – made entirely of sugar. In New York, GG’s guest of honor was presented with a “face cream” cake by editor-in-chief Michaela Cordes, which Barbara Sturm later served to her guests herself, saying: “Delicious and guaranteed anti-inflammatory!”

France: The Cookbook Ginette Mathiot, Phaidon, approx. € 40

Bon appétit! The 1,400 recipes in this cooking bible showcase ­authentic, time-honored French cuisine – the world’s best traditional fare. With this volume, author Ginette Mathiot has published the French counterpart to the bestselling Italian The Silver Spoon cook book. Its 976 pages prove that French cooking can be deliciously uncomplicated and put you in the mood for some of the famous French savoir-vivre.

The Allure of Men François Baudot, Assouline, approx. € 58

Gary Cooper, Errol Flynn, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Yves Saint Laurent – men who were desired and envied, but also liked to provoke. Style expert François Baudot demonstrates the immense f­ ascination these men still hold for many today. His book and its eye-catching black-and-white photographs are a monument to male icons.

Lafourcade Hang on! This book rack ­suspends up to twelve books in the air. A clever design by Agustav, approx. € 224.

BOOK

TIP

Dane McDowell, Caroline Guiol, Bruno Suet, Éditions Loco, € 45 (in French)

For generations, the Lafourcade family based in St. Rémy, Provence, have dedicated themselves to architecture, refurbishing buildings and designing beautiful gardens. In this 212-page book, the family allow r­ eaders rare glimpses into the unique private residences, chateaux and vineyards they have worked on in the South of France over the years, sharing their unique way of life and their love of detail and design.

PARIS

Serge Ramelli, teNeues, approx. € 40

Paris – a symbol of culture, art and love. This cosmopolitan city keeps enchanting people with its elegance and energy, and great artists have left their mark all over it. So it’s not surprising that photographers like Serge Ramelli constantly find inspiration here. The dramatic lighting makes Ramelli’s images almost cinematic, highlighting the beauty of the metropolis.

Monet

Daniel Wildenstein has devoted the 480 pages of this book to an exceptional painter who was dedicated to capturing light on canvas – Claude Monet. This in-depth biography closely traces the life and work of the Impressionist artist, using carefully composed texts, numerous reproductions and fantastic archival photographs. It doesn’t get more beautiful than this.

Flowers

Sixtine Dubly, Assouline, approx. € 76

Flowers and art – a never-ending love story. Painters like Vincent van Gogh, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and artistic allrounder Andy Warhol all drew inspiration from the potency and beauty of flowers throughout their lives. In this magnificent book, design author Sixtine Dubly explores the development of, and fascination created by, numerous works of art. And she takes the reader on a 272-page sensual journey into the floral worlds of 40 contemporary artists.

that allows you to experience the exhibits three-dimensionally,” says Jean Nouvel, the architect of the new national m ­ useum of the emirate of Qatar. The French Pritzker Prize laureate is famous for his spectacular structures, like the Louvre in Abu Dhabi, the Philharmonie de Paris in the Parc de la Villette and the concert hall in Copenhagen. The museum in Doha is situated in a prominent location inside a newly developed neighborhood. It complements other cultural institutions in the area, such as the Museum of Islamic Art designed by I. M. Pei. The building seems to have been assembled from 539 sand-colored discs, whose shape and interconnectedness are designed to mirror rose rocks – crystalline mineral structures found in some parts of Qatar. The large-scale project took roughly ten years and $ 434 million to complete. The themes of the museum include Qatar’s history and its ­v ision for the future. The 52,000-square meter development includes the palace where Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani resided in the early 20th century – comprehensively refurbished and incorporated into the new architectural structure.
