FULL FRONTAL

Graphic and novel PhotograPher DaviD Maialetti sees PhiladelPhia through a different lens.

As a photographer for The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News since 1998, David Maialetti makes his living taking photos. But even when he’s off the clock, he doesn’t stop snapping; he merely switches the camera.

14  phillystylemag.com

Using only an iPhone, the 49-year-old Fishtown resident scours Philly for images of city life to post on his Instagram account, @maialetti, which has more than 47,000 followers. The photographs, captured in a mix of shadowy black and white

and saturated color, are a scroll-worthy collage of athletes, architecture, and streetscapes. “People, light, and shadow are important elements in my photographs,” Maialetti says. “I’ll search for an interesting background and wait

for people to walk into the scene. I try to blend in wherever I go and work unnoticed. Humor or odd things inspire me.” He first joined Instagram when he was teaching a class in Italy several years ago and a study abroad student asked why he

didn’t have an account. Lacking an answer, he signed up. “It quickly became a place to share images that didn’t quite fit with the stories I was working on for the newspapers,” Maialetti says. “I’m doing what I love to do.”

LETTER From THE EDITor-IN-CHIEF

Location, location, location. It’s an adage that we hear constantly in the world of real estate. We borrow the catchphrase often at Philadelphia Style, where the right location may or may not have to do with the best views but has everything to do with reflecting the words on the page. There’s no story where the “L” word is more important than our annual “Best of Style” feature, where seven settings across the city become the backdrop for our favorite Philly personalities. Mayor Jim Kenney leads the charge, for his first major moment in Philadelphia Style since becoming mayor. Fittingly, we snapped him outside his “office” at City Hall. Mayor

Kenney will be front and center when Philly hosts the Democratic National Convention in late July. It’s yet another milestone for the city, which has already enjoyed so much attention over the last few years. (Hello, Pope Francis.) For all of the delegates, tourists, and media personalities converging in Philly for the DNC, my only insider tip is to take a walk. Yes, it’s really that simple. William Penn, known as the father of Philadelphia, built the city on a grid so it’s difficult to get lost and even easier to get found. Walking sans Google Maps lets you be surprised. I’ve lived here my entire life and I’m still surprised by some of the random things

that I cross paths with during my frequent, aimless Sunday afternoon tours around town. Like the tulips that almost magically appeared one day around the Liberty Bell building, or discovering that some of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s relatives are buried at St. Mary’s Church in Society Hill. A few weekends ago I took a shortcut through a gated park in Old City and found a lonely little sign that described the importance of backyards during Colonial times. Who knew? I did. And all because I decided to put my phone away for a few hours and just take a walk.

Welcome to our Summer issue, which is dedicated, in part, to our “Art of the City” feature. Now in its third successful year, we celebrate the most talented, eclectic, and buzzworthy artists from Philadelphia and across the country. The American flag cover is a beautiful tribute to our nation and city alike. Painted by Meg Saligman, the longtime Philly-based artist is the brush behind some of Philly’s most iconic murals. In the cover story, Saligman talks about the inspiration behind the cover and its recent restoration. A brighter, bolder flag will be officially unveiled

just in time for the city’s huge Wawa Welcome America party for the Fourth of July. This cover also coincides with another major event taking place this summer. All eyes will be on Philadelphia as we put our best foot forward and welcome the Democratic delegates and media alike for the Democratic National Convention in July. I can’t think of a better setting for the DNC than here in Philadelphia, the birthplace of American government and home to some of the most important historical landmarks in the US. In this issue you will also find our annual “Best of Style”

feature. Each year, our editors scour the city from Society Hill to Chestnut Hill and everywhere in between, reporting on the best of the best in dining, shopping, beauty, and more. This is a wonderful resource for all of our visitors and residents to reference throughout the summer months and beyond. We hope you enjoy this exciting edition of Philadelphia Style.

LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER


...WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE

Sarah Jordan

daryl Peveto

Sarah Jordan is a National Magazine Award-nominated writer who lives in Philadelphia. She has written extensively for national and regional magazines and newspapers and is the author of four books.

Commercial and editorial photographer Daryl Peveto lives in Valley Forge with his wife, Jen, and three children, Finn, Harper, and Beckett. When not shooting, he can be found reading, cooking, chopping wood, making things by hand, or playing with his children, though not necessarily in that order.

Writer

Exclusively at

1811 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 1.215.735.2666 joanshepp.com Urban Zen is a lifestyle inspired by Donna Karan’s travels and the work of artisans around the world.

Tell us about your experience with Philly art collectors Kathy and Keith Sachs for our “Art Full” story. I marveled at how they have beautifully integrated their love of art into the way they live their lives—from their friendships with artists and curators to their trips around the world to visit favorite art galleries, art fairs, and museums. Was there anything you were surprised to learn in your DNC research for this issue’s back page? I was surprised to learn how rich our city’s background is in ice cream. Breyer’s, Bassetts, Jack & Jill Ice Cream, and Rita’s Water Ice, to name a few, all originated here.

Photographer

You photographed this issue’s “Best of Style” personalities. Any interesting stories? Each portrait offered interesting moments, be it climbing a tree with Connor Barwin, discussing amari with the staff of Gran Caffe while waiting for Brooke Thomas to get styled, getting a tour of Old City with Jeff Guaracino, or talking politics with the mayor’s staff. Any challenges? We wanted several of the portraits outside, so I was constantly monitoring the weather patterns using NOAA satellites. Fortunately I have a great weather app.

A PHILOSOPHY OF LIVING


Michael Spain-SMith

Danielle DavieS

Photographer

Writer

A seasoned collaborator and worldwide traveler, Michael Spain-Smith is a Philadelphia-based photographer known for capturing authentic lifestyle moments in a storytelling and stylized way. He works with a wide range of clients including Loews Hotels, Ritz-Carlton, St-Germain, Random House, Novartis, Triumph, and Victory Motorcycle.

South Jersey-based freelance writer Danielle Davies can often be found covering two of her favorite things—food and entertainment. Davies spends most of her free time chasing her kids, working on her memoir, and updating her websites, mylifewith bradleycooper.com and danielledavies.com.

Meg Saligman, the artist behind this issue’s cover, must have been fun to photograph. What a talented artist! Working with Meg was an awesome collaboration as she gave us full access to her studio. I’ve known her work for years so it was very cool to meet her. She was open to whatever we needed to create strong work for this story. How did you create the photo concept? Her mural work is always viewed from below so it has a very heroic quality. I wanted to capture her in the same manner.

You wrote about what’s new in Atlantic City. What are you most excited for this summer? As the city works to reinvent itself, we’re seeing so much creativity. From Ivan Kane’s newest club to the menus and live entertainment lineup, Atlantic City is still an entertainment force to be reckoned with. What’s your favorite Jersey Shore landmark? I’m a sucker for anything quaint or eclectic, so I really love the brick streets of Washington Street Mall in Cape May. I guess they remind me of Philly!

Social StudieS Break the rules aBout never talking politics in puBlic during PoliticalFest.

No one can say Election 2016 has been boring. But all those popcorn-worthy debates may have left you wondering, well, how the US government actually works. PoliticalFest, running July 22–27 in conjunction with the DNC, has at least some of the answers. This unique festival tells the story of American political history and government through

performances, interactive displays, and special guests. Philadelphia history figures in, naturally, thanks to some of the city’s top cultural attractions. Running through Election Day, the National Constitution Center’s “Headed to the White House” exhibit details the election process, while the Convention Center offers more kid-friendly fare.

Presidential china and dresses worn by First Ladies are two of the highlights at the National Liberty Museum, and there are historical objects and documents galore to explore at the Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent, the Philadelphia Library Company, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the Heritage Center at

the Union League. Former Governor Ed Rendell, chairman of the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee, created PoliticalFest when the city hosted the Republican National Convention in 2000. “We expect it to be even more fun, engaging, and innovative this time around,” says Rendell. We can describe Election 2016 the same way. phldnc.com

Visit PhiladelPhia maVen Meryl levitz maPs out her must-see stoPs for a whirlwind stay in Philly. DECKED OUT.

Levitz suggests getting a lay of the land from one of the city’s two observation decks, the new One Liberty experience and City Hall’s prime perch. Both are “instructive by day and have pretty views at night,” says Levitz. RING THE ALARM.

Drop by the Fireman’s Hall Museum while exploring Old City. “There are a half-dozen fire trucks from 100 and 200 years ago… plus kids can try on fireman’s gear,” notes Levitz.

Visiting all five of William Penn’s squares: Rittenhouse, Franklin, Washington, Center, and Logan Circle. Explains Levitz, “Penn laid out a perfect grid, simple in design and radical in meaning. Philly is the first planned city.” HALL OF FAME.

“If the walls of Congress Hall could talk, they’d provide the lowdown on the debates that took place when representatives and senators from the fledgling nation assembled here,” says Levitz. The House of Representatives met on the first floor, which looks as it did for John Adams’s inauguration in 1797. A PENNY SAVED…

Walk through Christ Church Burial Ground and “throw a penny on Ben Franklin’s grave for luck,” says Levitz. Superstitious? Yes. But we could all use a little of Franklin’s good fortune. For more information visit visitphilly.com.

History in the Making As she completes her historic second run As ceo of the dnc, reverend Leah D. Daughtry gives us A peek into her very pAtriotic world.

“THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS A WONDERFUL TAPESTRY OF A GREAT MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF AMERICANS.” —LEAH D. DAUGHTRY

Biggest accomplishment: Keeping a lot of balls in the air so I’m able to be a businesswoman, a daughter, an auntie, a pastor, and a friend. Significance of the DNC being held in Philadelphia: As they say, the past is prologue. So being in a city where our nation was founded, and where a group of people with the best of intentions came together to work through differences, is significant and has reverberations for us as Democrats. On her team’s diversity: The Democratic Party is a wonderful tapestry of a great many different kinds of Americans. And so to have a staff that reflects that means we embrace diversity and, ultimately, we learn that you don’t have to be just like me, to be just like me. On breaking barriers: Barriers were broken for me in order for me to have this position, and it’s my responsibility to ensure that the same path remains clear. Hopefully I can open the door wider for the young Democrats who will come behind me. Words of advice: Embrace hard work. Don’t be afraid of starting at the bottom, and don’t be afraid of the ascent, because it makes reaching the top that much sweeter. Secret indulgence: Shoes. I can say no to food, to clothing, but shoes have their own budget line item. You can never have too many pairs of black shoes.

MiniMalisM to the Max Art lovers athy And eith SachS offer A long-AwAited glimpse into their world-clAss collection of contemporAry works.

There’s no denying one huge perk of collecting art by living artists: Not only can they discuss their work, they can also become your friends. Kathy and Keith Sachs have been collecting art since they graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1960s. Keith went on to become the CEO of his family’s business, Saxco International, and Kathy worked at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Originally, their collecting served simply to decorate their home in Rydal (and later, an apartment in New York), but they eventually realized their many world-class Minimalist works couldn’t just be for their eyes only: The collection would need to reach a larger audience.

72  phillystylemag.com

And now it has: In January 2014, the couple promised to donate 97 works to the Art Museum; the museum presents a preview of this stellar collection—estimated to be worth around $70 million—from June 28 through September 5 in “Embracing the Contemporary.” Kathy and Keith now count some of the contemporary art world’s brightest stars as friends: artists Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, and Charles Ray to name a few. Sculptors Richard Serra, Richard Long, and Joel Shapiro all have spent time at the couple’s Rydal home. “Our conversations with artists still excite us. The only change over time is that they have become more natural,” says Kathy. “The visits continue to be inspiring.” philamuseum.org

When ESPN The Magazine approached Paige Selenski about appearing in the Body Issue last year, the All-American field hockey forward and 2012 Olympian was skeptical. Picture-perfect physique or not, the shoot’s wardrobe included little more than a strategically placed field hockey stick. “It was a vulnerable piece and kind of risky,” says Selenski, who still calls Lancaster County home and grew up going to Phillies games and making cheesesteak runs with her dad. “But, ultimately, the story allowed me to showcase our sport.” With that model moment behind her, Selenski now has her sights set on another star turn: a second appearance at the Summer Olympics. Training at this level is nearly a full-time job, she says, with six days a week of weights, conditioning, yoga, and double practice sessions. But after five years on the US National Team and competitions around the globe under her belt, Selenski, who has been playing field hockey since she was 10 years old, knows what it takes to win. “The last Olympics was incredible—I was a bit starstruck,” admits Selenski, who finds out whether the US Women’s National Team will advance to the Olympics when announcements are made in July. “This time I won’t be as focused on the big picture. It’s about what you need to do to win a medal.”

PhotograPhy by Melissa hoM

Philadelphia unknowingly had its first taste of the LDV Hospitality experience at Atlantic City’s Revel, when American Cut and Azure by Allegretti brought some sexy New York dining sensibility to the city by the sea in 2012. Around that same time LDV president and founder John Meadow was exploring spaces here for Scarpetta, the group’s wellknown modern Italian concept with addresses in Miami, Las Vegas, the Hamptons, and New York. Nothing felt right—until The Rittenhouse hotel’s bilevel restaurant space became available. “For five years I said no to everything, but I walked in here and immediately said I want this,” says Meadow, who has spent plenty of time in Philly over the years with his wife and her parents, who grew up here. “I have a real appreciation for the city and its history.” Scarpetta promises to bring some excitement to that sleepier side of the Square with its bevy of Italian spirits and regional wines taking center stage in the first-floor lounge and familiar plates like tomato-basil spaghetti, creamy polenta, and branzino—plus dishes inspired by the seasons and local ingredients— circulating around the upstairs dining room, served by a few familiar faces from LDV’s AC outposts. The décor is all subdued hues, exposed brick, and reclaimed woods throughout. And though Scarpetta is an NYC export, Meadow says that the spot will have a true local feel: “Philly is our sister city. We may be from New York, but we want to become part of this city, too.” ldvhospitality.com/brands/scarpetta

Guitar Heroes Trade Those flip-flops for cowboy booTs when Lady antebeLLum lighTs up aTlanTic ciTy for a second summer. By Michelle Mass

78  phillystylemag.com

Lady Antebellum has performed around the world more than a few times since the group formed in 2006, but we like to think that the Nashville trio (Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood) have a soft spot for the City of Brotherly Love. In 2014, they took the stage at The Hamels Foundation’s Annual Diamonds & Denim charity event and managed to bring even

some of the Phillies to their feet belting out party-anthem covers, and last summer, Lady A hit Atlantic City for a free beach concert that drew 65,000 fans. The eight-time Grammy winners return to AC on August 14 for a show at Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa toting new tunes from their fifth studio album, 747, and radio hits like “Love Don’t Live Here” and “I Run to You.” Marilyn

Russell, host of 95.7 Ben FM Mornings, calls their 2009 smash single “Need You Now” one of “the most perfect break-up songs ever,” and we fully agree. “The haunting melody and emotion put forth is spot on... we’ve all been there. Oh, the humanity! It’s a real heartbreaker,” she says. The only thing more heartbreaking? Missing out on tickets. theborgata.com

SCENE CHEERS!

BEAT THE HEAT WITH A CITRUSY-SWEET APEROL SPRITZ AT NEW HOT SPOT ASSEMBLY. BY MICHELLE MASS

We love our outdoor sipping in Philly, but there have been precious few rooftop getaways worthy of bypassing our cherished sidewalk seats. Things are finally looking up, literally, with the opening of Assembly at The Logan. Step out of the elevator on the ninth floor of the hotel, where hosts armed with synchronized iPads usher you past glass doors to the open-air lounge. The design scheme— mirrored panels, illuminated main bar, sleek furnishings—is pure understated cool, but who’s looking at the curvy couches with these views? Bring a phone with a full charge to take photo (after photo) of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, stretching from City Hall to the Art Museum. Cocktails are prone to spark a little creativity, so be sure to have a drink from their Champagne-centric menu. “To us, it’s all about the assembly,” says Beverage Director Brandon Wise. “The better ingredients you use, the better the end product.” And Assembly’s finest end product for alfresco summer evenings is the fragrant Aperol Spritz, a citrusy mix of Prosecco, Aperol, and soda water served in a glass big enough to swim in. The Italians have enjoyed this sparkling aperitif for generations. You get to enjoy it all summer. Saluti! assemblyrooftop.com

When Kasie Hunt arrives in July to cover the DNC, she won’t just be delivering nearnonstop news coverage for MSNBC and NBC—she’ll also be playing the part of tour guide for her fellow journalists. It’s a role the Wayne native tried on for size while covering a rally for Bernie Sanders at Temple University in April. “It’s fun to tell people which restaurants to try or to go run up the Art Museum steps,” says the current DC resident. “I’m surprised by how much I remember.” Hunt also recalls games at Veterans Stadium and exploring Valley Forge Park, which was her “backyard” growing up. She had always been a “news junkie” as a kid, but September 11

proved a pivotal moment in determining her career path. “I remember standing in the hallway at Conestoga High School when 9/11 happened. I came home and turned on the TV and I never really stopped watching [the news].” Fast forward a little more than a decade, and Hunt is not only on the news, she’s making news: She was the first person to interview Donald Trump following his announcement that he would run for president. Her “front-row seat to history” is almost as exciting as returning to her hometown this summer, says Hunt. “I’ve traveled to nearly all of the 50 states [covering the election], so I’ve realized how much it means to come home.”

Pulitzer Prize It’s not summer—or fall— In PhIlly wIthout lIlly, as one of fashIon’s last herItage brands and the gold standard of resortwear exPands Its collectIon and brIngs back Its greatest hIts of PrInts.

From the suburbs to the sand, looks like Lilly Pulitzer’s Georgia May Palazzo pants in Multi Island Time ($138) reflect not only the brand’s multi-generational appeal but a big move into fall-ready fashion.

By Kristin Detterline

It’s a summery day in late spring, and Lilly Pulitzer is packed with shoppers. Moms are sorting through the racks for shift dresses while their teenaged daughters eye rompers lined with pom-poms and junior Lilly lovers tug at bathing suits. It’s a scene that has played out countless times since Lilly Pulitzer, the woman, launched Lilly Pulitzer, the brand, after opening her first boutique in Palm Beach, Florida, in the ’60s. Walking through the label’s King of Prussia Mall flagship, not far from the company’s headquarters and the site of their annual warehouse sale, the late founder Pulitzer feels very much alive: Black-and-white photos, old postcards, and an original shift dress dot the walls. The gleaming white interior makes Lilly’s signature resortwear prints feel even more vibrant. And the prints are where the brand’s story begins, when Pulitzer famously designed her first shift to camouflage clothing stains from working at a Palm Beach juice stand—“It’s the ultimate example of fashion born from necessity,” says Pulitzer executive Janie Paradis—and, later, tasked her Key West artist friends to create custom pieces îî

phillystylemag.com  87


for fabric prints. Thanks to a dozen full-time artists (who now travel to resort spots like Costa Rica and Tulum for inspiration), that tradition happily continues today. Paradis adds that the Lilly team develops nearly all of the brand’s dreamy colors, too. This union of custom color and custom prints result in hundreds of samples, a fraction of which will make it to the collection, even fewer of which will achieve the stuff of Lilly legend. “Everyone knows the name of their favorite print,” says Paradis, ticking off cheeky monikers like Cluck, Hibiscus Stroll, and Lovers Coral as some of the most popular. To capitalize on the sentimental feeling that Lilly loyalists have for certain patterns, the brand launched Pop Up Prints earlier this year. “We’re bringing back favorites,” says Paradis. The company launched with the navy-andpink For the Halibut and it almost immediately sold out. The social media firestorm (or sandstorm, in this case) around Pop Up Prints has been a hit with the increasingly important millennial set, and Paradis notes that social media has been a natural fit for the uber-visual brand. But it’s more than that. “Social media reminds us of Lilly’s original juice stand, where people went to find out what was going on in Palm Beach,” says Paradis. As Lilly Pulitzer continues to evolve with new stores and a focus on layerable knits, the brand remains a summer wardrobe staple on the Main Line, where one of Lilly’s earliest boutiques was located in Bryn Mawr. “Women grow up their entire lives able to wear Lilly,” says Paradis. “It’s a heritage that not many brands have.” lillypulitzer.com

Bold prints, graphic patterns, pops of color— Africa’s contemporary fashion scene is as visually thrilling as its wildlife safaris. The Art Museum’s “Creative Africa,” a multidimensional look at artistic expression across the continent on view through September, includes two

94  phillystylemag.com

shows devoted to style: “Threads of Tradition” and “Vlisco: African Fashions on a Global Stage.” “It’s very much a story about appropriation, reappropriation, and cultural integration,” Dilys Blum, the museum’s senior curator of costume and textiles and organizer of the

Vlisco show, whose waxdesigned luxury fabrics have been a mainstay for Africa’s style set since the mid-1800s. The brand has a serious celebrity fan base, too: Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, and Jill Biden have all been photographed in Vlisco. For Blum, the marriage of traditional fabrics and luxe

aesthetics that dressmakers employ to create customized styles excites her most. “It’s seeing how wax-printed textiles creatively combine to make contemporary and classic looks,” Blum says, noting a couture piece from West African fashion pioneer Sera Perfection as one of the highlights of the

25 costumes on display. But Blum hopes more than fashion will resonate with visitors. “It’s the unraveling of the history,” she says. “There’s a craft in the way textiles are designed and used, and hopefully that will express the joyful experience of Africa.” philamuseum.org

Even as Chloe Johnston readies for a busy summer dreaming up itineraries for jetsetters intent on finding the best flea markets in Paris or top kitchens in New York, the Devon-based brains behind luxury travel firm CJ Tours (chloejohnston .com) is adding party planner to her repertoire: On July 12, Johnston will throw a Bastille Day fête with dancing, sparklers, and—naturally—lots of bubbles. Here, the unabashed Francophile shares her favored Philly finds. Retail Therapy. A self-described “boutique girl,” Johnston scours the designer racks at Joan Shepp, Jade’s Closet, and Eaves. Bus Stop Boutique is another favorite for its eclectic shoe labels. Horsing Around. Johnston’s favorite hometown fashion event is the fascinator-filled Devon Horse Show and Country Fair: “It’s such a

great community event with lots of local boutiques and different designers. And I’m obsessed with the lemon sticks.” Standing Reservations. The food is just as important as the fashion on Johnston’s high-end jaunts. Her Philly favorites span three zip codes: Laurel in South Philly, Spring Mill Café in Conshohocken, and Zeppoli in Collingswood, New Jersey. Making Moves. Johnston says that running her business in Philly has its advantages— like the “one-degree connection” that exists between friends, family, and fellow entrepreneurs. “There is definitely a support network [here] for female business owners.” Wardrobe Wishes. One thing Philly needs? More vintage boutiques, says Johnston. “The European market still has the advantage.”

STYLE BEAUT Y

WHETHER POOLSIDE IN THE CITY OR SUNBATHING AT THE BEACH, TRY LUSH EYELASH EXTENSIONS ON FOR SIZE THIS SUMMER. BY CAITLIN WARE

PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Summer beauty has always been associated with sun-kissed skin, wind-swept curls, and natural makeup—but what’s not so natural is sweeping on thick coats of waterproof mascara to prevent raccoon eyes by the pool. Enter eyelash extensions, a beauty treatment that’s having a major moment in Philadelphia right now thanks to a boom in lash bars. “Extensions are perfect for the summer,” says Anjali Bhatia, cofounder of LashBee

(lashbee.com) in Center City, adding that clients can swim and spend time in the sun without worrying. “Plus, they really do look natural.” Eyelash extensions have gained popularity recently thanks to new luxury products and lash menus. “It’s been a popular service for our salons for nearly 10 years now, but this past year business has skyrocketed thanks to our new lash line,” says Sam Lehman, president of Adolf Biecker Spa/Salon (adolfbiecker .com), which has addresses

in Center City, University City, and on the Main Line. “We offer two types of lashes, synthetic and genuine mink. The mink is the most luxurious.” The application process—extensions are attached one-by-one to individual lashes—takes upwards of two hours, and extensions can last up to four weeks. Whichever style you chose, one thing is for sure—summer beauty will be a breeze. Says Bhatia: “It’s incredible to wake up in the morning and be ready to go.”

Zen and Now Donna aran’s philosophy of living touches down in philly with a new collection of luxe global goods.

Luxe separates like a linen top ($795) and silk pants ($895) pair well with handcrafted jewelry like beaded leather necklaces ($2,295) and cuffs ($1,395) from the Urban Zen Spring 2016 Collection.

“Fresh, clean, understated, and effortlessly chic.” That’s how Joan Shepp describes Urban Zen, the lifestyle brand curated by Donna Karan that brings artisan treasures to shoppers with an eye for eclectic wares from around the world. Those same words also characterize the look and feel of the exclusive new shop-in-shop that resides in Shepp’s namesake boutique. “Urban Zen brings something new to Philadelphia retail,” Shepp says of the luxe label that’s stocked with ready-towear, minimal-meets-global pieces (Shepp’s favorite: high-waisted pants with a tribal print), home décor, and furnishings, all culled from craftsmen in places like Haiti, Bali, and Thailand. Better yet? The brand supports the Urban Zen Foundation, founded by Karan, which raises awareness and partners with organizations to empower children and preserve cultures around the world. Says Shepp: “I can truly say that in my 45 years of business, I have never been so excited and proud to present such an inspiring collection to the Philadelphia area.” Happy hunting. 1811 Chestnut St., 215-735-2666; joanshepp.com

Philadelphia muralist Meg Saligman’s iconic public art works combine the classical with the contemporary. Meg painted Philadelphia’s landmark mural, Common Threads (1998), and has since been at the forefront of the contemporary mural movement and worked on projects around the world from Mexico City to

Tanzania including a handful in Philadelphia. In 2006, Public Art Review featured Saligman as one of the ten most influential American muralists of the past decade. She has received numerous awards, including the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program’s Visionary Artist Award. Philadelphia Style’s proposed cover will be one of Saligman’s most recognizable, which is seen by thousands each day as they travel the Ben Franklin Bridge. The 6000 square foot American flag was painted on the side of a Philly warehouse two months after 9/11 as part of the Mural Arts program. Her work, “Common Threads”, is possibly the most famous of Philadelphia’s hundreds of murals. THE DRUMETTES

PHILADELPHIA

MEG SALIG MAN THE PHILADELPHIA ARTIST AND MURALIST HAS CREATED SOME OF THE CITY’S MOST ICONIC PUBLIC ARTWORKSINCLUDING AN INSTALLATION FOR THE POPE’S VISIT LAST FALLAND THIS SUMMER SHE REIMAGINES TWO OF THEM. BY JOANN GRECO As a young girl growing up near Buffalo, New York, artist Meg Saligman often came to Philadelphia with her family to visit an uncle who lived on a houseboat at Penn’s Landing. Not surprisingly, after graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in fine arts, she found the lure of free housing in such a romantic setting, combined with the city’s thriving arts scene, irresistible. “I fell in love with Philadelphia and never left,” she says. Thirty years later, Saligman has become an integral part of the vibrant cultural life that drew her here, having created such beloved images as Our Flag Unfurled in Old City. Painted on the side of a warehouse near the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the mural was an immediate response to the events of 9/11. But now Saligman, 50, is meticulously restoring the piece so it will be ready to welcome the thousands coming to town for the Democratic National Convention in July. Saligman’s art career received its first major boost when she was invited to lend her skills to a work in progress by the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network, which has since morphed into the large-scale public-art nonprofit Mural Arts Program (muralarts.org). “The experience offered me three things I absolutely love: painting on a large scale, being outside, and working with people,” she says. Since then, she has designed dozens of murals around town, often in an allegorical style that incorporates classical elements. “Philadelphia has distinguished itself in the contemporary mural arts movement,” she adds, “and we have Mural Arts to thank for that.” Saligman continues to challenge herself. Last year she completed her largest work ever, the 42,000-square-foot The M.L. King Mural: We Will Not Be Satisfied Until... in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a richly hued tribute to an African-American neighborhood. Her delicately beautiful Knotted Grotto, an installation to honor Pope Francis’s historic visit to Philadelphia last fall, encouraged visitors (more than 100,000 in all) to write prayers on white cloth strips and then knot them onto an armature. Those ribbons—now sculpted, layered, and embedded in glass—will adorn the façade of a new Project HOME residence for the city’s homeless on North Broad Street. Saligman will attend not only the Democratic National Convention but also the Republican confab in Cleveland to gather materials for an exhibition at Moore College of Art & Design, which will present her with this year’s Visionary Woman Award. The artist hasn’t yet nailed down the exhibit’s specifics, but there’s no doubt that once again Saligman will leave her mark on our city. “I’m very proud of my body of work,” she says. “It’s a great feeling when I drive by one and can say, ‘I did that!’” megsaligman.com

WASHINGTON, DC

RONALD B E VE RLY THE HOWARD UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR IS DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF PHOTOGRAPHERS BY LOOKING TO THE ART FORM’S PAST IN ORDER

When it comes to photographic techniques, Ronald Beverly, the head of the photography department at Howard University in Washington, DC, is a film purist— except when he isn’t. He grounds his own art—and insists that his students ground theirs—in an understanding of traditional practices, darkroom and all, even if 90 percent of the work he is shooting right now is digital. “I’m always accustomed to the complete loop from beginning to end, from image capture to presentation,” Beverly says. Consider Nature’s Avatar, a kaleidoscopic series of digital giclées (printed on canvas) that look like something Google’s DeepDream program might generate. They scan plainly as landscapes and vaguely as natural: rectilinear mandalas that emphasize form, pattern, and fractal geometry. Obviously, these are digital transformations. But Beverly’s black-and-white silver gelatin landscape prints are no less sharp and craggy. Still, the 56-year-old artist is clear with his students that he prizes large-format film photography over digital. “It’s about craftsmanship first, and your meaning and message later,” he says. (Or as he likes to describe the digital-versus-film divide, “The microwave is quicker, but the food doesn’t taste as good.”) In the end, his overarching theme remains the same. “My goal,” says Beverly, “is to bring to light what we can’t see.” Ronald Beverly’s work will be on display at the MGM National Harbor when it opens this fall. 7100 Oxon Hill Road, Oxon Hill, 844-346-4664; mgmnationalharbor.com. boxlightstudios.prosite.com

LISA SCH U LTE THE NEON ARTIST IS TAKING A POPCULTURE MEDIUM AND BENDING IT INTO SOMETHING ENTIRELY UNEXPECTED.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY BODE HELM

BY KARI MOLVAR

Lisa Schulte’s years of experience have taught her to “see” in light: “You just have to keep doing it... Then you have the natural feel to shape things within you,” says the neon artist, shown here with Untitled Wood Series #1 (2014). COVER, AT RIGHT: All Your Life You Were Only Waiting for This Moment to Arise (2015).

After a freak accident in childhood, Lisa Schulte lost her sight for three months. It was a moment that shaped the rest of her life. “One doesn’t take sight for granted when you get it back,” says the 60-year-old artist. “It changed my sense of light.” Now, as a visual artist known for her neon work, she’s constantly surrounded by an electric glow. “Many artists take a stab at using neon, but only a few in the world are true experts,” says Blair Clarke of New York’s Voltz Clarke Gallery, which will mount an exhibition of Schulte’s pieces this summer. Schulte is largely self-taught and came to neon through the event production industry—she had her own signage shop in Los Angeles, Nights of Neon, in the mid-’80s. “I just reached a point where I had so much experience in how glass works that I started creating three-dimensional sculptures with neon,” she says. These days, Schulte muses that she can literally “see” in neon—and she’s helping the next generation see it too, by donating a work of art to be auctioned for the artsmentoring nonprofit Free Arts NYC (freeartsnyc.org). “You just have to keep doing it, doing it, doing it,” she says of her work. “Then you have the natural feel to shape things within you.” “Summer Selections,” an exhibition featuring Schulte’s work, runs July 1–August 31 at Voltz Clarke Gallery, 141 E. 62nd St., Second Fl., 212933-0291; voltzclarke.com

MICHAE L DWECK THE SURFINSPIRED PHOTOGRAPHER RELEASES A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW EDITION OF HIS BELOVED BEACHCENTRIC TOME. BY KARI MOLVAR

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MICHAEL DWECK (BEACH SHOTS); JUPITER JONES (DWECK)

When photographer Michael Dweck, 58, published The End: Montauk, N.Y., in 2004, an homage to the Hamptons’ surfing culture and sun-streaked landscape, the initial print run of 5,000 copies sold out in less than three weeks. Collectors will have another chance to grab the book this summer, though: In July, Dweck will publish 300 copies of a new edition of The End. The $3,000 clothbound volume includes 85 previously unpublished images, as well as an essay by photographer (and Montauk resident) Peter Beard and an 11-by-14-inch gelatin silver print (Surf’s Up, Adriana, or Lilla), numbered and signed. To celebrate its release and preserve the shorelines depicted in the pages, a portion of the proceeds of the book will go toward the Surfrider Foundation (surfrider.org), Oceana (oceana.org), and Splash (splash.org), which help maintain US waterways and beaches. For Dweck, the new edition is also a chance to expand on the book’s original narrative—the spellbinding allure of summer and surfing, and a way of life that’s fading away. “The work was my way of freezing Montauk from when I was a kid,” says Dweck, who grew up in Nassau County, Long Island, and began visiting the seaside community in the ’70s. “It was about a feeling—of what it’s like to be free, young, and 19 again.” The End: Montauk, N.Y.

BILLY AL BENGSTON

Nicknamed “Rainbow” in high school for his multicolored outfits (“I’d do a complete wardrobe change at lunch,” he says), Billy Al Bengston, photographed in his Venice studio in front of Milwaukee Monster (2016, FAR LEFT) and Ascot (2016), has been a lively fixture on the LA arts scene for nearly 60 years. COVER, BOTTOM LEFT: Riders of Destiny (1966).

AN L.A. LEGEND ARTS ON. BY MICHAEL HERREN In the pantheon of postwar California Cool artists— adventurers with names such as Ruscha, Price, Bell, Altoon, Irwin, and Graham—Billy Al Bengston is the trickster god. He’s one thing; he’s its other—an entertaining introvert who’s naturally the life of any party but who’s also a natural in his studio, alone, a party of one. A self-proclaimed pistonhead who has surfed toes-on-the-nose and raced motorcycles for cash and glory—and who then translated this love of speedy sleekness and slick sheen into motifs and finishes in his paintings. Born in Dodge City, Kansas, at the height of the Depression, Bengston and his family settled in LA in the late 1940s, just in time for high school, where he developed a passion for ceramics before switching to painting. He then proceeded to have five solo shows at the famed Ferus Gallery on North La Cienega Boulevard between 1958 and 1963, and at age 82 he continues to strive to paint a pretty picture—noting, however, that his idea of a pretty picture might not be yours. “Painting, it’s like self-flagellation,” he says. “You sort of like it, and hope other people like what you did while you were beating yourself.” Bengston is donating a hand-colored monoprint, Untitled (1972), which will be auctioned on July 16 at Summer on Seventh, the annual LA fundraisercum-arts happening benefiting Inner-City Arts (innercityarts.org), a nonprofit that provides underserved youth in Los Angeles with access to free arts education. Bengston’s work is featured in “Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection,” which runs April 27, 2016 through February 12, 2017, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, 99 Gansevoort St., New York, 212-570-3600; whitney.org. billyalbengston.com

DICK CARTE R THE COLORADO ARTIST EXPLORES THE UNIVERSEONE BRUSHSTROKE AT A TIME. BY CHRISTINE BENEDETTI

PHOTOGRAPHY BY SHAWN O’CONNOR (CARTER); TONY PRIKRYL (MODERN MANDALA, YELLOW X MANDALA)

It’s been 40 years since artist Richard Carter was Herbert Bayer’s assistant in Aspen, but the Bauhaus architect and artist’s influence is clearly present in Carter’s newest series of works. “It’s in my blood,” he says of the modernist movement known for bold lines, stark shapes, and bright colors. Titled “Mandalas Considered,” Carter’s new exhibition is the fruit of two years of painting and drawing. “I got interested in the mandala, not in the spiritual way but in a formal way, the structure of it,” he says about the geometric pattern used to represent the universe in many Eastern cultures. A cofounder of the Aspen Art Museum, Carter, 70, is deeply rooted in the Aspen Valley’s arts scene, serving on the board of the Art Base, the nonprofit that will be the beneficiary of an Aspen Peak summer fundraiser where one of his pieces will be auctioned off. During a residency at Anderson Ranch Arts Center last summer, he was inspired by Takashi Nakazato’s studio and created three mandala series with the Japanese symbol for a cherry blossom at their center. “They’ve evolved over different ways in the past two years,” he says, “but they all have some reference to scientific notation.” The new series visibly transitions from complex, physics-centered pieces to modern, simplified, more abstract works. The same could be said of Carter himself. “Mandalas Considered” runs June 3–25 at The Launchpad in Carbondale, 76 S. Fourth St., 970-9631680; launchpadcarbondale.com. “Drawings” runs June 10–July 1 at the Art Base in Basalt, 99 Midland Spur, 970-927-4123; theartbase.org. richardcarterart.com

SUSH MACHIDA WITH HIS UNAPOLOGETIC EAST MEETSWEST FUN FUSION STYLE, THIS POP MURALIST HAS LEFT A STRONG IMPRINT ON THE CITY. BY KRISTEN PETERSON

PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF THE ARTIST

Japanese-born painter Sush Machida, 43, has made a distinctive mark on the city of Las Vegas with his brilliantly colorful Pop murals. His work includes the large-scale mural he painted with Tim Bavington on Downtown’s Emergency Arts building and 2,000 square feet of peaceful and happy murals for Hope Corridor at Clark County’s Child Haven, which he supports for its work in protecting children from abuse. Machida’s artistic lexicon is vast: Waves and clouds create minimalist forms that bring Japanese woodcut traditions solidly into the now; brightly hued tigers represent Japanese symbols of luck; and other works teem with colorful fish, air fresheners, perfume bottles, and cigarette packs. The Pop muralist is making his mark on Las Vegas in other ways, too: Machida is donating a work of art through Vegas’s Art of the City project to assist in the massive fundraising effort to build The Modern (the modernlv.org), a contemporary art museum planned for Downtown’s burgeoning arts neighborhood. Of Machida’s work, renowned art critic David Hickey says, “It’s always kind of crazy, but it’s never too much, never more than you want. It’s just right—exquisite and graceful. It lives on the surface.” Machida’s work appears in “Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada” at the Nevada Museum of Art, August 5– October 23; nevadaart.org. sushmachida.com

Sush Machida’s exuberant style has earned him fans like Los Angeles Times art critic David Pagel, who writes, “Pop art never looked more scorchingly gorgeous or wickedly Zen.” COVER, AT LEFT: Uneri-zu (2016).

NICK CAVE THE PERFORMANCE ARTIST AND

SOUNDSUIT INVENTOR TACKLES TOUGH SOCIAL ISSUES WITH HIS STUNNING FOUNDOBJECT CREATIONS.

A must-have for any contemporary art museum or top-level collector, Nick Cave’s instantly recognizable soundsuits—exuberant, brightly colored wearable sculptures adorned with everything from buttons and hair to toys and other found objects— have made the 57-year-old professor in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s fashion design department one of the most sought-after artists in the world. Although festive in spirit, the multimedia creations are rooted in a dark moment: the 1991 police beating of Rodney King after a high-speed car chase in Los Angeles. Soon thereafter, Cave found himself gathering twigs and constructing a kind of protective garment-sculpture that served as a prototype for what he later termed soundsuits. He has made more than 500 of them since. Cave, who grew up in rural Missouri and began his studies at the Kansas City (Missouri) Art Institute, is part of a growing trend of community engagement in which an artist becomes what he calls a “cultural change agent.” Whether it’s with his soundsuits, sculptures, installations, or community projects, Cave seeks to transport people into a contemplative, healing, and transformative realm. “I’m creating this space,” he says, “that allows one to imagine.” “Nick Cave: Until” opens at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art on October 16. 1040 Mass MoCA Way, North Adams, MA, 413-662-2111; massmoca.org. nickcaveart.com

With its roots in issues like gun violence and racial inequity, Nick Cave’s colorful art ultimately seeks to transport viewers into a realm that allows for healing and transformation. COVER, AT LEFT: Soundsuit (2015).

PETE R TU NNE Y WITH HIS GIANT POLAROIDS COLLECTION, THE ARTIST, PHILANTHROPIST, AND ENTREPRENEUR IS CAPTURING MOMENTS AND CREATING TREASURE. BY JON WARECH

PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOHN REUTER (TUNNEY)

Peter Tunney is living in the present. His famed Grattitude, The Time is Always Now, and Enough is Possible paintings hang around the world. “The overarching theme is that I hate that we’re getting older, I hate that time is slipping by,” he says. “I really love being here.” Tunney’s obsession with time is what makes his latest project, Giant Polaroids, so interesting. It involves a large Polaroid camera—one of only five made, manufactured in the late ’70s and used by Andy Warhol and Chuck Close—that produces huge 20-by-24-inch photos. But film for the camera is running out. The 55-year-old artist takes pictures of “whatever comes into my mind that day” and has partnered with the estate of photographer Bert Stern to shoot Stern’s photos of Marilyn Monroe, the last taken before she died. “You’re like nose to nose with Marilyn Monroe telling you, ‘Come and get me, baby,’” he says of the process. Of course, long after all the film for the giant camera is gone, Tunney’s work will still be making its mark. As part of Ocean Drive’s Art of the City initiative, he has agreed to donate a work to benefit Artists for Peace and Justice (apjnow.org), a nonprofit that addresses issues of poverty around the world. “If we ran out [of film] tomorrow, then c’est la vie,” he says. “It would just make me treasure these pictures more, and would make me think I should have done more Marilyns.” Tunney’s studio is located at 220 NW 26th St., Miami, 646-245-7904; petertunney.com What Peter Tunney (ABOVE RIGHT, artdirecting Mr. Brainwash at a Giant Polaroids shoot) calls “stuff that I treasure”—from Cap’n Crunch boxes to bleached-out beer cans to a childhood Lassie book—has a way of becoming part of his art, which may explain how his paint-smudged jeans wound up in the piece Cailin Double Exposed in My Jeans (2015) on Ocean Drive’s cover (LEFT).

J E N NIFE R CHE NOWETH NO ONE UNDERSTANDS THE TEXAS CAPITAL’S PASSION FOR PLACE LIKE CHENOWETH, WHOSE XYZ ATLAS SHOWS WHERE AUSTINITES HAVE EXPERIENCED THEIR HIGHS AND LOWS. BY KATHY BLACKWELL

PHOTOGRAPHY BY JENNY SATHNGAM

Jennifer Chenoweth jokes that she feels like “a dinosaur” because she can use power tools and has classical training, but she is learning the computer graphics program Rhino in order to do 3-D design. “Digital prints help art be more affordable for more people,” she notes. Her XYZ Atlas project also includes small sculptures (TOP) based on the flowerlike color wheel of emotions that’s also at the heart of The Hedonic Map of Austin (2015; ON COVER, RIGHT).

This spring, artist Jennifer Chenoweth unveiled the final installment in her collaborative multimedia project XYZ Atlas, which employs art, technology, and psychology to illustrate how Austinites feel about places around their city. Over a three-year period, 500 people responded to her surveys, which asked questions like “Where did you fall in love?” and “Where did you have your worst night?” Inspired by Robert Plutchik’s color wheel of emotions (lemon yellow for joy, dark green for terror, and so on) and using geospatial information systems technology, Chenoweth created The Hedonic Map of Austin, which depicts where residents have felt their highs and lows. The happiest point is a lemon-yellow peak right over Barton Springs and Zilker Park, the urban oasis in this outdoors-obsessed city. “I thought people would just answer with two-word locations, but they told these rich stories,” says Chenoweth, 47, who was also surprised by how the surveys tracked Austin’s rapid growth. She has expanded XYZ Atlas to include temporary art installations, a catalog, and a large solar-powered steel sculpture of a lotus flower called Dance of the Cosmos. Chenoweth is now applying for grants to help her fund the digital platform of XYZ Atlas so she can take it to other cities. “The possibilities of art have completely changed through technology,” she says. Artwork from XYZ Atlas is on display through August at the Beverly S.

BY LISA PIERPONT

A fruit sticker, a plastic twist tie, a price tag: Rachel Perry collects, cherishes, and creates world-class art out of them—thousands and thousands of them. The current artist-in-residence at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Perry, 54, has spent her career exploring how our identity is defined by modern consumer culture. She’s a collector first, hand-peeling labels and meticulously preserving them on wax paper; then, she is a sculptor, photographer, performance artist, and painter. Her mission: “What I am doing here is trying to comment on the daily life of one small life on this planet as it may relate to art, and that is all.” Born in Tokyo, Perry earned a BA from Connecticut College and a diploma and fifth-year certificate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She was honored with the Catherine Boettcher Fellowship at the MacDowell Colony and is a two-time winner of the Massachusetts Cultural Council Award for Excellence in Drawing and Sculpture. Her work is displayed in numerous museums and private collections around the world. Her solo show, “What Do You Really Want?,” is currently on view at—literally on the outside wall of—the Gardner Museum. “Rachel Perry: What Do You Really Want?” runs through June at the Gardner Museum, New Wing Façade, 25 Evans Way, 617-566-1401; gardnermuseum.org. Perry’s work will also be featured at “First Light: A Decade of Collecting at the ICA,” which runs August 17, 2016 through January 16, 2017, at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 25 Harbor Shore Dr., 617-478-3100; icaboston.org. rachelperrystudio.com

Rachel Perry painstakingly sculpts tin foil into letters. Language’s inability to really communicate “what we humans are trying to describe” is an ongoing fascination for the artist.

Ask someone to name their favorite place to get Italian gelato, organic pedicures, or custom window treatments and you will likely get three or four suggestions rather than just one glowing recommendation. We understand the struggle to play favorites and take a similar approach in compiling our annual Best of Style feature, offering a handful of buzzy winners that span not just categories but neighborhoods from Center City to the Main Line. As always, seven Philly notables give us their personal “bests” and—no surprise—they had a tough time narrowing down their top restaurants, locally owned boutiques, and secret city finds.

LEADING THE WAY All eyes are on Philadelphia for the DNC—and on Mayor Jim Kenney (@phillymayor). Here, 12 things you might not know about Philly’s 99th mayor, shown here in a portrait shot at City Hall. What makes Philly great: The people. We’re a city of very diverse neighborhoods but no matter where you go you’re going to find people that make a positive, memorable impression. Famous Philadelphian you’d most like to have dinner with: Octavius Catto is Philly’s unsung civil rights hero. There’s so much I’d like to learn about his work that’s just not in the history books. Favorite restaurant: Bomb-Bomb Tavern, Relish, Vietnam. Top summer event: DNC. Where I go for inspiration: Pre-K. Seeing kids with so much potential and knowing we can help them capitalize on that is very energizing. Childhood memories: Playing on firetrucks. We were so proud of the fact that my dad was a Philly firefighter. Biggest change you

want to see in Philly: Poverty rate has to go down. We as a city can’t thrive in the long-term if over a quarter of our population is living in poverty and half is living on $50,000 or less. Philly on Film: Philadelphia. What the DNC means for the city: It means we’ll make national history, yet again. I feel incredibly honored to host the Convention where we’ll nominate the first female president. Tourist Tips: Hit East Passyunk. It’s not a classic tourist stop, so you’ll get to interact with more locals. Four years from now, Philly will… be a city where there’s opportunity in every zip code. I’m realistic about how much we can change in four years but hope that no matter where you live, there’s a real path for you to rise above the circumstances into which you were born. Then I’ll feel like we accomplished what we were elected to do. What people can expect from this year’s rebooted Fourth of July party: TSOP!


“I feel IncredIbly honored to host the conventIon where we’ll nomInate the fIrst female presIdent.”

NO RESERVATIONS High Street Hospitality’s Ellen Yin (@highstreet philly), here at Fork, dishes on the Barnes, the beauty of 30th Street, and her not-sobasic black uniform. Philly is so...: Green! The one thing I love about Philly is being able to ride a bike or walk anywhere in Center City. Philly tradition: I co-chair the annual fundraiser for Delaware River Waterfront Corporation each summer. Famous Philadelphian you most want to have dinner with: As a restaurateur, I’m lucky in that I

get to “have dinner” with a lot of Philadelphians— many who are famous. And although he isn’t famous, the Philadelphian I most want to have dinner with is my boyfriend, Wayne. Philly on film: The Art of the Steal, the documentary that details the controversy surrounding the Barnes Foundation’s move to the Parkway, fascinates me. Favorite city landmark: 30th Street Station. Now with a restaurant in New York, I travel frequently. I love coming home, ascending the stairs, and seeing the gorgeous

candles, and other gifts perfect to complete your outdoor retreat

contemporary paintings and pieces from major artists and local favorites alike.

concourse. The future of Philly’s food scene: Amazing, but I hope that more people want to join the industry and understand what’s involved. Favorite local boutiques: Since I’m around food I tend to stick to a basic black uniform from shops like Nicole Miller and Theory. Favorite restaurant (aside from your own!): I try to support the chef community as much as I can. My most frequented spot is Pho Saigon for the Bun Bo Hue with tendon. And I love Mr. Martino’s Trattoria.

Favorite restaurant: Can’t say just one: Del Frisco’s, Sbraga, Capital Grille, and R2L. Local athlete: Malcolm Jenkins is such a class act and is doing great things for local youth through The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation. Famous Philadelphian you most want to have dinner with: Ben Franklin.

Local landmark: City Hall was the tallest habitable building in the world from 1894 -1908 and, with 700 rooms, is still one of the largest

municipal buildings in the world. Impressive. Favorite Philadelphia movie: Trading Places. My office is located in the Duke and Duke building! What makes Philly great: I have traveled and lived in many cities in the US, Europe, South America, and Israel, and none of the places match the spirit, flamboyance, and confidence of the people that you meet here. Why BBBS is important to the city: We have been working in the Greater Philadelphia community for over 100 years and have served over 200,000 kids in that time. I would like to think that we played a role in the health and vitality of this great city and will continue to do so.

Philly on film: Rocky movies, of course. Creed, the most recent in the series, might be my favorite. Favorite restaurant: A short list of my favorites is Vetri, Double Knot, Vernick, Zahav, and Barclay Prime. City esapes: I love riding my bike along the Schuylkill River

Trail. It’s also a great example of what can happen when a number of organizations work together. Summer in the city: The DNC and Guns N’ Roses at the Linc in July. And training camp because that means the season is near. Great (Eagles) expectations: I’ve really been impressed with the direction our team is going. We have some great coaches on staff. As always, our focus going into the season is to compete for a division title. Why MTWB is important to the city: We believe outdoor

play is an essential component of child development and community engagement. Through MTWB, we work with city and community partners to support projects through funding and partnership development and help drive the process forward. What’s ahead in 2016: We are wrapping up the first phase of construction on the Smith Playground Recreation Center in South Philly and will move ahead with Phase 2 this fall. And our 2017 park project is already confirmed.

HAUTE MOMMA From play dates to pool parties, lawyer and TV personality Erin Elmore (@erinelmore), sitting pretty in her Center City home, takes it all in stride (sans stilettos). What I love about Philly: Who needs Facebook when you live in Philly? It’s the perfect size for you to walk out the door, run into six friends, and have some impromptu fun. Famous Philadelphian you’d most like to have dinner with: Ed Snider. He and my husband, Craig Spitzer, shared a long friendship, and his grandson, Garrett, is a dear friend. I would have wanted to sit with him at Barclay Prime and listen to his stories. Kid-friendly finds: Primp and Play! My son, Royce, takes an art class while I get a mani-pedi. I’m an attorney, and I deem that a win for both parties. Local landmark: Someone once told me that the Barnes

Foundation is the most civilized place to see art in the US. I’m proud to live in a city with art that can only be matched by the Louvre. Secrets from the set: QVC is on air, live 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The place never sleeps, so neither do I. I often work overnights. Best boutique: Lapstone and Hammer for rare sneakers. Now that I am a mom, I think it looks ridiculous to push a stroller in stilettos. And I still get just as many compliments. Summer in the city: The Lombard Swim Club— heavy on the rules, but bigger on the fun. The lifeguarded baby pool and BYOB policy make the 10-year wait list worthwhile.

Christine and Nick Kondra met at Nantucket’s famed Straight Wharf Restaurant, but after calling New England home for years, Christine, a Berwyn native, longed to return to the Main Line.

And in the spirit of bringing the very best to the Main Line, Cornerstone features a bimonthly series hosted by bigname chefs from places like Napa and their

beloved Nantucket. Here, the Kondras talk about the concept, choosing cheeses, and what it’s like sharing not one but two kitchens. What inspired you to open Cornerstone? Nick Kondra: After four seasons on Nantucket and winters in the New England area, we wanted to move near family, and soon realized we wanted to open a restaurant on

the Main Line. We knew there was a market out here for a restaurant that would jive with our style of food. It was just going to be a matter of when, not if. I was working at Marc Vetri’s Amis when we got a call that this space might be available. We jumped at the chance. Christine Kondra: I would do pairing parties on Nantucket with wine and cheese and oysters.

And that’s really where the organic genesis of Cornerstone came from. We’re focusing on really good seasonal ingredients that allow the food to speak for itself. We bring the best of the best in from the country, if not internationally, and we’re held accountable every day for providing the best there is. Is cheese pairing a big part of the îî

How is the nighttime experience different than the day? NK: When people who normally come in during the day come in at night they’re totally blown away. It’s a very different vibe. It goes from being fun and casual to very intimate and candlelit. Everything’s romantic, and either Sinatra or the Temptations are playing in the background. We bring in high-top tables covered

with white tablecloths, candles, flowers. The whole bit. You’ve worked together in the past, but this is the first time you’ve owned something together. How’s that going? NK: It’s tough enough opening a restaurant, but when it’s husband and wife together it has its own set of challenges. But anything that’s happened this year has only strengthened our relationship. We calm each other down. CK: We’ve worked beside each other for a number of years, but to have the first brick and mortar has been really great. The first six months is pretty tough for anyone opening a restaurant together, let alone if you’re married. I couldn’t do this without Nick, though. People always ask us who is a better chef, and I say that we’re different chefs. We complement each other’s strengths, which makes us better in the long run. 1 West Ave., Wayne, 610-688-1888; cornerstonewayne.com

Cornerstone experience? CK: You have to see the bottles of wine that are coming through here. These are incredibly expensive bottles coming from private cellars. The moment I see the bottle I can start pairing cheeses just for that wine. I talk to the guests about the stories behind the cheeses. People liked to joke around and say everything tastes so much better with the story behind it. And then I always tell them that if there weren’t a story I wouldn’t bring the cheese in.

On the heels of the $3.5 billion project to create Schuylkill Yards, a 14-acre commercial and residential revitalization of West Philadelphia, a second plan to revolutionize the 30th Street Station is in the works—with an estimated completion date even further out than the former’s lengthy 20-year span. The Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan (philly district30.com) is projected to take more than three decades in construction to boost station capacity and expand open space for the city as part of a joint effort between Amtrak, Drexel University, Brandywine Realty Trust, and SEPTA. Features of the plan include reconnecting the Amtrak station with the 30th Street subway station and building a new intercity bus terminal with a pedestrian bridge that connects the train to the station. Also in the works is a blend of commercial, residential, and recreational space to make the station a more dynamic destination for the thousands of passengers that pass through each day. Not far from 30th Street Station, University City’s newest skyrise, 3737 Chestnut (3737chestnut .com), is adding to the neighborhood’s fast-growing cachet. All 276 luxury apartment units in the 26-story building offer îî

Postgreen Homes partnered with nonprofit New Kensington Community Development Corporation to deliver sustainable communities to its residents in a mixed-income setting. The townhomes range from 1,750 to 2,150 square feet and feature green roofs. Courtney Ludeman, CFO/Vice President of Postgreen Homes, says the Awesometown properties are twice as energy efficient as a normal home. Each unit is designed in a loft-style with a customizable floor plan and over 250 finish options. Awesometown, which is in its second phase of development, is expected to be completed by the end of summer.

Hidden behind the walls of Kensington’s Arts and Industry Building, the Design Collaborative is a 2,000-square-foot treasure trove of some of the area’s most meticulously curated artwork, furniture, rugs, paintings, and anything else that goes into decorating one’s home. The brainchild of Meg Rodgers of Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design —who owns the warehouse and just put the finishing touches on the Hyatt at The Bellevue’s recent multimilliondollar renovation—the Design Collaborative is comprised of some of the area’s most accomplished designers and artisans, including Fisher Grey, Moderne Gallery, John Pomp Studios, Calderwood Gallery, Liao Collection,

Warren Muller, and Kevin O’Brien Studio. “I was trying to find the really key anchor dealers in Philadelphia,” says Rodgers. “People who really know their stuff and together we could offer an incredible mix.” Even Rodgers can’t help coveting the one-of-a-kind accents here: She has her eye on a ’70s string art piece from Moderne, leather swivel chairs from Fisher Grey, and a sepia-toned Asian screen adorned with an elephant, horse, and rabbit. “You can find anything from Asian to folk art to modern—we want to represent everything,” says Rodgers. “There’s so much amazing quality stuff in Philadelphia that people simply don’t realize.” Design Collaborative, 215-558-5863

“We really do draw endless inspiration from Italy,” says Stefano Gabbana, half of the forever trendsetting duo behind Dolce & Gabbana, which, for the first time, has partnered with luxe Italian appliance brand Smeg on a limited-edition collection of hand-painted refrigerators. “Both Domenico [Dolce] and I love our roots and where we come from… it’s almost as if we are giving back to Italy everything we feel it has given to us.” Each of the 100 Fab 28 Smeg refrigerators is unique, handpainted, and signed by a Sicilian artist—including mother-daughter duo Adriana Zambonelli and Tiziana Nicosia; craftsmen Biagio Castilletti and Damiano Rotella; and brothers Antonio and Giuseppe Bevilacqua, both ceramics artists—and features iconic Sicilian images such as lemons, cart wheels, and the trinacria, the head of Medusa surrounded by three bent, running legs. “Vibrant colors, references to the local culture—it’s everything that we love and that reminds us of Italy,” says Domenico Dolce of the refrigerators, which retail for €30,000 (approximately $34,000). “Much of our work is all about the details. That’s something that’s always present and part of our brand DNA— this project is no exception.” smeg.com

Philadelphia—America’s Garden Capital——offers more public gardens than anywhere on the continent, many with deep roots in the city’s history. Bartram’s Garden (bartrams garden.org) is one shining example. John Bartram, America’s first botanist, built his house on the land in 1731; today the 45-acre destination is considered the oldest botanical garden in the US. “We’ve just completed a $2.7 million renovation of the John Bartram House,” says Bartram’s Executive Director Maitreyi Roy, noting a new cedar-shake roof and a restoration of the conservatory. This summer, the team starts work on a walking trail connecting the Ann Bartram Carr Garden to Center City and South Philadelphia. On Friday nights, nature lovers are invited to picnic on

the 47-acre Chanticleer (chanticleergarden.org), in Wayne. The country home-turned-public garden features seasonal blooms, shady greenery, and even agricultural crops. Germantown’s Wyck House (wyck.org) sits on 2.5 acres and and is widely recognized as the oldest rose garden in its original plan in America—several of the garden’s varietals would be extinct if they hadn’t survived here. From 1690 to 1973 this National Historic Landmark, with more than 80 varieties of roses, was home to nine generations of a Quaker family. “Visitors love the history and the setting that evokes the pleasures of family gatherings,” says Rocky Query, cochair of the Wyck Association. Gather away (but leave the rosebuds)!

MAP QUEST

Like many successful businesses, Jay Susanin’s map collection started almost by accident: A Main Line native who has owned custom framing shop and design studio Palladio since 2001, Susanin was invited to stay with close friends at their home in Naples, Florida, to provide the décor’s finishing touches. As a thankyou gift, Susanin found an old map of the city, then handsketched and digitized a version to look like an antique blueprint, which he then encased in a tortoiseshell frame. The map lingered in Palladio for a few days before shipping, and a customer asked if Susanin could create a similar map of Avalon for her shore house. That’s when the orders starting rolling in, and Bank & Surf was born. Just a few years later, the collection includes 200 maps of vacation stops along the eastern seaboard as well as a city series of European destinations. A variety of punchy hues, monograms, dates, and pinpoints for favorite locales mean that no two maps look the same. This year B&S expands its collection to include complementary coastal artwork and other accents, but Susanin says that the maps are the cornerstone of the brand. “People get so excited when they see them,” he says. “It’s like bringing paradise home with you.” bankandsurf.com

CELEBRATED DESIGNER STEPHEN BUR S FASHIONS THE SEASON’S MOST EXQUISITE ARMCHAIR.

The design of Stephen Burks’s Asian Traveler hooded armchair ($3,625) was inspired by his travels in Indonesia with Roche Bobois creative director Nicolas Roche.

It’s fitting that venerated French furniture maison Roche Bobois selected Stephen Burks to develop the nomadic Traveler collection for the company’s 40th anniversary in 2014. The famed designer’s bio reads “traveler and designer,” and Burks has long been passionate about fostering design collaborations with artisans from around the

world. Inspired by both Europe and America, the collection became instantly iconic. Now the partnership continues with a new series of outdoor items dubbed Asian Traveler. The centerpiece? A gorgeous, swooping hooded armchair featuring woven, leather-textured polyurethane cord in vibrant orange and yellow and

inspired by the rich Indonesian craftsmanship encountered by Burks and Roche Bobois creative director Nicolas Roche in Asia. It’s an ideal outdoor piece for the oncoming alfresco season, says Burks, who received the 2015 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for product design. “It has a very light, almost tropical appeal without

sacrificing Roche Bobois’s dedication to comfort.” Furthermore, he says, it fits his own globally aware aesthetic. “[I try to design] products that tell a story and connect to a lifestyle well lived with social awareness and style. The Traveler collection is a great example.” Roche Bobois, 311 Arch St., 215-922-2900; roche-bobois.com

It was the view that immediately won over the owner of a new 3,000-square-foot condo on the 43rd floor of The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton. With City Hall Tower looming just beyond and busy Dilworth Plaza below, this “right-sizing” buyer knew that his grand vision for a home that evoked luxe-but-comfy French rococo would complement his lofty vantage point in the heart of Center City.

from top: The tricked-out kitchen is one of the family’s favorite rooms in the house; the column-lined entryway, capped off by a painted trompe l’oeil dome, shows off the owner’s climatecontrolled wine room.

A movable wall separates the master suite and the dining room but both luxe living spaces enjoy priceless views of William Penn atop City Hall.

To execute the coffered ceilings, built-in woodwork, and stunning finishes necessary for creating the Old World classicism he was after, the owner turned to master cabinetmaker David Ramsay of Moorestown, New Jersey, with whom he’d worked on several other homes, and Philadelphia-based architects Kass & Associates. “He brought a lot of images from magazines, and even had a rough layout,” says Spence Kass, principal. “He wanted a clear division between public and private spaces because he entertains a lot, and he was particularly interested in making the best use of every nook and cranny.” The homeowners had a clear vision of the home they wanted, says Gary W. Greenip, vice president of sales and marketing for AGC Partners, which oversees the Residences. “They blended their love of art, music, and convenience to create the perfect living space for themselves with traditional styling,” he says. “It’s truly a one-of-akind home.” The results are ingenious.

countertops, he tucked two shelves behind a panel of the curving bar to hide small appliances. For those times when he doesn’t feel like cooking, though, the owner says, “The Capital Grille has become my new dining room.” If he’s in an especially leisurely mood, he simply calls a concierge from his “bat phone”—part of the apartment’s heady array of technological innovations—to request delivery of breakfast and a newspaper; the staff of nearly 30 provides 24-hour assistance. Residents enjoy other five-star perks of the Ritz-Carlton, which recently underwent a $24 million renovation, including an upgraded spa, reimagined lobby, and a Latin-inflected restaurant from chef Richard Sandoval. Meanwhile, the second floor of the Residences is outfitted with a 7,000-square-foot fitness center and a wellappointed party space that includes a luxurious lounge, screening room, and outdoor terrace. “Everything I need,” says the owner, “is always a few steps away.” For more information, visit philadelphia residences.com.

advantage of the view, the designers installed a series of accordion-style doors that unfold to create a paneled gallery wall. Another clever touch shows up in a small corner carved out of the master bath. Draped in a honey onyx imported from South America, this indulgent room centers on a huge bath and what the owner dubs the “car wash,” an enormous steam shower fitted with 10 controls. Also part of the master suite, a study neatly showcases a crescentshaped desk and a dramatically undulating bookshelf. Two other bedroom/bath suites spotlight the owner’s affinity for jazz and sports with memorabilia signed by everyone from Wynton Marsalis to Tiger Woods. A balcony suspended outside the living room brings the occupants and their lucky guests thisclose to Alexander Milne Calder’s iconic statue of William Penn. To hold the couple’s sparkling barware and audio/visual equipment, Ramsay installed cherry wood cabinetry along one entire wall of the living room.

Philadelphia’s many pop-up parks and gardens, spending time outdoors is a major part of our local culture—and has become even more appealing with the introduction of chic new all-weather furniture lines. “Outdoor furniture is appreciated so much more now than ever before,” says Jinous Kazemi of Old City’s Millésimé (millesime.us) and Ligne Roset (ligne-roset.com/us). “People want to enjoy the same level of comfort and luxury outdoors that they

No matter your taste, try to think about outdoor décor in the long term. “Go with a style that’s yours and not just a temporary trend,” says Pierre Berardo, general manager of Roche Bobois (roche-bobois.com/ en-us). Just like their indoor counterparts, outdoor furnishings should reflect your taste and lifestyle. Berardo suggests bringing your home’s floor plan to the store to make sure that everything fits, taking photos of the inside of your home to match the same feel, and being vocal about your needs. New materials mean that now a piece of furniture is not

something you keep for a year. “You keep it for 10 or 15 years,” he says. “It’s important to make sure that you have confidence in style and quality.” light bright

Barbara King’s top choice for chic outdoor decorating may surprise you. “Buy a rug or mat to ground the space and tie it all together,” says the president of Valley Forge Flowers (valleyforge flowers.com), the Main Line’s main stop for bold floral displays, rustic home décor, seasonal accents, and more for over 40 years. At The Barn, a still newish retail experience that focuses entirely on outdoor living and sits adjacent to VFF’s main store, discerning green thumbs can scoop up lanterns, pillows, and gardening tools in addition to King’s favorite patio rugs. Another often-

overlooked design aspect is lighting, according to King. “Fire tables, candles, and lighting on strings create magical outdoor areas,” she says. Interior designer Barbara Balongue (balongue.com), who worked alongside King in creating the 7,000-squarefoot Barn, adds that lighting solutions should figure just as heavily into the space as whimsical accent pieces. “Solar shades, awnings, drapery enclosures, and screens can extend the usability of outdoor spaces and allow them to be used in inclement weather and for longer seasons,” says

Balongue. “Ambient lighting can be tied into these types of systems to highlight the décor and to create an environment that allows for relaxation regardless of the time of day.” No matter what your outdoor décor goals are, King says that creating a dynamic setting can be the difference between going out or staying home. “People have such busy schedules so it is a treat to stay at home with friends and family, talking across a fire or sipping wine on a comfy sofa under the stars,” says King.

Golden Rules From Faux glows to Fitness trends, it’s not too late to get your best beach bod ever with a little help From philly’s top beauty brains. By Michelle Mass

(Good) Skin iS in A good skincare regimen is perhaps most crucial in the summer months: The sunshine may feel good, but it can do irreversible damage to your skin. “When you’re outdoors, in addition to sunscreen, you should always wear a hat,” says Becky Fenlin of Center City’s About Face (about faceskincare.com). She adds, “A great hat will provide you full protection. Also, SkinMedica just launched a new product that features UVA and UVB protection

and protects you from infrared damage.” In addition to go-to salves, Dr. Louis P. Bucky (drbucky.com) suggests additional skin treatments, such as Intensif with radio frequency, to help achieve a glowing visage sans sun. Dr. Bucky recommends getting the noninvasive microneedling treatment three times over three months. “It helps to regenerate skin cell turnover and boost collagen so that your face looks rejuvenated, fuller, and smoother.” îî

A good skincAre regimen is perhAps most cruciAl in the summer months.

Hot child in the city: Tried-and-true skinsavers like sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat are still the best weapons against sun damage.

Go for the Gold

You don’t have to spend a day at the beach to actually look like you spent a day at the beach. Thanks to spray tanning you can arrive at the beach looking perfectly sunkissed. But there are some tricks to maintaining that faux glow once you get outdoors. It all starts before your appointment. “Shower, shave, and exfoliate 8 to 12 hours before your service,” says Adrienne Volpetti, owner of Baked (bakedtanning .com) in Queen Village, adding that the salon’s organic tan is one of their most popular. She also urges clients to stick with oil-free and paraben-free SPF while in the sun (Sun Bum is one of her favorite brands) plus showering with sulfate-free soap. “Sulfate-free soap will clean without stripping away your color, and always keep your skin

moisturized and hydrated after your spray. This will help the tan last longer and fade evenly.” Marilyn Kellmer of Center City’s SunMyst Tanning (mysunmyst.com) suggests clients try the complimentary warm hydrating treatment that is offered prior to every session here. “It really preps your skin and opens up your pores to achieve maximum results,” says Kellmer. No-StreSS treSSeS

“Hair, like skin, burns,” says Liz Stelmach, owner of Ardmore’s Salon ZIZA (salonziza.com). “This season, embrace the beachy hair look by using leave-in conditioners that attract and hold moisture to minimize any damage.” There are other hair-raising factors besides the sun to worry about, too. “Your hair will be tested by UV rays, pools, and salt water,” adds Will Bostock, îî

THE GUIDE SCENE

Tropicana’s multimedia Light and Sound Show electrifies the Shore skyline.

friends and collaborators Zac Brown Band (livenation.com) take the stage on September 1 with Drake White and The Big Fire. And then Florida Georgia Line closes the season out on September 3 with help from Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, and Kane Brown (livenation.com). Other can’t-miss shows: one of only three US concerts from Rod Stewart on August 27 (Trump Taj Mahal; trumptaj.com); Bob Dylan on July 10 followed by Tony Bennett on July 29 (Borgata) and Eli Young Band on September 1 (Tropicana).

And for some true Philly flavor, don’t miss Boyz II Men on July 23 (Tropicana). Those looking to relive the ’90s can look to Alice in Chains (July 23, Trump Taj Mahal) or 3 Doors Down, who debuted their signature song, “Kryptonite,” in 2000 (September 10, Caesars; caesars.com/ caesars-ac). Rounding things out are operatic pop sensation Josh Groban (August 5, Borgata) and mega-superstar Justin Bieber (July 15, Boardwalk Hall; boardwalkhall.com), and, because summer is a great time for laughs, Jerry Seinfeld (August 12 and 13, Borgata).
