WITH A CHERRY ON TOP THE SUBARU CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL MARKS 20 YEARS WITH EVEN MORE SUSHI, SINGING, AND SEASONAL BLOOMS. BY CONNIE CAPONE

Springtime in Japan means one thing: blooming cherry trees. Lots of them. The tradition of flower viewing (or hanami in Japanese) describes a celebratory period during the peak of the season when meadows and parks from Mount Fuji to Tokyo are

blanketed in a cloud of cotton-candy-colored buds. Stateside, Washington, DC, may get all the attention for its National Cherry Blossom Festival—more than a million visitors each year descend on the capital to ogle the thousands of trees in

bloom—but Philadelphia observes the same flowery rituals in exceptional fashion with the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival, April 1 through 9. Now in its 20th year, the event, hosted by the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia, is

a revelrous tribute to the music, art, food, and flowers of the island nation. The festival kicks off at the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden, now home to the only traditional hinoki cypress bark roof outside of Japan following last fall’s restoration

project. A sushi-making class, martial arts demonstrations, and the Cherry Blossom 10K are just some highlights of the packed calendar, which culminates with Sakura Sunday at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park. Tanoshii! subarucherryblossom.org

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

On set for this issue’s cover shoot with Rodney McLeod and Brent Celek at Tendenza. The Philadelphia Eagles players stuck around after to talk about music and their favorite Philly restaurants; with Fox 29’s Alissa Ingram and NBC10 anchor and reporter Rosemary Connors at the Academy of Music 160th Anniversary Concert and Ball.

thinking that football would be the topic of conversation. But just one week after the season ended and with three months of downtime looming (Celek was getting ready to escape to a remote cabin in the woods with his family and McLeod was looking forward to trying out a long list of restaurants saved on his phone), it was social media, not sports, that was on everyone’s minds. Both of them confessed they were taking a break from scrolling to be more present while off the field. Meanwhile, the team here at Philadelphia Style has been living and breathing social media in preparation for another busy year ahead. Our digital presence is the real-time complement to our glossy pages, giving readers a behind-the-scenes look at special events, openings, and Philadelphia Style parties. In

the months ahead we will be snapping, posting, and tagging more than ever to bring fans of the magazine to the front lines of what’s new and now in Philly--particularly the moments featured in the pages ahead, like the official opening of the gorgeous Museum of the American Revolution, the annual PHS Flower Show, the latest run of Broadway musical Cabaret, and a fashion-minded exhibit from Philly artist Leila Cartier. Follow along @phillystylezine for all the fashionable fun ahead in 2017.

Pop quiz, readers: Who was the first and last Philadelphia athlete to appear on the cover of Philadelphia Style? If you guessed Cole Hamels, you’re right. Dressed in a Hugo Boss navy suit and striped Psycho Bunny tie, the all-star pitcher appeared on our Spring 2009 edition shortly after winning the 2008 World Series (and walking in that epic parade down Broad Street) looking more like a model than a World Series MVP. This spring we gear up for another memorable Philly sports moment when the NFL Draft lands here April 27–29. You can be sure that cover stars and Philadelphia Eagles players Brent Celek and Rodney McLeod will play proud hosts to the thousands of aspiring players and veteran names slated to take part in the festivities. I brushed up on the latest sports news in preparation for our shoot,

LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

Philadelphia certainly knows how to throw a party. After the city-halting visit of Pope Francis in 2015 and the celebrity-filled 2016 Democratic National Convention, our beloved Philly will once again be the focal point of national media buzz as Chicago passes the torch to host the 82nd Annual NFL Draft April 27 to 29. The NFL Draft returns to the City of Brotherly Love for the first time since 1961 but the Draft has much deeper ties to Philly: The inaugural NFL Draft was held here in

1936 and Jay Berwanger became the first player drafted to an NFL team. Coincidentally (or not) it was the Eagles. More than 200,000 fans are expected to crowd the Benjamin Franklin Parkway during the threeday event. Landmarks from City Hall to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where Rocky famously tread, will be on full display. Fans will have an opportunity to meet current and former players and have photo opps with the Vince Lombardi Trophy. A

windfall of over $80 million is expected to impact local retail, restaurants, and hospitality industries with the homecoming of this prestigious American tradition. Philadelphia Style reacted accordingly, picking two of the most stylish Eagles players, Brent Celek and Rodney McLeod, to appear on our Spring cover in their off-the-field attire. All eyes will be on Philadelphia this April and we are proud to be there covering it all for you.

Contributing Editor Marni Prichard Manko’s been a part of the Philadelphia Style team since day one. When she’s not wrangling her tween daughters or killing it on the tennis court, she’s busy writing about the many reasons she loves living in the suburbs for the Main Line Style section, or covering fashion news for national outlets like WWD. She also penned this edition’s Style story on Kirna Zabête’s Beth Buccini. Behind the story: “I was surprised that Buccini spends more time at the Bryn Mawr location than at the New York store, which goes to show how much she has invested in Philly. And I like that she brings a mild sense of sartorial danger to the Main Line. Her clothes are just edgy enough to draw women out of their comfort zone.” Spring must-have: “I’d like to try out the bra-top trend, but I don’t think my fashion forwardness would be appreciated by the aforementioned tweens.”

SARAH JORDAN Sarah Jordan is a National Magazine Awardnominated writer who lives in Philadelphia. She has written extensively on the arts, fashion, and style for national and regional magazines and newspapers. She is the author of four books. For this issue of Philadelphia Style, Jordan interviewed artist Leila Cartier. Behind the story: “Leila showed me her collages in her sun-filled studio, located in a funky South Philly rehabbed factory. Then, sitting on her great-grandmother’s glamorous cream-colored sofa—among piles of fashion magazines— Cartier talked art, art history, about growing up in Kentucky, about grandparents emigrating from Syria and Lebanon, and her evolution as an artist.” On CartierÕs work: “She uses jewelry collages to address concepts of time—eternal and fleeting— and the seductive power of visual pleasure. Her work has a smart toughness and chicness embedded in each piece.”


BRIAN FREEDMAN Brian Freedman is a wine, spirits, food, and travel writer, beverage consultant, and event host and speaker. He writes a wine and spirits column at Forbes.com, and contributes to many other publications. He wrote this issue’s Scene story on Philly Wine Week. What readers can expect for Wine Week: “Wine lovers have the opportunity to taste an amazing range of wines they may not have in the past, and then gather with winemakers, importers, distributors, and sommeliers to share knowledge and lots of great wine.” Latest drink of choice: “There are too many to count! The great wines of Roero, in Piedmont; lots of Bordeaux Blanc; Pinot Noir from New Zealand and Grenache from Australia; new producers throughout California and Oregon; the remarkable wines of Greece; and plenty of gin and tonic, because it’s springtime!”

PHIL KRAMER Phil Kramer grew up in Philadelphia and Cinnaminson, New Jersey, and is a graduate of Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography. Throughout his career, he has photographed various celebrities and his work has appeared in numerous fashion, lifestyle, and bridal magazines. Kramer believes his success reflects not only his accomplishments and beliefs, but also his incredible love for life and photography. In this edition, Kramer shot the cover featuring Eagles players Brent Celek and Rodney McLeod. Tales from the set: “Photographing Brent and Rodney was a lot of fun, especially for me because I am a longtime Eagles fan. They’re phenomenal athletes, and meeting them up-close is a different experience than watching them make plays on TV.” Creative inspiration: “The idea was to make them look tough, and even though I captured some shots of them laughing and having fun, it was key to catch that serious moment for the cover.”

Home field advantage: The Philadelphia Eagles, who are this year’s host franchise for the NFL Draft, first brought the event prospect to the City of Philadelphia.

hiladelphia is known for many things: for being the birthplace of independence, its world-class hospitals and universities, an obsession with cheesesteaks, and a fascination with Rocky. But lately the city has also become known as a hot location for staging major events, many of them with global significance. In September 2015, Philadelphia hosted Pope Francis during his historic visit to the US for the World Meeting of Families. Last July, the Democratic National Convention brought a sea of blue and a swarm of celebrities to Philly to make history (again) when Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president. In another nod to history, the 82nd annual NFL Draft (draftin phl.com) hits the City of Brotherly Love for three pigskin-packed days, April 27–29, marking a full-circle moment for football in Philly: Last held here in 1961, the very first Draft took place in the city in 1936 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel. But if you think the town will be turned upside down the way it was for Popeadelphia and the DNC, think again, says Mayor Jim Kenney. It’s a brisk Friday in January inside the mayor’s office at City Hall, where his team, Julie Coker Graham, president and CEO of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Larry Needle, executive director of PHL Sports, have assembled for a roundtable interview about the Draft. “The pope’s visit was different because it was so restricted,” says Kenney. “The DNC was similar because it was also sitespecific and the delegates were bussed in and out [of the Wells Fargo Center]... and then we had people expressing their First Amendment

rights, which was terrific, too. This event will be better because it’s so open and positive; it’s not specific to a religious figure or a political party. This is an American thing.” And the mayor expects American football fans from all over to be out in full force in Philadelphia, topping the more than 200,000 who attended last year’s NFL Draft in Chicago. For the past two years, this free public event has been held in Chicago’s Grant Park, the first venue besides New York’s Radio City Music Hall to host the Draft in more than 50 years. Philly’s prime location along the East Coast corridor made it an attractive dot on the map for the NFL, beating out cities like Dallas, Los Angeles, and Chicago in a heated contest. “Philadelphia is midway between New York and Washington, DC, and Pittsburgh is a few hours away,” says Kenney. “There are a bunch of big NFL cities surrounding us.” Adds Needle, “We fully expect Redskins, Steelers, Jets, and Giants fans to make the trip here.” The mission of PHL Sports is to bring top sporting events—like the annual Army-Navy game, NCAA tournament games, and the 2012 NHL Winter Classic—to Philly. “Geography and accessibility were great selling points for the city,” says Needle. “The NFL was really excited about those two aspects.” So what sealed the deal between the NFL and PHL? It may have been Philly’s vibrant arts and culture scene, says ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, a former Eagles quarterback and part owner of the Philadelphia Soul, the 2016 Arena Football League World Champions. Jaworski, dialing in from a business trip in Florida for today’s roundtable, is the 2017 NFL Draft Host Committee Chair, along with co-chair

Ira Lubert. “When I met with Commissioner Roger Goodell to talk about Philadelphia as a host,” Jaworski says, “this combination of football and the arts was very impactful because the NFL is looking to expand their fan base.” Taking place along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this year’s event will include the first outdoor NFL Draft theater, located on the steps of the Art Museum. Just beyond will be the fan festival known as the NFL Draft Experience, where football lovers come face to face with NFL legends for free autographs, have their photo taken with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, and take part in gridiron clinics featuring agility runs and field-goal kicks. When the draft itself begins, jumbo screens along the parkway will let fans watch all the action on ESPN. This year’s host franchise, the Philadelphia Eagles, which sparked the drive to bring the NFL Draft to the city, will be involved in many of the events, while draft prospects will participate in a variety of community initiatives, says Needle. And, of course, there will be tons of private parties. During downtime, the city is banking on visitors exploring neighborhoods beyond the Parkway and patronizing local businesses. Coker Graham provides the estimated figures, which are impressive: $86 million in economic impact, roughly 40,000 room nights booked, and some 26,000 jobs supported. And the millions of people tuning in to watch—according to the NFL, an estimated 8.3 million viewers will catch Round 1 of the Draft—will see plenty of Philly’s iconic streets and structures. The value of that? Incalculable, says Kenney. Adds Coker Graham, “These marquee events amplify our message that Philadelphia is a great place to visit, reside, and do business.” Congressman Robert A. Brady, calling into the meeting from Harrisburg, goes even further: “I think that the Draft will be bigger than the DNC in terms of economic impact because convention visitors were tied to hotels and schedules. People will be wandering around and more engaged with local businesses.” But while economic impact and major media coverage are important, everyone agrees that the key message is that the NFL Draft is a free, familyfriendly experience for sports fans of all kinds. Imagine an Eagles tailgate at the Linc only on a much grander scale, says Kenney: “There are more women than ever going to games, and racial and ethnic diversity. You see all different Philly neighborhoods represented-—you can always tell by the music and food when you walk around the parking lot.” Adds Brady, “Everyone is green on game day.”

GRIDIRON GLORY

WITH PHILLY IN THE SPORTS SPOTLIGHT FOR THE NFL DRAFT, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BRENT CELEK AND RODNEY MCLEOD TALK FOOTBALL, FAMILY, AND FREE TIME. Run down the stats and Brent Celek and Rodney McLeod don’t seem to have much in common. Celek, who began his career as a fifth-round draft pick under Andy Reid, is a veteran Eagles tight end and has been a fixture on both the football and philanthropy scenes in Philly for more than a decade. McLeod, who grew up around the Washington, DC area, just wrapped up his first season with the Eagles as a safety after starting out as an undrafted free agent with the St. Louis Rams, and is still getting to know his adopted hometown. But they do have one big thing in common: They love the food in Philly, from out-of-the-way pizza joints to stalwart dining experiences like Buddakan. Fresh off a charity fashion show for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Celek and McLeod donned suits instead of uniforms to talk to Philadelphia Style. When did you both know that football was more than a hobby? Brent Celek: I always knew I loved football. I watched all the games growing up, especially Notre Dame. I liked the Eagles but the Pittsburgh Steelers were my favorite team because of Jerome Bettis. He’s my favorite player of all time. I started playing tight end as a freshman in high school. During the first game I caught a touchdown pass, and I knew that was the position I wanted to play. Rodney McLeod: My mom always made sure we did extracurricular activities, so I played football and basketball, and ran track growing up. I went to the Junior Olympics for track and ran in the Penn Relays in high school. I enjoyed it but I knew football was where I wanted to be. I didn’t want to just run—I wanted to have a purpose behind it. Track has really helped

me on the field from a conditioning standpoint. I’ve got a lot of miles on these legs. What were your first impressions about Philadelphia? RM: I’m from the DC area so there are a lot of similarities. I had only been to Philly once before, but I had friends from here so I knew a lot about the city—like the cheesesteaks. I still don’t have a favorite. BC: Cincinnati was like a ghost town compared to Philadelphia; I had never really been to a major city before. One of the first things that I heard was about the people, that it was a rougher, tougher city. And it turns out that it is. [Laughs] But I liked that. It’s changed me for the better. How are you spending the off season? RM: I’m going to stay in Philly and check out new restaurants. I have a whole list on my phone. I’ve knocked a lot of tourist stuff off my bucket list already: the Rocky steps, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell. BC: My family and I are going to a cabin in the Midwest. I like to cook, so I’ll make everything from scratch, and read a lot. Being a new dad is the greatest thing ever. My daughter has really changed how I see the world. What’s one thing people might not know about you? RM: I’m the oldest of five brothers and sisters so I always helped out growing up, from making grilled cheese to changing diapers. BC: I’m an entrepreneur at heart. Real estate is my passion so I’m getting more involved in that. And I’m working with a local R&B artist, Guordan Banks, on his music career. Music is my other passion.

It wasn’t so long ago that the only place you could dig into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all the hangry-making moments in between was the diner. Enter the all-day café, a new way of eating out that feels overdue for Philly. After all, Europeans have been enjoying hand-poured coffee and fresh-baked bites whenever they please for centuries. Ellen Yin’s nationally recognized High Street on Market (308 Market St., 215-625-0988; highstreetonmarket.com) and Michael Schulson’s coffeemeets-sushi concept Double Knot (120 S. 13th St., 215-6313868; doubleknotphilly.com) were among the first.

Here, brothers Anthony and Damon Mascieri have assembled a menu of global bites that pairs well with 18 beverages on tap for beer, wine, and, yes, a trio of coffees. Meanwhile, over at Rittenhouse’s Res Ipsa (2218 Walnut St., 267-519-0329; resipsaphilly.com), a collab between ReAnimator Coffee and Stock chef Tyler Akin, chia seed parfaits give way to Italian fare like garlicky spaghetti and clams and whole fish with salsa verde.

PATRIOT GAMES! WALK IN GEORGE WASHINGTON’S FOOTSTEPS AT THE NEW MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.

If the presidential election left you wondering how government works, then Old City’s new Museum of the American Revolution, opening on April 19, may hold a few of the answers. Former governor Ed Rendell serves on the museum board and has been involved in the project since his early days in office. “It’s filled with one great story after another—and these are stories that need to be told,” he says. Here, Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, the museum’s VP of exhibits, details the top stops.

MUST-DO: PHOTO OPPS

MUST-SEE: UP IN ARMS

Boston’s famed Liberty Tree, a re-creation of Independence Hall during the British occupation, and a towering replica of an 18th-century ship are just a few of the museum’s major selfie moments. Says Stephenson: “This is a sensory experience: What was it like to stand under the Liberty Tree? Or sit in a chair in Independence Hall?” Outside, take a photo astride one of the cannons that decorate the museum’s permanent welcome pedestal.

Tucked behind glass in a dedicated 100-seat theater, the centerpiece of this vast collection is the sizable headquarters tent where George Washington conducted business and slept during much of the war. “This was essentially another home of Washington’s,” says Stephenson. The tent was made in Reading and used by Washington for nearly five years. Some historians even call it the first Oval Office.

“We have an amazing collection of 50 weapons never displayed in public before that trace the history of the arms that won our independence,” says Stephenson, who encourages visitors to check out what he calls a hi-def, touchscreen “virtual petting zoo” for artifacts.

DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH ARTIST LEILA CARTIER’S FASHION MAGAZINE COLLAGES ARE THE DEFINITION OF A BEAUTIFUL MESS. BY SARAH JORDAN

“I FIND IT MEDITATIVE TO CUT OUT THE IMAGES. IT’S BORDERLINE OBSESSIVE.” —leila cartier 66  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Leila Cartier, originally from coalcountry Virginia and descendant of 15th-century explorer Jacques Cartier, is known for her explorations of nature and beauty through ornate paintings and collages. A graduate of elite art schools Moore College of Art and Design and the Art Institute of Chicago, her work is tinged with beautiful decay and controlled abundance: Spot the skull , lurking praying mantis, or slithering snake blended into her rich creations. Cartier’s new series of large collages in the shape of trees, on view March 18 to April 15 at Schmidt-Dean Gallery (1719 Chestnut St.; schmidtdean.com), are fashioned from images of jewelry handcut from magazines. Here, she talks about her crafty creative process. Work essentials: “English bluehandled Winsor & Newton watercolor brushes.” Art heroes: “Gustav Klimt, Pipilotti Rist, Sally Mann, Marilyn Minter, Andy Warhol.” Inspiration points: “Fashion magazines. I have stacks of torn out pages. I find it meditative to cut out the images. It’s borderline obsessive.” In the zone: “I’ll bring food and drinks so I don’t have to leave my studio. I’ve worked 10 hours straight, but you have to know when to stop so you don’t ruin things.” Words to live by: “During my undergrad year in Rome, my instructor, artist Stanley Whitney, said, ‘There’s already enough art in the world, so if you’re going to make art, you need to be serious about it.’” leilacartier.com

WINE NOT? SEE, SWIRL, SNIFF, SIP, AND SAVOR SPRING’S BEST BOTTLES DURING PHILLY WINE WE . BY BRIAN FREEDMAN

Now in its third year, Philly Wine Week (phillywineweek.org), March 19 to 26, will be highlighting the grape in all kinds of interesting and delicious ways at more than 60 restaurants and bars. Here, four oenophile favorites for raising a glass. PANORAMIC VIEW

Panorama general manager and Wine Director Bill Eccleston cofounded Philly Wine Week with Kate Moroney, of Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro, in 2014. The wine program Eccleston has developed over the years, including more than 150 wines by the glass, is one of the city’s most notable for Italian reds like the Cantina Frentana Terre Valse Montepulciano and stunning American beauties like the Billsboro Semi-Dry Riesling. Penn���s View Hotel, 14 N. Front St., 215-922-7800; pennsviewhotel.com/panorama

Wine Week is yet another reason to head on up to that regal, second-floor aerie that is Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse. Pair one of the legendary steaks with a phenomenal bottle of Iuli Rossore 2012, a deeply expressive California red like the Merriam Cabernet Franc 2011, or one of the restaurant’s exquisite private-label wines. 111 S. 17th St., 215-5634810; davios.com/phil

JAMONERA IS ONE OF PHILLY’S FINEST HOMAGES TO THE GLORIES OF IBERIAN CUISINE.

ONE WINE AT A TINE

clockwise from top left: A mixed wine flight with the antipasti misto at Panorama; the artful presentation of Panorama’s tortelloni en brodo (lamb shoulder caponata, black garlic brodo, peas) is a feast for the eyes; Davio’s has its own private-label wines, both red and white.

Fork, a mainstay of Philly dining for nearly two decades, has, in the past few years, become a nationally lauded destination. No wonder: The food here is nothing short of stunning, and the wine program, featuring such stellar bottles as the Olga Raffault Les Picasses Chinon 2010 and the Champagne Colin Cuvée Alliance, works alongside the vision of the kitchen impeccably. 306 Market St., 215-625-9425; forkrestaurant.com

Jamonera is one of Philly’s finest homages to the glories of Iberian cuisine—not to mention a wine and sherry program that’s a study in Spanish grapes. For Wine Week, we love the R. López de Heredia Viña Gravonia Crianza 2003, a white wine for white-wine skeptics, or the Rotllan Torra 2012 from Priorat. Also look for special Wine Week events, like a dinner with 10 tapas and sparkling-wine pairings. 105 S. 13th St., 215-922-6061; jamonerarestaurant.com

PLACE YOUR ZABÊTES! NEW YORK FASHION MAVEN BETH BUCCINI DELIVERS HIGH STYLE TO HER HOMETOWN AT BRYN MAWR’S BUZZY NEW OUTPOST OF IRNA ZABÊTE.

PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF KIRA LUXON PHOTOGRAPHY

BY MARNI PRICHARD MANKO

A few weeks after Beth Buccini opened the Bryn Mawr location of her renowned New York City fashion emporium Kirna Zabête, a customer walked in, looked around at the rows of luxe, fashion-forward clothes, shoes, and accessories, and stated, “You’ll never be able to sell any of this.” To which Buccini retorted, “Actually, it’s all been selling really well.” Really, really well, in fact. Buccini’s sartorial sixth sense has rarely failed her. It was the reason that this former fashion magazine editor opened her first store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood 17 years ago, which has since garnered A-list fans like Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz. And it’s that same instinct that compelled her to bring it home to Philly this past winter. “When I first opened the New York store, I felt like there was a void in the market,” she says. “When I moved to Chadds Ford six years ago with my kids and husband, I spent a lot of time looking at what everyone was wearing. And I felt that same kind of void. The woman here is very sophisticated and knows what she wants—and if she doesn’t know, she’s eager to learn. And that’s my favorite type of customer.” To fill that local void, Buccini has transformed an old Septa garage into a sleek Bryn Mawr Village boutique that carries an eclectic and meticulously curated montage of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, gifts, and home goods. Her wares range from a $5 Terrapin Stationers Je T’aime

Red alert: With Kirna Zabête now in her own backyard in Bryn Mawr, Chadds Ford resident Beth Buccini is already planning a fourth location in Palm Beach.

“THE WOMAN HERE [IN PHILADELPHIA] IS VERY SOPHISTICATED AND KNOWS WHAT SHE WANTS—AND IF SHE DOESN’T KNOW, SHE’S EAGER TO LEARN.” —beth buccini

Mini Card notecard to a $5,000 Mr&Mrs Italy parka, with racks of enough Chloé, Stella McCartney, Frame Denim, Adam Lippes, Altuzarra, and Saint Laurent pieces in between to satiate even the most discerning shopper. “I think that my fashion editor training was fundamental in tweaking my eye and allowing me to learn what’s important and what’s interesting,” she says of how she decides what makes the cut. “I try not to look at things as a retailer all the time. The one thing I’ve found over the years is that people want interesting, new, fun, unique. But they also want solutions.” Her editor training and industry cred has also allowed her to forge global relationships with cuttingedge, up-and-coming designers, including 42 labels with whom she has exclusives in the Philly market, like Off White, Ellery, Monse, and La Double J. “It’s been our mission for the last 17 years to carry the most important designers of today and tomorrow,” says Sacai-loving Buccini, who describes her style inspiration as a cross between revered socialite Lee Radziwill and funky Wonderland editor Julia SarrJamois. “We have Gucci, which is the hottest designer in this location, but I always want to show new designers that have that element of surprise. Creatively, it needs to give me goosebumps.” But don’t head over on the hunt for the hottest trends. “I try not to be trend-based, because at the end of the day you want to buy things that stay in your wardrobe that you can wear over and over,” she says. “Ideally, a woman should be filling her closet with things that she loves of great quality, that she can wear over a lifetime.” Bryn Mawr Village, 915 and 925 W.

Later this year, Rachel Ford will move her Made Institute design studio to a permanent home in the Spring Arts District, complete with state-of-the-art machinery and a new coworking space.

BY MARNI PRICHARD MANKO

“WE FOCUS ON THE ENTREPRENEURIAL EXPERIENCE, OFFERING CLASSES THAT GET DESIGNERS READY TO LAUNCH.” —RACHEL FORD

How does the Made Institute differ from a traditional fashion program? “We’re not a school; we offer a full-circle ecosystem that provides a high-level fashion education, business community, and resources to emerging designers.” How has the fashion designer of today evolved? “Instead of pursuing a four-year degree and working for a corporate fashion company, designers are coming from other fields, looking to make a mark of their own.” Talk about the business education side. “We focus on the entrepreneurial experience, offering classes that get designers ready to launch. In addition to technical knowledge, they’ll have websites, social media platforms, business cards, tech packs, product samples, business licenses, and business plans all before our annual runway show.” What niche do you think Made fills in the Philly fashion scene? “The only thing lacking in the Philly fashion scene was just that—the scene! So many designers are working independently in their small studios, feeling disconnected from any sense of community and guidance. I want Made to connect the dots.” 305 Cherry St., 855-623-3745; made-institute.com

THE TURNTABLES

With classic silhouettes, minimal hardware, few fancy details, and no showy logos save for the embossed brand name, Shinola’s leather goods for men are about as understated as it gets. The large carryall, available in black and brown but looking best in a rich shade of bourbon, is a tote you’ll carry for a lifetime.

You could go about building your dream timepiece at the custom watch bar. But selecting one of the brand’s signature designs is equally satisfying. Shinola proves that they know their way around a watch with the new Runwell sport chronograph, a refined and rugged design with gold accents and a black leather strap.

A respectable vinyl collection calls for home audio accessories that look just as good as they function: Enter Shinola’s new displayworthy turntables in varying shades of black, silver, and neutral. It’s a move that Panis says illustrates the “elasticity of the brand.” Headphones and speakers will roll out next.

IN THE LOOP ACCESSORIES DESIGNER DEBBIE MARTIN TURNS THE PAINTBRUSH OVER TO KIDS FOR A GOOD CAUSE. BY KRISTIN DETTERLINE

After some 40 years in the fashion industry working in product development for department stores like Bloomingdale’s and Bergdorf Goodman and womenswear brands such as Chico’s, Debbie Martin decided it was time to retire. Sort of. “The thought of never working again was unfathomable, so I decided a scarf collection was a great vehicle for me—it’s an accessory for every age and any season,” she says. This so-called vehicle took off at lightning speed: Launched in 2014, her chic, featherweight Debbie Martin Designs scarves are sold in nearly 100 boutiques and museum stores across the country, including the Art Museum. Martin, who has collaborated with artists and even her husband on prints, says that her Bucks County home of 35 years has influenced countless designs. “I’ve traveled all over the globe and I still think New Hope is the most beautiful place in the world,” she shares. But Martin’s greatest source of inspiration has undoubtedly been her 8-year-old niece, Hazel, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder that has left her confined to a wheelchair. Martin used one of Hazel’s finger paintings for a scarf and an entire collection was born: The Hazel & Friends line now includes designs from other sick children, with 20 percent of sales benefiting charities dedicated to genetic research and playground projects. With retirement officially on the backburner, Martin says she’s working harder than ever. “This is mine so it never feels like work. There are so many places I can take this collection.” debbiemartindesigns.com

COLOR ME SPRINGTIME! AS BUDS BURST AND NATURE BLOSSOMS, WATCHMAKERS OFFER A RIOT OF COLOR IN PIECES THAT BLOOM ON THE WRIST. BY ALDOUS TUCK

“April… hath put a spirit of youth in everything,” wrote William Shakespeare in “Sonnet 98.” Indeed, the boundless energy of nature’s rebirth has been an inspiration for artists since the beginning of time. And like the Bard, some of the world’s finest watchmakers use springtime as an occasion to express their artistic skill in pieces that celebrate color and high style on the outside and engineering excellence on the inside. Shimmering precious metals, mother-ofpearl accents, and dazzling gemstones enhance the hues of the season. These creations may measure time, but like a beautifully turned sonnet, their appeal is timeless. For more watch features and expanded coverage, go to phillystylemag.com/watches-and-jewelry.

But even he was struck by an uptick in requests for a certain bouquet style. “The foam bouquet holder from the ’90s is back,” says Kappra. “Brides want a cascade of flowers and more movement instead of the bowling-ball bouquets that we’ve seen over the last few years.” For spring, those looser arrangements will be punctuated by peonies, hydrangeas, and other “less architectural flowers” in different shades of white and surrounded by greens. The subdued color palette plays well against other of-the-moment touches like mirrored tables, layered linens, mixed table settings, and a focus on furnishings like Lucite chairs, says Kappra. He adds that lighting— including natural light at outdoor affairs—should always be a factor when making design decisions. “It shouldn’t be a matter of choosing one flower over another,” says Kappra, about constructing bouquets and table arrangements. “The overall feel of the wedding is what’s most important.” 7500 Wheeler St., 215492-8545; evantinedesign.com

It’s no secret that Cescaphe Event Group has been one of Philadelphia’s leading names in weddings for over 15 years. But five swank city venues in the portfolio still wasn’t enough for Joe Volpe, founder and CEO. Enter Fairmount’s historic Water Works. “It was always a dream of mine to be associated with a national treasure,” says Volpe of Water Works. Opened in the late 1800s, it’s hard to believe the photo-worthy Neoclassical building was once a hub of the city’s water department. For couples tying the knot April through October, Volpe suggests their first-ever outdoor reception area: the Grand Pavilion. The space not only offers panoramic views of Boathouse Row and the Center City skyline, but also features custom tenting and 19thcentury-inspired columns. For larger affairs, the Mill House Deck can host up to 400 people. The newly renovated Engine House is ideal for more intimate weddings, with room for up to 140 guests. Crystal chandeliers, crown molding, and hardwood and tile flooring are some of the updates to the main ballroom here. The property’s original bar was removed to create a private bridal suite. Upon removal, a hidden staircase was uncovered that once led to the caretaker’s cottage. “We incorporated the stairs into the unique design of the bridal suite,” says Volpe. Whichever space you choose, Water Works continues to offer the top-notch service that Cescaphe is known for. “Every wedding becomes a part of a bride’s and groom’s personal history, but Water Works weddings now allow us to make each wedding a part of Philadelphia history.” 640 Waterworks Dr., 215-238-5750; cescaphe.com

GARDEN PARTY

The Merion has been a staple in South Jersey weddings for more than 40 years. But even with four ballrooms to choose from and a catering menu as thick as a dictionary—think caviar and street vendor stations and a grooms table with bar-food faves—brides still wanted more. They wanted to have their cake and eat it too, just outdoors. “We’ve added what brides have asked for,” says General Manager Cliff Miller of the Cinnaminson venue’s new North Garden. The manicured space can host up to 400 people and features fixtures from Italy including a five-tier cascading fountain, illuminated ponds, and marble bridges. “This new addition has created endless photo ops thanks to the landscapes and dramatic lighting,” he adds. After the open-air ceremony, guests will head to one of four

ballrooms, each designed in different themes. The Palazzo Ballroom is ideal for a party of epic proportions, with room to entertain 600 guests. For smaller affairs, The Merion offers the French-influenced Palace Ballroom and the Empire Ballroom, a modern setting inspired by New York City. And its most soughtafter space? The grand Skylight Ballroom, featuring a 40-foot-diameter glass dome that cloaks the room in natural light. With the warmer weather, Miller expects to see even more photo-driven reception surprises like selfie sticks, personalized step and repeats, and flower walls. But for the ultimate photo setting just step outside—that’s what the new North Garden is there for. 1301 Rte. 130 S., Cinnaminson, NJ, 856-829-2111; themerion.com

AFTER DESIGNING 15 LOOKS FOR HER WEEKLONG DREAM WEDDING, NAVEDA COUTURE’S AMY DEVAN TAKES HER BRIDAL LABEL IN A NEW DIRECTION. BY CONNIE CAPONE

Amy Devan, leading lady of Philadelphia label Naveda Couture (naveda couture.com), is a shining example of the “love what you do” mentality. A Drexel MBA grad gone fashion, Devan spent years in corporate marketing before pursuing her dream job in design school and ultimately launching Naveda, which sells online as well as in boutiques including Rittenhouse’s

106

PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Shop Sixty Five (128 S. 17th St., 267-239-5488; shopsixtyfive.com). Fastforward three years and this jetsetter turned her weeklong wedding into a bohemian daydream. “Bridalwear is a big part of what I do at Naveda,” says Devan, “I design and style for who I call the ‘wanderluxe’—my interpretation of a wild dreamer who has an appreciation for intricate, luxe details.”

THE WEDDING: At the first of Devan’s two wedding ceremonies, at The Merion’s Skylight Ballroom, an altar towered with flowers and accents like a vintage chandelier and imported Chantilly lace. “It was designed to look like we were in an enchanted garden,” says Devan. THE LOOKS: Creating more

than 15 designs for her

wedding, Devan styled her bridesmaids in floralprint silk lehengas and hand-embroidered summer capes. Since white symbolizes mourning in Hinduism, Devan wore crimson red; for the second ceremony, she chose a dusty rosecolored gown with ivory beadwork and a long veil. “I felt so regal,” she says. “Like I was out of an old Hollywood movie.”

THE FUTURE: With the

wedding behind her, Devan is taking Naveda Couture in a new direction for 2017, with styling services, lifestyle products, and jewelry. Her aim is to relaunch the brand in a fresh light. Says the blissful Devan, “I’m blending my work with the start of my happily ever after. Does it get any better than that?”

Full brows are in, and brides are taking notice. But they aren’t always so easy to achieve—especially if you followed the ’90s trend of over-plucking (we’re all guilty). Fortunately, 3000BC (8439 Germantown Ave., 215247-6020; 3000bcspa.com) has a treatment to cure any brow woes. “A wellgroomed, well-defined brow can make you look years younger,” says Jennifer Miller of 3000BC. The twohour treatment is simple: It’s similar to a tattoo, except the


Giovanni Mele. “The color-safe treatment has different formulas which tailor to all hair types and textures from fine to coarse.” Mele recommends getting the treatment done two to three weeks before your wedding. BENEATH THE SURFACE

Makeup can be magical, but underneath a flawless face is simply great skin. “Endymed’s Intensif is one of my favorite skincare technologies that has emerged in recent years,” says Dr. Bucky of Louis P. Bucky Plastic Surgery (multiple locations, 215-4909864; drbucky.com). “The treatment itself is microneedling with radiofrequency, [which] amplifies the cell turnover and dramatically helps to boost collagen, reduce any fine lines, and tighten the skin.” Intensif is broken up into three separate treatments, each one month apart; the

last is one month prior to the wedding, with the option to come in 10 days before for an added brightening treatment. SMOOTH OPERATOR

Worried about laugh lines from all that smiling? Cross Medical Group (multiple locations, 215-561-9100; crossmedicalgroup.com), which just introduced wonder filler Volbella for fuller pouts to Philly, has the solution. About four to six weeks before your wedding, opt for a Botox treatment. “Botox will help you smile and gesture without making lines and folds,” says Maria Schafer, aesthetic nurse injector at Cross. “It helps to ‘iron out’ your skin.” If sun damage and unsightly veins are a concern, clinical aesthetician Joanna Pinkerton recommends IPL photofacials. “In a few short sessions, we can remove sun damage and veins to reveal a more even complexion.”

As one of the area’s most prolific and innovative restaurateurs, Marty Grims is the mastermind behind the Main Line’s pair of White Dog Cafés (200 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, 610-2253700; 379 Lancaster Ave., Haverford, 610-896-4556; whitedog.com). At either of these restaurants--plus the University City outpost of the café and the floating dining room known as the Moshulu ship along Delaware Avenue—the creative vision is just as important as the cuisine itself. But whereas the White Dogs pay homage to our canine friends, Grims’s latest endeavor, Autograph Brasserie, is an elegant and in-your-face nod to pop culture icons from the 1950s to today. Walking into the vaulted space that Georges Perrier once called his own (Le Mas Perrier, Le Mas, Georges’), David Semerjian Builders and Balongue Design have transformed it into a visual wonderland. More than 550 autographed album covers line the lounge walls, while nearly 500 more autographed photos are peppered throughout the restaurant. “The inspiration came from my fascination when reviewing an autograph of President Lincoln,” says Grims. “Seeing the signature of someone who has had such a great impact on history was incredibly powerful.” The curating process took about a year, collecting

And the poster-size photographs aren’t posters—they’re limited-edition photography from the original negatives. “Each person who dines with us finds connections with different pop culture figures depending on who they grew up with,” says Grims, adding that Kurt Cobain, Prince, and Elton John are some of the most commented on. “Guests walk around reflecting on when they purchased the same albums.” The ambience has both feminine and masculine energy: The Sycamore Room, with its namesake tree planted in the center adorned with gold butterflies, celebrates legendary glamazons, while the Club Room’s manly vibe has images of Keith Richards and James Gandolfini lording over the room. Commanding the kitchen is Executive Chef Ralph Fernandez, whose stellar

contemporary Americanmeets-steakhouse menu draws on culinary signatures of France, Italy, and Spain. Some standouts are the charred Spanish octopus with Calabrian chili oil, preserved lemon, parsley, smoked pimenton aioli, and crispy potatoes, as well as a succulent whole roasted chicken with chive potato purée, wild mushrooms, and Madeira sage jus. And you can’t ever go wrong with one of the homemade pastas such as the pappardelle with duck confit, wild mushrooms, spinach, dried cherries, goat cheese, toasted walnuts, and citrus truffle jus. Such a cool dining concept attracts an equally cool crowd, especially at the bar, where fizzy Aperol spritzes and updated riffs on the Negroni fuel chatter from happy hour until late night about—what else?—all-time favorite albums. 503 W.

In addition to the classic black and white stripe, there’s an undertone of bold color and irregular spacing reminiscent of racing tents and Nantucket awnings.” And since she’s based out of New England, Campbell is over the moon about stripes. “We’re from the home of all things preppy and nautical, so any stripe that reminds us of our beach umbrella is an automatic yes!” she says.

SUPER STRIPES

Stripes in every formation are huge this season, whether it be broad bands of color or skinny lines. “I love big stripes and I cannot lie,” says Conni A.

Main Line’s Leading Cosmetic and Neuromuscular Dentist “CHOKER NECKLACES SEEM TO BE EVOLVING IN DESIGN, WITH LIGHTER VARIATIONS FOR WARMER MONTHS.” —SARA CAMPBELL Even aforementioned trends like stripes--specifically banker stripes, says D’Ambrosio--and off-theshoulder silhouettes are making the button-down cool again. “I think it’s the contradictions that make this look so interesting,” adds D’Ambrosio. CHOKEHOLD

And perhaps in what’s been the most ubiquitous jewelry trend of recent years, chokers still have a chokehold on the necks of even the most staid Main Liners. “Choker necklaces seem to be evolving in design, with lighter variations for warmer

months,” says Campbell. McDonnell agrees about the updated iteration of winter’s heavier choker. “Think thin cords, suede, lace, or ribbon with a small bauble or crystal accent. Wear one or 10 in varying lengths. I’m still seeing these on Paris streets, and loving the creative ways they are worn by women of every age.” At accessories wonderland Marlyn Schiff (119 Coulter Ave., Ardmore, 610-642-3811; marlynschiff.com), the eponymous designer says chokers remain a top seller, and pair well with of-the-moment tassel or lariat necklaces.

Imagine being able to give your favorite furniture a second life—a cooler, more contemporary life. Molly Andrews Burke, owner and creative director of Chairloom, does just that. “What makes a piece of furniture perfect for reupholstering is good bones,” says Burke. “It has to have a good quality frame and feature an interesting shape.” The furniture guru works with an array of textiles (think Utopia Goods, Katie Ridder, Eskayel, and more) to repurpose sofas, tables, porch swings, ottomans, and, her favorite, chairs. “I love when people bring us a textile from a foreign country, or a family heirloom with an interesting history.” Chairloom has a lot to celebrate. Last September, they opened a second location (the original is in Ardmore) at Works, Kennett Square’s new lifestyle co-op shop. “Kennett has helped us achieve a pop-up shop away from home, and now allows us to brand a second space to have a life of its own,” says Burke. The Chairloom team is collaborating with House of Hackney, a London-based textile company, on a vintage and custom furniture display at Bergdorf Goodman in March. Says Burke, “We’re looking forward to seeing what doors open now that we will be making more of our own vintageinspired pieces.” 432 S. Walnut St., Kennett Square, 484-732-8586; chairloom.com

Though Jay-Z and Beyoncé won’t be moving in when occupancy begins this summer, the owners of the city’s highest-selling condominium ever, for a cool $17.85 million, will now call the bilevel penthouse at 500 Walnut (500 Walnut St., 215-5740500; 500walnut.net) home. Visionary developer Tom Scannapieco of Scannapieco Development Corporation, who first stunned Philadelphia with the ultraluxury residence

1706 Rittenhouse, has done it again at 500 Walnut-and broken his own record. “We constantly challenge ourselves,” he says. “500 Walnut establishes a new benchmark for excellence in Philly.”

IT’S ELECTRIC ALL IN THE DETAILS

Customization is in the DNA of the Scannapieco brand: Step into any one of the 35 residences and you’ll find 35 distinctly different floor plans over the 26-story glass tower. Want to overlook

When 1706 opened in 2010, the fully automated, valet-free underground parking system was an amenity that Philly hadn’t seen yet. Scannapieco takes it one futuristic step further here, with the first plugless induction

EXTRA, EXTRA

Many of the amenities at 500 Walnut were dreamed up not just by the Scannapieco team but the residents of 1706. Thank them for the hotel-chic guest suite, handsome library and

billiard room, and outdoor yoga terrace. PARKS AND REC

Though every residence has an entertaining-worthy private balcony, the fourth-floor main terrace is the airy jewel in this residential crown. The 4,000-square-foot veranda, studded with neat greenery, a gazebo, and a fireplace, overlooks Independence Park. Reach out and touch Independence Hall—or pretend to.

BARBARA EBERLEIN TALKS ART FAIRS, ARCHAEOLOGY, AND HER AWARD-WINNING WORK AT ARDROSSAN. BY MARY MARGARET EWENS

“Design is much more than knowing where to buy a sofa,” says noted Philadelphia-based interior designer Barbara Eberlein. “Dig deep, do your research, develop real expertise.” Eberlein would know: The Rittenhouse design doyenne’s namesake consulting firm, Eberlein Design Consultants Ltd., is the creative force behind some of the city’s poshest residences and the mindful caretaker of countless historic restoration projects. Among them is Villanova’s Ardrossan estate, which earned

142  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Eberlein a Trumbauer Award for Best Residential Interior Design Project from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, as well as a second nod for Best Commercial Interior Design Project for a private women’s club. A passion for travel coupled with her archeology background has informed her classic, antiquefilled aesthetic. Selecting design schemes that have substance and the adaptability to transcend centuries and continents to create something fresh is what

sets her work apart. But Eberlein knows all of her gilded success is thanks to her clients. “You have to imagine how your clients look in a space,” Eberlein says. “More importantly, how they feel is crucial: Clients don’t come to designers to be dictated to; they come to be part of a conversation, a relationship.” What’s Eberlein’s best advice to clients? “Attend art fairs and visit antique shops— they’ll give you an unbelievable education.” 1809 Delancey Pl., 215-790-0300; eberlein.com

AMBLER ON FROM POOLS TO POOL TABLES, THIS SPRAWLING SUBURBAN HOME IS FILLED WITH SURPRISES. BY JOANN GRECO

The Ambler home is situated on nearly five acres in a private cul de sac.

A sitting room, fireplace, and his-and-hers baths can be found in the master suite.

As you ramble down the long, long driveway, sweep through iron gates and curve along the courtyard, glimpses of the Pennypack Watershed woods surround you. Still, you can’t take your eyes off of the Norman-style manse that beckons ahead. Owners David and Jean built the 12,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, eight-bath Ambler home 10 years ago, entrusting its overall design to architect Richard Cole, and requesting just a few absolutes. “We had four grown children at the time, so we put a premium on making it comfortable for an extended family to come and enjoy our home,” says David. Good thing, too, since they now have 10 grandchildren. The plan for the house, adds Jean, “organized itself around several large gathering spaces.” To one side of the marble entryway lies a living room and then beyond it a family room; to the other, the dining room. Striking custom rugs cover intricate hardwood flooring, and Center City interior designers Jonathan Bassman and Carl Steele adorned each of these rooms with a mellifluous riot of floral and geometric patterns on an endless array of upholstery and wallpapers. “Yellow is a favorite of mine,” says Jean, indicating the sunny checks, graphic diamonds, and bold stripes that show up in the living room, and the mustard tones that combine with

russet hues in the more masculine family room. Even the enormous kitchen, outfitted in granite countertops and white cabinetry, gleams with shades of yellow and gold. “I like everything to be as bright and cheery as possible.” When it’s time to retire for the evening, a grand staircase draws the couple upstairs where David’s office, a fitness area overlooking the pool, a

lavish master bedroom suite (with his and her baths), and generous dressing rooms offer a retreat. On the opposite side of an atrium that stretches from the firstfloor entry, a separate wing contains a series of en-suite guest bedrooms (as well as a full maid’s or mother-in-law apartment). Other amenities in the house include an elevator (“a godsend,” says David), laundry room, four-car

garage, and a full finished basement with cedar-lined storage, a game room, and a powder room. Jean observes that David loves “showing off controls such as centralized lighting and in-ground snow-melting systems.” Back on the main level, the owners’ favorite private spaces offer twin respites that link them to the outdoors. Jean’s serene conservatory showcases her orchid

collection while David’s sanctuary centers on a skylit lap pool ringed by French doors that open to the expansive grounds. “Being here is like being on vacation,” he says, and his delighted chuckle makes it clear that he’s not just referring to this oasis, but to the entire house.

SPACE UP TO SPEED “THE F-PACE SUV MAKES JAGUAR AN EVEN BIGGER PLAYER IN THE VERY COMPETITIVE LUXURY FIELD.” —MICHAEL SMYTH

CAT CALL BY GEORGE POLGAR

A new jungle king has descended from the illustrious Jaguar pedigree. With the same glossy grit of its luxury lineage but for a broader spectrum of activities, the F-Pace SUV is anything but a clunky roadster—it’s a sturdy, agile ride. “The F-Pace SUV really makes Jaguar an even bigger player in the very competitive luxury field,” says said

148 PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Michael Smyth of Jaguar Main Line and Jaguar Willow Grove. “Jaguar certainly has the heritage… and now with this amazing new F-Pace SUV, the brand is at the top of its game.” And it looks good, too. Fitting the profile of a predator, the F-Pace is fronted by sleek ripples on the hood like a clenched abdomen, opposite an

aerodynamic rear profile. Inside the spacious cabin is stitched two-tone leather seating, with dash and door panels accented in brushed aluminum. The F-Pace S First Edition, rolling at $70,000, emphasizes high impact--from a scorching metallic finish to swaggering 22-inch dark-finish alloy wheels. The standard model offers a 340-horsepower

engine or optional 380-horsepower supercharged V-6, housed by a stiff but lightweight aluminum car foundation. On the wooded back roads of the old Main Line, the F-Pace is a stirring performer, with its sophisticated computer-controlled driving dynamics taking the edge off of tight turns and sweeping curves. I took an

early-morning romp through the wide-open stretches of the Schuylkill River Drive loop to see what this car was capable of. The F-Pace proved so inspiring, I took a second lap before daybreak. 325 E.
