journalist before working as executive director of Dale al Voto, a Venezuelan foundation similar to Rock the Vote. He also worked in promotions at one point before deciding to become an actor. His first role of note was in the Venevisión soap opera Cosita Rica. His first major motion picture was Tony Scott’s 2005 film, Domino, and first blockbuster the 2007 action flick The Bourne Ultimatum. He has appeared in a plethora of films with big-name directors since his early days as an actor, including Steven Soderbergh’s Che; Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty; and David O. Russell’s Joy. Other projects include Vantage Point; the 2015 Point Break reboot; Hands of Stone; The Girl on the Train; and, more recently, Gold and Bright.

country. However, every time I walk through Buenos Aires [in Argentina], I see young people from my country that have fled there just happy that they’re alive, that they have a new slate in front of them. And that is beautiful. It gives me hope.” We ask if he thinks his innate optimism—his hopefulness—has helped him navigate through life—the belief that if you want things to be wonderful, they will be. He mulls this over, and he agrees. “I think so. I always try to see the glass as half full and not half empty. I mean, there are days when I just see emptiness, sure—it’s not a constant thing—but most of the time, I have to believe that things can improve. Bad things, evil things just tend to be a little bit louder.” But it’s in his personality to focus on the good, to live in the moment. He asserts that he’s happy with his path: “I’m very lucky. I also work very hard. I have great people around me, and I try to surround myself with people who have the same attitude. I’m at a very interesting moment [in

my life]. But you know, if you had asked me 10 years ago, I would have said the same thing. I’m very open to what the day awaits.”

LL OF LOS ANGELES TURNED OUT IN SUPPORT OF NBA ALL-STAR AND L..A. LAKERS KING KOBE BRYANT, who celebrated his retirement with a citywide block party, aptly named Kobeland. The evening of Dec. 18 started out with a street festival, which featured a variety of interactive games, a Kobe-inspired Ferris Wheel, special basketball shootout, photo opportunities, branded merchandise and a live DJ that was open to the public. Inside the Staples Center, many former L.A. Lakers players were in attendance including Magic Johnson for this historical moment, and Grammy-nominated artist Kendrick Lamar gave a special performance as well as a DJ set by the one and only Shaquille O’Neal. This Is Us actor Justin Hartley also got

headed to the chic town of Aspen for a change of scenery for President’s Day Weekend. Before I met my husband, I had never skied a day in my life—which is crazy considering I’m from Canada. Lucky for me, Dr. Hochstein is an expert skier, and I knew he could teach me his ways in no time. About eight years ago, I was zooming down the blue trails after two days of private ski lessons. I loved challenging myself while enjoying the picturesque views of the mountain. This was the moment I fell in love with Aspen, and ever since I’ve returned every year. While visiting the happening city, I never miss an opportunity to hit my favorite restaurants Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro and The Little Nell during the day. At night, Matsuhisa, Piñons, Campo de Fiori, Cache Cache and Casa Tua rank at the top of my favorite spots. And of course, we always end the night with drinks at Caribou Club.

Michael Kors talks about this season’s biggest trend: easy dressing.


After months of dark hues and layered looks, spring wardrobes are the perfect time to lighten things up a bit. To keep your look fresh without defaulting to a boring tee and jean look, take a page from designer extraordinaire Michael Kors’ book for the must-have looks of the modern man. The spring 2018 collection from Michael Kors is all about pieces that can easily take you from work to weekend. All have a sense of ease, but are pulled together with urban tailoring. And the biggest trend emerging from the collection is the monochrome look. In shades of ecru, white, luggage and gray, a head-to-toe ensemble in one shade feels updated and cool for when the weather gets warmer. “When the temperatures start to rise, a monochrome look can replace a suit. It’s lighter, more laid-back, and it’s easy, which is key during the spring and summer, but it still looks polished,” shares Kors. Worried that one hue will be boring? Kors has a couple of tips to keep you from feeling one-dimensional: “What happens in the spring and summer is that a lot of men’s looks fall flat because there’s no texture—you’re not wearing knits or flannel or tweed. Garment dying or cold dying takes care of that by adding a little more dimension. And of course textured accessories, like croc-embossed flipflops and braided leather belts, as well as mixed linen and leather bags go a long way in terms of your overall look.” Kors also suggests picking a safer color, like gray, and playing up the

TOUGH LOVE

Coach captures the toughness and tenderness of New York City by teaming up with artist Keith Haring. Since coming on board as Coach’s creative Director in 2013, Stuart Vevers has reimagined and redefined the heritage brand. This spring is no exception—the women’s ready-to-wear collection evokes a tomboyish femininity with satin bomber jackets adorned with rose gold rivets and silk-and-lace-trimmed slip dresses that sparkle and shine. These feminine and nostalgic elements are mixed with Coach classic leathers to add an edgy appeal. Vevers took this duality to the powerful accessories collection as well. For inspiration, he looked to the late downtown scene in the early ’80s. Vevers also has a deep, personal connection with Haring. “I love that sort of undone, unprecious glamour and sensuality—it feels very true to the house,” he says. To capture that downtown glamour, Haring’s iconic illustrations are at the heart of this season’s collection. Based in NYC, Haring used his art to create a message of individuality and inclusivity, a core value of Coach. Vevers riffled through the archives for handbag inspiration and found it in archival styles like Coach’s iconic Mailbox silhouette —a boxy cross-body handbag that has been one of Coach’s longtime calling cards since 1972. “I liked the idea of customizing it and making it into a canvas for something really personal,” Vevers says. “We’ve taken the familiar and subverted it with a downtown attitude—the unexpected juxtaposition feels very much for today.”

With previous stints at Calvin Klein and Club Monaco, she knows a thing or two about casual sophistication and quality craftsmanship. Her experience and creative eye will offer a fresh perspective to Vince, which we look forward to seeing in her first collection: Spring 2018. Calling back to Vince’s California origins, Belhumeur used the Golden Coast for inspiration. She explains, “We wanted to capture the feeling of sunlight, optimism and the sophisticated, effortless vibe of coastal living.” Embracing the spirit of the Vince woman, the designs focus not only on the brand’s California roots, but also the timeless style of famed artist Georgia O’Keeffe. These inspirations manifest in a balance of clean, easy breezy pieces fused with distinctive feminine details. A variety of proportions are offered, along with soft textures and fabrics such as cotton poplin and cashmere. Blush and adobe add warmth, while emerald and

travel accessory brand Rimowa. The launch of the collaboration caps off Rimowa’s 80th anniversary of the brand’s aluminum luggage debut. Founded in 1898, Rimowa is credited with creating the first suitcases made from aluminum and polycarbonate. With the help of luxury powerhouse Fendi, the innovative and durable Rimowa case underwent a stylish makeover, perfect for the modern and fashionable traveler. The FF logo is brushed onto the aluminum case, shimmering in the light. Additional Fendi details are a standout feature, with elements such as the Cuoio Romano leather handles and a yellow-toned web Fendi flair. Not just gorgeous to look at, the case is also lightweight and easily maneuverable, making it perfect for your next jaunt. Pietro Beccari, president and CEO of Fendi, said he was “thrilled” that the Rome-based brand would be “the first luxury house within the LVMH group to collaborate with Rimowa, leader in the luggage industry, combining Fendi’s savoir-faire and daring creativity with modern and high-tech Rimowa designs. This trolley is the expression of both brands’ DNA that come together for a uniquely contemporary yet highly crafted piece for both men and women.” To personalize the suitcase, add on some of the available stickers and a name tag in Cuoio Romano leather on the external belt. Bon voyage!

BEST FOOT FORWARD This spring, Gucci is taking the classic loafer and giving it a modern twist that will make it the new classic. Gucci’s current Creative Director Alessandro Michele was hired by none other than the visionary Tom Ford back in 2002, which, in itself, was a strong indication of his creative potential. After moving up the ranks on the design team to Creative Director of the Italian house in 2015, Michele has helped revive the iconic brand as a powerhouse with global reach. Unlike his predecessors, Michele has strayed from the sexiness of Gucci past to focus on a more modern twist on ‘varsity chic.’ Mixing vintage style with a contemporary flair and incorporating the highest quality textiles and materials, Michele’s eclectic point of view has made the new Gucci the aspirational look for men of style across the globe.

Michele’s new age aesthetic also goes into the footwear collection. Nothing is more classic

than a men’s loafer, but with a more rounded toe, the front of the shoe is adorned with a contrast, inlaid stripe, enameled metal and a tiger head detail. The classic metal horsebit has been updated with a tiger-eye stone as well. This is a powerful stone that aids in harmony and balance, and stimulates taking action—just what you need to get your feet moving forward.

Notable differences are the newly shaped bezel and the ability to switch easily between a metal bracelet and various straps. While the bracelet is very comfortable to wear and easily size adjustable sans tools, the strap seems to work better with the newly designed look of the iconic timepiece.

However, the Tribute to Pallweber was the one that stood out amongst them all. With its jump hour and jump minutes complication, it stayed very close to the design of the pocket watch, on which it is based. Combined with the quintessential clean design for which IWC is so well-known, it is an eye-catcher for sure, yet one that is bound to keep your attention as well.

It is also an important watch, not only for Baume et Mercier, but also for the watch world as a whole—for many people, a watch like this can serve as an entry point into the world of Haute Horlogerie.

PIAGET ALTIPLANO ULTIMATE 910P With its Altiplano Ultimate 910P, Piaget once again holds the record for the slimmest automatic watch in the world. With a thickness of only 4.3mm, it is indeed a mechanical marvel, one that is realized thanks to its peripheral rotor. This marks quite an achievement for the brand, as the difference in thickness between this model and the previous record holder, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic (introduced last year), is an impressive 0.85mm. On the wrist, the watch feels light and comfortable, while the majority of its components can be admired from the dial side.

ROGER DUBUIS EXCALIBUR AVENTADOR S Of course, we are all familiar with the Aventador S—Roger Dubuis marked the beginning of its partnership with Lamborghini with this model. However, the two new varieties that the brand introduced at the SIHH this year prove once again what a difference color and material can make. The pink gold version is particularly appealing to us, as it combines a sporty aesthetic with its carbon case and a certain richness with the pink gold finish, giving it a distinctive but gorgeous contrast overall.

RICHARD MILLE RM 53-01 TOURBILLON PABLO MAC DONOUGH The RM 53-01 already astonished us when we received its press release. But in real life, the watch is even more captivating. While it looks rather delicate, with its vertical movement secured by tiny steel cables, it is one of the most tenacious and durable watches around—durable enough to go into a polo match on the wrist of Pablo Mac Donough—a man who has broken nearly every bone in his body in the pursuit of his sport.

JAEGER-LECOULTRE POLARIS CHRONOGRAPH WORLD-TIME Jaeger-LeCoultre reintroduced the Polaris and we were especially taken by the World-Time model. With a classic, yet athletic look, it offers two of our favorite complications—a chronograph and a world-time complication. This makes it the perfect watch to travel with, while our appetite for Haute Horlogerie is satisfied with the automatic manufacture caliber that beats inside.

VACHERON CONSTANTIN FIFTYSIX The FiftySix collection by Vacheron Constantin is not only visually very pleasing, but it also expands the brand’s offerings in steel. It was the day-date with power reserve that caught our attention, as it combined that typical classic, yet slightly non-conformist Vacheron Constantin look, with a beautifully shaped case. The crown is recessed into the case, making it well-protected, functional and a stunning Vacheron Constantin piece for daily wear.

A. LANGE & SÖHNE TRIPLE SPLIT It is hard not to be in awe when in the presence of the A. Lange & Söhne Triple Split. It was to be expected that its German master watchmakers wanted to outdo themselves after 2004’s Double Split. But it was always unclear as to when that would happen. A technical marvel, the watch can count two times simultaneously in seconds, minutes and hours, and offers a fly-back function on all of them as well. Even the smallest of parts in this watch are finished to perfection—and we wouldn’t expect anything less from this highly esteemed brand.

PANERAI L’ASTRONOMO Panerai reached most of its success with time-only watches, occasionally venturing out to a chronograph or a GMT-complication. In more recent years, the brand is making more watches that combine multiple complications in a single timepiece. Such is also the case with the new Panerai L’Astronomo. This is a 50mm titanium Luminor 1950, with its manual wind movement featuring a GMT, a tourbillon, moon phases and the equation of time complication. Thanks to two mainspring barrels, it also has a power reserve of four days. Despite the skeletonized dial, the watch is very easy to read, while maintaining that simple, but gorgeous Panerai look and feel.

HUBLOT EXPANDS EXISTING COLLECTION IN EXTRAORDINARY WAYS HUBLOT NEVER SITS STILL, AND WHILE BASELWORLD IS THE BRAND’S PREFERRED STAGE TO INTRODUCE NEW WATCHES, IT DOESN’T LIMIT ITS PRESENCE AT OTHER HAUTE WATCH EVENTS. DURING THE SALON INTERNATIONALE DE LA HAUTE HORLOGERIE (SIHH) WEEK IN GENEVA, HUBLOT DEBUTED SOME WATCHES THAT ONCE AGAIN, PAY TRIBUTE TO ITS TAGLINE, “ART OF FUSION,” EXPANDING ITS EXISTING COLLECTIONS IN EXTRAORDINARY WAYS.

BIG BANG MECA-10 BLUE CERAMIC At its introduction, the Meca-10 made quite an impact with its two parallel barrels and its double power reserve display. It is one of the brand’s more innovative, technical watches—facets on which Hublot founded its reputation. The collection is expanding with a version of the watch case crafted from forged blue ceramic. Combined with a blue skeleton movement, the result is a highly technical watch that remains pleasantly casual.

BIG BANG UNICO WORLD POKER TOUR LIMITED EDITION Hublot renewed its partnership with the World Poker Tour in 2014 and to celebrate this occasion, it has captured the excitement that comes with playing poker at the highest level with the Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition. The watch is crafted from 45mm black ceramic, with its bezel featuring images of clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades, while the dial itself has the number “8” set with diamonds, paying tribute to the Chinese tradition of luck and prosperity. Limited to only 188 pieces, the Unico chronograph also allows its owner to keep track of game time.

BIG BANG FERRARI MAGIC GOLD When Hublot first joined forces with Ferrari in 2012, it did so with the Big Bang Ferrari in Magic Gold. The material is fitting for the watch, because while it is very precious—just like a Ferrari—it is also a high-performance, scratch-proof material. In a complex and patented process, Hublot combines 24-karat gold with boron carbide, resulting in the only 18-karat gold that can withstand markings from any material—even a diamond. The revamped Big Bang Ferrari collection, which was introduced last year, will now include a model in Magic Gold.

CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH ITALIA INDEPENDENT Hublot is also expanding its highly successful Italia Independent collection. This time, Italia Independent founder Lapo Elkann went back into the archives of extraordinary Italian tailoring and selected three fabrics inspired by the ‘60s and ‘70s. Hublot used them to craft the dials and straps of three new Classic Fusion Chronographs, which will join the Italia Independent collection. Just like the previous models, these three additions highlight that recognizable Italian flair, yet with a slightly sporty edge, thanks to the chronograph complication.

We all have heard that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I have yet to meet a beholder who doesn’t immediately love the look of this car. It presents with the classic long hood and short tail profile of supercars past, modernized with flow lines, low roof and greenhouse, but with additional edges and swoops and falls that give the car a look of motion even when stopped. To me, a hugely important component to the gestalt of the vehicle is its signature sound. Is there a better vehicular song than a

V-12 motor, both on start-up and on full acceleration? While mufflers do have their place in life (a concept apparently not agreed with by my 5:30 a.m.-departing financial-executive neighbor), the DB11’s song of the open road is as good as it gets. I love the sound of the V-12, which to me is part of making the driving experience more engaging. I don’t get a thrill when “driving” a four-wheeled iPhone so this car meets a lot of my needs just from the exhaust note alone.

Which brings us nicely to the performance category and it’s just fine, thank you very much. With the 600HP V-12 providing a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed right at 200 MPH, it will get the job done, whatever that job is. Let’s conclude with the driving impressions. Ensconced in the DB11 is to be swathed in leather, surrounded by luxurious touches here and there, bathed in the terrific sounds emanating from the resounding exhaust note and the Bang and Olufsen sound system (which is worth the price if only for the automatically slow-rising tweeter domes, magically appearing from the dash), this car was ready for whatever I threw at it, be it bumper-to-bumper traffic or a full blast (at some unnamed location— sorry, my mother may be reading this) Put otherwise, it’s an experience in rolling luxury with equal parts performance and comfort. Hit the start button, pull back on the right paddle shifter and away you go. It truly is a car for the senses.

TheHAUTE LISTAuto LEXUS LC 500 An LFA in LC clothing. LFA—those three letters cause auto cognoscenti’s eyes to light up, with dreams of a high-output V-10 redlining at 9,000 RPM, superb handling and incredible sound, especially as the fuel cutoff didn’t interrupt the banshees until 9.500 RPM. Lexus’ first full-on race car for the street, built between 2010 and 2012, tipped the scales at about 3,200 pounds and tipped the wallet at close to $400,000. It was a wonderful car to drive, so I am told—the closest I got to the driver’s seat was a high-speed hot-lap in 2012 around the Long Beach Grand Prix circuit, with piloti Scott Pruett as my wheelman. Now THAT’S a chauffeur! So when I had the opportunity to enjoy an “Infrared” LC 500 for a week when the car first came out, I jumped at the chance. I could tell from the stats that it would be a thrill and I was right: horses—471; 0-60 4.4 seconds; and top speed 168MPH. This clearly was not my father’s first Lexus (LS400) or even Dad’s second Lexus (GS400). In fact, the LC is a different breed altogether from the family sedans first produced in the late 1980s and early 1990s. If anything, the LC (“Luxury Coupe”) shares its DNA with the LFA.

LUXURIOUS touches around.

The LC comes in two flavors—V-8 and hybrid. Those interested in the hybrid can read elsewhere as I was focused on the V-8, though the hybrid does produce some respectable numbers, too—354 horsepower (total of gas and electric) and 0-60 in 4.7 seconds while delivering 35MPG highway. The hybrid’s base price is about $96,500. As these photos illustrate, the car is designed to look like it performs, as a supercar with a snarling spindle grille—there’s no mistaking this car when it’s coming at you. With the great exhaust report, luxurious interior, terrific sound system and exotic looks, the LC 500 is a car built for enjoyment. And at the same time, the base price of $92,000 compares very well to its competition. I really enjoyed my time with this four-seater coupe. It’s fast, agile, comfortable, responsive, elegant and just flat-out fun. As the Lexus gift to us in honor of its impending 30th anniversary, I say a resounding “thank you!”

While those living in the Hamptons have always felt like royalty, the actual Queen has arrived. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have bought a new house in East Hampton, and Hamptonites are all the better for it. The Carters have previously summered in the Hamptons through rentals, but this will be their first permanent residence in the area. The Pond House, as the estate was dubbed, sits on two acres of land, measuring at 12,000 square feet. The residence features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The space also sits directly on the Georgica Pond and beside a 17-acre meadow preserve. The home had previously stalled on the market for about eight years before being swept up by the Carters for $26 million. For all the Hamptonites out there, make your reservations at Pierre’s now, just in case the table next to you winds up being occupied by Queen Bey.

9 ULTRA VIOLET HOME PIECES TO ELEVATE YOUR DESIGN STYLE IN 2018 Late last year, Pantone announced its annual color for 2018: ultra violet. According to color experts, the purple hue is going to be everywhere. Kendra Frisbie, the president of DECASO, believes that the color choice is illustrative of the times we live in. “Historically, purple has been the color of visionaries calling for equality, so in a lot of ways, ultra violet is reflective of the climate of our world today,” Frisbie told Haute Living. “It feels hopeful, and because it’s bold and unexpected, is perhaps what we all need right now.” With 12 years at McGuire Furniture under her belt, Frisbie knows a thing or two about interiors. In her new role she oversees DECASO, the premier online marketplace for antique and modernist home decor. So why is ultra violet the shade of the moment? “Ultra violet has

an energy about it that is rarely found in just one color. Both bold and meditative, it makes a spiritual statement in a profound way,” Frisbie says. “Everyone is wild for this rich, saturated hue because it symbolizes royalty and luxury. In design, it adds an unexpected pop of color that can quickly add depth to a space.” While the easiest way to add the color to your design scheme is to paint an accent wall, Frisbie recommends “mixing it into a room through textiles, throw pillows, rugs, accent chairs or decorative accessories. It can make a space feel very current, rich and welcoming.” Below she shares her favorite ultra violet finds from DECASO.

Fox, restaurateur and founder of FOX Lifestyle Hospitality Group. “I imagined the seamstresses and tailors working on this very floor 70 years ago and wanted the decor to pay tribute to just that.” The Rag Trader features an underground piano cocktail bar, Bo Peep Cocktail & Highball Store, inspired by the mid-20th century heyday of the neighborhood when the area boasted the highest concentration of garment manufacturers in the world. At The Rag Trader, guests will be offered a creatively designed menu by Executive Chef Justin Ottervanger. Showcasing a selection of raw bar options, snacks, authentic pizzas, and plates ranging in size, the menu features signature dishes such as Sea Scallop Crudo, Rogue Smokey Blue Salad, Fried East Coast Oysters, Crispy Skin Salmon, Cauliflower ‘Steak’ and the 14oz Bone-in New York Strip. “The menu focuses on refined comfort food and is designed to allow multiple

types of dining experiences. Whether looking for a bite or quick drink with friends, a romantic dinner, or late-night pizza after a crazy night out, we have something for everyone,” said Ottervanger. Head downstairs to the intimate and opulent Bo Peep Cocktail & Highball Store, which pays homage to what was once a tailor’s fitting room. The menu draws inspiration from the ‘40s and ‘50s and consists of over 30 cocktails divided into fun and thematic categories. Beverage Director Evan Hawkins also expertly created the drink program, which boasts a selection of classic and modernly crafted cocktails, craft beers, as well as a thorough wine selection. “For Bo Peep, I wanted to take it back to a time when drinking was sexy and adventurous,” says Hawkins. “Piano keys dancing across the air, guests were dressed to impress and the perfect drink was in hand,” says Hawkins.

THE RAG TRADER is open for lunch and dinner daily, plus brunch on weekends: Sun-Thurs: 11 a.m. - 2 a.m. Fri-Sat: 11 a.m. - 4 a.m. Bo Peep Cocktail & Highball Store is open daily: Sun-Thurs: 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. Fri-Sat: 5 p.m. - 4 a.m. Location: 70 W 36th St, New York, NY 10018 FRIED EAST COAST OYSTERS are just one of the many delectable treats offered on the menu.

e’ve all been there: overindulging during the holidays (or the past year in general) and justifying it by the time-old resolution to eat more plants in the new year. But if we’re being honest, giving up the gourmet dishes we hate to love can be a buzzkill—or at least it was until plant-based fine dining became haute. We sat down with the world’s leading plant-based chef, Matthew Kenney, the mastermind behind 10 vegan restaurants throughout Los Angeles, Miami, New York, London and Bogota, Colombia, among others. The secret to the two-time James Beard Award nominee’s success? Transforming plant-based dining into a gourmet experience served in the chic, sexy environment we previously would have never associated with veganism.

27TH MONACO YACHT SHOW The most spectacular yacht show in the world Once again, I found myself at the Port Hercule touring over 125 mega yachts, amazed that The Monaco Yacht Show is indeed the Mecca of the yachting community. The show last year included the notable strong attendance of American and Russian clients and the largest and youngest fleet ever with 50 per cent of yachts less than two years old and an average length of 49m. As tens of thousands of visitors fought their way through four days of yachts on exhibit and marketing events, it’s important to pin down a certain type of clientele in this unique opportunity. Some 36,400 participants walked the electric-blue carpet with some invited via the organizer’s new Sapphire Experience

By night, the bright lights of Monaco formed a spectacular backdrop to over 150 private events. I hang out most of the nights at the Monaco Yacht Club for dinners and drinks with friends. But there was the annual gala party, where forward-thinking Heesen’s Home, Oceanco’s showstopper Jubilee and Italian masterpiece Seven Sins by San Lorenzo, swept up the awards. Lurssen hosted their party this time at the Monaco Yacht Club instead of one of their mega yachts. It’s not the same ambiance compared to the past Lurssen parties I attended on-board Solandge and Quattroelle. My “trophy yacht” is Lurssen’s Areti. Dubbed “a yachtsman’s yacht,” the 85-meter Areti was custom-designed and built for a Russian client with its layout oriented towards intimate and cozy spaces for family and friends. A stunning feat

This year, at the Design Miami/ fair, the coveted award went to New York-based architect Annabelle Selldorf and her team at Selldorf Architects; conceptual American artist Rashid Johnson; charitable organization 14+ Foundation; and Swiss architects Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein of Christ & Gantenbein.

Design is one of the most important elements…for Panerai. It’s what makes us different and a little bit exclusive.” He continued to explain the importance of the brand’s presfirst came here over 20 years ago.
