EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

PLAYING TO WIN

If you’re a fan of polo, you should be rejoicing this season. With our preeminent polo facility now under the venerable ownership of the United States Polo Association, attendance at games is exploding, and the sport is more exciting than ever. Case in point: In late October, the National Polo Center - Wellington hosted the XII FIP World Polo Championship, an electrifying competition among the world’s best polo teams. USA lost in overtime, but the team made history. It was the first time a woman—Hope Arellano— played in the tournament, and the first time the team consisted of two sets of siblings: Hope and her brother Agustín, and Nico and Lucas Escobar.

The Escobar brothers, who appear on our cover this month, may be young—Nico is 22, Lucas is 20—but they are really making a name for themselves. As members of a multigenerational polo dynasty, they were practically born with a mallet in their hands. It was only a matter of time before they would become forces to be reckoned with. Turn to “All in the Family” on page 112 to learn more about them and their polo family.

This month we also celebrate the women who are breaking stereotypes—and records. I invite you to meet the fierce 10-goaler Hazel Jackson; Hope Arellano, who is only 19 but plays with incredible strength and focus; Dawn Jones, who started playing for fun with her husband, actor Tommy Lee Jones, but has become one of the sport’s most notable female players; Shariah Harris, the first African American female professional player whose story is so inspiring; and multi-hyphenate Pamela Flanagan, a powerhouse and leader in women’s polo. Read all about them in “Polo’s Leading Ladies” on page 102.

Also on deck this month is a profile on the talented Joey Wölffer, who competes in Wellington’s show-jumping scene, but also designs her own clothing brand and co-owns a winery in Sagaponack, New York. It seems exhausting to move in three disparate worlds (all while being a mom of young kids), but Joey handles it all with grace and humor. Get to know this dynamo in “Along for the Ride” on page 130.

Wishing you a New Year full of inspiration and passion—perhaps with a little polo sprinkled

FIELD SIDE

I became aware of the field prowess and skill of our cover subjects early on at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Nico Escobar was a standout on Danny Walker’s 2017 Farmers & Merchants team. Holding a 1-goal handicap at the time, Nico was amazingly accurate with shots on goal from the field. Farmers & Merchants successfully battled Klentner Ranch for the Pacific Coast Open trophy that year in a double-overtime, eight-chukker nail-biter. Then in 2019, Farmers recaptured the trophy with a talented Escobar on the roster. This time, Nico’s brother, Lucas, was the secret weapon. He too demonstrated an uncanny knack for scoring from nearly any angle and from great distance. I look forward to watching the careers of these two brilliant players advance right here on the fields in Wellington.

Last summer the United States Polo Association (USPA) engineered the purchase of the International Polo Club in Wellington, renaming it the National Polo Center - Wellington. It’s an apt title: It was the site of the U.S. Open Polo Championship in 2004 and has been the “home club” for U.S. polo ever since. Palm Beach Illustrated congratulates the USPA on its effort to provide a permanent home for the premier tournaments in U.S. polo. Having seen the changes, including the new fields, that the USPA has brought about, we are very encouraged for the future of polo in Palm Beach County.

Most any sunny day from January to April, you are likely to find me field side at the National Polo Center, Grand Champions, Santa Rita, Valiente, Port Mayaca, or anywhere polo is being played around the Palm Beaches. Palm Beach Illustrated has been fortunate to sponsor several winning teams over the years, and we continue to track the progress of those wonderful players. I know that this issue will encourage you to discover more about the sport and the incredible athletes who make the game tick.

See you at the fields,

THE INSIDE TRACK TO EVERYTHING PALM BEACH

REVERIE, REVISITED

Few entities turn 75 and seem to be just getting started, but that’s the MO of The Colony. Following a summer closure, the iconic Palm Beach hotel reopened in November sporting an updated first floor and facade, plus dramatically reimagined guest rooms. Designed by Kemble Interiors and other posh partners, the rooms hold a capsule furniture collection by Society Social featuring artisan-crafted rattan and fauxbamboo pieces; walls painted in Farrow & Ball colors rereleased specifically for The Colony; heritage designs by renowned fabric house Schumacher; Matouk

linens and terry robes and slippers; Colony-branded toiletries formulated in collaboration with Gibson & Dehn; exclusive art by local photographers Nick Mele, Nathan Coe, and Chris Leidy; and commissioned paintings by North Carolina artist Sarah Boyts Yoder.

“What I cherish most about the new guest rooms is that they feel truly residential, and that was always our ultimate goal,” says Sarah Wetenhall, The Colony’s owner, president, and CEO. “Nothing is cookie-cutter or generic. Each room is a design discovery in its own right.”

Wish you could move in? Every room is now shoppable, so you can re-create the look in your own home. (thecolonypalmbeach.com) —Skye Sherman

TRADITIONS

FAMILY Affair

For mother and daughter Regina and Bryana LaTorre, family comes first—and they’re happy to spread the camaraderie of theirs. “Grandma Stella was the matriarch of our New York Italian household,” says Bryana. “She hosted daily lunches filled with savory food. Some of our fondest memories were [made] around the table, sharing stories and enjoying each other’s company over the most delicious homemade dishes.” That’s why, in May 2022, they launched Stellabellas Events, offering tastefully designed picnics for the perfect intimate party in the Palm Beach area as well as Orlando and Davenport. “We create these picnics to keep Grandma Stella’s warm spirit alive, sharing good food and love within an intimate space for your special event,” Regina says. (instagram. com/stellabellas_events) —S.S.

POP OVER TO PARIS

Being able to board the Brightline and step foot in Paris 12 hours later may seem wistful, but French Bee airline recently began operating three weekly nonstop flights (on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday) from Miami to Paris Orly Airport (ORY), which will increase to four times weekly in April. With introductory one-way fares starting at $281 in Basic Economy (or $641 in the 35seat Premium Blue section, the lowcost carrier’s answer to an upgraded experience with two meals, compli-

mentary beverage service, Premium cabin seat choice, line jump, priority boarding and luggage delivery, and more), French Bee is now the most wallet-friendly way to make the longhaul hop from the Magic City to the City of Light. (frenchbee.com) —S.S.

CHESS CHECK

CALL IT THEQUEEN’SGAMBIT EFFECT OR AN ESCAPE FROM THE DOMINION OF SCREEN TIME, BUT CHESS IS HAVING A MOMENT, AND THE NEW FERN STREET CHESS PARK (LOCATED AT 402 SOUTH DIXIE HIGHWAY IN WEST PALM BEACH) IS PROOF. OPEN FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET, THIS PUBLIC CHESS FORUM IS A FUN PLACE TO PRACTICE AND MEET LIKE MINDS. BRING YOUR OWN PIECES AND A TIMER OR USE ONE OF THE SETS AVAILABLE AT THE PARK. HERE, FIND THREE BASICS FOR BEGINNERS. (DOWNTOWNWPB.COM/ CHESSPARK)—S.S.

Each piece has a different level of power on the board, with pawns being the least valuable and queens being the most valuable. The king is invaluable because he can’t be captured, only checkmated. The way to win is by eliminating your opponent’s king.

As the game opens, your general goal is to develop your pieces (move them out from their starting squares and prepare for battle), gain control of the center of the board, and protect the king.

You can’t worry only about your own strategy; you must carefully consider what your opponent does before each move.

Eagerly EQUINE

Wellington is horse country, and horse country needs world-class facilities like Palm Beach Equine Clinic, where Dr. Scott Swerdlin serves as president.

Swerdlin is one of the lucky few who knew what he wanted to do from a young age—at just 8, he could already foresee a future as an equine veterinarian. Raised around horses by a polo-playing father, Swerdlin came by his passion organically. He studied at the University of Miami, graduated from veterinary school at Au-

burn University, and even served with the U.S. Air Force Veterinary Service before returning to Florida and joining forces with Palm Beach Equine Clinic.

Aside from providing industry-leading care in equestrian sport, Swerdlin enjoys playing polo and traveling with his wife, Amy, who co-manages the Palm Beach Equine Sports Complex. Intricately woven into the fabric of the community, the Swerdlins help make Wellington the horse mecca that it is. (equineclinic.com) —S.S.

HORSE HEALTH CARE REMINDERS FROM DR. SWERDLIN

THE IMPORTANCE OF HYDRATION: Living in the Florida heat year-round means equine owners should always pay attention to their horse’s water consumption. The average horse drinks between 5 to 10 gallons of water per day.

XTHE IMPORTANCE OF VACCINATIONS: The constant travel of competition horses from show to show makes proper vaccination protocols even more imperative as they can prevent horses from contracting lifethreatening infectious diseases.

THE IMPORTANCE OF EQUINE DENTISTRY: Dentistry in horses is vital because the mouth is the first part of the horse that is taking in and processing food. It is recommended to perform a dental exam on your horse at least every 12 months.

PONYING UP

The polo you know and love at the International Polo Club Palm Beach has returned but under new ownership. The United States Polo Association purchased the facility last summer, spent several months developing and improving the property, and renamed it the National Polo Center - Wellington. The facilities span five fields, the grandstand, and restaurants, plus a clubhouse, a social club, a swimming pool, a gym, and tennis courts. To the delight of fans, the winter schedule of the club’s inaugural year promises both new and returning tournaments, further cementing Wellington as the epicenter of polo in America. Mark your calendar for the 22-goal

ANIMAL INSTINCTS

AT THE HELM OF THE COUNTRY’S OLDEST NATIONAL HUMANE ORGANIZATION, ROBIN GANZERT ADVOCATES FOR ALL CREATURES

When Robin Ganzert isn’t traveling the world working to save species on the brink of extinction, she’s cuddled up with her own furry friends at her home in West Palm Beach. “I will never forget the special healing power of the bond with animals,” Ganzert says. “As a little girl growing up, we moved around a lot, so my best friends were my animals.”

As president and CEO of American Humane, Ganzert has devoted her life to protecting the well-being of animals across the globe and here in our backyard. “We are in a true biodiversity crisis where 50 to 70 percent of the animal species and plant species on the Earth today will not be here during our grandchildren’s lifetime,” Ganzert explains.

As a wildlife advocate, she spends her time educating, promoting awareness, and advocating for meaningful solutions to save threatened species. Most recently, Ganzert launched a global, first-of-its-kind, humane conservation program to ensure the welfare of the millions of animals in zoos and aquariums. “I want every animal to have the opportunity to have a humane life,” she says. “That’s why I do what I do.”

Ganzert’s work producing the award-winning docu-

mentary Escape from Extinction, narrated by Dame Helen Mirren, earned her the esteemed international Gorilla Prize, which honors people making strides to conserve endangered animals and preserve our planet for future generations. “It’s an incredible tribute to the many people I work with: my colleagues at American Humane,” Ganzert says. “We were able to tell the story of these animals in this beautiful way and, more importantly, educate millions who have seen it [about] the threats that our animal friends are facing.”

The award is on display at the newly opened American Humane animal sanctuary in West Palm Beach, where Ganzert is surrounded by other initiatives near and dear to her heart. “We’re able to rescue animals and train service dogs for wounded warriors,” she says. “I’m very proud to be a resident of Palm Beach County and to give back right here in our community.”

As a friend to all animals, Ganzert is committed to continuing her work educating the world about the threats of extinction. “I’m in the business of hope. I’m in the business of compassion and love as the CEO of American Humane, and I absolutely believe we can turn it around starting with projects right here at home.” (americanhumane.org) «

HOW TO SPROUT SEEDS

1. Add 1/4 cup seeds to a glass jar with cool water. (A mason jar works best.)

2. Cover with a sprouting lid or a cheesecloth and secure.

3. Leave for 24 hours.

4. Drain and rinse seeds in a colander. Place them back into the jar with a cheesecloth top. Place the jar on a kitchen counter that is out of direct sunlight.

5. Repeat the rinsing and draining process each day for five days.

6. After five days, rinse seeds in a bowl and use your hands to gently remove the hulls.

7. Allow the seeds to dry on a towel surface before eating.

THE POWER OF SEEDS

THESE TINY MORSELS PACK A NUTRITIOUS PUNCH

People have been talking about the power of seeds for thousands of years. In fact, Mayan and Aztec warriors used seeds as their sole source of food when traveling long distances. Considering a seed contains the embryo of a future plant, it is no wonder they are packed with nutrients and vitamins. Although small in size, seeds are great sources of protein and fi ber, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (the good ones), and omega-3 fatty acids. They can help balance blood sugar, maintain a healthy weight, lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.

Just adding 2 tablespoons of seeds to your diet each day can make a huge difference. Blend them into a smoothie or salad dressing, bake them into a bread or sweet treat, or sprinkle them on top of a salad, oatmeal, yogurt, or soup.

Sprouted seeds are particularly good for you. In this stage, the seeds have just begun to sprout or germinate through controlled soaking for a few days. This process breaks down some of the starch, making them easier to digest and the nutrients easier to absorb. You can buy sprouted seeds at most health food markets or sprout them at home yourself.

Read on for more tips and recipes.

THE HEALTHIEST SEEDS

Flax: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation.

Chia: Loaded with antioxidants, calcium, and fiber.

Quinoa: Rich in protein and magnesium. A cup contains 30 percent of the recommended daily intake of magnesium.

Sunflower: 2 tablespoons provide 50 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin E, an antioxidant that plays an important role within our bodies. Also rich in vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc.

Pumpkin: 2 tablespoons provide 40 percent of the

recommended daily intake of magnesium, which is necessary for maintaining gut health, proper digestion, and healthy levels of serotonin in the brain.

Hemp: One of the best sources of plant protein and packed with omega3s, vitamin E, and minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, and zinc. Just 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds contain 20 percent of the recommended daily intake of the immunity-boosting mineral zinc.

Basil: Basil seeds are chia’s top competitor, containing twice the fiber, potassium, calcium, and iron.

MANE Attraction

COOL TOOL

Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete ($600), Dyson, dyson.com

A styling tool that creates ringlets, beachy waves, smooth flips, and more using aerospace-inspired tech? Sign me up. Place the device near a section of hair and watch as it creates a mini vortex (that’s the Coanda Effect for you styling scientists), automatically wrapping your tresses around the barrel. The heat causes the strands to curl— without the risk of frizzing or frying associated with metal tools. —Kristen Desmond LeFevre, contributing editor

TRIED & TRUE

Moroccanoil Treatment Original ($48), Moroccanoil, moroccanoil.com

I’m pretty low maintenance in the hair department, but there’s one product I never skimp on: Moroccanoil. I apply the signature argan oil (a little goes a long way) to the ends of my damp hair before blow-drying, and my locks are always left shiny, smooth, and smelling amazing. —Melissa Puppo, contributing editor

CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT

Everdeen headband ($125), Deepa Gurnani, deepagurnani.com

As someone who has been rocking short hair for more than 15 years, I often opt for headbands to add a little pizzazz to a special occasion look. Deepa Gurnani has a range of artistic pieces—like this one with resin pearls, glass seed beads, and brass elements—that are handmade and affordable.

STRAIGHT TALK

Fluidissime spray ($42), Kérastase, kerastase-usa.com

In the pantheon of products, this is the one hair-care essential I can’t be without—whether in the salon, at home, or traveling. Sprayed on wet hair before blow-drying and styling, Fluidissime’s anti-frizz and heat-protecting ingredients keep my hair straight, smooth, and shiny in every type of climate. —Allison

DEEPLY ROOTED

SahaScalp Cooling Scalp Mud Mask ($34), Fable & Mane, sephora.com

Crafted with Ayurvedic powerhouses like neem to calm irritation, apricot oil to nourish and moisturize roots, and oxygen-rich sea silt to invigorate follicles, this hydrating scalp mask is a revitalizing step in any wash-day routine and an ode to centuries-old wisdom.

SHOW OF STRENGTH

Super Strength+ Everstrong Bonding Oil ($28), Fekkai, fekkai.com

When I read that Everstrong oil strengthens keratin bonds and repairs split ends after just one use, I was skeptical. But since I’d literally tried everything on the market for my damaged hair, I decided to give this a chance—and was shocked at the transformation. Everstrong delivers what it promises, and smells great, too. —Daphne

YOUR PASSPORT TO THE MOST FASCINATING CORNERS OF THE GLOBE

The Great Cruise COMEBACK

AFTER A LENGTHY PANDEMIC PAUSE, BIG-SHIP CRUISING IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE. WITH THIS GRAND RETURN COMES A SLEW OF EYE-CATCHING NEW SHIPS THAT SPEAK TO THE INDUSTRY’S EVOLUTION AND GROWING APPEAL. KITTED OUT IN MODERN DESIGNS, CUTTING-EDGE AMENITIES, ECLECTIC DINING SPACES, AND SINGULAR ENTERTAINMENT ZONES, THESE FRESHLY MINTED SHIPS ARE REWRITING THE CRUISE NARRATIVE. HERE, WE SPOTLIGHT TWO NEWCOMERS THAT EMBODY THE NEXT-LEVEL BIG-CRUISE EXPERIENCE.

Norwegian Prima

Five years and more than a billion dollars in the making, the justlaunched Norwegian Prima marks the first in an entire Prima class of ships by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL). The 143,535-ton, 20-deck, 1,646-stateroom megaship is packed with firsts—big and small—plus groundbreaking amenities catering to all ages and vacation types.

Recreation reaches new heights—literally—on the world’s only threelevel racetrack at sea, the Prima Speedway, which snakes around the ship’s upper decks. Below, discover a colossal outdoor game zone that features everything from a cozy dart bar to 3D Ping-Pong tables and the fastest (and scariest) slide in the industry, The Drop, a 10-story freefall from deck 18 to 8.

PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JANUARY 2023 89

Countering the white-knuckled thrills, serenity beckons in a multimillion-dollar sculpture garden (with installations by famed artist Alexander Krivosheiw) as well as at Infinity Beach, a resort-style expanse of infinity-edge pools and plush loungers. The Mandara Spa dazzles by design, underscored by an indoor waterfall that leads to a pair of relaxation pools, one cool, another warm.

A highlight of the ship’s 18 dining venues and 17 bars and lounges is Indulge, a verita-

ble food hall with eight globally inspired outposts. Another is Metropolitan, the cruise industry’s first sustainable cocktail bar, home to zero-waste libations crafted with commonly discarded ingredients (think: repurposed watermelon rind and surplus almond croissants made into orgeat syrup).

Yet, among all the exciting newness and achievements, what truly sets the Norwegian Prima apart is the fact that it has highest staffing levels and space ratio of any contemporary or premium cruise ship. She also carries the greatest variety of suite categories available at sea, including those in The Haven by Norwegian, a multistory enclave occupying prime real estate on the top decks.

The Haven comprises the ship’s best accommodations, from 368-square-foot penthouses to the 2,100-square-foot, three-bedroom Premier Owner’s Suite, plus a dedicated restaurant, library, bar, lounge, sundeck, and gravity-defying infinity pool. It promises the atmosphere and intimacy of a superlative small ship, and it’s here that the industry-leading staff-to-guest ratio and the luxury of space feel most palpable. A Haven-specific team, from butlers to concierges to maître d’s, ensures a five-star experience, while wide open spaces abound for the likes of sunbathing, lounging, or simply enjoying deep thoughts at sea. It’s

no wonder that those who stay in The Haven rarely leave, even at ports of call.

While enhancements and additions are erasing previous megaship stereotypes, some elements remain—just bigger and better. Those include the presence of a sprawling buffet, which is polarizing, to say the least, but it does feature some amazing Indian cuisine and barbecue specialties. There’s also a Vegasesque casino and a theater for nightly entertainment that’s anything but the cheesy cruise ship performances of yore. In fact, a high point of a recent sailing was a Broadway-caliber rendition of Tony Award–nominated Summer: The Donna Summer Musical starring American Idol finalist Kimberley Locke.

With the new Norwegian Prima, NCL brings a futuristic, floating, five-star city to life, branding the ship itself as an oceanfront destination. With a suite in The Haven and a plethora of innovative amenities at one’s disposal, big-ship cruising has never looked so fabulous. (ncl.com/cruise-ship/prima)

Celebrity Beyond

The latest in Celebrity’s Edge class series, Celebrity Beyond made her American debut

in November at Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades, which she’ll call home half of the year. (The other half she docks in Rome.) Enhancing the original 3D-engineered Celebrity Edge blueprint, the 104,600-ton Beyond is longer and taller than her predecessors, with an additional deck (now totaling 17), 179 more staterooms and suites (for a total of 1,646), and even more wow-factor moments.

The ship’s design stuns thanks to an excess of panoramic glass combined with sleek, personality-heavy spaces that bring the outdoors in. The multilevel Sunset Bar, for example, is a hybrid of an Italian beach club and a sexy Miami rooftop bar, with floor-to-ceiling glass that envelops the main dining area, fostering endless ocean vistas. Nearby, a rooftop garden presents an idyllic expanse for quieter cruise moments, while two double-story, martini-shaped hot tubs flank a sculpture-strewn lap pool. The openair Magic Carpet lounge slides along the edge of the ship, positioned off a different deck daily. And across the staterooms, multi-award-

winning British designer Kelly Hoppen has crafted soothing, nautical-inspired interiors.

Other big names help Beyond live up to her name, too. Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud debuts his first restaurant at sea, Le Voyage, serving elevated French cuisine. As Celebrity Cruises’ well-being advisor,

actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow contributes to the wellness programming and product lines found onboard. Finally, Captain Kate McCue, the first and only woman to be named captain of a mega cruise ship, has become a star attraction in her own right due to her recent television appearances and newly found Instagram fame.

The ship’s retail component also breaks barriers. Starboard Cruise Services, the leading cruise retailer and part of ultra-luxe LVMH company, has introduced a series of haute

boutiques across the ship. Shop for jewelry, watches, handbags, and accessories at a standalone outpost of Italian luxury brand Bulgari. Pick up handsome Louis Vuitton duffels and Montblanc writing instruments at the first men’s lifestyle boutique at sea, Mankind. Or check out new finds from Stella McCartney and Marni at Sense of Self and snag a vintage handbag at What Goes Around Comes Around.

In total, Celebrity Beyond ticks all the boxes of the next-gen cruise experience we’ve been searching for, inclusive of splashy design, pioneering amenities, stellar retail, and an incredible vibe. (celebritycruises.com/ cruise-ships/celebrity-beyond) «

STAYCATIONS

A Weekend at the Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale

SOUTH FLORIDA’S NEW PINNACLE OF OCEANSIDE LEISURE DELIVERS

HIGH DESIGN, GASTRONOMIC EXCELLENCE, AND FUN-IN-THE-SUN

Friday afternoon: Check into the 189-key oceanfront property, which was modeled after a luxury ocean liner. Glass-lined balconies give way to soothing interiors by famed London-based firm Tara Bernerd & Partners. The rooms themselves merge Fort Lauderdale’s yachting heritage with mid-century modern panache, underscored by pale linen walls, silver Roman travertine–finished floors, and walnut-trimmed furnishings.

Friday night: Indulge in a culinary adventure at signature restaurant Evelyn’s, where chef Brandon Salomon and his all-star team raise the bar on eastern Mediterranean cuisine. Enjoy classics perfected plus contemporary remixes in a seductive, Martin Brudnizki–designed space. Gastronomic highlights include the truffle hummus (laced with black winter truffle, organic mushrooms grown in Loxahatchee, and white truffle oil), the tangy pear and apple fattoush, and the wood-smoked, pomegranate-glazed Ora King salmon skewers.

Saturday morning: Rise and shine for yoga on the Ocean Sun Deck at 7:30 a.m. or try televised meditation through in-room wellness programming. Grab coffee and a fresh croissant at the lobby café, Honey Fitz.

Saturday afternoon: Lounge poolside at

the family or adults-only pool (depending on your company), cozy in a canopy daybed or an ocean-fronting lounger. Look forward to complimentary treats like frosé, mezze cups, and ice-cold, blueberry-scented face towels. Order a Portside Mojito (the traditional spiked with a touch of matcha) and a light lunch of poke bowls, fresh salads, or ceviche.

Saturday night: Dine again at Evelyn’s; as Fort Lauderdale’s hottest table, it’s highly worth a second go-round. However, if desire leads you off property, pop next door to Japanese-Korean restaurant Takato, or take a short walk to Lona Cocina & Tequileria, a concept by celebrated Mexican chef Pablo Salas.

Sunday morning: Relax, feet in the sand, at the dedicated Four Seasons beach area across from the hotel. Request a picnic basket of brunch or lunch items from Honey Fitz to be delivered straight to your beach chair or daybed.

Sunday early afternoon: Cap the weekend with a rejuvenating treatment at the spa. The Signature Ebb & Flow Massage combines sound bowl meditation and a massage of fluid, long-stroke technique mimicking the movement of water. After, linger in the Himalayan salt sauna and the aromatherapy essence steam room, followed by a reawakening in the Vichy shower. (fourseasons. com/fortlauderdale) «

Stop by the spa for the Signature Ebb & Flow Massage, a 90-minute service that includes sound bowl meditation.

Magnificent SEVEN

It’s time to recalibrate how we think about luxury cars. No longer is it about purring 12-cylinder engines, smooth-shifting 10-speed automatics, and having more leather than a Hermès boutique. All you’ll need is one drive in the 2023 all-electric BMW i7 to know that the luxury automobile rule book has not only been torn up, but it’s been unceremoniously tossed in the dumpster too.

This is the new benchmark in passenger car refinement, ride smoothness, and interior comfort. Did I mention the jaw-dropping 31-inch Theater Screen? At the tap of a button, this mega-monitor folds down out of a recess in the roof lining. It can stream your favorite programs courtesy of Amazon Fire TV connectivity, playing through the car’s 655-watt, 18-speaker Bowers & Wilkins surround sound.

Want a true IMAX experience? Opt for the B&W Diamond system and get 36 speakers, 1,965 watts of power, and integrated seat-back “exciters” that jiggle your spine in time with every cinematic explosion, earthquake, and train wreck. And to really feel like you’re inside a Gulfstream G500 biz jet, check the box for the Executive Lounge package to receive the most complex passenger front seat ever installed in

a vehicle. It slides and tilts like some contouring Transformer, reclining to 42.5 degrees and producing a footrest to support those weary dogs. This i7 (or i7 xDrive60, to give the car its full title) is the flagship of an improved BMW 7-series lineup that includes a V8-powered 760i and an upcoming plug-in hybrid version. But it’s this new electrified i7 that is going to fire up the imaginations of potential buyers the world over. Much of that will come down to its remarkable electric power train. Using similar hardware that debuted in the iX compact electric SUV, it packs a combined 536 hp and stump-pulling 549 lb-ft of torque from electric motors in the front and rear. This nearly 6,000-pound

96 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED JOURNEYS
BMW’S 2023 ALL-ELECTRIC I7 FLAGSHIP SETS A NEW BENCHMARK FOR AUTOMOBILE LUXURY HIGH ROAD

leviathan can catapult from standstill to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, and it won’t stop accelerating until it hits the electronic limiter at 130 mph.

Tucked away beneath the floor, the i7’s lithiumion battery provides 101.7 kWh of useable energy. Need to get to grandma’s house in a hurry?

The EPA gives the car an official range estimate of 318 miles, though find yourself a 195-kW DC fast charger and you should be able to add 80 miles of range in 10 minutes—just long enough to check emails and sip a latte. And BMW is providing owners with three years of unlimited charging sessions at Electrify America stations.

But this new i7 isn’t just any straight-line rocket ship; it’s also a remarkable thing to pilot when the road turns curvy. A mix of standard air springs, adjustable dampers at all four corners, and a half-ton battery pack mounted low makes for near perfectly flat cornering. Add to all that gloriously precise steering, leech-like grip from 21-inch rubber fitted to our tester, and brakes that can stop time. For a car that stretches 212 inches bow to stern—the same as a Cadillac Escalade—the i7 is amazingly fun to drive.

Those in the front can ogle the i7’s curved glass display, which sprawls across 27 inches and looks more like a piece of art floating on

its slender brackets. But regardless of where you sit, the i7 is a spectacular place to spend a journey. And while leather is certainly available, there’s also a gorgeous steely-gray, cashmere-wool fabric you won’t be able to pass up.

With all this style and substance, the new i7 is certainly a deal at $120,295. However, in typical BMW fashion, all those irresistible options jack up the final price. Our loaded test car topped out at $156,595. But as arguably the Ultimate Electric Driving Machine, it sets a lofty new standard that others will find hard to beat. «

HIGH SEAS

INTO THE DEEP

Picture this: You’re Captain Nemo at the controls of your very own submarine, exploring the briny deep, communing with sea monsters, unearthing sunken treasure—and all for the price of a Ferrari.

This fantasy is possible when you get behind the controls of the remarkable new Nemo submersible from Holland’s U-Boat Worx. Offered as either a one- or two-seater, with a dive rating of 330 feet, it’s currently the only private, production-built sub in the world.

Launched, literally, in 2021, the first Nemos sold for more than a million bucks. But with production ramping up, the company has slashed the price of the one-person Nemo to $545,000, and the two-person to $590,000— roughly the cost of a new Ferrari SF90 Stradale with a few options.

“The beauty of the Nemo is that with a little training, anyone can drive one,” says Erik Hasselman, U-Boat Worx’s commercial director. “If you can handle a joystick, you can control it. It’s like scuba diving without getting wet.”

So, who’s buying a Nemo, or at least considering it? According to Hasselman, that would be superyacht owners, who can crane one into the water as they do a tender. But the Nemo also appeals to boatless mortals. In fact, U-Boat Worx has developed a heavy-duty trailer so you can tow your Nemo behind a Range Rover and launch it at any marina boat ramp.

Size wise, the sub is no Red October. It’s just 9 feet long, 7 and a half feet wide, and 5 feet tall. It takes up less space than a couple of Jet Skis. At around 4,600 pounds for the single-seat Nemo 1, U-Boat Worx claims it is the lightest manned submersible ever conceived.

The design is by the company’s in-house team in Breda, Holland, and was inspired by sports cars. Yes, there’s a little bit of new Corvette in there, especially in the side openings. That curvy bodywork (available in 10 col-

98 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED JOURNEYS
MEET NEMO, THE NEW MINI SUB YOU CAN DRIVE YOURSELF

ors) wraps around a 4-inch-thick acrylic sphere, with access through a top-mounted hatch. Inside, you sit in hip-hugging, diamond-quilted bucket seats that could have been pulled out of a Bentley.

Power comes from a bunch of joystick-controlled electric thrusters juiced by a bank of lithium-ion batteries. At full charge, they can power the Nemo for up to 8 hours at breakneck speeds of around 3 knots. Hey, you’re there for the view, not to water ski.

And for the water-wary, there’s no shortage of fail-safes. Go deeper than 330 feet and the sub will automatically rise to a safer level. Experience a sudden panic attack and there’s a panic button that rushes you back up to the surface.

Of course, there’s no way the builder will let anyone take the controls without some serious instruction. You’ll need to complete an intensive two-week course at the company’s Sub Center on the reef-ringed tropical island of Curaçao, just north of Venezuela. After 20 training dives and lots of lessons on safety, oxygen levels, and not getting wrapped up in seaweed or anchor chains, you’ll walk away with full certification.

Even though that $545,000 sticker represents a major price cut, it’s still a lot of green. One arguably more appealing alternative is to buy a Nemo

joint membership. A one-eighth share of a Nemo 2 (based out of Curaçao) will set you back around $80,000 for 41 days of use per year, with annual running costs of about $16,500; that covers all maintenance, insurance, an annual survey, launch and recovery, post-dive cleaning, and storage.

U-Boat Worx started back in 2005 and has so far built more than 60 submersibles of all sizes, with most of the earlier ones going to deepsea exploration organizations, cruise ship operators, and underwater film production companies. Its aim is to have 1,000 subs in operation by 2030.

“There’s nothing more liberating or fun than diving into the underwater world in the safety and comfort of your own Nemo,” adds Hasselman.

And unlike with a Ferrari, you probably won’t get a speeding ticket. «

POLO’S LEADINGLadies

Throughout history, there have been women who refuse to take no for an answer when it comes to competing in traditionally maledominated sports. Polo is no exception. Today’s vibrant, multitalented female polo players owe a lot to pioneer Sue Sally Hale, who disguised herself as a man for two decades to blaze a trail into the U.S. Polo Association, which finally admitted her as the first female member in 1972. Since then, thousands of women have taken to the field as players, team owners, trainers, coaches, and mentors, competing globally at the highest levels. Here, we profile five who are leading the charge on the polo field and making a difference within the sport at-large.

HAZEL JACKSON

It’s never easy reaching the pinnacle of a sport, and Hazel Jackson knows it’s even harder to stay there. “It means my life basically revolves around my sport,” says the 32-year-old 10-goaler. “I do make a lot of sacrifices socially.”

As a professional polo player, Jackson trains and plays 11 months of the year. “I don’t exactly have an off-season,” she notes. “I have a month in-between the Argentine and U.K. season.” During that rare hiatus, she tries to visit the beach, do yoga, and see family and friends.

Growing up in a “horsey” family in the small town of Lymington in Hampshire, England, Jackson began riding pony club polo when she was 9 or 10 and hasn’t stopped since. She’s competing this winter in Wellington—her third year with the Hawaii Polo Life team—and will play in the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship.

Her career highlights include winning the Argentine Women’s

Open Polo Championship twice and the Royal Windsor 15-Goal Mixed Tournament in 2019 with the United Arab Emirates team. Queen Elizabeth herself presented the trophy. Jackson has also captained the English Ladies Polo Team numerous times.

She says she has many role models in polo, but she credits Sheikha Maitha, Lucas Monteverde, and Jacinto Crotto of the UAE team with inspiring her to do better. “I’m really very competitive, so I am always wanting more. [I am] always wanting to improve and, most importantly, investing all of my fees into my string of horses.”

Her favorite horse, a Brazilian mare named Kila, retired in 2022, but the varied and unique aspects of competing in polo—including the reliance on an animal that has to be trained—keep her interested and driven.

“The sport is incredible,” says Jackson. “I love what I do and feel blessed that I have this opportunity.”

Shariah Harris, the first African American woman to compete in the Silver Cup tournament, began riding at the age of 8 and remains passionate about the sport of polo.
RALPH

SHARIAH HARRIS

She’s only 24, but Shariah Harris has made a big impact in the historically white, maledominated world of polo. In 2017, at the age of 19, she was already considered a trailblazer after becoming the first African American woman to compete in the high-goal Silver Cup tournament with the Postage Stamp Farm team. The year before, as a high school senior, she was the U.S. Polo Association’s National Interscholastic Player of the Year.

“I didn’t see myself as a trailblazer initially, but as I started to hear it from other people, I began to acknowledge it meant more to others,” says Harris. “At first, all I wanted to do was play.”

Currently, Harris, a 6-goaler in indoor arena polo, doesn’t play as much as she’d like because she’s busy starting a career. After graduating from Cornell University, where she was captain of the women’s polo team her sophomore through senior years and led the team to the national semifinals, she decided to pursue nursing and now works in the operating room at Lankenau Medical Center, just outside her native Philadelphia. “I would love to play on a team this winter, but most definitely, polo will always be a part of my life,” she says.

Harris began riding at 8 years old, when her single mom took a wrong turn in a park and led her carload of three kids straight into the Work to Ride (WTR) program for innercity youth. Founded in 1994, WTR aims to empower its participants through horsemanship, equine sports, and education. Since that fateful day when Harris discovered WTR, polo has impacted her life in ways she could never

have imagined.

“It’s the reason I went to Cornell,” she says. “It also meant I got to travel for the first time out of the country—out of the state, even. Without polo, I wouldn’t have had as many life experiences or been able to meet and interact with so many different people.”

PAMELA FLANAGAN

Multi-hyphenate Pamela Flanagan (she’s a 5-goaler in women’s polo, a horse rescue advocate, a model/brand ambassador for Hawaii Polo Life, and an attorney with Flanagan Bilton) knows you can’t have it all—at least, not all at once.

“My priorities are constantly shifting, but I always maintain involvement in all aspects of my life,” she says.

2022, with the team she assembled for Hawaii Polo Life) now has a new focus to add to the mix: her fiancé, Louis Devaleix, an entrepreneur and fellow polo player whom she met in Wellington in March 2022. They plan to make their year-round home in Palm Beach.

Flanagan, 32, began riding ponies “at a little barn down the street” and took her newfound passion with her to boarding school at Culver Academies in Indiana, participating in every sport involving a horse. While attending Southern Methodist University for undergraduate studies and later law school, she and another student formed the

women’s polo team.

After graduation, she needed to find an inexpensive horse to train for polo and that led to her discovery of the gruesome horseslaughter business. “It’s outlawed in the U.S., so they truck these horses to Mexico or Canada under horrible conditions,” she says. “There’s a lot of suffering.”

She rode her first rescue, Stella, in the 2019 U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship.

Flanagan is committed to riding in the U.S. Open in Wellington this March, looking for another consecutive win for her team. “Polo will always be part of my life to some degree, even when I’m not competing at the highest level.”

HOPE ARELLANO

Hope Arellano was destined to ride. Not only because she’s a fourth-generation professional polo player who was born in polo-centric Wellington, but because her mother, Meghan Arellano, played (and won) a tournament when she was six months pregnant with her daughter. Before she was 10, Hope knew she’d found her calling.

Today, the 19-year-old 8-goaler is a global brand ambassador for the U.S. Polo Assn. clothing company. In 2021, she made her debut in the prestigious Argentine Open Women’s Polo Championship as the only American woman to compete that year. At age 14, she became the youngest player ever to win the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship, playing with team San Saba alongside Dawn Jones.

Family is still at the center of the sport for Hope. Every spring and fall, she returns to her native Aiken, South Carolina, her home when not traveling exten-

sively for the sport. She spends winters in Wellington on her grandfather’s farm with her two older brothers, who are also professional polo players.

Hope’s mother no longer plays but her father, former professional player Julio Arellano, was the coach for the USA team in the XII Federation of International Polo (FIP) World Polo Championship that took place in Wellington this fall. Hope made history at this tournament, too, when she became the first woman ever to represent the United States in the series.

Off the field, Hope enjoys tennis, but her overriding passion is animals, with the family farm in Aiken providing shelter to a variety of rescues. Her favorite part of polo? No question: the horses.

“You create a bond with each and every one,” she says. “Anyone who knows polo knows you’re with horses every day and you never have a day off. But I feel I have so much to learn in the sport and I want to play for as long as I can.”

DAWN JONES

Growing up in San Antonio, Texas, Dawn Jones was familiar with the back of a horse. “I rode as a passenger,” she jokes. “I could have been a sack of potatoes.”

It wasn’t until she was working as second assistant camera operator and publicity photographer for actor Tommy Lee Jones, whom she met on the set of the 1995 TNT movie The Good Old Boys, that she discovered polo.

The couple married in 2001, and Dawn admits she was first interested in the sport because of Tommy. “In the beginning, my ambitions were to do something with Tommy that we could share, because the film industry is not conducive to lasting marriages,” she says. “We love the cinema and all aspects of it, but polo is our binding passion.”

Now a 5-goaler, Dawn played in the Argentine Women’s Open Polo Championship in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and won the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship in 2011 and 2017. She looks forward to an active season, including the U.S. Open in March.

At 58, Dawn’s ambitions are to continue to improve at polo, be a positive role model, and help young women advance in the sport. She sponsors an annual three-day clinic for the San Antonio Polo Club at the San Saba Polo Club’s arena and at the two polo fields

on the Fleming Springs Ranch that she and Tommy own in San Saba, Texas.

Dawn says she and her husband will never abandon their passion for polo, even when they no longer compete. “When I met Tommy, he said, ‘I want to introduce you to my polo family,’ and it’s true. It is a family, and I will always try to do what I can to help that family.” «

ALL IN THE FAMILY

The Escobars’ passion for polo transcends generations

Dreams can come true. Just ask brothers Nico and Lucas Escobar, who not only rode side by side in the XII Federation of International Polo (FIP) World Polo Championship, but they did so in their hometown of Wellington.

After conquering defending champs Argentina during the semifinals—with Nico scoring the winning goal in overtime—the underdog USA team dueled ferociously with Spain for the gold. Lucas played “lights-out polo,” while Nico was the team’s “goal-scoring machine,” with six total, remarked Global Polo TV’s Toby Wayman.

But with 30 seconds to go, Spain tied the match at 10-10, forcing the game into sudden-death overtime. Spain then scored from 80 yards out. Team USA had come within a horse’s hair of winning it all.

“It’s harder to lose by one goal than six, but I got over it,” says Nico. “I was so happy to make the finals.”

“They played so well and with such

heart,” says their mother, Georgette. “It was an epic team that made history. Never had the finals been played by two sets of siblings.” (The others were the Escobars’ longtime friends Hope and Agustin Arellano.)

As brothers who have played together since they could sit on a horse and hold a mallet, Nico and Lucas, now 22 and 20, respectively, instinctively know where each other is on the field. Their talent and tenacity have made Nico a 5-goaler and Lucas a 4-goaler, with a 10-goal handicap being the sport’s absolute top.

“It’s total dedication,” says Lucas. “Every decision I make is impacted by polo.”

Indeed, just two hours after the final match on November 6, Nico jetted off to Argentina. Lucas followed the next day. They remained there through early December to practice and learn from the world’s best players. “Argentina is where you really improve yourself,” Nico says.

As sons of former 8-goaler Luis

Polo is our life. They want to be at the top, and we will do everything in our power to get them there.” Georgette Escobar

Escobar and grandsons of Francisco Escobar, who opened Wellington’s Santa Clara Polo Club in 1984, the brothers inherited their obsession. “It’s in their DNA,” Georgette says.

Born in Costa Rica, Luis settled in Wellington at age 17 to play professionally. Three years later, he met Georgette. Their sons grew up following Luis’ polo seasons, from Santa Barbara to England to Argentina. Nico and Lukie, as his family calls him, dragged pintsize mallets while they learned to crawl. As they got older, those tiny mallets grew too, and they’d often play foot polo with each

other and their friends—something they continue to do to this day, their mother says.

“They’ve been surrounded by horses and polo since they were born,” explains Luis, who now runs the Santa Clara Polo Club. “They had toy mallets and pony pillows in their cribs and were on horses before they could walk.”

“Polo is our life,” Georgette says. “They want to be at the top, and we will do everything in our power to get them there.”

Yet even with such fierce dedication, Luis has made riding and polo fun for his sons. “If

they’re not having fun, you’re going about it the wrong way,” he says.

By the time Nico and Lucas were 6, their father was letting them ride and gallop without a lead line. “The sense of freedom and synergy, just me and the horse, is the feeling that keeps me playing polo,” Lucas says.

“Riding is therapeutic,” Nico continues. “You feel the wind on your face and forget any problems.”

While their dad is their hero, their joy has been playing together as brothers. “Nico always took me under his wing and looked out for me,” Lucas says. “We’re best friends and teammates for life.”

“We’re always together,” Nico says. “He’s one of the funniest guys I know and the person I trust most in this world.”

While both brothers stand 6 feet tall, their parents point out that they have their own unique skills. Nico is calm, mellow, and quiet, “taking after his father,” says Georgette. He has an innate talent, superb handeye coordination, and “a great feel for the horses,” Luis adds.

“You have to keep a cool head,” Nico says. “When things are tight, stay with the basics: Go to the mallet and hit the ball.”

Lucas is polo’s version of a worker bee, his mother notes. “He’ll open doors for his team, while taking someone else out of play.”

When not on the polo field, the brothers lift weights and play soccer, basketball, and stickball. They often end their days with a soak in their jacuzzi. “While it’s great for your body, we also sit and crack jokes,” Nico says. “Polo is just a game. You’ve got to be happy.”

The brothers also use their downtime to watch matches and study players’ moves and horses. They replay videos of their dad’s peak performances, too. “He could crush the ball,” Nico says.

Lucas describes his dad as his “main teacher in the sport and in my life. I ask him and my grandfather not just about polo but anything. They give me perspective, confidence, and amazing advice.”

But admiration aside, Lucas does savor beating his dad in practice. “If he wins, he sees it as a teaching moment. If I win, it’s a great feeling because I’ll have caught him by surprise.”

Practice isn’t the only time that it’s Escobar versus Escobar. When the brothers play against each other—as they did in the Gauntlet of Polo Gold Cup semi-finals in 2021—it’s hard on Georgette. “I stayed home,” she recalls. “It was so emotional. Lukie ended up winning.”

“Nico hates it, but he gets over it pretty quickly,” Lucas says of besting his brother. “By the time we get home, everything’s fine. Family comes first.”

Otherwise, Georgette is there—and she’s probably the loudest person on the field, clanging bells and beating drums, Nico says. “I love her support. She’s also the best mom ever. I can talk about anything with her.”

“My role is being their No. 1 fan,” Georgette says. “I’m the loudest girl in polo. I cheer my heart out.”

Her husband says she runs a cheerleading section of 50 to 70 people, and she was in full form at the FIP World Polo Championship. “It’s customary in other countries to make a lot of noise,” Luis says. “She took care of that for Team USA.”

The Escobar brothers make their own noise by playing in a rock band, with Lucas on guitar and Nico on drums. They practice in bandmate and former polo player Tenzin Tognini’s home, in a now soundproof converted garage. Prior to the renovation, a neighbor complained about the noise and aptly named the group The Local Burdens.

On the polo field, however, they’re anything but a burden—especially when playing together.

“We definitely turned heads and proved ourselves by beating Argentina,” Lucas says of the FIP World Polo Championship. “They were the favorites, and we left everything on the field. Overtime is anyone’s game. One lucky bounce can determine who wins. We got lucky against Argentina, and Spain got lucky against us.”

“Welcome to my bleeding ulcer,” Luis says of that game against Spain. “Watching them play isn’t as easy as when I was playing. But I’m ready for it. This is their time.” «

Joey Wölffer dreams big in business and competitive show jumping

Joey Wölffer is a dedicated multitasker. On any given day, the fashion entrepreneur, vineyard co-owner, and year-round equestrian is juggling clothing and wine concepts, show jumping, and mothering her two young daughters, Nell and Evie.

“I am in awe of Joey’s energy,” says her longtime friend Jessie Randall, founder of the fashion company Loeffler Randall. “While she is creative and a strong businesswoman who can’t sit still, she is genuine and down-to-earth, a woman who has it all.”

Joey owns, manages, and designs for her own fashion label, Joey Wölffer Reworked. She splits her year between

her winter residence in Wellington and her home in Sag Harbor, the chic Hamptons town where she has an eponymous fashion boutique that is a mix and match of luxe jewelry, accessories, and clothing, complete with international vintage offerings.

With her older half-brother, Marc Wölffer, Joey owns the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, New York. Their late father, German-born venture capitalist Christian Wölffer, started the winery in 1988, and the siblings took over the business in 2013. They quickly introduced the brand’s successful Summer in a Bottle Long Island Rosé, producing 1,530 cases that year. By 2022, production

of Summer in a Bottle Long Island and Côtes de Provence had climbed to 73,000 cases. Summer in a Bottle is one of the estate’s five rosés being featured this year at the Winter Equestrian Festival at Wellington International.

But for all her business ventures, Joey still carves out time for one of her greatest joys: horses. She spends at least one hour a day, five days a week riding horses and improving her competitive jumps. Joey, Marc, and their sister, Andrea, own 70 horses that live at a 100-acre equestrian center on Wölffer Estate—and a few members of the stable make the annual winter pilgrimage to Wellington alongside Joey.

“I love riding and jumping,” says Joey, who started riding at age 6. “It is a passion, and [it is] also therapeutic for me because I am always moving and restless. We had a stable before we had a winery, and now everything is connected on our Sagaponack acres.”

Born in New York City, Joey got her drive and creativity from her parents. Her mother, English-born Naomi Marks, is a former jewelry designer for Harry Winston and the heiress to Marks & Spencer, the British multinational retailer. Joey’s father made his money in real estate, before passing away in late 2008 following a swimming accident off the coast of Brazil. News accounts described him as a bon vivant who spoke six languages, made millions, and was larger than life.

“Dad was difficult, a fighter and risk-taker,” says Joey. “Mom is creative and private, and [she] encouraged hard work.”

When Joey was 9, the family moved to Sagaponack to pursue life in the country. She later attended boarding school at The Taft School in Connecticut and spent her summers as a teen in service jobs, hostessing, and working at a camp. After graduating from Vanderbilt University in 2004 with a degree in human and organizational development, she relocated to London, where she became the head designer of fashion jewelry at Meems. But, she says, she was lonely in London and returned to New York after just under a year.

Restless and ready to roll, she began working 12-hour days in design and production in the jewelry department for Accessory Network, a leather and accessories company, before landing another corporate fashion job with Jones Apparel Group. In 2008, she met her now-husband, Max Rohn, while waiting on a platform at a train station in Jamaica, Queens.

“We were two tall people standing there when he asked if I was going to the beach,” Joey recalls. “We chatted, learned we both had German dads, and found things we had in common. We got close quickly when dad died shortly after we met, and I knew I was going to marry him.”

A year before her 2011 wedding, Joey was ready to embrace her fashion dreams and start her own business. In 2010, she quit Jones to start a clothing venture called Styleliner Truck, a novel luxury accessories boutique on wheels.

“I stayed with Jones as a consultant for a year because it takes a hungry person to try something risky like this alone,” she says. “It was crazy getting the truck [and] designing it, then even more challenging being a pioneer of fashion trucks because I ran into obstacles.”

Where to park the truck, for example, was an issue. Police would try to keep her off New York streets, so she had to devise ways to bring her fashion to customers. “I started going to the homes of celebrities, hedge fund owners, and to birthday parties,” Joey says of her nomadic approach. “I was young, hardworking, and eager to succeed.”

In 2013, life got even busier when she dove headfirst into the wine business. “At first I was hesitant about the winery because I didn’t want to copy dad—I wanted to create my own life,” she says. “But after working out the logistics of partnering with my European-based brother, I got excited about expanding the family business, and at the same time I continued to pursue my fashion dreams.”

But, in 2015, after driving the Styleliner Truck around the United States for five years, Joey realized it had become too much of a burden. She decided to change her fashion direction.

“I broke down on the side of the road near Boston at 3 a.m. while pregnant,” she relays. “That was enough for me. I opened the brick-

and-mortar store in Sag Harbor, which was a better fit [for me] as a mother. It was easier all the way around.”

The following year, Joey and Marc opened nearby Wölffer Kitchen Amagansett, a restaurant serving seasonal food paired with Wölffer wines. Fast-forward to today, and Joey is committed to all her professional pursuits, on top of being a wife, mother, and equestrian.

“Joey has an amazing, global, creative brain to dream big yet keep her feet on the ground,” says her friend Sarah Wetenhall, owner, president, and CEO of The Colony Hotel on Palm Beach and a New York resident. “She is practical with a big heart and has a lot of empathy for others. She is unique and impressive, and [she] actually feeds off of energy and being busy.”

Joey also has the support of her husband, who not only serves as CEO of Wölffer Estate Vineyard but also encourages her to pursue her equestrian interests. “Max is the best,” Wetenhall adds. “He is the rock to make Joey’s energy flourish.”

As a competitive jumper, Joey is always trying to improve and exceed her limits in the same way she does in business. She is constantly practicing her jumping skills and competes year-round in the Northeast and Wellington. “I want bigger jumps,” she says. “I focus on the process. Plus, I am happy that my daughter Nell also loves horses.”

Always the entrepreneur, Joey enjoys Palm Beach enough to open a pop-up of her fashion boutique here and is currently looking for a location. (She had a store briefly at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach but closed it during the pandemic.) She acknowledges that she’s had a good life and many opportunities. She takes nothing for granted and will continue to build her businesses while giving more to others, especially favored charities like the Robin Hood Foundation and the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center.

“I look around and appreciate where and who I am,” she says. “It is important to stay true to me while doing more for others in the coming years.” «

IS A STANLEY CUP IN THE CATS’ CARDS? MATTHEW TKACHUK AND ALEKSANDER BARKOV ARE LEAVING IT ALL ON THE ICE TO BRING HOME HOCKEY’S BIGGEST PRIZE.

SHOTS

PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JANUARY 2023 137
Inset: Florida Panthers’ center and team captain Aleksander “Sasha” Barkov and winger Matthew Tkachuk in their home jerseys. Right: Barkov waits his turn during practice drills.

It’s 80 degrees and sunny outside FLA Live Arena. But inside, on the ice—where winger Matthew

and center Aleksander

“Sasha” Barkov are practicing with the rest of their Panthers teammates—it’s a downright frigid 25 degrees. They don’t seem to feel it under their pads, jerseys, helmets, and skates. Watching them run through drills, it’s hard to comprehend how guys so built, wearing such bulky gear, balanced on nearly razor-thin blades of metal are as graceful and nuanced as they are powerful and aggressive.

It can be tricky to tell the players apart in their unmarked practice jerseys (if you squint hard enough you can spot their numbers on the backs of their helmets), but after watching the action with your face pressed against the plexiglass barrier, you start to see the differences. Barkov is all about finesse. He’s what’s known as a “two-way player,” who can rock both the defensive and offensive sides of the game. “I’m always trying to be relied on in any situation we come across,” Barkov says. Tkachuk, on the other hand, is a passion player. “I play a very offensive-minded game,” he says. “I love having a puck. I love making plays. I’m around the net and I can score those gritty types of goals.”

This dynamic duo represents the Panthers’ two biggest superstars on a team that’s a veritable constellation unto itself—and that’s just what the team’s new head coach, Paul Maurice, was looking for in 2022.

Having recently stepped down from a nine-season coaching gig with the Winnipeg Jets, Maurice was taking a break on his sofa and watching some games on television. “At heart, I’m a hockey fan,” he says. “I was no

I JUST REALLY WANT TO BE IN A PLACE THAT HAS THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN. AND FOR ME, THAT’S THIS PLACE.”
—Matthew tkachuk

longer confined to watching my next opponent, so for the first time in a long time, I got to watch the teams that I thought were fun to watch.”

Maurice says he kept pausing his channel surfing whenever he spotted the Panthers on-screen. “There was lots of speed, lots of skill, lots of great personalities on the team,” he recalls. “It was just exciting as hell.”

When Maurice’s youngest son was accepted into law school at the University of Miami (a mere 40-or-so miles away from the rink in Sunrise), it seemed like a sign. And when Bill Zito, the Panthers’ general manager, invited Maurice to interview for the team’s head coaching position, the universe turned up the heat—literally—under the South Florida sun. “I wasn’t necessarily coming down to get the job,” he admits. “But a couple of hours into the first interview, I found myself thinking, ‘I want to work here. I want to work for this guy. I want to work for this group.’” Maurice accepted Zito’s job offer and was announced as the Panthers’ head coach in June 2022.

For Tkachuk, moving from the Calgary Flames (where he was drafted in 2016) to the Florida Panthers in July of last year wasn’t that same

type of kismet; instead, it was purpose-driven. “This team is so competitive and has been for the last few years,” he says. “I just wanted to be a part of that kind of winning team.”

And off the ice? “It’s pretty easy to tell that this is the greatest place to live and to play hockey,” Tkachuk says. “I bought a place in Fort Lauderdale on the water, like a day after I got traded.” (He has yet to purchase what seems to be the de facto status symbol for pro athletes—a high-end sports car—but he has acquired a pair of Jet Skis and what he calls “a mack daddy golf cart.”)

His burgeoning collection of South Florida–approved toys isn’t the only thing that bodes well for Tkachuk sticking around: His eight-year, $76-million contract with the Panthers means he’s here for the long haul. “I just really want to be in a place that has the best chance to win,” he says. “And for me, that’s this place.”

“There just aren’t men like [Tkachuk] left in the NHL,” Maurice says. “His skills are incredible, but he also plays with this edge, this kind of raw energy—with a passion and a sort of fire. A combination of those

two things—grit and skill—you just don’t see that very much anymore. We’re lucky to have him here.”

Tkachuk says that from the coaches to the trainers to the support staff and beyond, playing for the Panthers is like being a part of a big hockey family. It’s a familiar feeling: His own family tree is blooming with hockey talent, including his dad (NHL Hall-of-Famer Keith Tkachuk), his kid brother (Brady Tkachuk, who plays for the Ottawa Senators), and a handful of cousins and second cousins who have played or coached the sport professionally. Even his sister takes part, albeit via field hockey. (“Close enough, right?” Tkachuk jokes.)

“It was a hockey household,” he recalls. “I grew up around the game, going to the rink with my dad whenever I could. I knew at a really early age it was something I wanted to be a part of for my whole life.”

That family connection forged an early bond between Tkachuk and Barkov, himself a product of a hockey household; his father played professional hockey in Russia, Italy, and Finland. “My childhood was full of hockey, like Matthew’s” Barkov says.

Unlike Maurice and Tkachuk who joined the team this past summer, Barkov has been a Panther for nearly a decade now, having been selected as a 2013 first-round draft pick. He was named team captain in 2018—an honor that “is pretty much everything to me,” he says. In June 2021, he won the coveted Selke Trophy, which is presented to hockey’s best two-way player. In October 2021, the Panthers made

sure Barkov remains roster-ready for the foreseeable future with an eight-year, $80-million contract extension.

Despite the accolades, Maurice says Barkov remains incredibly humble. “There’s a term that some athletes ‘big league’ the game, meaning they see themselves as bigger than the game,” he explains. “But [Barkov] doesn’t think he’s bigger than anybody in any room. If you’ve got kids who are asking you to buy them a Panthers jersey, you’d be proud to have them wear one with the name Barkov on the back.”

And in terms of skills, Barkov has them in spades. “There isn’t anything on the ice that he won’t do or that he thinks he’s above,” Maurice says. “He’s going to block shots. He’s going to be the hardest working guy in practice. He’s going to be one of the most fit guys when it comes to camp. He doesn’t cheat the game. He doesn’t cheat his teammates or linemates.”

Speaking of linemates, Barkov and Tkachuk didn’t start out the season skating on the same line (that’s a hockey term for a group of forwards who play together during a game). “When you put your two stars on different lines, it forces the other team to spread their resources out,” Maurice says of his initial decision to play the duo separately.

But as the season progressed, plans changed. Barkov and Tkachuk took the ice together with teammate Carter Verhaeghe against the Ottawa Senators in October. “It was dynamic,” Maurice recalls. “They had something like 35 shot attacks. That’s what some teams get in a night.”

WE’RE NOT THINKING TOO MUCH AHEAD. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE’RE BUILDING OUR GAME AND OUR IDENTITY TOWARD THAT BIG GOAL.”
—AleksAnder BArkov

As for whether the Barkov-Tkachuk line will hold throughout the season? Maurice exhorts fans to wait and see. “I might look at splitting them up on the road,” he says. “But at home, it can be a real advantage.”

But will it be enough of an advantage to win the ultimate hockey prize, Lord Stanley’s famous silver cup?

It seemed within reach last year: The Panthers won the 2022 Atlantic Division Championship and the Presidents’ Trophy, which is awarded to the NHL’s best regular season team. They were part of the postseason, too, winning their first playoff series since 1996, defeating the Washington Capitals in six games during the opening round. But the second round came with a sting, when they were swept out of the semifinals by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Barkov doesn’t focus on last year’s negatives. “It was a good start,” he says. “But that was just the beginning.”

So what’s it going to take this year, given Barkov’s returning talents and Tkachuk’s new weaponry?

Maurice says the old adage of “taking one game at a time” is a fine strategy—with a caveat. “Each game, you have to learn something to take into the next game. And when you get to the playoffs, you have built a

BY THE TIME WE HIT THE PLAYOFFS, WE ALL UNDERSTAND EXACTLY THE STYLE OF GAME THAT WE WANT TO PLAY.”

cemented belief in who you are as a team and the way you’re going to play. That’s what the regular season is for. By the time we hit the playoffs, we all understand exactly the style of game that we want to play—and we’re playing it to the best of our abilities.”

Even with his superstar status, Tkachuk knows that nothing is a given. “It’s hard to make the playoffs in this sport,” he admits. “Half the teams do, and half the teams don’t. We’re trying to be in the half that does. Once we get there, we’ll see what happens.”

Barkov agrees. “We’re not thinking too much ahead. But at the same time, we’re building our game and identity toward that big goal.”

To Maurice’s way of thinking, Barkov is just the guy to lead the Panthers to that goal. “He simply wants to win hockey games,” Maurice says. “He’s one of those guys who might be more than happy if everybody else on the team got a point. He’ll just be happy that we win and that he feels he did the right thing on the ice. He’s the kind of guy who’s always looking to fill everyone’s cups.” «

PHILANTHROPY

DANITA R. DEHANEY — COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR PALM BEACH AND MARTIN COUNTIES

At its 50-year milestone, Danita R. DeHaney is leading the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties into its next era as our area’s premier philanthropic partner.

Recruited into the role two years ago by the organization’s board of directors thanks to her decades of fundraising and relationship-building experience, DeHaney is working to expand the charity’s impact on chronic—and current—issues.

From education to early childhood, housing to mental health, her focus is on reducing the pronounced disparities between the borders

of Palm Beach and Martin counties. She says the foundation’s broad network of over 3,400 nonprofit partners can deepen local donors’ connections to the causes closest to their hearts.

“As we continue our path to become the ‘Wall Street of the South,’ our neighbors’ needs will continue to grow in tandem,” says DeHaney. “I’m here to mobilize philanthropists and nonprofit partners to help us build on the Community Foundation’s legacy of ‘giving for good.’ Together, we have the power to help our entire region rise.”

CHEF DEMETRIO ZAVALA SHARES COOKING HACKS AND CULINARY SECRETS

This past year, restaurateur Gary Rack welcomed chef and Delray Beach native Demetrio Zavala as director of culinary for Gary Rack Restaurants, including Gary Rack’s Farmhouse Kitchen in Boca Raton and Delray Beach. A frequent face on the Food Network, Zavala has appeared on Chopped many times—winning the grand prize twice—so he knows a thing or two about crafting unique dishes on the fly. At Farmhouse Kitchen, Zavala is upholding Rack’s farm-to-table philosophy, using clean, locally sourced ingredients and zero-waste cooking methods. To augment the menus, Zavala has introduced “Chef’s Offerings” that reflect his culinary approach, such as carbonara with butternut squash and mushroom risotto with walnut picada. PBI recently caught up with the chef to talk about his favorite ingredients and more. (grrestaurant.com; farmhousekitchenboca.com)

PBI: What do you consider some of your culinary signatures?

Zavala: Any of the chef specials, you’ll know they’re mine because there are much more layers of flavor. I believe in aromatics. I believe in acid. I believe in enjoying different nuances of flavor. Sometimes you eat and you only get one dimension of flavor. I want to trick you a little bit and give you something to where maybe it’s rich, but then the finish has a lot of herbs and then a little bit of acidity, whether it’s lemon or sherry vinegar. When you eat like that, it makes you feel less heavy and like you’re not eating that much. It helps with digestion as well.

What are some key tools for home cooking if you’re really aiming to create zero waste?

I have two things in my kitchen, and I never turn on my stove. I have an air fryer and a sous-vide circulator. That’s all you need. With an air fryer, you can dehydrate, you can make purees—like a cauliflower. Everybody discards the leaves.

Everybody discards the heart. All you’ve got to do is peel back the heart, take the leaves, and put it together and make cauliflower puree, soup, risotto. You could make risotto without even adding rice.

What is always in your fridge?

I love beets. I always have carrots. I juice a lot, so I always have parsley, apples, cucumbers, those things. I always have Dijon mustard, sherry vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil, grain mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce. I like

making Vietnamese food too, so I’ll have palm sugar, rice vinegar, and túóng ót tói or even sambal oelek, which is like a spicy chili paste. I make a pretty killer risotto that has coconut, sambal, and duck confit.

What are your favorite Floridian ingredients that are in season during the winter?

Citrus. Florida’s all about citrus. I make these purees, which I like to do with lemons and oranges. I put the whole orange in aluminum foil with a little salt and pepper, then I roast it at like 300. I pull it apart and make a puree out of the whole orange, with the peel and everything. I accent lamb dishes and everything with that. I make a lemon puree that’ll blow your mind. The orange puree, it’s like eating 20 oranges in one little half a spoonful.

If you were creating a Chopped basket, what would you put in it?

I’d probably do pickled black walnuts, kombu, some Nashville hot chicken, and a panna cotta.

TROPICAL TREAT

Sometimes, business school is all about making connections. Just ask Vedant Saboo and Mike Weber, the founders of Frutero Ice Cream. The duo met in 2018, when they were assigned to sit next to one another on their first day of MBA class at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. They forged a friendship and eventually traveled to India together, where Saboo introduced Weber to the tropical fruit ice cream he grew up eating. The trip inspired them to create their own line of ice cream made from 100 percent tropical fruit. Saboo and Weber are now based in Delray Beach, and Frutero is available at Whole Foods and other retail locations across the Southeast. As for what to try first, Saboo’s favorite is the mango, because it reminds him of the mango orchard his grandfather owned in Ranchi, India. Weber recommends creating a “piña colada” of sorts, by blending a scoop each of Frutero coconut and pineapple ice creams with 2 ounces of Bacardi Rum. (fruteroicecream.com) —M.M.

WHAT’S COOKING?

Seasonality meets sustainability in The Humane Table: Cooking with Compassion by Robin Ganzert, the president and CEO of American Humane. Available to purchase online and on Palm Beach at the Classic Bookshop and the Palm Beach Book Store, this new cookbook celebrates responsibly raised and sustainable ingredients that complement the organization’s mission to ensure animal welfare around the globe. Organized by season, the more than 100 featured recipes are by top chefs and national brands, but they are geared toward the home chef. Below, we share a winter recipe of beef satay by Karin Calloway. (american humane.org) —M.M.

Beef Satay

Ingredients

(makes 8 appetizer servings or 4 entree servings)

1 small onion, peeled and coarsely chopped

3 garlic cloves, peeled

1 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup sesame oil

1 tbsp. chili oil or Asian hot sauce (such as

sriracha)

1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut into thin slices

4 tbsp. peanut butter (or 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts)

2 tbsp. warm water

For the satay, combine onion, garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili oil or hot sauce in a food processor fitted with the S-blade. Pulse until the marinade mixture forms a smooth paste. Pour half into a resealable plastic bag. Add beef, seal the bag, and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

For the dipping sauce, combine the remaining marinade with peanut butter or chopped nuts and water in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to use, or cover and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to serve, heat indoor or outdoor grill. Thread beef onto skewers and grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side, basting with the marinade once on each side. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

FROM CITY TO OCEAN, THE FINE ART OF PALM BEACH LIVING

BARBIE CHIC DESIGN

This Palm Beach project by Jennifer Hunter of Jennifer Hunter Design proves that childlike whimsy has an exciting place in stylish design. Because the 2,350-square-foot apartment functions as a seasonal abode for her parents as well as an occasional respite for Hunter, her husband, and her two children, she knew she had to balance function and fun.

“My inspiration was old-world Palm Beach but with a twist,” says Hunter. “I

wanted to see this old-school era but through a fresh lens by riffing on color combos and pattern pairings.”

That riffing comes across in a marriage of Barbiecore references and grandmillennial nuance. Teal blues and bubblegum pinks dance throughout the space, while cheeky wallpaper and fabric patterns boldly play off one another. Scalloped edges find their way on everything, from sofas to coffee tables. Hunter also added locally sourced vintage pieces that speak to the mid-century building where the apartment is located.

SWEAT IT OUT

SAUNAS ARE A HOT TOPIC IN CONTEMPORARY HOME DESIGN

Traditionally, saunas have been relegated to basements or unused corners of a home or backyard. Today’s custom saunas, however, are taking center stage. What’s changed? Just about everything.

“Saunas have now become not only a health and performance room but also a fashion statement,” says Peter Santolalla, project manager at Boca Raton–based Saunas & Steam Rooms by Design. “We normally convert cabana bathrooms, closets, tub areas, toilet rooms, etc. into beautiful rooms that change the look of the area into private spas.”

Santolalla credits some of the increase in sauna demand to technology that allows firms like his to cre ate 3D designs of a customized room and make any necessary changes before construction. Technology is also to thank for the popular trend of hybrid sauna rooms. Whereas people once had to choose between a traditional Finnish sauna (that harnesses the power of dry heat) and infrared saunas (that use infrared lamps to warm the body), today the two can be installed in the same room and used together or separately.

A wealth of cool options certainly helps with the allure of in-home saunas. While Santo lalla prefers the look and smell of cedar (traditional for Finnish saunas), he acknowledges that the variety of wood available to work with—including engineered wood, which is making a push to enter the market—has never been greater.

But the bells and whistles go far beyond material choice and basic design. In addition to infrared systems, saunas can be equipped with everything from aromatherapy to chromotherapy lights (that use color to stimulate natural healing) to Himalayan salt walls (that emit negative ions to reduce stress and anxiety and replenish minerals lost due to environmental pollution and stressful living).

As for his client’s favorite feature, Santolalla points to WiFi capabilities. “With this application, users can manage the sauna system from basically anywhere via WiFi,” he says. “The benefit is that they can turn on the sauna before arriving home and have the room ready to use at the desired temperature as soon as they get there.”

Above all, Santolalla notes that it’s important to determine a client’s goals early on. “Some clients prefer looks and want their sauna to be a visual masterpiece. On the other hand, some hardcore sauna users are willing to compromise looks for performance. These users want as

Numerous options currently exist for custom in-home saunas, including outdoor structures or those embedded in bathrooms. COURTESY OF SAUNAS & STEAM ROOMS BY DESIGN

little glass as possible and the room to be as compact as possible, so the heat doesn’t leave the room easily.

“The second preference factor is the actual size. We have done rooms for athletes who request enough room for training bikes and treadmills. Other people ask for enough room for stretching and to practice yoga. Still others want more bench space for multiple users at one time. We adapt to the client but always recommend what’s best for the performance of the room.”

Interiors was in a romantic mood when designing this tranquil space. “In order to create this soft, romantic French country bedroom, I used muted blue-gray colors against a white backdrop,” Williams explains. “The wall behind the headboard was clad in tongueand-groove wood planks to create some texture. A set of reclaimed doors received antique mirrors and were mounted on barn door tracks to conceal the doorway to the master bathroom. Vintage oil paintings and vintage candleholders add to the romantic feeling in this space.” Wellington (ninawilliamsinteriors.com)

Bamboo & Rattan

THESE NATURAL RESOURCES TAKE ON NEW LIFE INSIDE PALM BEACH HOMES

In South Florida, architects and interior designers have long embraced materials that flourish outside and also adapt well to interiors. Bamboo is hollow inside and classified as a grass, and yet when it covers the walls of a room it transforms the space. Rattan, on the other hand, is classified as a vine and much more pliable than bamboo. Rattan furniture became increasingly popular in the Palm Beaches during the 1940s for its durability and indoor-outdoor use. Whether utilized for dining, lounging, or entertaining, bamboo and rattan are truly versatile, as seen in these three historic examples.

1. THE REEF, 1936

Maurice Fatio designed a Moderne-style residence on North Ocean Boulevard for Vadim and Josephine Hartford Makaroff. Marjorie Oelrichs, a socialite and friend of Fatio’s, served as decorator. One of the most stunning rooms in the house, the dining room featured bamboo-paneled walls and Cubist bamboo furniture evocative of French designer Jean-Michel Frank.

2. PRENTICE RESIDENCE, 1950

Just south in Delray Beach, Wyeth, King & Johnson designed a house for Clarence

and Violet Prentice. The project was lauded for its abundance of easy-tomaintain, clean materials, such as the split-bamboo curtains and strawcloth upholstery. With its bold tropical prints, the curved rattan furniture in the living room was the perfect balance to the lanai. Virginia Johnson, of Jessup Inc. and the wife of architect William Johnson, was the decorator.

3. CASA DE LOS ARCOS, 1960S

John and Jane Volk’s home in Phipps Plaza, Casa de los Arcos (or “house of arches”),

was known for its eclectic furnishings, art, and salvaged remnants from Palm Beach estates. Their bamboo room included a bar just off the saltwater pool on the ground floor. Jane Volk was the decorator of their home, and her indelible taste is evident in the decor of the bamboo room.

HOW

FOUR TIPS FOR MAXIMIZING YOUR MORNING ENERGY

Not a morning person? Maybe all it takes to jump-start your day and improve your a.m. attitude is a change in your wake-up routine. Try these expert suggestions to generate maximum energy before facing the day.

The Breakfast

Jupiter-based holistic nutritionist Jen Van Horn says it’s imperative to start the day by drinking a glass of filtered or purified water with the juice of half a lemon or lime to alkalinize the body. (Take it one step further by adding a pinch of Himalayan salt and a small amount of organic honey to create your own electrolyte drink.) Then, a few minutes later, go for your caffeine, if needed, in the form of organic coffee or green tea.

Van Horn recommends waiting at least 20 minutes after drinking your water to have breakfast, but eat it within one hour of waking up for maximum benefits. The critical components of your morning meal, says Van Horn, are high-quality protein (at least 15 grams) in combination with a small amount of good fat.

“Protein will fuel your body for hours,” she says. “People will do something sugary, which won’t cut it because you’ll be starving two hours later.”

Van Horn is a big fan of eggs. Her ideal breakfast consists of two to three pasture-raised eggs and a handful of spinach cooked in ghee (clarified butter) with half an avocado. (jenvanhorn.com)

HOW TO BECOME A WAKE-UP WARRIOR (CONT.)

YOU KNOW WHAT TO EAT, NOW HERE’S WHAT TO DO

The Workout

According to the National Institute for Fitness and Sport, working out in the morning can boost your energy for the day thanks to increased oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. The National Institutes of Health points to morning exercise’s added benefits of supporting brain function and one’s ability to focus on tasks throughout the day. Instead of complaining that you don’t have time to exercise in the morning, skip one snooze button cycle and get it done in only seven minutes. The Scientific Seven-Minute Workout incorporates cardio, endurance, and strength training in one routine—and the only equipment you need is a chair and a wall. First introduced in 2013 in the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health and Fitness Journal, the workout alternates between 30 seconds of high-intensity exercise and 10 seconds of rest and includes exercises that target each major muscle group. Follow workout instructions on your choice of Seven-Minute Workout apps.

The Music

Does your morning have a soundtrack? Maybe it should. According to a study conducted by Spotify and music psychologist David Greenberg, the ideal wake-up song should offer three specific elements to get you up and energized: It should build, it should be positive, and it should have a strong beat (approximately 100 to 130 beats per minute) that encourages you to get up and dance. Here are a few suggestions to get started.

The Shower

While perhaps not the most popular temperature, cold showers have been proven to improve energy and increase alertness. When the cold water hits your body, it triggers an increase in oxygen intake, circulation, and heart rate to help wake you up. Research has also shown that cold showers may heighten your immune system and relieve symptoms of depression.

For many, though, the cold shower seems like unfair morning punishment. A more palatable option may be what’s called a contrast shower or contrast hydrotherapy. In this process, you shower in hot water as normal for three to five minutes, then switch to cold water for one minute, before switching back to hot and repeating the cycle three to five times, always finishing with cold. The hot water will cause your blood vessels to dilate, while the cold will encourage blood flow to your vital organs and activate your parasympathetic nervous system. This results in a huge burst of energy and release of endorphins. For full effectiveness, let the cold water hit your forehead and chest (which have the most cold receptors) and try to maximize the difference in temperature between the hot and cold portions.

Sugar, Sugar

Roughly 96 million Americans are currently considered to be prediabetic, putting them at risk of developing type 2 diabetes or heart disease and experiencing a stroke. The good news is that prediabetes is reversable. And one South Florida–based company has created a product designed to jump-start that process.

“Unmanaged prediabetes, without action, could develop into type 2 diabetes within one year,” says Bill Panagiotakopoulos, CEO of Diabetinol. “Unfortunately, insulin resistance is the first step in developing type 2 diabetes. Reversing the process is key. In people with prediabetes, some of the long-term damage to blood vessels, heart, and kidneys may already be starting.”

Formulated from a blend of citrus bioflavonoids, essential vitamins, and herbs traditionally used to support healthy blood sugar levels, Diabetinol aids in increasing insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels. It is a dietary supplement, and the recommended dosage is one capsule in the morning and another at night.

“Diabetinol’s scientifically validated clinical trials have consistently shown [that it] improves blood glucose numbers,” says Panagiotakopoulos. “This is very good news for the many Americans with high blood sugar levels. Tighter blood sugar control may mean fewer diabetic diagnoses.” (diabetinol.com) —L.G.S.

TRAIN OF THOUGHT

Military veteran Ken Farrell had planned to open a gym once he retired from the Broward Sheriff’s Office. However, his timeline changed when he was hit by a car and forced to leave his career in police work due to the severity of his injuries. During his lengthy recovery, Farrell connected with a knee specialist who owned a D1 Training facility. D1, as Farrell would learn, is a nationwide fitness concept that utilizes the five core tenets of athletic-based training: dynamic warm-up, performance, strength program, core and conditioning, and cooldown.

D1 is also designed for all ages and athletic backgrounds. As a father and sports coach, Farrell loved the idea of a place where children and young adults could learn proper training. He ultimately decided to open his own D1 location in Royal Palm Beach, and he now offers agebased group workout programs including Rookie (ages 7-11), Developmental (ages 12-14), Prep (ages 15-18), and D1 Adult, as well as one-on-one training with worldclass coaches.

“What’s most exciting about this journey is how we are changing people’s lives—from athletes making their high school teams to athletes playing at the next level,” says Farrell. “We are also changing the lives of kids who didn’t think they could be an athlete and adults who think it’s too late to get back in shape.”

Farrell adds that D1 has changed his life, too. “I was told I would never walk again without the help of a brace and cane. Now I’m training for a 5K. It goes to show that you can accomplish whatever you put your mind to.” (d1training.com) —L.G.S.

SIMPLE THINGS

GOOD NATURE MAKE 2023 THE YEAR OF PEACE AND CLARITY

As is tradition, at the turn of the New Year we bring focus back to our goals, ourselves, and our future. I love this yearly ritual of introspection that can bring a feeling of renewal, recommitment, and fresh growth to daily life and to our visions of what we’d like our lives to be. Of course, working so closely with so many in the treatment room, I hear a lot about what we all want—all the many ways we want to look and feel good—year in and year out.

At the core, however, I’ve learned that there are two baseline

found that just having a smile on your face

goals that make all the rest possible: peace and clarity. Finding ways to shore up each of these essential pillars is what allows us to expand into everything else. Science supports this. Researchers have found that just having a smile on your face can release the neurotransmitter serotonin, which calms the brain and soothes the nervous system. A long, deep exhale helps the body come into relaxation. And time spent in silence, without any input and with nothing to do, helps you make better decisions.

As a holistic practitioner, I know that my clients who benefi t the most from their wellness practices are those who savor each experience. When they leave a facial treatment, they don’t put on makeup right away but rather make time for the more subtle levels of the process to integrate and settle. After yoga or Pilates, they don’t scramble out the door—they flow. While we all want to slow the aging process, the clients who have learned to pace themselves actually look younger to me than they did when they fi rst sought my services, even if years have gone by. On the physical level, it makes sense: Research has suggested that stress hormones like cortisol directly affect the body’s ability to produce collagen.

My resolution is to bring more clarity and peace to every other goal I undertake this year. In the smallest ways, that will mean starting my days with a single intention, one that I can revisit on a short break between meetings. And every now and again that will mean leaving a day completely open—letting go of my schedule and just seeing where life takes me. For you it might mean taking the dog for an extra long walk, canceling an appointment, or tucking in for an additional hour of sleep. Sometimes we forget the power found in these simple kindnesses toward ourselves. But we can’t undervalue their impact. There’s potency in each small moment of peace, which is what really makes every other New Year’s resolution come into being. «

RETHINKING INVESTING

Inflation, rising interest rates, a volatile stock market, and the threat of recession. We’ve seen it all before, but not always in the same combination. No one likes to lose money, but regardless of the variety of factors at play, the same question will always arise among investors: Where should I put my money now?

“The very first thing we have to recognize is that humans have a built-in bias to want to do something,” says William Luther, associate professor in the economics department at the Florida Atlantic University College of Business. “No one wants to see a portfolio drop by 20 percent, but as counterintuitive and uncomfortable as it is, the correct answer is often to do nothing different.”

Investors with a well-diversified portfolio in low-fee exchange-traded funds or mutual funds should ride out the volatility better than those who panic and pull out assets in search of something with temporarily higher returns, he adds.

Cryptocurrency, art, wine, and collectibles are always volatile investments; any investor who watched what happened to cryptocurrency this past year knows that all too well. Outsize returns can quickly turn to breathtaking losses. However, Luther says that if investors believe cryptocurrency will indeed be the currency of the future, it could be beneficial to own a tiny amount. “Modern portfolio theory tells us we should have a little bit of everything, but for most people, less than 1 percent of their portfolio holdings in cryptocurrency is enough for now.”

He is cautious about investing in real estate. “Interest rates are moving higher, although prices are moderating and, in some cases, coming down,” he says. “But it’s not obvious yet that investors would make a profit.”

Instead of chasing gains, Luther says there are only two situations that warrant changes in a well-designed portfolio, defined as one that is designed to match an investor’s time horizon and tolerance for risk. The first is that as a person’s income stream declines—nearing retirement, for example—the allocation to bonds should increase because these safer assets don’t fluctuate as much as stocks. The second is when outside returns in one asset class, such as stocks, knock your portfolio out of balance, those gains should be reallocated to other areas to maintain the original proportion of safety versus growth.

All that being said, Luther takes note of one particular economic concern that hasn’t been a factor in the recent past that might require some portfolio reallocation: inflation. “The Federal Reserve has a target

BALANCE
WEALTH
WITH THE STOCK MARKET SLUMPING, WHERE SHOULD YOU PUT YOUR MONEY NOW?

of 2 percent [inflation] on average, but they’re telling us it will be elevated beyond that for the next two years and won’t decline until 2025,” he says. “What that means for investors is that they need to think about a small corner of their portfolio that hasn’t gotten much attention, which is cash.”

The higher the inflation rate goes, the more it chips away at the value of cash. Investors in a position to reallocate cash into the market or elsewhere should do that, but not at the expense of squeezing emergency reserves or living expenses.

Accompanying higher inflation are fears of a recession, which are not unfounded in this environment. “At the very least, economic growth will slow a bit, and that’s a big reason the markets dropped,” Luther says. “Going into 2023, there are a lot of unknowns, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and although most of us are seeing the pandemic from the perspective of the rearview mirror, there’s some chance it will come back.”

Lingering supply-chain problems and disruptions in production are also hanging around, says Luther. “The good news in the supply chain

issues is that they are much less severe than they were in late 2020.” Nothing will be fixed immediately, but there is progress going forward.

“We can look back over the past year and see that bad things happened to our portfolio, but we have to understand that all of that has already happened,” Luther concludes. Sticking to the long-term strategy rather than reacting to the past is the best bet going forward. “If investors get nervous and pull out assets, they’ll miss some portion of the inevitable upturn and buy back in when it’s more expensive. They just have to trust the strategy.” «

Great MINDS

An artistic crossover is unfolding at Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. Part-time Jupiter Island residents Jason and Nicole Newsted will unveil “Like Mind,” an exhibition of their art, January 19.

You may recognize Jason as the six-time Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bassist of Metallica. In addition to his musical pursuits, Jason has honed his skills as a multimedia artist. His work occasionally pays homage to music, with abstract guitars

front and center, while the rest showcases otherworldly subjects bursting with vibrant color and texture.

Nicole is also an accomplished painter, whose pieces appear in collections across the globe. In contrast with her husband, Nicole has

an eye for the whimsical. She often zeros in on the sweetness in life, capturing candies, stuffed animals, and other saccharine subjects in saturated works of maximalist brilliance.

Curated by Janeen Mason, the exhibition will be on view through March 1. Admission to the gallery is a $5 suggested donation. In addition, Jason will perform a solo benefit concert February 11, with tickets priced at $100 and attendance limited to 100. (lighthousearts.org)

Highway to Hell

Dare to journey to the underworld (and back) with Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice, Hades, and Persephone when Hadestown arrives at the Kravis Center January 3-8. This genre-defying, eight-time Tony Award–winning musical features music, lyrics, and a book by Anaïs Mitchell, who retells the Greek myth of lovers Orpheus and Eurydice, offering a modern take on the story through the sounds of American folk and Big Easy jazz. In Mitchell’s rendition, Eurydice seeks relief from climate change–induced poverty in Hadestown, Orpheus sets out to rescue her with Hermes’ help, and a series of betrayals and long walks ensue. At its core, the musical follows two intertwined love stories that navigate fear, doubt, and faith. Tickets start at $40. (kravis.org) —A.D.

Hard Bodies

Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture

An enterprising circle of artists has been pushing lacquerware in entirely new and dynamic directions by creating large-scale sculptures, works that are both conceptually innovative and superbly exploitative of lacquer’s natural qualities. These artists have mastered lacquer’s demanding techniques while altering its age-old perception by expanding boundaries and defying expectations.

Organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the 33 works by 16 artists in Hard Bodies constitute the first-ever comprehensive exhibition of contemporary Japanese lacquer sculpture. All the works are from MIA’s Clark Collection, the only collection in the world to feature this extraordinary new form.

DECEMBER 3, 2022 THROUGH JANUARY 22, 2023

Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday-Saturday; 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Closed Tuesdays. Tickets: $10. Visit fourarts.org to reserve tickets and view all our season programs.

TOM GRILL CHARLES FAZZINO DENIS LEON PAVEL NOVAK CARLOS HERRERA DESIGN ALEA PINAR DU PRE

You come from a small town in East Texas. How did you get your start in fashion?

I started in fashion as a stylist assistant for Deborah Afshani in 2009. I also worked for Edward Enninful and eventually Nicola Formichetti.

Your collections span from modernized daywear to red-carpet ready. How do you feel like you’ve evolved as a designer?

I’ve seen myself grow immensely, especially in my ability to understand my customer and what she wants. That is what really drives me these days, not so much industry pressure to be a certain kind of designer but the drive to be myself and stay true to my values and the values of the women who have supported me.

What was the inspiration behind your Spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection?

I’m not really someone who has inspirations in the way you normally think of [them]. It’s more a feeling, a color palette, a really great silhouette or fabric. I wanted SS23 to be easy, glamorous, and offer simplicity to dressing that doesn’t have to be boring. I loved the idea of combining shine with cozy knits and exploring different approaches to taffeta and jacquard.

Who or what has been the greatest influence on your work? This will probably feel like a cliché, but I’m most inspired by the women in my life: my mother, grandmothers, sisters, and friends who show up for me every day. They have a great sense of self and style, and I wouldn’t be here today without them.

REAL TALK WITH...

Brandon Maxwell

What’s a wardrobe staple every Palm Beach woman should own?

We did a crinkled cotton gown for Pre-Spring 2023 that is definitely a staple. It can be worn to the beach or a gala.

You have a successful namesake brand and collaborative capsule collections, and you’ve also appeared as a judge on Project Runway. What’s next?

It’s hard to say! Probably taking more time to be present with my fiancé and some much-needed time off.
