SENIOR EDITOR

Diana Rigg was a 1960s style icon and feminist role model. She was best known as Emma Peel (born Emma Knight) on the hit television program, The Avengers ,which aired from 1961-1969. On the show, she is a daughter of the wealthy industrialist, Sir John Knight, and the crime-fighting partner of secret agent John Steed. The role was notable for a number of reasons: Peel is a strong heroine who is rarely defeated in fights - often rescuing Steed when he was in perilous trouble; she is a certified genius, specializing in applied chemistry and other physical sciences; she successfully helms her late father’s company...and she drives a convertible Lotus Elan at breathtaking high speeds! Additionally, she convincingly portrays a number of undercover roles including nurse, nanny and magazine reporter. Most pertinently, her fashion is top-notch.

The styles Diana Rigg wore as Emma Peel came to define Swinging London, combining mod with avante-garde. Her looks were groundbreaking, characterized by slinky leather catsuits, super-short skirts, flat boots, exposed zips… All fashioned by leading designers of the decade, John Bates and Pierre Cardin. Peel wore a miniskirt on the show before the style had risen to prominence. In fact, legend has it that Bates stopped leaving hems on his designs because members of the production team kept making them longer. “The designer and the other men were horrified,” Rigg told the TV Times “They pulled their hair, said, ‘You can’t do that, it’s impossible.’ I argued that one must look forward and not back, and by wearing these brief skirts, one was looking forward.”

As Q contributor Elizabeth Quinn Brown relays in her latest article for Fall Q, Dame Diana Rigg became known for far more than just her memorable 1960s roles. Ok, so she was the first (and only) Bond girl to ever marry 007 in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Now that’s a coup. But she also went on to become a revered stage actress (she won a Tony) and in her final years she played sharp-witted Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones. No GOT-watcher will ever forget Olenna’s beloved frank two-liners, à la “Get some rest, dear. You look appalling.”

Two other icons of fashion are covered in the latest Q by returning contributor, Alexander Hankin. Currently on display at The Museum at FIT is “Dior + Balenciaga: The Kings of Couture and their Legacies,” which dives into how these two men shaped the haute couture landscape forever and created what are two of the most powerful houses in fashion today.

Open through November 6, the exhibition focuses on the similarities and contrasts between Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga. Hankin also reports on modern day designer Johnson Hartig of Libertine, whose contributions Karl Lager feld once noted as “important and influential”. One of the first to bring the skull theme back into the fold, Hartig credits Christian Lacroix, Emmanuel Ungaro, and Lagerfeld as his personal design heroes.

If you have an eye for overseas, travel to St. Barths along with Q’s senior editor, Brooke Kelly Murray, who explores Assouline’s latest tome, St. Barths Freedom. For those wishing to remain in the U.S., look no further than Beverly Hills’ The Maybourne. A true oasis in the epicenter of Los Angeles, the hotel offers first-class amenities.

For news down south, catch Robert Jangiggian’s article on Palm Beach’s Carriage House. The highly anticipated members-only lunch, dinner, and night spot will officially open in November.

delivers the latest and greatest from the runways, along with the best styles and accessories to help you transition from fall into winter—all neatly laid-out by our talented art director, Tykischa Jacobs.

As you step into fall, take a cue from late actress Diana Rigg: “The older you get, I have to say, the funnier you find life. That’s the only way to go.”u

Made For Walking

Françoise Rubartelli haphazardly met her famed photographer boyfriend (who later became her husband), Franco Rubartelli, in a pub in England. Enrolled at Cambridge to study English, Franco was in the pub to meet a blind date—who had stood him up. At the time, Françoise was working as a waitress to earn pocket money while studying at the university. As Franco rose to leave, he collided with the Swiss beauty carrying a tray of beer and the rest was history. The two moved to Rome and married, and Françoise went on to be a renowned model of the ’60s. Above, Françoise is photographed by Irving Penn for Vogue, September 1, 1967.

Suited For Savile Row

Steve McQueen Nicknamed the “King of Cool”, Steve Mc Queen was a top box-office draw throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. His rendition of Thomas Crown in the original 1968 version of the film remains one of the most influential moments in men’s style. Crown, a self-made Bostonian billionaire, is tired of being part of the Establishment, so he masterminds a bank heist with hopes of leaving it all behind. The premise is catchy, and Crown’s wardrobe is unmatched. After all, who wouldn’t want to watch McQueen’s ruggedly handsome character—dressed to the nines—driving fast cars, and playing polo?

Catchy Clutches

Gitta Schilling dressed in a crisp black and white cotton suit by Handmacher paired with an oversized cartwheel hat and Ingber clutch, photographed by Karen Radkai for Vogue, 1959. Brigitta (“Gitta”) Schilling was born in Berlin in 1936 into a world of war and poverty. Her family faced countless hardships, which she discusses in the 2010 documentary, Gitta Schilling- Timeless Beauty. Never theless, a difficult past did not stop Gitta from achieving supermodel stardom. Discovered while walking in a local parade at the age of 16, Gitta went on to appear on the covers of Vogue and Madame, and was often photographed by the likes of Irving Penn, F.C. Gundlach, Helmut Newton, and William Klein. Karl Lagerfeld counted her as one of his closest friends.

Swinging Pretty

High Street Shoppers Two Young girls embrace the mod look while shopping in London in 1968. “Swinging London” was a term that arose in the 1960s to define the fashion and cultural scene flourishing in London at the time. Following a decade of post-war austerity, London’s youth was ready for a change. In 1965, Diana Vreeland, editor of Vogue magazine, exclaimed “London is the most swinging city in the world at the moment”. “Swinging” in the sense of fun and fashionable. Mini skirts and mod-related styles had swept the nation, becoming symbols of youth culture.

Apparently, over 50 years ago, Jagger matter-offactly turned to Myers and said, “I’m not going to be singing rock & roll when I’m 50.” That was when the now legendary frontman was merely an ex-economics student who’d started a rock band. Jagger went on to defy his own proclamation—and then some. Jagger turned 79 this past July and in August the Rolling Stones concluded a 2022 tour titled “Sixty”, in celebration of 60 years together.

Actress Diana Rigg in a promotional photo for 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service, starring George Lazenby as James Bond. Rigg's character in the film, Teresa “Tracy” Di Vicenzo, is the only Bond Girl ever to have married 007. > Opposite page: Rigg in character as Emma Peel on the set of the 1960s hit show, The Avengers.

The elegant and esteemed Diana Rigg—who starred, famously, in The Avengers and Game of Thrones—was an unmatched actress with fabulous “fringe” whose theatrical grounding was in London’s Stratford and West End.

Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg was born on July 20, 1938, in Doncaster, England. Before she was one, she was relocated to Jodhpur, India—where her father, Louis Rigg, worked as a railway engineer for the Maharaja of Bikaner. In 1945, Diana (who spoke both English and Hindi) returned to England with her mother, Beryl Rigg, and her brother, Hugh Rigg. Diana shared with The Guardian, “[…] Yorkshire really formed my character. I get straight to the point and say what I feel. I can’t help it, it’s genetic. That’s my excuse anyway.”

In 1950, Diana began boarding at the Fulneck School in Pudsey, England. There, she discovered acting, playing roles like Orlando in As You Like It and Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream Diana’s Drama instructor, Sylvia Greenwood, once described her famous student as “determined” and “self-disciplined”— and “a very free spirit with a mind of her own.” (Diana returned Greenwood’s praise, saying, “She is unique and I owe her my life in the theater.”)

Dame

Diana Rigg

Diana unenrolled from Fulneck in 1955 and proceeded to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, England, where she debuted in Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle. In 1959, she joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford, England, cast alongside greats like Tony Church, Judi Dench, Edith Evans, Ian Holm, Laurence Olivier, and Ian Richardson. She garnered praise playing Cordelia in King Lear.

She first splashed onto the screen in 1965, when she was cast opposite Patrick Macnee’s character, John Steed, in The Avengers the classic TV series about British espionage. During her reign as the secret agent Emma Peel, Diana became a feminist icon in black leather catsuits. (Behind the scenes, she became a feminist icon, too: She demanded a fair rate when she learned that she was being

paid less than the cameraman.)

In her second season, she started wearing miniskirts when they were still considered a risky choice. It has been said that The Avengers’ fashion designer, John Bates—considered by some, including British Vogue’s Marit Allen, to be the creator of the miniskirt—started dressing Diana in hem-less miniskirts, so that production couldn’t go back and lengthen them. Diana remembered to TV Times, “In fact, one was creating fashion [that was] very avant garde, rather than remaining at the tail end of last year’s styles. And it turned out that I couldn’t have been more right.”

Between 1965 and 1968, she was emblematic of London’s Swinging ’60s, much like a female James Bond with the same charisma and sex appeal. In 1969, she actually became Mrs. Bond as 007’s wife, Tracy di Vicenzo, in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, which featured George Lazenby as James Bond. George once shared, “We were having lunch just before the love scene, and there were a lot of press around because they were invited that day. Diana Rigg was having lunch about four or five tables away and she yelled quite loudly, ‘I’m having garlic today George, I hope you are.’ You know, it was just a joke. They took it down as if she ate garlic so she could put me off, but I don’t quite remember smelling garlic on her, and it was quite a lot of fun with her and she’s another bright lady.”

In her slinky leather catsuits and super-short mini skirts, The Avengers’ Emma Peel brought a fetish istic element to fashion. Peel wore a miniskirt on the show before it had attained ubiquity, and legend has it that designer John Bates stopped leaving hems on them because members of the production team kept trying to lengthen them. Diana remem bered to TV Times, “In fact, one was creating fash ion that was very avant garde, rather than remaining at the tail end of last year’s styles. And it turned out that I couldn’t have been more right.”

In 1973, Diana was married to Menachem Gueffen, the Israeli painter. She intimated to People, “We fight all the time, but it’s a marvelous, marvelous relationship. I give the marriage a year.” The marriage lasted three years, ending in 1976.

Diana published No Turn Unstoned: The Worst Ever Theatrical Reviews in 1982, infusing humor into the upsetting feedback that she and others had received. (In 2014, she would give a solo show in Edinburgh, Scotland, based on the stories in this beloved book.) She was, perhaps, inspired by one of the reviews that she received for her 1971 performance in Abelard and Heloise. She remembered to The Guardian, “When I appeared nude in a play on Broadway in the early ‘70s, a nasty little critic said I was built like a brick mausoleum with insufficient flying buttresses. He should have seen me after the menopause, there was no shortfall then! It was devastating at the time.”

In 1977, she and Archie Stirling, the theater producer, welcomed daughter Rachael Stirling—who, like Diana, became an actress. Diana would wed Archie in 1982, but the couple divorced in 1990 (following an affair). Later, Diana told the Daily Mail, “If you have a good inner life you don’t get lonely.

I’ve got a good imagination. I don’t miss romance. I’m so grateful not to have to go there anymore. Does that sound awful?’

In 1988, she was recognized by Queen Elizabeth II with a CBE. And, in 1994, she was made a dame (or, DBE)—the same year that she won a Tony Award (Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play) for Medea, one of her most memorable performances.

Her career and influence as a classical actress blossomed in the second half of her life. In the 2000s, Diana was featured as Olenna Tyrell in 18 episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, earning Emmy nominations in 2013–2015. She once remarked, “There are some actors who don’t like to play bad. They like to be liked. I love to be disliked. Olenna had the best lines. They were very kind with their scripts.” She added, to The Guardian, “It wasn’t my decision to have Lady Olenna killed off in Game of Thrones. I’d love to have stayed on. Thank God I didn’t die on a toilet like Charles Dance’s character.”

In 2021, She enjoyed a posthumous performance in Last Night in Soho, which

starred Anya Taylor-Joy. She recorded some of her last lines from home, while drinking a Campari. Indeed, She and her daughter, Rachael Stirling, had Camparis at 4 p.m. each day until she died on September 10, 2020, in London, England. She was memorialized by Rachael with a plaque at St. Paul’s Church in London’s Covent Garden, reading:

Dame Diana Rigg

First Appearance 1938 Called to Rehearsal 2020 Well and Truly Beloved

Of the hundreds of remembrances that Diana’s peers made when she died, it was, perhaps, Mark Gatiss, who captured her magic. (Gatiss starred with Diana in All About My Mother at the Old Vic in 2007.) He shared with The Guardian , “What first met you was the presence. Diana sailed into a room like a galleon, draped in a stylish shawl, the blond bob framing those famous cheekbones. We were performing together at the Old Vic in Samuel Adamson’s version of All About My Mother , she as the actor Huma Rojo and I as her dresser, Agrado. It was a glorious, naughty time. She would eat a pork pie before every show and sit on the stairs, smoking furiously.”

Diana’s death can be likened to how the actress once described Olenna’s end: “She does it with dignity and wit, and wit is not often in final death scenes.” There’s much to continue to celebrate about Rigg—including, the cleverness she carried and delivered, both on and off the stage and screen. ◆

boast a picturesque landscape with clear waters, white-sand beaches, and mountainous terrain, but it’s also a culinary treasure-trove with world-class shops lining the streets, giving it an exotic yet European vibe. Adding to the feeling of seclusion and exclusivity, most arrive via private jet or a rickety propeller plane from a nearby island due to the lack of non-stop flights. Travelers will experience an adrenaline pumping nosedive landing onto a narrow runway, followed by a more pleasant greeting from a hotel conceirge or private driver, awaiting with transportation to the sanctuary of their choice. The tiny jewel of an island is the topic of Assouline’s latest book, St. Barths Freedom, writ ten by British journalist Vassi Chamberlain, whose love affair with St. Barths began 22 years ago following a visit to a friend who owned a house there. Her friend described St. Barths as geographically para disial, filled with stylish and rigorously exacting restaurants, but where an inclusive and renegade spirit suffused every corner. An invitation impossible to turn down.

Since her initial visit, Chamberlain has returned almost every year and the book—filled with captivating images—serves as a re minder of the island’s gems along with her personal memories. She also touches on the history of St. Barths, including Christopher Co lumbus’s landing in 1493, the onset of French occupation in 1648, the Swedish acquisition, and ultimately the arrival of Franco-Dutch aviator Rémy de Haenen in 1946, who has been officially credited with imbuing the island with style and modernity. During his time on St. Barths, de Haenen served as consul general and mayor. See ing the need for tourism, de Haenen spearheaded the development of the airstrip and opened the island’s first hotel, Eden Roc, which remains a top social hub since its launch 60 years ago. New ad vancements began to attract elites such as David Rockefeller in the late ’50s, and eventually made it the celeb hotspot it is today. In the book Chamberlain recalls one of her earliest visits, during which she was swept into a party to find herself among a star-studded group including Puff Daddy, Mary J. Blige, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis, to name a few.

Whether enjoying one of 22 pristine beaches, perusing Gus tavia’s sparkling Harbor with its many sail boats and super yachts, or dining at any of the world-class restaurants—including break fast at Fouquet’s, Shellona on Shell Beach for lunch, and La Petite Plage for dinner and a fun night out—St. Barths is equal parts lux ury and simplicity, making it a dreamlike destination filled with all of life’s pleasures.

The Masters of Couture

“Balenciaga!” was the final word of Myrtle Snow as she was burned at the stake, in what was one of American Horror Story’s most iconic moments to date. This campy pop culture scene, aired decades after Balenciaga’s death, speaks volumes about the cultural legacy and impact of his designs. Currently on display at The Museum at FIT is “Dior + Balenciaga: The Kings of Couture and their Legacies,” which dives into how these two men shaped the haute couture landscape forever and created what are two of the most powerful houses in fashion today.

The exhibition focuses on the similarities and contrasts of Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga. One of the most striking similarities among the two is that both founded their Parisian fashion houses at the age of 42. However, it should be noted that Balenciaga had been known for years prior to his debut as a member of Paris’s couture elite, having established his house originally in San Sebastian, Spain in 1917 before subsequently moving it to Paris during the Spanish civil war. Dior

was, in many ways, the first example of the modern creative director that so many fashion houses have adopted today. Less technically hands-on in the creation of the garments themselves, his expertise was sketching, working with the seamstresses, and serving as the lead behind the business operations. Conversely, Balenciaga was a true couture dressmaker, involved in every aspect of the production of his garments and referred to by Dior as “the master of us all.”

Together, both men redefined the way women dressed post World War II. “Dior strove to banish the deprivation of the war years; he modernized the corseted shape of the Belle Époque,” says Patricia Mears, deputy director and curator of MFIT and curator of the exhibition. Throughout the exhibition, gowns are displayed side by side and much of the early work is hard to distinguish between the two creators. But it is the subtle shapes and stitches of the design that give viewers clues as to which belongs to Balenciaga and Dior.

One of Balenciaga’s most famous customers was the eccentric Kentucky-born Countess Mona Von Bismarck. Voted best dressed woman in the world in 1933 by Chanel, Balenciaga, and other top designers of the time, her love of Balenciaga knew no bounds. After her train derailed carrying much of her wardrobe, she famously bought over 150 Balenciaga dresses to replenish her collection. But it is her reaction to Balenciaga’s decision to close the house in 1968 that is perhaps the greatest testament to his genius.

Countess Von Bismarck locked herself away to grieve in her Capri villa for three days. It’s these anecdotes that make fashion so fascinating. That designers can move their patrons so.

Dior has had its own share of notable fashion devotees, including the Queen Mother and

Princess Margaret, who chose a Dior cream 21st birthday dress, one of the most elegant pieces in fashion history. And like Balenciaga, Dior’s passing left the fashion world grief-stricken, with his funeral attended by over 2,500 friends, colleagues, and patrons.

Since closing the house of Balenciaga, new life was given to Nicolas Ghesquière when he took the helm from 1997 to 2012. The designs of Ghesquière during his tenure at Balenciaga are considered a second golden age for the brand and are still highly coveted, fetching jaw-dropping prices for his now vintage looks. Demna Gvesalia has put his own stamp on the brand since 2015, originally leaning into the more streetwear couture vibe for which he has become so well known. More recently, he has brought a new level of sophistication to his couture shows, with his last presentation featuring Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, and Kim Kardashian gracing the runway in Gvesalia’s Balenciaga.

Since the untimely passing of Christian Dior in 1957, there have been several designers who have shaped the brand. Yves Saint Laurent, who worked closely under Dior, became the heir to the house upon his death. The brand was then carried on for many years by Marc Bohan. John Galliano brought a new level of fame and recognition to the brand during his tenure from 1996 to 2011. Galliano’s couture shows were nothing short of glamorous showstoppers, with most dresses being instantly museum worthy. Today, the brand’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri designs clothes for the modern woman that are functional, feminine, and fanciful. Perhaps what brings the entire story full circle is that Chiuri just received the 2022 Couture Council Award last month from the Couture Council of the Museum at FIT.

Diana’s Everlasting Style

The ’80s are back and no one better illustrated ’80s-era style than Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana was not afraid to break style boundaries, and she did it well—creating trends that were praised and imitated by her champions worldwide (no one will ever forget the time she wore a choker given to her by Queen Elizabeth II as a headdress in Melbourne in 1985). When American prep sailed in on the wave of The Official Preppy Handbook, polo shirts and penny loafers had become the building blocks of countless women’s wardrobes—along with oversized blazers, tapered jeans that could be tucked into cowboy boots, puffed-sleeves, power suits by day, and sparkling sequins by night.

Diana’s rise to prominence during the 1980s included embracing some of the decade’s key trends. On the heels of The Official Preppy Handbook, released in 1980, England produced a handbook of its own in 1982, focusing on the UK’s stereotypical upper-middle class “Sloane Ranger”. Transpose Newport or Martha’s Vineyard for the Cotswolds or somewhere in Surrey, and the prototypical British “Sloane” was very much a manifestation of the American prepster—so hinted Ann Barr and Peter York in the title of their renowned book, The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook. Barr, then features editor of Harper’s and Queen, and York, an aspiring writer and astute observer of social groups and behaviors, were focused on the lifestyles of upper-middle class Londoners who populated Chelsea (hence the moniker, after Chelsea’s Sloane Square). Female Sloanes, often involved in equestrian activities, were frequently spotted in 1970s London wearing silk scarves wrapped around the back of their heads and distinctively tied between the tip of their chins and bottom lips—masking the lower part of their faces— warranting the “Lone Ranger” reference.

Lady Diana Spencer embodied a Sloane Ranger to a T, with her Barbour jackets, printed Fair Isle sweaters, Peter Pan collars, and pearls paired effortlessly with wellies—stylish without being radical, clever perhaps but not overly intellectual, pretty but not strikingly beautiful, and modern enough to appreciate bands like Duran Duran (and perhaps even dance along to the beat)... And if a Sloane’s romantic notion of fulfilling manifest destiny should culminate in marrying “within the club”, then Diana’s saying “I do” to a prince won that race by a landslide.

As ’80s fashion returns, here’s a look back at some of Diana’s greatest moments, many of which are still available to this day. ◆

21 Years of Libertine

& The Creative Genius Behind It

by A lex A nder H A nkin Q 74/ FALL 2022

While not a household name, Johnson Hartig, designer of the fashion line Libertine, has created a brand revered by his loyal fans for its chic yet witty design. Hartig started a career in advertising before leaving to experiment with fashion design alongside friend and Fischerspooner band member Cindy Greene, ultimately launching Libertine in 2001. The brand became an overnight sensation and now, 21 years later, Hartig has achieved international success dressing celebrities in Hollywood, from Cher to Brad Pitt. I recently caught up with Hartig to discuss his experience in the fashion industry.

Alexander Hankin: How did you get into fashion?

Johnson Hartig : I always loved fashion growing up in the ’80s. My grandmother taught me how to sew a straight stitch using my mother’s sewing machine and then I started creating pieces for fun—just by cutting and winging it. It was in my DNA. Fast forward to the ’90s, I was acting in commercials in Los Angeles for work but in my free time I would routinely take apparel apart and then put pieces back together, incorporating old ribbons and patches—little bits and dabs. One day a buyer of Maxfield saw something that I was wearing and asked me to make some for the store, so I started with small batches. They sold out within 30

minutes, so I had to quit my job and focus primarily on Libertine, ultimately leading me to sell clothes all around the world.

AH: I know you have our own atelier. Are your clothes couture?

JH: I don’t consider my clothes couture since we’re not making clothing specifically to fit client bodies, but they are each uniquely handmade. All of my creations grow out of unending creativity. It’s clothing that is individualistic and expressive with a real heart and soul.

AH: What are some of your favorite places to draw inspiration for your pieces?

JH: I’m insatiable and before the Internet I would look at galleries and museums. I would also get inspired while traveling. My family traveled a lot when I was a teenager, so I had been to many places by the time I was 16 and I think that instilled something in me—a curiosity for everything around me and the way things work. My mind can’t settle until I figure something out, whether it’s a puzzle or a solution to a problem. I’m all about curiosity.

AH: Are there any collections that stand out?

JH: We only started presenting official collections in 2010 or 2011. The newest collection is always the most exciting to me. I’m incredibly fortunate because I’ve never had a lapse in creativity—it just always comes when I need it to, and I often really surprise myself.

AH: What can we look forward to?

JH: We recently discovered new ways to apply interesting hand details. About 90% of our clients are females, and this season there’s a women’s jacket that’s covered with hand beading and feathers. It’s the closest to couture that we’ve done so far.

AH: You’ve worked with so many big celebrities. Can you recall an interaction that was particularly memorable?

JH: Karl Lagerfeld used to come to our SoHo studio and buy every single piece. There was one time that he didn’t show up, so I decided to just pick out a bunch of looks for him and took them to The Mercer. I walked in carrying my little dog under one arm and two big bags of clothing for Karl in the other, and he told me to come up to the room so he could try them on. Karl noticed that I was looking at the beautiful bathtub in the room. He told me he was going to dinner and that I should take a bath while he was gone. An offer I couldn’t refuse!

AH: Your career is iconic, and I love how hands-on you are. Can you talk about your approach to design?

JH: I am hands-on, thank you! I just can’t keep my hands off and I think that resonates. My devoted clients have seen that and appreciate it. That’s probably one of the reasons we’ve been a success for 21 years. Even though we are a small company, the amount of business we do is incredible! It makes it worth the time, energy, and love that we put into making these clothes.

QUINTESSENTIAL STYLE

AH: That’s amazing. I still have some original skull pieces that I bought from you when I was in high school!

JH: The skulls—we were really the first to bring them back after decades. I’m really proud of that. There’s so much that we’ve done that has revolutionized the fashion industry. For a small brand, the influence we’ve had on much larger houses has been substantial.

AH: I read that Christian Lacroix is your design hero—is this true?

JH: Absolutely! Christian Lacroix and Emanuel Ungaro were my design heroes along with Lagerfeld. When I’m feeling

sad, I’ll visit YouTube and watch Lacroix shows from the ’80s and ’90s. They make me feel the same way as I do when I listen to Mozart. Now, Christian Lacroix and I are Instagram friends and DM each other so it’s come full circle. I’m so happy to have him recognize my work.

AH: This has been so amazing- thank you! To wrap things up, is there any advice you would give a young designer reading this?

JH : I think you should avoid the Internet as much as you can, have innate curiosity, and look, learn, watch, emulate, and think critically.

Maybourne Hotel Group’s

First U.S. Outpost in Beverly Hills

The Maybourne Hotel Group has long been celebrated by high society in London as an iconic luxury brand due to its three legendary hotels—Claridge’s, The Berkeley, and The Connaught—with origins that go back over 200 years. More recently, the group has expanded its footprint outside of the UK with the opening of The Maybourne Riviera on the Côte d’Azur, France, as well as The Maybourne Beverly Hills, its first North American property, which it acquired in 2019. On a recent visit to Los Angeles, I experienced first-hand what has made the hotel an instant success and a celebrity magnet.

The Maybourne Beverly Hills mixes the brand’s impeccable white glove service and luxury ac commodations with the quintessential Southern California coastal ambiance. Located at the site of the former Montage Hotel in the heart of the neighborhood, the hotel is ideally situated a couple of blocks from high-end shopping on Rodeo Drive, and a stone’s throw from top restaurants like Spa go, with a complimentary Rolls-Royce awaiting as transportation. Contemporary luxury coalesces

with laidback yet cheery vibes in the lobby of the nine-story hotel, where you’re immediately immersed in the design sensibility. As is the case with every Maybourne hotel, art plays a prominent role. Neutral palettes with pops of color are seen throughout the ever evolving art collection—featuring works from both international and Californian artists, including “Vandal Gummy” by WhIsBe, a giant statute of a blue bear holding a Department of Corrections sign.

The hotel is also home to a growing collection of top culinary experiences. Off the lobby, you will find the new Maybourne Bar, which was designed by world renowned interior designer André Fu and features a spectacular bar carved from solid Turkish silver onyx. The narrow space is an intimate setting to sip a cocktail, rem iniscent of the Painter’s Bar at Claridge’s. Equally impressive are the drinks served by Head Mixoloigst Chris Amirault, who offers his own spin on the classics, such as the Maybourne Vodka Martini with chocolate bitters. At the other end of the lobby, there is a super casual European-style café for grab-and-go pastries, light meals, and drinks, as well as, more notably, the hotel’s al fresco Terrace restau rant, arguably one of the best in the city. The charming Terrace restaurant overlooks the Beverly Cañon Gardens and offers all-day dining. Ideal for dinner or weekend brunch, the menu features out standing pastas like the Fresh Clam Linguine and Homemade Corn Agnolloti, as well as delectable meats and fishes, from Lamb Chops Over Charcoal to a Grilled Whole Branzino. Venture up to the third

floor after dinner and you will find an exclusive reservations-only Cigar and Whiskey Bar, with a humidor that houses more than 1,000 cigars from the Caribbean and Central America and a lengthy whiskey list to complement the smoke. The cozy lounge, with wood paneled interiors and an outdoor balcony, is a hidden gem within the hotel, requiring the front desk to escort guests up. Adding to its exclusivity, it’s just one of three places in Beverly Hills where smoking is permitted.

When not enjoying the bars and restaurants, guests can lounge at the cabana-lined rooftop pool and take in sweeping views of Hollywood Hills and the iconic sign, or book from the menu of spa treatments, which includes massages and facials. Even without an appointment, the spa ex udes tranquility, with large locker rooms featuring saunas and relaxation rooms, plus a breathtaking serene mineral pool surrounded by soaring mosaics. Just around the corner from the spa is a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, including Peloton bikes, Woodway tread mills, and dumbbells by Pent.

Not to be outdone by the amenities, the guest rooms are airy and spa cious, and feature marble bathrooms, 600-thread linens, and upscale ap pliances, providing upmost comfort tailored to the contemporary guest.

“Maybourne Hotel Group is widely recognized for its legendary service standards and creative energy. The Maybourne Beverly Hills thoughtfully embraces that legacy of innovation while celebrating a meeting of authen tic Californian spirit with European style,” said Eugene Leonard, General Manager of The Maybourne Beverly Hills. “From artfully redesigned guest rooms and suites to lively new dining destinations, nothing is more important to us than continuing to build upon a contemporary yet inviting atmosphere for our guests and local community to experience, all within the heart of Beverly Hills.”

British Accent

Five years after Michael and Paula Bickford proposed the renovation of two landmarked structures to create a new kind of private club in Palm Beach, akin to the renowned species of discreet establishments scattered throughout London’s West End, November will see the official debut of Carriage House, a members-only lunch, dinner, and night spot that seems tailor-made for the changed and somewhat “democratic” social scene in the venerable resort town.

As one charter member of Carriage House commented: “the three most highly prized clubs—Bath & Tennis, Sailfish, and granddaddy of them all, The Everglades—are impossible to get into, so the timing of the Bickford’s venture, which is similar to London’s popular 5 Hertford Street, is somewhat impeccable”. Not surprisingly, the PB “drumbeat” resounds with rumors of other new clubs close on their heels. In the

past five or six years, Palm Beach has been revived by the influx of well-heeled sorts from all parts, with savvy hoteliers and restaurateurs heeding the call for buzzy, smartly designed outposts and reinventions of the island’s traditional watering holes and gathering spots.

The Florida playground of the rich and famous—and infamous— has become a central player on the international landscape of younger, wealthy types in search of a place geared toward their tastes and access - not a stiff and exclusive institution with old school rules and family traditions. Think Gen-X over boomers, with a few boldfaced exceptions.

After a soft opening last spring, members and guests were impressed by the exotic and layered interior spaces coupled with the high level of cuisine at Carriage House. “I can imagine going there

not only for dinner, but as a place for a pre-meal cocktail or nightcap,’ said one charter member. Another thought the place seemed comfortable and convivial—and would be a “local” for a certain portion of the population during the high season. Members are generally hesitant to discuss the club’s dynamic, but are overwhelmingly positive in assessing it, with great food and ambience key in their impressions, and a hopeful prediction that Carriage House will be a resounding success, in a town where growth continues unabated.

Carriage House has faced many hurdles in its path to realization. The town’s notorious regulations were challenging to overcome. The Bickfords were granted permission to open after agreeing to 31 conditions imposed by the Town Council in a usage agreement, covering hours of operation, size of rooms within the two-building club, soundproofing, number of members (about 230), parking and other restrictions. The club has been the talk of the town, with much speculation about the cost of an individual adult membership (no corporate memberships are to be offered), whether membership has been capped (it hasn’t), and how one can go about garnering an invitation to join.

The club’s main portion, 264 South County Road, at the southern corner of the entrance to the historic Phipps Plaza enclave, is an

original 1930 Addison Mizner-designed structure. It once served as the office and trading floor of E.F. Hutton, who at the time was married to Marjorie Merriweather Post (the two resided at Mar-aLago, the Palm Beach estate the couple built together). Renowned Spanish interior designer Luis Bustamante created the luxuriously appointed “bespoke” series of rooms throughout Carriage House, and the menus of Mediterranean cuisine are “curated” by chef Mathias Gervais, with Japanese choices available as created by Shuji Hiyakawa. The wine cellar won’t disappoint either. No posting is permitted on club grounds, affording members and guests the freedom to carry on as they like without fear of getting “caught” on social media. “We fell in love with the iconic 264 Mizner building commissioned by E.F Hutton and the adjacent 270 building” says Paula Bickford. “Our vision was to preserve these historic buildings and to provide a cultural contribution to the town of Palm Beach”.

As a sage and longtime observer of the Island’s social scene wisely commented: “There are many Palm Beaches, and Carriage House can succeed by effusively serving the evolving taste of these most recent arrivals”.

Carriage House will celebrate its grand opening in November 2022. Located at the entrance of the iconic Phipps Plaza, Carriage House is comprised of the two buildings at 264-270 South County Road. The club worked diligently to preserve and restore the original features of its two primary structures.

Q 88/ FALL 2022

> LoveShackFancy LoveShackFancy debuted its Spring/Summer 2023 Collection with a celebration at the Cooper Hewitt Museum on the Upper East Side. Born and raised in New York, Creative Director Rebecca Hessel Cohen’s presentation was a nod to her love for the city—which is why she selected a venue situated across the street from Nightingale-Bamford, where she attended high school. After de signing “the ideal bridesmaids dresses” for her fairy-tale wedding, Cohen found ed LoveShackFancy in 2013 with a collection of fanciful silk dresses infused with modern femininity. The brand’s look is now defined by flattering silhouettes, soft hues, and intricate lace, with an emphasis on whimsical details such as hand-dyed fabrics, enchanting vintage-inspired romantic floral prints, ruffles, and bows. The SS23 Collection carries this sensibility to the next chapter, with exaggerated notions of hyper-femininity and dopamine dressing. Models donned pearly pink, vibrant yellow, pale lavender, willow green, soft ivory, and electric fuchsia with flirtatiously short taffeta bow minis, whisper-thin ruffle two-piece sets, twists on tweed power suiting, and elegant cut-slip dresses with lace appliqué. Further exemplifying her love for the Big Apple, the looks feature a range of botanical prints inspired by the New York Botanical Garden—from twirl-worthy floral embroidered blush slips to blossoming bubble dresses and dramatic lace-hemmed gala gowns with handmade chiffon rosettes designed for dressing up. The collection also includes updates to the brand’s best-selling butterfly and floral-embossed pumps and sandals, and new styles like boots, platform mules, and pearl-adorned heels.

< Veronica Beard Sisters-in-law Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard founded their namesake brand in 2009 to celebrate the women who inspire them—the doers and the makers, the movers and the shakers. “We believe that the dream wardrobe must work for real life. Look good, feel good, do good,” explained the pair. The Spring/Summer 2023 Collection, presented at Spring Studios, as always, was designed for the women who are happy in their busy lives—with functionality and lifestyle in mind. Models donned classic yet trendy workwear and versatile suiting, and new versions of the iconic Veronica Beard Dickey Jacket. Patterns seen throughout the collection include heavy embroidery, basketweave leather, sequin embellishments, layering, wide-leg denim, skirt suits, and blazers constructed in fresh shapes.

> Fendi Fendi presented its Resort 2023 Collection at the Ham merstein Ballroom in New York with a special celebration for the anniversary of the brand’s iconic Fendi Baguette bag, which was first designed in 1997 by Silvia Venturini Fendi—the brand’s cur rent Artistic Director of Accessories, Menswear, and Children. “It was a special day when I designed this bag; the stars aligned. The horoscope said it was a Fendi day,” recalled Fendi. The brand is still releasing iterations of the timeless bag—which can be con sidered utilitarian or decorative, depending on its material and size. Fendi’s Creative Director, Kim Jones, tapped longtime icons to design their own collections of the Baguette bag, including his former boss at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Tiffany & Co., Por ter, and Sarah Jessica Parker—with the stipulation that each col lection represent the person or brand’s unique relationship with the Fendi Baguette. For instance, the bag went viral after Sarah Jessica Parker proclaimed, “It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette!” on an episode of Sex & the City. That statement is now inscribed inside of all of Sarah Jessica Parker’s capsule bags, which are embroi dered in degradé sequins with a palette of purple, wasabi, baby pink, or soft blue. Sarah Jessica Parker was among the star-stud ded crowd at the show, along with other notables including Kim Kardashian and Naomi Watts. “I didn’t want to do a traditional ‘collection’ for the anniversary. Rather it’s a celebration of a time, of the moment the Baguette became famous. I relate that time to a sense of freedom in excess and fun—both qualities the Baguette possesses,” expressed Jones.

Patbo For Creative Director Patricia Bonaldi, the PatBO Spring 2023 Collection is both a forward-looking evolution and a return to her couture beginnings. Inspired by the 1960s, the collection features a mix of textures through hand beading and embroidery combined with high-tech fabrics and cutouts. Set against a black and white palette with pops of kinetic color and psychedelic print, geometric cut-outs and handmade flowers revealed influences from decades past with a nod to the future. Models walked the runway at The Atri um at Surrogate’s Court dressed in 39 looks that had all been handcrafted at Bonaldi’s Brazilian atelier. Each showcased the brand’s artisans’ skills—with intricate beading, silk flower ap pliqués, and avant-garde construction. Citing style icons like Twiggy and Jane Birkin as her muses, Bonaldi also included denim and easy-to-wear shift dresses among her looks. An eye-catching pop pink floor-grazing fringe gown made from individually hand-strung glass tube beads (which took more than two months to complete) graced the finale.
