EDITOR’S LETTER

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” Rather demonstrative for the typical physicist, but, then again, Albert Einstein is anything but typical, being history’s most profound genius. What I believe the man who brought us his theory of relativity seems to be touching on is the ease and simple pleasure with which any “task” is accomplished when talent is discovered and a person is able to put that skill to work. The more fulfilled one feels with their accomplishments, the more any job becomes less of an obligation—and more a means of entertainment. The road to self-realization and fulfillment is often less obvious than one might hope, but, as Sylvia Plath wrote, “The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” Everyone knows that amazing gush of energy and excitement that arises when you realize that you are good at something. This could be anything from how to tie a cherry stem into a bow with your tongue or how to construct a new national landmark. Or it could be how to create beautiful, sculpture-esque, postwar America–inspired clutches from plastic, acrylic, and metal, as in the case of Brett Heyman, founder of the vintage-style acrylic clutch and handbag line Edie Parker, named after Heyman’s daughter. Jamie Yike offers a closer look at the talented designer and her clever clutches. Another brilliant creative mind, Q and Quest Fashion Director Daniel Cappello (and published author of The Ivy League, from Assouline), sits down with our friend Kate Pickett, accomplished entrepreneur and mother of three. In 2008, Kate founded Pickett’s Press, the custom-letterpress, bespoke stationery company. Daniel shares the latest and greatest new products and ventures transpiring at Pickett’s Press. At Q magazine, we work in a creative environment and we see lots of talented creators pass through our doors and across our desks, from our subjects to our writers. None is more equipped at their craft than our very own Liz Smith, who always delivers an honest, upfront, and often entertaining account of celebrities’ lives in her Living Legends column. This time she writes on Jane Fonda, giving readers a personal and inspired portrayal of the two-time Oscar-winning actress. I am especially excited to introduce our newest Q team member, Alex Travers, with whom I worked on this issue’s fashion roundup. Our roundup is full of current looks with a nod to classic, effortless style. Having pored through countless collections, we present fashions that meet top trends while remaining true to our belief in timeless style. We hope you Counterclockwise, from top right: Stuart Weitzman’s Hitchup have as much fun perusing our picks as we had selecting them. shoe; a look from Angelo Marani’s Autumn 2013 runway show; And as you sail through spring and off into summer, I will leave three Baccarat rings; a striped, pearlescent Edie Parker clutch you with another Albert Einstein quote, which happens to be one with gold latch; a look from Akris’s Spring 2013 collection; a of my favorites: “The woman who follows the crowd will usually daisy brooch by Tiffany & Co.; a look from the Burberry Prorsum go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is Spring 2013 line; a pair of Hermès driving gloves; a portrait likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.” u of Jane Fonda; a Perrin Paris handbag; Jenny Packham added a ter Borch–like shimmer to her Fall Autumn 2013 collection.

CONTRIBUTORS

Liz Smith > Liz calls herself the 2,000-year-old gossip columnist. These days she’s been having fun with her website, which features twenty famous women: WowOWow.com (aimed at the largest demographic coming on the web—women who weren’t born yesterday!). In her latest “Living Legend” column for Q, Liz looks back at the indelible career of Jane Fonda, whose films and personal life have always been a source of great interest. Liz looks at the risks and choices Fonda made, her highs and lows, and how she always managed to come up on top, even to this day.

52

Jamie Korey > A Manhattan real estate czar for the past seven years, Jamie Korey has recently transitioned into business development for start-up “IvyConnect.” With her international roots—she grew up in the Middle East and Europe—Jamie combines two of her passions with IvyConnect: travel and business. She’s had the privilege of visiting over 35 countries throughout her life, and hopes to apply this global experience toward helping her company connect influential and inspiring people around the world.

70 Daniel Cappello > As the fashion director of both Quest and Q, Daniel keeps a watchful eye on beautiful things. As such, it’s no surprise that he writes in this issue about Kate Pickett and her luxury stationery line, Pickett’s Press. “Kate brings a personal and custom touch to everything she creates, which is why she has such a devoted following in New York, Palm Beach, and beyond,” explains Daniel. In addition to “Pickett Perfect,” Daniel also contributes a piece that looks at Terry O’Neill’s most memorable photographs, “Shots In Time,” p. 76.

42 < Alex Travers Upon graduating from Cornell University—his thesis covered fashion’s role in ancient Greece and Rome—Alex Travers went to work at a contemporary art gallery in SoHo. But the constraints of the gallery world blocked out his other passions. Born in New York City, Alex inhaled art and fashion exhibitions whenever he had a free second. For his first story in Q, Alex mined the Spring-Summer 2013 runway shows for the latest and greatest in trends. He is currently the assistant editor at Quest and Q, residing on the Upper East Side.

66 < Jamie Yike A former member of the Quest and Q teams, Jamie Yike is a classically trained ballet dancer who studied at the Kirov Academy and the Harid Conservatory. Her career has evolved beyond magazines and she now teaches pilates on the Upper East Side. Jamie hails from Texas, but has lived in New York for nine years with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Herman. For the Spring 2013 issue of Q, she shares a story about Edie Parker, a company offering a collection of clutches designed by Brett Heyman.

2 Leslie Caron, who was born in France to a Broadway-performing American mother and French-chemist father, began her career as a ballerina. It was Gene Kelly who discovered her in the Roland Petit company Les Ballets des Champs-Elysées, and who quickly cast her to appear opposite him in the 1951 musical An American in Paris. As it turned out, she would go on to be one of the few dancers or actresses to have danced with Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Rudolf Nureyev. This spring, add some floral and colorful jewelry to your collection and you’ll be dancing like a prima yourself.

3 Hedy Lamarr, born in Vienna in 1913 as Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, was more than just a beauteous actor—she was also a brainy inventor (of an early technique for spread-spectrum communications and frequency hopping). Her strikingly dark and “exotic” looks earned her accolades as “the most beautiful woman in Europe,” per Max Reinhardt. When she dressed up, especially in vivid jewels, she could pull out all the stops, from necklaces to rings and earrings—all to dazzling effects. Now’s the time to be inventive and add Lamarr-like glamour to your life with bold pearls, stacked bracelets, and Indian rings.

High Time For Heels Britt Ekland is the woman with the golden locks who famously played a Bond girl in The Man with the Golden Gun. Though she was born in Sweden, the actress has become a national icon in the United Kingdom, the country she has long called home. Apart from singing, acting, and living a “high society” kind of life, Ekland endures to this day as a style muse and model.

In the game of life, one of the greatest accessories for winning is the ability to keep your cool. The French call it sang froid—literally “cool blood”—a coolness of mind, a certain composure, especially in the moments when the board shifts, the pieces tumble, and the rules change. No matter what life might throw at you, any pair of these shades for spring is sure to keep you looking—and acting—cool.

Two Pieces, One Love Ursula Andress, who starred opposite Sean Connery in the James Bond flick Dr. No, made one of the most memorable entrances ever in the scene in which she emerges from the sea in a simple white bikini. It’s hard to tell who or what made the bigger splash—Andress herself, or her stark-white two-piecer. One thing, however, is for sure: no matter which way you cut it, a good bikini goes a long way in keeping you at your chicest on the beach.

French Influences Audrey Hepburn, with her undeniable elegance, has come to stand for the understated woman par excellence. Born in Brussels, made famous while parading through Paris in tiny ballet flats, and eventually calling Switzerland her home, she was a uniquely European standard-bearer of style. And, like any fashionable woman (European or not), she knew to turn to the French for their inherent sense of chic. This spring, with the likes of some of these labels—from Chanel to Hermès, Assouline to diptyque—you, too, can elevate the status of your style, through accessories alone.

Jane Fonda starred opposite Jennifer Lopez in Monster in Law (2005). > Opposite: The actress, as featured in promotional materials for Sunday in New York (1963).

“Know Thyself” said Socrates or Solon of Athens or Pythagoras—one of those old Greeks. But this ancient bit of wisdom might be the raison d’etre of Jane Fonda’s life. For seventysomething years, Jane Fonda has conducted a strenuous public search for herself. She is one of the most talented, deeply complex, and infuriating actresses ever to achieve great fame. Back in 2005, when I read her superb autobiography, My Life So Far, I was struck by how raw and honest it was. There was something aching tentative about it. It seemed to me a memoir of a woman still

feeling her way through life, still trying to figure herself out. And yet, when I interviewed her only weeks after reading the book, she said I was reacting to “my edgy energy. I have never been more at peace.” Perhaps. But being at war with herself is the quality that infused the best of Jane Fonda’s work. There was no mystery to Fonda onscreen. She was right there, in your face, real and right-on. (Don’t tell her that, however. She’ll only chuckle and say something like, “I wish I agreed.”) Today, Jane says “Acting was only part of what I did, and do.” Given the great chances she took with her career, including a 15-year hiatus from the screen while married to media mogul Ted Turner, that seems to be true. But when she

was young, being famous was an all-consuming obsession. Some who knew her in her early years even compared her to that most driven of superstars, Barbra Streisand! (Except, Jane liked to be recognized, and enjoyed giving autographs— at least during her Roger Vadim period, when she was known as the American Brigitte Bardot.) Perhaps this drive to be a star was nothing more than trying to impress her famous and famously distant father, the iconic Henry Fonda. After the suicide of their mother Frances, Jane and her brother Peter saw their father marry a young socialite—only nine years Jane’s senior. (Jane was 12 at the time of her mother’s death.) Fonda would marry again—several times. Jane idolized and mythologized her father, and could not disconnect his warm screen image to what she saw as the chilly reality. She spent her own life seeking his

approval—and even when he approved of her, it was never enough. This powerful woman, who represents feminism and standing up for what you believe, devoted a great deal of her life seeking “approval” in all her men, making herself into what they wanted her to be. When all she really wanted to be was “daddy’s girl.” For Vadim, she became a sex-symbol. For Tom Hayden, a political helpmate. For Ted Turner, a glamorous corporate wife. Then, as soon as she’d utterly transformed herself, she would rebel, finding out, sadly, that her men were less than appreciative. (Or faithful.) Her personal life has been a gruelingly committed search for identity. Jane Fonda’s career, however, has been a less tortured road to fulfillment. She modeled, initially, then segued to the stage in Tall Story, and showed enough promise to be snapped up for the movie version opposite Anthony Perkins. She played a cheerleader. It was not—for her—a promising start. She was informed that her bust was too small and her jaw was too big. She was discouraged, though she retained her “small” (perfect) bosom and would not submit to having her jaw broken. She was also determined not to type herself as “cheerleader type.” She had roles with more depth in Period of Adjustment as an insecure Southern bride, and a complete change of pace in Walk on the Wild Side as Kitty Twist, a wise-cracking gum-chewing, gartersnapping hooker, occupying a brothel run by a distinctly mannish Barbara Stanwyck. The film wasn’t much of a success, but with a cast that included the languid Capucine and a hilariously miscast Laurence Harvey, it has become a cult favorite. The film also showcased an aggressive sex appeal, previously untapped. Jane was then cast in a series of films that established her as comedienne with an intriguingly earnest, stubborn streak— the emerging new All-American girl, of the increasingly strident 1960’s. Sunday in New York, Barefoot in the Park, and especially Cat Ballou (schoolteacher-turned-outlaw) put her in upper echelon, box-office wise. Her acting was still in question, and would be questioned even more when she appeared in a series of films for Roger Vadim, that seemed to be steering toward a career focused on her sexuality and her beautiful body (a body that Fonda herself disliked and abused with bulimia.) This trend culminated with the sci-fi romp Barbarella. That marked the end of elevating Jane as an object, and so too, the end of her marriage to Vadim, which had produced a daughter, Vanessa. Jane returned to American filmmaking for They Shoot Horses Don’t They playing a bitter and desperate young woman, trying to win a dance marathon during the height of the Depression. Fonda scored her best reviews and her first

Oscar nomination. Two years later the golden statuette would be hers, for a sensational performance as the cynical call girl Bree Daniels in Klute. But by then, Jane Fonda was no longer the gritty comedienne or the Vadim-created sex-bomb. Now she was a far less glamorous figure—a dark-haired assertive anti-war protester. She had riled up conservative America, especially as the daughter of the man who embodied (onscreen) so many essentials of “real” America. But there was much worse to come. The following year, visiting North Vietnam, she was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft battery that was used to shoot down American planes. Although she insisted she had been “manipulated” into the situation and was horrified, the damage had been done. She was instantly demonized as “Hanoi Jane.” Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Americans never forgave her, and it was said her career was over. In fact, it was not. There were a few shaky years, but by 1977,

Q48

/ SPRING 2013

her political activism had tempered, and she was accepted in a series of smash hits—Fun with Dick and Jane, Coming Home (her second Oscar), Julia, The China Syndrome, Nine to Five, and On Golden Pond. This movie put her onscreen with Katharine Hepburn and, for the first time, with her bythen fragile father, Henry. The film contained much between the characters that seemed to echo the troubles of the two Fondas. It was cathartic for both, and won Henry an Academy Award. He was too ill to accept it so Jane did, in his place. He died soon after. Jane nabbed another Oscar nomination in 1986 for her role as the washed-up B actress of The Morning After. But by 1989 she was through with second hubby Tom Hayden, whom she had supported (emotionally and financially) in his quest for political office, and she was almost through with movies. Jane had transformed herself into a phenomenal fitness guru, through a series of videos and books. Her image, in spandex work-out gear became as iconic as her “Barbarella” pin-ups. She encouraged women to be as fit and as hard-bodied as any man. “Feel the burn!” she urged. And millions of women felt empowered to show off biceps, triceps and a stomach taut to the max. In 1991, Jane married Ted Turner the founder of CNN. She moved to Atlanta, and did not make another movie for 15 years! Fonda, though hardly “cause free” dedicated herself to Turner and his life—she was the perfect ornament on his arm, his helpmate and support. She continued as an advocate for women’s health and fitness, putting out eight more exercise videos. But, as in her past relationships, just as she had become all that Ted Turner wanted, Jane realized she had compromised once again. They divorced in 2001, but remain extremely amicable. Fonda made news in 2001 declaring she had become a Christian, though one with quite a liberal outlook. She made more news in 2005, when she finally returned to the screen in the comedy Monster-In-Law co-starring Jennifer Lopez. The film was a monster hit, and most of its success had to do with people wanting to see Jane Fonda— smokin’ hot at age seventy—back where she belonged. There would always be the unforgiving critical undertow of her past actions, but by far and large, Jane Fonda was a movie star who could still drag ‘em in. In 2009 she came back to Broadway in 33 Variations and scored a Tony nomination.


She has a pivotal role in HBO’s series “The Newsroom” and will soon be seen as Nancy Reagan in the Lee Daniels feature, The Butler. I spoke with Jane last year, prior to the release of her movie, Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. She laughed heartily when I said, “This should have been the title of your memoir!” I reminded her that I’d interviewed her for the first time in 1968, when she was with Vadim. At that time she said, “I just live the way that makes me happy…I find it such a fight in life to be happy and to love and be loved, that to try to fit into some kind of group conscience makes everything so much more difficult. I don’t want to hurt people. I don’t want to influence or offend.” Jane said, “I still don’t want to hurt or offend, believe it or not. Influence? Yes. For the things I believe in.” Such as her Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention: half of her Monster-In-Law salary went to that charitable organization. Jane played an aging hippie in Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, but she said “I know people are going to say, ‘Oh,

Q50

/ SPRING 2013

she’s just playing herself.’ But I didn’t know anything about that aspect of the cultural landscape. No flowers in the hair for me!” Jane spoke of finally being happy in her own skin, owning herself, her attractiveness, her being. And being glad it happened rather late in life. “It was hard to own who I am” she said. Who is Jane Fonda today? She said: “I am a 74-year-old woman who is sending a message to women, and to men as well. You don’t have to give up. You don’t have to accept a downhill decline into decrepitude, physically or mentally. And it’s okay for women to have muscles, be fit, have relationships, platonic or physical. It’s external and internal. It’s a staircase. You’re evolving. I think I’m a messenger. I think I’m a messenger of hope.” I think so, too. But I don’t think Jane Fonda has stopped evolving, no matter how happy she is in “her own skin.” More than any other celebrity, I connect Jane to the words of Walt Whitman: “The untold want by life and ne’er granted/Now, voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.” u

At our IvyConnect office we have a company dog named “Potato,” a fully loaded wet bar, and a larger collection of MacBook computers than the laptop section of the Apple Store.

In June 2012, I ran into an old friend of mine in Beirut, Lebanon. It was a warm summer night and we coincidentally happened to be at the same café (a popular rooftop lounge called Iris) so close to the Mediterranean Sea you could taste the salt water. Running into a friend from New York in the Middle East was unexpected, but what happened next was truly serendipitous. Having been in real estate, I had helped this friend, Beri Meric, and his roommate, Philipp Triebel, find their Manhattan apartment. On this warm Beirut summer night, Beri and I spent a few hours reminiscing, talking about business, and catching up on life. Then, over some traditional Lebanese cocktails, Beri suggested that I join his and Philipp’s start-up, IvyConnect. We spent weeks discussing potential roles and in what capacity I could join the team. I quickly learned in the start-up world that roles are constantly changing in order to accommodate

IvyConnect provides the vehicle for inspired people—from different industries and passions—to meet one another in a comfortable and trustworthy environment. Its goal is to provide an alternative way to meet new people in the broader IvyConnect newtork. Membership requires each applicant to be screened and approved by our membership committee, and while applicants do not have to have attended an Ivy League school in order to apply, they do have to be compelled by a premium concept and brand, represented by the Ivy concept. From New York to Los Angeles to London to Dubai to Hong Kong, over the next three years, IvyConnect will connect 500,000 of the most inspiring, social, ambitious, well-educated, and influential members in 50 cities around the world. IvyConnect members are intellectually curious, creative, philanthropic, and motivated, and are inspired to be a part of a community distinguished by these characteristics. Our hope is that through reading, learning, and hearing IvyConnect members’ stories, our members will always feel safe knowing that the people they are meeting in the IvyConnect network have been approved through our careful screening process. This component can be especially valuable when traveling and attending our IvyConnect events in other cities. Being a part of a start-up that has limitless possibilities has been an exciting transition. The growth potential within the IvyConnect model is truly endless, as our model is global. So, while my real estate days may technically be behind me, the skills that I acquired from that experience will prove useful. u

all be processed and organized on the web. With the evolution of the internet, human interaction is becoming obsolete.  We have online chat, email accounts, and a multitude of other developments that serve as preventative measures for traditional human interaction. And while we can’t stop the transition of our world’s organic development into a more virtual one, we can bridge the gap between our simpler and more primitive past with our progressive and technology-forward future. People don’t always have the time to network offline, but at the end of the day, there isn’t anything in the virtual space that can replace that first real handshake when two people “meet.” IvyConnect offers the perfect balance of offline and online interface for an inspired and like-minded demographic. Headquartered in New York City, IvyConnect is a membersonly community with a goal of connecting people via similar backgrounds, lifestyles, experiences, and elective dating opportunities. These five key branches­—also known as IvyIntro, IvySocial, IvyCard, IvyGive, and IvyDate respectively—provide unique appeal to our diverse members. Harvard Business School graduates and IvyConnect founders Beri Meric and Philipp Triebel created this precise formula of interactive angles:

Examples include IvyConnect preferred rates at five-star hotels, restaurants, spas, museums, clothing stores, and preferred access to nightlife venues globally. > IvyGive: Monthly charity partnerships that encourage members to get involved with philanthropic and notable causes. In December we asked members to bring a new, unwrapped toy for donation to Toys for Tots at our IvySocial event at The Darby. > IvyDate: The elective matchmaking option for those looking to date within the IvyConnect demographic.

Q U I N T E S S E N T I A L

S T Y L E

In 2010, Brett Heyman launched the vintage-style acrylic clutch and handbag line Edie Parker, named after her daughter. Before then, Heyman served as the director of public relations for Gucci, before which she held positions at Elle magazine, Giorgio Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana. Inspired by the original handbags carried by showgirls and style icons during the 1950s and 1960s (think Loulou de la Falaise, Charlotte Rampling, and Capote swans like Babe Paley, Gloria Guinness, C.Z. Guest, and Slim Keith), Heyman began creating her chic, clever clutches as wearable sculptures from plastic, acrylic, and metal. Her smooth, retro-inspired shapes—crescent, rectangular, and cubed—maintain classic appeal while gliding effortlessly onto today’s fashion landscape. Each Edie Parker design is meticulously handcrafted in America. Q > What was your inspiration for launching Edie Parker? Why clutches and how did you come to the decision to use the name Edie Parker? A > I have always loved fashion and especially vintage fashion. I started collecting vintage acrylic clutches from the 1950s and 1960s when I was in high school. They became increasingly difficult to find and I sought to make some for myself. As it often does, one thing led to another and here we are. Edie Parker is my daughter—the name is of course a nod to her, but also other chic Edies whose style I love like Sedgwick, Bouvier, Beal, and Kerouac.

Co u r te sy o f Be n Fi n k Sh ap i ro

Q > How did you come up with the other names for your clutches: Lara, Jean, and Flavia? A > Lara is my cousin who also collects vintage bags. For my wedding she lent me a vintage acrylic clutch that inspired the Lara. So of course I named it after her! Jean is my very chic grandmother and Flavia is my closest friend. She requested a very long clutch and I obliged. Q > What differentiates Edie Parker from other similar brands out there? A > The bags are very unique—each one is hand-made here in America, much in the way they were made in the 1950s. They are simultaneously modern and timeless, and they won’t show SPRING 2013/

wear the way traditional bags do. Each bag has a large mirror on the inside lid, which the ladies love. Much in the way a piece of jewelry or special accessory can, they have the unique ability to make any outfit. Q > Who is your target audience? A > Everyone! Some of the bags are more groovy than others, like the glow-in-the-dark ends or confetti chevron, and some are incredibly classic, like the nude pearlescent Lara with clear ends. There is a clutch for every woman and every occasion. Q > Who are your style icons and role models? A > Françoise Hardy, Loulou de la Falaise, Charlotte Rampling, and Betty Catroux. Pretty much, if you were French and in fashion in the ’60s, I love your style! Modern ladies whose style I covet are Emmanuelle Alt, Camilla Nickerson, and of course Ms. Kate Moss.

Q74

/ SPRING 2013

you like keeping your brand focused on one product, or do you see Edie Parker developing into one of the big lifestyle brands, similar to those you have worked for in the past? A > We want to stay focused on evening. The fabrication possibilities for the clutches are endless and we want to keep exploring that. We are also working on some new clutches that mix skins with acrylic, and some amazing acrylic-hinged bangles. Q > Edie Parker is definitely on the map! What was one of your most exciting moments early on? A >When Kate Hudson wore the nude pearlescent Lara clutch to the Metropolitan Gala in May 2011. The bags were brand new and she got them immediately. And anytime they are in a magazine I’m still thrilled and humbled! Q > Can you let us in on a brief explanation of how these beautiful pieces of art are made? A > It begins with the concept. I am always inspired by new colors, designs, etc. I also look to the past—Frank Stella and Ettore Sottsass are great inspirations for color and geometric graphics. Fabricating the bags is a three-step process, each of which is done here in America. First the sheets of acrylic are custom-color-created or poured with confetti and created; then the sheets are hand-cut, heated, and put on a form for a period of time. After they cool and dry they are cut in half, buffed, polished, hinged, mirrored, and clasped. u For more information, please visit www.edieparker.com.

there are some names that are synonymous with photo-

photography, capturing the likes of Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Sir Elton John, and Chuck Berry, and his oeuvre comprises a significant visual compendium of the history of rock and roll. His use of 35-mm. cameras on film sets and on the early pop-music shows of the ’60s gave way to a new visual art form that used photojournalism to revolutionize formal portraiture. He met the famous and the notorious and approached them both with the same unbiased, often sympathetic, eye. His snap of the shutter in the most candid and unguarded of moments resulted in some of the most iconic images of our time.

Pickett Perfect finds herself working in a back-of-house stock room, earning an hourly wage that’s less than that of even her first teenage summer job. But for Kate Pickett, paper has always been a passion. So it was only natural that she found herself—two Ivy League degrees and one stint on Wall Street later—in the back room at Kate’s Paperie, the fine-quality paper store in New York City. It’s as if Kate Pickett was born to be a paper-business professional. Today she is the president, founder, and head designer

of Pickett’s Press, the custom letterpress stationery company situated in an airy showroom on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. “Even as early as seven years old,” Kate recalls, “I can remember designing pretend menus for family dinners and creating birthday cards by hand. I have always loved drawing and I have always loved the weight, feel, and touch of paper.” The drawing part came naturally. With an art teacher for a mother, friends often joke that Kate was born with a paintbrush in her hand (her bachelor’s degree was in art history). And, as

a little girl, the first thing she’d do after returning from a party was to sit down and write a thank-you note. It was then that she noticed something: the nicer the paper, the more fun it was to write. And so a love of the beautiful and the bespoke was born. In the end, the stock room job paid off; it was there that she met a letterpress expert who is now her partner at Pickett’s Press. Founded in 2008, the firm specializes in letterpress stationery, digitally printed stationery, a home and accessories line (think salt-and-pepper shakers, playing cards, ice buckets, and iPhone covers), and—debuting this May—a first-ever engraving line, featuring both boxed and bespoke collections. In today’s high-end luxury stationery world, every competing firm must offer exceptional customer service and a diverse variety of offerings, but Pickett’s Press stands out in its commitment to one-of-a-kind design, with original hand-drawn illustrations done by Kate herself. It’s these custom illustrations—of clients’ homes and pets—that has earned Pickett’s Press an almost cultlike following on the Upper East Side. “We’ve never had a PR campaign,” Pickett says. “It’s always been word of mouth.”

And judging by Park Avenue mailrooms, the word is out. Open any uptown mailbox, and you’re bound to find a baby announcement, birthday invitation, or Christmas card bearing the Pickett’s Press stamp. “Christmas is my favorite time of year,” says Suzanne Johnson, wife of Jets owner Woody Johnson, “and I take our annual card very seriously. Kate and I collaborate to create something spectacular and unique! The proof is in the countless compliments my husband and I receive from family, friends, and especially fellow NFL owners.” Pickett’s devotion to impeccable quality and a highly personalized touch is evident in every unique color, font treatment, and hint of whimsy that define her products’ signature look. What is also evident is her devotion to New York City and the Central Park Conservancy, in particular. Pickett recently introduced a line of correspondence cards that benefit the conservancy’s Tree Trust program, which she has long supported. So, when minding your manners this spring, perhaps there’s no better way to say “thank you”—to your host, your friend, and even your city’s most beloved park—than with a trip to Pickett’s Press. u

Sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard launched their fashion line in the fall of 2010. Three years later, their teamwork shined at the duo’s Fall 2013 presentation at Bill’s Food & Drink. The place was packed with fashion’s haut monde. From delicate lace to Aztec prints, the Veronica Beard collection made quite an impression. Juxtaposed next to deer heads and stacked American drawings caged in gilded frames—the playfully sarcastic décor of the upstairs room at Bill’s—the clothes almost managed to take on lives of their own. No wonder everyone in attendance wore a smile.

1. joan blondell began her acting career early in life after winning a beauty pageant and landing roles as the smartaleck, sexy blonde. The 1930s proved to be the decade that defined her, and it was during this time that she and Glenda Farrell appeared in nine films together as a pair of gold diggers. We can only imagine the lengths her character would have gone to in order to score some of the timelessly romantic fashions featured here. 2. ralph lauren “Fan”cy a new clutch for evenings out on the town?

SPRING HOROSCOPES

Q112

Capricorn Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 Some people say, “Work hard, play hard”— you say, “Play hard, play harder.” In the past, weekends have started on Tuesday and ended on Sunday, but as you get older you need to get wiser. Limit the partying and you will become less of an animal to those around you. > Garnet earrings by David Yurman

Cancer June 21 to July 22

Aquarius Jan. 20 to Feb. 18 Luck is on Aquarius’s side. This summer be ready for thrills and one-of-a-kind experiences. Don’t be afraid to be bold and ask for what you want—while it may seem out of reach, those around you won’t be able to say no. Let the sun shine in; this is the age of Aquarius! > Amethyst necklace by Asprey

Leo July 23 to Aug. 23 Your need for approval has been a problem, causing you to be anxious about what your best friend, boss, or boyfriend/girlfriend thinks. But don’t worry, be happy! Gold stars for you, on all fronts. To relax, maybe treat yourself with a trip to the salon—lions love tending to their manes! > Peridot earrings by David Yurman

Pisces Feb. 19 to Mar. 20 You always know how to go with the flow, like a true little fish, but if you’re not careful, other people’s currents might be pulling you under. Assert yourself and lead the way this summer; throw the party, don’t just attend it. Everyone will RSVP with a big yes to the new you. > Aquamarine earrings by Asprey

Virgo Aug. 24 to Sept. 22 Summer is not the time to be pragmatic for the introverted Virgo. Follow your heart rather than your thoughts. Step out of your comfort zone and try something you’ve never done before. It may seem scary at first, but the rewards will bring pure pleasure. Dive in! > Sapphire earrings by Asprey

Aries Mar. 21 to Apr. 19 Where you lead, others follow—which is something to note, especially in the age of social media. If you haven’t already, sign up for Instagram and Twitter. Whether it’s a picture of your cappuccino or a tweet about the Rangers, people are dying to hear! > Diamond ring by Asprey

Libra Sept. 23 to Oct. 22 Applying your astounding, astrologically-bestowed patience, you’ve calmly waited out to the long winter, but enough is enough, and it’s time to devote that inner balance to happier causes. Strap on some skyscraper Christian Louboutin sandals. Try a headstand or two. Laugh. > Opal ring by Tiffany & Co.

Taurus Apr. 20 to May 20 There is little a bull loves more than attention and frivolity, so relish in foie gras tasting menus and unlimited rose. Be nice to your friends as you’ll need them when a horrible Leo (of Great Gatsby fame) or Aquarius (not compatible) stomps on your little bovine heart. > Emerald earrings by Asprey

Scorpio Oct. 23 to Nov. 21 In the words of Dorothy Parker: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit by me.” You, dear Scorpio, are all about secrets. Keeping them. Sharing them. But remember—there’s a difference between being a gossip, and being a Gossip Girl (XOXO). > Citrine necklace by David Yurman

Gemini May 21 to June 20

Sagittarius Nov. 22 to Dec. 21

Oh, Gemini. What are we to do with you? You are the epitome of a dichotomy, going back and forth between personalities. Work toward a better sense of self and you won’t regret as many of your decisions. (You know the one the stars are referring to...) > Pearl bracelet by Tiffany & Co.

Uh-oh. Your optimism has led you to believe that your finances were in a better state than they actually are. Did you committ to a share in the Hamptons that you can’t afford? Or did you splurge on a dress for the Fourth of July? Sorry, but it’s time to address the situation. > Turquoise earrings by Tiffany & Co.

/ SPRING 2013

When it comes to caring for others, you take the cake. Nurturing, for you, is second nature. Whether it’s making mom feel warm and fuzzy with a visit or adopting something warm and furry from the pound, do you! Everyone is always more appreciative than you know. > Ruby ring by Harry Winston
