46 WHERE DOTH THOU HAIL FROM, DEAR DIANA? As most of what we know of Diana, Princess of Wales, pertains to her life post-Charles, author Debbie Bancroft wonders what came before? “Was her path strategic?” she writes. “Who was the shy girl, peering up from beneath her famously swooped bangs?” Even today, Lady Di remains an enigma— loved for her kindnesses, questioned for her choices. 60 RUNWAY REVIEW Faced with unusual circumstances this year, writer Jared Brill examines the Fall collections of some of fashion’s biggest maisons and explains how they have adapted to the pandemic, especially during a time when couture reflects the present strangeness of our lives. 64 THE TIMELESS SPIRIT OF CHANEL Coco Chanel may have been no stranger to controversy, but Assouline’s new trilogy of books on the iconic fashion house seeks to celebrate the timeless spirit, signatures, and heritage of Chanel. 70 ROYAL STYLE IN THE MODERN DAY Jared Brill examines our interest in the fashions of royalty, showing how Kate Middleton has become fluent in the language of clothes.

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

EDITOR’S LETTER

I remember the excitement of Charles and Diana’s wedding when I was little. Even though I was all of six years old, I knew a lot about princesses—with my treasured collection of tiaras, fairy princess wings, magical wands, and assortment of pink tulle skirts—many of which were donned at various times throughout each day. Suddenly my parents were talking about a real-life princess. Wow. My sister and I were given bride and groom dolls of Charles and Diana to play with (a few years later we even got to miss a day of school to meet her in person at FAO Schwartz!). Back then, as young as I was, when my mother showed me a picture of the soon-to-be princess, I recall thinking that the girl in the photo looking back at me seemed quite unlike all of the other princesses I had encountered. She didn’t seem as delighted, or as excited. I didn’t envision her surrounded by birds, or mice, or little dwarves—about to passionately break into song (not that any royal Brits are particularly passionate, but then again, I was only six). Something about this princess seemed a little... blue? As well-versed Q Contributor Debbie Bancroft wisely asks, “Was the shy girl, peering up from beneath her famously swooped bangs, who she really was?” What came before Charles? Had the lonely, middle child of divorced parents—who had longed for her moment in the spotlight as a ballerina for the Royal Ballet, but was too tall, and too privileged to do so—been planning her future all along? The bashful girl who kept a picture of Charles over her bed while in school, telling friends, “I’d love to be a dancer, or the Princess of Wales…” Was she, in fact, far more clever than anyone had thought? If you’re like me and so many others, you’ve now devoured every season of “The Crown”. It was difficult to watch Diana’s character on screen in the latest Season 4—how fast and fraught with trouble her relationship with Charles really was, how much she struggled to gain the Royals’ acceptance. The lonely, stoic life of a Royal was not well suited for the young Spencer. On a brighter note, the fashion in the show is delicious: puffed sleeves, pink patterned sweaters, fluttery 80s gowns. If Diana has any power at all, it radiated in her own personal style. And speaking of fashion on television, don’t miss managing editor Alex Travers’ feature, “TV Brings Back Glamour When We Needed It Most”. Mandated quarantining in 2020 meant that almost everyone spent their fair share of time watching shows at home. We dressed down while tuning in, so on-screen style became a way to escape into a world where people still dressed up. Who knew chess could be so stylish as Anya Taylor paraded mod coats, polished turtleneck sweaters, and pussy-bow dresses in “The Queen’s Gambit”? And while she may have been undone figuratively, Nicole Kidman’s rustic chic look—leather skirts, Fair Isle sweaters, Boho coats—well, as Travers writes, “A woman scorned never looked so damn good”. And not to forget Emily Collins’ bright and bold choices in “Emily in Counterclockwise from top right: Chanel 3-Book Paris”—déroutant though they may have been, the show was fun to watch. Slipcase (Assouline); Vhernier Freccia bracelet in 18K rose Returning Q Contributor Elizabeth Kurpis brings us inside luxury bougold; Gabriela Hearst Leather Boots; Banniere Aspen tique and e-commerce platform, Fivestory. The highly curated shopping scarf; Hope Night Eau de Parfum; Princess Diana at a destination for apparel, accessories, and home decor just moved to its new banquet in 1983; Veronica Beard Martel Herringbone location on East 79th Street. And we’re excited to introduce recent Tufts Dickey Jacket; Asprey Bond Street Button Cuff in grad and ace intern Jared Brill, who takes a look at some of the latest in the Emerald; Anya Taylor starring in “The Queen’s fashion world from Balmain, Chanel, and more. Gambit”; Judith Leiber Couture Caiman Crocodile A final word about Diana—if one thing was true, she loved her children Envelope Clutch; Moncler Cat-Eye Sunglasses. with all of her heart. Diana’s devotion to Will and Harry was one of the princess’s greatest legacies. Perhaps we could all take a cue from Diana on that front, remembering her words, “Family is the most important thing in the world.” u

CONTRIBUTORS

Economist, Institutional Investor, and Forbes, Debbie landed in the social world she understood slightly better, writing for newyorksocialdiary. com and contributing to Town & Country and Elle Décor. She splits her time between NYC and Southampton, and visits L.A. often, as her son, Will, lives there (her daughter, Serena, is local). Debbie shares a glimpse at the early life of the woman who would become Diana, Princess of Wales—often referred to in short simply as, “The People’s Princess”. But who was Diana Spencer before Prince Charles?

Alex Travers > is the managing editor of Quest and Q magazines and, as always, remains passionate about writing travel and entertainment stories. In this issue, he takes a look at the fashion in three of T.V.’s hottest shows: “The Queen’s Gambit,” “The Undoing,” and “Emily in Paris.” Says Alex: “After a year spent mostly at home, I think we’re all ready to dress up and go out and travel again.” Alex, who rejoined the editorial staff at Quest after playing golf on professional mini tours for two years, enjoys competing in the 100-meter dash in his free time.

82 Jared Brill > Jared recently graduated from Tufts University in Boston and joined the Quest staff as an editorial intern for the winter season. In this edition, he takes a look at some of the latest in the fashion world from the likes of Balmain, Chanel, and more. “I wanted to take a look at some of the newest styles with an appreciation for the heritage of the maison’s aesthetic,” he notes. Nowadays, he is probably struggling to find the next show to binge on Netflix after exhausting just about every option.

Diana Ross began singing with friends as a teenager, and eventually formed the groundbreaking 1960s trio The Supremes, going on to have hits like “Come See About Me” and “You Can’t Hurry Love.” Ross left the group for a solo career in 1969, later reaching number one on the charts with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “Love Hangover”. Ross even starred in the films Mahogany and Lady Sings the Blues, earning her an Oscar nomination. She really can do it all, and with remarkable style! Let’s just say, “Ain’t no jewelry fine enough” is the unofficial motto of 2021.

5 Liza Minnelli, daughter of film director Vincente Minnelli and iconic entertainer Judy Garland, initially set her sights on becoming a pofessional figure skater, but in 1963 won a supporting role in the off-Broadway revival of the 1941 musical, Best Foot Forward. Her success brought her appearances on a number of television shows, including “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Tonight Show,” and launched the impressive career we all know her for today. This year, we looked back at some of her early fashion statements and decided to feature her as Winter Q’s 2021 “Jewelry” inspiration.

250 years ago,

we Americans said ‘Ta Ta’ to King George III, created a Constitution expressly to prevent supreme rule by one person (hmmm), lost a lot of tea, and spread our young, optimistic wings across our beloved new nation. But did we ever forget our English parents, and the ultimate British parents—the Royal Family? Most definitely not. As King George’s character in Hamilton reminds us, in perhaps the catchiest song of the show, “You’ll be back, la da da dee da…”. Professor Arianne Chernnock, Associate Professor of Modern British History at Boston University told The Huffington Post, “Our obsession with British royalty has been pretty much alive since 1776. As soon as we severed ties we were back to being fascinated, captivated really, by the Royal Family.” No less than President Obama commented, during Prince Charles’ visit to The White House in 2015, ‘I think it’s fair to say that the American people are quite fond of the Royal Family. They like them much better than they like their politicians.” A low bar, perhaps, but we are unquestionably if not smitten, certainly highly interested in the British Royal Family. And no one in that family has captured our attention more than Lady Di, “America’s Princess.” Diana’s 1981 wedding to Prince Charles was watched by an estimated 750 million people worldwide—a staggering number… before internet! And sadly, her funeral in 1997 was watched by 2.5 billion people—almost half of the world’s population at the time. Many of us have indelible memories of the

night we learned of her death. I was at a famously festive party on Meadow Lane in Southampton. Crowds began gathering around TVs as we listened in disbelief to the increasingly horrific news, leading to the staggering discovery that Lady Di had perished in an accident caused by paparazzi which—in many ways—had ultimately created her. She has never really left us. We follow and care about her children, Harry and William, as if they were members of our own families, and we wish she could be with us as we welcome the birth of each of her beautiful grandchildren. Couple this with our renewed interest in the Royals via Netflix’s The Crown (which we inhaled with a COVID-captive intensity), and here we are thinking about her ever more—left with the painful picture of Diana in the final episode of season 4, surrounded by a largely hostile family—all the while knowing what tragedy awaits. As most of what we know of Lady Di pertains to her life post Charles, I have always wondered, what came before? Was her

path strategic? Was the shy girl, peering up from beneath her famously swooped bangs, who she really was? While we may never know the answer to that question, learning more about her background brings us one step closer to her truth. Born into British nobility, Diana Frances Spencer was perfectly suited for her future role—in fact, many thought that’s why she was ‘chosen’. She was also young and ‘pure’, as the Windsors were very clear that the woman to wed Prince Charles— the woman who would someday be queen—must walk to the altar virgo intacta (some believe Charles might’ve married her because she was the last aristocratic virgin in London). Diana’s aristo cred is lengthy and runs deep. Her father, christened Edward John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, was a descendant (remote, but still) of King Henry VII. When his father died, he became the 8th Earl Spencer, although to family and friends he remained “Johnnie Althorp”. The Spencers have been a prominent family since the 15th Century, having amassed a fortune as sheep farmers in pre-Tudor times. Diana’s mother, Frances Shand Kydd, hails from an equally aristocratic family—one of even greater wealth than the Spencers. Frances Ruth Roche was born at Park House, on the Queen’s grounds at Sandringham, to 4th Baron Fernoy and Baroness Fernoy. The Baroness, otherwise known as Lady Fernoy (Diana’s grandmother), served as “Woman of the Bedchambers” (a title bearing more weight in royal court than on American soil), at which time she grew exceedingly close with Queen Elizabeth, who would later be dubbed The Queen Mother. It has long been thought that Lady Fernoy and the Queen Mother conspired to create Diana and Charles’ relationship. The Crown portrays Fernoy as having trained Diana in how to behave at

court after Charles and Diana were married. Regarding her part in colluding to forge a union between Charles and Diana, Lady Fernoy once remarked, “You can say that if you like – but it simply wouldn’t be true”. Furthermore, according to Andrew Morton’s 1982 book, Diana, Her True Story, Lady Fernoy was said to have counseled her granddaughter against the marriage, saying, “Darling, you must understand that their sense of humor and their lifestyle are different, and I don’t think it will suit you.” Fernoy strongly believed in the sanctity of marriage, a concept to which she was so committed that she was even compelled to testify against her own daughter (Diana’s mother) in court. Johnnie Althorp and Frances Roche were married in 1954, in a grand ceremony at Westminster Cathedral attended by Prince Phillip, Princess Margaret, The Queen Mother, and Queen Elizabeth II (who would later serve as godmother to Charles, their youngest Spencer). Bringing Diana even one step closer to royalty- her childhood home, Park House, was leased from the Royal Family, on their Sandringham property (where Diana’s mother was born). The house, built in 1863 for the Prince of Wales, was later used by King Edward VIII for overflow from the Royal House. The Royal Family spent Christmas’s there, and Diana would often play with her future brothers-in-laws, Andrew and

ces in 1988 for a younger woman. The unwanted media attention on their family, given Diana’s press-centric union, had contributed to their fraying marriage. Frances spent the rest of her life working with Catholic charities. She told The Independent that she and Diana had quarreled in 1997, after she revealed to Hello Magazine that Diana was happy to lose her title of “Royal Highness” following her divorce from Charles. They never spoke again. Frances died in 2004 at the age of 68. As a young girl Diana had been tutored at home by her governess, Gertrude Allen, but at nine years old—like her two older sisters—was ushered off to her first boarding school, Riddlesworth, followed by West Heath Public School for Girls in Kent. Academics were not Diana’s strong suit. She failed both her O Level exams, and dropped out at 16, never receiving the equivalent of a high school degree. She did, however, excel at sports: swimming, tennis, diving, and hockey. She was also awarded Honourable Prize for Helpfullness. And after briefly dabbling in piano, Diana continued to study her true love—dancing. While Diana was in school her father remarried Raine Mc-

Edward. Frances gave birth to five children, tragically losing her most eagerly awaited son, John (her third child), at birth. Diana was fourth, followed by her brother, Charles—the heir they had hoped for. As the eldest girls went off to boarding school at the age of nine, Diana grew closest with Charles. All was reportedly happy until 1969, when Frances left Earl Spencer for Peter Shand Kydd, an Australian wallpaper tycoon. An ugly custody battle ensued. Frances’ mother (the one who sanctified marriage) testified against her daughter, and Frances lost custody of her children. Charles (her youngest), later told The Sunday Times, “Our mother wasn’t cut out for maternity. Not her fault, she couldn’t do it. She was in love with someone else…infatuated, really. While she was packing, she told Diana she’d come back to see her. Diana used to wait on the doorstep for her, but she never came.” Tina Brown’s Diana Chronicles suggests that it was Frances who was shut out of their lives. Frances and Shand Kydd married in 1969, moved to a small Scottish Island off the coast of Oban, and opened a gift shop. They also owned a sheep farm in New South Wales and a flat in London. Shand Kydd left Fran-

Corquodale, a local politician and socialite (a rather chilling combo), daughter of the romantic novelist, Dame Barbara Cartland. McCorquodale was quickly identified as the wicked stepmother and nicknamed “Acid Raine” by Diana as she and her siblings sang, “Raine, Raine go Away…” Diana’s relationship with her stepmother languished during McCorquodale’s marriage to her father, culminating in the infamous “stairs” episode. Diana had grown increasingly irritated watching Raine pay little attention to her mother, Frances Roche, during a party at Park House (which also happened to be Frances’ ancestral home). Diana and Raine argued—culminating in Diana pushing her stepmother, sending Raine tumbling down some stairs. Remarkably, the two reconciled at the end of Raine’s life. Following the death of Earl Spencer, Raine had moved into a townhouse and remarried a French Count, Jean-Francois deChambrun. Nevertheless, Raine reportedly continued to reach out to Diana. Knowing Raine had made her father happy, Diana buried the hatchet. Ironically, at the time of her death in 1997, Diana and her stepmother had become close, while Diana and her own mother remained on non-speaking terms. Raine died at 87, in 2016, after hosting a farewell lunch with her closest friends. Backtracking to the 1970s, just after Raine and Spencer’s mar-

riage, Lady Sarah Spencer (Diana’s oldest sister) had begun to date Prince Charles—though not very successfully. Lady Sarah, in rather clumsy candor, apparently adopted the phrase, “I wouldn’t marry Charles if he was a dustman or the King of England”. And so she didn’t. Charles had gotten wind of the comment and nonchalantly brushed it off, along with Sarah Spencer. At the time, Charles happened upon Diana, although then, as he told The Telegraph, “When I met Diana, I was thinking what a very jolly and amusing and attractive 16-year-old she was. I mean, great fun and bouncy and full of life and everything.” In 1978, Diana took her first flight and first trip outside of England to attend Institut Alpin Videmanette, a Swiss finishing school in Rougemont. The Institut, which closed in 1991, offered sewing, skiing, and French (Tamara Mellon, a graduate, went on to make shoes). While at the Institut, Diana was said to keep a picture of Charles over her bed, telling friends, “I’d love to be a dancer, or the Princess of Wales. He’s the one man that can’t divorce me!” Who would’ve thought her former aspiration would be the easier of the two? Diana tried to train as a dance instructor, studied for one month, but was told that at 5’10”, she was already too tall.

It’s unlikely that her family would’ve condoned dance as a career, anyway. They were, however, fine with Diana coming back to London to clean houses, serve at cocktail parties, and work as a nanny and kindergarten assistant. As Tina Brown rightfully explained in The Real Diana, ‘Slumming it was part of the inverted cachet of the Sloane Ranger world, since it also announced that you didn’t rely on your job for either money or status. She was a trust fund Cinderella, drifting through temporary work-low stress, undemanding jobs that drew on her agreeable demeanor.” Diana was 19 years old and working as a $5-an-hour, parttime nanny for Mary Robertson, an American businesswoman in London. While on a weekend visit to Philip de Pass’s country house in Sussex, she re-met Charles. Lady Sarah Spencer clearly liked Charles better for her little sis and was only too happy to lay claim to that idea, telling The Guardian, “I introduced them. I’m Cupid.” And so ensued the 13 dates preceding Charles and Diana’s quick engagement. The press got wind of their budding relationship early on. A photographer from The Evening Standard posted himself outside of the kindergarten where Diana was employed part time. When she emerged, he asked for a photo and she complied, posing with her students. Mid-shoot, the sun came out, backlighting her translucent skirt. The finished photo showed Diana’s soon to be famous, long legs. Supposedly, upon seeing the news spread, Charles commented, “I knew your legs were good, but I didn’t realize they were that spectacular.” He couldn’t have known that this was the first of millions of pictures to come, many unwanted, often dwarfing his own press coverage. Was the image of that shy, smiling, seemingly modest girl, merely a front for a persona far more clever and indefatigable than anyone might have imagined? Would she agree—in fact, work to become—the world’s media darling because it loved her in a way that he never did? She remains an enigma- loved for her kindnesses, questioned for her choices. In her short life, she used the skills she had been taught: dancing, socializing, sporting… But most importantly, loving and caring for children. And in the end, that was her greatest achievement. u

But more than just simply a collection of leather jackets and skinny jeans, Minkoff infuses her own brand of bohemian edge to her clothes, offering her collection a timeless and andrygonous sense of style. The casual elegance Minkoff strives for is meant to blend the themes of each of America’s coasts in the effortless aesthetic the brand is known for. Looks come to life through seasonal plaids, leopard, florals, and strong leather statement pieces. The collection includes shirt jackets, voluminous sleeves, ruffle details, and Rebecca’s signature leather moto jacket. “I always find myself going back to music as a jumping off point for my inspiration season after season. The Fall 2020 collection is ultimately seeking to capture the essence of the Rebecca Minkoff girl, who is multifaceted in all aspects of her life,” said Minkoff. Given the difficulty of the times, Minkoff’s presentation is undoubtedly a love letter to New York, as she pays tribute to the timeless styles of the Big Apple’s coolest denizens. Classic patterns like houndstooth and breton stripes are styled with the carefree cool of leather jackets and jet black side zip and combat boots. In celebration of rock and roll culture, Minkoff also displays leopard print shirts and loosely fitting flannels. It’s no surprise that Minkoff’s models pose with guitars and amps, ready to perform with the same joie de vivre that their outfits demand. WINTER 2021/

> Balmain Olivier Rousteng’s acclaimed tenure at Balmain continues in fine form with the Spring/Summer ’21 collection. His looks continue to evoke Parisian elegance, but in this newest line one finds a more concerted effort to shine a spotlight on youth. While classic Balmain cuts in black and grey are still strongly featured, you’ll also find monochrome looks in neon colors. These colors paint a vivid portrait of youthful Parisian nightlife. Playful colors stand in contrast to the classic and sharp tailoring that has been a signature of the maison for decades. In this juxtaposition lies a cross-generational approach, seeking to channel the ’70s of Paris’ Saint Germain and the ’90s of Brooklyn, New York. In the midst of the pandemic, Balmain channels a nostalgia for the past in more than just the use of color. Looks incorporated in this season’s collection are meant to reflect our evolving relationship with clothes as so many of us find ourselves in quarantine. Signature tailored double breasted jackets are paired with biker shorts and denim. The contrast in formality on Rousteng’s runway reveals the way our sense of style has changed, now that “formal up top (party on the bottom)” has become par for the course when dressing for Zoom meetings. This strengthened desire for flexibility in our clothing is further reflected in Balmain’s knitwear, which aims to offer comfortable but sharp looks that can be worn while lounging around during the day, while still sufficing for the demands of eveningwear.

> Salvatore Ferragamo This season, Ferragamo takes its primary inspiration from the suspenseful thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock. Perhaps there’s no better time than now to take inspiration from the media we watch in the comfort of our own homes, especially when the end product is a cohesive show with striking color combinations. Take, for example, the 7th look—which draws the eyes to an elegant gradient effect, allowing the sharp tailoring to pop in truly fascinating ways. This season, Paul Andrew has showcased hand applied embroidered feathers, and a handspun ‘floating’ string skirt. Technical innovations include a flexible, eye-defying ‘tridimensional’ seersucker, a dress in recycled jersey, and a new sustainable-grade wool/ mohair crafted into outerwear. Much like Balmain, Ferragamo channels vintage roots with square toed shoes, twill overalls for men, and chintz, nappa-collared jumpsuits for women, in addition to a Technicolor Yellow honeycomb knit dress and sweater. Whether in nappa, lambskin, or voile, tailoring for women is impactfully proportioned and built for movement—a halter corset in Gull Grey sustainable wool/mohair twists dramatically at the hip. To complement the Technicolor impact of tone, fabrications are designed for lightness, flexibility and strength. While classic tailoring remains, the collection is full of vibrant colors and casual wear, with comfortably loose sweaters and relaxed fit jumpsuits. Andrew accompanied his show with a short film by Luca Guadagnino, shot this summer in Technicolor. Like the collection itself, the film is a Hitchcock-tinged evolution of suspense and anticipation set in Milan.u

Coco Chanel may have been no stranger to controversy, but Assouline’s new trilogy of books on the iconic maison seeks to celebrate the timeless spirit, signatures, and heritage of the House, which has made an indelible mark on the history of couture. The three mémoire volumes each discusses a different aspect of the historic maisons brand; ‘Chanel Fashion,’ ‘Chanel Jewelry And Watches,’ and ‘Chanel Fragrance And Beauty.’ In fashion, the house became a trailblazer by rejecting the restrictive styles of the time, instead introducing a new silhouette that sought to blend sophistication with a more natural nonchalance.

This international imagery is in line with Chanel’s own life. From a young age, Chanel traveled often. From her origins in Aubazine, to the Scottish Highlands, and back to the banks of Paris.

led to her father’s departure for America, and Chanel found herself struggling in an orphanage at Aubazine, in central France. It is perhaps these humble and difficult beginnings that sparked in Chanel a desire to do clothing a bit differently from how the more privileged among her had been doing it. Ultimately, Chanel began as an attempt to create a luxurious image of clothes that had never previously been viewed that way. Drawing from her past, Chanel took inspiration from people and clothing that designers whose origins were more bourgeois didn’t see. It gave the maison a unique aesthetic, which differentiated it from the rest and established a new style that persists to this day. ◆

Our interest in the fashions of royalty may be nothing new, but the unique story of Kate Middleton suggests an elevated style that still feels regal, but with an added sense of modernity. The “working Duchess” eschews the idea that she must always wear the most immaculate garments. Instead, she mixes high street with Saville Row. For every bespoke coat of unparalleled elegance in her wardrobe one finds an off-the-rack piece from popular brands like Reiss and even fast fashion, like Zara. Going all the way back to 2010, The Duchess-to-be proved her desire to support high street when she chose the label’s £159 Nanette dress, along with a Whistles blouse, to wear in her engagement portraits. “Kate has been a Reiss customer for many years now and for

her to choose to wear one of our dresses for such a wonderful occasion, announcing her engagement, we were over the moon,” the brand’s founder, David Reiss, recalls. Far from being a mere model whom others dress, Kate has become fluent in the language of clothing, working out a way to look the part without allowing her position to consume her. The Duchess has deliberately used clothing for diplomatic gestures, to send messages of solidarity and to show respect. She embraces the trends she prefers while refusing the ones she doesn’t. Kate’s clothing is consistently polished. She has made structured coats and tailored dresses look as effortless as a royal possibly could. But more than just polish, Kate uses her clothing to reveal her heart’s sympathies. She blends the sophistication of royal fashion with the modern dress of Britain’s working class—for example, her outfit for unveiling her charitable program for nurses, called “Nurses Now,” evokes this exact phenomenon. Designed for Kate by Jenny Packham, she wore an Empire-line royal blue silk dress with a matching tailored coat fashioned with white piped edging and buttons. The outfit mirrored the traditional colors associated with nurse’s uniforms—an idea that was underscored when Kate was pictured with Professor Lesley Regan, then president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, whose robes had very similar blue and white details. Side by side, Kate’s outfit displayed a colorful solidarity with the people of Britain that has done wonders to bring her even closer into the hearts of adoring fans all around the world. u WINTER 2021/

The Story on the New Fivestory By ElizaBEth Kurpis

Walking into the new Madison Ave. location of Fivestory—the highly curated, luxury boutique on the Upper East Side— one cannot help but feel that it’s more than your typical shopping experience. When entering through the double doors of the old-world townhouse with its trademarked black and white floors, the space seems less like a stuffy uptown retail shop and more like the not so humble abode of a very chic girlfriend. That is, one with an exquisite wardrobe, the loveliest home accessories, and fabulous art and jewelry scattered about. Perhaps that’s because of the richly painted fireplace remaining from the building’s pre-war days to your left, or the grand stairway beckoning toward ready-to-wear heaven further back. It may also have something to do with the building’s storied past.

there would be something for everyone.

Immediately upon entry, you will find Proenza Schouler and Giambattista Valli, alongside emerging designers like TWP and Voranida (the latter two are exclusive collections you won’t find anywhere else). You will also discover COVID-friendly casual shoes on a small table near the fireplace, with captivating ready-towear pieces sprinkled together on racks organized by color scheme, above which enticing shelves contain coordinating handbags, hats, and various accessories. Sometimes a gentle nudge toward a particular styling suggestion is all a customer might need to complete that perfectly effortless look.

Fivestory’s new home at 1020 Madison was originally owned by Cora Randolph Trimble, an American socialite during the Gilded Era, and her husband, Richard Trimble, an executive at the United States Steel Corporation. Since then, it has been home to an antique shop, numerous galleries, the house of Givenchy, famed interior decorator Clive Christian, Lilly Pulitzer, and most recently, Fivestory. When Karen Murray purchased Fivestory from its previous owners in early March of 2020, she knew the Trimble mansion was the perfect space to cultivate her vision for the future of the company. With its unique and thoughtful layout, Ms. Murray has been able to bring fashion, art, and homeware together in one space—all carefully curated to cater to the customer’s quest for exploration and discovery. Prior to owning Fivestory, Ms. Murray had been President or CEO of several fashion brands, including Nautica and Liz Claiborne. In her last position as CEO of a brand management company, she recognized that there was a void in the market for quality experiential fashion-retail opportunities, so she set out to fill it. And fill it, she did. When relocating the old Fivestory from a side street in the East 60’s to a more visible locale on Madison Avenue in the 70’s, Murray made sure that

Coleman. Coleman has expertly worked with brands like Louis Vuitton and Fendi to create one-of-a-kind objets d’art, such as lighters and pill bottles, using monogrammed leathers from the famed fashion houses. Another more progressive retail strategy of Ms. Murray’s is her discerning use of upstairs floor space. In this case, a pink Chinois Palais Schumacherwallpapered room houses “pre-loved” and vintage items. Across the hall sits a salon, as cozy as one’s own living room, showcasing fine jewelry, estate jewelry, and contemporary art installations on rotation. It is in this salon where small, private events have since transpired and will continue to take place for top clients. Although Ms. Murray took control of Fivestory right before the COVID-lockdown, while people weren’t out shopping as they once were, she recognized the need to focus on best-in-class customer service. Gone are the days, at least temporarily, when customers quickly drop in to pick up the latest dress for a gala or event. Now demand is mostly related to fulfilling requests for

consignments sent to clients’ homes, coupled with cautious— and always safe—personalized shopping experiences. One recent event was in collaboration with jewelry designer Kelly Gerber, aptly called “Build Your Own Story at Fivestory,” where customers brought in mementos or charms that meant something to them. Gerber personally worked with each client to help create a customized necklace incorporating their chosen memento. After an unusually brutal year in retail, many companies have learned that nothing is certain. In order to survive and thrive, flexibility and creativity are key components to achieving: merchandising success, effective customer relations, and an overall positive shopping experience. Fivestory has opportunely adapted to our post-COVID world by turning the page in its own story with a New Year, a new owner, and a new perspective—all housed in a new home with a uniquely storied past. As the saying goes, if those walls could talk, oh the stories they would tell (!), except in this case, they would only be told exclusively at Fivestory. u

While no country has been spared from the tremendous damage of the virus, Bermuda—a British territory off the coast of South Carolina just 90 minutes from New York—opened its borders to visitors in July after months of steadily containing the virus with strict protocols. In addition to maintaining its unique status as a tropical getaway with European sophistication and appeal, the island has built a reputation of competent government and safety.

Tucker’s bar, which serves classic cocktails like the nation’s iconic Rum Swizzle or Dark ’n Stormy, or the Island Brasserie, the resort’s renowned steakhouse, are perfect to stop in to drink and dine. Rosewood Bermuda also offers golf cart rentals so you can easily travel to the nearby perks like Bermuda Beach Club, where hotel guests can experience its oceanfront restaurant, or the clay tennis courts for a match. Hotel guests can also take advantage of Tucker’s Point Golf Club, featuring an 18-hole course and Italian restaurant, Sul Verde, located in the clubhouse. And while Rosewood Bermuda and its partners leave no reason to travel outside its bubble, the hotel is also near world-class golf courses like Midocean Club and Port Royal, and a 20-minute drive to downtown Hamilton, where visitors can explore Bermuda’s bustling restaurants, shops, the iconic pink sand beaches, and pastel colored homes.

Kidman’s character in “The Undoing” is elegance personified, with an assortment of rustic-cool daytime attire, and evening chic taken to the max. Hats off to costume designer Signe Sejilund—a woman scorned never looked so damn good. Kidman’s co-star, Hugh Grant, in one of his best acting performances I can remember, also expertly blends polish and obsession into the dynamic role of Dr. Jonathan Fraser. On the more playful side, “Emily in Paris” lets us imagine what it’s like to be a stranger in the City of Lights. Emily (played by Lily Collins) has a style that is bright and bold with a touch of cliché— but then again, so was Blair Waldorf’s. Emily is peculiar and naïve, even though her clothes say the opposite. But there are Emilys out there—just like there are Carries, Mirandas, Charlottes, and Samanthas—and many will take inspiration from her over-the-top looks (I like “Emily in Paris”, but woln’t deny the show doesn’t hold a candle to “Sex and the City”” or “Gossip Girl”). The more subtle style, however, of Camille (Camille Razat) and Sylvie (a very good Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), is where you should look for ideas. Both Razat and Leroy-Beaulie steal the show, at least when it comes to style. And who can forget the look of disgust Samuel Arnold (who plays Emily’s co-worker, Julien) shoots Emily when he lay’s eyes on the ensemble she shows up in for work. This show is a blast. If you haven’t seen any of these series yet, you can thank me later. If you have, watch them again. Maybe you’ll even find the motivation to start shopping and get dressed up again. ◆

XOXO No one knows how to shop like Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester)—and apparently the two fashionistas might be back in action in 2021, with a reboot of the hit series. That’s right “Gossip Girl” fans! The former CW show, based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, is getting relaunched by WarnerMedia’s streaming service, HBO Max. HBO has ordered 10 episodes of the new show, which will tackle current issues, including social media and online privacy.

WINTER HOROSCOPES

Q112

Capricorn Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 You’ve been wearing less and going out more—and it’s been noted by most. Some of the attention has been positive (from beaus) and some of the attention has been negative (from BFFs). But so what? Do you, whether that means doing less or doing more. > Dolly Parton: January 19, 1946

Cancer June 21 to July 22

Aquarius Jan. 20 to Feb. 18

Leo July 23 to Aug. 23

The market (well, the “meet” market) is strong. Why would you choose to hibernate in your apartment? March yourself to a bar with a buddy for cocktails and conversation. Say hello to going out on the town—and hello to a year of love! > Clark Gable: February 1, 1901

You’re experiencing a burst of energy—what an opportunity! Maybe you commit to exercising before work, or maybe you decide on a series of all-nighters to write your novel. Whatever your mission, you’ve accepted it. The stars are expecting great things from you... > Mick Jagger: July 26, 1943

Pisces Feb. 19 to Mar. 20 Ice is “nice” but you, dear Pisces, prefer water to be liquid. You crave a break from the snow, yearning for a weekend on an island. It’s OK to devote your savings to your sanity. And, perhaps, it’s OK for a “benefactor” to be the means to your end. > Elizabeth Taylor: February 27, 1932

Virgo Aug. 24 to Sept. 22 You could receive a knowing look—from a passerby, or even his dog—and it will remind you of a friend from when you were a child. Is that your BFF, reincarnated? No, it’s your 2021 BFF. Go on and make an introduction. Maybe bacon will do the trick... > Lauren Bacall: September 16, 1924

Aries Mar. 21 to Apr. 19 Christmas has come and gone, and your home is brimming with unwanted presents. Treat your relationships like these items, by abandoning the ones that you don’t need. You know that the last thing you need in your life is more clutter. > Doris Day: April 3, 1924

Libra Sept. 23 to Oct. 22 You were being “good” during the holidays, without indulging in treats like cakes and chocolates. No resolutions about exercise and nutrition for you, fair Libra! That said, discipline is overrated—and you’ve earned a dessert (or two). Remember to treat yourself. > Greer Garson: September 29, 1904

Taurus Apr. 20 to May 20 You may be going to hell in a bucket, baby, but at least you’re enjoying the ride... Remember to be considerate of others in the midst of your revelry—which means more than saying, “Thanks” when they hold your hair back after an evening of debauchery. > Jack Nicholson: April 22, 1937

Scorpio Oct. 23 to Nov. 21 Albert Camus wrote, “In the midst of winter, I finally learned there was, within me, an invincible summer.” You’re discovering a strength, a perseverence, at the heart of your being. You’re a force, dear Scorpio. Shine from within, whatever the weather. > Vivien Leigh: November 5, 1913

Gemini May 21 to June 20

Sagittarius Nov. 22 to Dec. 21

Awards season is approaching but there’s no reason to shoot for the “Best Actress” award. Be honest with you friends and with yourself because, with the harsh reality of the red carpet (virtual or not), the truth is revealed. The best performances are from the heart! > Marilyn Monroe: June 1, 1926

The concept of “Summer” seems like a fairy tale in that it happened once upon a time, in a land far, far away... Don’t succumb to SAD! Pop a Vitamin D and be proactive about your plans for June, July, and August. It’s a New Year and a new you- the possibilities are endless! > Frank Sinatra: December 12, 1915

/ WINTER 2021

The months of winter don’t just bring colder weather. If you’re not careful, they could also bring a cold heart. Be cautious that you aren’t closing yourself off to new opportunities and new relationships. Sometimes you have to give a little to gain a lot. Namaste. > Jerry Hall: July 2, 1956
