SPECIFICATIONS

The Ferrari 488 Pista is the successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined special series - the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale – which have received critical acclaim for their performance and undiluted handling.

0-200 KM/H: 7.60 seconds

The Ferrari 488 Pista marks a significant step forward from the previous special series in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing. The name is, in fact, a direct homage to Ferrari’s unparalleled heritage in motor sports.

TOP SPEED: 340 km/h

The car’s development evolved directly from

the company’s involvement in the FIA World Endurance Championship – in which it has won five Manufacturers’ titles in the GTE class in the six years since the series’ inception – and its 25 years’ experience in running the Ferrari Challenge one-make series. The Ferrari 488 Pista’s extensive weight saving solutions, along with engine, vehicle dynamics and aerodynamic developments, all derive from Ferrari’s racing cars: the 488 GTE and the 488 Challenge. The result is a car with an uncompromising mission: to offer impeccable track-like performance on and off the road, even when in the hands of non-professional drivers.

SUMMER 2018


HOME DÉCOR

Pizzale Design Inc. was established in 1994 by Principal Designer, Gabriele Pizzale. Her mission is to live in a world where the spaces she designs reflect the people who enjoy them, down to every last detail. The team believes that the experience is just as important as the final product and demonstrates this through their detailed design process. The homeowners were looking to modernize their outdated home, located in the west end of Toronto. This growing family, with 2 children and another on the way, needed a home that

was practical, but still felt warm and inviting. They decided to fully gut the inside, extend the back of the house and add an additional floor. Prior to the renovation, the layout was heavily compartmentalized, so the team decided to open that space up, giving the entire family the opportunity to spend more time together without feeling crowded. Many seats were placed throughout the home to give the clients the ability to entertain comfortably, key for any growing family. It was important for the design team to cap-

ture the youthful essence of this family, so they used bright colours throughout the area. Navy blue paired with citron yellow created a zestful atmosphere for a home that is so full of life. Pizzale Design focuses on incorporating livable luxury products, providing clients with beautiful finishes, that will also stand the test of time. Having enough storage was a high priority on the client’s wish list. The team incorporated this through the pantry and built-in drawers at the base of the window seats. →


HOME DÉCOR

Initially, the home only had one small closet in the front hall, not sufficient enough for this large family. Coat hooks were added to the right of the front door and a mudroom was installed down the hall, hidden behind gorgeous sliding barn doors. The warmth of the rustic wood was used throughout the space, which lends a casual feel, while also stylistically making a statement. →

Iris van Herpen’s bold creations have been at the forefront of experimentation and collaboration. She has earned international acclaim for her extraordinary shapes that use innovative materials, from metal umbrella ribs to magnets, and by working with leading architects, engineers and scientists, placing her at the edge of new technologies. Past collaborations include her work with one of Canada’s most forward-thinking architects, Philip Beesley. Sharing a mutual fascination

for materials and structures, van Herpen and Beesley have influenced and contributed to one another’s work to push the boundaries of design and how we think about it. Iris van Herpen’s Aeriform collection, presented during Paris Couture week, marked her tenth anniversary. To further contribute to its growing collection of Fashions & Textiles, the ROM commissioned an iconic, soon-to-be-realized piece from this latest collection.

Refinery Smoke Dress.

COLLABORATION AT WORK

The Dome dress was inspired by air and designed with innovative materials to produce an intricate silhouette that floats around the body like a wondrous silver cloud. Made in collaboration with Philip Beesley, this incredibly light dress was created using delicate and voluminous lasercut metal lace that was then hand-molded into three-dimensional domes. With nature as van Herpen’s other muse, the rose-like domes mimic bubbles of air reflecting light and billowing around the body, producing the airy, weightless movement of the Dome dress.

Monte & Coe was born out of a burning frustration with the lack of quality and longevity in bags and accessories. They wanted something permanent not temporary. They wanted something affordable, not cheap. They wanted quality, simplicity and utility. And most of all, they wanted it to be Canadian. Monte & Coe is a Canadian lifestyle brand that creates bags and accessories using premium wool and leather, sourced from Italy. Their mission is to elevate traditional products with a fashion-forward perspective, all while being as eco-conscious and socially responsible as possible. All products are handmade in Canada by expert craftsman, who work in fair-wage, labor-friendly environments. Their designs contrast the finest Italian leathers with a softer feel of Signature Italian Wool, which is 100% renewable and sustainable. It is topped off with a pop of personality, using vibrant interiors, stripes and the furnishings of Italian brass hardware.

With the majority of products being made overseas and a large amount of costs related to shipping, they wanted to build a brand that resembled the same designer quality of Italian and French fashion houses, but with their own Canadian spin. It wasn’t just about being locally manufactured but being designed with Canadian inspiration. Their wish was to take the value lost in importing from overseas, and redistribute that value to every Monte & Coe customer. They wanted to support local family run businesses, that had the ability to produce products with the same quality and skill that nations like Italy, France and now Portugal were known for.

TUNIRRUSIANGIT: KENOJUAK ASHEVAK & TIM PITSIULAK AGO.CA

This summer, the AGO celebrates the power of Inuit art by bringing together two extraordinary artists – Kenojuak Ashevak and her nephew Timootee (Tim) Pitsiulak – in our major exhibition of the season. Ashevak and Pitsiulak represent two generations of Inuit artists who have challenged viewers to respond to their art and the Inuit world view in new ways. The exhibition will be the first time Inuit art is showcased in the AGO’s largest exhibition space, the Sam & Ayala Zacks Pavilion, and will be Pitsiulak’s first major gallery retrospective. The exhibition will feature key art works and sketches by each artist, enabling visitors to appreciate the strength of drawing as an expression of Inuit cultural heritage that engages everyday life at its deepest level. Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario in partnership with Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage, with the support of Dorset Fine Arts, a division of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative. ■

In 2012, Matt Montemurro, Andrew Coelho, Ron Scarafile, and Nicholas Wiktorczyk collaborated to create Monte & Coe. It started with a weekender bag suitable for a vacation, the cottage and even the gym. Their product line continues to expand, to help their customers get to and from where they need to go, in style. Monte & Coe’s partnership reflects their individuality, solidified around a shared appreciation of fashion, personal style and the country they are from. Join them and embrace a new perspective on traditional apparel. #carryuswithyou ■

SPORTS

The exact history of the yacht race is difficult to pinpoint, but the sport we know today as yacht racing may owe its start to the Netherlands of the 17th century. These early sailboat races were often informal affairs, and even today there are a number of informal races throughout the world where amateur sailors can show off their vessels and enjoy some friendly competition. The sport of yachting would eventually make its way to England, and the sport continues to enjoy great popularity among the citizens of Britain. As the sport of yachting moved to England custom built racing vessels were built, and a new pastime was born. At the same time the Americans were busy working on their own custom built sailing vessels, and the spirit of international competition eventually led to an international yacht race between the New York based American Yacht Racing Club and its English rival. Held in 1851, this competition helped to create what is now regarded as the high water mark of yacht racing – the America’s Cup. Since the earliest days of the sport, yacht racing has undergone many changes and many revolutions. The desire for faster boats has led to a number of different classifications of vessel, including skiffs, dinghies and of course those huge luxury racing yachts. →

SUMMER 2018


SPORTS

While the sport of yacht racing is most often associated with those large ocean going vessels, there are in fact competitions that take place on many different bodies of water. Fresh water and salt water lakes, and even large rivers have played host to some of the greatest moments in the sport. Of course the style of boat is a big factor in the type of races it can enter, and there are several different types of racing yachts recognized by the various governing bodies of the sport. The large racing yachts with which the public is most familiar can be quite massive, and these large vessels typically come complete with all the facilities needed for an extended ocean voyage.

LUXURYLISTED.CA

SUMMER 2018


SPORTS

The smaller styles of yachts, such as skiffs and dinghies, are typically used for shorter races, including harbor races, lake races and even river races. Dingy races have been popular for many decades, and these smaller races are a great way for newcomers to learn about the sport and find out what yacht racing has to offer.

LUXURYLISTED.CA

31

These smaller watercraft typically carry a small crew consisting of one and three sailing men and women. Nearly all of these sailing vessels are equipped with a single mast, but there are some important differences newcomers should be aware of. For instance, the sail design varies from craft to craft, with some vessels equipped with only a single triangular sail. Others sailing ships are designed as sloops, complete with a piece of equipment known as a spinnaker. The spinnaker is designed to allow the vessel to sail easily with the wind. →

SUMMER 2018


SPORTS

In order to keep the competition fair most yacht races are held between vessels of similar design. This type of competition, known as a one design race, pits identically outfitted yachts against one another, with the best sailors coming out on top. All competitors face the same weather conditions and sail the same type of vessel, providing an excellent showcase for their inherent yachting skills.

Fortunately, even those sailors and yacht owners who choose not to sail halfway around the world can still enjoy their favourite sport with inshore racing. Inshore races typically take place outside the protected waters of a harbor but still within sight of land. Waters with many islands are popular spots for inshore races, and the races can be of various lengths as well. Some inshore races take place only during the day, while others are overnight affairs. These exciting races can even take place over several days, providing an excellent challenge yacht owners of all levels of experience.

Racing dinghies are always a popular choice for sailors of all ages and abilities, but they are a particularly good choice for those still learning the sport. That is because many dinghy designs provide for very stable and relatively slow speed crafts that are easy for the novice to control. Of course not all dinghies are so easy This desire for faster and better to handle, and new sailors should choose their vessels with care. equipped sailing vessels has helped Skiff and dinghy racing can be very popular sports for spectators as well as competitors, especially when the weather conditions provide additional challenges for all involved. In fact the sport of yachting is anything but boring for those not competing, particularly those races held on lakes, rivers and harbors.

to create the sport of yachting we know today. The men and women who devote their lives to this exciting pastime take great pride in their creations, and they enjoy the spirit of competition and camaraderie with their fellow sailing enthusiasts.

Even though dingy and skiff races are exciting to watch, it is the larger vessels most people think of when they think of yacht racing. These larger crafts can also be raced in harbours and other small spaces, but they are most likely to be found out on the open sea in thrilling point to point races. Many of these yacht races cover enormous distances, forcing the competitors to cope with all manner of weather and wind conditions. It can be a struggle for even the most experienced and skilled yachtsmen to even finish one of these long distance races, and long distance yacht racing provides many unique challenges not found in other sports. In fact there are a number of yacht races that take long distance to the extreme – with the various racing vessels speeding their way around the entire globe.

LUXURYLISTED.CA

The safety equipment requirements and challenges of inshore races varies quite a bit, and those who are interested in breaking into the sport should contact the sponsoring yacht club for specific detailed information. Many new yacht owners enjoy watching their local inshore races and learning about the sport before entering their own craft in the competition. The requirements and challenges of inshore races are generally lower than those for open ocean races but greater than those faced by harbor races and dingy races, but it is important for any would be competitor to get complete information before trying to join in on the fun.

The sport of yacht racing is certainly an exciting one, and it is a sport that is fun for participants and spectators alike. From the worldwide excitement of the America’s Cup to the lower key enthusiasm garnered by smaller local competitions, yacht racing has come a long way since the first men and women gazed out at the splendor of the sea. â–

VELAR BY BOB M c HUGH // L ANDROVER.COM

Tech-savvy, active lifestyle driver who enjoys the outdoors and getting off the beaten path… with style.

A little longer and wider than F-Pace, the Velar also offers some extra cargo space, better towing capability and, as you might expect, far better off-road capability. A variable-height air suspension system plus Terrain Response, a fully automated, multi-mode version of Land Rover’s renowned four-wheel-drive system, complete the transformation. →

Flush door handles that pop out of the doors, as you approach the Velar, are an attention getting feature and an early indicator of the techno-feast awaiting you inside. Not one but two massive interactive high-resolution touch screens dominate its dash/console display. For the most part, controls were intuitive and relatively easy to figure out, with a few multi-step exceptions. Frankly, I still prefer those simple and straightforward old-school switches and dial knobs, which you will find in a Jaguar F-Pace.

An interesting feature that I haven’t noticed in any other navigation system was an ability to warn the driver when approaching traffic lights equipped with a red light camera. A heads-up display and a fully digital instrument panel, which could also display the navigation screen, were additional clever features. The driver sits taller in a Velar than in F-Pace and the super comfortable front seats in my test Velar came with a massage feature, which could be preset to operate automatically five minutes after start-up. I prefer both the steering wheel and the steering wheel heater used in the F-Pace.

Heat is evenly spread around where hands are normally positioned on the F-Pace steering wheel. Conversely, just one side of the entire Velar steering wheel was heated. Jaguar F-Pace

An adaptive suspension and a huge selection of driving modes (including track!) allow Velar to offer a composed and confident driving experience on any road, or even off the beaten path. The F-Pace, on the other hand, is lighter and more agile, plus its steering was more precise, which gives the driver a more connected feel on paved roads. In case you’re not aware, both Land Rover (Range Rover) and Jaguar are now owned by the same parent company, Tata Motors based in India. This, of course, explains and justifies commonality of components in both Range Rover Velar and Jaguar F-Pace, which sells in the $50,000 to $70,000 price range. Both vehicles are built in the United Kingdom. RANGE ROVER VELAR SAYS

When this new project was presented to Natalie, her clients had a simple goal; to update their newly purchased 5000 square foot Toronto home. Classic 1980’s finishes, including a pink toilet and matching tub, clearly needed to go. Her clients, both working professionals with young kids, had no time to waste. Challenged with a short 10-week time frame, Natalie’s team worked tirelessly to get everything in order before starting the renovation. →

KITCHEN

One of their primary focuses was the kitchen. Natalie had a vision in order to bring to life what this family was looking for.

The team removed a wall to create an open concept space, which transformed the main floor of their home. Adding a pantry for additional storage was also a key feature for a large family. The oversized island and breakfast area were on the must-have list. They kept with a classic modern palette of black & white. The arabesque shaped backsplash added a hint of allure to the space.

MASTER ENSUITE

The design team’s goal was to have some fun while designing the Master Bathroom. Given that the ensuite was very large (14’ x 18’), they had to ensure they designed the space accordingly. The freestanding basin tub was anchored on an angle under the skylight, to offer more visual impact. The vanity became a multifunctional space by including a pull-out laundry basket and adding lots of storage. They then took the plunge and went for this impactful artistic floor tile, which speaks for itself. →

The Moroccan lanterns that were hung in a trilogy over their bed were one the most recognized parts of this design.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

ANDREA STAJAN-FERKUL

A

ndrea Stajan-Ferkul is a Mississauga-based artist whose work conveys a sense of experimentation through her use of paint, fabric collage and abstract mark-making. While not exclusive to fashion, dresses have been a compositional focus throughout her oeuvre. Her series of dress paintings shift between realistic representation and interpretive impressions, with an emphasis on timeless elegance. In combining the powerful aesthetic of glamour, and with closer observation, deliberate imperfection, she manages to create a harmonious cohesion between these two elements. In contrast, her series of abstract works embrace autonomous brushstrokes, taking visual cues from fragments within her dress paintings, to put an emphasis on the details which can be often overlooked. These representations are evocative of Andrea’s love for spontaneous gestural application in the most minimal of ways. Andrea studied Interpretive Illustration and Design at Sheridan College and  began her career in fashion advertising before shifting her focus to fine art in 2001. Her work has been exhibited widely through galleries and art fairs, and hangs in private and public collections across Canada, US and Europe. In 2009, Andrea was invited to exhibit her work in Ottawa’s Rideau Hall, hosted by (then) Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean. Andrea’s prints are distributed internationally through Canadian Art Prints and her works are available directly through her website. ■

THE LAUNCH OF THE

MANOLO BLAHNIK EXHIBITION BY ERIN DAVIS // PHOTOGR APHY: NICK LEE // BESTOFTORONTO.NET

The who’s who of Toronto’s fashion scene and society pages put their best Manolo-clad foot forward and hit the Bata Shoe Museum on Tuesday, May 15 for a glamorous party to celebrate the arrival of the anticipated Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes exhibit. Between air kisses, clinking glasses, and outfit compliments at the jam-packed venue, the assortment of well-heeled guests heard from Mr. Blahnik himself, who was in town for the occasion. They learned that the reason for choosing Toronto as the only North American stop of the exhibition was highly influenced by the vision of Bata Shoe Museum founder – the late Sonja Bata – who passed away in February. Now until January 6, 2019, Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes brings hundreds of Blahnik’s coveted creations to Toronto for a fashionable affair like no other, after well-attended shows in Milan, Russia, Prague, and Madrid. It offers a visually stunning retrospective of the iconic shoe with an inside look into Blahnik’s journey, inspiration, creative process, and achievements over the past forty years.

Offering beautiful (and ever-so-Instagram-worthy) footwear at every turn, the exhibit features some 200 hand selected Manolo Blahnik shoes of all colours, designs, and shapes – each with its own unique backstory that will make you love them more. Guests gain insight and understanding of how architecture, art, botany, literature, cinema, and travel have influenced Blahnik’s work in transforming an everyday accessory into the celebrated creations of contemporary design that became Carrie Bradshaw’s obsession. Shoes as art is the underlying theme of the exhibition, as it showcases Blahnik’s inventiveness and artisanship in creating the fancy footwear that seamlessly fuses fashion with art.

LUXURYLISTED.CA

72

SUMMER 2018


Within the walls of the museum, you’ll find dozens of original drawings and sketches, deconstructed parts and fabrics used to make the shoes, exclusive footage of the artist at work, pieces from Blahnik’s first-ever collection, and an assortment of Marie Antoinette shoes created for Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film Marie Antoinette. To complement the exhibition, the Bata Shoe Museum presents Exclusively Manolo, a series of programming to celebrate the exhibition, including exclusive tours, workshops, and a film series. As a memento, guests can purchase an accompanying fully illustrated catalogue published by Skira/Rizzoli, written by the exhibition’s curator Dr. Cristina Carillo de Albornoz, based on extensive conversations with Blahnik.

Be warned in advance: This exhibit may cause a significant dent in your credit card when your own shoe collection suddenly seems inadequate.

TRANSFORMER TR ANSFORMERFILM.COM

Many people define Bodybuilders as artificial. They have the reputation of being freak-like. Transgender people also have a strong stigma held against them. Janae Marie Kroczaleski was forced to face both judgements at once. In Summer of 2015, former US Marine and world record weightlifter, Matt “Kroc” Kroczaleski was publicly outed as being transgender. The reaction was universal; her sponsors abandoned her, she was disowned by her parents and she was no longer allowed to compete. She changed her name to “Janae” and started to live the way she was most comfortable.

The film follows Janae as she attempts to find her place in society. Initially wanting to strip off the muscle and become a much smaller looking woman, she found herself unable to lose the body she so desperately worked towards. She now finds herself living one day as an alpha male and the next as a delicate girl. Will Janae be able to handle her muscle relapses? Will her passage from being a male bring her the peace she’s looking for? Will society accept a 250 lbs muscular woman? Is her path a personal redemption or a physical and psychological disaster?

The film was commissioned by the Documentary channel at CBC and premiered at the Austin Film Festival, in October 2017, winning the Jury & Audience Award for Top Feature Documentary.

PENSION DECISIONS SIX KEYS TO A GREAT RETIREMENT BY JEFF FINCH, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PL ANNER // 416 695 8600

You’ve undoubtedly thought a lot about the “shape” of your retirement – but whether your plans include traveling, volunteering, starting a new career, or a myriad of other retirement dreams, the most important thing is having sufficient finances to ensure all of them become reality. If you are a member of a pension plan, now is the time to make some important decisions that will have a strong impact on the amount and length of your pension.

3 // CHOOSING THE SURVIVOR BENEFIT.

Not all plans allow you to do this – check the details of your plan. In most jurisdictions, the “standard” survivor benefit is 60% of the pension that was being paid to you prior to death, however some plans will include other options such as 66 2/3%, 75% and 100% survivor benefits. 4 // DO YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF RECEIVING YOUR PENSION BENEFIT FOR A GUAR ANTEED MINIMUM NUMBER OF PAYMENTS?

1 // DECIDE WHEN YOUR PENSION PAYMENTS WILL BEGIN.

Some plans allow you to choose to receive monthly pension payments over a minimum term of 5, 10 or 15 years – meaning that even if you die prematurely, the benefit will continue to be paid for the period you selected.

If you have a defined benefit pension plan, your annual benefit may be reduced if you retire before reaching a certain age or completing a minimum service requirement. However, your plan may have a bridging benefit to offset an early retirement pension reduction that is paid from the date of early retirement up to age 65 when it will stop.

5 // DOES YOUR PL AN HAVE A CPP (CANADA PENSION PL AN) OR OAS (OLD AGE SECURITY) INTEGR ATION OPTION?

2 // DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT YOUR PENSION BENEFIT TR ANSFERS TO YOUR SPOUSE WHEN YOU DIE.

If so, you can choose to receive an advance on your pension in the form of larger monthly payments until age 65, when CPP and OAS benefits normally begin. This option will result in reduced monthly payments after the age of 65.

You can usually: • Elect to receive a life-only pension that ends when you die. It will deliver a higher monthly benefit to you than a joint and last survivorship pension but will not provide a continuing benefit for your spouse after you die. The plan member’s spouse will need to sign a waiver to take this option.

6 // DO YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO TR ANSFER THE COMMUTED VALUE OF YOUR PENSION TO A LOCKED-IN ACCOUNT?

Instead of receiving a monthly lifetime pension, you transfer the commuted value of your pension to an account you control. Among other financial decisions, these six key pension decisions will help ensure your retirement dreams will become reality. ■

• Select the joint and last survivorship option. While your monthly benefit will be lower, the “joint and last survivor” option is usually better unless your spouse has his or her own pension, Registered Retirement Savings Plan, non-registered assets and/or adequate insurance coverage.
