BOYDS the guide introducing: new er ign des ert al

isabel marant Isabel Marant is a veritable darling among the elite class of superchic, unfussy “it” girls. And the French designer ’s much-anticipated Étoile line has arrived at Boyds. The FW2015 collection is an inspired interpretation of off-duty ballerina looks and tomboy separates with serious sex appeal. Known for a strong-shouldered silhouette, textures galore and a certain je ne sais quoi , the designer has successfully cultivated a widely influential and successful take on Parisian chic for the contemporary woman. This collection is casual and senusal, with an avant garde allure that is sure to appeal to shoppers who are ‘in the know.’ S ays M a ra n t o f É to i l e : “ I a m c reating something real, t h at wo m e n wa n t to we a r i n t heir everyday lives, with a ce r t a i n c a re l e ss n e ss , w h i c h I think is very Parisian. Yo u d re ss u p, b u t d o n o t p ay too much attention a n d st i l l l o o k s exy.”

If you’ve haven’t noticed, big things are happening at BOYDS. Our newly revamped creative department is premiering a new program for fall 2015 that will showcase the artistic works of celebrated visionaries both inside and outside the store. Erica Prince is a multidisciplinary artist with a practice rooted in drawing, sculpture and performance. She is a member of the Philadelphia artist collective, Vox Populi, and has exhibited her work internationally. Prince also teaches at Tyler School of Art and The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. “I have worked in display design for many years, alongside my primary studio practice. When Boyds’ visual director, Michael DeLuca, approached me with the idea of painted interiors for the fall windows, we became very excited about the connection between interior design and fashion. Auntie Mame was a huge influence. Michael and I saw Interiors as an opportunity to create vignettes that tell stories through design decisions.” See more of Erica Prince’s work at

HELLO COCLICO! Clean lines and a neutral color palette are the cornerstones of each Coclico collection. The brand’s subtle architectural silhouettes are fashioned from wood, cork and leather in a small, family-run factory in Mallorca, Spain. Coclico eschews ornamentation and excess, invoking instead a classic, timeless expression of beauty. This brand speaks to the unique and extends beyond style and luxury to a way of living in the world. Consciously, artfully, elegantly.

Expect big things. This season BOYDS welcomes back long-time fashion favorite Alexander Wang. The designer ’s new collection of “all-black-everything” bags and shoes in strong, structured shapes is sure to delight our customers. Formerly creative director of the renowned design house Balenciaga, the 31-year-old fashion wunderkind is turning his attention back to his own brand. Wang has always followed a strict aesthetic: Less is more. Still, you won’t find him skimping on details. The fall 2015 collection is about texture, shadow and next-level luxe accents.

TREND: the flannel look

To say that flannel has made a comeback would be the men’s sartorial understatement of the decade. As early as 2008, fashion-forward fellows in-the-know could be found combing catalogs that sold apparel and fishing rods alike, searching for nostalgic plaids. Now you can’t take a step down Chestnut Street without seeing at least a dozen of those weekend-worthy shirts.

Now designers like PATRICK ASSARAF and VAN LAACK are offering high-end versions of your favorite off-duty looks. The good news is that they are work-week appropriate and look great with a suit. The bad news? We can’t promise that they’ll turn your office into a cabin in the woods or that your sweetheart won’t try to steal them from your closet.


Whether you’re of average stature or big and tall, you’re sure to find something special from PETER MILLAR. This fall, shop seasonal essentials, including quilted vests, lived-in chinos and sport shirts for all occasions.

ways you’ve been doing it all wrong

1. You wear a mock neck with relaxed or boot-cut denim. Try a slim, straight pant or pair of jeans in a dark wash. Cuff the ankle. Wear nice shoes.

2. You wear a casual button-down, a T-shirt or (gasp) nothing underneath. Wear it with a sport shirt or dress shirt. Your collar should have structure. Extra points if you wear a tie. 3. You consider it casual and only wear a mock neck as a last resort. Remember that dress shirt and tie we talked about? Add a nice sportcoat and forget your outerwear. You have enough layers; you look flawless.

“You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but Ajay Raju was freaking out.” You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but Ajay Raju was freaking out. Thunderous jock jams accompanying the gyrations of the Philadelphia 76ers dancers reverberated against the high walls and lofted ceiling of the Union League’s Lincoln Hall, which happened to be packed to the gills with a who’s who of Philadelphia society. At the front of the auditorium was Senator Bob Casey, having taken the stage following a rousing pep talk to the assembled throng from Sixers coach Brett Brown. It was Casey’s job to welcome an elite cadre of bright and bright-eyed teenagers, about to be drafted into the Germination Project, a new leadership incubator with lofty plans for the city and high expectations for its young Fellows. In a makeshift war room adjacent to all the action, an assistant with a headset had just whispered to Raju that the official Draft Day team jerseys — the very emblem of the occasion—were nowhere to be found. The evening thus far had been a master class in carefully organized quasi-chaos, but now it all seemed about to unravel.


“I was a little panicked,” admits Raju, two months later and quite at ease in his well-appointed Dilworth Paxson office on the 34th Floor of Centre Square East, the yellow eye of City Hall’s clock tower peering in through his window, “but I sure wasn’t about to show it. What’s Eddie Murphy’s line in Trading Places?” he wonders rhetorically, having memorized virtually every bit of dialogue in the classic Philadelphia rags to riches comedy. “‘Karate man bruises on the inside.’” [Full disclosure: I have worked with Raju for the past eight years and have heard him quote Trading Places many times. At length.] “That was me,” he continues. “We’d put this whole event together like a perfectly tailored suit, and one bad stitch was about to rip the whole thing apart at the crotch.” But let’s back up. Thirty years ago, Ajay Raju didn’t run a storied Philadelphia law firm, manage a venture fund or helm a philanthropic foundation. In 1984, he was a 14-year-old immigrant from Bhopal, India, newly settled with his parents and younger brother in the reaches of

Northeast Philly. Like a typical immigrant kid, he didn’t have connections or resources to leverage. But—and also like a typical immigrant kid—he possessed an innate sense of drive that was lost neither in transit nor translation. At George Washington High School, he made the track team as a sprinter and was surprised at the ready supply of adulation heaped on athletes, while the academic stars were simply declared nerds and relegated to their appropriate caste. In India, just the opposite had been true. Sports were generally regarded as a scholastic afterthought, and the nerds were exalted as the cool kids. “It struck me as backward,” says Raju. “Why was everyone so fixated on how well a kid could throw a ball down a field or how fast he could run around a big oval? It seemed to me the better investment was in those smart, ambitious kids who’d most likely be our bosses one day.” He pauses. “Not that I minded getting attention as an athlete.” Eventually, the realities of human physiology led Raju to conclude his

pursuit of a career in cleats. Graduating from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law in 1996, Raju set about building his business and his brand. As he became increasingly enmeshed in Philadelphia’s civic society, Raju grew ever more vexed by the institutional dysfunction he encountered and its sclerotic effect on progress. “I wondered how it was that this city, literally the crucible of modern western democracy, could have veered so dramatically off track,” says Raju. “As a newcomer, I’d embraced Philly’s historical mythology— the Constitution, Ben Franklin, the Liberty Bell, all of it. But now that I’d gotten a closer look into the problems that had been plaguing us for decades, it was hard not to despair at the thought that

Philadelphia’s greatness was an artifact of the past.” What bothered Raju about Philadelphia’s current condition was the same laundry list of ills cited in so many criticisms of modern American urban centers: a stubbornly abysmal poverty rate, a chronically underfunded and underperforming public school system, persistently high incidences of violent crime, homelessness, unemployment and public health issues. “I was less interested in figuring out where we’d gone wrong than in finding a new path forward,” Raju emphasizes. “But it was clear to me that the obstacles in Philadelphia’s way wouldn’t be overcome with a piece of legislation or a wheelbarrow full of money. What we really needed was long-term stewardship;

and for that, we’d need an ecosystem to cultivate these stewards, these leaders, to instill in them a commitment to serve the city. There’s never been a shortage of great minds to come out of Philly; the problem has always been convincing them to stay here.” For Raju, the moment for action was now. He points to a confluence of encouraging data, which, set against the dismal backdrop of the aforementioned indicators, suggest a hopeful moment ripe for the seizing. “Eight billion dollars in major property developments around Philly, an ascendant arts scene to rival anything in Europe, thriving institutions of higher learning; the list goes on,” says Raju, sounding like a salesman for the city, which, of course, he is. “If there fall / winter 2015

Boyds Magazine Fall 2015 Part One.indd 57

wasn’t an undercurrent of hope for what Philadelphia might become, we wouldn’t be seeing these big bets on business, population and culture here.” The sense that Philadelphia is at a tipping point had been preoccupying Raju for a while, but it was a conversation with his daughter Madison, then a freshman at the Baldwin School, that made him realize what he could try to do about it. “Madison and I were talking about the virtues of grit and the vices of privilege and what it means to be really dedicated to a purpose,” Raju recalls. “She could have dismissed my perspective as just another when-I-was-your-age lecture from an immigrant dad, but instead she pointed out to me that kids are capable of understanding these concepts, in some cases with more clarity, and certainly with less cynicism, than adults. Madison helped me conclude that if the purpose at hand is sustainable progress for our region, then we ought to be fostering that purpose in the kids who can achieve it over the course of their lives. These are the seeds that we build the ecosystem around.” And from that revelation, the Germination Project emerged. Established with a foundational grant from the Pamela and Ajay Raju Foundation, the Germination Project’s stated purpose is to be a “catalytic investment” in Philadelphia’s future. By

striving to identify, nurture, encourage and connect the brightest young people around —from their high school years through their careers—to commit themselves to the greater civic good, the Germination Project seeks nothing less than to establish a self-sustaining ecosystem to transform Philadelphia. By January of 2015, 10 high schools representing a cross-section of Philadelphia’s public, parochial, charter and suburban education systems had been chosen to participate in the Germination Project’s pilot program. Each school’s administrators were tasked with nominating candidates from among their 10th-grade classes to apply for admission as student Fellows. Dozens of capable students submitted application packages consisting of transcripts, personal statements and letters of recommendation for consideration by the Germination Project’s selection committee. Meanwhile, Raju tore through his Rolodex seeking collaborators for the new endeavor. “It was critical that any institutional partner of the Germination Project share our philosophical mindset,” he says. “We needed them to view this as the beginning of a decades-long investment where returns would be measured longitudinally.” Raju quickly managed to secure the buy-in of a wide

range of businesses, nonprofits and educational institutions; chief among these were the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Social Impact Initiative and the Philadelphia 76ers organization. Raju and his fellow Foundation trustees delegated to Wharton the design of the Germination Project’s Leadership Boot Camp, an intensive ongoing program of experiential leadership and social entrepreneurship training held at the University of Pennsylvania. Further collaborations between the Germination Project and Wharton include a business plan competition aimed at injecting entrepreneurial energy­—and $100,000 in seed money—into the region’s next generation of small-business leaders. With the Philadelphia 76ers, an organization Raju describes as “just as focused on securing a successful future as we are,” Germination Project Fellows will coordinate a variety of community outreach and development initiatives. The Sixers had also offered to supply the glitz for the Germination Project’s Draft Day Benefit Gala. Which brings us back to those jerseys. In mid-April of 2015, having pored over countless compelling applications and conducted multiple rounds of interviews with finalists, the Germination Project’s selection committee chose 15

students to matriculate into its inaugural class. The program’s launch was to be held in the lavish mode of a high school prom multiplied by an NBA draft ceremony. Needless to say, it was a first for the Union League. But before all that, the Fellows needed threads. Boyds stepped in. “As much as the Union League or City Hall itself, Boyds is a landmark and an institution in Philadelphia,” says Raju. “Boyds has been dressing the best in class for generations, but I also thought that it was meaningful here, with a group of kids from a variety of circumstances, to dispel notions of class distinction,” Raju adds. “Basketball superstars would be dressed to the nines for an event like this, so why shouldn’t our superstar future leaders get the same treatment?” Into the spotlight they stepped.

The night of the Draft Day Gala, a warm June breeze ushered the Fellows and their hundreds of new supporters and benefactors from Broad Street into the Union League. A stirring short video introduced the Germination Project to the assembled guests, as butlered hors d’oeuvres and strategically placed cheesesteak stations kept them all fed. A live band got the crowd dancing before official events had even begun. Coach Brown offered an exhortation to the Fellows as they lined up in the wings to be announced as “picks” in the Germination Project draft, at which point each would climb the stage to be received and to receive an official Philadelphia 76ers jersey customized with his or her name and the Germination Project logo. Mere moments before the first Fellow’s name

was called, another of Raju’s headsetclad aides slid into the war room with the newfound jerseys. In a lightning round of covert hot potato, the jerseys were delivered to the podium, and in turn to each Fellow, beaming before the cheers of the crowd. Off to the side, Raju breathed a barely perceptible sigh. Karate man was relieved. The Germination Project Fellows danced with their families and friends, new and old alike, late into the evening. Ahead of them lay their own futures, and the future they’d secure for Philadelphia. fall / winter 2015

emily blunt

This charming young Brit is unafraid to make bold choices on stage, on screen— and in the world of fashion. By Mimi Smith

Sweet meets saucy as British actress Emily Blunt shows off a ruffled baby-doll dress, ribbon-tied textured stockings—and a look that could melt a heart of steel.



Boyds Magazine Fall 2015 Part Two.indd 98

9/2/15 10:53 AM

At 32, British actress Emily Blunt has secured her spot in Hollywood’s hierarchy with a series of compelling performances—including a Golden Globe-winning supporting role in the 2007 BBC miniseries Gideon’s Daughter—and held her own on screen with the likes of Meryl Streep and Dame Judi Dench. And she’s no sartorial wallflower either. Blunt’s daring red-carpet fashion choices are consistently documented for the masses of fashionistas who envy her impeccable style. Will anyone soon forget the shimmering, crystal-studded Stella McCartney dress she wore to the recent Sicario premiere at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival? A subtle yet arresting actress with piercing eyes and crisp comedic chops, Blunt could nevertheless be the girl next door. She grew up in southwest London, the second of four children of an actress-turned-teacher and a barrister whose real-life courtroom dramas she credits for her ability to play enigmatic characters. If that seems a perfect pedigree for thespian success, remember that—as Blunt once reminded The Guardian in an interview—“nobody goes through life unscathed.” In childhood Blunt struggled with a severe stutter that left her frustrated and somewhat isolated. It took an insightful teacher’s suggestion that she portray a heavily accented character in a school play (an idea at which 12-year-old Blunt initially balked) to open her up

to fluency. Today her diction is perfect, but her memory remains keen—she serves on the board of the nonprofit American Institute for Stuttering. The actress attended Hurtwood House, a school known for its performing arts program, where she excelled at the cello. She also did enough acting to be discovered by an agent, who placed her in several period dramas. Her debut professional play, The Royal Family, put her opposite Dench and earned her the “Best Newcomer” award from the Evening Standard. Though she started on stage, Blunt’s breakout performance came in a film: the 2004 U.K. production My Summer of Love, in which she played Tamsin, a self-described “fantasist” who indulges in a lesbian affair. In 2006, the actress gained the world’s attention as the hilariously haughty assistant to Miranda Priestly (a character allegedly based on Vogue’s Anna Wintour) in The Devil Wears Prada. And if Blunt can play haughty, she can also be positively imperial, as she proved in the title role in 2009’s The Young Victoria. Blunt is as versatile in attire as she is in performance, and she doesn’t stick to “safe” choices. She’s been seen in everything from a fire-engine red Georges Chakra gown with a low-cut lace back to a beaded black Jenny Packham femme fatale gown with a sheer skirt to a blush pink chiffon dress. She is also a master at casual chic, and at moments of leisure can be found rocking skinny jeans, booties, oversized sweaters and aviator glasses. The star shares those moments with actor John Krasinski, best known as the comparatively sane young fellow on the stateside version of TV’s The Office, whom she married in 2010. Just last year, the couple welcomed their daughter Hazel into the world—but not before Blunt posed in a skin-tight nude dress for Vogue at eight months pregnant. She looked fabulous. Blunt’s most important role as a mother may slow her pace for a while, but it won’t stop us from seeing her in interesting parts. Following her work in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011), The Five-Year Engagement (2012), Edge of Tomorrow (2014—opposite Tom Cruise) and the musical Into the Woods (2014), this year’s star performance in the crime drama Sicario is as a Tucson cop. And she’s currently filming The Huntsman, due for a 2016 release. Streep? Dench? The future promises another one-syllable synonym for enduring greatness: Blunt!

the romance of


With beauty, beaches and the bossa nova, this South American metropolis stirs the passions. By Everett Potter

For some destinations, the arrival of the Summer Olympics would be the biggest news ever. But it’s just one more feather in the cap of next year’s host city, Rio de Janeiro, whose “Carnival,” the world’s largest, draws 2 million revelers into the streets each spring. You probably know Rio even if you’ve never visited. Movies delight in the art deco statue of Christ that presides over the harbor, rising more than 100 feet from its perch on a 2,300-foot mountain called Corcovado. And if you’ve seen images of the conical mountains, the undulating coastline and the colorful architectural heritage of the city’s 450 years, you realize Rio looks like something the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí might have conceived. But you simply must come in the flesh, not so much to learn as to luxuriate—in the sights, the sun, the tastes, the beat. You’ll keep returning. Along fabled strands like Copacabana and Ipanema,

high-rises face the surf of Guanabara Bay. The hippest of the 6 million Cariocas—Rio residents—can be seen going from apartment to beach in nothing more than a skimpy black bathing suit and flip-flops, cell phones to their ears, wraparound designer shades de rigueur, their tans at a level of perfection most of us can only dream of. But above their neighborhoods rise mountains that are a patchwork of jungle and shantytowns known as favelas. Rio is stylish and hedonistic, but it’s also a big city, with some spots as glamorous as Paris and others as edgy as Detroit, often within a few blocks. To experience the world’s most mannered beach rituals, choose cool Ipanema and hang out at the area marked Posto 9, the epicenter of beach hip. Style-conscious Cariocas set up their umbrellas alongside the thundering surf, but surprisingly few ever swim, as riptides can be fierce. continued

The idea of building a large statue atop Corcovado was first suggested in the mid1850s. It came to fruition in 1931, when Christ the Redeemer made its debut, arms outstretched as a symbol of peace.

Instead, they preen and socialize, in a display of exhibitionism and vanity of the highest order. Women wear tiny bathing suits known as fio dental—dental floss—while men favor an abbreviated Speedo-like style called a sunga. The hyper-fit play volleyball as well as the uber-athletic hybrid of soccer and volleyball called futevolei. If you’ve spent the day with “The Girl from Ipanema” playing in your head, grab a chopp, a Brazilian draft beer, at Garota de Ipanema on Rua Vinicius de Moraes, where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes penned the legendary song in 1962. It introduced the world to the sound called bossa nova or “new beat.” With a few well-chosen words of Portuguese, you can handle Rio’s taxi drivers and have them take you all over the “Cidade Maravilhosa”—marvelous city. The Chácara do Céu museum in Santa Teresa is the former home of industrialist Raymundo Ottoni de Castro Maya. He collected Brazilian, European and Asian art, but his modernist house is equally fascinating. Then head to Praça Tiradentes, a public square in the city’s center, ditch the cab and walk to Real Gabinete Portugues de Leitura, a 19th-century library whose main reading room is a veritable cathedral of books reaching to the sky. Walk a few blocks to a pedestrian-only street called Gonçalves-Dias and step into the magnificent eatery known as Confeitaria Colombo, a riot of Art Nouveau mirrors and stained glass from 1894. Grab a seat at one of the marble tables, order a hearts-of-palm salad, and follow it with a cafezinho, Brazilian coffee, and traditional Portuguese sweets. You’ll find the brightest star for lodging in the hilly Santa Teresa neighborhood. It’s the Hotel Santa Teresa, which was formerly a 19th-century fazenda, or ranch. This Relais & Châteaux property boasts high style and amazing views of the bay. Inside there are 44 suites decorated with folk fall / winter 2015

art from the Amazon and mid-century modern pieces by Brazilian designer Sergio Rodrigues. Simple four-poster beds and a Zen-like minimalism are hallmarks of the rooms. There is a slate swimming pool, perfect for a sweltering Rio day, and a neighborhood that has in the past decade evolved from edgy to hip. The fazenda’s former senzala (slave quarters), now houses the lively Bar dos Descasados. When it comes to dining, nearby is Aprazível, which has fine views, a welcoming garden and a menu that highlights Brazilian seafood, with dishes such as orange-infused tropical fish with coconut rice and roasted plantains. Zuka is more cutting-edge, offering fusion cuisine that takes Brazilian ingredients and blends them with European staples—rack of lamb with passion fruit, for example. Zazá keeps the emphasis on Asian accents, and diners lounge on throw pillows—try the grilled namorado (perch) served with caramelized plantains. Then it’s time to go out. Cariocas say it doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor in Lapa, because everyone comes to this neighborhood for the same things: music, dancing and a well-made caipirinha, the national cocktail of sliced limes, sugar, ice and cachaca, a sugar-cane liquor. Among the best clubs are Rio Scenarium, an eccentric boîte that’s jammed with antiques as well as partygoers and a live band playing samba or chorino. You can also dance and hear music at Carioca da Gema, which began the Lapa revival and is filled with bossa nova lovers every night. I also like Centro Cultural Carioca. A former dance hall, this two-story space has samba lessons downstairs while in the vast, windowed upstairs hall, an array of performers play various styles of Brazilian music. The blending of music and food is part of the extraordinary melding of cultures that defines Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s liveliest and most surprising cities.

icon Jazz trumpeter, bandleader and composer Miles Davis was an original who gave thought to every note of music—and to the distinctive sartorial notes he struck as well.

For the Picasso of jazz, nothing was incidental— not the notes he played on the trumpet or the absence of buttons on his sportcoat sleeves. By Maria Lissandrello

If anyone knew from cool, it was Miles Davis. The legendary jazz musician got his start in the mid-1940s, moving from his native St. Louis to Manhattan to study at Juilliard—and play the trumpet with Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and other cats on the bebop scene in Harlem. Even as a teenager, he had a sartorial style that was well thought out. Although his Brooks Brothers suits came from the friendly neighborhood pawnshop, Davis made them his own by slitting notches in the lapels in homage to the Duke of Windsor. Nothing about his appearance—or his music—was incidental. When he raised his trumpet to his lips, he controlled every detail. Designer and fashion illustrator Joe Eula recalled the instructions the jazz great gave him for an outfit he was to wear onstage: “When we talked about the jacket, we knew it could be no more than 54 inches from one arm to the other, straight out.” It was calculated, you see, to reveal no more than an inch of Davis’ bespoke shirts and cufflinks. And when he turned his back to his audience (something he was wont to do—a statement, some said), the natural drop shoulders were perfectly orchestrated, his jackets cut to accommodate his slouchy playing posture. By the mid-’50s, the Juilliard dropout had transitioned to the Ivy League, getting his suits custom-made at Harvard Square’s Andover Shop. There, owner and jazz fan Charlie Davidson came to know his preferences: English tweed and madras jackets with a natural shoulder and narrow lapel, chinos and flannel trousers, and broadcloth shirts with button-down

collars. On Davis’ feet, Bass Weejun loafers—a choice that made other men question their own footwear. Davis became so renowned for his fashion sense (wearing “what the well-dressed man will wear next year,” said Down Beat magazine in 1960) that press releases on his upcoming gigs reported not just the musical program but his outfits too— pink seersucker jackets, skin-tight trousers, Italian-cut suits, handmade doeskin loafers, a beige pongee suit. In the 1950s and ’60s, the trumpet player and band leader emerged as one of the most famous jazz artists in the world, not just for his music but for his image too. He was the subject of a Playboy interview and became the first jazzman to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. A pivotal point in his career came in 1959, when his band released what would become the bestselling—and most influential—jazz album of all time, Kind of Blue. Romantic, melancholic and beautifully melodic, it ushered in a new jazz style. Ever-evolving both in his music and his wardrobe, Davis rewrote the jazz rulebook in the late 1960s by incorporating electric instruments into his band, creating a looser, rockinfluenced improvisational style. At first, on albums like In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew, it was dubbed “jazz-rock” or “fusion.” But when the ’70s arrived he abandoned jazz completely—and his sartorial style became as funky and avantgarde as his music. Somehow he managed to get away with wearing purple bell-bottoms, kipper ties and hexagonal glasses. It was part of the trademark swagger and confidence of Miles Davis. And yeah, he was still cool.

9/4/15 1:22 PM

At the turn of the 17th Century, William Shakespeare penned these words: “The apparel oft proclaims the man.” I was 9 years old when my father first read Hamlet to us. While I did not fully appreciate the advice Polonius imparted to his nephew, Laertes, as he embarked on his voyage from Denmark to France, I knew it somehow related to fashion. And my father, the original “Dr. B,” was always a welldressed man. As I grew older, it became exceedingly clear. More than anything else, we humans are social beings and we connect with each other in many ways and at multiple levels. However, throughout this human experience, we have limited opportunity to engage in deep conversation, and thus, our unique identity risks going unnoticed. Modern society has cleverly offered a safe reprieve. Fashion, that rarified combination of fabric, style and personality—creating the aesthetic—allows us to communicate an authentic message and, unwittingly or with prescribed purpose, starts a silent dialogue with all those around us. This fashion-catalyzed method of expressing oneself is as old as dirt. And here is the rub: Whether or not you pay attention to what you wear, the world takes stock. We are constantly analyzing the environment around us, including what people look like. There needs to be no judgment, but often a conclusion is drawn—what Descartes would refer to as “the accumulation of sense data.” Just like a scent evokes a certain memory, how you dress, how you wear your hair, how you accessorize all scream, “This is who I am!”, “This is what I am!” Of course, depth of character can only be discerned through conversation, exchange of ideas and relationship building, but the reality of life provides limited opportunities for this. All the while, the silent whispers about your identity are heard loudly through your fashion sense and chosen materialized veneer. As a scientist and an executive at The Franklin Institute, I often find myself breaking the stereotype of what a scientist is expected to look like. That’s true whether I’m in a stylish three-piece suit accessorized with a colorful fountain pen or donning a polo shirt and some crisp new Chuck Taylors. Young adults, grandparents and kids alike, take note that scientists indeed come in all shades and manner. Time and time again, this deconstruction of their “scientist” image helps them resonate more with me and we connect on that human level, even if only for a passing moment. We often use the adage, “Never judge a book by its cover.” Yet we all pluck books off shelves, grab magazines from racks and select newspapers from stands based solely on the image or headline plastered on the cover. Like it or not, how you look sends a message. So, as I dance the divide of loving science and appreciating fashion, I choose to consciously curate that message. Our first U.S. ambassador, Benjamin Franklin, knew this as he navigated that same haute-coutured France as Shakespeare’s adventurous Laertes. Working in his temple on the Parkway, it is only fair I try to do the same. Thank you, William. Thank you, Dad. Thank you, Boyds. Indeed, “the clothes often proclaim the man."

As Senior Vice President for Science and Education at the renowned Franklin Institute, Dr. Frederic Bertley, “Dr. B,” is dedicated to igniting a passion for science lear ning, a commitment to innovative thinking and a desire to transform the global science education landscape. Bertley leads several diverse initiatives at The Franklin Institute that positively impact students, educators and the general public. He oversees a number of youth programs; a monthly all-inclusive Community Night; the long-standing Traveling Science Show and the lauded Color of Science™, which showcases the remarkable contributions of women and persons of color to moder n-day science. Dr. B directs the Institute’s talented cluster of scientists and a broader team that works tirelessly to make science accessible and engaging. From the prestigious Franklin Institute Awards, one of the oldest science awards program in the world, to the inspiring Philadelphia Science Festival—the programs under Bertley’s leadership are significant and proven successful. Bertley also leads the Institute’s international efforts, including the implementation of science education programs in Egypt, Paraguay and China, and he is Executive Editor of the Journal of The Franklin Institute . A Montreal native, Dr. Bertley studied physiology and mathematics at McGill University, where he also ear ned a Ph.D. in immunology. Prior to joining The Franklin Institute, he was part of a Harvard Medical School HIV Vaccine Research Group and a research affiliate at MIT, and he managed multinational teams in Haiti and the Sudan. Dr. Bertley is honored to have received the Dell Inc. Inspire 100 World Changers, Harvard Medical School Dean’s Service Award, Philadelphia Business Jour nal ’s 40 Under 40 and Minority Business Leadership Award, as well as a Mid-Atlantic Emmy™. He has been an invited speaker at top venues, including world-leading universities, the White House and the United Nations.

palate reboot

A sip of calvados between courses can take a meal from good to great. By Virginie Boone

The dinner is splendid, but its many fine flavors are starting to confuse your taste buds. That’s the moment for what the French call le trou Normand (literally, “the Norman hole”). It’s a traditional break in an elaborate meal to cleanse the palate, aid digestion and prepare for the next course. And it usually features calvados, the world’s pre-eminent apple brandy. Calvados has been made by the Normans in northern France for at least 400 years. At one time, it is said, some farmers paid their rent with barrels of the fermenting cider from which the brandy is made. But it was only in 1942 that calvados was given an officially protected name in France’s system of AOCs (appellations d’origine controlées), geographically protected zones linked to specific wines and other agricultural products. There are actually three specific AOCs known for calvados. But the heart of this brandy’s homeland is one called Pays d’Auge. That’s where, around 1960, Christian Drouin Sr. bought a farmhouse surrounded by apple trees. He hoped to supplement his income by selling Taking a break to sip an apple brandy like Château du Breuil Calvados from the heart of Normandy reawakens the taste buds, restores the appetite and prepares you for maximum enjoyment as the dinner proceeds.

the fruit, but prices at the time weren’t compelling enough. Yet Drouin’s friend Pierre Pivet, a native of the area, happened to have a mobile still and was in the habit of visiting farms to help farmers distill cider. He suggested Drouin give it a go. He did, stocking away much of what he made within his cellar until 1979, when his son Christian Drouin Jr. figured it might make sense to actually sell a bit of the stuff. It turned out to be exquisite. The family was soon offering the world single-vintage bottlings of calvados, igniting a wave of new interest in the spirit, especially among Michelinstarred chefs. Christian Drouin’s namesake firm continues to have the world’s largest selection of single-vintage calvados, with each vintage representing the year of distillation, usually the calendar year after harvest. And Drouin still farms its original roughly 50-acre orchard in the town of Gonneville-surHonfleur, as well as a second property known as Domaine Coeur de Lion in Coudray-Rabut, which tourists can visit. These properties provide roughly


half of the apples required yearly to make Christian Drouin brandy. The other half are sourced from nearby longtime growing partners, all of whom subscribe to diversity, growing apples in four categories: sweet, bittersweet, bitter and acidic. When they’re ready to harvest, apples are shaken gently out of trees, to be gathered from the ground by hand. Ripening varies among the types of apples, beginning in late summer and extending through the winter. Farmers store the earlier-ripening varieties so that the distillers have all four kinds at their disposal once they’re ready to press the apples into cider. And pears are sometimes included in the mix as well. Often the cider is pressed at the farm in order to take advantage of the wild yeasts that are present for fermentation, then double pot-distilled and aged a minimum of two years in used sherry, port or oak casks. How do you know when this timehonored Gallic palate-cleanser has done its job? Suddenly, you’re absolutely ready for the next course.

five to try Calvados Roger Groult Réserve 3 Year Old Calvados Run today by a member of the fifth generation of the Groult family, JeanRoger, this producer in the heart of the Pays d’Auge farms about 57 acres planted with some 5,600 apple trees. One of its signature processes is double-distillation over a wood fire. It then ages its calvados in 100-yearold oak casks. This reserve-level calvados was named “world’s best” at the 2014 World Drinks Awards; it’s meant to be a pure expression of the fruit, enjoyed as an aperitif or within a cocktail, a combination of crisp green apple and caramel-vanilla. It’s also made in eight-year-old and 12-yearold versions.

Christian Drouin Fine Pays d’Auge Calvados Made in the Pays d’Auge by Guillaume Drouin, grandson of Christian Drouin Sr., this is the youngest of the producer’s appellation calvados, aged a minimum of three years. It possesses intriguing amounts of body and depth around classic notes of white flowers, caramel, vanilla and apple.

Christian Drouin Pommeau de Normandie A combination of three-quarters apple juice and one-quarter calvados, Pommeau is aged three to four years in oak and is lighter in alcohol than a typical straight-up calvados, at 17 percent instead of the more common

40 percent. This gives it a refreshing quality that’s ideal with food, or as an aperitif, while retaining that signature scent of baked apples and brown sugar. Served chilled in a tulip glass, it’s also a popular accent in cooking as well as a nice addition to cocktails, especially when paired with champagne or prosecco.

Domaine Louis Dupont Calvados VSOP Aged five years in oak barrels, a quarter of them new, this is just one of many worthy calvados produced by the Dupont family, another Pays d’Auge stalwart, which traces its roots in the region to 1703. Dupont’s use of new oak is provocative as well as innovative, but the wood flavors are balanced by striking tones of vanilla, almond and licorice. This is an effective digestif, enjoyed slowly after dinner.

Germain-Robin Heirloom Apple Brandy Founded in California’s Mendocino County in 1982 by Hubert GermainRobin, a native of Cognac, and Ansley Coale, Germain-Robin uses locally grown heirloom apple varieties such as Black Twig, Wickson and Ribston Pippin for this rare American apple brandy, distilling each variety separately, then blending distillates that range in age from six to 15 years. The calvados-inspired result is then aged in French Limousin oak. It tastes exquisitely of green apple with a floral back note and just a hint of butter.
