memo

Get ready for admiring glances Count on spring for crazy weather, new life, tax deadlines, great basketball and, of course, fresh fashion filling the shelves at Boyds. We’ve scoured the globe to find the best new designer clothing, casual wear, shoes and accessories for men and women alike, and we’re happy to report that this spring’s collections are the most exciting in years. We’re especially pleased to introduce 28 new designers to our store this season. Yes, 28! Among them are famous names you know as well as emerging talents, many of whom are exclusive to Boyds in greater Philadelphia. Women will love the new lines from Alexander Wang and Ermanno Scervino, contemporary fashions by Carven, shoes by Anna Baiguera and LoLo, and handbags by Bonastre, to name just a few. Men can instantly up their cool factor in clothing by A.P.C., shoes by Kenzo, contemporary swimwear by Onia, and outerwear by Baracuta, among many others. What do all of our new designers have in common? Their creations embody sophisticated taste, a distinctive and up-to-date point of view, quality materials and fine craftsmanship. Try them on, and

watch your aura change. You’ll feel a positive energy and a little surge of confidence. You’ll begin to notice admiring glances from others. That’s fashion’s promise of spring, delivered to you at Boyds! While we’re proud of the many world-class designers we present to you, what makes Boyds really special and utterly unique is our commitment to personal service and perfect fit. This was brought home after a recent fire and the inevitable water damage. The store quickly reopened, but our tailor shop took longer to get back to full functionality. With its dozens of old-world craftsmen and seamstresses and its panoply of specialized machines, the tailor shop is unlike anything we know of in the country. Truly, this fifth-floor workroom is the nerve center of Boyds, and it’s critical to one of our core traditions. Whether you’re an old friend or new to Boyds, come see us for a refreshing dose of springtime fashion and a stress-free shopping experience you’ll love.

the

boyds guide Always in season

Leather you’ll love

When he was nine years old in Bonito, Italy, Salvatore Ferragamo liked to watch the town cobbler tan leather skins, cut patterns, form them around a wooden foot-shaped “last” and sew the pieces together. That inspired him to launch the Ferragamo brand, which more than 50 years after Salvatore’s death remains synonymous with luxury footwear that stands the test of time. But this brand offers more than shoes. Made from soft, smooth calfskin, belts by Ferragamo are essential to complete a gentleman’s look. Visit Boyds to see the collection of fine Ferragamo belts in various styles, colors and buckles, including the brand’s signature double Gancini model. (Gancini is Italian for “hook,” and this rounded-horseshoe shape has been one of the company’s symbols for almost half a century.)

Your spring wardrobe won’t be complete without Autumn— Autumn Cashmere, that is. It’s recognized as one of the world’s leading knitwear brands. In every season, the collection offers clothing for men and women that is marked by first-class quality, superior craftsmanship and evolving design. Autumn Cashmere strives to provide a fresh take on cashmere and knitwear in colors and styles that are both functional and on trend. The light V-neck sweaters, long-sleeve T-shirts and polos in the men’s spring collection use delicate soft yarns and luxurious trims to create inspired looks. Each piece incorporates a classic yet unique use of color and texture, creating a style that will be a favorite in your closet for years.

spring/summer 2016

Brioni started as an Italian men’s tailoring company and became a fashion leader by the early 1950s. It staged history’s first men’s fashion show and invented the trunk show, in which its collections were presented directly in stores. The brand continues to put quality first—its tailor-made suits are examined dozens of times before they are sold. When it comes to neckwear, Brioni ensures the same quality. The company’s ties are all designed and skillfully handmade in Italy from start to finish. Choose from a myriad of colors and patterns including stripe, paisley, floral and geometrics. We sell a lot of ties at Boyds, and one of our favorite neckwear makers is Brioni. Boyds offers the largest selection of Brioni ties in the region and one of the largest in the country.

the boyds guide Building Philly’s future

If you build it, they will come. That’s the thinking in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia, where new residential buildings seem to be popping up by the minute. Nearly 6,000 new dwellings will be constructed over the next three years, and most will be rental units, according to Laurie Phillips of Philadelphia’s Fox & Roach Realtors. Developers, she says, aim to serve young renters who seek one- and two-bedroom apartments. “The rentals are being built for millennials, hoping to attract young working professionals who are in their 20s and 30s,” she says. The new apartments are being built in desirable neighborhoods such as Old City, Washington Square West, Market Street and the financial district, she adds. The market will see a sizable increase when all new construction is complete. In mid-February, apartment search firm Trulia listed about 4,500 one-bedroom rentals for Philadelphia.

A focus on sports

The crew at Pizzeria Vetri opened their second location in Philadelphia last spring, much to the delight of those who visit Rittenhouse Square. This isn’t your average pizza joint. The new digs (1615 Chancellor St., 215.763.3760) feature the same mouthwatering Neapolitan pizza with unique toppings as the original restaurant (1939 Callowhill St., 215.600.2629), but it also serves the exclusive lobstertopped Rittenhouse Square Pie! And don’t forget to pair your pizza with a glass of wine. Pizzeria Vetri has a large selection of vino, cocktails and craft beers to go with your next slice.

Ask Mr. Etiquette

Jeff Glass explains how to sail through life without giving offense. I see pictures of Hollywood guys standing on the red carpet in tuxedos and sneakers. Is this crazy pairing now permissible, or is it an affront to polite society? —Flummoxed in Philadelphia It’s both, because the answer depends on your social context. Let’s say you’re wearing a funky tuxedo jacket with jeans to a casual party. Sneakers work just fine. But if you’re attending a black-tie affair, then you shouldn’t stray too far from the norm of black patent leather shoes. How far can you stray? Black calfskin shoes are OK, or, if you must let your freak flag fly, embroidered velvet slippers.

| boyds

There’s much more drama in sports than the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, and Marc Aspland captures a lot of it in The Art of Sports Photography (Prestel, $49.95). In this gorgeous book Aspland, chief sports photographer at The Times in London for more than 25 years, shares 100-plus rarely seen images from his personal collection. Prominent figures such as David Beckham, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer and Mike Tyson adorn the pages in exciting action shots and penetrating portraits that tell a dramatic story. Iconic moments from some of the world’s most important sporting events—FIFA World Cup, Wimbledon, the Tour de France, the Olympics—are also featured, alongside images that simply show the joy sports brings to people around the globe. See, for example, page 58, where three young siblings play soccer in South Africa. The goalkeeper leaps through the air to deflect a shot while his brother and sister act as human goalposts. Whether you’re a sports fan, a photography enthusiast or simply someone who appreciates striking imagery, you’ll be captivated by Aspland’s remarkable work.

the boyds guide R&R in Rittenhouse

A shaky stock market, a big business presentation, the hassles of air travel—there’s stress on all sides these days. But doctors tell us stress is bad for our health—what can we do? For one thing, we can set aside time to slow down and relax. Happily, at The Rittenhouse Spa and Club (210 W. Rittenhouse Square, 215.790.2500), a little R&R is easy to achieve. Located in the heart of Rittenhouse Square, the spa is a healthy retreat from Philadelphia’s hustle and bustle. Enjoy specialized massages like the signature Rittenhouse Massage or The Quartet, with two therapists who work magic with their four hands in a soothing, choreographed rhythm. Need a facial? Choose from a variety of facial treatments like Detox, Vitamin C and—for those on the go—the 30-minute Express. Guests have full use of the state-of-the-art fitness center, sauna, steam rooms and indoor pool.

Why buy a tuxedo?

24

BOYD.ss16.guide.indd 24

Perfect fit. When a tuxedo fits properly, you feel more comfortable and look your best. Other people notice that. Dollars and sense. It takes just a few tux-worthy occasions in a decade for this garment to pay for itself. And when you own, you may find you’re tuxclad more often. Top quality. When you buy a tuxedo or other formal attire at Boyds, you can select from the finest Italian fabrics. They’ll stand the test of time and also have a softer, more sumptuous feel. Personal style. The basic black tuxedo is the hallmark of elegance. You’ll find variations in lapel styles (shawl, peak or notch), number of buttons (one or two) and contrasting fabrics (satin or grosgrain). Most tuxedos have a silk stripe down the length of the trousers. To make a personal statement, choose a subtly patterned black fabric or a midnight blue. A velvet jacket paired with solid trousers and a fancy bow tie is another elegant option. Whatever you choose, your tux can express your style. Stop by Boyds and let us show you the myriad ways you can customize a tuxedo for the special occasions coming up in spring and summer.

Cover up in style trunk shows Trunk shows at Boyds give you the opportunity to meet representatives of your favorite brands and have clothing, shoes and other items custom-made. Upcoming trunk shows and events include the following: March 12: Mel Gambert custom shirt event March 16: Hamilton custom shirts March 16–19: Made-to-Measure luxury clothing event March 18: Bontoni shoes March 18–26: Escada caravan show March 19: Eton shirts, W.

Schneiders of Salzburg made a name for itself by manufacturing waterproof trench coats in the 1940s. But the company soon became a fashion star when it introduced fine luxury fabrics such as angora wool and cashmere into its collection. Today, Schneiders jackets and coats are defined by clean lines and sophisticated styling—and they still protect you splendidly from the elements. The rainwear, for example, is designed so moisture easily evaporates, allowing you to stay dry even if you’re caught in a spring shower. Let one of our sales associates introduce you to the collection.

Catch a rising star Nicholas Kirkwood, the German-born, London-raised designer, launched his brand of women’s shoes in 2005, and already he’s mentioned alongside names like Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo. You can make a statement with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwoods, which come in a range of styles, from flats and loafers to platforms and pumps, with both classic and playful designs—the spring collection includes a Pac-Man-inspired theme. Each handcrafted pair demonstrates the designer’s fashion-forward thinking, from the kaleidoscope of colors to the timeless embellishments. Think you’re ready? Boyds will help you find the right pair of Nicholas Kirkwood shoes to match your needs and style.

Pants perfected

| boyds

We hear there are a few men in Philadelphia who don’t yet have Incotex trousers in their closet. If you’re one of them, please do yourself a favor and stop by Boyds to try on a pair. This Italian brand is the Maserati of men’s trousers, producing perfectly tailored, uniquely comfortable pants since 1951. It all started, in fact, with the 1951 line, the pioneer of smart casual style, and has expanded over the decades to include a military-inspired collection as well as a fivepocket collection. Details are among the trademarks of Incotex—the signature blue belt hook holder, for example, and the V-split on the belt for maximum comfort. Then, of course, there are the fine fabrics—cotton and linen/cotton blends, chambray, super 130s wool and wool/ cashmere blends—and the wide range of colors. Think red and pink, French and royal blue, green and aqua, violet and purple along with traditional charcoal, stone and khaki. Visit Boyds to find a hue—or two—that’s right for you.

Just juice it

Your best friend’s wedding is just weeks away and you want to look good in the photos. Think about trying an all-natural juice cleanse to shed a couple of pounds. A cleanse is a semi-fast in which you focus on drinking fruit and vegetable juices. Throughout Philadelphia you can find places like Yellow Juice Bar (2046 Sansom St., 267.519.8296) and Stripp’d Juice (263 N. 3rd St., 267.550.7877) that can guide you through your cleanse. They work with you and Mother Nature, using natural fruits and veggies to create a healthy menu or a juice customized to meet your taste. Of course, you can always make your own juices at home—just avoid powders and potions.

Workouts that work

Elliptical. Treadmill. Free weights. Let’s face it: Your workout routine needs a new spin. We’re not talking shadowboxing inside a meat locker or sprinting up the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. How about trying something new? CrossFit combines weight training, aerobics and gymnastics. The key is intensity—you’re pushing yourself to do the most you can through each exercise in the workout. And because you’re always putting in max effort, you reach fitness goals sooner. Check out CrossFit Center City (1229 Chestnut St., 267.909.8210), Fearless Athletics–CrossFit South Philly (744 S. 11th St., 215.983.1515) or CrossFit Supercharged (1931 Washington Ave., 215.546.1008). Spinning is a low-impact exercise, but a good spin class never has a dull moment. A 45-minute class can burn around 500 calories and will help you build muscle tone—the workout focuses on your core, legs and glutes. The music is fun too. Try Body Cycle Studio (1923 Chestnut St., 215.563.3663) or Flywheel Sports (1521 Locust St., 215.600.1281). Barre workouts have become increasingly popular in the past decade. Typically, moves are low-impact and are done with just your own body weight. Classes usually begin with mat-based warm-ups such as push-ups or planks, and then continue at the bar with lower-body movements. Unlike squats and presses that require deep bends, barre classes call for shorter isometric movements. Stop by at Ploome Fitness & Lifestyle Boutique (1040 N. American St., 215.238.0200), Pure Barre (1701 Walnut St., 267.234.7825) or Focus Barre and Yoga (1923 Chestnut St., 215.575.0147).

the boyds guide Wear works of art

Theirs was a college project unlike any other. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez teamed up at the Parsons School of Design in 2002, collaborating on their senior thesis to create a clothing line they called Proenza Schouler—a pairing of their mothers’ maiden names. It was a hit. McCollough and Hernandez continue to draw inspiration from all types of art, from contemporary to pop, and it shows in the innovative designs of their elegant skirts and dresses and luxurious blouses and sweaters. In 2008 they unveiled their first handbag collection, which included the PS1, a classic satchel that has become the brand’s signature. Four years later, Proenza Schouler introduced its first line of luxury footwear. New to Proenza Schouler? Stop in at Boyds, where we’ll introduce you to the brand and help you pick out your new favorites from the spring 2016 collection.

Go with Indego

Sometimes you want to leave the car at home and get some healthy exercise. For days like that, the Indego bicycle-share system provides a clean, green alternative for getting around. And this summer, you’ll have even more locations where you can catch a ride. Using a $1.5 million grant from the William Penn Foundation, the city will install new stations and bring the bright blue bikes around parks and waterfronts. That’s a big plus for residents, commuters and visitors. The demand for this transportation option has been growing since the program was launched last year—Indego reached the 100,000ride mark faster than any new-bike program in a similar-sized city. The goal is to expand by a total of 24 new stations throughout the city, including neighborhoods with fewer transit options, by the end of next year.

Tourists will get their Phil

We knew our town was hot. Now the travel guidebook publisher Lonely Planet has designated Philadelphia “the best place to visit in the U.S. in 2016.” Looks like we won’t be lonely this summer. Let’s treat visitors right. If they’ve come to mark the 100th birthday of the National Park Service, which maintains Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, let’s not sneer that in Philly a mere century is a trifle. Increased tourism will be good for local merchants, shops and stores. So at Boyds we’re putting out the welcome mat. But we won’t neglect our main task of dressing folks who have the good sense to live here.

The chef is IN

Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a night out with old friends, there’s a perfect place for you near Rittenhouse Square. It’s Vernick Food and Drink (2031 Walnut St., 267.639.6644), an oasis for new American cuisine, where chef-owner Greg Vernick treats Philadelphia foodies to a creative and thoughtful menu. He’s trained chefs from Canada to Japan to Qatar, and you’ll find hints of international flavors and spices in every dish. Land or sea, small plates or entrees? The choice is yours. There’s a large selection of desserts and wines too.

GROOMING

You... only better Are those forehead creases and under-eye bags getting you down? No worries. There’s an “injectable” for just about everything. Forehead: Wrinkle relaxers—Botox, Dysport, Xeomin— block the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, “freezing” muscles and temporarily reducing the appearance of crinkles and creases. To maintain your smooth new look, repeat the procedure every four to six months. Between eyebrows: Botox and its cousins also are the injectables of choice for lessening vertical frown lines ’tween the brows—as well as crow’s feet. Results last about six months.

Under eyes: Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane are often used to fix the furrows that can come with aging, and their effects last six months to a year. Cheeks: Voluma from Juvéderm, another hyaluronic acid filler, restores contour around the cheekbones in a matter of minutes. Added bonus: You won’t need another injection for two years. Around the mouth: Juvéderm, Restylane and Radiesse are all effective at softening “smile lines” (a.k.a. nasolabial folds). Radiesse lasts the longest of the three—a year or more. Another option is the collagen filler Bellafill. And here’s something to smile about: Its effects can last up to five years.

Neck: A relatively new injectable called Kybella has recently been approved by the FDA for treating double chins. One caveat: It can cause an uneven-looking result. A long-lasting improvement is hoped for, but time will tell.

What price, vanity?

child’s first glimpse into a kaleidoscope—like the first time he spins and makes himself dizzy—can be a mind-expanding moment of discovery. “I still remember the sense of wonder I felt,” says Milan-based designer Andrea Pompilio, now heading into his third year as creative consultant for Canali. That’s why he showed different-sized slow-mo videos within a fragmented kaleidoscope image as a backdrop at a recent Fashion Week as his models strode across the catwalk to show off the line’s spring/summer 2016 offerings for men. That way, people could appreciate the overall impact of each jacket, sportcoat, suit or other garment while also seeing Canali’s relentlessly meticulous attention to fine tailoring and detail. Indeed, this family company has been a synonym for tailor-made Italian luxury since it was launched in 1934. Today it boasts ultramodern manufacturing facilities and some 1,800 employees worldwide, but it remains the essence of what makes “Made in Italy” a cherished label. For Canali, the values of wearability and comfort are always in harmony with the ideals of top-quality materials and precise craftsmanship. The Canali man? He’s a creature of kaleidoscopically changing moods, as the images at left suggest. “He’s a free spirit, audacious and unconventional, who plays with a casual elegance rich in details and opulent textile fabrics,” Pompilio has said. There’s always room for whimsy, but never for the haphazard. And a constant emphasis on innovation keeps the brand’s vision fresh, as it surely is for this season.

Rascal with style Actor Johnny Depp likes to ignore the rules and lose himself completely in a role. This abandon is reflected in his personal style too. By Timothy Kelley

i

above. And even when it’s theoretically a bit too much, he’ll somehow look great. On occasion, Depp’s film roles provide inspiration for his sartorial choices—consciously or not. When he turned up at the recent premiere for the movie Black Mass wearing a high-decibel, peach-colored suit, people wondered if he’d taken the role of gangster Whitey Bulger too much to heart. But he has also incorporated a pirate motif suggested by his costume as Captain Jack Sparrow, the character he’s played in the popular Pirates of the Caribbean series since 2003. “There’s only one man who can look red carpet-ready in a pirate kilt, caftan, handkerchief and cowboy hat, worn all at the same time and topped off with a gold chain or eleven,” wrote Details magazine not long ago. “And that man is Johnny Depp.” Like any true original, Depp is an exciting, unpredictable amalgam of influences. And he’s always worth watching.

There’s a bit of the rocker in film star Johnny Depp, who played guitar in garage bands before he ever memorized lines from a script. But there’s also a soulful intensity—seen in this hatted, necklaced, bespectacled and tattooed Depp of 2013—that makes him a potent performer in demanding movie roles.

spring/summer 2016

f attitude is all you’ve got, watch out. But if you’ve got attitude plus integrity and tons of talent, let the world watch out. That’s the way it is with Johnny Depp. This handsome, sometimes feisty actor first caught our eye in the ’80s Fox police show 21 Jump Street. Since then he’s ruffled feathers from time to time—and worn them too. As an actor he’s known for going deep, for being less concerned with box office than with thinking— and playing—outside the proverbial box. And he’s similarly intense about what he wears. “There’s something that’s authentic about Johnny, and you can see it in his eyes,” said Council of Fashion Designers of America President Diane von Furstenberg in 2012, when the group made Depp the first male recipient of its Fashion Icon Award. “He’s nice and naughty.” Depp’s affinity for accessories is well known. He’ll sport a hat, a scarf, a necklace, a bracelet, a bandana, purple sunglasses or maybe all of the

hen I first visited Shanghai in 1984, it was a cramped, backward-looking place still awakening from its long slumber under the reign of Chairman Mao. The hotels were musty, having for decades served mostly visiting Communist bureaucrats and diplomats. The Shanghai Museum of Art had dusty exhibit cases of antiquities, somnolent guards and few visitors. The streets were thronged with bicycles and the occasional VIP in a red-flagged limo. The old “concessions”—neighborhoods

spring/summer 2016

By some measures the world’s most populous city, Shanghai, China, has been a key commercial hub for centuries, but only in recent decades has its architecture soared so dramatically. Here’s the skyline at sunset.

once administered by foreign powers—had been reduced to warrens of shambolic mansions in which dozens of families dwelt with clotheslines running out of windows. Memorably, I saw a jazz band of elderly Chinese gentlemen who played nightly at the venerable Peace Hotel along the Bund. (A bund is an embanked thoroughfare fronting a river.) The bar had hosted the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Noël Coward in the 1930s, and you could feel it. Was it the same city when I went back just last year? Well, yes and no. Shanghai is still a fascinating patchwork of China’s history, with many visible remnants of its imperial past and its expansion by the British more than 170 years ago as a base for selling opium to the natives. But today it styles itself “the City of the Future”—indeed, it’s a metropolis of futuristic towers filled with newly minted multimillionaires and conspicuous consumption of every brand name from Hermès to Ferrari. And the eight-minute ride on the magnetic-levitation train from the airport reaches 267 mph and makes you feel you’re rushing headlong into times unknown. The best place to bask in Shanghai’s 21st-century excess is the Pudong financial district, with as many skyscrapers as 20 Manhattans and a neon display that for sheer exuberance outshines Times Square. Structures such as the 1,380-foot Jin Mao Tower (finished in 1999) and the Shanghai World Financial Center (1,614 feet, 2008) were superseded last year by the 2,073-foot Shanghai Tower, the world’s second-tallest building. The symbol of this megacity, the 1,535-foot Oriental Pearl TV Tower, seems to be made from giant Tinkertoys. For young, rich Shanghai residents, luxe brands are the rule. You’ve got to wear Prada, drive a Mercedes and smoke Cuban cigars. Dior, Versace and Hugo Boss wares fill the upscale malls. Shanghai shopping is nonstop on the pedestrians-only Nanjing Road and the equally popular Huaihai Road. The good news for traditionalists like me is that the Old City still offers a veritable maze of lanes that are well worth exploring on foot, with small markets and glimpses of street life. So does nearby Yuanmingyuan Road, which has some wellpreserved turn-of-the-last-century buildings. Want to go further back? The Square Pagoda was built in the Song Dynasty, about 1,000 years ago. This grand cultural relic looks like a wedding cake; it’s surrounded by ancient buildings and gardens. The former French Concession is also home to Fuxing Park, where old men follow a Far East custom, This page, from top, a guest room and a lobby reception area at the Narada Boutique Hotel Shanghai Hongkou in a northern Shanghai neighborhood; a characteristic Shanghai contrast between old and new. Opposite, Shanghai’s Pudong financial district was an ambitious riverfront development project on the Huangpu River.

bringing pet birds in bamboo cages to hang on tree branches to sing while the men smoke and gossip. What has changed most, perhaps, is the arts scene. The Shanghai Art Museum now has one of the world’s best collections of ancient bronzes, ceramics and calligraphy. The Rockbund Art Museum, a restored 1932 Art Deco building, is the place to go for strikingly fresh exhibitions. And the West Bund, becoming a world-class culture hub, includes an art center that is the site of an annual art fair, and the Yuz Museum, with contemporary works. The Long Museum West Bund was China’s largest private art museum when it debuted in 2014; this year, DreamWorks studio opens its $2.5 billion Shanghai DreamCenter, with an animation studio and an entertainment complex with performance venues. When it comes to dining in Shanghai, be sure to drink tea in the garden at the Ming Dynasty-era Guyuan Teahouse on Fuxing Zhong Lu in the French Concession. Cha’s Restaurant, a traditional cha chaan teng (tea eatery) is owned by a Hong Kong movie producer. Din Tai Fung offers some of the city’s best soup dumplings (xiaolong bao), with a delicate skin wrapped around a juicy pork or crab filling. Jia Jia Tang Bao, in the Huangpu District, also has great dumplings. Jishi is small and crowded but serves classic Shanghai food, from tofu skin with mushrooms (fuzhu) to sweet-and-sour spare ribs (tangcu paigu) and crab with vermicelli sheets (xiefen fenpi). At night, head to Shouning Lu, which has street food cooked on portable grills, food carts and the aromas of roast duck and crayfish. Post-dinner bar hopping is one of the best ways to get a handle on current Shanghai residents. The clubby rooftop Bar Rouge at Bund 18 is great for people watching. As for lodging, Shanghai has an ever-expanding roster of the world’s best luxury hotels, from Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong to Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai and The Peninsula Shanghai. I’m partial to the Park Hyatt Shanghai, an oasis of calm in a frenetic city. I also like Waterhouse at South Bund, a new 19-room boutique hotel in a former 1930s warehouse—and an antidote to high-rises. But I confess that my heart belongs to the old Peace Hotel along the Bund, now the completely redone Fairmont Peace Hotel. It’s sleek, sophisticated and modern, but luckily the management has restored the Jazz Bar, where a combo of Chinese gentlemen age 80 and up plays jazz standards nightly. Cocktail in hand, I can almost be persuaded—once again— that I’m back in the Shanghai of the ’30s. spring/summer 2016

What’s your pleasure? A Zen-like meditation garden? A luxurious poolside sanctuary? A lush spot for entertaining? In the hands of a talented landscape architect, natural stone helps define a garden, adding texture and contrast and providing the perfect foil for plants and flowers.

Stacked stone walls surround this intimate garden “room,” which is punctuated by a delightfully weathered stone pedestal and ribbed planter.

This page, natural stone in neutral shades of grey enhances the sophisticated yet relaxed personality of this poolscape and outdoor living space. Opposite, pyramid-shaped stone finials, found at an antiques shop, stand in contrast to the graceful curves of the boxwood hedges below.

This page, a stone Buddha sculpture serves as the focal point of a tranquil meditation space that borrows elements of classic Japanese garden design. Opposite, a meandering stone wall provides structure to a sculpted hillside while also creating one of the best seats in the “house.”

Golf has a Gaelic accent at Lahinch on Ireland’s windy west coast. Just don’t let that medieval castle ruin your game! By Michael Hiller

T

| boyds

he world has plenty of good golf courses—usually big, sweeping swaths of land that hug coastlines, hike up rocky slopes, pierce clouds and creep through timber. But there aren’t a lot of great ones, the kind that grab you from the first hole, squeeze you in the middle and draw you in so deep you can’t imagine playing anywhere better. Lahinch is one of them. Lahinch Golf Club, a 124-year-old golf course on the southwest coast of Ireland, is among the world’s finest. And you don’t go to Lahinch to gamble in a casino, dine in the Michelin-star restaurant or lie on a sandy beach (even though it’s one of Ireland’s foremost surfing locations). You go hoping to find that quintessential Irish golf experience that swirls in the back of your mind: emerald green grasses, salty ocean spray and heavy clouds cracking open with drenching rains that soak deep into your bones and can only be warmed by a peat fire and old whiskey. Standing on the third tee box of the Old Course at Lahinch Golf Club

recently, the churning Atlantic over my left shoulder and the Number 2 green to my right, I found it easy to pretend that golf originated here, in Ireland, rather than in Scotland, a few hundred miles east across the Irish Sea. A 30 mile-anhour rainstorm whipped in off the ocean, first slapping my ball off its wooden tee, then batting the tee shot into knee-deep rough. I popped the ball back to the fairway on my second shot, where it bounced between uneven patches of turf and soil as if the course were a pachinko machine. I saved par with a punch shot to the left edge of the green, allowing the wind to nudge the ball close to the hole for a tap-in. The rain stopped when my foursome reached the par-5 fourth hole, a narrow fairway that threads to a green tucked directly behind a 35-foot-tall sand dune known as Klondyke Hill. A burly man stood atop the dune, directing traffic. When he waved his red flag, I hit. My approach shot had to fly over the dune then land softly on the other side. “Sorry, lad,” the flag man called to me as I hiked to the

green. “The wind got the best of it.” The par-3 fifth hole is no less of a challenge: a 154-yard blind shot to a sunken green surrounded by yet more tall dunes. “There’s an old Irish saying about golf,” says the innkeeper of the Vaughan Lodge, a popular hotel near the golf course. “It says, ‘There’s no links without the sea, and no golf without the wind.’ And no one knew this better than Old Tom Morris.” Morris, of course, was the original designer of the Old Course at Lahinch (he didn’t take all the credit— he said Lahinch was the finest natural links course he’d ever seen) and also of another classic: the Jubilee Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. By the time my group walked off the 18th hole, we were humbled, sodden, exhausted—yet eager to play it again. But that would have to wait because Lahinch is more than a one-horse town. Across the street from the Old Course lies the Castle Course, a shorter, flatter 18-hole sibling punctuated by the ruins of a 14thcentury castle. And we played that next.

Clockwise from top: The single remaining wall of Dough Castle (1306) provides a dramatic backdrop to the seventh hole on Lahinch’s Castle Course. Famous for golf since the 1890s, Lahinch also has become a popular international surfing destination. Goats have roamed across the links since the early 1900s and continue to be a source of amusement to visitors. Stunningly beautiful scenery is an added bonus. A traditional heavy-on-the-protein Irish breakfast is required before hitting the links. Consider yourself lucky if you get this close. The shorter Castle Course can serve as a warmup for its bigger sibling, the Old Course, across the road.

This beachy bastion of celebrities is gaining new fame for for the wines it produces. By Josh Sens

I

n the early 1980s, while working as a studio musician in Nashville, Elliott Dolin did his share of California dreaming. But those reveries involved the Beach Boys, not buttery chardonnay. “All I pictured was fun, fun, fun, with lots of surf and sunshine,” says Dolin, 65. “Wine wasn’t even in the back of my mind.”
By the middle of the decade, though, Dolin had left behind his life as a versatile bass player, recording with such legends as Johnny Cash and John Prine. He’d embraced a new existence in Los Angeles, where he took a job as a real estate broker and fell in with a group of wine enthusiasts. Over regular business luncheons, Dolin saw his wine horizons widen. His palate sharpened. A passion developed. In 1998, he and his wife Lynn moved to Malibu, the upscale seameets-mountains city just north of

Santa Monica. Now better known around the world as an affluent hideaway for celebrities, Malibu was once recognized as a bright star in the wine world—it welcomed its first vineyards in the early 1800s. Though most of those vineyards were lost during Prohibition, the climate and the soil remained ideal for grape growing. The Dolins understood that promise when they planted 900 vines of chardonnay on a small, southwardfacing plot behind their home. Their first year of production, in 2009, was a bootstrapping test run, carried out at a custom-crush facility just up the coast. The result was so successful that the couple upped their ante, hiring a respected winemaker from the Santa Ynez Valley to help fine-tune their operation. Mission accomplished. Their second release, a 2010 Dolin Malibu Estate Vineyards chardonnay, won a coveted Double Gold Medal from the San Francisco Chronicle, beating

out such iconic Napa Valley labels as Rombauer and Cakebread. “Before you knew it we’d made that leap from ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be nice to have a vineyard?’ to ‘Let’s try to make a serious go at this,’” Dolin says. Not that Malibu wines were a slamdunk sell. “When people think Malibu, they tend to think of movie stars and celebrities in big homes by the beach,” Dolin says. “But I always say if you turn your back to the beach you’re staring up at the mountains, and that’s an entirely different side of Malibu.” Joining forces with other Malibu vintners, the Dolins worked to raise the profile of a region whose temperate coastal climate and volcanic soils are comparable to swaths of Napa and Sonoma. As part of their efforts, they applied to have Malibu recognized as its own grape-growing appellation—a designation that was awarded in the summer of 2014. At 46 miles long and

Clockwise from top: Colcanyon Estate has made its mark with award-winning merlot, cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux-varietal blends.

Wine tasting has become a favorite pastime in Malibu.

| grape eight miles wide, the Malibu Coast American Viticultural Area stretches through the Santa Monica mountains, its boundaries touching on Hollywood, Thousand Oaks and Beverly Hills. It includes such noted wineries as Montage Vineyards, a respected producer of chardonnay and pinot noir, and Colcanyon Estate, a property that has made its mark with award-winning merlot, cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux-varietal blends. To drive the winding roads through the coastal mountains here is to stumble on delightful day-tripper destinations like Malibu Wines, where a tasting room opens onto sylvan picnic grounds. With Malibu real estate prices at a premium, vineyard acres aren’t easy to come by, so a number of local vintners acquire additional fruit from beyond the appellation. The Dolins, for instance, make a subtle pinot noir with grapes from Santa Barbara, as well as a Central Valley-sourced rosé. But their estate chardonnay, drawn from their original Malibu plantings, remains a Dolin signature, a complex wine that holds up as nicely as a summer sipper as it does as a companion to food. “If you told me all those years ago that this is what I’d end up doing, I never would have believed it,” Dolin says. It just goes to show that you never know where a dream may take you.

TASTING NOTES 2013 Dolin Estate Chardonnay $39 Judicious use of oak lends dimension to this well-structured white, which exudes hints of pear and vanilla on the nose. Those flavors give way to pineapple and citrus on the palate and resolve into a clean, smooth finish. A great warm-weather wine, perfect with seafood or grilled vegetables. 2009 Colcanyon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon $39 This lush, full-bodied red suggests ripe plums and dark cherries on the nose but plays on the palate in a medley of oak and summer berries. With its fruit-forward profile, it pairs beautifully with hearty roasts and braises.

2011 Montage Vineyards Seven Sons Syrah $45 An intriguing dark red in color, the supple wine gives off complex aromatics that mingle hints of blueberry with clove and other wintry spices. Its round structure feels almost silky on the palate, which gives way to a long, smooth, berry-inflected finish. Clockwise from top: Malibu grapes have produced several awardwinning wines. Everyone knows the beverage of choice in this sea-meets-mountains city. This merlot from Colcanyon Estate won a bronze medal at the San Francisco International Wine Festival. Wine connoisseurs enjoy the Malibu Wine Festival. Jim Palmer shows off a gold medal winner from Malibu Vineyards.

tuscan treasure

On a hill overlooking Florence, the luxe villa Il Salviatino promises a soothing immersion in the rural charms of the Renaissance. By Everett Potter

| boyds

T

he glories of Florence are legion, from walking awestruck through the Uffizi Gallery to marveling at the Duomo, the 15th-century cathedral with a spectacular dome designed by Brunelleschi that lies at the heart of this Renaissance city. Not to mention daily samplings of the world’s best gelato. But at day’s end, instead of staying in the marvelous but often congested heart of town, the cognoscenti head for the hills of neighboring Fiesole. Barely 15 minutes from the Duomo by taxi (assuming a local is at the wheel), Fiesole offers a tranquil aerie ideal for contemplating the marvels of Florence. And there’s no better place to make your overnight base than a spectacularly restored villa there called Il Salviatino. Long the favored hillside summer retreat of wealthy Florentine families and British writers such as Robert and Elizabeth Browning, Fiesole was the birthplace of Renaissance painter Fra Angelico. It features Etruscan and Roman ruins and a Roman theater that is still used today. Il Salviatino dates from the 15th century—it was once the home of the Bardi family of bankers. The years have brought many owners and several additions, including a tower, a conservatory and gardens. But for nearly half a century,

until 2007, it housed students for Stanford University’s overseas branch. That’s when veteran hotelier Marcello Pignozzo bought the run-down villa masquerading as a dorm, hired award-winning architect Luciano Columbo and poured millions of euros into restoring the buildings and the gardens. When they finished in 2010, they had 45 exquisite guest rooms and suites, some retaining 19th-century frescoes, along with public areas festooned with fine paintings and a blend of antique and modern furniture. Think of this as a country house hotel at the edge of the city. There is no check-in desk. Instead, you will be met, escorted and coddled throughout your stay by so-called “service ambassadors,” which is a bit like having a flock of concierges hovering just out of sight. This remarkably restored and reimagined villa has oak floors, red carpets, silver candelabras and a staircase in the entrance fit for a 1940s Hollywood movie. If there’s a favorite room, it might be the grand library, with Chesterfield sofas begging you to sit and read a book or maybe just contemplate the grandeur. The guest rooms are decorated in muted browns and yellows, the look classic and a tad conservative, and the marble bathrooms are opulent indeed. For those seeking a bit

more, there are suites to satisfy every fantasy. The top-floor Ojetti suite is on three levels with a glass-floored rooftop conservatory and a Jacuzzi overlooking the distant rooftops of Florence. There is a terraced pool area with three infinity pools that’s open from mid-April to mid-October, and pampering is available at the Spa Il Salviatino. During the summer, you can dine alfresco at La Terraza, which exudes a certain expected formality with its white linen-covered chairs—even with gravel underfoot. The designated dining room, Le Serre, offers more regimented gastronomy. And when it’s time to go into Florence there’s a shuttle that conveniently leaves you next to the Duomo. Il Salviatino is refreshingly 21st century when it comes to conveniences, and your room will have a Bose sound system, an iPod dock and a full-length mirror that conceals a TV. Yet what you’re likely to remember are not the electronics but the 12 acres of formal gardens and the private park that surround the hotel, as well as distant views of Brunelleschi’s dome framed by ancient pine trees. That is the true essence of Italian luxury. Il Salviatino, Via del Salviatino 21, Fiesole, Florence, Tuscany, Italy (00 39 055 904 1111; salviatino.com)

made-to-measure

Your perfect shirt Your style, your comfort, your exact fit. Made-to-Measure is a shirt story that always has a happy ending.

| boyds

A

t Boyds, we offer Made-toMeasure shirts from some of the world’s finest men’s designers—Brioni, Canali, Ermenegildo Zegna, Isaia, Kiton—in addition to the country’s best shirtmakers. Each brand has its own distinctive style. A common misconception is that Made-to-Measure is a complicated and costly proposition—not at Boyds. We offer options in several price ranges, making it accessible for everyone. Here’s how it works: Stop by and visit our Made-to-Measure shirt shop on the second floor. Our experts will talk to you about your personal style, fit, details and occasion. We will take you through the fabrics and options to design exactly what you have in mind. Whether it’s formal, business or casual—we can do it all. We help you

select the collar, cuff and even buttons that you would like. Once you’ve selected your base style, it’s time to talk fabric. For spring and summer, we’re thinking you may want to consider a Sea Island cotton, an exceptionally soft fabric that feels like nothing else against the body. Then it’s on to color and pattern—solids, stripes, checks. Next, we consider various elements of style—barrel cuff or French cuff? Button-down collar or spread? Placket or no placket? The options are nearly endless. At some point you will, of course, be measured by one of our on-site tailors. Yes, these exceptionally able gentlemen can always make alterations in a shirt you’ve bought off the shelf. But the truth is, there’s something special about having a shirt made to your

precise measurements. Broad shoulders and small waist, or vice versa? Either way, you’re going to look great in your Made-to-Measure shirt. It’s a modest investment of time and, if we may say so, a pretty good deal. Typically, the turn-around time for a Made-to-Measure shirt is three to five weeks. And you’ll pay $160 to $300 for it—about the same as a fine shirt off the shelf. You can start with just one if you like, but we’re fairly sure you won’t stop with just one. “Once the shirt is made and the customer tries it on, I usually get a phone call,” says Jeff Glass. “He’ll say, ‘You know that shirt you made me? I love it. Can you make five more?’” Be warned. Once you’ve tried Made-toMeasure, you may find it hard to go back to a ready-made shirt.
