MEMO

We have your wish list covered

F

or many of us, there are two sides to the holidays: the spirit of giving to others and the feeling of joy when receiving a generous gift. At Garmany, we have all sides covered, whether you’re looking for something to add to your wish list or an item to place under the tree for a loved one to unwrap. If you walk into the store right now, you’ll fall in love with the richness found in all of our garments, from fine cashmere sweaters and plush five-pocket pants to distinguished sportcoats and warm leather bombers. We’ve hand-selected everything in the store, guaranteeing

that you’ll give or receive the very best products in the world. Our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide offers you a glimpse of what you’ll find here and perhaps it will give you an idea or two. Cold-weather gear always makes a great gift, especially when dealing with our East Coast winters. Guys can stay warm with leather and suede gloves by Hestra or (one of my favorite pieces) a soft cashmere scarf by Loro Piana. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a shirt or two by Frank & Eileen, a Salvatore Ferragamo belt or accessories like Jonas Studio’s necklaces and cufflinks by Deakin & Francis. Of course, options abound for the ladies in your life. Let your wife or daughter enjoy the texture of a leather clutch by Ferragamo or cross-body bag by Furla, or surprise them (and Mom!) with a piece of jewelry—I recommend a necklace or ring by Kendra Scott. And like the guys, women will love our selection of winter outerwear: Canada Goose coats, Moncler scarves and hats, Vincent Pradier gloves. Garmany truly has something for everyone—family, friends, co-workers— so stop by and let us be your one-stop shop this season. We hope to see you soon, and from our family to yours, we wish happy holidays to all!

Photographer Harry Benson took this striking photo of the late Amy Winehouse at The Savoy hotel in London in 2007. He remembers being impressed by the singer’s “European, oldfashioned manners.”“There was no coarseness,” says the photographer, who’s the subject of the Magnolia Pictures documentary Harry Benson: Shoot First, available on Netflix. “She served a cup of tea to everyone on the shoot and poured herself a cup last.”

For those who love the slopes, there’s a surprisingly satisfying destination: Japan! By Everett Potter

HOLIDAY 2017

GAR.Hol17.sportinglife.indd 53

11/15/17 9:13 PM


J

Of course, I had to ski Niseko when I was there, almost as a badge of honor. Yet while it gets the powder, it also gets the crowds, so I chose to stay in the smaller resort area called Kiroro Snow World, which many Japan fanatics consider the region’s hidden gem. Here I found that the five-star Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, was the ideal base camp for my Japanese skiing adventure. This Starwood property has cleanlined modern rooms that verge on minimalist, with the airy white duvets beloved by Japanese hoteliers. I chose a conventional room, but you could elect to sleep in one of the traditional Japanese-style suites with tatami mats and futons on the f loor. A shuttle bus runs frequently between the hotel and the ski slopes of Kiroro, a medium-sized resort spread over two mountain peaks. The resort has 21 runs, which the Japanese call “courses,” with trails for beginners, intermediates and experts. There were wide and long red slopes such as Nagamine Course 2-C that were ideal for a morning leg-warming cruise even if they’d been buffed out to perfect corduroy. There were also more challenging back slopes such as Asari Course 2-A to venture to once I found my footing. Kiroro is not a dramatically challenging mountain, but there is tree skiing as well, which is always a thrill. What the mountain lacks is crowds and lift lines. As for precipitation, the snowfall was more of the “Snow Falling Gently on Cedars” variety than a fullblown whiteout, which was ideal. As I made my way down the mountain, I felt as if I were skiing inside a classic Japanese woodcut. Lunch was a highlight

every day, usually a bowl of udon or soba noodles, or maybe tempura. Three days into my stay, I ventured an hour away to Niseko. I found it packed with skiers, with loudspeakers on lift towers making too many announcements for my taste. I quickly learned that getting off the piste and into the trees was the way to go. Skiing in Japan turned out to have one other major advantage: lack of altitude. Niseko is only about 4,200 feet high, Kiroro about 3,200 feet. Consider that the thin-aired villages of Vail and Aspen sit at around 8,000 feet and that their lifts take you upwards of 11,000 feet, and you’ll quickly appreciate the difference. Back at the Kiroro Hotel, I discovered the classic Japanese relaxation comforts that are antidotes to hours of acrobatic turns through all that powder. The Kiroro has both an indoor and an outdoor onsen, a classic Japanese style communal thermal bath that is ferociously hot, just as it should be. There you’re segregated by sex, your garb consisting only of a very small washcloth. There’s also a separate onsen area in the Kitanoyu Spa and an even odder Japanese offering, the hot stone sauna, where you lie on stones heated to (or beyond) 115 degrees Fahrenheit. When I followed this with a cold draft Sapporo, I was barely capable of getting to dinner. Fortunately, the hotel has five eateries, including a very good sushi restaurant. Nightlife, short of a karaoke lounge, doesn’t exist. After a day in deep powder and a late afternoon soak and sauna, it was all I could do to order sushi and contemplate the next day’s heroics.

Clockwise from top: The lights of Niseko’s Hirafu village shine brightly at the base of the mountain; a major perk of skiing in Japan? Getting to enjoy Japanese food every day; after a long day on the slopes, a soak in the hotel onsen (a classic Japanese style communal thermal bath) is a must; the famous “snow monsters” at Zao Onsen Ski Resort are fir trees clumped with ice and snow; a deluxe king room at the Kiroro Hotel features clean lines and a minimalist feel.

apan is famous for so many things, from ancient temples to day-after-tomorrow tech, that typical American skiers can be forgiven if they don’t think of f lying halfway around the world for snow. Ah, but what they’re missing! Among avid skiers and snowboarders like myself, “Japan” has become essentially a code word for “powder.” I have skied all over the United States, South America and Europe, but I’ve never encountered deeper, lighter, f luffier powder than I did in Japan, day after day. Mecca for me and other Japan-bound skiers is the northern island of Hokkaido, which lies east of the Russian mainland, just across the Sea of Japan. That combination of northerly latitude and cold sea creates a series of winter storms that deliver ungodly amounts of light powder to the mountains of Hokkaido, leaving as much as 600 inches in a very good year. The resorts around Niseko are the sweet spot, but nearby are quieter locales like Kiroro that also benefit from the nearly 50 feet of snow that piles up throughout the winter. I went in January, the month in-theknow powder fanatics focus on, when snowfall seems virtually constant. So many fellow skiers have caught the January Japan fever that the terms “JaPow” and “Japanuary” have entered skiers’ slang. Getting to Hokkaido is relatively easy, with a f light to Tokyo followed by a four-hour ride in the Shinkansen, or bullet train, north to the Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto. I loved that train, but on the return I chose to f ly to Tokyo from Sapporo, site of the 1972 Winter Olympics Games and close to the slopes.

o wonder The Great Gatsby was the inspiration for a recent dinner party—no one in literary history hosted a better bash than Jay Gatsby, Fitzgerald’s timeless symbol of aff luence, charm and hope. The fete’s setting? The majestic Glenmere Mansion, which just happens to be the site of several Garmany photoshoots. Now, in The Art of Entertaining (published by Rizzoli New York), Jessica Kerwin Jenkins is walking you through the event, thrown by owners Dan DeSimone and Alan Stenberg. From the elaborate decorations in the library to the culinary delights served by Executive Chef Gunnar Thompson, see every Gatsby-esque element—and get inspired to create your very own theme party.

The Glenmere Mansion—part of the Relais & Chateaux collection of boutique hotels—specially decorated its private China Room for the Gatsby-themed dinner. Twelve guests dressed to the nines gathered and conversed around the room’s centerpiece, a dark mahogany table.

Opposite: Brilliant white orchids, a soaring chandelier and two towering candelabras illuminate the China Room. The china and other treasures, from the plates on display to the sterling salt-and-pepper shakers, are part of the Glenmere owners’ collection.

This page: The menu boasted imaginative dishes like medallions of venison with sauce poivrade and chestnut potatoes. To avoid toughness, the backstrap cut of venison should be cooked no more than medium rare, says executive chef Gunnar Thompson. Opposite, clockwise from top left: Seafood lovers dined on Lobster Americaine, which features a sauce made with brandy and cream; the mansion’s Glenmere Gatsby martini was a salute to the Roaring Twenties; the broiled salmon with tarragon carrots featured a light hollandaise sauce; each guest was given a personalized space at the table.
