The LURE of LEATHER

garmany guide }

Among Garmany’s most popular outerwear brands is the Italian maker known as Gimo’s. Renzo Girardin

Winking at women’s fashion You can’t see it in the picture here, but the image on the cover of Avedon Fashion 1944–2000 is printed holographically, so the model literally appears to wink at you as you walk by. This irresistible come-on is just a hint of the visual pleasures within. The lush new book chronicles the work of Richard Avedon, the most influential fashion photographer of all time. Beginning in the late 1940s, Avedon bucked the convention of stiff, motionless poses by encouraging his models to move and express themselves. He also forged such intense connections with his subjects that he often left photo shoots embarrassed by the personal details they revealed to him. From Audrey Hepburn to Veruschka to Kate Moss, the book covers all of Avedon’s most iconic fashion models and images.

founded Gimo’s in 1968 as an atelier specializing in leather garments of the highest quality. Based north of Venice in San Martino di Lupari, Gimo’s has remained faithful to traditional Italian methods of producing leather goods. But from the very start, the label also has been propelled by fashion. Each season, Gimo’s designers produce dynamic new collections. A Gimo’s leather jacket is sophisticated, sexy and contemporary— like the man who wears it.

Skullduggery’s afoot Old-world craftsmanship meets rocker attitude in the men’s jewelry of Scott Kay. His handmade cufflinks, bracelets, pendants, key chains and other items have become a favorite gift of wives and girlfriends to their men. Especially popular with Garmany customers are the designs featuring inlaid stones, such as lapis, and human skulls—some of which are shown here. Scott introduces new lines every season. Look for his latest creations at Garmany in time for holiday giving. FA L L

Upcoming acts at Count Basie Restored to splendor, the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank features an excellent concert series. Here are some

Classic meets hip at LANVIN

upcoming shows that appeal to our musical tastes—as well as to our sense of THE CRANBERRIES

LANVIN, THE OLDEST FRENCH fashion house still in

operation, began as a children’s custom clothes shop in the late 19th century. Founder Jeanne Lanvin soon branched into women’s wear and, in the 1920s, menswear. Some Frenchmen have been buying their wardrobes at Lanvin for decades. And thanks to the wizardry of designer Lucas Ossendrijver, the next generation of young men are getting hooked on the “new Lanvin” for casual staples, such as t-shirts. Garmany is pleased to represent both sides of this famous label: the classic and the fashion forward. This season, for instance, we’re carrying a traditional black chesterfield coat with velvet collar, and we’re also stocking Lanvin jeans and highly sought-after sneakers, which have a near-cult following abroad. You could say Lanvin sportswear represents relaxed luxury. With soft silhouettes and a muted palette, these clothes are at once tasteful, comfortable, elegant and up to date.

ALL-ACCESS PASS:

the trunk show Trunk shows are a vestige of the early days of apparel retailing, when manufacturers’ representatives would visit stores with trunks full of the latest fashions, and store owners would choose the items that best suited their customers. Nowadays, we go straight to designers’ showrooms in Milan, Naples, New York and elsewhere to select merchandise for each season. But the trunk show lives on—giving you the opportunity to see and purchase items from a designer’s entire line. Here are some of the trunk shows coming up at Garmany. 26

Threads of genius

Sigmund Eisner made Red Bank a major center for the manufacture of clothing. The building that housed his main factory is now the Galleria.

LONG BEFORE RED BANK became the retail clothing destination it is today, it was a clothing manufacturing center. A young immigrant named Sigmund Eisner began tailoring clothes as an in-home business. As demand grew, Eisner opened a factory on Bridge Avenue and began specializing in uniform production; factories in Long Branch, Freehold and South Amboy followed. The Sigmund Eisner Company was the exclusive manufacturer of uniforms for the Boy Scouts of America and, thanks to contracts with the U.S. Army and several foreign governments, it became the largest uniform maker in the country. During World War I, Eisner employed 5,000 people. After Eisner’s death, his family sold the factory on Bridge Avenue, which now houses the Red Bank Galleria retail complex. The Eisner family home on West Front Street was deeded to the borough for use as the Red Bank Public Library. Today the sign above the entrance reads “Eisner Memorial,” in honor of a Red Bank resident who turned a dream into a global clothing business. By the way, Eisner’s great-grandson is Michael Eisner, who ran another global enterprise: The Walt Disney Company.

The big gift: statement jewelry from Tiffany Tiffany & Co. in Red Bank is doing a brisk traffic in what you might call everyday items: sterling silver accessories and the new Tiffany Keys collection, for example. But the Broad Street branch of the famous jeweler is also headquarters for what made it famous in the first place: major pieces of unique design, set perfectly to capture the essence of a showcase gemstone. A case in point are these exquisite green tourmaline and diamond earrings. Tiffany stonecutters use an oval shape and intricate faceting to maximize the color saturation of the tourmalines. An unusual pavé diamond setting forms a point at the back, creating a fascinating view from any angle.

FOUR-STAR FEASTS:

RESTAURANT NICHOLAS

Defining your PERFECT SHIRT Little details are important to you—no use denying it—so you’ll be glad to know that Garmany now makes custom shirts for men. A custom shirt is all about the details. Consider the matter of fit. Ready-made shirts are sized by collar (to the half inch) and sleeve length. Our custom shirts are sized by chest, waist, hips, yoke, tail length, waist length, right sleeve length, left sleeve length, right cuff size, left cuff size, exact collar size, back collar height and front collar height. Do all of these individualized measurements matter? Yes, and you’ll instantly appreciate the difference in appearance and comfort when you try on your first custom shirt. Has your shirt ever risen from your trouser waistband, coming un-tucked or ballooning around your waist? If you’re not wearing custom, then you don’t even need to answer, because we know the answer is yes! And we guarantee that will never happen again. Besides a superior fit, you’ll enjoy shirts that are bespoke in every way. You’ll choose color, pattern and fabric from literally hundreds of options. You’ll choose collar style, size and height; cuff style, size and button options; pocket style (one, two or no pockets) and shape; monogram style, color and placement. And your shirt will be made with utterly fastidious attention to quality, which means it will last, which makes it a good

Chef Nicholas Harary, owner of Restaurant Nicholas, is surely a Red Bank celebrity—and, in the food world, a national one as well. Hungry patrons travel from all over to sample the cuisine that has earned this nine-year-old eatery its four-star New York Times rating. Yet Harary hasn’t let success go to his head. A precocious perfectionist who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America at age 19, he can still be found toiling in the kitchen nearly seven nights a week, while wife and general manager Melissa manages the dining room with grace and charm. From the beginning, Harary has adhered to a menu formula that is deceptively simple. Guests choose from prix-fixe options of three, four or six courses—yet the food itself is anything but ordinary. An emphasis on seasonal cuisine means all ingredients burst with fresh flavor. If you’re visiting Restaurant Nicholas in the coming weeks, you might try the following selections, paired with your favorite wine. The cellar is extensive, befitting a chef who’s also a world-class oenophile. APPETIZER: Pumpkin agnolotti, sage brown butter, pumpkin seeds ENTRÉE: Rack of veal chop, rutabaga gratin, fig and fennel chutney, sauteed spinach DESSERT: Vanilla bean cheesecake with spiced figs, graham cracker tuille

value. Give Garmany custom a try, and you’ll never look back.

Wrap yourself in

WARMTH NOTHING IS QUITE so flattering to

a woman as fur—or so warming when the temperature plummets. This is the rare year when both the Farmers’ Almanac and meteorologists concur: It’s going to be a long, cold winter. So why not consider a new fur in exactly your taste? We stock everything from lightweight reversible fur jackets to full-length mink coats, all designed to couturier standards. Oh, and we don’t leave the guys out in the cold: We also carry Italian shearling coats for men. If you haven’t worn one yet, you’ll be impressed by the warmth and comfort.

Yes, Zur!

Buffing up a Red Bank pearl IF YOU THINK OF THE OYSTER POINT HOTEL as the shy little sister of the adjacent Molly Pitcher Inn, you should check out the difference a year has made. Extensive renovations have transformed the Oyster Point into a sleek beauty. The idea was to redo the interiors in the style of a contemporary boutique hotel and “go green” at the same time—all with local resources. Those who worked on the project include Woodward Construction Company of Matawan, Andrew Grossman Upholstery of Belmar, and Space Interiors and The DUX Bed, both of Red Bank. All new furniture at the Oyster Point is made from recycled wood and fabrics. “Now it’s like a chic New York hotel—very modern,” says Kevin Barry, renovations project manager. “But look outside, and it’s still as if you’re on a cruise ship.” He’s referring to what hasn’t changed: the spectacular view of the Navesink from the guest rooms’ picture windows.

Moccasins and drivers are the casual shoes of choice for many of our customers, and Robert Zur is a rising brand. Zur’s shoes blend technical mastery with fresh designs and the best materials—notably true glove leather, used for its superior sheen and buttery touch. The result is a light, comfortable shoe that performs well, endures wear and looks exceptionally stylish.

Our Robert Zur selection includes drivers for women, some of which are shown here.

BEACH READY AT ALL TIMES

Joyeux NOËL! Connoisseurs of French country décor have a secret domestic source in Pierre Deux, which is happily ensconced in Red Bank in the same building as Tiffany & Co., right next to Garmany. Purveyors of all things French country for the home, Pierre Deux makes it easy to add a touch of Gallic charm to your holiday festivities. Consider, for instance, these glass ornaments, reverse painted in the traditional eglomise technique. Sold as a set of three, the ornaments depict—what else?—three French hens.

THE

POP QUIZ 32

FA L L

From Saint-Tropez, where it all began, to Laguna Niguel to Ipanema to Zanzibar, the world’s “professional” beachgoers know Vilebrequin, the colorful French swim trunks made of spinnaker fabric. Now the famous label has expanded to other readyto-wear beach gear, such as sportshirts and jackets, and Garmany’s got the collection. We’re committed to keeping you beach ready, year-round, with Vilebrequin.

Which of the following little surprises is considered in acceptable taste? A) Removing your shirt to reveal rippling pectoral muscles. B) Smiling to reveal 18k-gold dental grills. C) Crossing your legs to reveal brightly patterned socks. The answer, of course, is C. See why on page 48.

Sweat all vegetables with black peppercorns, thyme and bay leaf. Deglaze with red wine and reduce by half. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Pan-sear short ribs on both sides. Add to the liquid and braise for 3½ hours. Serve and enjoy!

The vibrantly distinctive shirts of Robert Graham are so appealing that some men are fanatical collectors. Those who own more than 100 of these shirts are rewarded by the brand with membership in the Robert Graham Collector’s Club. The key benefit: A future shirt design is named in one’s honor. To date, about a dozen Robert Graham shirts have been named after customers, including the Sir Ronald after Ron Baker, the Dono Bruce after Bruce Deluca, and the Penebiango after Carl Penebiango. These bold men seem to share the attitude of designer Robert Stock, who founded the line: “Express yourself without reservation, without explanation, just feeling confident. Enjoy a life well lived. That is my vision for Robert Graham.” Start or add to your collection of Robert Graham shirts by visiting Garmany.

yourself in layers is guaranteed to keep you comfortable and fashion forward. Try a Garmany cashmere sweater or Gimo’s leather jacket layered over a Roberto Cavalli silk tunic for this season’s runway look. Add a Leetal Kalmanson necklace and Sete di Jaipur silk scarf for an elegant finishing touch.

Etro models blazed down the runway in a rainbow of vibrant hues and multicolored prints—neon orange, cobalt blue, purples, teals, cranberries and reds. All of these strong colors are wearable for the holidays, while hot pink is this season’s hue for all skin tones. Try a Ports 1961 drape dress, available in every shade. If you’re wary of too much color, wear a neutral tone and accessorize with an acid-bright handbag by Marc Jacobs.

Escada’s sexy pencil skirt, a slim silhouette looks just right this fall and winter. Pair these

Try Escada’s exploded houndstooth jacket over a strapless or flute-sleeve little black dress from Roberto Cavalli. This dazzling look is perfect for that special night on the town.

Highlight Those Shoulders Whether showing skin or keeping concealed, shoulder emphasis is a trend this season, and it takes two forms. First, there’s the strong-shoulder jacket, an ’80s-inspired style that gives the appearance of great posture and a slimmer waist. We’re not talking Joan-Collins-on-Dynasty shoulders, but a more balanced design that emphasizes the shoulders and waist. Try an Akris suit or fitted dress for this look. Then there’s the asymmetrical style of a one-shoulder evening gown, as done by Badgley Mischka and others, which draws attention to the neckline and face—the better to showcase your favorite necklace and that gorgeous smile! Both styles project confidence and elegance; not to mention, they’re just plain sexy. Pleats, tucks, and strategically placed bows are also helping to make shoulders a focal point this season.

The no-man’sland between pants cuff and shoe deserves your attention

It’s the final sartorial frontier—the nether reach of leg and ankle that segue into a well-shod foot. Most men treat the area as something to be camouflaged, like back-yard pool equipment. But the man of style understands that the bridge between trouser and shoe is something to be celebrated. Because socks are usually hidden, they present an opportunity—in common with the necktie—to go a little wild. When the socks do come into view, there can be a satisfying “Ta-Da!” effect. Shown here: three pairs in fine-gauge Italian cotton, made in Italy by V.K. Nagrani, and two pairs in striped cotton by the British prankster, Paul Smith. They make great stocking stuffers! 48

Geometry lesson The beefy cardigan is back, with 21st century Italian styling

As with any clothing by Etro, there’s a lot going on in this sweater. There are vertical ribs of red with grey stripes, grey with red stripes, and claret. The ribs are aligned so the horizontal stripes don’t match. The result: Deep upright furrows play visually against broken stripes, creating an appearance reminiscent of buffalo plaid—but which no one would ever mistake for plaid. Call it post-modern sweater design with a nod to the past. This perfect holiday cardigan is shown with a grey Etro sportshirt which, like the sweater, rewards close inspection. The body of the shirt mimics basket weave, while collar and cuffs have a maze-like pattern of concentric shapes. The overall effect is like an Escher drawing— playful and fascinating. 60

Yet in his book, You Can Find Inspiration in Everything (*and if you can’t, look again), Smith writes of the job, “The only thing that appealed to me was that it was about four miles from home and I could cycle there and back every day. I had no interest whatsoever in their clothes.” That all changed two years later, following a cycling accident. Unable to see clearly through his narrow, black-framed, Buddy Holly sunglasses while pedaling through Nottingham one afternoon, Smith smashed into a parked Austen A40, flipped over the car and landed on the road.

The traditional rules of Old World tailoring are respected: Every Paul Smith design displays exquisite craftsmanship and strict attention to detail. He often uses Harris tweed or flannel mixed with Scottish Fair Isle patterns to create looks that are quite simple. “An ideal suit is one that is not trying too hard,” explains Smith. “The width of the shoulder would not be too extreme; the proportion of the pockets average.” And yet, out of his chaotic, witty, playful mind there also emerges an element of fancy that infuses every Paul Smith product with subtle yet

Her inspirations include the Wild West, the exoticism of Istanbul, the craftsmanship of the Amish, the light of Paris and the urban rhythm of New York. That’s quite a stylistic melting pot, and it shows in her designs. Consider this jacket. Its heritage is the American motorcycle jacket, but Malandrino interprets the form in an utterly feminine way.

The sentiment has always resonated with Brunello Cucinelli, a latter-day humanist who also happens to make what many regard as the world’s most beautiful cashmere garments.

MAGASCHONI IS FAMOUS for its ruffled cashmere wraps, which are a

particular hit with the Hollywood set. Says Lindsay Lohan, “It’s my favorite wrap—I wear it all the time.” The wrap is remarkably versatile—it helps that Magaschoni does cashmere in 42 colors—but there’s a lot more to this hot women’s label. Magaschoni designers work in a variety of natural fabrics: linen, cotton, silk and wool, as well as cashmere, all made with low-impact, eco-friendly dyes. The collection includes sweaters, jackets, dresses, tops, skirts and pants, often fashioned with oneof-a-kind detailing. Detail, in fact, is a hallmark of the brand. Touches that delight the eye include intricate beading, embroidery, special stitching and fur collars. Inside each garment, attention to detail is evident in the delicate linings and tailored finishes. There is a distinctive Magaschoni look, which you can appreciate from the images on this and the following pages. Clean, sleek

While the emphasis is very much on luxury, everyday functionality and practicality are also key. As Belag Forman explains, the clothes are designed to take a woman “from day into evening, The Magaschoni look is built on texture; soft, draped lines; and charming details, such as ruffles.

And lest you think the label appeals only to striking blondes who haven’t quite reached adulthood, other devotees include Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria and Toni Collette. But the question of the moment is: How will Magaschoni look on you? To know the answer, you must visit Garmany. FA L L

Electric Glide What do you get when you take the body of a LOTUS ELISE and give it a green heart? The TESLA ROADSTER— a PLUG-IN THRILL RIDE that says the future really can BE ELECTRIC!

IT’S NOT JUST GASOLINE and nasty exhaust emissions the

new Tesla Roadster spares the world. As the first highperformance EV (electric vehicle), it also cuts down on noise pollution. That’s because the roar characteristic of sports cars with an internal combustion engine has been tamed to a barely audible purr by the Silicon Valley upstart. For some enthusiasts, the quiet can be disconcerting—a turnoff even—but for the eco-conscious lover of exotic cars, thinking of this debut model from Tesla Motors as the silent, stealthy type can be an automotive aphrodisiac.

Test-driving the Tesla WHEN THE GOOD FOLKS AT VULCAN MOTOR CLUB let me play with their Tesla

Roadster for a day, I learned that the most fun thing about this vehicle, hands down, is the stunning acceleration. Turn the key in the “ignition,” or whatever you call it in an electric car, and a “beep” tells you the motor is on. There’s no engine sound, no vibration. Tap the accelerator ever so gently, and the car eases into motion like a golf cart. You could glide quietly down a parade route at 1 mph. But press down on the pedal, and now you’re Han Solo making the jump to hyper-space. What’s more, the smooth, silent, instantaneous surge of power is available at any speed. Going from 60 to 120 is the same as going from 0 to 60—a thrill that lasts a little less than 4 seconds. Whether on back roads or the highway, I found myself looking for any opportunity to unleash a sudden, massive burst of speed. My Tesla ride was not entirely silent. Besides the hum of the tires and the whistling wind, I heard a creaking spring that begged for adjustment. But I could forgive imperfections in fit and finish. This was, after all, the first generation of a brand new automotive marque. Thanks to its Lotus body, the Tesla Roadster scored big points for looks. Some guy passed me on the highway, honking, smiling and giving a thumbs up. I waved back and then smoked him, unable to resist the pleasure of punching it one more time.

GREEN DAY

Mother Nature’s favorite color has a versatility other hues can only envy

IF YOU DOUBT THE UTILITY OF GREEN, just consider any flower garden or florist’s

window: You’ll see that green really does go with every other color. Green is the ultimate “neutral,” giving other hues—orange, red, yellow, blue, lavender—a lift. The rooms shown on these pages demonstrate not only its versatility, but some of the moods it can create. Soft green lends an air of calm to any indoor space, while a strong, bright green is energizing.

This page: Paul Fortune brought an unending variety of green into this understated workspace, making it a perfect spot for contemplation. The large painting is by Charles Fine.

ESCAPE TO THE

REETHI RAH and COCOA ISLAND offer

two visions of BEACHSIDE PARADISE

MALDIVES THINK DESERT-ISLAND PARADISE, and a variety of tropical images inevitably come to

mind: sandy beaches that are ultra-white and silky under foot, a crystal sea studded with colorful coral reefs, azure skies, perfect palm trees and, of course, quiet seclusion. If one destination matches this mental checklist, it’s the Maldives, an island republic sprawled across 56,000 square miles of the Indian Ocean. The Maldives has the distinction of being the world’s lowest-lying country; its sandy hillocks rarely reach more than a few meters above sea level. That’s because the entire country is a constellation of coral reef atolls. Twenty-six atolls comprise 1,192 small islands, only 202 of which are inhabited. Of these, about 90 are resort islands, and of the 90, perhaps 18 are truly special, the location of some of the most rarefied resorts anywhere.

Perched over water, the villas at Cocoa Island emphasize barefoot luxury. The resort setting is more reef than island, as seen in the photo below; snorkeling and diving are prime activities here. At Reethi Rah (opposite), high ceilings, natural materials and minimalist style distinguish the large villas. Beachside dining—al fresco, of course—is one of several mealtime options.

While the Maldives have had occasional visitors for millennia—they were a stop on ancient Persian and Chinese trade routes—it was only in the mid-1990’s that tourism took off, meaning virtually all of the resorts in the Maldives are quite new. The best of these resorts have a lot in common: Each has luxury villas of unique design. Each has extraordinary coral reefs lying just offshore, a world of rays, triggerfish, clownfish and hawksbill turtles. Each has stellar service and a great spa—because the whole point of a Maldives vacation is to send you home relaxed, recharged and refreshed. It’s why Donna Karan, Sienna Miller, Beyoncé Knowles and Sir Paul McCartney are major fans. But the approach to relaxation varies by resort. Here we present two resorts consistently rated among the best of the best, representing two ends of the relaxation spectrum: One&Only Reethi Rah makes you comfortable with electronic amenities and glamorous surroundings, while Cocoa Island epitomizes the concept of “barefoot luxury.” REETHI RAH One&Only resorts are the top-tier properties of Butch Kerzner, who developed Atlantis in the Bahamas and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. There are just six One&Only resorts worldwide (the best-known to Americans being Palmilla at the tip of the Baja Peninsula), and what they share are sophistication without stuffiness and service that approaches six stars. Reethi Rah, located on North Malé atoll, is no different. The experience begins at the airport, where one of the hotel’s high-speed custom yachts (which doubles as a registration 90

desk) whisks you to the property, one of the few islands in the Maldives that has been expanded, in this case to six times its original size. There are 130 large villas, some set on stilts over the water. The beach villas have outdoor king-sized sun beds set on private infinity pools next to the beach. In a country renowned for its spas, Reethi Rah sets the bar high. An ESPA spa offers 10 treatment rooms and many ayurvedic therapies, not to mention signature treatments like the ESPA Energy Equalizer with Volcanic Hot Stones. There’s a yoga pavilion, women-only areas and multi-day Wellness Journeys, such as the seven-day Holistic Fitness journey. The choice of restaurants at Reethi Rah is superb. Fanditha serves Lebanese cuisine on tables placed on the sand as well as in Arabian-style tents; Tapasake offers Japanese fusion; Reethi Restaurant has an international menu. And the remote location is no barrier to gastronomic excellence. Sushi-grade fish is flown in from Tokyo, free-range lamb from Australia, strawberries from Belgium. Reethi Rah ranks number 17 for food—in the world, mind you—on Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List 2009 of the Best Hotels in the World. COCOA ISLAND Cocoa Island has a deceptive simplicity, not unlike that of its sister Como resort, Parrot Cay, half a world away in the Turks & Caicos. It’s as if the humble but well-located beach shack has

Soaring spaces and opulent design mark the spa at Reethi Rah (left). The resort has no shortage of options for soaking, from swimming pools—seen above is just one of the 40—to spa treatments (right). Known for gourmet fare, both Cocoa Island and Reethi Rah fly in fresh food from the world over. Below, seared tuna from Cocoa’s Asian-influenced menu.

been made over with cool urban chic. Cocoa lies in South Malé atoll, a 35-minute speedboat transfer from the international airport. Hotelier Christina Ong’s philosophy prevails here, so the property remains a simple islet covered with palms, wild sea grapes and hibiscus, encircled by a reef with proverbial gin-clear waters. The resort is small, just 33 rooms, and its architecture unusual. Serpentine wooden walkways lead out to each accommodation, which are set on stilts, with baby sharks and reef fish circling below. There are rooms, suites, loft suites and loft villas, the latter with kitchen and private butler. The Dhoni suites are built to resemble local fishing boats. Surrounded by water, they actually look like floating boats, but they are firmly secured on stilts. Each has a full-length glass wall, giving you a view a sweeping view of the Indian Ocean from your bed. Inside they are airy indeed, with high cathedral ceilings. Bathrooms are huge, with separate shower and tub. But it’s the natural materials that are standouts. There are lots of white fabrics, including Frette sheets. The furnishings are wood and understated, floors are teak, and the overall mood rather Zen-like. Maybe the single biggest reason to choose Cocoa Island is the Shambhala Retreat, widely considered among the best spas in the Maldives. If you’re pining for an Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage or a two-hour Como Shambhala Ritual massage, go for it. After a morning of yoga on the beach, of course. This place has a massive reputation among devotees of yoga, and some of the world’s leading instructors hang out here. Cuisine is a major part of your stay at any Como property, and at the Ufaa restaurant, which is thatched with alang alang grass, you sit on large sofas and cushions. You can expect Indian, Sri Lankan and Thai style cuisine, or you can elect low-fat, organic Como Shambhala cuisine. At Cocoa Island, you can literally snorkel from your room to reef. And if you’ve ever contemplated leaning to dive, these calm waters would be the place to learn.

Same day comprehensive evaluation & biopsy. Genetic counseling and testing and clinical breast exams by nurse practitioner Laurie Jeffers.

You have a 40-60% better chance of surviving breast cancer if it is first detected on mammography, before it can be felt as a lump. Early detection is key. So is finding a dedicated breast imager who only performs mammography, reads 5,000 or more mammograms a year, and performs imaging guided breast biopsies. Our goal at HerSpace is to put women at ease while we pursue the clinical objective of detecting & diagnosing breast cancer at its earliest, most curable stage. It’s our only job.

SKIING 1 MILLION ACRES, B.C. Revelstoke and Kicking Horse are North America’s new frontier of lift-served skiing IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN STUCK in ski traffic on I-70 in Colorado and longed

for a more remote mountain experience, consider heading north to British Columbia—not to the coastal mega-resort of Whistler Blackcomb, where you risk being bummed out by rain at the base, but to the interior of B.C., where you’re guaranteed light powder, freedom from crowds, gorgeous vistas and improved bragging rights when you return home. The two up-and-coming B.C. resorts generating big buzz are Kicking Horse and Revelstoke, and they have a lot in common. Both are hard to get to: Prepare for a long flight and a lengthy (but traffic-free!) mountain drive. And both are big, demanding mountains, like Jackson Hole or Snowbird—family destinations, sure, but also places where hard-core skiers and boarders can really put testosterone levels to the test. This is skiing’s new frontier, remote mountains that were colonized by heli-skiing operations and a handful of über-fit backcountry powder hounds. Now that they’ve opened as resorts, savvy skiers have discovered that the reward for a long road trip is a heli-skiing experience without the peril or expense of a helicopter, amidst jaw-dropping scenery. Start with Kicking Horse, which opened in late 2000. You get there by flying to Calgary and then driving two-and-a-half hours along the TransCanada Highway to the mining and timber town of Golden, B.C. Kicking Horse had humble beginnings as a locals-only area called Whitetooth, accessed via a gravel road and a single-lane bridge, with a log cabin as a day lodge. The lone chairlift carried a few hundred skiers a day.
