garmany guide Classic Cucinelli

Luxe sneaks

Former V magazine art director Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami, a brand consultant for Italian shoemakers, became friends in the mid-1990s, frequenting East Village hotspots and swanky Chelsea nightclubs. Over beers and cocktails, the two talked fashion and potential collaboration on various projects, one being high-quality sneakers. “We didn’t want to wear Converse anymore,” Girolami has said. The friendship turned into a business partnership that gave birth to Common Projects, a footwear company that bridges the gap between sneaker and dress shoe. Each Common Projects sneaker is made using Italian leather, and the only distinguishing marks are 10 numbers gold-stamped on the heel—there are no other designs or logos. (FYI: Those digits, grouped into three sets, represent a style number, European size and color.) Celebrities like Kanye West, Ellen Degeneres and Nick Jonas are fans of the minimalist brand. You can get your pair at Garmany, which carries the expanded lineup of low-tops, high-tops, trainers and slip-on sneakers.

If you’re a cashmere lover—and who isn’t?— you must get to know Brunello Cucinelli. He is the king of the sumptuous fabric, producing some of the world’s finest cashmere clothing. Although the Italian designer is best known for his sweaters, the Cucinelli collection has expanded over the years to include head-to-toe looks. Shirts, vests, trousers, blazers and sportcoats—all featuring the brand’s signature muted color palette, trim-to-the-body tailoring, casual elegance and, of course, sublimely soft fabrics. New to the brand? Let Garmany guide you through the Brunello Cucinelli collection, the pinnacle of Italian luxury.

A focus on sports

| 25

spring/summer 2016

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 more than 100 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.

Kiwi weekend wear

You’ve got your weekday wardrobe covered. That’s relatively easy. Now what about the weekends? Come in and try on some pieces from Rodd & Gunn. The iconic New Zealand sportswear brand (with the cool pointer dog logo) gets its inspiration from nature, using lots of linen, cotton, wool and leather in its designs. The result? Unpretentious, relaxed comfort—classic clothes that are soft and beautifully textured as well as practical and rugged—perfect for getting out and enjoying the great outdoors this spring.

Pants perfected

We hear there are a few men in Monmouth County who don’t yet have Incotex trousers in their closet. If you’re one of them, please do yourself a favor and stop by Garmany 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 five-pocket 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 Garmany to find a hue—or two—that’s right for you.

Johnell Garmany explains how to sail through life without giving offense. A friend invited me to a party I couldn’t attend. Sometime later, when I bumped into her in the grocery aisle, she was sore at me—not because I didn’t show up at the party, but because I never told her I wasn’t coming. Really? — Humbled in Highlands Yes, really. When an invitation says RSVP, you must respond. Accept or decline; don’t say “maybe,” and don’t be silent. And don’t give your answer at the last minute, or you’ll mess up the host’s planning. Stick to your word. The worst mistake of all is to say you’ll attend and then not show. This costs the host money and prevents your spot from being filled by some lonely heart. It may also cost you a friendship.

On the move

They’re packing their bags at Trinity Hall. The all-girls Catholic school will call old Fort Monmouth its new, permanent home beginning in the 2016–17 academic year. Last year, the school purchased a 20,000-square-foot former daycare center and 7.4 acres of property located along Hope Road at the former military base in Tinton Falls. Trinity paid the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority approximately $2 million for the site, and about $500,000 in renovations are anticipated to bring the building up to speed for the first day of school. Trinity Hall, which opened in September 2013, is currently located at a temporary site in Croydon Hall on Leonardville Road in Leonardo. The school teaches in the Catholic tradition but is independent of a parish. For more information, contact Trinity Hall at 732.291.1297 or

the art of crafts If you order a beer in any respectable bar in America, the malted beverage you’re offered will likely have a name like “Mephistopheles Stout” or “Dead Guy Ale.” Chances are good it will have been brewed not in big steel vats in St. Louis but in small batches two towns over. Freestyle American craft beers made by small, independently owned breweries are the rage all across the U.S. You already know the fab four, but here are some obscure facts about each that you might not know: Lager Whoever coined the phrase “pop open a cold one” was probably drinking a lager, a name derived from the German word “lagern” meaning “to store.” Lagers are both processed and stored at low temperatures before they’re sold. Try Sierra Nevada’s Nooner Pilsner—chilled, of course. Pale Ale Something borrowed, something brewed. One of the most popular craft beer varieties in the U.S. today, pales actually date back to early1700s England. Back then, malts were roasted with coke (the fuel derived from coal, not the beverage). For a great American pale ale, pop open a Deschutes Brewery’s Mirror Pond Pale Ale. Amber Call it the pursuit of hoppiness. Once synonymous with pale ale, amber made the jump to the next level when brewers in the early 1900s began to add more hops, a flowery and flavorful preservative, to their recipes. For a burst of flavor, be sure to try Tröegs Nugget Nectar. Stout You may feel full with this heavy brew, but you’re not drinking a day’s worth of calories. The average stout contains just one more calorie per ounce than most mainstream light beers. So go ahead and have another. Give Firestone Walker Brewing’s Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout a try.

the garmany guide Sophia Webster style

Want to add some flair to your lower half this season? Slip on a pair of shoes by British designer Sophia Webster. A former assistant to celebrated shoemaker Nicholas Kirkwood, Webster launched her own brand in 2012 and today is considered one of the industry’s rising stars. You’ll definitely make a statement in Sophia Webster, whose in-your-face footwear is a riot of color and quirky design elements: pink flamingo pumps, butterfly flats, palm tree platforms, oceanprint espadrilles. You get the idea. Think you’re ready? Come in to Garmany and let us show you how to pull off this fashion-forward look.

The looks of love

Lather up!

The social circuit

| garmany

If you’ve overslept and you’re running late, the electric razor you received for the holidays will come in handy. But for the closest, most comfortable trim, you have to journey back to your grandfather’s day and experience a wet shave. You’ve probably seen it done on film—remember Robert DeNiro in The Untouchables? A barber lathers up your face and uses a straight razor or safety razor to trim your whiskers. Then comes a splash of cool water and aftershave to soothe the pores. There’s an art to the process and steps to follow to achieve the perfect wet shave. With any project, proper prep is important. Wash your face with warm water and soap meant for the face (body washes might leave your skin too dry, making a good shave difficult). For the next step, skip the Barbasol and lather up with a fine shaving cream applied with a brush. You can pick up Castle Forbes shaving products right here at Garmany, along with a handmade Rooney Stubby 2 brush. Despite what you see on TV, you don’t need a six-blade, vibrating razor—one blade is all you need. As long as it’s sharp, a single blade gives the closest shave and reduces the amount of irritation. Opt for the safety razor, which has a double-edge disposable blade. Only after you’ve honed your skills with the safety razor should you consider giving the straight razor—also known, gulp, as a “cutthroat”—a try. Shave with the grain first, then pass the razor across the grain. Finally, pass against the grain if your skin isn’t too sensitive. Once you’re whisker-free, enjoy a cool rinse and some aftershave. Then stand back and admire the results. Once you go wet, you’ll have a hard time going back to dry.

From top to bottom: Johnell Garmany gets ready for his wet shave; the Garmany guys recently held a shave-off to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; Enzo, left, from Hudson & Canal in Red Bank, gets to work.

Look good, feel good and do good this spring and summer by attending events that benefit the local community. Here’s a list of some of our favorites taking place in Monmouth County. And don’t forget to stop by Garmany to help you find the perfect outfit. April 16: The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care’s 10th annual Beauty Ball will take place at the Robert Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. For more info, visit April 24: The Spring Tea Fundraiser and Auction benefiting the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation comes to Elks Lodge No. 2151 in Brick. Head to emmanuelcancer .org to learn more. July 16 The LOL: Laugh Out Loud Comedy Show, which raises funds for a nonprofit group dedicated to ending domestic violence, takes place at the Two River Theatre in Red Bank. Find out the details at September 18 Big Steps for Little Feet, an annual walk benefiting Monmouth Medical Center’s Hirair and Anna Hovnanian Foundation Regional Newborn Center, starts in Long Branch. For information and registration, call 732.923.6886.

We know that fashion photography sells a look, but it’s also an art that tells a story. Hal Rubenstein shares many of those stories in The Looks of Love: 50 Moments in Fashion That Inspired Romance (Harper Collins, $40), a collection of the most powerful and romantic moments in fashion history, from the 1930s to today. A founding editor of InStyle magazine, Rubenstein showcases pivotal events in television and film, on the runway and the red carpet, and in social media that have changed the way we see love, fashion, passion, romance, marriage and beauty. Who can forget those catfights between shoulder pad–clad Krystle and Alexis Carrington on Dynasty, Gene Kelly’s classic sportswear in Singing in the Rain and Angelina Jolie’s Versace wedding veil embroidered with her children’s drawings? Those images and more (a total of 225 full-color and black-and-white photographs), as well as insight from the designers, are all found on the pages of this gorgeous tome. Rubenstein’s selections perfectly illustrate the role that clothes play in the world of love and passion. It’s truly a collection for all—for the fashionista, the photographer and the romantic.

the garmany guide Be an insider

During the 1970s, designer Yves Chareton envisioned a shop filled with clothing treasures found at a vintage Parisian market— faded plaid button-downs, shirts in raw denim and work shirts in chambray. These classics were the inspiration behind Hartford, the French label Chareton launched in 1979. The mix of traditional European style with a more relaxed American aesthetic gained a cult following— aficionados included Bruce Springsteen and many of The Boss’ followers. Today, Hartford maintains its “insider” status and is a brilliant off-the-radar choice for stylish, easy-to-wear basics. Think linen shirts and shorts, lightweight sweaters and cotton twill trousers in a rainbow of colors. Not wearing Hartford yet? Stop by the store and browse our extensive collection of Hartford apparel waiting for you to try on and take home.

A taste of Red Bank

From rustic Italian to classic American, small plates to gastropub innovation, the Red Bank restaurant scene continues to generate culinary buzz. Here’s a trio we know you’ll want to try. B2 Bistro & Bar—Fresh, locally sourced ingredients are transformed into inventive apps and entrees at this attitude-free establishment. A wood-burning oven turns out many of the meals and serves as a gathering spot where guests can enjoy the culinary theater created by the chef. Via45—Whether you are on a diet full of restrictions or can enjoy a plate full of anything, this Italian eatery offers a world of possibilities since meals are made to order. The menu is hand-written for a reason—it changes not by season, but by day. Birravino—Basil T’s has been replaced with this brewery-meets-trattoria restaurant. A cold brew or vino? Choose from a large selection of house beers and fine wines to pair with rustic Italian fare.

The ride of your life

Elliptical, treadmill, free weights. Let’s face it: Your gym routine needs a new spin. And you can try it—spinning, that is—at Mega Cycle in Shrewsbury. Indoor cycling (spinning) has a reputation for being intense, and it can be intimidating. But the instructors at Mega Cycle will make you feel comfortable no matter what your fitness level. “We have regular riders in their 20s through 60s with a wide variety of athletic abilities,” says Megan Gridley, owner of Mega Cycle. “Our classes appeal to beginners, hard-core cyclists and everyone in between.” Want to mix up your workout even more? You can try Pilates, yoga and TRX suspension training at Mega Cycle too. So get moving! Mega Cycle, 89 Newman Springs Rd., Shrewsbury, 732.933.3880; the

Better bags

32 32

Samuel Bail and Abel Samet gave up promising careers in finance when they hit the road for an 18-month journey across Europe. It’s not an uncommon tale for guys in their mid-20s, but this duo’s trek was no ordinary trip. Their mission: Find the best materials, talent and techniques to help them create the highestquality leather travel bags and luggage. Along the way, they discovered family-owned tanneries and encountered renowned zipper makers. Eventually, after several failed attempts, Bail and Samet located a manufacturer to put everything together, and the partnership laid the foundation for Troubadour. Since 2013 Troubadour has been producing luxury Italian leather goods for high-end retailers like Garmany. All Troubadour bags are made of superior vegetable-tanned leather, which is left unfinished to allow for graceful, natural aging. The hardware is understated and nothing is overdesigned, meaning each bag could transition seamlessly from situation to situation—bring it to the office, then use it to shuffle off to the gym. Before you pack for your next getaway, check out Troubadour at Garmany.

Cancer care closer to home

We’re already fortunate to live in an area with superior health care, and soon the best cancer treatment will be coming closer to home. Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) brings its renowned expertise to Monmouth County, opening a state-of-the-art outpatient facility in Middletown later this year. The 285,000-square-foot center, to be located at the former Lucent Technologies site, will give patients access to personalized medicine, cutting-edge clinical trials, cancer care and support groups all under one roof. “This provides the opportunity for patients to receive all of their post-operative care close to their home,” says Richard Barakat, M.D., deputy physician-in-chief for Memorial Sloan Kettering Regional Care Network and MSK Cancer Alliance, noting that about 6 percent of MSK’s patients live in the area served by the new facility. With the opening of the Middletown campus, Memorial Sloan Kettering will have two offices in New Jersey (a location in Basking Ridge opened in 2006). A third satellite facility is scheduled to open in 2017 in Montvale. To find out more about MSK’s plans for Monmouth County, email

It’s show time!

Here’s what’s on the agenda this season: Pericles, April 16–May 8— Director David Schweizer brings to life William Shakespeare’s thrilling tale of adventure, shipwreck and romance. I Remember Mama, June 4–26—See how Jack Cummings III directs 10 actresses to play 25 roles in this rebirth of an American classic about a working-class Norwegian family living in turn-ofthe-century San Francisco. Where the Wild Things Are, June 9–12—Kim Selody directs this “guided play” experience for children and adults, who will be given masks and transform into wild things.

Garmany greets Hollywood

Garmany recently gave its clients a dream lineup: author Maria Cooper Janis, J Brand, Baz Persaud—and Oscar! The daughter of silver screen royal Gary Cooper, Janis stopped by the Red Bank store for an exclusive appearance and signing of her book Gary Cooper: Enduring Style. She also brought along her father’s Academy Award, which he won for best actor in 1953 for his portrayal of Will Kane in High Noon. Autographed copies of the book are available for purchase at Garmany. Trunk shows with denim specialist J Brand and jewelry designer Baz Persaud (who has a way with cuff links) gave guests an up close and personal look at the two brands.

genre benders


Reinterpreting traditional styles and borrowing freely from the past, these artists are making music that sounds bang up to date. By Mark Dowden

Carrie Rodriguez

Raised to play classical violin, Texas native Carrie Rodriguez used to have no interest in singing. That changed some years ago, and the 37-year-old went on to success as a singer-songwriter of roots music. She finds full voice on the new album Lola, which contains half a dozen original songs, plus five Mexican folk tunes of the genre known as ranchera. Among these is “Perfidia,” which was a pop hit for dozens of American artists in the 1940s and ’50s. Her version, sung in Spanish, is the perfect update. The album: Lola Go-to song: “Perfidia.” Love that steel guitar. Deeper dives: “Llano Es-

Just as there was no performing artist named Marshall Tucker (or Lynyrd Skynyrd for that matter), the band Dawes has no member of that name. Their debut album brought them instant notice for reviving the Laurel Canyon sound of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and Crosby, Stills & Nash. But Dawes front man Taylor Goldsmith says he and his mates had no such goal. Rings true, as Dawes’ chill stylings are unstudied, uncommercial and fresh. The album: All Your Favorite Bands Go-to song: the title track, with Goldsmith’s perfect lyrics Deeper dives: “To Be Completely Honest” and “Now That It’s Too Late, Maria”

tacado,” a Spanglish-inflected track from Lola, and “Whiskey Runs Thicker Than Blood” from the album Give Me All You Got

Nathaniel Rateliff

Growing up in rural Missouri, Nathaniel Rateliff taught himself guitar and began to write songs as a teenager. He earned critical praise for early albums and toured with Dr. Dog and The Lumineers in 2013, but it wasn’t until 2015 that he broke out with the self-titled album, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. The infectious, rollicking single “S.O.B.” was conceived by Rateliff as a kind of call-andresponse tune in the Gospel tradition, but its narrator seems more at home in a dive bar than a church choir. The album: Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats Go-to song: “S.O.B.” Like the man says, give me a drink! Deeper dives: “Howling at Nothing” and “Look It Here”

Catherine Russell A member of David Bowie’s band, Catherine Russell pitched in on guitar, keyboards, percussion and background vocals. After Bowie stopped touring in 2004, Russell concentrated on a solo career as a jazz and blues singer. She has consistently delivered a new album every two years, and does an especially fine job of reviving old standards. That’s her singing “Crazy Blues” on the soundtrack of Boardwalk Empire. On her latest album, Russell goes large with a swinging 10-piece band. The album: Bring It Back Go-to song: “Aged and Mellow” Deeper dives: “Lucille,” written by

her father, who was Louis Armstrong’s music director, and “After the Lights Go Down”

times the mood calls for Billie Holiday or Bach, but when I have a high-energy crowd and want to encourage dancing, I go for the musical equivalent of Tabasco.

of men’s style which Johnell Garmany solves your sartorial dilemmas.

It’s time for a new jacket for spring. What do you recommend? We have a few really stunning jacket options. Isaia makes a silk-cashmere jacket that is very light and elegant. The blended fabric gives a nice luster to the piece, and it’s amazing to the touch. For spending time outdoors— at sporting events or on a boat— I’d recommend a classic Moncler windbreaker. Bomber jackets and bomber-length jackets are also in style; we have an amazing option by Brunello Cucinelli. The best part about a bomber is its versatility—you can dress it down by pairing it with jeans and a sport shirt or dress it up with a pair of trousers. It’s a great investment.

| garmany

I dread wearing suits to work during the summer. Any suggestions? Two words: tropical wool. It’s lightweight, very breathable and doesn’t hold wrinkles like cotton or linen. When you’re walking around outside, take off the jacket and drape it over your shoulder. You’ll look cool and feel

cool. And remember, you don’t have to wear socks during the summer. We sell noshow peds so that you pull off the sockless look comfortably. Speaking of looking cool, how can I spice up my sportcoat collection? You’ll definitely stand out in a sportcoat with patch pockets. You can wear it to the office, and for a night on the town it’s nice to dandy things up a bit. The combination of red and blue in sportcoats is also very big now. My wife says I look sloppy when I wear T-shirts during the summer. But they’re so comfortable. Help! T-shirts are OK to wear in the summer, and there’s no need for them to be fitted or tucked in during the warmer months. Or you can wear short-sleeve woven shirts— they’ll keep you cool and comfortable when it’s hot. I’m bored with chinos. What are some other options for weekends? How about a pair of colorful five-pocket pants or linen-cotton blend pants? It’s a terrific casual yet sophisticated look. Check out our selections from Incotex and PT01.

What about casual shoes? I find myself always reaching for sneakers. We have a fantastic line of upscale sneakers by Common Projects—low-tops and trainers made of super-soft leather. You get the comfort of a sneaker, but they’re much more refined and sophisticated. I love them and wear them all the time. For a dressier look, we have Magnanni, which is a classic shoe at a lower price point. I like to say they look Italian, but they’re made in Spain. I feel like my wardrobe is too “neutral.” Suggestions? Spring is the perfect time to experiment with color. Refreshing colors like lime green, melon, coral and blue are big this season. Designers such as Canali are offering sportcoats with a pop of color. If you don’t want to be too bold, you can pair a colorful sportcoat with a more subtle shirt to balance the overall look. And don’t forget about patterns. This season guys are having fun with patterns— checks and plaids and windowpanes. Don’t be afraid to try something new!

the look

for spring and summer Styles range from sweet to sexy.

Embrace denim on denim

Designers have reworked our favorite fabric into structured two-piece sets, wide-leg one-alls, and that’s not all: Patchwork, acid wash and the revival of the Canadian Tuxedo are giving denim a brand-new purpose in our wardrobe. Pair a cropped jean jacket with a matching mini skirt à la Thakoon, or slip on a casual-sexy denim dress from J Brand.

Step out in the grownup flat

The perfect balance of sexy and sophisticated is what makes bare shoulders a cult favorite—and this season they’re back in full force. For a fun, carefree vibe, give your shoulders the spotlight in Rebecca Taylor’s boho chic floral dresses. Or if you prefer something simple, flash your clavicles in one of Tanya Taylor’s relaxed, breezy tops paired with a flowing skirt or skinny jeans. Tip: Dust your collarbones with bronzing powder for a subtle finishing touch.

You’ll fall in love with the muted colors (just shy of full-on pastel) and whisper-light weaves that turn this season’s knits into an easy, elegant blend of style and comfort. Fabiana Filippi layers its signature sumptuous knits over silky tops. And guess what’s back in style? Crochet, which has gotten a trendy twist, à la Rebecca Taylor, whose peek-aboo weaved crop top is the season’s must-have.

| garmany

All height, no incline: The flatform (a cross between a flat and a wedge) made its debut five years ago, and its resurgence on the spring runways every season since proves it’s here to stay. Not surprising, since it gives us the height we crave without the discomfort of heels. For your consideration: Stuart Weitzman’s pewter pair—it acts as a neutral (ideal with a power print), while winning nods from fashionistas for its reflective finish. Risk takers need look no further than Sophia Webster: Her metallic version—embellished with gemstones on steroids—teams nicely with slouchy boyfriend jeans and a plain white T-shirt. If flatforms aren’t already your preferred footwear for spring, they will be.

THEOCHARIDES of Beginnings Aesthetic & Laser is at the forefront of ThermiRF®, a groundbreaking non-surgical technology for tightening loose, sagging skin and reducing cellulite with radio frequency generated heat that penetrates the layers of the dermis to promote collagen production. The beauty of ThermiRF® is that it can be used on parts of the face and body that once could not be tightened— with zero downtime! The technology is long lasting, has little or no discomfort and the process activates a natural healing response without damaging tissue. Dr. Theocharides’ office was one of 10 in the country to conduct a now completed study with ThermiVa®, one of the ThermiRF® technology treatments used for vaginal rejuvenation. Women with vaginal looseness, sexual dysfunction,

dryness and urinary leakage from birthing or aging experienced extraordinary results with this procedure, and it is now available for you! In addition Dr. Theocharides was one of a handful of qualified cosmetic physicians around the country who participated in the now ThermiSmooth250™ clinical study for cellulite reduction (now FDA approved). Through a series of four short, pain-free treatments, patients typically experience a tightening of the skin and subsequent shrinkage of the treated area. ThermiSmooth250™ effectively targets leg and buttock cellulite and abdominal fatty deposits to help patients achieve smoother looking skin that gradually tightens over time. For those who have had little success reducing through diet and exercise, ThermiSmooth250™ can be the perfect, nonsurgical solution!

Great dame On stage and screen, actress Helen Mirren has been a trailblazing force for decades. No wonder we’re wowed by everything she does—or wears. By Lydia Keaton


each time. She’ll turn up in a leather jacket and funky gown, or go conventional—diamonds and beaded gowns with plunging necklines. No stranger to haute couture, she’s worn garments by Badgley Mischka, Elie Saab and Escada. Mirren can be playful. She went for shock and awe in 1997 by donning a feathered hat she called her “bird’s nest” to pick up her Golden Globe for Losing Chase—and again a few years later when she dyed her hair pink. And she’s been spotted on the New York subway in a fluffy grey coat and long purple gloves. Crimson lipstick is one fashion choice; another is the Native American tattoo on her left hand, a symbol meaning “equal but opposite.” And Mirren has allowed unretouched photos at her age because, well, it’s OK to be real. Her secret? Knowing what rocks her body and being comfortable in her skin. It’s fitting that in 2003 the actual Queen Elizabeth officially made her a dame. Indeed, there’s nothing like her.

Clockwise from top left: Actress Helen Mirren sports shimmering Chopard pearls at the Royal Opera House for the 2007 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. She’s a sweet, sassy ingenue afloat in 1969. Forty years later she’s clad in white at the U.K. premiere of the political thriller State of Play , in which she played a savvy newspaper editor. In 1979 she appears in a corset to promote the film Caligula. That film, she told an interviewer, was the only one in which having to do a nude scene didn’t frighten her. “Everyone was naked in that,” she said.

all any other actress “show business royalty” and it’s a dazzling compliment. Say that about Britain’s Helen Mirren, 70, and it’s like “of course!” She’s played queens on screen six times, and she’s the only actress to have won awards for portraying both Elizabeths—the Virgin Queen of Shakespeare’s time (in TV’s Elizabeth I) and the long-serving monarch of today (in the 2006 film The Queen). Born Helen Lydia Mironoff in London, Mirren has the kind of talent that makes any role a crowning achievement. But in private life she’s more quirky than queenly. On one movie set, she says herself, she was “a pain in the ass.” She’s admitted to past cocaine use and to a fondness for going to nude beaches. When she does wear clothes, though, people notice. We’re talking confident here—and unpredictable. Mirren wore the same elegant black floral Dolce & Gabbana midi dress on five separate red-carpet occasions, making a splash

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


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

the cat’s meow

Think you know Jaguar? It’s time to re-think. The F-type S two-seater combines classic inspiration with a sassy new spirit. And in 2016 it comes in a 6-speed manual transmission, delighting those who still prize the art of driving.


hen Ian Callum was a kid in Scotland, he wrote to Jaguar seeking tips on becoming a car designer and got a reply advising him to study technical drawing. It took a few decades and a few other automotive stops along the way, but today he is Jag’s chief designer. This elegantly sculpted two-seater shows that he hasn’t forgotten the brand’s sporty tradition.

The ’16 is the first Jag sports car to use electric powerassisted steering (EPAS), controversial with driving purists. Company engineers believe it now outshines the hydraulic alternative (for example, it can be programmed to adapt to different ambient temperatures) without compromising that sports car feel.

The 3.0-liter engine boasts 380 horsepower at 6,500 rpm; it takes just 5.1 seconds to get from 0 to 60. And when you’re toodling to the gym, won’t it be secret fun to know that if the laws allowed, you could be getting there at 171 mph?

There’s driver-selectable “active sport exhaust” with center-mounted dual exhaust pipes, just in case there’s any question about this beast’s authority on the road. Vr-rooom!

Customers used to pay extra for configurable dynamic controls (such as interior lighting with five color choices) and 14-way power seats, but this year they’re standard on the F-type S.

This year’s F-type features an upgraded “infotainment” system and an app that lets you simply tap your smartphone to operate locks, windows, remote start, climate control—and a beep-and-flash in case you’ve forgotten where you parked your Jag.

The S is impeccably dressed— right down to the floor with 19-inch Propeller alloy wheels. And thanks to the Jaguar highperformance braking system with black calipers, these wheels can stop almost on a shilling. A recent test put the 70 mph-to-zero braking space at less than 150 feet, competitive with the industry’s best.

in search of shanghai

Yes, it’s the top metropolis in the world’s busiest land. Did you know it also sparkles with history, culture, shopping and nightlife? By Everett Potter


| garmany

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

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

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


| garmany

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.

here’s one drink with an eponymous anthem all its own: tequila. Recorded by the Champs in 1958—a time when this liquor was barely available in the U.S.—the sax-driven instrumental with the random yelps of “tequila!” seeped into brain cells as powerfully as a stiff drink. Back then Jose Cuervo was just about the only brand known. How things have changed!

Tequila Ley .925 Ultra Premium Extra Añejo Pasión Azteca It’s the bottle, not the tequila inside, that drives the price of Ley .925. The Diamond Sterling Bottle (or La Ley del Diamante), which boasts 4,000 diamonds set in a five-pound platinum bottle designed by Mexican artist Fernando Altamirano, fetches $3.5 million. A more reasonable option offered by the distiller, Hacienda La Capilla: the $225,000 version pictured, which is handcrafted in gold and pure platinum. Only 33 bottles were made, and each comes encased in a leather box with a series of pictures of the original Pasión Azteca by Mexican painter Alejandro Gomez Oropeza.

Gran Patrón Platinum Silver Tequila Among the producer’s higher-end offerings, triple-distilled and aged in oak to become both smooth and full-bodied, this is a remarkably citrus-tinged drink, with bursts of fresh agave and black pepper. Each bottle is crafted from crystal and hand-numbered, cradled in an elegant black case. It is a sultry sipping tequila priced at $195.

spring/summer 2016

Partida Elegante Extra Añejo Gran Reserva The top of Partida’s line, priced at $350 a bottle and limited in production, Elegante is aged a minimum of 40 months in American oak. Complex and velvety, it combines brooding layers of black pepper, toasted oak and dark chocolate around a persistence of almond, caramel, vanilla and coffee. It even suggests the undeniable goodness of maple butter and bourbon. Handcrafted, with each bottle numbered, it comes with a crystal decanter stopper and a sterling silver charm (called the Partida Tequila Spirit Bird) around the bottle’s neck. It makes an impressive gift.

Now there’s no drink that’s hotter; nearly 14 million cases of tequila were sold nationally in 2014, and sales keep climbing at an average yearly rate of 5.6 percent. Some of that growth has been powered by the priciest bottles—pure artisanal versions with price tags upwards of $300. Tequila is made from agave azul tequilana Weber, or blue agave, a Mexican plant with ties to the lily family that can take from eight to 10

years to mature. (Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from more than 30 varieties of agave, including blue agave.) Just as bubbly must come from the Champagne region of France to officially be called Champagne, tequila must be produced in specific areas of Mexico. The spiky succulent is grown primarily in Jalisco, but the official tequila region extends into parts of four adjoining states. To make tequila, the pineapple-shaped piñas (hearts) of the agave plant are harvested by hand with a machete-like knife, cleaned and cut into pieces, then slowly baked, a process that extracts the sweet agave juice, converting its starches into sugars. The piñas are then mashed to separate the juice from the pulp, and the juice is mixed with yeast and fermented into alcohol. Water is used to cut the distillate to about 80 proof. Classifications have to do with how long the tequila is aged. Blanco or white tequila isn’t aged at all; reposado (which means “restful”) spends at least two months in oak; añejo (Spanish for “mature”) is wood-aged for a year or more; and extra añejo (a new classification added in 2006) is barrel-aged for more than three years. Since blanco never touches oak, it

Rey Sol Extra-Aged Añejo Double-distilled and then aged six years in French oak barrels by Tequila San Matías de Jalisco, this dark-hued tequila in a smiling-face bottle (designed by Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante) carries a $250 price tag. The aging lends a smoothness that’s deliciously sublime on the palate, with a taste of chocolate and hazelnut. It’s hearty enough to stand up to red meat—or serve it as an accompaniment to dessert and coffee.

delivers the purest notes of agave, while añejo features deeper, woodier, tannic notes layered over the agave. All of the varieties have a place in mixology—or can be sipped straight. For a long while, the only brands available in the U.S. were adulterated “mixto” tequilas, which could contain up to 49 percent non-agave sugars—the kind more likely to give you a nasty headache the next day. (Remember those tequila-fueled nights in college? You were probably drinking mixto.) In the 1950s, singer and actor Bing Crosby and his buddy Phil Harris, both of whom knew their way around a tequila bottle, started their own import company specifically to bring in Herradura, a 100 percent blue agave tequila they discovered on a trip to Mexico. It would be the only “pure” tequila available north of that nation for the next few decades, positioned as a sipping tequila rather than a cocktail ingredient. Read about Herradura’s extra añejo at right below—along with five other standout tequilas on these pages. They are all, of course, made with 100 percent blue agave.

Casamigos Reposado Yes, this is George Clooney’s tequila, a partnership with friends Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman. More importantly, it’s a damn fine, small-batch, entirely legit tequila, made by a master distiller in Jalisco. The Casamigos team slow-cooks its piñas for three days and gives it an extra slow fermentation as well, looking to further capture the purity and intrigue of the plant. It’s then aged in American oak. The reposado ($50) is a caramel-laden and smoothly textured quaff that will go down easy after dinner, on the rocks, finishing with a hit of cinnamon stick that lingers on the tongue. No salt or lime required.

Herradura Selección Suprema Extra Añejo This caramel-colored concoction ($350) comes entirely from the Casa Herradura estate in Jalisco, the piñas cooked for 26 hours in stone and brick ovens. This is when the plants become dark orange in color and give off an intensely sweet aroma and flavor. After fermentation, the tequila is aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels for four years. Upon release it becomes a celebration of vanilla, crème caramel and apple pie, with additional seasonings of citrus and allspice. Enjoy over ice.

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.
