Interior Design with a Point of View One of the most optimistic things that we can do is to surround ourselves with beauty that inspires us to trust living a joyful life. As an artist and interior designer, James Yarosh enjoys imagining and creating settings for beautiful lives. Recently, James was invited to collaborate with one of his longtime art and design clients to design a three-bedroom New York City apartment. James’ s idea was to draw from the apartment’s significant views to create a design that created a dialogue with the outside to feel as if one were living in the view. The color palette was inspired by the soft pink and pale yellow facades not commonly associated typically with cityscapes to present a much kinder image of New York City to imagine.... Read the full story, along with additional interior design portfolio images, and view the gallery’s current art collections on the What’s New page of the gallery’s website.

Open to the Public Saturday 12-4 p.m. & by appointment 732.993.5278 Join us on Saturdays at the gallery to view art collections in person and/or to introduce discussion about potential design projects. 45 East Main Street, 2nd floor loft Holmdel, New Jersey

THE

GARMANY GUIDE THE PARTY STARTS HERE

FEEL THE COOL WHITE SAND

Opposites attract, and sometimes they create magic. Representing the present while respecting the past might seem like a contradiction, but for White Sand pants, the yin and yang make perfect sense. Their men’s line combines the Italian style of the Emilia-Romagna region with a Tokyo vibe. It’s a mix of office and leisure, contemporary with neoclassicism. And the resulting collection blends perfectly, as if its opposite qualities always were meant to coexist and harmonize. While the brand has been around since 1979, it’s new to North America, and now Garmany has it. Try on a pair of White Sand pants, merge your polar opposites and create some magic.

How can a women’s clothing line be retro and contemporary at the same time? It’s a fine line, but Retrofête walks it perfectly. The luxury style brand mixes cool-girl attitude with a retroesque flair (hence the name, Retrofête). Their line is not made for a quiet time at home; it’s more like a loud night out and a splashy entrance. Founders Ohad Seroya and Aviad Klin have mastered sequins, lace and draped silhouettes that conjure up the energy of disco without looking dated. If you’re the life of the party, Retrofête was made for you. If you’re more reserved, well, Retrofête can turn you into a turbocharged party girl. Either way, ask about Retrofête and get the party started.

POUR IT ON!

SPRING/SUMMER 2019

Forget the memories of college spring break and enter the world of sophisticated and refined tequilas. In The Tequila Dictionary (Octopus, $20), author Eric Zandona takes readers on an A-to-Z tour, highlighting reasons why this spirit is moving up the list of preferred drinks among A-listers. George Clooney is known to enjoy a pour—he even launched his own brand of tequila. So have Adam Levine, Justin Timberlake and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. That’s not a bad list for a liquor often blamed for morning hangovers. Zandona, director of Spirits Information at the American Distilling Institute, details the history and rich culture surrounding this unique spirit as well as the distilling techniques used to perfect it. We’ll drink to that!

THE GARMANY GUIDE THE STARS ALIGN

If you’re looking for a clothing line with star power, look no further than Brandon Maxwell. Having worked as fashion director to Lady Gaga, his clients include Michelle Obama, Oprah, Meghan Markle, Blake Lively, Jane Fonda and Queen Rania of Jordan. You can’t get more A-list than that. The label launched in New York in 2015, born out of the desire to make women feel beautiful, sophisticated and powerful. Inspired by strong females, Maxwell’s hallmark style is sharp tailoring and sculptural details. But you don’t need to be nominated for an Oscar or be married to a prince to get the Brandon Maxwell look. Find it at Garmany to add some star power to your closet.

ETRO, NOT RETRO Family-run businesses are a different breed: They take extra care with their customers and their product (just like we do at Garmany). Etro is an Italian company headquartered in Milan, the Italian fashion hub that oozes with style and craftsmanship. The brand has been synonymous with Italian style, elegance and quality since it was founded in 1968 by “Gimmo” Etro. Today, the founder’s son, Kean Etro, designs the menswear collections, and three siblings run important parts of the company. Their men’s shirts are known for fine craftsmanship and the artful use of design and color. Etro shirts live up to their reputation—and their founder’s name—that’s why we feature them at Garmany. Ask for the Italian shirts with the long history and short name: Etro.

FILM FEST Among Red Bank’s many attractions and claims to fame is the Indie Street Film Festival: five days of film, art, discussion and inspiration. It’s a venue for films and filmmakers with low/no budgets to be recognized and heard.

The films are a mixed bag, and you never know what to expect. That’s why the event is an incredible opportunity to learn, grow and enjoy new films from different perspectives. This year’s festival is scheduled for July 24–28. For tickets, a lineup of films and more information, go to indiestreetfilm festival.org.

THE GARMANY GUIDE IN LIVING COLOR

If you ever doubted that clothes speak, you haven’t seen the creations of Prabal Gurung. They chatter with the language of joy and energy. Vibrant, electric and exploding with color are descriptions of his women’s spring/ summer collection. The Nepalese-American fashion designer launched his line in 2009, and it’s now sold in more than 20 countries. He counts Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway as fans. Born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu, Gurung began his design career in New Delhi before moving to New York. He sees his work as a way to raise awareness across cultures and to erase the borders that divide us. “Listen” to his new collection at Garmany and hear what it has to say to you.

Their emphasis is on German lagers, particularly pilsners, but they have English-style ales as well.

THE GARMANY GUIDE ISLAND INSPIRATION Charo Ruiz couldn’t help but be a fashion designer. Born in Seville, Spain, into a family of dressmakers, she had a natural sense of fabric and pattern from a young age. Ruiz launched her career in Barcelona in the late ’70s, eventually settling in Ibiza and starting her own workshop. There, she was inspired to create a collection of coverups that reflected the warmth, colors and textures of the island. So it’s natural that her tops, skirts and kaftans are cut from organic fabrics and feel breezy and effortless. Now, more than 30 years later and 60 collections launched, Charo Ruiz Ibiza is an established worldwide brand. Garmany is proud to sell her collections and make them available to you. It’s almost like taking a trip to Ibiza. Feel the warm wind in your hair…if only by wearing Charo Ruiz.

WELCOME TO THE ‘METROBURB’ Ever hear of the transistor, cell phone technology, solar cells or communications satellites? We have Bell Labs in Holmdel to thank for all of those. It was once home to some of America’s most ingenious minds, right in our backyard where they crafted major tech advancements that helped shape the 20th century. Today, Bell Works is the rebirth of the former Bell Labs building, where a one-of-a-kind facility blends offices, retail, dining, hospitality…and who knows what else. There’s always something going on, from pop-up shops in the quarter-mile-long atrium and industry events on the rooftop deck to frisbee on the turf fields and meetings in the café. Stop by and see why it’s so hard to define. You might just get the inspiration for a new invention. BELL WORKS, 101 CRAWFORDS CORNER RD., HOLMDEL, 732.226.8818

If you have a pet, you know bonding with animals can be therapeutic. Special People United to Ride (SPUR) is a Lincroft-based nonprofit that works in conjunction with the Monmouth County Park System’s Sunnyside Equestrian Center to provide people with disabilities the chance to ride, care for and bond with horses. For these folks—and it applies to all of us—riding a horse provides a variety of physical, emotional and psychological benefits. That translates into improved self-esteem and better social skills, not to mention a host of physical benefits. If you know anyone who might want to get involved with SPUR, contact Jackie West, program director, at 732.224.1367, ext. 3 or visit spuronline.org.

COMFORT TO A T (SHIRT, THAT IS)

On days when you feel like a T-shirt-and-jeans guy, slide into a Sunspel tee. Known for introducing boxer shorts to the U.K. in 1947, Sunspel has made new waves in the fashion world with its innovative T-shirts and sweatshirts. Manufactured from luxurious English-spun cotton, these garments are soft and light and they’re great to wear to the ballgame, while running errands or even to the office. Sure, tees and sweatshirts are considered wardrobe basics, but we guarantee there’s nothing ordinary about Sunspel. Visit Garmany to stock up on Sunspel and slip into something more comfortable.

THE GARMANY GUIDE HEAR ME ROAR As designer Dorothee Schumacher’s brand turns 30, the timing is just right. When the German-born designer started her brand, the days of #MeToo were still decades away, but she was ahead of her time by combining femininity and strength in her pieces. Her clothing highlights beautiful proportions, masterful drapery and a feminine aesthetic that translates easily into everyday life. Her collections are characterized by nonchalant elegance with a playful coolness. Schumacher defines the woman whose attitude will fit her creations: “There are no limits for her in this world, because her mind knows no limits.” Ask your Garmany associate for Dorothee Schumacher’s spring/summer collection. The time is right.

LIVING THE VIDA CORAL

28

Drumroll, please! Pantone has proclaimed “Living Coral” as its color of the year. A vibrant coral hue (specifically Pantone 16-1546), it has a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. It’s perfect for giving an uplifting jolt of life-affirming vitality. And let’s face it: Considering the disruptive social and environmental climate of the last few years, we could all use a healing dose of hope and optimism. Evocative of life-source coral reef seascapes, “Living Coral” offers a harmonious buoyancy in our continually shifting world. Sociable and spirited, its engaging nature encourages lighthearted activity and playful expression. King of color Pantone has picked the color of the year since 2000, and the chosen hue is a definite player, influencing trends across far-ranging fields from automotive and interior design to architecture and fashion. So, look for Living Coral in everything from clothing and accessories to decorative accents on hi-tech gadgets and home décor. Crave a positive change? Inject some “Living Coral” into your life and color schemes, and get set to make 2019 a year of revitalization and optimism.

One way that’s apparent is in the number of familyowned and -run businesses here, and others that are clearly part of the Red Bank “family.” Of course, Garmany is a longtime partner with the community, but here are a few others to note. * The Molly Pitcher Inn is a boutique hotel and restaurant that was built in 1928 and named after the Revolutionary War hero who played a key role in the Battle of Monmouth. Molly Pitcher Inn is located on the Navesink River, with gorgeous views of the scenic waterfront. The hotel experienced a huge revival after it was renovated in the late ’90s by owners Kevork Hovnanian and his son-in-law James Barry. Speaking of family, The Molly Pitcher Inn also has a nearby sibling, The Oyster Point Hotel, also in Red Bank. THE MOLLY PITCHER INN, 88 RIVERSIDE AVE., RED BANK, 732.739.7173; THEMOLLYPITCHER.COM

* Leonardo Jewelers is the immigrant success story come true. A Cuban-Lebanese immigrant to the United States, Leonardo Zeik was the personification of the American dream. Now run by his children, Leonardo Jewelers offers an exceptional selection of watches and jewelry, but it’s the personal service and warm and inviting experience that will make you feel like family. Check out their jewelry and awardwinning Swiss timepieces. Because Leonardo Jewelers is a family-owned business, you’ll always have an opportunity to work with one of the owners. LEONARDO JEWELERS, 35 E. FRONT ST., RED BANK, 732.747.7880; LEONARDOJEWELERS.COM

* The Bistro at Red Bank and Teak are restaurant siblings. Chef/owner George Lyristis literally grew up in the restaurant business. At 19, he ran his first kitchen as executive chef. In 1996, he and his brothers, Charlie and Taso, opened up The Bistro. Over the last 20+ years, he and his restaurants have been valuable members of the Red Bank community. The eateries may be

siblings, but the menus differ greatly, as Teak features a creative menu of Asian-American cuisine, while The Bistro’s eclectic menu includes pizza and sushi. They’re located in the heart of downtown Red Bank near the Count Basie Theatre and Two River Theater, and a block from the Navesink River.

* Birravino is a rustic Italian eatery here in Red Bank. It boasts an irresistible combination of hearty trattoria cooking with house-brewed beers and well-priced wines (Birravino means beer and wine in Italian). A couple of things to note: 1. A sense of community is palpable in the roomy, brick-lined space featuring long communal tables; 2. The restaurant is owned and operated by Victor Rallo, who’s the host of the PBS TV show Eat! Drink! Italy! Rallo’s mission in life is to celebrate Italian food and culture. He’s an accessible and gregarious host who treats his customers like family, and as you’d expect in a family kitchen, pastas are made in house. BIRRAVINO, 183 RIVERSIDE AVE., RED BANK, 732.842.5990; BIRRAVINO.COM

* As the owner of Goldtinker, Joe Romanowski has earned a great reputation in our area over the past 40 years. He not only wants to make sure his customers look and feel good, but to make buying jewelry (especially a diamond) a simple and smooth process. Romanowski is an internationally recognized jewelry designer backed by a team of four jewelers with more than 100 years of combined industry experience. Goldtinker had locations in Deal for 42 years and in Rumson for 32 years, until Romanowski moved to Red Bank. He also runs the funkier Poor Cat Designs, down the road at 69 Broad St. GOLDTINKER JEWELERS, 24 BROAD ST., RED BANK, 732.531.8787; GOLDTINKER.COM

THE GARMANY GUIDE A DELICATE BALANCE

Since 2010, Jonathan Simkhai has offered women refined ready-to-wear collections. At its heart, the brand’s aesthetic philosophy plays on the balance between feminine strength and sensuality. That balance proves elusive for some designers, but Jonathan Simkhai uses customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines and contoured silhouettes to embolden women, inspiring confidence and poise. Finally, here’s a line that strikes the right balance between your kitten and your tigress. Try on Jonathan Simkhai’s spring/summer collection at Garmany and set that cat free.

PICKS FOR YOUR POCKET

Wallets are as essential for function as they are for style. More than mere money-holders to carelessly shove in your pockets, they can—and should— add value and credit to your fashion worth. But with so many from which to choose, which is right for you and your needs? No worries. Our guide of four popular wallet styles will fit the bill! BIFOLDS are the most popular and timeless pick. The piece folds in half and typically features interior card slots, an ID pocket and bill compartment as well as open pockets behind the main sections. With a slim design, a bifold can fit comfortably in either the front or back pocket of your pants.

TRIFOLDS are named for how they fold into thirds. Though they are smaller and house just as much as bifolds, trifolds may not be the most flattering to your silhouette because of their bulk. Typical features include a bill compartment (with or without a bill divider); ID pocket, which may flip out or up; and more credit card slots than the usual bifold.

HIPSTERS, also known as attaché wallets, are taller,

wider versions of the bifold. Regarded as a dressier, more sophisticated option, they are favored by professionals and executives.

SPORTS OF DIFFERENT SORTS

You’re a fan of taking the least-traveled road, so this list of must-see sports museums you might not know existed is likely to score a touchdown with you. Sure, there’s plenty to fancy at the halls of fame in destinations like Cooperstown and Canton, but how about wandering further afield to lesserknown institutions that commemorate other sports and players. Here’s a select offering: INTERNATIONAL TENNIS HALL OF FAME Located in Newport, Rhode Island, it preserves and promotes the history of tennis and celebrates its champions. It includes a museum, grass tennis courts, an indoor tennis facility and a court tennis facility. (Modern tennis derives from court tennis, an indoor version with slightly different gameplay and setup.) With 25,000+ objects and memorabilia and a vast collection of archival resources, it’ll be love at first serve. COLORADO SNOWSPORTS MUSEUM & HALL OF FAME This modest spot in the snow mecca of Vail features educational exhibits on the history of snow sports, a continuous 40-minute loop video devoted to the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division of WWII and a gift shop. Small but comprehensive in its scope of the history of snow sports from start to today, it’s well worth the visit. U.S. BICYCLING HALL OF FAME Peddle on over to this nonprofit space conveniently located in downtown Davis, California, where cycling enthusiasts can immerse themselves in more than 150 years of bicycle history, or even rent the hall for a party or other event. SKATEBOARDING HALL OF FAME & MUSEUM Skateboarding went from “outlaw” status to national sport at breakneck speed. The Skateboarding Hall of Fame & Museum has documented that wild ride since it opened in 1997 in Simi, California. Boasting the world’s largest collection of skateboarding memorabilia, it now houses 5,000+ items, including a rare White Lightning Skatecar, circa 1940s skateboarding artifacts and hundreds of vintage and specialty skateboards. The museum is connected to the Skatelab Skate Park, so bring your board! INTERNATIONAL TENNIS HALL OF FAME

SOUL FOOD

For folks who are livin’ on a prayer, getting a hot meal isn’t always easy. That’s unacceptable to Jon Bon Jovi. The famed rocker and New Jersey native is the driving force behind JBJ Soul Kitchen, a nonprofit that is dedicated to eliminating hunger, building relationships and celebrating community. Their artisanal, seasonal menu has no prices. You order what you like and are encouraged to make a $20 donation. They work with Laurino, a sustainable farm in Colts Neck, that provides much of their fresh, farm-to-table food. A recent menu featured a winter harvest salad, wild mushroom risotto and soul rub pork loin. Yum! Feed your body…and your soul at JBJ Soul Kitchen. JBJ SOUL KITCHEN, 207 MONMOUTH ST., RED BANK, 732.842.0900; JBJSOULKITCHEN.ORG

LONGS (also called coat, breast or suit wallets) are designed for suit coat pockets. Because they don’t fold, this style keeps your bills flat and crisp, and offers ample space for credit, debit and ID cards. They’re a safe choice for men who prefer holding things close to the vest—securely stashing essentials in their inner suit pocket rather than the back pocket.

MUSIC

NOCTURNAL CALM

Whether you need to dance, shout along, laugh or just chill, music is the way to unwind for your evening. These four artists bring something to the table for whatever kind of day you just had. By Harry Dowden

HOP ALONG The Philly-based indie band has been long-beloved for rocking, but with their latest work, Hop Along leveled up even further. Frances Quinlan’s vocal lines are more acrobatic; her brother Mark’s drum lines more intricate. Tyler Long’s propulsive basslines and Joe Reinhart’s melodic guitar riffs flesh out the arrangements. What keeps you coming back, though, is the gritty delivery of Quinlan’s vignettes. Technical growth without sacrificing their emotional core. The album: Bark Your Head Off, Dog Go-to songs: opening 1-2 punch “How Simple” and “Somewhere A Judge” Deeper dives: “Get Disowned,” the closing and title track off their sophomore album

BETTER OBLIVION COMMUNITY CENTER A combined-forces effort from two of the biggest names in bitterly heartfelt Americana, Phoebe Bridgers’ and Conor Oberst’s collaboration offers a bit of cathartic salve in these trying times. Bridgers is coming off a crushing debut album and a team-up with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus. Oberst has a long history of biting but always earnest lyricism. Subtitled Ten Captivating Stories, the duo’s humorous cynicism keeps your attention—“I’m gettin’ used to these dizzy spells; I’m takin’ a shower at the Bates Motel.” Heavy drinking, politically exhausted, equally liable to make you smirk or sob, BOCC is a rollicking time. The album: Better Oblivion Community Center Go-to song: “Dylan Thomas” Deeper dives: “Would You Rather,” the Oberstfeaturing track off Bridgers’ Stranger in the Alps

THE INTERNET Funk for a new era, The Internet have paved a way as purveyors of vibrant grooves in a digital age. I’ll lay it out no-nonsense: Syd, Steve Lacy, Matt Martians, Christopher Smith, Patrick Paige; vocals, guitar, keys, drums, bass. Together, they blend analog and digital to create chilledout tunes. After claiming that her groove is so on-point she might snatch up the listener’s wife, Syd offers up a half-hearted apology: “I’m sorry that I’m so blasé.” The Internet sound anything but remorseful for their laid-back approach. The album: Hive Mind Go-to song: “La Di Da” Deeper dives: Syd’s solo album Fin, Steve Lacy’s “Dark Red”

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA Toe-tappingly bizarre guitars, filtered falsetto, stank-face syncopation: all a part of the UMO M.O. The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Ruban Nielson, the project has staked a claim on danceable jams with dense, textural production. Some tracks bring certain descriptors to mind: rubbery and taut vs. fuzzed-out and loose. Inspired just as much by ’60s psych as ’70s funk and ’90s R&B, Nielson’s genre-bending has led to some majorly fun music. The last year saw an album release as well as an LP’s worth of instrumental material—an extra dispatch from UMO’s strange plain. The album: Sex & Food Go-to song: “Hunnybee” + accompanying video Deeper dives: Side A of 2015’s Multi-Love; breakthrough track “Ffunny Ffrends”

THE GARMANY GUIDE

ELEMENTS

OF MEN’S STYLE ...in which Johnell Garmany solves your sartorial dilemmas. What spring collections and trends are you excited about? We’ve seen nothing but plainfront pants for the past two decades, so it’s exciting to see trousers with pleats coming back. They’re not your father’s pants, (think baggy pants with quadruple pleats). Today’s styles have trimmer fits and modern crops. Brunello Cucinelli and PT01 are doing them, as well as a new brand we’re excited about, White Sand. These pants are great to wear with a pair of sneakers. If a man only buys one new wardrobe item for the season, what should it be? That’s easy, a cardigan sweater. It’s one of the most functional pieces a guy can own: You can wear it with a T-shirt and jeans, underneath a suit jacket or with a pair of shorts on a cool night. It also has a slimming effect when worn under a jacket. We have amazing cardigans by designers like Brunello Cucinelli, John Smedley, Autumn Cashmere and Rag & Bone. How can the “classic guy” embrace the casual-and-comfort style that’s on trend? Some say fashion has gotten lazy, which isn’t 100 percent true. Athletic wear is fashionable,

and many designers are incorporating luxury fabrics in their pieces. We brought in joggers, for example, from PT01, Loro Piana and Brunello Cucinelli that not only feel good, but they look good too. You’re going on a quick getaway— what’s in your weekender bag? Garmany’s Made in Italy navy suit is gorgeous, Kiton-quality and always great to have because it’s easy to break down for different uses. You can wear the suit with sneakers, just the trousers with a nice shirt or just the jacket with a pair of tailored jeans.

big—I’m excited about this season’s collection from Diadora. It’s a fact that men love accessories. What are some pieces that can make or break an outfit? I can’t stress this enough: A jacket should always be worn with a pocket square. We have a wonderful selection by Garmany, Isaia and Simonnot-Godard that would look great with many sportcoats. Another piece to consider is a unique bracelet by Jonas Studio. I’m always wearing two or three on my wrist.

What about Sunday Funday? This is a good time to wear those joggers. Pair them with a really cool sweatshirt from Sunspel and Golden Goose sneakers and you’re ready to go.

Garmany has been serving customers for more than 40 years, the past 30 in Red Bank. What are the tricks of the trade that bring customers back to the store year after year? It all starts with service. Our customers are the most important thing in the world to us, and we’re genuinely happy to see all of them. Many of them are more than customers and clients; they’re like family. I’ve been giving out more hugs than handshakes. When they come in, we’re not always looking for a sale: We want them to come hang out, have a bagel and coffee with us and just shoot the breeze.

The sneaker trend is still going strong. What brands are leading the charge? Guys love Common Projects and Golden Goose. Salvatore Ferragamo and Loro Piana are looking great too. Stylish trainers are also

Father’s Day is coming up—what’s the perfect gift for dear old Dad? My go-to gift advice is a pair of Master & Dynamic headphones. They’re good looking, and the sound quality is amazing.

What’s the smartest “going out for dinner” look? I always wear a sportcoat with either a crewneck sweater or cardigan with a soft cotton shirt. I’d pass on the sneakers this time and go with a double monk strap DiBianco or brown Santoni loafers.

| GGARMANY

What do you want for Father’s Day? Life is moving too fast, so I’ll just take some good quality time with the family.

WOMEN’S TRENDS

THE LOOK

FOR SPRING AND SUMMER

Find the right style, whether it’s basic or badass.

ALL THE BEIGE!

Neutrals never go out of style, and this season, beige is the color of choice. Monochromatic ensembles pranced down the runways in hues ranging from oatmeal and sand to caramel and mocha and, you’d best believe, the looks were anything but bland. How can you take an everyday shade from basic to badass? Take a hint from Ganni, whose skin-colored button-up bares a lot! For those who don’t believe less is more, slip a cami underneath for a modest, yet modern approach. Up next: See by Chloé’s head-to-toe knit iteration, which is not only chic, but will take you from boardroom to beach party in a matter of seconds. Just pair with flip-flops and a cute straw hat. Feeling fancy? Give Caroline Constas’ gown a whirl. The sleek bodice and ruched skirt are sure to flatter all.

WHITE-HOT

DRAWSTRING DRESSING

A sleek dress is a staple in every fashionista’s wardrobe—especially styles with figure-flattering silhouettes that are equal parts swishy and chic. Cue: drawstring dresses, which we’re living for this season. Cinch ’em slightly loose to emphasize your middle, a la Vince, and let your strings hang low for an effortlessly cool vibe. Streetwear more your thing? Rag & Bone’s got you covered: A utility jacket looks even edgier as a slouchy mini. Just tug toward the waist to show off your smallest section and voilà! And leave it up to design maven Prabal Gurung to take the trend to the next level with colorful hues and midriff-baring cutouts. Hint: Tie tighter to reveal more skin.

Tiger, snakeskin and cheetah, oh my. No doubt, animal prints were a movement this fall. But leopard led the pack, making its way onto the spring and summer scene in a fierce way. Enter Veronica Beard, who layers her summery, all-white ensemble with a spotted hoodie for an extra bit of edge. If safari-chic is more your thing, Marissa Webb’s got you covered. Highwaisted khaki shorts pair perfectly with the playful pattern. (Hello, South Africa!) And if you dare, step into Pam & Gela’s Sporty Spice-inspired sweat suit to take a walk on the wild side. Extra points for rocking the matching backpack.

| GARMANY

Nothing screams spring and summer quite like white-on-white. Whether worn to the beach or on the city streets, the monochromatic look makes quite a statement. On top of the trend is Cinq à Sept, whose frilly frock is surely one of our faves. Tiers of tulle and a daring deep V make this ethereal number extra special. If you’re a gal who prefers structure, Jonathan Simkhai’s your guy. He proves chalk-colored cargo pants are flattering and pair perfectly with a lacey, off-the-shoulder corset. For a more casual approach, we’re digging RtA’s slouchy tracksuit. Pair with heels to dress it up or kick it in sneaks for a laidback vibe.

WOMEN’S TRENDS BELT IT!

HOT TIPS Now that you got the gear, it’s time to wear it well.

WHO WEARS SHORTSHORTS?

PSA: Cycling shorts are here to stay. But the good news is the phenomenon has inspired designers to expand on the fad, opting for high-fashion, structured, slouchier iterations—no bike needed. Brands like RtA and Pam & Gela went for a tailored, form-fitting approach, while See by Chloé kept it swishy and sweet. To show off your stems, we suggest a strappy sandal to instantly elongate the legs. Comfort over everything? Espadrilles or flatforms are our go-to.

First seen on streetstyle stars, chunky belts have finally surfaced on the spring runways, and it’s no wonder. They’re an easy-tothrow-on accessory that instantly accentuates your curves and elevates any outfit. Take Marissa Webb, whose leather iteration gives shape to a flouncy bohemian sheath. How to add structure to an oversized cargo jacket? Look no further than Cinq à Sept, which cinches at the waist to reveal a sultry silhouette. Next in line, but certainly not least: Veronica Beard, which transforms a slouchy blazer into a bodyhugging top by simply whittling the middle.

GAR.ss19.womens.indd 40

As one of the top trends of the season, animal print is taking the spring shoegame by storm. Its undeniable versatility is its hook, acting as a neutral while taking any look to new heights. Salvatore Ferragamo proves the point with his sculptural mules—crafted with rich snakeskin leather, they exude timeless elegance and serious sex-appeal. Our advice: Pair with a power suit to make a statement. Aquazzura’s leopard flats in red velvet suede will look cute with a pencil skirt and can add some sizzle to a casual jeans and tee get-up. And Manolo Blahnik’s cheetah heels get an extra playful touch thanks to kitschy beading that’s more chic than cheesy—promise! Sport with all-black to make your fierce footwear the star of the show.

Cruz Control

We could say this “Spanish enchantress” won worldwide fame simply on the strength of her drop-dead gorgeous looks. But that wouldn’t be P.C. By Haley Longman

A

super acting chops, she surely dispelled it in 2007’s The Good Night, playing two contrasting characters whose differences she “expertly mined,” as one reviewer put it. Other notable movies included 2009’s Nine, 2016’s Zoolander 2 and the 2008 Woody Allen film Vicky Cristina Barcelona. In that one Cruz, playing a mentally and emotionally unstable wife, made history by becoming the first Spanish woman to ever win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. This gifted 45-year-old thespian is no slacker when it comes to fashion either. She has served as the spokesperson for L ’Oréal and Lancôme, a model for Ralph Lauren and Mango, and a co-designer with her sister Mónica for a line of Agent Provocateur lingerie and Loewe handbags. Currently she’s the ambassador for Chanel and the face of its aptly titled 2019 Cruise campaign, shot by the late artist-photographer and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld himself. Cruz has always admired the French fashion house. She attended her first Chanel show in 1999 and chose Lagerfeld’s designs to wear to the Cannes Film Festival, the Oscars and, most recently, the 2018 Emmys, for which she donned a custom Cinderella-blue gown made of tulle, beads and feathers that took more than 280 hours to embroider by hand. Cruz also has the luxury to combine her love of fashion with her acting, portraying Donatella Versace in the FX miniseries American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, for which she nabbed that aforementioned Emmy nomination. As for her relatively private personal life? Cruz and her fellow Oscar winner and frequent co-star Bardem—the two starred as drug lord Pablo Escobar and his mistress in Loving Pablo in 2017—have been married since 2010 and are parents to son Leo and daughter Luna. Do their kids have big shoes to fill? Damn right. Will Chanel lend them a few pairs? We’re sure of it.

A Chanel ambassador is nothing on the red carpet without complementary jewels. The activist has her own line of fine jewelry with Swarovski, Atelier Swarovski by Penélope Cruz, made exclusively with responsibly sourced materials.

SPRING/SUMMER 2019

ctress Penélope Cruz is a renowned and versatile international star—let’s get that settled right away. She’s an Oscar winner, an Emmy nominee, a designer of jewelry and accessories, and the newest ambassador for the fashion house Chanel. Much of this may seem to have been foreordained, given that nature has made her so stunning to look at that “beautiful” risks understatement. In fact, success wasn’t automatic—but it wasn’t slow either. Cruz grew up in the city of Alcobendas, about eight miles north of Madrid in central Spain, a child of a hairdresser mom and a mechanicretailer dad. She studied classical ballet well into her teen years and— having always loved performing—was bitten by the acting bug at age 14 when she saw the movie Tie Me Up!, Tie Me Down! by up-and-coming Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar. After booking an agent at age 15, she did a small cameo appearance as a dancer in a Spanish pop-music video. Her first “real” gig was as a host for a Spanish TV show for teens. At 18 she landed her first leading role in the Spanish film Jamón Jamón with future husband Javier Bardem. Cruz went topless for her role as a pregnant woman seduced by Bardem’s underwear model, and the film instantly skyrocketed her (and, fine, him too) into “sex symbol” status. But it soon became apparent that there was more to Cruz than her curves. She moved to Hollywood in 1994 and by 2001 was big-time, starring as a cocaine addict alongside Johnny Depp in Blow and as Tom Cruise’s lover in Vanilla Sky. (The latter role led to a three-year real-life relationship that must have entailed a lot of spelling confusion.) Then came 2006’s Volver, directed by her old-friend-turned-mentor Almodóvar, in which New York Times critic A.O. Scott said, “She manages to be earthy, unpretentious and a little vulgar without shedding an ounce of her natural glamour.” If there was any doubt left that this stunner had

In the hands of these greats, photography shows us fashion—and so much more.

| GARMANY

Reimagining the artistry of their business, seven legendary fashion photographers have become as famous as the subjects they portray and the venues that showcase them. Their talent and the force of their imagery have empowered them to elevate the world of fashion as they document it. Their mission is commercial, we know, but perhaps they also capture a fleeting attitude—insolent, pensive or demure. And we wonder: At our most daring, might we someday cross a corner of the new world they’ve charted, or is that just our recurrent dream as their images linger in visual memory? On these pages you’ll find this magnificent seven and samples of the moments they’ve so skillfully frozen.

Irving Penn

He liked to place subjects against austere white or gray backgrounds, the better to highlight a declarative garment like the lush, billowing dress shown here. Penn’s work appeared in Vogue for several decades before his death in 2009. His younger sibling Arthur directed the film Bonnie and Clyde. (Is there no limit to how far competitive kid brothers will go?) Penn left it to others to shoot in subjects’ “real” surroundings, defending the studio and “a stylization that I felt was more valid than a simulated naturalism.”

Ellen von Unwerth

One of the images that put this German photographer on the fast track to fame was this shot of then unknown model Claudia Schiffer. Taken in 1989 for a black-and-white ad campaign for Guess, it’s the perfect example of what von Unwerth describes as her “reportage edge” style—a thought-provoking mix of satire and sensuality. The subtle parody has Schiffer vamping à la Brigitte Bardot to own her personal brand of beauty. Von Unwerth’s secret weapon? For a decade, she was a model herself.

Annie Leibowitz

Often, through an unexpected juxtaposition of mood and setting, Leibovitz blows away the stagnant, glassy-eyed poses of conventional photography to erode artifice and uncover the subject’s soul. This beauty in the wasteland makes an enduring statement about style. Leibovitz has photographed Whoopi Goldberg in a tub of milk, Sting in the mud, Demi Moore pregnant and John Lennon curled up and kissing Yoko (on the last day of his life). But unlike the celebs in those famous images, her fashion subjects—such as Nicole Kidman and Baz Luhrmann—are generally shown wearing something.

Peter Lindbergh

It’s the photographer’s responsibility, says this German former art student and department-store window dresser, to free us all from “the terror of youth and perfection.” He likes his models with a minimum of makeup and—like the saucy about-to-dine subject here—a maximum of spontaneity. Lindbergh shot Vogue’s January 1990 cover, which has been credited with ushering in the era of the supermodel. He’s also a film director, and among the influences he cites are a similarly named pair: photographer Dorothea Lange and moviemaker Fritz Lang.

Showing popular 1950s actress-model “Sunny” Harnett in a glamorous evening gown by Grès as she dares fortune not to go her way, this iconic August 1954 photograph commanded $35,000 at a Christie’s auction in 2012. The image is a quintessential example of the grace and elegance of Avedon’s sophisticated style. When this renowned photographer died in 2004, The New York Times credited his fashion and portrait work with “helping to define America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century.”

What is “real” and what is reflection? By challenging our sense of visual logic in this image, photographer Bird compels a more than perfunctory engagement. That’s characteristic of her work. Giving us intimate, spontaneous glimpses of modern life in motion, Bird’s photos exude a lighthearted effervescence that vibrates with the messy majesty and miraculous chaos of the human experience. She has shot for top clients Nike, Levi’s, Wrangler and Warby Parker, and her fashion images have appeared in GQ, Rolling Stone and The New York Times Magazine.

He is notorious for his controversial layouts. Understatement is not his thing. As he has said, his favorite photos are those that “say a little more than just a beautiful woman in a beautiful dress.” Case in point: this model flaunts an aura of serious, in-your-face attitude: “I’m fabulous.

THE LEADING MAN

The Goldblum Standard This quirky actor sets the bar high for distinctiveness, risk-taking—and talent. By Daria Meoli

S

ner, appeared in the chorus of Broadway’s musical Two Gentlemen of Verona starting in late 1971 and played a thuggish criminal in the 1974 film Death Wish. His first starmaking role was as a bereaved baby boomer in 1983’s The Big Chill. He then starred as a brilliant yet eccentric scientist in 1986’s The Fly and as a blue alien in the 1988 sci-fi rom-com musical (!) Earth Girls Are Easy. By the ’90s, Goldblum was a box-office draw, and in 1996 he began appearing as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the blockbuster Jurassic Park films. Before shooting began, the actor reportedly took it upon himself to buy a black leather blazer and silky black button-front shirt to symbolize Dr. Malcolm’s doomsday style. His acting method is said to include dressing the part as a way to draw from the feel and aesthetic of clothing and accessories. Goldblum has brought this same “outside in” method to other notable roles, including that of David Levinson, an MIT-trained satellite technician who saves the world in 1996’s Independence Day and again in 2016’s Independence Day: Resurgence. The actor has done much-praised work in varied films including Nine Months (1995), The Switch (2010) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), and he bolstered his cred with sci-fi fans as the dubious Grandmaster in Marvel Universe’s Thor: Ragnarok in 2017. He has also lent his talents to the small screen by playing recurring characters on the sketch comedy Portlandia and the crime drama Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Would you believe he’s a jazz musician too? Nearly every Wednesday night for more than six years (except when on an on-location shoot, of course), Goldblum has played piano and bantered with sold-out crowds at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles. And last November, he and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra released The Capitol Studio Sessions, an album that went to No. 1 on the Billboard jazz album chart. The actor and his third wife, dancer and contortionist Emilie Livingston, have two nautically named sons: Charlie Ocean turns 4 this summer, while River Joe had his second birthday this spring. Whether he is performing for an intimate crowd of jazz fans or working the late-night talk-show circuit to promote his newest blockbuster, Goldblum sets a striking standard. His attire has ranged from a flashy tuxedo to a monochromatic black motorcycle jacket and turtleneck combo, a zoo-animal-and-unicornprint Prada shirt to Saint Laurent chinos. He makes a habit of pulling off looks that would intimidate other men. But one accessory is de rigueur: his eyeglasses. Goldblum has explained that he plays around with lens tints and frame styles, but prefers to keep his collection of eyewear streamlined. For his recent tour to support The Capitol Studio Sessions, he wore Jacques Marie Mage frames. Jeff Goldblum is one style icon you’ll want to keep watching—as he keeps on dressing the part.

Actor Jeff Goldblum is known for his unique sense of style—and he can pull off looks that other guys won’t dare try. From a shirt with bold animal print and tinted eyeglasses to a monochromatic black-on-black look, this Hollywood A-lister sets a strikingly high fashion standard and is a usual suspect on many best dressed lists.

SPRING/SUMMER 2019

ometimes with a performer, a sense of style comes first. When actor Jeff Goldblum was a kid in West Homestead, Pennsylvania, in the 1960s, he saw singer-dancer-actor Sammy Davis Jr. on TV and something clicked. The superstar was decked out in the fashions of London’s Carnaby Street—a style that hadn’t yet swept the Pittsburgh burbs—and the young Goldblum promptly asked his parents for (and got) a Nehru jacket with a turtleneck and a medallion necklace. Today at 66 years old, the 6-foot-4 Goldblum is someone other people watch. He’s a Hollywood A-lister who was ranked on GQ’s Best Dressed List for 2018. And making a strong visual impression has been his habit since he moved to New York at 17 to become an actor, buying a long Russian overcoat and an aviator hat at an Army surplus store to keep warm—and look cool—through Manhattan’s long winters. Traditional matinee-idol looks? That’d have to be a no. And Goldblum’s speech is characterized not so much by standard-issue mellifluence as by an idiosyncratic, abrupt cadence. Throughout his 30-plus year career, he has enthusiastically pushed the boundaries of what defines a Hollywood star and sex symbol. In his way, he deploys distinctiveness, cerebral agility and whip-smart banter to project loads of appeal, and his bold fashion choices make him stand out from the crowd. Taking both thespian and fashion risks has paid off for Goldblum, but he’s paid dues too. He studied with the acclaimed Sanford Meis-

STREET PERFORMER

Don’t let its formula racecar looks fool you—the McLaren Senna can take your breath away at the speedway and turn heads on the highway. By Darius Amos

| GARMANY

Leave it to the engineers at McLaren to develop the crème de la crème of point A-to-point-B cars. The 100 percent street legal Senna, boasting 2.8-second 0–60 acceleration, is the exotic sports car manufacturer’s most powerful road car to date. While we don’t encourage you to break speed limits, this vehicle (aptly named after the late Brazilian Formula 1 champ Ayrton Senna) can drastically improve your estimated time of arrival, whether you’re headed to the office, country club or just enjoying a night out. So how does the Senna do it? It’s equipped with a 4.0 liter, twin-turbo V-8, which generates a heart-pounding 789 horsepower. The engine gets an assist from aerodynamics, created by the body’s innovative curves and air channels, rear-mounted wing and low nose winglets. Of course, there’s plenty inside the Senna to complement the unique design. A race-inspired infotainment system features software that records lap data, should you find yourself motoring around a track. (And what Senna owner wouldn’t want to rally at the oval?)

76 JOH.ss19.auto.indd 76

3/6/19 1:44 PM


Thanks to carbonfiber body panels, the Senna weighs just 2,850 pounds—McLaren’s lightest production car since the legendary F1 of the 1990s. An optional push-todrink system keeps drivers hydrated while they’re out on a long haul. The infotainment system includes a premium sound system, navigation and three cameras. For race enthusiasts, built-in computers can record track data. For a made-to-measure fit, McLaren outfits each Senna with padded carbon-fiber bucket seats that are customized for each owner. The ceiling-mounted push-button ignition creates a jet-fighter feeling. A rear shelf behind the cockpit is the Senna’s only storage compartment. It was designed to fit two helmets and two racing suits. Owners can customize the color of the front wing tips and vents. These vents, along with the 11-pound rear wing, boost the McLaren’s downforce and aerodynamics.

This wilderness at South America’s bottom just may be the ultimate rugged escape place. By Everett Potter “Patagonia” must be one of the most exotic words in any language, conjuring up a faraway place that sounds as if it may—or may not—be imaginary. It’s a name so imbued with the mystique of exotic travel that one of the world’s most upscale brand of adventure clothing appropriated it. Rest assured, Patagonia is real. But it’s also truly remote, exotic and very wild. Just find a map

imagine, but you’ll also see flightless rheas and llama-like guanacos, not to mention armadillos, gray foxes, pumas and dozens of species of birds unique to the region, such as the pink-and-orange Chilean flamingo. On the Península Valdés, you can spot those southern right whales, along with orcas, penguins and elephant seals. The best months to head south are from November to March, the southern hemisphere summer. And while just traveling to Patagonia requires some serious planning, getting around is even more challenging. It’s clearly impossible to see all of the region in one, two or even three trips. You need a plan, as did I, and because I elected to focus on Torres del Paine, I had to fly into Santiago, Chile’s capital, followed by a lengthy internal flight to Punta Arenas and some rough riding in 4x4 vehicles. You may have seen photos of Torres del Paine National Park, with the centerpiece three granite peaks that give the park its name. The mountains have an other-worldly look, as if taken from a Tolkien novel. But it’s more than just jagged peaks. There’s an opalescent quality to the park’s icefields and deep green lagoons and the sparkling waters of Lake Pehoé. It’s a primeval landscape worthy of the best science fiction film. It’s also the region where you’ll find a new breed of small luxury lodges, built by cutting-edge architects to take in the views yet blend into the landscape. They’re designed for discerning travelers who want to hike or ride or fly fish during the day and enjoy Chilean wines, impeccable cuisine and luxury digs when they return. I toured a number of them when I was there. The newest is Awasi Patagonia, which has dramatic views of the park and just 12 villas. Designed by Chilean architect Felipe Assadi, with interiors by

of South America, gaze at the southern tip and there it is, a huge triangular swath of land where the continent tapers off just 500 miles shy of Antarctica. Patagonia was “discovered” in 1519 by Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan, whose sailors dubbed it “Patagoni,” after the native inhabitants in a then-popular but now long-forgotten 16th-century romance. The region includes parts of Chile and Argentina, with the latter country overseeing three-quarters of its vast 400,000 square miles. (That’s a Texas plus a New Mexico, with a Vermont thrown in.) Patagonia had been on my mind since Charles Joseph Finger’s The Yankee Captain in Patagonia was read to me as a child, and the aura of the place returned in adulthood when I came across In Patagonia, the classic travel account by the late British writer Bruce Chatwin. Both books are still on my shelves. What’s the appeal? Staggering wilderness and very few inhabitants. There are expansive icefields and dramatic snowcapped, sawtooth mountains, notably those found in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. There are the southern right whales off Península Valdés, the Perito Moreno glacier to explore and the seventh-largest desert in the world. The landscape, especially the eastern part, has thousands of square miles of steppes, while western Patagonia has temperate rainforests. It’s also one of the windiest places in the world. This is a landscape of fjords, archipelagos and glacier fields that excited not just Chatwin but the young Charles Darwin as well. So it’s little surprise that adventure tourism has become huge down here, with hiking, fishing, kayaking, 4x4 exploration and horseback riding making use of the vast landscape. You will see more sheep in Patagonia than you can

Paula Gutiérrez and Alejandra Bunster, the villas are made of lenga, a kind of beechwood. Guests get their own guide and a 4x4 vehicle for exploration. I also visited Explora Hotel Salto Chico, the oldest luxe lodge, which opened in 1993 and was remodeled in 2011. Explora is the only luxury lodging inside the park and is known for its comfort and its great guides. You get a wonderful sense of the park from everywhere in the building, with terrific views of the Paine Massif. I stayed at Tierra Patagonia, a new-ish hotel on the shores of Sarmiento Lake. Designed by Chilean architect Cazú Zegers, it has a dramatic glass and lengawood exterior, so that it seems to merge with the grassy landscape. Indeed, it looks as if aliens might have built this low-rise structure, which honors the surrounding radical landscape by doing little to disturb it. Once again, it’s all about the views, and the dining room has picture postcard vistas of the Paine Massif. It’s where I savored Chile’s remarkable beef, the seafood bounty from a coastline not that distant (king crab, abalone) and a compelling range of Chilean wines. I especially liked the outdoor hot tub after dinner, the best place to look for the Southern Cross and drink in the Milky Way thousands of miles from any city and its accompanying light pollution. I went hiking under a sky dotted with condors soaring above me. There were icebergs in the waters, carved from glaciers left over from the last Ice Age. I went to the foot of the Torres del Paine, which is something of a holy grail for climbers. One day I saddled up and went biking on the Cañadón Macho, a trail that’s mostly downhill until it’s not. That was a great opportunity to see some guanacos and get a workout at high altitude. But the highlight was kayaking on Lake Grey, listening to the creaking sounds from a glacier, with small icebergs jutting out of the lake. Honestly, though, there is so much more to go back and see. In early 2018 Chile established five new parks, courtesy of an endowment from the late Doug Tompkins, a philanthropist and founder of The North Face, the clothing and outdoor equipment company, and his partner Kristine McDivitt Tompkins, the former CEO of the apparel brand Patagonia. It remains the largest donation of private land to a government in South America. Now a total of 17 national parks have been linked by Chile into the Route of Parks, an almost unimaginable hiking trail though glacier country, mountains, volcanoes, steppes and forests. It’s a 10 million-acre Patagonia National Park system, which is more than three times the size of Yosemite and Yellowstone parks combined. That’s a lot of wilderness to see, mindboggling, in fact. But then, so is Patagonia itself, the end of the world, where touches of luxury can take the rough edges off and there is always much more to explore. Neophytes may suspect that the name Patagonia stands for someplace magical. We who have been there know that for sure.

Working (out) from home

For millions these days, the abode doubles as an office. With virtual fitness, it’s a fully staffed gym too. By Haley Longman

G

uided at-home fitness programs are hardly new. Perhaps you remember a parent, years ago, sweating in the living room to a Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons tape. (Or maybe it was you.) Well, today group workouts can be done at home if you can’t make it to the gym or just don’t feel like leaving the house. Isn’t technology the best? Virtual fitness, the trend has been dubbed, although the aches and grunts are still real. It’s a fusion of exercise with technology in which gyms or workout studios stream fitness classes online or with an app, live or prerecorded, for participants to join at home in real time or as their schedule permits. The benefits are clear. Virtual fitness is ideal for those with busy schedules and sufferers from social anxiety who may be embarrassed not to know their Boot Camp from their Burn. The phenomenon is also gaining traction with clients who have memberships at brick-and-mortar gyms. “It provides a seamless experience,” Fitness Industry Technology Council President Brian O’Rourke told the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association. “Members can do exactly the same classes they enjoy at the club. They have access to classes they wouldn’t be able to find [on the internet].” As “old-school” health clubs around the country like Gold’s Gym and Crunch create their own digital training apps for clientele who want the best of both worlds, others are taking it up a notch, launching virtual-only classes for customers who’d prefer to work out anywhere but a sweaty studio. But they’re not all just high-tech YouTube videos—the fitness world has seen a surge in live workout classes, all led by professional trainers. Obé (pronounced “obey”), launched in 2018 by two former Hollywood agents, offers 14 live workouts a day, taught by certified trainers out of a loft space in Brooklyn, punching and lunging in front of an illuminated neon backdrop. All you’ll need to participate is a laptop, WiFi and a yoga mat. A subscription to the app and website costs only $27 a month, which would barely cover the expense of a single one-hour class in a studio IRL. Then there’s ClassPassLive, which since its 2018 launch has allowed users to view live and on-demand HIIT (high-intensity interval training) classes. Here your metrics will display up on a leaderboard

JOH.ss19.fitness.2.indd 107

with other participants’, as its unique ClassPass heartrate monitor tracks your stats and calorie burn. Yes, we suppose virtual motivation is part of what you get for this $15 per month subscription. New York City-based cycling studio Peloton was one of the first to venture into virtual fitness back in 2014; anyone who purchased a stationary Peloton bike could livestream their spin classes at home. The company more recently introduced its Tread, a glorified treadmill, which boasts 10 daily live running and cross-training classes, as well as pre-recorded ones. Its price tag? A cool $4,000, with an optional $39 per month for unlimited access to live classes. However, the new Peloton digital app is a bit more doable, offering 20 live classes per day remotely for $19.49 per month. “Our bike business is exploding in a good way,” says Peloton President William Lynch. The new Commercial S22i Studio Cycle is similar to the Peloton bike, yet this NordicTrack product lets cyclists have live interactions with their trainers, who can adjust their bikes’ incline, decline and resistance. There are also a variety of full-body workout classes available for when users need a respite from cycling, as well as a few other high-tech capabilities. All yours for $2,000. If you don’t want to stare at your phone while getting your fitness on and would rather just look, well, at yourself, that’s where the first-of-its-kind Mirror comes in. Once you press the power button, it transforms into a responsive display with stereo speakers, a camera, a microphone and, of course, a mirror. Watch one of its 50 live classes—there’s cardio, strength, yoga and boxing to choose from, as well as beginner or expert level—and you’ll see the instructor, yourself and your classmates on the LED screen. The Mirror itself costs $1,495, with a monthly content subscription of $39. Of course, today’s hot fad is tomorrow’s curio, but there’s every chance that virtual fitness will make a permanent place for itself. Obé founders Mark Mullett and Ashley Mills have waxed poetic about “the ability to get in a great sweat sesh, be held accountable via a shoutout from the instructor during a live class, and connect with a like-minded community beyond your immediate ZIP code—all from the comfort of home.” Oh, what a time to be alive. Now, come on, you can do this!

THE SPORTING LIFE

act on adare You’ll discover that Irish golf can be beautiful even when you leave the sea behind. By Josh Sens

| GARMANY

Think of golf in Ireland, and brochureworthy images probably spring to mind. You picture wild and woolly layouts, their rumpled fairways, fringed with unruly native grasses, threaded through the folds of a coastal dunescape: scenes of rugged beauty, set hard along the sea. This is links golf of the throwback kind, firm and fast and windswept and thoroughly charming. Ireland is famous for it. But it’s not the only golf played on the Emerald Isle. The country is also home to inland courses, stitched through hills and forests and fields of heather. Their turf tends to be more lush than the ground along the coast, their fairways often tree-lined, their holes guarded not by ocean but by rivers, creeks and lakes. Though less well-known to travelers than Ireland’s fabled seaside links, many of these landlocked courses are terrific. None is better than a newly remade layout in County Limerick, two hours west of Dublin and a short skip south of Shannon. It’s called Adare Manor, and it stretches its green fingers astride a grand estate and resort of the same name. The manor itself dates to the early 1830s, when it was built as the home of the second Earl of Dunraven and his wife, Lady Caroline Wyndham. Nearly two centuries later, their sense of extravagance and whimsy endures. Guarded by gargoyles and decorated with ornate carvings, many of them

bestial figures carved from wood and stone, the manor brims with Gothic grandeur. Its exuberant design is accented by 365 leaded windows, 52 chimneys and four towers—architectural nods to the number of days, weeks and seasons in a year. A lovely place, in short. And then there is the golf. The original course here opened in 1995, an 18-holer crafted by the famed American golf architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. It was no slouch of a layout, esteemed enough to serve as the venue for the Irish Open in both 2007 and 2008. But that wasn’t quite enough for the resort’s current proprietor, JP McManus, a County Limerick-nativeturned-business-magnate and racehorse owner. McManus wanted more than a respected golf course. What he envisioned was a parkland paradise. He commissioned Tom Fazio to create it for him. “The result,” gushed Golf Monthly, a prominent glossy magazine published across the pond, “is arguably the most Augusta-like experience anywhere in Europe.” Augusta National, of course, is golf ’s ultimate Eden, a pristine private club in Georgia where there’s rarely a single blade of grass out of place. In its reincarnation, which came to life last year, Adare Manor is maintained in similar condition, fastidiously cared for by a squadron of groundskeepers. As part of

the multi-million-dollar renovation, sub-air drainage systems were installed beneath the greens, which are elaborate moisture-removing and temperature-regulating mechanisms that help preserve the putting surfaces in immaculate shape year-round. As for the fairways and tee boxes, they’re as close-cut as the greens at your average course. Fazio’s redesign did not alter the routing. The new course follows the same footprint, over a gently lilting swatch of sylvan terrain, along the banks of the River Maigue. But every hole has been reimagined, the greens pushed up and compellingly contoured, the bunkers enhanced with better sand and improved drainage. On the reborn course, there is double the mowed acreage that there was before. There is no long rough, so the holes, while challenging, remain playable and fun. To complement the upgraded golf experience, Adare Manor added a host of luxe amenities, including a new clubhouse called the Carriage House, replete with a restaurant serving seasonal specialties ranging from poached Atlantic lobster to succulent leg of lamb. There is a whisky bar, a heated cigar lounge and a terrace for sitting, chatting and sipping as you gaze across a verdant landscape of rare beauty. Relax. Enjoy. You can play golf on the coast another day.

Opposite page, clockwise from top: a bird’s-eye view of the gardens at Adare Manor in Ireland; Golf Monthly dubbed Adare’s newly redesigned course the “most Augusta-like experience in Europe,” a nod to Georgia’s famed Augusta National; chefs at Adare’s dining facilities use fresh ingredients from artisan suppliers to create a luxurious dining experience; just outside of the manor, the streets of County Limerick are lined with shops and art; with a spectacular view of the property’s gardens, the Drawing Room is an ideal meeting place for a cup of coffee or glass of champagne before dinner.

savor new asian bites

Please your palate with the flavors of Sri Lanka. The best part? They’re coming to a city near you! By Darius Amos

E

ven if you can locate Sri Lanka on a map, finding the right words to describe the island nation’s cuisine might be a struggle. Some think of it as a mashup of Asian flavors, though it’s influenced more by southern countries like India and Bangladesh than it is by Sri Lanka’s closest eastern neighbors (like Malaysia and Singapore). From fiery curries and pungent lime pickles to delightfully sweet onion relishes and aromatic rice bowls, dishes have powerful and memorable tastes that will please (and wake) your senses. In an age when foodies want to taste the next best thing and timid eaters finally are manning up, Sri Lankan restaurants are popping up in the world’s top culinary destinations, such as London, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto. When you travel the globe in search of Sri Lanka’s best, here are four staple dishes you should consider. CRAB CURRY The ingredients list for this favorite might fill dozens of recipe cards, but the dish is simply one of the best and tastiest on a Sri Lankan menu. A traditional crab curry uses either the mud or blue swimmer variety, both of which can be found along the country’s shores. Curries are chock full of protein—whether it’s fish, shrimp or crab—and each piece of delicate meat absorbs the flavorful coconut milk and spices: usually curry powder, turmeric and cardamom among others. Lemongrass and other secret finishing ingredients like ground, dry palm fruit stalk (shhh!) lend to the distinctive and unforgettable taste.

COCONUT SAMBOL If you’ve ever visited Sri Lanka, you probably noticed coconuts are literally everywhere. The country produces roughly 2.7 billion of them annually, and residents consume more than three-quarters of the fruit (technically, it’s also a nut and a seed). In fact, the locals consider the coconut plant “the tree of life” because of its many practical uses. Fresh grated coconut is the primary ingredient in pol sambola (aka coconut sambol), which also is comprised of red onion, ground red chilies, lime, spices and other optional ingredients like garlic and Maldive fish (cured tuna). The dish is most often served alongside curries, rice and hoppers (use the pancake to scoop up the mixture).

KOTTU ROTI In a visit to Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, the late Anthony Bourdain boasted about the city’s take on Chinese food but overlooked the country’s best street food, kottu roti. This is the people’s comfort dish, and it’s considered by many to be an immediate hangover solution. It starts with a shredded flatbread base, which then is topped with veggies like cabbage, carrots and peppers as well as meat (shrimp, chicken and beef are all delicious options), eggs and assorted aromatic spices and sauces. Chefs chop and combine the ingredients together, often in a methodical and theatrical manner on a hot griddle, to create a meal that can be enjoyed in a fine dining room or while browsing the wares at a Colombo street market.

Opposite page, clockwise from top left: traditional crab curry is finished with ingredients like lemongrass and ground palm fruit stalk; though typically served as a breakfast dish, egg hoppers are usually offered as an all-day menu item; chefs often prepare kottu roti (a mix of meat, veggies and other spices) in a theatrical manner, making it one of Sri Lanka’s most popular street foods; coconut sambol accompanies rice and hoppers on the table.

SPRING/SUMMER 2019

EGG HOPPER American pancake houses claiming to be “international” do an injustice to the name: You surely won’t find a hopper on those menus. One of Sri Lanka’s signature foods, a typical hopper is a bowl-shaped pancake made from fermented rice flour and coconut milk. With crispy edges and a doughy middle, it’s usually served as a treat for breakfast (though many eateries will offer it as an all-day plate) and accompanied by a fragrant curry and/or a spicy sambol. For those who want something a tad more decadent, an egg hopper includes a whole egg baked into the middle. Hoppers are meant to be eaten using the rip-and-dip method, but no one will judge if you’re the forkand-knife type.

rums for everyone

The rugged liquor we associate with the tropics and piracy on the high seas can be surprisingly subtle and satisfying on the tongue. By Harry Dowden

No tricky recipes or hard-to-source ingredients required; all you’ll need is a glass and a bit of time to appreciate an oft-overlooked but always satisfying spirit.

El Dorado Vintage Reserve 25 Year, $524

| GARMANY

Distilled in Guyana, the El Dorado range was launched in 1992, but the history of Guyanese rum distillation on the banks of the Demerara River goes back to the 17th century. Demerara Distillers Limited is a culmination of that history, the result of many estates teaming up over the years to combine forces and produce exceptional rum. Its consolidation of knowledge and equipment—Demerara has stills in use from as far back as the mid-18th century—has resulted in painstakingly crafted product. A big part of that skill is patience; a few years may seem to go by quickly for the artisans at a centuries-old producer. El Dorado is, in fact, an originator of the age statement rum, beginning with its 15-year. The 25-Year-Old Vintage Reserve was introduced at the onset of the millennium, with other vintages appearing since, though not yearly. Each is unique in subtle ways, but all of the ex-bourbon barrel aged and fully matured spirits contribute to the greater story of El Dorado rum. Look for a decadent experience, with an incredibly smooth product. Layers of flavor, from caramel and candied fruits to fine cigars and cinnamon, unfold as sips are enjoyed.

Appleton Estate Signature Blend 21 Year, $180

126

TSG.ss19.spirits.indd 126

An important producer with a long and rich heritage, Jamaica’s Appleton Estate consistently makes delicious, accessible and distinctive rums. Wine isn’t the only beverage that stakes a claim to terroir— Appleton is proud of its rums’ sense of place. The Nassau Valley soil imparts special qualities to the sugar cane grown on the estate, along with the limestone well from which the distillery pulls its water and its dependable native yeast culture. If Appleton is confident in its land, it’s for good reason, as rum has been produced on the estate since 1749. This blended rum actually is compiled from 15 components. Longstanding traditions and trusted palates mean that there is an enviable consistency from bottle to bottle, with a focus on supreme smoothness and warm tones. Signature Blend is a very fruit-forward rum, giving off notes of dried stone fruits, spicy pith and rind and even orange creamsicle, with an average of four years in oak contributing understated vanilla. Expect a big aroma from this bottle, like freshly zested orange filling up a room. Each sip will be bold and tropical, making for an exciting, never tiresome drinking experience. True Ahabs might seek out a rum white whale, Appleton’s 50-year-old (no typo!) Jamaican Independence Anniversary rum. Don’t expect to find this one easily, as bottle counts were low. But its mere existence speaks to Appleton’s dedication. There’s no need to rush the rum as it mellows in the barrel for years, even decades. Take a cue from the maker and savor your glass slowly, soaking in a bit of island energy.

Plantation XO 20th Anniversary, $62 A well-aged and well-traveled rum, this one begins its journey in Barbados— arguably rum’s birthplace and home to some of the most well-suited sugar cane in the world. Plantation takes a unique approach to its production, making rums from seven countries across the Caribbean and South America. Master blender Alexandre Gabriel’s background in cognac gave him a healthy appreciation for terroir, so locations are not chosen arbitrarily; each rum is tailored to a specific climate and method of production. The 20th anniversary bottling reflects the history of the brand, beginning in Barbados, then making the trip to France to rest further in Ferrand Cognac casks and earning a namesake XO. Ferrand is where Gabriel fell in love with cognac and began the journey that led to the Plantation series of rums. The spirit’s itinerary is seemingly simple: multiple years in each location. During the “tropical” and “continental” ageing processes, the components rest in a variety of barrels, including the cognac casks, bourbon barrels and fresh oak, all across a variety of toast levels. The wood varieties and dual-geography ageing result in a very complex experience, with woody vanilla flavors intermingling with deep baker’s chocolate and tropical fruit musk (think guava and passionfruit). The cognac makes a great contribution to the nearly everlasting finishes, flavors continue to dance around. A glass of the Plantation XO is something your evening leads up to, and every sip will be worth the buildup. Sipping from any of these bottles is sure to leave you satisfied, and hopefully, with a new appreciation for a classic and storied spirit. Whether you’re pairing with dessert or letting the nightcap stand alone, on a chilly spring evening or a sticky summer night, a fine sipping rum won’t let you down.

GRAPE

chardonnay’s new day

| GARMANY

Is this trite white an oak joke—or a wine that deserves a fresh look? By Josh Sens

134

If you know your ABCs, you know those letters stand for Anything But Chardonnay, a stubborn consumer movement born in opposition to one of the world’s most widely produced wines. What its adherents profess disdain for isn’t (let’s be clear here) the chardonnay grape itself, but the way they feel the varietal has been mistreated. The offending wines they have in mind are weighty, toasty whites, overwhelmed by oily notes of sandalwood and vanilla, and shot through with so much oak that drinking them leaves you with the kind of lacquered tongue you might get from licking an armoire. Lovely, right? These are the chardonnays of grotesque stereotype, often associated with California, particularly the Napa Valley. Like many caricatures, this one contains some truth. But it is not, by any stretch, even close to fair. Though poorly represented in some quarters as a cocktail-hour staple for the clinky-drink crowd and a less-than-suave accompaniment to country-club cuisine, chardonnay has always been a versatile grape that finds wonderful expression around the globe, yielding striking, beautifully structured wines that combine sultry textures with bright, food-friendly acidic bite. This is famously true in Burgundy, the Old World vinicultural holy ground where chardonnay originated. But the same can also be said of such New World regions as the Willamette Valley of Oregon, where chardonnay now flourishes in fine form.

“There’s a reason winemakers refer to chardonnay as ‘a blank slate,’” says Ben Casteel, a second-generation winemaker at Bethel Heights Vineyards, a pioneering Willamette Valley chardonnay producer that released its first vintage in 1984. “It’s an extremely adaptable varietal that to a certain extent allows you to impose your will on it. It can produce big, delicious, unctuous wines, but also equally delicious wines that are bracing and steely and acidic and reflective of a very vivid sense of place.” Like many local chardonnay makers, Casteel prefers to steer away from broad-stroke comparisons with chardonnays from Burgundy or Napa. Such blunt descriptions, he says, not only give short shift to those other regions, but also blur the stylistic range and subtlety that make Willamette Valley chardonnay distinct. Still, he recognizes that some reference points are useful. As a general rule, in the cooler climate of the Willamette Valley fruit is picked earlier than it is in Napa, so it never reaches the same degree of ripeness. That alone encourages a leaner wine that lends itself more readily to food pairings and leans more closely to white burgundy. At the same time, that younger fruit also absorbs less oak, and in the Willamette Valley they tend to use less oak than they do in Napa to begin with, so the wines don’t wind up tasting like liquid furniture. “Climate definitely plays a role, but so does culture,” says Shane Moore, head winemaker at Gran Moraine, a Willamette Valley stalwart that produces two

chardonnays per year. “We can get away with picking a little younger and using less oak because people expect it of us. People wouldn’t necessarily expect that in Napa, but they’d look to us for a wine that you might consider more austere.” It has taken time for those perceptions to take root. When Moore started making wine in 2004, he tasted through a flight of white burgundies with a mentor, who told him flat-out that chardonnay on par with the French original would never be produced in the United States. Moore believed him. Not anymore. “Nowadays there’s a lot of New World chardonnay that touches on that white burgundy level of quality,” Moore says. “We’re not the only ones.” But the region’s reputation is spreading fast. Among those helping to propel it is Josh Bergström, head winemaker at Bergström Wines, another heralded Willamette Valley chardonnay producer. Born and raised in Oregon, Bergström studied and honed his craft in Burgundy before returning to his home state to turn out chardonnay the Willamette Valley way. At once flinty and food-friendly, the wines he makes pair wonderfully with seafood the day you buy them. But Bergström also suggests them as an investment, best left to age in the bottle for 10 or even 15 years. To drink them at their peak while, say, slurping back fresh oysters, is to reinterpret your alphabet, for this admittedly oftabused wine turns out to have appealingly bracing capabilities.

TASTING NOTES Bergström 2016 Sigrid Chardonnay, $100 Yellow-gold in color, this complex wine plays out on the palate in notes of citrus and honeysuckle and makes a lovely marriage with crabs, lobster and other shellfish. Bethel Heights 2016 Casteel Chardonnay, $75 Hints of lemon mingle with a bracing salinity in this well-structured wine, which only gets better in the bottle of time. Besides seafood, it pairs deliciously with grilled pork. Gran Moraine, 2016 Yamhill-Carlton Chardonnay, $45 Sleek but structured, with a light, bright mouthfeel and summery hints of stone fruit.

sweet island retreat

| GARMANY

Visit the Sugar Beach resort on Saint Lucia, and you won’t want to leave. Maybe you won’t have to! By Rita Guarna

Think twin mountain peaks can be intimidating? Meet the Pitons. You’ll find these abrupt but comparatively diminutive volcanic spires (each about 2,500 feet) on the seacoast of the small island nation of Saint Lucia in the eastern Caribbean. They preside over the Sugar Beach Resort and Residences, a five-star Viceroy luxe property set within more than 100 acres of pristine rainforest—part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site—on the site of an 18th-century sugar plantation. (Hence the name.) And they’re just two of the many joys you’ll discover at Sugar Beach. While the resort’s exterior pays homage to its colonial past, the interior—specifically its 96 guest rooms—boasts a crisp, modern aesthetic: white-onwhite décor from the walls and furnishings to the Egyptian bedding and sheer fabrics surrounding fourposter beds. Terraces, many with magnificent views, allow guests to commune with nature, while private plunge pools encourage all to soak their cares away. But first you have to find the resort’s entrance amid the winding road with little signage. Once you locate the driveway heading into thick foliage, you’ll come upon an elegant plantation-style building, where you’ll be offered a welcome drink and tiny mobile phone that connects to your personal butler, who’s on call 24 hours a day. Need help opening a coconut? No problem. What about a spa appointment? Ditto. With relaxation in mind, one of the first items on my to-do list included exploring the resort’s Rainforest Spa, designed by leading Caribbean architect Lane Pettigrew. A palm-leaf lined corridor leads to a tropical forest where you’ll find seven wooden treatment rooms on stilts. Yes, you’re in a tree house, where you’re not just looking up at the trees, you’re practically part of them. Here you’ll enjoy all-natural Saint Lucian treatments: Think coconut as an exfoliator for a body scrub and mashed banana as part of a facial’s wrinkle busting. There are plenty of services to choose from: facials and citrus peels to bamboo massage and seaweed wraps. My choice? I signed up for a deeptissue massage. Between all that kneading and the soothing sounds of trickling water, I felt the tension

wash away. I decided to celebrate my blissful state with some serious beach relaxation—one can blithely soak up the sun at Anse des Pitons, just down the hill. OK, it’s a steep hill, but you can hitch a ride on one of the motorized tuk-tuks, the three-wheelers that were imported from Southeast Asia. And lest you worry about feeling too peckish to climb up the hill in search of a cool drink, chances are a beach attendant will appear with complimentary treats and iced tea. Once reinvigorated, you can paddleboard and pedal boat, all free. Snorkeling is free too, but the country tacks on a fee for a worthy cause: marine conservation. While it’s easy to vow to never leave the resort, Saint Lucia itself is a delight. It has two airports with daily flights to and from the U.S. It’s northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique, and dropping those neighbors’ names should give you an idea of the kind of sunny, beachy ’hood we’re talking about. Spend some time on this island and you won’t wonder why in its colonial past the French and British greedily snatched it from each other so many times. Besides the rainforest and the iconic Pitons, this volcanic-formed paradise offers sparkling white beaches coexisting blissfully with quaint fishing villages. It’s the perfect backdrop for adventure, whether it’s a lofty zipline ride above the trees, a refreshing dip under a cascading waterfall, horseback saunters along the coast or snorkeling in turquoise waters. (You can climb nature trails on the Pitons too.) Sugar Beach isn’t far from “the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano” at Sulphur Springs Park. It’s way more hissing fumaroles and spitting geysers than erupting magma, and the mineral-rich, exfoliating mud does a body good (as long as you don’t mind the smell of rotten eggs). Saint Lucia is thought to have been settled first by Arawak Indians around 200 A.D., then the French arrived in the mid-1500s. The island became a nation when it won independence from Britain in 1979. In the centuries in between, influxes from Africa, Asia and the Americas contributed to its multicultural mix. You can taste this tangy diversity in Saint Lucia’s eclectic cuisine. It makes full use of the fertile island’s

produce and seafood to serve up the best of farm(and sea)-to-table delights. From mouthwatering accra (salted fish cake) enjoyed at roadside stands to a magnificent mahi-mahi dinner at one of Sugar Beach’s fine restaurants, it’ll be love at first bite. It turns out food plays a big part in the Sugar Beach experience, and if the mood strikes, you can nosh all day long. There’s breakfast at The Terrace and a leisurely lunch at the The Bayside, a stone’s throw from the pool and beach. The Palm Court offers afternoon tea and sunset cocktails, while The Cane Bar doubles as a specialty rum and sushi bar. Libations such as the Lava Flow—a mix of aged rum, strawberry nectar, orange juice and mint leaves—and the Rosemary Mojito (white rum, mint, lime, rosemary syrup, brown sugar and seltzer) left us feeling refreshed and eager to try the bar bites. The Great Room is the resort’s formal eatery, with fresh seafood and both Caribbean- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes. The garlic-roasted sea bass with baby leeks and mussel-saffron hollandaise was a favorite. We ate there twice, and both times were divine. Never want to leave? No problem! Invest in a piece of paradise and you can come back any time. Now you can own one of the hotel’s Beachfront Collection residences. Built by the award-winning Michaelis Boyd Associates, a British firm, these include fourbedroom homes with butler service, game rooms, Italian kitchens with Gaggenau and Miele appliances, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Private reflection pools surround master bedrooms, rain showers grace bathrooms, and you can find virtually anything your hedonistic mind can conjure up. Residence owners have full access to the five-star service and facilities provided by the resort, including two floodlit tennis courts with certified pros, sailing and other water sports. Plus they’re offered a 15 percent discount on food and beverage purchases and spa treatments. Imagine having a home base overlooking the pearly white sands of Sugar Beach and the Caribbean’s shimmery blue waves—with those up-closeand-personal Pitons cozily watching over you.

From top, left to right: accommodations at Sugar Beach Resort and Residences feature stunning views and luxury amenities, such as timber decks with expansive lounging areas for sunbathing or communing with nature. Enjoy local rums (the resort has a resident rummelier), spectacular waterfalls and delicious dishes, such as tuna tartare. Wake up in paradise to the promise of adventure and the call of crystal-clear waters.

GROOMING

The Over/Under A new ’do shows your personality and a beard gives you ’tude, but let’s face it—shaping your eyebrows can provide your mug the makeover it deserves. By Darius Amos

LONG

SQUARE

HEART

ROUND

DIAMOND

Ever wonder how guys like Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake can regularly change their beards and ’dos and always look good? Because there are no extra considerations for face proportion or structure, grooming comes easy for guys with this shape—and eyebrows are no exception. So go ahead and experiment: Flat brows or curved, neither shape will make the face appear more oval. A soft angled shape, however, is a happy medium. These brows will start upward from the bridge of the nose then arch at the top.

Why the long face? No, it’s not about a glum feeling, we’re talking about measureable length, from chin to forehead. There’s a whole lot of face to look at, and that’s not a bad thing, particularly if you have a mug like Adam Levine or Kiefer Sutherland. But even they grow tired of folks looking them up and down the face. Stop this with flatter eyebrows, which create a horizontal line above the eyes and make the face appear shorter.

It’s hip to be square— just ask Brad Pitt and David Beckham. A masculine square face can impress with a variety of eyebrow styles, which should always be kept thick to balance the strong jawline. Straight lines and angles will create a stronger appearance, while curves and rounded edges will soften facial features.

The gradual inward slope from forehead to chin gives A-listers like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ryan Gosling the smooth features that the cameras love, but it’s their eyebrows that complete the heartshaped look. Go for subtly arched brows to create the heart’s rounded bows. For a more natural look, shape your brows with a low arch. A higher arch will add length to the face and form a Valentine’s Day-worthy heart.

Designers typically alter eyebrow shape to change the expression of your smartphone’s emoji—which are mostly round faces. It’s the same in real life too. Guys like Leonardo DiCaprio and Zac Efron have shorter chins and fuller cheeks, but they lengthen the appearance of their face with moderately arched eyebrows or ones that go up and down. (Think like you’re drawing a mountain peak.)

Similar but slightly less rigid than the square face, the diamond shape is defined by its strong cheekbones (ask Johnny Depp and Cillian Murphy about it). You can soften the angles of your profile a tad with your brows. Give ’em both a slight curve—doing this will have a slimming effect on the widest part of your face.
