editor’s letter

“This was the chance to build our dream sister house. Miraculously, we are still talking.”—Poppy Delevingne The fascinating and fashionable characters featured in our annual Style issue are all wildly different from one another, and the resulting mix of homes feels to me a lot like a fun-filled dinner packed with surprise guests. Our cover siblings, It Brits Cara and Poppy Delevingne, share a new and seriously sassy Los Angeles residence that can only be described as a party palace. Meanwhile, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece returned to her Manhattan roots, moving her large family into the majestic 1913 town house on the Upper East Side that her parents had bought in the late 1980s and hired Renzo Mongiardino to decorate. Referring to the Italian maestro’s signature rich velvets, major curtains,…

lip service

Around 1935, Spanish artist Salvador Dalí saw something special in the face of movie star Mae West: an apartment. In a watercolor, he turned her blonde curls into portières, her eyes into paintings, her nose into a fireplace, and her lips into a divan. The last was a furnishing so provocative that British arts patron Edward James requested a three-dimensional version. Dalí set to the task. The client deemed his first try, wrapped in pink satin, “too showy.” James preferred the next two, realized in 1938 by London decorators Green & Abbott in red and green felt with black fringe. The pair—one is at the V&A; the other failed to sell at Christie’s in June—were made for Monkton House in West Sussex, a classical Edwin Lutyens mansion that James recast as…

ad visits into the woods

When Manhattanites are looking for a weekend home, they typically go one of two directions: Jump into the high-octane social swirl of the Hamptons or head for the hills upstate. Born and bred in the former camp, Evan Yurman wanted a little quiet escapism when the time came to plant roots of his own. “There are a lot of people that you know here,” the chief creative officer of David Yurman says of the historically artistic Catskill Mountains where he and his wife, Ku-Ling, retreat with their three children. “But you never see them.” The couple spent years house-hunting before they happened upon the perfect spot: an old bluestone quarry (Evan quips that it wasn’t a very productive one) perched on the side of a mountain with nearly 200 acres unfolding…

blanket statements

When Charlotte Macaux Perelman and Alexis Fabry, artistic directors of Hermès Home, paid a studio visit to Milan-based artist and designer Nathalie Du Pasquier, they fell in love with a series of collages and drawings inspired by simple embroidery techniques. “They immediately understood that it was possible to transpose those ideas onto throws,” says Du Pasquier, the French-born founding member of the Memphis Group whose graphic compositions have been applied to a range of mediums, from textiles and furniture to painting and sculpture. In no time, she scaled the works on paper up to blanket size (55˝ x 79˝) and had them sent off to India, where master artisans have turned her creations into two handmade Mongolian-cashmere patchworks, one glistening with tiny beads. Now highlights of Hermès’s new home collection,…
