The uptown ladies!’ And the reality is, I’ve always been a downtown boy.”—Michael KorsI’ve known Michael Kors for a long time. He is without a doubt one of my favorite New Yorkers—witty and warm, supremely talented, and one of our city’s most generous philanthropists. I can attest to the truth of the quote above, taken from our cover story. In my first job fresh out of college, at HG (House & Garden magazine),…

1. AN ABYSS TABLE IN THE PARIS HOME OF PIERRE PASSEBON.2. BONETTI IN HIS STUDIO. 3. A BLUE VERSION. 4. A RED-AND-GOLD ABYSS IN DAVID GILL AND FRANCIS SULTANA’S MALTESE PALAZZO.The main idea was to make a piece of sculpture,” says Paris-based designer Mattia Bonetti of the fantastical dining table he dreamed up in 2003. “I was imagining something telluric, from an abyss under the surface of the sea or in a very deep cave. Trees, corals, bubbling volcanoes—all these shapes together become a table, et voilà!” Fittingly, he named it Abyss.Sheet steel, because of its ability to be rendered perfectly flat, was used for the surface, while the baroque base was cast in bronze. Then, to achieve the glossy, electric hues in his imagination, Bonetti called upon a cousin,…

1. LIMITED-EDITION CERAMIC VASE PRODUCED AT BITOSSI.2. WATKINS IN HER ROME STUDIO. 3. A HAND-PAINTED PLATE.When Liselotte Watkins—whose fashion illustrations have been turned into Marimekko prints, Valextra presentations, and Prada bags—moved to Rome in 2015, she fell in love with the city’s rich history of craft. “It was difficult not to get swept up in it,” says the Swedish artist, who soon began painting abstract figures on found pottery. New examples from this series debut at Stockholm’s CFHILL gallery in late August. And come September, she’ll unveil decal-decorated vessels cast at Bitossi’s ceramics factory in Florence. “I made this small army of women,” she explains of the limited-edition collection’s inspiration—the strong Italian women she spots every day. “There are enough men in the world.” worldofwatkins.comBOTTOM PORTRAIT: HELENIO BARBETTA; PRODUCTS: HENRIK…

To fashion means to construct or fabricate something, and Rogan Gregory has been busy doing just that. After getting his start designing clothing—first with his denim line Rogan, then with the environmentally focused label Loomstate—the artist has bravely switched paths, devoting the past three years to creating tables, lighting, and other striking objects, some as small as a two-inch bronze talon. As it turns out, his experience in the fashion business has eased the transition. “I do functional pieces, but I have the freedom to do pure sculpture too,” says the soft-spoken and resplendently bearded Gregory, whose latest creations go on view at Manhattan’s R & Co. gallery this September. “When I did clothing, it was the same thing: Sometimes you’re doing jeans and T-shirts, but other times you can…

1. HÉLÈNE ROCHAS’S BEDROOM, DECORATED BY GEORGES GEFFROY.2. MAUREEN FOOTER’S NEW BOOK.3. DIOR’S SHOE BOUTIQUE IN THE 1950s.4. VICTOR GRANDPIERRE’S LIVING ROOM FOR LILIA RALLI.To hear Maureen Footer tell it, Paris in the late 1940s mirrors America of late. “Society was polarized, people felt like they were losing their identities, and outside influences threatened what was considered the French way of life,” the style historian says on the eve of publishing her new book, Dior and His Decorators: Victor Grandpierre, Georges Geffroy, and the New Look (The Vendome Press, $60). But instead of snarking on Twitter, she continues, couturier Christian Dior and two friends—the charming Grandpierre, a former photographer; the melancholic Geffroy, an ex–fashion designer—went about making French classicism great again, though they stirred in English furniture, Finnish carpets, and…
