conquering the comfort zone

The hot pink dress was one of the best mistakes I ever made. I was a newly minted fashion editor in my 20s, and although I’d only been to New York once, on a field trip in tenth grade, I now was scrambling through the city toward my first runway show. Everyone seemed very sophisticated and on task, and I had the confidence of a kindergartner in this uncharted territory. I entered Calvin Klein’s showroom, a little wobbly from jogging in heels, and that’s when I saw it: The Wall of Black Clothes. Before me were bleacher-style rows packed with the fashion press, and everyone from floor to ceiling was clad in one color. They were all fabulously noir, and I was, well, not. I prayed that my seat would be nearby,…

chairman of the board

Every day, Jake Jones scours the internet for used surfboards. But he’s not heading to the beach—he’s heading to his driveway. That’s where the graphic designer transforms beat-up boards into bold works of art. “The most challenging part is removing the fiberglass,” he says. “There’s a lot of dust and noise. But once I get my palette ready to go, I’m excited to start carving. I really like the idea of bringing things back to life.” A California native who’s always been around water (“my parents were hippies,” he jokes), Jones moved to Naples in 1989 and worked as a newspaper illustrator. “I’ve done computer art for a long time, but this lets me get my hands dirty and takes me back to my roots as an artist.” The father of two, who…

cuff love

Fashion icon Coco Chanel, who fancied tailored suits over flapper dresses, wasn’t fond of the diamond and Art Deco baubles of the 1920s, so she did what any woman would do—she turned to a titled nobleman to solve the problem. “She thought jewelry from that decade was too much, and she wanted something that was stylish yet wearable,” says Jim Haag, vice president and managing director of Verdura. “It was in the early 1930s, and she was looking for a new style to go with her suits. She’d hired Duke Fulco di Verdura to attract clients, and the two of them were inspired by medals that soldiers wore when they returned from World War I—the gold, the intense colors, the Maltese cross designs.” The jewelry designer, born into Sicilian aristocracy, came to…

flair for hair and skin care

When people are running errands around Naples and bump into Philip Douglas and Doug Olsen, they typically say the same thing: “Please don’t look at my hair,” Olsen says, laughing. “Then they start asking questions.” Those questions, says Olsen, director of marketing and public relations for Philip Douglas Beauty, are the basis of the partners’ recently released book, Look & Feel Like a Star: Hair & Beauty Insights from Celebrity Stylists. There are also chapters on skin care, weight loss, alternative health, and mainstream medicine written by other specialists. “Naples has a relaxed sophistication—a mix between casual and dressy,” says Olsen, a New York native who transferred to Fort Lauderdale in 1990 through a job with Elizabeth Arden. Douglas, meanwhile, grew up in Massachusetts and owned a salon in Boston. The pair…
