—I recall a staggering survey, published several years ago, in which the authors posited confidently that, in less than a hundred years’ time, the majority of people will have no idea who Marilyn Monroe was, incidentally the greatest icon of the 20th century. If this prophecy were shown to be true, we will have reached the peak of a phenomenon that is already making headway and appears to be unstoppable: in other words, an indifference to the past never before witnessed throughout History. A past that has been eradicated by a merciless cult of the almighty here and now. How then can we not be concerned about this, when we know only too well that turning our backs on the past would be tantamount to drawing a line under memory; under history,…

halston revival

—During his flamboyant glory years in the mid–70s, American designer Roy Halston Frowick would host the great and the goofy in his gigantic New York apartment spread over two floors. The 101, as it was known, was the place to be until the city that never sleeps succumbed to the advent of yuppies and gentrification. His mega soirées where drugs were rife were notorious. Where else would you find Martin Scorsese arriving with Liza Minnelli on his arm, putting in an order for every illicit substance imaginable?

No end of sartorially inclined stars have crossed the emporium’s threshold in search of the perfect cut, personalised to their exact desires, in what is always a unique experience. The likes of Coco Chanel, Henry Kissinger, Gregory Peck, David Bowie, Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, “even Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs”, Carey adds. “Considering they had both access to the best ateliers and the finest tailors in the world, the fact they chose Huntsman speaks volumes.” But what…

a breath of fresh air

PUNCHY Dominique Ropion has extracted the filtrate of Y — a benchmark for clear–dark fougere. The result packs a punch, with a duel between vibrant lavender and opaque cedar notes. The subtle difference: its ingredients have been deconstructed and reconstructed to extract the very quintessence. The heart of lavender diva, for example, comes from flowers and stems that were first distilled into vapour with the essence then split using CO2. Y LE PARFUM, YVES SAINT LAURENT BÉAUTE 60 ML, €89 ICONIC As the olfactory incarnation of the mythical colour, Gris Dior was always going to be as floral as the eponymous creator’s tastes. This elegant scent opens with peppy notes before smoothing off into a floral wave characteristic of its great cypress predecessors. The subtle difference: the box features a tropical bestiary…
