editor’s letter

So hello. I’m the new guy. And it’s a real honor—and an even greater pleasure—for me to be here, in New York, as the new editor in chief of Robb Report. I’ve been coming to this city regularly for 20 years, so when I got an e-mail asking if I would like to be considered for the role, the chance to live and work here was just too good to turn down. Cut to five months later, and my wife and one-year-old son and I have taken up residence, legal aliens in the land of the free. But I feel like I’ve been in the Robb family for a little while: I was the founding editor of the British edition of Robb Report some years ago and have spent much of…

perfect 10

1 SINGULAR VISION HUSQVARNA VITPILEN 701 “Vitpilen is Swedish for ‘white arrow,’ and in this case that arrow is a thoroughly modern motorcycle from a company with 115 years of history. It’s a naked bike that is functional, practical, and made for purists like me. It doesn’t get any more elemental than putting a liquid-cooled, 700 cc single-cylinder engine into a lightweight trellis frame. Such simplicity in a world of needless complexity has genuine appeal.” —ROBERT ROSS 2 CLOSE ENCOUNTERS HOMO FABER EXHIBITION “Even Virgos need a day off, and mine will be spent in Venice, where the Michelangelo Foundation presents Homo Faber: Crafting a More Human Future (September 14–30). This showcase is all about live artisan demonstrations, where everything from European jewelry and lace-making to art restoration, woodworking, and the secrets of bespoke bicycles…

creative class

If you have been to a sophisticated restaurant or luxury hotel or visited a theater production or public space in the last 30 years, then you know David Rockwell. Innovator and architect, he has perfected a rare kind of cultural resonance, creating spaces that pulse with narrative and purpose but don’t rely on surface-level dramatics. From high-end residences to retail settings, the effect is layered and indelible. To that end, he’s both a collector and curator of experience: “Much like a play, where you’re collaborating with a group of people to create this intense memory for an audience, for me, design is about creating memories. When I go around the world, what I’m collecting is different things that create these memories—and that becomes like a bank of things we can…

masters of the cartier house

While technological advancements have infiltrated nearly every aspect of manufacturing, it seems time stands still inside the secretive hallways of Cartier’s artisan workshop located above its glamorous Parisian flagship store on Rue de la Paix. Here, in the atelier that Jacques Cartier established in 1929, 50 highly skilled jewelers rely only on their hands to transform stones and metal into imaginative, artistic, and graceful jewelry. This is where Cartier creates its haute joaillerie, or high jewelry—considered the brand’s most exceptional and elaborate pieces of art—using techniques and tools that have been applied to jewelry making for centuries. It can take weeks, months, and even years to collect the perfect stones and execute a single piece, and that is why only about 80 jewelry designs were made for this year’s Coloratura…
