guy friends

I’ve always had close male friends. I think it’s because I went to co-ed schools all my life. Guy friends. Girl friends. It didn’t matter when we were younger. The cool thing about having guy friends is that they helped us carry our overstuffed schoolbags, they battled the throngs to get us food at the school canteen, they drove us around even before they had driver’s licenses. When I got older it became more complicated. Because when my guy friends got girlfriends, some of the women were not very secure, and they pushed us away. Fortunately the more confident girlfriends, and later wives, happily welcomed us as friends, and these friendships have only gotten stronger over the years. One of my dearest guy friends, Rich Grau, moved home from New York last…

NINA YASHAR Nilufar, the influential Milan design gallery founded by Yashar (left), was the perfect backdrop for “ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY”, a fashion feature styled by her childhood friend, U.S. T&C creative director at large Nicoletta Santoro (right). Yashar describes her aesthetic as “interconceptual, multicultural, and unpredictable.” IAN SANTOS “Losing someone most dear in the family changed my perspective somehow and made me appreciate what really matters in life,” shares Ian, whose father passed away from cancer in February. “I’ve been doing a bit of soul-searching and I’m hoping to finish a body of work for an exhibit at the end of the year.” A photographer and entrepreneur, Ian drew inspiration from his recent trip to Iceland for his most recent exhibit at Art in the Park last April. In this issue he photographs a…

1 IT’S ABOUT TIME The last time the works of Spanish-Filipino artist Fernando Zóbel (1924-1984) were shown at the Venice Biennale, they were on display at the Spanish Pavilion, in 1962. Five and a half decades later, Zóbel has posthumously received the opportunity to represent the land of his birth, as the Ayala Foundation and the Ayala Museum mount “Fernando Zóbel. Contrapuntos” on the invitation of La Biennale di Venezia’s organizing committee. The exhibit is curated by Ditas R. Samson, senior curator and head of research and publications of the Ayala Museum, and Madrid-based artist Guillermo Paneque. “This initiative is in keeping with Ayala Museum’s longstanding commitment to sustain interest and offer fresh perspectives in viewing and interpreting the artist’s works,” remarked Mariles Gustilo, senior director of the Arts and Culture…

milanese masterpiece

It’s half past five and a remarkable sunset is lighting up the expansive dining room at Paper Moon, the first Asian outpost of the landmark Milan establishment. Through the tall wall of windows that stretch from one side of the restaurant to the other, the warm afternoon sun softens and soothes. It is only a matter of minutes before the million-dollar view will transform from calm dusk to an energy charged panorama of flickering lights that make up the city skyline. Sitting 66 stories high, on the very top of the Knightsbridge Residences in Century City, the mood has been set, and, although one could sit for hours at the cozy corner bar sipping an Aperol spritz, Campari soda, or a glass of prosecco, one ultimately comes to Paper Moon…

One of Tod’s major events in 2017 wasn’t a debut of a season’s collection, but the presentation of a new collectible tome. Entitled Timeless Icons, the latest book from the Italian luxury leather goods label assembles some of the world’s most famous trendsetters in a rare collection of portraits. Launched at the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea in Milan and at the Tod’s flagship boutique on Omotesando in Tokyo, the book salutes style mavens past and present, from Hollywood and beyond. Featured in its pages are models, socialites, and celebrities from various decades, from two of the highest paid models in the 1960s, Veruschka and Marisa Schiaparelli Berenson, ’80s golden girl Lauren Hutton, to a more current crop of red carpet crowdpleasers such as Gisele Bündchen, Cate Blanchett, and Gigi Hadid.
