TAKING OFF

IN THIS EDITION OF NETJETS, THE MAGAZINE, our editors have put together an issue

of the tailored, the elegant, and the beautiful. The amazing story of true automotive

customization from entrepreneur and NetJets Owner Dany Bahar, who discovered

the need for his latest venture in an intriguing twist of fate. Then we turn to the next

generation of tailoring talent, creating detailed designs for clients tired of work-from-home

ultracasual apparel. And we travel to Rome to experience the boom in exceptional new

hotels and restaurants in the Eternal City—each catering to unparalleled service, something we

pride ourselves on here at NetJets.

As we enjoy the warm welcome of a new season, we hope you are experiencing the very best

the world has to offer—whether adventures close to home or trips across the globe.

Only NetJets!

question arises for visitors to

years to complete, is a good

candidate to be one of the

SCENES FROM “CITY”

Every corner of the astonishing

work (below and previous page)

by Michael Heizer (above)

presents a new perspective.

is now known as Land Art,

along with Nancy Holt, Robert

Smithson, Richard Long and,

perhaps most famously, Christo

and Jeanne-Claude. The works

of all these artists involve the

earth itself as a part of the

piece, whether it is excavating

and reshaping the soil or

framing the landscape in a

novel way.

The pieces are often jawdropping

in scale—and the

newly opened work by Heizer

in the American desert, “City,”

is no exception, stretching 1.5

miles by 0.5 miles, an expanse

that is best appreciated from

an airplane but is intended to

be experienced on the ground.

TODD HEISLER / THE NEWYORKTIMES / REDUX / LAIF

As such, it unfolds slowly as

you pace through the imposing

site, continually surprised by its

angular concrete constructions

and mammoth earthforms that

evoke both ancient ceremonies

and modern metropolises.

Both the historic and the

contemporary resonances are

intentional here, just as

they are at other Land Art

masterpieces: The shadow

of conceptual art, which also

developed in the 1960s, looms

large over the movement

and the resulting conceptual

sophistication adds depth

to the visceral experience

of the works. Questions of

mortality, of Sisyphean futility

and, naturally, of legacy all

intermix—and you can’t fail

to appreciate, here in the

middle of the high desert of

Basin and Range National

Monument, why this massive

creation might outlive most

of our contemporary feats of

architecture.

The American West has long

been a popular home for these

creations of otherworldly scale,

from Robert Smithson’s iconic

“Spiral Jetty” (1970) near the

Great Salt Lake in Utah to light

artist James Turrell’s “Roden

Crater” in Arizona, which he

began in the 1970s and is still

ongoing, though the two-milewide

crater is only sometimes

accessible to the public (and,

in 2019, to Kanye West, who

filmed an IMAX-format music

video there). But America is

not the only setting where a

sense of our infinitesimality is

apt, and such works have been

proliferating in recent years in

places like Patagonia and the

Australian Outback.

Most recently, a new site

has been announced for a

series of huge projects: AlUla

in Saudi Arabia, where the

new Valley of the Arts will be

home to five new permanent

installations in the next two

years, including a work by

Heizer and another by Turrell.

Will it become the world’s

largest sculpture park, a

supersized version of the

soul-stirring Château La Coste

in Provence? Or will it be

something closer to a sculpture

graveyard, as a few of the

trendy art parks are sadly

becoming?

Impossible to say now—but

one thing is clear: largescale

outdoor art is here to

stay, and Heizer’s “City” will

almost certainly outlast us all.

The inexorable rise of ebikes continues apace with perhaps the greatest strides taking place in the

production of those improving transit around urban areas. The Brompton Electric P Line (1, brompton.

portability, with an innovative dual-locking seat post, means you can steer the folded bike by the

saddle. Further east, Taiwanese brand Tern (2, ternbicycles.com) has produced the NBD, with its

long-step-thru frame and low center of gravity making it an ideal getaround. And across the Atlantic,

Texas’s Denago (3, denago.com) has created the Commute 1, widely regarded as one of the best

ebikes around for navigating the busy city streets in style and ease.

“A vehicle that’s all about leisure and

pleasure,” says Steve Morris, executive

chairman of Morgan, the British

manufacturer of the new Super 3. The

three-wheeler is a throwback to a more

carefree era, though the engineering

is of the highest contemporary

quality, with a Dragon inline engine,

monocoque body, and a five-speed

manual gearbox. Pitched to appeal to

curious motorcyclists and sports car

lovers wanting something a bit more

“fun,” the retro look is a sign of things

to come, with other manufacturers

such as Liberty Motors, Vanderhall,

and Polaris in the U.S. also playing

their part in the rebirth of the threewheeler.

The range—which includes large check-in

embodies the Globe-Trotter aesthetic, which

remains true to the principles laid out at

its founding in 1897, yet takes inspiration

Casablanca, “Le Monde Diplomatique,”

a homage to the world of jet-set travel.

DRIVING EXCITEMENT

The view over Tabac corner in Monaco, above, was just

one of the highlights of NetJets’ F1 events this summer.

This year, NetJets supported the Formula

One (F1) races in Miami and Monaco.

The Miami Grand Prix, the first F1 race in

Miami, was held on May 8. A total of 500

guests attended our Owner event. The night

before the race, Grammy-winning duo The

Chainsmokers performed at the event, and

former F1 driver and current commentator

for Sky Sports David Coulthard and English

professional golfer Ian Poulter were in

attendance for a Q&A session.

The final week of May saw the most

highly anticipated event in the F1 calendar

return to the Circuit de Monaco. After two

years with no spectators because of the

pandemic, the Monaco Grand Prix saw

excited guests crowding into the bustling

principality. As usual, we provided our

Owners with the best seats in the house—

the NetJets roof terrace overlooking the

12th corner, Tabac. In total, we welcomed

238 guests across the weekend and flew

51 legs equivalent to 96.7 flight hours—or

four straight days in the air.

CREWMEMBERS IN PROFILE

MIKE WITHORN

Flight Attendant

MY FIRST EXPOSURE TO FLYING WAS …

when I was 14 or 15 years old. I went to visit

my brother who was in the Air Force in New

Mexico. When I graduated high school, I moved

to Naples, Florida, and became a ticket agent for

Bar Harbor Airlines. I fell in love with fl ying and

was hired as a fl ight attendant for Northwest

Airlines in 1989.

THE BEST PART OF FLYING IS … seeing the

world and getting paid to do it. In my 30-plus

years in this work, it is still my favorite part and

the opportunity I most appreciate.

BEFORE JOINING THE NETJETS TEAM, I

WAS … fl ying for Northwest Airlines as an

international fl ight attendant and purser,

managing all in-fl ight details. I worked there

for 18 years and frequently took trips to China,

Japan, Europe, and India.

THE ONE DAY AT NETJETS I WON’T FORGET

WAS … the Monday I received the phone call

offering me a position as a NetJets international

fl ight attendant. It was two weeks after I’d

applied, and I thought my interview went

horribly. So, I was thrilled—and relieved—that I

got the offer. Within two weeks of that call, I was

welcomed to new hire orientation.

ONE THING OWNERS PROBABLY WOULDN’T

GUESS ABOUT ME IS … I am a commercial,

multi-engine, instrument-rated pilot and am

planning to transition to a NetJets pilot without

severing employment.

ON MY DAYS OFF … you’ll fi nd me at the

airport. I instruct in a Cessna 172 at both

Naples and Immokalee airports and manage a

Piper PA-32 Cherokee Six for a private owner.

I am a First Offi cer on a Cessna Citation 550 for

medevac fl ights, and my wife and I volunteer

our time to fl y for Pilots N Paws, taking rescue

animals to new homes. In addition, I am

working on gaining enough hours to become a

NetJets pilot.

WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS, I WOULD

LIKE TO … be in the pilot seat of a NetJets

aircraft—and I should reach that goal within

the next six months to a year. I have loved

my career as a fl ight attendant and, now,

my ultimate goal is to co-pilot for NetJets

with my son, who is currently working on his

pilot licenses.

MY BEST ADVICE FOR STAYING SANE

ACROSS TIME ZONES IS … listen to your

body. It tells you when to sleep. Get out and

explore the places you’re visiting. The world

is different everywhere, so try to get together

with colleagues and learn about other cultures—

it really brings us all together.

OWNER’S PROFILE

From Red Bull to Ferrari to Lotus, Dany Bahar has been a force for

change in the automotive world, and yet his coachbuilding company,

Ares, may be his most ambitious undertaking. // By Josh Sims

ONE

OF A KIND

YOU CAN IMAGINE the look on his face. A Saudi prince is the proud

owner of a $2.5 million Bugatti. He’s enjoying lunch in Monaco.

And then guess what pulls up outside the restaurant? A virtually

identical $2.5 milllion Bugatti. Fortunately, Dany Bahar was there

to provide a solution.

“He looks at me and just tosses the car keys across the table

and tells me to do whatever I need to do to make his car unique,”

recalls Bahar. In doing so, he became Bahar’s first customer. And

a rather good one, as he has since put a “double-digit number” of

cars a year through the entrepreneur’s services.

“If he hadn’t seen that other Bugatti maybe it would never have

occurred to him just how much he actually wanted something

unique—that what is, in most cases, the pure, theoretical idea that

someone else just might be able to buy the same vehicle as him [is

enough of an incentive to pursue that individuality],” Bahar adds.

What Bahar does, through his Modena, Italy-based company

Ares, which he co-founded with business consultant Waleed Al

Ghafari just eight years ago, is take a vehicle and remodel it as

a true one-off. Clients come with their seemingly run-of-the-mill

Ferrari, Bentley, or Rolls-Royce—automobiles that, in the more

everyday world, would already be considered extremely special—

and often with specific ideas as to how to make it utterly special.

That might amount to a reworked interior scheme or it might

involve something much more fundamental: turning a sedan into a

coupe, for example, converting a fixed roof into a convertible one,

or changing the entire profile of the vehicle.

“Actually I’m not really a car guy myself, not a petrolhead,”

says Bahar, who nonetheless spent a couple years at Ferrari as its

senior vice president for commercial and brand before leaving—

something hardly anyone at Ferrari ever does—to become CEO of

Lotus. Perhaps he is, at heart, more of a brand-builder: He made

his name in the business world with considerably smaller wheels,

helping to make inline skating the global phenomenon, if a fleeting

one, that it became, before moving on to Red Bull, where, as

its chief operating officer for four years, he was instrumental in

launching its Formula One racing team.

“What I learned [from both experiences] was how important

emotional content is to any product, how powerful that can be,”

enthuses Bahar, who’s more an ice-hockey player than an inline

skater, and who, one imagines, has enough get-up-and-go in his

veins to bypass energy drinks. But perhaps both brands attuned

him to the needs of younger people—and what the “Me Generation”

wants, more and more, is something that’s all about them.

Indeed, the falling age profile of the very wealthy isn’t something

all manufacturers of luxury products have yet grasped, he contends.

It was Bahar who battled with Ferrari’s dominant engineering

culture to get the company to launch vehicles that worked with

the lifestyle needs of the young and wealthy, not just to provide

excellence in mechanics.

“Ferrari was becoming an old man’s car, an attribute that

[younger consumers] wouldn’t want to be associated with. I

think I was able to change that a lot while I was there, and

start to do some really cool things,” says Bahar, a Turkish-born

Swiss, now based in Dubai. “But I also met so much resistance

to that idea. I remember having this 1.5-hour-long meeting with

the CEO, who’s a dear friend, and at the end he said ‘Dany,

I didn’t understand anything you said, but it sounded good.’”

He continues: “To give a stupid example, it was as simple as

putting in cup-holders. Ferrari saw no engineering reason to

have them. But even a Ferrari needs a cupholder. The Ferrari

California was the first ever Ferrari for which the initial briefing

came from the commercial department, which had an eye to

fulfilling the needs of the customer [not finding a customer to

meet whatever the company built].”

And there are more and more of these customers, a new

demographic for whom lifestyle concerns are paramount, and,

increasingly, customization is king. That, Bahar concedes, is not

an original idea per se. “Modding” is now well-established within

the watch world, and luxury car makers, Ferrari included, have

long run programs that allow buyers to select, say, a particular

paintwork finish or seating leather. Many high-end car makers

also have decades-long relationships with famed coachbuilders

like Pininfarina or Zagato, each bringing their vision to exceptional

versions of production vehicles.

What’s new, arguably, is elevating it to the Ares level: The

customer ends up with their Bugatti looking like no other, complete

with all road-worthiness certifications and registrations. And

that’s possible because Ares will do what the bigger names of

the luxury automotive world could do—on paper—but can’t or

won’t do in actuality because the necessary disruption to their

production processes is just too costly and too complex. These

massive companies will, Bahar reckons, only ever be able to offer

CHANGING MINDS

standards for customized vehicles.

OWNER’S PROFILE

customization lite. In other words, Ares is filling a “market

niche”—no, Bahar pauses to correct himself, make that

“ultra, ultra niche.”

“In principle, no manufacturer really likes another

company messing with its cars,” Bahar laughs, though

the likes of Bentley and Volvo have already approached

Ares to take on some special projects they’re too big to

fulfil. Besides, he suggests, like it or not, for some of

their customers, this is the future.

“Even back at Ferrari and Lotus I felt that, while the

product is important, it’s individualization that’s even

more important, and that it’s only a matter of time

before the possibilities of individualization will come

to every kind of luxury item on sale today,” reckons

Bahar. “You can see that the customization business has

made huge progress over just the last few years, that

the personalization you got a century ago from having

a bespoke suit made just for you will be seen in many

other products, too. It’s all about having a product your

neighbor doesn’t have.”

Critics might worry that this is a reductive view of

what’s driving customers—one-upmanship, swagger,

boastfulness—but Bahar suggests it’s precisely the

reassurance that you have what nobody else has that is

the motivating force for, maybe, half of his clients. And

it’s all the more pertinent given that, as he suggests,

the likes of a Ferrari doesn’t have the cachet it once did.

After all, these days it’s within the pocket of a top lawyer

or doctor.

“You may, if you’re fortunate enough to have the

money to do so, select your paint color, or whatever,

at the likes of Rolls-Royce, but there’s nothing to stop

someone else selecting the same paint color. And, fair

enough, that’s going to annoy you if you’ve spent a

million on a car and 5,000 people turn out to have the

same,” says Bahar. “The fact is that the more people

there are who can buy a $2.5 million Bugatti, the more

it’s a precondition that it has to be unique.”

Remarkably, he has found that the wealthier an

Ares’ client is, the less interest he—and it’s usually a

he—has in the mechanics of his vehicle, even though,

thanks to massive consolidation within the car industry,

many parts are common to vehicles up and down the

price spectrum. That’s not just because some of Bahar’s

clients already have hundreds of cars in a very big garage

somewhere. It’s because what provides them with the

additional value is the look and the feel of their car. “It’s

very particular. You might even call these people nerds,”

Bahar laughs.

That can lead to some very particular results, too.

If you’re selling a client on the carte blanche they will

have to produce a car just as they want it, there’s no

scope to quibble with their taste. You have to respect that

taste is—thankfully—not universal, not cross-cultural.

Bahar also recalls the frustrations his design department

experienced with a new project that could barely get

started for the client making one minute change after

another—and that was just to the steering wheel. Why

all the fuss about such an insignificant part of the car,

they wondered?

“I called the client and he said, ‘Look Dany, it might

not have occurred to you but when you’re driving a

car all you’re doing really is holding this one piece in

your hands. That makes the steering wheel the most

important part of the car, the part that has to be the

most beautiful. I can’t see the car from the outside when

I’m sitting in it. So I’ll spend all the time I need until the

steering wheel is perfect,’” Bahar recalls. “And I thought,

‘Yeah, he’s right.’ It’s all a question of what’s important to

you. Each detail typically has a story behind it. It’s that

emotional element again. I think understanding that is

why people come to us, because really we have no track

record to speak of yet. I think that’s why people come

back to us over and over again, too.”

Yet providing a service that can pay that level of

attention to detail doesn’t necessarily make for a longterm

growth business, especially given the realities of

contemporary geopolitics, even if the very, very topend

may be largely insulated from most events. Bahar

stresses that Ares’ customization service is, almost by

definition, limited in its growth: “You could produce

a thousand [specialist] cars per year and you’d be a

tiny, tiny company [in the automotive world]—and

we’re producing 50,” he says. But he also believes the

company has some way to go to reach what he calls “the

exclusivity limit.” He puts this at between 300 and 500

cars per annum, just few enough that what Ares does

will remain super-exclusive.

All the same, much as Pininfarina, after decades

focusing on design for third parties, has recently returned

to manufacturing its own cars, so Ares has now pressed

ahead with the launch of its own range of vehicles,

including its impressive S1 Project supercar. The first

production run of 77 was successfully pre-sold and will

be delivered this year. It has its own SUV in the pipeline

for 2023, and it’s also, somewhat incongruously,

planning an electric compact city car, bicycle, and

scooter. Manufacturing is, Bahar agrees, a very different

proposition from customization, but he’d rather Ares

stood on multiple pillars than become dependent on

one. Ares, he says, is moving away from being a service

provider and towards being a brand in its own right.

Certainly, he’s already thinking like a manufacturer. Has

any buyer of the S1 tried to put their new car through

Ares’ bespoke process?

“No,” says Bahar, “and, answering like all the big

manufacturers would, I hope it never comes to that.”

And at least this time it’s on his terms. Bahar might

well have been put off car manufacturing for life,

following his experience at Lotus. Brought in to rescue an

ailing brand, he went at it full throttle, upping its glamour

quotient by signing up Kate Moss, launching five new

models in one year (something the car industry just

doesn’t do) and then being fired by new owners in a hail

of accusations of financial impropriety, legal battles and,

finally, a settlement out of court.

“It’s all a question of what’s important

to you. Each detail has a story behind it.”

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

as a Bentley.

ALL IMAGES COURTESY ARES DESIGN

“Each and every experience gives you an opportunity

to learn, and from Lotus I learned a lot about loyalty,

teamwork, the corporate world, and how you should get

absolutely everything in writing,” Bahar laughs. “But, you

know, it’s fine. I’m a pragmatic person and accept that

every life has its ups and downs. I won’t make the same

mistakes again. That said, whoever knows me, whoever

works with me, knows that I like to achieve goals in less

time than might be expected. There’s no rush really. It’s

just what drives me. I mean, why take things slower if

you can do them faster?”

That’s an apt question for the world of Ares, with

its 0-60 in three seconds culture and its exasperated

princes. At Ferrari, Bahar recalls, it was standard—as it

remains for most automotive manufacturing—for a new

car to move from drawing board to production in around

four or five years. “But we’re not at Ferrari here, we’re not

at Aston Martin,” he exclaims. “Here, there’s no reason

why we can’t do that in a year, a year-and-a-half. And

we’ve shown now that this is possible if you have good

processes and project management.”

In the long run, might Ares’ more important

contribution be to bring an overhaul of approaches to

luxury car production rather than for car customization?

After all, Bahar claims that Ares is already the world’s

largest coachbuilding company, both by turnover

and number of projects. Within the next five years he

expects it to be manufacturing around 400 of its own

cars every year. It’s an ambitious goal, but Bahar has

experience with doubters. When bankers and private

equity managers told him that it would be impossible

to achieve his proposed business plan within Ares’ first

five years, he decided to do it, and go beyond it, in four

years. And he did.

“It’s just the satisfaction of saying, ‘There, in your

face!’” he says with a knowing smile. aresdesign.com

GREAT

PLAINS

The new must-play course from hotshot

American golf design firm King-Collins

is a true stunner spread across a vast

parcel of former farmland in Nebraska.

// By Larry Olmsted

IT HAS ONLY BEEN a little over three years since Golf Magazine

named little-known architect Rob Collins “The Next Big Thing” in

golf course design, but it is looking like its crystal ball was spot on.

The young star in the making partnered with construction manager

Tad King to create King-Collins Golf Course Design & Construction,

a boutique fi rm that handles every step from site evaluation to

design to building the course. Most uniquely, they became the fi rst

notable designers ever to hit it out of the ballpark and make their

reputation with a nine-hole course, Tennessee’s Sweetens Cove.

Despite its small size, the course has gained cult-like status, drawn

favorable comparisons to the Alister MacKenzie-Bobby Jones

masterpiece Augusta National, and landed on Golfweek’s Top 100

list as the 21st Best Public Course in the U.S.—the only nine-holer

on that vaunted ranking.

Since Sweetens Cove, King and Collins have been swamped

with requests for their work and have projects under way in Texas,

New York, Mississippi, and more in Tennessee, but the next big

thing—in a very literal sense—is in one of golf’s less heralded

destinations, Nebraska. Here, in the extreme northeast corner of the

state—the closest “big city” is not even in Nebraska, it’s Sioux City,

Iowa, about 15 miles away—is a big chunk of agricultural land that

has been farmed by the Andersen family for four generations. The

Andersens are of Danish descent and proud of it, and own a local

nine-hole routing called Old Dane, but wanted to do a lot more in

terms of golf, so they hired King-Collins and gave

it the run of 580 acres that have laid fallow for

two decades. The result is the Landmand (Danish

for farmer) course, a 7,200-yard, par-73 stunner,

which opened for play on September 3—one of

the highest-profile openings in the world this year.

If Sweetens Cove shocked with its small

stature, the opposite is the case at Landmand,

where everything is much larger than life. The

course site is about four times the average for

18 holes, with a whopping 84 acres of turf

between tees and the gigantic green complexes.

That would suggest ample landing areas, and,

to a degree, that is true, but players will have

to navigate a maelstrom of bunkers, totaling

almost four sand-strewn acres in all. The greens

are among the largest most golfers will have ever

seen, amounting to nearly six and a half acres

unto themselves. The largest is the signature

17th, a tribute to MacKenzie’s infamous,

legendary, and now vanished Sitwell Park green,

an enormous and extravagantly contoured green

he built at an otherwise pedestrian course in

England, with a drop so steep it is often described

as a waterfall. The long extinct green has become

a mantra of sorts in the currently hot retro-golf

architecture circles, led by the likes of Tom Doak,

Gil Hanse, and Kyle Franz, among others. Collins’

Sitwell take here in Nebraska farm country covers

more than 30,000 square feet for just one pin. In

comparison, the famed enormous double green

at St. Andrews Old Course, for the fifth and 13th

holes, is over 37,000 square feet. There are four

greens at Landmand in excess of 25,000 square

feet—more than four times the size of the average

putting surface on the major professional tours

(around 6,000). Collins is clearly influenced by

the early architecture of the British Isles, with

fairways meant to play firm and fast in the hot,

dry Nebraska summers and additional homages

to the classic punchbowl and redan greens.

So Landmand requires length off the tee

and gives room to play, but both fairway and

greenside bunker shots will be a vital part of any

visitor’s round, and two-putts may be rare, while

four- and five-putts won’t surprise. What will

surprise is the beauty and magnificence of the

land itself, which was cleared of trees decades

ago for farming, yet is hardly the flat cornfields

Nebraska is famous for, but rather a series of

valleys bisected by prominent ridges, offering

constantly impressive 360-degree panoramic

views but also creating a natural optical illusion

that makes it hard to judge distance. Collins was

dead-set on a walkable course, and designed it

initially by walking, channeling the old-school

Old Tom Morris method employed at Scotland’s

legendary Prestwick 170 years ago when Morris

would wander about the dunes selecting the

best green sites, then find a way to connect

and play to them. As a wonderful result of this

methodology and the very generous parcel, with

no constraints for homesites or such, there are

par threes, fours, and fives of every conceivable

length, and the holes play in every possible

direction. In addition, there are some dramatic

elevation changes, as Collins let the natural flow

of the landscape and its towering ridges dictate

the routing, which, for example, led to a drivable

par-four (seven) in a short valley between ridges

followed by a climb to a short par-three up on

top of the next hill.

As Collins has written, “Prior to the Sweetens

opening, we knew we had something special

on our hands. Right now, I multiply the feeling I

had early on in my gut about Sweetens by about

1,000 and that’s how I feel about Landmand.

We cannot wait for everyone to get out there and

experience it firsthand. The pictures don’t do it

justice. You just have to go and see it for your

own self.” landmandgc.com

REST,

RECOVER,

RECHARGE

The missing link to your fitness program

may just be taking it easy. // By Jen Murphy

FOR DECADES, “No Pain, No Gain” and “Sore Today, Strong

Tomorrow” were the mantras preached by fitness instructors

and written on gym walls. We were always going hard, be it in

the gym or on the job. The events of the past two years have

caused us to take a collective pause. Suddenly, the slower pace

and work-from-home lifestyle allowed us time to embrace good

habits we’d typically skimp on—an indulgent hour-long yin

yoga class, a nutritious breakfast, 10 minutes of foam rolling

after a workout, a full eight hours of nightly rest. We never

realized we’d been running on fumes.

As the world reopened, we emerged with a new appreciation

for rest. Gyms and hotels have taken note, introducing everything

from dedicated recovery rooms equipped with self-massage tools

and compression gear, to sleep coaches and in-room meditations

to induce calm and tranquility. We still care about getting in our

steps, but we turn to the latest technology and fi tness trackers to

also help us monitor our sleep and maximize recovery.

Top athletes, such as NFL legend Tom Brady, ski champ

Mikaela Shiffrin, and tennis great Rafael Nadal, have long

known the secret to maintaining longevity while continuing

to improve performance is a balancing act. The big days of

intense workouts are carefully paired with naps, massages,

active recovery days, and smart nutrition programs. Studies

have shown rest days are essential for the body to maintain

homeostasis, or a state of balance. An intense bout of

physiological stress followed by recovery allows the body to

adapt and restore balance. Skip the rest and keep pushing, and

the body’s balance gets out of whack, increasing risk of injury

and illness.

Rest doesn’t have to mean lounging on the couch. Active

recovery can be as simple as scaling back intensity or doing

something active outdoors versus pumping iron at the gym. And

massages, once seen as an indulgence, are now viewed as selfcare.

If you’ve been giving it your all and aren’t seeing gains,

it may be time to step back and re-evaluate your routine. Here

are some easy ways to incorporate a bit more rest and recovery

into your day-to-day so you can look good but also feel good

day in and day out.

How To Know

When You Need A Break

If you’re putting in too much time at the gym, you could be doing more

harm than good. Overtraining can undo your fitness gains and make

you more susceptible to injury and illness. Samantha Campbell, owner

of Deep Relief // Peak Performance Athletic Training Center in Haiku,

Hawaii, on the island of Maui, trains some of the world’s top athletes

including big-wave surfer Ian Walsh, snowboarder Travis Rice, and

kitesurfer Jesse Richman. Here she shares insights on everything from

the importance of a rest day to how to get back to baseline.

Is there a way to measure how hard

you’re taxing your body during training

or are you really just going on how you

feel? These days gadgets like your Apple

Watch give you a readiness score. This

metric is based on heart-rate variability

(HRV), or the variance of time between

the beats of your heart. Low HRV may

indicate your body has activated your

parasympathetic nervous system, or

fi ght-or-fl ight mode, to respond to stress.

Sometimes you could write off that low

number due to having a few drinks the

night before. What’s more useful is to

look at trends over time by using HRV as

an objective number and correlating it to

subjective states like mood.

How might overtraining affect mood?

Mood swings can often be one of the fi rst

signs that something is out of whack.

Exercise is usually a mood booster,

but overtraining can lead to feelings of

grumpiness and even depression.

Are there other signs to look for?

Depending on the person, you could

notice changes in appetite and sleep

patterns. If you aren’t usually a napper

and are suddenly taking two-hour

naps in the middle of the day or if you’re

an early bird now sleeping in, those could

all be signs you might need a break.

Training puts physical stress on the

body but can outside stressors play

a factor in overtraining? Professional

athletes get to rest as part of their

job. Normal people, say training for a

triathlon or CrossFit competition, may

still work a 70-hour week. You have

to consider the total amount of stress

affecting your body, including nonathletic

stressors like work, a new baby,

or being off your sleep schedule.

How does overtraining affect

performance? If you’re unable to

perform well, even when you’re set up

to perform well, it’s a sign you need

a change. If you’re a runner and your

top speeds are going down even when

you’re rested or you’re a paddler and

you aren’t hitting your intervals in the

water, it may be because you’re doing

too much in the gym.

If you have overdone it, how do you get

back to baseline? Majorly scale back so

you go back to baseline for a week. That

doesn’t mean don’t exercise. Change

what you’re doing. If you normally do

a hilly run, do an active recovery walk.

You’re still moving and getting outside. Do

your sport, be it surfi ng or cycling, at the

most relaxing level and integrate recovery

activities like ice baths and massages.

After one week, if you feel refreshed,

slowly increase the intensity of activity.

Any tips for avoiding overtraining?

At least every two weeks take one full day

off. And for every two to three weeks of

intense training, add a week where you

bring down the volume so you can absorb

your efforts. And if you’re coming off an

illness or have been suffering from “long

Covid” symptoms, go slow.

Nutrition

Hacks

Nutrition is the often-overlooked

piece of the performance and

recovery puzzle. But with so

many options, it can be hard

to know what to eat and drink—and

when. Kate Zeratsky, a registered

dietitian and nutritionist with

the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,

Minnesota, offers insights to help

you make a game plan.

SPORTS DRINKS

PROS

Sports drinks rehydrate the body and

replace lost electrolytes while providing

sodium to drive thirst that makes the body

want to continue to hydrate. The added

carbohydrates refuel and replace glucose

(glycogen in muscles and liver) for the

next activity.

CONS

For those who do not exercise regularly,

you could be adding additional calories

through sugar and excess sodium to your

diet. The latter negatively impacts blood

pressure and kidney health. For those

wanting less processed foods, the fluid and

electrolytes of sports drinks can be achieved

in a combination of water and food.

RECOVERY BEER

PROS

Beer can boost the body with carbohydrates,

and brewer’s yeast is a good source of

thiamine, or B1, an important vitamin in

energy production. Just watch the alcohol

levels and maybe opt for a session ale rather

than a high-strength IPA. Or better yet, look

for non-alcoholic options from craft brands

like Athletic Brewing Company.

CONS

Consuming alcohol is counterproductive

to rehydrating and depending on

formulation, may not meet recovery protein

recommendations. If you want to crack

open a celebratory brew, have one, with

a water.

CHOCOLATE MILK

PROS

The children’s drink provides hydration,

carbohydrates, protein for muscle repair,

and electrolytes, as well as nutrition in

the form of sodium, calcium, magnesium,

phosphorus, and vitamins D and A. Dairy

products are a good source of leucine, an

amino acid thought to be a key in muscle

growth, as well as iodine, a trace element

needed for thyroid hormone production

that plays a role in energy production and

protein synthesis.

CONS

Added sugar from powdered or syrup-based

chocolate provides extra calories.

We know sleep is important, but what

happens to the body while we slumber?

Sleep is vital for repairing and providing

rest to the brain and the body. But several

changes occur during sleep that help

regulate the body’s immune function,

control blood pressure and heart rate,

regulate production of several hormones

including growth hormones and those that

control hunger and satiety, impact the

areas in the brain that control emotions

and logical thinking, and help consolidate

short-term and long-term memory. Hence,

sleep deprivation could contribute to

susceptibility to infections, weight gain,

mood disorders, pessimism, depression,

anxiety, emotional dysregulation, and

worse short-term and long-term memory.

The Sleep Effect

Dr. Rohit Budhiraja, the medical

director in the Sleep and Circadian Disorders

Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in

Boston, weighs in on why seven to eight hours

of quality sleep can be a gamechanger in

how you feel and perform.

Can you explain the different qualities

of sleep? Sleep is usually divided into

dream sleep (REM sleep) and nondream

sleep (NREM sleep). NREM

sleep is further divided into light sleep

(N1), intermediate sleep (N2), and

deep sleep (N3). Both REM and NREM

serve important functions. REM is

important for learning new skills and

memory consolidation and may help

regulate emotions.

What are some things that might lead to

a poor sleep? Environmental factors like

noise, light, high temperature (usually

cold temperature helps improve the

quality of sleep), and blue light exposure

at night (phone and computer screens

are very rich in blue wavelength). Eating

close to bedtime can worsen sleep

quality, and while alcohol can induce

sleep it can also suppress deeper stages

of sleep. Anxiety, stress, and depression

can signifi cantly impact the ability to fall

and stay asleep. And medical factors like

arthritis, acid refl ux, and sinus issues can

all effect sleep quality and continuity.

Are there habits you can embrace to help

improve sleep? Relaxation, exercise and

meditation can help slow down the brain

and facilitate deeper stages of sleep.

Avoid alcohol and meals close to bedtime

and try not to have caffeine within 8 to

10 hours of bedtime. For optimal sleep,

exposure to screens, like phones and

computers, should be cut off two hours

before going to bed, but even powering

down 30 minutes prior makes a difference.

Are there benefits of napping and if so

what and how long is a good nap?

Naps can improve mood and memory in

some people. If napping, it is usually a

good idea to keep it less than 20 to 30

minutes since longer naps can worsen the

sleep on subsequent nights by decreasing

the pressure of sleep.

Does sleep quality become more important

if we are training for a physical activity?

Good sleep is vital if you are training.

Several studies have demonstrated

improved athletic performance with sleep

extension. Good sleep has been shown to

decrease exhaustion, improve refl exes and

accuracy, and also help control emotions

and enhance logical thinking, all of which

can be very helpful during sports and

physical training.

MEALS TO HELP YOUR BODY RECOVER

As convenient as power bars and protein shakes are, nothing beats a well-balanced meal, says

Kate Zeratsky, of the Mayo Clinic. “Wholesome foods provide macronutrients, which include

carbs, proteins, and fats, micronutrients, and naturally occurring phytonutrients, antioxidant-rich

compounds in plants.” Here are easy combos to prepare at home or order on the road.

JULIAN RENTZSCH (ILLUSTRATION), ISTOCK (FOOD)

GREEK YOGURT

AND FRUIT

Yogurt is a good source of

calcium and phosphorous,

both important for strong

bones, and Greek yogurt

has a higher protein content

than other styles. Fresh fruit

provides fiber, energy in the

form of carbs, plus vitamin C

as well as other polyphenols

that may reduce markers of

inflammation after exercise.

SALMON AND

SWEET POTATO

A fatty fish, such as salmon,

provides a solid dose of

protein, healthy, omega 3

fatty acids, and vitamin

D. The addition of skin-on

sweet potato adds healthy

carbs, vitamin A, fiber, and

magnesium, which has

been shown to play a role

in muscle performance and

strength.

TUNA SANDWICH

Tuna is a fatty fish (see

benefits left) and is also a

good source of selenium,

an antioxidant mineral

that has been shown to

boost the activity of DNA

repair enzymes. Eat it on

wholegrain bread for a

dose of fiber and add a

slice of cheese for extra

protein, sodium, calcium,

and riboflavin, a B vitamin

involved in many key

metabolic processes

including energy production.

GRANOLA AND MILK

This is a good choice if you

don’t have a big appetite

after exercise, says

Zeratsky. Low-sugar granola

comprised of mostly nuts

and seeds is a good source

of vitamin E, magnesium,

and zinc, an antioxidant

mineral with over 1,000

functions in the body, many

involving the growth and

repair of tissue. Granola

made with oats delivers

added carbohydrates and

fiber and the addition

of dried fruit provides a

concentrated source of

calories and carbs. Milk adds

protein and vitamin D.

VEGETABLE PASTA

PRIMAVERA

Pasta is a good source of

carbs while tomato sauce is

packed with vitamin C and

lycopene, an antioxidant

that plays a role in reducing

inflammation and oxidation.

Add in onions, an excellent

source of quercetin, an

antioxidant that is believed

to play a role in reducing

inflammation, mushrooms, a

good source of vitamin D and

selenium, and spinach or

other magnesium-rich leafy

greens packed with folate,

which plays a key role in the

production of new cells.

Track Your Way to

Optimal Health

Will Ahmed, founder and CEO of WHOOP,

a manufacturer of fitness trackers, shares why the time

you spend in the gym doesn’t make you stronger, the dangers

of training when your body’s stressed, and how data can

help inform healthier habits for a better night’s sleep.

Does recovery really matter if you’re not an athlete or training for an

athletic endeavor? While WHOOP’s members include top athletes like

NFL player Patrick Mahomes and golfer Rory McIlroy, the majority simply

aspire to live healthier and more productive lives. Feeling good starts with

paying more attention to recovery and sleep. You can only manage what

you measure. If you want to put yourself in the best position to take on

the day, you need to recognize what’s going on inside your body.

Why are sleep and recovery crucial for optimizing performance? Sleep is

essential to maintaining good health and the foundation for our analytics

at WHOOP (see WHOOP 4.0, facing page). Our goal is to help members

understand when their bodies are ready for strain and when their bodies

should prioritize recovery. The time you spend training or exercising

doesn’t make you stronger—that’s when you break down the body. You

make gains during rest and recovery. Sleep repairs your muscles, restores

your cognitive function, and improves vital systems like immunity. Your

body can only take on so much stress each day. If you aren’t properly

focusing on recovery, you’re putting yourself at risk of injury or illness.

When you were the captain of the Harvard University squash team you

struggled with overtraining. What were some signs that you were doing

too much? I would regularly train for three hours a day. I wanted to be the

best and believed that meant consistently pushing myself to the limit. I

was overtraining, misinterpreting fi tness peaks, and underestimating the

importance of recovery and sleep. I was also balancing the rigors of being

a student. That experience ignited my interest in how technology could

help unlock peak performance. WHOOP really became the fi rst wearable

that would tell you not to train on days when your body was run down.

What personal revelations have you had from WHOOP, and how has that

data informed your habits? I use the WHOOP Journal that lets members

track how their choices impact their physiological data. For me, practicing

transcendental meditation has a very positive effect on my heart-rate

variability. Wearing blue-light blocking glasses every evening makes

my sleep much more effi cient. I’ve also found that supplements like

magnesium and melatonin enhance the quality of my sleep.

WHERE TO STAY

With the flood of luxury hotels over the past two

years, the charm of the Eternal City has never

been more piquant—and there’s still more to

come, with Six Senses, Bulgari, and Nobu all

planning big projects for 2023.

The best new hotels in Rome have all taken a

familiar course: merging the grandeur of Roman

aristocratic palaces with a contemporary interior

design. But each has done it with particular style

and verve, sometimes even playfully, and that

energy is radiating across the city. Take the highly

anticipated W Rome (marriott.com), which marks

the Italian debut of the always irreverent brand

and here occupies two 19th-century buildings,

located a stone’s throw from Piazza di Spagna.

In the 147 rooms and 15 suites, bright hues

and bold patterns combine with architectural

styles that date back to ancient Rome, a dizzying

mix that is heightened by designer furnishings

and ultra-modern technological accessories.

Unexpected paths lead to hidden corners, such

as the Parlapiano space, a garden inspired by the

architectural style of Borromini, or the Giardino

Clandestino, an outdoor courtyard very popular

with locals and creatives, who come here for a

drink and live music.

Conviviality is also the mantra of The Hoxton

(thehoxton.com), the first outpost in Italy of

the burgeoning English brand. Calling itself

an open-house hotel, it’s a stylish destination

attracting both travelers and locals in the always

chic Parioli neighborhood. The lobby is alive all

day long, while the Cugino bar is very popular

for breakfast and light bites, the social tables

bring gig workers from across the globe, and at

Beverly restaurant you can taste a Californian

cuisine with farm-to-table ethos. The 192 rooms

pay homage to iconic Italian design of the 1950s

with eclectic vintage furnishings and carefully

selected works of art.

Italian brand born just before the pandemic and

gem of 18 rooms whose atmosphere is reminiscent

of an elegant Roman house, the Maalot hotel,

opera composer Gaetano Donizetti, it boasts 30

rooms and suites, a bar, and a restaurant with

contemporary British design. The latest addition—

perhaps even more exciting—is Umiltà 36, where

the elegance of the interiors harkens back in all the

best ways to La Dolce Vita.

There is another group that has just expanded

opened his first boutique Zucchero x Fabrizio

WHERE TO SHOP

Retail therapy has long been centered on Via

dei Condotti, but for something original and

handmade, the place to go is Via di Monserrato.

Along this secluded street, behind the Campo

de Fiori district, you can find the highest

concentration of creativity in the city. Take the

jewelry at Delfina Delettrez (delfinadelettrez.

com), where the eponymous daughter of the

goldsmith Bernard Delettrez and Silvia Venturini

Fendi creates handmade treasures inspired by

Surrealism and the art of Giorgio de Chirico. At

No. 18 there is another jewelry store beloved by

VIPs, including Queen Rania of Jordan: Fabio

Salini (fabiosalini.it) who, after working for

Cartier and Bulgari, founded his own firm. He

experiments with new materials, such as carbon

fiber, as well as combining gold, diamonds, and

sapphires with wood, leather, and silk. Two

more unmissable stops on Via di Monserrato are

Chez Dédé (chezdede.com), which purveys a

sophisticated mix of objets d’art, accessories,

and clothing, and the Archivio di Monserrato

(soledadtwombly.com), a jewel box of a boutique

founded by Soledad Twombly, daughter-in-law of

the American painter Cy. Argentinian by origin,

she has created her wunderkammer in Rome by

collecting ancient fabrics, mainly from Anatolia

and Uzbekistan, as well as kimonos and objects

inspired by her travels. For original fashions

with comfortable and elegant lines, head to La

Jolie Fille (lajoliefille.it) by Michele Capalbo, a

well-known Italian fashion designer who has

worked with Roberto Cavalli and Chiara Boni.

He makes deft use of silk, velvet, and lace in

his handmade dresses, which often boast deep

necklines and touches of transparency. The last

stop has to be Lab Solue (labsolueperfume.

com), an olfactory laboratory where you can

create your personal perfume or home fragrance

with the crack on-site team.

FOOD MEMORIES ARE VERY IMPORTANT. WHICH DISH REPRESENTS YOU MOST?

Bringing back my memories in my cuisine is essential for me. The crunchy mullet with its broth and seaweed

tartare is one of the dishes that represents me best. In it you can find uniqueness, concentration of taste,

and the enhancement of ingredients in different textures.

WHICH OF YOUR DISHES BEST CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE ROMAN CULINARY TRADITION?

The “cacio e pepe” pasta is one of the most representative dishes of Roman cuisine. My personal

interpretation is spaghetti with cacio cheese and black pepper from Madagascar scented with rosebuds.

HOW DO YOU FACE THE CHALLENGE FOR AN INCREASINGLY SUSTAINABLE CUISINE?

I am attentive not to waste, I use water only when needed, I ask our supplier to reuse the same cases to

deliver fruits and vegetables. I could continue with a long list.

Bespoke is back in a big way, and a new generation of sartorial

talent has taken the reins at major houses across the globe, giving us

a peek at the cuts of tomorrow. // By Christian Barker

JACI BERKOPEC (2)

DURING THE PANDEMIC, the demand for bespoke tailoring

plummeted. That’s hardly a surprise. Who needed a new

suit or tuxedo when in-person business meetings, trips to the

office, social events, and formal occasions were out of the

question—and for some, even leaving home was forbidden?

According to the renowned New York men’s outfitter Alan

Flusser—who has dressed all manner of Wall Street tycoons—

during the lockdowns, his clients were hiding out at their holiday

houses in the Hamptons. “They’re telling me they haven’t put

a pair of trousers on for months; they’ve been living in T-shirts

and tracksuit pants,” Flusser said when we spoke in 2020.

His response was to down tools and offer protégé

Jonathan Sigmon the chance to take over the business.

Flusser wasn’t the only old hand to call it quits. There’s

been a great deal of baton-passing going on in the

sartorial scene of late, with numerous leading tailors

retiring and a new generation rising to take their place.

One such ascendant figure is Paolo Martorano (paolostyle.com),

who got his start working for Flusser, before honing his skills at

Paul Stuart and subsequently running the bespoke department

at Alfred Dunhill U.S.A. Five years ago, he hung out his own

shingle, setting up a bijou by-appointment atelier on West 57th

Street in Manhattan. Things were going fantastically well before

the pandemic hit. “By March 2020, we’d done about 80 percent

of 2019’s revenue. Business was just exploding,” Martorano says.

Then came the dip. Fortunately, as life has returned to normal,

demand for sartorial finery has bounced back—bigger and better

than ever, in fact. “Since the second half of 2021, the occasiondressing

business skyrocketed. Everyone wants to go out, everyone

wants to be dressed up,” Martorano says. “Weddings are almost all

black-tie now and we’re making a ton of tuxedos.”

As companies have begun returning to the office, “People are

coming to me for suits and they’re buying the most elegant suits

I’ve ever sold in my career,” Martorano says. “They’re going for

pinstripes; they’re going for double-breasted;

they’re going for peak lapels; they’re going for

dressy jackets and trousers with braces. They’re

choosing cloths like cashmere. They want luxury.”

And they want it from an under-the-radar purveyor

with pedigree whom Martorano personifies.

Across the pond in London, Dominic Sebag-

Montefiore, cutter and creative director at

Edward Sexton (edwardsexton.co.uk), is also

observing customers taking real joy in dressing

to the nines. “Bespoke tailoring is blooming into

something beautiful and special,” he says. No

longer is traditional men’s wear viewed as a

dour corporate uniform, reluctantly donned for

the workday. “Today, the suit is free to be an

icon of masculine elegance,” he explains, “or

something subversive.”

Sebag-Montefiore’s mentor, the eponymous

Sexton, knows a thing or two about subversion,

having earned legendary status as the cutter for

Savile Row insurrectionist Tommy Nutter, tailor

to 1960s London’s swingingest characters.

Today, Sexton’s house honors Nutter’s legacy,

remaining dedicated to making “clothes that

are striking, bold and timeless that are true

to our rebellious roots—dressing The Beatles,

Stones, Warhol, Hockney, and so on,” Sebag-

Montefiore explains. “We approach what we

do boldly and unapologetically,” he says. “We

have more freedom to be creative in what we

make than we have had in over 40 years.”

And yet, for all this talk of breaking with

tradition, Sebag-Montefiore says he’s acutely

conscious of the need to adhere to the oldschool

values of exquisite construction and

craftsmanship upon which Sexton built his

name. “Legacies are hard earned and easily

lost,” Sebag-Montefiore believes. “A reputation is

dependent on maintaining the standards that won

it. A legacy is kept by pursuing higher standards.”

The reputation of Australia’s oldest bespoke

tailors, J.H. Cutler (jhcutler.com), stretches

all the way back to 1884. When John Cutler

assumed the role of cutter at the family

business in the 1970s, he became the fourth

generation of his bloodline to run the company.

Over the years, John expertly catered to the

sartorial needs of a host of Australian prime

ministers, business leaders, top professionals,

and internationally renowned entertainers.

Unfortunately, none of John’s four children

chose to follow him into the trade, so when

he began pondering retirement, he was forced

to look beyond his gene pool for a successor.

Employed by John in 2009, Sam Hazelton has

been training to take the reins at J.H. Cutler

for the past 13 years. Now, with John retiring

to Tasmania, he’s poised to fulfill that destiny.

“It’s an amazing opportunity,” says Hazelton.

“I’m truly honored and I’m still getting used to

the idea. I’ve always known that the business

had incredible potential, and I’d like to really

explore that over the next few years.” He says

plans are afoot to refresh and slightly modernize

the brand, and to ensure the standards Cutler

and his forefathers established are kept.

“It’s difficult finding or training people these

days. Sadly, there’s no government-supported

tailoring apprenticeship program in this country.

58 NetJets


But I’ve just hired a fantastic new tailor. It’s

important to recruit young talent to learn alongside

the older guys we currently have, who are in

their sixties and seventies, so that their skills are

passed on,” Hazelton says. “We need to ensure

we can continue to keep producing tailoring of the

same or better quality 10 or 20 years from now.”

The most famous Florentine tailoring house,

Liverano & Liverano (liverano.com) is working

toward this same goal by actively educating a new

generation of talent. The house has established

a school where students are tutored by maestro

Antonio Liverano, who first picked up a needle

as a small boy in the 1930s. Select graduates

join the team as Liverano Fellows, a cohort that

currently includes men and women from Italy,

Japan, and Korea.

“Coming from different backgrounds, we

share one common goal, which is to craft the

most beautiful and comfortable tailoring for

our clients,” says Korean Seung Jin “Jin” An.

“We work in a collaborative setting, and we

learn from each other’s culture while upholding

what is a very Italian tradition and craft.”

Italian Leonardo Simoncini, who works

as a tailor in the atelier and a teacher in the

Liverano school, says carrying on the traditions

of the maestro is a dream come true. “As

a native of Florence, I am super proud to

represent the best in Italian and Florentine

tailoring and the ‘Made in Italy’ label,” he says.

Of his cosmopolitan team-mates, Simoncini

says, “Every one of us is passionate about our

craft. We have never forgotten and we never

take for granted the position that we occupy.

Whether we are in the atelier here in Florence

or visiting our clients halfway around the world,

we are ambassadors of the Liverano approach.”

One of the countries Simoncini and Jin

frequently visit to service Liverano’s customers is

Singapore. In this equatorial nation, for the past

13 years, sartorial culture has been championed

and fostered by one individual above all others:

Kevin Seah (kevinseah.com). In addition to

classic suits, tuxedos, and blazers, Seah traffics

in forward-thinking bespoke attire tailored to

Singapore’s steamy climate.

“Bespoke isn’t just about what a banker or

lawyer might traditionally wear to the office,”

Seah explains. “I encourage my clients to

reconsider their preconceptions of bespoke.

Why not commission a unique tropical shirt in

beautiful Indian block-print cotton? Or some

bespoke shorts or chinos? Individuality and selfexpression,

creating a wardrobe that reflects your

lifestyle and tastes. That’s the future of tailoring.”

ETERNAL STYLE

“Post-pandemic, the conscious consumer wants to invest

in something that they can wear numerous times in

numerous ways, dressing it up, dressing it down, rather

than spending £2,000 on a dress they’ll wear once to a

party, or buying disposable fast fashion that will quickly

find its way into a landfill. People’s mindsets around

fashion have changed. They want longevity, durability, and

versatility.” So says Daisy Knatchbull, founder of THE DECK

(thedecklondon.com), the first tailoring shop on Savile Row

exclusively for women, by women. Established in 2019, the

firm swiftly found a loyal fanbase among female consumers

seeking to “buy less but better,” investing in perennial

garments that can be mended when necessary and altered

as the body evolves. Trend-proof apparel of sufficient

quality to survive a lifetime—or more. “Our tailoring is

made to last,” Knatchbull explains. “We do free repairs for

life: We construct garments in such a way that they can

be adjusted for the rest of your life, and beyond. They truly

can be passed down to the next generation.”

FEELING BLUE

The coolest of hues took some time to make its

way into the world of watchmaking,

but now it’s here to stay. // By Chris Hall

NetJets


SINCE THE LATE 1960s, and defi nitely by the onset

of the 1970s, there have always been some blue

watches—the dressier kind of Omega Seamasters,

a few Rolexes, Heuer Monacos. And the latter

decade also saw a fair bit of wild and colorful

experimentation, especially as watchmakers

looked to compete with new-fangled digital

timepieces. But, by and large, the watches you’d

actually fi nd at a top jeweler or see advertised in

a magazine came in two colors: black and white.

To say it continued that way for the next 40 years

would be a serious oversimplifi cation—watches

associated with the sea certainly adopted blue as

a dial color earlier than others, and such is the

multitudinous nature of the watch world that you

can fi nd an exception to any rule. But it is true that

come the late 2000s and early 2010s, something

was afoot. Blue was suddenly everywhere, to the

extent that before long, it was accepted as almost

a third default color, something to be expected

every time a new model or range launched,

rather than something special that would follow

in due course. We see now that it was just the

fi rst trickle in what would become a chromatic

deluge, as manufacturing technology and fashion

tastes converged to allow watchmakers to offer

more or less any watch in more or less any color.

First, a sea of green watches emerged, followed

by a veritable rainbow of pink, purple, orange,

and more. At the same time, a whole new

generation of blue watches has launched—and

in comparison to the wilder hues on offer, it’s

starting to look like the perfect middle ground.

Allow us to present the best of 2022’s blue

watches: not necessarily as revolutionary as they

might have been a generation ago, but a very

welcome additional choice. As you might expect,

many brands still make the natural association

between seafaring and watches in some form

or other. The Baume & Mercier Riviera 10616

(baume-et-mercier.com), while possessed of the

necessary water resistance and sturdy steel case

to dip beneath the waves, is billed as a watch for

gazing down at the water from your Sunseeker,

and, appropriately enough, the semi-transparent

blue sapphire dial makes the automatic

movement beneath look like something halfglimpsed

in the shallows. Montblanc’s 1858 Iced

Sea Automatic Date (montblanc.com) is another

watch making metaphorical with its dial—this

time using an array of complicated techniques

to give the impression of gazing into the ancient

heart of a glacier. Back on the open waves, and

paying reference to the brand’s 176 years of

maritime clockmaking is Ulysse Nardin’s latest

Marine Torpilleur Moonphase (ulysse-nardin.

com), a watch that could well be said to embody

the safer side of blue dials (not for nothing is

navy blue supposed to be the easiest color for

men to wear when it comes to their wider

wardrobes). But at the same brand you’ll also

fi nd the Freak X Aventurine, an altogether bolder

way to work a deep blue into the collection.

Indeed, there is often a practical consideration

to the choice of color on offer. Whether it’s

the rich starry blue of aventurine glass or the

complexity of creating exactly the right color-fast,

wear-resistant pigment, or perfecting the dozens

of artisanal steps that can go into a high-end,

enamel-fi red dial, the fi nal color of a watch is

determined by what’s possible as much as by

what its creator may have been able to imagine.

Ceramic watches are notable for opening up a

whole new world of possibilities: The whole

watch can adopt a new shade, from bezel to

buckle, but each new color requires a fresh

chemical recipe for the raw ceramic powder,

which will change color when moulded and fi red

into shape. Hublot’s Big Bang Integrated Sky

Blue (hublot.com) is a case in point—such a

delicate hue has taken its engineers a while to

master. The end result is a watch that won’t be

mistaken for any other. Also experimenting with

spreading color beyond the dial is Cartier (cartier.

com), which having breathed new life into the

Santos a few years ago, is now expanding it

far beyond its 1980s roots (which seemed

daring enough back then) with a blue coating

to the bezel and bracelet. The all-blue look—

thanks to its expansive dial and carefully paired

leather strap—was also on display at Ressence

(ressencewatches.com), which debuted its new

Type 8 (the simplest and most stripped-back

of its creations to date) in just one color. And if

clever, independently owned watch brands with a

minimalist streak are your thing, there’s also H.

Moser & Cie (h-moser.com), whose nifty perpetual

calendar complication was given a dazzling blue

dial for the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar that

launched in February alongside a provocative

sister model whose dial came inscribed

with chalkboard-style instructions for use.

At the other end of the spectrum, in terms

of solemnity if not visually, there is perhaps no

better indication of blue’s arrival than its use by

the very biggest watchmaking maisons for their

top releases. Patek Philippe (patek.com) chose

to debut an incredible, multi-patented new

chronograph, reference 5470P-001, in what is,

by its dignifi ed standards, a very racy blue and

red color scheme, with a casual fabric strap to

match. Meanwhile, its companion at the very top

of the tree, Audemars Piguet (audemarspiguet.

com), wisely kept the classic blue dial for its

stainless steel 39mm Jumbo 50th anniversary

reissue of the Royal Oak but—according to

collectors watching the 50th anniversary

collection as it launched—the piece that set

tongues wagging was the smaller, more unisex,

37mm in ice blue. More than any other blue, this

particular shade stood out in 2022: it was hard

to miss at A. Lange & Söhne (alange-soehne.

com), , on the new Odysseus, and equally catching on Czapek’s Antarctique (czapek.com).

Some would surely argue that the combination

of a frosty pale blue is a perfect match for the

brushed and polished titanium of the Odysseus,

or the steel of the Antarctique, but I think the

truth is these sleek, integrated-bracelet designs

work well with almost any blue (or almost any

color at all, come to that). Certainly Chopard’s

Alpine Eagle (chopard.com), which is hewn

from the same strata as the Royal Oak, Nautilus

et al, is no worse for having a brighter, bolder

blue dial on its new Flying Tourbillon reference.

The dial pattern is crafted to resemble the

fl ecked iris of an eagle’s eye, and here has been

redrawn to emanate from the beating tourbillon

at six o’clock. Not to take away from the handfi

nished watchmaking on show, but sometimes

it’s all about having a dial the owner wants to

stare at for far longer than it takes to tell the time.

You could say the same—at a very different

price point, with very different techniques on

offer—of a watch as unassuming as Oris’s Big

Crown Pointer Date (oris.ch). Pictures only begin

to hint at how glossy, how rich and how all-round

smart is the navy blue dial. Alongside the more

illustrious horology we’ve just rattled through,

eye-

it might recede into the background, but when

all is said and done it’s a perfect embodiment of

our opening point: A blue watch that works as a

mainstream choice, with infi nitely more character

and life than if it were sombre black. Indeed,

when it comes to watchmaking, there has really

never been a better time to have the blues.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN usurped in gourmets’ affections over the

past couple of decades by molecular gastronomy and Scandi

minimalism, but French cuisine is fighting back. Perhaps, postpandemic,

we all crave burgundy banquettes, crisp white napkins,

sparkling chandeliers, and the contented bistro buzz that only

Gallic savoir-faire can provide.

Nowhere is that truer than New York. Daniel Boulud, New York’s

favorite French son, has gone back to his Lyonnais roots to open

Le Gratin (legratinnyc.com), a pitch-perfect bistro de luxe with

dishes that would bring a tear to his maman’s eye: cervelle de

canut (soft cheese with herbs), quenelles of pike with mushrooms

and gruyère, pâté en croûte gourmand, and spit-roast chicken with

gratin dauphinois.

Not to be outdone, Fouquet’s, the hallowed Champs-Élysées

brasserie, now has a New York outpost, in the heart of Tribeca.

The menu at the Art Deco-ish Brasserie Fouquet’s New York

(hotelsbarriere.com) is the brainchild of marquee chef Pierre

Gagnaire, who adds his customary élan to a classically Gallic menu

of escargots, sole meunière, and steak tartare.

Up in NoMad land, Austrian chef Markus Glocker is fusing a

Viennese café vibe with a (mostly) French menu. Taking over the Ace

Hotel space vacated by The Breslin, Koloman (kolomanrestaurant.

com) offers cheese soufflé with confit mushrooms, and salmon

en croûte with beetroot beurre rouge, but there’s also a schnitzel,

naturally, and sachertorte to follow.

Back in Paris’s 16th arrondissement, Le Petit Rétro (petitretro.

business since 1904—but the owner is: The renowned Guy Savoy,

mustard, classic desserts, and a great wine list.

Over in the 11th arrondissement, by Oberkampf, the love affair

between France and Japan continues at the small and stylish

Magma (+33 01 4805 5690). Yamaguchi-born chef Ryuya

Ono’s menu changes “suivant son humeur”, but his sublime

technique is a constant, cooking classic French combos—gurnard

with bouillabaisse sauce, rabbit pithivier with smoked eel—with

precision and aplomb.

Across the Channel, chef Alex Dilling, who earned his spurs at

The Connaught and The Greenhouse, now has his name above

the door at the Hotel Café Royal (hotelcaferoyal.com). His refined

brand of haute cuisine marries French technique with luxury

ingredients and a generous dash of originality: aged kaluga caviar

with oysters and long pepper, for instance, or pâté de campagne

with black truffle and jamón ibérico.

It is London’s hottest ticket right now, but rivaling it will be

The Audley (theaudleypublichouse.com), international gallerist

Hauser & Wirth’s makeover of a towering old Mayfair pub. Hauser

& Wirth—known as Artfarm, for hospitality purposes—have plenty

of form (Roth Bar & Grill in Somerset; The Fife Arms in Braemar;

Manuela in L.A.) and promise a classic ground-floor pub with bar

snacks, and the first-floor Mount St. Restaurant, with ex-Gordon

Ramsay chef Jamie Shears rattling the pans.

and the food is earthy and seductive. Try the smoked beef shin

quesabirria—a hybrid of a taco and a quesadilla—served with veal

bone consommé.

Elsewhere in Europe, Barcelona continues to cement its gastrotourist

reputation with Batea (bateabarcelona.com), the handsome

new seafood restaurant from local boy Carles Ramon and Galician

Manu Núñez, the two chefs behind the acclaimed Besta. Their

sometimes audacious menus delight in uniting their two corners

of Spain (and the Atlantic with the Mediterranean): spicy mussel

croquetas, maybe, or cockles with a salted fish broth dashi, or

sautéed baby cuttlefish with bouillabaisse mash and dry-aged

steak. Go with an open mind and an empty stomach.

In fashion-conscious Milan, nowhere is more in vogue than Horto

(hortorestaurant.com), the sleek and stylish restaurant atop The

Medelan, the new business and retail complex in Piazza Cordusio.

The brains in the kitchen belong to Norbert Niederkofler, the three-

Michelin-starred chef from St. Hubertus, who has transferred his

ultra-local philosophy from the Dolomites to Milan. All his produce

comes from within an hour’s drive of the city: The menu changes

constantly, but expect freshwater trout and sturgeon, locally farmed

caviar, and imaginative twists on northern Italian classics such as

Piemontese “plin” (agnolotti) gilded with saffron and scattered with

borage flowers from the terrace garden.

Meanwhile, Bangkok’s post-pandemic recovery continues

apace, and the city’s cosmopolitan tastes are exemplified by Terra

(bangkok-terra.com), the smart new Spanish restaurant from

Barcelona-born chef Sandro Aguilera. Located just off Petchburi

Road, Aguilera’s menu takes the very best of Spanish produce and

turns it into a feast both for the palate and for the eyes. Ajo blanco

is reinvented with coconut, clams, and a basil granita; cuttlefish

is served as a tartare with charred lettuce; while Galician octopus

has bomba rice, roasted white asparagus, and alioli for company.

For an underappreciated cuisine much closer to home, head to

North (north-restaurant.com), in Phrom Phong, a leafy sanctuary in

the middle of Bangkok. Chiang Rai-raised chef Panupong Songsang’s

menu, as the restaurant’s name suggests, is a homage to northern

Thai cuisine—the ancient kingdom of Lan Na—and his cleverly

crafted menu takes diners on a journey through river and jungle, far

away from the coconut palms and the ocean that inform many Thai

menus. Expect butterflied and grilled king river prawns with khao soi

noodles and a spicy broth, Chiang Rai-style deep-fried catfish salad

(“larb”), and tea-smoked duck breast with galangal chili sauce.

Jeow (jeow.net.au), in Melbourne, has much in common

with North: the food here is Laotian, from the other side of the

Mekong—“jeow” is the Lao word for a sauce, paste or dip—and

funky, jungle flavors are to the fore in dishes like “or lam”, a brothy

stew made with beef short ribs, spiced with the Szechuan pepperlike

“sakhaan” and fragrant with herbs. Chef and co-owner Thi Le

is also fermenting her own Laotian fish sauce, a cloudy condiment

called “padek” that adds its distinctively pungent flavor to many

Laotian dishes.

Also in Melbourne, Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters

(victoriarestaurant.com.au) has galvanized the Fed Square

culinary scene with an ambitious 250-cover restaurant, a 20-cover

wine library, and an all-weather terrace overlooking the Yarra

River. Leading the kitchen is chef Alejandro Saravia, and his menu

celebrates the produce of Victoria, from Snake Valley smoked eel

pâté with pancetta, and Koo Wee Rup asparagus with walnut

cream to Western Plains pork loin with roast onion and dark beer,

and free-range lamb cutlets with mountain pepper mustard. The

wine list is described as a “bible,” and they’re not kidding.

There’s no kangaroo on Saravia’s menu, but it has somehow

hopped over to Singapore: specifically, to Kaarla (kaarla-oumi.sg),

the new restaurant from Australian-born chef John-Paul Fiechtner.

His spotlight shines on Australian coastal cuisine: as well as

kangaroo, salted and given extra bounce with liquorice root and

bush tomato, you might find Australian oysters with oyster leaf and

fig leaf vinegar, Abrolhos Island scallops with edible flowers and

trout roe, and wagyu from Robbins Island, pepped up with pickles

and preserves from Fiechtner’s garden. The kitchen’s impressive

wood-fired grill gives a welcome lick of smoke to many of the

dishes, and the wine list is also striking.

Finally, heading back to the States, and two new restaurants—

the first in Los Angeles, the second in Chicago—that confirm

the Gallic trend, although Mr. T’s (mrtrestaurants.com) original

restaurant is in Paris’s trendy Upper Marais district, where chef

Tsuyoshi Miyazaki (the eponymous Mr. T) and business partner

Guillaume Guedj play fast and loose with the bistro concept, to

the delight of a hipster crowd that feasts happily on lamb kebabs

scented with burning thyme, truffled mac’n’cheese, and vegan

“merguez” made from carrots and served with salsify fries, all to a

thumping R&B backbeat. Expect no different on Hollywood’s North

Sycamore Avenue.

Obélix (obelixchicago.com), in Chicago’s River North district,

is cut from more traditional cloth: Daniel Boulud (or his mother)

could have written the menu. Gratinated onion soup features a

rich beef stock, Swiss cheese and croûtons, salade lyonnaise

tosses duck confit and duck egg in with the frisée and the

vinaigrette, and coquilles Saint-Jacques are bathed in a grapestudded

sauce Véronique. The sancerre is perfectly chilled, the

plateau de fruits de mer is a work of art, the jelly in the pâté en

croûte has the perfect wobble, and the room is as buzzy as a

beehive. As co-owners and brothers Oliver and Nicolas Poilevey

would probably say: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

TASTING NOTES

One of Bordeaux’s leading vineyards is converting its

terroir to biodynamic farming —a change led by the

formidable Saskia de Rothschild. // By Guy Woodward

LAFITE

LOOKS

FORWARD

WITHIN THE WINE world, Bordeaux is not a place where things

tend to happen quickly. Take the region’s hallowed 1855

classification, which ranks the top châteaux of the Médoc from

first to fifth growths. The ranking has seen just one change

in its 167-year history—the stately Mouton Rothschild being

promoted from a second to first growth after its owner, Baron

Philippe de Rothschild, successfully petitioned agriculture

minister and future president Jacques Chirac in 1973.

Other than that, such is the sanctity of their terroir that changes

of ownership, winemakers, and even the expansion and addition

of vineyards, have not threatened the status of this vinous elite. As

a result, Mouton’s close relation, Château Lafite Rothschild, which

belongs to another branch of the aristocratic family, has, since 1855,

retained its status as one of only four, latterly five, Premiers Grands

Crus Classés – and with it, its reputation as a bastion of Bordeaux,

and one of most vaunted, coveted (and expensive) wines in the world.

Lafite, too, is not given to radical change. Under the long-time

stewardship of the debonair if somewhat detached Baron Éric de

Rothschild—cousin to Baron Philippe—it continued on its serene

trajectory, Baron Éric’s only nod to fashion the velvet smoking

slippers he was fond of wearing to the grand black-tie dinners

that are commonplace in Bordeaux’s wine fraternity. Yet having

celebrated its 150th year in the ownership of the same family in

2018, the property has undergone something of a transformation.

Two things happened in 2018, in addition to the anniversary

celebrations. Firstly, Saskia de Rothschild (the sixth generation,

and neither the oldest child, nor male, and therefore destined

not to inherit her father’s title) took over the management of

the estate, and its various sister properties, as the first female

chairwoman of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).

“When the family decided it was time for Baron Éric to hand

over to his daughter, it was a big, big change,” says Jean-Sebastien

Philippe, international director of DBR Lafite. “We moved from a man

who was a legend in the wine world, who had been managing the

estate since 1974, to his young daughter, who was only born in 1987.

“It was a big move, and when Saskia came on board, she wanted

to make quite a lot of changes across everything we do. Not that what

we were doing was wrong, but it was time to embrace modernity.”

The second change—and the most significant immediate

impact she made—was to convert all the Lafite vineyards (and

those of its sister estates) to organic viticulture, a relatively

radical move in Bordeaux. And having gone so far, why not go

further? Over the last four years, the estate has been following—

“in a scientific, empirical way,” says Philippe—biodynamic

viticulture. One third of the property is now biodynamic, after a

long-term study in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux,

to gauge the effect of biodynamic farming on the vineyards.

As Philippe acknowledges, it was “a very strong statement” for a

first growth to commit itself to a type of vineyard husbandry that is

more common in the more rustic wine regions of Burgundy, the Loire

or even that hipster’s favourite the Jura. A handful of Bordeaux’s

classified estates—notably Châteaux Palmer and Pontet-Canet—

have followed the same path, but very few of the scale and status of

Lafite (whose vineyard holdings total more than 270 acres, compared

DRIVING FORCE

Jean-Sebastien Philippe is one of

the innovative team bringing a new

dynamism to the hallowed cellars of

Château Lafite Rothschild.

to small single-figure acreage at most Burgundy domaines).

But then Saskia de Rothschild is not scared of a challenge.

A graduate of HEC Paris and Columbia University, she carved

out a successful career as an investigative journalist for the

New York Times International Edition in the U.S., Africa,

and Europe, where her assignments included a month spent

interviewing inmates at the notorious La MACA prison at

Abidjan, in Côte d’Ivoire; following the first female U.S.

Marines on Afghanistan’s front line; and being embedded with

sheep farmers taking on the mining industry in Greenland.

This is not a woman afraid to get her hands dirty. “It was a great

time, covering elections and other events in the area,” she said of

her time in West Africa. When it became clear that she was favored

over her two brothers and other contenders from the six branches

of the family who are shareholders in Lafite, she returned to France

to study viticulture and winemaking, and committed herself to the

land where, as a young girl, she had picked grapes and tasted

blends with her father. “I knew the place. I loved the place. And

I felt I could protect it for years to come,” she said at the time.

The conversion of the vineyard to organic and, ultimately,

biodynamic farming is a wholesale undertaking. “It’s not a case of

being organic for the sake of being organic, but going further via

agroecology and agroforestry,” says Philippe. So while many Bordeaux

estates are bolting on vineyards through the somewhat controversial

purchasing of land from neighboring (but not necessarily classified)

estates, Lafite has been pulling out acres of vineyards and replanting

them with trees. “The trees were cut in the 1970s and ’80s so it

was time to replant them to reproduce corridors of vegetation and

wildlife,” says Philippe. The 494 acres of marsh fields at Lafite that

sit alongside the vineyards are now home to herds of wild cows.

“There is a lot of thinking and beliefs about biodynamism,

but we wanted hard facts,” says Philippe. “We already have

five years of data, and we need to do five more years’ study

to go deep into understanding what biodynamics bring to

the vineyard, good or bad. The electro-connectivity of soil,

minerality of soil, genetic studies of soil, rootstock, leaves, etc.”

The move is, he says, “very much linked to Saskia’s belief,” but is

“something that we are embracing and that everyone is following, right

across the château.” The transition, adds Philippe, has required “full

commitment” from all involved. “We can’t force our viticulturalists to

do something, so it needed us to fully explain and convince workers

who have been here for generations that this is the way forward.”

It is still too early to say how the move will impact the style of the

wine in the bottle, but analysis by plot, grape variety, and terroir via

blind tastings has shown “neither a drop nor a rise in quality”, says

Philippe. So, given that the process is significantly more expensive

and labor-intensive, leading to a drop in yields due to a less

interventionist approach, but requiring more manpower to prepare

and spread biodynamic concoctions in the vineyard, why bother?

“Well, fortunately, we can afford it,” says Philippe. “But

first and foremost, it’s about the health of the vineyard and

the people working there for us. And then we cannot ignore

the fact that there is a strong tendency these days—and this

affects everything that we do—for people to be more conscious

of the behaviour and approach of brands they consume.”

There is also, says Philippe, the social impact. “We do a lot of

things at Lafite that go beyond viticulture—so how can we create an

ecosystem where we can help people who are in difficult situations

to re-find a purpose in life and reintegrate themselves into society?”

The answer has been through a program that sees refugees

from parts of Africa and the Middle East recruited to be retrained

and integrated into the Lafite vineyard team. “We welcome around

10-20 every year, and try to provide them with a new job and

a path for the future,” says Philippe. The property also has a

foundation aimed at “being socially respectful in our local networks,

in Pauillac [the commune where Lafite is based] and Bordeaux, by

redistributing some of the wealth we accrue to the right causes.”

It’s all part of a mission, as Philippe says, to establish a more

emotional connection with consumers. “My first impression

when I came to Lafite was that we have a fantastic distribution

network via the négociant system, but conversely, it was

creating a distance from consumers. So we’re trying to find

a new way of interacting with consumers, and moving away

from big wine dinners where all the trade comes together and

tells you how good their wine is, which can be quite boring.”

Last year, Saskia de Rothschild added the title of CEO to

her responsibilities, after the resignation of former incumbent

Jean-Guillaume Prats, whose team now reports directly to de

Rothschild. It completed her assumption of total control of

the estate, where, in another break from tradition, she now

lives with her family, including her two young daughters.

De Rothschild’s father used to split his time between

Pauillac and Paris; indeed, Saskia is the first member of

the family to live at the estate since it was bought by Baron

James de Rothschild in 1868. “She decided to live at the

château and be here every day, to show her commitment,”

says Philippe. That commitment, it seems, is total. lafite.com

RYAN YOUNG

Fittingly, for one of the most significant and pioneering collections of media art in the world, the Kramlich Collection is not standing

still. Since Pamela and Richard Kramlich (above, at their residence) focused their attention on new media in the late 1980s they have

cultivated a body of work that now encompasses over 200 films, videos, slides, and installations, as well as over 250 significant works

of photography, sculpture, painting, and drawing by more than 230 artists from around the world. Major players featured in these include

Marina Abramović, Steve McQueen, and Andy Warhol. Having amassed such a notable collection, the next step in the journey was to

build an establishment capable of presenting a series of works that, according to the Kramlichs, “lived and breathed, that was disruptive,

and that placed a complex set of demands on its installation, in terms of space, light, scale, sound, and time.” This involved both working

with artists to establish how best to display their work and a near-20-year collaboration with the architects Herzog & de Meuron, which

resulted, in 2016, in the magnificent Kramlich Residence. Located amid the beauty of Napa Valley, the 8,000 square feet of galleries

allow visitors—tours are invite-only—to view the collection at a pace dictated by the works themselves. The next stage involves exhibitions

drawn from the collection, with the inaugural one, “Human Conditions,” consisting of 22 installations of media art that investigate a

range of crucial issues in the spheres of politics and psychology. A second exhibition focusing on portraiture will begin in January. While

access to the collection is exclusive, the Kramlichs are conscious of engaging the wider public. Most recently, this has manifested itself

in the first volume of a series of four books, “The Human Condition: Media Art from the Kramlich Collection, 1” (published by Thames &

Hudson). Edited by Shannon Jackson, the tome features lush photography of the collection and essays by leading curators and scholars

in the field, commenting on complex issues from civil war to planet degradation. Like much of new media itself, this remarkable story

continues to move on. kramlichcollection.org
