Famous for its winter season, Gstaad has been a destination for the who’s who– celebrities, Royals and jet-setters from across the globe since the early 1900’s — some who enjoy the skiing and but most who relish the après-ski scene-   So its only natural that Gstaad would host the Hublot Polo Cup Gstaad, as it is the ‘Sport of Kings’.

The Gstaad Polo Club is celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary, from August 13th to August 16th. In addition to Hublot, sponsors include Banque Baring Brothers Sturdza, E. I. Sturdza Investment Funds, McLaren Geneva, Gstaad Palace, Vicomte A., Perrier Jouët champagne and Dunhill to name but a few.

Polo aficionados who appreciate the finest music has to offer, will have the opportunity to enjoy the Menuhin Festival which began July 16th and continues through September 5th.  Even on top of the summits of our mountains, you can hear the gentle sound of the music…

If you’re planning a trip to Italy, a stop in Florence, if only to witness the restoration of the Baptistery, is a must.  The Pucci couture sheath, wrapped by the venerable House of Pucci a year ago,  remains a delight for tourists and Florentines alike.

The Pucci family is one of the city’s founding families and its Renaissance-era Palazzo is around the corner from the Baptistery.  Laudomia Pucci has kept her father’s passion alive, spearheading efforts to mark the 60th anniversary of Florence’s Center for Italian Fashion with her father’s original 1957 designs. Pucci used over 20,000 scarves to drape the iconic Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence during its restoration. “Quite amazing to think the foulard Emilio designed in 1957 would be draping the Baptistery over 50 years later!.” A limited edition of the ‘Battistero’ scarf is available at Emilio Pucci’s stores in Florence, Rome and Milan as well as on emiliopucci.com, with proceeds benefiting this iconic monument’s continued refurbishment, scheduled to be completed September 2015.

Emilio Pucci not only dressed The Baptistery in Florence Italy, and designed the limited edition scarf, but then went to the next level– Presenting scarves of the world.. What’s next?

How cool is it that alumni fly from all over the globe to bid farewell to a beloved teacher? Professor Malcolm Higgins, renamed ‘Henry’ (though we are not quite sure who by..) decided to retire after 47 years!  This was not taken lightly by his beloved students, many of whose children also had the privilege of his guidance and friendship.  Thank you Henry for bringing us together after forty years!

The 13th Annual Palm Beach Fine Craft Show as this year’s show promises to drive even more cultural tourism to Palm Beach County, given the added surprises up its sleeve.  This year the event has added a charitable component to engage some of the country’s most prominent collectors.   The by-invitation only party will be held Friday, February 26th.  Appropriately billed “Head to Toes”, the reception will benefit three organizations that improve children’s lives, through the art and education to enrich their minds, down to the shoes that will protect their feet.

Considered to be the #1 Fine Craft Show in the Country based on artist’s sales by Art Fair Source Book, a leading resource in the industry, the juried event will showcase and offer for sale a unique and vetted selection of contemporary American fine craft.

Cultural Tourists typically stay longer and spend more when visiting a destination. This year the show will be bigger and better than ever, with over 135 master and emerging artists from all over the country convening at our show,” says Elizabeth Kubie, Director of the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show.

Everyone who is ANYONE knows Patrick McMullan as the pioneer of celebrity and society photography, famous for memorializing candid shots of A-listers, fashionistas, designers, models, actors, artists, socialites and captains of industry. Patrick is also a columnist, philanthropist, entrepreneur and documentarian. Born in New York, educated at NYU, Patrick majored in business and “minored in Studio 54.” His impact on pop culture and New York City nightlife is legendary and documented through an extensive archive.

But what not all of us know about Patrick is that throughout his iconic career spanning over 3 decades, Patrick has been building his own private collection of photographs. An eclectic ensemble of over 200 artworks chosen for this exhibition, which in addition to his own prized photos, includes those from renowned photographers David LaChapelle, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Steven Klein, Peter Beard, Harry Benson, Mary Ellen Mark, Michael Thompson, Roe Etheridge, Jessica Craig Martin, Scavullo to Salgado, to outsider art, Hollywood studio shots, and familiar kitsch. Some were gifts, some were trades and some were purchased from charity auctions, which he sometimes photographed. Each of course has a story and a sentiment….
