FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD Travel Dispatch | Navagio Beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach due to the ancient freighter buried at its center, Navagio is easily the most beautiful stretch of sand in Greece. It’s sheltered by sheer limestone cliffs and is so isolated that you can only access it by boat. While you could easily spend all day sunning on its powdery sands, its beauty is best appreciated from the viewing platform in the cliffs above — just follow the signs to Agios Gergio Kremnao monastery.
Zakynthos, or Zante, has shrugged off its reputation as a destination for lads on tour by rebranding itself as Greece’s greenest island. It’s not just the emerald hills sliding into the electric blue Ionian: much of the south coast is a nature reserve where endangered loggerhead turtles hatch in the sand. The turtle beaches are off limits, but there are countless coves in every hue of green and blue.
Where to stay in Zante: Porto Zante Villas and Spa, the ultra-luxury all-villa resort in the Greek island of Zakynthos has been voted One of the 20 Best Hotels in Europe, Turkey and Russia at the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards 2018. The multi-award-winning Porto Zante, member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World has joined a list of prestigious hotels and resorts, including the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc, Le Bristol in Paris, Cipriani in Venice and others.  A slice of heaven in Europe: The mountainous interior, all sleepy stone villages is great for hikes. Askos Stone Park is a wildlife sanctuary inhabited by deer, chinchilla, and dozens of other species. Explore the Venetian castle high above the harbor — we’re in a holiday mode and this sets the tone.  Where did you escape to this weekend? Who’s ready for a swim? #danielpalopdesigns @ZakynthosGreece #thejoysofsummer #farfromthemaddingcrowds #zakynthosgreece #toptrophydestinations #celebratesummers #housesgardenspeople #zante_greece #hellas #ioniansea #ionianislands #theweekendsoff #navagiobeach🇬🇷️ #shipwreckbeachzakynthos #itsgreektome #fashionasfantasytravel #travelswithmyaunt #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment #TheWorldOfInstagram

— | - THE JOYS OF SUMMER - | — Most Unforgettable Movies — Summertime | Director David Lean’s simple film — adapted from the play The Time of the Cuckoo by Arthur Laurents — centres on a spinster (played by Hepburn) who is taking her dream trip to Venice, accompanied only by her omnipresent movie camera. A chance encounter with a suave local man (played by Rossano Brazzi) leads to a budding romance and some unexpected complications when she discovers he is married. Lean filmed the entire movie on location, foregoing studio shots for the actual grandeur of Venice. The location adds immeasurably to the atmosphere of what is actually a very modest story. Hepburn won outstanding reviews as the vulnerable, lonely woman who at first resists her romantic impulses only to succumb to them and enjoy life for the first time. The film is also noted for the cinematography of Jack Hildyard. Summertime was released in the United Kingdom under the title Summer Madness<  Most Unforgettable Movie: In 1990, Billy Wilder, asked David Lean, which movie that Lean had directed was his favorite. “I can choose without any hesitation,” Lean said. “Summertime — It starred my favorite actress, Katherine Hepburn, and it was filmed in my favorite place, Venice. And the subject is the most basic and pervasive of all: not love, but loneliness. The idea of tragic loneliness appealed to me.” —Summertime is a 1955 American/British Technicolor romance film, directed by David Lean and starring Katherine Hepburn, Rossano Brazzi, Darren McGavin and Isa Miranda • #danielpalopdesigns #thejoysofsummer️ #celebratesummer #locurasdeverano #mostunforgettablemoviesofalltime #DavidLean #thetimeofthecuckoo #arthurlaurentsplay #KatherineHepburn #RossanoBrazzi #Summertime #SummerMadness #venice #italy🇮🇹 #oldhollywoodlegend #cinemaclassic #oldhollywoodmovies #mostunforgetable #fashionasfantasypicks #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités #flashbackfriday️ #TheWorldOfInstagram

— | - A ROOM WITH A VIEW - | — Weekend vibes • Lake Como • The lakes of Northern Italy are a go-to vacation spot for the world’s elite, and it’s not surprising - the area is filled with luxurious hotels with equally beautiful views. From the iconic Lake Como to the underrated Lake Orta, these bodies of water are lined with villas, charming lakeside villages, mountainous landscapes, botanical gardens, and wineries. A renowned Italian pearl is Lake Como, recognized for its stunning scenery and location by the foothills of the alps. (It’s also the Clooneys’ favorite escape in Europe). The lake is shaped like an upside-down Y, with slender branches that meet at the resort town of Bellagio. At the bottom of the southwest branch lies the city of Como, home to Renaissance architecture and a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of Brunate. What you might not know is that Lake Como and Milan are only about an hour away from each other by train or car, so checking off these two stunning destinations in one weekend is actually possible<  A Room With a View and here’s hoping you have one today! The wonderful @airbnb represent this stunner overlooking Lake Como, high above the village of Varenna • Beautiful photo @sssoph90 • Thank you both for the perfect post! • A Wonderful Time: Attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places

— | - THE JOYS OF SUMMER - | —  Before John F. Kennedy was President of the United States — indeed, before he met Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, before he was U.S. senator, a Congressman, a Naval hero, a Harvard graduate — he was first a sailor. It could be argued that for JFK sailing was not only his first love, it was the love of his life. JFK owned many boats, but one boat remained his favorite throughout his too brief life. On his 15th birthday, his father Joseph Kennedy gave him a 25 foot Wianno Senior, a classic wooden gaff-rigged sloop made nearby on Cape Cod. JFK named her Victura, Latin for “about to conquer” — fitting for a young man with big dreams. He went on to other larger boats — most notably the Sparkman & Stephens designed S/Y Manitou, and the Presidential motor yacht Honey Fitz — but it was Victura that captured and held his imagination and his heart<  JFK, The Sailing President: Sailing at Hyannis Port was fun and adventure during the Spring of 1953, which were the courting days of Senator John F.

- 1938 BUGATTI CHARMED LIFE - This final production Atlantic led a charmed life that continues to this day. It’s first owner was British tennis player Richard Pope and it was delivered to him in May, 1938 before being registered “EXK6”, as it’s commonly referred to. Painted a rich sapphire blue, No. 57591 distinguishes itself from the other Atlantics mostly by the ‘facelift’ at the front end and the absence of the rear fender covers. In 1939, Richard Pope sends the car to Molsheim at the Bugatti factory to have the ‘C’ specification fitted. He kept the car for nearly thirty years, sometimes loaning his Atlantic to Bugatti specialist Barrie Price. Eventually, Price bought the car in 1967 and had it in its possession for 10 years. In the meantime, No. 57591 suffered a light crash during a commemoration which led to it getting stuck in a ditch. The car was handed to wealthy businessman Anthony Bamford and, shortly after, was given to another collector. Eventually, renowned fashion designer Ralph Lauren buys the car in 1988, who then commissions a complete restoration with Paul Russell and Co. They were able to cut through the past restoration work and revive the car back to its 1938 glory, even though it was painted black at Mr. Lauren’s request. The car was given the “Best of Show” award at Pebble Beach in 1990 and “Best of Show” at Villa d’ Este in 2013, along with many other top awards<  While it can be seen as “only” a car, the Atlantic is much more than that. It is a historical monument of pre-War Europe on wheels. The Bugatti Type 57, that includes the Atlantic, was a creation of Jean Bugatti, the son of the founder Ettore. The one that Lauren owns is one of the most iconic models ever produced • 1938 Bugatti Type 57S(+C) Atlantic Coupé No. 57591 (Chassis No. 57591 / Engine No. 395 / Original color: Sapphire blue/ Interior: Beige leather) • #danielpalopdesigns #TheWorldOfRalphLauren #BugattiRalphLauren #ralphlaurencollection #RLMag #RLMagazine #bugattiatlantic #bugattitype57scatlantic #ExoticCar #LuxuryCars #cmcmodels #cmcbugatti  #fashionasfantasypicks #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment #TheWorldOfInstagram

• | — PORTRAIT OF POWER — | • Remembering Jackie O on her 90th Birthday • Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was an icon in every sense of the word. Her fashionable visage still endures in our memories to this day, on what would have been her 90th birthday. As a woman who epitomized glamour, Jackie’s name came to stand for a complete lifestyle. From her trademark style to her impeccable manners, she was a woman the people adored and followed. She charmed audiences worldwide. The extraordinarily welcoming reception she received on a visit to Paris in May 1961 prompted President Kennedy to remark, “I do not think it altogether inappropriate to introduce myself... I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris and I have enjoyed it.”  What Becomes A Legend Most: Style Icon Jackie O was a fashion force at The Costume Institute’s The Imperial Style: “Fashions of the Hapsburg Era” Gala wearing a strapless Valentino haute couture.

— | • IL DOLCE FAR NIENTE • | — Happy Friday! We’re packing our bags and heading to Ilha Grande, Rio de Janeiro for a chilled-out off-the-beaten-track island getaway. THE VIBE Mountainous Jungle, hidden turquoise coves, a mellow island atmosphere... it is not hard to imagine why this remote patch of paradise was once popular with pirates, who lay in wait for the Spanish ships carrying treasure from the Americas. These days ilha Grande — which remains car-free still — is more popular with laid-back travellers playing out castaway fantasies. Far from the madding crowd: Days here are spent lazing in swaying hammocks, strolling one of the many pristine beaches around the island or exploring the miles of jungle trails where you’ll likely not see another soul for hours. DON’T MISS one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Brazil, Praia do Aventureiro, at the oceanic side of Ilha Grande. Azure seas, a glorious crescent of golden sand and blissful silent seclusion... Amazing! • Where better to spend a lazy Saturday morning? Hats off and enjoy to those of you that are soon departing on holiday!  Have a great weekend!

But an uncompromising attitude of doing what she wants, whenever she wants to goes a long way when it comes to radical career leaps mid-life, she tells CR Fashion Book in cut-glass English. Known for working her own brand of unique visual magic in the film and fashion spheres, Daphnes was the first to don Alexander McQueen’s impossibly high Armadillo Boots from the designer’s penultimate show from Spring/Summer 2010. Measuring 12-inches high from ankle to floor, the shoes were not originally intended to be worn in real life settings by ‘real’ people. “I used to do a lot of work with McQueen when he was alive,” she reflects. “I am very grateful for that, because I’m a great adventurer in all aspects of the world and I am comfortable embracing chaos — be in music or in costume. Now that he is gone, I just apply the same rules he taught me to whatever I’m wearing. McQueen made me a perfectionist about how things fit.” Model, socialite, designer and singer, Daphne Guinness is heir to the Guinness brewery dynasty. She is the granddaughter of Diana Mitford and grew up between family homes in Ireland, England, and Spain. At the age of 19 she married the Greek shipping heir Spyros Niarchos, with whom she had three children. They divorced in 1999. Guinness’ album Daphne & The Golden Chord, released on April 2018 was produced by longtime #DavidBowie collaborator #TonyVisconti, who also worked on Guinness’ debut album, 2016’s critically acclaimed #optimistinblack< • Unique visual magic: Optimist in Black • Utterly brilliant and perfect!!! • Miss your beautiful energy and great vibes!!!  #markusklinkoandindrani • #danielpalopdesigns #WorldOfFashion #bythebook #fashiongram #daphneguinness #fashiondiaries #thewaywewore #senseofmagic #truthfulimage #fashionmadness #daphneandthegoldenchord #embracingchaos #armadilloboots #visualworld #spiritualexperience #IsabellaBlow #leealexandermcqueen #creativeequals #uniquevisualmagic #themagicofmusic #fashionasfantasy #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment #stylepower #TheWorldOfInstagram

— | • - LET THERE BE LIGHT- • | — Giorgio Armani is an Italian legend and glory. The timeless quality of the Armani style is at the core of a language that remains true to itself, and still in line with times. It’s an inimitable sense of elegant glamour that has always conquered celebrities with a legendary allure. Armani reinvents the ‘80s look with a newfound freshness and modernity. Details like oversized bows and tiny leather rose hair pieces amped up the femininity of the collection — just in case all the impalpable tulle layers, flounces, bows and fine embroidery didn’t do so enough. The color palette is soft with powdered pink, washed blue sky, jade green enhanced by touches of black. The materials are contrasting with lightness and transparency. The impression is that of a clear water surface reflecting a ray of moonlight or sunlight.

REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST • Oskar Dieter Alex von Rosenberg, known as Alexis, Baron de Redé, the social grandee known for his opulent balls, fastidious manners and grand tastes, died in Paris 9 July 2004. Redé moved in the rarified circles of the last century’s aesthetes. He was known for throwing sumptuous parities, the apotheosis of which was his Oriental Ball in 1969, when he transformed the Hôtel Lambert into a lavish Eastern fantasy with turbaned figures on enormous papier-mâché elephants and platoons of half-naked Nubian torchbearers. “You couldn’t give a party like that today,” recalled Redé in a 1996 interview in W. “It would be impossible.” In 1949, Redé took up residence in one of the city’s impressive homes, the Hôtel Lambert, built by Louis Le Vau and with ceilings painted by Le Brun. Redé entered a vibrant social hubbub of larger-than-life, aesthetically obsessed characters —  and he lived up to their expectations. In the 21st century Redé had himself become something of a museum piece, remnant of a vanished milieu for whom a well-laid table was the greatest good to which humanity could aspire. “Most of the world moves too fast for hand-made shoes, and elegant lunches,” he reflected sadly before dying in 2004<  Savoir Vivre: “I confess that I am somewhat removed from the fray of life, happily distant from some of the more disagreeable aspects of modern life.

@fashionasfantasy @tinkerbell_fernando • There is no one who lives like that today. The Baron was one of the most outlandishly extravagant hosts the city of Paris had ever seen, the chicest and most refined in the world. Many thanks for tuning in!

- • CLOTHES MAKE THE WOMAN • - Outspoken - and often outrageous - his comments over the years, whether by him or his alter ego, Louise J. Esterhazy, were an accurate reflection of who he was. John B. Fairchild was more quotable than most of the people his publications wrote about. Here are some of his observations. “Clothes aren’t what it’s all about any longer. A woman can have the most beautiful clothes in the world and the most beautiful face, but if she isn’t fun and amusing, if she doesn’t move correctly, if she’s not with what is going on today, she isn’t interesting as a personality.” • “You have to be shallow to spend more than a certain amount of time on how you look. The majority of women on the Best Dressed List bore me to death.” • Most women look awful in pants and should never wear them unless the pants are very well cut and the ladies are very well cut.” • “It is the mark of a badly dressed woman when she doesn’t dress her age. There is no sense going against nature.” • It is difficult for older women, unless they have lots of money, to find clothes that are well made and in good taste. The whole idea of American fashion is geared to youth... I think the middle-aged woman is neglected.” • Do Clothes Make The Woman?#danielpalopdesigns #WorldOfFashion #doclothesmakethewoman? #whatyouwearmatters #thewaywewore #clothesspeaklouderthanwords #dressyourage #vintagefashion #dressedtoimpresss #upcloseandstylish #TheWorldOfFashion #clothesdontmakethewoman #fashionasfantasy #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités #johnbfairchild #alterego #fashionary #TheWorldOfInstagram #clothesmakethewoman

— | • THE JOYS OF SUMMER • | —Summer in the Art • Artists at Work • Summer itself represents grand burst of energy. It represents in paintings dedicated to this season in plenty of light and bright color, in clear sky and fresh wind, in all the glory of nature. Sun, warmth and joy are main themes in most of summer paintings. Summer left great mark in Impressionism and postimpressionism. “Tahitian Landscape” by Paul Gauguin was inspired by the untouched nature of Tahiti, where the artist went to escape European civilization • The year 1907 was a turning point for John Singer Sargent as a portraitist in favor of plein air painting. This strong and lively work aptly captures that moment of transition, combining landscape and portraiture in a composition that speaks to friendship and painterly pursuits while also celebrating color, surface, and fleeting effects of light and movement • The Villa’s grand Baroque terraced gardens and fountains provided subjects for watercolors by the American painter John Singer Sargent and more other painters •  The Fountain, Villa Torlonia, Frascati, Italy, 1907 • The couple is Wilfrid and Jane Emmet de Glehn, professional artists and Sargent’s frequent traveling companions. Although The Fountain has the appearance of spontaneity, Sargent was frequently interrupted by rain as he worked. He thus completed it over several days, requiring his friends to pose at length • #danielpalopdesigns #thejoysofsummer #letscelebratesummer @johnsingersargent @artinstitutechi #artinstitutechicago #JohnSingerSargent #americanartists #artistcouple #expatriates #janedeglehn #enpleinairpainting #artistfriends #womanartists #sketching #culturaladventure #fashionasfantasyart #liveartfully️ #artscultureandentertainment #summerpaintings #artistsartwork #lecabinetdecuriosités #TheWorldOfInstagram

— | • ALL THAT GLITTERED • | — Stories abound of millionaires with surly tempers, put-on airs and bad taste. Few stories, however, tell of anyone like Carlos de Beistegui, an international dandy whose character flaws were myriad but whose esthetic sense caused him to be widely admired as a rich man who deserved to be rich. Château de Groussay, just west of Paris was Beistegui’s home from 1939 until his death in 1970. The château was transformed into a temple to grande luxe romanticism with the help of his friend and protege Emilio Terry. Thanks to a weakness for fantasy and a passion for building — this talent turned into a certifiable mania in the early 1960s, after a series of psychologically disabling strokes — De Beistegui littered the grounds of Groussay with a magically bizarre assortment of exotic follies. Emilio Terry, an architect and designer who frolicked in the top echelon of French society in the middle of the 20th-century, came from a very wealthy and well-connected Cuban family. He was able to be very selective about the jobs he took on. He was never under financial pressure, and he also had a life as a society figure. Terry’s clientele included the cosmetic czarina Helena Rubinstein, shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos as well as prince Rainier III of Monaco (for whom he decorated an apartment intended for Princess Grace). And his most acclaimed project was the redesign and expansion of De Beistegui’s Château de Groussay, for whom Terry added an elaborate theatre and numerous large-scale garden follies, including a Chinese pagoda and a structure resembling a tent< •  One Man’s Folly: La Tente Tartare, Emilio Terry’s Swedish-inspired blue-and-white and parcel-gilt tole folly at Château de Groussay, in Montfort-l’Amaury •

The usual venue for Chanel’s seasonal runway shows — the Grand Palais — was packed with oversized photos of the late designer. Artistic director and set designer Robert Carsen put on a Lagerfeld spectacular that was as touching as it was powerful, said Suzy Menkes. “I wanted something full of life and unexpected,” Carsen told WWD of the scene. It was attended by many of the biggest names and faces in fashion, from model muses Gigi Hadid and Claudia Schiffer, to designers such as Ralph Lauren and Valentino Garavani.

- • A TRIBUTE: KARL FOR EVER • - Chanel and Fendi Pay Tribute to Karl Lagerfeld With a Joint Memorial Event in Paris • Amid colossal portraits and clean lines of black, white and red, Chanel and a gaggle of stars paid homage to the fashion titan and Kaiser of mode Karl Lagerfeld on Thursday. Featuring the ever reticent co-owner of Chanel Alain Wertheimer, the film was narrated by Lagerfeld himself, sewn together from dozens of clips before his death. The opera director and set designer Robert Carsen had shouldered responsibility for the impossible task of encompassing the mercurial intelligence and vast, multifaceted career of the greatest polymath ever to work in fashion. As guests streamed in, luxury worlds collided. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive Bernard Arnault chatted with Alain Wertheimer, the head of Chanel, who had removed his jacket in the balmy venue. Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault posed for photos with Sidney Toledano, chairman and CEO of LVMH Fashion Group, and Chanel fashion president Bruno Pavlovsky and was later seen chatting with Antoine Arnault. First Lady of France Brigitte Macron and Princess Caroline of Hanover rubbed shoulders with friends of Chanel such as Carole Bouquet, Inès de la Fressange, Claudia Schiffer, Caroline de Maigret and Carine Roitfeld. The celebration explored not only Lagerfeld’s long list of achievements, but highlighted anecdotes from those who knew him well< •  #HeleneArnault, LVHM Chairman and CEO #BernardArnault, and Chairman and CEO of LVHM Fashion Group #SidneyToledano attend #KarlForEver Memorial • #danielpalopdesigns #atribute #TheWorldOfFashion #KaiserKarl #robertcarsen #karLandChanel #KarlandFendi #chanelofficial #AlainWertheimer #BrunoPavlovsky #françoishenripinault #instafashion #KarlForEver2019 #fashionasfantasy #artscultureandentertainment #TheWorldOfInstagram #lecabinetdecuriosités

From the 1830 until 1917, the palace belonged to five generations of the elite aristocratic Yusupov dynasty. Many noteworthy pages from the history of Russia and St Petersburg are connected with the family residence on the Moika. The palace went down in Russian history as the scene of the assassination of Grigory Rasputin, the Siberian peasant who became the spiritual mentor and friend of the family of Emperor Nicholas II at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The young prince kept diving for his dad while Kate held him. A few moments later though, the little prince made his way back to the Duchess of Cambridge, by that time, the airplanes started whizzing above him, and soon little Louis had forgotten who was holding him at all. He then began excitedly pointing and frantically waving at the RAF-flypast above him.

- | • TROOPING THE COLOUR • | - The official celebration of the Queen’s Birthday, is nearly here, with Union Jack-clad merrymakers set to gather at the Mall in London to catch a glimpse of the Royal family. Since 1748, Trooping the Colour is held in London annually on a Saturday in June at Horse Guards Parade by St James’s Park, and coincide with the publication of the Birthday Honours List. According to the BBC the tradition was started in 1748, when King George II decided that he wanted good weather on his birthday, which was actually in November. To solve the the cold weather issue, the King decided to throw an annual military parade every summer, and the tradition stuck. The Queen has only missed one a Trooping the Colour celebration, in 1955, when the event was cancelled due to a national rail strike. In the past, the Monarch participated on horseback and trotted through the event, but she prefers to ride a carriage now< • The Queen’s Birthday Parade 2019 will take place on The Mall and Horse Guards Parade tomorrow morning #QBP2019 • Enjoy ! • #danielpalopdesigns #troopingthecolour #britishroyalfamily #QueenElizabethII #celebration #unionjack #hmqueenelizabethii #parademilitary #royalbirthdaytheme #guards #buckinghampalacelondon #horseguardsparade #royalhorseguard #britishtraditions🇬🇧 #troopingthecolour2019 #fashionasfantasyroyalty #TheWorldOfInstagram #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment

Every element of the State Banquet is inspected, checked and approved by the Queen, right down to every last detail. And so it all comes together, finally, at 8pm on the night of the Banquet.  Pomp and Circumstance: The horseshoe-shaped table was decorated with huge bouquets of roses, mixed peonies, sweet peas, larkspur, and mixed foliage in shades of summer pink. Other decor included more than 100 ivory-colored candles and displays of seasonal fruits. The menu included steamed halibut with watercress mousse and saddle of lamb • #danielpalopdesigns #USStateVisit #StateBanquet #celebratinginstyle #OfficialStateVisit #pompandcircumstance #diplomaticreception #theartofthetable #banquetingtable #britishroyalfamily #hermajestythequeen #QueenElizabethII #buckinghampalacelondon #FirstLady #Flotus #fashionasfantasy #TheWorldOfInstagram #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités #usstatevisit🇺🇸🇬🇧

- • HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES • - Only because he is a member of the Royal Family do people also take an interest in how he dresses. Nothing he is wearing is particularly remarkable, there are no statement pieces or fashion-forward silhouettes. He is sweaty, hot and handsome at the polo field, or Brideshead-ishly riding a bicycle around Cambridge in tweeds or looking like he just stepped off the pages of a Ralph Lauren lookbook on naval duty in the Caribbean. He just looks effortlessly... correct. “Prince Charles never follows trends, but still manages to look stylish,” says Jeremy Hackett, of the outfitters Hackett. “He kept wearing double-breasted suits when everyone else had switched to single. Now he’s made that double-breasted style his own.” “I have lurched from being the best-dressed man to being the worst-dressed man,” he said. “Meanwhile, I have gone on — like a stopped clock.” — Charles acknowledged his accidental status as a fashion icon at the launch party of London Collections, Men Fashion Week at St Jame’s Palace in 2012. As the most powerful brand ambassador for Great British menswear, Prince Charles is held in high esteem by many who have worked with him on his projects. He is a man of taste and culture, and his reign might prove most interesting. For a long time he has realised that his principal contribution to his country is as Prince of Wales< •  Prince Charles photographed by Alexi Lubomirski for Vanity Fair • #danielpalopdesigns #PrinceofWales #TheWorldOfInstagram #PrinceofWales #DukeofCornwall #PrinceCharlesofWales #anindeliblemark #WorldofFashion #jeremyhackett #artofliving #craftsmanshipmatters #classydapperdebonair #menwithclass #menwithstyle #dapperfashion #iconsofstyle #themountbattenwindsors #fashionasfantasy #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités #kingoffashion #theworldoffashion #britishmenswear

— | • BAROQUE SPLENDOR • | —  Baroque in Brazil • The baroque in Brazil was introduced at the beginning of the seventeenth century by Catholic missionaries, especially Jesuits, who brought the new style as an instrument of Christian indoctrination • The São Francisco Church and Convent of Salvador, Bahia • Art: The most important characteristic of the church is its exuberant inner decoration, mostly executed in the first half of the 18th century. All surfaces inside — walls, pillars, vaults and ceilings — are covered by golden sculpted gilt woodwork and paintings. The altarpieces display Solomonic columns and concentric arches decorated with golden foliage, angels and birds, while the vaults of the aisles are covered by wooden panels with paintings. Of particular note are the carvings of eight massive Atlanteans support the lateral altars • Protected status: The convent of São Francisco is also an important repository of Baroque art. The wooden ceiling of the entrance hall (Portaria) was painted with scenes in illusionistic perspective by José Joaquim da Rocha in 1774 •  The São Francisco Church and Convent of Salvador is located in the historical centre of Salvador, in the State of Bahia, Brazil.

Once you walk away from the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco, especially in the winter, the place which Ruskin described, and Henry James and Thomas Mann and many others used as a place of desolate and shadowy drama, is still astonishing beautiful and resonant. Even though he reduced his palette to greys and yellows and dark greens for a painting of the waterfront in 1882, for example, nonetheless of the church of the Salute in the hazy distance makes clear this was the Venice of artists. As time went on, Sargent slowly tired of painting the city’s working class and became more interested in the glory of its stones and its interiors. When he become a regular visitor, painting in Venice almost every year between 1898 and 1913, producing more than 150 oils and watercolors, he did mainly architecture and topography • John Singer Sargent returned to Venice many times during his life, endlessly fascinated with this enchanting city. In paintings filled with vivid colors and dazzling light, he sought to capture the vitality and unique ambiance, often working while afloat in a gondola< •  Venice...

- • ICON: MARISA BERENSON • - Marisa Berenson was set for stardom from the beginning, with a Vogue shoot by Henry Clarke in March 1952. But she wasn’t predestined for the world of fashion. Her grandmother, Elsa Schiaparelli, had shut her fashion house and looked quite disdainfully on her early modeling career and her hippie style when she lived with her in Paris • Her big brake: Diana Vreeland (legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue US) launched her career. She was a close family friend and when she was 16 she decided: “We have to photograph Marisa.” Her first photo shoot was with Bert Stern, followed by pictures for Glamour and by then she was working with magazines all over the world • Favorites: “I’ve always loved Dior and its ability to reinvent itself, along with Yves Saint Laurent for liberating women with its designs and Valentino for making women feel like princesses.” She also has pieces by Tom Ford and Giorgio Armani in her wardrobe • Beauty: Beauty is like elegance; very personal and relating more to an intangible aura than physical traits. But it’s also a lifestyle • Projects multiple: To continue as UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for peace and to continue to support the Robert Derbé children’s hospital, two causes particularly close to her heart • Marisa Berenson has lived many lives as a cover girl, model and actress for Visconti, Kubrick and Bob Fosse, and those hazel-green eyes have captivated the best photographers and directors for over 60 years< • #danielpalopdesigns #theworldoffashion #marisaberenson @marisaberensonofficial #elegance #allure #styleandsubstance #theworldofinstagram #themodernicons #innatechic #styleiconstatus #thosewerethedays #thewaywewore #iconsofstyle #muse #timelessstyleicon #imaginativeflair #elsaschiaparelli #bnw_perfection #fashionssfantasy #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités

- • DIOR’S BALL TO REMEMBER • - Dior and the Venetian Heritage Foundation will host a charity dinner and a masked ball on May 11, coinciding with the opening of the Biennale in Venice. Guests will be invited to attend wearing costumes matching the theme of the ball, which is dedicated to 18th-century Venetian artist Giambattista Tiepolo. The “Tiepolo Ball” marks the Venetian Heritage Foundation’s 20th anniversary and will be held at the Baroque 17th-century Palazzo Labia in Venice — brimming with masterpieces by Tiepolo, and the same location where the “Bal Oriental” was held on Sept. 3, 1951. Dubbed the “ball of the century,” it was hosted by art collector and interior decorator Charles de Beistegui, at the time the owner of the palace, and attended by some 1,000 guests, including Christian Dior, Salvador Dalí and Orson Welles. In his autobiography, Dior described that evening as “the most beautiful” he had ever seen and that he would ever see and the event “a true work of art.” In addition to creating a costume for Dalí, Dior designed ballgowns for other guests and, in particular, French socialite and Harper’s Bazaar editor Daisy Fellowes. Dressed as “the Queen of Africa,” Fellowes was photographed by Cecil Beaton in front of the Tiepolo fresco in the palazzo celebrating Anthony and Cleopatra, in an iconic portrait that ran in Vogue and made history. In addition to Venetian Heritage Foundation chairman Peter Marino, Dior artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri and chairman and chief executive officer Pietro Beccari, expected guests include Karlie Kloss, Sienna Miller, Cindy Sherman and Francesca Amfitheatrof, among others< •  Christian Dior and Marie-Louise Bousquet at the ball in 1951 • #danielpalopdesigns @dior @labiennale #labiennaledivenezia #venetianheritagefoundation #charitydinner #TiepoloBall #petermarinoarchitect #petermarino #venetianheritage #dior #veniceitaly #baroque #17thcentury #palazzolabia #lebaloriental #ballofthecentury #CharlesdeBeistegui #GiambattistaTiepolo #beisteguiball #atrueworkofart #cecilbeaton #daisyfellowes #mariagraziachiurifordior #pietrobeccari #theworldofinstagram #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment

To this day the recipe for the scones remains true and continues to be a well kept secret!

- • A WORLD WITHIN A WORLD • - Take Pleasure in Thai Traditions on the Andaman Sea • We’re clinging on to that summer vibe with this gorgeous pool and room with a view and here’s hoping you have one this weekend! Have fun wherever you’re... • Poking out of the palm canopy across the hillside, the distinctive pointed roofs of pavilions evoke the architecture of Ayutthaya, ancient capital of Siam.

— | • A PLACE IN THE SUN • | — Opulence has continued to be a hallmark of Barbados’ west coast, this is due in part to the influence of two men, Sir Edward Cunard and Ronald Tree, who stamped their identities on Barbados just after the Second World War. Tree was a Conservative MP who had served in Churchill’s War Cabinet. Cunard a scion of the shipping line, with a splendid house overlooking the ocean called Glitter Bay, a byword for refined relaxation on winter holidays. Beguiled by the place after visiting Cunard in January 1946, Tree bought a nearby plot of land and built his own house, Heron Bay, in 1947. His architect, Sir Jeoffrey Jellicoe designed a magnificent coral stone Palladian villa, modeled on the Villa Barbaro, in Maser, Italy, and Tree’s friends flocked to stay; and with such a degree of enthusiasm that in 1961 Tree opened a hotel, Sandy Lane, just along the beach, on a former sugar estate. The smart set alighted there, and migrated into the palatial villas that replaced former fisherman’s shacks (a number of them designed by Oliver Messel, Lord Snowdon’s uncle). Mick Jagger rubbed shoulders with Princess Margaret, and Claudette Colbert came every winter to her Georgian plantation house, Bellerive, along with her friend Frank Sinatra and the socialite swans Babe Paley and Slim Keith • Heron Bay is now owned by the Bamford family, who allowed Tony Blair to avail himself of its beachside facilities when he came on holiday to Cliff Richard’s villa. Sandy Lane was taken over and rebuilt by an Irish investment syndicate< •  What more could you ask of a house? “A most beautiful house, totally welcoming, totally easy”.

Designed by the architect Carlo Fontana, in the Roman Baroque style, the villa was built in 1680 by Cardinal Flavio Chigi for Pope Alexander VII. The gardens at Villa Cetinale are filled with climbing roses, irises, and vine-covered pergolas, in the spring months the wisteria covers the Villa walls and walkways in a sea of purple. Fields of poppies and wild flowers contrast with cypresses, olive trees and vineyards, and geometrically shaped flowerbeds lined with box hedges surround the citrus garden. Cetinale, one of 70 gardens profiled by early 1900s author Edith Wharton’s Italian Gardens published in 1997. Some of the gardens had been bombed in two wars, while others were spoiled by tourism or neglect. Cetinale, featured in the cover of Russell’s book had been restored by Lord Lambton over the past 40 years. Penelope Hobhouse, the internationally acclaimed garden designer, has called Cetinale ‘the epitome of garden design’, and has written that the flower garden is ‘one of the most beautiful in Italy’.

— • LADY AMANDA HARLECH • — Amanda Harlech is one of the fashion industry’s leading authorities on style. There has often been confusion about exactly what Harlech’s job role was with Lagerfeld. “My job isn’t to be on this muse pedestal to be just looked at,” Harlech says with a smile. “I am an arch assimilator. I am quite good at understanding what somebody means. Fashion is the process of articulating an idea, and a proposal of what to wear.” “Karl was a mentor and a teacher, an orchestra director that demanded the best performance from those around him. He enters into your world like a shining star, so compulsive and irresistible, and eventually, your life ends up revolving around him, he lights the way. “Working” for Karl didn’t ever seem like “work.” It was more like a journey, an adventure, or a discovery,” she told The Independent. Her father explained to the Sunday Times: “She is the eyes and ears... she can instantly see how something might be improved and this is a gift... I know she’s a considerable contributor to what Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel do.” “I find the whole process of fashion a fascinating quest of discovery,” Harlech said to The Independent. Harlech divides her time between Shropshire and Paris. In Shropshire, she has an idyllic home where she rides her eight horses and looks after her two dogs and two cats. In 1997, Harlech was added to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame< •  Amanda Harlech photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for The Little Black jacket book in 2012.

— • THE VISUAL METAPHORS • — Great Style or Grand Manner • History Painting • Eighteenth-century British artists and patrons used the terms “Grand Manner” or “Great Style” to describe paintings that utilized visual metaphors. By extension, the Grand Manner came to include portraiture - especially at full length and in life size - accompanied by settings and accessories that conveyed the dignified status of the sitters. Classical architecture, for instance signified one’s civilized demeanor, whole woodland glens implied natural sincerity. The postures and gestures in Grand Manner portraits were often derived from Roman sculpture or Italian Renaissance paintings. Another major precedent was early seventeenth-century English court portraiture by the two Flemish masters knighted by King Charles I, Sir Peter Paul Rubens and Sir Anthony van Dyck. The connoisseur was expected to appreciate these artistic sources and their subtle references, just as educated readers were assumed to recognize author’s quotations from earlier literature< •  Strike a Pose: Regardless of their different techniques and attitude, both Reynolds and Gainsborough incorporated into their Grand Manner portraits the social symbolism expected by their clients • #danielpalopdesigns #visualmetaphors #portraitsofpower #sirpeterpaulrubens #siranthonyvandyck #discourseonart #classicart #housesgardenspeople #livingwithart #thegrandmanner #socialsymbolism #royalacademyofart #poetical #aculturaladventure #greatstyle #civilizeddemeanor #subtlereference #portraitureinspirations #grandmannerportrait #poetical #fashionasfantasy #theworldofinstagram #lecabinetdecuriosités #artscultureandentertainment

Effortless Chic • The Modern Icons • Style maven Lauren Santo Domingo co-founded luxury e-tail site Moda Operandi in 2010. The innovative site allows avid shoppers to pre-order a select edit of catwalk looks directly after they are presented during fashion week through a series of online trunk shows, turning a six-month wait into a “buy-now” experience. “I was lucky to work for two women, Anna Wintour and Carolina Herrera, who were both actually accessible and relatable in the way they dressed every day. They both relied on uniforms: Anna in her floral dresses and signature necklaces, while Carolina wore fabulous jewelry with a white button-down. They are not wearing super strong fashion to throw you off. They were important role models in my life, so I, too, try to be as accessible and approachable as possible,” says Santo Domingo. Considered one of the most influential New Yorkers of the past 25 years, Santo Domingo was inducted into Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame In 2017. Lauren is a fundraiser for democratic political candidates such as Joe Kennedy and Kamala Harris •  Her motto: “I always ask myself why be boring? With everything we do it’s easy to fall into a rut, to do the same thing, so I challenge myself, my team, my friends, designers to always try something new. I think the crux of that is not to take yourself too seriously, and not to take fashion so seriously. Have fun, try new things, enjoy yourself, and be confident”> • Have an inspiring day! • #danielpalopdesigns #theworldoffashion #theworldofinstagram @modaoperandi @thelsd #iconofstyle #fashionisbeauty #classicstyles #worldfashion #fashionmoments #indetail #truestyle #themodernicons #modaoperandi #modaoperanditrunkshow #laurensantodomingo #stylemaven #effortlesschic #elegancepersonified #streetchic #styleicons #thelsd #fashionmeetsperformance #thepowerofstyle #innatechic #upcloseandstylish #fashionismagic #elementsofstyle #stylesightworldwide #fashionasfantasy #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités

- • FRAGMENTS OF AN EMPIRE • - The coronation of Napoleon as Emperor of the French took place on Sunday 2 December 1804, at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It marked “the instantiation of modern empire“ and was a “transparently masterminded piece of modern propaganda.” Napoleon wanted to establish the legitimacy of his imperial reign, with its new royal family and new nobility. To this end, he designed a new coronation ceremony unlike that for the Kings of  France • On 2 December 1804, Napoleon was crowned Emperor of the French. Over 12,000 people were present at the ceremony which lasted for more than four hours in the freezing Cathedral of Notre Dame. The Pope also made a special trip from Rome for the ceremony. However, in placing the crown upon his head himself and crowning his own wife Josephine, Napoleon succeeded in reducing the Pope to a simple blessing of the ceremony, thus reaffirming his power in face of the Catholic Church. Napoleon planned every detail of the ceremony which was intended to put him on an equal footing with other European monarchs • Napoleon Bonaparte, 1769 - 1821 •  The Smell of Ages: Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon I and Coronation of the Empress Josephine in the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris by Jacques-Louis David, completed 1808 • “Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go.” — Napoleon Bonaparte • #danielpalopdesigns #portraitsofpower @napoleon.bonaparte_france #NapoleonBonaparte #napoleonbonapartequote #coronation #1804 #notredamecathedral #historicalceremony #firstempire #historymemes #jacqueslouisdavid #portrait #propaganda #leadershipquotes #fashionasfantasy #theworldofinstagram #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités #fragmentsofanempire

— | • CHIC AS CHIC CAN BE • | — Marriage of the Century • Grace Defined • The wedding dress of the American actress Grace Kelly, worn during her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco on 19 April 1956, is cited as one of the most famous since the mid 20th century. One author describes the dress as “adding to the marital fervor and elevating matrimonial fashion,” and a major influence on women who strove to “emulate Kelly’s peau de soie and lace masterpiece.” It was designed by Helen Rose of MGM. The dress consisted of a bodice with an attached under-bodice and skirt to support. There were two petticoats, one being an attached foundation. The wedding attire included a headdress, veil, shoes and the lace-and-pearl-encrusted prayer book which she carried down the aisle. The Philadelphia Museum of Art, which now owns the dress, displayed it at the Museum between April and May 2006 and reported it to have been arguably its most popular exhibit> •  Privilège du Blanc: Decades before Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge wowed the world with their bridal fashion, American actress Grace Kelly set the standard for royal weddings in her 1956 marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco.

@fashionasfantasy @rodowall • Solidarity or Sounding Board? • In the wake of horrific tragedy, social media has unified people to say not only am I paying attention, but I am trying to understand you. Social media becomes a forum for grief and fellowship; expression through this medium is an indirect means of offering virtual condolence to the bereaved and support. Ways of processing with tragedy. We were moved by the social media solidarity that ensued throughout the four corners of the world. Thank you!!! 😍

The barefoot vibes is unashamedly decadent with design influences from Maldivian, Chinese and Balinese architecture> •  Views to die for: “It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined” - Henry James • Happy Friday! • #danielpalopdesigns @ooreethirah #outofthisworld #fridayvibes #onthewaterfront #beachchic #longingforsummer️ #iconicimages #lifeinthewaterisbetter #islandidyll #tropicalislandliving #ooreethirah #toptrophydestinations #OOnlyHere #wanderlust  #lifeofadventure #maldivesresorts #reethibeachresort #reethiday #bliss #maldiven #sunnysideoflife #barefootvibes #fashionasfantasy #theworldofinstagram #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités

France decorator Frédéric Méchiche has been described as Merlin-like for his ability to transform spaces with dramatic flair. Méchiche does not like to fill his spaces with much furniture. He is a wonderful example of making contrast designs. His collection of treasures never seems overdone and the house has an unflappable mood throughout. In his house in Paris old world beauty and new world soul were never a more perfect match. In the living room of a Paris apartment, recently refreshed by the designer, ornate chandeliers mix with contemporary art, including Jeff Koons’ plaster/blown-glass sculpture from the “gazingball” series, and Spanish conceptual artist Juan Garaizabal’s Vase Tuileries. There is splendor in every room. The house articulates a contemporary minimalism, softened with the patina and texture of time>  Classic mise en scéne: Juan Garaizabal’s Vase Palais Tuileries is framed by soaring windows in the great room of a Paris apartment. Jeff Koons’ white plaster sculpture anchored by a blue “Gazingball” of hand blown-glass overlooks the seating area of the living room • Majestic ! • Sumptuous Photography by the legendary JFJ @jeanfrancoisjaussaud • #danielpalopdesigns #acollectorshome #housesgardenspeople #theworldofinstagram #spaceoftheweek #frédéricméchiche #fredericmechiche #workinprogressart #curatedinteriors #liveartfully #stylishinteriors #contemporaryartwork ##jeanfrancoisjaussaud #juangaraizabal #sculptor #artist #galeriaalvaroalcazar #scènesdintèrieur #dramaticflair #luxuriousdetailing #fashionasfantasy #worldofinteriors #artscultureandentertainment #lecabinetdecuriosités

INSPIRED ARTISTS : LES LALANNE The French sculptor Claude Lalanne, known for her work in copper and bronze inspired by flora and fauna, died today in Fontainebleau, near Paris at the age of 93. Claude Lalanne was born in Paris and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the École des Arts Décoratifs. Lalanne and her husband Françoise-Xavier began exhibiting their work together, as Les Lalanne. Claude became known to the larger public in France in 1976 when the singer Serge Gainsbourg selected one of her works, the man with the head of a cabbage, for the title and cover of an album. “Claude Lalanne had an extraordinary eye,” says her Parisian gallerist Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand. “Her work is imbued with a fantastic understanding and intuition of the magical side of nature that she metamorphosed.” Les Lalanne are represented by Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City and Ben Brown Fine Art in London> • Farewell dear Claude  RIP • A brilliant, creative mind!  Mouton de Laine: Sheeps were a recurrent theme in their work. “I thought that it would be funny to invade that big living room with a flock of sheep,” François-Xavier once explained. Yves Saint Laurent used to lounge on his Lalanne sheep in the garden of his apartment on rue Bonaparte in Paris • The surrealist legacy of Les Lalanne • #danielpalopdesigns @claudelalanne @paulkasmingallery @benbrownfinearts  #inspiredartists #paulkasmingallery #benbrownfinearts #jeangabrielmitterrand #claudelalanne #françoisxavierlalanne #leslalanne #sculptors #womenartists #surrealism #modernism #frenchart #womenartistsofinstagram #ripclaudelalanne #artandfashion #fashionasfantasy #fashionasfantasyart #artscultureandentertainment #theworldofinstagram #lecabinetdecuriosités
