Welcome to our fall Fashion issue! From our dazzling cover image, to Jacopo Giustiniani’s inspiration for the upcoming La Centrale Food Hall at Brickell City Centre, to the I-really-really-want-that Love jacket by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, this edition of INDULGE is an amalgamation of intoxicating Italian taste, talent, allure, apparel and adornment sure to make you fall in love with fall.
We knew we were off to a splendid start as models Marianne Faina and Carrie Lee, two smart and radiant women, joyfully captured Miami’s beauty and warmth while gracing the stunning installations at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and at Pérez Art Museum Miami. During the parts of the photo shoot that were visible to the public, it was great to see how museum patrons — from local school children to tourists — couldn’t help stopping to get a glimpse of art in the making.
Our captivating images have inspired quite a few explorations. We’ve heard from many of you, our INDULGE readers, about how you dog-ear and even tear out pages of the magazine in search of the experiences and recommendations shared by our writers. This issue’s Dish column by Shayne Benowitz is one story that’s certain to be folded, clipped and shared. My husband and I have been planning a return trip to Italy, and if Giustiniani’s vision for La Centrale — “to feel like a trip, a tour, a vacation in Italy without taking a plane” — is realized, then Bill and I will be vacationing at Brickell City Centre for the holidays.
Now that we’ve dished, let’s Pour. I say grazie to Dinkinish O’Connor for selecting six distinct wine options to savor and share with friends and family. Her description of the 2007 Saracco Pinot Nero’s “aromatics reminiscent of a thrift store, old records, goat musk and gloves fresh from picking truffles” is sure to end up on the gift card adorning this bottle’s graceful neck.
Of course, who deserves a fabulous, fashionable gift more than yourself? One of my favorite fashion items is the classic denim jacket. Truth be told, I own three. I find this garment to be a malleable layer, perfect for our South Florida transitions from a warm and balmy climate to an often too-chilly air-conditioned environment. Each of my jackets expresses a different vibe: structured and chic; worn and comfy; and a sophisticated black version ready to adorn any party dress. I thought I was set until Claudia Miyar, our contributing style editor, selected an embellished beauty for our Indulgence. Hmmm, maybe I can persuade my husband that all “we” are missing is a unisex jacket to add to my collection!
All of us at INDULGE hope that you have recovered as best as possible from Hurricane Irma and can enjoy our foray into Miami’s exciting fashion assets. And we hope that this issue inspires some local discoveries of your own. May your personal style shine this autumn, and all year ’round.
