Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado, with its almost unbelievable landscapes, was the perfect setting for our story on page TK. The intimate resort, a collection of structures from an abandoned 19th-century mining town, along with faithfully re-created log cabins, sits astride the Dolores River, which lulled me to sleep each night.
In writer David Coggins’s book Men and Style: Essays, Interviews and Considerations (out October 11), he talks to a range of tastemakers about everything from their first cars and concerts to how they dressed as boys and during other phases in their lives. I told him about the Eurythmics and my trusting relationship with shoulder pads in the late ’80s.
Dries Van Noten tried for years to stage a runway show inside the legendary Palais Garnier, home of the Paris Opera. His wish was finally granted, resulting in one of the most ravishing shows I’ve ever seen. On the gigantic raked stage, among gilt covered sets, models paraded in a gorgeous array of clothing covered in elaborate bullion embroidery, regimental stripes and psychedelic patterns and colors. Bravo!
Bjarke Ingels’s ingenious Serpentine Pavilion temporary installation in London’s Kensington Gardens (through October 9), an undulating tower of stacked, hollow fiberglass boxes, is a must-see if you’re in town. The acclaimed Danish architect also designed Via 57 West, a stunning new apartment complex on Manhattan’s West Side that served as the inspiring location for our “Power Structure” story.

Quite an honor. Available September 16 at Bergdorf Goodman.
