Ellsworth Kelly is having a moment. Well, another one. In honor of the artist’s 90th birthday next week, a number of museums are spotlighting his work, among them The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. On display till September 2nd, Ellsworth Kelly: Sculpture on the Wall features his influential monochrome paintings (above) as well as the massive Sculpture on the Wall centerpiece, which is having its own milestone moment. Originally installed in the Philadelphia Transportation Building, it’s the first time the work has been back in the City of Brotherly Love since it was removed and brought to New York in 1998.

South of the border, down Mexico way, is where we’ve most recently fallen in love. Of course, Tory’s long been a fan — artists’ haunt San Miguel and Tulum, with its ancient ruins, are two of her travel favorites — but the current object of our affection? Mexico City, where we’ve opened up a new boutique in Antara Polanco. Here’s our travel guide to the city’s must-see, must-visit and must-eat spots, from the best place for mescal to Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul. We’re even throwing in our very own Mexico playlist to get you in the mood.

There’s something magnetic about Mexico — from the culture scene in Mexico City to the beautiful ruins of Tulum to the vibrant art in San Miguel. The rich musical heritage runs deep, but there are also new sounds emerging that reflect how dynamic Mexico’s music roots are…and how much more there is to explore. To mark the opening of our boutique in Mexico City, Randall Poster put together this playlist for us.Read More
You’ve heard of camouflage, but never quite like this. Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes, who currently lives in Philadelphia, hides herself in plain sight by painting herself into landscapes and scenes. Just take a close look at the work above — you’ll see an outline of an arm, shoulders…. Here, we chat with the artist herself.Read More
A stylish raincoat doesn’t sound like the most elusive of fashion finds, yet Marie Saeki and Yurika Nakazono recognized a void in the market and, in 2009, launched Terra New York, a collection of city-chic rainwear and waterproof accessories. We spoke to Marie, who also owns her own public relations firm, and Yurika about the line and got their business advice, too.Read More
Alexis von Viragh is always looking for a new adventure. And on her travels, the Bangkok-based expat always collects good luck talismans, amulets and stones that she works into her signature necklaces. Alexis has crafted a capsule collection of necklaces that are available exclusively at our Madison Avenue boutique and on her own site. Here, we asked her about inspiration, superstition and style.Read More
Q: Some days, it’s warm. Some days, it’s cold. What do you wear in between seasons?
A: When the temperature could go either way, I rely on lightweight layers — especially if you’re in an office. I always have a tailored jacket that I can peel off or put on as needed. Right now, I love our Hayley jacket. It’s a light knit that feels like a cardigan but still has the right amount of tailored structure. I wear it with the Kyra polo. The scalloped pattern creates a cool optic and bold statement.
Happy birthday, Dia:Beacon! Located in a former Nabisco plant on the Hudson River, the museum is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend — complete with special events, installations and free admission on Saturday. If you’ve never been, it’s where Richard Serra’s mammoth steel Torqued Ellipses sculptures are housed and where you can be surrounded, all 360 degrees, by Andy Warhol’s Shadows. Here, we spoke to curator Yasmil Raymond, who shared her advice on collecting, curating and…planning the perfect art getaway.Read More
