Think outside of the floral bouquet this Thanksgiving. This bold persimmon arrangement is equally lush, striking and festive, with its warm pops of color and berry branches. Just place into a low bowl, like Tory does here — it makes for a great standalone piece or as a tabletop highlight surrounded by tealight candles.
It was a conversation not to be missed. Today, Tory chatted with Business of Fashion Founder Imran Amed in London. Relive the moment — and catch every word of wisdom here.

If you’re in New York, swing by The Line at 76 Greene Street to see a one-night-only exhibit tonight by designer and photographer Hanuk. While his trademark nighttime snapshots feature a series of kisses from lensman to subject, here Hanuk explores ideas of symmetry and loneliness; each abstract painting comes with a twin, cut from the same canvas. We chatted with the artist about these self-described “proto-forms” and their relation to love and… martinis.Read More
You know you’ve made it when you’re known by a single-name moniker — Madonna, Halston, Iman. And jewelry designer JAR, a.k.a. Joel Arthur Rosenthal, has certainly made it. Ever since the Bronx native decamped to Paris in the Sixties, he’s catapulted himself into that rarified world of Place Vendôme jewelers, not the easiest of cliques to crack. His clients have included Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Firyal of Jordan, Ellen Barkin and Francois Pinault. Meanwhile, his jewelry — breathtakingly crafted and seemingly painted with pavé stones — simply mesmerizes. Check it out for yourself at the impressive Jewels by JAR show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its first-ever exhibit dedicated to a contemporary jeweler — or as the museum dubs him, an “artist of gems.”
