Kering Sponsors Return of Historic Héloïse and Abélard Chest to France

TRUE ROMANCE: The so-called Héloïse and Abélard reliquary chest is to go on display in public for the first time as part of this year’s European Heritage Days, thanks to the patronage of Kering.
The chest, which contains relics and documents relating to the story of Héloïse d’Argenteuil and Pierre Abélard, a tale of impossible love that is said to have inspired a number of romantic writers in the 18th century, will be presented at the luxury group’s Paris headquarters on the weekend of Sept. 15 and 16 before entering the collection of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. The luxury group’s historic headquarters, opened in September 2016, are in the former Laennec hospital on Rue de Sèvres.
Kering in supporting the project said it was responding to a call from the French Ministry for Culture and Communication to keep this “national treasure” in France.
“This reflects our commitment to preserving, enriching and promoting France’s artistic and cultural legacy. For these same reasons I wanted this national treasure to be unveiled to the public during the European Heritage Days, in an unprecedented dialogue with the Pinault Collection, in this exceptional venue,” said François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of Kering.

Prince William Lands in Jordan to Kick Off Historic Tour of the Middle East

Prince William has touched down for his historic visit to the Middle East.

On Sunday, the royal dad, 36, was welcomed in Jordan by Crown Prince Hussein, 23, who will be his host throughout the two-day stay in the country. The royal families in the U.K. and Jordan have strong links. (And the two princes attended the same military academy!)

William “is very pleased that this visit will allow him to begin a relationship with the Crown Prince Hussein that will be important in the decades to come,” William’s spokesman, Jason Knauf, said in a statement.

Kate Middleton, 36, is at home, where she remains on maternity leave from full-time royal duties since the birth in April of Prince Louis.

William’s first stop in Jordan was to Fablab, an initiative of the Crown Prince Foundation that seeks to help young entrepreneurs with the technology to realize their ambitions.

On Sunday evening, William was set to be the guest of honor at a birthday party for his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at the home of the British ambassador. He then headed for a dinner with the Crown Prince and will stay overnight at Beit al Urden, the private residence of King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan.

After dinner, the men made time to watch England play in the World Cup, Kensington Palace shared on Twitter.

During the next five days, the prince will continue his visit to Jordan, and move on to Israel and the disputed territories. William’s tour marks the first time a member of the British royal family has visited Israel on behalf of the U.K. government.

Knauf said in a statement before the visit, “The complex challenges in the region are of course well known. The non-political nature of His Royal Highness’s role — in common with all Royal visits overseas — allows a spotlight to be brought to bear on the people of the region: their cultures, their young people, their aspirations, and their experiences.”

Kering to Open Historic Paris Headquarters to Visitors

MODERN HOSPITALITY: Kering is opening its historic Paris headquarters to the public over a weekend this month, inviting visitors to explore the history of the 17th-century hospice through a virtual reality tour.
Developed by a French start-up Timescope and historians, the tour will focus on the site’s role as a hospital just over a century ago.
The hospital chapel will serve as the site of an exhibit of contemporary artwork from the Pinault Collection with pieces from Seung-Taek Lee, Chen Zhen and David Hammons.
Over the weekend of Sept. 16 and 17, visitors will also be able to inspect haute couture pieces designed by Cristóbal Balenciaga, dotted throughout the cluster of Left Bank buildings.
The temporary exhibits represent “heritage and creation,” said Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault, who was looking for a fresh way to show the site to the public for this year’s heritage days event.
The company celebrated its move into the headquarters a year ago, inviting designers, movie stars and local politicians to view art work from the Pinault Collection.

The War of 1812: A Guide to Battlefields and Historic Sites

The War of 1812: A Guide to Battlefields and Historic Sites


It has been almost two full centuries since a thin line of Canadian militiamen turned back an American army at Crysler’s Farm on the banks of the St. Lawrence, and the tattered Star-Spangled Banner flew through the night and into the dawn over Fort McHenry, surviving a storm of Royal Navy shot and shell. However, the approach of the war’s bicentennial has unleashed a cascade of interest in this smoky, old cannon-and-musket conflict. Lushly illustrated with more than 120 color photographs and archival paintings, this exciting documentary companion brings the war to life with vivid descriptions and insightful eyewitness accounts. Readers can relive key moments in the conflict by visiting battlefields and other relevant sites such as Queenstown Heights, Lundy’s Lane, Fort McHenry, and Chalmette Plantation outside New Orleans.

Stan Herman Offers Historic Take on Fashion and his Career

NEW YORK — Sixty-plus years into a multitiered fashion career, Stan Herman understandably had a lot to say during a 92Y question-and-answer session Tuesday night.
The designer, who headed up the Council of Fashion Designers of America from 1991 to 2006, offered an historical perspective that few could match. And he couldn’t have been more relaxed with Fern Mallis, who first interviewed him in 1968 after she won a Mademoiselle magazine contest. Diane von Furstenberg, Reed Krakoff, Yeohlee Teng, Steven Kolb and Bernadette Peters were among those who attended.
While designing uniforms for brands like McDonald’s, Avis, JetBlue and FedEx involved more of a low profile, Herman may be more recognizable with Middle America for the signature loungewear he has sold on QVC for 23 years. And Herman isn’t easing up on the gas pedal in his own life. Longevity is a family trait — his father, who had a chain of silk shops, lived until the age of 105, and only stopped working at 100 and gave up horseback riding at 93.
Having once had a summer job at Vogue Patterns and having lived in an 86th Street rooming house for $ 38 a month, Herman brought to life an era that is pretty much alien

Sotheby’s to Auction Historic Grey Pearl Necklace

ON THE BLOCK: One of the world’s rarest pearl necklaces will return to the auction circuit this October. Sotheby’s will auction “The Cowdray Pearls” at its Oct. 7 Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels sale, and estimates that the Cartier-signed piece could fetch between $ 4.5 and $ 7 million.
The necklace itself is composed of 42 extremely rare gray saltwater pearls, and the auction firm says it is a near-impossible occurrence to find that many grey pearls that create a proper match. The necklace is accompanied by a pair of matching earrings, with mounts also by Cartier.
Chin Yeow Quek, deputy chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and chairman of international jewelry, Asia, said of the lot: “Natural saltwater gray pearls are rarely seen at auction and the present necklace, strung with 42 superb gray pearls and of aristocratic provenance, is arguably the greatest of its kind in existence. This is an extraordinary collecting opportunity for pearl and jewellery connoisseurs around the world.”
Sotheby’s first auctioned the necklace in 1937. The piece originally belonged to the Viscountess Cowdray, Lady Pearson, who died in 1932.
The auction firm also holds the record for selling the most expensive natural gray pearl at auction, with the December 2012 sale of the Wrightsman Pearl brooch for

ISIS Destroys Temple In Syria’s Historic Palmyra, Activists Say

BEIRUT (AP) — Islamic State militants have destroyed a temple at Syria’s ancient ruins of Palmyra, activists said Sunday, realizing the worst fears archaeologists had for the 2,000-year-old Roman-era city after the extremists seized it and beheaded a local scholar.

Palmyra, one of the Middle East’s most spectacular archaeological sites and a UNESCO World Heritage site, sits near the modern Syrian city of the same name. Activists said the militants used explosives to blow up the Baalshamin Temple on its grounds, the blast so powerful it also damaged some of the Roman columns around it.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Sunday night that the temple was blown up a month ago. Turkey-based activist Osama al-Khatib, who is originally from Palmyra, said the temple was blown up Sunday. Both said the extremists used a large amount of explosives to destroy it.

Both activists relied on information for those still in Palmyra and the discrepancy in their accounts could not be immediately reconciled, though such contradictory information is common in Syria’s long civil war.

The fate of the nearby Temple of Bel, dedicated to the Semitic god Bel, was not immediately known. Islamic State group supporters on social media also did not immediately mention the temple’s destruction.

The Sunni extremists, who have imposed a violent interpretation of Islamic law across their self-declared “caliphate” in territory they control in Syria and Iraq, claim ancient relics promote idolatry and say they are destroying them as part of their purge of paganism. However, they are also believed to sell off looted antiquities, bringing in significant sums of cash.

Al-Khatib said the Baalshamin Temple is about 500 meters (550 yards) from the Palmyra’s famous amphitheater where the group killed more than 20 Syrian soldiers after they captured the historic town in May.

The temple dates to the first century and is dedicated to the Phoenician god of storms and fertilizing rains.

The head of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, said Friday that Islamic State extremists in Syria and Iraq are engaged in the “most brutal, systematic” destruction of ancient sites since World War II — a stark warning that came hours after militants demolished the St. Elian Monastery, which housed a fifth-century tomb and served as a major pilgrimage site. The monastery was in the town of Qaryatain in central Syria.

News of the temples destruction comes after relatives and witnesses said Wednesday that Khaled al-Asaad, an 81-year-old antiquities scholar who devoted his life to understanding Palmyra, was beheaded by Islamic State militants, his bloodied body hung on a pole. He even had named his daughter after Zenobia, the queen that ruled from the city 1,700 years ago.

Meanwhile in Iraq, at least 23 soldiers and government-allied militiamen were killed Sunday in an attack by Islamic State militants in the turbulent Anbar province west of Baghdad, Iraqi military and police officials said, in the second heavy death toll suffered by the Iraqi military and its allies in recent days in the vast Sunni region.

The officials said Sunday’s attack, which killed 17 soldiers and six Sunni militia fighters, took place in the rural district of Jaramshah, north of Anbar’s provincial capital, Ramadi.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

They said the Islamic State fighters used suicide bombings and mortar shells and that chief of army operations in Anbar, Maj-Gen. Qassim al-Dulaimi, was lightly wounded in the attack.

News of Sunday’s attack came two days after up to 50 soldiers were killed by the Islamic State group in two ambushes elsewhere in Anbar province, much of which is under militant control, including Ramadi and the key city of Fallujah.

Government forces and allied Sunni and Shiite militiamen have been battling the Islamic State militants in Anbar for months, but, hampered by suicide bombings and booby-trapped buildings, they have only made modest gains.

The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime Scene Investigation

The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime Scene Investigation


Even after more than two centuries, mystery continues to surround Meriwether Lewis’s death—did the famous explorer commit suicide or was he murdered? Recently revealed truths and deconstructed myths are woven together in this fascinating account to form an unforgettable tale of political corruption, assassins, forged documents, and skeletal remains. New research implicating General James Wilkinson—commanding general of the U.S. Army and coconspirator of Aaron Burr—as the assassin is thoroughly discussed, while riveting testimony from 13 leading experts in wound ballistics, forensic anthropology, suicide psychology, grave-site exhumation, and handwriting analysis offers new insight into what Lewis’s exhumed remains might reveal. The new evidence not only destroys the foundation of suicide arguments by proving the primary evidence is a forgery, it also proves the Indian Agent escorting Lewis lied about his activities on the day of Lewis’s death. The book also contains evidence of a previously unknown plot by Aaron Burr to seize New Orleans and invade Mexico in 1809, a repeat of his 1806 plot. It explains why Lewis suddenly changed his plans to travel to Washington, DC, by boat, and instead chose to go overland on the Natchez Trace, where he met his untimely death on October 11, 1809, at age 35.
