With Super Bowl in sights, Saints see Dez Bryant as risk worth taking

A title run should offer the Saints depth insurance at wide receiver and the veteran player enough motivation to be at his best for three months.

Celebrity Pick Jenny Packham Sets Sights on Expansion in a Milestone Year

LONDON — Designer Jenny Packham is best known for her bridal gowns, red carpet sparklers and demure, printed or embellished dresses worn by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, but on the rocky terrain of British fashion — where so many companies struggle to survive — she’s also a member of an elite society of long-standing brands.
Her 30-year-old business, which she runs with her husband Mathew Anderson, is independent, profitable and makes its money from clothing — with the business split 50/50 between the eveningwear and bridal collections. She has a healthy wholesale business, a flagship on Mount Street here, and in July opened her first store in China at the Beijing Peninsula Hotel, a 153-square-foot space that carries her bridalwear.
Packham has always stuck to what she does best, and her clients — Emily Blunt, Kate Hudson, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Adele, Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Kerry Washington — keep coming back for more. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a Packham dress each time she appeared outside St. Mary’s Hospital for her photo op after giving birth.
On the opposite pole of the celebrity spectrum, Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones was also a big fan, with the stylist Patricia

Kuiu Sets Its Sights on High-end Hunting Enthusiasts

Jason Hairston doesn’t fit the mold of the typical apparel executive.
First off, he’s a former linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos who retired in 1996 after persistent problems from a broken neck put an end to his professional sports career.
And the apparel he produces is light years away from what’s shown on the runways of Milan and Paris.
But the former athlete is a case study in how to launch a successful niche brand and create unwavering loyalty from the target consumer.
This is the story of Kuiu.
After the neck injury ended Hairston’s football dreams, he started searching for his second chapter and began selling commercial real estate. Although he was successful, Hairston was unfulfilled and wanted to do something more suited to his passion for the outdoors — mainly hunting and fishing.
But rather than targeting the weekend warrior, Hairston set his sights on mountain hunters, the ones who spend two weeks — and a lot of money — in the wilderness searching for game. For this, they need high-tech gear that will stand up to the toughest elements in some of the wildest places on the planet.
Hairston spent a lot of time at outdoor specialists such as REI and

Noteworthy Sights in Miami Beach

Bal Harbour’s classically styled Admiralty apartments.

As Miami Beach welcomes art and design buffs in town for Art Basel this week–and prepares for its centennial celebrations next year–I thought it would be interesting to revisit some of the noteworthy buildings and landmarks that make this such a unique destination. And who better to tour the city with than artist Michele Oka Doner and art collector and Wolfsonian Museum founder Micky Wolfson. Doner and Wolfson–their fathers were each mayors of Miami Beach (Wolfson’s in the 1940s; Doner’s in the ’50s)–coauthored a magical book about the city, Miami Beach: Blueprint of an Eden (Feierabend Unique Books, 2005), and joined me recently for some architectural sightseeing.

The construction of the Morris Lapidus-designed Fontainebleau hotel blocked the sun from the adjacent Eden Roc hotel (also designed by Lapidus), earning it the nickname “Spite Wall.”

The snack bar at the Raleigh hotel, designed in 1940 by acclaimed architect L. Murray Dixon. The hotel has elegant Art Deco interiors and, according to Life magazine, “the most beautiful pool in America.”

One of the first stops on my tour of Miami Beach with Michele Oka Doner and Micky Wolfson was a single-story 1937 Art Deco post office, which has a rounded classical turret that turns the corner onto Washington Avenue.
