Exclusive couture pieces are being highlighted in the fashion department, including an evening gown by Ralph & Russo, Bottega Veneta’s Knot Clutch in 18-carat gold and an embellished jacket from Balmain.

There are also limited-edition pieces such as a redesign of Coco Chanel’s clock as well as unique accessories such as an Excalibur Aventador S Blue watch from Roger Dubuis.
“With Rarity, we wanted to ensure that our curated selection of rare finds showcases that ‘rare product’ can take many forms,” said Michael Ward, managing director at Harrods.
“Further to this, the way in which we consume products has taken a seismic shift the last decade. With the rise of digital, owning and purchasing goods can be instantaneous, but comes with the risk of increasing homogeneity. So we wanted to ensure that customers had a sensory experience to compliment

Asia Society Gears Up to Showcase Philippine Golden Treasures

THE GOLDEN TICKET: To add another dimension to its upcoming exhibition “Philippine Gold: Treasures of Forgotten Kingdoms,” Asia Society will spotlight an assortment of Filipino designers in its Upper East Side lobby in Manhattan. Jewelry designer and gallery owner Federico De Vera dreamed up the latter, which will be billed as “Filipino Design Now” and launches on Sept. 11.
While Asia Society Museum visitors will find 100 Philippine gold objects, artifacts and jewelry from the 10th to 13th centuries, the more contemporary outpost will feature pieces from 14 designers including jewelry from Josie Natori, Wynn Wynn Ong and Bea Valdes; fashion from Lenora Cabili and Ditta Sandico, and evening bags from Tina Ocampo and Rafe Totengco. Each designer was invited to create products that reflect their interpretation of Philippine culture. Meant to increase appreciation for Filipino design, materials and craftsmanship, Filipino Design Now will be on view in the lobby with some items available for sale at AsiaStore and online.
The main exhibition will be organized in four sections — Archeology, Trade, The Kingdom of Butuan and Surrounding Kingdoms. Most of the works will be on loan from the Ayala Museum and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Gold Collection and have never

Marvelous Old Mansions and Other Southern Treasures

Marvelous Old Mansions and Other Southern Treasures


Southerners have always been proud of their heritage, and there is no place where this pride shows more than the restoration of historic homes. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Southern landowners built lavish testaments to their wealth. After the Civil War, many of these once-wealthy planters found themselves struggling financially. As a result, some of these architectural treasures were lost. Beginning in 1858 with the chartering of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, Southerners began to preserve and restore their grand homes. Organizations such as the Daughters of the Revolution, the Colonial Dames, and the Daughters of the Confederacy, as well as historic foundations all rallied to preserve what Sherman’s March to the Sea and America’s march toward progress had not yet discovered. In Marvelous Old Mansions and Other Southern Treasures, you’ll find 132 historic homes, eight gardens, and thirteen living villages of historic districts. These sites are located throughout Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Some of the mansions were the homes of famous men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson. Others were home to less-known men who poured their heart, soul, and fortune into their property. Certain houses may seem less grand than others at first glance, but they all played important roles in the history of their home states. Whether you’re interested in architecture, interior decorating, antiques, and history or simply looking for a way to spend an enjoyable day, this book will expose you to some of America’s most lasting treasures.
