The Queen of Bermuda

My recent trip to Bermuda centered upon a recent museum placement of Scott McBee’s large painted work “Queen of Bermuda.” The Gala opening of “We are Sailing” held by the Masterworks Foundation Museum commenced a stunning exhibition showing Bermuda’s relationship to the sea, and provides the perfect opportunity for the museum to prominently display their recent Mcbee acquisition. An entire section of the show is dedicated to the great liner, “Queen of Bermuda,” and includes photos, furniture, china, silver, and a remarkable video montage collected from various sources showing life on board the “Queen.” McBee’s series of ocean liner paintings stir up nostalgia for a lost era when the journey was the best part of getting to one’s destination – a good thought to apply to life in general!

There is an old school more formal vibe in Bermuda, a jacket is almost mandatory for dinner or any smart party. I chose a palette of purple, lavender, turquoise and minty aqua mixed with white and beige. Dressed to celebrate McBee’s success, I’m wearing a Gucci minty -aqua cotton suit, with a Tom Ford french cuff shirt in lavender end on end cotton with contrast white collar and a lavender cotton Glenn plaid cotton pocket square, Seaman Schepps cufflinks in silver pearls with pale blue sapphire, purple alligator belt with sterling buckle by Ralph Lauren and python loafers by Gucci.
