James Andrew for Newel

I’ve always appreciated the great range of exceptional antiques and art at the Newel Gallery, and consequently it was an easy decision to make when I accepted a request to dress their gallery windows this month. With so many fabulous pieces to chose from, the real challenge lay (as is oft the case, unlimited resources or not) in the edit. That being said, I’m quite pleased with the final arrangement, which you will see, is comprised of a hugely disparate grouping of pieces—but all work quite well together, I think, creating a super chic conflation of modernist objects, art, and antique chinoiserie.

Do come visit the Newel to have a look at my windows (they’ll be on view through April) and to peruse the gallery’s superb collection.

On a chilly Spring day, I’m sporting a Gucci tweed topcoat, Tom Ford amber cashgora sweater, brown cotton corduroy pants, brown and white mini hounds tooth cotton shirt and brown tasseled leather loafers, Gucci sunglasses, vintage Rolex Oyster perpetual watch and my fragrance is Creed Bois du Portugal.

    Love, love, love you, and everything you do…wish you’d do a little piece on women’s clothes, because you have such a wonderful eye…you know, 10 pieces a woman shouldn’t live without? Well, if wishes were horses…, I also thought instantly of you when I saw Dian Pernet’s latest about the Louis Vuitton made to order men’s shoe service. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to walk about in them, knowing your initials are hot stamped inside the shoe?
