PALM BEACH THANKSGIVING

James Andrew Palm Beach

James Andrew Palm Beach

An invitation to attend a premier Palm Beach Thanksgiving gala provided us with more than enough incentive to escape the grim old city and head south to stay with some chic and delightful friends. The fĂȘte was all gilded age glamour, replete with a glittering guest list and the most magnificent Jeffery W. Smith designed mansion set amidst glorious gardens by Mario Nievera.

With copious holiday edibles and a deluge of drinkables I must say I was a bit worried that my Tom Ford suit would burst its seams!

This was old world Palm Beach at its best, and to honor the occasion I sported a Tom Ford ocean blue wool silk melange suit, Turnbull and Asser bespoke red and white striped cotton shirt with contrast white collar and French cuffs, precious turquoise cuff links, vintage Rolex, vintage red and royal dot print silk pocket square, Pierre Hardy cobalt suede demi boots, Tom Ford “Marco” sunglasses, Tom Ford bronzing gel for a bit of a sun-kissed glow, and my fragrance was Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.

    Hello My Dear Karena,

    Palm Beach certainly is one of the enclaves where people celebrate “sartorial splendour”- I of course am thrilled to oblige!

    Hope you had a lovely holiday!

  7. I had the thrill of meeting Mario N. when I visited PB with Brooke and Steve Giannetti and Lars Bolander took us around……

    what a darling, charming, and talented genius he is….and he knows my dearest friend Britty……We had so many fun laughs and ideas walking around the most divine place you ever saw! On the waterway…….(I just know water….and LOVE IT!)

    He meets so many people…..he may not remember….but I adored him!

    what a lovely, lovely place……it is so unusual!

    I also love another place in Florida……Hobe Sound….it is kind of a secret….and I will be in some trouble bringing it up. What say you???

  8. One more place I have not been but I have been told I would love: no accident…..just the place you finished a divine clubhouse! That Place!!!

    My adorable friend (Aubrey…….know her??) (she used to do “shirts” as in the chicest shirts on earth!! Vero Beach? I think so!! They are called “Thorne” those who have some……do not ever toss them…….they will sell for hundreds on eBay!!!! they are beautifully -made and RARE!!!)

    My Darling Penelope Bianchi,

    How marvelous that you were able to meet Mario N and see some of his brilliance first hand!

    Hobe sounds is just so sublime – the luxury of quiet on so many levels and so many wonderful homes.

    I had so much fun working in Vero Beach – there are some wonderful enclaves – like John’s Island. Wish I had met your friend- Aubrey. When we had the opening party for Marsh Island – it was ALL the rage and everyone was talking about the Club House – I was interviewed by John’s Island to decorate the beach clube house which was a divine Palm Beach/Bermuda style building – that is what I thought the project was – but alas – there plan was to knock down this and build some hideous structure – I guess I could not hide my horror and alas – I was not hired.

    Will have to research these shirts!

    Much Love and All Best

    JA
