Richard Caring (the Ivy, Annabel’s) of London is the latest to join Miami’s burgeoning restaurant scene, opening a branch of his big-box fusion bistro Sexy Fish just in time for the holidays. The restaurant’s maximalist elements include a lighted floor, abundance of coral leather and onyx, and a whimsical outside garden, which was designed in partnership with Swedish architect Martin Brudnizki. Inside, guests will encounter 10 Damien Hirst artworks, a Frank Gehry-designed installation of 26 dazzling fish dangling from the ceiling, and DJs spinning under a big octopus. There’s a private dining area with seats for 30 people and a wall-length fish tank, so the magnates could be tougher to find. “I think Miami will cool down a little bit in the future,” Caring predicts, “but I think we’ll be the last guy standing.” sexyfishmiami.com.
A year after opening his first store in Paris, the French watercolor artist-illustrator Marin Montagut has memorialized the secret ateliers, emporiums, and centres of fading crafts that have long inspired his work in a new book. “Timeless Paris,” a visual homage to the city’s artisanal legacy and the city’s few surviving redoubts of old-world workmanship, was launched this autumn by Flammarion. Montagut celebrates what he calls the “spirit” of Paris via historical drawings, collages, and pictures, ranging from the antique bookshop Jousseaume, nestled away in the glass-covered Galerie Vivienne, to the enormous woodworking of Féau & Cie, to La Maison du Pastel’s hand-blended colors. “These spaces are what’s left to oppose the contemporary city’s sameness,” Montagut argues. “I believe they are worthy of celebration.” Rizzoliusa.com, $40.
A Tribute to a Master of Brazilian Modernism
The acclaimed video artist Isaac Julien “became a type of Lina Bo Bardi groupie” after seeing the work of modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi on travels to Brazil, he says of the designer of landmark structures like the So Paulo Museum of Art, a brutalist masterpiece from 1968. His admiration for Bo Bardi, who was born in Italy but spent the majority of her career working in Brazil until her death in 1992, has culminated in a fascinating exhibition at Charlotte’s Bechtler Museum of Modern Art that examines her legacy through a series of video installations that amount to a poetic meditation on her life and work. The elder Bo Bardi is played by the famed Brazilian actress Fernanda Montenegro, while the younger version is played by her real-life daughter Fernanda Torres, an artistic choice that, like Bo Bardi’s predictive work, appears to bring past, present, and future in conversation. The exhibition “Isaac Julien: Lina Bo Bardi — A Marvelous Entanglement” will be on display until February 27.
Smells of the Indian Subcontinent
The beauty business has always seen India as an exotic other and a source of raw materials, but a new generation of Indian entrepreneurs is changing that perception with products that reflect their creators’ own experiences at home. The alpha hydroxy acid combination of Ranavat’s Resurfacing Saffron Masque, which also contains soothing saffron, recalls creator Michelle Ranavat, a first-generation South Asian American, of “childhood vacations to India when we would immediately smell saffron as we stepped into a temple.” With notes of coffee, sandalwood, and davana, a fruity-smelling plant unique to India, Ben Gorham, who grew up visiting his grandmother in Mumbai, reflects the city’s spicy contrasts in his newest fragrance, Mumbai Noise. Anita Lal, the founder of luxury retailer Good Earth, launched Lilanur this year, a new fragrance line that blends Indian and French perfume traditions with scents like Davana Cèdre, which was created by master perfumer Honorine Blanc and combines davana and cedar with pink pepper, angelique, cassis, and musk. Pritika Swarup grew up crafting masks inspired by Ayurvedic medicine with her mother before launching her cosmetics company, Prakti. Her nutritious MahaMask hydrates dry skin with rich turmeric butter and amla oil, sourced from the Indian gooseberry tree.
Rowena Morgan-Cox would admire the shop’s sculptural mid-century Italian sconces and pendants while working at the London design boutique 8 Holland Street, which she helped open in 2018. But, apart from old discoveries, she found it difficult to locate lights that were practical, distinctive, and economical when it came time to adorn her house. Palefire is the result of this insight, as well as a desire to build something with her own hands after working at London’s Fine Art Society. The studio’s first collection includes eight lamp styles, including a 1950s-inspired diabolo-shaped uplighter and an Art Nouveau-inspired table light with a dramatic oversize shade, all of which can be custom-made in a variety of solid colors and patterns inspired by the work of female designers like Sonia Delaunay and Marion Dorn. The pieces are created from recycled paper pulp and have the pleasingly flawed feel of porcelain. Palefirestudio.com, starting at $245.
