Readers are updated on the most cutting edge luxury lifestyle enhancements through expert descriptions.

The French jeweler is making a play for the return of the handwritten note with covetable notes that carry their own fonts, color motifs and designs on premium paper. The “Collect” section tackles sought-after young photographers who are leveraging unique formats. Unusual mediums blend darkroom and digital printmaking with sculpture, painting and installation. Art advisers point to a few artists on the rise in this category. And lastly, “Graze” follows the path of the Chefs Club which started in Aspen and is headed to the famed Puck Building in Soho, NYC.
World renowned photographer, Iran Issa-Khan, launched her new book at an intimate book signing party at the One Thousand Museum Sales Gallery by Zaha Hadid’sin downtown Miami.

The stunning collection of work captures the purity of nature by virtue of contemporary, feminine lines, which are both features that Issa-Khan and Hadid are known for. Guests included Iran Issa-Khan’s closest friends, which include Miami’s VIPs and tastemakers, that enjoyed a chic display of hors d’oeuvres as the Perrier Jouet flowed through the night.

As part of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s international outreach and marketing, several top agents from the firm’s South Florida offices will visit Hong Kong this October to attend the Sotheby’s Art Auctions. During the trip they will showcase Miami and Fort Lauderdale’s luxury real estate opportunities to affluent Chinese buyers and collectors as well as exclusive developments such as ONE Thousand Museum, The Ritz-Carlton Residences and Kai Bay Harbour.
David Lane, a ONE Sotheby’s agent that is heading to Hong Kong, says, “Miami is competing against every other major city in the world to attract Chinese buyers and investors. New projects backed by Asian developers such as Brickell City Center and Genting Resorts World are giving them the confidence to choose our city over places like New York, London and even Australia.” As Miami continues to grow and invigorate areas such as the Design District, Museum Park, Wynwood and Sunny Isles, it will continue to attract international investors that are looking to be part of the action.
During their stay in Hong Kong our agents will be visiting Sotheby’s Hong Kong to attend various art auctions and events. The auctions that will be taking place include Contemporary Asian Art, 20th Century Chinese Art, Fine Chinese Paintings and Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite. One of the most anticipated auctions taking place is “NIGO Only Lives Twice”, a lot of 250 items from creative entrepreneur NIGO’s personal collection, that will include luxury goods, design furniture, watches, jewelry and much more.

In anticipation of the November release of our Fall edition, we wanted to feature our current publication to give our audiences a taste of what sorts of articles they’ll find. We’ll start with our cover story on the modern marvel and ONE SIR exclusive development, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach. Within the pages of our Spring 2014 edition, Maxine Milo educated readers on the international architect Piero Lissoni and his current Miami project. Lissoni’s goal was to contribute a modern edge to the iconic brand and Milo explains how he executed that goal.
Hailing from Milan, Lissoni was hired by developer Lionheart Capital to bring the brand’s signature level of luxury to private residences and to strike the balance between honoring the legacy of the brand while fitting into the structure of Miami’s modern skyline. Lissoni aptly explained his inspiration in this statement, “I work in 2014, and I like to be a modernist….But in the same moment, I never forget tradition.” When his first US project is completed in winter 2016, the self-contained community will occupy seven acres in a quiet corner of Miami Beach near Lincoln Road on the only lakefront area in Miami. The LEED-certified property will consist of 111 two-to-four bedroom multimillion dollar units and 15 villas with spectacular waterfront views. The prime location is a favorite project feature for Lissoni, “This is a very special place. Its in a city but it can feel like a village. And having the lake, ocean and waterway is an unusual combination. I love it.”
Starchitect Zaha Hadid hosted an intimate celebration for her longtime business partner Patrik Schumacher at the One Thousand Museum Sales Gallery. Guests included Lenny Kravitz, Craig Robins, Barbara Becker, Naeem Khan and other movers and shakers. The party was a preview of the festivities to come at the anticipated groundbreaking during Art Basel Miami Beach. www.1000museum.com
