Leather for Any Weather

Jan 1, 2017
January 2017

THIS SEASON, LET’S REFRESH your outlook on leather. Embossed, tanned, monogrammed, burned — take your pick. Leather is never a cliché. Winter weather will surely present brisk breezes. Layering, stacking and mixing fabrics is your first defense, but no silhouette is complete without an accent of leather. Take a look beyond the classic bomber and motorcycle cuts. Be enlightened and travel with confidence with the subtle elements and spoils of leather.

Blissfully Adrift

FOR THOSE OF US PASSIONATE about wellness pursuits and who feel most at peace close to the sea, there’s nothing quite like the synergy offered by a floating spa integrated into the setting of a luxurious cruise ship. I’m sailing through the Mediterranean from Rome to Barcelona, discovering along the way that the Crystal Life Spa & Beauty Salon on board the Crystal Serenity provides not only the element of high-end indulgence but also the cruise line’s signature commitment to attention and service.

Tropical Hot Spot

CONSIDERING THAT JUST A LITTLE more than a century ago — 1910, to be exact — Miami’s population was only about 5,400 people, it’s easy to see why this South Florida hot spot has long been considered a boomtown. And the evolution continues to impress as the city gears up to welcome an array of new services, amenities and experiences.

Thessaloniki: Culture, Good Food and Shopping

Thessaloniki is the second-largest city of Greece and the most important center of the area. Built near the sea, elegant and refined, the Greek “Lady of the North” is a modern, vivacious city that welcomes visitors eager to learn about its history and culture, and at the same time have fun, relax, go shopping or simply explore the cityscape by the sea.
