Beginning with humble farmland, the Segerstrom family converted their parcels into real estate holdings in Orange County during the 1950s, eventually unveiling South Coast Plaza in 1967 where lima beans once grew. Fifty years later, South Coast Plaza is known as a mecca for luxury and style. Not only is it the largest shopping destination on the West Coast where many top-performing international retailers flourish, but South Coast Plaza also is the most successful planned retail center in the United States, attracting more than 20 million people every year who collectively spend close to $2 billion. Early on, the Segerstroms envisioned developing more than just a place to shop. The family and South Coast Plaza were pivotal in creating a cosmopolitan center for culture and arts for the county, inviting artists and architects such as Isamu Noguchi, Richard Serra, Victor Gruen and Cesar Pelli to give life to that vision. The result is a campus that includes South Coast Repertory, the future location of the Orange County Museum of Art, and Segerstrom Center for the Arts, home to the Pacific Symphony, American Ballet Theatre, Philharmonic Society of Orange County and Pacific Chorale. South Coast Plaza is a retrospective book that celebrates the center’s 50 years and traces the heritage and transformation of this incredible landmark into an unparalleled commercial and cultural icon. *SEP**SEP* Kedric Francis is the editorial director for custom content at the Southern California News Group.

Château Monestier La Tour

$95

At Assouline

For more than twenty-five years, the Scheufele family searched for an interesting château in France to live out their passion for wine. Château Monestier La Tour was like a coup de foudre, and the charm of the place immediately overwhelmed them. The château dates back to a thirteenth-century monastery and stands proudly on a small hill overlooking Monestier, a historic village just next to Bergerac. Nestled in the Périgord region of France—a paradise for gourmands, wine lovers, and history buffs—Château Monestier La Tour’s heritage is as rich and elegant as the wines it produces. This exceptional volume traverses the château’s legacy of viticulture, first officially recorded in 1792; after being passed down through noble French families, it was picked up by proprietors from New Zealand and the Netherlands before being acquired in 2012 by the Scheufele family, who have restored the château to its cozy grandeur. Written by Swiss wine expert Chandra Kurt, the five chapters are “The Périgord, a Land of Plenty,” “Gastronomy, from Truffles to Foie Gras,” “The History of Wine in Bergerac,” “Château Monestier La Tour” and “The Biodynamic Universe.” For Timeless Périgord the château opens its doors and Italian photographer Jacopo Salvi captures its beauty through all four seasons—including wine production, truffle hunting, and working in the vineyards, the biodynamic gardens and the kitchen. In addition, this Classics Collection volume is punctuated with over two dozen delectable recipes made with regional ingredients, from starters such as Eggs in Red Wine Sauce and Truffled Foie Gras Terrine, to Pot-au-Feu and Rotisserie Chicken with Sautéed Vegetables, to Crème Brûlée and Pear Tart Bourdaloue. “We love the tranquility in this place, and when we are here time shows a different dimension. Everything takes a little longer and everything takes the time needed to achieve the qualitative perfection that we strive for,” explains K. BUY FROM ASSOULINE

South Pole: The British Antarctic Expedition 1910

At Assouline

Although it’s a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate display of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements— traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory. Assouline is pleased to announce South Pole, providing a rare opportunity to feel an intimate connection to a heroic age of exploration. Arriving at the South Pole on January 17, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag. Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat only to die just eleven miles from the next depot. Featuring a collection of stunning black and white photography alongside entries from Scott’s harrowing diary, this tome starkly presents this well documented tragically untold journey in three unique formats: a trade edition in hardcover; an oversized special edition hardcover with jacket; and, most exclusively, an artist's limited luxury hand bound edition in extra-large format, complete with waterproof pages - the first luxury art book of its kind. The book's proceeds are graciously donated to the Antarctic Heritage Trust who preserve expeditions and the thousands of associated artifacts survive for the benefit of future generations; and inspire people through the values associated with adventure, discovery and leadership. Beyond the incredible feats of endurance, hardship, and the extraordinary scientific achievements from Scott’s last attempt, the world was captivated by Captain Scott’s prowess as a diarist and the outstanding photographic skill of team member Herbert Ponting. The written and photographic legacy enabled people to connect with this journey frozen in time as they have never before. *SEP**SEP* Christine Dell’Amore, environment writer-editor for National Geographic News,.

Whether served neat, on the rocks, or stirred into a cocktail, whiskey is often praised as the finest spirit in the world. On paper it might sound like a simple concoction—water and grain, fermented by yeast, then aged in a wood cask—but whiskey is about so much more than its physical ingredients. During the middle ages, Europeans called it aqua vitae, or “water of life,” a name that speaks to the cultural, social, and historical significance that this spirit holds. In The Impossible Collection of Whiskey, bestselling spirits writer Clay Risen unpacks the history of this storied drink, inviting the reader to tour some of the world’s most famed distilleries and their finest bottles. From the best Scotch of the Scottish Highlands to Kentucky’s finest Bourbon, Risen’s selection of 100 unparalleled whiskeys come from age-old makers as well as trailblazers of the craft distilling movement that has swept across the globe. Here are whiskeys selected not only for their exquisite flavor but also for rarity, age, flavor, and innovation. Bottles from countries with nascent whiskey markets, such as India and the Czech Republic, sit beside old American classics like Pappy Van Winkle and some of the rarest, most coveted bottles on the market. Risen marvels at bottles like Ireland’s Midleton Very Rare 45 Year Old, the oldest, most expensive Irish whiskey in the world. Together, these 100 bottles comprise a collection of whiskeys so exclusive that no one could ever assemble them all under one roof. A must-have for the library of any true whiskey connoisseur, The Impossible Collection of Whiskey is a carefully crafted homage to a liquor long revered as the “water of life.” Presented in a wrought-iron trimmed wood box modeled after an authentic whiskey barrel, this addition to Assouline’s bestselling Impossible Collection may very well be its most outstanding volume published to date.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin has been pushing boundaries for the past 250 years. From inventing rosé champagne in 1775 to collaborating with innovators such as Andrée Putman and the Campana Brothers, with each passing century the legendary label goes above and beyond to challenge itself with new initiatives to energize and excite its enthusiasts. When Madame Clicquot, who had become the veuve (widow) Clicquot Ponsardin, inherited the house in 1805, she followed the motto “Only one quality, the finest” and created the first vintage and the riddling rack, two major innovations for champagne production. Centuries later, the brand behind the characteristic yellow label continues to make history, going beyond champagne to represent a complete lifestyle. In 2010, Veuve Clicquot’s home base in Reims reopened after an extensive four-year renovation by interior designer Bruno Moinard. Contemporary works by Yayoi Kusama, Karen Knorr, and Pablo Reinoso now adorn the eighteenth-century wood paneling at the Hôtel du Marc—a perfect combination of design, art, and gastronomy that acts as a center for sharing and spreading the wealth of a magnificent wine. Veuve Clicquot is the drink of choice in spring at Goodwood Circuit in the United Kingdom, in summer on the polo lawns of New York, and in winter on Carnival chariots in Rio. In 2013, Veuve Clicquot partnered with Michelin-starred chef Joël Robuchon, securing its wines a spot as the guest of honor in each of his twenty-three restaurants. The following year, a collaboration with Ferrari brought the limited-edition Veuve Clicquot Maranello collection. The house has also been active in the sustainability movement, reducing emissions at the Hôtel du Marc, as well as introducing “Naturally Clicquot” eco-friendly packaging, made from the pulp of grapes harvested from the most prestigious hills of the Champagne region—a global first.

Damien Dufresne comes from the fashion world, from the advertising industry, from art direction and, more precisely, from the make-up world, and, of course, his work as a photographer has been influenced by all these experiences. Speaking about his work, Damien Dufresne says that "photography came to [him] without really deciding, as the rest of [his] life actually: things have happened nearly naturally. When I was a make-up artist, I was saying the same thing: make-up came to me and, paradoxically, I knew, deep inside, that it was what I always wanted to do. People are telling me that I use make-up as a painter and I take it as a compliment. But this isn’t true: the painter starts from a white canvas. I start my work with a person, with someone who lives, who breathes, who inspires. The choice of the model is paramount: he wears the make-up and he brings life to it. To transform, with make-up, a model into a character without betraying his personality, or to use his personality to create a character, even to change the way he looks at himself in the mirror. Then, comes the time when he appears on the set. I look in the camera and this is the birth of what I had assumed. Then, begins an intimate moment with the model, a seduction phase between him and the camera, a moment during which he and I have no other choice than to trust each other, a moment during which he surprises me and I capture the moment; and magic can start.” Damien Dufresne has been a make-up artist for the past thirty years..

The history of the Cellier aux Moines winery weaves a rich and colorful tapestry, originating with the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of La Ferté, who settled in 1113 on a rocky hill overlooking the city of Givry, an important viticultural center. Over the centuries the monks survived wars and plagues, acquiring and developing some of the most renowned vineyards in the region, and producing wines that graced the tables of royalty and the popes. Leaving a career dedicated to the management of luxury brands such as Barton & Guestier, Veuve Clicquot, and LVMH, Philippe Pascal, along with his wife Catherine, turned to winemaking. They bought the Cellier aux Moines property in 2004, revived its vineyards and buildings, and launched their first vintage in 2006, returning to the ancient traditions of winemaking including harvesting and culling the grapes by hand. The domaine’s wines are critically acclaimed, restoring the Cellier aux Moines to its former glory. *SEP**SEP* Gilles Platret is an historian of Burgundy.

The atmosphere evokes the “joy of sharing, and the joy of delivering a magnificent dining experience in a setting of wonder and originality; sharing with family, friends and guests; sharing good conversation that is quite often animated; and sharing beautiful flowers, especially from Valentino’s own gardens,” he continues in his introduction.

In Japan, cooking often bears aesthetic value, and the making of sushi is exalted as one of the finest culinary crafts.

Fawaz Gruosi, the inspired visionary behind Swiss jeweler de Grisogono, instinctively understands his craft. His dynamic creativity and nonconformist approach have been rejuvenating the conventions of jewelry since the brand was established in 1993 with a boutique on Geneva’s rue du Rhône, where he eschewed the minimalism characteristic of the decade in favor of rich, sensual, ornate pieces. De Grisogono’s first creation was a bespoke pair of pearl and diamond earrings for the Begum Salima Aga Khan, who epitomized the luxury and exclusivity that would come to define the jeweler. Since then, influential women such as Sophia Loren, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, and Sharon Stone have donned Gruosi’s glittering designs, which explore black and white diamonds, uniquely colored stones, and innovative yet classic form. But de Grisogono is about so much more: its opulent mix of Florentine and Byzantine influences, its striking gem combinations, and Gruosi’s unsurpassed handcraftsmanship make it singular in the jewelry world, as the arresting images in this luxury volume attest. *SEP**SEP* Jewelry historian Vivienne Becker is an award-winning journalist and author of many books on the history of jewelry design.

Doing a deep-dive into the stories of fifteen couples who motivate one another, work together, and change lives as a team, Nazarian explores the various forms a couple can take, and how differently they can operate, from living on separate continents to being artistic collaborators. Ranging from the iconic Parisian couple that is Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, to the mysterious Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe, Creative Couples is an insightful journey into the most intimate moments in the relationships of legendary painters, filmmakers, philosophers, and even the Queen. Each text takes into account the history of both halves of the pair, how they impact each other’s work, and what makes them stronger together. As the book traverses historical milestones and cultural change, be it in France, Chile, or Japan, it consistently returns to the importance of strong duos and how two people and their individual talents merging can be incredibly powerful. Nazarian tells fifteen timeless tales with impeccable attention to detail, and manages to weave singular lifestyles, from that of Lou Reed to Prince Philip’s, with the thread of the inimitable bond between two human beings.
