12 letter editor HUNT SLONEM I thought September would never come. I also thought we would have dialed back the COVID-19 outbreak in Texas. We can only keep trying. As focused as we are on home and art this fall, our creative director has photographed a moving and timely fashion portfolio with Dior (beginning on page 50) and on the cover. Our model, Mimi Roche, cannot help but be compared to the striking '60s activist and Black Panther Angela Davis. The setting is Dallas McNamara's raw and beautiful Cherryhurst House art installation, with visiting guest artist Tod Bailey dialoguing with Dan Havel and Dean Ruck's site-specific artwork Ripple. Be sure to explore the glorious 12-page spread on the magnificent Dallas home that interior designer Alvise Orsini and his husband, Neiman Marcus Group CEO Geoffroy van Raemdonck, share with their twin boys. Written by their close friend Filippo Tattoni- Marcozzi, PaperCity's European editor at large, it offers a glimpse into a home that has become a haven during the COVID crisis. And in another inspiring home design spread, Jill Brown's rural retreat in Bellville is a knockout. Brown is soon to announce a new expanded concept for her beloved Houston store, Brown, whose name has changed to Brown House and Wares. Watch for details online and in the October issue of PaperCity. The much anticipated inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas moves forward as planned, with a multitude of glorious rooms designed by decorators from Houston, Dallas, Austin, and around the country; see page 18 for a list of designers participating and ticket details. This is a big moment for design in Texas. Opening nights are September 23 and 24, and the show house is open to the public though October 25. We hope the restlessness of our country comes to an end sooner rather than later. But we also hope that you discover that these challenging times present great opportunity — for those who have found their voice, have learned to stand up for what they believe in, educated themselves on opposing views, and practiced acceptance. May we all continue to stand up for our beliefs, support one another, help our incredible communities become even more welcoming places, and — perhaps most importantly — spread kindness to everyone we encounter. I shamelessly cribbed the above paragraph from Dallas PaperCity's Samantha Olguin. It's so well said. We look forward to seeing you around town this fall, and in the meantime, follow along on social media @papercityhouston and online at Texas Design Week Houston and Dallas has been postponed until 2021.
