A labor of love. That is how I would describe my home renovation, with never a dull moment working through all the architectural nuances and design subtleties that finely characterize our mid-century modern. The rain has certainly slowed down the progress, but I do think that in early fall, my husband, Ben, and I will finally dwell within its curated walls. Needless to say, home design and architecture have been on my mind in a big way this year, and with the additional launch of our Dallas Design Awards (online entry period closes Saturday, August 15), it's clearly all I can think about. Over the last month, I've had the pleasure of meeting two maestros of the interior and architectural world. Furniture designer Vladimir Kagan's style is the epitome of mid-century modern and contemporary design. David and Ann Sutherland hosted a book signing for Mr. Kagan at their showroom in the Design Center; quite a fanatical and stylish crowd ventured out in the rain to meet the living legend. Italians are synonymously known for their exquisite design and style aesthetics; architect and designer Mario Bellini equates perfection in this arena. During his recent visit, Scott + Cooner owners Lloyd Scott and Josy Collins hosted Mr. Bellini in partnership with Cassina, where he shared his design perspective on classic Cassina styles and his architectural success. Both legends have left me inspired. Now I just need to get working on my interior project! Read our home section for more inspirations. Upon closing this issue, I will be en route to the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia to spend a weekend at the historic The Greenbrier, aka "America's Resort," which was famously designed by Dorothy Draper and has recently received a $250 million-plus restoration. But, wherever your travels and vacations take you, I wish you a happy summer escape. xo Max Trowbridge Dallas Editor in Chief 8 Party: Dallas Museum of Art's Art Ball Parties: Charlotte Moss at Neiman Marcus; Jan Showers fêtes India Hicks 9, 10 7 Party: VIP openings for Nate Lowman and David Salle at Dallas Contemporary in this ISSUE JULY 2015 | S T Y L E | F A S H I O N | S O C I A L 4 , 6 P O P. C U LT U R E . G O S S I P. JANE ROZELLE N ever a dull moment. Summer weddings, vacations, escapades … While work schedules may have subsided a bit, summertime social schedules have surely picked up. Here at Camp PC, we are busy plotting our visits to the numerous stores and restaurants that have recently opened in Dallas and the surrounding areas — Suitsupply, Bluemercury, Shinola and Uchi. Flip through our New Doors (pages 9 – 10) to read more on these spots. In this issue, PaperCity also celebrates all things home and art, as we do each year in eight of our 12 issues, including this month's home section. We are in increasingly good company — welcome to our newest partners, including Paddle8 (check out the website or download the app to browse and bid on artworks or for a consignment estimate of your own art and design works), IBB Design Fine Furnishings, Wisteria and Kimbell Art Museum. July is witness to the usual social ebb and flow, as we find refreshment in faraway places, only to come home to relish the longer days and casual gatherings that accompany this time of year. Hopefully, you find time to do just that. Wherever the summer takes you, we'd love to go with you.

Don't know fraternal twins Niki and Simon Haas? Then you're decidedly behind in the realm of cutting-edge design brushing up with important contemporary art. The L.A.-based 30-year-olds — one straight, one gay — grew up in Austin with an opera-singer mom, sculptor father and actor brother. Early on, they pursued separate creative paths: Simon studied painting at RISD, while Niki followed a musical career, touring with talents ranging from Vincent Gallo to Sean Lennon and Jim O'Rourke. In 2007, the two bros came together on the West Coast to play with the band RRIICCEE. Three years later, The Haas Brothers was formed in L.A., jump-started by a fortuitous collaboration with a pal on a Johnston Marklee project (the same architects who are designing the new Menil Drawing Institute). Just five years later, the wildly inventive brothers seem to be everywhere a smart, international design language is spoken: exhibiting at DesignMiami in both its iterations (Miami Beach during Art Basel fair week and its parent fair in Basel, Switzerland, with back-to- back appearances there in 2014 and again this June) and being represented by R & Company, New York, the discerning, influential gallery that showcases the most ground-breaking voices in contemporary global design from 1945 onward. (The Haases' exuberantly staged first U.S. solo last fall at R & Company, "Cool World," was critically acclaimed and documented by a 176- page monograph — their first book.) The pair has also infiltrated the often fickle world of fashion with high-profile collaborations for Versace (2013 capsule collection) and Louis Vuitton, where their furniture graces LV's Maison in Shanghai. Lady Gaga has come calling, tapping the brothers to design and fabricate Little Monsters masks for her 2012 Fame print campaign. Come this October, hear The Haas Brothers in a design dialogue at the Texas Contemporary Fair, one of their first Texas appearances. Discover the masterminds behind the often transgressive yet unforgettable home-furnishing creations rendered in everything from futuristic resins and polyurethane plastic to fur, brass, bronze and porcelain. Their anthropomorphic, animalistic chairs, sofas, lamps, vases and rugs go far, far beyond pushing the envelope, shoving the discussion of gender and sexuality into the middle of an exquisitely furnished room.

YOU HAVE CHIC MAIL Niki and Simon Haas in their 2014 exhibition, "Cool World," at R & Company, New York A QUALITY TIMEPIECE always feels good on your wrist. And this one will feel even better, because a portion of the price helps to improve the lives of children in crisis-stricken areas around the world. IWC Schaffhausen recently released the Ingenieur Automatic Edition Laureus Sport For Good Foundation watch, and, like all pieces from the Switzerland-based house, it's a beauty. The mechanical-movement timepiece — made in a limited edition of 1,500 — has a stainless-steel case, blue dial with rhodium-plated hands and an elegant folding-clasp bracelet. The engraving on the back of the case reflects the winning entry of IWC and Laureus' "Time to Celebrate" drawing competition, which was submitted by 13-year- old Nakayenga Zahara of Uganda. The Laureus Sport For Good Foundation uses sports-related initiatives to help underprivileged boys and girls overcome the effects of war, poverty and other crises, and has been sponsored by IWC for the past 10 years. $9,300 at Bachendorf's, Eiseman Jewels.
