HUNT SLONEM W e've just wound down the Houston PaperCity Design Awards, with a record 297 beautiful entries. Our Houston partner, The Houston Design Center, created a beautiful evening to honor the winning designers and architects. See the listing of winners on page 12 and online at Three weeks later, on Sunday, May 1, we opened the entry site for the Dallas PaperCity Design Awards with our wonderful Dallas partner, Dunhill Partners and Dallas Design District. There could not be two more advantageous partners. Post-Awards, our thoughts have turned to fall, just as spring rounds the corner to summer. Not by desire, but by necessity. We're preparing for the launch of our first bound issue for September. This may seem an easy task, but in reality the new format needs twice the editorial, as it will have roughly double the number of pages. We've selected new paper stock and a beautiful size — 9 by 13 inches. This is also the perfect opportunity to think about our direction in both design of the magazine and editorial content. Our pillars of content consist of fashion, design + art, people, food + spirit and social. Each issue should be a mix — of earnest 30-year-olds and gregarious nonagenarians; male, female or a hybrid; those who have arrived at their ideal economic level and those who are still adding to the coffers; a phalanx of philanthropists and charity chairmen; those who love to entertain, proffering lovely conversational skills, as well as the assiduous listener. That, my friends, is the recipe for an interesting magazine — and, not by chance, for the perfect cocktail party Holly Moore Editor in Chief in this ISSUE M AY 2 0 1 6 | S T Y L E | F A S H I O N | S O C I A L 4 , 6 , 8 P O P.

The dual, and often dueling, fair times make it difficult for the city to gain traction to promote Houston as a cultural destination. Fortunately that's not the case this year, as the Texas Contemporary Art Fair and the (rebranded and under new ownership) Houston Art Fair are now aligned as to dates. Calendar Thursday, September 29, for opening nights, with the fairs both running Friday through Sunday, September 30 through October 2. With venues minutes away — George R. Brown Convention Center for the Texas Contemporary and a fresh site for Houston Art Fair at Silver Street Studios Event Space — collectors, curators and supporters can now navigate both, making for an epic weekend of modern and contemporary action in our fair town, which is now officially the country's third largest art market.

Anspon FAIR FEVER N o budding empire is complete without a precocious heir and a thirst for expansion. So when 33-year-old Charlie Goyer joined the beloved Dallas-based sporting and lifestyle store Saint Bernard, which his parents, Anne and Wes Goyer opened in 1978, he planned to take the company to new heights, growing the corporate culture and expanding locations. Saint Bernard is now tackling a new market: Houston's River Oaks District, the luxury shopping complex that houses Dior, Hermès and Tom Ford. Saint Bernard's 14,000 square feet of prime real estate include a full-service ski shop open during ski season (a natural, given Charlie's post-grad stint in Aspen) that offers tune-ups, waxing, adding and adjusting bindings — everything you would have done in a ski resort, with the goal of getting you on the slopes faster. There's a mind-boggling list of top-of-the-line gear for skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking, beaching and lounging, including Patagonia, North Face, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, Southern Tide, Hunter, Peter Millar, Canada Goose, Spyder, Obermeyer, Nills, Bogner and Rodd & Gunn. Top ski-makers include Rossignol, Volkl, Blizzard, Salomon, Kastle, K2 Corporation and Armada, and snowboards are from Burton, Capita and Never Summer. Après ski shopping, recover in the lounge with draft beer and coffee.

COURTESY ART LEAGUE HOUSTON Holly Moore B olke opened Forty Five Ten (at 4510 McKinney, thus the name) in Dallas in 2000, and it was soon worshipped by Dallas' philanthropic, art-collecting, globe-hopping set. Unlike any retail establishment seen before, it was more a cozy luxurious stage set than a delineated, departmentalized store. "Forty Five Ten is not about a singular experience — coming in and buying something," Bolke says. "It involves taste and smell and vision and feel. The design of the store can change and will change, because I might be inspired by something new in four months. Creation is a moving process, and it won't stop when we open the door." All this on the eve of the opening of Bolke's new Downtown Dallas, 37,000-square-foot flagship Forty Five Ten, at the end of October, with jet-loads of designers and fashion faces flying in for the fête. Once again, it's a retail game-changer.

And for once, the rumor mill is right: Beloved Dallas retail mecca Forty Five Ten opens September in Houston's new River Oaks District. Securing a prime corner space across from Tom Ford and next to Toulouse, Forty Five Ten owner Brian Bolke unfurls his retail might with the appointments of two fashion luminaries for the Dallas and Houston stores: women's fashion director Taylor Tomasi Hill, who will edit womenswear and accessories (heavy on new and emerging designers), and menswear merchant/Instagram sensation Nick Wooster, focusing on an exclusive men's assortment that includes his Nick Wooster x Lardini collaboration. A supremely chic home objects and gift department is being developed by home creative director Rob Dailey. New store concepts include Rare Beauty, an exclusive offering of fragrance, color and treatment; an Assouline book department; and, at the entrance, Copper Bar, serving Champagnes and coffee. "We want a store that will add to the walkability of River Oaks District," Bolke says. "Some of our best and favorite clients of the last 16 years are from Houston. We have been literally looking for the last decade for a Houston location, but the location and timing didn't feel right until now." Architect David Droese of Droese Raney Architecture will design the interiors with Bolke. TO OPEN IN HOUSTON B A C K S T O R Y DALLAS' FORTY FIVE TEN Vetements No. 21 stiletto Vineyard Vines
