ROBERT McCLAIN "Art Basel was one of many art high points in my four-week Europe sojourn (page 124), which included Paris, Rome, and London — all extraordinary cities in which to see great art, both historic and contemporary." Looking forward to: McClain Gallery's open- ing for a major survey of seven decades of mas- ter prints of Picasso. Robert McClain is founder, owner of McClain Gallery in Houston; gallery exhibitions have been featured in The New York Times, Art & Auction, Bloomberg, Art in America, and Artnews. ROB BRINKLEY "The third time had better be the charm for the Ritz Paris and me (page 66). I was due to celebrate my 30th birthday there but was thwarted by a pilots' strike. An- other big birthday just came up — and the Ritz caught fire the month before, delaying its reopening for months. So when I finally go, whenever the fates allow, I expect shooting stars, champagne sprays, and a Hallelujah chorus when I walk through that door." Looking forward to: A change of colors that will put Vermont to shame. We have earned it. Rob Brinkley is a writer, editor, creative direc- tor, and is a former PaperCity Dallas co-editor. His writing has appeared in Esquire, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Veranda, FD, FD House, D Home, and the magazines of the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Museum of Art, and Highland Park Village. CASEY DUNN " W h e n w e w a l k e d i n t o p h o t o - g r a p h M r . Chow (page 100), he sat us down at a 1 5 - f o o t dining table a n d a s k e d us what we wanted for breakfast. In what felt like a scene straight out of a movie set in the Hollywood Hills, he gave us the option of tea, coffee, or cocaine. Not sure if he was kidding, but we all laughed as he proceeded to grill each of us individually about our credentials. Luckily we passed the test, and he let us stay. After that, all the doors kind of opened. Chow was pretty much game for everything we wanted to try." Looking forward to: Traveling around the world in September. First for a project shooting in Seoul, then out west to meet my fiancée in Stockholm for work/play. Then to Dallas for my rep and dear friend Jenn Dunn's wedding. Casey Dunn is a photographer based in Austin; his work has appeared in Dwell, Architectural Record, New York Times Magazine, Architectural Digest, Texas Monthly, Western Art & Architecture, Details, This Old House, and Texas Architect. LAURANN CLARIDGE "I always, al- ways, always love the sense of dis- covery of trying a new restaurant. This fall, Hous- ton brings us the opening of lots of ambitious new restaurants (Le Colonial page 186, Taverna page 188, Rise No. 2 page 190), both home- grown and national imports, to round out the culinary landscape." Looking forward to: Getting — specifically, rescuing — a dog. The time is so right to bring a little pup (or even two) into my life. Best part: I can take them to work with me. Laurann Claridge is co-founder of Claridge + King clothing for women, inspired by menswear tailoring and fabrics; editor at large, PaperCity, and former PC features editor for 16 years. She is based in Houston, and her writing has appeared in Lucky, Food & Wine, and WWD. FILIPPO TATTONI-MARCOZZI "I have many titles: the one I was born with, the one I studied for, the one that defines my profession as an art advisor … But the one I like the most is the one PaperCity gave me: European editor at large! I love the excuse of jet-setting around Europe, reporting to all my friends in Texas from across the pond, telling all from the Venice Bien- nale; the latest shows, exhibitions, and parties in London-Paris-Milan; what to wear, what to drink, and what to look at, while mingling with the art and fashion crowd of the old continent ... and even how to prepare for an Italian country wedding, as I did with a new morn- ing suit for my broth- er's big day. I hope you all enjoy reading about my very own Grande Bellezza movie set! For the September issue, I am reporting from this season's most talked-about party (page 63), Edgardo Osorio's Florentine extravaganza of costumes, feathers … and surrealist lobsters!" Looking forward to: Rejoining the art fair circus again, which will move around the globe from Miami to New York, London to Hong Kong, Basel, Milan. Follow Filippo at @filippotm. Filippo Tattoni-Marcozzi, PaperCity European editor at large, travels the world following art, design and fashion, and is based in Washing- ton, D.C.

The suites were more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. We felt like royalty for a few days."
