INSIDE PIERRE AND HARRY

photo 1

I stopped by PIERRE&HARRY the other day to see what’s new, ask a few burning questions I had and take a few photos of their posh new space. Really you have to see it for yourself.  But I’ll share what I found out.

TSG: I have a few of my mom’s and grandmother’s pearl necklaces that are beautiful but just a bit dated.  Can you take my beloved necklaces and make them into something I’ll actually wear?

P&H: We love designing our own pieces. Even more so, we are always honored to redesign our clients heirloom pieces upon request. Pierre&Harry is built on honoring our family traditions (our Naples family and beyond). This is why we take great personal care and pride in providing this unique service to our family of clients both local and transient.

TSG: With this beautiful new store space, why do you still do the Third Street South and Marco Island Farmers Markets?

P&H: The Farmers Markets allow us a very unique introduction and connection to our clients. Actually, the more frequent question we’re asked is why in the world we would be enduring the heat of Summer off-season months at the Markets. The answer is just as clear. The Farmers Markets are such a special venue to us- especially during the Summer months. We love spending time getting to know our clients individually. Summertime allows that time and luxury 10-fold!

TSG: What inspires you?

P&H: Put simply, family, friends, and experiences. As outlined in the story of our company found on our website, our lives are ever enriched by: our Southern roots, extensive travels and living experiences abroad, as well as our close, personal relationships with the growers/suppliers of pearls and gems in the Far East. In addition, we’re inspired by our clients and the beautiful life stories they share with us.

Enter Fall

GARDNER COLBY GALLERY has a wide-ranging and eclectic collection of art that I love and find inspirational (and also I want to buy) every time I walk in the door.  Here are a few paintings that make me think of Fall.

SCOUTED: Riding Boot

I just started horseback riding and even though I can barely walk this week, I’m inspired by the new Dolce & Gabbana flat riding boot at MARISSA COLLECTIONS.

Happy trails.

Wine Storage

wine glass

WILLIAM C. HUFF COMPANIES is is into wine.  That is, wine storage.  They hosted Claude Robbins, founder of the International Wine Guild who presented a series of wine pairings and trained the Huff staff in proper wine handling and storage.

Some interesting facts: more than 50% of all wines over 15 years old are probably bad and American wines have a shelf-life of less than 10 years.

“The most destructive thing to wine, over time, is vibration. Truck traffic or even road vibration from other vehicles near your home can turn wine bad in a matter of months.” — Jim Henderson, President of William C. Huff Companies

The company is installing shock proof flooring in their new wine storage area inside of their warehouse to prevent vibrations and ensure best practices are utilized.

Stay tuned … they are co-sponsoring several two-day educational seminars this coming Fall.  Call them for details.
