    High fashion has always been a feast for the eyes. Now it’s tickling the taste buds, as the world’s top luxury brands venture into food. Some of today’s finest chefs are collaborating with designers and fashion houses to open restaurants and launch gastronomy ventures, such as Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura on Rodeo Drive.On this episode of Rodeo Drive-The Podcast, host Bronwyn Cosgrave steps into Gucci’s food and fashion universe, and meets Head Chef Mattia Agazzi. He explains how Massimo Bottura fuses a love of art and cooking with local ingredients at his bistro-style Gucci Osterias in Florence and now Beverly Hills. Cosgrave experiences the glamorous interior -- with cherry red, velvet banquettes and gleaming, stainless steel kitchen --and artful, playful dishes, like “Uni Carbonara,” a whirl of bright green spaghetti with a twist of orange uni atop and “Oops I Broke the Meringue,” a cracked disc of thin meringue with a raspberry colored leaves and flowers echoing the Richard Ginori dinnerware.  Cosgrave also meets a fashion designer who has turned his creative skills to food: Humberto Leon, a former creative director of the iconic Paris label Kenzo. Now Leon has gone back to his roots and, with his mother, sister, and brother-in-law, they have created Chifa, a Peruvian-Chinese restaurant with a sumptuous interior designed to invoke a sense of celebration in vivid green and gold, with heart motifs and wallpaper designed by Leon with Calico Wallpaper.Listen to the conversation to hear how couture and cuisine have come together to provide a new and accessible entrée to leading luxury brands.Podcast webpage: rodeodrive-bh.com/[email protected] Winter, Executive Producer, Lyn Winter, Inc., 213 446 0788, [email protected] See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Time Moves On: The Modern Watch Collector

    24:19

    Highly-crafted timepieces are so desirable that all the top brands have a presence on Rodeo Drive today. On this episode of Rodeo Drive-The Podcast, host Bronwyn Cosgrave meets the watch dealers and aficionados who have made the luxury thoroughfare a destination for haute horology: Nicola Cagliata, regional manager for Jaeger LeCoultre and the former president of the Rodeo Drive Committee; Tom Blumenthal CEO of GEARYS Beverly Hills, which owns boutiques on Rodeo Drive for Rolex and Patek Philippe, and Greg Simonian, president of Westime luxury watch store on Two Rodeo Drive, who is opening a new space devoted to the competitive resale market.  Cosgrave also speaks to a new group of passionate women collectors and commentators. Ming Liu, who writes about watches for publications including British Vogue, the Financial Times and the New York Times says, “The days of the man in your life buying the watch for you, those days are over. Women want watches that express who they are.” Iris Ko, an anesthesiologist in Los Angeles who now owns 57 collectibles, including a rare Vacheron Constantin that she purchased on a speedy time out during an operation, explains her obsession for the artistry, passion, creativity, and history of luxury watches.Highly crafted watches can be as sought after as fine paintings and cost as much as a house or a vintage car. Cosgrave delves into why, in an age of technology and smart watches, traditional timepieces continue to hold such an allure.

    Halston, House of Gucci, and Hollywood

    33:07

    Halston and Gucci dressed the stars of Hollywood and helped put Rodeo Drive on the map. The behind-the-scenes drama at these legendary fashion houses earned them the Hollywood treatment.Halston is the five-time Emmy-nominated Netflix series starring actor Ewan McGregor, directed by Daniel Minahan and produced by Ryan Murphy.House of Gucci is the big-screen movie, opening this fall, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, directed by Ridley Scott.On this episode of Rodeo Drive-The Podcast, host Bronwyn Cosgrave talks to the writers of the books that inspired these narratives.Steven Gaines, author of Simply Halston shares his story about Roy Halston Frowick, the small town kid from Iowa who transformed American women's fashion, reigned over 1970s New York, and then lost everything, even his name, to a corporate takeover, sex, drugs and premature death.“No other designer up until that point had become such a giant superstar, as Halston was, and part of that was Liza (Minelli), Studio 54, that whole thing that was going on,” says Gaines, who also recalls his own experiences with the wild discotheque. Of course, he adds, “Halston was a genius in terms of design.”Sara Gay Forden, longtime fashion industry reporter, watched the larger-than-life trial of Patrizia Gucci for the hired killing of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, the last of the Gucci family to head the fashion house. She wrote the book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed. Forden takes listeners back to the founding of Gucci in Florence a century ago as a leather goods company, and through its strife and glamour-filled transformation into the global megabrand it is today.“This was a saga,” says Forden, “a narrative that combined all the elements that you could imagine: the family, the fashion, the business, the jealousy, the fights.” Listeners will also find out how Rodeo Drive lured these brands as they sought to build relationships with the entertainment world and adorn the stars of Hollywood.Podcast webpage: rodeodrive-bh.com/[email protected] Winter, Executive Producer, Lyn Winter, Inc., 213 446 0788, [email protected] See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
