Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

So many good mem­o­ries! One of my fond­est is din­ing with cash­mere baron Brunello Cucinelli at his home in Um­bria for the ar­ti­cle Por­trait of a Pal­adino (Septem­ber 2016).

Brunello’s tiny grand­daugh­ter, Vit­to­ria, played wait­ress while he re­galed us with whim­si­cal—some­times rib­ald—tales of his youth. He also schooled me in clas­si­cal phi­los­o­phy. I re­mem­ber leav­ing our din­ner en­am­oured of his in­de­fati­ga­ble pos­i­tiv­ity and warmth. Closer to home, let­ting loose with my fel­low edi­tors at the Tatler Ball is top of the list. The dresses. The mu­sic. The peo­ple. And those late-night snacks. Oh gosh, yes.
