100 BAL HARBOUR THE IMPOSSIBLE COLLECTION OF WINE Enrico Bernardo—who in 2004, at 27 years old, was the youngest to be named Best Sommelier of the World—brings together a collection of extraordinary wines that could only exist within the pages of a book. Enthusiasts will appreciate Bernardo's vast knowledge of international vintages, and novices will learn much from his attention to the different facets of taste that distinguish wines throughout time. (Assouline) EDDIE BORGO "I recently visited both Mapplethorpe retrospectives in Los Angeles—at the LACMA and the Getty. 'Robert Mapplethorpe: The Archive,' by Frances Terpak and Michelle Brunnick, surveys the artist's student work, jewelry, sculpture and commercial assignments— and sheds light on his motivations, connections, business acumen and talent as a curator and collector." From ballet's center stage to fashion's premier runways, these titles are page-turners. BY ALEXANDRA OSHINSKY Autumn Leaves MARIANO VIVANCO: PORTRAITS NUDES FLOWERS Photographer Mariano Vivanco has spent 10 years chasing beauty in natural forms. This new book brings together these works in a modern and symbiotic way, juxtaposing Technicolor flowers with portraits and nudes. (Artbook) Misty Copeland changed the landscape of professional classical ballet, and photographer Gregg Delman was there to capture her meteoric rise. In his new book, Delman documents Copeland's graceful athleticism over four years as she journeys towards becoming the first African-American principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. (Rizzoli) VENESSA ARIZAGA "We have a couple of house projects going on in Puerto Rico, so I'm reading 'Gardening in the Tropics' by R. E. Holttum and Ivan Enoch as research. I'm also in the middle of 'Detroit: An American Autopsy' by Charlie LeDuff." ALEXANDRE BIRMAN "I'm currently reading 'The New Rules of Retail' by Robin Lewis and Michael Dart because along with the history of retail development, it also provides a clear vision of the future. The book captures how dynamic and fast-changing the retail business is—which I find fascinating—and it challenges me to always stay ahead and improve." ELISABETH WEINSTOCK "I'm currently reading 'Business Stripped Bare: Adventures of a Global Entrepreneur' by Richard Branson. I really admire his hard work and ingenuity, and find his honest candor on successes and setbacks refreshing." NICK FOUQUET "Marcus Aurelius' 'Meditations' has become my daily reading and philosophy of my life." READING ANNEX Misty Copeland We asked a few of our favorite jewelry and accessories designers to share what's on their fall reading list.
