The classic hiking boot comes off the trails and onto the streets

with an urban reinterpretation by such designers as Prada, Gucci and Chloe. Rugged, lug-soled, and all laced-up, sporty originals from Danner

and Moncler look fab in the fashion mix too!

 

LEFT COLUMN: DANNER MOUNTAIN PASS BOOT $359. This is the original, an ever stylish classic, born in the 1960’s when backpacking and climbing were in their burgeoning days. The Mountain Pass is a lighter and more versatile variation, built for light hikes and city streets, and shown here in cool black leather with bright red laces.

MONCLER BLANCHE SUEDE ANKLE BOOT $615. With that iconic mountaineering style, these suede apres-ski boots are chic and sporty enough for everyday. Crafted from brown suede and finished with a subtle glitter, they feature classic detailing accentuated with multi-color laces and a signature tricolor sole.

PRADA VELVET ANKLE BOOTS $750. Taking it up a notch, Prada does this season’s must-have boot in plush black velvet! Offset by a chunky lug sole sole and two-tone laces, its stand out style brings a little glam to a rugged look and they’re warm too!

W.O.W! Working Out With Alysia Reiner

 

ALYSIA REINER, PATRICIA MORENO, YOUR EDITOR

Photos by Casey Steffens

Fans of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black know Alysia Reiner as the assistant prison warden, Natalie “Fig” Figueroa, one of those antagonistic characters you love to hate on a show. Though probably most recognized for this role, this busy actress and producer has a plethora of other current roles to her credit as well. Alysia stars as Sunny on the new F/X show Better Things; District Attorney Wendy Parks on How To Get Away With Murder; and Lilian Izikoff on Rosewood, just to name a few. She was also one of the stars and producers of the acclaimed 2016 Wall Street film Equity. Other television and film appearances are far too numerous to list, but reading her IMDb page, it kind of seems like she’s been in everything. And to top it all off, she just launched a new fashion line, Livari.

So how does this over-achieving actress, producer, designer, wife, and mother find the time to workout? For Alysia it’s a daily priority and has been since she was a teenager. We first met at SoulCycle, where she is a regular, but HIIT classes, yoga, and Patricia Moreno’s IntenSati are a part of her weekly fitness rotation – the latter to which she brought me for this installment of “W.O.W! Working out With”.
 


 

Patricia Moreno is a legendary instructor who has been on the forefront of the fitness industry since the late 1990’s. She started her career at the famed Jeff Martin Studio, and then made her home at Equinox for over 20 years. Patricia’s story deserves a feature in itself, but to share it succinctly, despite being one of the most popular, successful, and well-known fitness instructors, she struggled with her weight and an eating disorder her entire life. On every crazy diet from the age of 10, she became an expert at losing weight, but was never able to maintain it. It was in one devastating moment, outed for her weight gain by the producers of a morning television program on which she was the fitness expert, she realized if she was unable to succeed, how could anyone else? She made it her mission to figure out what was missing and how to create sustainable change.

Now on view at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery is “Day to Night”, the second exhibition of works on this theme by photographer Stephen Wilkes. The images represent a visual exploration of an iconic location, photographed from daybreak to nightfall, often capturing an historical event from start to finish: Easter Mass at the Vatican in 2016; the Inauguration of President Obama at the U.S. Capital in 2013; and on our Style of Sport beat, the final stage of the Tour de France in Paris in 2016.

At first glance, what is most obvious in these photographs is the light changing as time progresses from day into night. On closer inspection however, which is mandatory, what you see is everything that happened during that time span, seamlessly compressed – literally — into one image. Taken from a single fixed position, Wilkes selects from hundreds of moments captured, putting together all these slivers of time and what occurred within them, into a single image. For his sport photographs, our point of entry, like the Tour de France mentioned, the famous Palio horse race in Siena, or the America’s Cup in San Francisco Bay – we see the start, middle, and finish of the race all in one view.

Two For One

 

 

Twin sisters, Cristen Barker and Kimmy Hise, are better known as the ChinTwins. Former fashion models, this gorgeous yogi duo has an Instagram following that has swelled to over 70,000 since we last featured them in Twin Poses. Using their powerful platform as social media influencers, the sisters have paired with Senhoa on the Clarity Collection, a jewelry line created to provide safe employment to survivors of human trafficking in Cambodia.
 
Senhoa is a non-profit organization that provides assistance, education, training and opportunities to women and girls who are at risk or have survived human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Cambodia. Each artisan individually handcrafts every piece of jewelry and 100 percent of the sales goes towards funding early intervention initiatives. Senhoa’s mission is to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation through empowerment, advocacy, and prevention programs.

Ready, Set, Show!

 

 
Now in its fourth year, The Rolex Central Park Horse Show has taken over Wollman Rink once again, transforming New York City’s famed ice skating rink into a Grand Prix show jumping ring. Nestled at the bottom of Central Park, with the city’s skyscrapers behind it, this urban yet bucolic setting makes for a spectacular venue. The show has become a highlight of the equestrian circuit, attracting the biggest names in the sport who come to compete under the lights and under the stars in the heart of New York City.

The course itself is extremely challenging for both riders and horses, squeezing the multiple combinations of head high jumps that define a Grand Prix competition into what is a small and oddly shaped arena. But first there is the metamorphosis of an ice skating rink into a horse ring which is no easy feat. From the first load of dirt to the first horse in the ring, it is about 5 non-stop days and nights of activity – one that we thought would fun to document. The time lapse video shown above takes place over the course of week, compressing the whole process into about 90 seconds.
