How Cadillac Found New Design Inspiration in Palm Springs and Mid-Century Modern Architecture

Click here to read the full article.

Palm Springs, Calif., is an attractive vacation destination for more than just warm weather and pretty sights. The town is a time capsule for the 1950s and ‘60s, and flaunts its celebration of the past with the world’s highest concentration of mid-20th-century building design and its abundant use of glass. Palm Springs, through its aesthetic, serves as a reminder of post-World War II optimism.

In the Twin Palms neighborhood, for instance, there are no street lights to be found. Street lights mean light pollution, which means an encumbered view of the night’s stars. At daytime, standing inside a 1957-vintage home designed by the late architect William Krisel, it’s hard not to stare at the nearby Santa Rosa Mountains framed through glass that itself soars to the ceiling.

Twelve-time Olympic swimming medalist Natalie Coughlin knew she “didn’t have the personality” to go into coaching when her competitive career eventually came to an end. Although her career isn’t officially over yet — Coughlin raced as recently as last fall — her focus has shifted to areas outside the pool.

Among them, motherhood (her daughter Zennie was born in 2018) and the culinary arts — particularly, the business of wine. She picked up a love of food while traveling to compete — Coughlin distinctly remembers the ceviche-like dish Poisson Cru in French Polynesia — and was always a fan of wine, so when her winemaker friend of 15 years pitched her on starting a label, Coughlin’s answer was an immediate yes.

The Slipper Brand Stubbs & Wootton Became a Favorite of Royals and Celebrities

The Duchess of Marlborough and socialite Charlotte Ford were a couple of the earliest reported clients. Kanye West and Olivia Palermo have been wearing them for a decade. Valentino front man Carlos Souza is an unofficial brand ambassador. Even Valentino Garavani himself has been photographed wearing them in needlepoint, as has Aquazzura creative director Edgardo Osorio, and Vogue’s Hamish Bowles. Carolina Herrera and her husband Rienaldo wear them often. NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony and actress Rebel Wilson have identical pairs in black velvet with a skull and swords motif, Lady Gaga was snapped wearing the “Martini” in navy velvet, and Grace Kelly’s grandson Pierre Casiraghi has them in black velvet with cheeky “Screw You” embroidery (as does Scott Disick).
