the beaton track

While picking up an iced latte at King’s Road Café (who, by the way, serves the strongest coffee in LA!), I stopped to peruse the amazing magazine stand located just around the corner. A headline on the February issue of World of Interiors stopped me dead in my tracks: “The Glamour Gang’s Getaway: Jackie Kennedy’s Secret Holiday Hangout." I picked it up and promptly devoured. The said cover story highlights a rather remote estancia located in the provence of Córdoba, Argentina. The estate, dubbed San Miguel de Cárcano, has been visited by the likes of Jackie and Cecil Beaton (he wrote about it in detail in his diary, which was later published as The Parting Years) and at one point was only accessible by mule. Love. As expected with anything that runs in World of Interiors, it's a wonderful piece. My one complaint? I would have died to know the details of Jackie's visit - what did she do? wear? eat?! But I guess that's what made this destination so attractive to someone of her caliber... what happens in San Miguel de Cárcano, says in San Miguel de Cárcano :)
