COURTING KINGS

It should come as no surprise that men’s accessories designer Remo Tulliani’s newest addition to his collection is made with fine black leather and silver gilding. It might, however, be a surprise to many that it isn’t a belt, sunglasses or socks. Tulliani invited a cadre of his closest friends and industry colleagues to the House of Blues for a sneak peek of his 456-page debut title “Courting Kings.” The book, a self-published compendium of photographs, interviews, essays and inspirational sayings, profiles 20 personal heroes. Many of the men featured on its pages attended the event, including designer Donald J. Pliner, U.S. Polo Association Cliff Lelonek and former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner. The $200, hand-bound book will be officially released in November.
