A DESIGN FOR LIFE Celebrating the style and the substance by Violet Wilder of Giorgio Armani.

F

or most designers, their time in the spotlight is fleeting. There’s a spell where the echoes of something effervescent grow loud and strong, but more often than not these style stimulators sink back into a lower division of fashion finesse, always trying thereafter to perfect that look, or cut, or fold.

that, seemingly, they can do no wrong. For every Versace there is a Westwood; for every Lagerfeld there is a McQueen. And while the eccentric demands of the fashion world see so many true image shapers depart all too soon, others hold off, almost in perpetuity in order to see what comes next.

But t every now and again, there is a mainstay; a visionary so ubiquitous, long-lasting and revered

Giorgio Armani is one such heavyweight. Now 85, Italy’s most successful fashion designer may be

10

one to paint longevity and prosperity (his empire is worth in excess of £7billion), but more than that, his is a story of small beginnings, genuine innovation and unparalleled ambition. “For me it has always been an addiction,” he begins. “I have always viewed fashion as a necessity, not just a pleasure.” “To crystallise how I feel about what I do, it is my aim to always achieve that unique feeling when you


try something on for the first time. It is that emotion that grips you from the inside and transports you to the place where you feel a million dollars.” “My aim is, every time, to help someone feel that way. That is something, I believe, we should all aspire to.” Starting out as a simple window-dresser in a Milan store in 1957, his ideas stimulated the Nino Cerruti brand before he made the jump to launching his own menswear label in 1974. A few years of gradual progress gave way to a rapid expansion of the designer’s reputation when he was asked to dress actor Richard Gere for the film American Gigolo, in 1980. Suddenly, with the endorsement of a major Hollywood name, as well as the global recognition his soft-shouldered suit silhouette received, the upward progression of his eponymous brand began to ascend new heights. And yet, while Armani’s style chic offered a blueprint for where fashion was destined to head throughout the Eighties and Nineties, it was as much the designer’s propensity to adopt brave, bold, unconventional marketing drives that really drove his lines forward. “The Armani brand has always been there to

convey confidence and positivity,” he says. “That isn’t to say we are arrogant, because we are not, but we take pride and pleasure in showing off a form of style and pride that resonates through everything we do.” In simple terms, that was innovative television campaigns, entire street ‘takeovers’, extensive cinematic collaborations, and the early days of what we now recognise as content marketing. “Fashion magazines have always been the most peculiar things,” he says. “They are already these strange bibles of ideas and images, but they are produced on someone else’s terms.” “We got to the point where we had enough of a voice, and certainly the confidence, to produce our own editorial.” “We knew that the more we talked about the brand, the more people would understand it and buy into it – it really was as simple as that.” Frequently holding hands with celebrity influencers, Armani has been careful to distance the brand away from negative associations or unrealistic aims. This was best epitomised when they announced they would no longer work with models who have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 18,

in the wake of model Ana Carolina Reston starving herself to death. “Sometimes you realise the industry has gone too far… that the demands of the industry have gone too far,” he admits. “It’s at that point you have to take responsibility for the part you have played, and I think we’ve always done that.” “We have to accept we are an industry of aspiration – aspiration over image, over physical size, over status. It puts tremendous pressure on people to conform and to keep fighting for the next achievement, where really we need to step back from time to time.” They are wise words that Armani, himself, has begun to follow. While the past few years have seen him slip back out of the limelight in some ways, his brand, his image and his reputation will forever leave the charming Italian as one of the world’s most present and respected moderninfluencers. “If the example I am setting is to be stylish and happy, then good. And on top of that, if it is to show people what can be achieved with dedication and desire, then how can I ever not believe I have done something important.” “I will take that,” he smiles.

CALLING ALL INVESTORS IN

CYPRUS LLC is a UK based holiday letting company attracting investment from Cyprus to the UK for the purpose of sourcing, acquiring, renovating, adapting property to create self service accommodation in the UK. Why Cyprus.

Why UK.

One of the Directors is now based in Cyprus with great connections. Cyprus is geographically in Europe but strategically close to North Africa, Turkey, Syria and other Arab speaking nations and is currently attracting inward investment from China as well as the nations already mentioned.

Economically, socially and technically the world is changing rapidly and we believe investors will look to secure their futures by investing in a country that historically thrived under huge challenges, by way of example WW2, whilst at the same time supporting free markets. Though things change we believe a free market economy is a value that the British Economy will not suppress.

LLC has connections with a publication that can serve to attract inward investment to the UK. In essence we can serve, develop, attract and close deals of inward investment to the UK.

Given the government has left Europe as a trading bloc the government will seek to open up new markets from the Americas to Austral-Asia continents which will inevitably be good news for ports such as Liverpool, Hull & Southampton bringing inward jobs and investment. LLC will seek to capitalise on this opportunity.

The Pandemic could justifiably curb enthusiasm for overseas visits making holiday breaks in the UK more attractive. Call +44 151 236 503 or Email Info@lifestylelivingcyprus.com

CHARLI XCX

How I’m feeling now announcement transcript

Hi

guys, it’s Charli here. I hope you’re doing whatever it is you need to do to stay positive during this time of completely unknown, unchartered territory. For me, staying positive goes hand in hand with staying creative, and so that’s why I’ve decided I’m going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch. The nature of this album is going to be very indicative of the times because I’m only going to be able to use the tools I have at my fingertips to create all music, all artwork, all videos… everything - in that sense, it’ll be very DIY. I’ll also be reaching out to people online to collaborate with, and I’m going to keep the entire process super open, so that anybody who wants to watch can. I’ll be posting demos, I’ll be posting acapellas, I’ll be posting text conversations with

me and any collaborators, I’ll be filming myself in the studio, I’ll be doing Zoom conferences to ask fans or anyone watching for opinions or ideas, I’m going to set up an email address so that fans or anyone can send me beats or references… the whole thing in that sense will be extremely collaborative because anybody who wants to be involved can explore their creativity alongside mine.

The album is going to come out May 15th, which is kind of soonish, I suppose, and there’s a couple of scratch ideas but I’m basically starting from nothing, so hopefully I meet the deadline! The album is called ‘how i’m feeling now’, which is a working title but I kind of like it. So yeah, that’s it! I can’t wait to start making this, and I can’t wait to share this whole process with you. That’s it - bye!” 17

Lifestyle meets Angie Savory who has lived in Cyprus since 2012. She runs Fatcats mobility as well as being an avid animal rights campaigner Tell us about your disability business After holidaying for years here, some friends wanted to visit with their two sons who have Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy (similar to ALS), I realised how difficult travelling with a disability was and I vowed that when I moved here, after making a decision to end my Intensive Care Nursing carer in UK, that I would make a difference. I offer a unique service in Eastern Cyprus, offering

short and long term *rental of disABILITY and mobility equipment, to both tourists and travellers, *a palliative care bed rental package, *sales of new and used equipment plus a *repair service i am licensed to teach first aid here, and will be aiming to start a *carers and home help service in the future. My purpose is to encourage more people with additional needs to enjoy this beautiful island, and to assist people when

they auffer accidents or lmife changing health. You rescue dogs, how many do you have now and how many have you rescued over the years? Currently I have 6 of my own dogs, of which only one is an original family pet from UK, the others have come to me from being abandoned or from other rescue requests, or simply dumped or tied at my home. I have 6 dogs for adoption at the moment I have rehomed an average of 5 dogs per year and they can be adopted in Cyprus after application and home check, others have gone to Los Angeles, UK, Germany.

EX PLOR E

NATURE WALKS AROUND LARNACA LARNACA – VOROKLINI BEACH TRAIL The Larnaca – Voroklini Beach Trail takes you on a long walk of several kilometres along the beautiful coastal front of Larnaka Bay. The permanent walking structure, was awarded an international architectural prize and runs parallel to the sea along the eastern beaches of Larnaca towards Voroklini and Pyla. The sandy coast part of the trail is rich in seashells and tiny colourful stones, whilst the sunrise and sunset on this part of the beach are magical. SALT LAKE NATURE TRAIL Located west of the city centre, this 4km trail has two main starting points; the first at the Kamares Aqueduct and the second at the salt collection plateau near the airport. Aside from the majestic migratory birds and the interesting plant life of the area, the Goddesses Artemis-Diana and Aphrodite-Astarte were worshiped at the site. A sanctuary, which no longer 22 survives, existed in this

area, and an elegant sculpture of Artemis Diana was discovered here, with a copy now adorning the roundabout on Artemis Avenue. The close connection of the area with these Greek, Semetic and Roman Goddesses is mirrored in the ultra-red sunsets that can be enjoyed on the trail. This trail is also part of the European Walking Route E4. CITY SEAFRONT WALK: FOINIKOUDES - PIALE PASHIA - MCKENZIE Starting from Europe Square (the start of the palm tree promenade, Foinikoudes, opposite the marina) you can enjoy a seamless 5km walk along the city’s seafront pavements, firstly along the promenade then along the upgraded Piale Pashia sea walkway, all the way up to the popular hotspot of McKenzie Beach. The first – and shorter - part of the walk along the promenade reaches the Medieval Castle. Thereafter, the walk continues along Piale Pashia, which was completely remodelled

in 2014 and offers two walking paths; one on road level, partitioned with glass panels that do not obstruct the sea views, and a second lower walkway with a feeling of ‘walking on the water’. There are also ample wooden and stone pebble benches along the path. The route passes the section of road that is lined with traditional tavernas - offering fish and meat meze - and past the old Turkish Cypriot neighbourhoods. WALKING IN TRADITIONAL QUARTERS For a stroll with historical and cultural elements, the traditional city quarters between Agios Lazaros (Saint Lazaru) Church, the market place and the town centre’s shopping streets offer a relaxed and interesting walk that takes in many old buildings, along with an optional visit to the Pierides Museum or the Kyriazis Medical Museum. Walkers can also continue along the promenade that runs parallel to the town centre.

KELLY GREENSLADE - WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH CYPRUS

A

yia Napa is a magical place, you know because you’re here and I guarantee you’ll fall in love with it before you leave. Let me start by saying that this island is addictive and so much so that I have been coming since 1997. I even married at the famous Olympic Lagoon Hotel in 2011. It’s a cool resort for young and old, without wanting to use the cliche, it’s hip and happening and hasn’t been spoilt like other party islands like Ibiza, retaining it’s rustic charm My love for all urban & old skool music encouraged me to start an Old Skool Weekender For Overs & Like Minded People Fast forward to summer 2018 & we hosted our first Weekender. It’s more than weekend of dance, it evolved because I wanted to create something different to club 18-30’s with the chance to build a following. And of course it’s important for me to make it an annual event and support the local businesses. We did 2019 in style. We started with

a beach party set down at the famous Nissi Beach, hosted by London’s Legends Mc Darky & Mc Fro, with local Dj Dope Boy Fingas, then Hotel Napa suites for a sunset rooftop party with local Dj Eli along side Old Skool UK Giants Firin Squad - who performed at a majority of our events, we joined Switch at the famous Club Black & White & it went down with resident host/ Dj Pav Volatile & Dj Moky. The God Father of UK Garage - Norris The Boss Windross & Kiss FM’s Master of House Dj Pioneer entertained us on the wheels of steel at Laderna Bar in the Main Square on the Saturday night & We Finished the weekend with a Boat party on Nemo Boat with the Best Of Bristol

DJ BUNJY & Mc Joe Peng hosting and shooting their latest music video for their UK URBAN/Reggae Band Laid Blak. We can’t wait to return in September for even more fun in the sun & look forward to seeing old & new faces this year to make more amazing memories in 23 the beautiful sunshine.

7 STEPS TO

SOCIAL SUCCESS

W

e all know social media marketing is a must in today’s digital world, but perhaps your accounts haven’t quite delivered the boost in business you were looking for. In order to get the most out of the platforms available to you, quality content is top of your list.

There are currently 3.8 billion users on social media, 54% of which use social media to browse products. Social media is a tool for building relationships, raising brand awareness, reaching new customers and generating new business. All this and more can be achieved by keeping one simple goal in mind… Telling your story. 1. Look for your customers, you need to show up where they are. Instagram and Facebook are both great B2C platforms that together will help you cover a wide demographic. 2. Have a little nosy at your competitors’ content and see what their customers like to engage 26 with.

3. Familiarise yourself with analytics, specifically metrics such as reach, clicks, comments and engagement. These will help you determine which content produces the best results. 4. Think about your content, is it telling your story? Tell your potential customers about you, your products/services, your team, exciting news and special offers. Share positive feedback, user generated content and useful information. Start a conversation. If you’re not entertaining, ensure you’re informing. Demonstrate your value to the customer.

check out your new menu or offer their opinion. Use geotags, locations, hashtags and stickers where available to increase your reach. 7. Create a content plan full of your ideas to help you stick to a schedule. There’s only one real rule for post frequency… quality over quantity! Good luck telling your story, Naomi x

5. Think about types of content. You can use videos, photos and interactive posts such as polls, permanent content such as posts and time restricted content such as stories. If in doubt try a few and use your metrics to see what works for your business. 6. Ensure your content is on brand and remember to add a call to action. Direct users to visit your website,

PAUL WELLER W

Interview with Neil Barston

idely regarded as one of the UK’s most successful songwriters, Paul Weller’s 15th solo album is set for release this month. Having turned 62 this year, he is very much at ease with himself, some distance from the widely perceived image of the ‘angry young man’ of his early career fronting The Jam.

himself over the course of more than 40 years. He’s managed to walk the line between classic rock, punk and new wave, through to 60s soul that inspired the Style Council, and later balladry that has equally attracted critical acclaim and resonated with long-term fans.

“I don’t really celebrate birthdays, but my daughter shares mine, so it’s very much about her,” he gestures breezily, explaining that if anything, he’s enjoying songwriting more than ever, and is in a rich vein of creativity.

His last recording two years ago, True Meanings, narrowly missed becoming Weller’s fifth number one solo album, but having consciously built it around the lilting lullaby of Gravity, he says that it placed him in a strong position considering his latest recordings.

The ‘Modfather’ belongs in that most rare of categories in being an artist who has successfully reinvented

While the unwelcome arrival of the coronavirus pandemic may have scratched out his latest

round of UK gigs, he has been working in his beloved Surrey studio, Black Barn, to lay down new material. “I've actually been very focused being at home these past few weeks, doing a lot of writing, as well as some more recording in the studio. To be honest, these days when I am not working, I am actually home quite a lot with my wife and kids as we've been home schooling.“ “I haven't really been bothered by the lockdown, other than having to queue for food or medicine,” he offers of the present situation that has placed the music industry, as much


as the wider economy, largely on pause.

teenager on his first tour of America.

Beyond music, family is clearly a major priority, and he seems pleased at least two of his eight children including daughter Leah have shown real musical ability. He says that ‘they sometimes patronise me,” in a fashion only children can achieve with their parents.

“I was out near the Whisky A Go Go Club in LA and hadn't really walked that area of the city since I was 19. A huge amount of time has elapsed since then, so it's a reflective song about that.“

It’s a consistent theme across a record that places centre stage some of the soul motifs belying his earliest musical influences. As for the album’s title track, On Sunset, he was inspired by catching up with his eldest son in Los Angeles, which holds particularly strong memories for him as a

“I can't believe it's 25 years old, but I still think it's a great record that stands up now. It showed the progress made since that first solo album. It was just a really creative time for me and I've some really fond memories of that period.” As well as his strong attention to sartorial detail as befitting anyone from the mod revival scene, Weller has been noted for his passion for seeking out new music and offering assistance to likeminded acts.

For his own part, he’s recently completed final production work on his latest album, On Sunset, which notably stands as his 15th solo recording. Lead single Earth Beat offers a lush slice of soul pop, which is swiftly followed by Village, which neatly sums up its optimistic spirit that seems refreshingly relaxed amid these complex, challenging times.

autobiographical recording to date, in being named after the street he grew up in Woking, Surrey.

“It also became something else about being in a place in time looking for old friends and lovers and how everyone has moved on,” he says of the album’s core theme that offers a nostalgic glance over his shoulder. It’s been 25 years since Weller released Stanley Road, perhaps his most

He’s still passionate about touring, and says his regular touring band, including Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, are ‘chomping at the bit’ to get back out on the road. However, they’re still at the mercy of conditions as to whether their autumn tour will be permitted over coronavirus.

WE LLB E ING

SAM FOLEY - YOGA T his month’s theme is let it go and go with the flow. After summer solstice we move into the water element. As we are 84 per cent water, it’s important we flow in our daily lives. When we forget to drink water, we can become as dry as the desert on Mother Earth. So it’s wise to become mindful of drinking water and making it a habit every day. Water is also associated with emotion, where we can seem fine on the surface but emotions are bubbling away underneath. We have lived at such a fast pace before the Covid -19 arrived and changed our lives forever, that adjusting to the new rules and regulations can trigger anxiety and a longing for life before the pandemic. Well all is not lost, it’s a good idea to take time out and sit at the beach, meditate by listening to the sounds of the ocean, feeling the warm sun on your face and body and allowing yourself to open your heart and flood your

30

body with affirmations of gratitude. You can start by telling your body your so grateful for your increasing health, that your you and your family are safe and well, that you are blessed to have such a wonderful beach. If old feelings of anxiety or panic should arise,be mindful of were you are and bring yourself into the here and now. You can do this by becoming aware of where you by reconnecting to the sound of the sea, feel the sand underneath you or the rock you could be sat on and say to yourself that was then, this is now. Remember to reference the past, but it is not your future and it is safe for you to release it, to learn the lessons and move forward with the knowledge you can trust yourself. Being at the beach purifies your magnetic field also known as your aura. The salt air eats away at the negative ions and replaces with positive ions to balance you.

To move your body, is to go with the flow and to swim is a great way of flowing too. To lie back in the water and let mother earth hold is probably something you’ve not experienced since you were little by being held by your parents or family. Morning is the best time to do yoga on the beach before it gets too hot. Even doing 10 rounds of the salute to the sun which consists of 12 yoga poses can get you stretched, releases any tension in the muscles ,and think clear for the day. That’s a total of 120 yoga asanas (poses) to set you up for the day. So enjoy summer, let go and go with the flow but most of all stay safe x

And I think that’s most important beyond any professional endeavours. Next I would say I’m a mentor, Following on from that WOULD BE ENTREPRENEURSHIP. HOW EASY WAS IT FOR YOU TO TRANSITION FROM OBSCURITY TO THE HUGE SUCCESS YOU ARE TODAY? I think failing is an important lesson learned and I think something that every entrepreneur or professional needs to know, is that, this whole notion of “failing fast to succeed faster!” I think it’s important to try one thing, but try that one thing in many ways.

advocate of the book “The One Thing”. In the book is the notion that we can tap into our greatness if we can double down and focus on one thing. YOU HAVE WORKED WITH SOME OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BILLIONAIRES IN THE WORLD. HOW DO YOU DEVELOP OR MAINTAIN A MINDSET THAT IS POSITIVE. OR HOW DOES SOMEONE CHANGE A NEGATIVE MINDSET TO A POSITIVE? It begins by just analysing the content you currently intake. Your daily intake. It could be the people that you speak to on a daily basis, it could be the blogs that you read, it could be the television that you listen to. It could be the music that you listen to. Whatever the content is that you intake, on a daily weekly or monthly basis. Ask yourself

simply, how much of it is inspirational, how much is aspirational and how much of it is essentially neutral and how much is negative. I believe that the most successful people, are able to make the vast majority of the content they intake aspirational and inspirational. WHAT DRIVES YOU? My motivation has changed throughout the years. You know at one point it was about money, at one point it was about status, at one point it was about self and ego. But quite honestly what drives me at this point in my life is legacy you know that’s really what its about for me. Legacy for me is not just what to my children, or what I’m leaving to my family, to my friends, to my community, to my world. That legacy category is what drives me and that’s what keeps my foot on the pedal.

“Our restaurant, our life’’

Our dream was to one day create good service for tourists that would make their holidays here in Cyprus, even more special. This dream came true in 1989, where we established a small family business in Ayia Napa, a restaurant, as I (Theo) am a trained chef and my brother (Peter) is a trained waiter. Since then we have tried our best to provide as much satisfaction as possible to our customers.

There’s a reason why Flames Restaurant is listed as one of Trip Avisor’s top ten restaurants in Ayia Napa. Dedicated to providing an excellent service, its winning mix of friendly staff, a great atmosphere and delicious food has delighted diners since it was established 1989.

If traditional Cypriot dishes are what your after, Flames is the place to go. You’ll find House Specialities, Steak, Grills, Fish, Pasta Vegan and Vegetarian Dishes on the Menu. Not to mention its fabulous Wine list and homemade desserts - all chosen to complement your meal perfectly.
