BESPOKE FOREWORD

E

veryone we spoke to for our new edition of Bespoke seemed to echo the feeling that the clouds drifting over our southern skies are beginning to show their silver lining. Apart from a couple of sectors, the South African economy appears to be relatively robust, petrol prices are coming down and the fact that the days are now brighter and warmer as the long summer stretches out before us brings a feeling of growing confidence. A handful of interesting South Africans - scenario planner Clem Sunter, philanthropist Shelagh Gastrow, top jazz musician Jimmy Dludlu and ex Miss South Africa Jo- Ann Strauss spoke to Bespoke about their plans, our country, the economy and the way forward. Clem Sunter likens South Africa to a Premier League nation, which although may be facing relegation, is still “not a bad place to see out the hard times”. On the property front you may have noticed we have re branded our property business to O’Shea Properties which gives you the client access to local and worldwide properties through our direct network of highly skilled professionals , be it London , Dubai, Mauritius or Cape Town. Over the years it became apparent that you couldn’t run a private client business on a franchise basis you need a direct network and that’s what we have done, Our re- branding is also a tribute to our late Chairman Dr Vincent Msibi who wanted this to happen for many years, May he rest in peace. Vincent you are always in our thoughts, We have found fun shopping venues, bring you new style trends in fashion and décor, get a glimpse into the world of art, suggest amazing train journeys and offer you a selection of some of the finest property in the world. Our financial commentator Lindsay Williams believes that although commodities are not going anywhere fast, the worlds leading economies, buoyed up by China, are still in a bull market. So we intend grabbing it by the horns and looking forward to some sunshine after all the rain.

Seven

of the most Spectacular Train Trips in the World

Trains are the ultimate escape. They take you back to a pace of yesteryear and bring out a childlike euphoria as they whiz though dark tunnels, climb over high gorges and deposit you in dusty deserts and ancient towns. The trips we have selected here are no ordinary journeys, they are the most luxurious and highly rated in the world. Most include on-board guides, musicians, gourmet meals and drinks as part of their fare. Although train travel involves a lot of sedentary behaviour – sitting, thinking, reading, eating and then uh… more sitting, the journey generally includes stop offs, walks and tours around natural wonders and historical sites. If you long to hear the rhythmical clickety-clack of the wheels on the track, and need a restful, romantic trip, it’s time to get on the rails, writesHelen Wills.

Carl Walter Meyer From the East

Smart art collections reflect who you are and what you stand for, and are purchased by companies with the same application and prudence as the acquisition of any other valuable asset, writes Philip Todres.

“We are culturally enriched and elevated in our humanity by having art around us. If we wish to build a cultural environment that elevates the soul of South Africa we must invest in it and do so in an organised and deliberate fashion.�
