CH ECK OUT

CATCH A RAINBOW When the long cold days of winter set in, there is no better antidote than an unashamedly cheerful accessory. The Paperchain incarnation of Anya Hindmarch’s classic Vere satchel, inspired by traditional festive decorations and bright pops of spectral colours, is just the thing to

drive the dark seasonal clouds away. The mini design is best carried as a clutch to let the strap really stand out. Wear yours with neutral shades such as an elegant camel evening coat or with straight-leg blue denim to spruce up a daytime look. Anya Hindmarch’s autumn/ winter 2017/18 collection uses traditional leather craft

by Benjamin Deakin, give character to the decor. The revamped store now also offers a made-to-order service, allowing customers to have ties or shirts made to their exact specification. Drake’s creates apparel, shirts, ties and accessories for men: the brand is

DESIGN LAB Bump is the latest collection of home accessories from leading London design brand Tom Dixon, whose eponymous founder holds an OBE for services to British design. Aiming to elevate the everyday rituals – and instruments – of drinking and hosting, the collection features vases, jugs, glasses and a tea set, all delicately handmade. The range is inspired by laboratory apparatus, resulting in minimalist yet striking shapes which are softened by a subtle colour scheme of pink and grey. Made from borosilicate, a heat-resistant glass used in laboratories, each piece has been hand-blown into an engineered graphite mould, to truly striking effect. hl Liberty, Regent Street, London W1B 5AH, +44 (0)20 7734 1234, liberty.co.uk FOR M A P GO TO PAGE 71

STARTING POINT Berluti’s autumn/winter 2017/18 collection marks the debut of new creative director Haider Ackermann. The idea of items developing over time, ageing into lasting garments with sentimental value, is intrinsic to the designer’s inaugural offering for the Italian heritage menswear brand. Key wardrobe staples with a cool twist are the star attractions: a black leather aviator jacket with red crocodile skin lapels and lining, a neat suede jacket in dark lilac, velvet tuxedos and cashmere knits. Every piece is timeless in its design, but refreshingly modern in its cut, colour and styling. rre Berluti, 43 Conduit Street, London W1S 2YJ, +44 (0)20 7437 1740, berluti.com FOR M A P GO TO PAGE 70

In 2017 British luxury travel brand Globe-Trotter celebrated its 120th anniversary, so it seems fitting that the autumn/winter collection takes inspiration from the company’s original factory building on London’s St John Street. Designer Charlotte Seddon’s creations reimagine details of the beautiful Victorian brick façade through embroidery, appliqué and patterned linings paired with warm hues such as mustard and aubergine. All the suitcases, bags and small leather goods, including the pictured memory case (£795), are handcrafted by the brand’s experts in Hertfordshire. js Globe-Trotter, 35 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JD, +44 (0)20 7529 5950, globe-trotter.com FOR M A P GO TO PAGE 70

With handcrafting being a central ideal to Jones’s method of work, pieces feature glass enamelling and hand-painted gold to give a gradient effect with the diamonds.

IN STORE: CUTLER AND GROSS British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross, founded in 1969 by Graham Cutler and Tony Gross, is known for its handcrafted heritage and one-of-a-kind pieces. Design director Marie Wilkinson has been part of the company for over 30 years, and her creations are inspired by the label’s archive as well as the work of various architects. She spoke to Fani Mari about the Knightsbridge store and the brand’s long history

‘Back in 1981, I was inspired by Tony Gross and Graham Cutler’s desire to change the perception of glasses from being a medical necessity to a fashion accessory. The possibility of customising and commissioning bespoke frames was thrilling, and knowing the people who would make each pair individually by hand was very special. ‘The brand has developed under the close supervision of its founders, always driving to innovate and create beautifully designed, handmade frames. As ambassadors of handmade eyewear, it was important for them to share this love and knowledge through their own eight stores around the world and via prominent optical and fashion stores. The toughest challenge has been to satisfy demand. Buying the company’s own factory [in Cadore in northern Italy] in 2008 has been a liberating and empowering experience. ‘Cutler and Gross has established itself as a brand with a bold, independent spirit, leading the way by inspiring clients to experiment with new and unique designs rather than simply following mass-market trends. We have spearheaded the revival of handmade eyewear and beautiful craftsmanship, and want to make both ready-to-wear and bespoke glasses accessible to anyone with the taste and imagination. ‘The Knightsbridge store has been open since 1971 when Graham Cutler discovered this former wig shop, tucked away in a discreet and smart street near Harrods, which was for sale.

around Harley Street, but Cutler and Gross were optometrists themselves and didn’t need to rely on prescriptions from doctors. They wanted to be near the international fashion crowd in Knightsbridge. ‘The current design is only the third in the store’s history. It was originally created by architect Piers Gough and later Tom Bartlett, who are hard acts to follow. As we have our own factory, we also have our own in-house design and architectural office where we are able to conceive the look of the interior ourselves. Our architect is very interested in Patrik Schumacher’s parametricism [an avant-garde architectural style], which has led to an inspiring way of displaying the glasses. The original eye-examination room created by Gough in 1969 remains unaltered, though. ‘In terms of products, Cutler and Gross is best defined by the bold design, exquisite craftsmanship and finest materials that are found in all the brand’s frames. As a taster, we use the best cotton-based acetate, and certain styles feature hypo-allergenic ceramic nose pads, as well as gold and ruthenium platings. ‘Our latest collection includes a mixture of entirely new designs that we expect to become modern classics, as well as a selection of some bestselling frames from the archive that have been reinterpreted with improved fit, manufacture and new lens technology.’ Cutler and Gross, 16 Knightsbridge Green, London SW1X 7QL, +44 (0)20 7581 2250, cutlerandgross.com FOR M A P GO TO PAGE 73

ONE OF A KIND Behind closed doors, London’s leading jewellers are working with their clients to make beautiful bespoke pieces, as Ruairidh Pritchard discovers Left: jewellery designer Jessica McCormack

ondon is one of the best places in the world by far to buy jewellery. From the established diamond district of Hatton Garden to the glittering storefronts of Old Bond Street, clients are spoilt for choice. And above the bustling shopping streets and away from the glare of the diamond-festooned display windows, London’s leading goldsmiths are offering bespoke services that take jewellery shopping in the city to unparalleled levels of luxury. New Zealand-born Jessica McCormack is one of the top jewellers in Mayfair. She’s known for such imaginative creations as her bespoke Party Jackets: rings designed to sit around an existing piece, transforming and elevating the original. At her stunning artfilled Carlos Place townhouse, which she and her team refer to simply as ‘the house’, the

highly skilled goldsmiths have their workshop on the lower ground floor. The salon occupies the ground and first floors, and showcases her stunning seasonal collections, including Chi Chi, a collection inspired by the ancient Chinese method of fortune telling, and Trip The Light Fantastic, a glamorous collection of diamond earrings, cuffs, necklaces and rings that move with the wearer, creating an almost hypnotic sparkle. McCormack also offers a comprehensive bespoke service, working directly with clients looking to create a piece of truly individual jewellery. ‘When working on a bespoke piece I like to spend time getting to know my client

personally by sitting with them in our library, discussing their likes, dislikes and getting to know their style,’ explains McCormack of the process. ‘I then spend some time translating their personal story into lots of hand-drawn sketches, while I work out the final perfect design.’ The process is tailored to each person as much as the jewellery is. ‘The degree of contact with clients varies with each individual. I’ve had clients that like to be involved at every stage whereas others prefer to await the final piece. It’s such a personal journey for each client,’ she says. On the other side of London, in the city’s trendy East End, jewellery designer

Ana de Costa works on bespoke pieces for a variety of discerning clients. After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2005, de Costa worked for Shaun Leane, renowned for designing catwalk pieces for Alexander McQueen, and costume jeweller Erickson Beamon, before opening her own by-appointment-only atelier. ‘Bespoke jewellery and fine jewellery as a whole is a very emotional and personal purchase and I like to take my time with all of my private clients,’ explains de Costa. ‘We discuss initial ideas and the budgets involved as this will form the basis of my initial research into stones and concepts,’ she

continues. In-depth research and an easy understanding of customers’ desires make de Costa stand out. One of her recent bespoke pieces, for example, was an engagement ring for a London-based client. The design featured precious stones that were sourced by de Costa from the bride-tobe’s hometown in Russia. As with McCormack, the whole process from start to finish is tailored to the client. ‘Once the making process is started I have regular conversations with clients to update them on progress and, depending on preference, I send progress shots. However, I have found that a lot of my clients prefer the surprise of seeing the piece at the end.’

Sabine Getty is another of London’s leading jewellers. Her most recent collection, Baby Memphis, follows on from the opulent Memphis collection, but bears the hallmarks of her experiences as a new mother. Featuring a wide range of colourful stones, the collection comprises stackable rings and bracelets, and easy-to-combine earrings and necklaces, all of which give endless potential for a host of different looks. Getty provides a bespoke service to some of the city’s most discerning jewellery lovers, a process that is often sparked by a client’s reaction to her existing designs. ‘After a collection comes out I usually get requests for a

piece that is similar in design but using different stones or using the customer’s stones,’ she explains. When it comes to creating a unique piece, she says, ‘it takes observation and time. One has to listen to what the customer is trying to convey and what they really want. I speak to them many times throughout the process, but it is usually in our first meeting that I get a complete sense of what is desired.’ And it’s seeing the client finally receive their desired pieces that Getty enjoys the most. ‘The most rewarding thing is to see that our client feels they have something special: a piece of jewellery that is made for them and matches their personality.’


A Cut Above Savile Row may be known for its history of great tailoring, but its residents have their sights set firmly on the future, says Maria Kirchen-Hill Above: Henry Poole & Co fabrics


Often known as ‘the golden mile of tailoring’, London’s Savile Row is one of the world’s most famous destinations when it comes to bespoke menswear, and with good reason. It is home to some of the most talented tailors in the field, and the street’s name has become a byword for excellent suiting. For men or for women, the 84

classic or the contemporary, there is absolutely no better place in the capital for madeto-measure clothing. The first tailors made their home on Savile Row at the turn of the 19th century, attracted by the affluent residents of Mayfair, which remains one of the city’s most upmarket neighbourhoods. None of the original firms 88

94

remain, but many of today’s establishments have long histories on the street, including Henry Poole & Co, which has had a presence there since 1846, and today occupies 15 Savile Row. The firm’s eponymous founder ran the business from 1846 to 1876, during which he outfitted the future Emperor Napoleon III of France, was


50 | F E AT U R E S

employed by Queen Victoria and was tailor of choice to the Prince of Wales, who became King Edward VII. By the end of his three decades at the helm, Poole had played a huge part in establishing Savile Row as a haven for bespoke tailoring and Poole’s as one of its shining stars. By the early 1900s it was the largest establishment of its type in the world, employing 300 tailors and 14 cutters. To this day, discerning gentlemen travel to London from all parts of the world to be fitted for a bespoke suit at Poole’s. The company is credited with creating the dinner jacket (aka the tuxedo), so this is naturally a popular choice. But the team offers

everything from morning and evening dress to bespoke blazers, sports jackets, shirts, coats and – of course – suits, along with a wide array of beautiful accessories. Clients can choose from over 6,000 fabric swatches – all of the finest quality – and the team will make each piece to your exact measurements. Just as Henry Poole & Co has evolved with the times, so too has Savile Row, and the street is also home to a number of leading fashion brands. Ready-to-wear was first introduced in the 1970s by such brands as Gieves & Hawkes and Hardy Amies, but the arrival of international names is a relatively new development. French fashion

house Lanvin has its London menswear flagship here, which offers the brand’s ready-towear collection, its trademark luxury bow ties, a wide range of accessories and leather goods, and even a made-tomeasure suiting service. For Lanvin, Savile Row was the natural choice of location. ‘It’s mythic,’ said Alber Elbaz, Lanvin’s designer at the time of the store’s opening. ‘For me, in London, there was no other place.’ Dean and Dan Caten, the twin brothers who are co-creative directors of catwalk label Dsquared2, had similar feelings when it came to opening their own store. ‘Our London flagship store is very special for us

It’s no wonder Savile Row is world famous

because we live in this city, which is a constant influence and source of inspiration for us,’ say the pair. ‘It is not by chance that we chose the Savile Row intersection with Conduit Street as the position. Over the years, Savile Row has been one of the most important destinations for fashion-conscious men and has become synonymous with high quality, tradition, originality – values which are imbued in our designs as well.’ The boutique carries the brand’s full range of collections, including contemporary tailoring in new wools and stretch cottons and womenswear. Although there have been exciting new developments in

the past few decades, the heart of Savile Row remains the art of the bespoke suit. As Tess Harriott, business development manager at 40 Savile Row, explains, this is a product whose appeal transcends age, occupation and the like. ‘The 40 Savile Row customer varies from a young fashion-forward teenager, to graduating students choosing their first interview suit, to professionals in banking, law, insurance and so on. We also have customers who have always dreamed of having a Savile Row suit and will treat themselves for a special occasion.’ The family-run tailoring business is a shining example of the exemplary service

available on the street. ‘Everyone is welcome,’ says Harriott of the store. ‘We all have over 15 years’ experience in the business so can cater to all shapes and tastes and will guide the customer to make the best choice for them. We are all perfectionists, so we will not let a suit leave the shop unless it is of the highest standard, especially the fit of the suit. The aesthetic of the suit is totally designed by the customer and this is what makes it unique.’ Combining the timeless luxury of bespoke apparel with an ability to embrace every style and trend, it’s no wonder Savile Row remains world famous

From pun Vivienne Wk rock fashion to politi estwood cal activ culture for over 40 yea has been an icon of B ism, partner An rs.

n the fickle world of fashion, where today’s big name is tomorrow’s old news, Vivienne Westwood is a rarity. Having burst on to the scene in 1971, and defined the look of the punk era alongside her then partner Malcolm McLaren, Westwood has remained at the cutting edge of fashion and culture for well over four decades. Her eponymous brand is one of the biggest fashion labels in the world and the designer herself is acknowledged as one of the most influential creatives – and activists – in the world today. In 1988, Westwood began teaching at the Vienna School of Applied Arts. It was there that she met Andreas Kronthaler, who was studying fashion design.

85 93

Kronthaler’s original designs caught Westwood’s eye, and she invited him to London to develop them further. His ‘sun wheel’ dresses, inspired by the Renaissance, were featured in the Vivienne Westwood collection in 1989. So began a partnership that has become central to the brand. The pair married in 1993, and today they remain partners in both business and life. Together Westwood and Kronthaler have taken the brand from strength to strength. For Kronthaler, it’s all about balance, and mutual respect: ‘Vivienne is an individual with a revolutionary vision and her image and work are strongly recognisable. She’s a punk and a scholar. This was established when I met her. I too have

a vision and we pooled our resources, intellectually as well as physically. People ask how a couple who live together and work together manage it. We’re both very tolerant and it is stimulating: a learning process.’ For autumn/winter 2016/17 the brand’s Gold Label line – shown each season at Paris Fashion Week – was renamed Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood. This was partly motivated by a desire to recognise the brand as a

joint effort. ‘Over the years Andreas has taken on ever more responsibility and I wish this fact to be reflected in public perception,’ explained Westwood at the time. But it was also an acknowledgement of the two as individuals. ‘I have designed with Vivienne for more than 25 years,’ he explains. ‘We wanted to clarify our lines. Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood: that’s just me. The collection is more couture.’ Both designers are

Above (both): Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood autumn/winter 2017/18

involved on some level with every aspect of the brand, but the separation allows their differences to flourish. ‘We always work quite separately and come back together – we work very differently from each other,’ says Kronthaler of the design process. ‘I constantly try things out and keep changing things; I’m never satisfied and drive Vivienne mad. She is different: she approaches something and makes a decision then builds on it


– she’s very literal and logical. I tend to throw things up and create chaos before I can have order.’ For autumn/winter 2017/18, Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood is inspired by the designer’s home nation. ‘The realisation at the end was that I see myself as an Austrian designer,’ says Kronthaler of the collection. ‘It was about acknowledging my nationality and giving shape to my identity. The landscapes, the people, their costumes: they are my roots. It took me a while to understand the importance of where I was from.’ Designed as a tribute to the Wiener Werkstätte – a community of artists in Vienna in the early 1900s – the collection shows distinct Austrian influences, such as alpine florals and dirndl-inspired silhouettes. But Kronthaler’s artistic Austrian inspirations – Gustav Klimt among them – also led to bold paint splatters, vibrant prints and a cacophony of rich colours, all of which immediately conveyed the signature Vivienne Westwood exuberance. For the Vivienne Westwood mainline collection this season, the eponymous designer once again used her catwalk event and the designs it showcased as a platform, telling a story of eco warriors fighting climate change through her staging. Westwood is a noted activist, and her company is committed to going green – many of the materials she uses are recycled, or use Above (clockwise from top left): two catwalk looks; backstage, all Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood autumn/winter 2017/18

environmentally friendly dyeing and manufacturing processes. Garments are cut in a way that creates as little waste as possible. ‘Buy less, choose well, make it last,’ is a key motto. Westwood’s true talent lies in seamlessly incorporating such political statements into her collections. She sees art and fashion as an important platform for ideas, but the serious issues have never taken away from her wild and vibrant vision. Her

anti climate change mission statement was artfully splashed across trousers and tops in this unisex collection, while elsewhere she favoured bold prints (both abstract and photographic), patchwork appliqué, plaids and a healthy dose of gold lamé. A standout look featured a red tailored dress with matching jacket, which Westwood paired with knee-high red boots, a red cape and a knitted balaclava. Her catwalk styling makes a bold statement, but

individually her pieces are undeniably wearable. These are two very different collections with very different inspirations, and yet put a look from each side by side and the common aesthetic is immediately visible. The Vivienne Westwood style remains one of the strongest signatures in the world of fashion. ‘We have evolved together,’ explains Kronthaler. We can only wait and see where that evolution takes them next

TABLE TALK Dining is always elevated by a spectacular view and these London restaurants have some of the best, says Sally McIlhone

Whether on a rooftop or the uppermost floor of one of the city’s most impressive skyscrapers, London’s best views come as a spectacular side order to its most delectable eateries. The London skyline has many famous landmarks to admire, and the best place to spot St Paul’s Cathedral, the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye, or to admire the curves of the Thames, is always from above. Dining with a view need not be reserved for the last meal of the day. Brunch and lunch options are available for those who prefer to spend their weekends languidly sipping midday cocktails and watching the world go by. And what a world it is from so far above ground. Our selection offers everything from Japanese and South American fusion cuisine to contemporary British flavours. When it comes to fine dining in London, the only way is up. globalblue.com

SUSHISAMBA Marrying the dishes of Peru, Brazil and Japan might sound a complex task, but SushiSamba’s recipes harmonise these contrasting cuisines, and each plate is executed with the utmost finesse. Small plates such as shrimp tempura with spicy mayo and black truffle vinaigrette, or crispy lobster taquitos, are a perfect way to whet your appetite for the enticing main courses. SushiSamba is famous for its Kobe beef, served with a hot stone so guests can cook it themselves at the table; enjoy with a selection of dipping sauces. Dishes from the robata grill, including teriyaki chicken or lamb chop with red miso, are hearty and comforting, and be sure to order a plate from the samba rolls section of the menu – the El Topo is unusual and delicious. For dessert, you cannot beat the alfajores or the mocha: the perfect end to an unforgettable meal. SushiSamba, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY, +44 (0)20 3640 7330, sushisamba.com

BŌKAN Located in the heart of the Canary Wharf business district, Bōkan comprises a restaurant, bar and roof terrace on the 37th, 38th and 39th floors of 40 Marsh Wall. One of the best ways to enjoy the Bōkan experience is with its bottomless brunch, served at weekends and on public holidays, whose menu features European-inspired plates made using the best ingredients from a select group of British suppliers. The three-course menu offers bottomless Prosecco alongside starters of tiger prawn tartare with avocado, little gem lettuce and lime, or veal and pork terrine with dry apricots, capers and toast, followed by English pea risotto or crispy eggs royale with hot-smoked Maldon salmon and wasabi mayonnaise. For dessert, the Paris-Brest – two circular choux pastries with an indulgently creamy praline filling – is hard to beat. Bōkan, 40 Marsh Wall, London E14 9TP, +44 (0)20 3530 0550, bokanlondon.co.uk FENCHURCH Perched on the 37th floor of 20 Fenchurch, also known as the Walkie Talkie, Fenchurch restaurant is housed within the famous Sky Garden. Head chef Daniel Fletcher, appointed earlier this year, comes from The Square restaurant, a two Michelin-starred venue headed up by Phil Howard, so his credentials speak for themselves. Should you still need convincing, a short perusal of the menu should allay any fears. Tasting menus are offered at lunch and dinner (five and eight courses respectively) and feature seasonal plates such as warm salad of violet artichoke, London airdried ham and courgette, followed by poached black cherries with sour cream ice cream and sorrel. A two- or three-course set lunch menu is also available from Sunday to Tuesday, along with the à la carte option. Sommelier Alexandru Pastrav skilfully recommends drinks to accompany your chosen dishes.

With 252 bedrooms, nine restaurants, a members’ club, a barbershop, a beauty salon and a nail bar, The Ned has quickly become one of London’s coolest new hangouts. Housed in a former Midland Bank building in the City of London designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924, the refurbished building remains true to the grandeur of 1920s and 1930s design. Guests at The Ned are granted access to the exclusive members-only Ned’s Club, with its heated rooftop pool and bar, offering stunning views of the City and St Paul’s Cathedral. One of the hotel’s unique features can be found in the basement – the 20-tonne, two-metre-wide vault door which once kept the bank’s strongroom secure now opens into the Vault bar and lounge. The Ned, 27 Poultry, London EC2R 8AJ, +44 (0)20 3828 2000, thened.com

ERMANNO SCERVINO While Ermanno Scervino’s heritage lies deep in the heart of Italy, the label looked to heritage of a different kind for its autumn/winter 2017/18 collection. Traditionally British and decidedly masculine, the Prince of Wales check used for this season’s iteration of the Faubourg adds a touch of traditional tailoring to a classic day bag. An injection of fun and femininity comes from the pop of red that runs along the handle, resulting in a bag that’s anything but usual. The timeless wool makes it perfect for winter, conjuring up images of overcoats and falling temperatures. Pair yours with a warm jacket for equally faultless seasonal style.

AMETSA WITH ARZAK INSTRUCTION Fusing molecular cuisine with the flavours of the Basque country, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction was awarded a Michelin star in 2013. Under the aegis of chef Elena Arzak, the restaurant’s tasting menu is playful and delicious. The platter of starters includes pumpkin and mandarin soup, among other bite-sized delicacies. Dishes such as scallop and hemp seeds and egg in the leaf follow, each more intriguing than the last. Dessert might be a doughless apple doughnut, or a mango and orange flan. One thing is certain: what you can expect – other than a delightful meal – is the unexpected.

并 加强了品牌 实力。对 Kronthaler来说,这一 切的关 键是 平 衡 和 相互尊 重:“ Vivienne是 一 个 相当有 革 新

Но в стороне от шума торговых улиц и громких вывесок работают те ювелиры, которые предпочитают создавать произведения на заказ. Джессика Маккормак приехала из Новой Зеландии и стала одним из самых известных ювелиров в Мэйфэр. Славу ей принесли кольца Party Jackets, которые надеваются поверх уже имеющихся колец и преображают их до неузнаваемости. Она окружила себя профессионалами ювелирного искусства и организовала мастерскую в цокольном этаже великолепного особняка на Carlos Place. Вместе они украсили его произведениями искусства и называют просто «домом». Первые два этажа дома занимает салон, где выставлены сезонные коллекции Маккормак. Особого внимания достойна серия Chi Chi, вдохновленная древним китайским гаданием, а также бриллиантовые серьги, браслеты, ожерелья и кольца под общим названием Trip The Light Fantastic, которые двигаются вместе со своим обладателем и создают гипнотическое мерцание. Маккормак также создает украшения по индивидуальному заказу. И они получаются по-настоящему оригинальными, благодаря тесному сотрудничеству с клиентом: «Мне нравится проводить время с покупателями в нашей библиотеке за разговорами и обсуждениями. Мы обсуждаем предпочтения, а заодно я лично знакомлюсь с их стилем, – рассказывает о творческом процессе Маккормак. – Затем я превращаю личную историю в многочисленные эскизы, из которых вырастает финальный дизайн». Творческий процесс всегда индивидуален, как и сами украшения: «С каждым новым покупателем globalblue.ru

отношения строятся по-новому. Некоторым нравится вовлекаться в процесс на каждом этапе, а другие предпочитают дождаться готового украшения. У каждого человека собственный путь», – утверждает она. В противоположной части Лондона, в трендовом Ист-Энде, находится мастерская ювелирного дизайнера Аны де Коста. Она окончила колледж Central Saint Martins в 2005 году и работала с Шон Лином над подиумными коллекциями для Alexander McQueen и с брендом костюмных украшений Erickson Beamon. Затем она открыла собственное ателье: «Авторские украшения и предметы ювелирного искусства в целом – всегда очень эмоциональное и личное приобретение. Поэтому мне особенно нравится проводить

время с покупателями. Мы обсуждаем первоначальные идеи и бюджеты, поскольку это ляжет в основу подбора образов и камней», – объясняет дизайнер. Столь глубокое исследование и умение быстро понять потребности клиентов и делают де Коста особенной. Среди ее недавних произведений – необычное обручальное кольцо для живущего в Лондоне заказчика. Для дизайна она задействовала драгоценные камни с родины будущей невесты – из России. Как и Маккормак, де Коста подстраивает весь творческий процесс от начала и до конца под интересы клиентов. «С первого дня я регулярно выхожу на связь, чтобы держать их в курсе происходящего. Если они желают, я отправляю фотографии творческого процесса. Но многие любят сюрпризы и предпочитают дождаться готового украшения». Сабин Гетти – еще один известный лондонский ювелир. Ее коллекция Baby Memphis выросла из роскошной коллекции Memphis и основывается на новом опыте дизайнера в роли молодой матери. Кольца и браслеты с яркими камнями можно собирать самостоятельно, а серьги и ожерелья легко сочетать – и это дает бесконечный потенциал для создания разнообразных образов. Увидев работы Гетти, даже самые требовательные знатоки обращаются к ней с индивидуальными заказами: «После выхода коллекции я обычно получаю запросы на похожие украшения, но с другими камнями или камнями клиентов». По ее наблюдениям, для создания уникальных вещей «требуется время и внимание»: «Необходимо прислушиваться к тому, чего хочет клиент, чего он пытается добиться. Поэтому мы всегда общаемся в процессе работы, но именно в первую встречу я составляю представление о его желаниях». Больше всего Гетти вдохновляет незабываемый момент, когда заказчик наконец получает столь желанную вещь: «Самое прекрасное – это видеть, как он осознает, что он обладает особенным ювелирным произведением, сделанным исключительно для него».

48: A Cut Above Золотой стежок Великая история улицы Сэвил-Роу помогает ее обитателям уверенно смотреть в будущее, – рассказывает Мария Кирхен-Хилл Сэвил-Роу называют «золотой портновской милей» Лондона: во всем городе нет лучшего места для заказа одежды по индивидуальной мерке. Самые талантливые портные сделали эту улицу олицетворением великолепной одежды – мужской и женской, классической и современной. Первые портные пришли на СэвилРоу в начале 19 века, поскольку здесь же, в Мэйфэре, жили и до сих пор живут стильные и обеспеченные горожане. До наших дней

не сохранилось ни одной первоначальной компании, но все же здесь много салонов с впечатляющей историей. Henry Poole & Co – один из таких: он работает здесь с 1846 года по одному и тому же адресу Savile Row, 15. Основатель компании Генри Пул, давший ей свое имя, работал с 1846 до 1876 и одевал будущего императора Франции Наполеона III, королеву Викторию и Принца Уэльского, который впоследствии стал королем Эдвардом VII. На протяжении трех десятилетий он принимал непосредственное участие в становлении Сэвил-Роу и превращении улицы в рай для ценителей костюмов по индивидуальной мерке. Конечно, сам Пул стал одной из ее самых ярких звезд. К началу 20 века его ателье было одним из самых крупных в мире: в нем работали 300 портных и 14 закройщиков. До сих пор джентльмены из всех частей света устремляются в Лондон, чтобы заказать костюм в Poole. Именно этому ателье приписывается изобретение вечернего пиджака – смокинга. Кроме того, здесь можно заказать утренний или вечерний образ: блейзеры, спортивные куртки, рубашки, пальто, красивые аксессуары к ним и, разумеется, костюмы. Клиенты выбирают из 6000 образцов тканей неизменно высочайшего качества – и команда воплощает любой предмет одежды по вашим конкретным меркам. Henry Poole & Co развивался с течением времени, как и вся улица Сэвил-Роу. За прошедшие годы на ней появились многочисленные модные бренды. Коллекции готовой одежды представили британские бренды Gieves & Hawkes и Hardy Amies в 1970-е, но иностранные марки пришли сюда относительно недавно. Французский модный дом Lanvin открыл на Сэвил-Роу флагманский магазин, где предлагает готовую мужскую одежду, кожгалантерею, роскошные галстуки-бабочки и другие аксессуары, а также услуги пошива костюмов по мерке. Для Lanvin выбор места был очевидным: «Сэвил-Роу – это легенда, – объяснил Альбер Эльбаз, который работал дизайнером марки во время открытия. – На мой взгляд, в Лондоне для нас просто нет

другого места». Того же мнения придерживаются Дин и Дан Катен – братья-близнецы и креативные директора марки Dsquared2: «Флагманский магазин в Лондоне очень важен для нас, поскольку мы живем в городе, под его влиянием и вдохновением. И мы неслучайно выбрали пересечение Сэвил-Роу и Conduit Street. С годами эта улица стала очень важным направлением для стильных мужчин и олицетворением высокого качества, традиций и оригинальности – то есть тех ценностей, которые мы также разделяем». В бутике Dsquared2 представлены все коллекции бренда, в том числе современные костюмы из новых видов шерсти и тянущегося хлопка, а также женская одежда. В последние десятилетия открылись совсем новые магазины, однако в сердце Сэвил-Роу по-прежнему костюм, созданный по индивидуальной мерке. Как объясняет Тесс Харриот, менеджер по развитию бизнеса в 40 Savile Row, качественный костюм притягивает всех – вне зависимости от возраста, профессии. «В 40 Savile Row приходят самые разные покупатели – от модного тинейджера и выпускника университета, который выбирает костюм для первого собеседования, до банкиров, юристов и страховых агентов. У нас также есть посетители, которые всегда мечтали о костюме с Сэвил-Роу – и приобретают его по особому случаю». Это семейное предприятие можно привести в пример исключительного сервиса, характерного для этой улицы: «Мы рады всем, – утверждает Харриот. – 15-летний опыт в этом бизнесе позволяет работать с любыми фигурами, угождать любому вкусу и помогать покупателям с выбором. Мы все – перфекционисты, поэтому ни один костюм не покидает ателье, пока мы не убедимся в его совершенстве, особенно в том, как он сидит. Причем заказчик непосредственного участвует в разработке костюма, и это делает его уникальным». Это и есть формула успеха: стиль вне времени и умение работать с любыми моделями и трендами. Неудивительно, что Сэвил-Роу с легкостью поддерживает свою мировую славу.

52: To The Power Of Two Удвоенная сила

Мир моды изменчив: сегодняшние звезды завтра уже устареют. На этом фоне такие явления, как Вивьен Вествуд, – большая редкость. Она ворвалась на модную сцену в 1971 году и вместе со своим партнером Малкольмом Маклареном предопределила образ эпохи панка. С тех пор, вот уже более четырех десятилетий, без Вествуд невозможно представить британскую моду и культуру. Бренд Vivienne Westwood стал одним из самых крупных в мире, а сама дизайнер – одним из самых влиятельных художников и активистов в современном мире. В 1988 году Вествуд начала преподавать в Венском университете прикладных искусств. Там она и встретила Андреаса Кронталера, изучавшего модный дизайн. Оригинальные модели Кронталера заинтересовали Вествуд, и она пригласила его в Лондон для дальнейшего их развития. В 1989 году его платья-солнце, вдохновленные искусством Возрождения, появились в коллекции Vivienne Westwood. И так началось партнерство, ставшее ключевым для бренда. Вествуд и Кронталер поженились в 1993, и сегодня они остаются партнерами и в работе, и в жизни. Вместе Вествуд и Кронталер делают бренд все сильнее и сильнее. Кронталер связывает это с уравновешенностью и взаимным уважением: «Вивьенн – личность с революционным подходом ко всему, ее образ и стиль легко узнаваемы. Она – панк и ученый, и к моменту нашей встречи она уже состоялась. У меня также есть свой подход, и мы объединили наши ресурсы – интеллектуальные и физические. Нас часто спрашивают, как можно жить и работать вместе постоянно. Мы оба очень толерантны, и это дает силу: мы постоянно учимся». globalblue.ru

Линия Gold Label каждый сезон представляется на Парижской неделе моды. В этот раз она была переименована в Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood, что отчасти связано с этим желанием продемонстрировать совместную работу над брендом. «Постепенно сфера ответственности Андреаса расширяется, и я бы хотела, чтобы это отразилось и на общественном восприятии», – так Вествуд объясняла этот шаг. В то же время новое название подчеркивает, что это плод труда двух творческих личностей: «Я работаю с Вивьен уже более 25 лет, – объясняет Кронталер. – Мы хотели ясно показать линию каждого. Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood: это я. Эта коллекция более авторская». Они оба в какой-то мере включены во все аспекты деятельности бренда, но такое разделение позволяет своеобразию каждого процветать: «Мы всегда работаем по отдельности, поскольку у каждого свой ритм, а потом мы снова встречаемся, – рассказывает Кронталер о творческом процессе. – Я постоянно пробую новое и без конца преображаю и дорабатываю вещи. Я редко бываю доволен полностью, и это сводит Вивьен с ума. Она другая: она достигает чего-то, принимает окончательное решение, а потом основывается на них – она очень последовательна и логична. Я постоянно создаю хаос, прежде чем привести все дела в порядок». Коллекция осень-зима 2017-18 лейбла Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood создана под влиянием австрийской культуры: «В какой-то момент я осознал, что

Вивьен Вествуд с ее панк-роком и политическим активизмом в моде остается культовой фигурой британской культуры уже более 40 лет. Постепенно в центре внимания оказывается ее супруг и партнер по дизайну Андреас Кронталер. Ханна Льюис рассказывает о самой неординарной паре модного мира

воспринимаю себя дизайнером с австрийскими корнями, – комментирует Кронталер. – Мне хотелось проявить свою национальную принадлежность и идентичность. Пейзажи, народ, костюмы – все это мои корни. И мне потребовалось время, чтобы осознать важность моего происхождения». Кроме того, коллекция посвящена Wiener Werkstätte – венскому сообществу художников и мастеров начала 20 века, поэтому в ней появились австрийские народные мотивы: альпийские цветы и силуэты дирндля. äаметны и влияния австрийский живописи (в то числе Густава Климта): они заметны в брызгах ярких красок, смелых принтах и насыщенных цветах. И все это только подчеркивает присущую Vivienne Westwood пышность и избыточность стиля. Представляя основную коллекцию Vivienne Westwood в этом сезоне, Вивьен Вествуд вновь превратила свои работы и показ в повод для высказывания. На этот раз это истории эко-воинов, которые сражаются с климатическими изменениями. Вествуд – заметный активист зеленого движения: в ее компании задействованы переработанные материалы, безопасные для окружающей среды красители и экологичные производственные процессы. Даже раскрой ткани происходит таким образом, чтобы максимально избежать отходов. «Покупайте меньше, выбирайте тщательно, пользуйтесь долго» – вот ее основной девиз. Вествуд – гений переплетения политических заявлений и модных коллекций. Для нее искусство и мода – серьезный плацдарм для различных идей, и она с пылом выступает по серьезным общественным вопросам. Ее отношение к борьбе с климатическими изменениями наиболее ярко отразилось в декоре брюк и топов унисекс, а в других вещах она отдала предпочтение смелым принтам (абстрактным и фотографическим), аппликациям-пэчворк, складкам и золотому ламэ. В одном из впечатляющих образов соединились красное платье, жакет, красные сапоги до колена, красная накидка и вязаная балаклава. Конечно, столь яркое подиумное сочетание призвано сделать важное заявление более заметным, но по отдельности все вещи

Vivienne Westwood, бесспорно, удобны в сочетании. Это две очень разные коллекции, вдохновленные очень разными культурными и общественными явлениями. При этом если сопоставить ключевые образы с каждой стороны, то проявляется их эстетическое единство. Стиль Vivienne Westwood остается одним из самых узнаваемых в мире моды: «Мы идем дальше вместе», – говорит об этом Кронталер. А нам остается только ждать и наблюдать, куда этот путь приведет их в будущем. 82: When You Shop The World, Shop Tax Free Совершая покупки по всему миру, совершайте их с Tax Free Услуги Global Blue Tax Free Shopping позволят вам сэкономить на покупках, совершенных в более чем 300 000 магазинах, расположенных в самых лучших шоппинг районах мира.
