WELCOME MY AUTUMN HIT LIST

“I love these new organic-shaped earrings – not too fussy to wear every day.”

GANNI skirt, $349.

AJE earrings, $175.

Has there ever been a more important time to talk about love? The bushfires that have raged across Australia these past few months have been unfathomable, but the way people have come together to support each other, to raise funds and rebuild our country (and broken hearts) is inspiring – a testament to the power of love. When Oprah’s favourite self-help guru Marianne Williamson entered the US presidential race last year, she became an instant late night talk show punchline. And mostly for good reason. Yet, the core truth of her message – one of healing through love – is one more politicians (and all of us) would be wise to remember as we begin what might not officially be the start of a new decade, but feels like a portentous year nonetheless. The Tumultuous Teens, as we suspect the decade will be called years into the future, saw change coming thick and fast. We’ve been anxious, we’ve been angry. And frankly, we’re all exhausted. Pivoting to coming from a place of love instead of a place of fear almost feels like the only answer we have left. The challenge is how we do that when the world still faces all the same challenges. The answer, I think, is to start small. Be kinder to each other. Be kinder to ourselves. Be especially kind to the earth. Do something good each day. This season at David Jones is dedicated to the L-word. From romantic love (see: the way cover star Barbara Palvin talks about her boyfriend Dylan Sprouse) to self-love, a love for what we do to a love for the planet, we’ll all be better off with a little more of it.

“For that rosy, 10-hour-sleep kind of glow.” CHANEL Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops, $78.

SPEAK VOLUMES

“A printed puff-sleeve mini dress is playful and surprisingly versatile. My new styling trick is wearing a dramatic dress over straight-leg blue jeans, à la Khaite S/S20, for weekend dinners.” – CLAUDIA JUKIC, style editor at JONES CAMILLA AND MARC jacket, $850.

C/MEO COLLECTIVE blazer, $229.

TOP IT OFF

“Start with a sharp-shouldered blazer; strong tailoring is flattering on every body and you can layer a blazer over everything. Go up a size and pair with well-fitted high-waisted trousers for a femme silhouette.” – WYNN HAMLYN, designer at Wynn Hamlyn

BALENCIAGA

PROENZA SCHOULER

TO THE POINT

“Thanks to Balenciaga’s S/S20 it’s easy to see why this look is here to stay. For accessories, add gold hoops, blacked-out glasses and square-toed ankle boots.” – MELANIE JORDAN, buying assistant for international designer at David Jones

PUT IT IN NEUTRAL DAILY GRIND

“You can wear this trend anywhere. I recommend a pointed shoulder for nine-to-five and a puff shoulder and sneaker combo when off the clock.” – EMILY CLARKE, junior buyer for young fashion at David Jones

“To make this trend as flattering as possible, I like to invest in pieces that are tan, cream, khaki and brown, so I can easily mix and match.” – DANNIELLE CARTISANO, fashion editor at JONES DAV I DJON E S .C OM

TONI’S STYLE ESSENTIALS

SCOTCH & SODA jacket, $429.95.

COMMON PROJECTS sneakers, $490. Toni wears his own clothes.

TONI MATICEVSKI The celebrated designer likes to operate under the radar. Here he talks Australian art, concentration hacks and making travel a blissed-out experience. HOW I START MY DAY: I’m up at around 5.30am and I get straight into the shower. There’s no thought to my outfit, as long as I don’t look like I slept in the studio; usually it involves a blazer or a coat. I get up to speed on emails, and get myself and the studio ready for the day before the team arrive at 9am. Quite a few coffees are consumed in this time; instant, pod, cafe – I’m no coffee snob. I try and limit all meetings and appointments to one or two days a week so as not to break my concentration. WHAT KEEPS ME SANE: I’m pretty switched on most of the time. My brain is like wire connectors, constantly in motion and buzzing. I’m currently working on painting and photography side projects for myself. It keeps me stimulated and distracts me from my work when I need it. At present I feel like I’m reaching a balance. My private life is very private and I surround myself with friends who know and understand that I am not always available.

JON E S

SCOTCH & SODA knit, $159.95.

HOW I TRAVEL: I like being anonymous when I travel. My cabin bag is just a few toiletries – I like Sodashi moisturiser and Penhaligon’s lip balm, a change of clothes, a notebook and pens. I collect and have hundreds of perfumes, but for travel Bvlgari do a soft fragrance called Au Thé Blanc that is really fresh and lightens the air in the plane. I mentally prepare myself for jet lag and time my flight with a mix of films and sleep. I can never remember the films I watch ... there must be something in the altitude that makes me forget. WHAT I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW: Australian artists are my latest investment. I love being able to support and nurture local artists and creatives like Andrew Hazewinkel, Julia deVille and photographer Hayley Millar-Baker. And of course [former collaborator] Bill Henson. When I’m not working, I’m usually thinking about things I would like to explore. My brain and imagination are so active, they’re constantly throwing things at me. I just try to keep up with it all.

SJP shoes, $499.

The JONES edit of everything worth knowing this season.

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

Glitter boots, silk points or embellished Mary Janes, Sarah Jessica Parker knows how to put the fun in footwear. We caught up with the actress and designer at an SJP shoe signing at David Jones in Sydney. Sarah Jessica Parker is already planning her next trip to Australia. “I’d love to come back with my children. I’ve been so excited to visit since we first launched [shoe label SJP]”. For this trip, Parker spent face time with her shoppers. “The best part is meeting the customer; any success we have had is in large part due to the relationship we have been able to cultivate with her. She is incredibly important [and] is also part of the design process.” What’s in Parker’s dream shoe? The key things are comfort, quality and festivity. “We want them to feel comfortable but still want to give you a party for your foot,” says Parker. Our pick? The glitter court shoes that add eclectic Carrie charm to any look. DAV I DJON E S .C OM

WHAT TO BUY NEXT Three new brands bring a fresh approach to creative classics.

PARIS GEORGIA Puff sleeves and supersized coats make up this New Zealand label’s DNA, with pieces that work well for day and night. The silk set is high on our wish list.

REJINA PYO

London based, Korean born Pyo is all about feminine pieces with structure. Think big-sleeved blouses and retro-style suiting juxtaposed with sculptural croc-effect handbags.

REJINA PYO top, $649.

HELPING HANDS Luxury house Bally is on the frontline of climate action as the brand sets its sights on cleaning up Mount Everest. Following last year’s climbing season, Bally launched Peak Outlook, its initiative to sponsor a critical clean-up expedition to the summit of Mount Everest. More than two tonnes of waste were removed in the mission led by Dawa Steven Sherpa to help restore the pristine landscape between Everest Base Camp (5380m) and its iconic peak (8848m). “With its Swiss heritage, the mountain lifestyle is core to Bally [and] an integral code in the road map for its future,” says Nicolas Girotto, Bally CEO. “I am proud that Bally’s Peak Outlook initiative is just one element of a larger commitment to sustainability.” This inaugural Everest clean-up expedition marks a long-term commitment by Bally.

ART

SMELL THE FLOWERS

A new gallery in Melbourne is set to offer unique art experiences to delight all the senses. Ever wondered what Van Gogh’s Sunflowers would smell like? Here’s your chance to find out. Slated to open this autumn, Melbourne’s new $15 million gallery, The Lume, is set to shake up the way Australians interact with art. This world-class gallery is the brainchild of Grande Exhibitions, an Australianbased company known for re-imagining the world’s great artworks via multisensory technology. The Lume will eschew

frames in favour of splashing works onto walls and other surfaces with the help of 150 state-of-the-art projectors, and will engage guests through evocative soundtracks, moving imagery and scents. (FYI, Sunflowers is accompanied by the aroma of citrus-spiked lavender, reminiscent of the South of France.) The full Van Gogh experience takes 90 minutes so set aside an afternoon.

The Australians we’re keeping an eye on this year and beyond.

Lee’s words are powerful, personal and tackle subjects within modern Australia that are both challenging and in urgent need of a spotlight. Her critically acclaimed memoir, Eggshell Skull, which won the People’s Choice Award at the 2019 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards, confronts sexual assault and the inner workings of the legal system, and her follow-up book, 2019’s Beauty, discusses unattainable standards of female perfection. Lee is also a regular columnist for national publications The Saturday Paper and The Guardian, placing her at the forefront of contemporary voices in Australia.

The work won her the Judges’ Award at the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, Best New Play at the 2018 UK Theatre Awards and a raft of prestigious literary awards, and she’s toured it the world over. More recently, she’s adapted the Miles Franklin classic, My Brilliant Career, for the stage and written a new play, Wherever She Wanders, about the conflicting voices of feminism and activism in the smartphone age.

LA-based, Brisbane-born Elordi has made a rapid ascension in Hollywood thanks to back-to-back screen hits – the wildly successful 2018 Netflix romcom The Kissing Booth, followed by the grittier HBO series Euphoria where he plays jock Nate Jacobs, who has the weight of the modern world on his shoulders. In different ways, both shine a light on the fast-changing face of teenhood today.

CARLA ZAMPATTI

DESIGNER

t takes guts and gumption to stay at the top of Australian fashion for 55 years. Carla Zampatti would know; she may be the only person who’s ever done it. “It has been an at-times stressful but rewarding journey,” she says. Challenges have included the end of her first marriage. “Deciding I should move on even though I had a nine-month-old son and my husband co-owned my business gave me a taste of how much of a survivor I am.” Then, 20 years later, a foreclosure in the middle of a recession. “I trusted in my ability to find a solution,” she says. Zampatti’s passion for style bloomed early. As a child, her mother took her to visit a dressmaker. “I was already obsessed with fashion magazines. I told her that day, ‘This is what I want to do’.” Two decades later, she’d moved to Sydney and was working on a debut collection. “I was excited then, as now, to produce beautiful designs that allow women to feel confident and glamorous.” She opened her first boutique in Sydney in 1972 followed by three more that year. (There are now more than 30 Carla Zampatti stores and concessions nationwide.) She expanded into swimwear in the 70s, collaborated on sunglasses with Polaroid in the 80s and launched into David Jones in 1990. Over the years, Zampatti has designed perfumes, cars – even Australia Post uniforms. “I am fortunate to have found joy in my work. I love it as much as I did when I began.” Among her honours she counts an Australian Fashion Laureate, an Order of Australia and the Companion of the Order of Australia, the highest honour a citizen can receive. She is on the board of the Australian Multicultural Foundation and the European Australian Business Council, and is devoted to the arts. “Among my greatest achievements is having been a trustee of the Sydney Theatre Company Foundation Trust. I love art and I love to encourage creative talent.”

young Cyan Ta’eed was told by her dad that discovering her passion was the key to a fulfilling career. She just didn’t know what it was. “I studied to be an opera singer throughout my childhood, I wanted to be a fashion designer because my mum was one, and I also wanted to be a chef. I was never 100 per cent certain.” After school she trained as a graphic designer and it wasn’t until much later the now serial entrepreneur realised that what lit her up was problem solving. “That’s been an ongoing theme for me; here is a dilemma, now how can I fix it?” It makes sense that Envato, the online marketplace for web designers that Ta’eed co-founded with her husband Collis, was born from problems they encountered buying and selling digital assets like illustrations. Despite its success (the start-up reported a $57.5 million dividend in 2018), Ta’eed wondered what she could do to better the world. Then she was diagnosed with an aggressive bacterial ulcer on her cornea and had to lie in a dark room for a month. “It brought home to me how fragile life is. I knew I could and should create a social enterprise.” Cue Hey Tiger. Ta’eed’s do-good chocolate brand has quickly built a loyal following around its creative flavours, Instagrammable packaging and mission to make a positive change in the global cocoa industry. “Chocolate is a business with some major ethical imbalances baked into it,” says Ta’eed. There are currently two million kids in child labour on cocoa farms in West Africa, where the average farmer earns less than a dollar a day. “This incredibly profitable industry that brings us so much pleasure is responsible for the livelihoods of millions, and the circumstances of their lives often are not reflective of that success.” Running Hey Tiger means that work is now personally fulfilling. “Some people think being optimistic about the future is naive but I disagree. We’re bombarded with what’s going wrong but there are people trying to make the world better. In a small way, I hope I’ve improved things.”

She was formerly the festival director of Vivid Ideas and founding artistic director of Vivid Creative Sydney. In 2012, The Sydney Morning Herald named Scully as one of the city’s most influential people. She was 31. Scully says the common thread that winds through her diverse job history is a passion for creativity. “I believe it’s both inherently political and a populace’s greatest resource. New ideas can disrupt social inequality.” This ethos is one she fully embodies as Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney, a role she’s held since 2019. “I’m in a position to meet people who are having a transformative impact, whether that’s in designing a city or delivering care for seniors. But what’s most inspiring for me is having the opportunity to amplify individual voices and stories.” Stories are something Scully has been captivated by since childhood. “I would read to other kids at school and I entered writing competitions. But I realise now that openly sharing narratives that felt inclusive is what I was truly enthralled by.” That fervour hasn’t wavered. Scully says diverse stories are crucial to building the solutions we need in the world. “That’s the missing element. It’s not that we don’t have solutions, it’s that we don’t hear about them.

GIRL The loss of a close friendship can hurt just as much as a break-up with a lover. Lisa Patulny explores the real-life pain of lost platonic love. 52

met Jess on my first day at university. She was platinum blonde, blue-eyed and impossibly elegant. All Wheels & Dollbaby, winged liner and obscure French perfume. By contrast, I was mousy-brown, ChapStick-ed and wore the same jeans day in, day out. Among her first words to me were, “You’ve got the look of ‘good friend’ about you.” I was awed by her easy charm and wondered what she liked about me. She was Regina George, but nice, and I was … nobody. We spent months bonding over a shared love for Noel Fielding and expensive trout dip. We’d sit on her balcony for hours, discussing uni, clothes, whatever. We attended music festivals and went out dancing, and our friendship grew. One evening, as we were leaving each other, she tearfully shared a painful secret. It was the kind of thing you might never tell anyone. At that moment, I realised how close we’d become. Yet, for all that intimacy, it didn’t take much for our relationship to implode. Three years in, Jess moved to London. She was no longer nearby, which revealed weaknesses in our communication as a physical separation is wont to do. I went to visit and found a person I no longer recognised. We fought – and then we never spoke again. The break-up wrecked me in a way that losing a lover never had. I was shocked by the sharpness of the heartache. I mourned for us. I think I still do. As relationships expert Megan Luscombe can attest, losing a good friend can be more heartbreaking than letting go of a romantic partner. “We tell ourselves that not having to forfeit sexual intimacy should make parting ways with a friend less painful, but in reality we’re still dealing with many of the same feelings: anger, sadness, loneliness,

“The break-up wrecked me in a way that losing a lover never had. I was shocked by the sharpness of the heartache.”

rejection.” It’s often much more confusing, too. “Where culturally we acknowledge that not all amorous pairings will last forever, there is an expectation that friendships will.” Sex and the City taught us that; while lovers come and go, friends stick by us forever. As Carrie Bradshaw once pondered, “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” Further complicating things is that close friendships most often exist within a much larger network of mutual acquaintances, which can make severing ties difficult for everyone involved. And while there are thousands of songs about break-ups and plenty of books and films that tackle lost romantic love, stories about failed friendships are rare. It seems we don’t have the language to adequately describe the pain the loss of platonic love can cause. Perhaps this is why the kind of sympathy so common in the wake of a break-up is nowhere to be found when we lose a friend – people simply don’t know how to respond.

Thankfully, more realistic depictions of female friendships have begun to enter the conversation. Take 2019’s TV series Dollface, which was written with the intention of being a friendship love story. While Dollface doesn’t focus on a friend break-up per se, it does look at the fulfillment and heartbreak that is part of real-life female friendships. In the show, after breaking up with her boyfriend, main character Jules attempts to win back a group of girlfriends she has ignored for five years in favour of her ex-beau. Instead of focusing on the ex, the storyline explores themes of betrayal, loyalty and forgiveness among her revived friendship group. It leaves out the usual gendered depictions of cool-girl cliques (Clueless), one-friendonly BFFs (Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion) and frenemies (Mean Girls). Luscombe says that depicting female friendships as complex is important because “we don’t usually explore them in this sense; we’re brought up with a mentality of ‘be better than that girl’ as opposed to ‘grow with that girl who is also your ally’.” Seeing realistic friendships on-screen can help us realise that platonic relationships require the same amount of effort to thrive as romantic ones, Luscombe believes. “We grow up thinking friendships don’t need nurturing but that is far from the truth; they demand the same amount of effort as romantic relationships do to flourish.” After Jess and I parted ways, I dealt with my heartache the same way I have done after romantic break-ups: with talking, time and Tim Tams. Eventually, I was liberated by the realisation that, just as with the longterm boyfriend I dated around the same time, our end didn’t erase the importance of what we shared. J DAV I DJON E S .C OM

I’VE BEEN TRAVELLING THE WORLD SINCE I WAS 13

NANUSHKA dress, $649.

... but I was born and raised in Hungary and I miss so much about it: the countryside, fishing with my dad, bike riding with my friends, visiting my grandmother. It’s not always easy, but every time I get a chance to fly home, I do. My family is the best. They are raw and real, honest and genuine people. My parents are still together and they love each other so much. I’ve never questioned that. They taught me to be open and honest in a relationship. Always talk and communicate, that’s the key. I’ve always been a tomboy and liked to be friends with boys a bit more [than girls]. I have a lot of great friends back in Hungary from when I was a kid. Our lifestyles are a bit different, everybody’s busy with life and work, but we always make time to see each other or talk on the phone. It’s important to keep your friendships alive. The year I turned 16 was the game-changer. I booked my first exclusive show for Prada in Milan and everything changed from that moment on. My career started to rise really fast. I almost couldn’t wrap my head around it. I don’t really know what I’ve done to deserve the amazing career that I’ve had so far, but I’m forever grateful. I can see that the world and fashion industry are changing. I’m seeing more curvy girls, different shapes and sizes, different characters, different colours, different ethnicities and different sexualities having their own platforms and making change happen. People are more open and free, and it’s so refreshing. I’m proud of anyone who pushes out of their comfort zone and shows their real self. Self-love, body image and self-acceptance are important. It’s a sensitive topic, not just for me, but for most women and men. I’m constantly working on myself. I work out a lot, I eat healthily, I sleep as much as I can and I’m with my loved ones most of the time. I try hard every day to be the best version of myself, for myself. I try to be positive and happy. But there are times when I’m not feeling my best. When I’m feeling down, I try to remind myself that I have everything that I need in life. I have food to eat, a bed to sleep in, a roof over my head and people who love me. But I also take the time to feel those feelings. I know that it will pass since nothing stays the same. Then I let the bad feelings go so I can start fresh the next day. When I have a day off, I like to wake up a bit later, relax and watch some SpongeBob. I live with my boyfriend [actor/entrepreneur Dylan Sprouse] so when we’re both at home, we like to have breakfast together. I make the food and he makes the coffee, that’s the rule.

I love to take big walks around the city and see my friends if they are in town. In the evenings Dylan and I like to watch movies or animé together, play video games, prepare dinner and just hang out. I hadn’t been in a relationship before Dylan for a very long time. I was really focused on myself and my career. I met a lot of interesting men but nobody had really caught my attention. But there was a time [in 2017] when I felt something was missing in my life; I knew it was time to open up to love. Then I met Dylan in New York at an event. We exchanged numbers but didn’t talk for about six months. After a while, we started talking and just clicked. We have similar senses of humour [and] laugh a lot. Our life can be very public, but when we’re out together we just have to look at each other and we’re good to go. Being in love is a deep feeling and connection that I can’t even describe. I love being in love with Dylan. I love that he makes me feel beautiful and happy, and people notice that. I’m grateful for him and I don’t take our relationship for granted. I’m very much in love, and his love and support for me is just something special. He’s showed me a different side of love. I’m happy. J

Best foot forward How British designer Paul Andrew, the celebrated creative director of Italian luxury label Salvatore Ferragamo, built his career from the ground up.

A

s the son of an upholsterer to Queen Elizabeth II, Paul Andrew grew up around sumptuous textiles and lavish trims. “My father taught me the value of workmanship and the skill of the hand,” says Andrew. “His work made me excited about the possibilities ... and showed me that there is a great nobility in craftsmanship.” It was Andrew’s grandmother who inspired him to unleash the talent that would see the British-born designer become the creative director of Italian luxury house Salvatore Ferragamo. “My grandmother lent me a sewing machine after I started reading fashion magazines and tearing out the pages for inspiration,” says Andrew. Growing up in Berkshire in rural England, he pinned pages from those magazines to his bedroom wall and pored over copies of Vogue Patterns before running up his own designs. As a teenager he began accompanying his father to London, and while Andrew senior visited the Royal Family at Windsor, Andrew junior browsed the rails of Christian Lacroix and other luxury boutiques with his mother. “I would go up to London with my parents and trawl the stores,” he says. “Eventually, with the encouragement and support of my family, I ended up enrolling in fashion school.”

Words by GEORGINA SAFE While other designers at the Berkshire College of Art and Design focused on clothes, Andrew was obsessed with footwear. “It was always shoes for me.” “My father’s craft, upholstery, is to engineer a beautiful structure to support the body, and maybe shoe making is the fashion equivalent of that. I also used to analyse my mother’s shoe collection – she has excellent taste – and travel up to London with her to Harvey Nichols, where I would be strongly drawn to the new season shoes.” His teachers at fashion school encouraged Andrew to explore his passion, leading to the creation of the collection he presented at London Graduate Fashion Week in 1999. It caught the eye of Australian fashion buyer Yasmin Sewell, who purchased the entire Paul Poiret-inspired collection and took Andrew under her wing. “That collection led to my first big break and Yasmin was instrumental,” says Andrew. “She championed me by introducing me to her friends and peer group. She is a fashion force for whom I have immense respect and gratitude.” One of those introductions led to an apprenticeship with style savant Alexander ‘Lee’ McQueen. It was an unpaid job and living in London was expensive so Sewell, who had her own Soho boutique called Yasmin Cho, invited Andrew to

commissioned a study of 500 women from around the world to establish the perfect fit for the contemporary foot. With the results he created a memory-foam pad that is inserted into all of his shoes and now into those he designs for Ferragamo, in line with his mantra of fusing form and function. “My designs are made with two equally important criteria: they have to be comfortable and they have to look great,” says Andrew. “That might sound simplistic, but so often these two key elements are not there when you try on your shoes. My approach is very technical and craft-based in that I love spending time in the factory and refining the manufacturing process to ensure the finished product is a dream to wear, but when I’m sketching I really let my mind play and propose some things that look crazy on paper.” They didn’t look crazy to the Ferragamo family, who appointed Andrew design director of women’s footwear in 2016. In 2017 came a promotion to women’s creative director, then in 2019 he was appointed creative director of the brand, a role that has him overseeing all design responsibilities at the Florence-based house. As one of the leaders of the global luxury industry, Ferragamo’s products include shoes, clothing, accessories, women’s and men’s fragrances, eyewear and watches. Founded in 1927, and with more than 4000 employees and 670 standalone stores today, the Italian powerhouse is focused on blending style and creativity with innovation to ensure the made-in-Italy tradition of craftsmanship remains relevant not only for today’s generation but also the next – and beyond. “Salvatore Ferragamo was the Leonardo da Vinci of 20th century footwear,” says Andrew. “He was from the poorest of backgrounds but never let that define his future or limit his ambitions.” Born in 1898, Salvatore Ferragamo made his first pair of shoes at the age of nine, then began an apprenticeship with a local shoemaker in his village of Bonito before he turned 10. In 1914, Ferragamo emigrated to the US, first Boston then California, and when he founded the Hollywood Boot Shop in 1923, he focused on stars of the screen, including Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn, who all became loyal clients.

“I learned to embrace a spirit of fearlessness, to always interrogate your work ... raise it to the next level.” stay in her home. “Her generosity of spirit set me on my way; Yasmin is the fashion fairy godmother,” says the designer. Working for McQueen allowed Andrew to develop his creativity unhindered by rules bar the pursuit of the extraordinary. “Lee was a whirlwind and an instinctive virtuoso of a designer,” says Andrew. “He was a fashion outsider who remade the rules. Some of the key lessons I learned there were to embrace a spirit of fearlessness, to always interrogate your work and to think of how to raise it to the next level. I also learned how to incorporate heritage and history [into my work], without ever being restricted by it, and these lessons have influenced me throughout my career.” The next stage of that career was a stint in New York with Narciso Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan. While working for McQueen taught Andrew to embrace the avant garde, in America he learned the ropes of the economic side of the business, giving him a solid foundation from which to build his own successful fashion line. “Working in New York taught me about the fine line between fashion artistry and commercial viability,” says Andrew. “I learned the nuts and bolts of merchandising and the mechanics of production and supply lines. Being in New York taught me to work hard, to work fast and to work with total commitment.” In 2012, Andrew launched his own range of finely crafted and vibrant 70s-influenced shoes. “I felt the prevailing winds of taste were shifting and that many companies hadn’t read the weather,” says Andrew. “The market was dominated by heavy platform silhouettes and, with very few exceptions, there was nobody offering delicate, playful, elegant pieces. I saw a niche and I went for it.” From the very start Andrew’s designs united fantasy with practicality, combining luxurious materials and handmade craftsmanship with the latest technologies and rigorous research.

Renowned for his innovation, Ferragamo registered more than 350 patents: he invented the cork wedge and took stilettos to new heights, employing a vibrant palette and luxurious Salvatore Ferragamo S/S20 materials in his pursuit of the perfect marriage of comfort and collection at Milan quality. “He was boundlessly experimental and used Florentine Fashion Week. lace, paper, tree bark, raffia, hemp, fish skin, cellophane and nylon in his designs,” says Andrew. Business was booming so in 1927 he moved his company to Florence where there were trained artisans who could help him keep up with demand. “Salvatore Ferragamo was known as the Shoemaker of Dreams and his clients included not just film stars but contessas,, princesses and the very best dressed women of their day, who travelled from all over the world to be fitted by him,” says Andrew. The result of his efforts is an archive in Florence of some 15,000 vintage pumps, sandals and wedges, from which Andrew draws inspiration each season. “This is our heritage and the springboard from which I try to forward the story of Ferragamo each season,” he says. The oldest shoe in the archive is from 1927 and upholstered in a Cubist-inspired design. Another made in 1966 for an Australian client was cast in gold with the help of a local goldsmith on the Ponte Vecchio. “Each shoe has its own story and every time I discover a new one it inspires me to dream and to create,” says Andrew. While his design remit today spans a wide array become my vocation in the best possible environment, and of categories from ready-to-wear to accessories, have the archive of a genius to inspire me.

BEAUTY

Make-up Last year’s obsession with matte nudes reached fever pitch and now the pendulum has swung again. Nudes still have their place, but for a decidedly autumn 2020 take, try this modern riff on red. It’s got a more serious, deeper tone to it and, applied imperfectly with blurred and feathered outer edges, feels thoroughly now. It’s far less maintenance than polished and perfect colour, and gives the kind of subtle dimension that flatters lips of all degrees of plumpness.

Nails Fresh takes on the French manicure have dotted the runways for the last few seasons, but the one worthy of repeating at home is the micro-French. It gives the clean, finger-lengthening flattery of a skin-toned lacquer, with a perfect dash of fashion edge. Use tape or a very steady hand to add the finest of white lines. Try OPI Nail Lacquer in Alpine Snow. Opposite page: CAMILLA AND MARC knit, $420. MIMCO necklace, $169.

Fragrance After years of same-old scents, fragrances bursting with personality are having their moment in the sun. Unusual edges that have appeared in niche scents for years are going mainstream. Calvin Klein’s latest – the bold, genderless CK Everyone – is a daring blend of orange, green tea and cedarwood. A soupedup version of Juliette Has A Gun’s Not A Perfume is a more potent formula of the original woody, musky eau, and Van Cleef & Arpels’ unisex Santal Blanc is a clever mix of mandarin, fig, sandalwood and musk.

cientist Jose Ginestar started off in pharmaceuticals but the idea of waiting years, even decades, between breakthroughs and new launches frustrated him. He turned to cosmetics instead and, after a career at some of the world’s biggest beauty companies, ended up at French skincare house Sisley where he’s been head of research and development for 10 years. For a researcher, it’s a dream fit. Still privately owned by a family considered to be cosmetics royalty – Sisley founder Hubert d’Ornano’s father Guillaume created Lancôme – the company has the luxury of developing new products not on the schedule of a marketing department but on significant plant-based dermatological discoveries as and when they happen. “We are in contact with researchers all around the world,” says Ginestar. “And when we feel that something has happened that’s really important, we go [and] work with them.” The d’Ornano family tasked Ginestar and his team with using the best possible ingredients and taking the time to create not only the most effective products, but ones that are also luxurious, well-tolerated and beautiful to use. “It’s a very good thing; you have time, you have budget so you have a responsibility to put out a very good product,” he says. “But that also means that if the product is not good, you don’t have a lot of excuses!” No such excuses are necessary with Sisley’s latest breakthrough launch, Phyto-Blanc Le Concentré. The whitening and brightening serum serves as a perfect example of the company’s way of working, stemming as it did from the discoveries of a Japanese research team working on hyperhidrosis (extreme sweating). The scientists had accidentally isolated a dermal protein, DKK1, a natural melanin production inhibitor that’s responsible for the parts of our bodies, like the palms of our hands, that are naturally less pigmented. After six years in the Sisley labs, DKK1 eventually became the hero of Phyto-Blanc Le Concentré. While for many companies a breakthrough like SISLEY Phytothis would be enough, Sisley went a step Blanc Le Concentré further and enhanced its new product 20ml, $520. with multiple methods of inhibiting melanin, fading dark spots and giving skin more radiance and glow, making Phyto-Blanc Le Concentré a veritable skin-brightening super product. “The approach of Sisley is a global one,” says Ginestar. “Every problem – whether that’s anti ageing, hydration or, in this case, whitening – we fight it with all different mechanisms to get the best results.” J

Make Up For Ever’s made-for-screen foundation transforms skin.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation in Ivory Beige 30ml, $67.

In 2008, Make Up For Ever introduced its first high-definition foundation. Created to counteract the harsh effects high-definition film lenses were having on actors’ skin, it launched a completely new category. But as technology continued to advance, Make Up For Ever’s formulators went back to the drawing board. The new challenge? To develop a foundation that’d stand the test under the industry’s super-advanced 4K resolution, which could magnify every line, blemish and patch of discolouration. That’s how the brand’s bestselling Ultra HD Foundation was born. Launched in 2015, it was quickly embraced by make-up lovers en masse, enthralled by its ability to deliver an

airbrushed finish so good it was pretty much imperceptible to the naked eye. Five years on and Ultra HD Foundation (which caters to a huge range of skin tones with 50 hues on the market) remains a go-to for anyone on the hunt for a base that conceals all, while still providing a beautifully natural finish. The genius of the formula lies in the combination of light-reflecting pigments – they help to visually blur imperfections – and adaptive pigments that help the foundation to blend seamlessly with skin. It’s also infused with hyaluronic acid, which boosts moisture and glow with every swipe. Purchase the Ultra HD Foundation at David Jones and receive a bonus Mist & Setting Spray 30ml.* DAV I DJON E S .C OM

THE NEW GUARD Grown Alchemist’s latest range delivers protection against pollution.

It’s not just poor air quality that can speed up the visible signs of ageing. Even the blue light emitting from our beloved tech devices plays a role in issues like pigmentation and fine lines. It makes sense, then, that any solid anti-ageing routine should seek to combat these effects with the right ingredients. Enter Grown Alchemist’s Anti-Pollution Primer and Anti-Pollution Mist. Used together, they help to ward off pollutants and deliver hydration. The innovative Anti-Pollution Shield Complex, a feature of both products, is packed with powerful botanical extracts, including Indian ginseng root, buddleia flower and echinacea, to increase resilience at the cellular level. Designed to form a protective layer over primary skincare, the Anti-Pollution Primer is your first defence against the outside world. The silicone-free formula contains an advanced prebiotic peptide which locks moisture in by preventing damage to the skin barrier. The plantderived Phyto Peptide 1 then targets fine lines and wrinkles by boosting the skin’s ability to regenerate cells. It’s enhanced with a triple-strength hydrating complex, too. Translation? A smoother, plumped-up complexion that’s the perfect base for make-up (the formulation’s subtle blur effect even minimises the look of pores and imperfections). Its partner in protection, the AntiPollution Mist, offers the same potent ingredients in a convenient on-the-go spritz. Each application infuses skin with antioxidants and peptides, neutralising everything from artificial light emissions to poor air quality – keep one in your desk drawer and another in your purse. Together, they promise to safeguard your skin, leaving it brighter and stronger.

There’s a lot to love about winter. Ditch next summer’s tourist trail for an (almost) off-the-grid getaway.

Words by LISA PATULNY and JOHN AGNEW

THE ARRABELLE AT VAIL SQUARE, COLORADO Home to the largest ski field in Colorado, Vail has been making alpine living look good since 1962. The once nameless mountain was owned by the US government until two plucky ski patrollers set out to transform it into the next great American snow spot, complete with a

136

JON E S

Swiss Alps-inspired town. Almost six decades later, palatial hotel The Arrabelle is the jewel in the village’s crown, boasting 62 luxuriously appointed rooms with awe-inspiring views of the surrounding national forest, including 5289 skiable acres on the mountain. Each hotel room is a study in comfort, featuring fireplaces and heated bathroom floors, deep tubs kitted out with luxe bath salts and amenities, supplies for coffee, and hot chocolate and a complimentary dessert platter upon arrival. There’s no better way to do après-ski. Though skiing and snowboarding are the main reasons Vail has become a winter hotspot (with 1.5 million visitors annually, it’s easily the most popular snow destination in North America), outdoorsy types can also get their kicks snowshoeing, skating outdoors in Vail Square, dogsledding or enjoying Rocky Mountain views. More inclined to sip cocoa than schuss down the slopes? While away an afternoon at The Arrabelle’s eco-friendly RockResorts spa. There are plenty of treatments to indulge in, though whichever you choose, the complimentary post-treatment citrus sorbet is the proverbial cherry on top.

EAT

Located at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola ride (a staggering 3127 metres from the ground), Bistro Fourteen is where those in the know park their skis to lunch. The casual restaurant serves up modern American fare (think moreish New England-style lobster rolls and local wild game chili) along with a view so

SKI

If you’re serious about skiing, opt for an (aptly named) Epic Pass. It’ll grant you access to 69 iconic ski resorts worldwide, including Vail, Whistler, Hakubu Valley and Victoria’s own Falls Creek and Hotham. In Vail, avoid waiting in the lift line and ask for help from EMMA, the town’s very own chat bot. Dubbed ‘Siri for skiers’, it provides convenient up-to-the-minute information on weather conditions and lift line wait times.

DRINK

Make your way to Remedy Bar at The Four Seasons Vail for happy hour set against a spectacular panorama. Snuggle up on the balcony next to a fire pit, then order a drink from the prohibition-themed menu (the Peanut Brittle Old Fashioned is a triumph). Another must-try is the award-winning Haute Chocolate dessert made with Swiss chocolate, marshmallow and Chantilly cream, spiked with your choice of Baileys, whiskey or Wondermint. If there’s a better cure for aching muscles after a long day on the slopes, we don’t know it.

THYME, THE COTSWOLDS Set on a working farm in Southrop (best known as the sleepy village in which Kate Moss was married), this family-run retreat is what happens when bucolic English countryside meets top-tier hospitality. Comprised of a ramble of thoughtfully restored buildings, the estate includes a manor, a series of cottages to rent and a 19th-century rectory that’s straight out of a Jane Austen novel. There’s also a swimming pool, tennis court, restaurant, bar and spa on site, and the town’s pub, The Swan, a few steps from the gate. There are 31 rooms and cottages furnished with vintage wallpaper and clawfoot tubs, and some even have four-poster beds.

If you can motivate yourself to venture out, wholesome activities await: boating on the river, a private lesson at Thyme’s Cookery School or a brisk country walk through the gardens. However you spend the day, finish with a visit to the honesty bar which is well stocked with botanicalinfused gins, homemade cordials and a selection of cocktail garnishes.


HOSHINOYA, MT FUJI Looking to discover yourself in Japanese wilderness? Consider the glampinginspired outpost of boutique hotel chain Hoshinoya. Overlooking Mount Fuji and only a short drive or train ride from Tokyo, you’ll choose your own rucksack – complete with torch, reusable canteen and binoculars – upon arrival at base camp, which is neatly tucked along the shores of Lake Kawaguchi. Next, you’re whisked away by luxury Jeep into the alpine tree-lined canopy where the main resort is designed to complement, not compete with, the surrounding terrain. Spend your

140

JON E S

days exploring the landscape, feasting on fresh, local and seasonal fare. Staying in spring? Expect sakura, or cherry blossom, on the menu. Got a taste for something meatier? One of the local mountain hunters might have sent down the meat from a wild boar, which the Hoshinoya team then whip up into a mouth-watering ragu. And to really test your mettle? Horse tartare. Experience the Japanese-perfected art of camping through the on-site ‘glamping experts’. They’ll teach you how to kayak, chop wood and even smoke your own wild trout for brunch. For those who prefer to keep things glamorous, kick back among the trees on the aptly-named Cloud Terrace, sipping on Japanese whisky and soaking up the vibe. When you’ve had your camping fill, retreat to your one of 40 designer rooms (a far cry from a fourperson tent), complete with outdoor fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows that command your gaze towards the monolithic mountain in the distance.
