From Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen, published by powerHouse Books.

Advanced Style Inspired by his grandmother’s wisdom and grace, photographer Ari Seth Cohen began taking pictures of well-dressed retirees on the streets of New York five years ago. Now his blog Advanced Style has expanded into a book and a soon-to-be film, in a celebration of those who are old enough to know best. Cohen’s over-50s subjects include exartists and performers, stalwarts of the New York fashion set and everyday people on the street. There’s limited cosmetic enhancement here – these women are fabulous because they know how to dress themselves. Wrinkles are adorned and adored.

ed Style Advanc h Cohen Set by Ari ugh ow thro ks. n o is out o B e s ou powerH

Decades spent dressing informs the vibrant photography and sentimental advice that works as well for fashion as it does for life. “Be more, appear less,” says Rose, aged 100. Outfits range from the downright kooky to those that are steeped in ritual and habits that have never been broken. “Every outfit has to have a hat and earrings,” says 62-year-old Tziporah Salamon, one of the mature stars of Lanvin’s Fall 12 campaign. “I am an artist and these are my paints,” she explains. Throughout Advanced Style, much of the antiquity is in the clothing itself, not the women or the attitudes. Their messages

are of individuality, storytelling through dressing, and respect for wisdom and experienced style. Cohen recently raised more than $50,000 through Kickstarter for his documentary, due out in 2013. In the meantime, consider Advanced Style an instruction manual to the art form of growing old with grace.

Industrial Revolution Joe at Industrial Revolution has taken care of the dirty work when it comes to sourcing and sprucing up vintage industrial homewares. His shop in Croydon is a haven of curiosities, where old signs, cabinets and drawers sit alongside ventriloquist dolls, lighting fixtures, toys, tins, bottles and more. With decades of service behind them, each item has a story to tell. Every piece is from an era

where things were built to last – and last they do, collecting a few artful bumps and scratches along the way. Old medical models and items sourced from operating theatres add a touch of the grotesque. Shoe lovers will be impressed by the vast collection of wooden shoe forms and even the odd pair of vintage creepers. It’s hard to imagine that half of what Joe has collected was ever made, let alone still exists. His oddities have been lovingly gathered, restored and presented ready for their new life in your home.

Urban Cow From locally-designed jewellery to the coolest printed tees, you can find it all at Adelaide’s number one gift shop, Urban Cow.

2.

Gary Bigeni’s spring/summer collection is a careful lesson in colour and construction. Every piece appears loose and effortless, yet remains composed and structured. Loose and airy knits form slouchy woven sweaters that are perfect for transitional weather, while drop waist dresses and easy shifts hang delicately in silk and wool. All shades of peacock – cerulean, mint and marigold – are on display, but Bigeni still nods to his signatures with black in both leather and floaty georgette, side splits, and tulip skirts that drape just below the knee. Tailored separates pull the collection against raglan sleeves and geometric prints, but together they all arrive in same place.

SNAP HAPPY T

he arrival of Olympus’ new OM-D EM-5 compact DSLR camera has been hard to miss; plastered all over local camera shops, magazines and even bus shelters in the hands of that wet, sultry browneyed hunk. Attitude Magazine decided to take the new camera for a spin, and while not everyone can get around to shooting waterfalls, in urban environments the new Olympus definitely passes muster. Surprisingly small even for today’s hottest compact SLR, its silver and black body shouts out to the original 70s Olympus OM-1 to maintain the look and feel of hip, vintage film photography without worrying about soaring film costs or the know-how necessary to wrangle a big old analogue. Unlike your parents’ Olympus, however, the new kid on the block boasts a built-in five-axis stabiliser that enables you to practically run whilst filming and still capture smooth video footage. Instagram lovers will also find a world of fun with the “ART” option on the control wheel, which offers a selection of instant post-production effects such as ‘pinhole camera’ and the tilt-shifted ‘diorama’ with which to set Flickr and Tumblr alight.

PROFILE. B y N ad i a B a i le y / P H O T O G R A P H E R : N I C O L E C O O P E R

Friggen Awesome! As the Australian editor of online retailer ASOS, Lana Guineay might just have the coolest job in the country. Attitude Magazine finds out how she got there.

T

he first time I met Lana Guineay was at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival – she wore a black Lover dress and 60s ingénue eyeliner; a haze of Chloé perfume surrounded her like a halo. If I sound love-struck it’s because I am – Guineay is someone for whom the phrase “girl crush” must have been coined. Originally from Adelaide, Guineay now heads up editorial for the newly-launched Australian office of ASOS in Sydney; on the way, she’s worked for Sportsgirl in Melbourne, freelanced in London and lived out of a suitcase for 18 months. Here, she shares how she got her break into the industry, the habits every writer should keep and her vision for ASOS Australia. How did you get started down the writing path? There was never an apple-falling-on-head moment. As soon as I could pick up a book, I knew that was it for me – it was very natural to want to write. And that directed my choices from there on, from school, to uni, to my career.

of the most direct lines to emotional, personal, and philosophical insight for me. Which is essential to building a career – to me, a job is an extension of who you are and what you’re all about and how you think about yourself and the world. Adelaide is my hometown – I come back as often as I can. I studied writing and modernist literature in Adelaide and developed my skills. It also gave me a chilled and unpretentious way of viewing the world, I think. My next stop was Melbourne where I was Online Editor for Sportsgirl. I learned how to write fast, to let go of being analytical: you just have to write, edit, and get it out there – there’s no time for overanalysing your own work. London is the love of my life. I’d totally marry London. In career terms, it was vital in the sense that I loved the energy, creativity and possibility of the city. Working there off of my wits proved a lot to myself – there were times when I wondered how I was going to pay the rent – and ultimately it made me more focused and balanced, as well as introducing me to some amazing people professionally.

What was your first big break in the industry? The turning point for me was gaining an internship with Yen magazine. They had a national internship program and I thought “why not?”, even though I was then based in Adelaide and the position was in Sydney. It was there that I discovered magazine publishing combined everything I loved: writing in solitude, creating something with a rad team, meeting loads of creative and interesting people, and being surrounded by amazing fashion. You’ve lived all over – how has that shaped your career? I like to hit the road and try somewhere new every couple of years. Travel is one | 3 2 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |


Sydney has always been more of a pitstop – four weeks here, a weekend there – until recently when I relocated here for my role with ASOS Australia. It has a very different vibe to anywhere else in Australia – so many people at the top of their game are attracted to Sydney. The city has definitely provided me with some amazing career opportunities, from my start at Yen to my job at Pedestrian TV to my current role with ASOS. How did you land the role with Sportsgirl? It’s hard to answer from my point of view, but I did ask the guy who hired me – Chris Wirasinha from Pedestrian TV – about this once. He said that he was impressed with my blog and Twitter presence – that my online name alone (Friggen Awesome) stood out, and that my blog and social writing was exactly what they were looking for. I also think having a bit of personality and colour in your CV and letters is really important, especially in this industry.

Don’t e try to b t perfec tion is – perfec near e nowher ant as rt as impo hance." c a taking

You spent quite some time freelancing between leaving Sportsgirl and landing ASOS. What was that experience like? I spent most of that time in London. I would highly recommend that everyone working in the creative industries should freelance at least once in their lives. I did everything from writing fashion fortune cookies to livetweeting literature festivals. I’d definitely recommend that you have a regular client base and lots of contacts before you do it though. Work is incredibly sporadic and you have to always look towards the next job. What’s your vision for ASOS Australia? I love the UK, and I love UK ASOS: the energy, the boldness, the willingness to try new things. As a company (and as people), ASOS is positive, truly global, embracing change and always looking ahead. Australians love ASOS: we’re the second largest market outside of the UK. I want to bring some of what’s amazing about ASOS in the UK back home, to tap into what we love about it and about global fashion and combine it with what’s awesome and inspiring about Australia – and there’s lots to be inspired by! What’s a typical day in the office for you? Two months into the job and there is no such thing as typical! I could be on a shoot with an amazing blogger, or I could be in front of my computer writing with my headphones in. A lot of thinking about ideas, a lot of talking to the UK (hello, late night Skypes!), writing and blogging and tweeting... From the outside, the industry can seem utterly impenetrable. What advice would you offer to aspiring writers? Anais Nin said this great thing: “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” Take chances even if you think you’re not good enough. Be genuine, in everything. Shake things up every now and then. Don’t try to be perfect – perfection is nowhere near as important as taking a chance. Be brave and trust in what you’re doing – things have this crazy, lucky, unexplainable way of working out when you do. What habits should writers keep? One thing I’ve learned is that every writer is different so follow what works for you. Reading a lot is always good for the soul, brain and inspiration levels. Writing something – anything – at least once a day is a habit that works for me. One last habit: drink coffee. I swear that 89 per cent of any success I have had is coffee-related.

Meadham Kirchhoff

Manicure maven She describes her style as “paint yourself in glue and roll around in a clothes store” and has taken the novelty manicure to the mainstream with cult brand Nail Rock. Meet Zoe Pocock, the woman with a well-manicured finger on the pulse of the nail art craze.

O

n a scale of one to Lana Del Rey, I consider myself to be fairly low maintenance. I keep my skin untanned, my eyebrows natural and my fingernails clipped short. The only manicure I practice regularly is black, because black goes with everything and when it chips, it just looks like you don’t give a fuck. I couldn’t pull off a reverse French or a half moon if I tried. Not Del Rey though, one of the poster girls for the new, Tumblr-fuelled obsession with statement manicures. There’s her elongated Stepford Wives nails painted calamine pink in Vogue Japan; her squared-off red Chevrons in the Born to Die video and, in her recent collaboration with H&M, taupe grey talons that somehow impart all the danger and seduction of a pair of stiletto heels. In fact, her nails are so much part of her mythology that she recently collaborated with nail wrap specialists Nail Rock on a collection inspired by her hometown, Lake Placid – the resulting designs spawning a thousand copycat manicures faster than you can say ‘Instagram’. At the centre of the nail art zeitgeist is Zoe Pocock, a restaurateur-turned-nail-technician who’s made a name for herself dressing the digits of modern muses like Adele and

Paloma Faith. As the Creative Director of Nail Rocks, Pocock has helped take nail art to high fashion via collaborations with Mulberry, Meadham Kirchhoff, and Gretchen Jones, and to the mainstream by way of partnerships with Topshop and ASOS.

So what’s a normal day for the woman who launched a thousand half-moon manicures? “Normal day?” laughs Pocock. “That’s not even in my vocabulary. I can be working on designs in the office or flying to New York or Sydney on a work trip. I’m working on a big film with a huge American star so I’ve been travelling a lot. Right now, I’m in London but very soon I’ll be in New York for fashion week.” While her New York commitments are still coming together (“We’re at the beginning stages – it’s always down to the last minute and even the nail designs have been known to change the night before,” she says), Pocock is happy to divulge the designers she’ll be working with for the London season. “Look out for Vivienne Westwood, Meadham Kirchhoff, Fred Butler and David Coma. We’re also doing great things with Mulberry.” London and New York aren’t the only fashion weeks that Pocock has been involved in. Last year, she came to our | 4 6 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

Everything you need to know about nails this year

Celebrity idols Pocock names Jay-Z’s protégé Rita Ora as one to watch, along with Katy Perry and Rihanna. Joining them on our list: Lana Del Rey, Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung, who’s been known to sport everything from palm trees to polka dots.

Thanks to Ms Del Rey, elongated stiletto nails are key, recalling a glamorous 1950s vibe. But, says Pocock, it’s really about what suits your fingers. “I’m a believer in short, chic and natural-looking nails,” she says. “Thankfully, very square nails are off the radar.”

shores to work with the newly launched Australian arm of ASOS during MercedesBenz Fashion Week Australia – an experience she describes as the best few weeks of her life. “I’ve worked with ASOS for a while now, creating bespoke wraps for their site,” says Pocock. “We wanted to showcase what we could do with nails for MBFWA.” Pocock teamed up with Gary Bigeni, Ellery and Romance Was Born to create a range of limited edition nail wraps that were sold exclusively through the online retailer. And a hot tip: Pocock will be back for the festival’s next iteration, divulging that she’s “currently working on shows for March 2013.”

On the Nail Rock site, designs range from the ridiculous to the sublime – there’s black hearts on a gold background, metallic python print and a rendering of the American flag that seems destined to adorn the fingers for a Texan stripper. It’s all part of Pocock’s “anything goes” philosophy.“I don’t have a specific look,” she says.“One day I’ll channel charity-shop chic and the next I’ll be wearing Alexander McQueen, Westwood and Giles Deacon. Today I made an effort as I have a big client meeting later, so I have Metallic Cheetah on my nails to match my gold dress.” Her style mantra? “Whatever you wear, accessorise!” | 4 7 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

“The new Chanel A/W shades are my favourites,” says Pocock. Look out for Frenzy, a lilac grey; Suspicious, a raspberry red; and Vertigo, a plumtinged brown. Coming into the spring/ summer season in Australia, expect to see the same pastels and neon shades for nails that are dominating fashion.

the pizza DILEMMA It’s an issue that divides families and is niggling tension between close friends, leaving no common ground for fence-sitting: does pineapple belong on pizza? Ten minutes into the demolition of several pizza dishes at Botanic Bar and the contention is already thick in the air. Botanic Bar pizza technician John Muchan is absolute. “No pineapple on pizza,” he says. “I just really like simple pizzas. The flavours get too crowded when there’s too much on it.” The 22-year-old, who has been in the business for three years, says he’d rather make a pizza with “a lot of love.” Meanwhile, Charley, Ella and Kirsty beg to differ, saying it’s anchovies that should cop the hatred. But a mutual love of pizza crust bridges the divide between the two parties. John’s tight red curls divulge his position on the matter, while the girls sing their love of the pizza’s edge. “I could just eat crust,” says Charley. “Where do you think we got these curls from?” Ella adds.

the drink maker

Bartender, Zoran Pavlovic, 24 What makes the perfect cocktail? It takes attention to detail and balanced ingredients; arranging sweet, sour and savoury components to ensure they all work in harmony. What about egg whites, where does that come in? Egg whites are used in cocktails for texture, for instance a whisky sour would not be such an enjoyable drink without the fluffy, creaminess that comes with shaking bourbon, sugar, lemon juice and egg white together. In this industry, do bartenders have bartender idols who they want to be like? I can't speak for all bartenders, but this doesn't so much apply for me. I have people that I look up to and that I think are really important and admirable in the industry but I wouldn't want to replicate them. Would much rather take components of their style of service and demeanour behind the bar and incorporate it in my own.

Would you say it's an art then? Definitely. It's like cooking – the predominant difference is in cooling liquids rather than heating proteins. The concepts of flavour still apply for both professions. And being able to execute a delicious drink with a degree of finesse is what makes it an art. What's your style? I don't know that I can define it in a sentence but it's really very dependent to where I am working and the interaction I have with each different customer. I like to focus on speed, attention to detail, a solid understanding of the ingredients I am working with. Hopefully I have a smile on my face too. If you could bring back some kind of drink that's not really cool anymore what would it be? That's a tricky one. I think the use of high quality and seasonal ingredients are always a good idea to include in drinks. However I think the aperitif is a vastly underutilised beverage, anything that stimulates the palate and opens the appetite is worthwhile in my opinion.

But they’re not leaving her feet. “It’s never acceptable to take off your shoes on a night out. Don’t do it,” she says. “It’s occupational health and safety, you know.” Standing tall in her teal platforms, Kirsty is more lenient: “If it’s the end of the night, I think it’s acceptable, but I will never take my shoes off before 4am.”

Café Troppo

afé Troppo on Whitmore Square is leading the way in sustainable dining. Nestled beneath the fascinating Affordable Eco-Housing project, external herb gardens and temperature-controlling shades lead inside to hanging baskets of fruit, hessiancovered chairs, a wooden counter cut straight from the tree, friendly faces and delicious home-style food. Cakes, dips and more are made inhouse with local and organic produce. The family-run café even has a ‘barter board’ where you can trade your own seasonal herbs by negotiation. Sink your teeth into a warm cinnamon scroll in the morning, or try a kangaroo and fennel sausage roll at lunch. Nothing is hidden or disguised in this small space, with the kitchen open behind the counter. Breads and pastries beckon and gentle chatter from busy staff and patrons filters upwards towards an exposed ceiling decorated simply with an installation of branches.

The best part is that the café is licensed, which means hearty breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas can ease seamlessly into cosy evenings with wine and tapas on Thursday and Friday nights.

MR KIM’S Legend has it, one of the original owners of the ground level at Crippen Place was an elderly Asian man, who went by the nickname "Mr Kim". Honouring his legacy, the venue has been recreated with the aesthetic of a traditional Chinese night spot, but with a cheeky kitsch influence. Think dragons, lions, fountains and lanterns with the addition of a contemporary twist of paste-ups and neon – plus a sound system which has to be heard to be believed. One can enjoy beer on tap and authentic cocktails whilst sitting beneath the glow of a massive tropical fish tank. Opening night will also see the launch of Mr Kim's Records which will run in conjunction with Greenskeeper Records. Expect a tech house/ nu disco vibe to be arousing your senses with resident DJs James Curd, Steven Son and Junior.

Shaolin Afronauts From its early beginnings as part of the Adelaide Festival Centre’s Sessions program to becoming a fully fledged, epic recording project, The Shaolin Afronauts’ sophomore album Quest Under Capricorn proves yet another sonic masterpiece from Adelaide’s leading and most adventurous afro beat maestros.

not only the production but a stage big enough for that many players, so I booked this massive band to do the next record and then kind of set about writing the music from there.”

Later on during a musical mentorship in LA, the sophomore record really began to come into fruition. With recording plans pencilled in, McHenry spent an intensive three weeks under the tutelage of virtuoso composer Miguel AtwoodFerguson in LA learning “what he wanted to say” with Quest Under Capricorn.

“The first record was done really well, but I felt like there was more depth to us that I wanted to expose,” says bass player and composer Ross McHenry. “Sessions came along and there are very few places in Australia where you can play that have

“I was inspired to use a big band after seeing something that Miguel [AtwoodFerguson] worked on called Suite For Ma Dukes, which was a tribute to the late, great J Dilla,” he explains. “I really loved that orchestral magic that he put into instrumental music and I had that in mind when I started writing the arrangements for Quest Under Capricorn. When I was in LA I spent a lot of time talking with him in depth about what we were trying to achieve and what we wanted to say in the record, and it made me a lot more attentive to the kind of

year after the success of their 2011 ARIA-nominated debut Flight of the Ancients, the band was brainstorming new material when the Adelaide Festival Centre came in with a proposal for a series of live performances at the Space Theatre over the summer. The opportunity was apt timing as the band were ready to write their sophomore and wanted to up things a notch, using the invitation to“put together an 18-piece band” and record the album over two days.

emotion I was trying to convey and how I would go about directing the band in order to achieve that.”

“[It was] intense. But it was also a wonderful and very concentrated period,” he muses.“Also, I think analogue is very much a part of the sound of The Shaolin Afronauts, as it puts musicians in a very different mindset about playing because you can’t because you can’t change anything and everything is final, and we’re really about capturing that moment. It might not be 100 per cent perfect, there are mistakes on the record you can listen to if you really want, but having that many people playing together has a vibe that you can only capture by doing it analogue. I really love that, all my favourite Afro funk records were made that way. I don’t see why we’d do it differently.” Over the studio session other tapes were kept rolling too. A 20-minute film documentary was filmed and released in July showing the band in the midst of recording Quest Under Capricorn with McHenry, dressed casually in a baseball cap, composing at the front with stern concentration. McHenry likens the challenge of keeping a whole room of musicians in good spirits as “a school play.” “It’s like a school play where everyone’s been forgetting their lines the whole time but on the night they come together and it’s awesome. That’s sort of what being in a band is like: you’re in it together. It’s a together journey and end of the end of it you’re stronger for it,”he says.“I’m not going to lie and say there weren’t moments where people were shitty and tired after recording for six or seven hours straight, where brass players had sore mouth muscles from playing all day. But everyone had a common goal at the end of the day. I’m very fortunate to play with not only wonderful musicians but wonderful people.” | 6 9 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

The Shaolin Afronauts Quest Under Capricorn is available now through Freestyle Records.

Back on home soil with a newly imbued ambition, McHenry then assembled the band with fly-ins from New Zealand, Melbourne and Sydney and set about madly preparing to record onto 2” analogue tape over a two-day studio session. Read: scary.You don’t have a ‘delete’ button when recording analogue, and getting 18 musicians to play their parts perfectly is near impossible. McHenry agrees that it was of the most “intense sessions” he’d ever done.

What five things do you need to get through recording? 1.

Don’t be afraid to get nasty, no one wants to listen to smooth Afro beat.

2.

Don’t make a mistake. We don’t edit our music so any potential error will most likely be committed to record. This will haunt you forever so just don’t do it.

3.

The ‘Shekere’ is the loudest instrument in the world. It must be isolated or it will get into every microphone and ruin the recording.

4.

Computers are a no-go zone, 2” tape all the way!

5.

Keep your personal hygiene in check. It’s gets hot with 18 dudes throwing down Afro beat, especially when you can’t turn on the air conditioner because it’s too loud in the tracking space!

Flume

B y M i randa F reeman

While most people are making coffees in cafés at his age, 20-year-old electro wunderkind Flume is miles ahead of that. Over the past five months, the ambitious producer and DJ, otherwise known as Sydney kid Harley Streten, has blazed a trail through the music scene as something of an electronic virtuoso, both under his solo moniker and also as one half of lauded DJ duo What So Not.

W

hile his debut EP Sleepless currently sweeps the radio airwaves alongside charting collaborations with Anna Lunoe and Hermitude, Flume is preparing to perform at this year’s Parklife, as well as unveiling his debut album in midNovember. Attitude Magazine caught up with the Future Classic golden child ahead of the release. You’ve had something of a meteoric leap into fame. How does it feel?

It’s pretty nuts. I mean, what, four or five months ago it wasn’t really happening, and now people are kind of like, star struck when I get a photo with them, which is kind of crazy (laughs). It’s definitely going to take a little bit to get used to. Girls throwing themselves at you at gigs can’t be all that bad. It’s great! (laughs)... I actually think I’ve got very female-friendly music. A lot of people have told me there’s been a very good gender ratios at the shows. You’ve said in previous interviews that you prefer producing to DJing due to the fact that the latter can be “just about bringing people down to the venue.” Has the Triple J House Party tour changed your opinion? Not really. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy performing live and I enjoy the attention and what not. But at the end of the day production is my passion. Touring is fun, but for me I’m not like a constant party person. Later down the track I’m keen to get more involved in

more production like writing a score for a film, or TV, or writing songs for computer games. I guess every kind of avenue of music production is something I’m interested in. I know you’re a big fan of Justice. They’ll also be performing at this year’s Parklife, are you going to get your stalk on? I think I’ll just hang out really close to them and breathe down their necks the whole tour. I will devise a strategy because I do want to have a chat with those guys – they’re a pretty huge influence with me, one of the biggest. You’ve shot into the limelight this year with various collaborations with Anna Lunoe and Hermitude and a handful of remixes, including my favourite The Anthem by Onra. What future collaborations can we expect from you? There’s going to be one on the album with Chet Faker, but apart from that I’m not going to give any more away. But there are a fair few vocal collaborations on the album you can expect. If you could pick any artist in the world to collaborate with, who would it be? That’s really tricky. I’d love to write a track with someone like Moby or M83 – that would be insane. And then on the other hand Flying Lotus would also be a massive one.

e I want th e g n e ll cha o of not s hit song riting a much w ing ad mak but inste that suits a ing someth nd that visual. A in a rt e c ifferent d ly plete is a com in.” t to work mindse

It’s kind of nuts that you are just 20 years old. How old were you when you started dabbling with remixing and electronic music? I’d say I was around 10 or 11, but I can’t be sure. It was never an everyday thing when I was that young but I was always mucking around with it. As the years progressed I got more and more hooked you could say. Perhaps that’s why my music sounds sort of professional, because I’ve been doing this for a long time. You recently re-posted on Facebook a remix of your track Tropical Sun by Adelaide DJ Ferris Mular. Have you been paying much attention to Adelaide’s DJ scene since performing here? Yeah, that remix is really good; I was really impressed and it’s had a great response. Oisima is another dude who I met at a show [in Adelaide], and I’ve been checking out his stuff lately. He’s doing some really cool things. | 7 0 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

Real Living At just 30 years old, Ryan Genesin his a booming design practice and a client list that includes Australia’s noblesse oblige. Attitude Magazine sits down to meet the man behind Genesin studio.

I

f you want to see how Australia's elite live, become an interior designer. Ryan Genesin should know – in the course of his nine-year career, he’s worked with over 15 of Australia’s top 100 rich list.“I don’t like to kiss and tell,” he says modestly,“but I will say this – wealth does not always buy good taste. But... that’s why they employ me!” Genesin has been carving a name for himself in the design scene since graduating from the University of South Australia in 2003. Armed with an honours degree in Interior Architecture, Genesin wasted no getting stuck into the competitive field. “I worked for a few months contracted to Hassell in Adelaide as their 3D jockey, then got offered a job in Melbourne with SJB Interiors under the wing of director Andrew Parr,” says Genesin, describing his time with the award-winning designer as eye-opening. “It was my first taste for design projects with serious budgets, highcalibre clients and high exposure.” Genesin’s work quickly got him noticed by design firm Hecker Phelan & Guthrie (now called Hecker Guthrie), and he was poached from SJB to work on a mix of high-profile commercial and hospitality projects like AG Arthur Galan, Saba, The Ivy in Sydney, Bistro Guillaume and Fjall, a Fall’s Creek chalet. After five and a half years in Melbourne, Genesin took the next step in his career: he moved back to Adelaide to launch his eponymous design firm, Genesin Studio. “I want Adelaide to move forward,” says Genesin. “We need to shake off all the backward thinkers and bring in some open-minded people to help create a better future. It’s such a great city with a lot of untapped potential.”

Working in Adelaide also brings some more practical challenges.“Adelaide has a very small furniture, supply and manufacturing community, so not everything is at your fingertips if you are trying new things,” says Genesin, emphasising that developing relationships within these industries is key.“Working closely with local trades is great. If you strike up good relationships then they’re there when you might need to meet a short deadline.” Having his own company has also allowed him to develop his own design style: “My aesthetic is modernist,” he explains. “I approach design with a quality of living reminiscent of the 1960s and 70s, but with today’s luxuries and possibilities at the forefront. Low-tech is best! His Adelaide portfolio now includes a diverse range of projects: the Eden Dining Room & Bar in Glenelg; the newly launched White Rabbit bar on Hindley Street; L.A.X. in David Jones at Adelaide Central Plaza (for which he’s been shortlisted in the Best Retail category in the 2012 Interior Design Excellence | 7 2 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

Awards); The Village Baker in Burnside Village and Blue Chilli Jewellery in Regent Arcade. And there are a number of projects in the pipeline: a new highway Roadhouse in Coober Pedy; refurbishing the Bath Hotel Norwood; and a project with CIBO Espresso that will see them evolve their franchise with a new look cafe opening on Bank Street in the city. With a nomination in the Emerging Designer category of the 2012 IDEA Awards under his belt, Genesin’s future looks bright. We finish with a hypothetical: what would his dream home look like? “That’s easy!” he says.“A hillside, cliff-edge, modernist structure with a fuck-off view, a pool with an entertaining area below surrounded by lush countryside...and no neighbours as far as the eye can see!”

arah Murphy is that person you always hear about – the one who finds collectables for a steal. Sarah, who sells clothing and accessories at the Gilles Street Market, always has her eyes peeled for a bargain “you just hope someone doesn’t know what it is”. Clearly some don’t, as Sarah’s

Her first splurge was a David Bromley kitchen cupboard for a mere $600 fifteen years ago. Umm, wow! This girl sure has a good eye for talent. | 7 4 Att i t u de M a g az i ne |

Street sneakers

W

hen you hear the words “shoe collection” – it’s likely that a certain Carrie Bradshaw and her closet full of Manolo Blahniks spring to mind. Or, that the owner of said collection would be a woman. Not so. Andy Edwards (and that’s Andrew), has been buying souped-up sneakers for eight years. After hitting over 200 pairs, he’s since culled it back to a more manageable 100, but he’s quick to admit there’s always another pair not far away. With a wardrobe full of “mainly Nike and Air Jordans,” you’ll find them sharing shelf space with kicks by Adidas, New Balance, Reebok and Puma. Instead of one day deciding to start a shoe collection, Andy only realised he had one on his hands when “all of a sudden I had two closets full of sneakers”. He counts a certain Nike Air MAG, the model inspired by the shoes Michael J. Fox’s character Marty McFly donned to ride his hoverboard in Back To The Future 2, as his most prized pair. After enlisting the help of some US-based friends, he ended up a winning bidder for one of only 1,500 pairs in the world. “And no,” he’s quick to add to piss-takers “they don’t auto-lace!”

Hunters & Collectors to uncover some of the most random collections around.

C

oins of varying currencies, stamps sent in from far-flung locations and Pokémon cards leftover from schooling days are just some of the things we’ve probably all tried our hand at collecting. But after the folders have long been forgotten (and the elusive search

for Charizard abandoned), certain things still hold appeal – and by the same token, worth knowing something about. That’s why we’ve set out in search of Adelaide’s coolest collections. From a collection comprising of (nearly) every single Beastie Boys vinyl, to one including a vintage Trussardi bicycle, tricked-up kicks and a fledgling collection of prints featuring bearded men, if it’s stuff worth collecting, then it’s stuff worth knowing. Read on, and meet Adelaide’s collectors.

eet Mike. He’s 31, lives in Aberfoyle Park, and is a fan of the Beastie Boys. It’s a penchant that’s turned into a bit of an obsession – because Mike reckons he now owns pretty damn close to all their EPs. “I’ve got just about every single vinyl release the Beastie Boys have bought out since ’83,” he says. Consider the three-piece hooked up only two years

Does he have a favourite? He reckons a rare – and we’re talking one of only 1000 copies in the world, rare – album called Country Mike’s Greatest Hits, recorded all while MC Mike D (an indication of the beginning of the obsession, perhaps?) was suffering memory loss which led him to believe he was a country singer. Mike (Ziersch, that is) has two copies, one of which has remained sealed, and

collections keep theirs safe at home, as something to attend to in spare time, these guys have made theirs a business; with an assortment of not only bikes, but also parts and apparel, available for viewing (and, of course, purchasing) in their CBD shop. But there’s one model that’s not for sale, and that’s a full-sized folding bike by Italian fashion house Trussardi. “Apparently it’s one of 10 imported into Australia – out of only 2,000 produced back in 1981,” says Sam. “A lady saw an article about the shop that mentioned we restored bicycles,” says the self-confessed vintage tourbike fan. “Coincidentally, I was just reading about these Trussardi bikes – that were based on World War II paratroopers – and the woman bought one into the shop. Original condition! I was amazed.”The original in question currently resides at the couple’s home, but if you ever want to see it in the flesh, try your luck at the store, where they’ve been known to have it on display “now and then – or whenever [they] have the space.”

says it’s without doubt “the holy grail album for collectors.” And before you ask – there are indeed others. In fact, most of Mike’s collection has been tracked down with the help of the aptly named beastiemania.com, so if you’re not yet acquainted with the group that’s spawned seven platinum albums, a rare country-themed record and one Adelaide-based fan that can lay claim to owning nearly all their vinyl, then ch-check them out.

During a six-month stay in Copenhagen, Steph discovered an odd wall in her favourite café; one covered entirely by framed pictures of a bearded fisherman smoking an old-fashioned pipe. After finding a tapestry back in Adelaide of the very same character, the fascination took over and the want for a collection began. She’s now got a small stash of her very own “pipe-smoking seafaring men”, and although Steph’s collection isn’t a big one, she swears that she’s on the eternal hunt for this guy (and his sea-mates). “It’s my dream to have a wall just like the Danish café in my house one day,” she says. And if her story is anything like the rest of the collectors, she may end up with a bit more than a wall. A space to watch, indeed.
