I drove past Fountain Gate shopping centre in Narre Warren on the day, in 2006, that Krispy Kreme doughnuts – the cult US sweet – opened in Melbourne. The hungry, hustling crowd was so large, it was clogging (like an artery after eating one of their glazed treats) the carpark. When an overseas brand launches here, we rush to it. But the reverse is also true; there are brilliant businesses with humble Melbourne origins that are exciting and delighting customers on the world stage.

MELBOURNE BRANDS THAT LEARNT HOW TO GO INTERNATIONAL

LOCAL GOES GLOBAL

That’s exactly how Anthony McDonough felt 20 years ago. But now, after ditching corporate life, coming out to his ex-wife and daughter and meeting the new love of his life, the 50-year-old can finally say, well, “I’ve done it.” Together with his new partner in life and business, ex-finance broker Chris Gletbasas, 38, McDonough founded Liquid Skin Care (Lqd), a Melbourne-made skincare brand that has been notching up significant successes in the multibillion-dollar global men’s grooming market. Launched online at the Sydney Mardi Gras in 2012, Lqd now boasts big-name stockists, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols in the UK, Bloomingdale’s in the US and, recently, enjoyed a stint as the official skincare sponsor of London Men’s Fashion Week. “Only a year ago, just before we launched into the US, we only had five people working in the business. We now have 55 working either full- or part-time,” says McDonough. There is much more to the story of their success, of course. The tale includes a near-death experience (Gletbasas battled meningitis septicaemia while in London), coming out to an extended Greek family on Christmas Day (Gletbasas again) and weeks of toiling in the laboratory perfecting recipes for lotions and potions designed to be non-irritating and restorative for skin (that’s McDonough, who trained in organic chemistry at university). But Lqd is not the only Melbourne brand enjoying overseas success. Take clothing giant, the Cotton On Group. (OK, they were founded in Geelong, but then again, we’re told pavlovas were invented in New Zealand.) At last count Cotton On had more than 1400 clothing stores across 18 countries. Melbourne designer Lucy Folk has kept overseas sales for her distinctive jewellery turning over with sightings on celebrities including Snoop Dogg, Beyonce and Elle

Fanning, not to mention receiving “standout” praise in The New York Times. And, in hospitality, Melbourne coffee roaster Nolan Hirte has successfully exported his Collingwood cafe Proud Mary to Portland, Oregon, last year with plans under way to open a second in Austin, Texas, soon. And then there’s competitive swimmer-turnedswimwear mogul Duncan McLean. He built his chlorine-resistant men’s label, Funky Trunks, from a Prahran son-and-mother operation in 2002 to one that employs 20, with 35 sales agents spread across the globe. Today about half of total sales are to Europe. Since 2008 when the company (known as Way Funky, which also comprises women’s label Funkita) turned over an annual $1 million, it has been growing at between 20 and 35 per cent per year, he says. “We’re sending six containers of swimwear to Europe every year now [compared to 2008 when] it would have been down to Australia Post sending a couple of boxes.”

t’s summer. You’re mooching around the pool, taking your annual break from working for The Man. Suddenly, an idea for starting your own business shimmers into focus. It’s exciting. A high-quality skincare range for men with sensitive skin. You imagine yourself shaking off the corporate shackles. Now you call the shots. But almost as quickly as the vision appears, it’s gone again. Everyday life takes over and you’re back at dreary old work-schmerk.

“There’s a real buzz and a different vibe you get from people in Melbourne.” - DUNCAN MCLEAN

What makes a local brand go global? McLean says big ideas are great but it’s important to have a manageable strategy and to be patient with the process because it takes time. He had no formal mentors along the way but spoke highly of government resources, such as Austrade’s Export Market Development Grant, which can provide emerging export companies up to $150,000 a year for eight years to help them break into global markets. “I know it’s a cliche but there’s a lot of creativity in Melbourne. The designers and the marketing and sales teams you can develop here [are great]. There’s a real buzz and a different vibe you get from people in Melbourne.”

B

ack at Lqd’s headquarters, McDonough argues a key to their overseas success was establishing a solid local base first. “Overseas is really expensive, so you really want to have your processes already developed locally, so you know what you’re doing and you have a solid base to build on.” The couple uses four content manufacturers in Melbourne, which is important for quality ingredients and monitoring. McDonough says a key moment came when the brand was first courted by Bloomingdale’s. Instead, they chose to launch through Australian outlet Sephora, which gave them a chance to find their feet locally before taking the global plunge. “It’s all the simple things – well, you think they’re simple until you start to do them – like logistics, planning, distribution and in-store training. You need all those systems put in place before you expand and the best place to do that is where you can be very much hands-on,” he says. As well as a business journey the couple has been on an emotional journey, too. Each has had to grapple with the process of coming out to their friends and family, later in life. McDonough, who has a 13-year-old daughter, Grace, with his ex-wife, Jane, says he is lucky because both families have been welcoming and supportive. By way of illustration, early in their relationship Gletbasas invited his new boyfriend, Jane and Grace to Christmas lunch with his extended family as a way to announce his coming out. “Picture My Big Fat Greek Wedding and you’ve got my family,” says Gletbasas. “We live in one street and my mum lives in the next street in South Yarra and my sister’s just around the corner.” It was a great success. Today, the pair has big plans for the future, including expansion into China (once that country stops testing cosmetics on animals, says McDonough) and a new push into hair-care products and supplements that promote wellbeing. As Gletbasas says: “2018 is so exciting for us”. ● WO R D S ● PE T E R BA R R E T T PI C T U R E ● CA R M E N Z A M M IT

● leehofook.com.au

Victor Liong’s “New-style Chinese” restaurant, Lee Ho Fook, has always had a strong wine and food-matching game. The two-page wine list has plenty of oldand new-world labels up to the challenge of negotiating – and enhancing – the hot and numbing flavours that punctuate Liong’s menu. But Lee Ho Fook’s drinks list also has a tight collection of food-friendly, thirstquenching cocktails that are worth checking out. One that warrants particular attention is the Escubac Highball that, with its herb, citrus and spice notes, is a natural friend and ally of many Asian flavours. Escubac is the ancestor of a style of liquor that originated in Tudor England and then seemed to disappear for a century or two. A couple of years ago, the distillers behind London-based Sweetdram decided to resurrect the drink, as an alternative to the tsunami of artisan gin. Escubac, a relative of gin, is flavoured with 14 botanicals and is excellent mixed with tonic. What is striking about Escubac is its distinct herbal quality tempered by a black pepper and distinct caraway savouriness, and a restrained sweetness. At Lee Ho Fook they team Escubac with Fever Tree ginger ale in a highball glass with lots of ice and a fresh lime garnish. Drink it by itself on a hot day but even happier if you team with the dishes at Lee Ho Fook. ●

MYKE BARTLETT MEETS AN ENDURING HOLLYWOOD STAR

J

essica Chastain is in a good place. To be exact, she’s in Sydney, in the eye of a publicity tornado for acclaimed new film Molly’s Game. The Hollywood actor has built a reputation on playing difficult women, but in person she is warm, attentive and almost radioactively charming. She’s living proof that success and superstardom needn’t turn you into a prat. This is just as well, as Chastain has a zerotolerance policy in that area. “Many times over the last few years I’ve thought, you know, there are so many talented people in this world who aren’t jerks,” she says. “No one should ever have to work with jerks.” Little wonder, perhaps, that disgraced studio mogul Harvey Weinstein once claimed he’d rather go three rounds with Muhammad Ali than get into the ring with Chastain. Today we’re talking about Molly Bloom, the fascinating real-life character at the heart of Molly’s Game. Forced to abandon Olympic ski-jumping after a horrific accident, Bloom moves to Los Angeles where she ends up running underground poker games for billionaires, rock stars and actors. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin of West Wing fame, the film breathlessly covers similar territory to The Wolf of Wall Street, with one notable difference. Where Wolf and its protagonist celebrated ruthless bad behaviour, Bloom excels in her corrupt world without sacrificing her basic decency. Yes, she’s a criminal and drug addict, but Chastain has nothing but praise. “I think she’s incredible because she’s an authentic portrayal of a woman. Many times we see male protagonists in films who are f lawed and make mistakes, but they’re still heroes. Rarely are women afforded that opportunity.” As a jury member at last year’s Cannes, Chastain made headlines after criticising the depiction of women in the programmed films. “A lot of people will say the characters I play are a bit unlikeable. I take great offence to that.

For me, it’s wonderful to play a character who makes a lot of mistakes. She keeps falling down but she keeps getting back up.” When it comes to resilience, it isn’t difficult to draw a line between Molly Bloom to the actor playing her. Success as an actor came fast but late to Chastain. She started performing aged nine and trained at the prestigious Juilliard, but didn’t break through into film until her mid-30s. Since then she’s made 25 features, won Oscar nominations and a Golden Globe, and has established her own production company dedicated to improving diversity on Hollywood screens. Although, like Bloom, she spent a long stretch unemployed in LA, Chastain says she can’t imagine going down a similar wormhole. Bloom was happy to change everything to fit into her world.

But despite working in an industry built on makebelieve, Chastain has always had a talent for being herself. “I was getting advice on how to change my appearance – I should dye my hair blonde, all these things – and I just stuck with me.” ● MOLLY’S GAME \ in cinemas nationally

SARAH M C LEOD

Based on the work of ’90s punk icons Green Day, the hottest new Broadway import seems an even less likely musical than The Book of Mormon. Superjesus singer Sarah McLeod is one of three Aussie rockers cast in American Idiot. How would you describe the show? It’s bloody entertaining and full of hits. It’s a very energetic, confronting show, a powder keg of energy from the minute it begins to the minute it ends, with no interval. The story is about three best friends who move together from the suburbs to the city and how their lives change so dramatically.

You haven’t performed in a musical before. Were you anxious? Nah. I’ve always wanted to do something like this. I have this theory that you just say yes to everything and worry later about how you’re going to do it. It could ruin me, but I’m going to go for it with reckless abandon! ●

FOOD

Bar Tini Unless you’ve been kissing your Valentine for a while, be careful what you order at Bar Tini. Opened in Hosier Lane by the MoVida group last December, this Spanish bodega makes no apologies for big flavours. Take the seafood platter: with smoked and cured salmon, anchovies, smoked tuna and pickled sardines, it’s a treat but will make your dentist faint the second you say “ahh”. Valentines can keep it casual at the Spanish-tiled wooden bar, or watch tourists posing for graffiti selfies from the dining area. Sharing canned food doesn’t sound romantic, but substitute mental images of John West tuna for Cuca stuffed baby calamari – there’s something sensual about the slippery little suckers. Couples who don’t like sharing should try bite-sized prawn and Avruga caviar tostadas. Don’t leave without ordering sobrassada, more a meaty slab than pork sausage. Still want a Bar Tini date? In my experience The One doesn’t ask where you’ve been, they ask what on earth you ate with so much garlic in it.

FEATURE HOUSE ELWOOD \ 10 KINGSLEY STREET 4

f you love hosting summer pool parties or evening dinners for your friends and family, you won’t want for entertainment space at this spectacular four-bedroom house in Elwood. In fact, everyone will be clamouring to spend time at your place. The 675-square-metre floor plan has the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel, including a theatre room, gym, sauna, wine cellar, swimming pool and spa. It’s also walking distance to the beach, Elsternwick Park and the cafes and restaurants on Ormond Road. Your weekends will look like most people’s holidays – a dip in the ocean, followed by a leisurely brunch and, later, a cheeky afternoon drink by the pool. The house, which was built in 2010 and designed by architect Patrick Cristian Gheorghiu, has three levels. The main living space on the ground floor includes an ultraswanky kitchen, which has Corian benchtops and beautiful timber cabinetry. Integrated appliances (two Liebherr fridges, a Miele coffee machine, Miele induction cooktop and Miele dishwasher) give the kitchen a sleek and streamlined feel. The kitchen flows into a formal dining room on one side and a living room on the other. Both rooms open to the deck, which has a built-in grill and sink, so you can cook outside while looking out onto the pool. A study and powder room complete the ground floor, but there’s even more entertainment space in the basement. That’s where you’ll find the wine cellar, a fully equipped gym and a sauna. On rainy days, gather the family for a film in the theatre room. All four bedrooms are on the top floor. On one side is the spacious main bedroom – a relaxing retreat with a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The second largest bedroom, which has an en suite and private balcony, is ideal for guests. The house looks beautiful, but its state-of-the-art features bring it to another level. The whole house is powered by a C-Bus home automation system, which means residents can control blinds, door entry, lighting, security sensors and more via smartphone, tablet or fixed monitors. It also has an intercom, surround sound, in-floor heating and solar electricity. ● KATE STANTON property@domain.com.au

Seven doors from the bay, this elegant manor will make a sociable family very happy. Distinct living, dining and family areas, a pool, a poolside retreat and a deep, tree-laden garden offer beautiful places to play, and the secluded northerly aspect seems to invite leisurely swims all year round. The two-storey house looks crisp and fresh in plantation shutters, polished hardwood and parquetry. The front office has its own entrance. Culture vultures will enjoy the family room, where custom-made cabinetry allows books and electronica to pile high. The central “hostess” kitchen opens into the dining and family rooms. There’s a kitchenette in the poolside retreat, plus an outdoor bathroom and, via the main house, a sauna. All four bedrooms are upstairs, the main with an en suite, and the petite fourth bedroom opens to the curvy balcony over the porch. There’s a single carport plus off-street parking. Kids will appreciate the quick trot to Beaumaris College, as will dogs to Mentone beach. ● ALISON BARCLAY AGENT \ McGrath 8080 1588 PRICE \ $2.85 million PRIVATE SALE Scan the code Just doors away from the bay, and there’s a backyard pool

This house deserves a new word in its honour: Epicentral! Who could deny the geographic glory of “one minute to the beach, the tram, Acland Street, Luna Park ...”? Add the benefits of a quiet street and a north-facing garden and this paradoxical beauty is complete. The single-level Victorian has living and dining areas and three double bedrooms, with timber flooring and high ceilings for breezy cool. The white kitchen has stone benchtops and stainless steel appliances. The third bedroom has arguably the best spot, close to the bathroom/laundry and to the garden door. The tropical-style garden has a deck and covered patio. ● ALISON BARCLAY

Rugged brick, free-flowing floorplans and glass walls opening to shady patios – that was the signature style of mid-century architect Alistair Knox.
