glasses in the front row. Not since Jenny Kee plastered a koala across the pregnant belly of Princess Diana have Australian designers been so visible on the world stage. Look, there’s Taylor Swift in Bec & Bridge, the famous Kates – Beckinsale and Middleton – in Zimmermann, Sarah Jessica Parker in Tome, Beyonce in Camilla, and Lady Gaga head to toe in Nixi Killick for a world tour. But our fashion evolution – captured in the NGV’s brilliant 200 Years of Australian Fashion – begs the question: is there an Aussie aesthetic, a distinct cooee that distinguishes us from the rest of the world? The Mother of the Mini, Prue Acton, believes we have a particular affinity for graphics and boldness of colour, while the Princess of Punk, Jenny Bannister, cites a willingness to break the rules. Joe Saba, the man who taught us how to wear black, believes our relaxed Aussie lifestyle is a factor. All these elements are part of the warp and weft of our unique fabric, but it doesn’t really explain why Australian designers are having more than a moment. Mario-Luca Carlucci, one half of the wonderful Melbourne label Strateas.Carlucci, believes the answer lies in the fact that our designers are coming into their own as individuals. “The beauty of the now is that there is not an Australian aesthetic as such.

If you look at all the Australian designers making a name for themselves now, they are all so very different,” he says. “But there is definitely a connectivity between designers that I would describe as an Australian way of doing things. That might be because of our culture and the fact our way of life here is so much different from what it is like to live in Paris or New York. A lot of our designers are willing to make the jump beyond our own shores to take a risk in terms of opening up their markets and sales.” Maybe that’s the spirit of Elizabeth Thackery – still leaping eagerly ashore in foreign ports, only now at the helm of a sexy little yacht, in a Toni Maticevski gown. ● email@example.com

istory does not tell us what Elizabeth Thackery – reputedly the first white woman to set foot on Australian soil – was wearing when she jumped excitedly from a longboat and ran ashore at Botany Bay. But as a convict transported with little more than the clothes she stood up in, we can pretty safely assume her garb was threadbare, shapeless and more than a little rank. The colony’s fashion story was not off to a promising start, with concern being more about a cat o’ nine tails than catwalks. For more than 170 years we would remain the Western world’s wallflower, wearing big sister’s last-season hand-me-downs – always more Little Dorrit than Dior. Not any more. As the city prepares to strut her stuff for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, it’s never been clearer Australian designers have freed themselves of the tyranny of distance and the muttering of “it’s terribly derivative, dahling” from behind the dark

Now At last Australian designers are free from the tyranny of distance as we take it up to the world. DION LEE is one of a growing list of global fashion wonders from Down Under, including KYM ELLERY, NIXI KILLICK, TONI MATICEVSKI, and the internationally lauded STRATEAS.CARLUCCI collaboration of PETER STRATEAS and MARIO-LUCA CARLUCCI. “With all the social-media platforms, it is definitely easier to communicate with a global audience,” says Mario-Luca. “The whole idea of the tyranny of distance – those barriers are being broken down more and more each day. “Advances in technology mean you don’t have to order thousands of metres of fabrics and the market has opened up a lot more to new and emerging designers, but the competition is a lot higher and stronger. “There are so many talented designers out there now and it is about cutting through all that and being able to say, ‘This is who we are’, and being able to shine.” ●

Ask the wine guy I love good pinot noir but am Q always disappointed by cheaper bottles. Can I really buy a good pinot for under $40?
GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \
There’s a stalky perfume to this wine that I think is a treat. Behind lie cherry, plum, raspberry and spice aromas. It’s complex, elegant and edgy, but at the same time bright and breezy with savoury cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavours. A little bit out-there, very much hip and absolutely delicious. ●

You absolutely can. People tend to have distinct stylistic preferences with pinot. If it’s a bigger style you like, say from Central Otago where you won’t often see change from $40, an elegant bottle from a top Victorian winery might never float your boat. When it comes to the best pinot in Burgundy, the saying goes “producer, producer, producer”. It rings true in Australia, with many second or third labels from the best producers providing great value. Here’s some Yarra Valley gems selling for about $20. ●

DCB Wine Pinot Noir 2015 (Yarra Valley) $20; 13.1% DCB, I believe, stands for Domain Chris Bendle. He is also a winemaker at Hoddles Creek Estate. Layered aromas of strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry and subtle spice smell great. It’s seductively smooth and starts with a burst of vibrant berry and cherry flavours, which become savoury and fan out along the tongue. ● Enjoy with \ Peking duck
Yering Station Little Yering Pinot Noir 2015 (Yarra Valley) $18; 13.5% The year 2015 has been touted as a vintage to watch in the Yarra Valley – conditions were mild, even and perfect for ripening grapes. This wine has complexity and texture that many producers would love to have in their wines: a smoky, dark-cherry and strawberry perfume. Great value means I’m happy to forgive its slightly limited length. ● Enjoy with \ Pork rillettes
BARGAIN BUY Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir 2014 (Yarra Valley) $19.99; 13.2% As always, Hoddles Creek Estate pinot represents one of the great yearly wine bargains. Smelling like a fistful of squished berries along with earth and spice, it’s layered and complex. It is smooth and bursting with elegant flavours.

THIS WEEK I’M …
THE CROWD D \ The sushi bar is packed with a hip young crowd. The barbecue area is more upscale.
EATING \ Ramen. Holy moly! Where have you been all my life, ramen? Equal parts chicken soup for the soul and starving uni student’s two-minute noodles, this slurpy brew is so hot right now and popping up everywhere. I’m still on the lookout for Melbourne’s best, so I’ll keep you posted. (and if you know where it is, tag me!) ●
THE FOOD \ The sushi train chugs along at $3.30 a plate. Otherwise, head out the back for a Japanese barbecue banquet. All seafood comes fresh from Australian waters, and the chicken is free-range and chemical free. Throw your meat, veg or seafood on the barbecue plate, and dip into salt and pepper, sweet soy, or chilli.

here’s an element of spectacle at Mammoth, where the bright space and tiered seating encourage people-watching and brunch envy. Chef Emma Jeffrey (who honed her skills at Fitzroy’s Hammer & Tong) takes risks, packs dishes with flavour and texture, and provides a menu that offers something for everyone. We found ourselves on a share table the first time around, which normally means hushed conversation and tucked elbows. Instead, Skinny Latte opposite us noticed me eyeing off his green chilli chicken between bites of strawberry salad and offered me a forkful. Suddenly, the term “share table” became entirely literal. I’m so glad, because our three dishes turned into seven – which was a great way to chip away at the prolific menu. Return trips yielded the welcome discovery of new additions: twice-cooked aromatic lamb ribs via butcher Peter Bouchier, a refreshed doughnut burger (now with crunchy chicken katsu) and duck breast Benedict with wholemeal crumpets, accompanied by the most un-boring veloute-y hollandaise, crispy sage, pickled shallots and bacon … winner! You can expect to wait 20-30 minutes for a table at weekends. ●
THE DRINK \ Japanese beers on tap, wine and inventive cocktails. Try the stunning Shinto Sour.

COOKING \ Mango sorbet. I use the term “cooking” very loosely here. As tropical fruit season winds down, it’s time to stock up on squashy over-ripe mango, pineapple and kiwi fruit, freeze it down in batches and whiz it up in a powerful blender for the simplest, scrummiest sorbet you could ever ask for. ● WATCHING \ Cooked (Netflix, 2016) I properly inhaled Michael Pollan’s book of the same name when it came out in 2013, full of vivid imagery, fascinating characters and thought-provoking ideas … I couldn’t put it down. Luckily for us, Netflix lets you binge-watch to your heart’s content, with all four parts watchable and digestible. Just make sure you cook dinner first. ● GOING TO O \ The Bank of Melbourne World’s Longest Lunch. Grand prix circuit, Guy Grossi, great company.

When I arrived in Australia a couple of years later and saw the film was banned here, I was gobsmacked.” Happily, he thinks Australian audiences are, these days, far more open to foreign films, even if it does mean having to read subtitles. This year’s program contains an impressive 42 new titles and a restored version of Godard’s 1963 classic Contempt. Asked for a personal highlight, David selects Taj Mahal, a drama in which a French family are caught up in a terrorist attack on a hotel. It’s a film that has gained a particular, topical resonance because of the events in Paris last year. “I think it’s a very powerful film. I hope people go and see it in the light of what it’s like being caught up in that sort of situation.” ● email@example.com » The Alliance Francaise French Film Festival, March 2-24, Palace & Kino Cinemas, www.affrenchfilmfestival.org
hese days, there’s no shortage of foreign film fests, but the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival remains the biggest and, for many, the best of the bunch. Festival patron David Stratton (pictured) suggests this enduring success is down to the fact that, unlike most Hollywood fare, French films tend to be seriously unpredictable. “I don’t think there are any boundaries,” David says. “Take a film like Truffaut’s first feature The 400 Blows. Many young men could recognise themselves in that film, because it was so personal to Truffaut, you could sense that honesty. You wouldn’t find that in a Hollywood film at all. It would be rewritten and revised to fit the parameters of Hollywood.” David says he’s had a strong connection to French films since his late teens in London. It was the arrival of the 1960s New Wave, driven by directors such as Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, that cemented his early love of cinema. “It was so different. There was a freedom

GOURMET CINEMA Popcorn is so passe. FEAST Melbourne’s latest outdoor cinema takes a more adventurous approach to film fare. Classic films are paired with a specially prepared menu from one of our city’s hottest restaurants. Wes Anderson’s delightful The Grand Budapest Hotel is complemented by shared dishes of humble origins, courtesy of Epocha; the Coen brothers’ classic The Big Lebowski has a side serve of smokehouse treats from Le Bon Ton, and The European provides a suitably Continental accompaniment to Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris. Chef and The Great Beauty will also screen, with a full range of menus available at each screening. ■ Caulfield Racecourse, March 2-6, $21.95, food options $8-$18. gourmetcinema.com.au BURN THE FLOOR Old-school dance meets cutting-edge choreography as this international ballroom troupe returns to Australia with a new show.

Leonard By William Shatner with David Fisher » $32.99 (Pan Macmillan) panmacmillan.com.au
I’ll confess to not being much of a Star Trek fan, but that didn’t stop me enjoying this affectionate memoir of Leonard Nimoy (he of the pointy ears), written by his on- and off-screen best friend (aka James T. Kirk). While much of the joy comes from the duo’s resonances and contrasts with Spock and Kirk – and the behind-the-scenes gossip, of course – the book works because its central character is fascinating, flawed and ever so enigmatic. ●
MR ROBOT \ RAMI MALEK
Mr Robot \ Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital, March 3 (Universal Sony Home Entertainment) usanetwork.com/mrrobot
Shy and awkward Elliot (Rami Malek) works days as a coder for a cyber security company, but at night he’s a hacktivist, rooting out paedophiles and other wrongdoers from the web. He’s recruited by Mr Robot (Christian Slater) to take on monolithic corporation E-Corp, whose malign influence seems to lie behind most of society’s ills. Mr Robot is gripping, incisive and topical. ● ONLINE \ Win one of 10 copies of Mr Robot: Season One
Elizabeth Rose \ Intra (Inertia) elizabethrose.com.au
The debut from Sydney’s Elizabeth Rose is slick, R&B-infused pop that might just be too clever for commercial radio. This is world-class stuff, but it’s more FKA twigs than Taylor Swift. Standout track Playing With Fire shows off Elizabeth’s gifts for melody and a playful (if cutting) lyric. “You tried to play me like you would your Game Boy,” she sings, warning a wayward boyfriend she’s on to his tricks. ● ONLINE \ Watch Shoulda Coulda Woulda video

Bridge of Spies \ Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital (Fox) bridgeofspies.com
Steven Spielberg’s take on the U-2 crisis of 1960, in which an American spy plane was shot down over Russia, feels like a classic thriller. It borrows heavily from old-school spy films, has a surprisingly gentle pace and conjures a lost world when warfare had rules. Strong performances and a script by the Coen brothers ensure this cosiness doesn’t blunt the edge. ● MB BRIDGE OF SPIES \ TOM HANKS

1.30pm, Thursday @ Collins Street, city “Siesta should be an obligatory part of the day. I can’t go back to the office after this BLT, I need a nap”
K AT K E L S O Cookie has a firmly cemented place as one of Melbourne’s go-to cool bars and Kat Kelso has been along for the ride. She’ has worked at Cookie for the past seven years (two as a bartender, five as venue manager) and decided two years ago to make the move to the city centre. She was originally hesitant to live so close to work but now knows the city like the back of her hand, and the morning walk to work is a breeze. Where do you go for a great coffee? Magic Mountain. Unpretentious and friendly. For the perfect gift? Incu for something a bit classy and MonsterThreads for something fun. For an interesting bottle of wine? Embla. There’s always something new to try.

GIVE IT A GO JANE HONE LETS OUT HER INNER BEAST
The pay-off It’s pretty satisfying when you get the hang of it. There is also a delightfully childlike element to moving like an animal.
ANIM AL FLOW
The promise A 45-minute barefoot workout that uses nothing but body weight and primal movements to achieve greater strength, flexibility, stability and neuromuscular communication. A combination of yoga and Zuu.
14 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ MARCH 3, 2016
Who should do it? Anyone, really. Those who like yoga but want to try something different. Travellers, as it requires no props! The bill Virgin Active memberships start at $26.95 per week (for students) and $30.95 per week (non-students), with an activation fee between $60 and $160 (depending on how much flexibility you need).
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?
The reality I decide to let my hair down for this class (literally) in keeping with the whole barefoot, animalistic vibe. We gather in a circle and our instructor Jason takes us through some stretching, slowly demonstrating the first movements we’ll be doing. There’s a lot of crouching, crabs and positions with names like “Beast”. Some of it I’m familiar with via my yoga practice and some of it gets my muscles shaking. We move on to some “travelling” poses, at times looking like we’re frog-hopping or crawling along the floor (at no point are we instructed to make primal noises, which pleases me). Then we’re shown how to flip from one position into another, and I’m pretty proud of what I believe is a seamless transition from a “crab” to a “scorpion” to a “wild thing”.
The pain factor It’s not kind on your wrists, but Jason explains this is not necessarily a bad thing. Also, I can tell by my struggle to walk down stairs straight afterwards that I’m going to hurt tomorrow.
Definitely. This was just a beginner’s class, and I would love to crawl my way to the advanced level. ● Virgin Active Health Clubs, 567 Collins Street, Melbourne, 9206 9100, and 138 Bourke Street, Melbourne, 9268 5300.

RETAIL THERAPY HOMIE \ MELBOURNE
F I N D U S AT
Ground floor, Melbourne Central. homiestreetstore.com.au facebook.com/HomelessofMelbourne
“Shops like HoMie can provide your essentials, whilst also providing essentials to people who can’t afford to shop and purchase.”
In Melbourne Central, you’ll find one store that stands out from the crowd. At HoMie, three social entrepreneurs are using fashion to create positive change. Who’s behind the counter HoMie is the brainchild of 2016 Young Australian of the Year finalist Robbie Gillies, Marcus Crook and Nick Pearce. The streetwear store had its genesis in the Homeless of Melbourne Facebook page, where the three friends took to the streets to chat with people living rough and share their stories via social media. The project took off, helping to humanise those experiencing homelessness and change public perception. Last year, HoMie, which stands for Homeless of Melbourne Incorporated Enterprise, opened in Melbourne Central, selling on-trend streetwear, while raising funds and awareness. “We love the culture of caring in Melbourne and the ‘conscious consumerism’ movement occurring in our society,” Robbie says. What’s in store: Unisex streetwear with the Homeless of Melbourne monogram. The range includes taples like long-sleeved shirts, tees, hats, beanies, hoodies, track pants and singlets. New designs for women under “the HoMie for Her range” were recently added.
Our pick This black long-sleeved HoMie shirt is a wardrobe staple and will have you covered and looking cool from summer through to winter. $50.
Home help: Marcus Crook, Nick Pearce and Robbie Gilles from HoMie. (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)
Who’s buying Everyday shoppers and people experiencing homelessness are welcome. “We wanted to create a shop where the general public could shop for quality clothing at normal retail prices [and where] we would be able to invite the homeless community to shop for free,” Robbie says. ● ISABELLE LANE
Extremely Rare Blue and Pink Natural Argyle Diamonds Pink diamonds are extremely rare. Rarer still are blue diamonds, which make up less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s diamonds. At Michael Wilson Diamond Jewellers we have always been proud to have access to an exquisite selection of diamonds. Stones that very few would ever have the opportunity of viewing. When the occasion arose to purchase this unique set of natural blue diamonds we could not pass it up. As a result we designed and created this exquisite pink and blue diamond ring set against a sea of over 90 pave set white diamonds.
This piece makes a statement that goes beyond all expectation.

FITZROY \ 15 KENT STREET This stunning warehouse conversion isn’t helping the colonisation of Fitzroy by Camberwell’s downsizers. Architect-designed style, quality fittings and a great location are sure to advance the march of the newly child-free, moneyed-up life-changers. A great use of vertical proportions finds four bedrooms and three bathrooms over four levels (including the rooftop terrace). Well-configured spaces surround a central courtyard void that injects light and creates a great visual connection between the spaces. The void could also house a lift for those future-proofing. The second floor, which is dedicated to living spaces, is the highlight. Polished concrete floors give way to japanned floorboards on this level and add drama to the interiors. A soaring ceiling at the front of the floor allows for a huge wall of glass. This panorama offers views over the old factory rooftops, the dome of the Royal Exhibition Building and the modern cantilever of the museum, capturing the city in a single view. Well-considered sightlines mean the kitchen also gets the view. A great use of texture through the material palette finds gloss and matt in the concrete finishes, 2pac and ceramic tiles. It mixes well with the original red-brick features of the warehouse and the industrial character of the interior. Forget the suburbs, for sure. ● EMMA HOUGHTON
