Hermes

In the beginning, there was cobalt and kaolin. Then came Ming porcelain which evolved from being the preserve of Chinese Emperors to winning over Europe’s princely courts as early as the Sixteenth Century.

The colour of peace but, above all, a tint that has the power to combine everyday life with all the imaginative power of travel on your table. In Hermes creations for The House, the designs are directly inspired by nature. Nothing is rigid in these plates and cups. Here, geometric abstraction is the logical conclusion to this history of “blue-and-white”, made of endless comings and goings between Europe and the East.

All three bags

‘Cut and Craft’ – the winners of Gucci’s paper craft competition are found

These bags are the three winners of Gucci’s social media competition ‘Icons of Heritage – Cut & Craft, launched on September 2 of this year. And we understand why! They are absolutely stunning – colourful, inventive and quirky to say the least.

Before we get into who made these divine bags however, let’s just briefly revisit the idea behind the competition: The concept behind this Gucci campaign was for fans to download the pattern of one of three iconic Gucci bags, and then make their version of one of them using paper and other materials. The competitors would then photograph the result and upload it to the competition’s dedicated Facebook page.

Thousands of submissions and votes later, the selection was narrowed down to nine beautiful recreations, and yesterday, Gucci’s creative Director, Frida Gianni selected the three winners.

From left to right:

‘Jackie’: Soyoung Jung of Korea
‘Stirrup’: Gerardo Larrea of Peru
‘New Bamboo’: Monia di Liello of Italy

The three bags are now featured as the cover image of Gucci’s Facebook Timeline, and the creators behind each of them will be receiving a complimentary Gucci handbag.

Good work and congrats!

Suzusan 1

The Haute Couture of Lighting

Fusing 100-year-old historical tradition with modern design innovation, the Düsseldorf label, Suzusan, have released an exquisite lighting series or “Luminaries”. Designer and company founder, Hiroyuki Murase, utilized an ancient Japanese technique known as Shibori, a tradition his family has carried with them for over a century. Translating literally “to wring, press and twist”, the process results in incredibly tactile and unique and spectacular textures.

We can’t help but love the Hokkaido Pendant! Such a statement….

The Big Table

Dine in Style.

Characterised by an extremely original design and with its mix of traditional materials, the Big Table is a striking piece of furniture. The rectangular wood top (also available in tempered glass, black walnut or solid European Walnut) is sleek and modern. Angled steel legs, in varying widths have been cut and bent to become of field of experimentation for all sorts of colour combinations, giving birth to a more experimental table

In conceiving this eye-catching piece, renowned Brussels designer Alain Gilles describes the table as “a strong personality, always in movement, always trying to put one foot in front of the other; as if it was walking, each foot stretches to reach further away.”

The Big Table is available exclusively through Fanuli Furniture.

A Missoni Home

“MISSONIHOME is known for creating its own style that reflects a celebration of life; our brand is an experience of happiness, excitement, beauty, creativity, style and elegance. We are inspired by the seasons of nature and we play with colour because life is more beautiful with colour.”

A whole new meaning has been brought to the phrase ‘living in the lap of luxury’; with the first ever residential MISSONIHOME in the world rising in Manila, through the 52-story Acqua Livingstone – the fourth of six condominium towers in the Acqua Private Residences project, developed in the Philippine capital by Century Properties Group, Inc.

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that this project will sit as one of the most stylish residential properties in the world; what else could you expect from an Italian fashion house with prints and colours as iconic and vivid as those of Missoni?

The progressive style of Missoni has earned them acclaim globally from the fashion world for decades due its creativeness and ability to elevate knitwear to an artistic form.

In 1996 Rosita Missoni passed on the fashion reins to daughter Angela and focused on designing for MISSONIHOME, a creative extension of the Missoni aesthetic in furniture, home accessories, and interior design.

The property will consist of house functions rooms, business centre, an indoor and outdoor gym, Jacuzzi, a library and spa. The upper level is a social space dedicated to interaction and entertainment with an amphitheatre, lounge, DJ booth and dance floor, pool with swim up bar, and barbecue facilities. Tying these two levels together is a fanciful organic wire-mesh tree that winds its way up and connects to the mezzanine floor, where residents can enjoy surrounding views or enjoy a meal in the open-air dining area.

The designer residential space provides a Missoni lifestyle experience, a combination of art and function that completely redefines the condo living experience.

Chanel Cruise Collection 2012/12

In a way that only he can, Karl Largerfeld unveiled the playful and opulent Chanel 2012/13 Summer Ready-To-Wear range this month in Paris. With the Chateau de Versille’s legendary garden fountains as the centrepiece, a charming scene was set, perfect for the 18th Century inspired frivolity that took place.
Favouring the pastel and floral trend, Lagerfeld was able to strike a balance between playful, costume like design and 21st century sensibility. Models sported pastel; bob-top bespoke wigs to set off the floral sleeved frocks, gold embroidered denim vests and rich brocade-infused one-piece swimsuits in a futuristic Marie Antoinette style.

“It is Coco rock, French rock with a very 18th century frivolity, one that’s been updated with new materials and new proportions,” Karl Largerfeld explained.

Vivid Sydney Festival

Sydney’s annual festival of light, music and innovation is back from the 25th May – 11th June. The artist driven festival, in its fourth year will once again transform Sydney into a canvas of creativity and inspiration.

Vivid has become Sydney’s major winter festival with free and ticketed events at the Sydney Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay, the Rocks and now extending to the Walsh Bay precinct for the first time.

Thirteen new installations will form the Walsh Bay Light Walk, curated by Sydney Dance Company’s resident multimedia artist Peter Greg. Set to be an immersive cinematic experience, the walk takes visitors from pier 1 to 9 on a journey of creativity and innovation, offering interactive pathways flooded with luminous colours and astounding sculptures.

A fractured heart created by the Illuminart team and ARIA Award winning performer Gotye alone is something not to be missed. Combining dazzling animations with unique musical notes when played as a harp by the audience, the interactive instrument is said to be a highlight of the walk.

The full Vivid Sydney program is available at http://vividsydney.com

P.E. DEPT

‘For too long we’ve had to endure the ordinary, the overcrowded, and the uninspiring.’ Now, ‘A new kind of gym has arrived.’

With industrial style, high tech equipment and the luxe touches of heated floors and marble vanities, P.E. DEPT is THE designer gym for Sydney’s fitness circuit. Built as an antithesis of impersonal gym mega-chains, P.E. DEPT owners Dion and Shannon Rivkin recreated the design of an old school gym. “We wanted it to feel a little industrial, with a New York style of gym feel.” That was interpreted into brick walls and vibrant hues inspired by school football jerseys by the innovative architect firm Burley Katon Halliday.

Centered on Sydney’s sophisticated Potts Point, BKH refurbished the former Chinese nightclub into a unique space and even kept the original metal doors adorned with Chinese symbols. Members walk through the shiny doors and rich red hallways to be inspired by trainers Joseph Coyne, a former UK army soldier and nurture their skin with Miranda Kerr’s organic skincare line Kora. Calm and spacious the gym focuses on health and avoids overcrowding with a capped membership.
‘Sydney finally gets the health and fitness centre it deserves.’
