    MR ANDREA ARTIOLI

    The new renaissance

    In the current landscape of luxury fashion Artioli is something of an outlier. It remains a thriving family run business by continuing to do what it has always done: make hand-crafted shoes for men with passion and gusto.

    THE BLACK SOFT

    Fuck art, let’s dance

    Electro/fashion/art duo The Black Soft have only been around for three years, but their influence and attitude feels much greater than their relative age. To listen to Vimeo’s description of the pair one might assume they had spent decades forging an identity.

    FOLIE À PLUSIEURS

    Perfumes with a methodical madness

    There are few sensations that speak to our collective consciousness the way perfume does—its fragile, ephemeral nuances conjuring both fantasy and memory in our minds and bodies, with layered possibilities shifting between the wearer and those who share their personal space.

    LEBBEUS WOODS

    Experimental Architecture

    My first encounter with Lebbeus Woods was in 2004 when the confusion of 9/11 was still pervasive. His book Radical Reconstructions (1997), fell open into my hands. It was staggering. These prescient constructions revealed something that hadn’t yet happened when the book was published.

    EXPÉRIENCE POMMERY

    An extraordinary commitment to art and innovation

    Thirty metres below ground, carved out of chalk and limestone, is one of the biggest and most unusual private art galleries in Europe. Here, amid 18 kilometres of interconnected rib and barrel vault galleries, art is served at around 10 degrees—the same temperature as the 30 million bottles of champagne that surround it.

    JOHN WARDLE

    Collecting. Obsession. Architecture.

    On Tasmania’s Bruny Island, where the architect built his award-winning house known as the Shearers Quarters (it really is a shearers quarters!), Wardle has a 1940s apple shed filled with objects of his affection: chairs, antique agricultural machinery, old apple packaging technology. Nearby, a more contemporary steel shed accommodates further acquisitions.

    MURMUR (MÛR’MER)

    An installation by Rosslynd Piggott

    A murmur is by definition an elusive thing, existing in the periphery. Like a shadow or an imprint, the more one attempts to grasp it, the more ephemeral it becomes, its force residing in the realm of suggestion or evocation rather than that of the literal or figurative.

    SIX DIMENSIONS OF LUXURY

    Connecting with the next generation of luxury consumers

    Since the beginning of this century luxury brands have re-defined how they communicate and engage with their audiences. Having long grappled with the changing beliefs of their traditional customers, the emergence of a new and unique generation of luxury consumers has changed the playing field entirely.

    LUI HON

    Clothes to collect

    Like his beautifully crafted clothes, fashion designer Lui Hon chooses his words carefully. There are no large arm gestures, as are often seen in this industry, only thoughtful responses to each question.

    MPAVILION

    Pergodas, Pavilions and Contemporary Design

    The MPavilion aims to fit this bill. Heralded as “a unique architecture commission and design event for Melbourne,” MPavilion has been conceived as a “meeting place for creative collaboration and community engagement—a new type of clubhouse—to enhance the lives of all Victorians”—and, for that matter, the many visitors to Melbourne from interstate and overseas.
