Anson Smart The photographer/father/surfer/filmmaker (“usually in that order”) travels the world shooting the finest food and places “and the clever people who create them. Getting an up-close view of human creativity and ingenuity every day is inspiring”. This issue, he shot Bar Machiavelli for ‘La Vita è Bella’ (page 194). “It’s always a pleasure to work with Natasha and Jack,” he says of teaming up with the VL team. Smart lives in Sydney with his wife, three daughters and groodle puppy. Paul Barbera The New York-based photographer (above, with blogger Jenny Nguyen-Barron) says his Milan Design Week highlight was meeting friends and passionate creatives (page 58). “It took me 20 years to understand my craft,” he says. “I’m more emotive than process-driven; if it feels right, I’m probably on the right path.” Daniel Golling The…

editor’s letter

“uite frankly, Milan Design Week — Salone del Mobile — is for neither the faint-hearted nor the lacking in stamina, especially with a photographer, video crew and sound recordist in tow. Lights, camera, walk, talk. For the Vogue Living team, the world’s largest annual design festival was an exhilarating (albeit heavily scheduled) race to absorb its atmosphere and energy, meet its protagonists and cover enough ground to satisfy the very different requirements of the magazine’s print, online and social media platforms. That’s a lot of eyeballs and a lot of shoe leather.

The building, a 1900s Federation-style bungalow in North Adelaide, along with an adjoining, “stripped back” new structure by architect David Burton, was recently opened to the public. “David was flamboyant,” says antiques dealer and director of the museum, Martyn Cook. “He…

The term ‘luxury fatigue’ has been coined to diagnose a very modern problem, and was one of the standout topics at a recent Sydney forum hosted by Martin Raymond and Chris Sanderson of London-based trend consultancy The Future Laboratory. The forecasting duo, along with a panel of industry leaders, believes that as a result of marketing overkill we’re searching for a new kind of luxury based less on the latest musthaves and more on experiences, our wellbeing and the kind of deep emotional connections that can often be triggered by nature. » « James Ogilvy, principal at luxury consultancy Ogilvy & Co, believes that putting heart back into design is the antidote to our luxury burnout. “So much luxury marketing is superficial,” says Ogilvy, whose y superficial,” clients include Aston Martin…
