home is wherever i’m with you…

Earlier this year, there was a lot of talk about ‘the new normal’. At that stage, it looked like that might involve slightly inconvenient things like not being able to trawl through flower markets on Saturday mornings, or enjoy a live set with a great glass of wine at your favourite local, but as this year has worn on, it’s clear there’s nothing normal about what’s actually happening. Remote work in some form is here to stay, as is a sense that nothing’s changing quickly.

scents of place

Inspired by the meticulous recording of plant life by artists working during the Age of Discovery, luxury-goods label LOEWE has debuted a Home Scents collection based on the outdoors.

“Jewellery is designed to be worn, and because the raw materials in jewellery can be melted down and repurposed, it made sense for me to offer an opportunity for people to breathe new life into pieces they no longer wear”HOLLY RYAN, JEWELLER Holly Ryan describes her jewellery as nature- and art-inspired. Her label was founded in Queensland and her work is handcrafted in Australia, each piece designed to last a lifetime. How did you discover your love for jewellery-making? I grew up in my mother’s [jewellery] studio and have been around the practice since I was young. I was ultimately drawn to making jewellery because of its lower environmental impact and the fact that metals never lose their value – they can be kept forever or melted down and recycled. Who…
