PEI-RU KEH Wallpaper* New York Editor Keh met with Jeremy Anderson, co-founder of New York lighting and design studio Apparatus, to talk about his debut series of ceramic art. ‘Whether monumental or hand-sized, Jeremy’s idiosyncratic cast of ceramic characters, called “piccolos”, are meditative and tactile, just the kind of company you want to keep around,’ says Keh. See the pieces cast in a fresh light by photographers Keirnan Monaghan and Theo Vamvounakis on page 065. PAT BOGUSLAWSKI Movement director Former dancer Boguslawski began working as a movement director while he was modelling for Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen and she asked him to coach the other runway models.

back to nature

Welcome to our December issue! Compared to previous years, we are entering the festive season on a quieter note – with extravagant parties replaced by more intimate occasions, and excess giving way to a more thoughtful appreciation of the people and things we hold dear. There are grounds for optimism and opportunities for celebrations of a different sort – and so for the final issue of the year, we present an exaltation of earthly delights, and an ode to the joys of entertaining at home. Our newsstand cover unveils an exciting new project by Swedish design studio Front, who have worked with Italian manufacturer Moroso to create a new series titled Nature Furniture. Inspired by studies on the therapeutic effects of time spent in nature, they decided to bring fragments of…

tux return

We’ve always erred towards classic dress codes, but, for A/W20, our failsafe silhouettes have had an experimental uplift. The catwalks saw something of a tux redux, with brands offering new takes on the eveningwear essential. At Prada, an oversized blazer came festooned with flapper girl fringing, acting as an androgynous upgrade on Jazz Age embellishment, while at Dolce & Gabbana, a cropped tuxedo took on a softer silhouette, with a bow detail that fluidly draped across the body. Versace spliced and diced the style, piercing cut-outs with punky metal hoops, while Alexander McQueen dabbled in deconstruction, with a tuxedo resembling a doubled-up jacket. Think of it as timeless dressing with a twist. For stockists throughout, see page 128 Hair: Liam Russell using Evo and Oribe. Make-up: Emma Regan using Marc Jacobs Beauty…

back to black

Elsa Peretti’s tenure at Tiffany & Co ushered in a new era of simplicity in jewellery design. The Italian-born former model’s jewellery career began in the 1970s with sculptural pieces created for friend and fashion designer Halston. She preferred working in silver, then a metal rarely considered special enough for fine jewellery. By eschewing the ornate aesthetic that had hitherto characterised the decade, Peretti brought organic concepts to the forefront. Her translation of the natural creations that inspired her, such as beans, hearts and starfish, utilised empty space, creating clean, uncluttered outlines. As a child, her curiosity was sparked by visits to the crypt of a 17th century Roman church and Antoni Gaudí’s Casa Mila in Barcelona, and her perennially popular bone cuff was born from these sojourns, the undulating…

conversation pieces

The origins of Bosnian craft brand Zanat date back more than a century, when founder Orhan Niksic’s great-grandfather stumbled on a primitive handcarving technique that originated near his hometown of Konjic. He established a woodcarving workshop and passed the now Unesco-protected technique down through family generations. Niksic started Zanat in 2015 with the aim of preserving this family legacy and he saw the recent pandemic as a chance to discuss themes of family and home. ‘The lockdown has been a good opportunity to stay closer to our household members, to ponder the future, the human condition and what truly matters to us,’ he says. Niksic took up discussions with some of Europe’s most celebrated designers, including Monica Förster, Ilse Crawford, Sebastian Herkner, and Ludovica and Roberto Palomba. ‘We all agreed…

padded values

This winter, as a host of performance labels have been working hard to ensure we can stylishly endure a cold snap with a cleaner conscience, we’re investing in outerwear that lightens our footprint. Take, for example, Herno’s latest Globe collection, which is its most sustainable yet, and features snuggly jackets made using regenerated nylon and insulation formed from recycled feathers. Fellow Italian brand Geox has also warmed to eco-friendlier fabrics. The padding of its eyecatching outerwear is created using regenerated feathers and a fibre formed from plastic waste. And Belgian label Templa has exemplary eco acumen, using PrimaLoft insulation, which incorporates biodegradable filler. Its windproof and water-repellent styles don’t just shield the body, they’ll soften the environmental blow, too.…
