This spring we’re embracing the spirit of reinvention, inviting you to escape into the world of fashion, beauty, design, accessories, culture and concierge.Â
“Lockdown saw us rethink this edition of STYLE many times. It seemed like the right time to focus on creatives around the world who work from home, sharing a glimpse of their homes and how they maintain both their creativity and work practice,” writes Editor-in-Chief Michael McHugh. “However, I still wanted that escape moment where I could look at pages of a house and imagine sitting in a lounger by a pool, looking out to the view with sun on my face and, just for a moment, forget about lockdown and dream. Lose yourself in the pages of STYLE and enjoy.”
We have two gorgeous covers to choose from. We sit down with Kiwi muso Ladyhawke on the eve of her long-awaited new album, and retreat to pool-side glamour in a Cape Town coastal home.
For our spring design edition, we step into a ’60 and ’70’s LA modernism-inspired home, discover a moody and minimalist residence and take a tour inside the chic abodes of cool creatives.
Discover new season furniture inspiration, from bold Italian classics to light, elegant pieces; dynamic textiles and ceramics inspired by the drawings of Jean Buffile and luxury bedding and homewares to make your bedroom a sanctuary.
Songstress Ladyhawke opens up about her personal and professional struggles in our cover feature, speaking to STYLE about her musical evolution as she celebrates the release of her new album.
We talk to the curators behind a new Flying Nun Records exhibition, uncover the hidden works of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, and meet up-and-coming Kiwi actor George Ferrier who is making a big break on the silver screen.
In spring beauty, we’re embracing the return of our joie de vivre, with free-spirited makeup and luminous skin. We’ve got the latest floral scents, lush lip colours and skin saviours to put a spring in your step.
We ask the experts about at-home skin treatments, round up the latest superhero serums, and talk to free-thinking makeup artist Violette about joining French brand Guerlain.
We’re relishing the opportunity to step out in some luxury accessories this spring, with new-season timepieces in bright hues and classic metallics.
We head to New South Wales where lustrous pearls are enjoying a resurgence, showcase exquisite engagement rings and bridal jewellery, and covet Louis Vuitton’s latest ‘It’ bag.
The picturesque Hedges Estate was the location for our spring fashion shoot, floaty shapes, soft palettes and ruffles for days all act as a timely reminder of the power of reinvention. Charm and mystery are at play in Dior’s latest ready-to-wear collection, while the fashion house strikes a balance between vintage and sportswear in its Beachwear capsule.
We also speak with up-and-coming designer Olivia Cashmore about her fashion debut and look at Allbirds’ bold foray into the world of activewear.
Resident wine-expert Cameron Douglas heads to Hawke’s Bay for a culinary getaway, while we escape the city to a new wellness retreat on Kawau Island.
We meet the two top-shelf enthusiasts behind Honest rum, sample flavoursome fare at Ponsonby’s new Korean eatery, discover old-world luxe at Otahuna Lodge and dive into the history behind a five-star Dunedin hotel.
