Inside the issue: STYLE Spring 2022
Our Spring Luxe issue is all about pure, indulgent escapism as we bring you glammed-up fashion, beautifully bold design, radiant beauty, must-see cultural events and unforgettable food and travel experiences. 

“STYLE is a place we go purely for pleasure and to leave the repetition of our daily lives behind us,” writes Editor Ashley Nolan. “We have your recipe for a spring full of happiness and the occasional indulgence – now all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy.”

Our two covers evoke the feeling of spring luxury. Our fashion cover celebrates all things glam with bold, high-fashion textures and shapes, while our home cover showcases an opulent apartment that has undergone a beautiful revamp.

DESIGN

Immerse yourself in beautiful abodes around the world, from a 1970s Italian apartment dripping in jewel tones, to a mid-century artist haven inspired by Japanese minimalism. We sit down with Bec Snelling to hear the story behind Snelling Studio, get the latest report on spring fabric trends and meet the talented creative behind Mystery Creek Ceramics.

Get inspired with beautiful table settings and lush new-season fabrics and wallpapers, discover gorgeous outdoor furniture from the Milan, and fall in love with the timeless interiors by legendary designer Jean-Louis Denoit.

CULTURE

We step into the newly-opened Bergman Gallery in Auckland as it brings modern Pacific art to a wider audience, and sit down with talented playwright Nahyeon Lee ahead of her debut with Silo Theatre.

Discover the intriguing light sculptures of Agnès Debizet, see how costumer designer Nic Smillie brings characters to life, and uncover the hidden treasures by Koloa Jewellery.

BEAUTY

Spring beauty is all about making more with less, with multi-tasking products, advanced skincare and single-colour approaches. We test out the best new products for eyes, cheeks, lips and more, and bring you beautiful new scents to see you through the season.

Have fun with luxe hair accessories, be it scarves, logo clips or bejewelled bands, and meet the natural skincare expert Susanne Kaufmann.

ACCESSORIES

Louis Vuitton unveils its latest limited-edition watch, Van Cleef & Arpels debuts it iconic Perlée collection in Aotearoa, and Orsini Fine Jewellery’s Sarah Hutchings shares the latest trends from Europe.

Get travel ready with chic carry-on bags, discover feminine watch styles that make a statement and find inspiration for an accessories refresh with divine Christian Dior pieces.

FASHION

Our fashion shoot celebrates bold, mood-boosting looks. Combine on-trend brights with classic neutrals, play with structured silhouettes and indulge in texture for a show-stealing season. We roundup the latest spring runway trends, from feminine florals and delicate pastels, to neon brights and eye-catching shapes.

We showcase the new generation of New Zealand farmers finding fashionable and sustainable ways to repurpose wool and serve up casual yet cool menswear from Dior‘s latest capsule.

CONCIERGE

In Concierge, we bring you two very different holiday inspirations: a luxurious, eco-friendly adventure in Tasmania, and an indulgent escape in in dazzling Las Vegas.

Pop-up dining is on the agenda, as we meet the innovative chefs rethinking the restaurant model, and we say ‘bonjour’ to Auckland’s stunning new French bistro, Origine. We also hit the road in the Polestar 2 with Deadly Ponies’ founder Liam Bowden.

STYLE Spring 2022 is on sale Monday 20 June – available in stores and online here.
