EDITOR’S LETTER above: ﬂorist A lmost two decades ago, as a freelance writer living in London, PHOTOGRAPHERS: DAMIAN BENNETT (PORTRAIT), FELIX FOREST (COLLETTE DINNIGAN), KASIA GATKOWSKA (JEAN-PHILIPPE Ruby Barber I travelled to Australia to produce features for a British interiors DEMEYER), GEOFF LUNG (RUBY BARBER COVER SHOT), SIMON MENGES (RUBY BARBER), ANSON SMART (HARE & KLEIN) (page 89); as publication. Working with legendary photographer Geoﬀ Lung, we a child (inset). shot the Sydney home of gallerist Sarah Cottier and her husband, below: Collette Ashley Barber, also a photographer. Geoﬀ and I were captivated by the couple’s young daughter, Ruby, and took several portraits. One of Dinnigan’s those, of Ruby peering cheekily from behind a hot pink gerbera ﬂower, made it to the Sydney home. cover of the esteemed British magazine. There’s a lovely continuity in the fact that these days Ruby Barber is a successful ﬂorist, based in Berlin and proﬁled in this (page 132). issue (page 89). I like to think that gerbera was a portent of things to come. 26 VOGUELIVING.COM.AU There’s similar serendipity in Jason Mowen’s proﬁle of the late photographer and designer Willy Rizzo (page 75). Mowen recalls that his own great-grandparents had furniture by Rizzo in their European home, but it was several decades before he realised the signiﬁcance of its provenance. Writing about Rizzo’s glamorously eventful career was, for Mowen, a “vivid remembrance of a pivotal moment in my own life, when I knew that travel and creative discovery beckoned”. I always maintain that while Vogue Living may be global in its outlook, the magazine’s heart remains truly Australian. Nowhere is that more evident than in the focus on one of our most enduring and popular brands, Mud Australia (page 93). I love founder Shelley Simpson’s honesty: “I’ve had to make a lot of mistakes to learn, but no one’s ever told me not to do it the way I do.” And while Collette Dinnigan might have (temporarily, we hope) decamped to Italy, she remains an Australian fashion luminary. Her home on Sydney harbour (page 132), shot exclusively for Vogue Living, reveals an attitude and aesthetic that are proudly of our shores. With a nod to the romance of the French Riviera, it’s the breezy colour palette and whimsical art (a life-size whale, anyone?) that — to my mind anyway — place Dinnigan’s home ﬁrmly in the southern hemisphere. Writer Chris Pearson describes it as ‘a couture one-oﬀ ’. Perfectly put. NEALE WHITAKER CHECK OUT OUR NEW-LOOK APP.

IN VIEW DRWEAEMAVERS For three generations, the Frey family has created innovative fabrics and wallpapers. Today, it is also custodian of several esteemed French fabric houses. By FIONA McCARTHY 42 VOGUELIVING.COM.AU
PHOTOGRAPHER: JEROME GALLAND H E PA R I S W I N T E R W E AT H E R may be dreary, but inside the Pierre Frey Tissus Inspirés (Inspired Fabrics) exhibition, the atmosphere is anything but dull. Displayed on the ﬁrst ﬂoor of the Musée des Arts décoratifs during Maison & Objet, 80 years’ worth of fabric and wallpaper designs from the prestigious fabric house dazzles the eye with a wild array of colour and pattern. Lush jungle ﬂora collides with graphic ellipses; naïve 1950s prints — from schools of ﬁsh to baskets of overﬂowing fruit — team with wild animal prints; and quirkily illustrated motifs of tea cups, feathers and vintage-style winter skiers look right at home alongside a luxurious jacquard of Aboriginal artist Gracie Morton Ngale’s Bush Plum Dreaming. “We’re very eclectic,” says Pierre Frey Junior, grandson of the original founder. “It’s what makes us diﬀerent.” Still family-owned, the Paris-based company has been run by Pierre’s father, Patrick, as creative director for more than 40 years. He and his brothers — Vincent, now chief executive, and Matthieu, responsible for sales in the Far East — are intricately involved. Pierre Frey’s captivating diversity each season owes much to Patrick’s mantra: ‘creativity is daring, and daring is creativity’. “It’s how our grandfather started the identity of the brand and it’s how our father has carried on its spirit,” says Pierre. “From the beginning, we’ve always worked with the best materials. New Zealand wool, Indian cotton, French linen and Thai silk are all shipped to our factories in the north of Paris where our collections are made.” Each fabric or wallpaper is created using old and new techniques: hand- and ink-jet screen printing; plain, damask, brocatelle and jacquard weaving; hand-strung and automated looms; and, for some limited-edition pieces, the use of artisanal hand embroidery. Tradition makes way for innovation, too, and the company has acquired various prestigious textile ﬁrms to add to the Pierre Frey stable, including Braquenié, Lauer, Fadini-Borghi and Boussac, for which Pierre himself created his ﬁrst high-tech collection, shown at Maison & Objet. Le Manach, one of the last French fabric houses to produce silks and velvets on a 19th-century hand loom, was added in 2013. ›› from top: Pierre Frey ‘Balata’ fabric by Caroline Watson.
