Quebecoise-duo Marie-Pier Guilmain and Maud Beauchamp head up mpgmb, a multidisciplinary design studio, that creates one-offs like this fabulous ‘Arizona Stoneware Collection’. A compositionally compatible family of earthenware, these unique planters and vases are beautifully articulated.

Made from glazed stoneware and terracotta they have familiar characteristics. Corrugated collars and big cuffs create a harmonious balance of texture. Feminine rounded bottoms partner with their flat-based mates. Plants peek or cascade over the top creating an altogether new shape.

Parisian design royalty Christian Liaigre along with Saint-Germain-des-Prés-based antiquities dealer and interior designer Florence Lopez, have theatrically co-curated part of Liaigre’s flagship showroom in the 7th arrondisement creating an exotic, sultry salon.

Awash in hand-brushed emerald greens, teals, and sea blues the lovingly furnished room is a tribute of professional respect between the classic contemporalist and the diverse design hunter of vintage objets d’art. An ongoing engagement, this will be an active evolutionary stage as furniture and accessories are sold then replenished.

Vega Cottage, designed by Swedish architects, Kolman Boye, is a dwelling acutely in tune with its sublime surroundings. Nestled on the island of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago, and based on the traditional Norwegian fishermen huts (called Naust) it is a lesson in non-invasive architecture.

Built for siblings to revisit their childhood place of solace, the interior in linseed oil painted pine and birch is a glowing den, as pure as its organic surrounds. Generous windows frame magnificently wild vistas of weather-beaten shrubs and craggy granite mountains.

With respect and restraint the landscape’s new guest does not disturb the bedrock. Instead, visitors must arrive by a natural ravine open to the elements, its dialogue never static. As the happy occupants state, “The access should be a process. Walking up to the building prepares you for the environment and adapts you to it.”

This kind of retreat is meditative to the point of religious, a simple place of worship to the most beautiful divinity, ‘Mother Nature’.

Arizonian Krysta Jabczenski lookbook for Bon boutique and Desert Vintage, is a whimsical feminine daydream-scape. Colourblocked explorers in a ghost town, these ladies are curious in a ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ kind of way.

Tulle skirts, sombreros and metallic slippers colourfully parade down sun-bleached streets. Black shirted and skirted with natural rattan hats, a classic look, against vivid white and Barragán-esque style walls.

Valentino’s Fall 2015 Menswear collection is a kaleidoscope of rich colour and form. Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri took their inspiration from the Parisian Ballet Russes, and the San Franciscan Beat Generation, for a bold free spirited ensemble.

Muddy deep tones of burgundy, burnt orange, both light and navy blue are punctuated by scarlet and royal blue. Geometric forms are repeated, mirrored and scaled, manipulating and enhancing the male form. Shoulders are exaggerated, chests are broader, and waists are pinched or belted with colour blocks. Chunky zippers are expressed on matching backpacks and even the runway conforms to this new brave tribal expression.

Although the spirit is a heady mix of Beat and Ballet, the geometric expression came from a chance online encounter with Melbourne-based artist Esther Stewart. When you view Stewart’s paintings the connection is immediate, strong graphic forms in solid colour with an intrinsic flair for palette combinations.

As Piccioli so succinctly puts it “Geometry is a new form of decoration”!
