Introducing marie claire Lifestyle #2, our new magazine for women living a fashionable life from the marie claire Australia team.
A lot has changed in the months spent pulling together this issue. We’re not going to lie, staying home throughout COVID-19 has been tough. But as we straddle the fine line between cocooning and cabin fever, we’ve found individual stamp is the difference.
Home is the ultimate expression of personal style. It extends from fashion and beauty, picking up family heirlooms along the way. It’s informed by the places we travel, the people who inspire us and the way we entertain. But mostly, it speaks to the way we want to be when we are off duty.
Creating this issue, we looked to some of the world’s most stylish trendsetters for ideas. Design guru Darren Palmer walked us through his Bondi beach pad while interiors queen Kelly Wearstler gave us a masterclass in her glamorous West-coast USA style. In Melbourne, The Flatiron label’s Penny Duggan translates her slow fashion ethos to her stunning home while in Sydney, artist Dina Broadhurst lives out her body-positive message.
On the food front, we stockpiled recipes to elevate everyday meals and rounded up irresistible chocolate desserts. And while we have postponed overseas travel plans, we’re taking inspiration from some of the best houses the world has to offer and planning our next gourmet escape in Australia for the moment domestic travel restrictions loosen up.
At times like this, the marie claire Australia ethos of style meets substance rings even louder and clearer. For interiors, it’s about the mood-boosting impact of an environment that reflects the loves and lives of the people inside. But mostly it’s about creating a home you’ll want to bunker down in.
