EDI­TOR’S LET­TER

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Contents - Cathy Wagstaff, Edi­tor cathy­wagstaff@sig­na­ture­me­dia.com.au

Here at Sig­na­ture we have been over­whelmed by the flood of praise our read­ers have shared for our fresh new look, and our au­tumn is­sue prom­ises to only move from strength to strength.

One fab­u­lous first for us this edi­tion is our celebrity cover; and we couldn’t be more ex­cited to have the stun­ning, world-em­brac­ing An­gelina Jolie on board. Her lat­est movie, ‘Un­bro­ken’, was largely filmed around Aus­tralia, and while in town she sat down with Sig­na­ture to dis­cuss life, travel and work­ing be­hind the cam­era.

Our travel dreams con­tinue to flour­ish, and the sto­ries found within the fol­low­ing pages will see you ven­ture from the de­lights on our Aus­tralian doorstep, all the way into outer space – and you can just imag­ine the ar­ray of won­drous ex­pe­ri­ences that lie in be­tween. From the mys­ter­ies of Azer­bai­jan’s cap­i­tal Baku to the shores of the Galá­pa­gos; the in­dul­gent re­sorts of Mau­ri­tius to the best vil­las in Bali; hotels with the ‘de­signer touch’ to the high­speed thrills of tour­ing Europe in a su­per­car... there are few cor­ners of the globe left un­ex­plored.

I per­son­ally had the won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore Lake Como, favoured by artists and aris­to­crats alike, with the divine Susie Westwood of The Brand­man Agency (the photo be­low was taken at the lake’s edge - Susie to the right).

Mean­while, food­ies will dis­cover why Sin­ga­pore and Los An­ge­les are two des­ti­na­tions to add to the travel menu, and the style savvy will fawn over the design ge­nius of Ros­sana Or­landi and Thomas Hamel, the tai­lored fash­ions of Sav­ile Row, the growl of Jaguar’s new F-Type and Aus­tralia’s lus­trous pearls.
