EDITOR’S LET­TER

VOGUE Living Australia - - CONTENTS -

Mel­bourne has al­ways ex­cited me. It’s a city of some­times con­tra­dic­tory lay­ers, from the glam­our and clam­our of Cup Days and Grand Fi­nals to the unas­sum­ing chic of its in­de­pen­dent gal­leries and laneway bars. It’s im­pos­si­ble not to get caught up in the elec­tric­ity of the city when you’re there. This sum­mer, we’re cel­e­brat­ing all our un­of­fi­cial cul­tural capital has to of­fer. From the re­fined and renowned dar­lings of the din­ing scene to emerg­ing artists and en­ter­tain­ers, we peel back the city layer by layer to re­veal Mel­bourne’s myr­iad hid­den and not-so-hid­den charms. This is­sue would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the pas­sion of two ex­tra­or­di­nary Mel­bourne women — our Mel­bourne editor and fea­tures writer An­nemarie Kiely and re­spected in­te­ri­ors pho­tog­ra­pher Sharyn Cairns. These two pas­sion­ate Mel­bur­ni­ans have taken us on an in­sid­ers’ jour­ney through the city they know and love.

Once again we cel­e­brate our Women of Ex­cel­lence part­ner­ship with BMW, with pro­files of all the in­cred­i­ble women tak­ing part in the Mel­bourne edi­tion of the series (page 95).

The homes we share with you in this is­sue are truly a re­flec­tion of Mel­bourne’s artis­tic heart. We fea­ture the luxe bo­hemian home of ac­tor Rachel Grif­fiths and her hus­band, painter and print­maker An­drew Tay­lor (page 122), along­side the breath­tak­ing gallery-style res­i­dence of for­mi­da­ble gal­lerist and art dealer Anna Schwartz (page 144). ››
