卷首语 EDITOR'S LETTER

Vantage Shanghai - - CONTENTS -

Poetic life away from the noisy metropolis – it sounds like the melody of a pastoral shepherds' carol to us. Green mountains and rivers under the shade, bleating sheep, dogs running wild with joy and the pink-cheeked milkmaid... Unfortunately, modern city life is not what is described in Thomas Hardy's novels. Caught in the gap between the past and future, people rush ahead on unknown journeys in life, losing beautiful dreams of what hearts truly desire.

This issue of Vantage Magazine helps you fly away on the wings of a dream, one that relives beauty, freedom and idealism. Come to Australia's pastoral ecological farm to find the soul of green homes against picturesque rural backdrops. You can go fishing by the river, have a picnic in the wind or camp in the fields; then take a horseback journey filled with the birds' twitter and fragrance of flowers and trees...

The longing for a lifestyle described in ancient Chinese poems "picking chrysanthemums leisurely in a mountainous area” is echoed by designers at the ‘Design Shanghai 2018'. When luxury and comfort are redefined, they envisage designs of greener, more ecological and environmentally-friendly homes.This issue, we tour lagoon-side houses and urban utopias: pure natural, simple, fresh and beautiful.

Fashion designers also perceive that sustainable fashion design is an unstoppable force. 2018 Shanghai Fashion Week bore witness to how the fashion industry is finally cleaning up its act by exploring new concepts.

Relax your body and mind; get intoxicated in the dream of living a slow life to break the monotony of modern cities.

远离都市喧嚣的诗意生活,听起来像是牧羊童一曲悠扬的田园牧歌:青山绿水掩映下,咩咩叫的绵羊、四处欢蹦乱跳的小柴狗,还有红脸蛋的挤奶女工……可惜大都会中,飞速向前的生活列车并不会在托马斯·哈代小说铺陈的情景和轨道上前行。

被夹在过去和未来的缝隙之间,眼中只有当下,不甘平庸的心,奔赴在这一场未知的旅途中,却在不知不觉中遗失了美好憧憬……欲望都市中,难忘那些曾经的期许,本期《贵在上海》帮你拾回梦想的翅膀,重温对美好、自由和理想的一席幽梦。

来澳大利亚的原生态农庄小憩几日,在现代蜕变中寻觅到灵魂的绿色家园: 你可以于河边悠然垂钓,在风中野餐露营,同繁星倾心叙谈;再飞身骑上彪悍的骏马,耳边不再充斥车马之喧,眼中不见繁杂浮躁,身心回归浸泡在汩汩而出的生活源泉。

在心中种下“采菊东篱下,悠然见南山”的渴望,这样憧憬重回诗书琴画“慢生活”的心声,建筑设计师也聆听到。“设计上海2018”就诠释了当代新的设计理念: 当奢华和舒适被重新定义,绿色、生态、环保的居所便呼之欲出。它们脱去依靠奢侈的建材和虚华的装潢营造出的浓重脂粉气,就靠着绿色、生态的纯净自然特质,简简单单,清新靓丽。服装设计师也感知到回归自然的环保可持续时尚设计是时代发展的大潮中势不可挡的一股洪流。2018上海服装周便带你领略潮流瞬息万变的时尚业,看到越来越多新兴品牌,正在挖掘、探索和实践新理念的道路上,离根深蒂固的传统理念渐行渐远。

现在就开启拯救心灵的慢生活,陶醉在梦寐以求的舒缓忘忧中,呼唤生命本来的节奏韵律!
