ISSUE #3

October 2011  | 118 pages

The 3rd Issue of Est has shaped up to be a bit of a Hampton’s special edition, with our talented photographer and writer-at-large Robyn Lea bringing you the very best of Hampton’s style - with only a tiny piece of seersucker in sight!

Ms Lea spent weeks immersing herself in the culture of this famous area of the east coast USA. From renowned designer James Huniford’s summer getaway, awash in greyed timbers and faded blues to the studio to the home of Ross Bleckner whose artworks we all covet here at Est headquarters. It seems Ms Lea had the Condé Nast photographers in hot pursuit, shooting the same hotels that we bring you this month in our Hamptons Guide - reinforcing our belief in the power of the digital magazine - instant access to the information as soon as we unearth it. No more lengthy delays waiting for print!

A united sisters front also stars this month with our ‘Designer Spotlight’ on the fabulous ‘Zuster’ sisters of Melbourne and their stunning furniture range. Plus the inspirational sisters at Bodie and Fou - who we have featured in our ‘Blog Love’ - keep us entertained... and stylishly so. Look out for their new catalogue coming your way.

Toni Maticevski’s involvement with the Ballet Lab’s Aviary will have you swooning over the brilliance of both the man behind the costumes and the bodies they adorn. And in keeping with the Est philosophy of not taking yourself too seriously, check out the Lanvin video and see if you recognize any of your own dance moves in there. Come on - you know you want to!
