MOODBOARD COURTESY OF PREEN BY THORNTON BREGAZZI. PHOTOGRAPHS: LUCKY IF SHARP, PIXELATE


MOODBOARD
The Preen designers on the aristocratic
bohemianism behind their latest collection
For their pre-fall 2019 line, Preen’s Justin Thornton and
Thea Bregazzi drew on a visit to Sissinghurst Castle, the
home of the author Vita Sackville-West. ‘Our daughters
were invited to attend a painting class there,’ Thornton
says. ‘We were given a private tour of the house by
Juliet Nicolson, Vita’s granddaughter – it was so
inspiring to hear about Vita’s life and see the gardens
she had designed.’ The alluring looks echo Vita’s
reputation for challenging gender norms, by way of
earthy tweeds and patchwork raincoats, juxtaposed
with silky blouses embellished with pussycat bows
and ostrich feathers. ‘She was in touch with both
her femininity and masculinity,’ says Bregazzi. ‘She
was truly modern.’ LUCY HALFHEAD

‘O

through her veins – she

up until that point, the young Victoria was never, ever alone: at night
she slept on a truckle bed in her mother’s room in Kensington Palace,
and by day she was in the care of her governess, Baroness Lehzen.

overprotected teenager to the most powerful woman in the world in
her stride. Of course, I also have a shred of sympathy for the young

The opportunity this offers to elide the separation between
performers and audience makes for an almost surreally immersive

large as that of a major opera house, able to accommodate the Philhar-

‘We could have made the Pavilion any size, but we wanted to keep

‘Wherever you sit, you can see the sweat on a performer’s forehead,
or the lift of an eyebrow, and this fantastic sound envelops you.
You’re completely connected to what’s going on on stage.’

Los Angeles is the kind of place that wears you out. It’s a sullen,
sunless March afternoon and I’ve arrived, neurotically early,
to meet Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at a new member’s club in West
Hollywood, which turns out to be so cool and cleverly disguised that
my taxi driver can’t find it. When he finally does – it is masquerading
as a bungalow on an otherwise nondescript residential strip – I’m
asked to hand over my iPhone before being allowed in. An unsmiling
hostess slaps branded stickers over its camera lens, front and back.
‘A gentle reminder that we do not welcome social media,’ she says,
before declining my jet-lagged request for coffee and sending me off
to wait in a corner with a glass of tap water. I dressed up this morning,
but feel all wrong. LA does that, somehow. What’s our English rose
doing in a city like this?

This is Rosie’s sixth cover story for Harper’s Bazaar and the third
time I’ve interviewed her – on every occasion she’s been charming and
self-effacing, generous and giving. She wears her beauty lightly; what
comes through most emphatically is her desire to do well, to behave
well. ‘I just want to come across like a decent person,’ she told me
once. ‘I want to make my family proud.’ Her parents are still together,
still living in the Devon farmhouse where she grew up. ‘I have that
solid background,’ she says. The fact she remains so relatable may go

Perhaps unsurprisingly for someone whose curvaceous athleti-

a seemingly effortless ability to flit between girlish wholesomeness
and full-on sex appeal – Rosie says the changes to her body caused
by pregnancy were the most difficult thing to deal with. ‘It was a

The mother and daughter
behind Chantecaille on the
brand’s fragrant collaboration
with de Gournay

The rose de Mai, which blooms for only three weeks


a year, is the rare and exquisite ingredient in
Chantecaille’s most luxurious products. Now it’s at the
heart of the brand’s collaboration with the design house
de Gournay. ‘We wanted to celebrate the rose de Mai,
and chose to collaborate with de Gournay because of
our shared love of botanicals and craftsmanship,’
explains the creative director Olivia Chantecaille.
The two-piece collection heralds the return of
Chantecaille’s Darby Rose fragrance, originally
launched in 1999. It is accompanied by a new Lumière
Rose highlighter presented in a unique print, the first
time a de Gournay design has featured roses.
‘I have always loved de Gournay wallpaper… and the
collection was conceived as the perfect feminine
celebration of these unique blooms wrapped in this
amazing packaging,’ says the beauty brand’s founder,
Olivia’s mother Sylvie. The limited-edition products are
only available in May, mirroring the rose de Mai’s brief
yet glorious harvest, so they are set to be as precious
as the flower that inspired them. BECKI MURRAY

n ardent reader can fall in love with a place long
before ever travelling there; and so it was with me,
and my fantasy of an Alpine summer. As a child,
I had dreamt of joining Heidi in the flower-clad
meadows that surrounded her grandfather’s moun-
tain cabin, an idyll where ‘she drank in the golden sunlight, the fresh
air… and wished for nothing better than to remain there forever.’
In time, when I came to study the Romantic poets as an under-
graduate, Lord Byron appeared beside Heidi in the landscape of
my imagination, with his vision of grandeur:
‘Mont Blanc is the monarch of mountains:/ Right: Les Fermes de

Bysshe Shelley, who journeyed with him
on a pilgrimage to the Alps in the summer
of 1816, was similarly inspired (‘Far, far

Blanc appears, – still, snowy, and serene…’).
So, too, was Shelley’s wife Mary, who set
key scenes of her novel Frankenstein against

A grown-up Heidi would feel perfectly at home in each property,
though Les Fermes de Marie is more traditional, a small hamlet of
rustic wooden chalets, built out of reclaimed barns, with a central
dining-room warmed by a big log fire, where delicious local dishes
are accompanied by bonhomie and abundant good cheer.

ROBODRONE … PIONEERING
SOCIAL MEDIA ENABLING ART
BY
NATASHA GRANO
INSTAGRAM NEWS PRESENTER AND INFLUENCER

On February 14, 2019, I had the pleasure of attending the launch of artist
Robodrone’s new, one year long, exhibition of the convention-breaking
artform known as ‘Social Media Enabling Art’ at legendary partners
Fulvio and Cristian’s Contini Contemporary Art Gallery located in
Central London next to iconic Claridges Hotel.

As a leading international social media influencer, I use my platform to


empower people across the world which is why Robodrone’s artwork
speaks so powerfully to me and my audience of over 1M social followers.
Twitter and Facebook have both requested Robodrone’s art on loan in
2018 and 2019.

As a ‘Modern Renaissance’ artist, Robodrone has pioneered a


revolutionary moment in the evolution of social media artform’s purely
‘shoot and share’ photo platforms, such as Instagram, to new ‘Social
Media Enabling Art’ that both empowers and encourages the user/
visitor to create ‘value added’ follow-on art of their own to share
worldwide.

INgrooves, Universal Music’s digital platform division,


has released several of his novel albums including
Hashtag Queens, Download My Heart etc. As well as
the upcoming April 12, 2019 release of ‘Shadowman,
Shamanic Remix’ (iTunes, Spotify and Amazon).
Robodrone’s songs are constructed in a unique, DJ cut-
proof style with lyrics that reflect, express and celebrate the new and ongoing transformative social changes of our times.

I had the pleasure of filming an exclusive episode of my IGTV show “A Day In The Life of Natasha Grano” with the Hashtag Queens throne sculpture
that can be experienced at The Contini Gallery. This is a new artform that invites the visitor to sit on the throne to create novel ‘Instaperformance Art’
that is shared simultaneously, in two dimensions: with people in the
immediate vicinity as well as around the world via selfies and video
snaps multicast onto Social Media accounts of friends and others
for comment and feedback.

People entering the Art Exhibit are no longer visitors – they are
‘Visiting Artists’ instead, who are encouraged and enabled
by Robodrone and the Art Gallery to create and share new
Instaperformance Art as personalised artforms.

The facilitation of user-generated art perfectly reflects and


expresses the way Social Media culture works and expands. Digital
citizens are encouraged to engage, create and share continuously.
The recently published book “Social Media Enabling Art’ by
Robodrone (Apple & Amazon books) with photos by Royal
photographer, Ian Jones, illustrates this very well.
