Welcome to the July issue of Style, an issue in which we are celebrating all

things winter.

Let us take you on a tour around the southern hemisphere to check out

the top ski fields. We have the information you need to decide between

Cerro Catedral and Portillo in South America, or Roundhill and Craigieburn

in our own South Island, for your next getaway.

In our home section, we focus on furniture. Georgina McCormack explores

a selection of local and international designs that truly honours the materials

from which these statement pieces are made, while Luci Morris takes us

through a beautiful family home, which owners Peter and Judith Lange

designed around a vision of bringing the family together.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of putting together this issue was

working on our childrenswear fashion shoot – there is something so

refreshing about working with children. Our photographer Charlie Jackson

used the set to create a magical winter wonderland, which brought out the

cheeky nature and playful side of our children – all of whom are related to a

member of the Style team.

Keeping fit mentally and physically in winter can be a challenge, especially

if you are in an office all day. Our wellness writer Elly McGuinness offers

advice to keep you fighting fit in our beauty section. Following this, we look

at essential tips for keeping skin hydrated to ensure you feel your best this

winter.

If you are heading up to the ski fields this winter, make sure to read our

etiquette column on page 81, as no one likes a social faux pas on the slopes.

FIND.

The Cheesecake Shop, the franchise

founded by brothers Warwick and Robert

Konopacki in Sydney 26 years ago, has

opened its first South Island branch at

205A Hills Road, Edgeware. Perfect for

all celebrations; we love their Jamaican

chocolate cake.

Freedom Furniture is re-opening

on Moorhouse Avenue, six years after

the devastating earthquake caused the

destruction of its original Christchurch

store of 15 years, which was located on

the same street.

We’ve just got our hands on some

great basics from Postie+ and are rather

impressed with the organic cotton tees.

Coming in a range of colours, with a choice

of round or V-neck, these are a stylish

staple for any wardrobe.

EXPERIENCE.

Clicquot in the Snow is almost upon us once again, bringing the annual four-day luxury champagne celebration to Queenstown from

Thursday, August 3rd to Sunday, August 6th. Locals and visitors to Queenstown will be offered a chance to toast to winter with the Rata

Long Lunch, Kathryn Wilson fashion show and Cliquot Croquet – the highest game of croquet in the southern hemisphere.

A significant touring exhibition of historically and spiritually inspired works by New Zealand artist Kushana Bush has opened at

Christchurch Art Gallery. Pop in for some cultural indulgence.

Looking for something to get your heart pumping on a cold winter’s day? F45 is a combination of high-intensity interval, circuit and

functional training, condensed in a 45-minute session that changes every day. Tried it, sweated it out and survived at F45 Riccarton

(100 Riccarton Road)!

INDULGE.

The results of the Reader’s Digest annual Trusted Brand survey are out, and for the sixth consecutive year Whittaker’s has taken out the

top award, being voted Most Trusted Brand by surveyed consumers. The family business, which has been making high-quality chocolate

for more than 120 years, was also voted Most Iconic Brand and took out the confectionery category accolade, too.

Have you explored the range of craft beers available in our country? Fillosophy is a ‘craft beer fillery’ at which 36 taps pour an everchanging

array of beers and ciders at 398 Ferry Road, Woolston.

The George Hotel is celebrating its 30th birthday this month; we raise a glass to a Christchurch icon, and its record of exceptional service.

SPEND.

Need some weekend chill inspiration? Take it from

Bella Hadid. In the latest Nike sportswear campaign,

shes wears the iconic Nike Cortez originally released

in 1972.

When winter weekends get long and cold, it might

be time for a splurge. We love the lavish range of

new super-luxe beauty carried by MECCA, including

ARgENTUM La Potion Infinie anti-age cream, packed

full of hydrating, rejuvenating ingredients. Also check

out Rodin’s range of body oils, each formulated to

combat the winter months by nourishing dry areas with

a golden elixir of essential oils. Finally, for targeting tired

eyed, Patchology’s innovative patch technology offers

the ultimate in deep hydration.

We also hear Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® has

launched a new detox mask, the City Smart Double

Action Detox Peel Off Mask. This resurfacing mask

instantly lifts impurities out of the skin, and promotes

the skin’s natural detoxification system for a brighter,

smoother, virtually poreless-looking complexion.

With a vision of providing New

Zealanders with market leading, functional

and top quality showerware and tapware,

Felton still proudly designs and finishes

each and every product right here in

Aoteroa. At the forefront of innovation,

Felton’s sleek and modern designs are

focused on the end user, combining

technologies with aesthetic appeal and

the Axiss range is no exception.

Functional, thoughtful and beautiful, the

Axiss range changes how we use our sink

inspired by organic curves, Axiss delivers a

new level of usability and flexibility.

The Axissrange is available in a number

of finishes –chrome, brushed nickel and

electroplated matte black. The brushed

nickel and matte black are not only stylish

but practical as their resistance to water

spots makes them low maintenance.

If you’re after a little more functionality,

the Axiss Touch Sink Mixer features low

sensitivity, capacitive touch technology –

which means there is no need to touch

the handle with dirty hands. The cold

only touch activation makes it safe for

children to use as there is no chance of

accidental hot water scalding and the

2 second water delivery provides an

efficient stream of cold water for quick

and frequent tasks.

CERRO CATEDRAL, ARGENTINA

Located in Argentina’s Patagonia Lake District, Cerro

Catedral is one of the largest ski areas in South America,

with stunning scenery in both the village and on the

mountain itself. Translating to Cathedral Hill, its name

was presumably inspired by the dramatic rock peaks

that crown the mountain’s summit. It has diverse terrain

offerings – from tree skiing to a number of off-piste

or unmarked options – across its 607 skiable hectares,

providing slopes for every level of confidence and

experience. It’s also one of the most developed ski areas

in South America, making it a good choice for families or

travelling groups.

Terrain: 17% of its trails are beginner runs, 35% serve

intermediates, and a large portion caters to more skilled

skiers: 26% of runs are advanced, and 22% are for

experts only.

Après-ski: There is no lack of nightlife, with a diverse

range of bars, restaurants, dance clubs and even a casino.

There are also a variety of lodging options, meaning the

mountain can cater to all tastes and budgets.

When to go: June to mid-October

Level: Family

Details: www.catedralaltapatagonia.com

THREDBO RESORT, AUSTRALIA

Situated in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales,

Thredbo Resort caters to everyone due to its extensive

mix of trails, which vary from beginner slopes to some

of the longest runs in Australia. Thredbo is known for

its family-orientated feel and offers a special ski-school

service for children; allowing them to gain confidence on

the slopes in safety, while also giving them the chance

to make friends and play. Family programmes are also

available, as are snowboarding lessons and snow biking

experiences. The resort also offers the largest snowmaking

system in the southern hemisphere, guaranteeing

a long and reliable ski season.

Terrain: There are over 50 trails spanning nearly 202

hectares of skiing, including terrain parks for skiers and

riders of all levels.

Après-ski: Thredbo is a full-service resort complete with

lodging accommodation, shopping, and many restaurant

options. There are also lots of nightlife options, including

the famous Schuss Bar which features live comedy, highenergy

music, and themed ‘locals’ nights.

When to go: End of July to mid-September

Level: Family

Details: www.thredbo.com.au

PORTILLO, CHILE

Located two hours north-east of Santiago and just 5km

from the Argentinian border, Portillo is often the first

place that comes to mind for southern hemisphere

skiing. Portillo is one of the oldest resorts in the area,

and part of its rich history includes hosting several World

Championship skiing competitions – the only southern

hemisphere country to do so. The trails tend to be

uncrowded, and Portillo’s high elevation – 3310m at

the highest point – lends to dry powder that makes for

some great turns.

Terrain: Portillo is also accessible by heli-skiing,

and its 526 skiable hectares are broken down as 15%

beginner, 30% intermediate, 30% advanced, and

25% expert.

Après-ski: Portillo does not have a resort town. The

focus is on skiing, and skiing only, which is one of the

reasons it’s a popular place for world-class skiers to

train. Portillo’s main lodging option is the famous yellow

hotel, which is often heralded as a hallmark of the

mountain.

When to go: June to mid-October

Level: Family/Experienced

Details: www.skiportillo.com

TREBLE CONE RESORT, NEW ZEALAND

Situated on Lake Wanaka, Treble Cone is the largest

ski area in the South Island. The terrain covers two

basins – the Saddle and Home Basin, with fans of steep

and challenging terrain that Treble Cone claims as some

of the best in the country. Although Treble Cone has

quite the reputation for hardcore skiers, the resort

has recently made an effort to appeal to families. With

plenty of childcare facilities and kids clubs available,

parents can tackle the steep slopes while children are

taken care of.

Terrain: 550 hectares, with beginner slopes covering 10%,

intermediate 45%, and advanced 45% of the skiable area.

Après-ski: While Treble Cone does not have its own

town or village, Wanaka is only a short drive away. On

the field, there is the Base Lodge Sun Deck which offers

made-to-order burgers and pizzas, as well as a café, bar,

and sun deck. The base also houses a medical centre,

snow sports school, snow rental shop, childcare centre

(3-6 years), and retail shops.

CRAIGIEBURN VALLEY, NEW ZEALAND

Located in the heart of New Zealand’s Southern Alps,

Cragieburn Valley Ski Area is not for the faint-hearted,

or even beginners for that matter, as the terrains are

intended for experienced skiers and riders. Cragieburn

Valley is varied, exciting, and challenging with the

infamous 600m vertical descent of Middle Basin –

which is often compared to a heli-skiing experience –

accessible by way of an easy traverse from the tow.

Terrain: Covers 400 hectres and is split almost equally

between intermediate and expert, with a breakdown

of 0% beginner, 55% intermediate, and 45% advanced/

expert.

Après-ski: With a classic club field, entertainment

options are relaxed and simple. The day lodge, located

near the top of the mountain, serves hot food and fresh

coffee. There are two overnight lodges – Koroheke and

Matuhi – tucked away just below treeline.

When to go: July-October

ROUNDHILL, NEW ZEALAND

Roundhill is a family ski field with stunning views of

Aoraki Mt Cook, the Southern Alps and Lake Tekapo.

The learners’ slope is fantastic for little ones as it features

a platter lift and two beginners’ rope tows, while, for

intermediate skiers, there are two T-bars that provide

access to trails with lots of natural dips and curves.

If you are seeking something more adventurous,

Roundhill is home to Australasia’s largest vertical drop

at a vertigo-inducing 783m, and also plays host to the

longest and steepest rope tow in the world.

Terrain: Its size has increased significantly in recent

years from 60 to approximately 600 skiable hectares,

making it one of the largest New Zealand ski resorts.

This expansion was brought about by the addition of

the record-breaking Heritage Express Rope Tow, and has

also allowed for the incorporation of an advanced area

to what was a beginner/intermediate field.

Après-ski: The ski field facilities and services are

somewhat basic, but more than adequate for the

essentials. The day lodge has a licenced café, and many

visitors bring along a chilly bin with their own food and

drink and set up deck chairs. The Von Brown Hut is a

fabulous spot for après-ski drinks.

The Remarkables easily claims the top spot when it

comes to family skiing in the southern hemisphere, due

to its relaxed Kiwi atmosphere and less commercialised

feel. This laid-back feeling extends to the less-crowded

ski field and makes it a great environment in which to

learn the basics and gain confidence. There are a wide

range of activities on offer, including snow tubing, and

as an added bonus, kids under the age of 10 get to ski

for free. What’s more, The Remarkables gets better

snow cover than its southern neighbours, ensuring a

long season and plenty of opportunities for experienced

skiiers and snowboarders to make the most of the

advanced trails and off-piste areas.

The beautiful surroundings make for a great way to

spend time off the slopes as well, with the mountain

range bordering the picturesque Lake Wakatipu, and

the ski field being less than a 45 minute drive from

Queenstown.

For the ultimate memorable experience, make the most

of the heli-skiing opportunities The Remarkables offers

by taking in the scenery from above before taking to the

slopes.

Terrain: The ski field covers 220 hectares, split into 30%

beginner runs, 40% intermediate, and 30% advanced.

Après-ski: There is a fully-licensed café, bar and Snack

Shack on the snow. Keep an eye out for events over the

season and the stunning village of Queenstown is a mere

20-minute drive away.

When to go: July-October

WHAT

PEOPLE

WANT!

Lynette McFadden

Real estate has its share of

‘I want’ moments: I want a sale,

I want a listing, I want that listing,

I want this price. The list is a long

one, demands coming in from

every participant and stakeholder

involved in the process of buying

and selling real estate.

Consultants who want so many things matched

by owners who want one very specific thing, and

that’s More! This is usually followed by the word

‘Money’. It’s a simple enough request, but like all

simple matters, the devil is in not just the detail

but the delivery.

The words I don’t hear enough of are, I will:

I will do what it takes, I will work longer,

harder, smarter, putting your (the clients)

interests over my own.

I will keep in touch and communicate in a

consistent and transparent manner, say the

Harcourts Gold Business Owner

Harcourts NZ Inspirational Women Ambassodor

good and the bad, not just the sanitized and the

sloppy. I will turn up on time and market your

home with flair and intelligence, chasing every

lead till it goes no further.

Now some ‘I wills’ from owners.

I will take an interest in your recommendations

on how to get the best result. I will have my

home presented in a manner that will attract

buyers and their attention, and if I’ve got it

wrong I will take on board what you say.

I will provide you with accurate and truthful

details about my property and I will not say there

is insulation everywhere when there is not, or

the underfloor heating is throughout the entire

house when it stops at the living room.

Here are some buyer ‘I wills’.

I will let you know if I no longer want to keep my

appointment so you don’t have to spend time

and energy on research or drive for miles. I will

give you the best brief I can so that when I ask

you to show me three-bedroom townhouses

but I buy a two-bedroom villa you understand.

Like everyone else, as a stakeholder in this

relationship I want things as well.

I want the business I’ve worked two decades on

and in to stand for something.

I want people to be proud to work for it.

I want to lead with integrity and inspire standout

performance.

What are my ‘I wills’?

I will work as long and as hard as it takes

everyday.

I will provide consistent, inspirational leadership,

anchored with a commitment to the needs of

our team and our clients. And I’ll try to balance

the 50 balls I’ve got up in the air without falling

over, losing the plot or being hit in the head by

one. Not easy!

It’s good

to be home

Tony Jenkins CEO of Harcourts

Holmwood talks about their new

purpose built real estate office on

Ilam Road

Q&A

“My vision is to make this

office, this team and this

franchise the very best in

real estate”

So let’s start with asking about why the old

building had to go:

The earthquake created a significant amount of damage

to the building which compromised its functionality as

well as falling below the safety standards we believed

necessary for our clients and our team. Once the decision

was made we started the long process of what would

best suit the needs of our clients and our staff. In some

ways this was a battle between what we knew we needed

and tried to look into the crystal ball to future proof things

as much as we could.

Given that you had really a blank canvas to work

from for the new building, what was your vision of

what it should offer?

I have always believed that the client should come first in

business and so central to our thinking was what can we

do to make the sometimes stressful process of selling or

buying a property easier? With that in mind we knew there

had to be several non negotiables: access had to be easy

to see a Sales Consultant or attend an auction. Auctions

are a cornerstone of our business and I was determined to

have a quality auction room as part of the new building. It

had to be a friendly place and that is why, we will have a

café on site so our clients can have a coffee and discuss

their property needs or come upstairs and meet in one of

our customised meeting rooms to chat in private with a

Consultant. My vision is to make this office, this team and

this franchise the very best in real estate.

So how is this building going to help you

achieve that?

Of course a building by itself can achieve nothing, but with

the team we have, and the state-of-the-art technology

we have invested in, I firmly believe we have the basis


for future growth. We want to add further experienced

Real Estate Consultants as well as select a number of

new sales consultants who wish to take advantage of

what Holmwood provides. Being the dominant real estate

company in this area gives us a special responsibility to do

our very best for our clients and we are very mindful of the

need to look after everyone that enters our building.

And the team is benefiting from the new office?

Great question and the short answer is a resounding ‘yes’.

We have worked so hard to give each consultant the very

best resources to achieve their best. So many quality offices,

meeting rooms, a stunning staffroom as well as an amazing

Boardroom with built in presentation and video capability.

Tell us Tony, what are your plans going forward?

Well while I am so excited about having seen Ilam 2

change from a somewhat unwelcoming building, to this

amazing structure I feel my plans for the future have just

started. Beyond that, it is, as always, about the client and

I am driven to continue to provide the very best for them.

So social media, digital marketing, and our revamped

website help us continue to enhance communication and

information. However, I would be hard pushed to give up

on my core belief that the best real estate is conducted

when clients meet with a Consultant face to face.

So if one was interested in getting into real estate

or understanding what’s involved, what do they

need to do?

There is so much happening throughout our five offices

I am keen to attract the very best people in and out of

real estate to join the team. It was with that in mind that

we have decided to hold a Careers Evening on the 12 th

of July focused specifically on women who are returning

to the workforce or are looking to enhance their life

opportunities by running their own business. For some

who prefer a less public path, I am always available for

a quiet chat which I would always treat as confidential.

The Veuve Clicquot’s Hôtel du Marc in

Reims, France, has a somewhat of a legendary

reputation. It was originally the home of

Madame Clicquot, the 27-year-old widow

who transformed the Champagne Maison

the setting of many illustrious parties over

the past few centuries. To be a guest at this

hotel is by invitation only. However, for a

Despite being reluctant to build, these homeowners have

achieved a beautiful end result. Luci Morris takes us inside.

STYLE | home 25

P

eter and Judith Lange’s home is bold and

compelling, as well as generous and inviting.

From the outside in, the home’s strong lines

intersect and create new shapes, whilst colours

and textures interact in ways that are refreshing,

sophisticated and creative.

For the couple, building from the ground

up was not something they had planned on

doing, in either the near or distant future. Peter

explains that their “1970s red brick house didn’t

flow. The layout was ‘higglety pigglety’ having

been added onto several times.” In spite of this,

they had been in the house for several years and

in the leafy hillside neighbourhood of Cashmere

for over a decade – and had no intention of

moving or building.

The earthquake of February 2011 shook up

life as they knew it, damaging the family home

beyond repair. Reluctantly, the couple undertook

the challenge of building a new home for

themselves and their teenage daughters.

With the option to design-and-build and get

exactly what they wanted, they elected to build

with Benchmark Homes. “Going into it, we had a

reasonable idea of what we wanted,” says Peter,

“a family home with large open-plan living that

would capitalise on views up the valley.”

Using an architect through Benchmark

Homes, the Langes finally got to see their ideas

materialise. “That was the most exciting part,”

says Peter, “We knew what we wanted, but we

needed someone else to visualise and configure

it for us. It was an ‘oh wow’ moment.”

STYLE | home 27

“The home has focal points that bring us all back together.”

– homeowner Peter Lange

With a vision for the house now clear in

their minds, the thing they hadn’t planned on

doing now presented itself as a opportunity to

create their dream home: a home replete with

warmth and personality, and bursting with

those “oh wow” moments.

Over the next year, the 320sqm twostorey

house, comprising five or six bedrooms

and three bathrooms, took shape. When it

came to the exterior, Peter explains, “we

ummed and ahhed over the cladding; but in

the end we went with Plan A: half cedar and

half Rockcote cladding system.” The horizontal

cedar boards wrap around the front of the

house, tucking neatly into the white Rockcote

cladding – the configuration achieving a

perfect balance of contrasting materials and

tones. With a backdrop of hills and trees, this

home has a commanding presence.

Of the details that make this home

compelling, project manager Brayden McGuire

remarks on the “oak flooring that leads you

through the entranceway and into the familyliving

area”, and commends the “stunning”

oak veneer beams, which offer definition

and distinction to the living spaces on the

ground floor, whilst drawing the eye upwards.

Between these beams, a staircase with glass

balustrades leads upstairs, the glass folding

around the corner to frame a bridge that

overlooks the comings and goings below – the

combination epitomising the ingenuity behind

the home’s design.

Brayden also mentions the interesting

internal upstairs window: with its bi-fold cedar

shutters, it bursts through the patterned

wallpaper to create a connection with the

living spaces below – a further example of the

innovative and charming ways that spaces interact.

As Peter points out, “The home has focal

points that bring us all back together.” The

kitchen-dining-family – Peter’s favourite space

in the house – is the nexus of family life,

comprising many such focal points. The openplan

layout, raised ceiling and feature window

mean the space stretches into other areas of

the home, whilst connecting with the garden.

“It is one big area and has great flow,” he says.

When asked to identify one aspect that

makes this house special, Brayden’s response

speaks of the exquisite, seemingly effortless

combination of many features: “There are so

many details – it is simply a beautiful house,

inside and out.”

Looking back on the process, Peter

emphasises that “it was pretty daunting”, but

that they have come out of it ‘rapt’ with what

has been achieved.

CREATING

GREAT SPACES

Jeff Merrin from Lume

Design and Melissa Merrin

from Interiors by Lume

share their advice on the

importance of collaboration

in creating great design.

Creating a home to be proud of is something

we all aspire to do. A home that reflects

our personality, is a safe haven for our family

and one that we love to share good times

with friends within adds meaning to our lives.

However, many of us are time-poor and benefit

from that little extra va-va-voom a professional

can bring to both the planning and execution of

this daunting task.

Finding the right person to entrust with your

home’s conception can be just as challenging.

Owner of Lume Design, Jeff Merrin, believes

creating great spaces is all about communication

and collaboration.

“We believe that great design is a process

of communication, inspiration, experience

and restraint. Finding a design partner that

can understand what you want and what you

are trying to achieve is key to creating a

great design.”

However, it’s not just the relationship

between client and designer that is key. It is

also the working relationship between the

various industry professionals that can dictate

the end result. “It’s really important to have a

good working relationship with other industry

professionals – ones that share your ethos when

it comes to design. For us, the key to creating a

great design is one that not only celebrates the

architecture but also creates a functional and

liveable space for our clients,” says Jeff.

It helps, then, that award-winning interior

designer and owner of Interiors by Lume,

Melissa Merrin, shares the same ethos. “Some

of the best results we have delivered to our

clients have come from working together. We

understand each other and what the other is

trying to achieve. At the same time, we are

able to challenge each other and bring a fresh

perspective to the other’s design,” says Melissa.

By working collaboratively they create designs

that celebrate the architecture and enhance

the liveability of each space. Jeff brings an

exceptional attention to detail and functionality

while Melissa brings an eye for design and style.

The end result is beautifully crafted design that

combines function with beauty.

“Clients put a lot of trust in us to deliver a

design that meets their needs. Being able to

bring a design to life for them is imperative. You

need to bring your clients on the journey with

you. As a professional you can envisage what

a space can potentially look like but that’s not

always the case for some clients. Giving them

inspiration and sharing ideas is really important

and instrumental to the process.”

No matter whether it’s starting from scratch,

remodelling or upgrading, design starts with a

great relationship. From there, collaboration,

communication and a desire to create spaces

that celebrate your personality and style will

form the heart of all great designs.

The Christchurch North Methodist Church

“ Architecture has the power

to inspire, intrigue, and give

meaning.”

– Mike Callaghan

ARCHITECTURE

MATTERS

As the region rebuilds after the earthquakes, Richard Dalman

believes it is important to reflect on the quality of our new buildings.

In May, the New Zealand Institute of

Architects’ Resene Architecture Awards for

Canterbury bestowed praise and recognition

upon 25 projects from 70 entries throughout

the region. The winning projects varied in scale

from very large and complex to compact and

humble. This month we profile some of the

award winners.

The Arts Centre Clock Tower and Great

Hall was the recipient of a Heritage Award.

The original buildings were designed by

Benjamin Mountfort, with the restoration being

completed by Warren and Mahoney Architects.

The project was extremely challenging, and

Mike Callaghan, a local architect and Canterbury

jury convenor, commented: “Hands-on design

development was required every day as no

detail or space was the same... but the result is

spectacular and thought-provoking.”

Another winner, Burwood Hospital, was a

collaborative project between three practices

– Jasmax, Klein, and Sheppard and Rout. The

outcome is a building focused on staff and

patients’ wellbeing, many of whom have long

rehabilitation stays. The extensive use of

natural lighting, ventilation and views to the

parkland contribute to a homely and comforting

environment.

The Christchurch North Methodist Church

on Harewood Road by Dalman Architects

is a strong but simple form that speaks of its

religious function. The church is deliberately

open and welcomes passers-by to view the

congregation and worship space. The highlevel

tower window serves to not only allow

natural light to pour into the building, but also

to acknowledge the spire of the former church,

which had been a previous local landmark.

Of the commercial winners, a public favourite

is the Christchurch Adventure Park by AW

Architects, which was heroically saved from

the devastating Christchurch fires. It consists of

four simple building forms that create a village

green atmosphere within the forest. Black metal

cladding, pine plywood lining, and prefabricated

elements were used to successfully meet the

tight time frame and budget.

A bold entry and Resene Colour Award

winner is Fush, by C. Nott Architects, a fish

’n’ chip restaurant in Wigram. The restaurant

plays on the imagination with the bold use of

blue colour, giving diners an impression of being

underwater.

Each year the Institute recognises significant

buildings of the past with an Enduring

Architecture Award. This year there were two

such awards presented: firstly, the mirror glass

home in Butler Street by Maurice Mahoney;

and secondly, the Templeton Chapel of the

Holy Family by George Lucking. The latter is

not only great architecture in terms of its form

and function, but also in that it provides a

critical place of focus and belonging for the local

community.

The awards aim to show why good

architecture matters in the ongoing

development of New Zealand’s cities, towns,

and communities. In my view, it is clear

from this year’s awards that many inspiring

and unique new structures have been built,

adding great character to our environment. I

will, however, leave the final words to Mike

Callaghan: “Great architecture begins with

strong ideas; it is about creating exceptional

environments for people to live, work, and

play. It is also about joy – that sense of

wonderment you find when you encounter an

uplifting space or discover an unexpected detail.

Architecture has the power to inspire, intrigue,

and give meaning.”

LIFESTYLE

& RURAL

PROPERTIES

Bhudevi Garden

Landscape architect Craig Wilson shares

advice to show how a large property needn’t

become a ‘life sentence’ block.

Dutch Garden, Otahuna Lodge

Part of the enjoyment of working in the residential sphere of

landscape architecture in Canterbury is the opportunity to

work at a range of scales, with an equally wide range of clients.

Projects can range from a spacious lifestyle block in Ohoka to a

pocket-sized urban courtyard in a high-density central-city residential

housing development. An effective landscape plan will see the same

principles and design process applied, regardless of the size of the

land parcel in question. The design elements incorporated at both

ends of the scale can often be similar but utilised to reflect the

differing project requirements and restraints.

Landscape design in a rural context is no less complex than its

urban counterpart but by nature is generally less intensive, with the

design elements and project costs spread over a broad area. A good

understanding of the resulting maintenance requirements must be

evident, or the design aspirations may never be realised.

A useful concept I learned from a cherished design mentor, which

can be applied to keep maintenance levels in check, is that of the

golf course, where the course and its surrounds are broken down

into the ‘green’, the ‘fairway’ and the ‘rough’. This concept is useful

to both organise and describe the resulting spaces and required

maintenance input of a rural landscape design. When applied, these

conceptual areas may look as follows; ‘The Green’: the immediate

area around the house and other key structures, where the design

is of a finer scale with more detailed planting and the highest

maintenance requirement. ‘The Fairway’: a wider area, visually and

spatially connected to the house and still exhibiting elements of

design, but with restrained detail and a reduced maintenance load.

Lastly, ‘The Rough’: the extremities of a property which may only be

seldom viewed or frequented and possibly only consist of lawn and

trees, with mowing and an occasional spray and mulch around them

the only maintenance needed.

It’s pretty evident when you visit a rural property whether or

not the owner has created an environment that matches their

maintenance, skill and budget. Good planning and design can

prevent the lifestyle block from slowly morphing into the often

referred to and dreaded ‘life sentence’ block.

The design elements incorporated at both ends of the

scale can often be similar but utilised to reflect the

differing project requirements and restraints.

Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar

It was a mad obsession that drove Sally and Sam

Hooper to open their very own dumpling bar

and, following months of research and hundreds

of dumpling tastings, Pot Sticker was born.

After eating their way around China – one

dumpling at a time – they found their very own

dumpling masters who could bring generations

of secret recipes back to New Zealand.

Now the master chefs hand-make the dumplings

every morning, preparing locally-sourced

produce – always obsessing about the freshness

and quality of the dumplings we produce.

THE BODY

LAID BARE

Art journalist Anne Hudson has the rare opportunity to explore

masterpieces from the Tate Gallery in London, on exhibition at

the Auckland Art Gallery, until July 16.

If you are visiting Auckland before mid-July,

I recommend a visit to the Auckland Art

Gallery, Toi o Tāmaki. Auckland is very proud

of this institution, a feeling that the nation

should share as it is a beautiful place with

award-winning architecture, and art of both

national and international significance.

The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from

Tate looks at the representation of the nude

body from the nineteenth and twentieth

centuries through to the contemporary era,

and demonstrates how social attitudes and

mores have influenced art throughout different

historical periods.

The earlier work was created for the

pleasure of viewing, while the more

contemporary pieces were created with

the intention of challenging our ideas and

perceptions. Drawing, painting and sculpting

the human body has always been central to

artists’ practice, which makes this exhibition

so interesting. The title of the exhibition

establishes our expectations; we will see

the body, the human form exposed and laid

before us for our titillation and edification.

‘Laid’ has more modern connotations which

are not explicit in this exhibition, but themes

of sexuality, gender, and feminism are an

underlying thread throughout.

Let us start with Lord Frederic Leighton’s The

Bath of Psyche. This beautiful woman is like a

goddess, lightly draped in soft fabric and about

to bathe. She stands in a classical landscape of

Roman columns with her arms raised to create

a sensuous pose, the framing of the painting

designed by the artist to enhance the visual

effect of the work for the viewer.

This woman was created by amalgamating

the most beautiful features of several female

bodies, this Victorian version of image editing

demonstrating the expectations and desires

that governed the depiction of the female form

at that time. What’s more, this beautiful woman

also highlights gender politics of the era, as

she was created originally with only the male

viewer in mind. Nude portraits such as these

served as outlets for gentlemen of the time

to gaze upon the female form without being

improper, while women were not permitted to

view the works. Nowadays, by contrast, men

and women can enjoy this lovely lady together,

highlighting the shift in social and cultural norms

that has occurred since the work was created.

The following room leads us into the

modernist era where the nude body is no

longer depicted in the classical realm but

instead in that of the everyday; the bathroom,

the boudoir. The nude is still a central subject

for these painters, but the sitter is now more

than just a subject, increasingly she is a wife,

a lover, a prostitute, or muse. Through this

personal connection, we are invited into

The Kiss – Auguste Rodin

The Bath of Psyche – Lord Frederic Leighton

Drawing, painting and

sculpting the human body has

always been central to artists’

practice, which makes this

exhibition so interesting.

the private space of the artist and his

subject, and are encouraged to consider

the body more intimately and perhaps

voyeuristically.

Pierre Bonnard paints his wife taking a

bath and Pablo Picasso depicts his lover

Marie Thérèse nude in an armchair, while

Henri Matisse in Draped Nude places his

subject in an exotic Moroccan setting.

The signature work of this exhibition is

Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, the enormous

marble sculpture of two entwined lovers

caught in a moment of passion working

on many levels. Its sheer size is quite

sublime, with the poses of the beautiful

couple simultaneously showcasing strength,

beauty, passion, and vulnerability. The

male, Paolo, is muscular with large feet

and hands which hold the delicate almost

childlike figure of Francesca in a loving

embrace. In doing this, the piece is able to

capture and create from stone a moment

that is fluid, graceful, and tender, a material

so synonymous with being hard, cold, and

impassive.

The exhibition continues with equally

profound pieces that appeal viscerally to

the viewer, while the artists reveal their

souls through their work. This section of

the exhibition is more challenging both

visually and intellectually but time taken

studying the work is rewarding.

The work of artists such as Louise

Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Sir Stanley

Spencer, Willem de Kooning and others

make us aware of the fragility and

complexity of life and love. We are asked

to leave behind our stereotypical ideas of

not only what should constitute a work of

art, but also our social constructs of truth

and beauty.

Through the use of sculpture, abstract

painting, and photography, the artists

turn our accepted notions upside down

and make us think about ourselves and

our own reality, our own bodies and our

perceptions of them.

HEALTHY

HABITS

FOR OFFICE WORKERS

Do you spend a lot of time

sitting? Elly McGuinness

gives us some simple tips

to help us mentally and

physically.

Many careers in the modern world involve

sitting at a desk for lengthy periods. If

you drive to work, you’ll often find yourself in

a similar position throughout your commute,

meaning that your body is spending a large

portion of the day seated and immobile. The

potential negative effects of prolonged sitting

can range from raised blood pressure and

excess abdominal fat to chronic lower back

and hip pain. Follow these eight tips to help

improve your wellbeing and posture.

Take breaks, and plenty of them. Stop

for at least 5-10 minutes every hour and don’t

feel bad for doing so. Overall, you should find

you’re more alert and productive throughout

the day. Do a few simple stretches or go for

a short walk during your breaks in order to get

your body into a different position. If you

have a tendency to work non-stop, set an

alarm on your phone to remind you to get up

each hour.

Drink plenty of water. This will help your

brain to stay alert and will help reduce the

likelihood of making poor nutrition choices

throughout the day. It will also help you to put

the first point into action – if you’re drinking

enough water; you will need to get up for

bathroom breaks at regular intervals!


STYLE | wellbeing 53

If possible at your workplace, consider

setting up a sit-stand workstation so your body

doesn’t remain in a fixed seated position all day.

Get it set up professionally to ensure everything

is at the right level for optimal posture.

Go outside! During at least one of your

breaks during the day, go for a walk outside.

Also consider doing this before and/or after

work. Exposure to sunlight can help boost your

body’s vitamin D production and regulate your

levels of serotonin, the chemical that helps

control your mood, concentration, and sleep

cycle. Go a step further and take a walk amongst

nature if you can.

Aim to regularly incorporate the ‘palms

up’ posture into your day. This can helpful in

combatting the forward-slouching posture that

is so often conducive to tight shoulder and neck

muscles. If your hands are on a keyboard, you

can keep your forearms on your desk, but turn

your palms so they are facing upwards. If you’re

able to, consider closing your eyes for a minute

while you do this, allowing yourself a bit of a

‘mental time out’. Try to find other opportunities

during your day to turn your palms up (or facing

forward if you are standing up).

Plan ahead with healthy snacks such as

fruit, vegetable sticks, hummus, nuts, seeds,

boiled eggs, and even dark chocolate. This will

help reduce the need to rush to the vending

machine or cookie jar at 3pm each day, and will

contribute to your overall health.

If walking or biking to work is not an option

for you, consider parking a few blocks away.

This will help stretch out your legs and give you

the chance to refresh your mind.

Take up pilates or yoga on a regular

basis. Both of these disciplines encourage

an awareness of posture and an activation of

the ‘core’ muscles, which can transfer into an

increased attentiveness to posture while you are

sitting down

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR

HYDRATED SKIN

It’s wintertime and your skin needs some serious TLC.

Words Victoria Tait

Your skin behaves differently in winter. It’s up against the elements and

subjected to colder temperatures, fiercer winds, and low humidity. So, it’s

unsurprising many of us end up with flaky and lacklustre skin. In this issue we

review some of the top products on the market as well as some essential tips

that will help bring your skin back to life.

SWITCH TO A SOAP-FREE, NON-FOAMING CLEANSER

Foaming cleaners can strip your skin of its natural oils. In the winter months,

we need as many of these as possible to keep our PH balance in check.

Soap-free, non-lathering cleansers have a neutral pH, so they don’t disturb

the acidic pH of your skin and are much less drying. We love Mario Badescu

Enzyme Cleansing Gel, it’s suitable for even oily skin types, without being

drying, and it’s a gel texture and is slightly exfoliating. Aesop Purifying Facial

Cream Cleanser is another non-foaming cleaner, which gently cleanses the

skin without completely stripping the surface layer of its natural oils.

INCLUDE SOME GENTLE EXFOLIATION

A little mild exfoliation can actually help dry skin. This is because it removes

the build-up of dead skin cells that are blocking the moisturising ingredients

from getting through. We would recommend KORRES Beauty Shots Kiwi

Mild Exfoliating Scrub – a mild exfoliate infused with a natural blend of

energising kiwifruit, orange and apple juices, as well as Aloe barbadensis leaf

juice and almond oil. Kate Somervillie ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment

is an award-winning treatment that is purifying and helps to reduce the

appearance of wrinkles right away, while calming and soothing skin.

LOCK IN MOISTURE WITH A CREAM

It’s best to look for an oil-free cream. We love the new Clarins Hydra-

Essentiel range of creams that plump thirsty skin with precious moisture. The

secret of the range is in the use of organic medicinal kalanchoe extract, which

boosts the skin’s hyaluronic acid production.

If you need more intensive hydration try Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive

Hydration Gel. This super hydrating, anti-ageing gel will plump skin and

leave you with a juicy complexion. 16Brand Donkey Milk Cream, which is

actually formulated with 10% donkey milk, is also a must try. This nourishing

moisturiser instantly quenches skin, brightens and awakens dull, fatigued areas.

USE A SERUM AND INVEST IN A NIGHT TREATMENT

Winter skin needs additional care, which a night treatment and serum can

provide. This season we are super impressed with Dermalogica’s Nightly Lip

Treatment. Applied at night this magical cream firms and tightens fine lines

around the lips, adds hydration and restores a barrier. Also worth a try is

the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum – a refreshing, lightweight serum

that restores comfort and radiance to super-thirsty skin, instantly soothing

tightness and irritations, and for use morning and/or evening.

DRINK WATER

We hear this time and time again, because it is true. Keep up your fluids

in the winter months. Drinking plenty of water is the number one key to

hydrated skin.

SUCCESS STORY

SENIOR STYLIST AT VIVO SALON

How did your career as a hair-stylist begin?

I very first started as a hairstylist in a full-time course

at Avonmore. I finished my first year of hairdressing

five weeks early thanks to the support of some

amazing tutors! This is when my drive for success

began.

What made you look at getting into competition

work?

In 2013 and 2014 I won colour technician of the year

and I think this is when I started thinking more about

competitions. Social media played a big role in my

vision and success, I started following all the top hair

dressers in New Zealand and globally. I wanted to

see my name where I was seeing theirs.

What is most rewarding about the competition

work you create?

The most rewarding thing about competition work is

having a vision, planning for it,and then finally seeing it

come to life in front of you. Knowing that your hard

work has brought your vision together.

What is your advice for stylists who are thinking

about getting into competition work?

Do it! Put everything you have into it. If you have an

idea, run with it, and do what you love and what you

think is beautiful.

Describe yourself in three words?

Passionate, determined, focused.

What do you love most about working at Vivo?

Everything! I love how much support I receive from

everyone, I love that Vivo is like a big family, the

training we receive and the opportunities we are

given to grow ourselves.

What does the future hold for you?

I want to grow and learn all I can, and continue having

amazing clients who love coming to see me. I would

like to travel the world more with my competition

work and join artistic teams while creating beautiful

work. One of my biggest goals is to work back stage

at New York Fashion Week. Most of all I want to

make my friends, family and Vivo proud.

A BMW WITH

POWER AND POISE

Motoring writer Ross Kiddie spends some time behind the wheel

of the brand new five-series.

THE SPECS

PRICE: BMW 530d, $144,800

DIMENSIONS: Length, 4936mm;

width, 1868mm; height, 1479mm

CONFIGURATION: Six-cylinder,

rear-wheel-drive, 2993cc, 195kW,

620Nm, eight-speed automatic

PERFORMANCE: 0-100km/h, 5.7sec

FUEL USAGE: 4.7l/100km

Cyclone Cook was doing its darnedest to

drench Christchurch but there was little

choice, I had to make a journey to my mother’s

country home.

The car I was driving was BMW’s new fiveseries

– the 530d to be exact – and it was the

perfect vehicle for the wet conditions, offering

the poise and control you can get only with

quality engineering.

As it turned out, the further west I went

the drier the roads became, but that mattered

little as the new five-series is a car that you can

drive much the same wet or dry. Yes, the 530d

has mammoth power outputs – 195kW and

620Nm – but such is the way it puts power to

ground, and the superb traction control devices,

that there is little fear that grip in any situation

would be lost.

The 530d has a high level of specification

for comfort and convenience in addition to

the aforementioned safety aspect. It sells at

$133,900 in standard form, but with BMW’s

long list of optional extras, the test car hits

the road at $144,800, with some of the

specification items including an M-Sport

package – consisting of 20in wheels, dynamic

damper control and special brakes. While it’s

quite an outlay, you do get a lot of car for the

cost.

For one, the BMW five-series is big; at almost

5m it sits squarely in the large luxury car market

and has all of the on-board elements to cocoon

its occupants in elegance and opulence, while

imparting a sporty feel from behind the steering

wheel.

Under the bonnet sits a 2993cc, straight sixcylinder,

turbocharged diesel engine. Not only

does the engine stand out for its high power

and torque figures, but the level of refinement

and smoothness is most un-diesel-like, as it is

immensely quiet at all speeds. It is also a freerevving

engine; a lot of the latter is due to the

never-ending supply of gearbox ratios.

The engine is paired with a silky-smooth

eight-speed transmission. One of the aspects

which impressed me the most was the

undetectable gear shifts; while the rev counter

flicks back and then forward at the point of

change, the transmission itself is so clean at

shift-point there is no feel.

As you would expect, the driver can take

control over the shift process through steering

wheel-mounted paddles, and there are also

sport and comfort drive management protocols

which the driver can use to set up the vehicle

for any particular drive route.

With the strong torque figures and the

area at which maximum torque is reached

(2000rpm) there is a strong feeling of urgency

within the engine, the five-series in this form

will lunge to 100km/h from a standstill in 5.7sec

and will make a highway overtake – 80km/h-

120km/h – in 3.8sec.

These figures don’t come at the cost of fuel

waste. BMW claims an amazing 4.7-litre per

100km (60mpg) combined cycle rating for the

big six, although I’ll have to be excused for

a 6.9l/100km (41mpg) figure during testing

time. The trip computer also lists a 5l/100km

(56mpg) instantaneous reading at 100km/h

which, taking into account my heavy foot, are

spectacular figures.


STYLE | motoring 63

At highway speed, the 530d glides with quiet

motion. Even with low-profile tyres the ride is

fabulous, the suspension soaking up the uneven

surfaces and making it hard to detect the jiggle

often associated with stiff sidewalls.

As you would expect with BMW, drive is

channelled rearwards and because of the natural

handling characteristics of rear-wheel-drive

there is a neutral handling sensation. Taking into

account the quality of feel through the steering

wheel, the 530d feels biased towards sporty,

but we are talking about a luxury vehicle, and

the combination is sheer brilliance.

If you also add in the punch from up front,

the 530d is an amazing touring car. It dispenses

distance with ease and sips fuel until the point

at which the driver is ready to launch forwards.

It is also an easy car to drive at city speeds;

the cockpit is loaded with clever electronic

functions to make it manoeuvrable in tight

confines, and if that metered car park has

always been a navigational challenge, the 530d

will park automatically for you at the touch of a

button.

It’s impossible not to be smitten with the

new five-series, as it builds on the reputation of

its predecessors but adds in an improvement

factor that’s going to be hard to eclipse when

the next generation rolls around, leaving me with

the question – how good can future cars get?

IN A WORLD

OF ITS OWN

If you’re looking for a casual, family-friendly place

to go for dinner, look no further than Embers.

Words Bridget Rutherford Photography Charlie Jackson

have to admit, when I heard the restaurant was part of The

I Papanui Club, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But upon arrival, it

was hard to miss the modern two-storey building, lit up with an

impressive large glass lighting display inside that can be seen from

Sawyers Arms Road.

It opened just over a year ago and sits alongside the club’s

other facilities, including bars, a carvery and a fitness centre. But

you wouldn’t know it when visiting Embers – it seemed to be in

a world of its own.

When we were seated, we opened our menus to an

impressive array of Argentinian-inspired options. And while there

were vegetarian dishes, meat really took centre stage. For the

entrée, I went with the prosciutto and manchego filled pastry

empanadas, with wood-fired capsicum romesco.

As we waited for our entrée to arrive, we were able to watch

the chefs work their magic in the open-plan kitchen. From

looking at the menu, it was difficult to decide what main to

choose, given the options.

The friendly waitress informed us the most popular choices

were ‘From the Pit’, where you could choose from beef, pork

or lamb cooked over the fire, served with duck fat roasted

potatoes, vegetable medley, with house salad, chimichurri and

red wine jus.

But we couldn’t go past the mains. I opted for the venison

with smoked garlic kumara whip, fava beans, candied bacon with

blueberry and shiitake mushroom jus.

The venison was tender and paired well with the kumara

whip. The candied bacon was a nice touch, and added a bit of

sweetness.

My dining partner ordered the grain-fed Wakanui ribeye, with

duck fat roasted potatoes, chorizo, chickpeas, wilted spinach,

smoked tomato chutney and onion rings.

As we ate, more patrons from the club’s bar filtered through

to have dinner in the restaurant creating a vibrant atmosphere.

When it came to dessert, we couldn’t look past the affogato.

It was Embers’ take on the dessert, which featured coffee and

vanilla bean ice cream, served with a Kahlua shot, espresso and

honeycomb.

Its presentation was excellent, served in a cocktail glass with a

shot of Kahlua and espresso to pour over the ice cream.

It was a nice way to top off a pleasant dining experience.

All in all, Embers had a nice, social atmosphere, and was a

good place to go for a laid-back meal out. The meals are on

the larger side, however, so make sure you’re hungry. Embers is

open from Wednesday to Sunday each week.

FROM TOKYO TO CHRISTCHURCH

If you didn’t catch it on Master Chef, matcha is the new supreme ingredient that is

taking the western world by storm. The finely ground powder is that of specially

grown and processed green tea. And there’s good news for matcha lovers in

Christchurch as they can now sample the Japanese flavour throughout the city.

Immerse yourself in matcha tea at T2 (Westfield Riccarton), where there’s everything

from powder pouches to a full green tea-making kit. For a flavour hit, we recommend

matcha soft-serve ice cream at Sushi Soldier (Little High Eatery) or the matcha waffles

MORE THAN

MEETS THE EYE

Whether for a ribeye steak or drinks with friends, The Racecourse

Hotel is a Christchurch institution.

Words Victoria Tait Photography Charlie Jackson

Situated on Racecourse Road adjacent to Riccarton

Racecourse, The Racecourse Hotel & Motor Lodge

is famous in Canterbury for its daily roast meals and

racetrack connections. However, there’s even more on

offer at this privately owned business. This complex includes

accommodation, two bars and a restaurant, which each have

their own look.

The well-established restaurant and bar Hoofbeats is often

frequented by racehorse owners, trainers, jockeys and members

of the public alike. It has a welcoming family atmosphere

and caters for children with an excellent play area and an

extensive children's two course menu from $10 – healthy and

affordable. The bistro’s comprehensive menu includes the bestselling

ribeye mignon steak garnished with grilled bacon and

mushroom sauce, and the chocolate gateau served with fruit,

ice-cream and cream, all at very modest prices. There is also a

specials board that changes daily. The bar offers an extensive

wine list, spirits, as well as a large range of local and imported

beer. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner: pop in for breakfast

on a Sunday then head over to the markets at the racecourse.

Feel like a drink before dinner? Or an after-work catch-up?

The sports bar offers TAB, gaming machines, pool table and

live music on a Friday night and race days. Alternatively, there’s

the Carbine Lounge and Bar, the most recent addition to the

complex.

Developed in 2011, the lounge bar provides a casual, homeaway-from-home

atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor

areas. It’s a perfect place to meet friends and family for a drink

with the option of going next door for a meal. It is also available

for functions, both private and corporate.

If you have visitors coming from out of town, the hotel and

motor lodge offers 46 studio units, with a rural atmosphere

that fits perfectly with the racecourse theme. The rooms are

serviced daily, have Sky TV, a phone, hairdryer, tea, microwave,

and coffee services. There is ample parking and also a

playground for children.

The Racecourse Hotel & Motor Lodge prides itself on value

for money, family-friendly services and looking after the seniors

of our community with daily roast specials. See for yourself,

and make a date – perhaps to catch the Grand National

Racing Carnival Week. Starting August 5th, the grand finale is

The Racecourse Hotel & Motor Lodge New Zealand Grand

National Steeplechase on August 12th.

LOUIS CHAMPAGNE BAR

OPENING

Like a scene from a movie, bystanders watched admiringly as

elegant feet trod with refined steps along the red carpet welcoming

Christchurch’s A-listers to the grand opening of the Louis Champagne

Bar. Victoria Street shivered under the swirl of winter’s breezy breath

whilst within, chilled flutes of France’s finest, bubbled and sparkled like

jewels set in a heavenly tiara. The tumult of conversation rose to create

an hypnotic spell, weaving through the gathering, gladdening hearts

as the magic bubbles, gladdened the taste buds. The party was the

perfect welcome to this salon of taste and discernment.

THE GREAT CHRISTCHURCH

ART SHOW 2017

Fabulous art, providing nourishment to slake the soul’s hunger for

refinement, boldly stood before the public at Wigram on a cold

winter’s evening. Opening night of this year’s Great Christchurch Art

Show proved to be an exciting spectacle, as pieces were eagerly

snapped up in the electric atmosphere. As the crowd browsed, they

were inundated with tempting catering as trays of goodies circulated

the room and, at almost every turn, plinths laden with a dazzling variety

of gourmet cheeses, fought with the visual treats for guest’s attention.

What a brilliant party it was!

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

SOUTH ISLAND

The Great Hall was decked out for an occasion of note, the rich

wooden interior glowing warmly in invitation as guests filed in.

Ronald McDonald House South Island (RMHSI) once again hosted

the annual Christchurch Supper Club, an event always eagerly

anticipated. Glasses were topped up by a bottle-wielding aerialist,

dangling gracefully above the crowd, her lissom contortions drawing

appreciative applause. Pulses were starting to quicken and palates

were becoming roused as the mystery of who would be sent to where,

to dine, stoked the mounting excitement. The evening then began,

filled with gastronomic promise.

YOUNGS JEWELLERS

PRE-BALL PARTY

The evening rain, in near horizontal sheets, mocked at the

pedestrians, hapless in their attempts to seek shelter in

New Regent Street. The quaint thoroughfare did though provide

some relief, for those with the appropriate invitation, from the

remorseless elements. The affair to which the brollied folk were

scurrying was a Cancer Society Ball pre - event party, hosted

by Young’s Jewellers. Within the discreetly small boutique,

where the gems of yesteryear twinkle like the stars of tomorrow,

fizzing flutes caressed the lips and tasty temptations lifted the

palates to the sunny place, where the angry winter out on the

cobblestones, is faraway.

STYLE’S GUIDE TO

SKIING

How times have changed. Virginia Mackenzie (née Upham) and friends in

1970 on the slopes above St James Station, North Canterbury.

Avoid potential pitfalls on the slopes

this season with these essential tips for

mountain style and etiquette.

Words Victoria Tait

Whether you’re new to the slopes, or a speed-loving

veteran, there are some unwritten etiquette rules:

• If you want a good park then get up early, no one likes a

pushy driver in the car park.

• Remember, everyone is trying to get up and down the

mountain, so give way, smile, and don’t be aggressive. Karma’s

a bitch.

• Don’t cut in the line for the chairlift – we know that you’re

with someone who’s 20 places ahead and you really had to

pee, but let us tell you now – we don’t really care. Wait your

turn like everyone else.

• It’s okay to share a chairlift with strangers as, chances are, they

don’t really want to talk to you either.

• Give right-of-way to skiers in front of you.

• Help out fallen skiers and, in some way, the universe will

reward you. And you won’t look like a complete wanker.

• A helmet is essential – and on trend.

APRÈS-SKI

• Monochrome is a perennially stylish and safe option, while

orange or yellow neon trousers paired back with a black

jacket is also a classic look. This season, sixties paintbox

colours are on the rise and are guaranteed to get you noticed

in the group.

• Embrace your inner eighties diva and get your hands on

some stirrup pants. They are having a comeback thanks to

Balenciaga, so ensure you pack a pair for on and off the slopes.

• Most ski accommodation is toasty. Don’t only pack cashmere

– lightweight tops for layering are ideal when fireside.

• Don’t pack high heels, please just don’t.

• What’s this season’s trophy après-ski item? A statement coat;

look to for something with an overly extravagant fur collar to

really pack a punch. Wear it; don’t pack it, as it’s likely to take

up an entire suitcase.

• When drinking, do as the previous generation (pictured) did

and swig straight from the bottle. This will minimise takehome

rubbish and confirm someone else’s role as sober

driver... or pilot.
