On the sleek strip of Collins Street is the wonderful temple dedicated to goods and garments of ultimate luxe and design, Cose Ipanema. This emporium, managed by the delightfully stylish Semra Hussein has become temporary home to several of Mr Brown's artworks from his current The Printed Painting series as well as a piece from Chris Orr's Bone Idol suite. Its a fitting marriage of art and fashion.
As well, there is this wonderful sculptural installation by Aly Aitken, Outside In, mingling amongst the racks of fashion
So if you would like to view these works as well as get a fashion fix, pop in to see Sam at
A fantastic new restaurant has appeared in Albert Park, with the charming name of Mon Amour. It is well living up to its name and has become our current food crush. Beautifully presented as a European style delicatessen and wine store, it serves wonderful and interesting breakfast and lunch fare and is open for dining 3 evenings a week. Highly recommended for grabbing a coffee and brunch on the outdoor terrace and watching the Albert Park hustle and bustle trundle by.
