Yesterday, I had the utmost privilege and pleasure to attend the launch of CANTURI‘s new collection: Odyssey. The name is befitting as the luxe Australian fine jewellery label has been showcasing exquisite collections and taking wearers on a journey of modern sophistication and splendour for over two decades. For the longest time, I didn’t realise that CANTURI originated in Sydney, because designer Stefano Canturi has amassed such an international and celebrity following, Oprah, Nicole Kidman, and Linda Evangelista are just some of Canturi’s clients. Inspired by the perfect fusion of art and heritage, Stefano’s impeccable designs, having both contemporary and heirloom characteritics, demonstrate CANTURI’s fine craftsmanship and the designer’s sound knowledge of proportion, balance and glamour. “To be a good jewellery designer“, he says, “You also need to be a good sculpturer and an engineer.”

After the bijoux decadence, Lady Melbourne and I headed to the Grand Hyatt for the Media Lunch of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. A delectable lunch was served: tender sirloin steak with velvety bone marrow butter and layers of smooth dark chocolate married with salted caramel. I eyed off an unattended dessert more than once. Sitting between Christine Barro and Alpha 60‘s Alex Cleary, we were introduced to the Faces of MSFW who are just as excited about next week as we are. And boy, are we in for a treat! Which MSFW events are you attending next week?
