L’Uomo Vogue, the International Condé Nast magazine dedicated to style and personalities, and The Woolmark Company, the global authority on Merino wool, under the direction of Franca Sozzani Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue and UN Ambassador of Goodwill, are proud to announce a special collaboration. Marking the historic connection between Australian woolgrowers and the Italian fashion industry, the initiative highlights two special occasions: the launch by L’Uomo Vogue of a special Australian issue dedicated to Australian heritage and top personalities, featuring award-winning Cate Blanchett and Baz Luhrmann on the cover as well as the 50th anniversary of the Woolmark logo, the brand symbolising quality wool.

 

As part of this celebration of style and talent, World Wide Wool, a unique and unprecedented event was held on March 27th in Sydney. "An Artful Thread Between Fashion and Style" opened in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, an exhibition curated by Franca Sozzani. The exhibition encompassed portraits of Australian personalities from the L'Uomo Vogue March monographic issue, dedicated to Australia.  Under the artistic direction of Franca Sozzani, a collection of amazing photos of Australia’s most influential names in fashion, design, art, music, economy and public life, by the most important photographers, were exhibited to capture the multi-faceted Australian identity.

The exhibition was accompanied by a shopping night dedicated to Australian wool, with special in-store events throughout Syndey's most prestigious shopping district.  The windows of the most important flagship stores displayed  photographs from L’Uomo Vogue archives, with the intent to create an exclusive and extraordinary “street photo exhibition” dedicated to fashion and Merino wool.

The décor combines classical and modern fixtures and furniture, including items by designers such as Philippe Starck, Ferruccio Laviani, Michele De Lucci and Giancarlo Fassina. Large floor to ceiling windows flood the room with natural light, complementing the chic interiors.

 

The menu concept is driven by high quality and its aesthetic approach to presentation. Vogue Café Kiev will offer customers one of the largest collections of vintage wines in the City, services of a professional sommelier, 'haute cuisine weeks' from celebrity chefs, as well as the latest issues of Vogue magazine from all over the world.
