Auguste Launch HOME Collection with Charlee Fraser

Photographed on location at Yuraygir National Park with Steven Chee, Auguste’s HOME collection was inspired by the Australian landscape and is an ode to Australia’s landscapes.

“When I designed this collection (long before COVID-19) I was really inspired by the Australian landscape and as the collection took shape it became an ode of sorts to this incredibly special land.

When it came time to shoot the campaign we were so excited bring the collection to life in our own backyard and when we heard Charlee Fraser had returned home and we could finally work together, it felt like all the stars had aligned.

With everything that has happened, we’ve found a silver lining, being grounded has reminded us of what we have right here at home. I think Australians are really starting to appreciate more than ever the magical land we inhabit, and this collection is a celebration of that. There really is no place like home.” Ebony Eagles - Founder and Creative Director Auguste the Label

Auguste is a boutique brand founded by Ebony Eagles with a clear vision: to transcend trends and instead design future vintage pieces that will be loved for seasons to come. At home on the east coast of Australia, the brand crafts its ranges to seek out the sun with effortlessly elegant shapes, nostalgic prints and a contemporary coast twist.

A proud member of the 1% For The Planet movement and One Tree Planted, Auguste is built on a foundation of environmental consciousness with the core belief that all fashion businesses should play a part in designing the best version of the future. At Auguste, it’s not just about the clothes and it never has been. We’re trying to create a positive change through our brand and raise as much awareness as we can in the process.

The collection launched Sunday June 28th & is exclusively available at Augustethelabel.com

"It Doesn't Taste Like This at Home" Icebergs announces return date & bookings

Restaurateur Maurice Terzini and Icebergs Dining Room and Bar celebrate the return of both, the iconic venue of 18 years and the hospitality industry. Maurice has created a campaign “It doesn’t taste like this at home” to reintroduce Sydney to dining and promote our industry reopening.

“Over the past two months not only Sydney, Australia, but the world, has seen the hospitality industry rise from the ashes, providing services that have allowed us to live and enjoy as much as we can with life in isolation. During this time, we have been spoilt with takeout and delivery options of outstanding products changing the landscape forever. However regardless of zoom interactive classes, livestreams, pick up or delivery, one thing no one has been able to recreate is the social energy of the environment and engagement that exists within restaurants, bars, clubs and cafes, no matter how hard we try, ‘it doesn’t taste like this at home’”. Maurice Terzini

In anticipation for our opening we will be launching a special week in Icebergs history. A moment in time for you and your guests to spoil yourselves and join the lucky few along with the team at Icebergs to celebrate the return of dining in one of the world’s most beautiful dining rooms. A limited number of seats will be available to pre purchase and book for both the lunch and dinner service each day for the first week only. This will allow dining guests to secure a table now before our return.

“I can’t wait to bring back some of the Icebergs classics celebrating our seasonal producers that we have built long-standing relationships with over the years for everyone to enjoy”. Alex Prichard. Launching a greatest hits Icebergs menu, Head Chef Alex Prichard will feature some of our all-time favourites that everyone’s missed, featuring courses such as; Beef Tartare mixed tableside, Koshihikari Risotto, Blue Swimmer Crab, Orange & Espelette, Pan Roasted Blue Eye Trevalla, Black Garlic, Radish & Lovage and our famous Signature Salt Crusted, Boneless Rib Eye. Supplements will be available to order on the day including a Caviar Selection, Lobster Spaghetti for the table or adding Black Truffle to your Rib Eye. A specially created wine list prepared by Head Sommelier Gabrielle Webster.

We are as excited as you are about the prospect of reopening our beautiful venue after being closed over the last few months. Due to major roadworks taking place on Notts Avenue, we have made the decision to reopen on the first day of August and can’t wait to see you all again.

ABSOLUT ART X SHANTELL MARTIN

ARTIST SHANTELL MARTIN IN COLLABORATION WITH ABSOLUT ART FOR SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS

The internationally renowned artist launches exhibition at MCM House, an open conversation with Biennale Artistic Director Brook Andrew and live light installation.

Shantell Martin and Absolut Art launched in Australia this February 2020 with a pop-up exhibition at MCM House, a live light performance at Icebergs Dining Room and Bar and a talk in conversation with Martin and interdisciplinary Australian artist Brook Andrew during the week of Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

London-born, New York-based artist Shantell Martin is an LGBTQ+ activist, who explores identity, intersectionality, and play in her signature black and white drawings that she often stages as performances for a live audience. Collaboration is key to her practice, which has included partnerships with the New York City Ballet, Kendrick Lamar, and Kelly Wearstler.

The partnership continues Absolut’s 39-year history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community and involves global programming during LGBTQ+ events in Australia, Sweden, and the United States, with an accompanying print collection on AbsolutArt.com.

“It’s a wonderful honour to celebrate PRIDE in Sydney this year! Now more than ever, especially as a queer, woman of colour, and artist, I feel a deep responsibility to use my craft and my voice to connect, celebrate and honour my community.

Globally, I also feel that PRIDE has become something much greater than we could have ever imagined it would have, not even 20 years ago. It gives me hope that the conversation will continue and we will continue to rise, together.” says Shantell Martin.

“I’ve known Shantell for almost 10 years and have always been a huge admirer of her work. Both her practice and drawings explore important themes of intersectionality, identity, and technology, making her one of today’s most important artists and cultural facilitators. Absolut Art is thrilled to be sharing Shantell’s work in Sydney, celebrating not only LGBTQ+ artists and people of colour, but everyone invested in a more inclusive future.” says Michelle Grey, Absolut Art Creative Director.
