Sarah & Sebastian

In this corner of the jewellery world, Sarah & Sebastian are the cutting-edgers.

New Year’s Resolutions have a way of forming themselves, no matter how adamantly you resolve otherwise – that is, consequent to my pre-Christmas devotions to fine jewellery, I have spent the first few weeks of 2014 wearing nothing else (save the odd ghetto fabulous chain). In this corner of the jewellery world, Sarah & Sebastian are the cutting-edgers – longtime masters of clean lines and fuss-free companions to any permutation of personal style, immune to any erosion by seasonal trends, never too far from the everyday and as easy going as the pair of them are, handmaking their treasures by the sea. Only these guys would come up with tiny Queen Bee crowns for your fingers.

Clearly, I’m a fan.

A while ago, Pierre, Hayley, Nadine, and Koh spent a morning dragging me away from the jewellery table to get dressed and/or actually shoot some photos. Who can blame me? The FRÄULEIN injection range makes me feel like I’m growing up and graduating to the big bad world of finer things. Keeping it real with jeans and leathers, of course. No ball gowns here…

I’ve asked you once, and I’ll ask you again – hairline shiny, or chunky as hell?

Margaret Zhang 章凝 is an Australian-born-Chinese filmmaker, photographer, consultant and writer based between New York and Shanghai. Since establishing her website in 2009, Zhang has gone on to work with global brands including CHANEL, Swarovski, YEEZY, Bulgari, Gucci, MATCHES, Under Armour, and Louis Vuitton in a wide range of capacities both in front of and behind the camera, while completing her Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws at The University of Sydney. Zhang’s directing, photography, and styling has been employed by the likes of VOGUE, L’Officiel, Harper’s BAZAAR, NOWNESS, and ELLE internationally. She has been listed in Forbes Asia’s 30Under30 and TimeOut’s 40Under40, and her work has been recognized as shaping the international fashion industry by the Business of Fashion BoF500 Index for four consecutive years. CNN has identified Zhang as a leading fashion photographer in Asia and ELLE named her the region’s most influential digital voice. She went on to be the first Asian face to cover ELLE Australia. In 2016, she co-founded BACKGROUND, a global consultancy for which she specialises in Western-to-Chinese and Chinese-to-Western cultural bridging for a range of luxury, lifestyle, and brand initiatives. In 2017, she exhibited a series of 39 unseen photographic works as a solo show in Sydney, and premiered her first short film – a 15-minute exploration of her visceral relationship with classical music on both performance and abstract planes – to critical acclaim. In 2018, co-curated the first annual FOREFRONT Summit focused on inter-industry problem-solving at all scales of business. From this king summit, Zhang developed FOREFRONT+ – a round table series of candid conversations covering subject matters of universal concern. In 2019, THE FACE Magazine engaged Zhang as Creative-Director-at-Large for Asia for its relaunch. Zhang is currently working on her first feature film.
