There’s more to the Australian surfing spot than board shorts: residents of Sydney favour a streamlined and sophisticated approach to dressing. Here, three men share their favourite Sydney hangouts and offer their take on the new season.
‘I’ve lived in Sydney for 13 years, and to me this place means warm days and long nights. I like to go surfing in the city as it's very social, but to work on projects I go to my studio in the Southern Highlands. I decompress from travel and the cities that I visit there – I love listening to the wind in the trees. When it comes to my style, I’d say it’s a combination of minimalistic, effortless colour-block luxe brands meets beach goth, crossed with high-tech outdoor adventure wear. And for a great place to visit, there's a hidden outside dining area at my favourite bar, 10 William Street in Paddington. Only a few people know about it – it's a secret within a secret.’ In shot: Bartolomeo wears T-shirt by Jil Sander; and trousers by Yohji Yamamoto.
‘I've lived in Sydney my whole life. I took these photos on the Cahill Expressway above Circular Quay. I think the first time I shot here was for a Vogue magazine story about a French actress seeing Sydney for the first time, so it felt appropriate. It has some of the best views of the harbour while also being above the torrents of tourists below. If you come to Sydney, you have to go to Bar Tapa and order their mezcal martini called a Jamón Over, which is served with a slice of fresh cut jamón. It sounds weird, and it is – but in such an amazing way.’ In shot: Jake wears Strateas Carlucci.
‘I was born in a small town called Karratha in the north of Western Australia, but I've lived in Sydney for four years now. Here, I’m at the Sydney Opera House – what can I say? It’s iconic, and a symbol of Australia. Having not grown up here, I feel there is always a sense of excitement for me. There is this uncanny optimism in this city that anything is possible as long as you don’t take yourself too seriously, and I really resonate with that. I also think Sydney’s creative industry is really supportive of each other. It hasn’t always been like that, but the new generation is pushing for diversity and equality in our industry, and that is something I really stand behind.’ n shot: Thomas wears T-shirt by Helmut Lang; and cardholder by Jacquemus.
