THE Stylemate, Issue 01|2021: a time between times
In our last issue, we used this page to write about our hopes and dreams for the future. We were somewhat hopeful that the next time we came to write this passage, we would be a bit closer to reaching them than where we find ourselves now. But where are we, actually?
A bit in limbo, you could say. We haven’t quite got to where we would like to be, but we feel like we’ve made it through the worst. Now’s the “time for longing”, as LA-based artist Lucky Tennyson explains in our comprehensive cover interview. During one of the lockdowns, he asked people to come to their windows while he photographed them from outside, and they shared with him what they were longing for.
The feeling of longing is present for all of us. At points during the last year it’s been overwhelmingly strong, while at others it’s perhaps retreated a little more into the background. Maybe our worries and concerns were more prevalent and there was no longer any room for longing.
In this issue, we really want to whisk you away to places that will encourage you to dream, as well as a surrealist apartment in the heart of Rome and the Villa Pelícanos in Mexico, without forgetting our fabulous selection of LIFESTYLEHOTELS.
But all the while, wherever we have spoken to people, the place has resonated with the pandemic. It’s elbowed its way into our heads and altered our thoughts.
Unfortunately, we haven’t yet arrived at the “after” stage – we’re in a time between times.
