Spring 2023 edition

Spring 2023 edition OUT NOW

As our region bursts into bloom, we are thrilled NEW Magazine spring edition is here. Inspired by the inviting embrace of sunlit days, and harbourside charm of our great city, this edition is curated exclusively for you. Bask in opulence as we elevate your spring season to new levels of refinement. 

In the world of style and sophistication, there existed a woman whose allure transcended generations. Jane Birkin embodied a sense of understated luxury. Her early 1970s style – characterised by laissez-faire fringes, peasant blouses and basket bags – continues to epitomise French chic style. It was the Hermès Birkin bag, however, that made Birkin one of fashion’s most recognisable names. With a sky-high price tag and wait list that spanned years, it remains a symbol of unparalleled exclusivity. 

This edition unveils a treasure trove of local gems worth discovering.

Though she was known for her effortless style, Birkin dedicated much of her 76 years to social justice work. She leaves behind an intertwined legacy of charity far bigger than any handbag in her collection. 

This edition unveils a treasure trove of local gems worth discovering. A short stay reminiscent of a palatial Spanish hacienda, set within the heart of the Hunter Valley. The best drops from across the region and a delicious recipe from our friendly neighbours, Humbug. We explore the world of sustainable homewares with BB at the Table and sit down with Jacquie and Joel Steward from Unrivalled Interiors. 

We’ve also added an Arts & Culture section to ignite your curiosity, and a luxe wardrobe edit which pays homage to the timeless influence of the iconic Jane Birkin.
