Sydney will be the second-highest city for prime price growth in 2022 (9%), only behind Miami (10%) according to Knight Frank’s Prime Global Forecast data on prime property markets around the world.

The NSW capital is estimated to reach prime residential growth of 12% by the end of 2021, after recording 10.7% growth in the year to Q3 2021. This is in line with other global cities, with Knight Frank’s Prime Global Cities Index for Q3 2021 showing that 33% of global cities registered price growth above 10% in the same period.

With borders reopening and the return of investors combined with domestic buyers looking for second homes – the report posits that prime prices will accelerate further across Australia.

However, this is not a trend that is isolated to Australia, with Knight Frank’s data showing that 84% of global cities saw prime prices rise on an annual basis – a percentage that is growing each quarter.

Michelle Ciesielski, Knight Frank’s head of residential research indicates that the prime residential market will experience a lengthier upward swing — in line with other global cities.

“There have now been 35 consecutive quarters of uninterrupted positive annual growth in Sydney’s prime market, averaging 7.3% growth since 2013. Although we’re hearing of record prices being achieved at the very top end, the growth in the prestige market is steadily coming off a much higher footing,” said Ms Ciesielski.

“Contributing to Sydney’s prime values, the super-prime market is performing exceptionally well with many suburban records being achieved in excess of $10 million, especially for those homes located close to the water.”

Sydney wasn’t the only Australian city to perform well in the prestige market in the year to Q3 2021. All five major cities ranked in the top 23, from 45 global cities in the Prime Global Cities Index Q3 2021, averaging 9.3% annual growth – although this is still shy of the overall rate of growth for the global index at 9.5%.

While Sydney saw 10.7% annual growth in this time, Gold Coast and Perth were close behind with double-digit growth of 10.5% and 10.4%, respectively. Brisbane registered 8.4% growth, whilst Melbourne continued to pick up pace with 6.5%.

Following Sydney’s prime forecast of 9% in 2022, Gold Coast is earmarked to see the prime residential market grow by a further 8%, whilst Melbourne closer to 7%, followed by Perth and Brisbane at 6%.

Knight Frank defines the prime residential market as being the most desirable and expensive property in a given location, generally defined as the top 5% of each market by value.

Personal Wardrobe of the Iconic Late Fashion Designer Vivienne Westwood Goes up for Auction

The personal wardrobe of the late fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, who is credited for introducing punk to fashion and further developing the style, is headed to auction in June.

Christie’s will hold the live sale in London on June 25, while some of the pieces will be available in an online auction from June 14-28, according to a news release from the auction house on Monday.

Andreas Kronthaler, Westwood’s husband and the creative director for her eponymous fashion company, selected the clothing, jewellery, and accessories for the sale, and the auction will benefit charitable organisations The Vivienne Foundation, Amnesty International, and Médecins Sans Frontières.

The more than 200 lots span four decades of Westwood’s fashion, dating to Autumn/Winter 1983-84, which was one of Westwood’s earliest collections. Titled “Witches,” the collection was inspired by witchcraft as well as Keith Haring’s “graphic code of magic symbols,” and the earliest piece being offered from it is a two-piece ensemble made of navy blue serge, according to the release.

“Vivienne Westwood’s sense of activism, art and style is embedded in each and every piece that she created,” said Adrian Hume-Sayer, the head of sale and director of Private & Iconic Collections at Christie’s.

A corset gown of taupe silk taffeta from “Dressed to Scale,” Autumn/Winter 1998-99, will also be included in the sale. The collection “referenced the fashions that were documented by the 18th century satirist James Gillray and were intended to attract as well as provoke thought and debate,” according to Christie’s.

Additionally, a dress with a blue and white striped blouse and a printed propaganda modesty panel and apron is a part of the wardrobe collection. The dress was a part of “Propaganda,” Autumn/Winter 2005-06, Westwood’s “most overtly political show” at the time. It referenced both her punk era and Aldous Huxley’s essay “Propaganda in a Democratic Society,” according to Christie’s.

The wardrobe collection will be publicly exhibited at Christie’s London from June 14-24.

“The pre-sale exhibition and auctions at Christie’s will celebrate her extraordinary vision with a selection of looks that mark significant moments not only in her career, but also in her personal life,” Hume-Sayer said. “This will be a unique opportunity for audiences to encounter both the public and the private world of the great Dame Vivienne Westwood and to raise funds for the causes in which she so ardently believed.”

Westwood died in December 2022 in London at the age of 81.
