In conversation with Brie Leon Handbag & Graphic Designer, Amelia
Fondest memory of Summer?
My summers spent in Mollymook as a child. Plus a summer spent in Paris with my partner.
Favourite local haunts for a long lunch?
One piece of jewellery you’re living in this summer?
What are you reading/watching over the break?
I always have a couple of books going at once. I’ve just started 'Coventry' by Rachel Cusk and 'Now' by The Invisible Committee. I love reading, especially when on holidays, 'The Age of Reason' by Jean-Paul Sartre is next on my pile of books to start. There's a couple of movies like Holy Mountain, that my partner and I have been saving to watch over the break.
Good recipe when hosting?
I love cooking and throwing dinner parties. One of my favourite things to cook is risotto, it’s such a labour of love. My favourite recipe is the roast eggplant and tomato risotto from Rose Bakery’s cookbook ‘Breakfast, Lunch, Tea’. I also love cooking a creamy polenta dish with mushrooms, it’s so decadent, yet super quick and easy to make.
What are you giving your loved ones?
Ceramic mugs, glassware from Maison Balzac, Poor Tom’s Negroni Mix and some of the new Brie Leon snake-skin bags.

What are you keeping for yourself?
Lesse face mist, Byredo perfume and the new 925 Elle Earrings for Christmas Day.
Thank you Amelia!
