LGT client journal CREDO

Published twice a year, CREDO is our journal on wealth culture. It will entertain and surprise you, but also give you food for thought.

Owning wealth always brings with it a sense of responsibility. Wealth culture means embracing this responsibility and passing the values tied up in it on to the next generation. Through fascinating profiles, unconventional interviews and gripping reports, our client journal CREDO introduces you to some extraordinary personalities who embody this philosophy.

 

The current issue of CREDO on the topic of "Style" (XXXI 2020)

The question of style is something that has always given rise to debate, for example: who has style, and who does not? What does style mean after all? Does it change depending on the culture and period, or is it universal? This issue of CREDO contains a kaleidoscope of stylish personalities.

  • The subject of our cover story, the Japanese high priest of style and architect Shigeru Ban, explains his style with a straightforward formula: when simple materials such as paper and cardboard achieve the highest degree of efficiency, beautiful design automatically follows.
  • The four young Kenyans featured in our Report section live in a slum, and poverty is part of their everyday life. Their style of dress gives the slum inhabitants a colorful glimmer of hope.
  • The Swiss butler Hanspeter Vochezer observes that more style can be found in certain poverty-stricken areas than in the world of the rich and powerful.
  • Barbara Vinken, a professor of literature, challenges the intellectual vilification of appearances and explains the impact of pandemics on how we dress.

And much more besides...
