editor’s letter

Way back, too many years I care to admit, I was a music festival fanatic, even traipsing to rain-soaked Glastonbury to see the world’s best bands, caked top-to-toe in mud. Those weekends provided some of my wildest memories; carefree times when nothing mattered but music, friends and dancing. Sadly, these feelgood music festivals have more recently become playgrounds of tragedy, with five youths dying from suspected drug overdoses in the past six months. Late last year, when we first commissioned this month’s special report into festival fatalities, we knew it was a crucial issue on the rise. What we didn’t foresee is that three more lives would be lost while journalist Cat Rodie penned her piece, with news of the most recent victim – 19-year-old Alex Ross-King – emerging just as…

1 ISLAND TIME Beach and bar dress codes combine – think pool slides paired with diaphanous florals and shots of sunshine yellow. 2 SMALL WONDER No longer reserved for evenings, the minaudière makes a dazzling daytime debut via Louis Vuitton’s LV Egg bag. 3 CALI COOL What would you wear strolling down the Venice Beach boardwalk? Tropical prints, acid brights and a beachball shoulder bag, if you will. Finishing touches: bohemian brights 4 SHADES OF BEIGE The red carpet may favour daring, skin-flashing designs, but the runway takes a more modest approach to the naked dress. The look: flowy skirts and soft silhouettes spanning a spectrum of nude hues. All in the details: slip into neutral 5 NEW UTILITY Supersized pockets, souped-up belt bags, streamlined staples … Functionality meets flair, proving the directive du jour for the modern woman.

bags of style

Sophistication whispers rather than shouts, a tenet that Bottega Veneta knows all too well. While its polished peers might demand attention with slogans, logos and labels, the Italian house, built in 1966, prefers to slowly seduce customers with meticulous workmanship and design. “WHEN YOUR OWN INITIALS ARE ENOUGH”CAPTURES THE CLASSIC BOTTEGA VENETA ETHOS Nowhere is the philosophy more evident than in the brand’s accessories offering. Take the Knot, a curved, compact clutch encased in the brand’s signature intrecciato weave. It’s more of a classic than pure eye candy, and has lured the likes of Nicole Kidman, Salma Hayek and Kate Bosworth with its elegant-meets-artisan aesthetic. Then there’s the iconic Cabat, which sits among the Birkin and Kelly as a sign of jetset chic. Weaving one of these beauties takes at least 48…

LOVE ACTUALLY Louis Vuitton has the key to our hearts with this sweet quilted bag, designed to be worn over the shoulder, as a clutch or on a belt – and in store just in time for Valentine’s Day. PAST PERFECT Modest, yes, but surprisingly modern too, vintage frocks are sweeping the street-style circuit. Time to get acquainted with your local Vinnies! GLAM ROCKS It-Brit brand Rixo takes a trip back to the ’80s for its first foray into accessories, drawing inspiration from the era’s diverse style icons (think Princess Diana meets Jerry Hall). Our pick? These mismatched, gem-encrusted earrings. FROM ROME WITH LOVE Oh, Valentino, purveyor of rich prints, studded accessories and dazzling couture. Now Sydneysiders can get their fix thanks to a new standalone store in the city’s Westfield.…

BRITAIN FASHION FORWARD A new face starts a conversation about the treatment of female models When Shahira Yusuf signed with Storm Models, the agency that discovered Kate Moss, she sat down with her agent to write a list of her “boundaries” – the rules that stylists and photographers should be aware of before a shoot. She must have her arms, chest and hair covered. She must not be expected to wear clothes that are very tight, nor anything that makes her feel uncomfortable. A Londoner with Somali heritage, Yusuf, 21, is being touted as the next big thing in the industry – joining a handful of young women whose hijabs mean that as well as holding down a modelling career, they have inadvertently become ambassadors for their faith. Yet when setting modesty boundaries,…

online dating

I’m married to a man and have four kids. Tinder wasn’t around when I was single, so I’ve never been on a real online date. I have a little bit of envy around that, so I’m always hassling my single best friend to get on the apps. It looks like fun! I could never understand her pushback until I tried it myself, as part of an experiment for my 2018 SBS documentary Is Australia Sexist? On a mission to observe how men behave online, I created a Tinder avatar, “Lucy”. I was wearing running gear and a baseball cap – definitely not a come-hither look – but the messages quickly started rolling in. Some were straightforward like, “What are you doing this weekend?” But a lot were really sexist and degrading:…
