“what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it” – yves saint laurent

“FASHION WITH ATTITUDE.” That’s the catchy coverline fronting our September edition, and from the first page (Prada’s stomping boots) to the last (Balenciaga’s graffiti prints), it’s clearly the message that came through on the recent runways. But admittedly it should probably read “women with attitude” – because, well, clothes don’t wear themselves. Whether fearlessly minimal or fantastically OTT, the trends you choose to tap into for spring are going to be defined by the way you interpret them. This month, our intrepid fashion team have decoded the new season with a definitive edit of everything you’ll want to see and try, but they want you to know, it’s BYO personality. Something I’m pretty sure you’re not going to have a problem with, right? Natasha Liu Bordizzo has it in spades. If…

AKILA BERJAOUI @akila_berjaoui This photographer’s sun-kissed images make us long to be sipping sangria by the seaside in Spain. Get a taste of her work in our wELLEness special, “Good Vibes Only”, on p158. On my playlist: The Blaze, James Holden, John Maus and Who Made Who, just to name a few. On my reading list: Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. On my to-do list: Greece. On my wish list: A holiday! Preferably on a remote island or sail boat where there’s limited wi-fi, plenty of sun and blue water as far as the eye can see. On my bucket list: Antarctica. On my blacklist: Haha, no blacklist. TORY SHEPHERD @toryshepherd In this issue, the journalist writes about being childfree by choice (see “Breaking The Last Taboo” on p90), a topic she explores in depth in her book On Freedom. On my…

HIP TO BE SQUARE Thanks to Bottega Veneta and its much-Instagrammed mesh pumps, ’90s-esque square-toed shoes are having a moment. Get in on the action courtesy of New Zealand label Paris Georgia’s new collab with By Far – the dual-tone sandals are a must for spring. SORRY, NOT SORRY As the invites flood in this social season, we’re embracing a 90 per cent rule, as detailed in Greg McKeown’s Essentialism. How does it work? If your interest in attending falls below 90 per cent, RSVP “no”. For the rest? Brush up on your convo skills with The School Of Life’s much-talked-about course “How To Be Sociable”. theschooloflife.com HOLIDAY JOMO Tired of everyone else’s holiday snaps? Embrace Instagram’s mute feature to hide those who are having a great time elsewhere (for now). But a word of…

boot camp

“Utility” is – by its very nature – usually absent of decoration. But one look at the new-season runways proved otherwise. Isabel Marant’s cargo pants teamed with cascading silver earrings; Coach 1941’s khaki jackets spruced up with floral prints. Our favourite takes on utilitarian dressing came with a romantic twist. And the clincher? Combat boots, soaring mid-calf and higher, which stormed the runway at Prada, Alexander McQueen and Bottega Veneta. Worn with bursts of colour, layered jewellery or bold blooms, they’re the shoe to whip your wardrobe into shape this season. Attention! Styling: Caroline Tran. Model: Emory Ault at IMG Models PHOTOGRAPHY BY ADRIAN PRICE…

bad romance

SET AGAINST THE BACKDROP of Brexit, ongoing riots in Paris and political uncertainty in Italy (to say nothing of the near-daily disasters coming out of Washington DC), it’s perhaps no surprise that the autumn/winter 19-20 shows veered into darker territory. We’re talking “dark” in the most literal sense. Black has long been a mainstay of the fashion crowd but this season it really was everywhere, setting the mood for the darkly romantic thread that wove its way through the collections. “WE’RE TALKING ‘DARK’ in the MOST LITERAL SENSE” There was an abundance of winter florals, most memorably at Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen – the latter of which saw Sarah Burton fashion metres of silk into evening gowns in the shape of roses. But roses weren’t the only evidence of romance…
