LISTEN Folk-rock band The Lumineers burst onto the scene in 2012, when their first single, “Ho Hey,” could be heard in just about every coffee shop across America for months on end. On September 13, they’ll release their third full-length studio album, III, which contains nine songs bundled into three “chapters” that together tell a story about family, addiction, and love. SHOP Etro is synonymous with colorful paisley prints, but the brand’s Pegasus logo, created in 1968, is just as iconic. This season, the house honors that heritage by reissuing its Pegaso Bag as an on-trend cross-body. (Handbag, Etro, $1,140, select Etro boutiques nationwide) SEE Louis Vuitton has wowed fans by revealing the incredible skills involved in crafting the house’s signature leather goods via immersive exhibits like Volez, Voguez, Voyagez. The latest, Louis Vuitton X,…

READ The 14 perceptive essays in Leslie Jamison’s Make It Scream, Make It Burn are divided by category—journalism, criticism, or memoir. Touching upon everything from the “loneliest whale in the world” to Jamison’s experience becoming a stepmother, they demonstrate that the best-selling author of The Empathy Exams continues to explore the limits of human connection. READ In the new anthology Whose Story Is This?, the acclaimed essayist Rebecca Solnit—whom the New York Times has called “the voice of the resistance”—explores the battle to shape the narrative of our era. “The real work,” she writes, “is not to convert those who hate us but to change the world so that haters don’t hold disproportionate power and so that others are not sucked into the nightmare.”…

ANGELINA WITH HER DOGS: “THEY HAVE A HABIT OF RUNNING AROUND THE BED WHEN I’M READING—PARTICULARLY THE ROTTWEILER, WHO THINKS HE’S SMALLER THAN HE IS.” Like most of the world, I’ve long been fascinated by Angelina Jolie. Before I met her, I always thought there was something magnetic about her ability to blaze a trail and live without compromise. Now that I know her firsthand, I’m in awe of her generosity and compassion. She graced my first cover as editor-in-chief of ELLE in March 2018, and now, a year and a half later, I’m very excited to work with her again for our cover story on page 278. She is one of those multifaceted women we love to embrace at ELLE. What you might not know about Angelina is how involved she…

the power of fashion

IN AN ERA WHEN WOMEN ARE FIGHTING, once again, for our hard-won access to choice, it might seem counterintuitive that the suit—in its most masculine, tailored, gray flannel incarnation—is making a comeback. But come back it did, on female dandies in bow ties at Dolce & Gabbana, girls with cravats at Burberry, twenty-first-century Katharine Hepburns at Givenchy, even the cool kids at Alexander Wang (where a loose gray version, worn over a shiny black vest, served as a hipster-ized version of the three-piece suit). There’s a well-worn saying that “three is a trend.” But when it’s more of an avalanche, like this season’s parade of suits, it’s clear that some kind of reclamation of power is going on. In this case, that means power in its most literal form—suits with ’40s…
