JUSTIN CARTER Photographer ‘I really lucked out on the location,’ says Carter of the factory-turned-studio space in Montreal where he photographed some of Canada’s most inspiring new design, ahead of a 2021 exhibition (page 038, and on our newsstand cover). ‘The way the light streamed through the large windows – it was quite delicate.’ The day of the shoot, Carter heard he’d been accepted into grad school; he’s now working on his master’s thesis at NSCAD University, Halifax. SAM RANGER Stylist Ranger collaborated with photographer Gabby Laurent on this month’s main fashion story, featuring womenswear from the S/S21 and resort collections (page 100). ‘Gabby came up with the concept of “the swoon”,’ says Ranger of the shoot, which is full of movement. ‘It was also exciting to work with model Mammina Aker, as I have…

editor’s letter

Fresh start Welcome to our January issue! In the spirit of new beginnings, this issue is dedicated to the Next Generation, the bright minds and budding talents that have captivated and inspired us. Among them is artist Kudzanai-Violet Hwami, who represented her native Zimbabwe at the Venice Biennale in 2019, at the age of 26. Her colourful portraits, often in collage formats that recall childhood cartoons and time spent on Tumblr, offer a vivid commentary on gender, sexuality and identity. Alongside a visit to her London studio, we invited Hwami to create a new painting for our limited-edition cover (available to subscribers). The result, titled Plains of the Christmas Cow, is an enlightening example of how technology has shaped the creative universe of digital natives: ‘Unrelated images borrowed from family archives and…

For stockists throughout, see page 112 It’s an age-old belief that beauty lies in perfect symmetry, but on the A/W20 catwalks, it was off-kilter silhouettes that drew the most admiration. For autumn, tailoring was reimagined with an off-centre twist, with coats and blazers fastened around the body using side straps, buckles and belts. Harness the season’s wraparound potential with Louis Vuitton’s tuxedo jacket, which has a double-layer side strap detail resembling a deconstructed cummerbund, or Dior’s liquid leather outerwear, which boasts an oversized pocket and punky side buckle. Dunhill and Armani have also erred off-centre, proving that your best side for autumn is the one that’s most unbalanced. Model: Zi Liang at Models 1. Casting: David Steven Wilton. Hair: Liam Russell using Evo and Oribe. Make-up: Jinny Kim using Boy de Chanel…

preen revolution

Danish skincare brand Nuori’s first line of grooming accessories expresses the most quintessential aspects of Scandinavian design – simplicity, efficiency and elegance. Developed in collaboration with creative studio NR2154, the range of vegan leather cosmetic cases and biodegradable cellulose combs are designed to look simultaneously modern and timeless, and come in four muted shades (Neutral, Rose, Ocean and Black). Established in 2015 by Jasmi Bonnén, Nuori was a pioneer of ‘fresh beauty’, with its small-batch formulas that last for a matter of weeks as opposed to the chemical-packed beauty products made to line shelves for months or even years. Now the brand is applying that same ‘fresh’ perspective to its beauty tools, thanks in part to the insight of Jasmi’s husband Peter Bonnén, co-founder of Danish design brand Muuto. ‘One…

all that jazz

Integrating jewelled details into clothing has given a dazzling uplift to adornment this season. Heritage has been key, with Bottega Veneta drawing on Milanese goldsmithing tradition, integrating a chunky chain into a soft knitted neckline. Meanwhile, Daniel Roseberry’s sophomore collection for Schiaparelli reinterpreted the house’s signature keyhole motif as a dramatic dress closure. ‘I was really inspired by the feel of Alberto Giacometti textures, and interpreted the keyhole through that lens,’ he says. At Lanvin, Bruno Sialelli was inspired by the monkey motifs created by Lanvin’s founder Jeanne Lanvin and her long-time collaborator, interior designer Armand-Albert Rateau, for Paris’ Théâtre Daunou in 1921. These curly-tailed creatures sit on the lapels of a tailored jacket as animalistic arbiters of the label’s history. Model: Ana Barbosa at Titanium Management. Casting: David Steven Wilton.…

trash course

Growing up in Mumbai, Sachi Tungare was driven to learn about product and furniture design by her mother’s passion for home decoration. She recently graduated in industrial design from India’s Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, and her degree project, Jugaad, was born from extensive research into materials and waste, and how the latter can be repurposed to create functional design objects. ‘Being environmentally conscious is no longer a choice,’ she says. Jugaad focuses on two types of waste: discarded floral matter from daily prayer rituals and festivals, and cigarette butts, whose filters contains cellulose acetate, a material that frequently ends up polluting the oceans. With the former, the designer developed an alternative to the single-use plastic used in hotel amenities and toiletries, while the latter was treated to…
