fresh start

January is traditionally posited as the time of renewal and rebirth, but I suspect that for most of us, it’s really September when the blood begins to stir, and the world seems alive with possibilities after the soporific joys of summer. Who can forget the visceral thrill of the first day of the school year: setting off into the future, with a case of freshly sharpened pencils, stiff new shoes and (literally) an un-blotted copybook? That sense of excitement remains with me, as the days begin to draw in, and an exhilarating nip in the air heralds the start of fashion’s new term. Once again, I can begin to think about wrapping myself in soft coats, and investing in smart boots and swingy bags… Our comprehensive guide to the new…

ELIF SHAFAK A prolific and beloved novelist, essayist and political thinker, Shafak is a forthright advocate for women’s rights, writing frequently on issues ranging from feminism to freedom of expression. Having grown up in Turkey, she now resides in London with her family, and, in ‘Words of wisdom’, she talks about her magical new novel, The Island of Missing Trees. Your style icon ‘I just listen to my own heart, how I feel when I put on a dress or a suit.’ What era of fashion do you wish you had lived through? ‘I cannot wear corsets, bonnets, bustles and petticoats… but I am very fond of Victorian long cloaks with hoods. They even look good on Darth Vader or Dracula.’ Your most treasured piece of jewellery is… ‘my turquoise and huge silver rings,…

10 things we love

1 BETTER TO GET HER Now that’s what we call a power couple. Gucci and Balenciaga made fashion history with an A/W 21 collaboration, mixing and matching signature silhouettes and sharing monograms, coming up with two collections even more fabulous than the sum of their parts. 2 BY ROYAL APPOINTMENT Although she’s our sartorial icon whatever the season, the Queen ruled A/W runways with her signature style. A silk headscarf, tied neatly under the chin, is the accessory you need now. 3 Lunar landing Put your furriest foot forward. We’ve had fashion wellies; now it’s time to welcome the moon boot… 4 PARTY LIKE IT’S 2019 All dressed up and somewhere to go: our colour of the new season is shiny. 5 Make do and mend Also known as ‘what we learnt in lockdown’ – from crochet to patchwork,…

STYLIST’S TIP ‘To ensure the look is fresh rather than fusty, team your tweeds and a silk headscarf with chunky boots and bare legs (if the temperature allows).’ PAST ORAL PANACHE Dress in full rural regalia with woven wool and chic checks THE INSPIRATION ‘The Queen continues to inspire modern designers with her countryside style; this 1941 cover of Bazaar is another reminder that tartan and tweed weather the vagaries of superficial trends.’ LYDIA SLATER Editor-in-chief ‘Tweed’s timeless elegance and practicality both reflects the resilience required over the past year and pays due homage to the uplifting glories of the British countryside.’ THE INSPIRATION ‘After a year without glamour, Shalom Harlow – with her dark eyes and daring black lips – feels so right for now.’ Fashion director ‘The dark, seductive elegance of the Dior show is exactly what I want for…

By blending his ultra-feminine aesthetic with more sporty elements for A/W 21, the Italian designer Ermanno Scervino sought to rekindle the pleasure of dressing up after a challenging year. ‘I believe that today, even more than before, we need to remember and fully celebrate the beauty that surrounds us,’ he says. ‘My concept was to make women look good without making them uncomfortable.’ As a result, Scervino used looser silhouettes and materials: pleated skirts in raw-cut neoprene, trousers with side bands like those for skiing and the house’s signature lace reimagined in soft leather. Knitwear also stood out, including fringed sheep-skin coats, hand-embroidered capes and chunky wool jumpers to welcome the autumn in style.

my life, my style

‘ Our neighbourhood is like some thing from Harry Potter,’ says Sophie Bille Brahe at her home in Hellerup, a peaceful suburb just 20 minutes by bike from the centre of Copenhagen. ‘All the streets have flower names and I love that we are close to the water.’ The Danish jewellery designer, whose eponymous brand celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, has made a name for herself with modern pearl creations and a knack for combining Scandi cool with dazzling diamonds. Bille Brahe also believes in making truly wearable jewellery and you’ll even find her sporting some favourite pieces during her daily dip in the North Sea. ‘For me to be able to do new designs, I need to somehow clear out my head, and if I go swimming in…
