editor’s letter

THIS MONTH YOU’LL FIND MEF… There’s a saying, if you want to change the world, you’ve got to “find your fearless”. Think about all those gutsy game-changers, and they often talk about the pivotal moment they found the courage to stand up, speak out or do something exceptional. Starting a new company, swapping careers, going for Olympic gold, facing down bullies: all these (and so much more) require us to banish inhibitions, no matter the consequences. It’s a concept we discuss constantly at marie claire, mostly because our main mission has always been to inspire women to move fearlessly forward so they can reach their true power and potential. It’s an audacious goal indeed, especially as most of us are hindered by fears, according to multiple studies. From garden-variety phobias (don’t…

“HE B.BLOSSOM RANGE IS HAPPY, FUN, FEMININE AND FIERCE”– Francesca Amfitheatrof If there was one word to sum up today’s resounding fashion feeling, it would be “female”. No longer toiling over sewing machines in dark and dingy backrooms, women are finally stepping into the spotlight and helming some of the world’s largest fashion houses. The latest lady on the block: Francesca Amfitheatrof, who’s taken the reins as artistic director of watches and jewellery for Louis Vuitton. She arrives at the house following a stellar career designing jewels across the globe (born in Japan, she’s part-Italian, part-Russian and part-American). Her debut offering, B.Blossom, is a line of fine jewellery for the woman who’s not afraid to leave her mark on the world. Louis Vuitton’s instantly recognisable star-shaped flower, stamped on the maison’s much-loved luggage…

Chanel’s J12 watch has graced the wrists of everyone from Victoria Beckham to Lily-Rose Depp. To mark its 20th anniversary, the design has been subtly refined, but maintains all the hallmarks of the original. The humble shopping bag gets an upgrade care of London designer Stefan Cooke’s reusable paperlook tote, served with a side of sartorial irony.

AFRICA DANCING QUEENS In the slums of Kenya, weekly ballet class is helping groups of young girls to dream big On Wednesday afternoons, after the final bell of the day, a cement-walled classroom in the impoverished Nairobi neighbourhood of Kibera is transformed into a ballet studio. The room is cleared of its benches and desks and the dirt on the floor is swept away. A group of about 20 girls wearing blue, pink and purple ballet clothes wait for Mike Wamaya, their instructor, to arrive with his stereo. Then, with classical music in the air, the girls begin to dance. The class is organised by the charities Anno’s Africa and One Fine Day and repeated in slums across Kenya. Swedish photographer Fredrik Lerneryd, who is based in Nairobi, has joined Wamaya and the girls…
