editor letter

It’s our mission to celebrate incredible women every month, but this issue packs more powerhouse punch than usual as we feature the winners of the inaugural marie claire and Bumble Glass Ceiling Awards. From the unstoppable former PM Julia Gillard, who scooped the main accolade for smashing the highest and hardest glass ceiling of all, to the two fearless teens working to halt cancer and climate change, the roll call of achievements is inspiring beyond words. While we launched these awards to honour such wonderwomen, we also wanted to celebrate the revolutionary companies helping to smash gender barriers in the workplace today. These businesses are at the coalface of change and slowly shifting the dial more than we know or realise. Right now, there are many companies that recognise the…

FRENCH DRESSING In an ode to the ’70s, Celine serves up button-up blouses, woollen skirts and tall glossy boots. Old-school Parisian polish is in – and we’re here for it. THE EYES HAVE IT Blinged-up cat-eyes, round retro frames, tinted lenses… these new-season statement shades promise not only instant style cred, but a fresh outlook on life. LAYER UP Don’t be afraid to double down on checks. HIGHLAND FLING Rockstars and royals have long turned to tartan to symbolise power or protest. Now the heritage check returns to the runway in a flurry of colour and cool. A TOUCH OF TEXTURE Appliqué and embroidery lift the look. MOODY BLOOMS Graphic posies creep up midnight-hued maxis and spring florals take a twisted turn. Because what’s fashion if not a study in contrast and contradiction? RED ALERT Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection for Fendi showcased the…

NATURAL HUES AND WILD PRINTS FORMED THE MOOD BOARD FOR THIS ACCESSORIES RANGE Itty-bitty bags impart ladylike loveliness; no-logo accessories are timeless and chic. But in a world where minimalism is so often hailed as the ideal, there’s something to be said for making a sartorial statement. Such was the standpoint of Nicolas Ghesquière and his team at Louis Vuitton when conjuring their latest collection of carry-alls. Titled Monogram Giant Jungle, the line has its roots in Japan, where the house held its Cruise 2018 runway show. Set over a lush green valley in south-east Kyoto, it was a spectacle of natural hues and wild prints – leopard collars, furry jackets and fierce boots – which formed the mood board for this accessories range. But that’s where the parallels with Japan stop. In…

US UNDER THE SURFACE A female photographer aims to strip back the feel-good facade of old-Hollywood glamour There’s something alluring about synchronised swimmers. They look picture perfect, moving around gracefully with their dazzling smiles. But this impeccability also throws up questions, like “What is really going on behind those serene masks?” Photographer Emma Hartvig is interested in what’s hidden beneath the perfection. In her documentary The Swimmers, she explores the tension that arises when people have to be in control all the time. “All of my life, I’ve been very interested in the idea of glamorous Hollywood stars or swimmers,” says Hartvig. “The whole Marilyn Monroe thing – you know, sad and tired but beautiful. Synchronised swimmers, the old-school ones, they’re very performative. It’s [all] about their red lips and being smiley. I’m interested…
