… joyful aspects of my work here at Vogue involves dealing in the art of prophesy, intuiting the mood of the season ahead so as to alert readers to the fashion and culture moments that truly matter, as well as to the faces – both familiar and brand new – who are set to define our times. It is a privilege that I take very seriously indeed; if a person appears in these pages, they are someone of real note, someone who is lighting up their field in important and meaningful ways. So it pleases me greatly to make the following prediction: this month’s cover star, Naomi Scott, will soon be one of Britain’s brightest cultural exports. A first Vogue cover is a major landmark in any career, and not often…

on your bike

How positive is your relationship with your thighs? I only ask because, this spring, it might need a little therapy – thigh-rapy, if you will – in preparation for the new short shape. Don’t shoot the (bike) messenger but it’s: cycling shorts. The s/s ’19 shows contained enough to clothe a peloton. At Chanel, Fendi, Jacquemus, Jil Sander, Miu Miu, Roberto Cavalli and Stella McCartney, workout-ready shorts transformed catwalks across Europe into veritable velodromes. At Chanel – paired with jaunty tweed jackets and straw hats – they generated a madeleine moment: micro shorts appeared under Chanel couture dresses as recently as 2014, but many showgoers were instantly transported back to spring/summer 1991, when Linda Evangelista stalked the catwalk, surfboard under one arm, in a sequined blue evening jacket, door-knocker earrings and…

sherrie silver

With her encyclopedic knowledge of African dance and trademark hypnotic style, Rwandan born, London-raised Sherrie Silver is quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought-after choreographers. Having launched her YouTube channel in 2011, bringing her self-taught moves to the masses, the 24-year-old shot to fame last year after Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) booked her to work on his music video for “This Is America”, which won her a VMA for Best Choreography. “My mother was texting me every five minutes about the number of people who had watched it,” she says, laughing. “It hit more than 12 million views in 24 hours.” Up next? The release of Guava Island, a musical film starring Rihanna and Glover, which she choreographed, as well as working with the latter on his Coachella…

zip code

No piece of jewellery is a more perfect expression of the relationship between haute couture and haute joaillerie than Van Cleef & Arpels’ Zip necklace. In 1930s Paris, Elsa Schiaparelli thrilled the fashion crowd with avant-garde couture designs incorporating visible zips, hitherto consigned to utilitarian wear. It is believed that it was one of Schiaparelli’s clients, the Duchess of Windsor, who challenged her friend Renée Puissant, Van Cleef’s artistic director, to create a piece of high jewellery that functioned in the same way as a zip. More than 10 years in the making, the result – eventually finished in 1950 – was a feat of audacious design and engineering that endures today. Featuring interlocking gold teeth peppered with precious gems, the Zip could be worn as a necklace or, when zipped…
