editor’s letter

It began with an email… received in the chilly depths of January. I was spending a few days in the Austrian mountains when a message arrived in my inbox out of the blue. The sender went by the simplest of monikers – “M” – and for a second I was confused, wondering who this mysterious, one-lettered correspondent could possibly be. I couldn’t have known then how the answer to this question would come to define an extraordinary few months in the life of this magazine, or that it would lead to HRH The Duchess of Sussex becoming the first person ever to guest edit a September issue of British Vogue. Anyone who knows me, or has read this title since I became its editor two years ago, will already appreciate that the…

guest editor’s letter

It was in early January… on a cold and blustery London day, that I sat down for a cup of tea with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful. Though we have several mutual friends, our first encounter had been years in the making, the impetus for which was my asking him to support an organisation I strongly believe in called Smart Works (The Smart Set, page 276). What evolved over the next hour was a promising pow wow of two like-minded thinkers, who have much in common, including our love of writing. Over a steaming cup of mint tea, we teased through how one can shine light in a world filled with seemingly daily darkness. Lofty? Of course. Worth it? Without question. Within hours of our meeting’s end, we were already texting one…

backstage pass

When it came to photographing the extraordinary cast of women who appear on the cover of this collector’s edition of British Vogue, there was only one man for the job: Peter Lindbergh. “It was one of those brilliantly spontaneous moments when HRH The Duchess of Sussex and I had exactly the same idea at exactly the same time,” says Edward Enninful, of the choice. “Peter sees beauty in real people, in real situations. He makes everybody feel their best.” The German photography titan boasts a long history with British Vogue, but it was his now-famous January 1990 cover, featuring a gang of supermodels, that was the reference for the Forces for Change issue. “Natural” was a word that came up repeatedly in cover discussions. “I hate retouching, I hate make-up. I…

1 BOARDROOM TACTICS Introducing two brands that will serve your nine-to-five across all categories: New York-based Peter Do, and London’s Rokh by Rok Hwang are fast becoming our go-to designers for cool but refined suiting and elegant shirting. 2 METAL WORKER A glistening lamé blouse might not spring to mind as an ideal candidate for the day job – but hear us out. When paired with serious tailoring (such as Lemaire’s bonus-worthy charcoal-grey suit), the disco lights will dim sufficiently to see you through the day. 3 SLEEVE NOTES The freshest update in shirting silhouettes? Statement sleeves, which now feel boardroom-appropriate when layered under dresses or worn with black trousers. 4 IN THE LOOP Known for its personalised phone covers, Chaos now makes a gold-plated belt-loop karabiner for keys and phones. 5 STRUCTURAL EMPLOYMENT Ratio & Motus – drop…

SADDLE UP A ‘70s saddle bag projects the pulled-together confidence of the season’s uptown mood. Rather than wearing over-the-shoulder, wrap the strap around your wrist and hug the bag to your hip – it will sit most prettily when it’s not interfering with a blazer lapel. CACHE AND CARRY It’s not only a question of style, but of substance – why not put your tote to the laptop test? And for those who would take a personalised paper diary (thank you, Smythson) over an iCal entry any day, space won’t be an issue.…

play your strong suit

Believe us, we’re as tired of the dress-for-success template – which begins with power shoulders and ends with Manhattan-skyline heels – as you are. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider a suit for autumn. The new breed is as mature and risk-free as a market in equilibrium, rendered in corporate shades of black, grey and brown. Seek out little details that can add charm to conventional prototype: shoulders that slouch just so; hemlines that surprise; and accessories, such as chunky chain necklaces and scarf-handle bags, that delight. Don’t be afraid to throw in the odd curveball: a cherry-red silk shirt with ’70s lapels promises joy. Who said workwear had to be dreary?…
