Marie Claire South Africa June 2016

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines. Marie Claire is for multifaceted women with a shared mind-set: they are curious about the world and empathize with other women, and their interests range from social issues to fashion trends. The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories.

the sound and the fury

HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU heard how difficult times are? You’d think from the way people talk that our country – or the world – has never been in a worse state. I don’t buy this. Of course we have our problems: recession and racism, climate change and inequality, chaos in the Middle East and at home. But it’s not like previous generations had it easy. They had the Great Depression, two world wars and then a cold one, genocide, apartheid and all the rest. Ours are undoubtedly enormous, complicated challenges. But that may just be the way of the world when there are seven billion of us. The fact that there are seven billion of us is why we also need to celebrate what it can mean for us to be…

LOCAL SPOTLIGHT When Mary-Anne Grobler founded Matter of Fakt in 2013, she drew inspiration from her childhood visits to Namibia How did you start your brand? By accident, really. I’ve always enjoyed making things by hand and Matter of Fakt started off as one of my projects. After a great response, I expanded the range. What materials do you work with? Mostly brass and a bit of silver, and my next range will also include raw materials like leather. What is your most popular item? The choker. Best tip for looking after jewellery? Keep your items away from make-up and toiletries. Matteroffakt.com LET ME SEA Winter makes us lust for the summery shades of turquoise and aquamarine – and Swarovski has read our minds with its SS16 Sea of Sparkle collection.

While still in school, Kimberley-born designer Thebe Magugu put together a magazine called Little Black Book , filled with photos of him and his friends (including artist Lucille Slade and photographer Trevor Stuurman) in ‘skin-tight, badly made “couture”’. ‘I was certain I owned the fashion industry,’ he says. Thebe, now 23, went on to study design, photography and media at Lisof in Johannesburg and was a finalist on the 2015 AFI Fastrack runway, where his impeccable pleating, roomy culottes and kimonos caught everyone’s attention. His talented eye is not just for fashion – he is also an acclaimed amateur photographer, with his photo series about Africans challenging the preconceived notions about them appearing on Vogue Italia’s website. ‘For my most recent collection, I was inspired by the women I see on the…

what kelly loves gemstone

A little bit of luxury is all you need for a quick pick-me-up. Sometimes, it’s the out-of-reach, ultra-decadent things that serve as inspiration. This month, I only needed one look at a drawing of an extravagant vintage Bulgari creation to fall in lust with all things jewel-toned, rich and ornate. In turn, a lush emerald hue sparked an unpredictable preference to this month’s edit. Anna Sui painted metallic green across the lids of her models, paired with a red lip, proving that on occasion, you can have the best of both worlds. Carolina Herrera pressed a deep wine colour into the lips for an edgier appeal, while the girls at Lepore sported matchy-matchy burgundy lips and nails, a look that signalled elegance. Now is the perfect time to up your…
