over the past few weeks…

it has struck me how many of the conversations we’ve been having here at Vogue have boiled down to the same simple and alluring concept: clarity. Well, I say simple, too often this year clarity has felt elusive, as we’ve grappled with a siege of minute-by-minute information and disinformation while pushing on through a pandemic, a civil rights crisis and a fraught American presidential election. Who do we trust? What opinions matter? What are the facts Like appealing consumables low on availability, a little clarity feels profoundly desirable. So perhaps it was inevitable that this yearning for a more fundamental reality and a less embellished take on life made its way on to the pages of our November issue – from the pared-back precision and emphasis on wearability in the…

meet & greet

This month’s cover star, Serena Williams, was photographed by Zoë Ghertner in Los Angeles earlier this year. “We wanted to see another side of Serena’s strength in these pictures,” she explains. “Not an obvious strength but something softer, an inner strength.” As part of November’s food and drink special, Nigerian essayist Yemisí Aríbisálà recalls, on page 90, the part that food played in a doomed love affair. On page 174, contributing fashion director Venetia Scott styles the Bellamacina sisters in a story featuring the season’s cosiest knits, colourful day dresses – and a pair of llamas. “We asked for one, and when the lady showed up she had a wagon load,” Scott recalls. “It turns out llamas can only work in packs.” Pitch Perfect, on page 198, stylist Joe McKenna joins forces with…

In fashion, everything comes full circle – even, it seems, your school uniform. What was once our canvas for detention-worthy customisation and rebellious acts of self-expression has now been translated into a thoroughly contemporary composite of smart shirts, sharp tailoring, traditional waistcoats and ties, too. Back in February, designers set an autumn curriculum of super-luxe uniforms and masculine silhouettes – but thankfully there wasn’t a Teflon coating in sight. Miuccia Prada opened her show with broad-shouldered blazers, weighty herringbone overcoats and slinky cashmere sweaters; almost every look layered over neat shirts with whippet-thin, Windsor-knotted neckties. At Dior, we saw nipped-in Bar jackets, white shirts and black tulle ties – a vision that Maria Grazia Chiuri reiterated, pairing her looks with long blazers, double-breasted waistcoats and schoolyard satchels slung crossbody. The new guard…

“In good time, I will be a superhero.” That’s what Brixton-born Shaina West promised her bedridden 20-year-old self after she totalled her motorbike, was dumped by a boyfriend and lost her job – all in the space of a month. Fast forward six years, and West – now a selftaught martial artist and stunt person – is set to make her big-screen debut in Marvel’s Black Widow, alongside Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh. “Martial arts were like this golden elixir,” she says of teaching herself daring sword-twirling antics and eye-popping knife tricks. She would post videos to Instagram, where she quickly amassed in excess of 300,000 followers, among them an agent who helped her land the role as one of a team of black widows – villainous Russian assassins. “There…

in fine form

The fine jewellery industry can seem an intimidating one to those looking up at its exquisitely gem-set ivory tower from beyond its walls. Entry is a particular challenge for anyone who lacks the finances or industry connections to break through its high-security doors. And if you are a black student or jeweller, there is a chance you will also encounter racial discrimination along the way. A mixture of systemic racism, unconscious bias and overt prejudice means that many people of colour lack the opportunities to enter, let alone thrive, in the trade. Few schoolchildren are aware it is even an option. Jeweller Melanie Eddy says that no black jewellery student has graduated from the MA jewellery design programme at Central Saint Martins (of which she herself is an alumna) in…
