“the key for women to succeed is to empower each other, be kind and help one another”

THIS MONTH SEES the Australian women’s national soccer team kick off at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. Whether you’re an avid football fan or not, you won’t want to miss cheering Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! (what else?) as the Matildas take on Italy, Brazil and Jamaica. In fact, your support is paramount. The games will inevitably play out against a conversation around sexism in sport in the wake of 28 members of the US women’s national team — the reigning World Cup champions — suing their governing body, US Soccer Federation, for “institutionalised gender discrimination”. We caught up with Matildas captain Samantha Kerr just days after the news broke at the launch of the Nike World Cup kit. Wise beyond her 25 years, she tells us (p60) that the…

ALIA WILHELM @aliiiiia From working as a director’s assistant on the latest film adaption of the Jane Austen classic Emma, to creating a custom collage to illustrate “Press Play Like A Girl” on p64, no day is ever the same for this visual artist. On my playlist: The Normal People audiobook by Sally Rooney is a masterpiece. It captures the sorrow of everyday life so beautifully. On my reading list: I want to re-read all of Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novels and give Carl Jung’s stuff a whirl. On my to-do list: Starting my own line of duvets, pillows and bed sheets covered in my illustrations. On my wish list: I usually borrow books from the library, but one day I’d like to go to a bookshop and buy all of my favourites to keep in…

CARDI BE No longer reserved exclusively for trackie time, the cardigan has graduated to fully-fledged fashion piece in a medley of colour, print and texture. Button up. THE SWING OF IT We’re embracing a blast from the past and looking forward through spidery lashes. Option: team them with a Twiggy-esque line in the crease. Blame Lucy Boynton. POTATOES 2.0 Our favourite foodie Instas are heralding the return of the humble baked potato, and we want in. Brush up on the lingo (the best variations are “Dutch creams” and “hasselbacks”), and perfect your own version with guidance from chef Dan Hong (@hongsta_gram) who cooks his in clarified butter and Sydney restaurant Ester (@ester_au) who woodfire theirs. Then read Laura Goodman’s ode via her cookbook Carbs for permission to proceed. AUNTY ELAINE Former magazine editor and writer Elaine Welteroth’s…

back to the future

Sometimes you can’t go past a classic. Or in this case – a future classic. Fads come and go but black leather handbags by Saint Laurent are forever. The “YSL” detailing on the new Le 61 is a nod to the logomania trend without going to the hilt – it’ll still look good in six months, a year, two years… Let the bag work overtime by keeping the rest of the look simple – soft neutrals, breezy fabrics, all pulled together with a bold coral lip. Fresh. PHOTOGRAPHY BY ADRIAN PRICE Styling: Caroline Tran. Hair: Madison Voloshin at Vivien’sCreative. Makeup: Claire Thomson. Model: Isa Coco at Priscillas…

“It ONLY TAKES a COUPLE OF INVESTMENT PIECES to MAKE this TREND YOUR OWN” SOME TRENDS ARE PREDICTABLE, given their connection to pop culture and world events. When Kim Kardashian and Yeezy made bike shorts a thing, they suddenly infiltrated the highly-respected runways of Fendi, Dior and Prada. Hillary Clinton spent the better part of a year lighting up our screens in pantsuits of various hues, then female suiting became all the rage. After the Blade Runner remake, futuristic fashion via tiny sunglasses and iridescent accessories appeared. It was a surprise, then, that the dominant trend of AW19 referenced a style worn by middle-to-upper-class Europeans in the 18th century known as the bourgeoisie. Rebellion to our reality-TV era? Response to our Netflix obsession with period dramas? Whatever the catalyst, we’re on…

Play with scale and unexpected layers. A dress over pants is the new-season pairing. Risqué backless cut-outs put a feminine twist on traditional tartan. A burst of colour – think a cherry-red shopper or turtleneck – adds new dimension to head-to-toe pattern. Triple-plaid is the new double-denim – go for varying print sizes in a single colour scheme. Texture is key. Faux croc on nubby tweed gives new life to neutrals. Hair: Madison Voloshin at Vivien’sCreative. Makeup: ClaireThomson. Model: RubyPedersen at IMG Models…
