There’s much talk of slow fashion in the wake of the tumultuous past few months, and the need for the industry and consumers to be more mindful. However, as a style magazine, our job is to show you the trends and inspire you to make the right decisions when it comes to your wardrobe. Some of autumn’s key looks are timeless, others are bold statements. A woman whose style epitomises both is our cover star, Sofia Sanchez de Betak, the global traveller, fashion muse and designer. Sofia’s nomadic lifestyle has influenced her own brand, Chufy – hear about her colourful adventures on page 34.We also speak to three artisan creatives who believe in quality and craftsmanship, plus we introduce the black-owned beauty and fashion brands to champion.

aw20 trend report

R POWER OF WOMEN The codes of the female wardrobe occupied the minds of many designers during fashion month. Fendi’s show was all about the strength of women, with dramatic plays on volume; at Miu Miu, we saw 40s-inspired cocktail gowns and at Brock Collection, classic empire lines and delicate face veils. Style tip Face-covering veils will be all the rage come party season. Ensure you opt for dark and delicate, shorter styles that feel more bijou than bride VICTORIAN DRAMA There is a level of decadence associated with the Victorian era, from velvet dresses and pie-crust collars, to pointed-toe, heeled boots. This season, we saw Paco Rabanne and Elie Saab incorporate the trend into their collections via neatly nipped waists and floral brocades. Style tip Work the look into your everyday wardrobe with subtly puffed shoulders and…

back to black

A veil of darkness shrouded the AW20 runways, with many designers showcasing a series of bold all-black looks. We saw this done best at Valentino, where creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli showcased his opening 25 head-to-toe looks as a means to explore the stereotypes of the female silhouette. HAUTE SOCIETY Hedi Slimane has firmly embedded 70s Parisian bourgeois as the new Celine look; all foppish frilled-front blouses and country check knee-length skirts. This season, however, feels more prosaic than parody, and you’ll most likely already have the key components hanging in your wardrobe. Style tip Considered styling is the key to mastering this look. Take inspiration from Hermès and Chloé – it’s all about belted blazers, sharp tailoring and a nonchalant attitude…

wear your greens

It’s clear that green is the official colour of the season, appearing in all shades, from mint at Paco Rabanne to emerald at Elie Saab. Is this green wave representative of the industry’s shifting focus to sustainability and addressing climate change? Maybe. Is it a nod to singer of the moment, Billie Eilish’s hair? Possibly that, too. PRINT WORKS Designers have drawn inspiration from the works of all kinds of artists this season. Roksanda opted for expressionist collages inspired by Lee Krasner, Givenchy had art-deco graphics nodding to Helena Almeida, while Kenzo’s creative director delved into the brand’s own painterly archives. Style tip No single print stole the limelight this season, it’s time to embrace them all. Rather than clashing prints, stick to one pattern in varying shades a la Givenchy TEEN SPIRIT Designers adopted a…
