This letter is a particularly hard one to write, a month into lockdown, uncertain of how our lives will look when the issue comes out. It seems frivolous to enthuse about accessories, but if the escapism of beautiful design can help lift your mood, then job done. Forever mindful to fill our pages with women who ooze positivity and kindness, we chose cover star Vick Hope. She’s using her voice on TV and radio to help young people experiencing anxiety during the pandemic – read what motivates the Amnesty International ambassador. Plus, we tackle unloved lips and give expert advice on stress-related hair loss. Sound familiar? Stay with us, we can do this!…

THE FINISHING TOUCHES These covetable accessories, handpicked by us, will give you the opportunity to turn any outfit into a fabulous one! THE GREAT GETAWAY Replete with fringed bags, raffia hats, woven jewellery and a plethora of beaded necklaces and shells, the SS21 collections provided some much-needed escapism with an ongoing summer theme.
