This issue would normally be our holiday special, but some of those trips we once took for granted are sadly in limbo. But Covid cannot cancel summer and so, instead, we’ve made it a celebration of glorious style buys that will look just as brilliant on a beach break as in your back garden. As what we’ve realised over the past year is how to adapt and that good things are worth the wait. Our cover star, Foxes, took a three-year hiatus from music to reset and she’s back stronger and more self-assured. Read her story and how she’s carving out a career worth pausing for. Plus, the small fashion brands to support, how to pimp your balcony and the products the beauty experts are packing. Enjoy!…
