the power of change

FROM LEFT Seaside style (page 73); finding positives in 2020 and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris (page 20) For this, our final issue in 2020, there felt no better theme to explore than change. Perhaps a year ago, the fear, uncertainty and challenges brought by a global pandemic would have seemed insurmountable. And yet, here we are. We have faced the loss of loved ones, economic instability, the immense pressure on the NHS, many months of lockdown in our homes, trying to do our jobs (if we still have them) from our kitchen tables, homeschooling our children, putting plans on hold – putting life on hold. And yet, here we are. Through the darkest of times, there have been some moments of light. The United States of America has just elected Democrat Joe Biden…

say it, write it, share it.

SEEN AND HEARD In our November issue, Candice Brathwaite mused on how, in the Black community, women are often expected to be silent and submissive. But, she explains, she’s determined to teach her daughter to speak up. This resonated with Helen Lapentti, echoing experiences from her own life. ‘Like Candice’s husband, I come from a conservative background, mine being South American,’ she wrote. ‘My father in particular was very old-fashioned and domineering. I moved to England 23 years ago and, over time, I have learned to identify and recognise the challenges that such an upbringing has brought. However, it wasn’t until reading this article that I could recognise the impact that suppressing my opinions, purely because I’m a woman, has had on me. The article’s impact went further: it made me reflect…

spotlight on rouje

Damas was modelling in her home town of Paris when she started to upload stylish but laissez-faire pictures of herself on to social media platforms – before Instagram was even a thing. Gaining a huge following and creating sell-out capsule lines with brands such as Reformation, she decided it was time to make her own mark. ‘It felt a necessity to me to create something on my own, and be active instead of being dependent of the desire of clients to work as a model,’ she explains. In 2016, Damas launched her ready-to-wear brand, Rouje, exclusively online. Her collections are designed by women for women, which is a huge part of their appeal. ‘I believe this is an important part of our success, as we create clothes we want to wear…

the fashion influencer

LUXE LOUNGERS I spent most of last year waxing lyrical about the importance of a chic working-from-home wardrobe. Did I take my own advice? No! And now I find myself in need of a practical and polished matchy lounge suit. NYC label The Frankie Shop’s lilac combo is my favourite, and is available in macaron shades of blush, baby blue and lemon. See page 12 for more options and tips on how to style them. THE HI/LOW This holiday season, I’ll be taking inspiration from Alexa Chung and busting out a statement dress (never underestimate the mood-boosting power of a fabulous dress), but giving it a relaxed neighbourhood vibe with retro trainers and a belted trench. It’s the perfect mix when you want to feel special but have nowhere to go. ONE TO WATCH Ethical,…
