editor’s letter

A good magazine – and I hope you’ll agree that Town & Country is one – tends to evolve over time, from a series of conversations between the people who create it together, as well as with those we feature in our pages and, of course, you, our readers. Recently, I’ve discovered (thanks to your letters and emails) that we have a growing circulation abroad as well as in the United Kingdom, and this sense of kinship thrills me, given our love of sharing the stories that are at the heart of an ancient realm. Sometimes, these are the ones that we heard as children, and then read to our own children. Hence in this issue, when we discovered that our cover star Hayley Atwell is starring in a…

contributors – autumn 2018

FRANCES HEDGES As Sotheby’s London launches its first auction dedicated solely to lots made from gold, our associate editor examines the enduring allure of this precious metal on page 138. She also edits the Town & Country website and has been known to bake the most delectable of butternut squash pies. Autumn has arrived when… ‘I feel a childlike urge to run around collecting conkers.’ A favourite country walk ‘Squelching through the damp grass on Oxford’s Port Meadow, with the promise of a large glass of wine in the Trout pub at the end.’ A London landmark you’d like to live in ‘The Geffrye Museum, with its interiors from centuries past. I could live in a different era every night!’ FIE LUCAN The 8th Countess of Lucan discusses rebranding…

pippa middleton’s baby shower

With a guest list likely to include two Princes, a Princess and at least one Duchess, this is surely the most eagerly anticipated society event since Meghan and Harry’s nuptials. The style stakes are similarly high: think pink – and baby blue and other soft pastel shades in deliciously feminine shapes. A floral-print dress by Dolce & Gabbana, a candy-coloured Louis Vuitton bag and delicate Tabitha Simmons kitten heels will respectfully show off your fashionable flair.PHOTOGRAPHS: GETTY IMAGES, REX FEATURES, PIXELATE.

meghan markle’s royaltour

Nothing exemplifies the idea of power dressing like a Royal tour, where the wardrobe is entirely an exercise in diplomacy. The new Duchess of Sussex should embark on her first visit to Australia wearing Ralph & Russo, of course: the brand’s designer Tamara Ralph comes from Sydney, where Prince Harry is hosting the Invictus Games this October. Sidestepping the evening-tuxedo question, a glorious velvet gown by Erdem, British-based but Canadian-born, is another elegant tribute to the Commonwealth.PHOTOGRAPHS: GETTY IMAGES, REX FEATURES, PIXELATE.

the burghley horse trials

Any sporting event that takes place in the English countryside will have its sartorial limitations. Favour stylish practicality with a tweed Holland & Holland skirt, a Fendi sweater and stout Dubarry boots; don’t forget a William & Son umbrella in a chic neutral tone. Chloé’s equestrian-print bucket bag offers a witty flourish that won’t frighten the horses.PHOTOGRAPHS: PHILIP SINDEN, GETTY IMAGES, PIXELATE.SEE STOCKISTS FOR DETAILS. ■…

a shooting party at sandringham

This is neither the time nor place for experimentation: embrace both tradition and utility with a wardrobe of trusty tweeds and woodland tones. Purdey, Holland & Holland and William & Son are the brands to note – the more weathered the better, of course. Add detail through accessories: a diamond Niquesa ring, perhaps, or a jaunty pheasant lapel pin.PHOTOGRAPHS: TOM CRAIG, GETTY IMAGES, REX FEATURES, PIXELATE.SEE STOCKISTS FOR DETAILS. ■…
