our new manifesto

Pucker up. If mistletoe kisses are off the agenda, take matters on to your own hands, courtesy of Hotlips by Solange rings. Make yours a double. TL 180 x Alighieri’s chain strap bag can also be worn as a necklace. Nifty. Go big and stay home. Not going out this party season? Bring the mega-watt festive fabulosity to you. Log off. Take a screen break with designer Supriya Lele and photographer Jamie Hawkesworth’s new book, Narmada . 100% of profits go to charity Girl Rising. Don’t save metallics for after dark. The Fendi Roma Holiday collection includes a K-way windbreaker in suitably seasonal gold. And relax… Posh PJs – like Danish brand Helmstedt’s exclusive Browns collection – make early nights (even more) enticing. PHOTOS:JAMIE HAWKESWORTH, JASON LLOYD-EVANS…

marcus rashford: children ’ s champion

He’s been a star to Manchester United and England fans for some time, but this year Marcus Rashford became a hero off the pitch for his efforts to combat child hunger. When schools closed in March, the footballer, now 23, partnered with poverty and food waste charity FareShare. Inspired by his own childhood, he wanted to help feed children who relied on free school meals – he subsequently helped raise over £20 million. In June, with an open letter calling for an end to child food poverty, he pressured the Government into a U-turn as they finally agreed to extend free school meals over the summer holidays, as they had done during the Easter break. In October, he was awarded an MBE, but he wasn’t done. With the Government again refusing to fund…

4 friendships are vital

1. WE TOOK IT OUTSIDE Out is truly the new in. Alfresco meet-ups – bench dates, distanced walks – are the acceptable way to catch up IRL. They’ve felt strangely pressured, with even a simple ‘How are you?’ mutating into a relative, loaded question. It’s not like a Zoom meeting where you can dress well from the waist up, angle your camera away from your clutter and flick on a ring light. Your pals know you; they eyeball your truths in the stark light of day. My tip: remember everyone feels a bit odd, and meetings with friends should be more like those at the Quaker Meeting House, with people speaking when they choose around a sacred silence. Amen to that. 2. WE RECALIBRATED In terms of the new normal, everyone is at…

6 the pictures said it all

JANUARY Devastating bushfires raged in Australia, burning 11 million hectares of land, leaving at least 42 people dead and killing or maiming nearly 3 billion animals. 19 JANUARY The picture the world had been waiting for. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt greeted each other warmly at the SAG Awards – and set off a chain reaction of ‘will they, won’t they’ fantasies. 4 AUGUST A huge explosion tore apart Beirut – not terrorism but illegally stored chemicals. It killed at least 204 and left 300,000 homeless. This striking Instagram image (left) showed a woman who’d given birth in the immediate aftermath, covered in broken glass and debris. 13 JUNE Black Lives Matter protestor Patrick Hutchinson became the hero of the summer when he carried an injured counter-protestor to safety. He later said he…

welcome to the issue

How do you sum up a year like this one? It feels near impossible. But while 2020 has been traumatic and tough, it also felt right to look for the positives that have emerged from the pandemic. The most important has perhaps been a nation honouring frontline NHS workers, who put themselves at extraordinary risk to fight an unknown virus at a time the rest of us were retreating into lockdown. But there have been others, too. Proof that, despite what companies resistant to flexible working may have said in the past, many can work productively from home. A collective desire to make sure that George Floyd’s murder marked a sea-change in actively fighting racism. And a new appreciation of the solace that a haircut, a socially-distanced walk with friends,…
